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

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • Willie Nelson, multiple time marijuana offender, gets his latest charged reduced to a Class C misdemeanor, pays a $500 fine, and  receives 30 days deferred adjudication probation via plea bargain. Some Texas counties have prosecutors who would want a little jail time. Others would want a probation of two years with a conviction. Wise County had a prosecutor once who wouldn't even have filed the case. (Waaaay ahead of his time.) And all that disparity is legal and constitutional.
  • "And another" enters into plea bargain. Did I miss this one at the time of the arrest? Definitely one of the cuter ones.
  • Dirt for flower bed delivery summary: I wasn't there, but it sounds like truck backed up, dumped a ton of dirt onto the driveway that completely buried the tarp, most of the driveway, and some of the lawn. Then the driver drove off while Mrs. LL stood there wide-eyed.
  • Uh, that dirt has a very distinctive organic smell and a top soil texture. Oh, my. 
  • Dueling stories yesterday: Lady got five years in prison for sex at a Bedford motel with a runaway 16 year old boy while a former youth minister out of Plano received seven years deferred adjudication probation for sexual assault of a 15 year old girl. 
  • Alex P. Keaton turns 50 today.
  • The Texas Rangers announced that former pitcher Kenny Rogers will enter into its (wheels off) Hall of Fame. Fox 4 cameraman Larry Rodriguez, who was attacked by Rogers on the field before a game in 2005, should cover the ceremony. (He later sued and received an undisclosed settlement amount.)
  • Did you see the insane debate on Fox 4 last night between Dallas County Commissioner John Wylie Price and Commissioner Maurine Dickey who is upset by the new precinct lines? She looked drunk because she wouldn't stop her incessant swaying, and Heather Hays has got to learn to control an interview. That was chaos.
  • The girl allegedly kidnapped by her father who had been in the Wise County Jail was found safe yesterday. The guy is still on the loose although he has a probation violation warrant out of Wise County for criminal trespass, and he has a felony that's pending (but I don't know the charge.)
  • News reports always confuse "parole" (what you are on when released from prison) with "probation" (what you receive to avoid jail or prison.)
  • The Texas Rangers drafted a paralyzed college player in the 33rd round of the MLB draft. It was either for publicity or a nice gesture. Or both.
  • I don't know who Sylvia Elenburg from Bridgeport is but she's doing well in a golf tournament in San Angelo.

I wish the two bikini babes would sexually assault me.

Marijuana is a drug that has higher THC levels than it did in the 60's. Thus, it still should be treated like a crime.

Unless I missed something, I didn't consider the JWP debate insane. Heather Hayes did just fine. She let the idiots be dumb on TV.

Why aren't the liberal and Dem women of the country supporting Weiner? Hell, they dont give a care about Sharia Law in the world or US, so who gives a crap about Weiner's wife??

Re: DHS Homecoming moved.

All this so bus loads of kids can go to Austin to be backdrop for
10K-Rod's farewell to the Supt's Assoc?

Yes, DISD kids will be showcased, but has anyone heard about the budget crisis not mention one more day out of class. This will cost buck, big bucks. Maybe, he will take the 20+ teachers he fired, for one last harrah as well....

And one final question, why didn't the Messenger give the real reason for the move?

A prosecutor can be tough on crime - drug crime, specifically - but the one who throws the Redheaded Stranger into the clink can expect to get some rambling, incoherent death threats...right after I finish this box of Screaming Yellow Zonkers. Oh! and there's a Stooges marathon on.
Uh, what were we talking about?

The Astros drafted a player who had been paralyzed too. I thought the Houston paper misprinted the name of the team, but sure enough, they both did it.

Today's random thought girls look young. I need to know, do I now have child porn or images with wrongful intent, or whatever it is, on my computer after opening your blog? If I'm charged w/ a crime, will the court allow me to retain you to defend me, if you are charged, also?

John Wylie Price is a complete tool. We get what we deserve when we re-elect people of his ilk. He has goten away with multiple stunts over the years solely due to racial discrimination.

The problem I have is that both Weiners look alike.

Are they brother and sister?

9:26 - Since when are girls of any age wearing bikinis considered porn?

You sir are an idiot.

I'd like to play a round with Sylvia Elenburg. Makes my putter flutter!

BG, Nobody from Dallas/Fort Worth media should cover the Douche-tastic Kenny Rogers' induction to the Rangers HOF. Remember, he wouldn't start any media gang bangs until all D/FW journos cleared out when he was with the Tigers. So eff him and Kevin Brown. It would be a funny bit if LRod moderated the questions to that lefthanded Schei├čehead from the leering press.

The Boston Celtics drafted Indiana University's Landon Turner in
the seventh round of 1982 NBA draft after he was paralyzed in an auto accident.

I don't get you 9:26am.

Do you think clothed college girls constitute porn? And you think the host would put something like that up there?

Sylvia Elenburg is a golfer from Runaway Bay. May still be a member of the Runaway Bay LGA.

Illeagle weed is like the seat belt law. It is better for everyone else if they regulate it. If I chose not to wear a seat belt, it is my risk. If I chose to smoke weed (cigarettes, drink alcohol, etc...) it is my choice. Big government and nosey people should butt out.

John Holmes' Ghost said...

Ok... based on the student video, Carrie's voice is not so sexy... but on she is an anatomy teacher... now that's important... hmmmmmm hmmm.

With that description of your new topsoil, I'd say you're a regular sommolier of dirt.

how many people have ever od'd on pot..? answer: none.. so why is it illegal???

Huma Weiner must be so proud to be carrying Weiner Jr.

To those who don't get the weed thing let me explain. If you choose not to wear a seatbelt and something happens it only affects you but if you get high and drive then you affect others. I have no problem with personal choice it's when you kill others that I have a problem. And yes drivers get high and kill other people all the time. And don't tell me it's not a gateway drug. I am a healthcare professional and I see it all the time. Again though if you want to kill yourself have at it, problem is stupidity like that generally hurts or kills others.

John Holmes' Ghost - do you really enjoy making fun of a dead man? Have a little respect. The man does have family around here.

@ 1009 & 1144:
926 here.
It was a weak attempt at humor, and didn't blog well, obviously. Neither one of 'em look 17 to me. And my reference was not to true porn, but rather to some law that I think I read about in one of Barry's blog subjects that made it illegal to photograph people when the intent of capturing the image was for sexual gratification or some such.
Never mind.

John Wylie Price loves this blog. He might be a little different mentality, but he votes the same way on political races.

3:43 if it helps, that pic would be porn to fundermental baptists.

WTH 4:32 this isn't John Wylie Price's blog?

I don't beleive pot ever killed anyone. It may have been around but so was the toilet and it was not considered part of their deaths.

And pot is not the gateway drug, cigarettes are (nicotene). I have smoked a lot of pot but used no other drugs and I have never smoked a cigarette.

Re the story of the hot high school teacher:

Carrie Shafer seemed to get off pretty light. And no littering charge for the used condom thrown out the vehicle window. Pretty always wins.
