Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • That was a freaky cold day on Saturday. I felt bad for those at Texas Motor Speedway, those who had to go to kid's baseball or softball game, and any festival that was planned.
  • I was in a Bridgeport grocery store early on Saturday morning and heard, directed at me, "Look at the big noggin' on this guy." It was a Wise County Sheriff's Office investigator.
  • There's a Bridgeport law firm who is now involved in a  Harris County lawsuit regarding Hurricane Harvey and they have a co-counsel named Muhammad Azis. I've got talk to them about the whole deal.
  • There is too much time between the primary election and the runoff election in Texas.
  • I've dogged Wise County Crime Stoppers for years. For every person placed on probation, that person pays them $50. Trust me, there is a ton of money they have collected. I've always wanted someone just to simply tell me what the balance of the account is but they won't. (However, that Messenger story about the theft the NRS did lead to a tip and an arrest.)
  • On a Ticket show on Saturday some millienals who were hosting it dogged Caddyshack because they didn't "understand the humor." We are all doomed. 
  • Oh, no! Diamond and Silk, the token African Americans on Fox News, are mad ("Uh, huh! That's right!"):

  • I don't know if Facebook "censored" them are not. If they did, there is an explanation: Facebook is a private company and can control the content in any way they wish. 
  • Here's is what you say if you are in the pulpit of a Megachurch: "You might be hurting today. You might have been passed over for a promotion at work. Your marriage might be in trouble. You might have a son or daughter who is involved with drugs.  A good friend might have said something hurtful or betrayed your trust. Your finances may be scaring you and you don't know how you will ever climb out of that debt. But let me send this message to you . . . . " It's like taking candy from a baby. 
  • If my nephew and his wife were to have a baby, what does that make me? I wouldn't be an uncle. Grand uncle? Great Uncle? Second Uncle? 
  • The end to the Astros/Padre game over the weekend was a tragic comedy. I showed it to Mrs. LL and even she said, "I want to see that again." (Tied 0-0 in the bottom of the 10th.)
  • Random thought as I was watching The Masters: I don't like Jordan Spieth, but I don't know why.
  • There is a weird double death in an "upscale" home in Collin County. Once again, cops say there is "no danger to the public" but don't tell us what happened. 
  • There was another gas attack in Syria that killed children. Warning: This is hard to watch. Our  useless bombing of their air strip with 59 Tomahawk missiles that did less damage than a Molotov cocktail (the airport was functioning again within 48 hours) didn't do much good.  #MAGA
  • And he still shot a 65 on Saturday:
  • There was a fire at Trump Tower this weekend. A person died. Firefighters were hurt.

  • Trump will be Trump in response:
  • Mark Zuckerberg will appear before a Congressional committee this week. Take this to the bank: He will have an incredibly awkward, nervous, and stumbling performance. It's not that he's not a brilliant guy, he just can't handle being in the spotlight.

Re Diamond and Silk v Facebook's censoring them: "Because it can" is not an explanation. Explanations normally address why.

If you would understand that most police information is kind of like Facebook.......it is private and you really don't need to know.

Donald Trump fought against a law that would have required sprinklers in all residential buildings in New York City, it was revealed Sunday, after a man died over the weekend in a blaze in a Trump Tower apartment.

In the wake of the fire, media reports surfaced that Trump had opposed legislation in the late 1990s that would have required sprinklers to be fitted in all residential buildings. The New York Daily News reported that, following two deadly fires in the city in 1998, Mayor Rudy Giuliani proposed legislation requiring landlords to retrofit their buildings with sprinklers, if they didn’t already have them.

Trump lobbied hard against the proposal, calling a dozen council members to argue against it, according to a January 1999 article in the New York Post.

The law that was eventually signed in 1999 allowed existing buildings — such as Trump Tower, built in 1983 — to be exempt from sprinkler requirements. Trump Tower only has sprinklers on the first 10 floors, which have commercial tenants.

In 1999, Trump said sprinklers made people feel safer, but he didn't see the point of them in high-rises, The New York Times reported.

You do understand that, many times, police strategically hold back details on "what happened" at a crime scene in order to leave possible the ability to solve the case based on someone knowing something they shouldn't, unless they were there. Blab details to the world, and then you can't nail anyone for knowing those details. And yet, they might know full well there is no danger to the public, and be able to share that.

You hate Jordan Spieth because he is white, wholesome, successful, intelligent and from the south. He doesn't have a hard luck story, he doesn't get into trouble and you want to hate him for being privileged in the same way you were and out of some weird guilt or preconceived notion he should end up like Johnny Manziel! Liberals like you are the worst, always filtering your opinion of people through some complex social microscope instead of just judging on the content of their character.

Obviously, when facebook censors users it does not have First Amendment implications.

But facebook censoring someone isn't the same as when I block someone from my personal blog. It's not like if I told someone to leave my house for something they've said.

