The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Weirdest note of the year has already occurred: The Affluenza mom flew commercial back to the Tarrant County yesterday and Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen were on same flight.
  • Mrs. LL to me this morning: "I had a dream I was unfaithful." Me: "You sure it was just a dream?" Her: "Shut up. It was with [The Ticket's] Junior Miller. Then he started stalking me and opened up a restaurant next door to us so he could taunt you at dinner time as he prepared delicious meals." I had a question mark form over my head at that point.
  • Speaking of, Junior had a great question this morning: Whatever happened to Hoop It Up, the three on three basketball tournament? I went and watched it once in the West End and it was wildly popular.
  • A Bridgeport man who just happened to be Hispanic was found not guilty of Indecency With a Child yesterday in Wise County.  I heard opening statements and commented to someone afterwards that I hope there was more to the case than what I heard. Despite being exonerated, that man will always be associated with the charge. What's the famous saying?: "Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?" 
  • I plan to watch all of Making of a Murderer this weekend.
  • I walked by the IRS Building in Washington a couple of weeks ago and yelled, "Boo!" Yesterday they the headline was: "IRS Nixes Controversial Plan To Collect Social Security Numbers Of Charity Donors." Coincidence?
  • Very clever tweet from an unnamed local reporter this morning: "Police scanner: Minor accident on TX 114 north of [Paradise]. Two occupants, uninjured but dazed and confused. (Alright, alright, alright.)"
  • The President took a lot of tough question at his CNN "Town Hall" meeting last night regarding guns. Why didn't the NRA show up? They could have thrown at least one hay-maker.
  • That was a fantastic sunrise this morning. 
  • Also this morning: "The U.S. economy added 292,000 jobs in December while unemployment held steady at 5 percent."
  • A guy got shot outside a Dallas strip club at 5:15 this morning. (Always a bad sign if you are in a strip club at 5:15 at any time.)  Fox 4 referred to the club as "a popular Dallas nightclub."

Does anyone really give an F as to who else was on this flight? Similarly, does anyone give the same F that the Couch family dog is lost in Mexico? DMN really hitting hard with these tweets and stories.

You thought that town hall meeting was unscripted and open to anyone?????

Why didn't the NRA show up? Because it was a staged, controlled, invitation only and scripted event just like all of Obammy's events are. Damn Skippy, what do you think we are? Stupid? There you go again bragging about the economy and unemployment rate. Seen what the stock market is doing?

So glad you completely intimated the IRS for the rest of us. I may need to fire my tax attorney and simply hire you instead?

This might be the first of many times that Tonya Couch doesn't want to go where everybody knows her name

The good stuff usually happens inside the strip club, except for that deal where you give all your money to women working their way through college (wink wink).
The bad stuff always seems to happen outside. #banstripclubparkinglots

"just happened to be Hispanic"
extremely odd way to phrase it, and not relevant to the story. You really do want to be Trump's running mate, don't you?

I never thought that the U.S. Government would knowingly lie to the American people in order to protect our leaders.

The left destroys everything and there are dark days ahead of us.

Elmo from Sesame Street was also on that same flight. Maybe CNN, in order to fill air time, can put a panel together and discuss the possible connections between affluenza and Sesame Street no longer being able to speak the truth to kids, but instead having to be politically correct. There's something weird about Elmo AND the a rich mom being on the same flight.

I watched the first 3 episodes of Making of a Murderer last night. Be ready because it's awesome and the end of one leads you having to watch another. It really made me think about the importance of a defense attorney.

Can you now choose to change your race? Doesn't EVERYONE "just happen to be" white, Hispanic, black, etc. Why is this qualifier used so often?

Here's Barack Obama's consistent message: "I respect the Second Amendment, but..." When someone follows a statement with but, whatever comes next is what they really believe. Obama's "respect" for Americans' right to bear arms is very limited and diluted.

What percentage of your time do you spend thinking about the president, Wordeez?

90?

95?

What reason would the NRA have to even show up at Obama's town hall? There is no way that they would have been given equal in this completely scripted event! They would have been attacked and would not have been given a chance to fairly respond to anything.

It was much better that they stay away.

Not guilty does not equal exoneration. You know this.

Junior Miller's restaurant next door? A new 21 pound cat in the house? Feelings of restlessness in your relationship? I see some synchronicity here. Mrs. Liberally Lean, I think you will need at least four counseling sessions and one good shouting at.

