Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • Unemployment news announced this morning: It remains at 8.2%.  I wonder how many right wingers wanted more people unemployed for political reasons?
  • Britney in a bikini with her kids in a living room. (Facebook.) Attagirl.
  • Lots of Mark Cuban hating going on in the talk radio world. I can't wait for his first interview where he'll say something like, "Have you read section 11 of the collective bargaining agreement? You haven't?" And then he'll fire off a bunch of terms that he knows the interviewer doesn't understand to take control of the conversation. Does it every time. 
  • Mrs. LL took the kids to watch fireworks along the Trinity River Wednesday night. I learned yesterday they grabbed inner tubes and actually got in the river. She's always had a certain glow about her, but now I wonder if it will be radioactively induced.
  • The Running of the Bulls begins today. A few years back ESPN would carry those daily runs live (they last about two minutes each time.) Love that stuff.
  • Shout out to Tara in the County Attorney's office who gave birth yesterday to Olivia Paige. (She strong-armed me into promising I would mention this day a few months back.)
  • Absolutely worth a watch: DART bus plows into stopped cars on the Tollway last Friday. Whoa. 
  • I wonder if I can talk Mrs. LL into seeing Savages?
  • Some how, some way, Mrs. LL has completed the entire series of Lost in record time. About ten episodes from the end I asked her is she was just "riding it out." Her (defeatedly): "Yes. I've come this far."  Me: "Lots of people on the island?" Her: [Failed smile.]
  • I love Fiona on Fox 4 but recently she's been tweeting and facebooking that we should watch her "antics" on the morning show.  Others can say a person does wacky "antics" but the person doing the "antics" can't. It violates some rule. 
  • Sports Talk Radio: Take a listen to Chris Arnold on The Fan in the evenings. The former Ticket host and Mavs MC may be the most clueless guy on radio. (But you have to fight through Gavin Dawson's made up opinions to listen to Arnold.) 
  • Still love this line: "Mitt Romney has an albatross around his neck of providing health care to poor people while governor." 
  • Adrianne Curry "Hey, Now."

Let's talk about getting fireworks banned in the country...not just the city! I am sick of my peace and quite being disturbed and the firefighters having to protect us from the idiots popping fireworks when it is so dry! Let's get them banned!!!

She's safe. I don't think that the petro-chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, and feces in the Trinity are radioactive.

I wonder how well or how poorly that old American Ayanamid plant site was cleaned up near that area of the Trinity.

I like how you completely avoided any responsibility on the part of the President for the wonderful jobs numbers by implying that Republicans are at fault. Poor Mr. Obama, just can't catch a break can he? When will you liberals wake up and realize that your policies are a massive failure. They failed in every state they have been implemented in, they have failed in Europe, they failed in the good ol' USSR, etc. But I suppose you and others like you will continue to defend him and his failures as is human nature. No one likes to admit defeat. Any chance you could add another bullet point to today's random thoughts explaining how this is good for Mr. Obama and his reelection without blaming Republicans, Mr. Bush, the Tea Party, or conservatives?

Britney Spears and Adrienne Curry must be extremely insecure, if they constantly feel the need to call attention to themselves in bikinis.

BTW, right-wingers don't have to worry about the number of unemployed, because Obama's idiotic, counterproductive policies ensure that the unemployment rate will remain high......history is on our side on this matter.

And don't bring up either of the Bush presidents and recessions....neither of the two men were genuine conservatives!

"I wonder how many right wingers wanted more people unemployed for political reasons?" Probably fewer than Democrats who wanted more Americans killed in Iraq for political reasons. (When's the last time you posted a body count, counselor? More than twice as many Americans have been killed in Afghanistan under Obama (3½ years) than under Bush (8 years.)

I understand how Cuban rubs people the wrong way as a person, but your hatred for Cuban the sports owner is absolutely ignorant. He is the sabertician of basketball, and single handly is responsible for the additions of replay in the NBA over recent years (ie end of game and 3 point line). He was the first to chart referees tendencies and efficencies/defficiencies, that the league has adopted to better the game. He spent over 183 million dollars in his 13 years as owner, just in luxury tax alone, not payroll. He wanted to win, and did anything he could to get us to the top of the mountain. Donnie Nelson has so much respect for him that he works without a contract. Seriously. He has no contract and never hasn't for years. What does that say about the differences between his dad and Cuban? Like I said your attach on him personally may be warranted, but you need to lay off of him on the sports side of things.

"[Unemployment] remains at 8.2%." Still a false number. Two million Americans adults have been added to the "Not in Labor Force" category just since June of last year -- and are therefore not counted as "unemployed."

