The Campaign For DA

1.26.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • You know, I made fun of the False Flag people in connection with the razing of the house of the shooter of Sandy Hook elementary. And I still will. But it is weird that they are tearing down a perfectly good house. I mean, it's worth something, right? Heck, I'd buy it if the price was low. 
  • "You walk into any Republican Club and quite frankly, the real challenge it to find someone there under 50, please." - Mark Davis on his radio show last Friday. (And, after going back and listening to his show, he absolutely believes that Chris Kyle killed two car-jackers. Note to Davis: You believe stuff like that and I question everything you say.)
  • Can no one tell the truth? Hannity had Chris Kyle's father on his "special" show on Friday night and the father spoke of Kyle shooting the young boy which is featured in the first scene of American Sniper. But Kyle never even said or wrote that he did such a thing. Incredible. 
  • One more thought on that Hannity show: Why do we come to the defense of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and scream "Free Speech" but get outraged when Michael Moore or other celebrities criticize American Sniper? (Hannity, during the show, suggested putting Moore in a room with five Navy Seals. That's promoting violence because of certain speech.)
  • Nothing is more of a time waste than an interview with a player in a professional sport.
  • Troy Aikman seems angry over the last month. Very angry. I wonder if something is going on.
  • I hope I live long enough to see history judge the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. History will not be kind.
  • College football recruiting: A kid committed Texas flipped to Auburn over the last few days and then "Snapchatted" a photo of himself holding a wad of cash. Edit: Link fixed.
  • Grand Prairie police arrested two people for driving while intoxicated early Sunday after three back-to-back car crashes into unoccupied police cars. 
  • New York City is expected to get hit with a record blizzard today and tomorrow. When I heard that last night, I thought that if I were rich I'd hop in a plane and find a hotel as close to Central Park as I could. And then I'd walk and walk this afternoon.  (And when I'm on my deathbed, I'll ask myself, "Why didn't you?")
  • The greatest NFL receiver that never was, Josh Gordon, is facing a ban of one year for failing another drug test. And the drug he tested for? Alcohol.   Worst. Player's. Union. Ever. 
  • We crowned a New Miss Universe over the weekend. Is that the most presumptuous title ever? (The winner was Miss Colombia Paulina Vega.) Edit: Saw this after I wrote that. 
  • There were protestors in the Supreme Court on Thursday objecting to the silly Citizen's United decision which allows the rich to buy elections.  I thought it was cool that there was an "artist's rendering" of the event but was surprised to see there was cell phone footage. (Those security folks needed to lighten up on that first lady.)
  • Teacher suspended for supporting "And another."
  • From the Update: "FREEDOM TEXAS – Freedom Texas will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday in the meeting room at Pizza Hut, 501 S. Washburn St., in Decatur. This is a group that educates people about the sovereignty, security and self-sufficiency of Texas and promotes its eventual independence." Let's guess the average age and race of the attendees.

What? Nothing about the Alvoid School board transparency issues? My neighbor says he has seen a letter from the atty. general telling the school board president either release emails to the public or face legal action. Come on BG, you ride other ISD's when they do something stupid, why give these guys a pass. Or have you been bought off the AISD board home builder?

I can totally understand objecting to the war in Iraq, but I don't understand objections to us going into Afghanistan.

Seriously....it was the main hub of Al Quaeda and it was where Bin Laden planned the deaths of thousands of Americans for years.

What were we supposed to do?

Hope for an extradition treaty?

You don't have to go to New York for the global warming event of the decade. We had ice and/or snow three times last winter in Wise County.

Opps, I guess I am supposed to use the term "climate change" since the Arctic did not melt as Al Gore predicted and the left redirected their attack on carbon fuels.

Your support of 99Rise is embarrassing. How exactly do the "rich" buy elections? Pay people to vote in a particular way? Have Black Panthers intimidate voters? (Wait, sorry, that was the Hope and Change crowd.)

In my recollection, it was just Kerry getting lambasted for three Purple Hearts, none of which required medical attention.

How times have changed! Once you worried about being scammed by a roofer, paver, plumber, salesman.

Now there are all these politicians, right wing nuts raising money via internet. I simply cannot get the Huckabee emails to stop. These Texas nuts simply don't have enough to worry about.

