The Campaign For DA

12.08.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • I always thought it was true, but yesterday I learned that this blog can kill a political campaign if the readers want it to happen. (Maybe I possess those elusive weapons of mass destruction.)
  • I meant to mention yesterday the Arizona Diamondback signing pitcher Zack Greinke to a 6 year and $206,500,000 contract.  That's  over $34 million a year. If he falls down the stairs this morning and blows out his shoulder, he still gets the money. 
  • Despite my sickness (I'm upgrading myself to 80% or perhaps 79%), I put out Christmas lights on the lawn yesterday evening. The fact that there were no lights out there drove me crazy. 
  • Baylor's bowl game will be in Orlando. Since the announcement, this song has been stuck in my head (despite the fact that Disney Land is actually in California.)
  • In a campaign statement, Donald Trump called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on". He got a standing ovation. If he wins the GOP nomination, you will see this biggest beat down since Reagan won 44 of the states in 1980. And Trump wouldn't be on the winning side.
  • Radio guy Mark Davis said this morning that Trump "might have won the presidency" with that statement and theorized about how the policy could be implement. Buddy, you have lost your freaking mind.
  • Special note to my Courthouse friends which includes the County Attorney's Office, District Clerk's Office, County Clerk's Office, County Judge's Office, Sheriff's Office, Maintenance Staff, and Probation Office: If one guy does not walk away he may cost his boss, who is a good guy with a wonderful family, his job. Buddy, walk away. Do the right thing. After all, you are a Protector of Children. This is all about you
  • I'm beginning to realize most people have never seen me pissed off before. Honestly, it rarely happens. But when it happens ..... Oh, my.

There is a vast number of silent Americans whom have started to realize that they don't have to be silent. If they're not so stinking lazy or ignorant of the process to turn their feelings into law, you liberal days are short my good man. Liberalism without application of common sense and vision leads to dysfunctional BS.

That a Donald Trump exists doesn't surprise me (after all I live in Wise Co) but to garner 30% of a wonderful political party is unbelievable.

Talk about aiding and abetting the enemy. ISIL will use Donald as its poster boy in recruiting.

Not to mention pushing some of our homegrown/citizens over the edge

Note to you neocons: lace up go your selves and spare our fine young men and women.

Hillary is the most experienced of the bunch, but she will not survive the swiftboat ads coming her way.

So our next president is Trump or his cheap imitation Cruz. Maybe it is what we need to rid our politic once and for all of fundamentalism. After either one of those the GOP will not exist.

Somewhat related to your comment on Trump's comments, I notice that you've avoided posting anything about the biggest story in recent weeks, the San Bernardino shootings, after initially making a big deal out of it. That appears a lot like "I didn't get the result I wanted, so I'm not gonna talk about it." All of the fears of many on the right -- which your side has derided as "crazy" -- are completely confirmed:

Muslim immigrant? Check
Muslim terrorists? Check
Muslim terrorist born and raised in America? Check
Muslim immigrant terrorist that passed through the government's "inspection"? Check and check

Most people avoid so-called "bad" neighborhoods, especially after dark, because some of the people in those neighborhoods want to victimize them. That's prejudice and bigotry, exercised in the name of self-preservation, and done in the name of good sense. Yet your good sense goes out the window when your Democrat leaders make it political.

You people need to get on the Trump bandwagon. He is the only one of the candidates with the courage to deal with Islam. He has already outlined two excellent ideas:
1. Register all Muslims in U.S.
2. Block all Muslims from entering U.S. from this date forward.

Other ideas we Trump supporters are ready to implement:
1. Moving all Muslims to tightly patrolled neighborhoods in our largest cities.
2. Mark buildings where Muslims live & work with a crescent.
2. Because they can lie about being Muslim, tattoo an identifying number on all when we ship them to the neighborhoods.
3. Eventually establish industries where they will be forced to work to repay all the services they have received while in the U.S.. Of course there will be the initial cost of building guarded camps next to these manufacturing plants, but we have some ideas on recouping additional income from clothing, shoes, and dental gold recycling.

