The Campaign For DA

1.06.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Someone told me yesterday to watch Netflix's Making of a Murderer because it would make my head explode. I watched the first episode last night. Uh, my head almost exploded. It's a documentary about a guy falsely imprisoned because of cops/prosecutors who were either incompetent, lazy, arrogant or crooked. Or maybe all of those. (And it happened in a county only slightly larger than Wise County.)
  • One part made me stop down was when the documentary pointed out that "three" of the ladies in the DA's office told the DA, "We think you've got the wrong guy." 
  • By the way, is Netflix streaming not the best deal in the country? $7.99 to $11.99 a month. 
  • NFL: Seattle will play Minnesota this weekend and it will be outdoors. Temperatures around zero.
  • The weirdest halftime show visual from any Mavs game in the history of ever is here.
  • I understand people having trouble with the President's gun proposals (or the method of imposing them) but to say his tears and emotions yesterday were fake seems to come from some deep seeded hatred.
  • Radio guy Mark Davis, who said the tears were fake, mocked the President this morning saying the press conference was the equivalent of standing in front of a GM plant and saying, "These cars kill people!" You know, it kind of is. Guns, like cars, need to only be in the hands of responsible people who know how to handle them. And even cars are registered.
  • Oil has dropped to $35 a barrel this morning -- the lowest price in 11 years.  I'm not sure we've seen the big Texas economic hit happen yet. And housing may be in for a shock. 
  • Allen High School's head football coach has been beyond successful. "He won four state titles in 12 seasons, going 147-17, including a 57-game winning streak."  Yesterday, after 29 years with Allen, it was announced that he was resigning to go take over at Barbers Hill. My first thought was, "Where is Barbers Hill?" It's by Houston. And then I learned of a Wise County connection. The only reason Barbers Hill is looking for a new coach is because Decatur's Ronnie Gage was stepping down. 
  • A marine might have killed that UNT student?
  • Heard in The House last night, "It's the premier of Dance Moms!!!!!!" I headed upstairs. 
  • Talk about trolling . . .

Good job mr president. There needs to be universal background checks. Trust purchases to avoid check must be stopped. No law will stop crazies but laws can reduce the frequencies. The NRA blackmails republicans with threat of primary opponent. We need to have a primary opponent for everyone who doesn't support reasonable restrictions. Take away NRA leverage and something will pass

everything i've read about the netflix series is that they left out the most incriminating evidence.

it's like i tell my wife, just because something is cheap doesn't make it good. Everyone loves Amazon, the company that has never turned a profit. Not everyone, book publishers and book stores don't love them. Neither do retailers or property managers come to think of it. but john q public loves them because of money.... or something. shareholders, now they love them (only because no profits somehow = success).

that's how a playoff game should be played.

I don't hate the president (I work for him), but I think the tears were a little over the top and I honestly believe he doesn't give two shits. instead of lame duck he's going scorched earth. He's got moxy, I'll give him that.

Mark Davis is as relevant today as the President will be in February 2017.

8:42. Your are a idiot. Just like Dairy Queen. When a item is purchased on a trust you still have to fill out a form 4473 and get a background check just like a gun. Look up atf form 4473. 4473 has been around for ever. It's registration of firearms. He isn't doing nothing new. How about he use his energy to enforce current gun laws.

"Radio guy Mark Davis, who said the tears were fake, mocked the President this morning saying the press conference was the equivalent of standing in front of a GM plant and saying, "These cars kill people!"

As I said Dairy Queen you are a idiot also. Look up form 4473. It's registration. Been here long since the big 0.

We've always said you should have all the guns you want, if they are insured. Want to buy ammunition or reloading supplies? Show proof of insurance. Want to buy a new piece? Show insurance. And the cost to insure an AK-47 knock-off with banana clip would be more than than the cost of insuring a single shot breech-break Browning shotgun. Just makes sense.

Cars need more strict regulations in vetting who can drive them. Remember the crazy lady who killed and injured quite a few people in Las Vegas just a few weeks ago. Where was his statement from the rose garden expressing his desire for more regulation to stop such killings with those deadly weapons when that happened?

The turd who allegedly murdered the UNT girl isn't much of a Marine. He's an administration specialist in a Marine Corps training squadron. He's also a rapper who calls himself Santana Sage. After he's convicted he will be an ex Marine. Ex Marines don't exist and examples include murderous scum like Charles Whitman & Lee Harvey Oswald.

