Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Texas hospitalizations: They've only been slight declines, but there have been five straight days of them. That hasn't happen since the rise in October began. (But a Baylor student died of COVID yesterday.)

  • Well the little Frisco real estate broker was finally arrested on Friday.  What's more shocking? That she immediately asked Trump for a pardon or that she actually lives in a townhome in Carrollton? (Side note: Did you know this gal is 50 year old? Dare I say she's a pretty good lookin' little terrorist?)

  • But the little fireball is always closing. Two examples:

  • We had a twofer: A county commission and a "cowboy for Trump" was arrested

  • If you haven't seen the 12 minute video released by the The New Yorker of the storming of the Capitol, you need to.
    • Couple of random shot:
      Going through Ted Cruz's notes. 

    • The Evil Empire was represented! 

    • Of course, they said a prayer. 

    • Why is this?

  • So I spend almost all of Friday's Random Thoughts on how you're an idiot if you think Trump is going to declare Martial Law under the Insurrection Act and then the idiot My Pillow Guy shows up at the Oval Office Friday afternoon carrying notes about Martial Law and the Insurrection Act. (It sounds like even Trump didn't listen to him.)

  • Wall Street Journal:  Trump's tweet of "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!" inspired the Proud Boys. (Who didn't know that?) 

  • Take a look at four female new Republican Congressmen twitter accounts. The QAnon supporting Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) absolutely dwarfs the others in followers. That would seem to be a Republican problem. And Republican Senator Ben Sasse penned an article this weekend in The Atlantic saying just that. 

  • From last Friday in Austin. The dude is wearing overalls. 

  • You know what I'm not ruling out? Chief Justice Roberts, who presides over Trump's impeachment trial, dismissing the case on the Motion of Trump for want of jurisdiction, To-wit: You can't impeach a president no longer in office. 
  • Here's a great question. What if Trump actually did form a third party? And what if on the next November ballot in 2022 in Wise County for a local county wide race, Candidate A was from the Trump Party and Candidate B was from the Republican Party. Which one wins? If I'm the Republican candidate, I'd be scared to death.
