The Campaign For DA

11.09.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts




  • How much is wrong about this? There was a one car wreck into a telephone pole in Arlington at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday where the driver has  been charged a driver with intoxication manslaughter after a 5-year-old girl was killed and two more children and three adults were injured.
  • I'm a sports genius: I said TCU would go down against Oklahoma State. I'm a sports idiot: I said TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was the best player in the country. He threw four interceptions, and his Heisman chances just went up in flames. 
  • I'm the last guy to talk about NASCAR but there sure looked like a lot of empty seats at the Texas Motor Speedway yesterday.
  • Yesterday, I separated my right shoulder for the third time. I don't know if I'm embarrassed or impressed on how it happened. 
  • I think we will have a Chinese female exchange student staying with us over the holidays. It will be all can do not to ask her, "You aren't part of the Crazy 88s are you?" (That's a Kill Bill joke.)
  • A Jacksboro employee received 10 years probation for allegedly stealing $240,000 but she admitted her guilt and paid it all back.“Part of the equation in offering probation is she cooperated with law enforcement. She admitted to it,' [Assitant DA Jay] Lapham said. 'She didn’t fight us in getting a seizure and getting money from the property. She could have made it difficult. I’m not saying we would not have ultimately been successful, but she didn’t fight us. It would have been a delay in getting the money returned to the City of Jacksboro." Good lord. Read that statement again. So the government seized her property even though they had doubts about a criminal conviction? And she "didn't fight" and the government believes this is a good thing? You want a fight?: Get ready for the equivalent of the Thrilla in Manila.
  • "How did things ever get so far? I don't know. It was so -- unfortunate -- so unnecessary."
  • A judge in Austin is recovering from what seems to be an organized hit. 
  • Saturday Night Live had rocket ratings and Ben Carson is being attacked for lying. What in the world is going on with the GOP?

Crazy 88s are Japanese, not Chinese.

Crazy 88s = Japanese. There isn't any Chinese content in the film IIRC.

Texas Motor Speedway has run off a majority of the loyal fans that used to go and camp out. There is "No Limits" to the amount of restrictions and police harassment. We stopped going 4 years ago and we spent a LOT of money at the track on race weekends. The only way I can voice my opinion is with my wallet. I hope Eddie Gossage is getting an earful.

With their "make up the rules as they go" policy, NASCAR is rapidly running off the fans they have left. When Dale, Jr retires next year they'll lose half of those still watching.

Very transparent bait you threw out this morning, BG. The attacks against Dr. Carson are looking to be very weak/unfounded. Whoever made the attacks should be discredited.

Re Jacksboro--"Allegedly", but she admits GUILT, so what's the deal? Also sure don't see the state talking like they weren't sure about a conviction in this case!

Good lord. Read that statement again. So the government seized her property even though they had doubts about a criminal conviction?

SeƱor, I do not think the statement means what you think it means. Have you lost your everloving mind? The woman admitted guilt, and she cooperated - you think the taxpayers should piss off their money for a protracted process because you've mistakenly equated it to CF? Only in lawyer-think.

Ben Carson has documented his lies in his books and speeches. He may have been a fine Dr but he cannot take that skill as a justification for his rather questionable claims of politicians authority. He apparently lives in an imaginary world. To me he exhibits mental problems. Trump, on the other hand,is a fine showman and salesman (and a buffoon). That leaves Rubio, Cruz and Bush. You gotta be kiddin me!?!?

GOP is taking a page out of the democrat playbook. Find the worst candidate possible and make him our front runner. The other side gets a false sense of security thinking their is now way this could happen.

sit back and profit.

The woman in the Arlington crash had also been cited numerous times for failing to properly secure/restrain her chirrens while they were in the vehicle. That might have had a little bit to do with the charges being ramped up.

Yeah, but what are his chances against Baylor? (Better prepare for every team, not just the one you're most worried about.)

