The Campaign For DA

8.04.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Donald Trump continues to soar in the Republican polls. Fox News is giddy about this. I'm giddy about this. How crazy is that?  I'm searching for an analogy because I think this is a train wreck/self implosion in the making while others think he's the conservative savior. Help me out.
  • If you refer to Ted Nugent as "Uncle Ted", I'm worried about you.
  • College Game Day is coming back to Sundance Square to kick off the college football season. I went down there last year and will probably do it again. (Get ready for an Alabama invasion.)
  • The Messenger is about to give us a bunch of pictures of the new V.R. Eaton High School which is off of 287 past the Saginaw cutoff.  That place is massive and seems to be surrounded by more athletic fields than Valley Ranch.  Question: How is traffic going to work for that thing?
  • This morning Mark Davis promoted an upcoming investing seminar in Tyler presented by "Pastor David Mitchell". I googled it and this is what is on the "buy tickets" page for the seminar: "BUY 1 TICKET FOR $99.95 ($4,500 VALUE) GET 1 FREE!"   You kidding me? On a different page, they actually have a $4,500 button below the $99.95 button in an apparent effort to prove it really is a $4,500 value. My incredible distrust for this group and desire to run as far as possible away from them is only exceeded by their hubris. (And there seems to be a strong Baylor presence in that group.)
  • I will continue to offer Liberally Lean for free for the foreseeable future -- That's a $4,500 value.
  • I learned Jason Garrett has 28 nieces and nephews. I have two.
  • Anyone want to justify this: Video shows third grader handcuffed (around his arms) by Kentucky deputy.  (That caused me to yell at the TV last night.) 
  • BagOfNothing writes about going to Burger's Lake yesterday. I went there when I was 17 years old -- in the middle of a spell of teenage heartbreak angst -- and have never been back. That's amazing because I loved that place. Afterwards, my two buddies and I stopped at some place on Lake Worth and jumped off a platform which had to be over 50 feet tall.  They dove. I just jumped.
  • I was working for my dad at his store on that day, and I timidly asked to take the afternoon off. He did. But he also said, "You need to decide if you want to work or you want to play."  There are the oddest moments in your life that you will never forget and which will have an impact forever. 
  • As expected, Boyd ISD named the high school football stadium after former coach J.G. Cartwright last night. But I got caught up by this extra sentence about the story in this morning's Update: "Trustees also awarded the Boyd Elementary roof project to American Pride of Dallas."  In addition to being an odd fact to add to the story, I started to laugh at a company which named itself "American Pride".  What are the chances of there being a bald eagle in the company's logo? Spoiler alert: They do.  How they don't have Lee Greenwood automatically playing has to be an oversight.

In Wingnut Land 9 billion trumps all negatives!

Surely New Yorkers are as embarrassed as I am being represented by Perry and Cruz.

To add to the insult Paul attended by beloved Baylor, and Huckabee is a Baptist, my church by choice.

Can it get worse?

If republicans want to fund fewer abortions, they might consider not defunding Planned Parenthood's 500 million, none of which goes for abortions, but stopping the near 10 billion, with a b, going to Israel whose national healthcare systems fully, as in totally, funds abortions.

I don't think of Donald Trump as a conservative savior. I think this time next year he'll just be a footnote in this race.

But I am glad SOMEONE with real media clout is calling out these RINO Republicans who cave to Obama, suck up to a liberal media that will hate them no matter what and have about as much fire and aggression in their bellies as Mister Rogers.

Even the REAL conservatives running are just a bunch of polite grandmas.

Give them hell Donald!

We must worry about Donald Trump because us democrats have no candidate yet. (Clinton is an idiot and surely is just for comic relief....and poor at everything she has tried to do...even Bill would tell you that.

My contributions to your blog worth $4,500 are priceless.

According to the Update: "It will be J.G. Cartwright Field at Yellowjacket Stadium."
The field, not the stadium, is named for the coach

Of course Trump tickles your fancy. All liberals are thrilled with him because he takes all the focus off of Hillary's liabilities.


continued P1 patronage to Liberally Lean:
that's a $5,000 value! (we're all just assessing our own fees, right?)
I'll drop by your office later to collect the $500 difference

Who paid for this? Did Plano ISD taxpayers have to pay for another school?

I guess American Pride to Libturds would be a Mexican Flag with Obama on it?

The Boyd ISD trustees named the FIELD after Cartwright. The stadium is still Yellowjacket Stadium. Cartwright Field at Yellowjacket Stadium.

Does Jason Garrett's number only include direct blood or does that include by marriage also. It seems your number would be different if you included Mrs. LL's.

My son bought a motorcycle in college while I was fully funding his education. For those of you who say the American tax payer is not funding abortion with the yearly $500M allocation to PP, was I right in telling my son sell the bike or your college days at my expense are done?

wordkyle said...

"Giddy" Funny word. Democrats must be giddy about Hillary.Oh, wait. (But don't worry, you've got Lonesome Joe on deck.)

Anonymous said...

