The Campaign For DA

12.17.2014

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • The testimony yesterday from the ex-wife/co-defendant of the ex Kaufman County JP on trial for capital murder was beyond bizarre. Putting aside how she came across as almost happy to have memories of the killings, she fully admitted to assisting in the offense of capital murder. Now she has, at the very least, a guaranteed life sentence without the possibility of parole in her own trial. At worst, she'll get the death penalty. 
  • But didn't she have a deal with the prosecutors in exchange for her testimony? She said no. The prosecutors said no. So if a plea bargain is reached for anything other than life in prison, alarms are going to go off. As they should. 
  • There is now a threat of a 9/11 like attack of any theater which shows The Interview -- the comedy about a scheme to kill the leader of North Korea.  Don't movie theaters have a huge liability issue here? If a bomb goes off, you can just hear a Plaintiff's lawyer say, "You were warned that a theater would be blown up and you showed the movie any way?" And the only other option is to provide metal detectors and other over the top security -- not exactly conducive to a good movie going experience. Or a profit. 
  • When I first heard the premise of The Interview months ago, it made me uncomfortable. 
  • The catapult project for the Sixth Grader In The House must be made of one single coat hanger. 
  • The Family Cat decided to play basketball with a Christmas tree ball after we went to bed last night. I think her game went into overtime. 
  • I was confused that Deion Sanders wife was sentenced to seven days in jail for child custody violations during a hearing on a claim of defamation by Deion. Seems like those would be two separate cases. (At least that's the way it was reported.)
  • Nice book-in photo of her, by the way.
  • And regarding the defamation claim, the judge granted a temporary injunction against the ex-wife and "ordered her to remove any statements from social media or videos posted online by her or people connected to her that could be construed as damaging to her ex-husband." First, that's a very vague order. Second, I didn't think a judge could order the alleged defamatory material removed but that the only remedy was money damages. But in Texas, at least for now, a judge can do that. However, he can't order the defendant to not repost the same material in the future. It doesn't seem worth the effort. 
  • When anyone in the house hands me an Android phone, I might as well be reading Japanese. I don't understand either.
  • One thing I forgot to mention about The Reluctant Astronaut: The great Leslie Nielsen was one of the co-stars. If Don Knotts said something crazy, Nielsen would get that confused look on his face which later would become a staple of the Airplane and The Naked Gun movies. Funny. 
  • We could have Bush vs. Clinton in the next presidential election. Ah, America. Where anyone can grow up to be president.  Edit: I knew I read that yesterday but didn't remember it was commenter Katy.  The Liberally Lean Editorial Staff regrets this oversight. 
  • Texas penalty for abortion providers in 1879. If the mother died or the fetus had been viable, they weren't messing around.

Seriously, do you think that little boy dictator can carry off international bombing? I think everyone in America should go see it, just to laugh in his face.

I doubt that Barry was troubled by the 2006 film "Death of a President."

No attribution to Katy, counselor?

Just use the one you've been keeping around for an abortion after all the clinics in Texas close!

This could be your yearly Christmas post--like your Thanksgiving post.

A Clinton-Bush match gives me tired head.

Bush so far isn't playing to the fundamentalist in his party at least so far...........that would get my vote.

However, as a Republican I am not sure the majority of my primary voters want someone who can win the big one, but instead want someone good at one-line zingers.

I will vote for whoever has an intelligent immigration policy that recognizes we have 11 mil of them, we can't afford to have them all disappear. we can't send parents of American citizens back, and we cannot afford them not being on the tax and social security rolls.

It is time to quit pandering to people prejudices.

The A&M Board of Regents are considering naming the Academic Building (one of the oldest & most historic on campus) after Governor Goodhair? It's enough to make the dead Reveilles roll over in their graves. I may become a Teasip.

Regarding police book-in photos, why is it common place now to drape a towel around the perp's neck?

Where is the "You-Steal-All-Your-Material-From-The-Ticket" guy? I'm sure he'll have something brilliant to say about "stealing" material from the comments section of your own blog.

9:56 because they use those in photo line-ups. Some turd defense lawyer argued the clothes they were wearing made the bad guy look guilty.

A wire bending jig would help you build the catapult. A wire bending jig specifically for coat hanger wire would be even better.

I have one on my 50 year old Rota-Trim edger that uses coat hanger wire for blades. You can't borrow it, though. I don't live in North Texas and I don't like you. :(

Good thing Obama has saved all the Christians getting beheaded in Syria and Iraq.

Now he has time to move on to Cuba and start diplomatic relations.

Man, O is an F'n shaker and mover!!!

I'm not convinced this whole North-Korea-hates-this-movie thing isn't one big giant PR ploy. I guarantee there are far more people talking about this movie than there would have been otherwise. And the attitude of many Americans is to go to that movie just because there's a threat--that's the way we as a country think. In this case, that certainly plays toward making Sony a whole lot of money.

1. The 1879 law on killing the mother during an abortion just basically reinforced the felony murder doctrine, as its description of the penalty for Abortion made that a felony, anyway.

2. Coathanger catapults. Historical abortion law. Is this some kind Librul Agenda, counselor?

I can't comment on any of the topics today as I am still distraught over hearing today how your president Barry was mistaken for a valet.
And then to hear how Moochelle was accosted in a Target store by a white woman wanting to have her get something off a shelf. My white self-loathing is almost to much to bare today.

Barry, do you have even the slightest twinge of regret or in the least a little embarrassed by these two race baiters.
They have one the world's biggest lotto and they still feel inclined to bitch.

1:39, Yes, I'm sure Moochelle was just wandering around Target without any Secret Service protection and a lady was able to make contact with her. I don't believe a word that comes out of these two phoney baloney idiots mouths.

I don't think the Sony thing is a PR stunt. The hacked-and-released e-mails show Hollywood executives privately mocking Liberal icons Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio, not to mention Obama himself. That's further than they'd go to promote a Seth Rogen movie.

In a decent society, your self-loathing is one of many things that you may have to bear, but should not bare.

Bravo Rage, Barry got the bare version because like being mooned by Obama--Barry and the nation at large, bare's the lion share of the shame.
Get a life--it was intentional..Love it how apologists always run to semantics, instead of content.
