Friday Redneck Funnin’ Open Comments

Police were called to a North Houston residence last month to put a stop to a mini-riot in the home of Paul and Kimberley Ryals. A woman attempted to force her way into the home and that’s when things began to spiral out of control.

The ensuing melee included:

  • A bat
  • A gun
  • Bolt cutters
  • An ash tray
  • A grenade
  • A machete

The video at the link shows the Ryals’ yard, where there are several vehicles, including a school van. I didn’t see any chickens running around.

Just another Saturday night in Aldine.

  1. The female Shaukot was shot 3 times with a .22 and kept fighting! The report stated that she had not yet turned up at a hospital, I wonder ifn she is still alive?

  2. I’m watching Phil Archer’s report from the news video above and wondering, damn, how did Phil get so old ? When he started with Channel 2 thirty-five years ago, Archer looked like he was still in high school. I remember thinking he’d never last – he’s just too young-looking.

    Of course, I haven’t changed a bit myself….

  3. Did anyone else hear something on the Sam Malone show this morning about the DOJ proposing a new rule to let them deny the existence of a document requested under FOIA? If this is allowed to go through, the FOIA is neutered and the inmates will run amok in the asylum.

  4. #8 TT: Thanks for the linkie; from that source:

    A proposed rule to the Freedom of Information Act would allow federal agencies to tell people requesting certain law-enforcement or national security documents that records don’t exist – even when they do.

    Under current FOIA practice, the government may withhold information and issue what’s known as a Glomar denial that says it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records.

    The new proposal – part of a lengthy rule revision by the Department of Justice – would direct government agencies to “respond to the request as if the excluded records did not exist.”

    Open-government groups object.

    “We don’t believe the statute allows the government to lie to FOIA requesters,” said Mike German, senior policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, which opposes the provision.

    This is from the most open and transparent administration?!?
    /cusses, spits, kicks another hole in wall

    Where the wiss is the LSM on this? Ifn a R admin proposed such lunacy there would be calls for immediate resignations or tar and feathers. This is a real big effin deal, folks. If this goes through, we have no freedoms left at all because the feds will just deny everything and the people will have no recourse. All the horrors of secret prisons, disappearances, warrantless seizures of property, etc will become reality right here in the formerly good ol USA.

  5. G’Morning all

    Happy B’day to me, happy b’day to me, etc.

    71 today. In honor of that I went to Wally World wearing mustard colored coveralls unzipped to my bellybutton with sandals and black socks and broke wind in the checkout line.

  6. #12 Geezer: Happy B-Day you old fart. I just heard that there is a new definition for the term “crop dusting” and that is sneakily breaking wind in a populated area. You “crop dusted” the check out line.

    Arianna Huffington Loses Ruling In Fight Over HuffPo Ownership

    Two politicos who sued Arianna Huffington and her partner for stealing their idea for the Huffington Post will get to go forward after a New York judge refused to throw out the lawsuit.

    The tale of intrigue amidst the media elite of the Democratic party began last year when Peter Daou and James Boyce, both advisers to the 2004 Kerry-Edwards campaign, filed a lawsuit against the Huffington Post founders last November. Daou says he penned a memo about a “new kind of Democratic news-reporting website and blogging ‘ring’ or collective” but that Huffington stole the idea and cut him out of the loop before she launched the Huffington Post in May of 2005.

    Huffington and co-founder Ken Lerer filed to dismiss the suit but state judge Charles Ramos ruled yesterday that the plaintiffs could continue with their claim under a New York law that allows people to sue if someone steals an idea that is both novel and concrete. In the ruling, the judge noted that Huffington appeared to have conceded that the idea was indeed a new one when she told Playboy in 2006, “There’s a tremendous advantage in being the first with something .. We were the first hybrid of news and group blog.”

    Ramos found that the plaintiffs had raised enough questions about the origin of the Huffington Post for the issue to be decided at a trial.

    Not only that, now they’re eating their own

    HUFFING AND PUFFING: The New York Times and The Huffington Post feud isn’t going away.

    Times lawyers fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Arianna Huffington on Monday, claiming that The Huffington Post’s new blog, Parentlode, is a rip-off of the Times blog Motherlode and she better change the name or else. Longtime Times writer and Motherlode founder Lisa Belkin decamped to The Huffington Post earlier this month and began writing for the new blog on Monday in a post titled, “Welcome to Parentlode.”

