The Campaign For DA

10.19.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts





  • Did I see a Decatur police car decorated in pink? Who paid for that? 
  • Last year I made fun of the crooked pink line on the courthouse square. This is what I wrote: "Regarding the crooked Pink Stripe on the Decatur Square that I mentioned yesterday, I got called out by email: 'The line is painted, not by a machine, but by the hands of women in our community, each taking a turn and is an emotional and empowering opportunity for each of them. I have attached a picture so that you can see the faces of the women we celebrate: the moms, aunts, grandmas and friends, for enduring such a difficult time.'"  Not that it matters, but the line is perfectly straight this year. And when I'm stupid, I'll admit to being stupid.
  • The last play of Michigan State/Michigan may be the greatest ending in college football history.  I bet I've replayed that twenty times. 
  • I came downstairs on Saturday and saw Mrs. LL. watching Sex Tape. (Ok, everyone tap the brakes  -- it's not what you think.). It's a comedy released in 2014 starring "Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz, Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper, and Rob Lowe." Verdict: Huge thumbs up because that was a cleverly written script. Whenever you have to hit the pause button because you think you just got hit with a genius yet subtle line but the characters keep moving, it's good stuff. 
  • Mrs. LL and I went through my "home office" yesterday which has now turned into the biggest storage room in the history of ever. (I think we might have lost a dog in there.) We both came across scrapbooks and mementos from over ten years ago. I found a  20 year old letter from a high school friend who, upon reflection, seemed to be crying out for help but wouldn't come out and say it. I didn't realize it back then. Buried in it was "write me back." I didn't. And I never heard from him again. I walked out the room and said, "I'm such a [jerk.]"
  • How in the world can Prestonwood Baptist Church hold a presidential forum and keep its tax exempt status? 
  • Advil Cold and Sinus is like a miracle drug for me. 
  • I am seriously considering doing something I never thought I would do again. And it would require an official announcement. If I do it, I'll tell you this week -- right here. You know how I always use the phrase of "it's the equivalent of Walter White of Breaking Bad with a machine gun"? That means there's a guy going back to make things right -- and he has nothing to lose.

Prestonwood invited all candidates D and R and it was not a fundraiser.

My bet is the announcement is for Barry going to say he's doing another Half Marathon!

How does Hillar-flea continue to change her accent to be alarmingly Southern in front of Southern audiences, particularly in front of African-American audiences, to the extent that pundits are calling it her "black-cent" and accusing her of patronizing her audience.

Well.........David Walker is unexpectedly retiring..so........are you running for an office.....getting back into the business???

How can the church keep it's tax exempt status? The same way all the southern black churches keep theirs when the democrats come a calling offering up more freebies and talking in that southern drawl ebonic language.

Why have you still not said ANYTHING about Sheriff Walker's retirement/going into the private sector a full year before his term ends? No well wishes, no snide remarks. Makes me think there is more than meets the eye on this one. Have you been retained in connection with this???

That Michigan / Michigan St game can only go down as a tie for the greatest ending in 2015....the Texas / Oklahoma St game has something to say about that.

I think tax exemptions for all churches is a load of crap. Church leader at X church makes lots of money, guy directly below him sees that and wants some of the action. Decides to start church Y to make his own fortune. That's why there are so many "New" churches popping up everywhere. It's all money driven! And anyone that denies it is a fool.

Prestonwood Baptist Church should hold its tax exempt status since "black churches" for years have let democratic candidates "preach at their regular services....not to mention the rainbow coalition keeping its tax exempt status even after Unrevernend Jesse Jackson paid off his mistress (who had his baby out of wedlock) with funds that were give as a donation to that corrupt entity. Any more questions, counselor?

You're running for President, right??

Prestonwood did not endorse a specific candidate or party.

Donate your money to Mary's Gift at Wise Health System Foundation. ALL proceeds go to underserved women in our community, providing mammograms, biopsies, etc.

Much better than paying for a CEO of another "pink" organization.

2:37 - Barry does not chase ambulances. He fights to free wicked people so that they can victimize more people.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

All churches of any flavor who preach ANY politics from their organization via any method need to be taxed.

And get over this being a republican vs democrat thing. Sheesh.

I have always felt that any church that doesn't put at least 80% of its collection into true charity (food bank, homeless shelter, abused spouses, abused children, mission work, aged assistance, soup kitchen, etc) should have its IRS tax exemption stripped. Charity does NOT include buying a new business jet, building the minister a three story mansion, paying a court judgement for molested choir boys, or taking a two week "mission trip" to a high dollar resort in Tahiti. If you can't pay for church maintenance, construction/expansion, preacher salary, overhead out of 20%, you are in the religion business for the wrong reasons. Are you listening Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, and John Hagee?

@10:51 - Something in your past church experience still bothers you? Obviously not concerned about facts. And your liberalism is showing as well. You stated your case and then decided you could end all discussion by making everyone a fool that disagrees!

Possibilities:

1. Come out as gay;
2. Convert to Republican (and support Donald "Crazy-Ass" Trump);
3. Decide there will be no more RTGs ever again;
4. Denounce football as the stupid, body&mind maiming activity that it really is;
5. Change the website's bannerhead (or at least retire the Spandex guy);
6. Move to Utah's desert or some backwoods place where there is no football;

I'm guessin'.
