The Campaign For DA

12.12.2014

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • "Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, filed a bill to decrease the number of teams advancing to the playoffs from each University Interscholastic League district from four to two." Not a bad idea but not exactly legislation worthy. 
  • I completely missed John McCain's condemnation of torture by the U.S. He might be my new hero. And Bill O'Reilly's treatment of him on Fox was embarrassing. 
  • Ran into the Junior In The House in the hallway about midnight last night. We exchanged simultaneous, "Where are you going?"
  • There was a shooting at a Fort Worth "club" last night and it drives me nuts that they never name the club.
  • Hey, whoever keeps sending me a comment about, "When are you going to talk about the resignation of [name redacted]?", I have no idea who that person is. 
  • I'll admit that I was confused by the budget vote yesterday and the anger of hardline Republicans. All the Democrats and a handful of right wingers gang up against the rank and file Republicans? 
  • Movies from this year that I'd be willing to watch: Boyhood, Wild, Gone Girl, and Nightcrawler. And the more I read about Gone Girl, the more I'm nervous about the fact that Mrs. LL went and saw it without me. 
  • I need to do my "worst person of the year" list again. 
  • The judge presiding over the trial of the Ex Kaufman JP for capital murder chastised the defense yesterday for repetitive witnesses. Hey, we are only talking about life and death. Let's move along. Sheesh. 
  • I sneezed yesterday and hurt my back. Not too bad, but it hurt all day. That scares me because I've heard that simple things like that can cause a disc to bulge. 
  • A conservative Denton County jury awarded a half million dollars in a slip and fall lawsuit against Walmart which the conservative Fort Worth Court of Appeals affirmed late yesterday? What is this? Bizarro World? 
  • I love the Cowboys visiting hospitals and food kitchens this time of year but, as I've said a million times, I'll give you credit when you don't tell the media you are going to do it. 
  • Mrs. LL gives me 100% immunity for whatever I write or whatever Random Thought Girl I post (hey, she knew what she was marrying), but last night I sensed she took offense to being called a "pack rat". But, on the bright side, she did track down the super glue I was looking for.
  • The Cowboys' and Little Elm native Cole Beasley was making the radio rounds yesterday. That guy has no personality and no sense of humor. And no one asked him about walking out of training camp his rookie year. 
  • Family Pup #2 (the rescue dog), who is well behaved but dumb as a box of rocks, somehow managed to get up on the kitchen table during the day when no one was there. (She had never done that before.) But, once up there, she wasn't smart enough to figure out how to get back down. She was stuck there in distress for what was probably hours. (This isn't her, but pretty much what she looks like.)
  • I once had an interview with a large law firm in Thanksgiving Tower. I remember being asked "What do you do for fun?" I dodged the question and the interviewer knew it. He then called me out on my answer. I should have just said, "I'm in law school. I don't have any fun."

Hurt you back sneezing? Better have bone desity test...men can get osteoporosis too..at your age. I am suffering terrible pain from fractured vertebre now..but I am female. Seriously, have it checked out..there are things they can do to stop it before it starts. Visit your doc or the local pain mangement clinic.

I guess listening to witnesses saying what a great guy he was somehow became boring. Especially since most of these so called character witnesses hadn't seen him in 30 years. Keep up the legal fight Barry. He killed 3 people yet he still has rights.

Any American citizen more concerned about the torture of enemies rather than the beheading and torture of our own citizens is an idiot...of which McCain (who himself was tortured) is chief.

O'reilly McCain interview was not embarrassing. It was great. O'reilly simply forced McCain to address the questions asked. O'reilly was respectful, but persistent. I wish more political hacks would press the issue, and get the information requested from our government employees.

When are you gonna talk about Cletus Bob losing his job?

You know Cletus Bob, don't you?

OF COURSE you do!!!

Anyway, Cletus Bob lost his job at the TV repair shop because his employer found out he was posting too much on here during the workday...as Bacon.

See Boyhood immediately. It was the best movie I saw this year and it might be my favorite movie after a subsequent viewing.

Maybe Mrs. LL was more upset about the part that said 'if I ever kill her' than the 'pack rat' part of your statement.

Remember a while back when Liberal Democrats thought McCain was a doddering old fool who was too senile to be president? Now he's their new hero.

No, McCain is still not qualified to be president. He does, however, have very specific experience and knowledge when it comes to torture.

And of course, let's not forget that despite all of the Republicans wanting to save the US by torturing people, the overwhelming evidence, as McCain has been saying for years, is that torture is not an effective means for gathering information. And the specific report also shows that the CIA falsified the results to claim that is was effective, which we now know as false.

Yet people like Wordkyle are throwing out the same tired lines like "they're killing babies and you're talking about Jesus" or "you're soft on terrorism" that we heard to justify the war in Iraq--which we also know was improperly waged. They claim in hindsight, but those of us who saw it for the BS that it was even back in 2003 know better.


So let's recap:

1. Conservatives claim we should be torturing people;
2. It has been demonstrably proven that torture does not work, and in addition to that it dehumanizes people, including ourselves;
3. We all want to protect America;
4. In order to protect America, we should be using methods that work;
5. Did I mention that torture doesn't work?
6. So we should be using methods besides torture, in order to protect America, unless your goal is to torture for torturing's sake (which appears to be the case in some instances, based on the recent report of untrained, sexual predators being allowed to torture captives).

