blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

6.04.2009

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • That's a good looking Dallas police car.
  • The half-sized paper towel is a good invention.
  • The Fox 4 weather guy showing us the lake levels every day drives me a little nuts. Hey, they don't change that much from day to day.
  • Someone told me Liberally Lean was blocked at Bridgeport ISD. True? What about Decatur ISD?
  • President Obama is over in Egypt this morning giving a speech as he trys to make peace with the Muslim world. Can you imagine how uncomfortable W would have looked walking into that room?
  • "FORT WORTH — The death of a man who fell from a downtown parking garage Tuesday has been ruled a suicide by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office." This very short story provides no information as to how that ruling was made. And allow me to quote Kip Dynamite when I say, "Like anyone could possibly know that."
  • I never have thought sports radio boys Ben & Skin were very funny.
  • I would never eat at a "Tea Room."
  • I can't wait to see what the traffic is like at the George Strait concert on Saturday night at the new Cowboy stadium. I'm not going. I just want to hear about it.
  • I really want to see the stadium and not sure I want to wait for the OU game in early September (which seems easier to get into than a Cowboy game). But I think there's a soccer match before that which might be a good option - especially since I've never been to a soccer game in my life.
  • Prosecutors dismiss a capital murder case in Fort Worth weeks before trial because they decide their evidence wasn't good enough? Uh, you want to make that decision before you charge someone with a crime that carries with it a minimum of life in prison. Oh, yeah, what about the one year he spent in the Tarrant County jail after the indictment?
  • The recklessness of some prosecutors in seeking (and getting) an indictment for any case that comes across their desk is frightening.
  • My neighbor's kid, who was a toddler when I moved into the neighborhood, is now mowing the lawn for the first time. Now I know why you guys have kids.

There is a police car in the picture? They must be making a bust.

Your blog is blocked from Bridgeport ISD?

Really?

Doesn't this make you wish you had graduated from Chico Barry?

I love the little partitioned paper towels, too. On a serious note, we have a saying in personnel relations to "hire slowly, fire quickly". Perhaps the prosecuters could stand a bit of that advice when they're charging a person with a crime...might want to be a little slower on the draw next time. If I'd been forced to stay in jail for any amount of time unnecessarily, I'd sue the hell out of the county or state or whatever.

You are not blocked by the hospital. In May you had 3,700 views to your blog. 9,200 since the beginning of the year (insider info!) ;)

First commenter beat me to it:
The old comedy routine where the cops break down a door only to find a large-breasted woman who asks:
"Is this some kind of bust, or what?"
"Yes, very impressive."

They say blondes are dumb, but this one has to wear a shirt to remind her what her hair color is. (Just kidding, she's hot!) The cops are probably questioning her about those weapons of mass distraction

The half-size paper towel IS a good invention. Great observation

Liberally Lean SHOULD be blocked at all schools...libraries, hospitals, all businesses, homes, etc.
History will determine it as biggest. time. waste. ever.
Like anyone could possibly know THAT!

Come on BG, you really must try the Chestnut Tree on the square in Denton. They make a mean fresh broccoli salad and there is always a few big, burley guys among the little blue haired ladies. Besides,I think most of the waitresses are TWU students who do the summers at Hooters!

As far as the kid mowing the yard, I have an 8 year old that has just started his own lawn mowing business. Lord love him, he is so much like his dad.

Why aren't you uncomfortable with Obama walking into that room to make friends?

You are not blocked in Decatur. Only some of your pictures. Probably because your picture's location is on a blocked site.

Blogs and other social networking sites are blogged at most schools, unless they are 'educational'. Districts are required to provide a 'safe and secure' network environment, or they don't get technology funding from either the state or feds.
Nothing against Liberally Lean -- just that kids have enough to do without checking to see what nice headlights are featured today. Also, as Barry said recently, he monitors the F-bomb and some other language / racial comments. Not all blogs have such high standards.

The school is most likely using software that blocks the blogspot domain that hosts your blog, not your blog specifically. I ran into the same thing recently while traveling.

I can't believe some of you think this girl is "hot". She's disgusting and way out of proportion. What some people think looks good really amazes me!

We have an extra ticket to the Jonas Brothers next week at the new stadium, if you really want to go that bad. However I did hear that parking for the George Strait concert was going to be $38. Anybody else hear that?

