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

3.13.2012

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • An SUV slammed into a parked Dallas police car last night on Central Expressway in North Dallas. This is becoming bizarre.  
  • After a day to think about it, the soldier going nuts in Afghanistan by killing women and children coupled with the scandal of burning of the Koran makes that country a powder keg for anyone wearing an American uniform. And it already was. 
  • Oddest tweet yesterday: "I've got Kony in my Final Four."
  • Sean Hannity is in re-election panic mode. For some reason he believes he's going to make  a difference with the continuous mention of the President's law school tape and Bill Maher's contribution to the Obama Super Pac. Both are huge swings and misses, but he refuses to realize it. 
  • After I finished jogging and was walking up the street to cool down on Sunday, I turned around to catch Mrs. LL and the Oldest Girl In The House hiding behind cars and mailboxes at they were attempting to stalke and scare me. Upon being caught, they turned around, locked arms, and skipped down the road like in The Wizard of Oz. *head shake*
  • From the NYT: “What would happen if we organized thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of people charged with crimes to refuse to play the game, to refuse to plea out? What if they all insisted on their Sixth Amendment right to trial? Couldn’t we bring the whole system to a halt just like that?” My answer: Absolutley. Why doesn't it happen? All defendants would support it so long as they weren't the first in line. 
  • Do stations like WBAP pay the company which syndicates Rush Limbaugh for the right to broadcast the show, or does that company pay WBAP and makes money by embedding their own ads that WBAP must run? The answer is here and what that syndication company announced yesterday is shocking. 
  • Bumper sticker that would make many Wise County heads explode.
  • The Star-Telegram is not running the Doonesbury series this week, but I was more amazed that the headline with a link to that story appeared five times on its homepage this morning. Who designs those things?
  • I don't think I've ever met anyone who has been to SXSW in Austin.
  • Sports: (1) I missed Cowboy's free agent tight end Martellus Bennett saying he feels like he's a 60 catch a year guy. This coming from a guy who has not caught a touchdown pass in the last three years, (2) the Cowboys get "fined" by losing $10 million in salary cap room for disregarding a salary cap warning during the non salary cap year when to honor the warning would get the owners in trouble for collusion? Ok, got it, and (3) Randy Moss has come out of retirement and signed with the 49ers -- whatever happened to Michael Crabtree? 
  • Time is running out to sign up for the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em Tourney sponsored by the following (and, merchants, there is still time to add to the pot): 
    • Wise Garden Center has pledged a $100 and $50 gift certificate for in-house purchases.
    • Bloomoon Pet Resort in Chico has pledged a $50 Visa Gift Card
    • Wise Liquors in Bridgeport has pledged a liter of Crown Royal for the last place finisher. (I'm guessing they are serious.) 
    • A signed Lebron James jersey with a certificate of authenticity donated by attorney Paul Belew
    • A $100 Visa Gift Card has been pledged and delivered by Chris Miller's Farmer's Insurance Agency in Bridgeport.

The people who watch Hannity and care what he says weren't going to vote for Obama anyway. So he has zero net effect. Although if he gets filtered out to the media at large he may fire up Obama's supporters.

Jesus wouldn't get 3% ofthe vote in a Republican primary. His Sermon on the Mount is anathema to the party.

Bumper sticker - I'll say one thing for the Obama phenomenon -- It's certainly had Liberals referencing the Messiah much more often.

Gosh, 838, Your observations appear very insightful and knowledgeable about the Sermon on the Mount. Please explain how you arrived at your conclusions, I'm sure readers will be fascinated.

You know how else we could bring the justice system to a halt? If people wouldn't break the law. If they wouldn't steal, kill, burn...and if there are "crimes" they are committing because of laws they don't like; if instead of breaking them they would raise candidates and vote, and get the laws changed. Unfortunately, the VICTIMS of crimes don't have the option of opting out of the "game".

I'll refer back to my original suggestion for the cop car-rear-ending drunks: Place mockups of cop cars on the side of the road, complete with flashing lights (it must be like moths to a flame!). I'll take full credit for the idea, somebody else can make it a reality

Sweetest tweet yesterday:
I've got chocolate in my peanut butter

If Jesus actually was running for office, you can bet he would get a higher percentage of votes than Kim Jong-Il ever did (and without cheating). Nobody would be able to find any dirt on Him!
I would also like to hear some explanation of the Sermon comment

Walk off grand slams: 5 dollar a gallon gas, fast and furious, Afghanistan, mandating insurance companies to give free contraception, the deficit, 90 plus rounds of golf, Michelle and her entourage on million dollar vacations, Michelle, Solyndra and all the other green companies that went bankrupt after being given millions of dollars, Ft.

