The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • The Chinese exchange student is now in the house and, once she arrived, I learned she was actually from Taiwan. That caused me to do some quick research which only led me to great confusion since Taiwan is part of China. Does that make her Chinese? 
  • She is a sweet and respectful girl. But you know the first thing she wanted to know? Our wifi key. And she spends most of her time staring at her phone. She's basically an American. And she speaks English better than most of the people I know -- including me. 
  • Wait a second. No, she's not like an American! She can speak a different language! She is of a different religion! She doesn't look like me! She doesn't think like me! She has penetrated our borders! She might be a terrorist!!!!! Someone call Homeland Security!!!
  • I'm going to beat her down with so many questions over the next week. If she doesn't eventually turn to the Two Girls In The House and ask, "What's that guy's deal?", I'll be very disappointed.
  • I watched five of the six episodes of Fargo's Season Two this weekend. It may be the greatest  TV show I've ever seen. And I will have to got back and watch it again because I know I'm missing so much. 
  • I also watched the first episode of Amazon Prime's show The Man In The High Castle. I was enthralled. The premise is that the U.S. lost World War II. Now, in 1962, the West Coast of the U.S. is controlled by the Japanese and the East Coast is controlled by the Germans. The middle of the country is a "neutral zone" which is occupied by minorities and Jews. Throw in the fact that there is a revolutionary group trying to distribute an 8 mm news reel that shows that the Allies actually won the war and my head almost exploded.  I have no idea what is going on.  (Oh, and the Japanese fear the Germans will drop an A-bomb on them once the peace loving Hitler dies. Yep, he is alive.) And that was just the first episode. 
  • I mentioned last week that I was going to file the craziest Motion in the history of ever (and it would reference Bonfire of the Vanities and the Salami Theory in footnotes.) I did it, and here it is. It will probably only interest some Wise County lawyers, the Wise County Sheriff's Office, some Tarrant County prosecutors, lawyers and judges (especially once they see the name of the prosecutor). Oh, and maybe the Wise County Messenger or Star-Telegram if they need some content on this holiday week.  What? Someone is fighting against the dismissal of a criminal case? Edit: I forgot to mention that I'm not being paid a dime for that Motion or for anything else that occurs in this case in the future. 
  • But what do I know? 
  • I also watched Lucy this weekend. It is a movie about what happens if humans could access all of their brain capacity. It was a little hokey but the concept was fascinating. 
  • "Romans 13 teaches that Government's role is different than man's duty: it is to protect citizens & ensure justice. Texas will abide." - Greg Abbott tweet yesterday. I take great comfort in that. "The Dude [also] abides." (Man, I miss Rick Perry.)
  • Sports: (1) I said there was no way Baylor would beat OSU and they did with their third string quarterback, (2) I said there was no way TCU would beat OU and they would have if the two point conversion pass had been six inches higher, (3) TCU coach Gary Patterson always implies Baylor's Art Briles has players that are thugs but that cheap shot hit by TCU's Ty Summers on OU quarterback Baker Mayfield was borderline criminal, (4) I had a buddy place a $100 bet in Vegas for me in August on the over/under for TCU's total wins this season. If Baylor beats TCU on Friday, I win. And Baylor is only a 1.5 favorite based upon the Vegas' opening line.
  • The M&M comparison on the Syrian Refugees is beyond dumb. The attempted analogy is this: We don't need to take in Syrian Refugees because one in a hundred might be a terrorists. So the simpletons make this analogy: If you had one hundred M&Ms in front of you and one of them might be poisonous, would you eat any of them? Sheesh. This isn't about candy. Let's put it this way: What if you had one hundred scared and homeless individuals in front of you and all they wanted to do is live in the United States? Would you turn all those tortured souls away because one of them might be a terrorist?
  • You had more of a risk to your safety by getting into your car this morning than from a possible Syrian refugee terrorists.

In a similar circumstance, I asked a Korean student staying with us if he wanted to go to the Korean food market and do grocery shopping and cook Korean supper for us one night. One of the best days. Learned a lot about the culture; won big points with the kid and the Spouse in the House since we didn't have to cook; and had a great meal. Enjoy.

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States. It's 11:00 AM on a Wednesday.


He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!"

The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican and here illegally."

The man goes on and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America."

The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese and here on a Green Card that expired two years ago."

