The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • Can we tap the brakes on calling Jessica Liesmann, the "Mama Bear" who accosted the guy who hit her minivan yesterday in Dallas on live TV, a "hero."  Your first reaction when you get hit by a car is to immediately go beat the other driver?  She didn't look like she was protecting her child, she looked like she was just pissed off. 
  • She's lucky she wasn't killed by confronting him. (He had a gun in the car.)
  • And a GoFundMe account (Edit: And a Tilt account) has been set up to raise money to replace her van.  I bet it will reach an astronomical amount.  That is, unless we hear something about her background that makes the average North Texan turn on her. And we all know that doesn't take much. 
  • The heat is picking up on the guy who killed three Muslim North Carolina students over a "parking lot dispute." I guess they just happened to be Muslim, but police are looking into it. 
  • Vermont Teddy Bears is promoting a "Fifty Shades of Grey" edition for Valentines
  • Someone emailed me and asked me the origin of the lightning bolts on the Wise County Sheriff's Office decal. Anyone have the history on that?
  • The Texas Legislature today is having a hearing today on Open Carry and nutcase Kory Watkins from Tarrant County Open Carry is there. Opponents of the bill should just point him out and ask, "You want a guy like that carrying an open handgun into Taco Bell?"  Edit: The hearing might just be about concealed carry on college campuses.
  • One of three Power Ball winning tickets was sold in Princeton, Texas last night.  WBAP Hal Jay, during a live on the scene report this morning, said "We've got the owner of the store here!" Then a co-host, in a racist voice of broken English, said, "I so cited! I so 'cited!"  It might have been TCU play by play man Brian Estridge, but I'm not sure. 
  • There will be a bond election in Decatur ISD which will be interesting. Prop 2 is only for an "indoor multipurpose center at an estimated cost of $3.5 million." 
  • Picture of four feet of snow on the field at Boston's Fenway Park.
  • Sad to hear the death by auto accident of 60 Minutes Bob Simon last night. Whenever he introduced a segment, you had a feeling it was going to be good. (I had no idea he was held hostage in Iraq for several weeks in 1991.)

Hey Barry, how about a net neutrality update?

You probably assume that the fascist left will recognize that your one of the good guys.

Does Kory Watkins not have a job? I have to work. I don't have time to stir up that much trouble. Is he a trust fund baby? Well, he's certainly a big baby.

I don't mean to sound insensitive, but nobody from the Muslim community ever says squat when innocents get beheaded and its video taped.

Now a whole community of Muslims want to talk about this??!!!!

I'm not listening!

Ernest T said...

That was my first thought about this girl in Dallas. She did not run back there to try to help the police apprehend the guy. She was running back there to beat his a## because he hit her car.

I don't know about anyone else, but after an accident my first thought is to go check and make sure that myself and the other drivers out. It is not to go back and beat the other driver up.

Got a feeling that, if someone checks her background, they will find some interesting things!

According to Obammy, the three Muslim students that were killed was just a random act of violence, just like the Muslim that murdered the Jews in the Paris Jewish grocery store. And if you believe that, then Brian Williams should get his job back with backpay.

I remember when Bob Simon was freed. His capture was big news during the Gulf War.

As soon as he was freed he went on Larry King Live where a soldier called in, furious, because Simon allegedly got captured by crossing into territory he wasn't supposed to.

The soldier said he had to go look for him, and he gave Simon a tongue lashing.

Simon said nothing in his own defense.

I'll be shocked if he gets through security after the threats he has made lately. They would be absolutely within their rights to exclude him from the building.

This is 100% false. Just because you don't know any Muslims doesn't mean they approve of terrorism.

Just the racist dumb ones and their racist dumb constituents.

That's strange. Last I heard we killed so many Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan and made such a mess of their countries that we don't even have an accurate count of how many we killed.

Don't feel sorry for Kayla Mueller, the American who was being held hostage and killed by the Jordanian air strike.

I said the day it happened that y'all wouldn't care about her. It took you an extra day or two longer than I thought it would, though. Maybe the article had big words and you had to look them up one at a time.

The man that killed the three Mooslums was a right wing, Christian conservative, Tea Party, gun clinging, abortion clinic bombing, knuckle dragging homophobic bible thumping terrorist. Kind of like what Rage thinks about all Republicans.

That is absolutely not true. I don't think all Republicans are terrorists.

