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

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • There was a heck of a lot more hoopla about the Rangers winning a playoff series last year because people were actually able to watch the games.
  • I made fun of Ranger T-shirts last year that proclaimed them "West Division Champions." I think we finally matured this year -- I didn't see a single one.
  • Darlie Routier is back on the market. (Either you know who she is or you don't.)  When her execution date rolls around, I'll bet that case will explode back onto the scene. 
  • Gov. Chris Christie is a Sarah Palin wannabe. After months of teasing the GOP about whether he'll run for president, he holds a press conference yesterday to announce that he would not. He stayed in front of the camera answering questions for almost an hour. 
  • The Messenger has an ad in their own paper today implying that they will rename its Sunday paper the Saturday paper (its been delivered for two decades on Saturday) and its Thursday paper the Wednesday paper (same deal.)  It's about time. 
  • You military/aircraft guys, is there any significance to this video from an aircraft carrier? It's making the rounds with not much of a description.
  • Every time I see Joel Osteen and his wife get interviewed (they were on Piers Morgan last night), I stop down.  That wife of his has to High Maintenance to the nth degree.
  • University of North Texas "Hey, Now"?
  • Great softball moment from my team: Other team's batter walks, my catcher drops the ball and believes it's a dropped third strike -- even though there weren't even two strikes, she throws the ball down to first striking the runner in the back of the head, the runner takes off to second, and my first baseman then launches the ball into left field as everyone else stood around and watched.  If I don't get Coach Of The Year, something is wrong. 
  • The NBA strike is almost in full force and I feel fine. 
  • The Messenger has a story about the 1972 Bridgeport/Decatur footballgame. They should do more of those flashbacks.
  • I know I'm Old School when I get to work and realize I don't have any collar stays in, but I have an extra set in my desk for emergencies.

Didn't Olsteen's wife prove how "high maintenance" she was a few years ago on an airplane?

Our country NEEDS men like Gov. Christie leading us. At least he has some balls, and not afraid to act like a real leader. King Obamy could only wish............

Aircraft carrier significance--the plane is "waved off" at the last second because two crewmembers are walking across the flight deck (landing area) at that moment!

Great softball story!

The fundamentalist in the GOP would have had a hard time with Christi's views on gun control, gay rights, and immigration, actually more left of GOP center than Romney!

But he would have been a formidable candidate for independents.....I actually liked his getting GOP, unions, and Dems to revise pensions plans in NJ.
He didn't strong-arm as Walker did in Wisc.

Repubs will have to decide if they want to be idealogically "pure" in losing or to win.

I couldn't care any less about the NBA strike, not much of a JungleBall fan.

Christie would go away if old lady Republicans would quit feeding his fat ego.

Michelle Obama needs to send that man a good diet.

collar stays...really? This is wise county. Most of us are worried about stretching the paycheck to make ends meet. We don't care if our lawyer has collar stays.

The Reverend Mrs. Osteen definitely enjoys the life of a wealthy famous person in the public eye. Remember her snit in the recent past with airline personnel? The lady is high maintenance.

Why can't we ever have a meaningful conversation about Banjo's?

It is about two sailors crossing the flight deck who were almost hit by that plane. This was very, very close to killing at least these two.
Walking across a active deck is NOT done.
This is not the the planes crew fault, this is stupidity by the two walkers.

Under the radar:
a missing SMU grad is found dead in Italy. Can Amanda Knox account for all her activities before scampering back to the US?

Darlie Routier may be newly single, but I bet she hasn't been lonely. Hey-O!

Ranger notes:
~ Matt Harrison did a very nice job tossing the ball yesterday
~ Adrian Beltre did a very nice job crushing the ball yesterday. And he didn't seem to mind (as much) that all his teammates were touching him on the noggin after those three! HRs.
~ Winning the West last year was a big deal because it finally got us back into the playoffs. Taking the division should be a given for the near future. We want the World (Series) and we want it...NOW!?

I'm not military but I think that there is not supposed to be people where the airplane is trying to park.

"I know I'm Old School when I get to work and realize I don't have any collar stays in, but I have an extra set in my desk for emergencies."

I am not so sure that it would matter when all eyes in the courtroom will undoubtedly be on your client, who is wearing a Coors Light wifebeater, tattered jeans and a Boyd Yellowjacket mesh ballcap.

I didn't notice the deck apes the first time I viewed the video. Holy moly. I did 3 months in Coast Gaurd auxilary JROTC.

I don't want ot invade into a family's privacy, but, what happened to Linda Blanks of Chico. I have known her and her family for many years. Such a shocker.

Any discreet info would be appreciated.

“West Division Champs” hats and t-shirts are available on the Rangers’ website. No kidding. I keep wondering who in the world would purchase such an item!

I found it curious that Joel Osteen wouldn't commit to an answer on the death penalty question last night.

I'm definitely not nearly as high tone as you BG. My "emergency kit" consists of several safety pins in my desk to take care of the occasional wardrobe malfunction of my aging raiments.

11:25, Osteen doesnt commit to anything. That's the benefit of the Prosperity Gospel that he preaches, you don't have to actually say anything and people throw their money at you.

Hey you Dems and Libs better get to New York to help your ilk on Wall Street!

They are gonna need someone to make them a garden so they can eat. They cannot buy food from anyone.

You better send some sheep too cuz they need to make their own fabrics to make some sleeping bags too.

Damn, these fools are having a hard time. I sure hope they don't have clothes on, phones, bottles of water, etc. OMG the list can go on forever!

9:07, I prefer the claw hammer banjo, but when I travel through airports I always get delayed because when they X Ray it, it has the same outline as a claymoor mine.

12:55, George Soros will provide for all their needs. He is training them to be 100% dependent upon the government. It's all part of the master plan. Obammy is just the man child that is being used to implement it.

Great softball story... been there, done that! It gets better as you go, but there are still some "did that just happen?" moments.

Prison definitely has not been kind to Darlie.... she used to be kinda hot!
