Random Friday Morning Thoughts

I short summary won't do this one justice. A boy found dead in a bathtub in Frisco, the mother arrested before an ME's report put the case in complete doubt, and then seven months later both the lady and her husband were dead. Here's a long read on it

  • Biden did really well on the State of the Union although in this day and time no one is sitting through an hour long speech. But I did.

    • Let's check in on some GOP images. 

    • Was Rep. Ronny Jackson feeling uncomfortable as he was on his phone in the audience? 

    • If you want to see 21 seconds of the Republican response, check this out. It is like the first day of acting school. 

  • Oh, before I forget, we learned yesterday that Ronny Jackson has been lying about his military rank.
    Editor's note: This is not the photo that ran with the story, but it seems like a good time to remind everyone of that incident. 
  • The metroplex was far worse than Wise County yesterday.

  • I'm not sure what the purpose is of acknowledging by a press release "that its facilities appear to have been involved in an ignition of the Smokehouse Creek fire" while denying any negligence. 

  • "UVALDE, Texas (AP) — An independent report commissioned by the City of Uvalde into a deadly 2022 school shooting found that none of the city’s officers violated department policy, infuriating families of some of the 19 children and two teachers who were killed in one of the deadliest classroom shootings in U.S. history." If the "department policy" was to stand around while kids die, I suppose it is right. 

  • The last thing we need is this on the State Board of Education. 

  • Speaking of vouchers, that's a big bullet point for the Texas Oilman PAC. They want to gut public education and move tax dollars to private, unregulated Christian schools. Andy Hopper, who the PAC has thrown a ton of money at with more to come, fell in line yesterday.  

    • Sidenote #1: That voucher proposition on the Republican ballot was horribly worded. It might as well have begun with, "Do you want to follow God's Word and have your personal hard earned savings follow your precious child instead of going to cross-dressing devil worshipers?" 
    • Sidenote #2. You are not "the representative of #HD64."
  • Let's check in FBC Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress to see what message of Christian love he was spreading last night. 

  • Time which has passed since the Wise County Sheriff's Office, despite having a full male DNA profile, has failed to solve the murder of Lauren Whitener in her home at Lake Bridgeport: 4 years and 289 days.
