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

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • We saw Zero Dark Thirty this weekend. Review will be forthcoming, and I'm definitely in the minority on this flik. 
  • Any suggestions about the Florida beaches in the Panhandle?
  • There was a time in my life that dogs really did disgust me. Now I kind of want one around me at all times. 
  • We were watching some awards show last night, and I tried to shut down the house (unsuccessfully) because the great and white haired Dick Van Dyke was receiving a lifetime achievement award. Afterwards, Mrs. LL said, "I can't believe they didn't show any of the clips from him in the Naked Gun movies."  It might have been the most awkward household moment ever.
  • Former WBAP host Mark Davis is becoming a borderline religious zealot nut.
  • A bat attacked a college basketball game this weekend. 
  • The lack of football began to sink in this weekend. Not that I'd watch it if it were on, but I just like to have the option. 
  • The Brazilian nightclub fire fire that killed at least 238 people was horrific. (Irrelevant Side Note: All club-goers that got out seemed to not have shirts on.)
  • I've heard that in north Fort Worth a former huge grocery store is being converted into a "satellite church" for crazy pastor Ed Young's Fellowship Church. That means he'll be broadcast on a screen. Idiocracy.
  • Dallas debuts tonight. Mrs. LL will be in the crowd scene when Sue Ellen makes a campaign appearance. (Unless the scene ends up in the cutting room floor which would also mean that Mrs. LL will end up on the living room floor.)
  • I forgot to mention that at the Stock Show I met a lady who seemed to be in charge of "Bond's Ranch" as in the Bond's Ranch that is the basis of Bond's Ranch Road. 
  • The Obama re-election and the Benghazi story petering out may put the Far Right in therapy.
  • I'm seeing a headline that a person was arrested in Dallas for shining a laser at a Dallas Police Department helicopter. Without reading the story, how in the world could they ever find him?

Nice, I wouldn't mind replying to her backpage ad for a lunch time quickie.

Destin is nice a place to go in Florida. It has grown alot in the past 15 years and there are worse places to rent a beach cabin.

Jerry is better.

Now that JR is dead the Dallas remake will soon follow.

I hope Tower of Hate is worth Googling.

Is googling a word?

The liberal left bills itself as a freedom loving group. The group that wants to teach the rest of the world about tolerance and respect. Barry is a shining example.

The Benghazi security problem is illustratrd by congress withholding funds requested by the State Dept for more security. And did did you know there more military band troops than people in the entire State Dept? Kinda shows where the priorities are, huh?

Skippy,

We have been to Destin twice over the past couple of years and are head back in June. Love it!

The reason the Benghazi story is petering out is because the right only wanted to find something to hang around Obama and Hillary's necks. The truth is that we have to maintain a level of respect across the Islamic countries if we want to keep the peace. Having a large contingent of Marines on site at an embassy does not work well when you are trying to build a relationship with a new controlling group in a country like Libya.

"the Far Right in therapy." Considering the stances you've taken over the last few years, it seems like you'd consider anyone less liberal than Chairman Mao "far right." As for therapy, go to your local gun shop to see how Conservatives are dealing with Obamaworld.

The Obama re-election and the Benghazi story petering out may put the Far Right in therapy.


If those killed were in your family, I bet you would want more answers; or maybe you would be satisfied with a run-around lame as$ story they gave.

Biden Balls of Steel comment still gets me.

wordkyle said...

858 - "Hanging around Obama and Hillary's necks" is the albatross of 1) Ignoring requests for more security, a move that led to the deaths of Americans, and 2) (Mis)representing the attack as a spontaneous mob reaction to a Youtube video, rather than the planned terrorist attack it was -- and of which the administration had prior warning. The story's petering out because 1) Hillary had several weeks to rehearse and polish the story she told; 2) Republican Senators are infuriatingly reluctant to call Democrats on the carpet for their malfeasance; and 3) The media want the story to go away.

Baylor Too said...

Ed Young's church already has satellite campuses in north Dallas, central Fort Worth, and MIAMI. (Yes, Miami, Florida. That way, they can deduct all those private jet flights down there.)

Have you ever been to one of their services? It's about like going to the movies. Very efficient. They get you in and out very quickly so the next service can start on time.

There's a sucker born every minute.

There are pastors on screen ALL OVER DFW. I can name 5 right off the top of my head. There is a large church off I-20 in FW that it not only is a screen, but it is a different pastor on screen every week from all over the country.

Any suggestions about the Florida beaches in the Panhandle?

1. Florida sucks.
2. The beaches are pretty, but some of them are like glass shards. Do not do something that causes you to fall or else you'll have what looks like road rash.

There was a time in my life that dogs really did disgust me. Now I kind of want one around me at all times.

That explains today's RTG.

The Obama re-election and the Benghazi story petering out may put the Far Right in therapy.

They don'
t believe in therapy as a general rule. That, and they don't know when they're done--just look at wordturd's posts.

