The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts





  • I don't think my ears have ever perked up as much as they did this morning when I heard The Ticket's Norm Hitzges reference "Alvoid" (meaning Wise County's Alvord) as he recalled when he traveled there as a young reporter decades ago. (For those that don't understand it, anyone who is over 45 and grew up in Wise County remembers when the name of the town was pronounced "Alvoid" by everyone. I still don't understand why.)
  • But it got better! He went to Alvord as a reporter because a nudist community had opened up nearby. He went and interviewed folks in town and went and interviewed the nudists as well. He said, "You know, there wasn't really a bit difference between the two. They were both nice and had the same political views. I was really surprised."
  • He said (and I would pay money to see an old video of this) that he ended the news segment by taking off his clothes and standing behind a telephone poll outside the nudist colony with a fence behind him. He then said, "The people on this side of the fence and that side of the fence are pretty much the same." 
  • Changing gears. I'm not sure that the Steve Harvey Miss Universe screw up wasn't a bit. It would be easy to do. Get the results and huddle with the final two girls. Tell them what you are going to do and everyone gets publicity by the "scandal". And if you watch it, it almost looks like some bad acting is going on. 
  • I think the most amazing thing about the "Affluenza Teen" is not that he is on the run but how much his looks have changed in two years. "They grow up so fast."
  • The Flooring Remolding Project got close to getting wrapped up yesterday. The contractor sent two guys who just happened to be Hispanic and not speak English put in carpet. I wasn't there but they fired up loud Tejano music which made Mrs. LL and the Girls in the House move to a different room. I love it.
  • When I walked in the house from work in my suit they looked up startled. I almost wanted to tell them, "I'm not Donald Trump! I'm not Donald Trump!" 
  • They did a fantastic job. I'm fascinated by carpet installers. 
  • And, no, I'm not saying they were "illegal aliens". I have no idea. I do know they were nice guys and cared about the way they did their job. 
  • Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has issued his "opinion" that guns should be allowed in college dorms in defiance of the policy of the University of Texas. I can't get past a guy who is under indictment, has been on the job for a short period of time,  and doesn't seem very smart issuing a "legal opinion." 
  • The DA in Sandra Bland's case (Waller County) said there will be no indictments against jail employees.  Oddly, the DA in that small county said the Grand Jury reached "no decision" regarding the actions of the trooper, and that the grand jury would return in January to consider the issue. (I hope he's smart enough to know that the Grand Jury's term ends at the end of the year and that there needs to be an entry "on the minutes of the court" - no one knows what that means these days -  by the district judge granting them permission to reconvene.)
  • Fox 4 "Hey, Nows"

Barry tries a little to hard pretending to admire his carpet installers. He's either stupid or a liar.

It's just too funny that a man under indictment for felony securities fraud is the state's moral compass.

telephone poll? Seriously? Good God, your use of the English language is horrible, Mr. I wanna be DA Baylor grad. It's POLE. In one respect, you are already a DA!

The top RTG is very, very scrumptious.
Great job.

As to Alvord. I was born and raised in Wise County, and I have always called it ALVORD. However, I've been hearing that it was named after a family who pronounced it ALVOID, hence the reason for the local pronunciation. Kinda makes both valid.

As to Affluenza kid--Yep his looks sure have changed--he looks more like a thug and a punk than he ever did before!

Bet his parents are real PROUD of him (even if they're hiding him)!

You do realize with your comments on ALVOID that you alienated over 75% of the voters in ALVOID right?

You are correct, BG. You are No Trump!

It should come as no surprise to anyone that you want to see a nude video of Norm Hitzges. Gross.

You are paying carpet installers to come into your home while your family is present and turn up their music very loud? Enough to drive your family to another part of the house? That's nuts. The music player would have found it's way back to the van if this was at my house.

But Barry want's to show us all how tolerant he is with these wonderful, possibly illegal, hispanic folks. Wondering if it had have been some trashy white guys playing some death metal, would he have been so tolerant.

Liberals are sickening and are destroying this country and our way of life.

I'm going to start a grass roots campaign to rename Boyd to Boid in support of our friends to the North. Oh hell, maybe Bord is more appropriate!!!

Solid analysis, 1232. You were presented with a fact that BG did not ask a team of carpet installers to turn down the radio yesterday. From that fact, you drew the conclusion that liberals are trying to destroy the country. Well done.

"And, no, I'm not saying they were "illegal aliens". I have no idea."

That said (you did your liberal brainwash thing well- Ok I get it) but you do KNOW there is a 98% chance they're illegals- right?

I'm a contractor. I never play my music if the homeowners are around. I think it shows a lack of class.

That said, I would like to thank the whole ball of wetbacks who populate the Home Depot contractor lines every day with their lack of English skills. Slow me down, compete with me in my trade as you live illegally in my country and file no tax returns. That's fair, right?

And special thanks to you Barry for finding this entire invasion acceptable and endearing. You libs should really take a good hard look at the shithole of a country those carpet layers come from, cause that's what your country is looking more and more like with each casual acceptance of this cultural shift you condone.

5:34 Sounds like you chose the wrong profession to me. Why any white man would ever work construction in America is beyond me. Maybe you have a habit that doesn't allow you to work elsewhere.

Do you really think that comment adds any value to a conversation? Or is that just you, half drunk, insulting people you don't know because it somehow validates your pathetic life?

A special message to the fool @ 8:02

5:34 here. Yes, I do have a habit. A habit of building $50,000 bathrooms and $100,000 kitchens for rich people. A habit of making a lot of money and paying a lot of taxes. See, I don't want the government to redistribute those rich people's money. I'll go get a fair share of it myself by honestly working for it. But if that same government facilitates enough illegals to wipe out all the tax-paying white contractors, your tax bill must necessarily increase to make up for the loss of mine. Surely your superior education and unique insight into other other people's lives and choices will allow you to understand that basic concept.

The Mexicans aren't filing tax returns. It's just that simple

Yes, it was fake. Ratings plummet, what can we do in this idiocracy to get more attention? Fake a bit. You can see all the bad acting.

7:44 Then quit your bitching if you have it so good. I contracted my own home in '09. Had to fire all but one white contractor for poor craftsmanship. The plumber screwed up the rough-in (Mexican concrete man caught it), the framer whiffed on a roofline, the electrician mislabeled and miswired the breaker box (along with many other mistakes). That is just a few of the issues I had with the locally recommended white guys. You guys better start policing your own or the Mexican's won't take your work just because they are cheaper.
