Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • At least sixty-three dead in an earthquake near Rome, Italy this morning. My vision of Italy makes me think that place isn't exactly earthquake-proof. I guess I'm right.
  • Kids are heading back to school in new middle and high schools in West, Texas. I don't think I ever mentioned what a ruse it was for the ATF to announce the explosion was due to arson but they didn't know who did it. Say what? They did, however, stress how extensive their investigation was (400 interviews!) and how much work they put into it. That is nothing more than job justification. With no "suspect", no one will ever question the arson conclusion and the ATF boys can go around touting about how they were so good they could even determine it was arson from the rubble.
  • Trump is backtracking like no one's business on his deport-them-all stance.  But I doubt it will help him or hurt him.
  • I think the only Texas politicians willing to appear with Trump yesterday were Rick Perry and Dan Patrick. Hey, "speaks volumes" guy: That speaks volumes.
  • The great 538.com this morning puts Hillary's chances of winning at 85.4%.
  • Today: "UT sex-toy protest against campus carry could be largest anti-gun rally in Texas history."  Ok, this will be interesting. I'm just waiting for some one to point out that the, uh, devices aren't even made in America. They were made in Singapore. 
  • "Texas police say it was a late-night realtor rendezvous which landed a real estate agent behind bars." I think I feel sorry for these two (and it was perfect time for the cops to simply say, "Get outta here.") Plus, how can you not support a guy in a vintage 1970s Boston concert shirt? 
  • And if you ever need proof that book-in photos don't do you justice, look what I found in a another story about the couple. Hey, now:
  • Hey Dennis Prager fan: I blew by his program the other day and guess who he was promoting for a new video on his very questionable Prager University: Yakov Smirnoff. Let the modern day relevance sink in. 
  • The Affluenza Teen's Mom is now working as a bartender at Honky Tonk Woman in Azle. 
  • Great Britain thought it would be a good idea to have matching luggage for their Olympic squads. (Mrs. LL makes sure we have a four inch strip of crazily designed duct tape somewhere on our luggage so we can always spot it.)
  • "Bridgeport City Council voted Monday to decrease the speed limit from 30 to 25 mph along Halsell."  Halsell is the town's equivalent of Main Street. At least I won't have to read offense reports that justify a late night stop for a "wide right turn". Now it will be speeding.

Barry still thinks that Prager University is some kind of online degree program.

The cops couldn't say "get out of here" because the new home owners pressed charges.

As usual you want to place police in bad light. If the woman would have said it's my listing and we felt like getting freaky, police would have probably let them off the hook. Instead they proceeded to lie through their teeth, and as a bonus they were in possession of marijuana. At that point what's the police to do? nothing? nonfeasance will get you fired or worse, indicted.

Bridgeport City Council does everything they can to make that street non-driver friendly. It's like they are actively trying to keep people away from Downtown. It's insane. First they put in more Stop signs. Then they screwed up the traffic pattern. Now they are lowering the speed limit. Why don't they just put up a barricade and make a permanent detour?

And you'll be making pleas faster than ever, and declaring victory because, instead of them having jail time, you got them 18 months of probation and 60 hours of community service and a fine.
And I guess you'll be right.

Seems to me, BG, that anything which brings in more DWI arrests for you to defend helps pay for that kayak-fishing beach house, and also makes your family just a little safer.

I'm not running down what you do; our arrestees need a vigorous defense. But do me a favor, counselor, and cut your local cops a little bit of a break, for trying to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road. You're not on the clock, here. You're a citizen of this community, too.

Please know that my vote was not bought, and I'm not voting for Trump. In fact, I'm voting against Trump and Hillary.

I personally think that a lot of conservative males hate the concept of LBGT because deep down they are concerned that maybe they're a little bit gay. I would encourage you to test these waters and find out. For example, go watch Brokeback Mountain and see what happens. If nothing, then you can stop being angry at everything and know that it's not contagious. If by chance you find yourself aroused, then your options are to embrace it, or continue to suppress these urges and possibly begin your serial killer career - its a popular choice.

I often think of the angry marine dad on American Beauty who ultimately kisses Frank Underwood, and then shoots him when he is rebuffed. Spoiler alert.

In summary - I think 11:51 might be homosexual. Nothing wrong with that, just saying.

Everyone knows Clinton is a liar, has played fast and loose with classified docs and has peddled influence while Secretary of State. The sad thing is, none of the people supporting her care. Crooked/self-serving politicians have been the norm, since the dawn of politics and hasn't really harmed society. However, society accepting and rewarding politicians for being crooked IS HARMFUL to society.