"...mocking someone who cries over murdered children..." - Well, that's the crux of the matter, isn't it? What word would you use to describe the politician who turns on the tears at will when it's photo-oply desirable? (See "Clinton, Bill; Ron Brown funeral"). It may be cynical to believe Obama's tears were fake or forced, but it's not unreasonable, and it's certainly not hatred or sociopathic.

wordkyle said...

1127 - What executive actions did Obama take? He implied that existing laws don't apply to internet sales, which the Washington Post debunked. The Post also cited experts who say his announcement won't make much difference. The government could better reduce deaths from guns more by going to the root and addressing the "suicide problem" (two-thirds of gun deaths) or the "inner city gang problem" ((nearly half of the rest of gun deaths.)

The sincerity or lack thereof of Obama's tears can certainly be discussed in side conversations like this one, but it hasn't been the "focus" of serious discussion. It's more about his move to re-interpret existing regulations to suit his own political agenda.

Incidentally, I won't be surprised if in his last year in office he announces a number of moves to circumvent existing law to implement his world view. His comment to Yeltsin about having "more flexibility" after his re-election seems to be as heartfelt as any tears he shed over children's deaths.

Cars are already registered.
Yep, and people continue to steal them and drive them into crowds of people without licenses. People who have had their license revoked continue to drive.

And cars are only registered if they are going to be on public roadways.

If I just want a truck to drive on my land it doesn't need to get registered.

You see where this is going?

Can your brain understand this? How am I going to vote for you if you can't comprehend this?

11:07 You are an idiot. Universal background checks already exist. That is nothing new. If you buy a gun from a licensed dealer, they have to do a background check. There's no difference between what you call an assault rifle and a regular deer rifle, except the front handle. You can get a Winchester 308 deer rifle with a 30 round clip and it will actually be more deadly than a AR-15 because the caliber of the bullet is bigger. And silencers are extremely difficult to get and the process is very expensive and thorough. So quit attempting to talk about stuff you seem very ignorant about.

SpanishWarDonkey said...

11:07... Let me know what % of violent crimes involved "semi-automatic" rifles and "suppressors". I'll give you a hint, it starts with 0.0. Come up with some laws that would make a difference, or better yet, stop letting straw-purchasers plea down to probation as our justice department has done in dozens of cases for the better part of a decade. Let's enforce what's on the books, shall we?

Come get them.

Anonymous said...

11:07 No one needs a silencer.

And from where do you get this nugget of wisdom? Are you aware that owners of suppressors (the correct nomenclature) already pay a $200 tax/fee for each one owned? And just what do you suppose is the incidence of such devices in criminality?

Methinks you've been watching too many spy movies.

I own several guns that are not registered. And not every dealer registers as a dealer at shows, and to all sellers at shows are dealers. Your magic for is not a cure all when there are cheaters out there. Man you're dumb.

Anonymous said...

As a rancher with an "assault weapon" that has a suppressor, I disagree that "no-one" needs them. I use it sparingly, and only on hogs or wild dogs (coyotes are no threat) when the cows are near. And they are so heavily regulated and expensive that they aren't used by your average thug. Plus, I can't think of a crime committed with a silencer that wasn't in the movies. You damn sure don't see the average mugger or car jacker using them.

How about we spend our efforts where they will actually make a difference? Universal background checks and improved mental health are a start. I'd say that laws requiring them to be turned over if someone in the house is diagnosed with certain mental illnesses are also a good place to start. Most mass shootings are done by nut jobs with legal weapons.

Funny how the liberal rag Daily News calls the Republicans the party of pro-death when the Democrats constantly push abortion on us all.

Deaths of innocents are not of a concern to the libs. It's the death of voters that they are most worried about. Babies can't vote for another 18 years.

If you think Obama's tears were genuine then you just got fooled by a sociopath!!! He never cared about the kids, just what they could do for his legacy.

Closing the loophole will not prevent one mass shooting, it is targeting folks that want a few guns off the books when the confiscation begins. Which is in tune with what Obama does, he targets those who oppose him instead of creating meaningful policies that would actually help. A leader who is more concerned with scoreboarding and punishing his rivals is no leader at all, just a petty vindictive man!
