The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Man, there are a lot ATM thefts in the metroplex, and a convenience store in Hurst almost was destroyed last night when one was taken from it -- that will happen when you just drive a vehicle straight into the store to break in. I'd like to be a fly on the wall when they try to get it open. (I think that was a scene in Breaking Bad.)
  • Fox News' Bill O'Reilly was really odd last night when, in connection with the HIV announcement of Charlie Sheen, he called it "legal mumbo jumbo" when legal "expert" guests Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lis Wiehl tried to explain whether it would he a crime in California if Sheen had infected someone with HIV. (It would only be a felony if Sheen "intended" to infect the person, they explained, and it would be a misdemeanor otherwise. That's not exactly a high tone legal mumbo jumbo concept that's hard to understand.)
  • The aforementioned Lis Wiehl is pretty hot. Fox News originated the Random Thought Girl being on screen while discussing politics. I just stole the idea. I apologize for this theft of intellectual property.
  • Today I might file the most unusual Motion ever in the 271st District Court. And not only will it include an interesting constitutional argument, but I'm fairly certain it will also be the first Motion filed in the history of the United States which references the "Salami Theory" and the book Bonfire of the Vanities in footnotes. 
  • Oil is at $41 a barrel. That's not going help the oil field come back anytime soon. It was at $105 in June of last year and at $144 in July of 2008.
  • TCU dropped in the Playoff Rankings yesterday after escaping horrible Kansas on Saturday. Hey, win out and you'll be in the Top 4. The same goes for Baylor. But I don't see either winning out.
  • I always get sucked into Lost in Translation. But I saw Bill Murray on Anthony Bourdain's CNN show over the weekend and he has really, really aged.
  • Countdown to the random guy in a Lexus commercial who just seems to easily and without stress present his wife with a new car.
  • I just saw a Black Friday commercial by NTB (National Tire and Battery.) I never thought of those products as part of Black Friday. Wait a second! Mrs. LL, I now know what you are getting for Christmas!! What's the PSI on those suckers on the Gangsta mobile? 
  • Gov. Abbott wants to "re-screen" Syrian immigrants who have already settled in Texas.  Maybe that screening can take place in a newly created Texas Syrian Concentration Camp sponsored by Pepsi or Doritos. (He also gave someone a government job as "State Refugee Coordinator." It sounds like she has been a government employee for 28 years.)

I expect lots of apologies and backtracking from the liberal press after the next terrorist attack on the US is performed by one of these Syrian "refugees".

But most likely, it will be blown off and not covered. We will not know if it was a "refugee" or "illegal alien".

Anonymous said...

Abbott is not resceening Syrian refugees because they haven't been screened. No data or records are available. Agencies sponsoring refugees are discriminating by not bringing in Christians who are not safe in refugee camps. ISIS claim they will sneak in with the refugees to kill us and our schools will probably be a target. They want to scare us and what better way than to kill our children. Sorry but Barry you need to think before you use words like consecration camps. My uncle fought in Germany bringing back photos.

Barry please inquire about how the Wise County Sheriff is retiring with only one year left in his term. It simply makes no sense at all considering how long he's been in power...or are you one of his good ole boys too?

Gov. Abbot is smart. Obama is dumb. I bet his security keeps him and his family out of shopping malls in the DC area over Thanksgiving weekend. I certainly am not about to visit one anytime soon.

TCU wins out and will be in the Final Four? Not at all. If Alabama, Ohio State or Iowa, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Florida, Clemson etc. also win out....nothing TCU can do about it even if they win out.

In case you are unaware, Syria has a reputation for not providing background documents for their citizens to US officials. So there is no good way to vet them. You get the people that Syria is trying to rid themselves from. You don't think there is a lot of dirt bags in those groups.

All those bible verses yesterday made me think of this:

Matthew 7:6

“Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces."

We've seen it with them already. We are bowing down to them, and they will turn on you.

