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

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Motorcycle death in Hood County yesterday. He was a young guy with a wife and five kids.
  • The University of Texas announced a game with Ohio State in 2023. Yep, 2023.
  • A metroplex cheerleader set a record for backflips which earned her a trip to the Today Show. The record was set during a game between between St. Mark’s School of Texas and The Oakridge School --- both high tone all-boys private schools. But the record setter was from Hockaday -- a high tone all-girls school. That's apparently what all-boys schools do: Borrow high tone all-girl school for cheerleaders. (Not sure why I found that interesting.)
  • Mrs. LL was an extra in the filming of a Dallas episode yesterday and was a foot from Patrick Duffy. 
  • When she told me that all I could think about was Cartman from Southpark yelling the name of Patrick Duffy.  I looked it up and that came from the third episode ever which aired in 1997. My mind works very oddly. 
  • Content warning and racism warning: A bus driver in Cleveland  gives a mouthy girl an uppercut  which is one of the most violent things I've ever seen. I was curious if the Cleveland media had jumped on this story and it appears this morning they are aware of it. I bet it goes national. 
  • Texas/OU is upon us. I wouldn't bet on this game for anything. And I love the 11:00 a.m. start. 
  • Natalie Portman is in Austin shooting some movie and she is looking very "Texany Hey, Now."
  • I'd take the far right far more seriously if they didn't say things like "our country's survival depends on this election."  Hyperbole much?
  • The best I can tell, "Crazy Texas Mom" over on the blogroll over there attends Krum high school games. Bridgeport plays there tonight. Be on the lookout for her. (I think she'll have a glass of wine in one hand, a bottle of Paxil in the other, and shouting very unlady like things.)
  • I was watching Nancy Grace last night just to get wound up and heard the phrase "tertiary crime scene". I'll admit that I had never heard of that. 
  • Ben Affleck has a new movie called Argo about how the CIA snuck some Americans out of Iran during the Hostage Crisis. I had never heard that story before.

Maybe she should pay a visit to you first!!!

You not even going to mention Biden's behavior last night at the debate?

Biden's behavior was an embarrassment to the entire country. Ryan could not speak without Biden interrupting him. I believe the count I heard this morning was that Biden interrupted Ryan 84 times last night in the 90-minute debate.

This continues to show why we need new leadership in DC. The current administration has no plans at all to even attempt to respect the opposition's views and work with them. They may blame the Republicans all they want, but the blame lies solely with them.

Biden was to interrupt Ryan every time Ryan lied. I'd say heactually showed some restraint.

Natalie Portman is my all time favorite.

Motorcycles are the worst invention ever. Why anyone would have any desire to strap themselves to something that provides no more protection than a bicycle is beyond me. You screw up once and there's a good chance that its your last.
Ah, Evil Empire vs. The Trailer Park. There will be so many Wal-Mart shoppers watching and in attendance, I'm surprised you don't see more adds for that godforsaken company.
Technically, every election cycle is the most important. I do agree though, it puts me in power down mode. The left and right are really just competing to see who can be the ones that get the responsibility of sending us all to hell.
"Argo" is a pretty good story. Embellished some, as Hollywood can't help itself, but good none the less. Another great story that is a documentary on Netflix, is "Project Azorian: Raising K-129". It's about a joint CIA-private partnership to raise a sunken Soviet sub in the early 1970's that sunk northwest of Hawaii in 17,000 feet of water. If you're even remotely interested in engineering and/or espionage, as I am with both, I highly recommend it.

8:43, you. Think Romney. And a 14-year congressman are "new" leadership?

Ryan voted for TARP and the auto bailout. He wants the same cuts to Medicare that Obama does. Ryan voted to reduce funding for diplomatic security, and now complains that Obama didn't keep the diplomats secure! What a lying chump that guy is, and fool you are for swallowing it.

Biden said calm down will know when Iran gets close to a bomb!! I have a hard time believing that when it took them 3wks to figure out that it was not a video that caused the Al Quada to murder our Ambassador to Lybia. Biden was a jerk. And he was the one full of lies especially about Lybia. I don't understand how anyone can be behind this administration. The bible does say that men will be blinded I guess that is whats going on.

Cheerleader Story: Nice, good job. I even found myself tilting and leaning my head to help her stay in a straight line.

Natalie Portman: her expression looks like she ate poop.

Ben Affleck: Cant act. Enough said.

..if they didn't say things like "our country's survival depends on this election."

Its not just the far right saying that, sir. It is also the right, and the middle.

I don't swing that way, but Patrick Duffy is a VERY handsome man. I'll bet Mrs LL was breathing rapidly being so close to the gentleman.

My take on the debates is that Ryan actually won but not because he outperformed Biden. Biden's behaivor was off-putting to independents, so even though he probably edged Ryan in the actual debate, he lost the more important battle. The only win Biden gets is for energizing Dems by not getting his ass kicked.

