Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The golf course at Robson Ranch caught fire yesterday. I actually played it a few times back in the day. 
  • The FBI didn't really need this right now. From Houston: "FBI agent kills kidnapping victim during Houston raid, reports say."
  • From the Star-Telegram about a Wise County inmate. Note: He got out yesterday.:
  • New York Times: "WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive." For a man who has nothing to hide, he is scared to death of Mueller. Why? 
  • Trump denied the above report calling it, predictably, "fake news." So who do we trust? The Times or Trump? Let's have Fox News' Sean Hannity awkwardly decide for us. This is pure gold
  • Another one bites the dust. (And he made the payment to a a junior staffer "many decades" younger than him who he called his "soul mate.") He made the decision "after prayerful reflection."
  • The White House shockingly agreed to keep and expand DACA yesterday with a "path for citizenship" for 1.8 million people (there's probably many, many more) if he could get $25 billion for The Wall. Heck, give him the money. It will never be built, and in the next election his base will be mad about DACA and the fact that Mexico isn't paying for The Wall. The boys over at Breitbart are alreadly livid. And Ann Coulter is none to pleased.
  • I'm beginning to believe the medical profession is the most disorganized profession. 
  • Tiger Woods played well yesterday and afterwards many were stunned because he has "two vertebrae fused together." That's what BagofNothing had done. The recovery is a little hard but both he and Tiger will be fine if not better than before. So many people think the surgery is the equivalent of putting a metal rod down your spine.
