The Campaign For DA

8.31.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • On Friday evening when I got home, I saw on CNN that Trump was about to speak at a private home which he said was not a fundraiser. This despite signs outside instructing those attending the $100 a head rally should make their checks payable to Trump. CNN was really dogging him about it. Trump, being smart enough to know what was being said, walked out and began his speech with, "This is not a fundraiser. I don't need your money." He then immediately went into a rant about the treatment of veterans.  I'll give him this: The guy is a modern day political genius --- at least for 25% of all voters.
  • I forgot to mention this last week: I was driving down I-35 going towards downtown Fort Worth when a black BMW passed me and then almost clipped me as it cut in front of me. In the middle of the back of his car was a bumper sticker that read, "TRUMP". I went from anger to laughter in record speed.
  • On Friday I said I had become aware of the greatest travesty of criminal justice in Wise County history regarding a particular aspect of the process. I finally was able to get a hold of additional documents. It just got worse. 
  • I had no idea Decatur's private Christian Academy had a varsity football team. How long has this been going on? I'm interested simply because they play schools named Inspired Vision and Faustina.
  • Horror master Wes Craven has died. Did you know that the original Nightmare on Elm Street is not in the top ten of his all time grossing ($$$) films? The first four are the Scream movies and #5 is Red Eye (which I've actually seen and found pretty boring.) My source for this is Wikipedia, and I question the accuracy of it. 
  • The Senior In The House took a stand at school about an issue and succeeded in her quest. As I was walking out of the room that evening I told her I was proud of her (which, sadly, is something I don't say enough.) But I loved hearing her reply in a contemplative voice, "So am I." 
  • I didn't watch the MTV Video Music Awards but it sounds like Kanye announced a run for President and Miley "accidentally" bared one breast. I suspect one of the two had carefully thought out their plan of action.
  • BagOfNothing turns 40 today and went all Dr. Phil on us. Pretty good stuff. It really bothered me when I turned 40. A little over 10 years later, I'm thankful if I wake up in the morning. 
  • TCU at Minnesota on Thursday. Baylor at SMU on Friday.  Delicious. 
  • For the last four Saturdays in a row, during my four mile walk, I've run into a lady in her 60s with a Yorkie who is the spitting image of The Family Pet. Uncharacteristically of me, I stop every time and talk to her for a minute. I've learned the dog is named Holly, is a rescue dog, and goes absolutely out of control at the sight of strangers or other dogs. But Holly will let me pet her. 
  • The murder of the Harris County Deputy as he was returning to his car after filling it up at a convenience story is shocking.  
  • Legal stuff: When I saw the the suspect was charged with "capital murder", it got me wondering if the killing of a peace officer had any other qualifications in order to make it a potential death penalty case. It does: The officer must be "acting in the lawful discharge of an official duty" at the time of the murder. Without researching it, filling up a patrol car would probably qualify. But what if he was off duty and on his way home but still filling up the patrol car?

BG, you posted that RTG on purpose to get a specific reaction, didn't you?

Are you light on comments lately?

Was the lawyer not paid? Is that the travesty?

I used to laugh at the stupid Obama stickers on cars until I realized how destructive not having a president or leader could be to the country. I suppose surviving this eight year stretch is a testimony to how great this country once was.

So Baylor doesn't play Covenant Word until next year? Oh well, I guess SMU will do.

thanks for that big Monday morning slap in the face dose of reality.

"Horror master Wes Craven has died."
Oh, did he? Hmmm...

I had the MTVs on last night up to the first award handed out. Everything about it is so overproduced that it's like watching a Broadway show - waaay too, um...jazzy?

When a law enforcement officer is gunned down because that's who he is, it's assassination. That should qualify for a capital murder charge even if he was off-duty

If you had Lady Jane Coggin as a BHS English teacher, you're one reason she's rolling over in her grave. For her sake, and for the sake of all those dollars spent on your Baylor degrees, learn to leave out extraneous phrases like 'a hold of'!

Ye gads, the RTGs of late are bad!

$100 a head shocks you?

But not Obama's or Clinton's numerous fundraisers at $100,000 per head?

I won't mention the name of the Austin bar where that bikini car wash took place because I'm cool like that. The girly in front looks better in other pics.

Not shallow 11:15. Just honest. And no, I don't wonder why some women have a problem with their bodies. All they need is a mirror.

Comments about the RTG are predictably stupid. That woman looks just as good (or better) than 90% of your wives, yet you want to act like she's Medusa. Please...if you were out of town on a business trip, having a drink in a bar, and that woman walked up and started flirting with you, you'd be happy about it. Plus, if you ended up doing anything, she'd know what to do. Can't say the same for the bony, 19-yr-old, white-girl-wasted sorority girls Barry normally posts here.

UT at Austin bowed to pressure to remove the statue of Andrew Jackson. I wonder if West Virginia has started removing all the statues of Robert Byrd and removing his name from all the buildings and highways named after him. He was after all, a high ranking member in the KKK. Or does #DemocratSenatorKKKMembersDoesNotOffendBlacks

No, I wouldnt be glad. I'd lose confidence in myself if that hogger flirted with me.

On second thought MZ, that appears to be a truck. Maybe the damage you refer to is on the rear bumper?

Anonymous said...

mzchief,
Really? It's not that unexpected to read complaints from men about the RTG if she is less than model-thin. But you are going to add to it? The woman appears to be fine with her body.

I assume you are very thin, but do you pile on insults to your friends that are not? "Hail damage"? It's enough what middle school and high school girls go through that are not perfect in someone's opinion. It will never stop if adults don't stop first.

You are obviously an intelligent woman; I would not have predicted this type of comment from you.

Lighten up Francis. Not every joke is meant to be a statement on society or even an individual. However, since you want to go there. The RTG has a LOT of cellulite. If she's going to hang it out there for the world to see, the world gets to make comments.

I'm sure you being the RTG's personal champion and defending her right to expose her fat ass and cellulite make you a better person than those of us who've elected to make comments that don't pass your standards. However, I'll sleep just fine, tonight.

mzchief said...

Oh one more thing. Even thin girls have hail damage on the backs of our thighs and YES! I call it hail damage.

Good job. To all of you. You can pass that on from one of your respectful opposition critics.
