The Campaign For DA

11.13.2015

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • I'll post the Donald Trump rant against Dr. Ben Carson in a few moments. That may be the craziest moment in U.S. political history.
  • I told you I've been watching local morning news for the first time in a long time. I flipped over to Channel 8 this morning and saw the weather forecast where the guy was doing rain predictions for Sunday. For Tarrant County it was 2.62.  Think about that. The prediction is 2.62. Why not 2.624? Then they went to traffic and I saw a cop in full uniform giving me information about the latest crash.  Ladies and Gentleman, Idiocracy is not coming. It is here. 
  • The only thing that would have made Dez Bryant's rant yesterday (see post below) better would be if his pet monkey, Dallas, had been on his shoulder and equally angry and doing a monkey scream. 
  • I want to thank the players over in Bridgeport for the voter registration effort on the West Side. I grew up there, and the Hispanic community has been treated as second class citizens for years. 
  • College Game Day will be at Baylor this weekend. That's fantastic, but I have an extreme fear about the game against Oklahoma later that night. 
  • Mrs. LL is in Indiana on a high school band trip. It was a 16 hour bus ride -- with high schoolers. And people think I'm crazy?
  • I mentioned yesterday that there are two 1-9 teams in the Texas high school playoffs. I rode the bench in 1978 for a Bridgeport team that went 9-1 and didn't make the playoffs. 
  • There is an effort by the older Dallas Uptown residents to try and get the bars in that effort to be forced to close at midnight instead of 2:00 a.m. Good luck with that.
  • There is the craziest story from Plano about a deer running onto a highway and going through a windshield of a car and ending up in the backseat. But the oddest part might be that when some local news stations show a picture of the deer, they blur out his face. (And wanted the deer to simply wake up. It would be right out of Tommy Boy.)
  • I saw a former Tarrant County district judge (and a friend of mine since 1991 when we were both in the Tarrant County DA's office.) She was up at the Wise County courthouse when someone walked up to me and talked to me about a Random Thoughts bullet point that I had written that day. She said, with her great smile,  "I haven't read it yet. What are you pissed off about today?" 
  • I had never seen the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary called "One Night In Vegas" which features a Mike Tyson fight and the murder of Tupac on the Vegas strip. I watched it last night. Good lord, that was good. 
  • The crazy ISIS British guy, who somehow became known as "Jihadi John", who has beheaded people on video has been killed by a U.S. air strike. The Commander In Chief is doing his job. 
  • Uterus transplant? . . .

Just wait a few years until Dallas the monkey grows up and matures. He might be a good role model for Dez. He can walk Dez around the neighborhood and teach him when and where it is appropriate to fling feces!

Trump is a real estate manipulator, entertainer and an idiotic blowhard. Carson is an accomplished surgeon and is confused and uninformed on most everything else. The longer these clowns dominate the news the longer Rubio and Cruz can avoid real scrutiny. BG may be right that Kaisich may be the only actually electable Republican.

Its your party BG. But it was much more fun when it was small town thoughts and humor. Blogs for political rants are a dime a dozen.

I bet there is a car on blocks within 30 feet of that RTG.

Nothing says white trash like a woman (or perhaps man... it's hard to say in this case) with bleached hair, in a rebel flag bikini, laying on a camouflage blanket and couch cushions in the front yard.

God bless America!

Identification of the deceased is pending notification of the deer's next of kin.

Okay, the rainfall prediction is a little too specific, but what's so Idiocracy about the cop describing a crash?

The uterus transplant sounds wild, but I saw something earlier on FB about testicle donation!

Obama still does not have a plan to defeat Isis. He and his sorority sisters made a mess of the Middle East.

Dear Barry,

You really don't have a clue, do you? Many of your bullet points are designed to get a rise out of people and make assumptions that are racist, obtuse, and well, simply wrong. The remainder are personal reflections and beliefs that serve to explain why you got the way you are. While I am certain you are convinced of your own mental superiority, you daily display a disregard for truth and justice while proving you have little to no idea what you are talking about. Instead, you continue your misguided efforts toward forcing socialist notions of equality upon your own small portion of the universe. That fancy college education of yours? It was wasted.

With all that said, I think you could salvage what's left of your life and turn things around if you simply listened to some of the more reasonable readers of this blog. Good luck in your search for meaning!

Not an Obammy fan either, but I will give credit where it is due. Glad the sea levels have started to lower since the first day he was elected president.

Now if he would just give the green light to kill all of the rest of the JV team and not giving them 150 billion dollars and the ability to produce atomic weapons to be used against us and our allies.

I'll never forget the throat chop Shawn Oakman gave the Kansas State quarterback the Thursday before last. Shameful. No penalty? Hell, he should be back in prison.

This little Baylor run is going to end in a dumpster fire...I can't wait

Comments like 10:24 are one of the greatest things about this blog. An anonymously posted lecture to Barry about his blog is a fascinating and humorous phenomenon.

I especially love the narrative coming out of the media right now regarding Trump. As Michael Berry first hit upon- wherein the media portrays any Latino voting or leaning towards Trump as traitors to their lineage. When in truth, most of the later generation Latino's agree with Trump to a fault and are with him in believing they are being robbed of money and opportunity by allowing the wetbacks unfettered access to our economy and largess. Notice that Rubio and Cruz is starting to get a little of this misdirection thrown at them too--since you see, they are of Cuban heritage and must be brown version's of Uncle Tom.
Gotta love it..

As long as Herr Green leaves the front door open sans paywall or password, you can expect saner versions of the truth to filter in. Nice try at deflection but it is a fail.

Anonymous internet posting is a good thing. Barry's socialist POV is not.

Hey look, even the Greenmeister admits to being a confused man in a confused world. I'm just trying to help him out.

Does Barry's insurance cover psychological counseling? I'll bet it does
