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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The New England game in the snow, in October, was cool.
  • But some goof balls will claim that's a sign that Global Warming is a hoax. Hey, it's about the average global temperature raising one degree every 100 years -- not about one day in October.
  • The only entertaining lawyer blogger from Fort Worth says, "Hey, kids, don't be a lawyer." I'm hearing more and more of that.
  • Went back to Flip's on Saturday night. That place is borderline crazy late at night. (I can't describe the guy who had been to a wedding at Fossil Creek golf, experienced an open bar, and was now upset that a guy was "eyeballing" him. Then his buddy showed up who said he was a caddie at the Dallas Country Club.)
  • The spread of Texas/OU was Texas -3.5. Texas won by 3. There is justice in this world after all.
  • Change we can believe in: Federal law makes marijuana possession illegal. A couple of states have legalized marijuana possession for medical purposes. Under the Bush Administration, the Justice Department would arrest and prosecute those under federal law regardless of the medical exception (saying, in a legally correct manner, that federal law trumps state law). But no more: The Obama administration says such a policy is simply stupid.
  • I ran the 5K Sarah's Cure this weekend in Decatur (that's 3.1 miles) in 22:43 and finished 6th of 6th in my age bracket. Who were those five fast old men?
  • Three people died running the half marathon in Detroit this weekend? I'm running a half marathon in December.
  • I bet the stolen cattle trailer chase in Wise County yesterday was bizarre.
  • My favorite UT penalty from Saturday.
  • I'm still digesting the Willingham did-he-kill-his-family-or-not case, but his lawyer (who sounds more like the Sheriff) was on CNN saying his client is a cold blooded killer. I dont expect you to watch all 10 minutes of this youtube video, but please watch the first 48 seconds (it includes a reference to "checking cows" and forgetting the question.) What an embarrassment.
  • Thank goodness for Halloween. That means the Inkernet will receive a new batch of hot girls in hot outfits which makes finding the Random Thoughts girl easier.
  • I watched Southpark for the first time in quite a while the other night. Incredibly shocking.
  • Speaking of Sheriffs, the one in the Balloon Boy case is an idiot. He spends two days saying he's absolutely convinced that the kid's parents were innocent of a scam, and now he says charges will be filed based upon the "non verbal clues" from the Larry King interview. He's like a basket case of Emotional Evidence.
  • The last time Miley Cyrus came to DFW, it was all over the news. I didn't even know she performed at the AAC last night.
  • The most irritating person in the world: Cowboy Martellus Bennett. Never has anyone received so much publicity for so little productivity.
  • A couple of years ago, UT was given the option of sitting on the south side of the stadium at the UT/OU game but declined. I don't know why. The Longhorn crowd has to look back into the sun every year.

I believe that America is doomed. MJ legalization, gay marriage, dependancy on China, ignoring illegal emigration, etc. Every empire falls eventually. We are rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell.

Global warming: Yes, the temperature has risen one degree over the last one hundred years. But that is the only fact the global warming alarmist get right. The main questions are: Has man contributed to this and can man change it? I think the answer to both those questions is a resounding No. The temperature has risen on other planets, man is not there with industry and the internal combustion engine to cause that. Man only contributes 3% of the C02 put into the atmosphere every year. And C02 is a trace gas, .0384% of the atmosphere. Not likely we have caused or will change anything mother nature wants to do in regards to global temperature.

That Sheriff should be fined for dressing in a very unprofessional manner. Very sad when a man of his position comes on TV dressed in a USA flag shirt like some Hillbilly cowboy from Kentucky.

If the case for manmade global warming is so strong, why do proponents of that theory so often resort to deceptive arguments?
* Al Gore refuses to debate the issue or even answer tough questions.
* The infamous (and discredited) "hockey stick" graph was made with cooked data.
* The UN's IPCC edits scientific data so that it conforms to their political agenda, i.e., promoting the concept of manmade global warming.
As with the Democrat healthcare agenda, why the need for deception? (P.S. The world's been cooling since 1998.)

I agree with the fed's butting out of states' medical marijuana issues. They should do the same with a states' law enforcement enforcing immigration laws.

