The Campaign For DA

3.15.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • Liberally Lean Pic' Em Tournament. Funniest name so far is "Foul Hooked Catfish" which is a callback joke from Random Thoughts last week. (Pay the man, Shirley.)
  • "A Weatherford High School senior was killed Monday morning in a hunting accident in Wise County, a spokesman for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department confirmed." I wonder if it was part of the tournament that is going on.
  • Trump might very well win, for all intents and purposes, the Republican nomination tonight. 
  • I once sent out a press release as DA and used the phrase "intensive purposes" because that is what I thought the phrase was. The Messenger corrected it for me before it went to press.
  • Jeff Miller, the NFL’s senior vice president for health and safety, acknowledged a causal relationship between football-related head trauma and chronic traumatic encephalopathy Monday. Three thoughts: (1) Finally, (2) I wonder if this admission was authorized and, if not, did Roger Goodell had a heart attack?, and (3) This was during a "roundtable discussion on concussions convened by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce"  That committee was discussing the NFL? 
  • Has the Fort Worth PD pepper spraying cop been fired yet?
  • The Senior In The House woke up yesterday, put on big dark glasses, and walked the dog. Her normally pretty hair was a mess. She looked just like the daughter in Vacation.
  • I can't remember the product, but I heard a radio commercial this morning that referenced "intelligent molecules". Idiocracy.
  • I missed the story yesterday of the guy who fled from the cops and was found in a barn in Wise County after a dog was used to locate him.  We had a regular John Wilkes Booth there. At least the barn wasn't set on fire. (Sidenote: Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson is one of the best history books I've ever read.)
  • Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg turns 83 today.
  • Mrs. LL is wearing out the kayak. I told her she's going to have arms like Hulk Hogan before the summer is over. 
  • I watched an old 30 for 30 on the USFL this weekend and it is a must see for any football fan. And then it turns its cross-hairs and Donald Trump who basically destroyed the league. There is nothing more entertaining when they show him the check from the NFL and the USFL sued them. The jury verdict was one dollar.

And I bet you could care less about you incorrect usage of intents and purposes, right BG?

That's the funniest name? Really?

It was idiocracy in last week's mumblings and it's idiocracy now.

That's an awkward reference with the Hulk Hogan v. Gawker Media trial currently going on. Speaks volumes.

Rhome update - no action taken. The beatings will continue until morale improves.

FWPD officer not fired yet. Has been taken off patrol and put on a desk. As of last night no one involved has come forward to press charges.

You never stop and think before you "judge" any law enforcement, do you? You like so many citizens, read a media snipit or watch an edited video and believe the worst! Shame on you of all people! You know it is our right of "innocent until proven guilty" and yet if it wears a badge, that is not necessary in your eyes! And you wanna be a D.A. again? COMPLETE IDIOCRACY!!!

Police Officer uses questionable tactic - Has the Fort Worth PD pepper spraying cop been fired yet?

Drunk driver plows into another vehicle - Due process, due process!

Hypocrisy much?

I always thought it was "for all in tents and porpoises" and I only used it when talking about campers who enjoyed mammalian sea life!

People you all have to remember...Barry has mouths to feed.

Due process means all the palms need to be greased.....right?

Share some insights counselor?

You give too much credit to Trump and his supporters. The establishment will right the ship, and business as usual will carry on.

Mark my words.

WFAA fb page has a write up of the teen dying on Monday in Wise County. It was a hog hunting accident. They won't tell how the accident happened or what killed him...guessing he was shot.

The NFL should have paid the USFL 100 pennies.
