The Campaign For DA

2.09.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Two trains collided head on in Germany this morning killing at least 10. How does that happen?
  • On vacation as a kid in San Francisco (cue orchestra music), we went to the Winchester Mansion. Maybe the most fascinating place ever. The widow of the gun guy believed that so long as she continued to add on to her home she would never die. 
  • I don't have any trouble with Cam Newton's short answers in the post loss press conference at the Super Bowl. I'll take honest feelings over canned answers any day.
  • I've not yet seen any one "open carry" a handgun yet.
  • It always takes me about five minutes to realize how mad I am about something that happened. It happened yesterday.
  • Johnny Manziel may be a nut, but I bet his girlfriend is a nut as well.
  • His girlfriend obtained a "Protective Order".  Look, I bet I've seen a hundred women ask for one in the Wise County Attorney's Office over the years. Unlike  most court documents, those are truly just a "piece of paper." It means nothing. If a guy is crazy enough to assault you, an 8 1/2" X 11" white sheet will not stop them. 
  • Baylor students protested outside the home of Kenneth Starr about allegations of sexual assault by the football team. I don't know if the allegations are true, but I love the irony that the target is Kenneth Starr. How many millions did he cost you back in the day? 
  • When I was watching Beyonce at the Super Bowl do one of "moves" I fired off a "good lord!" Mrs. LL fired back, "You do far worse with those Random Thought Girls!" Good point.
  • The dumbest politician in Texas is Konni Burton. Cluesless. Pure clueless. (And to beat Jonathon Stickland in this category takes a lot.)
  • Rubio might be a robot. 
  • If we don't have a hard freeze to kill off all the pollen, Mrs. LL and I might die of sneezing.
  • Every year around this time there will be a ton of radio ads for berries and pajamas. But this morning the pajama ad ran and said there was a "hidden secret" in the back. 
  • 7th grader in the house to me this morning: "I've got to be at school at 6:00 tomorrow because I made the softball team."

The QB and leader of a professional football team, and a person that's paid millions upon millions of dollars, pouted and then got up and walked out of a press conference after a hard fought Super Bowl game. He left his teammates and coaches to then deal with "what's up with Cam" instead of taking on himself as a leader would. He could take a cue from the Vikings kicker who missed an easy field goal and broke the hearts of all his teammates and Vikings fan. This is the same QB who "dabs" and dances and draws all sorts of attention to himself, on purpose, and was named the most valuable player in the entire league. There's a way to be disappointed and upset with the grace and class that comes with the position you hold. Nothing wrong with his emotions being out there, nothing wrong with him being upset; he should be; but being a big baby about it?

Are you sure there weren't any Democrats that could compete for dumbest politician in Texas?
JWP comes to mind in Dallas.
Sheila Jackson Lee has JWP beat though.

It was Cam's immaturity and petulant attitude that was the problem. Not a good look for a leader. You can give honest, candid answers without being acting a fool. What would people think about you if this is how you acted after you lost a case? You would be out of business!

Also, you know damn well if the shoe was on the other foot and Manning acted that way, you would be the first to be outraged and calling for punishment!

Two trains collided. How does that happen?

-This may be a wild assed guess, but I'd say its usually when one is headed North/South, East/West. Vice versa.

How does that happen? - Essentially, it means that two trains were on the same track, approaching each other.

I'll take honest feelings over canned answers any day. - Because you're a contrarian. Most of the rest of the world thinks that a guy in Newton's position should exhibit at least a small measure of social grace.

If a guy is crazy enough to assault you, an 8 1/2" X 11" white sheet will not stop them. - Funny, this is what the 2A supporters have been saying for years.

...I love the irony that the target is Kenneth Starr. - One suspects you simply like the fact that Starr is being targeted, whether ironic or not.

2 trains. 1 track. Opposite directions.

"I've not yet seen any one "open carry" a handgun yet."
It has not been a problem in any of the other 44 states that have allowed open carry for many years.

"If a guy is crazy enough to assault you, an 8 1/2" X 11" white sheet will not stop them."
Agreed. Likewise, it is way against the law, and even enhanced, and has been for a very long time, to assault someone with a deadly weapon. When someone assaults another person with a firearm, they violate umpteen laws. If we make it umpteen plus some more, what difference will that make? State the logic behind the idea of adding more laws which only serve to further restrict law abiding citizens. If we make it harder for everyone to obtain an automobile, what effect will that have on drunk driving? If we regulate spoons, will that prevent an obese person from eating another bowl of pudding? If your reaction to those points and others like them is "those points are tired and old". The reason they are still around is that they are never addressed, we simply change the subject, and the problem remains. Can we come up with an effective way to prevent deranged people bent on mayhem from being able to carry out their dastardly plan?

I have said this for years!... You subject your female readers to the Random Though Girls. We would like equal time...There should be Random Thought Guys out of mutual respect! Many already name-call you on this site as being "gay" anyway, so know new fall-out there, but you would be making your female readers very happy! "What's good for the goose is good for the gander!" Equality is called for here!

Also, the halftime show of the Super Bowl was a disgrace and I can't believe the NFL approved it! A bunch of punks, acting like punks, whether they are scantly clothed does not make them "un-punk"! They are still punks! And Cam acting like a huge brat over his loss! Cam and Beyonce'...No class! The sad thing is, that America has made them "Stars" and encouraged them by approval! They are punks and brats and if your "average citizen" acted like that, chances are, their actions would accompany arrest for other similar actions. And if a white person were to sing a song with the "N" word in it, there would be protests that would burn the stadium down! What if Law enforcement took to the field, and sang about "Punks and Brats" using the N word. I have no respect for Punks and Brats and teach my kids that is exactly what they are... not "Stars" to look up to! That is part of the problem with today's society in America!

Climbing down from my soap box now...

Tell me again how important it is for us to tighten gun control measures.

Thank you 12:32

You have to remember one thing about this blog. This is Barry's little social experiment. He doesn't care AT ALL about what is right or wrong. This whole thing is a trolling expedition for his entertainment. He enjoys frustrating the masses. It's all a big joke to him. Barry is the smart guy in the room.

Sexual assault is a criminal matter, not a university matter. Move that protest to the DA if he aint too busy trying to find some evidence of murder on 200 bikers.

Sorry, but having a PO on record can very well mean something; and I will guarantee that it has caused a certain percentage of idiots to at least think twice, or have someone else close to them intercede, before they went off did something they should not have.
