The Campaign For DA

3.03.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • It's amazing that the federal lawsuit over those ticket holders who did not get a seat at the Super Bowl in Jerry World has gone to a jury trial. Federal. Jury. All over that? The NFL lawyers yesterday told the jury that they are willing to pay for the cost of the tickets as well as all hotel and travel expenses. 
  • I'm predicting a Double Not Fake Ice Storm Alert for Wise County tomorrow afternoon.
  • Get ready for an insane amount of potholes. (Still love that "Because I'm a pothole!" commercial that has been retired). 
  • I'm still not sure what I think about Hillary using a personal email account instead of a government email account when conducting business as Secretary of State. (It sure is big news this morning.)  First, if I'm a high ranking government official, I'm not using email for business at all. Secondly, the last thing I want is an email account that ends in .gov  (or co.wise.tex.us for that matter.) 
  • Another police chase last night in Fort Worth with a twist. A cop car was hit as he was headed to the location where the chase had ended without emergency lights. "He stopped at a stop sign and then was hit by a car as he made his way through the intersection." Riiiiiigggghtttt. Injuries ensued. 
  • The rescued Family Pup #2 will only walk to the left (her perspective) of the person opening the door for her to go outside. If you move to give her a lot of room to go to the right, she'll just sit there. 
  • And there was kind of a disturbing moment with the pup over the weekend when I picked up a spare PVC pipe from the flute project, slightly popped it against my palm, and she took off running to another room. 
  • It's behind a paywall (at least for me) but the Star-Telegram elaborated on that crazy murder/suicide yesterday in Benbrook.  A guy goes to an acquaintance house who was dating his former girlfriend. The homeowner goes to the door. Words are exchanged. For some reason, the homeowner fires through the door eventually killing the man. The homeowner calls 911 and then shoots and kills himself. And the woman at the center of this controversy was in the house the whole time.
  • DPS just revealed how many new troopers it wants to hire for border security: 250.  And what happens once they are pulled off the border? You know they'll just be assigned to regular duty.  I'd go on my regular rant about Big Government and Too Many Cops but I think we are past the point of no return. 
  • I've diagnosed my weird skin condition as an allergy attributable to new shampoo or an excessive amount of jalapeno peppers lately. Or leprosy. 
  • Fifty-three Democrats will skip Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress today. 
  • Question heard on the radio yesterday: Is Nina Pham the hottest woman to ever contract Ebola?
  • The briefest and most unspectacular "brawl" in the Baylor/Texas game last night ended up with seven players being ejected. (I was fascinated by an assistant Texas coach who ran into the brawl and acted like he was trying to stop a prison riot.)

Re Hillary. Your feelings on the matter are irrelevant other than it demonstrates your disdain of rules if you don't like them.

So even if I was willing to give Hillary the benefit of the doubt that she was not hiding discussions in a private email account she could edit later (which I'm not) one of the reasons for them using the .gov account is cyber security. You really think her hotmail or whatever she used was as safe from hacking as her .gov account was? Maybe we could just ask the Chinese to produce the emails she sent from that account before her minions finish deleting anything incriminating.

What difference does it make whether I use a private email while conducting public business?!?

Doesn't matter what you think about Hillary using a personal email account to do government business. IT'S AGAINST FEDERAL STATUTE. Dang Barry - I thought you were smarter than that?

I am predicting a population explosion in nine months due to this weather locking people inside. Nine months after the ice storm in Dallas during the 1970's the hospitals could hardly handle all the women showing up to give birth to ice storm babies.

You can't blame Hillary Clinton for not using an authorized e-mail account. She's a woman with a lot to hide. Besides, she's HILLARY CLINTON -- who would dare to challenge her? (On this, or Benghazi, or foreign government donations to the Clinton Foundation, or...well, whatever else she's been up to for the last twenty years.)

I wonder if anyone had a key stroke recorder on Clinton's computer.

Katy Anders said...

Hillary Clinton is always hung out there by the media as the perfect candidate, and the polls generally follow that until we start hearing her talk and see her in action again.

She's never been likable, she always looks like she's hiding something, and unless the GOP nominates Cruz or Bush, she's probably never going to be President.

DPS can't fill their vacancies as is. They just want the money for the new troopers so they can pay current troopers their mandatory 10 hours of overtime a week.

But she is a Clinton. The rules apply to everyone else but them.