The new arrival walks farther and stops the next person he sees, then shaking his hand, and says, "Thank you for wonderful America!” That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East. I am not American. It was easy to get here via Arizona."

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"

She says, "No, I am from Africa here on an Education Green Card that expired 10 years ago."

Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

The African lady checks her watch and says: "Probably at work."

This has to be the stupidest motion I have ever seen. If I was the prosecutor, I would proceed as follows: not conduct a voir dire, instead tell the panel that the state tried to dismiss this case and tell them I'll take the first 12. Then, in my opening, tell the jury that I have no intention of putting on evidence, and that this is nothing more than a way for the defense attorney to make money. I would then stand up and rest, and read a book as the defense put on their case (assuming they didn't ask for a directed verdict).

Serious BG, how much did this poor sap pay you to write this drivel? Whatever it was, he grossly overpaid.

wordkyle said...

"one hundred scared and homeless individuals...all they wanted to do is live in the United States" Pure assumption on your part. Many are opportunists, even from other countries, who are looking to make more money than they can at home. As for the real refugees, they want not to die more than anything else. Once that need is filled, they will seek to take advantage of the new environment as much as possible, including the inevitable government handouts. They will then seek to make their new home as much like the old one as possible, including their tribal prejudices, penchant for violence, and overwhelming desire to kill Jews. America has quite enough of its own issues without importing more.

Your entire argument is flawed in so many way. First and foremost, the consequences if you're wrong could be catastrophic, with potentially thousands of deaths. (Other people's deaths, for which your point of view would be responsible. Again, a price which you think is reasonable for others to pay.)

Second, You act as though the only other option to full, unfettered, and unvetted dispersal across America is to return them to the ISIS thugs. Can you not think of any other options? How about relocating them to other countries that would be closer to their own culture and geography? How about keeping them contained in a single location until they can be thoroughly investigated? (Counterfeit Syrian passports are a hot item, I hear.)

You make vast assumptions based on the good intentions of the Syrian refugee group, when that hasn't proven itself at all.

Brief History Lesson.

Group of people arrive in a foreign land, with no intention of adopting the culture or traditions of the land to which they've "immigrated." The "immigrants" are initially granted assistance by the indigenous people to such a degree the "immigrants" not only survive but thrive resulting in a population boom and vastly more "immigrants" arriving in the new country. The "immigrants" demand and go to war to assure that their cultures and way of life become the accepted way of life in the land the "immigrants" have conquered.

Fast forward a couple of hundred years, through decades of war, famine, suffering and genocide to find the remaining indigenous people in concentration camps/reservations.

Yes, that is the most recent history of North America aka United States of America. If you don't think it can happen again, do a bit more historical research and you'll find it's happened since the dawn of man. Alexander the Great did it and it happened to the Romans when they FAILED to require people to adhere to the sound advice of "When in Rome do as the Romans."

As for the Syrean "refugees," the US decided to stay out of the Syrian conflict when there wasn't a refugee issue and we have no business deciding, at this late date, to get involved now.

If you doubt for a moment it is the intent of Muslims to take over the United States as well as the rest of the world just read the facts.

Your ignorance about Taiwan is remarkable. It has been a separate country from the mainland since the Nationalists lost the civil war with the Communists (kinda like if all the rebels want to Cuba after Civil War). Taiwan/Formosa was once in the U.N. as "China". Now it is mainland China in the U.N as China. WW 3 nearly started over who owns Taiwan. And you wonder if they are Chinese? Your visiting student may wonder if Wise County inhabitants are actually American.

Syrians would love the Lubbock area, it is very similar to Syria. Flat and surrounded by nothingness.

When the Europeans invaded the country and took it from the Native Americans, it is save to say that the Europeans had superior weaponry and a superior societal structure. Plus bringing a few good diseases and booze to the "New World", plus superior numbers, may have contributed to the success of the invasion. Syrians, or any other country for that matter, would not have those advantages.

"(Counterfeit Syrian passports are a hot item, I hear.)"

"Pure assumption on your part."

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

So now you got people hating M&M's, not investigating crimes against them, not giving them jobs, cops shooting at them for no reason and the message is lost.

The communists drove the old government and its supporters over to Taiwan, right? Taiwan considers itself to be the real China and what we call China has considered it to be a rebel province ever since the communists took over.