There is a final solution, but we need to check the train schedules first before we share that with you.

I am convinced that this country is screwed and is at the end of its' 200 year cycle. Throughout history countries have banned immigration of people from those countries that are waging war against it. Check you numbers: 25% percent of a poll of 600 Muslims agree that violence against Americans in the U.S. can be justified as part of global jihad. It will continue and when an explosion occurs a poison gas is released at a football stadium Barry will come over to what he now considers the dark side. It may be too late.

To me, Trump's success is a result of people getting sick and tired of being told what to think. They are fed up with PC crap and the politicians that constantly remind us that we are too stupid to live our own lives.

I moved out of my parents house when I graduated high school. I don't need a nanny state to take care of me and control my every day dealings. I pay my taxes so leave me alone.

That is the reason for Trump's high poll numbers.

I would, however, if confronted by such nonsense, protect myself in the only way I know how.

Personally, I'd like to see more infantile displays of temper here. It's entertaining and besides, we all know Barry Green is not going to do anything beyond making threats. Oh my.

I'm both surprised and amused at the reactions to Trump's comments. I'm not convinced that he really wants to be president. I'm certainly not convinced that he would actually try to do some of the things he's said he'd do as president. I think his popularity is in large part because he speaks in terms that are in the category of practical solutions, while other politicians talk about political process and other politician mumbo jumbo. Are Trump's crazier ideas actually practicable? Of course not, and if pressed most of Trump's supporters would admit it. But he's addressing the very real, based-in-reality fears that concern them, while other politicians condescend and lie to them, and publicly laugh about doing it. What the media and Trump's opponents don't like is that he condescends to them.

And no, I'm not a Trump supporter. I'm explaining my take on his appeal, not campaigning for him. You guys dismissing his supporters as racists, or idiots, or immoral, may be missing the point.

Even professional race-baiter Jesse Jackson admitted feeling fear when he thought the footsteps behind him in certain neighborhoods might be a black man.

By the way, do you remember on 9/11/01 when the government grounded all flights? That was a "practical solution" to planes being used as missiles. Doing so on a regular basis would not be practicable, but it's in the category of practical solutions in that it would solve the problem. Executing every prisoner would solve recidivism, so it's in the category of practical solutions, although it's not practicable. Get it?

You have outlined just a few of the many reasons why Trump is toxic to the political process.

1. Good chance Trump is really in the race because his true intention is to so divide the Republican Party and siphon off at least 4% of the Republican vote and assure a Hillary win, regardless of Trump getting the GOP nomination. However, with Trump's ego, there's no doubt he want's to add POTUS to his resume. Even if Trump loses, he's garnered exposure that no amount of money could have purchased.

2. Believing Trump wouldn't actually try to do some of the things he promises he'll do, as POTUS, is acknowledging that Trump is indeed a con-artist doing nothing more than making promises he can't/won't keep, in a blatant attempt at pandering to the whims of racists/people who are dumber than dirt.

The real problem with Trump offering IMPOSSIBLE/unethical/unconstitutional solutions to difficult problems actually increases people's fears and increases the distrust of people who provide valid/intelligent solutions to the difficult problems in our world.

Decent people, including Republicans, should be ashamed and appalled that 25%+ of any United States political party is endorsing a candidate who shows such open disdain for the US Constitution and brags about implementing policy that would go against the most basic rights of the United States.

mzchief said...

Oh, just one more thing, for you Trump supporters. Blacks have killed more Americans, in the past year, than Muslims, what is your solution for that? As a matter of fact, Blacks killed more people, in the US, in 2011 than did Muslims.

Can't wait to hear the racist rabble respond to this question.

9:35 nailed it. So did 8:35, though I don't believe that Trump has single-handedly ruined a "great party."