    “While we are flattered by your focus on our blog and your apparent fondness for its name, we obviously cannot permit you to adopt a name whose sole purpose is to create an association in the minds of readers with our ‘Motherlode’ blog,” wrote New York Times Co. lawyer Richard Samson in a letter addressed to Huffington.

    “This is a transparent attempt to capitalize on the fame and reputation of the original nytimes.com blog, and constitutes an obvious infringement of The Times’ rights under U.S. Trademark law”.

    Apples and cookies, O.K. Turkey? No way.

  9. #24 WB

    Oh, I can see this being used to cover up some less-than-desirable items. For example, that apple that’s got more than a few soft spots, or that discolored meat.

    No thanks, I’ll pass.

  11. Mail and old farts coffee time.

    Thanks for all the happy b’day’s.

    BTW, at 6′, 160 lbs I would look like like Barney Fife. There’s your ewwwww for the day

  12. Good morning Hamsters. Nice to get out the long sleeves and sweaters at last. And 2/10″ rain last night surely is enough to germinate the ryegrass seed spouse spread in the pastures last Sunday. The birds and squirrels had a field day earlier this week poking around the pastures. Breezy and 52 at 6, now stronger breezy and starting to clear, leaves and acorns flying and rolling through the yard.

    Spouse turns 71 tomorrow, and birthday dinner with good friends comes on Sunday at a new to us restaurant. A cake from a dear lady arrived this morning, and that will be enjoyed over several days. Getting older is not for wimps. :) And of course it beats the alternative.

  13. In the fifth-grade exercise, eight of the 12 wrote down “bully” as the kind of kid he reminded them of. When the discussion turned to other attributes, he was described as the kind of neighbor others would not want to mess with, or someone who would build a fence around his property, or someone who would be in everybody else’s business.

    Solution: Stop debating.

  14. The debates in their current format have not informed the voters as to what the candidates believe, stand for, or bring to the table. Nor have they really given an indication of what they would do if elected, how they would approach the problems of the day, or what differentiates each of them (positively) from the others.

    All they have been is a forum by which a bunch of left-leaning reporters can create a gladiatorial spectacle and wound the candidates as much as possible, while giving Obama non-stop mouth hugs.

    Instead of having eight or more people on a stage trying to launch zingers and 5-second sound bites, why can’t they assign each a random number, then have maybe three of them square off at a time? Also, jettison some of the candidates who don’t have a prayer (Huntsman, Pawlenty, Santorum, Johnson (never heard of him); I know some have bailed out, but they should have been punted long ago/before they were).

    n.b. – I am not quibbling with or endorsing Perry’s decision to skip some of the future debates, at least for the reason he is planning to. I think most of them would do well to skip at least half of the future debates. It’s one thing to have a few debates; it’s another to have 23 of them (really).

    The only reason to watch the debates has been the same reason people watch cockroach, hog, crab, and hamster races – they just want to see them crash.

  15. The only reason to watch the debates has been the same reason people watch cockroach, hog, crab, and hamster races – they just want to see them crash.

    Or;

    They could be doing it to see how a candidate reacts under pressure, whether he prepares well before hand, can engage even those he disagrees with politely and effectively, and is really committed to the things he tells them he is committed to.

  16. Another reason Republican voters would watch debates would be to see how well any candidate would debate against Obama, and whether or not his performance in THAT debate might result in Obama’s re-election.

  17. I agree with WB on the debates. Too many, and the forums/moderators are designed to provide “gotcha” moments for the libs to use later. I will say, Newt has done the best job so far at not falling for the set up, and refusing to tear into his opponents. My respect for his abilities has grown, watching him in action.

    I agree with Perry – debating is not everyone’s best skill. Every candidate should play to their strengths, in the best way of getting their message out. I can see a few debates, but 23 is a bit much, and if it’s not his best way to communicate, he should move on. (I have a feeling this will wiss Sarge off, as he obviously has it in for Perry and can’t imagine him running a campaign unlike what Sarge would have him run. Sorry.)

    I don’t agree with counting out candidates just yet. Some weeks ago I heard Dan Patrick going on and on about how Cain, et al, should drop out of the race because his numbers were so low. Today, Cain is leading the pack in a lot of polls. Newt’s numbers are coming up. I like Santorum, too, from what I’ve seen so far. I say, let ‘em slug it out. You never know what tomorrow will bring. The candidates will decide when they have had enough.

