The Campaign For DA

4.03.2015

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • A prosecutor in the Tarrant County DA's office who was in charge of the prosecution of the murder case involving a Grapevine veterinarian quit the day after obtaining a 50 year sentence The departures continue to mount. 
  • The fact that a Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is being released should make us all just want to give up. 
  • Fox 4 ran a "buttock enhancement" commercial during its newscast last night with a nice doctor telling us that he offers the procedure starting at $4,995.  Ok, maybe that should make us all want to give up. 
  • First Baptist Church pastor Robert Jeffress is actually an official "Fox News Contributor." (I thought I'd noticed he had appeared on the network quite a bit lately.)  Note to Board of Deacons: He is doing irreversible damage to your church. You may like the publicity now, but his crazy rants will come back to haunt you. 
  • In January, Amazon announced it will hire 500 new employees for its site in Haslet. Yesterday they announced they will hire 400 more.  That's big news for nearby Wise County. 
  • I forgot to mention yesterday when the Fake Barry Green approached Brian Cuban on Twitter about burying the hatchet, Cuban was beyond gracious and forgiving. 
  • This weekend I will only eat Peeps that are free range. (I stole that from Tim Rogers of D Magazine. Although I'll admit it seemed funnier last night.)
  • I'm going to wear out my Baseball Pitchback net. Last night Mrs. LL had to say, "You gonna stop? It's dark."
  • If Wordkyle says the new Iraq nuclear agreement is worthless well . . . I'll agree with him. 
  • The Family Cat has been throwing up lately. We've got an appointment with the vet, but this is really odd. And she seems to be incredibly thirsty Any expert opinions out there? 
  • Sarah Colonna has been all over the radio and local TV the last 24 hours. Admission: I have never heard of her.
  • This Vine clip of Michael Irvin cheering at the NIT last night is as funny as it is bizarre. Buddy, it's the NIT. I just try to envision him screaming "CLOSED!"
  • I'm kind of surprised today's Update didn't mention the death of Stephen Hale. 
  • BagOfNothing went off about the online resume of the new female sports reporter at Fox 4. Sounds like something I'd do, not him. 
  • I read the lead article in the DMN this morning about the Irving City Council and Sharia Law. That public meeting last night was embarrassing. And all of this is about a resolution supporting a silly Texas bill -- a resolution that wasn't even necessary.  I'm not sure the mayor isn't creating a controversy just to get publicity.

You can bet your sweet eyeteeth that Iraq nuclear agreement is worthless!

That's funny. I was gonna say that if you said the new Iran nuclear agreement was worthless, I'd agree with you.

Man, BG, I don't want to hit this too hard, but that girl on the left looks like she has been LITERALLY thrown under the bus. I mean like MAIMED! I commend you on your efforts for RTG equal opportunity, but you may not feel the love if the Bacon scale returns.

The family cat may have diabetes. It happens and I had a cat that had it. She had to eat diet food but lived a normal life until she was 23!

Anonymous said...

I'm with 8:57, sounds like diabetes. Another thought is a thyroid issue. Does the cat seem hungry all he time and possibly overweight?

Bet the Family Cat has diabetes, increased thirst is a sign of diabetes

I rarely disagree with you Barry, but I think you are wrong about the agreement....if implemented.

Far better than dropping bombs.
The war mongering must stop, or at least the mongers need to put their sons and duaghters on the front line.

How much longer will the media avoid stories on all the Muslims killing Christians and beheading 8 year old little girls?

And you wonder why people in Irving don't want this Sharia Law BS????

I don't blame them.

And we wonder why the church is dying.

How does a pastor square refusing service to a gay with Christ's parable of the Good Samaratin?

If you think gay sex is a sin, don't participate in it. But to discriminate goes against all of Christ's teaching.

By the way have you noticed all the adds for FBC Dallas.....how white they are?

Hey LL, the sports person: Eddie LeBarron (sp) passed away. His was a remarkable story. All positive and about overcoming physical size. Contrast this to the present day cry babies of the NFL

I just euthanized my cat without obtaining a diagnoses but he had all the symptoms of kidney failure and would sleep by the water bowl all day long.

"Kidney failure is one of the most common causes of death in older cats...an incurable, progressive disease that ultimately results in death, unless a kidney transplant is done.

Some signs of CRF [chronic renal failure] are: drinking more and urinating more; going to the bathroom outside the litter box; loss of appetite; weight loss; constipation; loss of energy; and “just not doing right”.

Palliative care is about all you can do.

