The Campaign For DA

2.10.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • My head exploded last night when I learned that the crazy pastor of FBC Dallas (1) has written a book called "Countdown to the Apocalypse: Why ISIS and Ebola Are Only the Beginning", (2) that Amazon describes him as a "prophecy insider", and (3) he was hawking the book on Hannity. I'm sure there is no one at his church who needs his assistance. 
  • Here's another odd "Viewers Voice After Dark" filmed by Fox 4's Steve Eager from his home.  He comes across as if he is filming a ransom demand for someone he has in his basement. 
  • The Chris Kyle murder case jury is composed of 10 women and 2 men. That normally has the potential for a surprise verdict but, then again, it's still Erath County. 
  • I heard a rumor that yet another prosecutor quit the Tarrant County D.A.'s office yesterday, but it is not confirmed yet. 
  • The shooting of the Montage County deputy by the Nocona cop is just flat weird. They had to have know each other, right? And we still don't know the name of the Nocona officer? 
  • I blew past the OU vs. Iowa State men's game last night and the Oklahoma crowd was chanting  the name of former Baylor player Brittney Griner (and I don't think it was in a positive way). Someone clue me in. 
  • Had an odd conversation about the old TV show Good Times at the courthouse the other day, and no one could remember how Janet Jackson's character came into the picture.  In a crazy coincidence, I stumbled on that exact moment over the weekend and was a little taken back to learn it was because she was a neighbor kid who was the victim of child abuse. 
  • Whitney Houston's daughter will be taken off life support but the family wanted "to wait until Wednesday so she can die on the same date as her tragic mom." That's a little dark. 
  • All the major sports networks are running with the story of Cowboy great Tony Dorsett suffering from CTE ("a degenerative condition many scientists say is caused by head trauma") after he mentioned that on The Ticket last week.  This is old news. One year ago D Magazine had a feature article entitled, Tony Dorsett Is Losing His Mind.
  • Anyone remember that the legislature passed a No Texting While Driving bill in 2011 but it was vetoed by Rick Perry because it was too much big government?

You have to give the prophets of the end their due.

I mean, Hal Lindsey sold tens of millions of copies of his books in the Seventies predicting that the Seventies-era figures were the characters from Revelation, and look how accurate that turned out to be!

If Whitney's daughter is brain dead she died already.

You know damn well there's a rat in the Montague cop on cop shooting.

RTG evokes scenes from Cool Hand Luke.

NFL: I wonder if there is data that compares modern day brain injury rates to those when they used to tackle versus today's take down by collision methods?

Not enough trollbait today, BG. Try this:

Obama has done more for Israel's security than any other American president:

I don't have much respect for Dallas in general but good Lord had did/does that pastor get/keep his job?

Is weighing 400lbs a requirement for working in Montague law enforcement?

Rage, you can only vote for your hero twice.

Take away the helmets that make everyone's head a weapon or a target, hand out leather head coverings and watch the CTE rate drop like a stone in water.

And I'd really like to know what it takes to be a "prophecy insider". Is there a class you take for that @ seminary? A fee you pay someone? Perhaps a special prayer? I mean, I'm just looking for the sanctioning body, so I can make a petition for inclusion because the last the last time I looked, Jesus's words on this issue were pretty clear:
Mark 13:22 "for false christs and prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." and 13:32 "but of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven nor the son of Man, but only the Father."

That makes me think I could take what the guy in Dallas is peddling, stick it in my left hand and poop in my right hand and all I'd have is two hands full of poop. And who, I ask, wants two hands full of poop?

10:48, I'd have to have voted for him in either election for that to happen.

I think by now you numbskulls would have thrown off some of your assumptions. But then again, your idiocy always impresses me.

There is a greater than 0% chance that Barry Green was the only resident of Wise County to have stopped down to watch an episode of Good Times this past week.

The likelihood that he is the only one to have had an in-depth conversation about the characters on the show, and then stopped to watch the show at all approaches 100%.

Barry must be a cat, he has to have 9 lives. I can count at least 5 times his head has exploded.

Hey Barry, How about a net neutrality update?

Ted Cruz wasn't on to something was he?

Hey Barry, How about an update on the War against Isis?

Didn't you claim that Obama had defeated them a couple of months ago?

Rage, I still can't find anything about all the abortion clinics being bombed. You didn't just pull that out of your Brian Williams ass did you?

11:53, According to Obammy, it's a total success. That's why we are having to close the Yemen embassy.

Hey, 11:43/11:53. Why don't you start your own blog instead of trolling Barry?

Rage,

Here is one from the other side:

"Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston floated the idea of a Feb. 11 death over the weekend during discussions with the Brown family at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta...
The Browns gave their blessing to pull the plug at the stroke of midnight to align the date with the 2012 passing of the legendary singer at the Beverly Hilton Hotel."


Seriously, Fox News? Doing a bit on the fact that both Whitney and her daughter were found dead in their bath tubs?!?

I mean, yeah, it's funny, but that's dark, man.

12:44, you're comp[laining about Obama's manners, while I'm saying he's provided more money and more arms to Israel than anyone else. Obama has approved funds that account for 20% of Israel's defense budget, and you clowns are upset because he won't meet someone?

Get a grip.

Rage, Just one of the many things that upset me about your lord and savior is that he says he won't meet with Netanyahu so as not to influence Israel's election but yet he sends a team to Israel to undermine Netanyahu. Google John Byrd. Get real.

Of course Rage references a far left website. Truth is not a value to the left.

Maybe you were a little quick on the draw, Barry. Your fact checker must be on vacation?

Please dispute any item in the article as not being true. And since you are no doubt a Wordkyle fan, please do as he would like and cite your sources.

Same for you, 2:38.

So, is it wordkyle that keeps saying how unsafe pot is? Maybe he hasn't read a study on it:

You can thank me for educating you later, wordy.

Pot lowers IQ!!! I'm not saying it is worse than alcohol or that it causes more social ills, but the shit ain't good for you outside of some minor (and I mean very minor) medical uses. Scientists have proven that it lowers IQ with even recreational use. That is an undeniable fact. People that argue this fact are as dense as the anti-vaxers, creationists and global warming deniers.


However it should be just a legal as alcohol. Prohibition has not worked and will not work, and it does nothing but compound the damage that pot users already inflict upon themselves. Same with alcohol, but we wised up there a long time ago....why can't we do the same with pot. People have shown they lust heavily after both pot and alcohol and will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

Aren't there laws that already exist that make texting while driving illegal? Something about being distracted while driving, which can apply to eating, applying makeup, reading etc.

Question:

If you take the n out of Whitney, does that make her just another whitey?

I amuse myself...

3:29, The only trouble is that you can't take the N out of Whitney.
