The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Johnny Depp can do a really good Trump impersonation. And that's why he's your RTG of the day.
  • The Ticket's Corby Davidson got smacked in the forehead last night during a broadcast. Honestly, I'm shocked that doesn't happen more often. I've listened to those broadcasts. 
  • I can't wait for football to no longer be relevant. Two players were sent to the hospital, one vis helicopter, after a head to head collision
  • Baylor and Waco has tried to keep the campus' bad side quiet, but, "Outside the Lines has obtained documents that detail largely unknown allegations of sexual assault, domestic violence and other acts of violence involving several Baylor football players." Why is it that Outside the Lines is the one to go after this story? 
  • I now am scouting locations for a new LL mansion on the cliffs of East Bay. 
  • UNT applied for a liqour license. I have a feeling that is going to be a bad idea.
  • Death in media: Morley Safer, CNN correspondent dies at 84. I still have the 60 minutes episode that aired on 5/15/16 about his life story on the dvr to watch.
  • Carpal Tunnel is a real thing. I've had surgery to correct that very painful problem and will go for round two this summer. A nameless person commented and calling it fake. No way they actually believe that, right?
  • The Senior in the House has a Senior Luncheon, two Senior Dinners and Senior Sunday at church this weekend. The 7th Grader in the House is leaving Monday for a five day school trip touring Texas. Another weekend without sleeping in. I'm not sure I'll get to even sneak a nap in. #GraduatingProblems Summer can't get here quick enough. 
  • The Kids in the House and most of their friends call Barry, Bubear.

I see Haney stepped down as President of the board in Decatur ISD. He got his wish of the indoor facility .

Did the carpal tunnel surgery in 2009. BEST. DECISION. EVER. Sorry I put it off so long. Simple recovery. Only a 1/4 inch scar. VERY REAL thing, especially when you work on a computer all day long.

When you recruit ghetto thugs and gangstas solely for their ability to play "fooball" (and basketball, as well), you get their behavior. What a surprise! That's why I long ago lost interest in Division I NCAA football and basketball, and the NFL and NBA.

Major universities protecting their athletic programs, particularly football, are nothing new. Poor Baylor has really been snake-bitten the last few decades. The murdered basketball player by a teammate, the subsequent Dave Bliss coverup, the questionable student courses transferred in, and now the massive rape train wreck. Somebody has to answer for the most recent screwups and it is either President Ken Starr or Coach Art Briles (or both). Baylor will have to sacrifice someone to at least create the image of change, even if they really don't alter their thinking & approach behind the scenes.

Thank God there are no Hillary impressions.....who could stand more of her?

I read where wanking causes carpal tunnel syndrome, along with other things like mini strokes..how's BG?

I bet today's RTG could do a better Hilary impersonation. On second thought, he might not be quite manly enough.......

Demise of relevancy of football - You'll be waiting a long while.

The NFL's net worth of all franchises is now $63 BILLION. (with a B).

11 NCAAFB programs had annual profits above the $40 Million mark.
30 NCAAFB programs all were above the $20 Million annual PROFIT mark.

Football is a big beast. Far and away the money king of sports. It will continue to change and evolve. But it won't become irrelevant in our lifetimes.

How do two football players "accidentally" bump heads during a drill in which they are supposed to hit each other? That's like someone accidentally drinking 10 beers and causing an "accident". It's not an accident. It's on purpose. You don't "accidentally" drink and drive, you don't "accidentally" have 5 kids, and football players don't "accidentally" get hurt.

Too bad drinking and driving isn't as concerning as football injuries. I wonder, if 200 people died from playing football each and every day like they do from being mutilated by drunks, how long would it take for football to be banned?

Care to retract the false comments from previous blogging? Of course not...we instead just push along lies.

Morley Safer, CNN correspondent? Umm, no... I think maybe you got smacked in the head instead of Corby. Although Corby always sounds like he's been smacked in the head. You can take the Corby out of Okie, but you can't take the Okie out of Corby.

Mr. Mike Honcho - $60 of the 63 Billion with a "B" represent the franchise value of your Dallas Cowboys!

Looks like Ken Starr sucks at investigating and being a leader. Raypelor should get the Death Penalty.

The Ticket's Country Club Corby got smacked in the forehead last night during a broadcast.


Where's Greggo? That's what people really want to know. Someone smacking Country Club Corby on his Frankenstein forehead isn't interesting to most, I reckon.

I would have thought the franchise value of your Dallas Cowboys would have been less than 60 dollars.

I used to think carpel tunnel syndrome was just a fancy name for malingering. Then I met I man who owned and worked his dairy with the help of his wife. He developed carpel tunnel and not only couldn't work as before but had to hire someone to help his wife. No workers' compensation or paid time off for him. He had the surgery and went back to work, minus several thousands of dollars.

Johnny Depp is an amazingly gifted and talented actor! Perhaps a wee bit on the eccentric side, but that makes him all the more intriguing! Of all his characters, Captain Jack Sparrow is my favorite!

Carpal tunnel is so awful. When I was 16 I had surgery to fix it, and when I was 23, I had a newborn that I literally would nearly drop when I tried to pick him up because the demon had returned to the same place and attached itself to all the nerves and tendons in my hand. I immediately had a second surgery to fix it. They got that bad boy that time and it has stayed gone all these many years. Ignore anyone who says it is not real. They never had to deal with it!

Children are the biggest blessing you will ever be given. It includes years and years of sleep loss. It has many disadvantages, and it requires total loss of selfishness. After years of this, they finally move away, marry and begin a life of their own. The sleepless nights improve at that point. After a little while of an empty nest, you realize you miss what drove you crazy! The reward, Grandchildren!

I wonder if the FBI is spending more money to investigate the criminal activites of Hillary's email server which we all know will never lead to an indictment, than how much money Kenneth Starr spent to investigate the mortgage scheme of Whitewater.

Carpool Tunnel syndrome is very real! I used to take a ride share to work and every time we went through a tunnel I found myself in pain. I was able to use this syndrome to become permanently disabled so I could scam the government, insurance companies and never work again!!

Don't forget the athletic director.

Snakebit? Do the athletic programs have to bring the worst thugs?

Instead of posting a vague comment, why don't you be more specific on what you perceive as false comments.

3:53, If that really happened, then things have certainly changed at good 'ol DISD since back in the 70's when I can't remember a coach that didn't cuss us....

I had Carpal Tunnel surgery a few years ago. It was practically painless. I can't even see that little scar now. Took just a short time to do it also. I went to Dr. Hilliard in Denton and I so like him. Have been to him for several hand problems. I wish you great success with the next surgery.

I had carpel tunnel, and was going to get the surgery. Extremely painful, to where I could not type or do any intricate work. My son who is in the medical field gave me a link to stretches and exercises to fix it.

So I did them for a couple months, several times per day, and the pain disappeared. None, nada, nothing. Amazing.

Now I do them a couple times per week, and have no more issues.

I will try to post the links to the exercise videos in the morning. If it works for you, let everyone know.