That might not be right, because most of what I know about Taiwan comes from an old Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd) song:

"And in the Spring of '48
Mao Tse-Tung got quite irate
And he kicked that old dictator Chiang
Out of the state
of China."

I fully admit that the reason I do not want refugees is out of hatred and not fear. I realize the odds of an attack are low, I just hate these people, plain and simple.

I see other humans for what they are and I realize that most Muslims don't commit terror attacks but I believe most silently support it when it happens. So I see the refugee situation as more symbolic and allowing them in is just a slap another slap in the face. I am not religious btw, so spare me the bible lessons. I'll just side with Christians when the shit goes down because the Muslims are just a vile a nasty people.

Throughout history ethnic groups of people prevailed in war based on their IQ. Countries with high IQ: China, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, France. Countries with low to moderate IQ: Mexico, all of Africa, South America, Middle East (except Israel). If you cross breed low with high the average IQ drops. You cannon be a world power with an average IQ under 100. Last year was the first year that Hispanics made up over 50% of the students in Texas public schools. So the average IQ of Texas is dropping. There are some very smart people in Mexico, but they have a high percentage of Spanish DNA.

I'll take the bait! It will impact the balance of the world's current religions in a massive way. First, Tony will setup his church headquarters in Selma Alabama and promise free "Tony Phone's" to everyone who is willing to switch over to Romotology. This will convert a large number of African Americans and liberals. Secondly, he will make Greg Hardy his head deacon. This will bring in the Muslims and white fundamentalist Christians (they both love assault rifles and misogyny). He will then cut a deal with ESPN and the NFL to have football on everyday of the week. This will bring in the working class (Easter and Christmas) Christians. To court white Catholics he will make Jared Fogle a posthumous church elder. He will get the remaining Catholics by promising them unlimited Cowboy or Raider gear and then chest bumping the Pope! Then he will nail down the mega church crowd by installing massive fountains, the world's largest cross at Jerrah World and delivering sermons with platitudes like, "maybe you recently lost a playoff game, maybe you or someone you know has an injury, maybe you have to deal with a terrible general manager on a daily basis"! Next he will use his power to make polygamy legal and require everyone to go door knocking. This will pull in Mormons and Jehovas' Witnesses. Lastly he will hire a massive team of lawyers (all named Steinberg) to run it all and then you got the Jews.

Once he has all this locked down he will create a series of books, tapes and auditing machines you purchase through his multi level marketing outfit. He will use the auditing program to keep tabs on high ranking Romotologists and hire Bellicheck to run it. Of course, Bellicheck will get caught cheating the auditing system, the ensuing fallout will be a mass suicide via Cowboy Kool-aid, and the Buddhists and Hindus will settle the west and restore peace to the world forever more!

Hey 4:35, You can't trust those Canadians. Don't forget that we once had to fight a war with them when a small town police chief insulted their beer! They are extremists.

435 - The textbook reflects the culture of which the Syrians (and those posing as Syrians) are a part, thus confirming my earlier point.

411 - Why? You won't read those either. You remain ignorant by choice.

Again, why are you guys so confident that the Syrian refugees (or, more precisely, those posing as refugees) don't present a danger? How do you arrive at that opinion?

I will be surprised if you post this.

Regarding your question regarding your guest from Taiwan and whether she is chinese, one conclusion could be drawn that earning a law degree from Baylor University does not necessarily guarantee that one is educated or well informed. Coach must not have taught much world geography, american history post-WII, or american history during the Vietnam War and may explain some of the ridiculous conclusions and comments you make pertaining to current events. Speaking of your guest, why not treat her like a guest instead of beating "her down with so many questions.? Is she a guest or a toy to amuse you?

As for the risk of driving versus the risk of terrorists sneaking into our country as Syrian refugees, risks would be lowered if somehow we could get more drunks and others incapacitated off of the road.

Since you brought it up, even though the president likes to distort the facts, it is hard to get around that 70% of the Syrian refugees hitting Europe now are unaccompanied males. Where are the children and women? Why are these men leaving women and children behind and not fighting for their own country? Are these men looking to assimilate into our culture?

Nothing personal. Please explain.

Barry, your motion reminds me of a recent DWI trial that I had with a drugged defendant. I had asked for blood, and he refused, as was his right. (He said that he wanted to give breath, but that wasn't what I was interested in.) I looked at it, and decided that his performance on the SFSTs was so bad, I didn't need blood, so I booked him in based only on what I had, without bothering a judge for a blood draw warrant.