No doubt Hannity is frustrated with idiots like Moore. Navy Seals would not harm a fat brainless fool like that...and you, Hannity, and everyone else knows that. Obviously, Moore has and exercises his freedom of speech more that most...for he is an unpatriotic windbag. But God gave us Mr. Moore for comic relief.

Earf! Earf! Earf!
My immediate thought on reading your Miss Universe post was similar to the Tweet: If the rest of the universe thinks they can compete - BRING IT!
Las chicas Colombiana could take them all on with no help from the rest of the planet. They're just that smokin' caliente! I don't know if it's something in the water, or the coca leaves, or what

What's the attraction of tromping through a foot or more of snow in Central Park? You could absolutely do that without being rich, by the way. Most folks who are smart enough to be rich also have the sense to know it's way more fun to play in the snow in St. Moritz or one of them other Alps-y type places. Less likely to encounter some penniless perv who will flash his frozen carrot and peas at you

"Hannity, during the show, suggested putting Moore in a room with five Navy Seals. That's promoting violence because of certain speech.)"

Why does Hannity believe it will take five Navy Seals to deal with Michael Moore?

Can't Hannity deal with Michael Moore himself?

Can no one tell the truth? Your characterization of Citizens United shows that you can't.

But at least you believe you know better than, say, Kyle's father at what really happened. Do I know if he shot a kid with a grenade? No. I'm certain you don't know. His father might know. Certainly his book says the woman with the grenade and her child stepped out into the street before he saw the grenade and shot the woman. It's certainly plausible that he also had to shoot the kid, but didn't choose to put it in his book -- and it's absolutely certain that you wouldn't know one way or the other.

Someone does not understand free speech. You cannot kill someone for what they say or write but you can criticize them. You can debate issues. Understand?

Regarding "the rich" buying elections, there's this story. During his campaign for president, JFK once remarked that he'd received a telegram from his father. "Dear Jack: Don't buy a single vote more than is necessary. I'll help you win this election, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide!"

Citizens United simply let other Americans do what union members have been doing for decades.

Anonymous said...

Chris Kyle and at least some of his family seem to have a problem with the truth.

From Salon.com:

Chris Kyle’s Family Claimed He Donated His Book Proceeds To Veterans’ Charity, But He Kept Most Of The Profits: The National Review debunks the claim that all proceeds of his book went to veterans’ charities. Around 2 percent – $52,000 – went to the charities while the Kyles pocketed $3 million.

A gun at the Shot Show was auctioned and the proceeds given to Chris Kyle's widow.

So it goes.

Sheesh.

Whatever.

Nailed it. And Barry, promoting violence with a hypothetical showdown between Seals and ole blubbermouth? Really? You are reaching harder than a Baylor fan thinking that the Bears were worthy of the CFB playoffs.

You can pick apart lies, inaccuracies, whatever you want to call them about Kyle. However, he had more bravery in the pimple on his ass than you have in your whole body. Get over it Barry.

"Why do we come to the defense of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and scream "Free Speech" but get outraged when Michael Moore or other celebrities criticize American Sniper?"

Just to clarify: Are you equating Conservatives who criticize Michael Moore with the Islamic murderers? Are those equivalent in your mind?

After looking into that Sandy Hook deal, I don't know where to start. I was like you before I spent time going over the evidence, looking at the videos, etc. One thing is for sure, I won't make fun of people anymore who say things that are contrary to my understanding of things. You shouldn't either.

You realize the quote you mention was given by John F. Kennedy himself during the Gridiron Dinner in 1958 and was intended as humor. No such wire ever existed.

Right?

wordkyle said...

1100 - Yes, I do. The point is that five decades before Citizens people were complaining about "the rich" buying elections. I thought that mentioning JFK himself told the story was indication enough that it was a joke. Sorry for the confusion.

sparkerr said...

Wordkyle -

I was about to say the same as 11:00. JFK himself told that as a joke. - - It does seem odd that you have that quote and don't know or don't give the context.

Let's guess the average age and race of the attendees.

If I made the same comment regarding a BET hip-hop concert in Oak Cliff, or a La Raza festival on the Northside, what point would I be making?

None, but I would sound like a schmuck.

