Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Tony Romo slowly but surely loses a few fans with each passing year. And I think it is getting close to the tipping point.
  • Regarding the last play, not only did Felix Jones not know it was fourth down, but neither did Fox's Joe Buck or Troy Aikman. I wonder what their combined salary is to be football experts?
  • Married moment last night as I snuggled into my recliner at 6:30: Family member (on Mrs. LL's side of the family) was in a slight crisis that required us to spend the next three hours driving, waiting, and driving. Honestly, I expected stuff like that happens more often than it does. 
  • So Rick Perry leased a ranch to hunt on that was allegedly called "Niggerhead," and definitely had that name painted on a huge rock (which may or may not have been painted over in the 1980s.)  At this point, the allegation is far more damaging that the ultimate truth.
  • A pdf of the lease shows that former Wise County state rep Ric Williamson signed the lease along with Perry. Good to know we are connected somehow.
  • What might be more shocking is that Perry said over the weekend that he wouldn't rule out federal troops in Mexico to combat drug violence. The failed War on Drugs is actually going to become a real War on Drugs.
  • Did anyone see Fox 4 news at 9:00 p.m. on Friday? Steve Eager and Heather Hays were (surprise) having audio problems outside of The Ballpark in Arlington, but when they finally cut back to them, Heather invited a drunk fan to join them. The look on Eager's face was priceless. (Was Heather, uh, a little loopy?)
  • I can't say I've followed the "Occupy Wall Street" protest but it looks like quite the party from the pictures.
  • I'll admit posting was a little slow last week, but I'm in the middle of back to back trial weeks (the government is picking on me.) 
  • A stage actress in Houston died over the weekend, and was lauded in the Houston Chronicle. She grew up in Decatur. Can't say I ever heard of her. 
  • Last Friday, two people were arrested in Wise County in connection with the death of a Cooke County child. I'm not sure if they lived here or were just arrested here.
  • I dreamed last night I owed tens of thousands of dollars to a Nigerian gang who had an arsenal of torture tools, and (perhaps unrelated) I was picking up a snake with my hands. Not sure what is going on. 
  • This weekend: Decatur/Bridgeport.  Oklahoma/Texas.  Good times. 
  • All over the news, including leading the Update this morning, is the Ray Perryman study telling us what a great financial impact the Barnett Shale has had. Sure, it's big, but is it that big? My first question was who paid for the study. Answer: The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. Have you ever heard a Chamber of Commerce say anything negative about a local economy?

Niggerhead? BIG DEAL. If a person weren't so stupid they'd know it is in reference to a BLACK EYED SUSAN FLOWER.

It seems so strange to me that when we were kids things like this meant nothing. Today, we have a bunch of panty waists who can't handle anything and want to do nothing more than draw attention to everything someone does or says. Those people don't have enough common sense to know they are the problem by stirring the pot.

Weak people make me sick.

Doubt that the Rick Perry embarassment parade is near over!

Sorta makes you want to scrape that "native Texan" off your bumper.

The snake in your dream sounds like a phallic metaphor. I just wonder if you were recently scammed by a Nigerian?

Most of those people pissed at Wall Street probably have 401ks, stocks, etc.; or depend for their livelihood on someone that does. Huge crowd of hypocrits. What else is new in this country?

How much does George Soros pay to protest Wall Street?

The snake represents a fear in your current life situation. Just make sure you kill the snake in your dream.

Dreaming of a snake in your hand, along with some sort of torture?

You know that dreaming of snake is supposed to be phallic related. Just sayin'

The Barnett Shale may not seem like a big deal to you BG but it is what has put food on our table to feed our kids and money to pay our bills and our taxes to our government!!!! I would imagine there are alot of people in Wise County who appreciate the natural resource of gas so our families could survive in this country that Obamma is trying really hard to destroy!! And very well said 8:56

When 36 million blacks rise up in unison against their own frequent use of the word nigger, I'll believe they find the word offensive. Until then I agree with them that they are, in fact, niggers

Perry wants to send troops to fight the Mexican drug cartels and Obammy sends the Mexican drug cartels guns. Is the world upside down or what?

Blacks can use the word but others can not. Is there any word that Whites use that Blacks would be considered racists if they used it?

Anonymous said...

I bet there are more than a few folks in Wise County who love it when Wall Street speculators drive up the price of natural gas.

An Occupy Wall Street participant said she is a single parent with four kids and a college student and that it is Wall Street's fault she is broke.

The upcoming Occupy Dallas event will include a guy with 7 felony drug convictions and it is Wall Street's fault that he has no job, education, etc...

Occupy Dallas organizers are using veiled threats to let people know they mean business so look out y'all.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

11:14am,

I hope they do occupy Dallas. And stay there once they move in. They deserve each other.

The protest is right on. Corporate greed is killing our Country. Nothing wrong with having a 401K, just expect honest business without ENRON type shenanigans. I'm sure we all want to have money to send our kids to college to better our Country.

It's nigger navel for the black eyed susan, not nigger head.

12:16 Your post makes no sense.

Having a 401K is nothing but gambling. Gambling on corporations. If money is lost on your end you and your ilk cry, "corporations are greedy". LMAO

What a tool.

People - my God with N word crap, we should ALL be well past that crap.// Barry , If the answer is Tony Romo -the question must be " Do you know anybody else that gives less of a damn if you win or lose"?
Who again is that fat grey haired dude? Because a defense that cannot defend the whole game still sucks no matter what they did the first half!! OK , I just had to get that off my chest - peace

Corporate greed is good.

Corporations and the millions of individuals they employ shoulder most of our U.S. tax burden, they are the primary source of our industrial, technological and medical advancements, contribute millions and millions of dollars to charities and, for companies like Lockheed Martin, kill lots and lots of brown people. Anyone can form and own a corporation, buy and sell shares of many, many corporations (just open a E-Trade account), or be president of a corporation.

My guess these so-called protesters are nothing more than a bunch of bitter, myopic Joe Lunchbuckets.

You blame the defense for the second half?? The defense held Detroit to 20 points for the whole game. Romo threw for two Detroit touchdowns, the defense wasn't even on the field.