I really don't fault Democrat voters for having Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee, they had the choice between a Socialist and Hillary. Democrat voters had to nominate Hillary. However, only having those two choices shows how broken the Democrat party is, as a whole.

The Republicans are all types of screwed up. Out of 18 candidates, 5 of whom were capable of beating Hillary and well suited to become POTUS, Trump is who Repubs nominated. If for no other reason than that, Independents need to vote Libertarian and get away from the 'tard party.

The choice for POTUS is between Evil Clinton and Crazy Trump. The problem with Evil Clinton, she'll be able to accomplish the social engineering she seeks, forever changing the US. Trump's malarkey is too crazy and mostly unconstitutional thus will never happen. That being the case, Crazy is better for the US than Evil.

IF you live in a state where the election, for POTUS, is a forgone conclusion vote for Gary Johnson. Voting for Johnson will give rise to a legitimate third party. Having a third party will force Dems and Repubs to mend their ways and court the 20ish percent who are inclined to vote Libertarian.

as for the RTG...She may be the absolute very best ever posted on Liberally Lean...and I'm not a fan of blondes.

12:54 Bravo, spoken like a true Libtard.

Albeit lacking in context to the current conversation, just needed to shove a little more gay down everyone's throat?
I suppose that's just CLASSIC democrat to "define" someone with an opposing view
in other words, if I'm not like you I must be a serial killer.

I don't need too define your character you already did, and it's sad.
However, you had one point I'll agree with - nothing wrong with being homosexual. JUST KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.
I've always believed that LGBT never wanted equality like they said, they just want to be celebrated for being what they are. Too that end I say, "don't we all"
Try to keep up we're all pulling for you here.....

Q: If a DWI defendant is acquitted, for reasons unrelated to his attorney's actions, does the attorney still get to deposit the defendant's check?

You could be right, BSG. Or, you could just be groping.

11:17, I agree completely. I had a crack in the radiator on my 1998 F-150 and Johnson/Weld 2016 fixed it right up. I use it around the house to repair hinges, door latches, drawer catches, fans, the list is endless. And extremely inexpensive per application. Yes, Johnson/Weld 2016 is truly a fix-all. Wait, you say it's really JBWeld, not Johnson/Weld 2016? Well......never mind.

Hillary Clinton. The most interesting woman in the world. People pay her just to hear her speak. She once had an awkward moment just to see what it was like. If you have to ask how much one of her used pant suits cost, you can't afford it. Even her enemies have her listed as their emergency contact. When she makes her get away, she walks through the front door. During a Mexican standoff, she sits comfortably. She is the most interesting woman in the world.

Not that it matters; he has no chance of winning. Since he has no chance of winning, and he is, in fact, what we academics like to refer to as an "ass clown," let us instead vote for the guy who doesn't want to put MORE government in your life, and who also is not Hillary R. Clin-Ton.

You have so much in common with the liberal Democrats, it's not even funny, anymore.

I am a conservative independent. I don't back Trump. Neither did I do any name calling, which is a liberal ploy when unable to argue intelligently, just like what Trump did when he called Clin-ton a bigot.

And once again, you're labeling me based on your own perception, yet infer I have so much in common with liberal Democrats, which I destest. Yes, you may want to look in the mirror as you hurl your opinions at other, because no one is right all the time.

3:05 - hey buddy, relax a little bit. If you can't see the humor in my post, then again, you may want to do a little introspection. Regarding the context, you are the one that brought up sexuality, and how you feel it is shoved down your throat (interesting choice of words) - so I felt I would opine on why you may feel threatened or bothered by such things. My analysis may not apply in your specific case, but you do seem to be a little bothered by the topic.

Regarding character, it is my opinion that anyone who continually labels people as "libtards" or "democraps" has the character issue. It is common practice to use insulting language to dehumanize people. It allows you to maintain your bubble, without being aware of your lack of compassion. I did not see where you offered any opposing view, and I did not attempt to "define" you. I merely offered a hypothesis to your apparent fascination with LBGT. I don't really ever notice it, because it doesn't bother me. They don't reproduce, which is great - less people in line, less over population, and fewer dumbasses out there.

Lastly, go to school and learn some punctuation, learn the ability to express yourself without "ALL CAPS," and the difference between "to" and "too." Then, people might start to take your opinions more seriously. Until that happens, you are relegated back to the kid's table, where you can listen to the adults and keep your mouth shut.

Good talk.