Trump is single-handedly getting Hillary elected. I actually believe that it's possible that he could win the Republican nomination, now. But there is ZERO chance of him winning the general election. He will get steamrolled.

Because I, a red-blooded, straight, white male who was reared Christian, and who wants fiscal responsibility, less gun control, and to keep the death penalty-- *I* wouldn't vote for that guy.

Mzchief, we are not at war with black Americans as we are with a significant part of the Muslim world. If we were at war with a nation in Africa or a group of terrorists occupying part of that nation, I would oppose allowing immigrants from that territory coming into the U.S. Receiving immigrants from a territory that is at war, with the U.S. is ignorance. Being at war with terrorist is worst than being at war with an enemy that you can identify by their uniform. Those in uniform shoot at us from afar whereas the other walks among us and sets off bombs or releases poison gas. Like Barry, you will change your views when an immigrant blows up a football stadium or shopping center. Have gas masks available for you and your children. The times, they are achanging.

wordkyle said...

Mzchief - 1. I don't believe Trump is trying to assure a HRC win. That's an intricate, movie-like stretch.
2. Of course Trump is a con artist. ALL politicians are, at some point and to some degree. Obama has lied repeatedly, and made a joke of his lies. People seem to be more accepting of politician lies if they're done genteelly enough. Trump is ham-fisted.
3. Too many people (such as our host) downplay the seriousness of threats instead of acknowledging reality. (See San Bernardino shootings.) Only now, after all these years, has the president mentioned that Muslims should take some of the burden of eliminating the monsters in their midst. At the same time, Obama and others would open the spigot of unvetted strangers, a system which ISIS has acknowledged they will use to infiltrate America. Obama & co. are willing to gamble with other people's lives for, what, to show they're sympathetic?

Your attempt at painting a massive group of people as racist because of their fears is pretty simplistic, and not up to your usual level of thought.

I think its sad how many Christians, who profess to live by "faith", are absolutely terrified of everything. If you truly believed in all you testify, then you should be a lot more calm and open to your eventual death, however it may come. God willing, no? We would all be a lot better for it.

Am I saying to just lay down and die? No. There should be due diligence, but this starts at home. Everyone looks to the government to solve their problems, so they can go back inside their walled enclosure, gorge on some taco bell, and watch Dancing with the Stars or whatever mindless drivel they use for distraction. Top it off with a few beers and maybe a joint, forget about it all. Get up, go to work, bitch about Obama, repeat.

If we really want to take our country back and make it safe, then we must act with vigilance individually. Get to know your neighbors. Spend time outside. Question people's action and decisions. You like Trump because he will say what is on his mind, yet the majority of people are scared of speaking up about domestic abuse, drug addition, obesity, etc. We stigmatize sex, hide behind our computers, and pursue anonymity when we can. We are a bunch of weak-minded hypocrites and to suggest otherwise is disingenuous.

This change in American culture is needed. Not only in the obvious sense of possibly preventing unknown "sleeper" operations, but a more naive perspective would be possibly changing the world-view of potential terrorists and/or dissidents. We should try to make America right, and it will be great.

The problem with trying to separate out the "good" Islamists from the "radical" (bad) Islamists is this:

A nice, calm, peaceful, leave-other-people-alone Islamist is actually a--BAD Islamist according to the Quran, Koran, or whatever.

A bad, nasty, kill-all-infidels (all those who don't accept Islam) Islamist is in fact--the GOOD Islamist according to an INTEGRAL part of their religion.

Therefore, any peaceful, etc. Islamist is subject to becoming "enlightened" at any time, and then becoming "radicalized" (which can actually be argued to be "normalized" according to their own beliefs).

Violent Christians, Hinduists, Buddhists, Confucionists, etc. are aberrants (and yes, there are some in all of those religions). Violent Islamists are the NORMAL STANDARD according to the ideals of their religion.

Therein lies the rub about dealing with them in accordance with our Constitution, as opposed to all other religions. They're subject to going "cray cray" at any moment--no matter how much you "screen" them or "vet" them. Peaceful in the present does not guarantee they will not go--Normal--in the future.

