Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • As much as I enjoy Baylor football, I went to bed last night at halftime of the Holiday Bowl. ESPN had earlier backed the kickoff to 9:00 PM. Good grief. (Side note: Baylor's quarterback Nick Florence may be the most underrated quarterback in the history of ever: Led the nation in total offense / Threw for more yards than RG3.)
  • Then I woke up early this morning and finished watching the game before 7:00 a.m. 
  • I've been to San Diego once. I could live in San Diego. 
  • But I'm not ruling out my Costa Rica retirement. 
  • Mrs. LL saw Les Miserables last night. Although I'm we all know that I am a  man of culture, I don't have a clue about that classic piece of work. (But she mentioned that it was two and a half hours long so I main remain clueless.)
  • A deal will get done on the "fiscal cliff". Bank on it. Then we'll see both sides hold press conferences about how each was willing to compromise for the good of the country. You are watching a self-serving one act play.
  • I came home yesterday and the Christmas tree was down as well as all of the decorations in the house. That gave me an odd feeling of rejuvenation. Weird.
  • Rare tweet by me last night: "Waiting for momma."
  • Pitbull is going to be at Winstar Casino on New Year's Eve? Does that cater to their demographic?
  • I learned that with a rare radio fly by that landed on WBAP this morning. In the background they were playing a song by "Pitbull with T-Pain." Hal Jay said that sounded like something he would tell his doctor that he had. [Insert wheeze laugh.]
  • David Dewhurst claims a campaign aide stole over a half million dollars in campaign funds. The campaign aide's best defense in my opinion? Blame the Chinese.

Familiarity with the classic novel has very little to do with whether you will enjoy the movie. It has more to do with your level of involvement with musical theater. If I had to sit through two and a half hours of that (or any length of time, really!), I would most certainly be MORE miserables

Dew Wurst is having a tough time isn't he? Probably needs to cut more money out of public education, pass some more stuff to make women have babies and run for office again.

Speaking of the fiscal cliff:

We have the largest group of idiotic fools running our country that has ever occupied Washington. Remember Enron? They make Enron look like a well managed company.

12:46 Used "truth" and "Rush" in the same post.

Limited facts, skillfully twisted for those of limited intelligence.

I know BG's athletic and political predictions are legend but his guess on the economic cliff will be incorrect. Boehner will stall any meaningful change till after his re-election as speaker. Then Mr. Statesman will change his position and twist some arms to get a few R's to vote for measures that might avoid another recession. The economy requires continued gov't spending and needs some additional revenue from the 2%. Meanwhile the stock market and your 401k's will gyrate causing ulcers for many.

BG's take on the Baylor QB may be a huge national oversight.

2:07, See if you can debate this. It's always the liberal way of thinking to raise revenue is raise taxes. How about easing taxes, regulations on business which would encourage more hiring which puts more people paying taxes which would increase revenue without your beloved tax increases. But the real problem is over spending and once again the liberal mindset is entitlements, waste and fraud. If you create an environment which would put more people to work, you would have less entitlement programs which would greatly reduce spending. Why is such a simple solution so hard for the democrats to understand?

Obama just signed executive order giving big fat pay raises to govt employees, but no deal on cliff..

2:07 It is because for Democrats taxation is like religion. It is not rational. In their religion, higher taxes = higher good. They hate the word "profit", which must be punished and vilified at every opportunity, thus burnishing their faith.

2:55 You seem to propose "Bushonomics" again. Isn't this what Bush did: reduce taxes and government oversight and regulation in the early 2000's? What happened then? A booming economy tanked, banks exploited questionable loopholes leading to the banking mess by 2008, getting involved in 2 wars without paying for them and providing a new drug benefit without paying for it. And you think this was an appropriate approach?

If we do go over the cliff, the economy will contract, unemployment will increase further, both military and government will contract (further unemployment) and cause reduction in social programs that not only affect lazy workers but also their innocent children.

It's not a pretty picture but it's overly simplistic to claim we should just cut taxes and reduce government spending and all will be fine.

What no RTG rating yet well I'll take a sot just to start it off 3.75/5 pretty nicre.

4:54, You don't grasp Reagonomics. It's still more of the blame Bush game. I'm not proposing going to war. I am proposing pulling out of those shit holes, stationing the military on the borders, not allowing Democrats to control the banking system. You seem to gloss over the unemployment rate under Bush that is about a third lower than it is right now. Nice try at proposing more Obammynomics, which any idiot can see is driving us over the cliff.

Repubs mantra "cut spending" is a hoax. They just approved a defense spending bil 1.7 billion, read that again billion, ABOVE what the generals wanted.

Now that's frugal!!!!!

A Sunday Wa Post headline: "Talks to avert the fiscal cliff suffered a "major setback" Sunday, Democrats said, when Republicans demanded significant cuts to Social Security benefits in exchange for President Obama's request to extend emergency unemployment benefits and cancel deep cuts to the Pentagon and other agency budgets."

NOTE: Republicans (1) demanded "cuts" to social security and (2) oppose extending unemployment benefits and (3) oppose avoiding cuts to the defense budget. Now, please have wordy or other anti-government Wise Co folks explain how they support the Republican position.

If they keep this up, we'll sink back into recession or worse, depression.
