The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • What?
  • DPS, in order to keep better statistics, will have troopers actually ask the driver their race during a traffic stop. Oh, that will go well. (Not to mention the driver has absolutely no obligation to answer. But they do have every right to be offended.) This order, of course, came from DPS Director Steve McCraw who seems to embarrass DPS every chance he gets.
  • Wise County has had seven tornadoes this year?
  • Donald Trump wants to have a U.S. database composed of the identification of every Muslim in the United States. And they would be required to register. Didn't Nazi Germany require every Jew to register as well?  Good lord, is this real life?
  • And remember he wants to deport every illegal alien, as well.  That's small government at its finest! Yet, he leads in the polls!
  • What a crazy case: A Fort Worth oil and gas man received a life sentence for gunning down his girlfriend's  ex-husband in Benbrook. One month ago he didn't seem to concerned when he tweeted: "I own Minerals in Western Okla. That I would Sale. If interested, pattonenergy@gmail.com or 817-994-1961., Thanks JohnnyP"
  • Looks like Santa Claus was putting the move on the ladies yesterday in Bridgeport.
  • Hey, what was the purposed of the vaccination that kids in the 1960s had to get which caused a scab and then a permanent scar on your shoulder? 
  • It looks like The Family Unit is going to have a Chinese student stay with us over the Thanksgiving holidays. It's going to be a girl. If it would have been a boy, I would have had him go up to the Senior in the House for the first time and re-create a scene from Sixteen Candles by asking, "What's happening hot stuff?"
  • I took a quick glance at an episode of Fargo last night but didn't have time to watch the whole thing. I like the feel of the show. I may go on a watching binge tomorrow when the temperatures plummet.
  • Sports: (1)With TCU's quarterback banged up, I haven't heard anything about Decatur's former quarterback who is on the team. What happened? He was in the battle for second string in the Spring and now he's not in the top three. (2) I can't imagine Baylor winning at OSU on Saturday night with a banged up QB, and I can't believe the line is Baylor +1. (3) I can't imagine TCU beating OU, either, (4) But just when you  think there is no way a team will win, it happens.

Smallpox, I have that scar. Polio vaccine was administered via sugar cube starting in the early 60s. Before that it was a shot, but I don't recall the scar being significant.

Yes, the scar is a smallpox vaccination, not a polio vaccination. Take it from a 1955 model! I have one.

Wordy, I think you got it backwards. I think the original Salk vaccine was administered in a sugar cube. The shot came later. I tried to get out of the shot because I had polio in '53, didn't work. I had no problem with the earlier sugar cube. Oh, by the way, the vaccine was named the inventor Dr. Jonas Salk.

a permanent scar on your shoulder

It likely did not leave a scar unless you are prone to keloids or hypertrophic scarring.

I did have a scar from a boot camp vaccination. The corpsman giving that particular vaccination was using an air gun and he flinched when he shot me with it. It sliced my shoulder pretty good.

922 - You forced me to look it up to make sure I remembered correctly. According to Wikipedia, the fount of all knowledge:

"The first polio vaccine was developed by Jonas Salk in the 1950s. It consists of an injected dose of inactivated (dead) poliovirus....A second polio vaccine, this one oral, was developed by Albert Sabin using attenuated (weakened) poliovirus. Human trials of Sabin's vaccine began in 1957, and it was licensed in 1962."

Really? Look, we all realize you have a permanent hard-on for all things LE, but with the current clamor from all the agitator groups about profiljng, coupled with the Dolezal/Jenner types who want to pick their own box - yeah, it'll be a cluster for sure, but in the absence of data, what the hell do you suggest to be able to analyze whether profiling is increasing or decreasing.

I know in your profession, you're only required to criticize - you don't have to actually solve problems or provide answers, but much of the rest of the world does.

Anonymous said...

Today's RTG could have used the polio vaccine!