Texas-OU is a mere shadow of what it once was. Particularly the downtown Dallas celebration. Saw some freaky things that would make your momma blush and your daddy bluster in years gone by. Freaky stuff.

Remember the Tehran embassy takeover like it was yesterday. Never felt so emasculated as an American as I did during that tumultuous time. They took and held our embassy & we couldn't do a darn thing. Then the disaster in the desert during the secret recovery mission. Jimmy Carter was really snakebit on that situation. Was surprised we got them back alive eventually.

Oakridge isn't all boys. Or at least it wasn't when I was in high school. Their girls wore the awesome private school outfits.

I would take the far left more seriously if they didn't say things like "the difference between us and Republicans is that we don't think that kids should go to bed hungry at night." Or "climate change is the greatest threat to mankind." or "we are three days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America."

When someone is lying and time is limited, you do jump in to stop them. Ryan lied way too many times.

W/ all due respect, Barry, I'm not buying that statement. If they hadn't said that, you simply would focus on another statement they make that prevents you from taking them seriously. Come on, now.

Rage, you think things would be the same 4 yrs. from now whether it's Romney or Obama? Come on, now.

Barry, a good story on the recently departed Beano Cook in today's Austin American Statesman. Tells the story of how he had a hand in creating the Texas-Arkansas Great Shootout game in 1969. Interesting for football history buffs.

So Biden says the administration
didn't know that more security was requested in Libya.
You would think someone could have sent Obama a text
message that he could have read in the club house between
rounds.

wordkyle said...

The Obama administration spent what, six trillion dollars in its first three years?
-He's taken unprecedented action in appointing well-funded and unelected or approved czars to nearly Cabinet-level positions of power.
-He has instituted policies as law that the Congress specifically did not pass.
-He has bypassed laws that the Congress did pass.
-The government's credit rating was downgraded.
-American taxpayers are now part owners of an auto company that couldn't survive on its own.
-America is now hated by enemy states as much as when Bush was president.
-Worse, the US is now the target of derision rather than something to respect or fear, making Americans enticing targets.
And this was all due to the Obama administration.

So yeah, the survival of the Republic might be on a few people's minds.

When Mr. Biden said my friend, it sounded like an insult, or another way to not say a??hole to Mr. Ryan.

The "my friend" habit is from Biden's long stay in the Senate. Watch some Senate proceedings and -- as long as you are awake -- you will hear most of the Senators use the phrase. Both with honest and sarcasm.

Anonymous said...

Every time Ryan lied, Biden called him on it. Now the Republicans are calling him mean-spirited. Want to know when you've lost a debate? It's when you call your opponent mean-spirited.

I was expecting a rallying Republican battle cry of mean-spirited as soon as FOX News' Britt Hume said it.

Holy crap, that was SOFA KING AWESOME! Joe's "this f'ing guy!" face nearly killed me dead -- it was like, "Step off, young son, I'm gonna show you how this is done." That idiot Ryan sitting there with those stupid hound dog eyes, thinking he's going to teach the old man a thing or two, and Biden totally owned him from minute one.

Incidentally -- the only sad thing about what we saw last night is that the reason Joe Biden gets to call Ryan on all his bullshit, when Obama just has to stand there and take it from Romney, is that Joe Biden is a certified white person(TM). If Obama so much as breathes wrong, half of America flips their freaking lids about the "angry black man." White Privilege: It's Amazing!

Sadly, we can no longer bring in outside drinks. So, I'll just be the one with Paxil yelling unladylike things. Most of them will make so sense because a) I'll have wine before I go and b) I don't real football terms, so I make them up as I go. My family doesn't like to sit by me.

Ryan didn't lie much because he didn't answer any questions. When the statement was relayed from the veteran Biden gave an answer and Ryan gave a demonstration of the actions the veteran complained about.

Knew some AT&T people that had to sneak out of Iran when the embassy was attacked. Their leader lives just across the river from you.

Since Deaniacs inflitrated the Democratic Party in 2004, it has become the rude party. Biden interrrupted 82 times in 90 minutes to the pleasure of the base; however, Independent voters will decide this election.

One thing overlooked during this week of the Libya coverup and VP debate is the New Yorker article on the gold ring Obama has been wearing on his wedding finger since his days in Occidental College. It was the ring Michelle Obama placed on his finger when they were married 20 years ago. Inscribed on the ring is "There is no god except Allah"!

Now why would a Christian wear a gold ring declaring Allah as the only God.

How did we get to where we are now???

Since the Barry has not yet posted the scores from last night, let it be known Krum beat Bridgeport 34-14. They gave us a run for our money, but we rallied at the en and remain undefeated. And, I was on my best behavior just in case someone recognized me. Mostly. Next week, we're off to Decatur. But y'all see me all the time and just don't know it.
