Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • I noticed that Breckenridge is playing Paradise this weekend. Didn't Breckenridge used to be a football powerhouse in the same classification as Bridgeport and Decatur? Has the population decreased that much. (And, by the way, they are 0-5.)
  • "Black man beaten at white supremacist rally in Charlottesville faces felony charges."  But always remember, there are "good people" on "both sides."
  • ESPN's Michael Wilbon said this about Jerry Jones' declaration that every player will stand during the anthem: "And the word that comes to my mind, I don't care who doesn't like me using it, is plantation. The players are here to serve me and they will do what I want no matter how much I pay them. They are not equal to me. That what this says to me and mine."
  • I've said it before that the NFL Draft should be compared to slavery. Players, after going through the combine and stripped down and looked at on a stage, are then drafted and have to play for a team they have no choice in and paid a salary they no longer have a say in. 
  • Make no mistake about it, if Trump ordered a nuclear strike, the military would simply say "No, we will not."
  • LSU has a problem as many members of a fraternity are arrested after a hazing incident left a student dead with an alcohol concentration of 0.495. (Good lord!) It was due to something they called "bible study" where you had to drink if you got a wrong answer during a fraternity history quiz.
  • The police officer who manhandled and handcuffed the nurse who rightfully refused to take blood from a person has been fired. Good riddance. You gave good cops a bad name due to incredible arrogance and stupidity. And nothing will destroy the career of a cop quicker than the combination of arrogance and stupidity,
  • The "Politics of Dancing" applies to the courthouse.
  • This is very confusing why he said this earlier this morning: 
  • Especially when you consider this: 
  • I'm convinced that I have people who comment on here who are brilliant and others who are as dumb as a box of rocks. (The box of rocks boys will never understand they are in the Box Of Rocks category.)
  • Always remember that the current Secretary of State and former CEO of Exxon (from Texas) believes Trump is a "moron." That is an undisputed fact.This will not end well.
  • Steve Bannon told Vanity Fair in a recorded interview that he thinks there is only a 30% chance Trump makes it for four years. That should shock Bubba to the core (assuming Bubba knows who Steve Bannon is.)
  • It is now October 12th with no appointment from the Governor of a district judge for Wise and Jack Counties. There is a primary election in March. 
  • Trump doubled down last night on his ignorance of the First Amendment.  
  • But wait, there's more! And who are these "people" he is talking about? 
  • There sure were a lot of "news stories" about Arby's new menu items yesterday. Hmmmmm.
  • The Boy Scouts will allow girls. My take: So what? Who cares? It's a private organization who gets to make their own rules.
