Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The Nunes memo was released by Trump over the objection from the Justice Department and the FBI. The Democratic memo was withheld by Trump. Ok, got it. 
  • Why does Trump enter into wars he doesn't need to? #MeToo
  • Speaking of people who aren't very smart, the disgraced Fox News star, Bill O'Reilly, came to Trump's defense and immediately got smacked down by a former Fox News star.
  • This is a little weird. Dan Patrick is donating money to Craig Estes opponent and already calling the opponent "Senator."
  • I'll say it: The Winter Olympics are kind of boring.
  • Castle Hills in Lewisville is building a community of rent houses. Check out the starting price: 
  • A U.S. drone killed 11 in Pakistan. So as warfare evolves, does the the U.S. need to be paying over $100 million each for the F-35?
  • Very random Walter Payton stat: He passed 34 times with 11 completions (with an average of 30 yards), a bizarre 8 of them went for touchdowns, and 6 were intercepted. 
  • The Messenger listed the top romantic comedies. Glaring omissions: (About Last Night with a ridiculously young Rob Lowe and Demi Moore) and the very underrated Shop Girl: “How is it possible to miss a woman whom you kept at a distance, so that when she was gone you would not miss her?"
  • I'm going to go out of a limb and say, "Yes."
  • Having a puppy is good in theory but a beating in practice.
  • VP Pence didn't make contact with the sister of the North Korean leader during the opening ceremony.  But the fact that Pence had the father of the American who was tortured by North Korea by his side put him in a dicey situation.
