Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 12/9/2014 -Odds and Ends

Councilmen compensation comparison 2014- Glen Rose City Council Compared to other cities PDF link

Recorded the City of Glen Rose regular session last night, very interesting meeting. Quite a bit of time was taken on discussion of city ordinances requiring each land owner to have a driveway versus adding an easement. I recorded the meeting in which that first discussion occurred,I think I got a "too big of a file" error and was going to chop that part into two sections, got busy and never did. In any event, either way, when I get video prepared from this meeting, will also add in the video from the relevant first meeting. Might take a day or two. 

WONDERFUL! Somervell County has put up all the audio to date on their website. I have been wanting to listen to the meeting in which they discussed drones, so plan to listen and post about that sometime this week. Anyway, THANK YOU to Candy Garrett and Brian for getting the audio uploaded, so great to be able to easily hear public meetings. 

My hair is beginning to go gray. I'm a blonde so it's not as if it won't be somewhat manageable, and I'm actually excited about it. I've seen some lovely heads of hair on some other ladies and kind of like the idea of tossing a grey or silver mane into the wind. 

Would you want your home router turned into a WI-FI hotspot? Lawsuit against Comcast.

CIA Torture report came out today. Daily Dish is liveblogging it.

11.53 am. So seven of the 39 prisoners given the full torture treatment gave no intelligence at all. How can you justify torturing them by the “saving lives” canard? If no intelligence was gleaned at all, their torture was utterly irrelevant to seeking intelligence. For seven torture victims, it was worthless on its face.

Rick Perry Laugh O Day- from Juanita Jean's-Go Read. 

Rick PAC was formed to help Rick Perry run for president of the United Damn States of America.

It has not helped.

This cycle, six whole people donated.  I guess you could make it better by saying, “How cow!  Rick got donations from more than the fingers on one hand!”

Three of those donated over $100.  Of those three, every single one of them is a lobbyist.

Okay, so that’s pretty bad.  Wanna see worse?

Of course you do.  You know you do. 

Rick Perry just couldn't bring himself to man up about the mentally ill man Texas was going to execute, courts did it for him. 

Remember that wacked out "The Response" that Rick Perry was involved in? Now Bobby Jindal wants to do it too. Maybe whoever sues over this will have more success than Texas did. Rick Perry spent taxpayer money on this, and the subsequent lawsuit was thrown out for lack of standing.
