The Campaign For DA

4.04.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • I know someone who will be pleased with this pic: Bacon.
  • Dear Sweet The Ticket: Two straight segments on hockey on Friday during Bob and Dan? That has to be paid for and mandated by management. And an absolute way to kill your station. "Cumulus - The Power of Radio."
  • I had a refrigerator delivered and they took out the old and put in the new in about five minutes. They charged me $15 to take away the old one. Guys, I would have paid $150. Or more. 
  • I could stare at Lake Bridgeport forever
  • So what is up with that new "Majestic" sign on the Wise County square?
  • I've got into a habit of taking The Family Pups to work on Friday and it makes the office incredibly happy. 
  • A local attorney, who refers to himself as "The Decatur Hammer" (comedy), reminded me of an event in my life  almost 20 years ago. I was leaving Colonial Country Club during the tournament with two buddies in the car. My phone rang and my VERY high tone girlfriend chewed me out for some reason. I then hung up and began talking about how much I really despised her. After five minutes one of my buddies looked down at my phone and points. I had not hung up. The phone was still on. Oh, my! I picked it up and meekly, praying that she had hung up, and said, "Honey? Baby?" I then hear, "UH HUH!" Man, I paid for that. 
  • If I lose as running as an Independent, I might search for something else -- in two years. Right out of House of Cards.
  • This is Opening Day and probably the only day I will care about baseball. 
  • It begins: "Charges dismissed against dozens of Waco bikers, lawyer says."  The DA implies that he is simply going to refine the charges but I bet this is the beginning of the end. You can "amend" an indictment without dismissing it. Or maybe he isn't smart enough to know that. This will be a disaster. 
  • Baylor has announced a home and home with BYU a few years out. I told Mrs. LL, "Darlin' we are going to Utah!"
  • My goal in life is to live it in incognito. I went to Lowe's this weekend and a sweet clerk looked at me and said, "Oh, you are back!" And I had a cap and glasses on. 
  • Early last Friday morning Cumulus ran three ads in 20 minutes on The Ticket to convince us that radio is thriving and perfect for advertising. That means they couldn't find anyone to buy those spots. 
  • I winked at someone on Friday. I never wink.
  • Trump will not rule out running as a third party candidate. Game. Changer.
  • Mrs. LL went out in the kayak this weekend . . . and then dropped her phone in the lake. 
  • There is no way Amtrak has lost over a billion dollars for five straight years.  Those numbers cannot be right.
  • Over 100,000? Idiocracy . . .

As to the "Majestic" movie marquee look on the square. I've heard that the owner of that building put that up just to give the square a retro/old style look. My mother confirmed that there used to be two theaters on that side of the square--the Ritz in the McMurray-Gettys Building, and the Majestic where the sign and marquee has been installed recently. The Plaza Theater where Woodruff's Law Office now stands came later. Kudos to the owner for researching history!

Welcome to Runaway Bay!! I know what you mean about staring at the lake.

Have you considered you're personal liability if Bacon has a coronary episode today?
What was the name of the Decatur theatre back in the day? I know the one in Bowie was the "Majestic"

Dear Sweet Liberally Lean:
you do realize that the Ticket is a sports talk station, and the NHL has a team located here, right? And BaD Radio is the only time slot that talks up hockey at all? The Stars are at the top of the standings nearing the end of the season, baseball is just starting today, and basketball has been talked to death by everyone else.
Your only interest in sports seems to be centered on college activities, yet you constantly make Sports Genius predictions about the local pro teams - usually about how they will collapse. Somebody is talking about a good local pro team heading into the playoffs, and you just want them to stop. ??

Hey Skippy, Hillary lost 6 billion dollars at the State Dept. in four years and no one says a word about it. If she had been the CEO of a company and lost 6 billion she would have been tarred and feathered.

What is so shocking about a US Gov. partnered business losing TRAINLOADS of money?

Last year, United States Postal Service lost $5.1 BILLION. Which is only a drop in the bucket considering USPS has lost $46 BILLION since 2007.

What is so shocking about these numbers is that MORE people are demanding the US Government run MORE businesses. You think healthcare/health insurance is expensive now just give the US Gov. a few more years to really bugger 6% of the US economy.

Has anyone but the DA seen the actual ballistics tests on the folks shot in the Waco melee? Seems that would be some mighty interesting info for the defense lawyers.

Let me get this straight. LL wants to run for office and stay incognito?
I love Lake Bridgeport; the North end.

Triple Fake, here's a HSO for ya. Less than 1% of P1's care about hockey. It's got to be a ratings killer for the Little Ticket. Personally, when The Stars come on, I change the channel.

10:04, how did Hillary lose money at the State Dept? Is it supposed to turn a profit?

Anonymous said...

10:56, The State Dept. doesn't turn a profit but they have to account for the money that they spend that is allotted to them in their budget.

Anonymous said...

TIL the US State Dept (and maybe government in general?) is a for-profit enterprise.

It still impresses me that I can pay 49 cents for a stamp, put it on a letter, and in two days it will reach its destination halfway across the country.

If you lose? Are you kidding me? With your "liberal" attitude on life and especially law enforcement, Sir, you don't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning anything! Not in Wise County! Not running as anything! Move on back to the "City" where you and Mrs. LL belong! Y'all are giving Bridgeport Lake a bad name! (In my hateful humble opinion only!)

Junior talks about Tour de France when it comes around. How many people care about that, even then?
Norm talks about horse racing when there's a major event. Who wants to hear about that?
Corby talks tennis.
Bob and Dan also talk EPL soccer.
Those are all niche sports that get some sort of coverage.
They went on and on yesterday about WrestleMania, and rasslin' isn't a sport at all. Like they said, it's soap opera for guys

It's a sports talk station. The Stars are one of the four major sports franchises in this area, and they're going into the playoffs with more wins than any other team in the league. Just suffer through a relevant discussion for fifteen minutes, or go get your hair done

Idiocracy is not 100,000 people wanting to go watch a fake wrestling show and all the trimmings. Idiocracy is when social workers, public officials and others are arrested and jailed en masse because they "were not able to prevent" some person from killing another. Meanwhile, the ACTUAL killer is of course not responsible at all...instead is a victim of all those people who did not stick their nose in far enough to prevent a bad situation. It's plain wrong, it seems, to fault a killer for killing. In Idiocracy, it is always someone else's fault.

When the innocent Waco bikers convene again bearing all their weapons to settle things for good (perfectly normal to bring, apparently, a Looney Tunes stash of weapons under your clothing into a restaurant...doesn't mean your are conspiring or anything)and a few "civilians" are shot to death in the crossfire; please make sure you attend the funeral and tell the kids why their mommy or daddy are in a box in the ground forever. Because, little Johnny, the people that shot your mommy are good people that we would not want to be troubled by a conspiracy charge.

Concealed carry is legal in Texas. If the Waco DA and police department can get away with murder and abuse of authority, then we're all in jeopardy. Barry Green is right on this one.

1:35 PM is not a native from the lake and quite possibly not even from Wise County.
First: The way the lake is named. Anyone there would know it is just that, The Lake -- Lake Bridgeport in formal writing -- certainly not ever, ever Bridgeport Lake.
Second: The writing is WAY too well done to be considered a native's work. All of these point to a city person: correct quotation marks, use of capitalization and comma rules, and understanding of parentheses.
Third: Everyone knows that ANYONE can win in Wise County! Barrister...it is even possible for you. Do not be disheartened. There are a LOT of liberals around here. (God forbid, but there are!)
