Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Remember when there were small earthquakes happening all the time around North Texas? They ended about the time that fracking stopped.

  • As Israel continues to haphazardly bomb Gaza, the U.S. is scrambling to try to keep the area from spiraling out of control. In Gaza, 9,700 have died so far. "Israel dropped almost as many bombs in Gaza in one week as the U.S. did in Afghanistan in one year -- the heaviest year." And Gaza is a fraction of the size of Afghanistan.

  • Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority
    in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday.

    • But back home, the morons continue to act like morons. What's next? Concentration camps? Who else you want to round up? The Japanese for old times' sake? It should could at no surprise that early co-sponsors include Wise County's representative Ronny Jackson. Oh, and the Jewish Space Laser Congresswoman has also signed on. (The bill has no chance of passing.)

  • I'm surprised this was the only incident that happened at the Rangers parade. The man fired up into the air after a parking spot dispute. 

  • He killed the immigration bill of David Spiller (R-Jacksboro) and then this was announced on Saturday. 

    • Uh . . . . late last week he was with Trump. 

  • I don't believe there’s ever been a moment in U.S. history when the frontrunner for the presidency was openly promising a vengeful autocracy.

    • And he's make no secret about it. (Gifted link.) I'm beginning to believe almost half of Americans just want to blow it all up. 

  • From the very start, this has been something very, very weird about this case. I don't think we have all the facts at all.
  • We are all suckers. Exxon just reported a net income for the last three months of $19.6 billion (that's $19,600,000,000.00)
  • Warehouse sales: They just keep coming. And you've probably seen these two: "Both industrial buildings are in the DFW Point35 business park off Harmon Road near Interstate 35W." They are the brand new ones. 

  • It's high school playoff time. By my count, there are a whopping 10 teams which got in with 2-8 records. 
    • Locally, it seems a little unfair that 9-1 Paradise plays 8-2 Vernon.
