Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

I stand by that. And the trial went about as well as you would expect . . . 

  • It didn't look good when it happened.

    • One of my only experiences in Matamoras was couple of hours trip across the border as a boy with my family while on vacation. It was the first time I ever saw true poverty as little girls came up to us selling candy. That memory has stayed with me all my life and had a profound impact on me. But that trip would not be made today. 
  • Oklahoma legalized medical marijuana (where it is easy to get a card), but for some reason yesterday the state overwhelming rejected recreational weed. 

  • You've probably seen the video of this guy who was taken down by passengers. I'm kind of shocked he wasn't subdued the second he stood up after his rant.

  • He continues to try and milk this, and I'm not sure what his angle is. In the days immediately after he got kicked out the hotel, he called into a radio station and basically admitted to being drunk and definitely said he didn't remember what the conversation was about.  He's in not position to refute anything. 

  • Cities can't do this no matter how many headlines you see.

  • Trump has become a full blown Seditionist and is now openly supporting the January 6th Insurrection. He added this to his promise for "retribution" yesterday. This is all so mind-blowing when you take a step back. I never thought I'd see it in my lifetime.

  • Ironically, we learned last night from the Dominion lawsuit against Fox News that Tucker Carlson actually despises Trump: "I hate him passionately."   

  • The Bridgeport Chief of Police visited the Texas Peace Officers Memorial in Austin yesterday and pointed out the name of Randy White who was killed in the line of duty in Bridgeport on April 2, 2009.

  • I think every Methodist church in Wise County is staying within the fold. 

  • Quarterback salaries in the NFL are way out of whack based upon what has happened in the last 48 hours: 
    • $94 million guaranteed for this guy?

    • $100 million guaranteed for this guy?

  • I'll do the Liberally Lean March Madness Pick 'Em Tourney again this year. It'll be up Monday.