Facebook is an international forum for exchanging thoughts and images and has worked hard to be a primary means of communication between people. It has serious implications if certain ideas or images are removed from the spectrum of permissible communication.

So no, there's no legal redress for a private company like this removing certain viewpoints... but should there be?

From Saturday Night Live this weekend:

“So now Trump is just sending the National Guard, not even the Army? This is such a Trump move. He promises a big, beautiful wall, and then the wall becomes a fence, and then the fence becomes the Army, and then the Army becomes the National Guard. Pretty soon it’s just going to be a 'Beware of Dog' sign.”

Dammit, they forgot to mention that Mexico has to buy the Beware of Dog sign!

I'm sure that more property owners than President Trump worked against the sprinkler ordinance that was proposed in 1999. Statistically, older building built to older codes with greater density of occupation are much more fatal in fires than high rise building built in the 1980's, with fire and smoke detection systems, fire resistant walls separating apartments, and fire resistant doors that stop the spread of the fire.
If NYC were worried about fire suppression, they would have pushed for sprinklers and fire upgrades in smaller building where there may be more people living in one apartment and nothing built into the building to stop the spread of fire and smoke.
As it is, the fire was largely contained in one apartment, no cause has been given but the occupant was in financial ruin.

To Barry...
This is the fourth time in seven days, two days were weekend days, that you've posted something not only racist but extremely demeaning regarding black Americans. I've come to believe you're so eaten up with hatred for Trump that you feel comfortable expressing the hatred and animus you feel for other people that you're oblivious to how far you've let slip your mask of tolerance.

1. On April 2, 2018 You called a young black male, who attained the honour of becoming a congressional intern, a "token." Clearly, you know absolutely NOTHING about what it takes to become a congressional intern, yet you felt comfortable disparaging the accomplishment of a young black male merely because he was uppity enough to fill a position you felt he couldn't achieve unless he was a "token."

2. On April 4, 2018 you boldly declared "Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered 50 years ago today. His dream has never come true." More proof that you believe blacks like Barack Obama, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice, Dr. Ben Carson, Thurgood Marshall, Ursula Burns and Oprah Winfrey didn't achieve their success due to their own merit but merely because they're "tokens." However, you did go on to let us know that you do find black people entertaining.

3. On April 6, 2018 You called two nationally known conservative black female commentators a "clown act." and speculated on how well received they were by older white males. It stands to reason if the Fox News viewers didn't like Diamond and Silk they'd not have a weekly spot on Watter's World. Barry, just because an old white racist guy like you hate opinionated black women doesn't mean all white men are racist, like you.

4. On April 9, 2018 You yet again targeted Diamond and Silk and threw down your typical "token" comment to demean blacks you feel have become uppity and stepped out of line.

My question is, do you call blacks nigger and boy in private with your other racist friends and family or do you just use those words in your head when you sigh in relief that your daughters have only brought home white boyfriends because they know better than to bring home a black boy?

Barry, you're a racist. You believe that blacks can't achieve success unless it's handed to them by white people. You believe that successful black people are either tokens of Republicans or validation of Democrats.

Everyone was wrong, Obama wasn't our first African president, Trump is. The brazenness of the corruption in his administration is only outdone by a few of the 50-odd leaders of African countries.

PANAMA CITY (AP) — U.S. President Donald Trump’s company appealed directly to Panama’s president to intervene in its fight over control of a luxury hotel, even invoking a treaty between the two countries, in what ethics experts say was a blatant mingling of Trump’s business and government interests.

That appeal in a letter last month from lawyers for the Trump Organization to Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela was apparently unsuccessful — an emergency arbitrator days later declined to reinstate the Trump management team to the waterfront hotel in Panama City. But it provides hard proof of exactly the kind of conflict experts feared when Trump refused to divest from a sprawling empire that includes hotels, golf courses, licensing deals and other interests in more than 20 countries.

“This could be the clearest example we’ve seen of a conflict of interest stemming from the president’s role as head of state in connection with other countries and his business interests,” said Danielle Brian, executive director of The Project on Government Oversight, a Washington ethics and good government organization....

I don't know who is racist and who isn't, so I don't generally throw around the epithet.

However, the fact that, say, Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire doesn't mean that African Americans aren't statistically more likely to be economically disadvantaged or that they don't face discrimination.

Any beginning sociology textbook is going to acknowledge that overt and legalized discrimination has fallen precipitously (thank God) since the 1960s. But there's a tendency for many to see the improvements and declare "Problem solved!"

I don't believe we're there yet. I don't believe that MLK, had he lived, would have rolled out a "Mission accomplished!" banner and retired.

So I'm just gonna discount your little story as being unnecessary nonsense. You made no point that I could determine. Go back to your comic book world. It must make more sense in your head than the real world.
