The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • There's normally a Christmas star hanging from a crane off of the Landmark site south of Decatur on 287, but I haven't seen it this year.
  • There's a PSA to stop sexual abuse I saw this weekend which might be the most powerful thing I've seen in a long time. It depicts just a regular college kid who's not a muscle head doing something to stop it. 
  • Mrs. LL and I went down to the Baylor game this weekend: (1) Hey, guy beside me, you want to get control of your kid? (2) And there was the grumpiest old woman in the history of ever sitting in front us. Lady, if you don't want to be there, don't come. (3) The crowd was overall insanely loud with the exception of about 15 minutes in the 4th quarter when every realized Florida State and Ohio State would win.  Then everyone snapped out of it. (4) Shout out to an old college roommate who saw me on the bridge. (5) There were still a lot of Game Day signs on display. Funny, funny stuff. (6) Mrs. LL said she wanted popcorn but the stadium was sold out except for a bags which were big enough to feed an entire section. I bought one anyway. Her face was priceless when I returned. (7) Art Briles being shown on the video board after the game getting in the face of the Big 12 commissioner was a crazy scene that has been under reported 
  • Fox News is insane in general but their Saturday morning show is off the rails. I spent about 30 seconds on it and heard the three hosts blame the President for the current state of race relations. 
  • How much do you think 61 acres at I-35 and 114 just sold for? (That's just a link for the sale. I don't know the answer.)
  • A group of Navy SEALs had a failed mission over the weekend which ended up in two hostages being killed. And that occurred while two of its former members are profiting from writing about the Bin Laden raid. 
  • Someone called up Junior Miller on The Ticket this morning accusing him of having an anti-Baylor bias.  His recent ex-wife graduated from Baylor so that'll do it to you. I give him a pass. 
  • Mrs. LL and I watched Munich on Friday night. I think I know history but there are a ton of references in that film which were completely over my head. 
  • On the Karl Klement car lot south of Decatur, there are hundreds of white work trucks for sale. Who buys those? I mean, it seems like they are at least a third or more of the inventory. 
  • That wreck involving a teenager from Rhome described in the Update sounds horrific. Most accidents happen in a split second but this one sounds like you could see it coming. 
  • If you tried to get into Fort Worth from Wise County this morning. Good luck. I-35 was shut down between Basswood and 820 due to a fatal wreck. And it's still shut down.

White Trucks: Those are fleet sales, BG. Mainly its Oilfield and Oilfield Service companies that buy those. And yes, its a big part of their sales.

I too was wondering where there star on the crane was. Usually it was up before Thanksgiving, if I recall correctly.

Today's RTG is troubling. The body is bowchickawow but the face looks like a dude. I'm conflicted.

Obama intervenes in highly racially charged situations that are local matters, and has been doing so for five years.

He often chooses the black person's side first without hearing out the other side before passing judgement.

He ain't helping!

And I don't see Obama encouraging blacks to pull their pants up and show some pride and self respect in themselves and stop blaming racism for their problems.

Obama could have advanced race relations in tremendous ways by doing and saying certain things. Instead of helping, he only aggravates matters.

Re Fox News + Obama + race -- I'm usually okay with responding to obvious bait, but that's a bit much even for me. Don't get lazy just because of the holidays.

the downhill slide of race relations in the US is not Obama's fault. everyone knows it is your fault.

I will respond to the bait, sorta.
I've been reading this blog for several years now. I try to figure out Barry and it's a bit difficult. If someone could help me articulate my thoughts, it would be appreciated.
I don't think Barry's liberal mindset is based in ideology. It seems like it's elitism. Does he think he's just too smart for conservatism? I'm just not certain what it is.

Aw come on now, Kyle, I'm sure you can muster a douchey comment today. Give it a try!

I'm with BogOfNothing guy on Briles. Good coach, but as a human he's a pretty douchey guy. What he did was inappropriate.

What ever happened to the unwritten code that SEALs never talked publicly about their missions?

The President has set race relations back 50 years. When he jumps in with "If I had a son" and a thousand other times always race baiting. He will have and great career with the "Reverends" when he finally leaves office.

The star will not be hung this year at the landmark south site. Owners were afraid the blacks might riot and loot the town over the white Christmas lights. Not worth the risk...

RTG definitely has a butterface. Most likely has a mustache as well. But that body....wowsa. Put a burqua on her.

"I don't think Barry's liberal mindset is based on ideology."

No its based on idiocracy

"It seems like it's elitism."

Barry is better than everyone else; he's an attorney... He is insanely jealous of folks such as Mark Cuban for instance


"Does he think he's just too smart for conservatism?"

No, it's too hard

Bridgeport...where even 3 black kids and a token white shooter can't make you competitive in basketball. Looking forward to seeing all those faces when Decatur beats "the great black hopes"!!!!!

Goober said...

I am probably wrong but today's RTG looks like the actress that played Russell Crowe's wife in "Gladiator".

"Hey guy, you want to get control of your kid?" That's how the liberal weenies raise their kids these days. I thought you were into that sort of thing, Skippy?

Is this the RTG?

The star is not Landmark's, it's the business on the south side of FM 2264.

Really going out of your way this morning to try to pin something on WK. Must be pathetic to be you.

1:40, if this were school, 11:51 would be trying to bully wordkyle out of his lunch money.

Pretty sure KK is a holding lot for metroplex dealers. Most of those fleet trucks will be sold by other dealers.

I would guess that plot of land would sell $50-$60k an acre...
But what do I know?

OOOOOHHHHHH, Nanabobo.

So childish...so stupid...so liberal.

Skippy, I guess 53 per cent of the Americans are off the rails too because they believe Obammy is causing racial tension in the US.

Barry, you and I don't seem to see eye to eye much at all, but I will say I've enjoyed seeing you in total love with your wife, kids, and married life. You HAVE changed for the better because of that btw. Think about the ways you have changed since you married that gal. I do love seeing what the love of a good woman can do for a man! And taking responsibility for the kids is a huge kudos to you! Love seeing the new and improved BG!
