The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • A sex offender in Fort Worth, who has ties to Wichita Falls, walked away from a halfway house last night.  You know what's odd? This wasn't an escape from prison. It was the second time someone has "escaped" from being incarcerated after being housed due to Texas' "civil commitment" law. (That's basically a law that allows someone who has been convicted of a sexual offense to be indefinitely incarcerated even though they have served their prison sentence.)
  • Darren Woodson is going into the Cowboys' Ring of Honor.  He and I went to Las Vegas together once. Some might say we happened to be on the same plane together, but that would be just a trivial side note. 
  • It sounds like someone committed suicide by stepping in front of a train in Keller this morning. I guess if you have worked up the nerve to kill yourself, you can work up the nerve to do it in a violent way. (I suspect BNSF would appreciate other methods.)
  • “We have a real anxiousness about Islamic people, Muslim people coming to Farmersville . . . You just can't trust them." - Pastor David Meeks of Bethlehem Baptist Church at a city meeting last night about a proposed Muslim cemetery. (Man, that name sounds familiar.)
  • For the heck of it, I went out and again tried to turn the cut off valve for the water to the house last night. To my surprise, it easily turned with no problems. I'm guessing letting the WD-40 sink in for a couple of days did the trick. 
  • For some reason last night I decided to watch the Breaking Bad episode where Walt says, "No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!"
  • Did Dallas survive the EXXXotica Expo? I have been looking for news reports of pillars of salt. 
  • Ok, enough Sodom and Gomorrah humor.  But before Lot's wife turned to a pillar of salt, his reaction and response to a crowd which at gathered at his door will ill intentions has to be one of the most bizarre stories in the Bible
  • I'm not sure the DFW weatherman aren't doing a bit regarding this weekend's temperature. It started at 103. Then one went with 104. Pete Delkus has now gone to 107 for Sunday. Fox 4 matched him and then went to 108 for Monday. 
  • Rick Perry failed to crack the top ten so won't be in the Republican debate tomorrow.  With only 2% of Republican support, I think I'd call it a day. After 15 years as governor where his taxpayer funded salary reached $150,000 and where he lived free in the governor's mansion (or lived free of charge in a rent house at a taxpayer cost of $10,000 a month), and since he now receives a taxpayer funded pension of $92,376, I think he has done enough for us. 
  • Man, look at these pictures and get your popcorn ready . . .

Democrats would have a debate if dissent was allowed.

It is bad enough to commit suicide, but even more to involve someone else in the act, in this case the train engineer. This man will always have this on his mind.

I was driving behind a truck driver a few years ago on Airport Freeway when someone committed suicide by stepping out in front of him. All he could say was "I couldn't do anything!"

So, how many of Obama's tax payer, 6 zeroed vacations have you mentioned on here?

Expect the pillars of salt to start forming next week. The eXXXpo is this weekend.

The story about Lot's daughters brings two thoughts to mind:
1. He trusted that they would not be harmed due to his faith in God.
2. He figured that since the men trying to enter his house wanted to get busy with the angels (disguised as ordinary men), that they would have no interest in his daughters.

Can you imagine if a baptist church was denied a permit for their cemetery.? How embarrassing for this guys congregation

Yeah I guess all elected officials should live in a cardboard box and be paid nothing. Geez.

This is the same Lot who later impregnated his daughters because he was "too drunk" to recognize them.

If Wise County can survive that goofy house tucked away out in Runaway Bay where all those couples get together once a month, Dallas can survive a trade show.

Nobody actually reads the Bible. If they did, then right up front it would be obvious that Adam and Eve were not the first people, and that God first created early males and females. Don't believe me? Go look.

I could never kill myself but if I wanted to I would do so in the most painless way possible.

And, assuming I somehow survived, I would not do anything too grotesque, for fear of spending the rest of my life disfigured or as a vegetable.

I hear Rosie Perez and Rosie O'Donnell are out of work so they could find work cleaning Trump's toilets.

The only shot the GOP has in the general election is if they run Bush or Graham. The others will not pull enough swing votes. If they were to get those two on the same ticket, they could be tough to beat.

But, you are right. I have my popcorn ready.

I imagine they would. But, you do know that that line is Union Pacific's and not BNSF, right?

"Democrats would have a debate if dissent was allowed."

Funny comment Wordkyle...but we all know that most on here don't know what dissent means...and even further don't have the inclination, curiosity or motivation to even care.

To help you liberals...it means to have a differing opinion

See how true the statement is now?

The "bizarre story in the Bible" should have prepared us for the bizarre behavior and life styles of the idiots we dwell with. Unfortunately, it did not prepare me enough.

Perry needs to take lessons from the Clintons and set up a slush fund with a Perry Global Crime Syndicate.

You are worried about Rick Perry and say nothing about the ridiculous money that Hillary Clinton has milked from us? Wake up.

Barry,

If you can watch this video and still feel that the Iran Nuke deal is a good thing, then you have a serious problem.

I am beginning to worry a little bit that we have focused too much on the circus of all these conservatives running and not enough on ensuring we have a good candidate ourselves.

For once I agree with you Barry. But, unlike you, I throw in Nancy Pelosi; Harry Reid; John McCain; Dick Durbin; Chuck Shumer; etc, etc, etc...

No one should be in government elected office for more than 12 years combined. At least we have term limits on president.

Rick Perry disqualified himself in the 2012 debates when he came out in support of in-state tuition for illegals. The next day he dropped in the polls and never recovered. If you have not figured it out, Trump's lead in the polls centers around his position on immigration. He tells it like it is and lets us decide if we like what he is saying. I guess Perry did the same thing.

from the link BG posted.

Even the righteous before God can do things that are wrong. Overall, Lot feared God and trusted in Him--even though he did wrong by offering his daughters. God does not remember our sins (Isaiah 43:25). Therefore, Lot's sins were not remembered when Lot was described in Peter's account.

You have a serious problem if you think Iran is the next Nazi Germany. The content in your you tube video is laughable in discussing something as complex as the diplomatic agreement with Iran. It just says they are all like the Nazi's. I lose respect for anyone that immediately goes to the Nazi card to try to win an argument. It usually means they have no real facts or basis for their opinions.

It's the action of a penetrating lubricant. If you saturate a joint with the lubricant and work it a bit back and forth and let it sit for an hour, it quite often will let the lubricant spread over the surfaces of the item on a molecular level. It will even climb up and over parts, defying gravity, given long enough.

Here endeth the lesson.

Supposedly, after trying to throw his virgin daughters to the crowd, Lot's daughters then decided to get busy with him by getting him drunk and getting him to impregnate them, against his will.

Anyone get the impression that we're hearing Lot's retelling of that story of what went on in the cave, rather than the version given by his daughters?

Worry a little bit? You don't have a good candidate...just like the Repubs...get it?

The answer to the sexual offender Texas "civil commitment" law is the same one the liberal weenies use for illegal alien rapists and murderers. Simply designate certain cities as sanctuary cities so that these poor people will have a safe place to commit their crimes without having to be arrested.

Meanwhile, Victor Ramirez is accused of attacking 67 year old Marilyn Pharis with a hammer and raping her in her Santa Maria, California home. She died 8 days later. The illegal alien had been arrested four times in the past. He was on probation at the time of the alleged attack. He had never been employeed by Donald Trump to clean his toilets.

You are the one with a serious problem. Iran is not hiding their intentions or agenda. They fund much of the terrorists we confront. They will make Nazi Germany look like Romper Room if given the resources.

Re: your outside hydrant: For the rest of your life whereever you live give the outside hydrants and water cut-offs a shot of WD40 once a year or at least every other- you won't hate yourself for that odd habit.
