The Campaign For DA

8.03.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • I don't know if indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is guilty but his best defense might be that he's not smart enough to commit securities fraud.
  • I dog Joel Osteen all the time but a guy who I really have my eye is Frisco pastor Keith Craft. Something doesn't seem right. 
  • "The Texas Legislature left it up to county commissioners to decide whether the sheriff, constables, the district and county clerks, treasurer and tax assessor-collector must file" personal financial statements. I did not know that. (The Denton Record Chronicle provided convenient links to all campaign financial reports and personal financial reports last week.)
  • You do realize that if someone is pro-choice that they hope there is never an abortion, right? 
  • Lockheed Martin's F-35 has been cleared for combat. At a cost of around $100 million a piece, is it worth it? How many drones capable of surgical strikes would that much money buy? 
  • Mrs. LL has poison ivy. I keep trying to convince her it is leprosy. 
  • Someone asked me what would happen if I fought Ronda Rousey. I feel comfortable in saying that I would be in the fight up until the moment she caught me and then killed me.
  • "Boyd ISD trustees will discuss and consider attaching a name to the district’s football stadium at a special meeting tonight."   I suppose it is a no brainer that they will name it Cartwright Stadium but it would be funny if they surprised us and  named it IGA Stadium or Allsups Stadium. 
  • Craziest home repair ever this weekend: I had to replace the inner workings of a toilet but discovered that the inline water line would not completely shut off the water (it was a pretty big trickle.) So how am I supposed to disconnect the running inline water connection and fix the toilet?  Uh . . . PVC pipe!! I created the craziest setup where the water drained into the shower while I fixed it. It was right out of the Three Stooges. 
  • Blows my mind every time I see it: "With 5 percent of the world’s population, the United States holds about a quarter of the global prison population."
  • A NASCAR driver almost killed his pit crew.
  • Very random sports observation: I watched the end of the Nebraska/Texas 2009 Big 12 Championship game over the weekend and that last minute might have been the worst time management by Mack Brown in the history of ever. I think he would have been fired the next day if that one second wasn't put back on the clock. 
  • Had someone ask me if I could do it all over again and could go to any college I wanted (cost and being admitted are a given), where would I go. That really got me thinking. I was torn between the West Coast with options of USC, UCLA, Cal-Berkley, Stanford, or Pepperdine and the South with top options of LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Georgia or South Carolina, and the obligatory Ivy League and Northeast school choices of Harvard, Yale, MIT or NYU. 
  • Baylor's Lache Seastrunk might not even make the Cowboys final roster but it's amazing that a guy who holds the all time Big 12 record for yards per carry can't make it in the NFL.
  • I saw online that an old girlfriend announced she was getting married for the third time.  I almost messaged her with a line of "So you're telling me there's a chance?"  But age and maturity caused me to walk away from the keyboard.

"You do realize that if someone is pro-choice that they hope there is never an abortion, right?" LOL That's a good one. Ask the "pro choice" staff at Planned Parenthood if they hope their revenue stream dries up.

"You do realize that if someone is pro-choice that they hope there is never an abortion, right?"

Such an absolute statement, in the same vein as "You're either with us or against us." So you're essentially saying EVERY single pro-choice person hates every single abortion that takes place? No possibility at all that there's someone out there who actually likes abortion? If what you're saying is true then why haven't the leftists done more to discourage women from abortions?

"Blows my mind every time I see it: '"With 5 percent of the world’s population, the United States holds about a quarter of the global prison population."'

That's what happens when you have a free society such as ours. We descended from rebellious people who left their motherlands to come here.

RTG- I am a huge fan of the side boob. Side boob holding a fishing pole-YES! With that being said, the RTG girl looks like she has the grill of a '49 Mercury. Come on man, you need to better research this valuable, imperative first of the day wake up to do list. Looking at the RTG is like morning coffee or the first thing of the day BM. Link below for 49 mercury comparison. Not good today Barry, not good at all.

Between Paxton and Dan Patrick I've become convinced that the Texas Republican Party has been infiltrated by Texas Democrats. It's not like we haven't seen tigers change their stripes a la Rick Perry. What better party platform could there be - "At least we aren't those guys" Maybe Anise Parker will run and we can have penises in ladies rooms statewide.

I think pro-choice individual being hopeful that an abortion doesn't happen was a line from the West Wing - DF Aaron Sorkin

I think the reality is a little more sinister, i.e. Eugenics. And no, I don't think that belief is held by the majority, only those in power.

"Lockheed Martin's F-35 has been cleared for combat. At a cost of around $100 million a piece, is it worth it?"

Lockheed estimated the maintenance on the F-35 over the next ten years will cost a tidy $1 trillion. That's just repair and maintenance, it excludes the cost of the aircraft. And that's an estimate from a contractor.

Barry...you chose your fantasy schools that are actually poor at delivering education per dollar....but then you did say that there was fantasy tuition paid for those. In reality, we have one of the best schools for the money right here in our state. Do your research.

By the thinking of this group, supporters of the death penalty are praying for it to be exercised as much as possible, and jubilant when it is. Oh wait, they probably are. Which explains why they can't understand the concept that a person can support a woman's right to choose while simultaneously hoping that no one is ever in the position to need to make that choice.

Re the prison population of the USA. A large number of countries didn't "beat" us because they just kill their deadbeats. Maybe we can improve our averages that way?

NASCAR clip:
during the last race at TMS, they showed a promo clip where a driver took off from the pit stop before he was cleared. The fuel can was still attached to the car, and he dragged the guy still holding onto it for several feet.

