The Campaign For DA

1.11.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Ground Control to Major Tom: David Bowie died last night.
  • El Chapo was captured, but I can't get over the shirt he was wearing. And the fact that Sean Penn was accidentally involved in the capture is crazy.
  • Mrs. LL and I watched Poltergiest on Friday night and I had forgotten how great it was. Even weirder, I to told her that I thought the little girl star was dead. I was right. But she died in 1988.
  • I'm not sure, but it sounds like she died from Toxic Shock Syndrome. Anyone out there remember that in the 1980s?
  • Obscure sports stat: The Baylor's women's basketball team is 108-2 at home. And an even more obscure fact: They have a player who is the granddaughter of former TCU football head coach F.A. Dry.
  • I mentioned that Mrs. LL has been playing with a tiny drone. At the CES convention last week, a drone was unveiled which is  designed to carry a person. That is right out of the Jetsons. And it might be the future. The bad news that for now it costs $200,000-$300,000. Then again, flat screen TVs used to cost $5,000.
  • I loved the commenter on Friday who said the economy was in bad shape because of the stock market. Dude, you don't understand the stock market.
  • The ending of the Cinncinati/Pittsburgh game was crazy and the fact that Pacman Jones was involved in a penalty made it very entertaining. In 2008, Pacman got into a fight in a bathroom of a hotel in Dallas. I'm trying to find it, but I could have sworn Jerry Jones said a "trinket" or "figurine" was broken.
  • I didn't watch it all but I'm through four episodes of Netflix's Making a Murder. After that the first episode I thought it was over and the next episode would be about a different case. Nope. Just when you think it cannot get worse, it does. I have been  on the verge of screaming at the prosecutors on the screen. And every prosecutor, defense lawyer, law enforcement officer as well anyone who cares about justice needs to watch it. This stuff happens. 
  • The official organization for Texas prosecutors issued a warning on Friday with this all caps sentence: "ALL TEXAS PROSECUTORS SHOULD READ THIS OPINION". If you withhold evidence that may not even impact a  case, you still might lose your bar card. Of course, it would require someone reporting a prosecutor to the State Bar. 
  • Mrs. LL was in downtown Dallas with a friend when a person told her that the restaurant at the top of Reunion Tower was operated by Wolfgang Puck. She told him, "We ate at one of his restaurants in Vegas!" She then realized the guy was homeless. She then gave him money out of, I suppose, generosity and embarrassment. 
  • The Power Ball lottery is $1.3 billion. And now people are interested?
  • I accidentally came across a Donald Trump rally in Iowa on Saturday. I could not stop watching. He's a fascinating politician. 
  • The Jacksboro paper has a story about my crazy campaign to run as an Independent. The reporter told me they ran the story with a "fuzzy" picture of me she got off the Internet. I told her I wasn't going to win on my good looks so that was OK.
  • There was a PBS show that I recorded (it is Texas based) and  there was a segment of how Texas Game Wardens were trained at NASA how to escape from a helicopter which crashes into water. You kidding me? How much does that cost us? 
  • I love the Golden Globes and Ricky Gervais. Man, he went scorched earth last night. But one of my favorite moments occurred when Sylvester Stalone won an award, and the orchestra fired up the Rocky theme on his way to the stage. And once he got up there, he said that, "I am the sum total of everyone I've ever met." What a great line. He may not have created it, but that is one great line.

I'm going to play the power ball now since it's 1.3 billion.

I mean come on.... pay $2 to win just five million.... not worth it.

$5 million... what can you even do with spare change like that?

Steven Avery has representation from a high power attorney to help him prove he is innocent. So much is being written about the case focusing on suspects. Steven has a list of 4 family members who were on the property the day of the murder but the evidence about the victims bones being burned off the property and brought back to Avery mobile home seems to prove he was framed. I think the district attorney with help from 2 deputies conspired to get rid of the 35 million dollar law suit and of course this can happen.

Leftist like Barry are happy to pay Democrat voters to watch TV in their pajamas all day, then outraged at helicopter safety training for Texas Game Wardens.

Steven Avery once threw a Yorkie puppy into a camp fire. Yes, It was as bad as it sounds.

Netflix's Making a Murder is a TV show with all the spin that can be spun.

You mean Game warden lives don't matter?

Funny watching all those criminal justice system employees lie. Then that clown that framed his sketch that implicated Avery. Is that called perjury? Business as usual?

Amazing when the steel bars blur and you can't figure out who is on which side of the bars.

David Bowie had a bigger sexual appetite than Bill Clinton and liked women AND men.

And you Skippy don't know anything about economics if you think Obammy is doing such a great job of it.

The RTG pict is almost perfect today. All that's missing is a chihuahua in a diamond dog collar. But does the blonde really need that large a purse poolside?

David Bowie as the Goblin King in the movie Labyrinth back in the day was greatness.

So the more cases filed, the better the DA? Sorry, I thought the office was about the fair application of common sense justice to all citizens equally. Those two things (number of cases filed versus fair justice administration) are not necessarily the same. Run hard Barry. Us common folk need you now more than ever.

Who was David Bowie? I really never heard of him, never saw his name at Woodstock.

What the hell were you doing in Iowa?

So a lot of our Texas Game Wardens work either on the coast or in areas where there are large bodies of water. What is wrong with spending some money to train them on escaping should the helicopter crash in the water? There are lots of money wasted in the State of Texas, but this is not a waste.

Of course, you have to truly support any type of law enforcement to agree that this training is a good thing!

First on CNN: Trayvon Martin's mother endorses Hillary Clinton for president

Can someone please explain to me why this matters?

Bowie had an amazing song catalog, but some gems from his filmography are worth a look also:
The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) - an extraterrestrial amasses a fortune introducing innovative technology, intending to use the newfound wealth to save his water-starved home planet (and his family which stayed behind)
Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983) - a WWII British officer endures cruel treatment in a Japanese POW camp, at the hands of a guard who considers the prisoners' capture and surrender as cowardly, dishonorable behavior

Barry why have you decided to stop profiling female teachers having grex with students? The voters deserve to know

Damn green you sure are hard on the DPS and how they spend money. Wonder how it looks compared to how much the taxpayers have spent on all of obamas vacations.

And "honest" men once took 18 years of his life knowing he was innocent. Avery was a piece of trash, no doubt, but what is worse.

Give me a toy helicopter and green army men and I could teach the game wardens everything they need to know for about $35 bucks!

"I've gone there at 1 p.m. on a Friday and the DA's office is shut down - not a single prosecutor, staff member, lights out, doors locked," Green said. "The perception of a darkened office during a work day by a public official, it just hit me the wrong way."

Seriously BG it's called lunch. Being deceitful won't get you more votes... you can at least walk away with your head held high.

Barry, are you sad that you just missed out on the "no pants subway ride" day?
