The Campaign For DA

5.02.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • It's still Mrs. LL blogging.
  • The 7th Grader in the House won State! Ok, maybe she had a little help from a few other girls. She even played with an eye injury. She got kicked in the eyeball accidentally by her bff during their "recess" time the day before. It looks pretty gross. I almost tweeted a picture. 
  • I will lock on to college softball game if I see one on tv. In a heartbeat.  
  • I understand The Cowboys drafted a Baylor basketball player. Yes, basketball. Who does Jerry Jones thinks he is, Jack Lengyel? I'll need The Self Proclaimed Sports Expert to explain that one to me.
  • I saw that Blackie Sherrod died. He was actually the inspiration for Mr. LL's Skattershooting that he wrote while DA. I never understood why he used a "k" instead of a "c". 
  • Ok, even I am stunned by Trump. How has this even been possible? Seriously. 
  • Shocking six dead in Palestine flash flooding. Sheesh.
  • I went for a walk in an Arlington Park (to look for a geocache) and saw an actual beaver swimming around. Two minutes later an armadillo crossed within five feet of me on the sidewalk. 
  • This month, the number of Texas residents that have a CHL will top 1 million. One million. 
  • This week we make final preparations for The Dreaded Prom. It's only dreaded because it's the same day The Senior In The House turns into an adult. I'm not the crier in the house, but I've done more than my fair share this year with all the "Last. ____". 
  • I can report from the Traveling Liberally Lean Gangster Automobile that traffic on I35 between DFW and Austin really sucks. Sucks, bad. Is the concept of "left lane passing only" such a hard thing to grasp? 
  • I'm told that there is not a single natural gas well working the Barnett Shale. Not one. Is that true?
  • Wise County Animal Shelters gets all sorts:


  • RTG: 1.) I cheated. She's a repeat. 2.) Don't expect that gender daily. 3.) Cute Animal. 4.) Hot guy.

I have gone to the WCWS (Womens College World Series) for 10 years. Great game, great venue in OKC and one of the few things left that is reasonably priced.

Travelling to Austin is the WORST! It took us 5.5 hours last Friday afternoon. Talk about a beating! We actually cut our stay short on Sunday and came home early in the morning to beat the traffic. Only took 3 hours. We swore we'd just fly next time.

Mrs. LL: So disappointed on the half naked woman on here today! I thought we had moved passed all that!

You wrote something on here that I have said repeatedly only not near as nicely as you...
"I can report from the Traveling Liberally Lean Gangster Automobile that traffic on I35 between DFW and Austin really sucks. Sucks, bad. Is the concept of "left lane passing only" such a hard thing to grasp?"

It is THE LAW and idiots just don't get it! I nearly have a stroke every time I get on a highway of any sort. Even 380! Talk about justified road rage!!! I nearly have a stroke from folks that have never understood this concept and can't simply move to the right lane! Or Trucks! Trucks are horrible about it on 380! I would almost rather Traffic Law Enforcement write tickets for this more so than speeding! Put up more road signs that read "Dumb$%*&, if you aren't passing, move to the right lane before someone kicks your @$$!"

Trump's popularity and record CHL applications is an obvious indication that many in this country have had enough of the current POTUS' anti-American and anti-white policies and do not wish to see our country become a quasi-European bastion of liberalism and cowardice. Hopefully, that clarifies your confusion somewhat.

Now that's a blog entry...getting better by the day. Congrats on the state championship. Side note-Why do a lot of select teams refer to the championship as the "Ship"? Just say the whole word.

If there are 1 mill CHL holders, think of how many more are strapped to peoples belts and riding around in vehicles that don't have the license. Surely all the thugites have their CHL's also?

not gonna lie, when I saw the RTG I immediately thought welcome back BG.

I can't speak for everyone else, but voting for Trump is my middle finger to the rest of the "establishment". I've come to the conclusion that I've been sold a bill of goods by the Republican Party and to hell with them.

Politicians and people in power will always seek to retain that power. They don't care which party is next to their name a la Rick Perry.

And you know what, I thought the world was going to end in 08, it didn't. Everyone losing their minds over Trump, the world won't end. If the devil incarnate wins (Shillary), the world won't end then either. It'll just be another 4 years of business as usual.

One million CHL/Open Carry license holders and the streets aren't running red with the blood of the innocent.

the concept of left lane being the express lane is now gone. Women in SUV's, drivers of hispanic origin, and seasoned citizens just view it as another lane.

Wells are working...

RIGS are not.

There is only 1 rig on a pad in the Barnett Shale, and it is hot stacked, waiting on the next pad to be built.

My family's still getting royalties from some wells that were "tapped into" the Barnett Shale, but they've been reduced a lot lately. Existing wells may still be producing, but maybe the news is that they're not drilling any new wells.

The old Cowboy regime also drafted NBA player, coach and executive Pat Riley. The Cowboys never signed him obviously.

Has a college football player ever made it in the NBA? That I do not know.

