Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • I'll be up at the courthouse when the Obamacare decision comes down shortly after 9:00, but if you want to find out the results from the Supreme Court first there is no better place than here
  • Conservative talk show hosts are going into hyperbole mode this morning claiming that the Supreme Court not striking down the law will mean our "liberties are gone" as we know them. Note: They've been gone a long time.
  • Here's analyst Jeffrey Toobin's ticket to the Supreme Court today. Really.
  • An addendum to my story yesterday about the court decision allowing cops to detain you simply for pulling over on the shoulder of the road: I don't think many of you understood that the motorist would not be free to leave, if the cop so desires, once the cop hits his emergency lights and pulls in behind you. 
  • Mrs. LL is in some softball conditioning clinic twice a week. She was describing it last night and said, "It's hard. I'm not sure you could do it."  Think that caused a stop down moment in the house?
  • Well, after the country has gone crazy fearing that "bath salts" will make you turn into a face-eating-zombie, it turns out the Florida face-eating-zombie didn't have bath salts in his system. How in the world did that rumor get started in the first place?
  • Those are Hooters waitresses up there.
  • I heard Josh Hamilton threw his bat into the stands again last night. I don't think he cares if he hurts someone -- at least that is his attitude. 
  • I'm not sure how I feel about this: Tarrant County Deputy placed on leave after Facebook rants about the Sheriff. Government punishing for speech?
  • Ann Curry emotionally announced her departure from The Today Show this morning. I almost feel bad that some higher up placed her in a position for which she was destined to fail. I mean she drives me nuts but she drove me nuts before they named her co-anchor.
  • I love Jon Stewart for stuff like this: Taking news footage of New Jersey governor Chris Christie voicing why he is for legalized gambling but against legalized marijuana. Genius
  • The Family Pup and The Family Cat will sometimes face off with both of them on their hind legs. It's like an animal Gladiator. (And the Cat throwing fast right hooks into the stunned Yorkie's face makes me laugh.)
  • I was one of the first to mention the jogger who died after being the victim in a hit and run off of 287 and Blue Mound Road a week or so ago. Now the suspected driver was found dead of apparent suicide in Duncanville. There has to be more to this than just the hit and run. Could it be that he was leaving some place he wasn't supposed to be? Do you kill yourself because you fled from an accident?

Maybe you kill yourself because of the guilt fromm killing someone else. The police had already found his truck at a ft worth bodyshop. The guys at the shop said when he dropped it off he was sweating, nervous and wanted to pay cash for the repair.

I didnt know Newark had a Hooters?

He's not throwing the bat into the stands Barry...he's guessing on pitches and guessing wrong...he gets fooled, and loses the bat...to suggest he's intentionally doing it shows that maybe Mrs. LL is right about you not being able to handle the softball camp...

Given the 6-3 vote, most of Wise Co is probably now believing the world is about to collapse.

9:17am, no one in the baseball world thinks Hamilton's loose hands are normal. There is ZERO reason to throw a bat in the stands over 30 times when the season isn't even half way over.

Regarding the face-eating zombie, what you failed to mention is what he did have in his system -- marijuana. What are its benefits, again?

Yea, that Josh Hamilton problem is a doozy. Had the same issue with Pedro Cerrano. Wound up taping his hands to the bat. Made it a little awkward running the bases, but you do what you have to do. Sorry, got take another call now on a tire deal.

Those squatters are still in that house in Collin County, ever after an eviction order? Man, I know that has to be a beat down for the owner. Beware Barry. Such are the trials of a landlord.

If any of you knuckleheads hadn't figured this out yet, Hamilton is a first class D-bag. Just read up on this character, especially concerning his wife, contract talks and his church.

In regards to the conditioning, it is just a matter of putting your mind to it. You can force yourself to do anything, no matter how unpleasant. Just ask my physician husband. Oh sorry, you can't ask him. He's still dead. Thirty years just flies by.

What is it with morning show anchors? BG, I feel the same way about Robin Roberts as you do about Ann Curry. Yet, we're talking about the previous #1 show (Ann) and the current #1 show (Robin). WTH?

Hamilton aint nothing but a dope head like the rest...

Please explain why Ann Curry drives you nuts. I have always liked her.

I still wonder if the hit & run in Haslet was really an accident. Just a hunch.

People need to keep their facebook pages clean..especially if you are working or seeking work. There have been many won lawsuits over what is said about someone else on fb.
Do you ranting here...hahaha

His church? What do you mean?

WORDKYLE, MAN HE JUST HAD THE MUNCHIES

Wordy, the fact that that goof had used marijuana by no logical stretch indicates all who use it might eat other people's face off. I know you have a better grasp of logic. Why not use it?

I'd pull a "double fredo" with those girls.

wordkyle said...

tsk, tsk, space cowboys, don't get your Zig Zags in a wad. My point was that, given BG's tolerance/support/promotion of marijuana use, and the zealotry pro-pot advocates show in this forum, it's a glaring omission when during a discussion of "what drugs caused this craziness" the one drug that's found -- marijuana -- isn't even mentioned.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Wordy, it's not mentioned because no one can find any evidence that marijuana is "normally" involved in this type of activity. Maybe alcohol or speed or meth but not MJ.
