Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

You can still Google the words "Ridiculously Photogenic Football Player" and 
this photo will come up. 

  • The auto strike has now come to Arlington. That is over 5,000 workers. 

  • Wise County is right in the heart of this. 

  • Jenna Ellis issued a "tearful apology" in the Trump Georgia Election Scheme case yesterday as she pled guilty to a felony. "If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges. . . . I relied on others, including lawyers with many more years of experience than I, to provide me with true and reliable information, especially since my role involved speaking to the media and to legislators in various states." Baloney. She knew that she was peddling a lie. 

    • She, along with everyone else involved in the Election Denial Scam, are grifters. Flashback from a little over a month ago:

  • And the day kept getting worse for Trump in that later there was another development in the federal D.C. Insurrection case.

  • Bad decision.

  • House Cluster Continues.
    • The Republicans went through five closed door votes yesterday in order to elect Tom Emmer as their nominee for the House Speaker. They only step left was to take it to the floor to see if he could get 217 votes. Less than two hours later, he withdrew his name. Even Fox News called it "chaos." 

    • Late last night they tried again to get another nominee and chose election denier Mike Johnson.  Now we will see if he can get to 217.


    • Wise County's troubled representative Ronny Jackson yesterday morning threw his support, the third different person he has given his "full support", to someone who can't even win the nomination behind closed doors.

  • What's wrong with the B-52s? I'm withdrawing my Biden support!

  • I think Baylor would have settled a long time ago for that amount

  • I posted this story yesterday, but this is a more accurate headline. 

  • Very legal nerdy stuff: The case originated out of Wichita Falls and just got affirmed with a dissent. It's the weird case of a stepparent prosecuted for emailing a photo to himself.  He had found the nude picture on his stepdaughter's phone, but he and his wife, as part of a house rule, had full access to the phone including the password in order to monitor her activities. It doesn't matter why he emailed it to himself so long as he did it "with intent to invade [her] privacy." There seems to be a lot of legal issues which weren't addressed.
