The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of one of the greatest National Championship games in history: Texas vs. USC. Who would have ever dreamed that so much would change?
  • Everyone is telling me to watch Making a Murder on Netflix because it will make me insane. (But the petition to have President Obama pardon the guy has a problem: It was a state crime and a state conviction.)
  • Johnny Manziel may be one of the most Wheels Off individuals in NFL history. He was in Vegas on Saturday and Deadspin reports: "Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie. Manziel introduced himself as 'Billy.'"  Maybe he suffers from Affluenza?
  • I'm stunned how someone would actually threaten me. Especially when they have so much to lose.
  • One of the most mundane things I do as a lawyer is a driver's license hearings. They are important but boring. But with a ton on new lawyers on the scene, the drama of "cross examining" a witness at one of these hearings seems like the most important moment of their lives. Buddy, you are in front of an administrative law judge who doesn't care about your dramatic tone of voice.
  • We now have a 21 pound cat in the house, and I'm guessing he will never leave. I can almost hear Hotel California playing when I walk in. 
  • I watched Donald Trump give a speech in Massachusetts last night. The guy is a political genius. And I'm learning what he is doing. Be a rebel. Be unconventional. Say things no one else would say. Go all out with no limits.
  • I'm hearing great things about that new Quentin Tarantino movie. 
  • There was a police chase last night in Dallas which involved drugs. "The 2 lbs of meth seized by DPS agents in NW Dallas has a street value of $100,000. 5 suspects in custody, 1 is still on the loose." Two pounds is 32 ounces which is 896 grams. So the police value the meth at $111.60 a gram?
  • Even though TCU's win in the Alamo Bowl was great, it was horribly called by play by play man Brian Estridge when he yelled, "Remember the Alamo!" as the game ended. 
  • Fox 4's Clarice Tinsley (she's the gal who reads those goofy Facebook responses on air) just posted a picture of her standing by a gold bar dispensing machine in a 5 star hotel in Dubai.
  • I'll say it again: Mrs. LL with a drone running the controls is comedy of biblical proportions.

Not sure who i will vote for yet, but it is a relief to see Trump not droning on and on about the same tired crap that all of the other candidates spout. It's hard to find a politically correct bone in his body, unlike the rest of the government freeloaders we have in charge of this failing country. We have tried the articulate black guy experiment, we have tried and failed. Nice to hear someone tell it more like it is.

You will pull your hair out watching "Making a Murderer". Everyone from the cops, prosecuting/defense attorneys, judges, and even the Wisconsin AG. It was frikkin' maddening!

So, the drone runs Mrs. LL's controls?

Can you post a video of that?

9:11 - But did Avery kill her?

State crimes, state convictions, state laws, Congressional legislative powers, Federal immigration laws....Obama could not care less. The arrogant idiot will do as he pleases...no one has the guts to stop him...and few the balls to call him out on anything.

9:11 - Avery was wrongly convicted the first time and rightly convicted the second time.

The documentary left out some important details.

That UT win 10 years ago has been on Austin news reports constantly this week. Apparently that was the last time anything good happened there. The mess caused by Mack Brown lives on.
(there's an ongoing federal investigation into activities during that time).

Who is threatening you? Have I missed something?

Most politicians and bureaucracies use similar equations and calculations when determining agenda-driven sums. Much like the unemployment rate.

Some people, enemies of the state, consider it propaganda aka koolaide.

Embellishment is now acceptable. Back in the day, it was referred to as lying.

Electing Trump as President would be like electing your drinking buddy who has a hot sports opinion on everything and could always run the Cowboys better than anyone, according to him. Of course I had enough money to bring that to reality and see where that got us.

Do you think Vince Young is glad he skipped out on his senior year to head to the NFL early?

I thought that Barry did the threatening around here.

Barry, my question is this.
Who was having to console you and hand you the kleenex during The Big Zero's speech earlier?
I am just glad Chi-town will be much, much safer now, and along with wide swaths of the South being safely neutered with the Confederate flag removals, your Utopian world is shaping up nicely.
Now back to that refugee crisis thingy.

It must be for ego or posterity, because I don't think Trump's in it to get rich. Although he's not a good actor, the man does know how to use leverage when negotiating.

By comparison, why would Hilary want it other than to double the $4 billion mega fund they have amassed?

For what reason would any wealthy person want to be the POTUS? Isn't it obvious? Money just isn't enough...

Manziel is just working it, he'll turn out fine, just like me.

Counselor your passive agressive style is a used up, tired, old bit that wasn't funny in the first place and sure ain't funny now.

In other news they caught the young ladies killer from that murder in Denton on New Years. Go figure he's a young black male. Never woulda guessed that. # blacklivesmatter

I wonder if the authors of the constitution could have seen the guns of today, and more particularly could have seen the types of mindless, good for nothing thieves and general idiots that populate our society today; if the "right to bear arms" would have been scripted the same way. The guns that people can get today might as well be nuclear weapons or fighter jets compared to what the authors of the constitution knew as arms.

You left out the US Marine part.....just doing full disclosure.

I wonder if the authors of the constitution could have seen how our government is promoting and enabling these types of mindless, good for nothing thieves and general idiots. Giving fringe groups special rights, encouraging civil unrest, advancing victimization, selectively enforcing laws, hiding the mentally ill in jails, all while blaming the religious, the wealthy and corporations for the problems.

The authors of the constitution would line up most of congress in front of a firing squad after being convicted of treason. They would also deport immigrants who violate their oath of allegiance to America and be appalled at the though of globalization.

Welcome to the new Beirut, home of diversity, depravity and the disgraceful.

Those ALR hearings are as good as a turd in a punch bowl.

No one should threaten anyone. I don't know the circumstances of the threat.

But your comment here, Barry? It comes across like "Don't you know who I am?"

For the first time, I understand what the naysayers mean.