You people do realize, there's a VAST difference between Muslim refugees, Muslim immigrants and Muslim visitors entering the US, right?

Just to clarify, I'm not for ANYONE permanently moving to the United States who isn't interested in assimilating and embracing the traditional values of the United States. I am absolutely, 100% against refugees, from any nation, other than the two bordering the US, being relocated to the US.

Trump demanding that ALL Muslims be prohibited from entering the US is just Trump being a mindless bigot because it has NOTHING to do with keeping Americans safe. Trump is an old man beyond his time and needs to go back to being the con-artist, old school robber baron he's always been. You small minded uninformed people supporting Trump haven't even bothered to fact check the BS Trump says about himself.

Keep in mind, with each and everyone of those bankruptcies people were NOT paid for their goods and services. It wasn't just bankers who got burned.

Most of the people who were burned were retirees. Just two weeks prior to filing bankruptcy on this project Ivanka Trump sent a letter to all the property owners assuring them everything was fine and the project was going ahead.

Trump University was a sham resulting in the NY Attorney General's office filling a $40 million dollar lawsuit. In April 2015 a judge has ruled that Trump is personally responsible for the fraud. There is also a class action suit pending against Trump.

Sigh. Okay, you can't read.
Exhibit a) Liberally Lean, Thursday: "Well we have another act of mass violence . . . once again by a government employee who is a U.S. citizen and "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." On Friday, no mention of the shootings, but a front page saying they're the same as others. As I said, downplaying the threat.

Exhibit b) From the Washington Post: "...vetting Syrian refugees poses a quandary: How do you screen people from a war-torn country that has few criminal and terrorist databases to check?"
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper: "I don’t, obviously, put it past the likes of ISIL to infiltrate operatives among these refugees, so that’s a huge concern of ours.”
FBI Director James Comey added in congressional testimony last month that “a number of people who were of serious concern” slipped through the screening of Iraq War refugees, including two arrested on terrorism-related charges. “There’s no doubt that was the product of a less than excellent vetting....I can’t sit here and offer anybody an absolute assurance that there’s no risk associated with this.” he said.

They could show Trump and Clinton eating breakfast together, planning out what crazy thing he was going to say this week. "Hill baby, how about I propose that all women register their uterus with the government? Those losers would eat that up!"

And Clinton says, "Donnie, you deliver me the White House and I'll make you Secretary of YU-U--U-GE!"

Here is the rest of your quoted paragraph that you must've overlooked:

“I don’t, obviously, put it past the likes of ISIL to infiltrate operatives among these refugees, so that’s a huge concern of ours,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said at a security industry conference in September, using another name for the Islamic State. He added that the government has “a pretty aggressive program” for screening refugees but that he is less confident about European nations.

Point being, it is an outright falsity that the refugees are "unvetted." Complain that they are not vetted enough. Or complain that no amount of vetting can uncover radicalism. But don't complain that they are not vetted; it's not true.

222 - "not vetted enough" = "not vetted." Vetting is a "careful and critical examination," which they have admitted is near impossible with Syrians, and which the government has failed at in the past. As recently as last week's news, it turns out the government's process failed to weed out one of the shooters in San Bernardino. So 1) The government has historically shown they can't/don't/won't properly check the backgrounds of those coming into the country; and 2) Government officials in charge of the process have said they can't assure our safety from ISIS agents infiltrating through the refugee process.

Using your standard, if they ask a Syrian refugee for a name and get one, then that person is "vetted." So you'll see why your quibble with the language is immaterial to anyone who takes the bigger issue seriously. Peddle your argument among your peers, you might have better luck.

Wouldn't a Muslim terrorist simply have to say "no" when asked if he or she was a Muslim? It's a religion, not a skin color or type of clothing. Some guy born in England, white as a sheet of paper, and wearing a suit could be a Muslim.
