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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Choctaw Casino in Oklahoma is huge. (At least it is from the road.) And they've built, or are building, a pretty swanky looking hotel.
  • For some reason, my iPod screwed up on my early morning run yesterday so I had to do without it. Listening to the birds, my breathing, my steps, and everything else around me was not a bad thing.
  • ESPN's College Gameday is coming to TCU, who somehow is now ranked #4, on Saturday. That may not happen again. Ever.
  • "Muslim" does not equal "bad person."
  • "Different from you" does not equal "bad person."
  • I removed caulk from my shower yesterday which was a tremendous beating. But I giggled when I found out that a product called "Krud Remover" that I had purchased from Home Depot actually worked.
  • Book-In Photo fun: Fairly hot 30 year old was arrested for Public Intoxication in Denton yesterday.
  • But hotter.
  • I actually walked in a Michael's store yesterday because I had to. Not fun.
  • On the afternoon of the Fort Hood shooting, everyone was referring to the shooter as the "alleged gunman." I understand the qualifier "alleged", but on that afternoon who exactly was it that was making the "allegations?"
  • It's amazing the military reported that he had died before that was confirmed.
  • I forgot to mention that there was a four jet flyover at Arkansas game this weekend. Me loves me the flyover.
  • I think I saw this weekend's NASCAR winner (whoever that was) firing the fake pistols he is given for winning the race. Even with blanks, that seems dangerous. Wasn't some kung fu movie star killed by a blank once?
  • Cowboy fans might want to tap the Super Bowl brakes. December is coming.
  • Five teens beat a 28 year old man to death in his front yard over the weekend in Wylie. Allegedly.
  • In Fayetteville around 10:00 p.m. I went into a convenience store and spoke briefly to a stressed and young female clerk who was worried about whether her replacement for the third shift would show up. "I have a kid to take care of," she told me. I wonder if she has health care?
  • WBAP's Mark Davis says he is wearing a Demarcus Ware jersey this morning. I was laboring under the delusion that he was a grown man.
  • A Messenger reporter used the word "methodically" in two separate stories this weekend.

What does, "FAIL TO MAINTAIN FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY" mean? Does she owe money to Walmart or Something?

Neither linked Twitter pic is hot Barry. Not even in the slightest. Your taste is going way down hill....

The kung fu movie star killed was Brandon Lee and he was Bruce Lee's son.

"Hot" is a relative term.

If you are stranded on an island with 10 ugly girls, the least ugly becomes "hot"

The young lady in question probably will never have health care if the Senate does not stop the ridiculous bill just passed by the House....if fact, most all of us will be doing without health care....hopefully so will the morons that voted for that stupid bill...after 2010.

Can't figure out what you have against TCU.

Could you not get in to school there or something? Is that why you had to go to North Texas? Was UNT (NTSU way back then) your "safety school"?

Go Mean Green!

Wait. What?

Ha ha...loving the mug shots..the second seems like she has some "even in jail I have to show my sexy face" attitude. The "random thoughts" girl is cute, though bikini or not, the room shes in looks like they should give tetnus shots at the door.

Must agree with with 8:35. What's Barry's problem with the Frogs?

The Star Telegram said that the last time the Frogs were ranked 4th was in the 50's. Coincidentally, that's also the last time BG got laid.

Anyone still undecided on TCU should come to the game this Saturday. This is the same Utah team that whipped Alabama in a BCS bowl game last year. An enormous purple can of whup-ass shall be opened upon the Utes!

Another actor killed by a blank load was Jon Erik Hexum in the 1980s. He supposedly was imitating Russian roulette during some horseplay on a film set. Pressed the gun with the blank round to his head and pulled the trigger, thinking it was harmless. His stupidity cost him his life.

It is mind-boggling to me that there are people out there who manage to believe that when the federal government passes a law mandating broad expansion of health care coverage, what that "really" means is that we will all LOSE out health care.

I'm old enough to remember when Medicare and Medicaid first came into existence, and I recall that there were a few nuts like that back then ... but the magnitude of this delusion today really scares me.

Could you please delete the picture of Nancy "Pisslosi" her plastic appearance makes me want to puke, from her stretched face, to her botox lips, to her dyed hair, to her fake boobs. However, to be a "fake" in Washington is acceptable so I guess she fits right in!!

GO FROGS!!
The clerk in the store who "has a kid to take care of", she has insurance, it's called MEDICAID. Your tax dollars go to pay for that. I still ask the question, why is Washington so intent on throwing this health care down our throat when they've placed in the Bill, they aren't required to participate? If it's all that great why aren't they signing up?
GO FROGS!!!!

It appears the Fort Hood shooter had ties with 9/11 terrorists and committed the worst terrorist attach since 9/11. Moderate Muslims must speak out about acts committed in the name of religion by those who believe they should murder Christians..

