The Campaign For DA

3.22.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • On the heels of the murder of two kids allegedly by the hands of their mother in Benbrook comes this news: "2 adults, 2 children found dead in Sherman home." And this news: Glen Rose mom alleged to have put baby in oven. The country has gone crazy. Or, and here his a hot opinion, the country is on synthetic and prescription drugs because of our idiotic drug policies over the years. 
  • Belgian subway official says there are 26 dead, 130 injured in a series of attacks - two near the American Airlines counter at an airport - today. (Video of people running.) And it caused an officer at DFW Airport to walk around with an AR-15. He later said he does it every day. Anyone ever seen that at DFW?  
  • If you ever want to know how beautiful Belgium is, watch that fantastic movie In Bruges.
  • So Hulk Hogan gets awarded $140 million for being filmed having sex with someone else's wife?  (I don't know if I'm more stunned by that or learning his name is really Terry G. Bollea.)
  • TCU has not won an NCAA tourney game since 1987. They have now hired a coach who was part of that team.
  • I think I'm seeing more crazy drivers than ever before. If you see a red light 100 yards away why weave in and out of traffic to get there quickly?
  • Dear Reagor Dykes: Your latest commercials on The Ticket make you sound like even more of a moron than you have sounded in past ads which so many have mocked. It's basically a defensive, "Don't hate me until you get to know me". And you really believe that "Keeping It Real" is truly a great slogan? 
  • "The University of North Texas brings in more than $11 million in [sports] revenue but also runs up expenses totaling more than $31 million. Its students are asked to subsidize the difference in the form of additional dedicated fees ($165 per semester)."
  • Glenn Beck urging Utah voters to not vote for Trump: “Utah has an incredible opportunity. So many Christians have been standing up. But all throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God. Let us raise a standard in Utah.” 
  • Breaking Mavs news that some of you might care about: Chandler Parsons is out for the year.
  • I'm nearing the 20 year anniversary (next November) where I searched to see if www.wisecounty.com was available. It was and I bought it on the spot.  And like the Drudge Report, I've kept the format simple and easy. At one point there was a discussion between Wise County officials about suing me for having the domain name. I still remember having a talk with a local government lawyer at the time, a friend of mine, where I told him: "Please sue me. I beg you guys to sue me."

Yes, there's crazy in the world, but I think social media has made us more aware of the crazy things.

Trump is calling for waterboarding this morning. I don't care how many attacks or how many Americans die, I side with our President and the major news channels in our great country. You can' torture those bent on killing Americans no matter how many must die.

Can we have more of Wordy claiming that Obama is alienating friends, loving enemies (who else taught that?), and causing America's standing to decline internationally? Because I could use a good chuckle today.

Let's check the math here. Since Roe v. Wade, tens of millions of children have been killed in the womb.

So why would you think some in this country are opposed to killing them out of the womb? It's just a matter of setting, right?

Well, we're in agreement about the movie In Bruges. Greatness. Not only does it show the beauty of Bruges (at Christmas, no less), but it's a great dark comedy showcasing the talents of Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Ralph Fiennes

Yuri: There are a lot of alcoves in the Astridpark. You use this word, alcoves?
Ken: Alcoves, yes. Sometimes.
Yuri: There are not many people around in these alcoves at Christmas time. If I were to murder a man I would murder him here. Are you sure this is the right word, alcoves?
Ken: Alcoves, yes. It's kind of like nooks and crannies.
Yuri: Nooks and crannies, yes! Perhaps this would be more accurate. Nooks and crannies rather than alcoves. Yes. You are going to do it aren't you? Mr. Waters would be very disappointed...

Damn son. You would think 20 years later and with all the help daddy gave you that you would be a much bigger fish in the small pond of wise county. Hey at least you got the ambulances to keep you busy.

Danny Henson has his contract renewed as AD by the School Board 7-0.

Parents in Bridgeport ISD could write you a book about how this AD doesn't give two craps about your kids. About how he won't talk to students, fails to show at events, changes his story after getting money for his pet projects, assigns bad jobs as punishment to coaches, turned a blind eye to students with criminal issues so they could play on Friday night, has put his thumb down on the girls programs for season after season, lived off a 50-50 good ol days Football record for years now, and couldn't even recognize a state champ basketball team with a banner in the gym.