Still love this line: "I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

And you can't forget this one: "I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class."

And this one: "I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."

Oh and this one too: "I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."

And you can't forget this one:

Obamacare will be an "albatross" around employers neck with an added cost of $75.00 per employee a week for all employing 50 or more! Guess Democrats don't care how much their employers pay for health insurance more under Obamacare unless they can figure out more for health care means fewer new employees, layoffs or less in wage increases.

How much did the administration fudge factor the data to "keep it" at 8.2?

Huh?

Nice cherrypicking of stats to fit your agenda WK. 2 can play that game. Let's compare that stat to how many Americans that have been killed in Iraq under Obama vs Bush.

I'm pretty sure you won't post those numbers side by side.

Simple reason for the lower numbers under Bush in Afghanistan. Bush pulled the majority of the troops out and took a hard right turn into Iraq leaving the Taliban and AlQueda free to rebuild their networks inside Afghanistan. Obama had to send troops back and finish the job after the enemy had time to recruit and dig in deep. Of course if he hadn't gone in to finish the job left undone, the Republicans would be chanting "soft on Terrorists".

Keep up your "fair and balanced" approach to the facts, wordkyle.

1152 - So a change in strategy by the Obama administration gets Americans killed in Afghanistan. (Note: Obama had the option to make that change because Iraq is no longer a threat...because of Bush.)

I'm not even making the argument that the strategy is incorrect. But the body count, which played such a major role in media coverage (and on this blog) is not even mentioned by them any more. Images of "flag-draped coffins" were used to influence public opinion in the run up to the 2006 and 2008 elections. Where is the coverage and outcry now?

Regardless, once again facts and actual numbers don't seem to matter to those who support Obama. The debt Democrats added since he took office don't matter. Ineffectiveness of Democrat "stimulus" spending doesn't matter. Taxes that Democrats added on the American middle class since Obama took office don't matter. What exactly do you guys base your opinions on?

I'm confused. I was under the impression that...
1) we wanted to show the world we weren't mean and war-happy. War was not going to be an option under Obama. But we sent troops to Afghanistan.
2) that terrorists were all created by conservative minds who were trying to pull the wool over poor Americans.
So what enemy was "recruiting" and digging in?

Please help this confused American out.

More lies from wordkyle. "Liberals" (or people of any political bent with any common sense) wish we hadn't invaded Iraq in the first place. That way there would be zero casualties in Iraq, and casualties in Afghanistan would have remained low because we wouldn't have abandoned Afghanistan for a trumped up war, leaving the Taliban and drug runners to take control of the country, having to essentially take it over a second time.

Who was it that abandoned Afghanistan for a war we know was a farce, leaving us a harder job to do in Afghanistan, but now with a two front war that everyone in history but Hitler and GWB knows better than to start?

Wasn't Obama, sweet tits.

Iraq was never a threat! They had no usable WMD and no ability to project their power outside of their boundaries because of years of enforcement (by Clinton) of the no-fly zone.

No matter how they say it, the Democrat excuse for Obama is always the same.

If for no other reason, the fact that Obama has been in office 3½ years and his own people argue that he's not responsible for anything in that time, should make you want to toss him out and vote for someone who at least casts a shadow. Didn't the President of the United States used to be the most powerful person in the world?

321 - Yeah, Bush's messy presidency started with NYC and DC. They were certainly hard to clean up. Can we take it that you favor the jihadist urban renewal plan for America? Letting them redecorate was certainly one choice. Any other choice was apt to be messy. Using a decade of hindsight, what choices would you have made?

Correct! Remember when we invaded Afghanistan to fight the Taliban? Then when we had momentum suddenly Saddam Hussein was more important than the person that actually attacked us on 9/11.

Remember the stockpiles of WMD and the yellow cake A-bomb that were going to be unleashed on Americans? How'd that weapons count work out for ya?

Now, we are back in Astan after the enemy have had the opportunity to recruit and rebuild.

Oh yeah, we killed Osama Bin Laden while we were at it.

Bush was handed a messy situation. He didn't clean it up before he left.

wordkyle said...

Bush certainly made mistakes in Iraq and Afghanistan. He paid a political price for mistakes he made. When he's the subject of discussion you can bring up your points again and I'll respond to them. Right now it's a diversion from the reality of Obama's body count.

Obama, the original topic, continues to skate by, paying no political price, despite the increased number of casualties in Afghanistan -- because the media (and other Liberal toadies) carry his water. Obama's coffins are invisible, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. When the subject does come up, the toadies revert to their various iterations of "Bush, Bush, Bush..."