  18. Another reason Republican voters would watch debates would be to see how well any candidate would debate against Obama, and whether or not his performance in THAT debate might result in Obama’s re-election.

    If I remember correctly, TOWBWF only did a couple of debates with Hillary!. I don’t remember any with McCain.

    You’re conflating debate performance with performing in a crisis. That’s like stacking a comedian who’s used to dealing with hecklers against a lawyer who is used to arguing cases in court against a lecturer in a University. Similar in many aspects, but clearly not equivalent.

  19. #44 tedtam
    Maybe we shouldn’t punt the people with low numbers, but we do need to somehow limit the field to at least weed out the kooks. Where should the line be drawn?

    That said, if we can’t limit the number of candidates taking part in the debates, we should at least limit the number taking part in a given debate so we can move beyond the sound bites, zingers, and sniping. Do that much and it would be a dramatic improvement; I might actually watch.

    Anyone here think that Rick Perry could:

    A. Refuse to debate Obama using the same lame excuse he used to avoid debating Bill White.

    B. Do so dam good in any debate he has with Obama he’ll win the election handily.

    C. Debate Elmer Fudd effectively.

    D. None of the above.

    How about anyone polling lower than John Huntsman?

  22. I agree that having so many in a debate is distracting, but I’m uncomfortable with telling anyone they have to exit the field. Free speech and all.

    That’s why maybe the whole debate schedule should be cut back. Let ‘em work on other methods of getting their message out.

    The upcoming debate referenced in Hammy’s #50 would be very interesting. I hope I get to see it – I usually have to watch the debates over the ‘net after the fact. I’m usually too busy doing other things to sit and watch ‘em live. Plus, we don’t have cable here.

    Actually, as far as the Presidency is concemed, its more like watching a guy drive a go cart on an oval course in a parking lot to see if he knocks over any cones before letting him drive a race car in the Indy 500.

    Can’t see it here. I think a good one would be “Images by Tyrone Greene”

    Dark and lonely on a summer’s night.
    Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
    Watchdog barking. Do he bite?
    Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
    Slip in his window. Break his neck.
    Then his house I start to wreck.
    Got no reason. What the heck?
    Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
    C-I-L-L my land lord!

  26. Construction finally started on my big remodel project today. Woo hoo! Stove and ice box moved into dining room. No sink so I’ll be using El Gordo’s method of doing dishes for the next few weeks. Going with a standing seam metal roof which should be the last roof I ever have to put on the house. Pretty good discount on insurance too.

  27. In my single days, I had two pans: a skillet and a 3qt saucepan; one each: plate, knife, fork, spoon, bowl; one cookin’ knife; and one spatula.

    Cleanup took about a minute.

  28. Hmm, on the “debate” design/debacle, I agree that the format is the playpen for leftwing supposed reporters/newsreaders to wreak as much havoc for conservative candidates as they can while they appear to be astute arbiters of what the great unwashed voters in America should see. All designed so they will see the radiant glories of The One in comparison. What transparent fools these moderators are, and there is no reason why conservative candidates should continue to dance to their tunes. Especially since these shows only boost the viewership of otherwise failing networks, ‘cepting Fox that is. :) Understand the Cartoon Network has a larger audience than CNN.

  29. Ann Althouse posted on the irony of the OWS horde getting upset that actual homeless people were joining in the protest because they had food.

    The comments are hilarious.

    …but aren’t the homeless also part of the 99%?

    Puh-leeze. The homeless don’t know suffering like an unemployed history major from Oberlin. The homeless can live anywhere; they don’t have to move back home with their parents.

    Excuse me, could you please pass the Bolognese?….and the grated cheese.
    (but don’t touch me)
    Thank you.

    Just how greedy can you get? All that good food and not willing to share it with the less fortunate.

    Utterly disgusting.

    We need a government program to do something about this!!

    Wait a minute, which ones are the professional homeless? The ones who actually don’t have a place to live?

    The squatters are maintaining their amateur status.

    These young people are heros. Most of them are vets or students who are our future. I believe these children are our future and we need to teach them well and let them lead the way show them all the beauty they possess.

  30. Let’s hear it for Ann Althouse, a prominent voice of reason in the screwed up liberal enclave of Madison, WI.

  31. #12 – OTL – Happy Birthday. There are still a few things about getting old that don’t hurt, and being a solid senior citizen entitles anyone brave enough to still trust a fart to do so where ever and whenever he pleases. May you have many more.

