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

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • There was a huge Internet rumor yesterday of Tony Romo being in a car crash and breaking both of his legs. I never saw it, and first heard about it on the way home when both The Ticket and The Fan were talking about it simultaneously. Apparently the rumor was engulfed by the Facebook World and never got traction in the Twitter World.    
  • Bud Kennedy last night with a picture of Greg Abbott addressing the Tea Party in Kingwood: He didn't know what the speech was about, but he doubted it concerned voting rights or diversity. Funny.
  • Sports: (1) #1 Baylor women beat #3 UConn on the road last night, and I watched every second of it, (2) Johnny Manziel is only taking online classes this Spring because he's become such a distraction in Aggieland. Kind of defeats the college experience, doesn't it? (3) Josh Hamilton got everyone fired up because he said Dallas was not a "baseball town". He may be dumb, but he's right about that, (4) The only college football teams to go for it on fourth down more than they punted it are Air Force and Army. That seems fitting. 
  • Ted Cruz is getting roasted by being the new "bad boy" of the Senate. I respect him for taking the positions he said he would, but he will be incredibly insignificant and irrelevant for doing so. 
  • Tim Tebow is going to speak at the First Baptist of Dallas but now the national media is finally focusing on its crazy (and, my words, "ambiguously gay" pastor.) "Agreeing to speak at intolerant church is Tebow's greatest sin" reads the headline.
  • Mrs. LL made a call back joke the other day to the Geico commercial of, "Because I'm a pooooooothole." Loved that commercial. 
  • Ticket fans only: Did former Tech coach Spike Dykes record that commercial in a well? 
  • From the Update: "Senior citizens ages 55 and older are invited to an enchilada lunch with all the trimmings noon Thursday at the Decatur Senior Citizen Center." 55? Woah! Woah! Woah! Let's tap the brakes on that minimum age!
  • The jury in Fort Worth returns today to deliberate the guilt/not guilt of the female counselor accused of "sexual assault" by using her position to seduce a husband of another women. Hey, sue her if you want to but the State of Texas prosecutes that as a crime?
  • Something I read in 2011 that stuck with me: The federal government does not have the budget of the typical American family. During times of a recession, if the government does not spend more than it has, the country might not pull out of it. 
  • All the Girls In The House are convinced the Family Pup is pregnant. 
  • If I ever read a headline about a shooting in or outside of a metroplex club, I have to click on the story to read the name of the place. There was one last night in Dallas. The name of the club? "Chocolate City".
  • What I refer to as a "Hey, Now", TMZ says "Great Googly Moogly!" I may like their saying better. (In reference to a new pic of Katherine Webb, the Alabama QB's girlfriend.)
  • I finally watched Duck Dynasty last night after everyone told me that I would hate it. I didn't. But I didn't like it either. It's more scripted than a State of the Union speech.

Don't think anyone is arguing with Josh about the metroplex being football dominant. But when he said if you know baseball you will cheer for him upon his return and if you don't know baseball you will boo him. Thats what fired people up.

We are not that stupid. Pretty sure we can tell when someone isn't putting out the effort and drops a routine fly ball.

I think your bullet points got mixed up. 55 was the minimum age at the tea party get together with Greg Abbott. Doubt they served enchiladas, though.

Criticisms and predictions about a Tea Party Republican by a notoriously anti-Republican, anti-Tea Party columnist in an anti-Republican, anti-Tea Party newspaper and by a notoriously anti-Republican, anti-Tea Party blogger hardly constitute disinterested opinion. God only knows what Washington D.C. will do to Ted Cruz, but so far so good. Is it better to elicit nods of approval and pats on the back from one's enemies, or to provoke their complete outrage? (My opinion? What's best in life is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.)

LOL... "Dallas is not a baseball town," says the former Ranger who is now a LA Angel.

'cause LA is SUUCH a baseball town.

Double eyeroll because same former Ranger never really showed he loved the game here. He is quite possibly the most-talented player who doesn't love the game.

Can deadly force be used on an escape prisoner if he is handcuffed?

So did you think Duck Dynasty was supposed to be unscripted? Do you think they just take cameras out and everyone just talks whenever they want? I like the show because it is so funny and actually has a lesson or summary at the end. It is a family show that anyone can watch. It is not filthy. Perhaps that's why you did not like it.

Ambiguously gay? What are you talking about, friend of friends?

News woman Ashley Morrison is way too hot for that dweeb looking chock monster. All of his pics with her and he always has that raised eyebrow surprised look like: "how did I score a hot wife??"

Guess what? I am wondering that too.

Are politicians considered escaped prisoners by some odd chance?

Fifty-five is the minimum age for entry into AARP

Josh Hamilton is taking cheap shots at the Metroplex. Not cool, man! Has he started taking Chris-Chris lessons from C.J. or what?

I don't believe those pix of Katherine Webb do justice to Great Googly Moogly or even Hey Now. She's got a look on her face like there's a loaded diaper somewhere very nearby, and that suit is ignernt looking. Either go full one-piece or two-piece, not some mutant hybrid!

OMG BG although that is not the most wrong thing JMK ever dreamed up but it is one of the most ridiculous. Whether you know it or not or believe it or not every thing you believe about economics hinges on what that crazy Brit said 100 years ago.

Without a doubt, that is the single most obviously-scripted reality show that I've ever seen.

TF@9:30 - Thanks for recognizing the quote. Some call it plagiarism, but I prefer to think of it as a Tarantino-style homage.

AARP entry age is 50, check with your local card carrying blog host.

Is it just me or is RTG a possible repeat?

Isn't the RTG a repeat? I have seen her before. Bacon is still an idiot. We need a new scale on this blog.

I will never disagree that increased government spending is key in a recession but I will argue with you all day long on how the government should spend. Increased entitlements are fine with me as long as they are temporary and massive new entitlements are not created. The goal is to have a safety net that facilitates job and business growth once you ride out the downturn. Obama has failed miserably in leading us past the recession. The next 4 years will be no different.

Will the chicken "s" disd school board member who thinks that the majority of parents and kids in Decatur elementary schools are genetically flawed show up for the board meeting Thursday? I won't forget to be there!

Well, Hamilton, you didn't play ball in Dallas, you nimrod. I believe it was Arlington. And, YES, my family knows baseball, and we will be there on April 5th, BOOING you!!!! We are ready!

Spike Dykes "Reagor-Dykes Autogroup" commercial is terrible.

The song is bad, it doesn't really advertise what they do, or where they are, or why anything... Then Spike makes an appearnce on a tin-can & kite string phone...

You are correct, it is just bad.

Bud Kennedy, He didn't Know what the speech was about but he feared it concerned limiting fat, obese, obnoxious liberals to only one dozen doughnuts a day instead of the usual two or three for Big Bud K.

During the Bush years, my insurance went up $300.00 per month. Same insurance, only changes were the premium and the co-pays(they went up too), so really more than $300.

Show me where he said "the majority of parents and kids in Decatur Elementary schools are genetically flawed." Please offer proof that he said that.