We needed change. We needed inspiring fresh blood in our Athletic program.

But thanks guys, you propped this mess up a few more years on the taxpayers dime.

We appreciate it Tom Talley, Charles Mauldin, Scott Stowers, Jim Bost, Scott Hiler, Lyn Trickel, and Alan Powers. We will remember it the next time you are griping and yelling in the stands and fields about the athletic program. And I hope a lot remember it on election day.

Signed,

Any one of the hundreds of parents who will tell you the same things.

919 - What's to laugh at? Other than your attempt to connect Obama to Jesus? C'mon, be specific, Tiger, you offered a snide opinion now support it. Do you have reasons (based on information) to believe the way you do? Or was yours just another potshot based on ignorance and emotion?

Twenty years! I see The Muse is archived. What about The Spin? Where are the archives of it. I loved reading those, so I guess I've been a BG junkie for a long time.

Burned baby story: "the country is on synthetic and prescription drugs because of our idiotic drug policies over the years".
Really? Just now figuring that out? It began years ago and has only escalated!

1966: The Rolling Stones-Mother's Little Helper's been around a long time!
"'Things are different today,'
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day
Doctor, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more"

Our well intentioned friends on the left will usher in another age of darkness. Most of human history has been characterized by violence and deprivation. We have enjoyed a hundred or so years of relative stability, but leftist don't believe that it has been fair enough.

So easy to figure out:

You allow millions of illegals - that we know from 25 years + knowledge that they cant drive, and you wonder why there are so many crappy drivers on the road??


You allow millions of Muslim males to enter your country to show the would you have a heart, and they stab you in it and blow you up and you are surprised????

Troll much?

I'm more stunned by the fact that Obammy's real name is Barry Sotoro.

Anonymous said...

Yes his name is Barry Sotoro. You change it when you go Muslim.
Cassius Clay to Mohammad Ali
Ferdinand Louis (Lou) Alcindor to Kareem Abdul Jabbar
Barry Sotoro to Barak Hussein Obama

Really surprised you haven't pointed that for us Barry.

What's to laugh at? Well, you, for starters.

139 - Okay, you took a drive by potshot, trying to be clever. I'll ask you the same thing. Can you follow up that piece of wit with some sort of explanation? Or - again - are you fueled by emotion and ignorance? For you to go to the trouble of writing and posting a remark, you must have some sort of idea what you meant.

RE: RTG

I am almost certain that pic is photoshopped for 2 reasons.

One, talons on bare skin. I don't care how tame the raptor is, those talons are sharp and will break the skin. That is why handlers wear leather gloves.

Two, note the shadow, bottom left. The shadow is pretty clear that just the young ladies head and hair are blocking the sunlight. There does not appear to be a shadow of the bird.

844 - First things first, little Anon. Two of your brethren have already offered up attack-lettes without worrying about that messy supporting information valid opinions require. When you're Anonymous you can say whatever you want, then crawl back under a rock when called upon to back it up. That's not participating in the conversation, it's the bratty toddler screaming in the checkout line at Wal-Mart.

Why don't you just present your own hot opinion?

Anonymous said...

844,

Not WK...but that would be Obama. He has not only given them real estate to develop their networks, but has not gone after them in any meaningful way.

The only way to defeat them is to kill them. Obama seems opposed to any of that.

Henson needed to go as well as most of the coaching staff at the high school & middle school! Very disappointing that NOTHING will change now.

Not everyone in Bridgeport agrees with you!! #KeepDannyHenson is our motto.

And, yes, I had children go K-12 in Bridgeport, (recently), and one was even, gasp, a female.

I say KUDDOS!!!! to the B'port school Board for extending his contract, and I, too, will remember on election day!!!

Signed, a Bridgeport Parent Go Bulls!

9:49am--sorry about your bad luck, but we support Coach Henson 100%. And we don't especially want a current coach there named AD if Coach Henson ever leaves Bridgeport..just sayin..
