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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Three separate motorcycle deaths in Austin over the weekend.  And three separate drownings in DFW lakes.
  • Over 20 years ago I hated lawn work so much that I got a nasty letter from my homeowner's association. Now I walk around the lawn looking for spare weeds. 
  • Mrs. LL might have met an officer who thought she might have disregarded the speed limit in the great state of Texas. 
  • Baylor came within three outs of going to the college world series yesterday. Now they are 27 outs away. After Arkansas tied the game and with the bases loaded, Baylor's relief pitcher came in and threw one pitch and hit the batter. Sheesh. 
  • Lindsey Lohan managed to total her Porsche on Friday. I'm surprised she wasn't badly hurt.
  • The "private sector is doing fine" gaffe by the President was one heck of a gaffe. The Republicans were smart to jump on that. 
  • It's not often you see a bridge pillar broken in two but when it is hit by an 18 wheeler which never hit its brakes, it can happen.  What a mess on a shut down I-30 in west Dallas.
  • I looked up at the TV on Saturday night and saw the movie Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus. And they said Hollywood was out of ideas. 
  • The Electric Daisy Carnival looks like a scene
  • Mrs. LL apparently still can't hit a softball but she had learned to run to first on a dropped third strike. She felt like a Softball Genius. Attagirl.
  • The new Dallas ISD superintendent defends the $180,000 salary of his 31 year old communications director: “If Jennifer Sprague were an ugly, slightly older male with 20 years of experience who had won all these national awards would any of you make a story of it if he received the same salary?” Well that 20 years of experience might be a little different.
  • Lady Gaga got hit in the head with a pole while on stage and it looks like that would have hurt.
  • Kenney Chesney has been trying to position himself as the next Jimmy Buffet for 10 years and when he's now playing in front of 50,000 at Cowboys Stadium, he might be getting there. 
  • The Family Cat now makes a break for it every time the back door is opened. She then hits the brakes about halfway into the lawn and starts grazing. It's like a "Hey! I can eat this green carpet!" moment.

I like those little blue things you put in your random thoughts...they're pretty.

Pretty sure O would love to have the comment back as would R about the police and teachers......but hardly a defining moment for either.

I have read consistently that the private sector is sitting on 3 trillion, that's with a t, rather than putting it to work.....in the hopes of keeping economy down till election.

Three trillion is doing just "ok." I guess.

Does Mrs. LL need a good lawyer?

So did said officer give Mrs. LL a piece of paper stating that he thought that she disregarded the speed limit of the Great State of Texas?

Is she checking to see if she put on deodorant?

Lindsay's Porsche was rented. I wonder what the insurance is on a Lindsay Lohan rented Porsche?

Your reference to Obama's gaffe is a testament to your "fair and balanced" approach to the blog. Well, it's a good first step. You've missed a lot of 'em, too.

If there is a drowning, it most likely a hispanic. Observation made years ago and still true.

The private sector is very smart to hold on to that money until Obama leaves office.

"Mrs. LL might have met an officer who thought she might have disregarded the speed limit..." Cut the Officer some slack, they have to get their quota somehow. Just like the Cops in Arlington. Get it?

8:54, Doesn't that tell you that the private sector is more secure in knowing that Republicans will ease restrictions on private business allowing them to hire more people and invest in growing their business? If I were a small business owner, I damn sure would be scared to spend money in this train wreck you call Obammy.

So sad that you're willing to throw your President under the bus to appease your conservative constituency counselor. Private sector hiring is up under Obama. The problem is way less local and state government jobs probably because tax receipts are down thanks to the Tea Party. http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/06/01/493849/obama-bush-jobs-record/

854 - Two things: first, provide a reputable source for your "$3 trillion" claim. Second, even IF businesses were sitting on that much money, it likely has more to do with uncertainty over the federal government's actions regarding healthcare, regulations and taxes. (And here's one of my sources.)

thinkprogress.org? It's laughable that someone would trust a left leaning ANYTHING.

1005 - Obama himself clearly doesn't agree with your assessment, given that he did a do-over five hours later. It's part of the Obama "trial balloon" administration -- propose something patently ridiculous and see what the backlash is (the Labor Dept's attempt to make the press use government computers to report is another example.) If public response is not too negative, they ratchet it up a notch and push their crazy agenda even further.

A woman and homeowner was arrested for prostitution in 76137 and no comment from you.

Telling. Very telling. As a matter of fact I doubt this comment will ever see the light of day.

The only thing patently ridiculous is Obama expecting people to mind the details of the job picture which does support what he said. The common man is a moron which Fox News exploits brilliantly

10:05- How could you paste such a racist, bigoted, heterophobe website like that on here. Have you no shame ???

1147 - Convince Obama. He backed away from the very claim you're making.

But let's take a look at the claims Obama supporters are making. 1) Private sector job growth is amazing under Obama, and it's because of his policies. 2) Evil businesses are hoarding trillions of dollars in cash, a record amount of saved money that could be used to create jobs and hire people.

The dissonance hits right here. If Obama's policies are so good, then why wouldn't the greedy businesses (who want to make money more than anything else) take advantage of those policies, expand their businesses and hire even more people and make even more money?

Here are your possible options:
a) Obama's policies are working, but in a sub-optimal way; otherwise businesses would create more jobs.
b) Obama's policies have nothing to do with positive job creation, and businesses need other conditions to create more jobs.
c) Obama's policies hurt job creation, and any jobs created are despite his efforts. Without them, businesses would create more jobs.

Which of these options is something for Obama to brag about? All of them indicate that more jobs should have been created than have been. (Well, his supporters would brag. Obama's backed away from the claim.)

I read somewhere last week that when it comes to organ donations, doctors prefer the "young male motorcycle riders."

Electric Daisy Carnival is not a place I would take the in-laws. Unless they were on an acid trip.