Hysterical that you thought the CNN Town Hall meeting was unscripted! The people were chosen to be there because their positions were known. He wanted those exact questions to be asked. You thought they were tough because they disagree with the President's position on gun control. He wanted those questions because he thinks he has a counterpoint to each of those questions that is SO BRILLIANT, that he will pull more middle of the road Americans to his side.
Obama is a conniving jack-ass. Can I get an Amen?

Does anyone have a cite for the claim that Obama's town hall event was scripted? It may very well be, I think most politicians' Q&As probably are, but I have not seen a cite.

Love that everything connected with Obama is some sort of conspiracy, meanwhile everything Teabaggers do is completely unscripted and spontaneous. Well, except for the part about being scripted talking points by FOX News.

Making of Murderer documentary on Netflix is the best crime story I've watched and I have a theory on how the district attorney with help from two sheriffs deputies framed an innocent man. Listening to testimony, I think someone who knew the victim shot her, left her body in the back of the car and may have burned it in a gravel pit. Three days later a call came in about license plates belonging to the victim. That was two days before a search at the wrecking yard found her car. Believing Avery was quilt or wanting to stop the 36 million law suit against the county and officials, I think the two deputies moved the car to the wrecking lot, burned the body in the gravel pit and transported the bones to Avery property. Blood from evidenced stored at the county clerks office was smeared on the victims car and the key to the victims car was found in Avery bedroom on the 5th search! Then I think perhaps they had someone on the inside of the jury who intimidated other jurors to vote quilt because a juror has come forward claiming if they voted not quilty causing a hung jury, their life would be in danger. The first vote was 7 innocent, 3 quilty. I've served on a jury and it is too easy to sway opinion. The criminal justice system is broken. That is why who we elect as sheriff and district attorney has to be right.

Very clever tweet from an unnamed local reporter this morning:

Mr. Green is kissing up to the local media hoping they will endorse him come election time.

It is very possible for there to be more jobs without changing the unemployment rate. Part of the unemployment rate calculation is the number of people in the labor force. There can be more actual jobs; but if there are an equal number of new people in the labor force; whether through population growth, or kids reaching working age, or fewer retiring, or just more people being required to or wanting to job hunt...then the new jobs are offset by the fact more people are looking...and the rate of unemployment stays the same.

Making a Murder was such a set up when they got that nephew who was mentally unstable, and didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground to say he helped.
Just shows what small town cops and DA's can do just like back in the day when Leroy Burch was sheriff and David Box was the bondsman in Wise County, they had the county tied up pretty much. Same thing in that town.

Because he was presumed innocent. You can only be exonerated after a wrongful conviction. If you are never found guilty, it's because you were always innocent.

There's more to the Constitution than the 2nd Amendment, dipshit.

"Teabagger" is a very derogatory term, and tells me that you are not interested in the honest exchange of ideas without name calling, like I am. I never call anyone names, and I am always completely honest. I'll even tell you all about my self-fellatin' during Trump commercials, if you like.

And no comment about the unemployment numbers staying low despite energy sector layoffs? NPR described the job numbers as "boom-like" this morning.

The most shocking thing about Making of a Murderer is that it isn't in Wise County. Maybe that will be Season 2.

The religion of peace has reached out and shown us another example of infinite love for their fellow man today in Philadelphia. Most magnificent to see this devout worshiper in his white vestments and chanting "Peace be with you" in his native Farsi tongue. More later…

Now back to our regularly scheduled program of "The angry, white, gun-toting man is to blame".

Barry, thank you for running for DA. I know it's going to be an uphill battle against the Wise County political machine but we need a person more concerned with honesty and justice than convictions and revenge in that office.

After watching Making of a Murderer I'll never trust law enforcement again. And watch your back my friend. Watch. your. back.

The NRA was invited to the town hall meeting and they declined.
http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/06/politics/nra-obama-gun-town-hall/

sparkerr said...

President Obama on Thursday tore into the National Rifle Association (NRA) for skipping a live televised town hall on gun violence.

Obama said he accepted CNN’s invitation to the town hall because his support for gun control is “consistently mischaracterized” by gun-rights advocates like the NRA.

“There’s a reason why the NRA’s not here. They’re just down the street,” Obama said, growing visibly angry. “And since this is the main reason they exist, you’d think they be prepared to have a debate with the president."

The president said the NRA has declined multiple invitations to come to the White House or have a dialogue.

“I’m happy to meet with them,” he said.

The NRA did not attend the town hall because they were only permitted one "prescreened" question.
