The Campaign For DA

2.04.2016

Random Friday Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • The Longhorns had a heck of a recruiting class but it may be too little too late. If they have a bad year again next year, Charlie Strong will probably be gone. Probably not fair but that is reality.
  • One of the best lines I ever heard from a guy was: "My dad would mow the lawn in black socks and looked ridiculous. Then it dawned on me that it wasn't that he didn't know about fashion -- It was that he was old enough not to care anymore."
  • We still have the 22 pound cat in the house. I think I've entered that phase of my life where I just don't care anymore and just have fun. The Kids love him. Mrs. LL loves him. The Dogs don't know what to think about him. I've got to tell you, it's a pretty good feeling.
  • BagOfNothing sent my a birthday gift: An American flag lapel pin. Genius comedy.
  • Cruz about Trump: "He's losing it!"
  • The Republican presidential race is like watching an episode of The Bachlerotte. A bunch of guys acting nuts as the go after the Prize.
  • Ever since it was pointed out that Bernie Sanders sounds like Larry David I no longer can focus on what he is saying.
  • Megyn Kelly's new hair style is smokin' hot. Mrs. LL strongly disagrees. 
  • The boys from The Ticket are in San Francisco for the Super Bowl and most of them have taken a trip to Alcatraz. It sounds beyond fascinating.
  • I'm the last thing from being a "people person" but if I ever see anyone on the first floor of the courthouse absolutely confused as to where they should go, I cannot stop myself from asking if I can help. Hey, I'm no saint but there is something about understanding the potential intimidation of the courthouse that causes me to help. And they are always so thankful.
  • I watched the first episode of the O.J. Simpson mini-series last night. Verdict: Pretty, pretty, pretty good. 
  • Want to feel old? Janet Jackson's Control album came out 30 years ago today. I actually saw her with a girlfriend at Reunion Arena after buying scalper tickets in downtown Dallas as we were stuck in traffic. (They were awful seats.)
  • There seems to be a wreck every day on I-35 right before 820. I drive that road a lot because of driver's license hearings. I can tell you why there are wrecks: It is under construction and the lane markings which have been moved, removed, badly painted over, and faded make it almost impossible to tell if you are in a lane or not. 
  • Republican candidates withdrawing from the presidential race because they can't get 1% of the vote in conservative Iowa and then "endorsing" another candidate (See Rick Santorum quitting and endorsing Rubio yesterday) makes me think that the Republicans have no idea how politics works. Boys, you need to get your act together. The old days are gone. It's a new political world. Get ready.
  • Beginning sentence from a new article in Men's Journal: "Sentenced to life for a murder he did not commit, Chris Scott lost everything: the love of his life, his two young sons, a promising future. Exonerated in 2009, he and two other ex-cons are back on the street, fighting to win freedom for more victims of the bare-knuckled Texas justice system."

POTUS correctly stated that Muslims have been part of America since it's beginnings. The first Barbary war in 1801 is proof.

Bear said...

So the Left's attack on Christians will stop now?

Islam is not a religion.
It is a political machine.
Even I knew that.

It looks like Barry's hiatus on ridiculing Republicans is over. Barry either knows he is going to lose the election or he is trying to go full Trump and say anything. You are going to need those R votes Barry. By all means keep pointing out the circus that is the Republican race....but perhaps you should point out some of the comedy on the other side as well. There is plenty of material over there as well.

The Democratic presidential race is like watching an episode of The Curse of Oak Island. A bunch of guys acting LIKE nuts as the go after the Prize.

The "Beginning sentence" you've quoted from the article about Chris Scott's sentence is actually two sentences.

You failed to mention that a couple of Democrat hopefuls have also dropped out of the race because they couldn't drum up enough interest.
And while there aren't as many contenders left, how is it any different on the Democrat side, Bachelorette-wise? Those two are just as willing to slip into the hot tub (shudder!) to seduce the American voter.

The courthouse can seem confusing at first, but it's not that big a building. It only takes a few minutes to traverse the hallways on every floor. I'm not trying to discourage you from being helpful, but you're denying the Lewises & Clarks of the county their opportunity to set out on a personal Voyage of Discovery there, Sacagawea.
A hundred years from now, there's sure to be a plaque on the lawn commemorating your tireless efforts!

I work in the Courthouse in a neighboring county. I do the exact same thing. People enter the Courthouse and look right then left and you can see they have no idea where they need to go. 9 times out of 10 they are looking for the tag office or the JP1's office to pay a ticket.

I missed the first episode of the OJ miniseries but strangely enough at the same time was watching a recording of the deposition tapes. Pretty good too.

Ticket Fans: Apparently Donovan would not care for todays RTG. She is not over 200.

Wow! Only a non-Christian would believe that Christians are not being persecuted in America and around the world.

Now even TF is complaining that BG is calling out R's for things the D's might also have going on.

So nothing on the lawyer suing towns with less than 5k people to remove sex offender laws restricting them where to live? Rhome and Alvarado have fallen. Justin is next...

Yes but do they ALL have to tell us about their trip to the Alcatraz. Redundant redundancy....

Pretty sure she was not financially responsible for the cost of either. Throw in the tat....also

Christians being persecuted is not news...been goin on for centuries.

You act like this is something new.

Christianity is not the only persecuted religion either

RTG looks a lot like Holly Halston!

Yum!!

Christians being persecuted around the world? Absolutely. Here in America? Nope.

Remember, "persecuted" American Christians, that on Judgment Day you'll get to stand next to people who - at the same point in history as you - were beheaded for their faith.

Damn! I only come here to read Wordy's comments in order to feel better about my own level of intelligence.

Where are you today, lil' buddy?

"et tu, TF?"

That makes it sound as if my criticism is a surprise attack, but the point of my metaphorical dagger has always been plainly visible, though used sparingly in the political "Forum". The difference is that I usually just break the skin and back away.
The plethora of slings and arrows he dodges from the right flank on a daily basis precludes my sense of needing to dogpile

Man...when I hear fundamental Christians talk, I power down. Who is attacking Christianity? I have never heard anyone being refused service because they are a Christian. I have never heard of anyone (in America) getting lynched because they are Christian. I have never heard of anyone interrupting a church service and making the obvious comparison to Hogwarts School of Magic. Who exactly is attacking Christians?

Glad to see Obammy is finally openly practicing his religion. After all, he did say the most beautiful sound in the world is the Muslim call to prayer.

Charlie Strong isn't going anywhere soon. He's finally rid of most of the deadweight Mack left him saddled with and has a potent offense coordinator on staff. Hot sports opinion... Longhorns go to a bowl next season and are Big 12 champs the year after that. Hook'em.

I agree. I was afraid the two old people were going to pull the tennis balls off the legs of their walkers, and throw them at each other.

That Men's Journal story is heart-breaking to say the least, but thankfully this country still has some good men out there, like Scott.
