Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I get asked daily in the house if I have "Temple Run" on my phone. I'm guessing it's the next "Angry Birds" (which I've also never played.) 
  • Conservative Freak Out #1: "Bill Maher donated $1 million to Obama's Super Pac. Since he's said bad words about conservative women, why doesn't Obama send that money back?" Answer: Because it's a Super Pac which means the President has no control of it. (And I thought Republican's loved the big money Super Pacs?)
  • Conservative Freak Out #2: "A million dollar lottery winner still gets food stamps!!" Answer: It's legal (at least that's what Fox News told me last night). And when we learned Mitt Romney only paid about 14% in income taxes, the Republican mantra was "How can you fault him for simply following the tax laws to his advantage?"
  • Dennis Miller was funny one time, right?
  • A potential LSU football player is a "Hey, Now."
  • I promise you, the Tarrant County prosecutor who signed the dismissal better have had a great reason to do so or he/she is gone. And I wonder if the new PR girl in the office will do a press release about that story?
  • We're going big time!: Chris Miller's Farmer's Insurance Agency in  Bridgeport has pledged to donate a $100 Visa Gift Card for the winner of the Third Annual Liberally Lean NCAA Tourney.  Now we're talking. Hey, any of you other merchants who want a month of advertising on the most trusted blog in the Southwest Proper, throw some money in the pot as well. I'll mention you when ever I mention the Tourney. Maybe we can have multiple prizes. 
  • Jessica Simpson neekid and pregnant on the cover of a magazine.
  • Sean Hannity was hyping an "Obama College Tape" all day yesterday. It turned out to be a big bag of nothing.  If anything, it showed the President as a law student taking a leadership position. 
  • Motorcycle death! Well, not quite. But a trooper did decide to shoot a motorcyclist yesterday in Cooke County. I hope that was necessary. 
  • Mrs. LL was at some event at Byron Nelson High School last week ("It's huge!!!"). So I did a double take when I read a 15 year old on that school's softball field was Careflighted out of there yesterday after being struck in the head by a bat. (Facebook link.)
  • DPS issued a warning for those on Spring Break not to travel to Mexico. I almost understand if DPS issued a warning about the border, but what business do they have in issuing a warning about an entire country. They ain't the State Department. 
  • Kony. (You'll learn the name. All I know is that a 30 minute video exploded on the Internet yesterday which may or may not be accurate.)
  • I watched a documentary once about the Golden Gate Bridge and how it is "popular" for suicides. Last year, the bridge set a record with 37 such deaths.
  • The only way I'd sign Peyton Manning is if he'd play for the league minimum salary. I don't trust that neck at all. (But isn't this amazing: The release of Manning by the Colts is not on the front page of the Indianapolis paper today.)
  • Fox 4's "Deal or Dud" guy did a segment on Secondipity last night. That was a100% paid commercial disguised as as news. No question about it. (His giving a "promo code" at the end of segment was the clincher.)  Keep your eyes open for these tricks. It's happening more and more. 
  • Daryl "Moose" Johnston will (for some crazy reason) endorse Craig James for the U.S. Senate. Upon hearing the news, James said, "When people see the two of us walking around, they’re going to see two people who’ve been successful in life." (I predict C.J. Wilson will be next to endorse.)

The most shocking thing about that Obama tape, so far as I could tell, was that the guy had the EXACT same speaking style and the same lame sense of humor when he was 30.

If he loses this time, it's not going to be because the Right played the "he's a scary non-American, un-American anti-American."

When will the dems decide that Obama's associations, past and present, are not in the best interest of the American way of life? Oh yeah, the dems don't care about the former American way of life. They want us to become a third world country. They do not want us to be the leaders of a free world. They don't even want us to be a free nation anymore. "Too many people doing what they want instead of what we tell them to do".

The only difference I can tell about Obammy back then as opposed to now, other than he was still associating with racist radicals, was that he hadn't perfected whistling after a word that ended in S.

Hey Barry,

Dennis Miller is still funny. If you libs are allowed to worship a jackass like Bill Maher and let him give a million bucks to his favorite candidate then we're allowed to laugh at Dennis Miller.

Kony. I'm still entirely unsure what an "awareness campaign" hopes to accomplish in practical terms. Convince the US to send in the Army? Are they going to collect a bunch of money and hire mercenaries? Right now it appears to be:

1: Raise awareness
2: Collect money and pay ourselves.
3: ????
4: Uganda saved!

DPS = Department of PUBLIC SAFETY!
I wouldn't take their word if they were warning us aboot Canada, but shooing us away from that crap south of us seems like prudent advice.
Besides, don't you reckon they got some input from the State Dept first?

the motorcycle shooting:
I was really hoping it would be a story with an Easy Rider-type ending. Nope - crash and a foot chase. Ho hum

I imagine that the only reason CJ Wilson would endorse Craig James for anything is because of his kicka$$ initials. Otherwise, I doubt he even registers on CJ's radar. James is a poseur - pseudo-awesome! He was good at one sport, but didn't excel professionally. Now he's trying politics. What else is on that resume...five dead hookers? And none of them confirmed?! Step up your game, bro!

