Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Well, Kim Jong Un went and visited with China's president. This will work out well. Those two are teaming up together. 
  • And another (Arizona): 
  • I actually mentioned a couple of weeks ago how this guy was the target of a cheap shot by a Baylor player when he was at TCU. Maybe it did cause a brain injury. These facts, if true, are bad. And the Seattle Seahawks immediately cut him: 
  • I should have fired it up yesterday.
  • Any of you boys ever taken that train from Fort Worth to Austin?
  • Mexico played Croatia at JerryWorld yesterday. You say you don't care? Many do: 80,000 showed up. 
  • On this day (well, yesterday) in 1977. I had never heard of this
  • Things got a little tense at a Sacramento City Council meeting in light of the shooting of Stephon Clark 20 times by police. The guy on the right is his brother.
  • Arlington High School is on lock down this morning, but it appears only to be as a precaution. 
  • "Former Disney Channel star Caroline Sunshine has traded her Mickey Mouse hat for a White House hard pass. Sunshine, 22, is the newest member of President Trump’s White House press team." Say what?

If you are speaking of the Amtrak train, it's called The Eagle. It runs from Chicago to San Antonio. We rode it one year to San Antonio in a deluxe bedroom car, then were connected to the Sunset Limited that runs from San Antonio to Los Angeles, then boarded the Coastal Starlight from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Quite an adventure!

From reading the article, it appears that she has gotten some experience from working as an intern with Kevin McCarthy and the California Republican Party.

Did you complain when Trump hired the guy from "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle?" Sounds to me as if she has a little more experience than he did!

So from the brother's behavior it appears unlawful behavior runs in the Clark family.
Watch the helicopter and bodycam video- it is easy to understand why the cops felt there was a threat and fired. Their conduct after the shooting is where they will hang themselves.

Im as liberal as they come, but if i were a cop in that Sacramento CC meeting and that guy, ranting and racing, jumped up on the desk like that I'd put him down. Don't act like that won't be like that.

"And Another"
There is a lot more assaults on children by teachers than shootings.
Do we need a ban on teachers or an armed guard for every classroom?
Maybe assaults are not worthy of so much mass media attention.

Hey brother, too bad you didn't jump in your brother's face like that regarding his fascination with busting car windows and hurting people. It's a little late now to be angry with someone who is not responsible for what happened. Oddly enough, if your brother was not ransacking the neighborhood, he would not have been noticed by those hired to protect the people being victimized. And if your brother would have owned up to his criminal acts instead of running. But yes, you are absolutely right...he did not deserve to be shot and killed. Not at all. He just deserved to have everything he owned and his home busted to pieces as well.

Any mention of Tenerife or the Canary Islands reminds me of that aviation disaster.

Mexico vs Croatia draws 80,000 spectators. Who knew there were that many Croatian soccer fans in this area?

Despite the funny sounding name and the Disney association, Caroline Sunshine apparently has some cred in politics, along with work in several charitable causes. Say what?

The train to Austin is notoriously unreliable. You should budget at least three extra hours for your trip.

The FBI has found that a business associate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had ongoing ties to Russian intelligence, including during the 2016 campaign when Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, were in touch with the associate, according to new court filings.

The documents, filed late Tuesday by prosecutors for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, also allege that Gates had said he knew the associate was a former officer with the Russian military intelligence service.

"Well, Kim Jong Un went and visited with China's president. This will work out well. Those two are teaming up together."

Barry, exactly what would you have Trump do differently? Please explain.

Here are the facts:

Because of ineptitude of Bush, Clinton, Bush & Obama: Kim now has a nuclear weapon (albeit a primitive one).

Best Case, Kim still can't effectively deliver his nuke on an ICBM (at least not with any precision).
Worst Case, today Kim can indiscriminately kill a few hundred thousand people with these weapons.

In any event, whether he can kill 100,000 or 1,000,000 people today, left unchecked, in 10-15 years he will no doubt be able to kill literally TENS OF MILLIONS of AMERICANS. And that is simply unacceptable.

Thank God, Trump won't allow that to happen.

Make no doubt, this may get messy and a lot of people (probably in or near South Korea) may die. But Trump did not make this mess, he simply is the first President since Ronald Reagan with the back bone to do what must be done in order to protect the American people.

And lastly, you can pretty much take everything above and insert Iran in place of North Korea. Eventually, Iran will have to be dealt with.

Hey Erney; It was Obama who hired Kumar, and Kumar did a good job. But look on the bright side, one more hot blond for Trump to boink...

Caroline Sunshine... really?!? Sounds like her pro-wrasslin' name. At least Trump didn't hire Rhonda Rousey...but the way he's flying through 'em the bottom of the barrel can't be far.

That Stephon Clark death really has brought out the blood burning point of the blacks for sure. I'm afraid the police officers are going to need to take the fall on this one. I would think after the first shot that one officer that fired 5 times would have noticed he had no weapon...looks like he was firing blindly.

In other news, an out of control Chinese space station is crashing into Earth this weekend.

Spacecraft trackers with the Aerospace Corp. predict Tiangong-1 will fall to Earth between early morning March 30 and early morning April 2, with Easter Sunday (April 1) among the likely targets.

Fascinating discussion of its probable reentry and many links to track it real-time here:

Boykin very assertive in his defense against the claims. States that Police have taken statements from himself, the woman, and a witness. Now if the witness backs him up and there are no charges...essentially he loses an NFL gig for being too stupid to not hang around a woman who does drugs and is an idiot. Classic little head thinking for the big head.

and I gotta ask, regarding "these facts, if true..." if it turns out that the incident is not as the woman has related it, were her claims ever really "facts"?

That airport in the Canary's is nothing but a gas station in the Atlantic Ocean for long haul jumbo's. They come in, line up on the tarmac, fuel trucks hustle up, people for the most part stay on, and take off again. It is a mess.

Like Triple Fake, when I hear mention of Tenerife, I always think back to that horrific airline crash. The KLM pilot was a jerk and nobody on the flight crew would call him out on his violation of flight protocol. His arrogance and the circumstances of the runaway layout combined to kill a lot of innocents that day.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte gave an unexpected green light to the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia, who had claimed in a lawsuit that payments to properties owned by Donald Trump violate the Constitution’s arcane foreign and domestic Emoluments Clauses. Messitte, who works out of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, found that the plaintiffs have standing to proceed with their case, at least with respect to the Trump International Hotel in D.C., but not properties in other states.

...

The president will surely appeal this decision, but the plaintiffs are now a step closer to broad discovery surrounding the profoundly opaque Trump business records, finances, and holdings.

Again, until we see the complete arrest record of this kid in Sacramento, I cannot and will not feel sorry for him or his family. If he was indeed the kind of orangutan his brother seems to be, and was out breaking windows (presumably to burglarize those cars?) then tough crap. The entire black community instead of these protests would do better to use his death as a teaching moment for the younger kids.

But noooooo!!! It's so much easier to blame some white guys and hold your hand out for some free stuff. That bunch needs to get control of their young men. That would be the most effective way to improve their life.
