The Campaign For DA

3.21.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • "FORT WORTH - A Fort Worth officer who avoided criminal prosecution on allegations that he assaulted his wife in Kaufman County has been fired from the department after officials say their own investigation uncovered evidence that the assault did occur." That is law enforcement chaos.
  • Is it just me, or TxDot put up/replace a ton of those green highway signs in Wise County?
  • Real tweet by that goofy Sheriff Joe: "We will not be intimidated by these [Trump] protesters, especially in a town that I run." A town you run? Where are you? Dodge City in the 1800s?
  • FBC Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress is promoting an Alaskan cruise. And you know he's getting a cut.  The 30 second ad even includes a "comedian" who suggest you purchase it because "your kids don't need your inheritance." And what follows from the web site is the most amazing thing I've ever read from a "Christian" minister. It promotes an upgrade with your ticket: "Travel in a new class of Christian luxury. Enjoy an incomparable experience by upgrading to our new Signature Service option of exclusive privileges and luxury amenities for your embarkation and disembarkation days. Make your Christian cruise exactly as you like it by adding the services that suit your travel style." I'm checking my bible for the phrase "Christian luxury". I thought it was right after "blessed are the poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs " but I was mistaken. Incredible. 
  • "Christian luxury"? I'm almost livid. Dear First Baptist of Dallas which has lost its way: Fire that man or just admit you don't care one iota about Christianity. If it does not, every member of that church needs to walk away and let it go down in flames. Talk about Idiocracy.
  • March Madness: Between the Aggie comeback (down 12 with 44 seconds left), the Texas crazy heart breaker, and the SFA heart breaker, that was insane. Baylor just simply got beat. And the Surrender Cobra was everywhere.
  • President Obama visited Cuba this weekend. We are a long time away from the Bay of Pigs.
  • I went to Walmart incognito with a visor and shorts on early yesterday morning only to run into a courthouse employee who almost scared me with a, "What are you doing!"
  • Mrs. LL constructed a porch swing which had about one million parts. 
  • Her craziest question to me as she saw me adjusting limestone bricks with a rubber hammer: (Angrily) "You have a rubber hammer!!!!" Apparently it would have helped in assembly of the porch swing.
  • I didn't watch it but Fox's live "The Passion" putting Jesus in present day with modern music seemed bizarre.
  • I woke up at 4:45 a.m. on Saturday to get the 7th Grader in House to a very early softball game in Benbrook. Mrs. LL would have done it but she had to get her hair "done did."
  • I'm in the process of developing a list of the dumbest Texas elected officials ever. So far I've got Konni Burton, Tim O'Hare (former Farmer's Branch mayor who cost them millions and the worst fill in radio host ever) and Jonathan Stickland.
  • Afterward the softball game, I stopped by the Fort Worth house (cue orchestra music) and noticed that the grass was slightly high. I decided to pull out a manual spinning mower that we are storing for Mrs. LL's mom. It was the first time I had used it and, let me tell you something, not bad at all. But the funniest part was when my 80 year old Russian neighbor who doesn't speak a bit of English walked over and stared at it. He then took it from me and then began mowing my lawn. He either thought it was space age technology or it brought back memories of his days in Mother Russia.

"President Obama visited Cuba this weekend." I read about this visit in a USA Today story which mentioned the "Obama doctrine." My first thought was "Alienate America's allies; reward and encourage America's enemies." Obama's attitude from the first moment he took office was that America needed to be taken down a peg or two. Mission accomplished. It will take decades for the country to recover from his time in office, if we recover at all.

Thanks mr president. About time. 50 years of sanctions only hurts the average joe in Cuba. Sanction were nothing more than tool to keep Florida in GOP column. Cuban illegals get special treatment tho they are fleeing same poverty Mexican are

Of course wordkyle would be happier if Bautista and his American cronies were still in power.

I hate this time of the year when the pagan Christians get wound up with Easter, Goddess of Fertility, rabbits, and chicken eggs-all signs of fertility and nothing to do with the Passover lamb. Many of them get up Easter morning to worship the sun.

It's about time our policy towards Cuba changes. It's been nearly 60 years and Castro and/or his faction is still in power. The old policy didn't work. Maybe if we overpower the Cuban people with capitalism - tourism, new buildings, the internet, all the stuff we take for granted etc. etc. the Cuban people will take care of the Castros themselves. It worked in Europe.

You would have pouted the rest of the day if someone hadn't recognized you. And you sported a visor! How manly of you. Did you do the jazz hands whilst walking the aisles? Ladies with attitude are more likely to vote for a feller if he does the jazz hands.

You couldn't find a single Dem to put on that list Skippy?
Dallas County alone could double the size of your list.
But I digress Mr. Libertarian.

Well, kiddies, Obama's approach hasn't worked with the rest of the world. (Although the article does cite Myammar, one of worst violators of human rights in the world, as an Obama success.) China, Libya, Syria, Russia (featuring Hillary "Reset" Clinton), Iran -- all could express their appreciation with a heartfelt "Thanks, Obama."

Wordkyle - It's too late. The left has already infected every part of Western civilization. I wonder how many times humans have come this far only to collapse back into primitive culture.

Bahahahaha! Wordy is one of these Rednecks that thinks 'murica has to "recover" from Obama's presidency.

Tell us, Wordy... how has your life changed over the past 8 years? What will you, personally, have to recover from? Which one of Obama's policies messed up your life?

That is law enforcement chaos.

Where's the chaos? Certainly the beating might have been chaotic. Is it because the DA didn't prosecute and the chief fired him following an investigation? Are you suggesting the firing violated the officer's civil rights because he wasn't criminally prosecuted?

Sounds pretty orderly to me, given that criminal law and employment law are not one and the same. I don't know the new chief or anything about him, but it doesn't seem out of line to enforce character standards if the conditions of employment support it. Aren't you the one always railing about bad cops?

Of course, could it also be that since it's a story about a seeming disagreement in law enforcement, a certain dapper dandy lawyer can't bear to miss the opportunity to declare *jazz hands* chaos *jazz hands*?

312 - a) List Russia/China "successes;" b) Define "neocon" as it applies to your comment; c) Do the same regarding tactics. You tossed out unsubstantiated opinions using ill-defined buzzwords. Clarify your point, if you don't mind. And if you can.

Hey, BG, you're an attorney, remember? You're NOT THIS STUPID. To fire someone, you're engaging in civil law or administrative law. That only requires a 51% conviction. To convict someone of a crime, you need Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt, which is harder to get to.
