The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • I'm willing to bet that the "White" and "Power" signs at the Flower Mound basketball game was just the result of happenstance instead of a concerted effort.
  • I posted yesterday that I thought the Cowboys would put the franchise tag on Dez Bryant. Then hours later Stephen Jones said, "Right now we're probably leaning that way." Well, it looks like I've got my Sports Genius mojo back.
  • Love this in the Update today: "A suspected drunk driver who ran into the back of a Wise County Sheriff’s Department patrol car early Monday morning was arrested and charged with intoxicated assault causing serious bodily injury of a peace officer. . . .[The deputy,] who was diverting traffic onto an access road at Pioneer Road due to an earlier accident, was not seriously injured." (And in case they get mad at me for this: "Read more in the midweek Wise County Messenger on newsstands today.")
  • In "The American Sniper" trial, prosecutors "entered drug paraphernalia as evidence on Friday, saying that a hookah, pipes, leafy substance and vials of a clear liquid were all found at Routh’s home." What does that have to with whether he killed Chris Kyle? Isn't that clearly "extraneous offenses" which almost all the time are inadmissible?  (Amazingly, we later learned the vials weren't found in Routh's home despite the testimony of the Texas Ranger. In the long run, the error won't make a difference but that's a major screw up.) 
  • Cops shot a guy in the parking lot of Buck's Cabaret last night in north Fort Worth.  I always say, "Nothing good happens at a strip club at 2:30 a.m. on a Tuesday night in mid-February."
  • Had the greatest joy last week when a BMW blew past me on 287 and a couple of minutes later a trooper zoomed past me as well on his was to stop them. (As the BMW passed me, I remember thinking, "Buddy, you're on 287. In Wise County. This will not end well.")
  • Man, there are a lot of DPS troopers in Wise County who have been assigned to long stints on the border for immigration enforcement. They hate that, right? 
  • Do large oil field companies have to give 60 days notice before they lay someone off? "In Dallas, attorney Allen Vaught has amassed hundreds of clients among the laid-off ranks and has filed lawsuits against companies including Patterson-UTI and smaller firms GoFrac in Fort Worth and Brazos Rock in Weatherford." Is that former Bridgeport resident Allen Vaught?
  • My favorite radio show told me this morning that we just missed the date that Marty McFly programmed the Delorean to travel to in Back To The Future II. Nope. That actual date is October 21, 2015. There are so many doctored photos from the movie on the Internet that the mistake is common. 
  • When "Dance Moms" came on last night, I went to bed and told Mrs. LL to please tell me later if anyone yelled at each other on the show. 
  • Is this 1960s program for Cubs/Astros real? (Hint: A baby cub drinking LSD?)

Re Dez and franchise tag:

Way to predict something that was 90% likely to happen. Welcome to the club.

You didn't mention the Wise Co. mobile home fire in today's RTs. Do you think it was a meth lab? You would get some serious Wise Co. meth lab prediction mojo if it was!

Those people in Flower Mound, as well as Barry, have gone full retard. Did everyone else miss the sign that said "Down" and another, that is obscured, due to it's angle, that could possibly say "with"?

White apologists and race baiters get bent out of shape because of teens displaying hand-made signs but little is heard about the "Radical Brownies," an organization that, currently, only permits girls of mixed race to join, to be indoctrinated into the ideology of "Black Power." Heck, even the little girls flash the hand-sign for "Black Power."

When people start getting bent out of shape about ALL racism, I'll start worrying about placards that MAY proclaim "White Power."

Blacks have held the highest offices in the US, a predominantly white nation. Race baiters need to find a new gig because informed people aren't buying the lie that "Whitey is keeping Blacks down."

Of course they do. Obammy should be sending US troops according to the constitution, but once again he is failing us and not upholding the constitution. I would hate doing their job also.

mzchief - Shame on you. You called out the thin retarded asthmatic kid sitting in the corner of the playground. That's a bit easy pickins for you, isn't it? For years he's tried to make his bones in various blogs by latching onto his betters, and you invited him onto (under?) your bus. You are a very sadistic woman.

In the 60s my grandmother called the Ford LTD the Ford LSD. I don't think she knew what she was saying. Maybe she did.

The LTD was called the "El-Tee-Dee" by the way and not the Limited.

Your response to Mrs. LL about Dance Moms is similar to what I say to my wife about The Bachelor. "Let me know if someone cries or if he has to make the hardest decision of his life. At least since last week."

Fire victims Please Beware of a "Charity" group in Wise county who claims to help people who have lost everything in a fire, only to raise money and donations thru bake sales and other ways, only to keep all the money raised. They raised several hundred dollars in my name and never gave me anything..these people are unemployed, thay are living on these donations..please be careful with these groups.

Tax victims Please Beware of a group called the IRS. They raised thousands of dollars in my name and gave it to illegal aliens.

speaking of moms and phones:
a few years ago, I was set to meet family members for dinner at a certain seafood spot in Boyd. I got there on time, and my mom calls. "We'll be there in a while. There's a lot of traffic." After they got there, mom went to the restroom. My brother then tells me that in the car she pulled out her phone - a normal flip phone with the standard directory of contacts. Then she got out a 3x5 card with a list of names and numbers, and enters my number manually.
She's gotten slightly better since, but dear old mom is extremely technology challenged

"due to it's angle"

'Due to it is angle'? Is there a new queen to go with that English?

12:14 I have heard that Open Arms group was collecting money for fire victims in Wise County and not helping the families any.

Other than your apparent paranoia, MzChief, I agree with you on your race issues.

Question: Does that make you asthmatic and retarded too? Or maybe not full on retard, but somewhere on the Autism scale?

(No, your're full on retard, because like Wordkyle you cannot see what I have been hitting on the last few days--that reasonable people see fault in both sides. Zealots and idiots like you and Wordkyle don't. And I guess I win if historically Wordkyle and his buddies have said 'if you call me names it means I win'.)

Kind of makes his comment about me "making my bones" on various blogs ironic, no? (I called him out one day on BoN for being a helicopter parent--your kids will turn out gay that way, you know)

Got a better one for you.

About 10 years ago, we bought our in-laws a computer. Their first one ever.

I set it up for them and had my FIL sit down so I could show him how to use it.

The first thing he did was pick up the mouse and he pointed at the monitor, like a TV remote control and said, "This damn thing doesn't work. The channels won't change".

wordkyle said...

Well, this just gets funnier. A troll trolls under another name on another blog and thinks (hopes?) I might recognize him. And...

...guesses the wrong blog.

I told Mzchief this would happen.

...guesses the wrong blog.

I don't know what to tell you then. Glad to know you;re paying attention to me everywhere though. I have to warn you though, if you let it go further than this little infatuation you have with me, the GOP is going to try to reprogram you.

Rage

Anonymous said...

Also, I only troll under this name. So you and MzChief might both want to get that paranoia looked at. And it's probably important for you to note that if multiple people have a problem with you on multiple blogs, the problem is probably you, not them.

The LSD in the Cubs program may be refering to Chicago's Lake Shore Drive, though either way there's no way getting around this being a bizarre bit of artwork for a baseball program. For fun, check out on youtube or wherever the song "Lake Shore Drive," by Aliotta, Haynes and Jeremiah.

Not sure where the technology-inept-elder stories began, but there is a flip side. My 92-year-old mom uses the computer just fine, thank you. She has trouble with cell phones, but it's because of the size of the text and keys, not the technology side of it.