Your words suggesting the superintendent and school board lack any intelligence may be well-founded but that should not impact the district needs as they are laid out in the bond.

People need to review each proposition and base their vote on the validity of the needs each bond represents. NOT on the visceral reaction to someone screaming VOTE NO. VOTE NO because they despise the sitting members of the school board and the current super.

It is supposed to be about the kids...remember? Not your need to spew hatred toward a few people who simply lack the ability to properly steer our school district.

Anonymous said...

I would vote YES for the indoor facility in a heartbeat, the Prop 1 on the other hand, NO. Why are we adding technology to a bond that will be paid out over X amount of years when that technology will be obsolete in 2. The added security at the schools actually needs to be in the parking lot of the high school with an added traffic light at the entrance. Card readers will be a waist of funds. As for the transportation part, can we not fix the broken buses instead of sending them to a school bus graveyard and buying new ones?

I believe in our administration, just not in Prop 1

Right. And so these are two people you don't care about that have some suspected ties to terrorists. I'm not seeing your point here, except to say that you need very little proof to start disliking someone.

Well, seeing as how he's being court martialled for going UA, not for being a Muslim sympathizer, I'm not sure how to respond except to say that you may be surprised to learn that there are many Muslims who are American citizens, and many of them are in the armed forces, so there's not actually anything wrong with being a Muslim sympathizer. You could even be a black-person sympathizer, or an atheist sympathizer, or a Mexican sympathizer. You'd be amazed at all the different kinds of people you can sympathize with.

In fact, so long as you don't give aid to the enemy, you can even sympathize with them. American forces sympathized with Germans and gave them food and water and cigarettes when they were captured. Hell, we fed them better than their own army did. Ones kept in camps in the US could even eat in restaurants that wouldn't serve black American citizens. Something I am sure you would have had no problem with.

That's disappointing, 10:13. Let's review...

The first question was, why do you refer to Obama as Obammy? Your response seems to indicate an attempt at an analogy, but "Hitler" is a poor choice for the following:

Obama:Obammy::Bush:_____

If you need help, click here.

The second question was a polar question. However, thank you for sharing that you don't eat foods you don't like. I don't either.

To whomever keeps incorrectly referring to illegals and taxes:

Illegals do pay taxes. They use an ITIN number assigned by the IRS since they don't have a social security number. They must prove they have filed taxes for three years before they can apply for a social security card. Something the IRS has been doing for many, many years. They often pay more taxes than you and I because employers take advantage of their status and pay them all like contract labor; in other words, the employer gets away with not paying their part of the social security and medicare taxes. Illegals do not receive any of the tax benefits often enjoyed by legal citizens, like earned income credit (which means you make a bundle of money for having lots of kids and only working at piddly little part time jobs). Even if they are able to retroactively get some of those benefits, in the long run they still lose out to the system.

I think they have plenty of proof for him being UA. I would imagine they also have plenty of proof that he was a Muslim sympathizer, but that is not an offense for which you can be prosecuted.

I'm sorry if you asked a stupid question and I pointed it out, and you still don't understand why you asked a stupid question, but there's really not much else I can do for you.

Alright goofball, I'll walk you through this. But I'm only going to do it once, so pay attention. I learned my lesson trying to educate Wordkyle and he's just as much of a hypocrite as ever, so one shot is all you get.

At 11:10 you said: "Rage, Are you saying the military is going to court marshall Bergdahl with very little proof that he deserted and was a Muslim sympathiser?"

At 11:52 I responded by saying there was nothing wrong with being a "Muslim sympathizer", but offered no opinion on the level of evidence of his UA.

At 1:24, you rightly pointed out that I had not commented on the amount of proof regarding his UA when you asked: "So you can't respond to the fact that the military is going to court marshall him with very little proof?"

(Mote: I really with you would use 'martial' instead of 'marshall', because, you know, that's the proper spelling.)

To which I responded at 2:40 with I think they have plenty of proof for him being UA.

(Note: I don't know how much more plain I could have made it.)

So let's go back up to 10:40, to see what I actually said about how much proof is needed: "I'm not seeing your point here, except to say that you need very little proof to start disliking someone."

Did you get that? I never said the military was prosecuting him with little proof, I said that YOU need little proof before disliking someone.

I hope that answers your questions. And by that I mean, I hope you stop asking stupid questions.

Thanks,

Rage
