Bag of Randomness

  • I’m thinking if I looked anything like Osama bin Laden, I’d at least shave the beard.  But this guy is embracing the resemblance, going as far as wearing camouflage and posing with fake weapons.
  • A Colorado man wants 25% of the bin Laden bounty.  He claims he flushed the terrorist out of the mountains.
  • I don’t see W declining Obama’s invitation to attend a 9/11 ceremony together offensive or rude or classless in any way.  The man dedicated eight hard years to this country, if he wants to stay at home, let him stay at home.  Speaking of W, Will Ferrell has a new skit impersonating him, but I didn’t think it was that funny.
  • I really have no opinion about releasing the photo(s) of a dead bin Laden.  But here are pictures of the other dead men at the compound via Reuters.  Gruesome Warning.
  • The commander of the bin Laden mission was a Longhorn (fourth paragraph).
  • It sounds like Christiane Amanpour has some very good sources.
  • Gov Good Hair and other Texas Republicans like Senator John Cornyn, the same folks who are always complaining that the federal government is spending too much and how federal budgets need to be slashed and how Texas can take care of itself, are upset that Obama hasn’t granted a federal declaration for emergency regarding the Texas wildfires, which would clear the path for federal aid.  Heck, Gov Good Hair is even upset that Alabama, which I believe had over 250 deaths (and much more residential damage) due to the tornadoes, has received aid over the two deaths in Texas that resulted in a bunch of lake houses being destroyed.  Heck, I saw a resident on CBS 11 being interviewed saying that most of those houses that were destroyed were just vacation homes, and probably only 5% use those houses as a permanent residence.  Of course in all of their grandstanding they fail to recognize that Texas has already been allocated 16 fire management assistance grants that provide financial support for the specific purpose of fighting fires, and will receive six more additional grants.
  • I often am annoyed that the Texas Rangers share the same name as the New York Rangers.  Sometimes I’ll see an article that states ‘Rangers’ thinking it about my local sports team, only to find it was about that hockey team in the northeast.  I bet Giants fans of San Fransisco and New York feel the same way.
  • Have you ever wanted to watch a movie that was considered to have such bad acting that you would be entertained?  After finding out this Jessica Simpson movie was released in Russia and Bulgaria and then straight to DVD in the U.S., this is definitely a must see.

    Not impressed with Gov. Good Hair (haven't ever been very impressed) and his reference to the situation in Alabama. If you want something for Texas just say so, but please don't compare the fires to the loss of human life in the tornadoes in Alabama. People are still missing in the debris!…..Thousands of homes and businesses are gone. There is no comparison. Texan born and bred and proud of it, but not to the point that I fail to feel for those people in Alabama and the rest of the South that have lost everything… including many family members.

    It warms my heart to know that people such as yourself would much rather point out the Governor Perry verses Federal Government situation than to worry about the people who lost everything in those fires.

      for just saying……My 85 year old mother lost her home and everything she owned in a Texas wild fire in Feb 2009. My family along with volunteer firemen fought the fire and were witness to the destruction of these types of fires. My mother lost everything material she owned, but she has her life. I think it is perhaps fair to say that I have many feelings for those in Texas who lost homes and the families of the two firefighters who gave their lives. I can replace my mother's house. I cannot replace my mother….
      Hundreds of people in Alabama lost mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children……just sayin…..

    Just one year ago Feb my mother ( who is 85 years old) lost her home and everything she owns except the clothes on her back to a wild fire in Texas.. I was there fighting the fire trying to save our home place. Please, I know, as does my family what devastion is done by wild fires. My mother is alive… hundreds in Alabama are not…….just sayin….. walk a few in someone else's shoes ….

    For just sayin………my 85 year old mother lost her home and everything she owns to a Texas wild fire last February. I was there and fought the fire along with volunteers and the rest of my family. My mother lost all her material possessions…….She has her life… I am keenly aware of what happens with a wild fire.

    I've been wondering how the Special Forces/Delta Force feel about the SEALs exclusively handling this mission, which was a land operation. Several times in the past few days a comparison was made by the news reporters between this mission and the failed emabassy hostage rescue operation in Iran. That mission was a Delta Force operation. There is always a fierce rivalry between the service branches. I can't believe the Army's Special Forces' units are happy about not playing any role and reading in every other news account that the SEALs are the "elite of the elite".