You're right, my head did explode. Jesus didn't advocate welfare. He had a trade and worked it. He performed miracles, but Obama hasn't.
How dare some idiot compare the two? However, Obama does have the holier than thou complex.

Just because GM goes bankrupt does not mean it would shut down. Liberal idiots don't know how the economic system works so they therfore can't comprehend how the bankruptcy would work. It's like argueing with a fence post.

Hey Barry, I went to SWSX while at UT Law and I have met you. Several of the Evil Empire folks have attended over the years. Not worth a road trip but a five minute drive is a different story. I think Don Henley and Bruce Hornsby performed.

Good stuff today...

The "give a man a fish", etc. proverb is not Biblically, it is an old Chinese proverb. The stories of being a fisher of men and dividing the fishes and loaves to feed the masses are Biblically based.

What color skin did Jesus have? I little research will show you that Jesus spent his entire lifetime in and around that part of the world we now call Israel. That is in the middle-east, folks, between Lebanon and Egypt. In the Bible, Rev. 2:18 describes His feet as being the color of brass, like in a hot furnace. A little study of anthropology would indicate that Jesus was probably not white, blonde or blue-eyed. It is highly likely he had dark hair, brown eyes and something darker than white skin, but lighter than our black brothers, and probably lighter than our Hispanic friends.

anathema = a new word for me. I actually had to look that one up. I can't wait to use in a sentence during a normal conversation and watch the question mark of confusion form over the listener's head.

And the wind turbine at DHS...what a great idea, and location. There's enough wind around there to power all of Decatur. The rest of Wise County will have to fend for itself, as usual.

Jesus could never run for public office today. He would have to explain the gap in His life history from roughly age 12 to roughly age 30. TMZ would be all over that.

I'm thinking at least part of His life between 12 and 30 was spent at the University of Tel Aviv and He partied like a rock God. He was probably a member of the Alpha Omega fraternity. They got all the hot chicks and Jesus kept the wine bar fully stocked.

I hear He pulled a 4.0 in theology and never studied.

Jesus was a middle eastern jew of two thaousnad years ago. Black hair black eyes and brown skin like all the other middle eastern peoples.

The correct proberb is "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will buy a bass boat and spend all his weekends on the lake drinking beer."

Everyone please note the dividing of the fish and bread is biblical, not governmental. Jesus had a strong disdain for anything governmental but called upon the people to take care of their neighbor. Let's cut out the middleman (government) and take care of our own.

216 - Nicely done on Jesus's likely ethnic heritage. And given the brouhaha involving a certain talk radio host over the last several days, citing Rev 2 is oddly fitting. Rev 2:20-22: "...I have this against you. You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways."

But was your passage actually referring to the color of Jesus's feet? Just an observation.

Amen?

btw, there is a rush party at the AO house tonight sponsored by the Church of Christ. The first 144,000 get in FREE!!!

Rev. 1:15 also refers to Jesus's feet as being like fine brass.

And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

At least according to brother KJ.

Ok, smartass, how about you find a reference in the Bible regarding a color, any color, associated with the appearance of Jesus.

The only references I'm aware of are the two in Revelations previously posted.

11:24, Funny, I was at Lobster Fest just the other day and plenty of ordinary folks were going to town on that shiate! Some of them probably even paid for it with money from working a job.

1002 - Slow down there, cowpoke. You're taking offense where none was (originally) intended. My first comment on your comment (@216) about Jesus's likely ethnic heritage was complimentary. I think I said the words "nicely done." I did question whether the phrase "feet like fine brass" describes color. After that the comments got a little churlish and I responded in kind. Sorry if I was too rough.

As for references to Jesus's "color," I have no idea.

Everybody knows that the middle east was full of white people in the first century. That's what the crusades were about, to liberate them from those evil brown oppressors and bring freedom and McDonalds and Starbucks to the downtrodden masses.