I don't have a problem with the bill reigning in the number of teams in the playoffs. If those who caused this issue (Texas school superintendents) won't fix it, then someone else needs to.

An 0-10 team made the playoffs this year. Numerous 2-8 teams did.

"A conservative Denton county jury"

What in your estimation labels them conservative?

Are you inferring that is a bad thing?

Does that affect the justice that person receives?

Are you inferring the award was too high or low?

"Not a bad idea but not exactly legislation worthy."

Amen to what 10:51AM said. Look, the legislature shouldn't have to micromanage high school sports, but if the interested parties won't address the problem themselves, then how do you fix it? This is how bad laws are made, but if the UIL would show some backbone, we wounldn't be here. Mkay?

wordkyle said...

Stupid, stupid, stupid Liberals. They make their argument "we should never use torture" and then would declare everything that makes an enemy uncomfortable is "torture," and so off limits.
Deny him a Koran? Torture.
Leave the lights on too late? Torture.
Put the radio on a station he doesn't like? Torture.
Serve Select beef instead of Choice? Torture.

Don't believe it? Look at how they've redefined "racism" or "rape" to mean anything they don't like.

The notion that "Republicans want to use torture" is beyond idiotic. But the option to discomfit an enemy to obtain information that may save innocent lives should not be removed because of a Liberal death wish.

I wouldn't mind Liberals being so stupid if their stupidity didn't endanger the rest of us.

Ha! Wordkyle thinks that the "information" gained during torturing someone is actually useful! All the while calling other people stupid.

Think of it like this, Kyle:

If someone perpetrated the ultimate torture on you, which would be: banning you from making comments on this blog, you would say anything to get them to stop. ANYTHING!

"Please, let me post comments on Liberally Lean, I'll tell you anythiiiiiiiiiing!!!! YOU'RE KILLING ME!!!!!!!!"

I love how one day you're dismissing anyone who "name calls," then you call liberals "stupid, stupid stupid."

"May save innocent lives"? You are so naive.

Re-defined rape to mean anything they don't like?
Clarify that statement, please. I would like an example.

Amen & amen Wordkyle. Unlike others on here (Rage), your common sense drives the liberals mad. Keep up the good work.

mzchief said...

Liberals are among the most screwed up bunch on cretins on Earth. They unilaterally, contrary to the statements made by the head of the CIA and CIA agents, declare "enhanced interrogation" techniques are worthless at gathering information from terrorists. Contrary to the determination made by the Department of Justice, Liberals have determined most all things that cause discomfort to a terrorist detainee to be torture. However, Liberals seemingly believe death by drone as the optimal method in dealing with suspected terrorists, in spite of the number of innocent civilians murdered along with the suspected terrorists. Has it never dawned on Liberals that a blown up terrorist has a 100% chance of NOT providing any information that would allow for further investigation/capture of terrorists?

In the Liberal mind, it's far more humane to just kill people than make them uncomfortable.

As for John McCain being held in some esteem as an authority on torture, due to his having been tortured 47yrs ago during his days as a POW is just foolish. The fact John McCain endured torture, at the hands of an enemy, doesn't make him an authority on torture, it just means he has a bias regarding torture, that few have, and he's incapable of being truly objective in his opinion regarding the "enhanced interrogation" techniques utilized in the United State's war against global terror. BTW. John McCain was protected by the Geneva Convention whereas terrorists are afforded no such protection.

Well, in all fairness, driving liberals mad isn't really one of my objectives.


Looks like MzChief either can't read anymore, or refuses to read the torture report. It clearly stated that torture was ineffective.

If it doesn't work, why do it? Why not do things that actually work, and keep our country safe? Why do something that makes more enemies, instead of finding them?

349,

You mean the democraps report on torture. So, the Californian Bitch Feinstein report is the honest truth for you?

All CIA directors since 9/11 agree that the EITs used on terrorists led to useful information.

So, you choose to believe a biased report, attempting to somehow indict the Bush admin, in order to fade heat from the Obama failures. That source is going to have more veracity for you, than the actual professionals familiar with the work.

If that is the case, you are a dumbass douche canoe. Check your values.

Skippy, You not knowing who Darnell Dockett is and why I ask about his resignation just goes to prove my point about someone that is black and most likely a democrat that posts pictures of the Obammy kids fat ass and then makes crude remarks about her on twitter,isn't newsworthy of the mainstream press, but a Republican staffer that makes comments about the daughters is vilified by the press and forced to resign. Even you made a comment about her having to resign. Your welcome.

The telepathics/empathics are among you. We know, we smile, we laugh, we feel, we cry. We are old soles with thousands of incarnations. We have killed, tortured, and have been tortured in our past lives. It takes time and experience of the good and the bad to know what is right and wrong. We all eventually become old soles after experiencing all of life's good and bad. You have heard this before: It is the journey not the destination. The journey is to experience, to learn, to evolve spiritually. Destination unknown, but for the good.

Makes sense to chastise the defense in that JP case.

They spent ZERO time actually defending their client, and now are merely stalling in the punishment phase. What the heck are they thinking?
