The Campaign For DA

2.16.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • The Girls In The House went fishing yesterday, and I was trying to tell them they were doing it wrong. Mrs. LL sternly said, "Leave them alone. They are having fun." For once in my life I decided just to shut up. They were having fun. 
  • Donald Trump is crazy. Donald Trump is going to win South Carolina. And he is still threatening to run as an Independent. Delicious.
  • I don't care about the NBA but did I hear yesterday about an outrageous score in the All Star Game? Why play it?
  • Mark Cuban was on The Ticket this morning. I've always said he is a snake oil salesman and his appearance today did nothing to change my mind. And you Mav's fans realize that he has simply ridden on Dirk all these years, right? And he didn't even draft Dirk. 
  • Nothing  makes me laugh more than when WBAP's Hal Jay says, "That guy is an idiot!" 
  • The 7th Grader In The House was looking at someone through a telescope this weekend. When she first looked she said, "This is creepy [to do this]". One minute later she said, "This is cool!"
  • FBC of Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress has a new book? Between writing and his Fox News appearances how does he have time to be a pastor. Seriously: When is the last time he went to a hospital to visit someone in need?
  • Since I'm the chief meteorologist of the Liberally Lean Weather Center I do declare* I've never seen warm weather like this. (*Read that again with a southern accent.)
  • I went 48 hours this weekend without watching TV. But I did have the Internet to mess with so I won't call it a total victory.
  • "ROCHESTER, N.Y. (CBS) – Authorities say a Rochester judge has been arrested on a drunken driving charge after being pulled over on her way to court."
  • "Texas School Teacher Linked to Drug Gang Allegedly Running from Justice." And, by the way, pretty, pretty hot.

I can't remember the year, but probably late 90's we got to the upper 80's and pushing 90 degrees in late February. All the trees, and roses started to bloom and then it dropped below freezing again...

If they were in need then they must be liberals not worthy of his time.

My take on Trump:

Trump has spent approximately $3,000,000,000 of his own money on his campaign. He's received more publicity, for the TRUMP brand, than he could have ever acquired even had he spent ten times as much. At Trump's current spending rate, he'll spend approximately $10,000,000,000 by the time the Repubs nominate a candidate. If TRUMP isn't the Repub nominee, he'll run as an Independent, assuring a Democrat win in 2016, we've ALL known that ALL along. If TRUMP wins the Repub nomination and wins/loses the election in 2016 he will assure a Democrat win in 2016. Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 election, Trump still gets a TRAINLOAD for his "investment" of running for POTUS.

The Trump Chumps who believe Trump is a conservative/Republican are people who are dumber than dirt. Trump Chumps who scream, "Reagan was a Democrat before he became a Republican." are useful idiots. Ronald Reagan was a practicing Republican for TWENTY YEARS prior to running for POTUS, unlike Trump who's NEVER voted for a Republican and has claimed being a Republican for approximately 12 MONTHS.

I've come to the conclusion, the RNC is dumber and a LOT worse at politics than the DNC. However, both are still sh!t.

"Trump...Trump...Trump...delicious" - You understand that the Democrat situation has Republicans salivating as well, right?

- Hillary Clinton's private e-mail shenanigans are under investigation by both the State Department and the FBI, neither of which is a branch of the "vast right-wing conspiracy."
- The State department issued a subpoena to the Clinton Foundation about possible wrongdoing in its dealings with Hillary Clinton's state department.
- Judicial Watch just released the independent counsel's memo (obtained through the Freedom of Information Act) laying out the criminal case against Hillary Clinton for the Whitewater scandal. (Also released was their reason for not pursuing such charges: No way in hell would a jury ever convict a sitting first lady.)

Democrats better hope Biden's warming up in the bullpen.

Why play the NBA All-Star game? Why play any professional sports game? For entertainment purposes.

Plus, it allows the league to try out new rules that might later be adopted to improve play/entertainment in the regular season. See, e.g., the NFL moving point-after kick attempts to the 15-yard line - first done in the Pro Bowl, then changed for the regular season. And it created drama all season, up to and including the AFC Championship, when a guy who had made 500+ straight PATs in a row missed one, which arguably cost his team a berth in the Super Bowl.

Who are you to judge anyone on what charitable acts they do or don't do. You do next to nothing for anyone other than yourself. Some people have a life time of giving to others. Not you, baby Green. Not you. No, no no. Nada. Bupkis. Bag of Bupkis. Zilch. You claim to visit your dirtbag clients in jail. Oh how generous of you mister banker boy.

I absolutely agree with basically every word you wrote. This of course causes great distress on my part and I may take several zanex, have three beers and drive fast down the freeway. But, Alas the damn conservative side of me would never allow such physical irresponsibility.

Jeffress new book: Do you really think HE wrote it? Wrong! Somewhere on staff there is a person who writes for him.

Ed Young over at Fellowship claims authorship to a lot of books. Excerpt from the acknowledgement page of "Fifty Shades of They", the book he baptized (yeah, right...he says he baptized a book)!

Back to the acknowledgement: "I would also like to thank some of the amazing team at Fellowship Church. To Andy Body, Derric Bonnot, LeeBeth Young, and Calen Chrestman -- thank you for your dedication and drive in composing, developing, writing, and editing these pages."

A pastor visiting members of his congregation who are sick isn't "charitable acts." It's his job.

Making politically inspired appearances on a TV-news network? Not so much. And don't pretend his appearances on there are for evangelical purposes - people aren't being led to Christ as a result of his self-promoting appearances on Fox.

The pastor at Victory refused to visit my in-laws when mother-in-law was dying of cancer. Both were members of the church, just not wealthy members.

Then when father-in-law died a few months after, he still would not visit with him. He said he wanted to work with the young of the church, not the old.

Organized religion is not about the faith, it is about the $$$$.

You would think that if your church members were about to meet Jesus, you would want them to put in a good word for you to the "boss".

I bet if you met Mark Cuban face to face you would be a timid little awe-struck boy. And then later, you would lie and make up some stuff like you shook his hand really hard and looked him right in the eye.

I think you have the Pro bowl mixed up with preseason games regarding your extra point comment. The league experimented with the longer extra point attempt for 2 weeks during preseason in 2014.

The Pro bowl modifies several rules, most are to prevent injury, especially to the QB. For example, on blitzes, only a max of 5 players may rush the QB.

Looks like we're both right, in part. You're correct that they made that change in the 2014 preseason, but they moved it back to the 20.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/03/26/nfl-will-test-longer-extra-points-for-two-weeks-in-the-preseason/

I'm correct in that they moved it back in the 2015 Pro Bowl, too - this time to the 15, which is where they ended up when they actually changed the rules.

I'm glad they didn't go with the "skinny" goal posts, however.

If some star athletes can visit hospitals, shouldn't a preacher or one of his underlings be able to do the same?

Working with those that are part of your flock but less fortunate is part of the job.

MzChief - you make some really good points.

Trump can brag that he spent his own money on the campaign,and thus not say that he is in the pockets of those who want to "buy" the next President.

Though not a Trump fan, this guy has a bit of brilliance. He has EXPOSED the political establishment for what it is. Give money - expect something in return - oh a cabinet position would be nice, or........well, the list goes on and on.

If Trump is in the pockets of the Clintons to win this election, somebody is pretty dang smart to figure that one out.

Our government is owned by (fill in the blanks)........

I am glad Donald Trump is running for President. He may have opened Pandora's box for America's political ignorance.
