The Campaign For DA


You Gotta Respect That Flag And Anthem

This would be gold even if the T-shirt wasn't involved.

Brooklyn Cow On The Loose!

They decided to try and use nets.

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Random historical event I stumbled upon yesterday: I had never heard of the Tulsa Race Riots from back in the day.
  • There were reports yesterday that the UT QB was completely knocked out on the sideline and then sent back into the game a couple of plays later. A concussion could explain why he threw the ball away on fourth down. If that's true, someone on the staff needs to lose their job for endangering the kid. 
  • God help us:
  • Someone took issue with me about how an Amazon headquarters on 287 would be great advertising because "they don't need to advertise." Really? Tell that to Coke, Coors, Home Depot, McDonalds, etc. 
  • Weatherford College has to pay back $1.4 million to the State of Texas. They worked out a payment plan and tried to get it modified but had to appear before a state board last month for approval. Here's the video. The good part is at 43:11. It might only interest a handful of people in Wise County, but they'll be very interested. The request was denied. 
  • We are now past mid-October and have no appointment of a district judge for Wise and Jack Counties. 
  • Trump saying yesterday that no past president called the families of soldiers lost in the line of duty may be his biggest lie yet. (And that is saying something.) He has still not made contact with the families of four Green Berets killed in Niger. 
  • There is nothing more entertaining (and frightening) than when Trump goes Wheels Off during a news conference. The one he called yesterday was unscheduled. 
  • Ticket fans only: During college football talk yesterday, Mike Rhyner said he didn't know if Iowa State was on OU's schedule this year. 
  • Doing payroll taxes and income taxes for my tiniest of law firm (and I hire professionals to help me) can be mind boggling just to round up the information. I don't know how big companies do it. 
  • Hey, Wise County Courthouse, it's my one and only administrative assistant's birthday today.
  • I saw a big guy in a big truck (surprise!) speed threw a convenience store parking lot and then walk into the store right before me. He had a neck tattoo. After spending a minute looking in the aisle, he approached the clerk because he couldn't find what he was looking for: A particular type of breath mint in a particular color. "I've bought them at 7-11 before!" I wish you could have seen my face. And, by the way, he simply had overlooked them. 
  • Oh, my. It's the one at Basswood and I-35. 
  • I attend driver's license hearings all the time. The greatest part is the 10 minutes before the hearings start when a bunch of lawyers and cops are in the same room. The lawyers run their mouths and the cops sit and listen. I absolutely believe this: Cops are far more professional than this new batch of lawyers out there. 
  • In the ongoing Waco Biker Trial, the judge allowed the State to amend their witness list in the middle of trial in order to call a new witness. It's been 2.5 years. The judge might as well be a member of the DA's office. 


It Never Ends

This Will Make Your Day

Two Great Texas/OU Photos

I love sports photos which catch reactions of the crowd
Don't worry girl, OU will come back. 

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • With traffic being the nightmare that it is, what time do metroplex high school football teams leave to get on the road? For example, Denton Ryan played Lancaster earlier this year. 
  • There used to be a slots at the Bridgeport Post Office for "In Town" and "Out of Town" letters. 
  • The second episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm was funny but shocking.
  • I laughed when the Musers of The Ticket were talking about doing errands around the house and you deal with "dirt ladder": You've got a ladder in the garden on soil which is unstable but you do it anyway. I took a heck of a spill a year ago doing that. 
  • Sports: (1) The OU/Texas game was fantastic. (2) UT quaterback Sam Ehlinger is a tremendous gamer. But throwing the ball away on 4th down with two minutes left was beyond dumb. If your coach goes for it at that point, it's a message of "if we don't get this we'll lose". And he was right."(3) The color commentator on the UT game knows as much football strategy as The Family Pup. (4) UNT had a heck of comeback win. (5) TCU had a heck of a win. How did Kenny "Thrill" turn his career around? (6) In baseball, Yasiel Puig did one of the craziest things I've ever seen in a playoff game. He took the first pitch without even taking the bat off his shoulder and just glared down the pitcher. Two pitches later he homers. (7) Somehow I watched the last 20 laps of the NASCAR race yesterday which I think took an hour because of all of the wrecks. That's entertaining? I have a great appreciation for Tallegaheda Nights after listening to the driver interviews. (8) I turned in late to the Steelers/Chiefs game which was great except for Tony Romo's over-enthusiasm. Dude, tone it done. (9) The Aaron Rogers season ending injury was a border line dirty hit. He could have pulled up.
  • The Sheriff in Las Vegas is a Drama Queen. In a press conference on Friday he began it with "I'm obviously Sheriff Joseph Lombardo."
  • You know the perfect place for the new Amazon headquarters? A huge piece of property just south of Rhome owned by a Bridgeport oilman. It has a picturesque view and it would be an Amazon advertisement on a busy highway. There would have to be two nice homes that are given up, but I suspect Amazon would compensate them handsomely for it.
  • A judge has been appointed in the very rare "Court of Inquiry" about whether the Waco DA committed perjury in the Twin Peaks Biker cases.
  • Hillary Clinton has a great marriage test in her new book: “There were times that I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive…But on those days, I asked myself the questions that mattered to me: Do I still love him? And can I still be in this marriage without becoming unrecognizable to myself . . . ." 
  • What you say?
  • Somehow on Sunday morning I stumbled on TV upon FBC Dallas pastor Robert Jefferess private enterpise called "Pathway to Victory." For a "generous" gift, I was told, you could get a copy of his new book. For a donation of at least $75, you could get a DVD set of the series. Snake Oil. No wonder he and Trump are best buddies. 
  • There was a police chase that went from Fort Worth to Dallas on Friday over a hot check. You kidding me? You want to potentially cause death over a hot check? You've got the license plate number and pulled up beside the person and can now ID them.


