Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Ok, that was a little harsh, but that salary was a scam. As for an update on Bristol Palin, it looks like she works in real estate in Austin.  

  •  Royal Family news this morning. He was married to Queen Elizabeth, 94, for 74 years.

  • Update on Prince Philip's death per Fox News: A black woman killed him.  

  • A play in five Acts. 
    • Act I: Yesterday morning we got an update about Wednesday's mass shooting. 

    • Act II: At around 11:00 a.m., President Biden says something must be done. 

    • Act III: At 11:45 a.m., Gov. Abbott, on cue, lies about "take away our guns" and promises to defy federal law.  

    • Act IV: Less than three hours later, there is another Texas Mass Shooting. 


    • Act V: Gov. Abbott offer his Thoughts and Prayers.

  • Far right wing radio was going crazy that President Biden said that none of the Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment, are absolute. That's Constitutional Law 101.  Freedom of Speech doesn't allow you to solicit someone to murder. Freedom of the Press doesn't allow  defamation. Freedom of Religion doesn't allow you to sacrifice your eldest at an alter. Freedom of Assembly didn't allow you to occupy the Capitol on January 6th. This ain't hard. 

  • Another incumbent Decatur School Board member has dropped out of his race for re-election citing the uncomfortable state of politics.  
  • Never pay the pimp directly via Venmo. 

  • I had thought that getting a conviction of Derek Chauvin in the trial might be dicey. But these prosecutors have gone all out and are shockingly good. How they made the science behind the death interesting was a work of art yesterday. Computer animations. Graphics. 

  • The Texas Senate yesterday voted to pass a law that forces any professional sports team that has any government contract to play the National Anthem before every game. What's next? Being required to kneel, bow, and confess our undying allegiance to the government before using a public road or entering a public building?

  • Listening to the Mets' own announcers getting bent out shape because of New York winning the game due to the batter leaning into a pitch which was a strike is pretty entertaining. Video.

  • Embarrassing: Gary Player's son obviously holding up a golf sleeve for the cameras as part of an under the table advertisement payola at the ceremonial start at The Masters yesterday. 

  • Time which has passed since the Wise County Sheriff's Office has failed to solve the murder of Lauren Whitener in her home at Lake Bridgeport: 644 days.
  • Messenger: Above the Fold