I would recommend offering the exchange student a chance to cook a traditional Chinese dish. We have some excellent Asian markets in the metroplex. Just make sure and keep an eye on the family pets if the dish includes a protein. And maybe don't show her this blog, like ever

I plan on telling the DPS that I am Black Dutch Wookie if they ask my race!!!

If 1% of Muslims support terrorism then we have to follow Trump's advise. It is survival of the fittest. Probably when a football stadium with a sold out crowd gets bombed then there will be a wake up call. It will happen and Barry will come over to what he considers the dark side. It is sad that that many people must die first.

You realize polio has nothing to do with missing limbs, right?

And on a different topic, if a DPS officer asks you what your race is, just say, the Indianapolis 500.

1:59 You saying that nobody with polio ever missed a limb..ha! Calm down Francis, it was just a silly joke.

You do realize the Indianapolis 500 has nothing to do with a person's race, right?

Anonymous said...

I believe there may be some terrorist incident with radical Muslims involved in the US. So the proposed answer is to label and track all Muslims? What about the mass terror committed by good old American white or black guys? Bet there will be some of those, too. So should we apply the same logic to those groups? If you get scared enough about all the evil possibilities you willingly give up your rights and freedoms. The result may be an Un-American America that you won't like.

1:59 Actually polio amputation is fairly well documented! You might want to do bit of research before inserting your foot in your mouth, it might catch diarrhea.

Katy Anders said...

Males, ages 16-40, regardless of race or religion, are responsible for nearly all violent crime in this country. If we just lojacked them all (and got them girlfriends), we could probably come close to wiping out violent crime in this country.

Religious discrimination is not the answer to violent crime. Racial discrimination is not the answer.

Gender discrimination is.

Do people still get polio in the United States?
No, the United States has been polio free for more than 30 years, but the disease is still occurring in other parts of the world. It would only take one traveler with polio from another country to bring polio back to the United States.

If the US has been polio free for 30 years, amputations resulting from polio could not be considered common.

Smallpox made the scar, polio injections came first, then sugar cubes. They held Sugar Cube Sunday and in Bridgeport, after church we all went to the auditorium (then the brand new BHS auditorium)and got the vaccine.
When they gave the shots, we all walked from the elementary school to the clinic (by the post office). Everyone stood in line and got the polio vaccine. Parents could opt out of that torture by taking you to your private doctor. Thank you, Mom! I still had to go to the 'shot clinic', but got to sit in the lobby and wait for Mom to take us back privately for our shots. Dr. Huddleston gave ours. All the nurses were helping with the lines of crying kids!

The US has a data base on every American so what's the problem with including the Mooslims? And Donald Trump did not say that we need to have a data base on Mooslims.

Anonymous said...

Read that Donald Trump is tapping into the white working middle class that no longer can identify with America. Democrats depend on the younger voters and minorities. Establishment republicans risk losing the election by going after Donald Trump, who is 100% right to have a data base on every refugee from the middle east. Obama is resettling them without being vetted in southern red states. The governors don't know how many or where. And for all those quoting bible verses, there are requiring we bring them in to disrupt our culture and society. We must protect our children at home. Resettlement in the area in safe zones will allow the Syrian people to return to their homeland and families that remained after the conflict is over. The cost to us taxpayers will be 1/10th compared to putting them on welfare and food stamps here. Sooner or later the federal Reserve will be forced to stop printing money. All the refugees and immigrants with no stake in our country will rebel when we can't feed them. Our country will fall into chaos and a deep depression. Unlike during the last one, we are no longer an agricultural based economy so people will rob and kill for food. We can't overload our society with non productive members that can't sustain themselves. The reason refugees, 78% young men are fleeing to Germany are for economic reasons, not refugees from war. Safe refugee camps are there but they move on for money, jobs and housing promised by traffickers. If only liberals would see we can't continue to open the borders to all and give them welfare. Donald Trump gets it and white working class gets it. Now we need the upper income republicans who like cheap labor to get it.
