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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • A Sheriff Joe tweet from late last week: "My condolences to the family of conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart who passed away 4 hours after he called me."  Let me translate: "Hey, everyone who is talking about that guy who died. He called me! He called me!" 
  • Look at the state of the construction at Allen High School's new stadium. Wow.
  • Another police car was struck over the weekend -- this time in Carrollton. It was demolished.
  • And we had a motorcycle death in the metroplex (but I only heard about it because the TV was going in a different room last night. No link yet.) Edit: Link.
  • I watched a documentary yesterday on the late chess champion Bobby Fischer who basically went nuts in his later years. I then immediately watched a 60 Minutes segment online about the new modern day Fischer: 21 year old Magnus Carlsen.  If you want to see one of the most amazing feats of mental strength ever, watch the first three minutes of that 60 Minutes segment.
  • Threw the softball yesterday afternoon. That's one of life's great joys. 
  • I finally found at least one report of arrests in the Traffic Ticket Roundup. 32 in Waco and 39 in San Antonio. The article doesn't say if those were the result of home visits or if they were just random traffic stops - a huge distinction. And those numbers are tiny.
  • I saw The Lorax this weekend at the Movie Tavern in Bedford and, you know, not bad. Some have criticized for its "green" message, but that's downright silly.
  • Hey, go northbound on Central in Bedford, go under 183 and make a left westbound to get on 183. Due to the construction, you'll get a chance in about four miles. 
  • Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on goofball Lamar Odom:  "It’s not about his numbers. It’s about his energy, the engagement in the game and the full commitment."  Really? You don't care his numbers? If you are only looking for energy and engagement then just pull some season ticket holder out of the stands.
  • Early notice: We'll do another Liberally Lean March Madness Tourney this year. (Don't worry about the fact that I still haven't gotten a trophy to last year's winner, County Attorney James Stainton.) You should be able to sign up here. I tried to send out a group email this morning to those which joined last year. 
  • I did touch up spot painting on the house walls this weekend. I finally found an activity where the Family Cat would follow me everywhere I go -- her head goes back and forth with the brush like she's watching a tennis match.
  • Then I spent a while making some type of concoction to get the ashes out of the grout in front of the fireplace since the dang cat decided to kick a bunch of ashes out of it. 
  • While you were sleeping:  "A gang of gunmen disguised in military-style uniforms and carrying forged arrest warrants killed 25 police Monday, then hoisted the battle flag of al-Qaeda in a carefully planned early morning shooting spree in western Iraq, officials said." Seems to be going well over there. 
  • Parker County incumbent judge's campaign literature: " I am working to make Parker County safe from those who threaten our way of life." Hey, what if your duty of enforcing a person's constitutional rights does not equate making Parker County safe? What will you do then?

Many chess players have shown remarkable memories, usually while maintaining most of their playing strength. For memory feats, George Koltanowski's multiple-board blindfold knight's tour always impressed me the most.

Speaking of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, there has been a near media black-out concerning the results of his investigation into the legitimacy of Obama's citizenship.

Since Barry is a big Sheriff Joe hater, I figured he'd fire off condescending remarks about his ability to enforce the law.

Here is a link to the web page containing the results of the investigation:

And Barry, if this doesn't at least raise an eyebrow, you're pure evil.

I was in the Navy with a guy who would play chess with his back to the board; but only one at a time. We all thought this was miraculous.
He seemed to be normal in other regards.
By the way, he was from Texas.

You see that Mark Bennett announced he's running for TXCCA?

9:32 Excellent observation.

Last week Mr. Green enjoyed watching what he thought was Rush squirming when his HYPOCRIT self is a hater too.

FYI never trust a lib or dem. Every one of them I've ever come across were SNAKES.

I know the forger. He lives across the street from the Easter bunny, two doors down from Santa Claus. He plays a lot of golf with the sandman and dates the tooth fairy.

Love a magnetic chess board & magnectic pieces mounted on the frig door and each person makes a play everytime they reach for the door handle! What fun all day long.

Something tells me no, so I 'll refrain from my usual lewd comments.

"Seems to be going well over there". In the words of Obammy, Things have calmed down since I apoligized for the Koran burning.

Shocking story indeed,probably not near as shocking as headlines would have been on March 16, 1988 if western journalists gave a damn about Iraq in those days!

It's always icing on the cake when the haters can't spell those big words when they try to use them. I guess they teach phonetic spelling in homeschool.

I read Bobby Fischer's chess column in Boy's Life magazine when I was a kid. It actually helped me understand the game better. But I think he was always crazy. I think it was just less observable during his heyday because he buried himself in chess to hide from his paranoia and delusions. But once he was on the mountaintop, there was nowhere left to hide.

No question, if he were still alive today, he'd be a "birther".

2:42, I would rather be homeschooled and not have a computer without spell check than to be indoctrinated in the public schools and have a computer with spell check.

What are you libs going to say when it turns out that the birthers were right?

There is a huge homeschool population nowadays. It's the new segregation and decline of public education. Who homeschools now? Rich crackers that can afford a single income home. It's not your far out right wingers anymore...it's moms that take their kids to Museum School for history and art classes, go to Fort Worth for cello and violin lessons, private science institutes, etc. There are still a few freakish isolationist types out there, but most homeschoolers can run circles around publicly schooled kids.

As soon as the birthers come up with something legitimate to support their position.

Don't you think every Republican in Congress would love to take credit for taking down the President by proving the birth certificate to be a fake? Yet, none have. Why is that? It's because it's not fake and they know it.