Barry, You should be bragging on your Bears, came back to beat Missouri Saturday.

Regardless of what happens on against Utah this weekend - the Frogs are a sharp playing team. It's hard to achieve that level of pride and success in a team that the rest of the college football world refuses to acknowledge!

Go Frogs!!!! Beat the Utes!

Go Frogs!! Everyone come out for a great game! National Champions here we come!!!!

wordkyle said...

Mind-boggled 909 - Perhaps those people you don't understand equate healthcare rationing and long waits for health services with "losing" health care. Those conditions exist in other countries with socialized medicine, so it's a reasonable conclusion.

BG, I assume that you are preaching tolerance in today's epistle. Shall we compile a list of those things Liberals refuse to tolerate? We can begin with free speech for anyone who disagrees with them. Liberals hate that. Maybe they should try living your "Different from you" does not equal "bad person" philosophy.

At some time or other 'hotter was caught with no liability insurance or had a DWI, therefore she had to purchase insurance with a SR-22(proof of financial responsibility) in order to keep her DL. Apparently she let her policy lapse, loosing her DL again.

There's some thought the military leaders at Hood announced the death of the major in the assumption if multiple people involved he would be the leader and maybe others would give up the fight before they started.

I loved that President George W. Bush went to visit the troops and their families over the weekend. Much of it was without fanfare, too! I suppose our King Obama was too busy making ANOTHER speech or ANOTHER cameo appearance somewhere much, much more important than our troops defending our country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Muslim" does not equal "bad person."

No, Barry you're basically correct but, it does equal primitive human being who is a member of a group that has been known for what- 1400 years for a proclivity toward violence?
When you try to turn a blind eye toward this fact what happens? Oh yes, why massacres of 13 unarmed, innocent people of course.
Not all Muslims are terrorists but, nearly all terrorists are Muslims.

2:34, I would lick her toes and more. Naturally good looking, no boob job, no botox, what ya see is what ya get! my kinda woman!

If you think the Choctaw Casino is big, you should check out the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, OK(just north of Gainesville). It's a 1.5 mile walk from one end to the other.

Thank you Barry for stating something that needs to be said more often - 'Muslim' does not equal bad person and 'different from you' does not equal bad person. The common thread in mass shootings is intolerance and feelings of not being accepted for who you are. Until bullying and badmouthing holds accountability, people from all races, faiths, and walks of life will feel like outsiders and unaccepted. Not only should murderers need to be held accountable - but those who bully, harass, and belittle others should also be held accountable. If you said Christian does not equal good person - that would also be a true statement and Christians would be more up in arms that most Muslims are with being labeled a bad person.

As far as those of you who rush to judgement on the girl at the convenience store assuming she is on welfare or medicaid - SHAME ON YOU!!! You have NO idea! That is such a discriminatory statement. I hear that type of comment made every day. If you are young and have a child - the government, aka - you, must be paying for them. If a person is black or hispanic, then the government must be paying their way. It makes some people feel better about themselves or their own situation to bash those who they know nothing about.

Oh right, Wordkyle. Like we're all going to take a lesson in "tolerance" from YOU.

340 - Tolerance is overrated. Not unimportant, but overrated. Having said that, other than silly Liberal geese, toward whom would you accuse me of being intolerant? You apparently have some idea of what you meant...don't you?

Muslim = Bad, Stinky-Ass, Person

Anonymous said...

2:42: you are so incorrect. Not even close to all terrorists are Muslims. Muslims are believers in the second largest religion in the world, Islam, to which 21% of the world's population ascribes. Just because someone calls God by a different name and worships Him in a different manner does not inherently make him bad nor a terrorist. They have the right to worship the supreme being any way they see fit, just as Christians and Hindus and the others have. Religious intolerance is the worst form of bigotry and narrow-mindedness in the world, I believe. There are great people in all faiths and I believe all are loved and accepted by the one God, no matter what name you call Him...Jesus, Allah, Krishna, etc.

Yes, your wonderful tolerant attitude will undoubtedly solve all the worlds problems.

But, before you go forth and implement this feel-good scheme, ask yourself a few questions:

1)How many Americans, or other Western Christian types routinely rally around a despotic tyrant leader and shout "Death to China", "Death to Russia"?

2)How many Israelis, though they hold the power to annihalate any or all of their neighbors, actually think much less say that that is their desire?

3)Why do a significant percentage of Middle East Muslims engage in these very behaviors routinely, in spite of the fact that we are by and large a VERY generous people?
How does this not represent an imminent threat in your mind?

You can wish for utopia all you want, but every time you open your eyes you will still find yourself in the real world.

And it has never been a real nice place. Probably not gonna become so just because you choose to bury your head in the sand
