Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Mrs. LL helped the Tarrant County Water Board out by returning a lost buoy via a kayak yesterday. Trust me, we care more about that taxpayer piece of expensive property (it has a great light on it) then they do. No one working on a salary that you are paying for checks on those things at Lake Bridgeport, and it had been up on our shore all Winter. (Side note: She used a cable and duct tape.)
  • The sign on that monstrosity says it's a violation of the law to get within so many feet of it. I dare you to prosecute her. That war would be the biggest blog entertainment in years. 
  • I feel confident in saying that if you have a Yeti sticker on your truck that we have absolutely nothing in common. And my friends would crush you in Jeopardy.  I may not, but my friends would.
  • This morning Trump let us know he doesn't like his approval ratings. If you voted for him, you own him. 
  •  Maybe the greatest MLK Day political cartoon ever: 
  • We've got us a modern day Junction Boys
  • The Lady Bears (maybe their best team ever) beat Kansas by 49 points on Sunday. And Baylor was called for traveling with 0.2 left on the clock as both teams were walking off the court. Too many rule enforcers?
  • So the Cowboys are set for the next 10 years with Dak? Ask the Redskins after RG3's first season. The Titans after Vince Young's first. The 49ers after Kaepernick's rookie year.
  • I'm impressed with the private rocket launch of Space X which put ten satellites into orbit.
  • There is nothing weirder than Mrs. LL getting all giddy when she sees a running back or receiver using the spin move. 
  • Anyone else think that salaries for school administrators have gotten so out of hand that it is mind blowing that Decatur pays their's  $199,500?
  • Jason Garrett F Bomb from yesterday.
  • And does anyone think these headlines are a little dramatically written by the Star-Telegram this morning?
  • So we let those under 21 go to the Middle East to fight, get screwed up royally with PTSD, let the VA go to hell in a hand basket, and then don't give a crap about them once they come back. But we aren't going to let an 18 year old in Texas make his own decision as to whether he wishes to smoke? . . .

I never would have believed that people would pay 5 times as much for a cooler with no tangible benefit.

I am trying to come up with another product that I can market the same way, but I don't think that I'm dumb enough.

GREEN YOU ARE SPOT ON ABOUT THOSE DAMN YETI STICKERS. IF A GROWN ASS MAN IS GONNA PAY 3, 4, 500 DOLLARS FOR AN ICE COOLER THEN HE IS A COMPLETE DUMB SHIT. CUE THE NIMRODS WHO WANT TO SAY HOW GOOD THEY ARE AND HOW LONG THEY KEEP ICE. IDOCRACY.

BUT GREEN DON'T LET THE TEDDY BEAR STUFF GET YOUR HOPES UP. YOUR STILL A DUMB ASS TOO.

I 100% agree with the Dak note. I felt like the Cowboys had the wrong QB playing all season long. They are putting all their eggs in one basket and it is base on 1 data point(1 season)or a half of a data point.

They should have given the experience QB a shot half way through the season........experience wins the majority of the time(base on stats). Just look at the QB's still in. (i.e. Brady, Roethlisberger, Ryan, Rodgers) Out- (Prescott, Moore, Osweiler)

Space X is impressive. They've been fortunate to have a head start over others, what with all that NASA has done and researched for them, but they're going to do great. I'm especially impressed with their retrieval of rockets by landing them vertically on platforms in the ocean. That's some next level stuff. I think we're witnessing the first of the "corporations" that are mentioned in movies like Alien, Total Recall, or Avatar. It's always a space-exploration company that runs things, not the government.

Dak was far different in his first year than those other QB's. I'm glad they're done with Romo. I've been wanting them to get rid of him for years. Hell, bringing back Testaverde would have been a better option.

SpanishWarDonkey said...

The difference in Dak and the three others you mentioned is a) he isn't, or rather, doesn't play like a duel-threat QB (look at Russell Wilson, who won the Super Bowl in his 2nd season) and b) doesn't appear to be a head case and seems like a pretty grounded young man, again, similar to Russell Wilson.