Perdido Key is the best spot on the Florida Panhandle. Isolated but not too. Next = Navarre by the pier. Especially if you fish. Pensacola Beach has the best sand.

the awards show you watched last night was the SAG-AFTRA affair. I think that's the first time I've seen (part of) it, and it was odd. Actors only, and it still took about three hours. It was all about "brothers and sisters in the union" with an occasional nod to an agent or director. Can't remember which actress it was (Julianne Moore?) that read the name of every actor who was in the work for which she won. That seemed excessive

The Pro Bowl - There is some discussion about doing away with it. I think there is an argument for that for these reasons:
1. one side scored 62 points
2. one side didn't score 62 points.
The players may be even more upset with Goodell if he pulls the plug on it; they like going to Hawaii for vacation and not really playing very hard. But the lowest salary in the NFL is several hundred thousand dollars, and these are the best players so you know they all make much more than that. They shouldn't get any sympathy if that perk is lost.

What do all those loudmouths have to say about that tower grafitti? You know, the ones who say Wise County is the most racist and bigoted (and illiterate) place in the nation?

Here's a hint for your last point: they were in a helicopter! They can look down onto the world, and probably have one of those great big spotlight thingies. Assuming it was at night

Destin or Ft. Walton Beach for Florida or....take Mrs. LL to Hawaii!!

Re: The Florida Panhandle (We call it Baja Alabama)

I would recommend the Destin Seafarer Condos (They have a website). Reasonably priced for what you get and close to anything you would want to do. Next door is the Back Porch restaurant and Bar… really good place to get out of the heat and have a great rum concoction. Grayton Beach is an easy drive for “art galleries”, antiques and good dining (I recommend the “Red Door” (arrive early)).Nearby Okaloosa Island has a number of attractions as well. I know I sound like the Chamber of Commerce…I’m not I just grew up there some sixty odd years ago and I return every chance I can.

Are you talking about the former store at Basswood and Beach? If you are, that will be a Gateway Church satellite campus, not Fellowship.

Anonymous said...

Ed Young has a satellite church in Cowtown on Carroll Street across from Montgomery Plaza. The church is in the old Gernsbacher restaurant supply building. Well it's not the old, old Gernsbacher's. I think the original one was on White Settlement Road.

Destin is the ONLY good thing about the Florida (gulf-side). Ft Meyers Beach isn't too bad either. It's just that florida is the armpit of the Gulf....

I've only been to Destin and it's outstanding. The beaches were as good as any I've visited in the Caymans.

And as others have said, Ed Young has been simulcasting to multiple locations for more than 5 years.

Any suggestions about the Florida beaches in the Panhandle?

1. None of these people know what they are talking about in regards to Northwest Florida.
2. St. George Island in Apalachicola Bay is one of the best beaches in America that nobody knows about, Google it. I personally can't stand the over commercialized Destin, Fort Lauderdale, or Miami beaches. SGI is the perfect place for a person from Decatur to enjoy a vacation... If you want to have "entertainment" go to Destin. If you want to have peaceful time on a beach, go to SGI.
3. Have dinner and drinks at the Blue Parrot
4. Have the Mignionette oysters at Up the Creek Oyster Bar in Apalachicola
5. See live music at Harry A's.
6. Great beach houses for any budget and size of family.

Panhandle beaches...
Destin is beautiful, but now very commercialized. Go east of there 5-30 miles:
Seagrove, Santa Rosa Beach, Seaside, WaterColor and WaterSound are all good. Not cheap but not near as built up as Destin.
Most people get around on bikes (you can rent) and foot, lots of trails, hiking, cool local bars, kids love it. Plenty of houses for rent on VRBO, but usually rent for a minimum of 7 nights Sat-Sat.

Mark Davis is becoming a religious zealot nut because he is trying to redeem himself with the almighty for breaking his marital vow to his wife who was disabled and the Lord when he said "till death do us part." Davis then married a young thing.

May the lord have mercy on Mark Davis' soul for tearing apart a marriage that the Lord saith "let no mean tear asunder."

Don't go to the Panhandle, the beaches around Amarillo suck. I would go to Florida or if time don't allow, Galveston.

To bad Mark Davis isn't a Muslim. Then his religious zealotry would be acceptable to you. What is it with you Dems and thinking every God fearing person is a religious zealot nut job, but you'll bend over backwards to protect the real religious zealots.

Definition of a Racketeering, Ed Young style:

1. Your target market is people in the top 20% income level.

2. Set up a comfortable place for people to visit once a week, put on a little entertainment and a motivational message, and they'll pay you 10% of their gross income!

3. Set up franchises across the country.

Woot! P.T. Barnum would be proud.

Sooo...it's a brick and mortar networking members' site where well-to-do folks can ease their guilt over religion without the fire and brimstone mess, while displaying their righteousness to others?
I personally feel that if the preacher/spiritual advisor leads a more lavish lifestyle than the flock, question his motives.

Big time religion is big time business.

One day you Bible thumpers will figure out that most of the big time preachers are more interested in their own bank accounts instead of your salvation, and you will stop being lambs led to the slaughter.

They are disgusting, they are a pox on society, they are false idols. They worship themselves above all else.

But I do know, at least one of them makes a hell of a potato salad.