At trial, Counsel for the defense hammered away at how I had neglected to get this ONE simple little piece of evidence, which (as he told it) could have shown that his client was completely innocent of the DWI charge. He made it sound like I was being negligent in my duties. "After all, it only takes, what? 20, 30 minutes, to get a blood draw warrant?" he asked. I raised my brows and inquired if that was his experience, because in mine, it had been longer.

It was an interesting turn-- the defense attorney wanted me to have overturned his client's refusal, by having gotten an order from a judge for his blood.

I just shrugged and said, "I didn't need it. The SFSTs were bad enough, I didn't care to bother the judge at home at night."

The jury agreed, and the guy was found guilty. But give the attorney his due-- it was an imaginative defense. (I shook his hand after trial, as I'll do when they're polite and professional.)

"You had more of a risk to your safety by getting into your car this morning than from a possible Syrian refugee terrorists."

Very false premise.

Anyone can mitigate their risk of driving or not driving a car.

The US Government is not giving us any way to mitigate the risk of allowing possible terrorists into the US.

The Bible does not work in this argument. None of the liberal memes work. Face it, this is a risk that does not have to be undertaken in any circumstance.

Actually, Taiwan hasn't been part of China since 1895. And it was actually a Dutch colony long before it was Chinese.

Wow! Look at all of the comments by anonymous, this must be troll central. So what if a half dozen terrorists are in with the refugees and go to a gun show and buy AKs and kill 150 or so at a mall. That's a drop in the bucket compared to the 33,000 Americans who will be gunned down by their own countrymen this year.

Don't villify the refugees because they are Muslims. In the long run they are no worse than than any of the other whacko people who believe in gods and afterlives. The only Valhalla anyone will see is the here and now and three quarters of the world's population is screwing it up for the rest of us because they greedily believe they deserve some big reward for acting like civilized animals.

Progressives cannot see the truth on the dangers of open borders. Political correct or critical theory is used to deceive and hide the truth by suppressing opposition protected under the first amendment. Any speech against the refugees would be considered hateful, racial or immoral. The dangers including radical Islamic terrorist killing us and spreading fear throughout our homeland, the impact on schools, health care services, housing and increase in welfare costs. Demographic shifts impact voting patterns and that is key to where the refugees will be resettled. For the progressive who is not a Christian, a study of the Koran understanding the radical Islamic fundamentalist war on the freedoms of our society, the suppression of women, the hatred of gays the enslavement of anyone who is not a radical Muslim is the victory in their conquest of the western civilization. We may have a lot of people killed in gun violence and mass shootings by the mentally ill; but to allow free passage into our towns and cities is insane. Satan is the great deceiver and the results is death.

Birchez,

So is that your given, "Christian" name?

Your presentation is absolutely false also. How do you know that terrorists will stop at 150? How do you know they will target a mall, and only a mall?

Was your point that guns are bad, or terrorists are just as good as we are?

mzchief said...

To Birchez...

Really! You actually believe, since people in the US kill each other what difference does it make if another 150 or more are murdered by non-US citizens?

I take you at your words, on your blog profile, that you were "irreparably traumatized when a US Army tank company's middle-of-the-night mobilization to confront the East German/Russian tanks supporting the walling of Berlin...," woke you. Most normal people actually figure a way to work through events that "traumatized" them some 54 years ago. Especially events in which they didn't play a significant roll much less involved them in any manner.

Based on your comment at 11:09, you seem to have no value for human life and honestly believe that your psychotic view of humans being nothing more "civilized animals" should result in as many of them as possible being needlessly murdered. That being the case, your support of "refugees" who have no interest in assimilating to the customs and traditions of the nations taking them in is your way of assisting in being rid of people you dislike.

You need to seek professional help, NOW!

I would be curious to know just how many of those Syrian refugees really "want" to come to the USA. I'd bet not many. Those that actually might want to come can go through the proper channels to get here in my opinion. Why can't we take care of our veterans and homeless before we take on any more outsiders?

Yes Birchez, and since you didn't provide your name, just a blogger handle, you are a one of the trolls here in troll central.

Hypocrite.

Post your name and city you live in when commenting and you can cross yourself of your troll list.