I saw the film clip on Obama at Harvard. The Democrat party is made up of hippie era radicals. The news media is made up of hippie era radicals. That is what we have. It will take another 20 years before they are all dead and maybe America will wake up then. Watch "How Sweet the Sound", a film about the life of Joan Baez, if you want to see where they all came from. And look who sang a Obama's inauguration and listen very carefully to the words of the song that he sang.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5KnYADCSms

He is in the Baez film. Communal ownership of everything in America is the message of that song. "that side was made for your and me". By the way that man was a member of the American Communist Party.

Consilium ac prudentia said...

Just because something is legal doesn't make it morally correct. If you cash in like that good for you. Now stop suckling at the government teet. This is a grand example of the lefts agenda to make everyone dependent on the government. "Congratulations on your big win. Your Uncle Sam loves you ('course we're gonna steal our cut wink wink). Now don't let those self-righteous moral pricks on the right tell you you should stop taking those food stamps. It's perfectly legal you know. We've got your back on this one. And come election time don't forget who helped you out on this little bit of legal aid, wink wink." Do you really not see anything wrong with that Barry? It's disgusting. It's not a legality issue. It's a moral/ethical issue.

Lots of misdirection today, counselor.
1) You mischaracterized the Conservative comments on Maher, just to come up with a false answer. The real observation is this: Where is the equivalent media outrage on Maher's remarks, where is Obama's (and the media's) condemnation of those remarks, and why is there no pressure (from the media) for the Obama Super PAC to return that money?

2) It's interesting that you don't see a difference between Mitt Romney legally keeping his own money, and the lottery winner legally taking money from the rest of us. (Plus, make sure to remind everyone that you're talking about Romney's effective tax rate, so they can compare apples when you mention apples.)

3) While not as mesmerizing as video of Obama in bed with a dead hooker, the video indicates a bit more than "Barack Obama, all-American boy." He urges folks to "open their hearts" to Derrick Bell, a man whose views could most kindly be described as controversial (okay, also racist and hate-mongering.) Moreover, the Obama campaign felt it damaging enough to "hide during the 2008 campaign." Where was the media's vetting of Obama before the election?

BG, "Careflight" is not a verb. "Airlift" and "medevac" are verbs.

I guess I'm liberal-leaning by today's definition but I find Dennis Miller and PJ O'Rourke humorous. What this world needs is another Molly Ivins to work the left side of the aisle because Bill Maher is an idiot.

Sorry to inform you, No. 32, but when people see you in public with Daryl Johnston, they're going to ask, "Who's that asshole with 'Moose?'"

The Devil said...

It is funny that you bring up Dennis Miller as being not funny, I bet you would positively adore him if he fell on your side of the political aisle! It must make libs very uncomfortable to see someone that intelligent, articulate, yet laid back and cool, spewing his rants alluding to obscure people and things, all while spanking the liberal establishment.

It is also ironic, because the last time America had the chance to properly vet its next president we collectively said, "Aw, f*ck it. Who wants pie?"

Conservative Freak Out #1 - I ended up blocking a few classmates over this issue. They were going ballistic over the whole thing. It's not political. Both guys (Rush & Maher) are egotistical sexists. They only know how to insult a woman in sexual terms. Sounds like two junior high school boys to me.

DPS has plenty of intel about the narco syndicates in Mexico. The FBI gets it through the Fusion Centers, but rarely pass much back.

"But a trooper did decide to shoot a motorcyclist yesterday in Cooke County. I hope that was necessary."

The trooper shot the dismounted motorcyclist, who had just led him on a pursuit before crashing, fleeing afoot, and then turning to fight the trooper. So we're already all up in Felony Land before the guy ever actually lands a single punch on the cop. If the trooper (who is alone) loses the fight, then the bad guy is also now an armed bad guy, because let's remember that in every fight with a Texas cop, there's at least one gun present.

If the guy's starting to win that fight, it's time to shoot him. That's the price of doing business as a felon. If you fight, and start to win, you can expect to get shot.

I wish more people would get the word on this.

It never ceases to amaze me when people are so content with their own ideals that monikers of segregation such as democrat or republican blanket the populous despite the fact that the majority of the individuals ideals differ vastly among the specific groups and, at a surprisingly large rate, mirror those of the opposing group but since the existence of the segregated groups will NEVER be agreed upon or enacted thus working for the good of no one.

Tell that to the poor woman that was murdered by this black gangsta thug. You should move over to the neighborhood she lived in. I believe it might help cure your case of white guilt and political correctness. (It will cure you or kill you, one of the two.) You do not have to live there, so you do not give a damn. Quit running down the people that have to put up with the filthy animals.

Everybody knows. Law-abiding folks have known this since cops started carrying Colts. But we're not the ones you have to worry about.
Reminds me of that Tom Cruise movie (the title escapes me) where the gubmint knows beforehand when a criminal will strike. Maybe there's a defective gene we can identify so cops will be able to spot the criminal dumbassery
