The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • Had my first full throttle rehab session yesterday and I'd like to say I slayed it by walking up stairs and lifting a 4 pound weight in exercise routines. But in all seriousness, my left leg which seemed to be going "dead" on me felts a heck of a lot better.
  • I even had a lady come in and give me a memory test. Trust me, I'm getting examined like I'm about to enter the NFL draft.
  • I mentioned that the most recent Texas Monthly article is dedicated to guns. One was written by a woman who was part of the mass shooting in Killeen in 1991. She normally carried a gun in her purse but had taken it out and kept it in her car because she feared arrest. Both of her parents were killed as they sat across the table from her. She went on to become a Texas legislator.
  • I don't understand anyone being excited about the Mavs making the  playoffs. (Yeah, that was a heck of a game but the Rockets could not have played any worse and still almost won - They'll probably win the next three). The best thing that could have  happened would have been to miss the playoffs and at least take a flyer in the lottery. And next year they won't be as good as they were this year which could best be described as mediocre.
  • It's New York election day and Trump will come within inches of guaranteeing his nomination. Incredible.
  • Lake Bridgeport is 2.79 feet over conservation level with a huge storm about to it the watershed this evening.
  • Texas fought the U.S. in the Supreme Court yesterday on immigration. Question: Why did we have to pay for AG Ken Paxton to go to D.C. and stay in a hotel when he didn't argue the case and simply watched?

There are still some drugs talking there Barry!! Mavs beat the Thunder, but you are correct that Mavs will lose next 3.

Mavs had no choice but to make playoffs. They don't own their draft pick because of the Rajon Rondo trade. Make playoffs and make a bit more money or sit at home and watch Boston make your draft pick.

Get well soon.

I read an article in the WSJ recently about the Olympic shooting team, and how no corporation or other group outside of the shooting/gun organizations will officially sponsor them for fear of anti-gun backlash. And this is the team that represents us, the US, to the world. Now, somebody might ask "Why would a company sponsor the shooting team if they're not involved in the gun industry?" Well, the USPS spent millions sponsoring old what's-his-name the cyclist, at that French race thingy and the post office doesn't deliver mail using bikes. McDonald's is an official Olympic sponsor, and that type food isn't good for any serious athlete in training, unless you count competitive eating as a sport.
The shooting team has won more Olympic summer gold than any team except swimming and track and field, and is sixth in total medals, ever. No other country has won half as many Olympic medals as the 107 produced by American pistol, rifle and shotgun shooters.

That's the bias against not only legal gun rights, but the best competitive shooting team in the world.

The Mavs don't have their first round pick this year. Please stop commenting about the Mavs. Your lack of knowledge about them and the NBA in general is staggering. Your overt jealousy of Mark Cuban must be shining through.

I hate to use the word, "normal, " so let's just say the RTG is not freaky looking.

Why do we have to pay millions for Moochelle Obammy's vacations and her dead beat mammy?

Let's have some accuracy in reporting on the Luby's story:
Hupp reached for her purse and realized that her gun was in the car. Her father ran at the gunman instead of just waiting to be shot down. She tried to get her mother to run with her through a window someone had broken with his elbow to escape. She turned around to see that her mother had not followed, but had been shot.
Her first instinct was to return fire, but was unable to. Her next instinct was to help her mother escape. Her father died trying to protect both of them and others.
It's a nice nutshell comment to say "Both of her parents were killed as they sat across the table from her", but that's not how it happened

Paxton- Legal counsel for one of 26 plaintiffs.

But was it a Holiday Inn Express for Paxton? Pretty ritzy.

Why such a beef with the Mavs? Last 16 years, no losing seasons. Three conference finals, two finals, one championship. They've won 50 playoff games in the last 16 years; made the playoffs 15 times, including this year; and have won as many playoff series as lost; and unless winning the whole thing...ALL playoff teams lose at least one series each year. How many seasons with 50 plus wins? 60 wins? 12 and 3; all of this in the past 16 years. That's a lot of action for a fan. Maybe I'm an idiot, but for a Mavericks fan might is it all that bad? Cowboys, Stars, Rangers have done more over this time? Any of those winning an average of 3 postseason games each year for almost a generation? Have many teams done more? Not a fan myself, but can't really figure out how this franchise sucks so bad as always referenced here. Unless being a winner means you suck.

At this point, Texas would pay good money to keep Paxton as far away from Austin as possible.

It's cause Barry hates Cuban. Mavs were DEAD until Cuban took over and transformed the team into winners.