She knew exactly what she was doing the day that they applied for the domain name, which was when she was confirmed to the office.

She has plenty to hide and this is the best way to do it. Now, her people can only give out the information that they want to give out.

That assistant coach who looked like he was trying to stop a prison riot is an Ex basketball player for the Horns. Don't recall him being very good but do remember him playing. Guess that's why he's a coach and not playing basketball in China.

On that DPS drug haul:
Why not sell the stuff to those states where it's legal? They could finance bunches more deputies with the $1.8 billion worth they captured.

I don't know Katy, I'd vote Jeb over Hillary. Even the first Clinton needed a Perot to beat Bush. Jeb is relatively reasonable.

Which is, of course, why he will not be nominated.

The petulant child, sitting in the W.H. pretending to be POTUS, is refusing to meet with a world leader who's come to the US, at the invitation of the legislative branch of the government. Worse than that, the petulant child has bullied his democrat buddies into also shunning a world leader, who's come to the US at the invitation of their peers. Democrats have to be double proud that their favourite child has made public that he's also refusing to listen to the speech or read a transcript of the speech.

Sortta sounds like the POTUS and democrats are in desperate need of adult supervision and at the very least a modicum of decency.

Obama needs to grow the eff up and realize, NONE of this is about Obama. Obama is suppose to be the head representative of the United States. When an equal branch of the government invites another nation's leader to speak in the US, the least Obama could do is be respectful. Obama is just another typical democrat anti-semite. If Jews continue to vote for democrats, they deserve everything they get.

Screw Obama and the idiots who support his childishness.

Nothing new here. Every Democrat/Liberal appear to be 100% racist against the Jewish people.

And here we go. Refusing to cowtow to Israel's bullying tactics is automatically deemed anti-Semitic. It's the Republican race card.

I wouldn't vote for either one of them, Rage. The idea of a Clinton and a Bush being our "choice" is horrific. Neither side is even going to be able to pretend they're running an outsider?

Of course, at this point in 2008, the media had the race as Hillary and Rudy, so...

Guys, Iran is about to have a nuke. Just like in 1993, and 1995, and 1998, and 2003, and 2009, and... Oh, wait.

I didn't say I'd be proud of my vote. Just that I thought he'd be the lesser of two evils.

Anyone looking for an outsider in a two-party system is dreaming. A "reasonable" outsider will never get enough money to go the distance in the general (think Paul, Ryan--even though Ryan is a lying dirtbag), and if one gets out of the primary it's only because he's kooky enough to have drawn enough of the core voters (today, that's the tea party type) than the average member of the party he's supposed to be representing and will never draw enough moderates to win the general (think Cruz).

The Denmocrats have only the same tired old people. But the Republicans are getting crazier and crazier, evidently thinking that they just aren't getting their crazy message across. As if blacks and Hispanics would vote for them, if they just "understood". People get it. And outside a gerrymandered district, they're tired of it.

Katy Anders said...

That's the reason I've never voted for a major party candidate for President, Rage. (And seeing how the Democrats haven't won an office for statewide election here since I was 11, my vote hasn't hurt or helped anyone.)

But although a true outsider would NEVER get enough in corporate contributions to be deemed a contender, there is always that "candidate of change" thing that someone claims. Barring that, there's generally at least an ounce of charisma somewhere.

As you say, though, the Democrats have nobody else at all and the Republicans have nobody else who looks reasonable.

"Welcome to the deep end" where egar is way over her head.

10:21 -- The solution for crime is NOT to murder citizens on a whim. Police and government are created for citizens, not just to give egomaniacs and bullies a paycheck and a way to vent their own insecurities.

Less crime? Get rid of the corruption that surrounds our bloated, over-zealous police state. Allow citizens to protect themselves. Government workers should be examples for citizens, not people with a license to rob and murder.

Stay classy and keep that gun in your holster.

Although I do enjoy tilting at windmills, I just can't bring myself to throw away a vote on a third party nut job.

Politicians claiming to be the candidate of change remind me of the Fountain People at Baylor. They'r all trying so hard to be individuals, that they all look exactly the same.

And now, their fountain is gone!

It doesn't matter if the government official uses a personal email account or an "official" account - both are subject to open records requests. Just ask the Alvoid School Board.
I bet the current Board Prez wished he paid more attention in class.