It's Friday. Let's Get Out Of Here.

 Don't Get Me This Dog!
 Free car wash.
"I've got a great idea! It'll be fun!  Let's . . . "
 Any chance this guy is still alive today?

 That was an impressive unnecessary jump off the top of the fence.
 I've had buddies throw golf clubs in frustration. But this?
Bull vs. Goat. Who ya got?

Let's All Go To An NFL Game!

Language warning.

Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Orlando Scandreck is my hero
  • UT coach Tom Herman has Shake Voice during every news conference.
  • The goofy tweeting Texas Supreme Court Justice has not tweeted since being nominated for the Fifth Circuit. The fake "Aw Shucks" guy has turned into "I Got What I Wanted By Being Fake 'Aw Shucks' Guy."
  • I decided to buy yogurt at the grocery store the other day. Good grief. How can there be that many choices?
  • One of the oddest and funniest guys I follow on Twitter is Fake Bo Pelini.
  • There was a comment yesterday that all NFL players are paid millions.  That always drives me nuts. Dak Prescott's salary this year $540,000. (And there is nothing he could have done about it due to the collective bargaining agreement.)
  • He threw a tantrum again last night. Probably held his breath afterwards. He couldn't even wait until the morning.
  • Hey, it's Friday the 13th.
  • Ugh.
  • Junior Miller of The Ticket had a hot speculative opinion regarding the missing three year old Richardson child: She was sold. I wouldn't rule that out. I wouldn't rule anything out. 
  • It's always a bad sign when my friends at the courthouse tell me, "You need to chill out."
  • This is haunting. They were traveling in a private plane, but jumping from island to island. 
  • Mark Davis this morning on healthcare reform based upon Trump's (yet another) executive order: "If you are in need, you won't end up living under a bridge. You will be taken care of." Ummmm. You been under a downtown Dallas bridge lately?
  • Any update on the "home invasion" in the gated community in Fort Worth from a couple of months ago?

OU vs. UT: College Is Different Than I Remember

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • I noticed that Breckenridge is playing Paradise this weekend. Didn't Breckenridge used to be a football powerhouse in the same classification as Bridgeport and Decatur? Has the population decreased that much. (And, by the way, they are 0-5.)
  • "Black man beaten at white supremacist rally in Charlottesville faces felony charges."  But always remember, there are "good people" on "both sides."
  • ESPN's Michael Wilbon said this about Jerry Jones' declaration that every player will stand during the anthem: "And the word that comes to my mind, I don't care who doesn't like me using it, is plantation. The players are here to serve me and they will do what I want no matter how much I pay them. They are not equal to me. That what this says to me and mine."
  • I've said it before that the NFL Draft should be compared to slavery. Players, after going through the combine and stripped down and looked at on a stage, are then drafted and have to play for a team they have no choice in and paid a salary they no longer have a say in. 
  • Make no mistake about it, if Trump ordered a nuclear strike, the military would simply say "No, we will not."
  • LSU has a problem as many members of a fraternity are arrested after a hazing incident left a student dead with an alcohol concentration of 0.495. (Good lord!) It was due to something they called "bible study" where you had to drink if you got a wrong answer during a fraternity history quiz.
  • The police officer who manhandled and handcuffed the nurse who rightfully refused to take blood from a person has been fired. Good riddance. You gave good cops a bad name due to incredible arrogance and stupidity. And nothing will destroy the career of a cop quicker than the combination of arrogance and stupidity,
  • The "Politics of Dancing" applies to the courthouse.
  • This is very confusing why he said this earlier this morning: 
  • Especially when you consider this: 
  • I'm convinced that I have people who comment on here who are brilliant and others who are as dumb as a box of rocks. (The box of rocks boys will never understand they are in the Box Of Rocks category.)
  • Always remember that the current Secretary of State and former CEO of Exxon (from Texas) believes Trump is a "moron." That is an undisputed fact.This will not end well.
  • Steve Bannon told Vanity Fair in a recorded interview that he thinks there is only a 30% chance Trump makes it for four years. That should shock Bubba to the core (assuming Bubba knows who Steve Bannon is.)
  • It is now October 12th with no appointment from the Governor of a district judge for Wise and Jack Counties. There is a primary election in March. 
  • Trump doubled down last night on his ignorance of the First Amendment.  
  • But wait, there's more! And who are these "people" he is talking about? 
  • There sure were a lot of "news stories" about Arby's new menu items yesterday. Hmmmmm.
  • The Boy Scouts will allow girls. My take: So what? Who cares? It's a private organization who gets to make their own rules. 


This Is Great

And shoutout to BagOfNothing for finding it. a-ha doing a legendary song "Unplugged."

Here's the original for you kids out there:

He's Insane

If he could shut down the press and impose a single government news source, he would do it. And he has no idea how stupid this tweet is. He can't find the First Amendment but he is certainly scared.