Because the last time Miley Cyrus was in town it was as Hannah Montana. This time she came as herself. "Hannah Montana" seems to be more popular.

The "don't be a lawyer" article was very funny--and accurate.

UT wants the north end zone because there are more tickets to sell. The tunnel is on the south side which cuts into the number of seats on that end.

MM..... nothing like a few facts to get in the way of a good argument.

Save the whales.

Your random thoughts sure do include a lot of sports talk these days which = (in your words) power down, imho.

There aren't more tickets to sell on the north side.....there is always a section of OU fans in the Texas side end zone to make up for the seats taken up by the tunnel.

Speaking of sheriff's Barry, how come I haven't seen anything posted about Walker's bun in the oven! I might have missed your blog about it! Seen them in the Mexican restraunt on I-35 in the middle of September. Then, she looked to be 5 or 6 months pregant.

Oh by the way Walker, they say that it is alright to hold your wife's purse, just don't put it over your shoulder!
Just so you know, you BLEW IT when you decided to put her brown purse on your shoulder!

Hasn't the world been heating up since the last ice age? If so, then lets blame the Cavemen...It's so easy even a Democrat could do it!

"is will get worse"

What be that meaning, stupid ellis?

I love "studip" people! And the "dependancy" on China! And illegal "emigration"! Barry, I tell ya - the nation *is* doomed!

Anonymous said...

Speaking of goof balls...it is those that blame every weather pattern shift be it cold or hot on global warming. The leading weather researchers do not see any global warming, rather we are in a global cooling cycle. Even more condemning evidence that Al Gore is an idiot.

"the earth is not flat. stupid people."

Has the scientific community been alerted to this breaking news? I would assume so, since freakin' Einstein there already knows

I believe what you meant to say is "carbon DIOXIDE release". And no, it's not an accident. Carbon release means nothing.

Remember - the shift key is your friend. It Makes Capital Letters
And you really shouldn't be calling people stupid. It's okay to call people stupid, I'm just saying YOU shouldn't do that

Once sat in a room drinking with a with a few lawyers (I think there might have been a judge there too) with all of them trying to talk me out of going to law school. I still don't understand y'all hate yourselves so much. Is the job really that bad?

Anybody who capitalizes stuff is a stoopid Mzchief maker no matter what.

No Stalker, just a observer who was waiting to be seated to eat with my family when Walker walked in with his family.

Just sayin, it was all over the place when they got married.

Here is a link to those liberal weenies at National Geographic.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/12/1206_041206_global_warming.html

Those elitists jerks actually believe that human industry/technology is a contributing factor to gradual warming of the planet. George Soros must be paying them a butt load of money to publish that liberal crap. What else would they possibly have to gain by pushing these blatant lies?

I prefer to view the completely unbiased opinions of scientists that are funded by companies that profit from fossil fuels. After all, if those mega corporations new that the use of their products damaged the planet, they would do something to stop it! Suck on that, liberals!!

I believe America is doomed: 40 years of a failed "Drug War" A trillion dollars flushed down the toilet. BILLIONS of dollars a year on MJ enforcement. Hundreds of thousands of lives ruined...

And alcohol is legal??????

Here's a little math you probably haven't thought about:

IF global warming is real, its consequences may include death for a significant percentage of the earth's population. Were it not for the industrialization of the last two centuries those people would not be here to begin with. Thus it will all come back into balance no matter what we do.


Let's just keep on rockin' along having all this fun and let 'em die. Hell, the world ain't runnin' out of people

Hey 259 - Do you believe that scientists who are proponents of the theory of manmade cliamte change work for free? Or can you accept that maybe, maybe some of them conform to certain ideas to increase their government funding? That's what they have to gain.

They also avoid intimidation by governments and scientific organizations with a political agenda. Would such tactics be necessary if the arguments could stand on their own merits?

Saw Martellus Bennett on Fox 4 sports last night...awkward, very awkward, as was the guy taking Mike Doocy's place.

Global warming huh? Yeah, right. Not sure I can survive the next 100 years if at the end of that century the average temp has increased by an entire degree.

I'm hearing more and more teachers give the same caveat about going into education. I'm not a teacher; I just have several friends that are. All of them talk about leaving the profession if they get a chance.
