blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen

12.13.2012

  • After six hours of deliberations, the guy on trial in Wise County for "continuous sex assault of a child" was found guilty yesterday evening.  The punishment phase begins today with the range of punishment being no less than 25 years and no more than Life.  He cannot get probation. There is no early parole. (And I can predict what will happen -- it will make sense tomorrow when I can say more.) 
  • I mentioned that the range of punishment for Intoxication Manslaughter is 2 to 20 years and the possibility of probation. A girl in Wichita Falls yesterday received a three year sentence yesterday from a jury for that offense wherein her brother was killed.
  • Cowboy Josh Brent's blood alcohol level was released yesterday: .18.  I'm more stunned by how quickly it was analyzed than the level.
  • Horrible and strange story of a lawyer who was apparently "beaten" on Greenville Avenue in Dallas and now is in a medically induced coma. From a report this morning, however, it sounds like it might have been one blow to the nose causing him to fall back and hit his head. 
  • That low hanging front end on Mrs. LL's Gangsta Mobile is a nightmare. But I've become an expert in inconspicuous zip tie repair.
  • Saw someone write that Decatur was on "Shipping Wars" last night. I don't know what that is. 
  • One of my weird greatest joys: Taking two swigs of tomato juice immediately upon waking up. 
  • The guy who carved a pentagram in his son's back then took the blood and smeared it around his front door.  I'm guessing he watched the Passover scene in The Ten Commandments
  • Decatur attorney Mark Howell emailed me yesterday to say that he won the Punt, Pass and Kick Competition as a kid.  I find his story simply unbelievable. 
  • As the malls are packed and everyone attends Christmas parties, a homeless man was crushed to death yesterday in Fort Worth after the dumpster he was sleeping in got picked up by a trash compacting truck. 
  • I watched some of the Sandy concert last night. It was a heck of a lineup. It was a heck of a Geriatric Convention.

I tuned in for the Kanye West portion of the Sandy Concert to see if he was going to say that Obammy hates black people but he never did.

Shipping Wars is a show where various people bid to haul whatever needs to be hauled. Last night, they were in Decatur to pick up bulls for a rodeo.

I'm stunned to find out that there are still "homeless people" under the Obammy regime. I thought the "Lord and Savior" was going to change all of that.

Plain old tomato juice?! Bleeeeecccchhhhh!
But, if you add it to a healthy helping of vodka...that's a real eye-opener!


Well, it's a bloody Mary morning
Baby left me without warning
Sometime in the night
So I'm flying down to Houston
With forgetting her the nature of my flight

That low hanging front end on Mrs. LL's Gangsta Mobile is a nightmare.

I have the same car and have for 5 years now. I have never had one incident with mine but, I am aware that it's there so I make it a point to do things that wouldn't damage it.

Just saying.

Want to know how to avoid getting crushed by a trash truck?

Quit blaming others for your sorry life. Clean yourself up. Get a job and make positive life decisions.

Simple. There's no excuse for people to be homeless.

Guy getting crushed to death in a dumpster

Bridgeport made it to one of those "gossip" mags at the check-out lines ...the story of the lady who hired a hitman to kill hubby #10's friend and the friend's wife. Wise County's movin on up...

Kenya West awarded the absolute worst performance of the night in the Sandy relief concert. Holy Stink! I've never seen anything worse. And he was wearing a skirt? Messed up!! Totally messed up!

Does Mark Howell pick a different person each day to e-mail that he won a punt, pass and kick competition as a kid?

Tomato juice? Must be boosting your patassium intake...a good thing to do.

9:39 Your statement, "Quit blaming others for your sorry life. Clean yourself up. Get a job and make positive life decisions. Simple. There's no excuse for people to be homeless." makes it clear that you don't have much of a handle on reality.

While I am sure there are some that fit your concept of too lazy to work, there are many others that don't. "No Excuse" is complete BS. For example:

1) The disabled
2) The mentally ill
3) Women fleeing from domestic violence

Most recent info on the homeless in the U.S.:
22% - serious mental illnesses or are disabled
30% - substance abuse problems
13% - have regular jobs

80% of the homeless are only classified as such for less than 3 weeks.
10% are homeless for up to 2 months.
10% are the chronic homeless. These typically struggle with mental illness and/or substance abuse.

Mark Howell had the "tripod" stance advantage in that competition giving him more balance and stability.

10:45, 30% substance abuse problems equals poor life choices.

I still have no compassion for any lawyer.

This guy gets the Sh%t kicked out of him and we call it a tragedy..... he kicks the sh%t out of people everyday and he calls it his "job"

What goes around comes around. Karma is a bitch in heat.

9:39. You are very fortunate to not have mental health issues in your family. I do, and have had to deal with the homeless issue. It's not fun. You should be thankful.

11:00, 22% - serious mental illnesses or are disabled equals no fault of their own. Keep throwing the baby out with the bathwater... it's the "Conservative" way.

I just can't get past the the blonde's 'claymation-fred-astaire' chin she is sporting. I suppose it would make a nice resting spot for 14-incher.

22% - serious mental illnesses or are disabled (Where's the families or State Hospitals?) Mental issue people are roaming the streets, homeless? WOW
30% - substance abuse problems (Poor life choices)
13% - have regular jobs (and homeless?) LMAO (poor life choices)

Those people should appreciate those Generiatic People in the audience. It won't be long belong Obama sucks all their money up, so then there will be more people wanting more money from the government to support them in this ever-growing 'entitled' society. Sheesh

The mentally ill cannot be committed to state facilities against their will. Families cannot force the mentally ill to receive treatment. And families cannot force the mentally ill to accept help.

I know it's a scary thought, but sometimes really bad things happen to families/people even when they didn't make poor choices.

It's much easier to say "As long as I make good choices, the bad stuff can't happen to me." I truly hope that continues to hold true for you. It's a real kick in the gut when it doesn't...

12:11 What you write speaks volumes about what you don't know.

"Where's the families or State Hospitals?" Perhaps you should learn that the numbers of homeless would be MUCH larger if families didn't step in. Additionally, the forceful commitment of individuals to at State facility is not easy and it's certainly not cheap to the taxpayer.

"Mental issue people are roaming the streets, homeless? WOW" Clearly, your vast education is evident in your use of the term "mental issue people". No doubt, we aren't surprised that some people with mental illness are homeless. What we are surprised is that you label them as lazy and claim that if they would apply themselves, their lives can be just wonderful. You don't have a clue.

"30% - substance abuse problems (Poor life choices)" Sure, substance abuse was a choice at one time...and it's a choice each time an addict uses. Yet, they are still homeless. The solution to their problem is not to simply yell at them and tell them to "get a job". In most instances, it's more complicated than that.

"13% - have regular jobs (and homeless?) LMAO (poor life choices)" Again, you show your ignorance. There are plenty of poorly-educated people that cannot make it on minimum wage. Some of them have made poor life choices (we all have from time to time), but not all of them are in their situation because of them.

You seem to spend a lot of your time mocking the less-fortunate. I truly don't know what you gain from feeling superior to someone that's mentally ill, disabled, abused, or not intelligent enough to hold a good job.

Barry, a word of advice. Never use the phrase "low hanging front end" around a lady you care for. Too many chances of a misunderstanding. Been there & had to but the flowers.
