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

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • The Tea Party protesters and the Occupy [Location] protesters have some things in common: You both think you are getting screwed, you want to organize, and you want to exercise your American right to protest. Oh, and you both hate each other since you disagree with each other. 
  • Former Channel 8 hot sports reporter drops an F bomb - and way too easily at that.
  • The media will portray today as the 10 year anniversary of the War in Afghanistan.  That's OK, if you want to refer to it as the 10 year anniversary of the invasion. No, if you say it is a "war" that it is still ongoing. I refuse to say this "war" has gone on longer than Vietnam, World War II, or the Revolutionary War.
  • It is more of a war than the Cold War, however. (Call Back argument.)
  • I can't tell you how glad I am to have TCU back in the Big 12. Just the thought of Texas, OU, Tech and Baylor coming through Fort Worth every other year is great. But now I really hate the fact that the Aggies will be gone.
  • And think about that TCU: You've got to worry about OU, OSU, Tech, and the Empire but you get to avoid Nebraska and the Aggies.  It's still a tough neighborhood but the gang violence has been significantly reduced.
  • For those that say, "How can you defend those people?", there's far, far more that is being defended than just the person.  Things that you hold dear but just don't realize it. 
  • Unemployment figures released this morning: Still at 9.1%. Obama haters, rejoice.
  • I've had a few people send me Texas/OU Random Girl pics over the last month. I'll try to post them today. 
  • Saturday Night Live did an "Internet Comments Talk Show" bit. Not hilarious but kind of funny.
  • Had one of my little softball players come up to me before practice and respectfully say, "Coach, you seemed upset with me during our last game, and I want to make sure I know what I did wrong and what I can do to get better."  It was almost like it was memorized (and it may have been), but it was almost enough to melt me to see a kid (and parents) who care. 
  • Glanced at the end of the Yankees/Tigers game last night to see A-Rod strike out to end it which makes it two season ending strike-outs in a row. He made $32 million this year to hit a baseball. If my math is correct, that was $310,679.61 for every hit during the regular season. 
  • In August, The Ticket's Bob Sturm and his family went down to Honduras to finalize the adoption of a child by picking him up, having a court sign the order, and getting him a visa. How long does that take? The family, one person larger, gets to come home this weekend. 
  • And it is sad for the Rangers not to go back to Yankee Stadium which was the source of the greatest animated GIF ever of New York fans last year. You see something new every time.
  • ESPN Magazine's: The Body Issue (you're on your own) is a creative concept. Get athletes to get naked, pose in an athletic position, but don't show anything that you normally see when someone gets naked.  And I never knew I look just like Blake Griffin.

Not hilarious? Why? Because you invision some of your anon commentors to look and act in real life, exactly like that, that's why.

I'm not sure what you're trying to get at with your comment on the protesters. Are you criticizing them? What did you expect people to do about the wealth gap?

Anonymous said...

See a new great comment under the pic of the Bport popo car....residents should read it and think about who the put on boards, councils, etc....who you elect make the decisions...idiots in the seats leads to stupidity, reference Runaway Bay City Council

Dude..... The Big 12 just inherited a Garry Patterson defensive ass whipping to every team in the conference. That in itself, cause the violence rate to rise dramatically.

FYI, Girl in pic is a tranny.

9:14 -
your "new great comment" didn't make any more sense than the one here. You obviously have some sort of grudge against city council/school board members, but don't say exactly what your gripe is.
I can't take anyone seriously when they refer to the police as "popo". Makes it sound like you're a four year old

CollegeHumor.com produced a comedy sketch they called Internet Commenter Business Meeting many years ago. It is funny. I didn't watch the SNL one.

And the Cold War had nukes. Lots and lots of nukes on both sides. Strategic. Tactical. Your disrespect of Cold War veterans is duly noted too.

"Dude..... The Big 12 just inherited a Garry Patterson defensive ass whipping to every team in the conference. That in itself, cause the violence rate to rise dramatically."

You might want to tap the brakes a little there . . . dude. The Frogs are winless against the Southwest Conference and in the protestant league this year. Now that TCU is getting into a conference with real BCS teams a
.500 record will probably be a realistic seasonal goal. The days of 10 win seasons are long gone.

Just got settled in at a FOB in Afghanistan....havent checked liberally lean in weeks....finally get to and the first thing I see is a sub par "Hey Now" and a bullet saying Im not at war. Geeesh

And so continues the Wall St. Protesters = Tea Partiers storyline the Democrats would love for the public to believe.

Here's a list of what the Tea Parties would "call upon" (their words) government to do. Here's a list of "demands" (their word) the Wall St. protesters demand from...somebody. Readers can draw their own conclusions.

