The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I attended a retirement reception at the courthouse yesterday and met the guest of honor's mother. "You make me so mad because of what you write!!" she told me in equal amounts of authentic anger and sweetness.
  • I have a weird phobia of being in a crowded room full of people I know. My friends who know that love poking fun of me during those moments. "You gonna pass out?" 
  • Announced this morning: Wendy Davis made the cover of Texas Monthly's Bum Steer issue. 
  • KSCS's Terry Dorsey announced his retirement and it will come very quickly. I actually listened to the station a lot during the 1990s and he and Hawkeye were pretty funny. (And I actually saw him once at the old Garcia's restaurant in Decatur.)
  • Crazy story yesterday of a lady accused of killing her ex-husband and his adult child in Arlington. Two things: (1) She is in photos of the Open Carry group doing what they do, and (2) After the shooting she drove herself to a mental hospital which might just be a huge ruse. 
  • Up until this year I had never heard of a transverse process fracture. Now I'm aware of three football players who have experienced it since September: Cam Newton, Tony Romo, and Bryce Petty.
  • Nothing makes me cringe like seeing Dick Cheney being interviewed. The guy just seems perpetually unhappy.
  • Hey, anonymous commenters, I'm not going to post assertions of fact about someone which, if not true, could be defamatory.  
  • The Girls In The House (all of them) love Survivor.  I get got up in how the bits are edited to make them more competitive than they really were. 
  • The attorney for the ex-JP from Kaufman County quoted Jesus yesterday in opening statements during the punishment phase of the capital murder case. Be careful there, hoss.
  • The prosecutors in that case were appointed so they'll have to submit a bill. I hope some of the news stations find out how much it will be for. 
  • The head coach of Wisconsin left to become the head coach of Oregon State yesterday. Part of me thinks Wisconsin is a heck of a lot better job then Oregon State. Then again, I'd rather live in Oregon. 
  • How much did Kate Upton get paid to be in that video game commercial?  I bet it was a shockingly large amount. Successful video games just mint money. 
  • If I ever kill Mrs. LL, it will be because she is a pack rat. (I tried to find some super glue yesterday that I could have sworn she bought the other day. Then I opened a few drawers to look for it and realize we are the National Archives of Junk.) 
  • The Republican House "leaders unveiled a $1.1 trillion spending bill Tuesday night that would avert a partial government shutdown."
  • My favorite Christmas gift as a kid: A miniature Bat Mobile which I could actually sit on and ride down the driveway. It was funny because it was designed for your legs to extend over the hood. But, man, it was cool. (I tried to find an Internet picture without success). 
  • That first item in the Update is insane. A car left 380 and crashed a quarter of a mile from the highway? And the body is so burned that we don't know if it is male or female?

Obama is going to leave us in the same vulnerable position that Bill clinton left us in after his two terms.

Years of an intelligence blackout because they don't want to get there hands dirty.

That's why Obama called Isis the Jayvee team. He had no idea who they were because we haven't captured a terrorist leader for six years. Obama just blows them up with drone strikes.

If you rename waterboarding, "enhanced interrogation" and rape "anal hydration" they become ok.

Osama bin Laden is a scumbag (and he is) because his philosophy is "the end justifies the means."

But Dick Cheney is a patriot because his philosophy is "the end justifies the means."

And finally a kid is dead for walking in the street, a man is dead for selling untaxed cigarettes, but NOT one Wall St/Bankekr type sits in jail for bringing America to its knees in 2008, and the final insult:

the Republican House has inserted a gutting of Frank/Dodd provision into the spending bill that will allow the big five banks to do it again and require the taxpayer to bail them out again.

I am going back to bed.

904 - I don't know if you've lived too long, but you don't show that you've learned anything from the time you've had. None of your statements show a connection with reality. The question is whether it was intentional for effect or if you're really that lost.

Dick Cheney needs to investigate the benefits of a stool softener.

Osama bin Laden is a scumbag (and he is) because his philosophy is "the end justifies the means."
But Dick Cheney is a patriot because his philosophy is "the end justifies the means."

Those two people have totally opposite definitions of what "the end" is.
And then there's a little matter of the means: the scumbag killed people because he disapproved of their lifestyle and culture. The patriot killed (and used torture as a means) to keep the scumbag from using his means to accomplish his own ends.

And the other two guys you mentioned could have easily prevented their own deaths. It's a bit of a reduction to say they died by the causes you have listed

Cheney's been like that ever since he sold his soul to the Devil.

Dick C is unhappy because his daughter is a lesbian which reflects poorly on his parentage not his DNA.

Wordkyle doesn't care if he has to bail out the banks again. FOX News hasn't told him what to think yet.

9:04 Yep, go back to bed. A lack of sleep can cause one to have difficulty process even the most simplistic of concepts. Take for instance the fact that Dick Cheney served two terms as an elected Vice President of an actual country and Bin Laden served as a tyrannical leader of, not a country, not a full religion, but a splinter faction of a religion. As a result of those differences, if Cheney conducted an action that another country took umbrage with, that country was free to seek sanctions through the U.N., or re-act unilaterally, or even declare war on the United States. when Bin Laden used his minions to effect a forced takeover of commercial aircraft and have those planes flown into the WTC (and attempted to have them flown into the Pentagon), the United States had no way to legitimately retaliate against any other specific country. No, instead, we as a country had to resort to tracking down those responsible, and those who would seek to do it again. It is indeed unfortunate that Mr. Bin Laden elected to utilize conduct unsanctioned by any other country to effectuate his goals, but that's what he did. And if you have a suggestion as to how our country should have better secured itself against repeated attempts by the man, I'd love to hear those. on the other hand, if all you've got is a bag full of Monday morning "gosh, we shouldn't have done THAT" quarterbacking, then yes, please do go back to sleep.

When you have to only type house numbers instead of jumbled words to post your comments, the liberal weenies come out of the woodwork. WOW. It's like a jailbreak at the looney bin.

12:35, That cartoon network video almost has me convinced that climate does in fact change. If you could just answer this one question, then maybe I'll be fully on board. How is the climate going to change back to normal(whatever the hell that is)by me paying higher taxes?

Q. Why do liberal weenies greet each other by kissing on both cheeks? A. Because they are all two faced.

A liberal weenie believes that interrogating a terrorist should be done by waterboarding them with a drone.

Wordkyle and other "Christians" still defending torture?

wordkyle said...

407 - Several incorrect assumptions on your part. I don't speak for Christianity or Christians, and I only defend effective torture.

Do you still defend beheading journalists and slaughtering Christian children? (And since you work anonymously, consider that question directed to anyone who decides to attack America's actions before questioning the tactics of those who want to kill us.)

Anonymous said...

No doubt, after the next major US terrorist attack, the liberals on this page will not be heard from.

It takes human intel to defeat terrorism...not sats, taps, or the other stuff we are good at. Obama and his ilk have once again destroyed out ability to get human intel.

Get ready NY, DC, etc.

That's what Jesus Christ taught us, "Always sink to the level of your enemy. Morality doesn't count when you are really, really mad." There's another parable about using chemical weapons when the fight is too hard.

If libs consider pouring water on the heads of terrorists as torture, something we train our own people to withstand, then yes, I am for torture.

I am also for bombing terrorists, if it is not possible to capture them and torture them for information.

Just so that is clear.

Also, I like Dick Cheney. Right man at the right time.

wordkyle said...

544 - Again, you assume too much. Misquoting Jesus doesn't convince anyone else, nor does it make you seem superior. Meanwhile you ignore the slaughter of children. What were you saying about morality?