OK, so I get the suggested tone intended for this blog from the title. But LL, perhaps you can expound on some of the idiocy going on in non-conservative world of politics. Maybe you can explain the difference between socialism and democracy? or even the new party of socialist democrats? Because from my recollections of living in New England for several years, Vermont was actively soliciting full-time residents at one time because of the shrinking workforce. The demographics show it is about 93% non-Hispanic white. So, Bernie Sanders is the 2nd best hope for their party - that's pretty wheels off. And if Biden jumps in, his antics will offset Donald Trump. So far, it's looking good for Conservatives. Your thoughts?

RTG is horrible. Those bolt-ons look like small white bowling balls and she has zero cleavage. Not to mention the gross tats.

Goober said...

My two random thoughts (worth what they cost, much <$4500):

1) we really need bacon today. This girl(?) is a major skankoid, and

2) Trump leads the polls because the republicans have yet to consider overall electability. Once the base starts thinking about how to get mainstream middle America to vote for this tool, trump will become the third party spoiler that Perot dreamed of. And guess who the first woman president will be? Funny how history regularly repeats itself.

(And the sand fleas are horrible this year)

We all know JOE BIDEN will definately provide more comic relief than all the conservatives combined but "lonesome joe"?

Wordkyle this is a hit below the belt to a man that has seen more tragedy that most of us will ever see. Shame on you.

mzchief said...

I'm right there with you, CT.

That may be the trashiest RTG in the history of EVER! There is just so much grossness that can't be unseen, with that girl. The fail bolt-ons, nasty tats, razor burn around the inner thigh area of her bikini bottom, stubble at the top of her bikini bottom are all things of her own doing so I'm not going to take off points for her horse teeth. At least the poor dear realizes she dates dudes so dumb they need visual guides to her girl bits. When I see stuff like this I can't help but wonder..."WTHeck were you thinking?"

And when some 3rd grader goes around punching other kids in class, and screaming FU to teachers and knocking over and breaking things, and otherwise just goes so freaking berserk that an actual officer has to be called over? Can we see that footage, too?

Uncle Ted has been Uncle Ted for as long as I can remember. Thirty years or so?

Dementia bordering on amnesia.

I am also giddy about Trump. Not going to vote for him, but he is surely moving the conversation to the right. That means others more plausible candidates will need to weigh in on the topics.

Right now, Ben Carson still looks good.

1206,

Geez dude. Buy a helmet. You are easily offended, to say the least.

wordkyle said...

LOL 1255's right, you girls are pretty thin-skinned considering the stuff you fling at others. "Idiot Joe" and "Dumbass Joe" seemed redundant. "Lonesome Joe" was an old country song that I used to hear occasionally, and so "Lonesome Joe" it was. I sympathize with his losses, but when professional idiot and dumbass Joe Biden is your second-best candidate, you Democrats are gonna have a lot more to be offended at before it's all over.

Biden is an idiot! Who has not had tragedy in their lives? That does mean this idiot gets a free pass. He is probably sitting next to Chuck Schumer right now at the "Hair Club for Men" getting a new crop of hair plugs installed for his next run. Remember when he was caught plagarizing? Look it up.

We got big problems if Americans think Biden is a leader.

Wurdkyle said...

When we were teenagers... my little brother Wordy used to always refer to his right hand as "Lonesome Joe," so I'm a little confused by the way he uses that moniker here.

Denney Crane said...

I sure didn't like when I saw the child held in handcuffs, but as 12:41 commented, what do you do if the child cannot control his behavior and goes berserk? If the ADHD is to blame, corporal punishment will not correct the behavior. I read where 11% of students suffer from ADHD.

I don't have the answer, but if a child cannot be restrained, what do you do?

Anonymous said...

The only references I found to "idiot Joe" and "Dumbass Joe" on today's blog were made by.....WK....

What a surprise.


I don't think those derogatory terms have been used in quite some time to describe VP Biden because, frankly, Joe is a non-entity in the current state of political affairs.

1:36, for the record, that was a Double Fake Rage, not the real Rage.

Anyway, it's still classless. And he may be the second-best one we've got, but until someone at least as credible as another Bush is leading the R's, y'all have absolutely nothing to say about the D's.

wordkyle said...

353 - You'd be correct in describing Biden as a "non-entity" except that as Hillary's campaign seems to be self-destructing, murmurs of Biden as her replacement are making news. (And c'mon, Biden has done enough documented stupid stuff to justify some junior high namecalling.)

Your comments, although frequent, have lost any weight you perceive they carry.

It was so enjoyable the last few days of last week when there were no posts under your ID.

So how is that blog going for you? What's the name again?...Something about posting comments no one cares about?

Please refresh our memories.

Have you decided to turn down your SS payments and Medicare assistance since you don't want to be part of the 150+ million citizens sucking off the government teat?

936 - Okay, I'll let you have a taste of my attention, but just a taste. You've made a claim -- "He has been complaining about people on SS and medicare" -- that is untrue. Now you clamor for me to answer an untrue accusation to defend something I've never said. You try so hard to troll, then whine when your trolling doesn't work.

I'm very happy to debate points with those who have views that differ from mine. But I don't stop to argue with every piece of dog poop I get on my shoe. Now, scoot, you little imp.