Here's another difference: "Occupy Wall St." violence and arrests vs. Tea Party violence and arrests.

Those who equate Wall St Protesters with Tea Partiers beyond "both hold protests" have an agenda.

"A Wise County grand jury has indicted Chet Wayne Frank, 37, of Boyd on two charges of possession of child pornography. Frank was arrested Jan. 20 of this year following a traffic stop in Decatur. The officer pulled Frank over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and discovered what appeared to be child pornography on Frank’s cellular phone."

How does a traffic stop give a cop the right to go through pictures on my cell phone???? What is happening to this world? I agree with the wrongness of child pornography but how many cell phones would someone have to look at to find one with child pornography. Do I not have any rights anymore -

2:17, welcome to Obama's America.

I may not approve of WallST protestors means, but I think their central point is spot on....the greed of a few has unemployed millions.

Similarly, I agree with the central point of the TEA Party about waste in government....but hold their tactics, racisim, bigotry, character assisnation even less.

Would be wonderful to have a centrist,pragamatic political party taking the best of both worlds.

BigEd and CT, we probably agree on more than we disagree on. Y'all just can't get past a couple of wedge issues and probably don't have the education to see what you're voting yourselves into.

2:17 - Most people would gladly hand over their cell phone to the police because there's nothing bad on it.
For those who are worried about the police seeing something bad on their phone, DELETE IT!!!
There's no excuse for child porn on any device EVER. Serves the guy right.
I am amazed at the people who defend these perversions.

there it is!!! the rage we all know...!

337 - Your mischaracterizations of the Tea Party are more inane than ever. It's hard to see how you can still try the "racist" (aka "bigotry") label when their current favorite candidate is black. But being wrong doesn't stop Liberals from trying the same tired old tactics.

Speaking of which, what exactly are the Tea Party "tactics" that you don't like? Speaking loudly? Assembling peacefully? Likewise the "character assassination" that you speak of. Did Tea Partiers call someone terrorist? (No, that's what the Democrat Vice President of the United States called Tea Partiers.) Since you clearly mischaracterized the Tea Party as shown above, readers are justified in saying you did the same with all your descriptions. Unless you have something to back up your claims.

3:37,

You wrote, "I may not approve of WallST protestors means, but I think their central point is spot on....the greed of a few has unemployed millions."

It is government involvement that has lost millions of jobs. Good ideas and therefore jobs are going to the place where they can best be exploited. That is the efficiency of capatalism.

The US is no longer competitive for business. Been slowly happening for over thirty years, but has expanded much faster since O has been in office.

Soon there will be only service, and government jobs. If severe changes are not made quickly, you will be happy to know that income will be equal amoung all....ZERO.

The US should be learning that the good ideas, and therefore the good jobs, do not have to happen in America. This is truly a global economy.

Right now, the developing countries are the place to be.

Vote for a more friendly business atmosphere from your government, or suffer the consequences.

Am I the only one that has started to just skip over Wordkyle's posts? It's like listening to a non-stop loop of FOX News talking points. If his cable ever went out he'd be speechless.

I work with a Tea party person--she is bigoted and heartless. She has shocked everyone with her statements. Her actions and selfishness are well known among our staff. We also have several people who would have been at the occupy wherever protests. They are generous, open minded, and compassionate. That's the difference.
Capitalism is great -- I am a supporter of it but when coorperations are being ran by people who never spent a day doing the labor they oversee you end up with a corrupt system that places no value on the loyalty of the worker. If America doesn't wake up and protect the working man we are on the path to becoming just like Mexico. Perry has almost made Texas as enticing to business as another 3rd world would be! Sure we have jobs but they don't pay living wages or benefits. They are given so many tax breaks that we can't afford to educate our kids or provide for the indigent health care services. Public education for all and a fair system that promoted the middle class is what has made our country great, not a tax structure that only benefits the top dogs. Texas is a looking a lot more like Mexico everyday!! No social services, a financially broke education system, and a divide between the haves and have nots that continues to grow.

I know a Wall St protester who rips the heads off of baby bunnies, trips little old ladies who are being helped across the street by Boy Scouts, and tells "your momma is so fat" jokes to crying orphans, always finishing with the punchline "or she would be, if she was still alive."

The apocryphal anecdote online game is fun for the whole family!

(By the way, explain how a "tax structure that only benefits the top dogs" results in half of Americans paying no federal income tax at all? Who's paying all the taxes?)

I am a female who was sexually abused by a pervert on repeated occasions when I was 7. These beasts have a recidivism rate at nearly 100%. As far as I am concerned, they can all burn in hell.
