The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • We are hurling towards Idiocracy, and I admit that I might be a part of it. (See above photo.)
  • Yesterday we had a car explosion in Plano because of someone sniffing something and now we have the news that "Dry ice likely why Plano woman passed out" in her car.  
  • Don't go to Plano?
  • Actual headline of Fox 4 this morning at the bottom of the screen: "Crime Spree Stopped By Man With Pumpkin Carving Knife."
  • On the radio this morning I heard a reference to a Disney "record" of scary music for Halloween. I think I actually had that record as a child. 
  • I turned on Fox News last night and Bill O'Reilly and Barney Frank were screaming at each other. I actually turned it off. I was not entertained. 
  • If something is wrong with my gMail account there is a message off to the side that says, "Something is not right." 
  • Vehicles You Fear On The Road Ranking: (1) The double tractor trailer -- I saw a Fed Ex double trailer wrecked out in the median on our way to Abilene this morning, (2) The truck hauling cars - I always think one will fall off. 
  • I told Mrs. LL this weekend that Grace Kelly is the most gorgeous woman in the history of ever. And then after a frantic pause I told her, "After you." And to think I gave marriage advice. 
  • Speaking of, the Family House had the Internet go out but not the TV Internet feed for the first time ever. I went home to meet the tech guy yesterday who showed up (amazingly) in the window of time. I explained the problem, he does some tech stuff, and then looks at me and says, "This situation is weird. Let me hang around for five to ten minutes to check it out." Ummkay. 
  • And now, for the first time ever, the audio on the TV does not work. I was looking at this morning and had to go to closed caption. What's the saying? That silence can be deafening? I laughed when Simon and Garfunkle's Sound of Silence began to replay in my head -- which has the crazy/brilliant lyrics of, "Hello darkness my old friend."

Can't wait for Wordkyle to come in today and call other people trolls again. That always sets off my BS-meter.

RTG - me thinks i am seeing stars, ahem, and then some!

Another vehicle to fear is the"Wide Load" truck hauling half a house, with plastic covering the open side of the house. Also, never have been a fan of the mega long trailer hauling the wind turbine blades either.

(people in) Vehicles You Fear On The Road:
1. The idiot who is texting or otherwise fiddling with their phone while driving in the left lane @ 10mph less than the speed limit. Or blindly riding your bumper as their reference point
2. Rock haulers. You're one faulty latch away from an avalanche of gravel, like Biff and his friends getting covered in manure in Back to the Future . Plus, a lot of those drivers have a little trouble staying in their lanes

The RTG pic connection to Idiocracy is in need of some explanation. Although some of the comments to follow may do the 'splainin' for ya. And speaking of RTGs, where are the usual slutty Halloween costumes? Time is running out! (Those pics would help make the connection)

Is a hand around a reach around in lawyer speak?

Vehicle You Fear On The Road...

Rock haulers hold the #1 spot for me. They are consistently the worst. Many exceed the speed limit, throw loose gravel, spray dirty water all over your car and windshield (if you happen to get behind them after a "rinse"), pull out of side roads into traffic, and frequently lose tire tread and have blowouts.

Yeah, the king of trolls calling folks out and accusing everyone of being Rage. Like there is only one guy out there that disagrees with his extreme far right evangelical ideology. I guess Elohim City keeps his worldview fairly narrow!

9:45 There is not such thing as a reach around in lawyer speak, your just hoping for a little lube!

My daughter was involved in a car accident; she was a passenger in a car that was hit by a drunk driver. She is in the hospital...thank God no brain damage just broken bones. That driver is going to need counsel. Let me know I will pass the information along. Maybe you can get him off.

There is nothing wrong with Plano.

I am constantly amused at my being the uppermost thought in some people's minds. How challenging it must be for them just to get through the day.

#1 vehicle to fear for me: any truck carrying lumber. I can't ride behind them, for fear that they'll lose a 2x4 and it will come through my windshield and impale me.

Nothing says "I'm a trashy whore" like star tattoos. They usually put them on their wrist. On the abdomen is just ramping it up by a factor of 10.

Vehicles I fear on the road.

Any car being driven by a kid in high school.

Any car being driven by a female college student.

Any car that goes down the highway a little sideways.

Any car being towed behind another car or truck.(especially if using a rope)

Any pickup being driven by people that are relocating.

Any landscaping trailer containing stones or brick.

Cement trucks.

1974 Ford Pintos.

Any vehicle that has the word RHOME on it. (same for Newark)

Any pickup with a household appliance riding in the back.

Any vehicle covered with sod.(Actually saw this on I 35 E in Lewisville)

Any car where the driver has their cell phone mounted on the steering wheel.

Any car where the driver has a book/newspaper/map covering the steering wheel.

Any car using a trash bag and duct tape to replace a window, especially the back window.

Any vehicle where one side is obviously higher or lower than the other side.

Hell, I guess I'll just have to walk.

The car hauler is probably the safest load you could be behind. The drivers are personally financially responsible for any damage to them. Better believe they tie them down real good.

10:36: if she's a big fan, then it's probably a good thing that she got the star tats instead of goal posts.

Wordy has to wait until FOX or Breitbart tells him what to think. He isn't smart enough to be Rage.

Aw cmon green you don't fear any of those drunk drivers that you help keep on the road?

Oh yes Barry, you are definately part of the idiocracy...in all fairness though...we are all watching the devolving of our species. For instance why would anyone hold any conversation with an absolute idiot like Barney Frank, let alone expend the energy to raise your voice? That make you an oxygen thief like Barney.

I'm afraid of a guy driving down the road getting a bj from some crazy chick not wearing a seatbelt!

I fear the person watching me get a bj instead of keeping their eyes on the road.

Re bullet point #1---

Surely you meant hurtling? Hurling is something altogether different.

I think you're the most poorly educated lawyer I've ever known. Remind me not to send my kids to Baylor

I could stand to see a bit more of that Diana Zoga chick on Fox.
Golly, she's pretty.
