The Campaign For DA

12.03.2015

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • Well we have another act of mass violence . . . once again by a government employee who is a U.S. citizen.
  • Just because the California murderers have Middle Eastern names, Fox News seemed to big over backwards yesterday trying to speculate that is was ISIS related. 
  • And why does Fox employee Mark Fuhrman as a crime expert? He is the most famous incompetent detective in U.S. history.
  • The point is, we don't know what motivated the California Killers.  Fox and Friends had a former FBI guy on today who said he would "rule out" simple "work place violence" because, in part, "how many people have AR-15s?" Heck, I know three people with AR-15s who are as conservative as the day is long.
  • SBPD Chief Jarrod Burguan gave a press conference around midnight. He's smart. He's no fool. I was impressed.
  • I went to a funeral yesterday where Acts 20 was discussed (it was pretty funny - the son of the deceased mom had used it to instruct the person conducting the service to "keep it short"). But, as much as I know about the Bible, I'm not sure I had heard of Paul raising someone from the dead. Is that the way that most people interpret that passage?
  • 660 Answer's Mark Davis' support of Donald Trump and his belief that Trump could beat Hillary is disturbing. And credit for Fox 4's Tim Ryan confronting him this morning on TV by asking, "You want someone with no self control to be the Commander and Chief?" (And then I turned on the radio and heard Davis emphatically refer to the California shootings as "Global Jihah".)  Good lord, man. 
  • "Reports: Internet-famous ‘adorable drug kingpin’ [based upon book in photo] busted in College Station is daughter of DEA agent".  My head exploded once again. 
  • If you watch any of the business channels, you'll see from time to time Chris Faulkner who is a big fan of fracking and the president of Breitling Energy. I've always been suspicious of that guy especially because he has owned at least one failed business and comes across, to me, as a snake oil salesman. I checked Breitling's stock price.  It has gone from $15.00 a share in 2011 to yesterday's sensational price of 5.4 cents a share.
  • Man, this newspaper cover is full throttle . . .

Facts that you did not know: 1) neighbors reported middle eastern men coming in and out of the home of the shooters before the incident 2) shooters carried out a well plan attack using military weapons and wore a camera that can be used to train terrorist 3) testimony from co-worker the shooter got up from table leaving his jacket on the floor, bomb went off when co-worker was in bathroom 4) shooter had traveled to middle east staying for one month

Work place violence as the motive is like saying the two were really ticked off for not getting what they wanted at the baby shower given by the county employees or they really didn't like going to a Christmas party.

Liberals believe they are immune to all this, especially elites who have never worried about money or anyone harming their family. Useful idiots for those wanting to take away our freedoms.

Thoughts and prayers? How about we have thoughts on how to fix the problem and prayers for forgiveness for not taking action sooner?

Evangelical Christianity has been ruined by the faulty end-times theology that is less than 150 years old. Since they all think God is coming back "any day now," there's no urgency or even desire to work to make things better, or to follow the example of Christ's kingdom. American Evangelicals would rather let the world burn, because that's a sign that their "redemption draweth nigh." Perhaps some of them should read the Bible and how Jesus instructed that we should live, as opposed to listening to Osteen/Young/Morris/etc. tell them how much money God's going to give them if they just give enough "seed money" to the "church."

Mark Furhman is actually very qualified. His only sin was he used the N word while reading a movie script out loud with an unscrupulous woman who was recording him several years before he testified he never used the N word before.

I bet even BG has used the N word before in similar contexts.

You forgot one thing about the US citizen / government employee; he was and his wife were Muslim.

This was a terrorist attack carried out by Muslims! Those are the facts, so why do liberals come out in droves to defend the Islamic terrorists but attack those who pray for the victims. The only call to action here is to restrict the rights of Muslims and to monitor them heavily, raid their Mosque's and root out the evil. Also, I don't care if you have been a citizen all your life, if you're a Muslim your terror spree wasn't "homegrown"!

I wasn't setting around cheering like the liberals were when the nut job shot up the abortion clinic. I was horrified and I think the government has every right to rip a new ass to supremacist and white nationalist groups whether they were directly involved or not. It is time to cut the shit, we know who the radicals are on both sides, we need to profile accordingly and show these nuts they can't hide behind religion anymore.

mzchief said...

it is still against the law to murder people. There are laws FORBIDDING the building and possession of bombs. yet the two murderers in San Bernardino, CA had been building bombs in their home. Perhaps, having a few armed victims would have stopped the murder or lessened the body count of innocent victims. Even the prospect of a couple of people, other than the murderers. being armed could have stopped this massacre. Democrats/Liberals go on and on and on about more gun laws and NEVER stop to realize, COUNTLESS laws are broken when someone commits mass murder.

Where people don't have guns, such as England, murderers use knives, axes, hammers and bombs. ISIS/Radical Islamic Terrorists are the modern day version of the Irish Republican Army aka IRA. They prey upon soft targets and use bombs when they can't get guns.

As for the prayers people offer. I've never understood why Christians/people feel the need to publicly announce, to random strangers, they're praying for a specific event/person. Just STFU and pray, if prayer makes you feel better.

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Matthew 6:5-6 (NIV)

White guy shoots up an abortion clinic and kills people and the liberal media knows his motive within 10 minutes.

