The Campaign For DA

4.21.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • The Lake Bridgeport level is 4.88 above conservation level and I bet it will crest above 5' today with the runoff. Do they have the flood gates wide open? I bet not or Eagle Mountain Lake would flood.
  • Nevesta Jones of Bridgeport and Berry White of Runaway Bay were interviewed on Fox 4 last night (via tape) about the flooding.
  • You think MADD isn't in it for the money? They get paid $800,000 for a two year contract from "many" states to monitor and report how DWI cases are handled. In Texas, there's an official publication by the State every year which already does it 
  • The Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday whether a person arrested for DWI who refuses to give blood or breath can be charged with a crime for the refusal regardless of whether the person is eventually acquitted of DWI. In Texas, a refusal normally causes a driver's license suspension up front but in several states the refusal is an actual crime. Those were the cases before the Court. The defense argued, correctly, that some states were making it a crime to assert your constitutional right not to have your breath or blood searched. If the cop wants your blood, get a warrant. 
  • The trial next week of the assassination of a Cartel lawyer in the high tone Southlake Town Square sounds like it will be fascinating. 
  • The killing of the fitness instructor in Midlothian by a person dressed as a swat team member is equally fascinating.  That was a designated hit, right? 
  • I missed a Supreme Court case from March where, amazingly, prosecutors are still hiding evidence which cause cases to be reversed. The rule is simple: “[T]he suppression by  the  prosecution  of  evidence  favorable  to  an  accused  upon  request  violates  due  process  where  the  evidence  is material  either  to  guilt  or  to  punishment,  irrespective  of  the  good  faith  or  bad  faith  of  the  prosecution.”  And that has been the law since 1963. (And the rule was later modified that the evidence had to be disclosed even if the defense lawyer didn't request it.)
  • My health has improved dramatically but I've still got a ways to go until I get a full release. But this is the best I have felt in over a year or more. And I'll never again mock someone who is hospitalized due to stress/exhaustion. 
  • The Texas Hammer is now running commercials with his lawyer son who also yells at the camera. I cringe for my profession every time. 
  • Man, Amazon hires a lot of people in North Fort Worth and the explosion of businesses and restaurants in the area of 287 and 35 and North Tarrant Parkway has been nothing short of mind blowing.

MADD people are all nuts. Who cares if a drunk driver does it over and over and over again until he or she kills a bunch of people? Right? Perhaps DIFODDAKP (Drunks in Favor of driving drunk and killing people) should be funded instead?

Barry, in regards to the Supreme Court disclosure case: Shenanigans in Louisiana courts? Who would have thought it? I am SHOCKED!

Any bets on whether Miss Kardashian's bikini has ever even been wet? I don't think she likes to frolic in the surf. It's all about just being seen.

Well, yo have to pay more for a full release. If your medical expenses are too high, go on down to one of those Chinese run-n-tug joints. I hear they're cheap.

Jobless claims at lowest level in 42 years. Thanks Obama!

Didja see where Harriet Tubman has been chosen for the new version of the twenty dollar bill? I'm surprised they didn't go with the current trend and pick transgendered Laverne Cox from Orange is the New Black. I think that would be "NOT legal tender in North Carolina!" Hey-o!

So a national organization gets a measly contract for $800K from the government and they're in it for the money? The NATIONAL DIRECTOR for MADD makes a lousy $75,000 per year. WTF do you think they do with the money, Barry?

Amazon hires a lot of people, but the attrition rate is pretty high. It's hard work and you are on your feet the whole day going up and down stairs.

Mr legal knowledge - I ran across a post yesterday about the ACLU's gender neutral bathroom fight and had some questions for you. Target announced their bathrooms are now gender neutral and "a federal appeals court ruled on Monday that schools don't have the right to segregate bathrooms based on sex." Is that true? So far, the ACLU has been taking their fight to cities and states, but wouldn't discrimination-based matters be a federal matter?

After you're health scare...share with us the process that certifies that you will be able to drive again. Other drivers on the road would like to know.

Damn son you never were the sharpest tool in the shed but now you are about as sharp as a bag of marbles.

Drugs/Alcohol more likely.

Missy Bevers, the lady murdered in Midlothian, is from Jacksboro. Her family is still there. Our little hometown is devastated.

The killing of the fitness instructor in Midlothian -

Husband hired the hit - in my opinion.

Watch and see.

Why do you support drunk driving?

If it was a targeted hit, why beat her to death with a hammer or whatever tool the suspect was carrying around (not official, but there have been plenty of hints that was what happened)? Why would the suspect do it inside of a building that likely had video surveillance at 4am? Why not do it as she's walking to or from her car where there likely wouldn't be cameras or the footage would be less reliable? Why go through the theater of vandalizing the church for 30 minutes while waiting on the victim to arrive? As salacious as everyone wants this to be, I think she just had the bad luck of walking in on a nut who was robbing and vandalizing a church.

If he stopped mocking people he would have nothing to post on his blog. His entire universe is hate filled with mocking others.

Please people..I'm getting old.

Let's get this $h*t over with now.
Go Ahead and put Oprah and Obama on our money and make it
a federal law that all transgender and cross dresser's have to escort
my 3 year old granddaughter into the public restrooms...
But, since you're forcing your way on me, I'll be forcing a bullet directly at your forehead. "Go Ahead make my day".

Just consider this you tree hugging, liberal movie star supporting faggots that wonder why Trump is so popular in this country....Really?

It's a revolving door at Amazon. They'll hire 20 on a Monday and 30 will never come back by Friday. People just don't want to work that hard.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Better a gun toting republican like Harriet than a genocidal maniacal democrat like Jackson.