  32. I’m a Lance Berkman fan, so I’ve been enjoying watching him in the World Series, and while I really don’t have a dog in the hunt as to who ultimately wins the series, I guess I lean a little toward the Cards for that reason. Anyway, I gave up last night and went to be having awarded the pennant to the Rangers. It wasn’t until this morning that I found out that I should not have left until the fat lady had at least come out and warmed up. Press accounts indicate it was the game of the year. I’ll be watching tonight. I believe that baseball is the only pro game that still allows the players rather than the referees to decide the final outcome, so that’s the only pro game I still follow.

  33. Politically incorrect wisdom from my inbox:

    What did Presidents Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower
    Have in common?

    This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass
    Around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.

    Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.

    Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII To create jobs for returning veterans.

    In 1954, Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans.

    The Program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and Korean veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them!

    Now if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could sure do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.

    Why you might ask can’t they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower were men of honor, not untrustworthy politicians looking for votes!

    Reminder: Don’t forget to pay your taxes –

    Almost 20 million illegal aliens are depending on you!

  34. #74 Ham: from wikipedia:

    The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) to the United States Constitution was adopted on July 9, 1868, as one of the Reconstruction Amendments.
    Its Citizenship Clause provides a broad definition of citizenship that overruled the Dred Scott v. Sandford ruling by the Supreme Court (1857) that held that blacks could not be citizens of the United States.[1]
    Its Due Process Clause prohibits state and local governments from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without certain steps being taken to ensure fairness. This clause has been used to make most of the Bill of Rights applicable to the states, as well as to recognize substantive and procedural rights.
    Its Equal Protection Clause requires each state to provide equal protection under the law to all people within its jurisdiction. This clause was the basis for Brown v. Board of Education (1954), the Supreme Court decision which precipitated the dismantling of racial segregation in the United States. In Reed v. Reed (1971), the Supreme Court for the first time ruled that laws arbitrarily requiring sex discrimination violated the Equal Protection Clause.
    The amendment also includes a number of clauses dealing with the Confederacy and its officials.

    Ifn you charge one group but not another for permits, fees, or whatever you have violated the equal protection clause. This/these is a slam dunk case; if the TP gets overruled we are one step closer towards totalitarianism. At what point do we take up arms?

  36. Great football weather.

    The drill team is dressed for Halloween. Lots of crayons, a couple of Gumbys, salt & pepper, bacon &eggs, plus the odd assortment of what kids can think up.

    They ought to ask for punitive damages in the amount of what they had to pay for every day the occupy rabble has camped in the streets. Just to emphasize the point.

  38. There’s a black family behind me who are hysterical.

    “Go baby!”

    “Ooh, don’t you be doin’ that to my baby!”

    “Honey, you better be tryin’ harder than that. ”

    “That’s ok baby. Shake it off ”

    “What he doin’ now?”

    So you are out in the cold at a football game, texting your little wagonburning heart out! OMG!

  40. #81 M42: I think Michael Berry is referring to Portland Oregon; one of the cesspools of liberal insanity (but I repeat myself) on the left coast.

  41. #82 Bones
    Seems like several times he has answered calls by saying “Jill in Portlandia” — isn’t Berry a local show? Not impossible for someone to call in from Oregon, but still…

  42. Heard Obumma is going to be a Serial Liar for Halloween.

    Guess he won’t need a phony birth certificate or a costume then.

  43. mharper, Michael Berry broadcasts his show to Baton Rouge, San Antonio and Portland as well as Houston. Airs hear in Margaritaville too.

  44. Heh, it may not who knows. Good question though, if a broadcast on the AM dial happens in a liberal city, does it make a noise?

  45. There’s a Portland Texas across the bay from Corpus, near Engleside which used to be a big military base there. ?

  46. #75,

    In my book the 1st comes before the 14th:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Doesn’t say anything in there about having to pay to peaceably assemble to petition the government for a redress of grievances. If the TP did pay, they did so voluntarily. It’s just that simple.

  47. #104 Dooooooooood:

    It says “peaceably assemble and petition for redress”. Not campout for weeks on end while turning both private and public property into foul pig barnyards. It also doesn’t give them the right to deny the use of that property – especially public property – to other citizens.
