The Campaign For DA

3.14.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • I'll have The Official Liberally Lean NCAA Basketball Bracket For College Teams Which Has No Prize [insert trademark] up in a few minutes.  Edit: It should be here. Tell me if you have any problems, and please vote responsibly. And get those funny names ready.
  • CBS decided to make it a two hour presentation of the seedings for the tournament and then someone decided to release an absolutely accurate bracket on Twitter that had been leaked.
  • Baylor plays Yale in the first round. That will be the whitest crowd in the history of ever. 
  • I've developed a serious case of the hiccups and they keep coming back. That hasn't happened in years. 
  • I caught another fish! Yay! It swallowed the entire lure. Boo!
  • "Alabama deputy shoots dog after man loses everything in trailer fire, arrests him for disorderly conduct, on video"
  • An off-duty Farmer's Branch officer shot and killed a 16 year old in Addison last night. 
  • "At Austin event, Mark Cuban calls Ted Cruz ‘worst politician in Texas’"
  • I repaired a bed this weekend which had slats that had collapsed. I used 2x4s, a circular saw, and a Mikata drill. Mrs. LL said there is no way it will hold up. I bet money that it would and gave her 10 to 1 odds. I forgot the supports underneath and I hope it held up or this will be expensive.
  • I've never understood the media saying they have an "exclusive interview". Isn't that 99% of interviews?
  • Texas has gone from a drought to a rain forest.
  • Mrs. LL knew where I went on Saturday and asked me about it, and I have no idea how she knew. I actually laughed. I've got nothing to hide and that's a good feeling. 
  • The end of the Oklahoma/WVU game was incredible. I'll name it "The Shot That Never Was."
  • Uncovered: In November a pastor called for the execution of gays and then introduced Ted Cruz. "Kevin Swanson: Yes, Romans Chapter 1 verse 32 the Apostle Paul does says [sic] that homosexuals are worthy of death. His words not mine! And I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! And I am not ashamed of the truth of the word of God. And I am willing to go to jail…."

If you didn't use bailing wire on the bed, it's going to fail.

I am increasingly of the opinion that if its not in the red letters, it's not necessarily what Jesus intended. Paul is a prime example, he had issues that I don't believe Jesus would appreciate. Killing people, if any persuasion, is one of them.

Hey, evangelicals - want to know why your numbers are dwindling and people are leaving the "church" in droves? Because of people like Kevin Swanson, Robert Jeffress, and Ted Cruz. And your inexplicable support of Donald Trump sheds full light on the fact that the modern American evangelical movement has everything to do with the gospel of self-attainment of wealth and power, and nothing to do with the gospel of Christ.

Not a fan of Cruz, but to call him the worst politician in Texas discounts all the others in competition for that title - mainly, Greg Abbott. Though Cruz is carrying Abbott's endorsement now. That's not helping the situation.

Ok, so who broke the bed with miss LL while you were out depleting the our freshwater fisheries?

WCM Update reports special exec session called for Rhome CC under 551.074 re: Chief Davis. Did the DA get a conscious and decide to have the Rangers investigate recent and ongoing behaviors that can only be categorized as official misconduct and oppression? Or are Wilson, BeCraft, Robison and Moore ready to double his salary and give him a 3 year extension on his recently renewed 3 year contract? With this group who knows.

Ted Cruz scares me even more than Trump. The inmates have control of the Republican asylum.

Just thought I would ask. Was driving through Decatur yesterday and there were these crazy built outdoor play houses. Does anyone know the company or person that is building these?

What had Brandon Davis done now... Saw that he is on the agenda for a city council meeting tonight...Must have been a good one for them call a special meeting and he is the only agenda item..

Maybe it's time for Rhome citizens to "petition" your state representative and senator for review of your local government and goings on. It's obvious the public trust is long since broken in not only CC but also the Chief of Police. Your General Law form of government is created by the Constitution of the State of Texas and the State legislature has a fiduciary responsibility over it. The DA reports only to the voters and the only control you have over him is at the ballot box (sign Barry's petition and vote for him). The CC has the power but lacks the conscious to order an independent review of the goings on. Odd since CC claims they are following all the rules and law to the letter with nothing to hide. Something needs to be done before Rhome ends up the subject of a 20/20 episode where "everyone saw the signs but no one did anything to stop it".

Liberals always talk about tolerance and diversity but come up with dumbass quotes like yours about the Baylor vs. Yale game. As a Conservative, I would like to submit a quote that you might want to revisit.

That last bullet point is similar to the one of the Rhome police Chief calling out lesbians on social media.

From the looks of things, Rhome residents need to call the Dept of Justice. There is one hell of a mess in that town

Rhome forward dot com needs to be updated. They should add the petition link and number to the DA to complain.

Just adored Hillary's stump the other day berating "bullies" in reference to Trump and his supporters.

Meanwhile the number of women that her husband has coerced, stymied, harassed, and downright assaulted for sexual favors would fill up a semi.

Keep up the good work…..

They will give him a raise because they will be gone soon. Long time supporters of David Wilson are even supporting the Ellis slate.

Gotta say....after watching the dog shooting video... I believe the policeman was justified.... a dog lunging and barking aggressively in the dark. Shoot the dog.

As for the arrest of the man... the verdict proved what should have happened....innocent.... have some understanding .... idiot police work from that aspect.

You clearly do not know much about Yale University and the makeup of its student population. Very diverse, from all over the U.S., and probably less than half the students are white, if I had to bet on it.

I think that this is how the September 11th terrorist pilots would be described in today's "it can't be the criminal's fault" world..."Yesterday, two muslim youths were killed when struck by a building that was constructed years ago partially with funds invested by the New York Police Department pension fund."

"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you." (Deuteronomy 4:2)

If you add to His Words, you make yourself a liar: “Add thou not unto [God’s] words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (Proverbs 30:6)

Prohibition on altering God’s Word is not limited to the Old Testament. The closing verses of the New Testament contain a very strong warning against tampering with God’s Word:

Revelation 22:18,19

18. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Why do you assume Yale is so white? Because it's known as prestigious and Ivy League and selective of the "best" applicants? In other words, you just assume that non-whites are too dumb to go to Yale? Yale is mostly non-white, by the way. Are you one of those "everyone's equal" on the outside and "not so much" on the inside kind of people?

Wow. What a liar. Citing a passage in the Bible does not at all mean the Pastor thinks gays should be executed.

If he cited a passage in the Bible that said "all women are worthy of love", would the headline be that the Pastor wants to have sex with all women?

The word evangelical is usually thrown around by someone who hasn't a clue what the word means. It would be interesting to know what the news media considers the word to mean.

Then tell me, what is the original meaning of Ecclesia, and how id the Catholic church change it?