Two Muslims shoot and kill mass amounts of people and, by golly, we are still searching for a motive.

It is false witnessing such as this that makes me believe liberals and the liberal media will go straight to hell.

commenter @ 9:03 -
first off, let me say that I am not liberal by any means. I own weapons and belong to the NRA.
Your entire post is ridiculously nonsensical.
1. Middle Eastern men coming in and out of home.
Is that suspicious activity? If the home was occupied by them, then it would be normal for them to come and go.
2. Military weapons.
I think you mean military-style weapons. It's irrelevant anyway. Civilian sporting weapons would work just as well
3. a camera that can be used to train terrorist(s)
Couldn't that same camera be used to post video on social media of a child's activity? #bancameras?
A ball point pen can be used to train terrorists. Were they carrying one of those?
4. Testimony about a bomb
The word "testimony" is used to describe a statement given during a trial. And if there was a bomb involved, I haven't heard that. I assumed that all the deaths occurred later when the shooters returned.
5. shooter travelled to Middle East.
With no context, this is meaningless. There would need to be some evidence of criminal activity for this to be relevant.
6. Facts that you did not know.
Here's a fact you didn't know: I purchased a gun yesterday, and it came from a former Communist country. But it doesn't mean there's a plot to bring down decadent Western capitalism!

Your post is just as senseless as the newspaper front page that slams conservative politicians for using the word "prayers"

Oh right, even Democrat law makers realize, MORE RESTRICTIVE gun laws are NOT the answer to ending mass murder, in the US.

After reading the comments herein, I felt I had to respond. I’ve grown weary of being denigrated for actually having an intellect and using it.
I’m classified as a liberal because I meet the definition of liberal in the college edition of Webster’s New World Dictionary Of The American Language, 1966 edition. If you’re interested in actually finding out what a liberal is, I suggest you look it up.
There is no accounting for Mark Davis. Anyone who would take that idiot seriously has significant issues with reality.
I am a liberal and I own a number of guns, an AR-15 among them. I belong to several shooting clubs in the area and I reload a fair amount of my own ammunition as well.
With better than a quarter century of military service, a fair amount of it in Muslim lands, I have great respect for the Muslim and his religion. Something I cannot say for what passes for Christians and Christianity in this country today.
My wife and I retired to Texas in 1993 and watched as my fellow Texans elected George W. Bush, Kay Granger, John Cornyn, Rick Perry, Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott.
The question that has been niggling at the back of my mind for 22 years is this. Are there any sentient adults left in Texas?

Anonymous said...

Ehh. You might google "millenarian". The coming of the end of the world is something that Christians have been trying to predict for a long time. The problem is in trying to apply allegory in Revelation and Daniel to a broader scope of beliefs. They were written cryptically in response to political issues of the time, not to say that the world would end at a given time. But most fundies are nutters anyway, and can't help themselves.

1252 Sorry, but you're in danger of coming across that way yourself. "Burglary is out of control, so let's pass more flashlight control laws" is the exact logic Obama and others are trying and, I gather, the argument you'd like to make. If someone is prone to breaking into your home, another law will likely not dissuade them. However, the fact that they could be shot if they break into your home, might.

If 0 is a totally liberalized Muslim (Rushdie) and 10 is the 9-11 AQ attack, I would put Fort Hood at "7.5" (the guy e-mailed with radicals and shared thoughts but came up with his act by himself). That act bought the radical cleric a Global Hawk visit. From what we know so far, this stands at around a "7". If the FBI determines the guy was affiliating and in communication with ISIS, it moves to an "8". If ISIS supplied him with money or connections for weapons, move it to a "9" on the domestic terror scale.

I always admire a religion that:
Permits virile males to circumvent the fornication provisions by looking the other way in the diddling of young boys as commonplace.
Allows husbands to stone to death their wives for alleged aldultery instead of separation/divorce.
Allows women to be put to death for alleging rape unless 4 other men have viewed the assault taking lace as witnesses.
Allows the murder of other religions freely and encourages the same.
Looks to a 7th century warlord for divine guidance instead of a leader who teaches peace and tolerance.
Who chastises females for the pursuit of education and higher learning meanwhile viewing them as vessels to bring forth offspring.
Who (and I truly love this one) looks down on infidels for eating cloven hoofed animals all the while they find it perfectly acceptable to wipe their own As--s with their bare left hand.

Maybe you can move to California and takes some guidance from the likes of Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer and Jerry Brown.

I hear there is some cheap real estate available in Syria. Maybe you could snatch up a nice cottage where you could be among a more spiritually and intellectually enlightened crowd. You could post videos shooting your AR in the air and beheading some poor Christian fool that doesn't have the sand to kill in the name of Jesus. I mean, that is what this is truly about with you, right. Christians have largely given up their fundamentalist ways for a modern life filled with the trappings of wealth and greed so you have less respect for that than Muslims who have held onto their backwards ways.

That is a distorted worldview, but I guess you earned it. I'll take my chances with "what passes for Christians" over folks whose central dogma demands that women be repressed and children used as pawns in their social hierarchy. I may have lost some respect for my fellow Christian over the years, but I never lost a compass for what is truly evil in this world. Islam is a cult, even in its most moderate form. It doesn't deserve the respect I'd give a mangie coyote!