Her surgeon should have his license jerked for such blatant disfigurement; this girl is grotesque.

"Kid mowing yard": That family ought to be ashamed. Everyone can afford an illegal to do this. Even the head of the Dallas area INS uses illegals to mow his yard. Let the kid get back to his video games. If they keep making him mow, he may lose weight.

Is anyone keeping tabs on all the Obammyisms? Yesterday he said that the US is one of the worlds largest Muslim countries. I want a tshirt with his picture on it saying "Trust me, I'm lying."

Just for the record, in my earlier post when I said she was hot, I meant she has a very nice face. Also a nice waist. I like the stuff in between to be, more, um...less

Our Muslim leader Obammy issued a statement to the national news outlets five hours after the murder of the baby killer Dr. Tiller expressing "shock and outrage." Two days after the murder of one of our brave soldiers and the wounding of another by a Muslim home grown terrorist at the recruiting station in Little Rock, he waited two days and only sent an email to the local AP in Little Rock saying that he was "deeply saddened." Can we have a do over?

Regarding the George Strait parking:

I just found this on Craig's List:

I have 3 parking passes for the Sold Out George Strait Concert this Saturday for $79.99 per parking pass. There will be approx. 62,000 people parking and there is only 24,000 parking spaces. Don't walk miles park in LOT 13 near the Stadium! I have two Floor Seats for $999 per ticket on Floor E Row 2. Call Yancey 361-438-4128

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts on the Rangers
(partly about the game with the Yank-me's on Tuesday)
Yanks leading 12-3, top of the 9th, 2 outs, 3-2 count. The catcher goes to the mound for a conference with the pitcher. HUH? What kind of strategy are you brewing for that situation?

Jim Knox is kinda weird and creeps me out a little
I like Josh Lewin and TAG, but I wish TAG would retire the line "He hit a rope!"

I like that they brought in Andruw Jones and Omar Vizquel. Those were cheap pick-ups that can help the younger players - plus, they both still got some game left in 'em. Makes for a strong bench

Vicente Padilla is a punk! He's the reason for a lot of the bad blood between the Rangers and other teams, because of his HBP stats. He plunked Teixeira - TWICE - the other night. It wouldn't have hurt my feelings if Tex charged the mound and beat his a$$! If the Rangers let him go, it might hurt the starting rotation short-term. But, the crazy quotient in the clubhouse will plummet. He's never been about team play. Good riddance
The Grey Wolf can use his one-liner: Padilla, Padilla, Padilla...that's all, folks!

Throws to the mound from the umpire: in the first game of the series, I think almost all the new balls sent to the pitcher came directly from the umpire instead of the catcher

We got a great deal stealing Nolan Ryan away from the Astros last year. He was great on the field and now he's great in the front office

Blogspot is blocked at Bridgeport ISD, as are all other blogging and networking sites. There's no way to control the content on those sites (and some of it is frightening and/or vulgar) nor is there a way to control BISD kids if they were on those sites. It's better to block the sites altogether, and I'd be very surprised to hear that Decatur isn't doing the same thing.

10:36, yesterday Obama credited Muslims with the orgin of algebra. The only easy course I took on my way to my degree in mathematics was History of Mathematics. It taught me algebra was known to the Greeks and Babylonians and it therefore predates the Muslims. He also credited them with other things that I learned otherwise in my studies in my minor subject of biology.

8:45, This is how IQ is related to who voted for Bush. The town of Highland Park in Dallas County, with the highest performing schools in Texas, voted 95% for Bush. The towns of Wilmer and Hutchins in Dallas County, with the lowest performing schools in Texas and low IQ citizens, voted 95% for the Democrats. Also the neighborhoods around South Oak Cliff High School (very low performing, very low IQ) votes consistantly 95% Democrate. In the area of college graduates, those who major in difficult and technical areas such as medicine and engineering tend to vote solid Republician. Liberal arts majors, the gimme degrees, tend to vote Democrate. By the way, engineers and doctors tend to have higher IQ's than lawyers. Who do lawyers vote for?

O my God 702. You are so right. The government must have a record of the IQ of all citizens. However, did not realize the comment was geographically related.
If you state it, it for sure must be fact.