Or, they could have Cartwright Stadium, IGA Field, and Allsup's Concession stand

If Paxton managed to successfully use that defense, it would open up possibilities for all sorts of dumb criminals to follow suit. And not just politicians

That is the most patently untrue statement that our Leftist masquerading as a Libertarian host has ever typed into LL.

928 - If suddenly one day, for some reason, all abortions stopped happening, the pro-choice crowd would believe that they'd "lost," while the pro-life crowd had "won." And you can bet that there would be new research showing why more abortions needed to take place. Abortion is the central religious pillar of Liberalism, the one issue from which no Democrat politician can differ with the hive mentality.

Yes. I am pro-choice. I hope for no abortions. I still feel a 13-year-old incest bictim should bd able to have a medically induced abortion rather than bring beaten by her family. I think a victim of drug companies carrying a horribly deformed infant should have the right to choice. (Think thalidomide.) i think a woman who has a life-threatening condition should have the right to choose.
I don't think abortion should be a substitute for birth control. I'm not opposed to counseling. I am opposed to haranguing.

I disagree with this one. It's the primary means of birth control for a lot of folks. And they simply don't care.

Is the F-35 worth it? Yes. Every penny.

Barry,

While I tread cautiously because I don't know everything..I get why the other side (the anti-christian) would fear Osteen as corrupt and have issue with his lifestyle. This Kieth Craft guy I view as pretty much the same - I caught a few moments of his program and he mentions "reading from my book" that is where I have issues with these guys. They preach from there own books, which is why I get that non-believers would really take this to the extreme that it is...then there is Jeffress - that's wheels off with vengeance and I grew up in the baptist church

I meant to say $100 million would buy 1. Sorry.

I agree with 10:30. The reason you have a bad feeling about Keith Craft is because he is one more prosperity gospel huckster, selling the Gospel for profit and fame. What's the one time Jesus got pissed off and grabbed a whip to run people away from the church? When he found hustlers hanging out by the temple taking advantage of people by making money off of religion.

Today's RTG is as bad as the dentist who killed the lion. She is trying to kill fish by implanting a hook in their mouths and making them suffer. When she hooks one in the mouth she will start a joyful scream and is working with similar primitive instincts as the dentist.

Amazing how so many on here can't understand that pro choice folks don't want any abortions to occur. However, having a choice recognizes that some pregnancies are unplanned, dangerous to the woman or will result in hopelessly deformed births. If better pre-pregnancy education and planning existed, far fewer abortions would occur.

And the suggestion for not having so many people in jail is what, exactly? And how will the next victim feel about that? "Hey, the reason you got shot, or robbed, or your kid was just burned to death in an upside down, wrecked car by a repeat drunk driver, or dealt drugs was because we're sick and tired of having these people behind bars".

They obviously enjoy the fact that women get abortions, or else there would be no cause to be militant about.

The whole basis of BG's comment was that there is a difference between pro-choice and pro-abortion. Again, wordkyle and other idiots demonstrate their illiteracy when making comments like

"If suddenly one day, for some reason, all abortions stopped happening, the pro-choice crowd would believe that they'd 'lost.'"

No. There is a difference between pro-choice and pro-abortion. That was what BG said. That is what 928 said.

Todays RTG needs to lay off the deep squats or the beer ,maybe both. Haven't saw a leg like that since Earl Campbell.
Seems like Carl Klement, Walmart, the Gage girl and several others need for their employees to disclose their banking information .

I wonder how many illegals are running from the Mexican law and continue their behavior here. I believe American prisons are more comfortable than those in Mexico. Plus we get to pay their room and board rather than the Mexican government.

251 - "There is a difference between pro-choice and pro-abortion" You SAY that, but in the real world they are the same thing. You want abortions easy, free, and common. Every time a pro-lifer convinces a pregnant woman not to have an abortion, her choice infuriates you. In your point of view, your side "lost." Of course you dispute such an observation, but the real world result remains. Abortions must occur often, and in increasing numbers, for Liberals to feel validated.

mzchief said...

I am most certainly pro-choice but personally find it tragic that a woman is EVER put in a position to have to make such a difficult choice. I sincerely wish every pregnancy was welcome and healthy. Just a FYI, not all women who must decide whether or not to abort a pregnancy have to make that choice because they're stupid (can't figure out how birth control works) or just "sluts" who are being punished for being sluts. Some women are put in the position to make a choice due to personal health reasons, rapidly changing family dynamics or due to nothing more than birth control failure. Whatever the reason for a female, who is not me or my CHILD, needing to make such a monumental decision regarding her health is NONE OF MY BUSINESS.

Sadly, wordkyle is correct in his statement..."Abortion is the central religious pillar of Liberalism, the one issue from which no Democrat politician can differ with the hive mentality." However, the very same can be said for Republican politicians with regard to the abortion issue.

I've said this before; attempting to discern whether Democrat politics are better than Republican politics is akin to attempting to prove that horse shite smells better than cow shite, they both stink because both are shite. The only thing that happens when you compare shite is that you end up with a nose full of it.

Just because your religion dictates that abortion is a crime doesn't make it so. When are you religious nuts going to figure out, requiring all people to adhere to your religion opens the door for all people to adhere to the religion of Muslims, Hindus, Jews and even Satanists?

I'm a US citizen and according to the US Constitution, your religion has NO bearing on what is or is not a crime in the US. If you want to live in a country with laws founded in religion, move to Iran, Saudi Arabia or just join ISIS.