To the folks who support closing the door to Syrian refugees, do you also support closing the door to European immigration?

Of the 8 Paris terrorists who conducted the attacks, 5/8 were European born or European citizens. 2/8 have not been identified. 1/8 entered Europe with the Syrian refugees via Greece.

Bill Murray is in his mid-60s. So yeah, he's "aged". Same as the rest of us.

Abbott should hold all Syrian males under the age of 50. When Donald Trump is elected, he can send them back.

Oh, it is so sad that you mention the tire pressure, even though you're making a joke, asking about tires. The psi has nothing to do with the decision-making process when purchasing tires. The only time it's relevant is when the tires need to be filled with air/gaseous substance of choice.
In this context, I believe the acronym is not normally capitalized. Otherwise, you're talking about a Greek consonant. Possibly a Korean rapper, not sure. After that one song he deflated like a Tom Brady football, so as far as I'm concerned it could be PSI.
And if any Person in the House knows the psi of tires - on any Vehicle in the Garage/Driveway - it should be you! Should be...

Neither TCU nor Baylor will make it into the top four with one loss. Not even if they win the conference. That was proven last year. Plus, there is no love for a private school that isn't named Notre Dame.
Somebody north of the Red will win the Big12, and they may not get into the playoff either. The schedule is fairly set and won't get changed unless one of the top four teams loses a game, or another game

2008 gas at the pump, 4.11/144 per barrel. June 2014 pump 3.68/105 per barrel.......now 1.89/41 per barrel at the 2008 rate gas should be $1.14 at the pump!

No chance a 1 loss Big 12 team gets in the CFP! Only scenario is if Okie State wins out, and even then I don't think that is a lock.

Do you not remember the Cuban boat people that turned out to be Castro emptying his prisons and sending them to Miami?

Same thing here with Syria.

9:24 There is another common denominator that you not so cleverly left out about the terrorists...and yes, I am opposed to their immigration, European born or otherwise!

"Oil is at $41 a barrel... It was at $105 in June of last year and at $144 in July of 2008."

Russia and Iran have to sell oil at $100 a barrel just to break even.

Thanks Obama

Obammy's compassion is to give all Muslim refugees better treatment than homeless veterans.

Let's see, the terrorist were native born but the GOP wants to ban refuges!!!!

"lets only admit Christians" will be a terrific poster line for ISIS in their recruitment program. The KKK were mostly Christians.

To score political points with the least educated of your base is not leadership.

"Oil is at $41 a barrel... It was at $105 in June of last year and at $144 in July of 2008." Thanks fracking. Can you imagine how low it would be if Obammy would let them drill on federal land?

It seems weird to me that Texas Christian University claims to be non sectarian. If Texas Christian is non sectarian as they claim then why did they excommunicate former Texas Christian football player, Tanner Brock? Tanner Brock told Mac The Big Hack Engel that Texas Christian sent him a letter excommunicating him. Non-sectarian institutions excommunicate people? Were the other football players and students involved in the TCU drug scandal excommunicated? Perplexing to say the least.

Why are they choosing to leaving their home country instead of living in a NATO built fortress to protect them in their own land?


Because they want to spread like a viral infection.

I've used the Malaprop signature before, I think, but it was especially fitting for that quote.
Consecration is just about the polar opposite of the subject referenced. But when you preface it with the phrase "think before you use words"? Priceless!

Donald Trump announced his running mate will be Ted Cruz. All we have to do is get our guns and fight off ISIS until Jan 2017. Then all hell will break loose on radical Islamic terrorist!

Pretty easy to offer up other people's families as killing victims. Doubt the "open door" policy would fly with someone if they knew in advance the killers were heading for their home address.

Heard one person say that if Russia, France and the US got together and bombed Syria, this mess would be over. Truman did it and yes innocents died and were horribly maimed, but it wasn't strung out forever and ever. The idea of war is repulsive of course, but if that decision is made, war needs to be DECLARED by both houses of congress.
