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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • True Lies is a silly movie that sucks me in every time.
  • Was getting my oil changed yesterday when I was accosted in the waiting room by a little girl who insisted on getting one foot from from my face and dang near yelling: "My dad and brother are getting their oil changed in the truck!!!" "What are you doing here!!!" "Are you playing a game on your phone!!!" "I like Angry Birds!!!" "Do you want to watch me play Angry Birds???!!!"  So there I was, watching her play Angry Birds.
  • What's Tech got against Baylor? On Saturday, they beat the #1 women's team as well as the men's team (basically eliminating them from the NCAA tourney)
  • Horrifying: Having a four year old fall off of a fifth store apartment balcony in Addison over the weekend. 
  • The neighbor's cat is huge and hangs around outside most of the time. But now it spends all its time peering in a window at the Family Cat. You want to know chaos? When somehow it got in the house through the the front door in the middle of the night on Saturday and was then confronted loudly by the Family Pup and Family Cat. Let me tell ya, that'll wake you up.
  • Lots of hubbub today about the Texas Legislature being poised to allow Concealed Handgun License holders to be able to carry the weapon on college campuses. I seriously doubt that anyone who is over 21, took the time to get licensed, and is enrolled in college is going to cause some random problem. 
  • When the pick-up-your-kid time after a slumber party keeps getting pushed back and back, you kind of become a free babysitter.
  • It seems like I've got 1,000 TV channels and most of the time I still can't find anything good that's on. 
  • I don't see how a NASCAR race that lasts over four hours, involves cars so similar that they can't get away from each other, and having a twenty year old nobody win its premiere race is supposed to be entertaining. 
  • But I should be a fan: I had to do some concealed car body work using a zip tie yesterday.  That just felt wrong.
  • The official DPS twitter feed posted this on Friday: "All driver license offices are CLOSED on Monday (to allow our employees to take advantage of all the department store Presidents Day sales)." So now government employees are taking a paid taxpayer day off and mocking you at the same time. 
  • I can't believe I'm saying this but Justin Bieber looked like a legitimate athlete in the NBA celebrity basketball game. 
  • Cowtown Half Marathon is this weekend, but they've moved it to Sunday -- I don't like that. 
  • Britney is accused of ripping off the rock ballad "If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me" by the Bellamy Brothers?  I don't think her new single sounds anything like it. 
  • Saw a very young couple waiting in line at the grocery store on Saturday night while the dad entertained their baby. Mom had all the signs of a meth addict and looked as unhappy as anyone you've ever scene. It was one of those "how did I get to this point?" looks.

Wish someone could create a list of "off the wall crazy stuff" (aka guns, sonograms, etc) our legislalture could roll into one bill, pass it, then get on to the serious stuff........like financing our government in a sound way and then go home before they do any more damage.

College aged kid with a CHL and enrolled in school will most likely not be the problem. They may likely be able to stop a rampage.

Sad about the young couple at Walmart. I always come out of that store counting my blessings. You see all kinds of people there. Most seem happy and rushed; but some are downright pitiful.

If I was a whacked out liberal weenie and wanted to do a lot of collateral damage, I would choose a gun free zone everytime.

I don't see how standing in front of a judge for 8 hours a day and spewing forth bull$hit is entertaining either, but each to his own!

I have a lot of trouble reconciling the Jamie Lee Curtis who does the unwifely dance in True Lies with the Jamie Lee Curtis who sells special-bacteria yogurt that assists the bowels.

Guns UP!!!!!!! Im glad the Lady Raiders beat the he-she and Mulkey!!!

Re: CHL on campuses. Your opinion is supported by the historical record. No CHL license holder has ever committed a felony gun crime. Those that choose
gun-prohibited places to wreak their havoc are the most cowardly of violent criminals.

So it's liberal weenies that do all the shooting nowadays? Someone has forgotten Arizona.

It's not liberal weenies that do the shooting. It's mentally unstable individuals. CHL holders do not fall in that category but are the first targets (sorry that's not PC) of liberal weenies when it comes to gun control. Glad to see that BG, liberal as he may be, realizes CHL holders are responsible people.

Why is it that most of the mentally unstable individuals are liberal weenies?

8:44 You're just the opposite of me. I come out of Walmart feeling proud that I have made decent choices in my life and worked to be where I am rather than some of those ignorant welfard idiots. I don't feel one bit of pity for them...they chose their beds, and they can rot in them.

Anonymous said...

If the chick at Walmart was a meth addict, that's her own fault and she is not a 'victim' to be pitied, but a loser who made a stupid choice.

Wreck 'em Tech!!