"There are several commercial ‘kidney failure’ diets available, including Hills Feline k/d and Purina NF. Kidney failure tends to ruin a cat’s appetite, so adding tuna fish juice, clam juice, chicken broth, or warming the food may be necessary to encourage cats to eat.""

For the record, that's a fake Rage at 9:33.

The real Rage approves of the first step in normalizing relations with a country that is far more likely to be brought into the light with negotiations than with sanctions. As an example, look at how we've dealt with every other militant Muslim country, and ask yourself where it has gotten us as far as safety is concerned.

The funniest thing about the Iran deal is when the President said, "If Iran cheats, the world will know".

The hilarity: This is a guy who claimed he didn't know his Secretary of State was using personal emails to conduct government business for 4 years.

Has cat been seen eating mice, etc lately. Could possibly have eaten a mouse that had eaten rat bait. The bait makes them really thirsty. Normally will pass on though with no lingering issues.

wordkyle said...

I must be losing my touch. First Friday of the month and I forgot to remind BG that his president is still the champion of unemployment. Labor Force Participation Rate for March was 62.7%. (A drop from the month before.) Last president to have a LFPR that low? Jimmy Carter, in 1978.

So BG's president can still brag about how low his unemployment rate is, as long as you don't count the tens of millions of Americans without jobs. (Which he doesn't.)

My cat was diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure. He lived several perfectly symptom-free years after that once I started purchasing prescription food at the vet's office. It didn't cost much more than regular food, and it was well worth it for the extra time I had with him.

Anonymous said...

Just to be on the safe side, have your vet look at your cat's teeth. bad teeth can cause heart problems, kidney problems, etc. and it will get worse if not fixed. Just went through it with our dog.

@11:41 - Did you throw your Army Mechanic open end wrench at a translator or something while in North Africa?

Barry, what kind of pitchback device did you obtain? I've had several over the years and love to throw, but they've all been cheap and don't last.

Also, did you notice the revised unemployment numbers for January and February?

weellll, my dog kept puking and was trying to drink water a lot at the same time. Actually had developed pancreatitis.
So, I realize I am talking about a dog, not a cat, but the symptoms match just a bit..

Hope Family Cat gets better soon.

Wordkyle,

America is in great shape, just look at the stock market, big business has doubled their value during the President's tenure. Banks are running over with cash. Industrial Military complex just made out big with the Iran deal.

Why would they want to hire Americans when they can bring in foreigners on work Visas for much less? Congress issues the Visas as long as the donations to their campaign funds continue.

Don't worry about the middle class, they are supposed to suffer due to their life of privilege. Work more, make less - it's the new American way.

Forget about the people and their skyrocketing taxes, healthcare and food bill. Food stamps, Medicaid & Welfare are all part of the redistribution of wealth.

If they are unable adjust, they are welcome to become criminals and migrate to an institution or commit suicide. This is the future of many.

We allowed it to happen. We will reap the whirlwind. Actually, we are reaping the whirlwind, and it's consuming many souls.

our cat was diagnosed as being a diabetic.. same symptoms.. we started to give her insulin.. but i couldnt rationalize paying so much for a cat.. SO, we changed her food to a low phosphorus diet.. the vet had special food.. very expensive. we settled on science diet senior (petco), fancy feast classic flavors (no other fancy feast will work).. cat has been fine for three years.

Why do you hate the troops?

Anonymous said...

I do not hate the troops, we are all humans of great propensity, but I do despise the chess masters of war.

Self-focused entities want only to do what will be of service to themselves. How does their society run, then, if no one wants to grow food, for instance, and all want to steal food from the others. Unless there are strict rules, food does not get grown and processed. Thus, those at the top of the heap, who have won out in the pecking order contests, give the orders, make the rules, and viciously enforce them. It is only when such a situation exists that the Service-to-Self orientated groups do anything except squabble. Where those in the Service-to-Self consider control of others of prime importance, they do not control other souls, but attempt to create an environment of threats and enticements such that this is the outcome. They are perforce required to live with others, and once the pecking order is established, go about the business of learning, lessons, in this manner. Those at the top of the pile have the best life style, not unlike human society. Those at the bottom do the grunt work, and live in the worst circumstances. Riots or revolts are unheard of, quickly settled during what we have called Leveling Wars between Service-to-Self groups. Newcomers to a group go through a quick process to determine pecking order, often injured horribly if they are slow learners. Thus, there is no ownership of the soul of others, only influencing behavior.--Zetatalk

The Family Cat may have a gastrointestinal obstruction which induces vomiting, resulting in dehydration, thus causing the cat to drink more.

I hope The Family Cat makes a speedy recovery.