It would only be a useful observation if the event organizers, be they WCRs, the Black Panthers, or La Raza prevented participation by others of dissimilar demographics.

Try a dose of introspection on your white guilt.

Central Park in the snow is magical. All the noise stops. It is so quiet, calm, and peaceful. Everything it isn't on any other day.

Right after the snow stops, all the dogs with their owners in tow come out but right before that it is magical.

Another flaw in your post. The election you refer to in 1958 was for the US Senate. Kennedy did not declare for the Presidency until 1/2/1960.

Hey Decatur come over to Bridgeport tonight and see what a competitive basketball game looks like. Could be your only chance to see one in Bridgeport for a while. Should be close, Bulls might even get beat.

Anonymous said...

12:03, I am a diehard Bulls supporter, but if you hashtag "we are bridgeport", it comes across as "wear e bridgeport". Maybe just stick with what Bridgeport folks are already using.

Also looking to see a very good game tonight, as well as try In n Out for the first time.

129 - I stand corrected. I knew of the story but didn't bother checking the occasion. Nonetheless, my point -- that concern about the rich buying elections predates Citizens United by decades -- remains valid.

More misinformation from another someone who does not attend the Alvord school board meetings, but, is a know all about the issues
1.What? Nothing about the Alvoid School board transparency issues?

There are NO transparency issues.

2.My neighbor says he has seen a letter from the atty. general telling the school board president either release emails to the public or face legal action

Your neighbor is either a liar or cannot comprehend what "he" reads.
A complaint was filed to the Attorney General for ALL board members to submit all e-mails,phone messages and personal messages relating to AISD business. ALL COMPLIED. The AG found nothing wrong with the exception of an irregularity on board meeting policy. The AG told the Superintendent that if the school board held the required training, the AG complaint would be closed. The AISD has scheduled the training for this Thursday.

3.Come on BG, you ride other ISD's when they do something stupid, why give these guys a pass. Or have you been bought off the AISD board home builder?

There's only one home builder on the AISD.......be careful 8:45.....getting real close to slander

The REAL issue with AISD is ex board member/s constantly stirring the pot. A current ex board member had an article in the Messenger saying she felt the board needed to be re-aligned with "educated leadership"....well 400 voters did that last year......that's one reason the ex board member is upset. The ex board member has chosen to point a finger at two current board members, the Board President and the "home builder".....what about the other 398 voters that voted against her?
Second and third hand "information" is what causes dumb people to look stupid.

get the facts straight 8:45

Hey 3:46
I have read the letter (as have several other people OUTSIDE of Alvord) and you're one of four people: The UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT, the board member home builder, or one of their spouses. I suspect the first. In any event your feeble attempt to cover the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT'S butt fails when there are documents to the contrary.
1) The Atty. Gen. letter was addressed to the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT personally, not the board or any other member;
2) The AG letter threatened civil legal action against the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT personally if he did not contact them within 10 days;
3) The transparency issues are a result of the fact the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT personally fought the open records request (and remember, the ex-board member finally has the emails to prove all of this) for over five months. Transparency? The UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT creates the perception of impropriety else he would release the emails AS REQUESTED;
5) Now thanks to the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT the AG has a target on the back of the AISD, thus the mandatory training to be held next Thursday (the agenda is out), AND
5) When the AD, coaches and EMAILS!!! get finished telling how the board member home builder and his spouse tried to do financial and professional harm to the ex-board member, people are going to know exactly what kind of sad, vindictive "people" two of those board members are. Yes, 390+ people voted the way you wanted them to. But you better remember, 140 + didn't, and some of us who were duped will not be next time. And if you think this is over after what the UNEDUCATED BOARD PRESIDENT and the home builder board member allowed the village idiot to do to the former cheerleader sponsor, "you ain't seen nothing yet!"

Do you ever think of the kids when you are slinging mud at other people? Do you think that may'be you and your constant negative attitude just might be hurting your business?

I know that ex board member personally. It is true she may be a fat ass, a smart ass, and a pain in your ass...but at least she's not a dumb ass. She would not be blogging anything slanderous and leave herself open to a law suit like some of you have. My theory is that she has information that could get your ass in a lot of trouble and by the end of this, you're going to be kissing her ass.
