The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thought




  • I received an insurance check yesterday for roof repair on our rent house payable to "Barry Green and Katrina Green and United States of America."  Explanation? Do I have to have President Obama endorse it?
  • Anyone know any roofing contractors in Decatur?
  • The Ticket's Gordon Keith doing a Mark Levin impersonation makes me overjoyed. It is spot on. 
  • As nerdy as I am, I have never had even a remote interest in Star Wars. And I've seen all of the movies to try to get interested.
  • BagofNothing posted a picture yesterday of a Monday Night Football game.  I had one and loved it. I would try and explain how it worked but it's almost impossible. (But I do remember if the defense called a blitz and the offense called a draw, "TD" would light up.)
  • The Seventh Grader In The House is sick. I hope I'm not the reason for it because I'm still at 80% and I can't kick this thing. 
  • The Dallas Morning News had an article on how Winstar is killing DFW concert venues with concerts. They bury the artists in money and then have a provision in their contract which basically say "you can't play in Dallas before or after this" for x number of days. 
  • "German Chancellor Angela Merkel named Time's Person of the Year." Honestly, I'm not sure why until I read the article.
  • Donald Trump immediately responded: "I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany."
  • Idiocracy.

Cannon Roofing did a good job for me.

Jimco roofing. Name sounds like a fly-by-night outfit but they have been around for years and do A-1 quality work in a timely manner. They are also most willing to work with you on insurance claims, and I'm not insinuating shady discounts or kick back schemes. And regardless of what the locals may say, they beat Matthews Roofing all to pieces.

Barry, does that check have room for the other 319 million endorsements? We have our rules, you know.

"Time's Person of the Year" -- Love him or hate him, Trump's right about this. He's confounded political experts and the media in a presidential race. They've done everything they can to delegitimize him, and yet he still survives.

"I told you idiots several months ago that Angela Merkel was an actual living-under-a-bridge schlubby troll, and that the Germans are losers. I'm ruining this country at a much faster rate than she is ruining hers. All of the surveys confirm it, folks.
Okay, so Time Magazine didn't pick me as its person of the year. But my pledge to you now is this: if the hideous mop on top of my head doesn't win Luxurious Hair of the Year award, I will buy whatever loser media empire owns that worthless rag of a periodical and rename it Your Time is Up Magazine!"

"I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany."

Trump, yet again, proving just how classless and narcissistic he is by being a sore loser. Don't you just cringe at how Trump, a guy running for POTUS, thinks nothing of offending the leader of a nation the US considers to be one of it's strongest allies?

Do you Trump Chumps HONESTLY believe Trump can, as he claims, "negotiate with anyone"??? Keep in mind, Trump couldn't negotiate/force CNN to donate $5 million of it's profits from the debate, to Wounded Warriors. Without a doubt, it would have been outstanding PR for CNN and he couldn't get the deal done. What makes you people believe that Trump can negotiate with China, North Korea, Iran if he can't successfully negotiate with CNN?

Winstar is doing nothing to Dallas that Dallas has not done to Fort Worth. It is just that Winstar is able to "cover" them in money knowing that patrons will spend money gambling and on food and room rentals. Good business. Dallas just needs to step up and quit crying.

Time magazine's person of the year award approaches the absurdity of the modern Nobel Peace Prize. (Al Gore....Barack Obama) Embarrassing for Alfred Nobel, the intentions of the prize, and humanity in general.

So you are saying...

Trump wanted to be associated with the likes of Stalin(twice), Hitler, Putin(twice), Clinton(twice) and Obama(twice), Kennedy and Johnson, just to name a few, that have all previous been the TIME Person of the Year recipients.

check made payable to you, your spouse and the United States of America = multiple possible answers: a. the IRS has attached a tax lien to you or a member of the household; b. you've re-financed at some point since buying and HUD holds a second lien; c. some other governmental entity (frannymac, freddymac, VA, etc.) is a known guarantor of the home's mortgage; d. someone at the insurance company is trying to make life difficult for you. There are probably other answers as well, but those are the ones that spring to mind. if it were me, i'd endorse it, deposit it and see if the bank catches it.

Kumstayn Roofing has always done a fantastic job.

MJ Roofing did an excellent job and I appreciated that they gave me the estimate BEFORE they knew the amount of my insurance check.

Others awarded the title that were not mentioned previously:
Gandhi, Churchill, Eisenhower, QEII, the Presidents Bush, and three popes.
See how easy it is to cherry pick to get a favorable list of winners? The award goes to the editors' choice as newsmaker of the year. Could be a nice person, could be despicable


Adolf was miffed - aufgebracht, even - about receiving only one Man of the Year award, while that Commie fink Stalin got two. Der Fuehrer wasn't one of those "Oh, it's an honor just to be nominated" kind of menschen. It kind of set him off, and he went on a bit of a jag there for a while. A Jaeger jag!

Merkel didn't have much competition if you look at the finalists. She beat a Tranny, 2 terrorists, a terrorist movement, the CEO of UBER and Donald Trump.

Donald, you might want to walk-back your Angela Merkel slam. After all, she does have over 1800 Leopard Heavy Battle tanks parked and waiting for something to do. Don't piss the lady off. She has bigger cojones than you.

Yesterday MzChief says Trump is a bigot for wanting to exclude people, then she says she wants to exclude everyone that doesn't share a border with us?

I don't know what rock she crawled out of to come out and talk bad about Trump, but I wish she'd go back. No matter how much she complains she cannot hide the fact that Trump is the GOP front runner and may very well be the nominee. Y'all made him, now you have to own it.

Clearly, you're illiterate and reading comprehension isn't your strong suit or you're a troll who's being intentionally obtuse.

"I am absolutely, 100% against refugees, from any nation, other than the two bordering the US, being relocated to the US."

The key word that seems to trip you up is "refugees." According to the UNHCR a "refugee" is someone who flees, to a nation bordering their nation of origin, an armed conflict or persecution. The Syrians fleeing into Europe are actually, by UNHCR definition, "migrants." If US immigration law was followed, Syrians fleeing the hostilities, in their homeland, would have to enter the US as "migrants" and apply for migrant status like any other foreign national.

I'm sure that was far too much information for you to comprehend. Suffice it to say. I know what I'm talking about and you most assuredly are clueless. Let's hope your mum did a better job of keeping the paint chips away from your siblings than she did you.

3:27 I think she crawled from under Pulpit Rock on the aisle of Portland. Like many other expat Brits such as Piers Morgan, they never came down from the pulpit when they slinked across the Atlantic. They love nothing more than putting down America and Americans in favor of their limey Socialist views.

Mzchief,
between trips to the orthodontist and the citrus aisle at your local super,
consider looking up a wee bit of history concerning dear Ol' Neville Chamberlain.
Lots of relevancy for today's struggles I should think.

That deal with Winstar is a standard contract line for any of the bigger venues. I used to dabble in the industry a bit and always heard that Billy Bob's had about the strictest policy out there. It's good business sense for Winstar. If you see your favorite band playing in Oklahoma, why drive all the way up there if they're going to be in Dallas next week? And at $75 for general admission tickets, they can throw a lot of money around.

"'German Chancellor Angela Merkel named Time's Person of the Year.' Honestly, I'm not sure why until I read the article."

Seriously? So, international news is not really something that you keep up with, is it? Germany is, economically, the single most important country in Europe, right now, and Merkel has been central to fixing Europe's (and Greece's) economic problems. Then, out of the blue, she makes the compassionate-yet-risky decision to take in throngs of refugees.

Like her or hate her, she is a leader, that one.
