The Campaign For DA

3.11.2016

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • I'm going to need signatures on a petition to get me on the ballot for District Attorney in the fall. I'll be posting a link later today on how it works. #MakeTheDistrictGreatAgain #INeedATruckCap #Fabulous #Luxurious #I'llBuildAWallOnMontagueBorder #TheyWillPayForIt
  • "Rainy Days and Mondays [Through Saturdays] Always Get Me Down"
  • Dr. Ben Carson is going to endorse Donald Trump? You still want him as your brain surgeon?
  • I went up to the courthouse yesterday to retrieve my umbrella and ended up in a 30 minute discussion on socialism.  I got drawn out of my three point stance. I'm neither for or against it but I love talking about it. I told one of the courthouse workers that I bust my butt working but I suspect she busts her butt more, yet I got to go to Hawaii last year and she could not. How is that fair? It was the Socratic Method of fueling the discussion and it was fantastic.
  • Monroe, Louisiana has receive 20.97" of rain. Somebody needs to check on those Duck Dynasty boys. 
  • Star-Telegram headline: "Controversial African Elephants Land At Alliance Airport". Controversial? They part of the Black Panther Party or something?
  • Crazy discussion yesterday with someone: If you were under indictment and facing prison and you wanted to flee, could you get away with it? The first thing on the other person's list of things to do: Plastic surgery. 
  • Email I received yesterday: "Ok here is a tip that sounds gay, but is not gay.  If you are interested in kayak fishing, search kayak fishing on Pinterest.  They have a ton of cool stuff and modifications that folks have made to trick up their kayaks."
  • I'm totally concur with BagOfNothing's comment about Anna Kendrick. She jazzes me to no end.
  • Note to local and national news sites: If you have a link to a story that has a story but also has a video that automatically plays, I'm out. 
  • I had someone pass me and almost hit me in a school parking lot for the opportunity to sit and wait one car spot in front of me for two minutes until the doors opened. I so wanted to go off of him/her for being a moron. And that's why I don't need a CHL.

It's simple, you busted your butt and went to law school...she didn't.

How to disappear:
1) Understand the legal ramifications
2) Know that you must go alone
3) Understand what you're running from
4) Get rid of certain possessions
5) Disconnect yourself
6) Get rid of the plastic
7) Lie
8) Gather your resources
9) Leave town
10) Cultivate new habits

It's hard, but very possible.

Skippy, Did you really want to go off of him/her?

"that's why I don't need a CHL"

Yeah bu THAT'S why you don't need a CHL...[Facepalm]

Skippy, the reason you don't need a CHL is because the loud bang would cause you to soil yourself.

Montage county people are fools. They have a bonna fied idiot on commissioner court ,plus he doesn't take baths or shower.

I am eager to sign!

You went to law school and she did not. Probably not in your case but lots of people in your position have a huge student loan to pay back but did so to be a successful lawyer. Lots of successful businessmen took huge risks and loans to gain that success but you think they don't deserve a higher wage than the secretary answering the phone. I can't believe that someone as intelligent as you could honestly be for socialism. No way!! You just don't want to sound too republican!!

Skippy, since you are a liberal weenie, does that mean that dead people and cartoon characters can sign your petition?

Regarding your conversation with said woman and socialism, I think a better analogy representing your brand would have been to explain, that some in society get to retreat to their dachas and some get to look forward to standing in a line in hope of their bread and vodka being doled out for the day.

But if you got a CHL, you'd probably have to get one of those scary gun thingies for it to be useful.

1) walling off montage is a good start, add in taking care of that mess Decatur calls 51 South and I'd actively campaign for you.

2) if you didn't leave a space in front of you, that person couldn't have done that. Don't be an enabler.

I think your effort to run for DA is similar to Trump's run for president: he didn't really want to win but now it looks like he might (remember the crazy crap Trump was saying early on about POW's? He was trying to lose). You didn't put in the effort to get in on the primary because you don't really want to win (why retire after two terms just to run again years later?). You just want the DA to get rid of your nemesis assistant DA, who's a good guy even if you don't like his style. The worst that happens is you win, you fire a prosecutor and add four more years onto your county retirement. But that's like Cool Hand Luke, when asked why he chopped off the tops of those parking meters (which is why he went to jail): "Just settling some old scores." You should stay in private practice and beat them in court. Please don't use the unsuspecting citizens of Wise County to settle an old score.

Here's a tip: Kayaking is NOT the only thing you do that "sounds" gay.

Controversial elephants...are those the tiny ones that the guy from Russia is stopping by to pick up and go with his tiny giraffes? anytime those scientist guys and gals start jacking with the DNA strand its got controversy written all over it.

".....How is that fair? ...."

Come on. Prove you're a socialist. Give her your money to buy her a trip.

People say they don't want socialism. They go to public school, drive on public highways and drink municipal tap water, draw Social Security checks and have Medicare. But they hate socialism...

Anonymous said...

@1:34:


None of what you mention are socialistic ideas. Socialism involves social ownership (or control) of corporations, based upon the central tenet that the actions taken by the individual or the corporations should benefit society, rather than the individual.


We just love our freedom and our right to pursue success as we desire. So please feel free to "Get your Bern On," but leave the rest of us alone.

But that's democratic socialism, so it's okay.

Wait a minute...I see what you did there...

1:34 My kids are in private school, we drink well water, I don't draw SS, and I pay for private insurance. I can't avoid the roads though, but yes, I hate socialism. If I had my say we would privitize everything.

2:38, you seem to grasp the concept of socialism well. As such, you should apply that knowledge and realize that socialism is not what Bernie is selling.

I was in Denton the other day and some TWU gals were passing out Bernie bumper stickers. One of them asked me if I'd like to feel the "bern"....I told her no thank you, I caught the clap once before, but I was flattered she asked! I gave her my # and told her to call me when it clears up!

Me too Barry. I could not possibly be allowed to carry a gun while driving...I go off very easily when other drivers piss me off.

People seem to be confusing socialism with communism. Is Memaw a communist because she draws a Social Security check and uses Medicare? Are you a communist when you drive on a public road?
