Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • I walked out of the bathroom this morning ready to go to work, Mrs. LL was in bed, she's on her phone, and she's looking at Deadspin. I've created a monster.
  • The Eighth Grader in House thinks I'm crazy because, as I was dropping her off for school, I was laughing out loud at The Ticket talking about how it would be a great idea for Major League Baseball to put a cow in the outfield to trick it up. 
  • The 9th Circuit, as everyone with a brain could predict, overturned Trump's Muslim Ban.
  • Let's check in on the Toddler-In-Chief. Buddy, you lose every time in court. (And he went ALL CAPS. You never go ALL CAPS.)
  • Oh, and he's after the New York Times again this morning. #YouOwnHim 
  • My goal for him remains the same: Don't get all of us killed and I'm good. 
  • There's no way I can explain it, and I can't find it on Fox 4's website, but Steve Eagar reached a new low interviewing a $30,000 millionaire last night at around 9:10 p.m. . Anyone have a link? It was gold. I'll devote a whole post to it if I can find it. 
  • And speaking of horrible reporting, this Channel 5 reporter refers to Dallas as "D-town" (you ever heard of that?) and thinks that it can become a farming community. 
  • Random Obit: His "life served no other obvious purpose, he did not contribute to society ... and he possessed no redeeming qualities."
  • There's a chance disgraced Baylor President Ken Starr could join the Trump administration. That's all Trump needs: Someone with no sound judgment. 
  • "We won't be . . .

A quick search shows that the Ninth Circuit has about an 80% reversal rate at the Supreme Court. So if Trump goes to the Supreme Court -- which he said he will -- the odds appear to be in his favor, at least mathematically. (Ted Cruz made the case for success in the Supreme Court legally.)

Hillary's "3-0" may just refer to the first three quarters of the game.

Courtney Gilmore is from Houston (a.k.a. H-Town)...but she needs to remember that DFW can't or shouldn't be referred to a D-Town, Dllas and Fort Worth or DFW should not be carelessly labeled.

Supreme Court Appointments. Nothing else matters. Keep being distracted by his left hand.

in the Random Obit:
that little snippet you gave us were some of the tamer things said about "Popeye" (a womanizing abuser of family, drugs, and alcohol who lived too long).
His family seemed to really despise him. First time I've seen the phrase "horse's ass" in an obit.

The Ticket's talk about a cow in the outfield was pretty funny, but to really ramp it up they should put a bull out there. And lest anybody think it's a ridiculous idea, I think they meant for it to be used only during extra innings.

Donald J. Trump may have his faults, but he thus far has done nothing to harm my finances, and it also appears he's looking out for my best interests.

I could never once say that about Barack Obama.

I did not vote for Trump, I voted for the judges he will appoint in the next eight years.

You watch way too much television, pal. Plus, I see the Hate Donald Trump Show is still on. Why don't you change the channel if it upsets you so much?

Trump supporters are in denial regarding how far off the rails he is in only a few weeks of office. The only step left is to have the Grape Kool-aid party to prepare for the ascension to Republican Nirvana.

Slight Correction: Anyone with a brain knew that the 9th Circuit Court packed with idiot ideologues would misinterpret a very simple statement of law. That is why they are the most mistrusted and overturned group of idiots in jurisprudence.

In a 29 page decision, the Nutty 9th failed to even mention the actual statute where the President receives this specific power?

Looks like they will be padding their stats as the most, by far, overturned Court.

Two days in a row hot RTG girls are touching their hats with their left hands. Is Barry trying to send us left leaning subliminal messages?

For you Ninth Circuit bashers: It was a unanimous opinion, baby. Even the ultra-red judge sided with the two blue folks. Hard to cast stones at that.

PS - opinions are all different in approach & tone. they wrote what they thought they needed to justify the decision and not one word more. if they didn't satisfy all the arm chair legal eagles, there is more to come at next level. stay tuned.

Love how the Trump voters are trying to slide away from their error. No. You didn't vote for the judges or this or that. If you voted for Trump, you voted for him. Own it assholes. FYI: we're laughing at your stupidity. He won't change anything to benefit you. His buddies will get richer and things that you depend on will be destroyed. Also, get your grandchildren ready for war. He's going to get us tied up in something stupid, like every other Republican president since Eisenhower.

On 24.8.2016 I stated on The Blog, "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." and still stand by that statement.

Even when what Trump wants to do is sensible and in the best interest of the US, the Republicans will do what they can to trip Trump and cause him to fail. There is no way the Washington Machine can allow an outsider to succeed.

Beware the red-haired poltergeist.
He feints with fools to git his dyste.
He here distracts, while there connives;
and all the while to war he drives.
The Persian pest he pokes and prods,
to set their guns an' ours at odds.
This is his path to po'er untold
while watchers watch it all unfold.
This learned from lessons, long laid down
by despots rotting in the ground.
He read their books, while we did not;
our principles have been forgot.
Beware the boss-man, high up high,
the master of the pointless lie;
the savior in the silver suit.
Your cache will one day feel his boot.

"Anyone with a brain" does not have access to the intelligence and operations information that the President of the United States has. How about stopping for a moment to think about why this ban is so immediate and so persistent on his agenda. He just said, today, that he has information we don't, and it's causing him to enact and strengthen Obama's plan...who...by the way...is the other guy who had more access to critical information than Meryl Streep has. Oh yeah, the President of Syria (dismissed I guess as not knowing as much about the situation as a going to school on my parents' money "protestor" in a Seattle Starbucks)..said there are terrorists posing as refugees. But hey, none of these presidents has the "brain" the rest of us have.

How can the President's executive order or action violate the "constitutional rights" of a non-U.S. citizen or legal resident? When did every person on earth obtain rights under the United States Constitution? How?

If the NY Times is going to publish a complete and total lie, it needs to be called. Apparently, if the NY Times didn't witness it, it didn't happen.

Southern Dallas is already becoming a farming community, led by the inspiring work at Paul Quinn College to solve the healthy foods issue there. Another completely uninformed, unresearched, incorrect snark so common here.

Since when is it "horrible reporting" when someone reports very accurately on activities you know nothing about?

Amazing that coffee sippers in California, to a person, are all convinced they know a lot more about the terrorist threat, or obvious lack thereof, than the President of the United States.

Understandable, since most college kids today actually have no recollection of 9/11.

Room full of 100 movie critics. One critic stood up and gave his review of a film, and every single one of the 99 critics yelled in unison that the critic was wrong; that the review was completely off base. But none of the 99 had seen the film. Only the one critic had. Kind of like all the libs and soft hearts dying a slow death because they don't see the reason why Trump might want to hold off on inbound people right now.

I just love these all-knowing, hypocritical celebrities, like Rosie, who are not in the room getting the same intelligenace reports as the President, yet mock him for rushing to stop inbound refugees; and who rail against "the wall" while themselves living behind gates and walls. "Welcome, everyone, as long you don't live with me, near me, or touch me".
