The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Peyton Manning's retirement speech was perfect until he ended it with "and God bless football."
  • I'm not sure I knew there was a Cool, Texas. The 7th Grader in The House thought that was the greatest name ever. I may form a town named "Smooth" or "Chill".
  • Remember yesterday when I said there would be flooding in Bridgeport and Paradise? This is from the Update this morning:  "The flooding seemed especially bad in the Paradise and Bridgeport areas where numerous water rescues were reported where cars became flooded in high water, and the drivers often had to wait for rescue on the roof." I am a weather expert. Edit: I screwed this quote up it was from yesterday. I'm still an expert, but I made a huge mistake. 
  • And The Star-Telegram says Lake Bridgeport was closed due to "high water". My weather prediction yesterday that it would peak over the Runaway Bay bridge might come true. 
  • Shout out to Boyd PD who gave me a call yesterday after I criticized their video software. I admitted that it was more of a frustration on my end because I had to download some Codec (which I have no idea what it is) to get it run. But the funniest line of the week came from the sergeant after I told him that: "What are you running? Windows 95?"
  • I had forgotten that the shooting in the Southlake town square a couple of years back involved a victim who was an attorney who had allegedly represented the cartel. The case has expanded
  • Random airline I had forgotten: Braniff.
  • "Texas Gov. Greg Abbott forms task force on college affordability, workforce development."  When ever I see the words "task force" I see the words "time waste".
  • I bought sunglasses online yesterday from some company named "Costa". They were glasses perfect for fishing and, after catching one fish so far this year, I'm now a bonafide angler. But when I went to a Dallas Morning News article online this morning there was a Costa ad on the side. That is not by coincidence.
  • This is bizarre: Kyle Odom, the man suspected of shooting Tim Remington after the pastor spoke at a Ted Cruz rally, has been arrested in Washington DC after he  “threw unknown material over the south fence line at the White House complex”.
  • 72 hour rain total for Decatur: 4.72"
  • President Obama will not be at Nancy Reagan's funeral. He will be at South by Southwest in Austin. Bro down. 
  • My dream of "I'm in school but haven't been attending a class and I'm worried" have come back. And they are more intense. 
  • There was someone on the Wise County felony docket this week who had the last name of Compton. As in, straight out of. Made me laugh.
  • I don't think there are more wrecks by any company other than by Fed Ex. There's a new one this morning. Pic. But, hey, I need my sunglasses!!!! Step on the gas and get on it!
  • I'm still laughing. I saw one Wise County male employee walk in on another male Wise County employee in the bathroom (a friend), scream "Good lord", slam the door, and then walk away saying, "I've never seen anything so small". I've always said the third floor could be a sit-com.

Early reports are that the Choom gang are getting together for a reunion of sorts in Austin.
It was a tossup--another 18 rounds

I am very proud of Obama for blowing off Nancy Reagan's funeral and attending SWSX. All that lady did was stare lovingly at her simpleton husband and worship with astrologers.

Regarding your Costa sunglasses. First: Great sunglasses. You won't regret them at all.

Second: Always clear your browsing history and cookies. Never open other tabs when logged into your Google (or Facebook) account as they have the ability to track whatever else is open in those tabs.

Here's a great primer from the Washington Post:

A self proclaimed expert that is surprised by cookies... Obama is attending a music festival. Will there be any tax dollars involved?

President Obama will not be at Nancy Reagan's funeral.

Good. He doesn't have the class or dignity to be in the company of the respectable people who will be there.

Maybe you have not been involved in any good task forces. Usually, there is a specific job or issue to be addressed, and a task force is formed and then disbanded once it's accomplished the purpose for which it was formed; as opposed to committees or other more permanent organizing methods. Task forces, unless created or populated by the wrong people, are not time wastes at all.

I'm surprised Barney the Bullet from Boyd gave you a call yesterday. He must have had time while he was hiding out trying to catch a speeder on 114 in his truck.

I have that skipping class dream all the time. Here is one attempted explanation of it.

"Dreams prepare us for the bad things that are likely to happen in our life,'' Dr. Amen said in a telephone interview. ''They're a dry run, a rehearsal, that help us with survival. How does dreaming about not showing up for a class affect our survival? The answer, I would think, is that education is absolutely critical to how far you advance in life. Failing at it is a threat to your self-esteem, your relationships, your success at work, your life. The dream is helping you to have enough anxiety to stay on track."

This is the last year that Barry (Obama) attends an event like SXSW and isn't heavily compensated. Barry (Obama) is gonna get rich on the speaker circuit.

Many of Barry's (Obama's) wealthy bundlers / contributors will be in Austin too. I wouldn't describe them as bros, but that's just me.

Obama not attending Nancy's funeral will keep the IQ average up. Barry you are a basic understanding of Wise County topography like the rest of us...no one is a weather expert in Texas. Just remember, and ex is a has been....and a spurt is a drip under pressure.

Braniff wasn't random. It was around for decades.

Just when I think you might be involving into a decent human being, you return to your evil, wicked ways & your Narcissism is growing to the point you are almost repugnant!

You have gone back to your constant bullying of anyone who wears a badge, never once having walked a moment in their shoes, nor seen what they see, nor tolerate abuse from people they protect!

Next, You don't know who Greg Laurie is, a man endorsed by Billy Graham, and voice skepticism regarding Harvest Ministries and their Harvest America FREE event, bringing hope to the hurting and lost.

Now, you dare criticize Peyton Manning saying is speech was perfect until he ended it with "God bless Football"! How dare you!

Who do you think you are?

You bring shame to the Green name yet again! I have lost all rekindled respect I had for you.

You are missing the point. Look at all the wonderful things Messicans have brought to this country!

Cartel Murders
Construction that has to be rebuilt in 2 years
Home warranties that provide less
Drugs
Rapes
Shootings
Gangs
Cock Fights
Marijuana fields in our own country
Dog Fights
All forms of illegal gambling
Diseases that were one eradicated in this country
Socialistic Ideas
Taking jobs from our kids
Consuming our natural resources
Stinky armpits
increased sales in Bud light

Such great contributors to America

Barry, I've got to call you on your weather reporting brag. That report from the Messenger was from yesterday's update, not this morning. It was the same morning you made the prediction. Not much of a prediction when the flooding has already been reported by the Mess.

I used to work for TxDOT as a road kill technician and sign guy. north of Plano is Climax, Texas. Average length in time of an orgasm and length of time for a city limit sign are about the same there.

In fact Barry, this statement from the Messenger Update; "The flooding seemed especially bad in the Paradise and Bridgeport areas where numerous water rescues were reported where cars became flooded in high water, and the drivers often had to wait for rescue on the roof."
was published late Monday night as well as Tuesday morning. Not this morning. Weatherman you not be. Plagiarizing the Mess and attempting to get credit.

Climax, TX is about 30 miles southwest of Nacogdoches. That would be a long way from north of Plano.

I have maps, such as, for educating TxDOT employees who were never TxDOT employees, such as.

For many years it was hard for TxDOT to keep a city limits sign up in Cool, population one hundred and twenty three citizens.
The frequently stolen sign read: COOL - 123.
Now they have had a growth squirt and the signs stay up better.

No sarcasm. Barry repeatedly mocks Christianity, yet never seems to have a problem with Muslim terrorists.