Yeah, try not to make any racially motivated jokes that you think are just the funniest thing in the world. I had a grandfather that used to love to do things like complain about Jap nails bending and loved to tell black people he wasn't a racist because his best friend was a nigger. He thought it was hilarious. The subjects of his jokes were not happy about them at all. A kid, especially one with a cultural background that you cannot comprehend in the least, may go back home with stories about that guy in Decatur who doesn't know the difference between the various Asian countries and is most likely a racist.

I'm not trying to be funny here. Seriously, don't be a dumbass and tell jokes with racial undertones to a kid.

BG, look up the recently-popular term "racial microaggression." The list of things you can do, say, or ask that won't offend somebody is getting shorter every day.

Oh, and I've heard the Crazy 88's were Japanese, not Chinese.

"justification for his rather questionable claims of politicians authority"

Trump is getting dogged about how he did on Saturday.

I didn't watch it, but it strikes me that no matter how badly he did, there's likely no other Presidential candidate EVER who would have pulled it off as well. Part of that is because he is technically an actor (he gets retirement from the Screen Actor's Guild) - but could you imagine Clinton or Obama or Bush trying something like this for a whole show?

Didn't Steve Forbes host back in the day?

11:11, What lies? A reporter interviewed a couple of old classmates,who are clearly liberals, and they didn't back up his account? His misuse of the word "scholarship" is not a lie! Many would classify a paid-for education as such. He obviously knew he would have to pay it back in service to his country, but that wasn't his path, and he was very honest about that and I respect him for it.

10:28 What does it say about society when we praise a man with a trophy room full of athletic achievements and deride another man who has one filled with academic achievements! I actually think his trophy room is a refreshing sign of a life well lived, in the service to his fellow man.

This stuff is all racist nonsense by the media, trying to Uncle Tom him in front of other African Americans who might vote for him. If they had done this to Obama all hell would have broken loose!

The racial micro aggression nonsense has led me to the same conclusion my grandfather had, don't mingle with other races. He always told me life was simpler if we all stuck to our own kind and limited our time around other races to only when necessary. I dismissed it as a young man, now I understand.

I've got some news for you Wordy, race jokes have always been on the list of things that weren't cool. Sorry you have to reword all of you nigger jokes. But in your party it's vogue to attach Hispanics nowadays, anyway.

12:03, I agree with you. I honestly don't get it. Carson was told (by someone who would know) that he could attend West Point, if he chose to. There was/is no tuition requirement. If Carson erroneously describes this scenario with the words "I was offered a scholarship to West Point," who the hell really cares? That doesn't change the fact that he could have attended West Point if he chose to.

If the issue is use of the word "scholarship," Carson has given examples of the word being used in reference to West Point in ads and news publications. One example is here.

Surely there is more for critics to go after than that!

Ask the guest is she knows Long Duk Dong. The Donger.

Boykin had a bad day,no doubt, and he probably did cost himself the Heisman as a result. But he also probably IS the best player in the country. TCU might have had a chance to overcome his picks if they were not starting Patterson's 2018 red shirt class in their secondary.

1252 - You obviously didn't read the article, pal, or else read it and didn't understand it. Your slipshod grasp and use of language is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about. You'd better go back and look at the link again, because you're in danger of being a racist and not even realizing it.

12:52 So Joe Biden was just telling a "nigger joke" when he described Obama as "the first mainstream articulate African American..."? Methinks you don't understand the whole racial micro aggression buffoonary that was invented by your own party!

You should study up though, no need to attack those for making overt racist statements anymore when you can just report Joe Conservative to HR next time he brings Big Red to the office Christmas party. Then poor Joe can become one of the famed "95 million", saddled to Obamacare and forced to switch to Red Rattler!

Being enormously proficient at an acquired skill, regardless of how remarkably complex that skill is, does not mean that you will be a good leader for our country.

Ted Williams was a nearly unparalleled hitter; Albert Einstein changed the way we understand the world; Wernher von Braun was literally a rocket scientist. Yet I wouldn't have wanted any of them to be POTUS.

555 - If you're not trolling, then you'd better go back and check your sources. While the media focused on childhood incidents of Mitt Romney and Ben Carson, the college record of the man who has been president for seven years remains a mystery. No one has ever bothered to ask him why.