Have school administrator salaries gotten crazy? Yes. They should be set by Texas Statute to be no more than a maximum of three times the highest paid teacher (coaches salaries not counted). And coaches should be capped at 1.5 times the highest salary for a regular teacher (if they are really special AND their kids finish school). Roll the rest of the money into the lower scale salaries.

Rhabdo is nothing to mess around with. The Strength/Conditioning Coach and Head Coach should be sacked immediately and the players affected by the ailment have their scholarships converted to non-competition guaranteed tuition/fees/books/dorm money immediately. Kidney damage may not show up for years in tests, but it is there. The body is amazing, but people can do some incredibly stupid things to it.

You're making a false assumption comparing Prescott to RGIII and Vince Young. They were fantastic college QBs who were supposed to be the next big thing - the dual threat hybrid QB. But NFL defenses make it difficult on the body type required to run and pass effectively.
Dak is more of a traditional QB, in the mold of his predecessor Romo. He's a passer who is mobile and can run when necessary. Romo is older, beaten up, and no longer mobile. He may have some life left in a system that is pass oriented. The Cowboys ain't it.
The combination of Dak and a solid running back behind a great O-line is the reason for long range optimism.

I don't own a Yeti product, just a few knock-offs. However, I am tempted to slap a sticker on my truck just for the chance to challenge your friends (and you) to a Jeopardy tournament. You would have to be a friend of Ken Jennings for any crushing to occur. I go way back to the Art Fleming/Don Pardo days. I may not win, but it would be close.

I know that may seem expensive for a superintendent of schools but $199,000 is comparable to superintendent salaries across the state. You may think that may seem expensive but they are the CEO of an entire school district.

Anonymous said...

You start demonizing school administrators because of their salary and you are going to start having the same problem with that profession that you do with teachers. I remember when people bitched about the salary of teachers and how they get 1/2 the year off, paid too much, blah, blah, blah...
Now no one wants to go into the teaching profession anymore.

School superintendent is a 7 day, 12 hour day job. They have to oversee the district, deal with entitled parents/students, work with school board members (some are nuttier than squirrel shit), work with area elected officials to make sure they don't slash more state public education budgets, attend school sporting events, etc...

Long story short, don't underappreciate your local school superintendent. They do more than you think.

This nugget from BG is proof that the liberal elite mindset is alive and well. This is why Trump was elected numb nuts. Keep it up.

Townsend loves to spend, spend, spend. DHS reserve funds down from $11 million to less than $3 million since he came. He definitely has the board in his pocket, they are just "yes" lap dogs to everything he says. Not worth that much or a raise or extension of contract. And they don't work very hard. Don't believe his comments above.

I loved the story in the paper about all the sup's getting all riled up about that new grading system by the state to rank and grade districts and campuses. Had to have a special meeting with Phil King. Oh poor babies, got their feelings hurt. I guess they don't like being held accountable for the horrible education system we have.

Vince Young and RG3 are not the same style of QB as Dak. They were both successful in the NCAA because they can run. In the NFL, everyone is fast.
They could learn to not run but they have a bigger problem, each of them have a throwing motion that is too long. They whip the ball. That will not work. Dak has a more traditional motion which produces a much quicker release. That is the style that works in the NFL.

199 IS ON TOP OF THE $6K A MONTH CAR ALLOWANCE AND OTHER MONTHLY STIPENDS. ONCE YOU ADD ALL THOSE BENEFITS IT WOULD BE CLOSER TO 300K A YEAR. FOR AN EMPTY GOLF SHIRT THAT HAS DONE ZERO FOR OUR DISTRICT EXCEPT DRAIN THE RESERVES.

Make no mistake, the Trump Presidency is a second American revolution and it will deeply affect the operations of the international secret rogue government. Russian intelligence operatives contacted the WDS [White Dragon Society] last week to seek reassurance the Trump presidency will be allowed to go ahead. They were told by the WDS that Trump was not going to be another assassinated leader like Kennedy because, unlike Kennedy, Trump has the backing of the US military. Here is what Pentagon Sources had to say about the matter: “A CIA plot to whack Trump is unlikely since the military has read them the riot act. There are no Geneva conventions for domestic enemies of the state and military justice is swift and lethal.”-- Benjamin Fulford
