The Campaign For DA

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.
