The Campaign For DA

10.20.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • At first I wasn't paying attention, but I think I witnessed the greatest moment at a hearing yesterday when a lawyer asked an officer what "brought your attention to the defendant." The answer? "His gladiator shoes." (Picture me looking at my iPad and then slowly looking up with a confused smile as those words rolled out.) He went further and said that footwear was associated with "lewd" behavior.  You know what I thought? "Are you not entertained!!" Yes. Yes, I was. 
  • Headline that made my head explode: "Southlake life coach accused of bilking U.S. out of $26 million." Once you get past "life coach" and the amount of money you realize that the government got screwed.  But wait. There's more! The second paragraph of the story starts with "As a self-professed firewalker . . . . " (So she might not even be an actual firewalker?) This world is getting crazy.
  • Donald Trump still leads the Republican party race with 27%.  TRUMP! 
  • Trump has so much money in the bank that he doesn't even have to raise any funds but he's still collected over $5 million from people who support him.  (But that's nothing for a presidential race. Ted Cruz has begged for money and has collected over $60 million.)
  • I wonder who is more powerful: A "drug lord" or a "kingpin"? And which name is cooler?
  • I feel pretty good about my last Crazy Sports Weekend when Norm Hitzges does a whole segment ranting and raving about how he saw New Orleans Saints game and an LSU game last weekend. (Sports brag and cue the orchestra music: I did that four years ago.) 
  • Mrs. LL turned into Woody Harrelson in Game Change last night as she pointed her finger at me and barked out  instructions and guidance.  And I'll be dang if I didn't look at her and say, "You're right."
  • But we had a great moment as I calmed her down by saying, "Yo! Yolanda! What does Fonzie say!? What does Fonzie say!?"
  • For some reason I watched an old episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Great, great stuff. Larry David is the kind of guy who would hear "gladiator shoes" and slowly look up. 
  • Mrs. LL's mother texted her yesterday after she saw my last bullet point. It read, "So your husband is retiring and going to start a meth lab?" (She has a great and wicked sense of humor.) 
  • As many issues as current Dallas DA Susan Hawk has, her predecessor continues to catch heat.

By the strangest coincidence, I also happen to be a self-professed actual firewalker. Sadly, I'm also a self-professed procrastinator, and haven't gotten around to organizing the first public display of my abilities. But if you come around on a hot summer day, you might catch me practicing on asphalt while I go barefoot to the mailbox.

A kingpin outranks a drug lord.
As for cooler names, drug czar takes the crown so to speak, although it's the antithesis of the others.

Pretty chicken shit by the cop if you ask me. What shoes are safe to wear in public without being harassed? What if a cop doesn't like cowboy boots, am I safe? The police state is upon us!

I like today's RTG, but my gut tells me she's not quite legal age yet.

Idiots posting at LiberallyLean have made that comment for years and you've never said they had a wicked sense of humor. Oh, I forgot that everything you're personally involved with is the bestest of all time!!!!

And Trump didn't ask for a penny and that made your lib-tard head explode, didn't it?

Barry is selling LL to google. Then he's going to take the money and retire, leaving us with inferior, Disneyfied RTGs.

Yea, those firewalkers/life coaches make the best tax preparers. They sure do.

What's your big announcement?....that you were wrong?

That would about cover it

I'm predicting yet another of the patented Barry Green tease, yet fail to ever deliver announcements. Much like the recent "I just witnessed the greatest injustice ever perpetrated in Wise County history. I'll be writing about it shortly."

I'm now a bit jaded to Barry's promises of forthcoming announcements.

Big announcement is that he is RAGE and MZCHIEF all trolled into one.

Sources have confirmed that BG will be closing his law practice and opening a psychotherapy/life coach/tax prep/pet sitting/political consulting/sports commentary business in Southlake. An official announcement is expected later this week.

Its nice to see that Decatur ISD priorities straight. The indoor practice facility is a must. What a joke this board and supt is. And BTW who put the bond together that the numbers were so far off? And why we are at it lets give the basketball coach a raise and the AD's wife another job that isn't needed.

Barry, Prager is in Weatherford today. You should drive down there and apologize in person.

Where and When? Not on his schedule.

Bear said...

Prager is scheduled to be in Waco on Wednesday at Baylor U.

Barry, If you miss Prager in Weatherford today, you can catch him in Waco tomorrow. He's going to be speaking at Baylor.

Hey Bu...

I bought us that acreage in CO. I sent a soil sample off to A&M. The results should be back any day now.

Ooops....I was supposed to keep this quiet, wasn't I?