I was at the game on Saturday and it was epic! Britney Griner the he-she did not impress me at all. Yeah she is good don't get me wrong, but she let Smalls from Tech go in right for a lay-up and didn't even try to stop her. When the game ended she was escorted off the court by cops. Maybe if she didn't act like she did that wouldn't have to happen. She did not even show up to Lubbock this weekend...she was LAZY!!!! Mulkey looked like an idiot in the hot pink jacket with the white pants...ugh!

Mamalah said...

If you refuse to feel pity or compassion for people who have made bad choices, then you are hardening your heart toward most of the rest of the world. If your list is only people who are the victims of "accidents" or birth then you are going to have to go around researching these things and listening to their stories in order to mete out your compassion only on those who are deserving in your eyes. But be careful the outcome of that might be: those people become real and not just screw-ups and people you off handedly judge. You might become a real human being.

They probably will not be the cause of a random problem but could likely stop one.

11:21 Wal-Mart sure has alot of employees to be anti worker. LOL

Is this the Noone who should shop at Walmart?

Hardest Budget Ever.......

After they just gave me a $10,000 pay raise and I spent over a million dollars on fluff....

It sure is hard!

Anonymous said...

10:42 You may be my opposite, I don't know. I have made good and bad choices in my life; but, I was born into a good family and have always been lucky in life. what you don't seem to have learned about life is that some people are doomed at birth. Bad parents, looks, brains, etc.; and they do not have proper tools to conform to what most of us think is proper. Therefore, they have no choice but to get along the best they can. I am not being judgmental of them, just saying it like it is. Sometimes they don't get to have opportunities presented to them for choice making, good or bad. Life just happens to them. Let's try to be more compassionate.

Anonymous said...

3:40 Let's get real here...everyone can go to school and become something; perhaps not to college but through public school, and NO ONE has to choose to do drugs. That's a simple choice and can't be blamed on a bad environment. It demonstrates poor choices and that is not 'life happening'. That is them choosing to be a loser...no compassion for those choices here.

Anonymous said...

3:53 Some of the losers are mentally incapable of living like you and me. Stop being so one track minded.

Anonymous said...

Choosing to do drugs can certainly be blamed on bad environment. There are many reasons for addictive behavior.

well said Mamalah and 3:40. I'd be willing to bet some of the jokers who spout such hatred here are sitting in the front pew every Sunday morning.

1. What nobody is mentioning is, what's gonna happen to meth Mama's baby??

2. Barry, there are always one or two parents who see all the other parents as free babysitters. I was a stay-at-home mom for a few years. For some reason the other moms thought it meant "free babysitter." It's interesting that they never reciprocated. I finally put my foot down.

Anonymous said...

Don't let them make free babysitters out of you, if you can keep from feeling sorry for the poor kids who have parents that like to dump them. But, always remember no one can take advantage of you unless you let them.

"So it's liberal weenies that do all the shooting nowadays? Someone has forgotten Arizona."

Actually, Coach Rage is correct on this. The Arizona shooter was not a liberal weenie but just a lunatic. The shooter, as far as anyone knows, had no political affiliation.

If Coach Rage had said that the Arizona shooter was a right-wing, wingnut teabagger, we might have a discussion.

Anonymous said...

Y'all's logic is pathetic. Accuse liberals of both shooting rampages and trying to take away guns. Absolutely stupid.

Also, lots of good "Christians" around here, what with the "they made their choices..." Of course they did, but that does not mean you can't have compassion for those who are less fortunate.

Jesus (a Democrat), would be ashamed of all of you. Be sure to vote against healthcare though, because that's WWJD, right?

Rage

Coach Rage is now speaking for Jesus and claiming he, Jesus, was a Democrat. Great. I give him a compliment and he rewards me by saying something stupid.

Since I believe the federal government will bring to healthcare what it has brought to the war on poverty, the war on drugs, education, and just about anything else they have touched, now I cannot be a true follower of Jesus.

This is the rational of an individual who claims to have degrees in political science and law. Brilliant.

house of york = the most boring comments ever

I don't think anyone has voted against healthcare.

Jesus wants YOU to take care of the sick and poor. NOT pay the government to do so.

Much less put off paying for a third of the fed budget onto future generations. I promise, Jesus is against that.

Chambers’ words echo Paul’s warning to be aware of our own vulnerability when we see the sins of others. After reviewing the disobedience of the Israelites in the wilderness (1 Cor. 10:1-5), Paul urged his readers to learn from those sins so they wouldn’t repeat them (vv.6-11). He focused not on past failings but on present pride when he wrote, “Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” (v.12).

The head shaken in reproach is a common response to public sin. More helpful is the head that nods, “Yes, I am capable of that,” then bows in prayer for the one who has fallen and the one who thinks he stands.



Blessed Savior, make me humble,
Take away my sinful pride;
In myself I’m sure to stumble,
Help me stay close by Your side. —D. De Haan

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. —Proverbs 16:18
