Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • The body count continues: Fort Worth police killed a man this morning
  • David Dewhurst has fired off the Chinese Ads against Ted Cruz again. Incredible. 
  • The run off election on July 31st should be a call to arms for the Texas Tea Party. There is no question that they want Cruz over Dewhurst. There is no question that voter turnout will be miserable so it won't take many votes to win. If the Tea Party doesn't mobilize and take advantage of this opportunity, they never will.
  • Josh Hamilton threw his bat in the stands last night and barely missed doing it again during the same at bat. Someone is going to get hurt, and he needs to figure out a way to do what a little leaguer can do: Hang on to the bat. 
  • Is college football popular? The Cotton Bowl, which is scheduled to be played on January 4th at Jerry World between two teams yet to be determined, is now sold out. The earliest sell out in history.
  • Let's be clear: The Supreme Court did not "uphold" the show-me-your-papers provision of Arizona law. It expressly passed on making a decision until they see how the Arizona cops are going to use it. They could strike it down if the a specific case ever makes it back to them. 
  • The Supreme Court waiting until the last day to release the decision on Obamacare is consistent with its need for drama and the spotlight. If memory serves me correctly, the key ruling on the Second Amendment a few years back was released on the last day.  Hey, release the opinions when they are ready instead of waiting for the equivalent of a legal sweeps week. 
  • The official temperature at the Wildwood Naturists Resort in Decatur was 102.5 yesterday. I was close. (Close to being correct in my temperature prediction. Not close to being nude.)
  • Did KXAS ever make a decision on Jane McGarry?
  • My mormon book has a chapter on the kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart. The book plays it straight, but if there was ever a story that is subject to a conspiracy theory, that is it. 
  • I'm an expert on marriage. (Make that two years as of today. Two years!!! I'm smashing records left and right.) But if Mrs. LL had walked down the aisle singing Christina Aguilera like this chick, I'd of left her at the Little White Chapel and headed towards the penny slots.
  • I had to resort to jogging in the mornings -- that heat was unbearable yesterday evening.

Body count? You make it sound like the Mexican border.

What did you want the officer to do? He had no choice.

BG, be careful how you word things. We could have easily lost another Poice Officer this morning. For the record, the suspect opened fire on the responding officer. Last I checked it is still ok to use deadly force when Officers are being fired at.

Let's hope the bad guys realize that the body count will continue to rise when they try a kill the Police.

Have a nice day,
Concerned Officer

Congrats:

Have you figured out yet how instrumental Family Cat, and Family Dog are in your marriage?

Good job!

Heard a good opinion a few days ago--people need to pay more attention to preparing for the marriage, and NOT the wedding! WAY to many overblown weddings nowadays by people who really can't afford it! Tens of thousands spent on a "Hollywood" wedding, and then the marriage lasts about as long as a Hollywood wedding--divorces filed within the year!

They could strike it down if the a specific case? You need a proof reader, Skippy?

I sat next to the guy that got the second bat from Josh. Section 38 row 1...a long ways away from home plate and the bat came skidding over to us. It was still moving pretty fast by the time it got to us even after skidding over the field. The bat is pretty heavy and it had sticking stuff on the base of the bat. Why in the world does he not hold on to it better than he does is beyond me.

The wedding video was awkward, and nobod in the audience was even half interested in her singing.

When called to a location because a guy shot someone, and then to show up and have that guy open fire upon them, what are police officers supposed to do? I guess, raise their arms and take all the bullets, sacrificing their lives...so as not to endanger the murderer. After all, the killer needs to be free to go on down the street and kill some more. Let's put that in the job description for all officers..."just get killed"

It is hot this early in the morning. Where is my electricity to run my a/c? It sure is not coming from wind turbines. We are getting only 800 MW of the 10,000 MW installed capacity. That dog won't hunt. Here is the proof straight from the official source:

We are paying for this fraud through our taxes or through our electrical bills.

" If the Tea Party doesn't mobilize and take advantage of this opportunity, they never will." I'm not sure what you mean by this. Never will what? Support a winning Senate candidate? A winning candidate in Texas? Influence elections? I don't know if I agree or disagree with your point.

I agree with the gist of your comment (what I think I understand) as far as it went -- the conditions are certainly favorable for Tea Partiers to have an effect on the election. However, there's this little thing called "the other candidate." Dewhurst is politically powerful and has very deep pockets. ("Virtually bottomless," as one pollster said.) He was the leading vote getter in the primary, ten points ahead of Cruz. While I'm optimistic about Cruz's chances, if Dewhurst wins it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. He's the favorite. (Having said that, Cruz has Sarah Palin's endorsement, and her mojo has been strong this year.)

Observations....
1) that's Kelly clarkson.
2) if you had to create a hypothesis on why criminals have to be shot by officers, what would it be?
Over zealous cops OR over zealous thugs?
3) why does the nudists colony have an official thermometer? Does decatur possess an airport or courthouse?
4) I'd be concerned about the Tea-Party if I were you, also.
5) "sticky stuff"? Geez. It's pine tar. Go wash the dishes.
6) Arizona has been castrated by the government its trying to protect. Texas won't be far behind.

Ever wondered how the Official Temperature of Decatur got to be @ Wildwood Naturists Resort? Wonder what the guys that installed the rain gauge and thermometer thought? OR did they just 'hang out' like the other folks out there??? Would think the ambient temperature would be falsely elevated wihout clothing to keep the body heat contained. LOL!!!

Jane won't be coming back because most people probably agree with this youtube guy. Although she could do the whole Betty Ford thing,like starting a Jane McGarry Clinic, and re-create herself.

sorry to be a grammar nazi, but this drives me crazy: "I'd of left her..."

The correct phrase is "I'd HAVE left..." as in "I would have left her". The other way reads "I would OF left".

Thanks. I feel better now.

a church wedding is no place for staging performance art (what are they...Unitarians?), regardless of how great you feel your decision was on picking a mate. She should have saved that for the reception.
The wedding day already belongs to the bride, and she went way beyond attention-grabbing. The groom will have lots of high-maintenance issues to confront

Hambone needs to take a file to that bat handle and file 2-3 grooves in it, kinda like a construction workers sledge hammer handle. That along with the pine tar ought to help. Rangers will probably put a net up soon so no one gets hurt. If I caught a bat I'd of kept it too.

Heat at 102.5 I would rather be close to naked.

AND, I advised you last year Barry...stop jogging...your are destroying your body...just fast walk.

In Texas you say..I wooda left her...now that is so much easier to say aint it. I love good grammer but it is sometimes so time consumming and it is wasted on most. Save the good grammer on a job that requires it...most people around here think you stuck up if you don't speak their ingo.