Wake up Mrs. LL; we need TRUMP to fix Washington. Obama has made a mess of things & the US is the laughing stock to other countries.

I know you're confused about Trump's popularity, but on the other side, consider how a lying, self-serving, murderous traitor can capture the Democrat nomination.

Texans drive in the left lane. That's what they do, the dumbasses.

"I'm told that there is not a single natural gas well working the Barnett Shale. Not one. Is that true? "

I think you mean Drilling Rig. Not "natural gas well". A drilling rig is what drills holes in the ground, that we call "Wells". A workover rig comes back in to work on wells that are already drilled. That's very simplified but you get the gist.

Last week there were 6 oil rigs and 0 gas rigs listed on the Baker Hughes Rig count.

DF raised on rigs

Drivers in the left lane on US380 aren't that big a deal, because there's not much traffic. Plus it's not a controlled access road; lots of left turn exits. But that doesn't explain somebody driving for ten miles in the left lane!
I think a lot of folks drive the left lane because it's easier than changing lanes back and forth. They don't really care what the effect is on the rest of us. Simple lack of awareness. And it's not just the groups mentioned by 9:26. It cuts across all demographics

You're worried about what Trump says, but ignore your own side's fascist actions. How come there's not a national outcry about the violence committed by the Left? Rioters have violently attacked Trump supporters, they've attacked police officers and even police cars, fer peetsake. This isn't single nutjobs, but hundreds and thousands acting like animals, doing their best to stifle opposition. How do you folks on the Left condone such insanity? In what universe do you let such behavior on your side pass by, not just uncriticized, but not even discussed?

Not true. I know of two wells that are working.

I think much of the left lane problem is people who drive with the damn cruise control instead of the skinny pedal on the right. Just mash it and get out of the way!

This may be why Trump is getting the votes. He is not my first choice but Cruz is not qualified because:

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.” Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 168.

Here is a list of a few children of British subjects born outside of Britain around the time of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. They had to be naturalized and hence definitely were not considered Natural Born under common law.

In 1745 Dorothy Penton, born in Lisbon, daughter of Christian
Symonds and Anne, his wife

In 1777 Francis Popham, born in France, son of Francis Popham
and Martha Clarke

In 1792 Richard Walker, born in Bengal, James Mainwaring (age 4), born in France before his parents’ marriage, son of James Mainwaring of Cheshire
and Anne Marie Mainwaring, born in Switzerland

In 1796 Robert (age 18), John (age 17), and Mary (age 15), Howard, born in India, requested by the Rev. Nicholas Isaac Hill of Middlesex, their guardian

Re: Ok, even I am stunned by Trump. How has this even been possible? Seriously.

*This month, the number of Texas residents that have a CHL will top 1 million. One million. How MANY nationwide?
*Hillary and Bernie offer socialism and criminal actions as their party representatives.
*Cruz picked FIORINA???? Whatever hope he had, he blew right there!
*Christian conservatives are not settling for any of the above.

The only way I would NOT vote for Trump is if he picks Sarah Palin for his running mate. Please, Donald, don't be that stupid! I'd like to see a Trump/Kasich, /Rubio, or /Carson ticket.

Never to be unkind Mrs. LL, but Mr. Trump will never be as puzzling as Hillary Clinton even being considered for public office. The string of death caused by her incompetence and living above the law is more than amazing!

That left lane thing would work a lot better if it weren't for Mexicans and cell phones. Trump probly can'tdo anythingabout the phones.

RE: DFW to Austin drive

Take highway 281. Yes, the drive is longer but you will make much better time.

Lots of folks use left lane on 380 because rock trucks stack up so close together in right lane. If you like your windshield, you can't stay behind them, can't get between them, gotta go around them.

Basic oilfield trash vocabulary you ought to know. We pay a lot of bills here in Wise County. Don't be uppity!
Rigs: used to make holes in ground. Deep holes. Hence: drilling rigs, but only called that by furriners.
Wells: the holes made in the ground by rigs, topped frequently by some kind of pump...maybe a pumpjack. Sometimes topped by a Christmas tree that can be used to control the flow of product from the hole in the ground made by the rig.

Majestic folks...huh? What have they done to Decatur ISD? Really. I don't have a clue who they are or what they own.

Wells can pump a LONG time. Some in the East Texas field are still active today (since the 1930s).

Speaking of scatter shooting, I see on 2/28/05 Barry made this statement. " Hillary Clinton cannot be elected President. It would be the dumbest thing the democrates could do and they do a lot of dumb things" I wonder if Barry still feels that same way.

Anonymous said...

I'm not a racist but I have to concur about hispanics and driving in the left lane. Rock trucks in the left lane blocking traffic were never a big problem until the majority of driving jobs were taken by hispanics. It's something about their culture I guess.

FWIW, Left lane is for passing. Once you make your pass you are to move back to the right lane.

Next time take 281...much easier drive than 35 and very little traffik.
