The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Saw in the Update that Wise County has had one same sex marriage license issued. 
  • Wise County's Walmart made Fox 4 News last night with an incident of "improper photography".   (And a personal trainer at JRobs got a big interview.)
  • The Improper Photography law was struck down a year ago since it was so poorly written, but the legislature passed another one this summer to try to fix its flaws. Most media reports were telling me it was already in effect which caused me to yell at the screen because new laws take effect on September 1st. (Then I looked it up and found out Senate Bill 1317 was a rarity and became effective on June 18, 2015 when the governor signed it.) 
  • So let me back off some of my past criticism of Gov. Abbott for "signing" bills in public when they all take effect so long as he doesn't veto them. There are a few laws, like the new Improper Photography law, which take effect immediately upon his signing. If he didn't sign them, they would take effect on September 1, but at least the signing has some purpose.
  • And while Fox 4 was in Decatur, the Whataburger got some press as it was used in the background for a story on how they will not allow open carry. (That chain won't be the only one to ban open carry, right?) 
  • I think that slow moving storm that drenched Abilene might have parked over the Lake Bridgeport watershed last night. 
  • The City of Aurora has a public service message about your junk flying out of your pickup on 114. (And, man, I love the alien on their Facebook page banner.)
  • There are reports that the gun used in the killing of the San Fransisco woman by an illegal immigrant "belonged to" a federal agent.  (The Fast and Furious crowd got incredibly interested until they learned it had been taken in a simple burglary.) 
  • Weird: The Tarrant County District Clerk's Office has stopped issuing passports because of an "investigation into a 'possible infraction' is completed by the U.S. State Department." (Side note: Wise County voluntarily got out of the passport business about 10 years ago.)

I'd rather look at dogs humping than today's Jersey Shore Snookie wannabe pair.
Good grief Skippy.

Two thumbs down on the RTG's. Look like a couple of Jersey Shore rejects.

...and so we must try to find a place to get passports! Not as easy as it seems it should be.

It seems appropriate that there would be a discussion of improper photography immediately after that RTG.

RTG Good thing they have the "C" section scars and bullet wounds covered up or they would not make it onto Bacon's top 100.

RTG REDO!!!

After so much division here lately regarding racism, same-sex marriage, etc., it's good to see something that truly unites us all: a set of truly awful RTGs.

My faith in the future of our country has been restored.

Although it's likely just a coincidence, the fact that it was a federal agent's handgun that was stolen, and used by an illegal immigrant to commit a murder, is so coincidental that even someone who's not necessarily a conspiracy nut might think it has an odor to it.

Katy with the headshot.

I agree. I'm not real sure about that guy on the left.

I would be curious of the statistics of just how many SSM licenses were given out since the SCrOTUS's rewrote the Constitution.

Why is Richard Simmons today's RTG?

What is probably not being reported was that the gun used by the illegal alien was probably stolen from the federal agent by an illegal alien.

Anonymous said...

And illegal aliens account for 37% of federal sentences. You weenies want to explain how that's not a drain on our society?

The RTG pair? Barry, it's not Halloween yet.

The weenies are too busy working (stirring up) the oh so critical confederate flag fiasco. The weenies don't solve problems they make them up.

I'd chase down the man and body slam him if that had happened to me or my child. Showing her lifting all those weights you could have taken him.

So you can't even take a picture of a woman's public area?

Katy Anders said...

9:55: There's probably no way to figure it out without personally going to every countrty and looking at their records.

Most counties in most states don't keep that sort of record - separating out heterosexual couples from homosexual couples.

In 2013, the number of same sex marriages that existed nationwide was placed somewhere between 170,000 and 250,000, which seems like a big margin or error to me: https://www.texastribune.org/2015/06/30/same-sex-marriage-licenses-wont-be-tracked/

Ok! I don't get it. News report was about a man taking pictures. Why show this lady in her gym, lifting weights? Free advertisement? If you can lift the weights I agree with the other post. Take the perp out!!!!

Passports are available at the Gainesville Post Office too. Complete your application, make an appointment, then run down to their CVS to have your passport smug snapped, and report back to the post office for your appointment. Wait 2-6 weeks. Pay extra for 2-3 weeks.

Bon Voyage

There have been some bad RTG photos before, and there is always a yahoo or two who says, "Well, I think she's kind of hot!"

I don't think that's going to happen today.

I got my passport at the Bowie Post Office.

Now I'd never condone hitting a woman, but either of those look like they could make Ghandi himself go Ray Rice on that ass.

Yesterday it was the illegal immigration crowd. Today it's the fast and furious crowd.

One of the things that gives me smilemouth is when BG trolls us with RTGs like that. Well done, my liberal friend.

mzchief said...

You have to give the RTGs credit, for being the dedicated fashionistas they seem to be, and having managed, through hard work and the determination of an Oompa Loompa, to find green and pink trainers with the same level of neon as their neon orange skin.

Well with all the news in Texas since the SS ruling, I think I only heard about 6 queers wanting to get their licenses.


Sounds like a horrible water of time on the SCOTUS part.
