The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Cue the music: "Look who's back. Back again."  Yes, your long blog nightmare is over. I'm back. (But, seriously thanks to Mrs. LL for holding down the fort and acknowledging that, "Writing that blog every day is hard!" 
  • Yes, I'm aware of all of the allegations against Baylor. But I'm not sure why ESPN has put Waco in its cross-hairs.
  • Full Idiocracy: Did you see Donald Trump listed the goofy tweeting Texas Supreme Court judge as one of his 10 likely nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court?
  • I watched the Twin Peaks of Waco documentary on CNN. Not a whole lot of new information but it did cement my belief that this will be a cluster before it is all said and done. (Did you know that not a single one of the 170+ defendants has gone to trial and none are accused of murder.)
  • Bryan Cranston in the HBO movie where he stars as LBJ is fantastic. 
  • Mrs. LL told me she had a blow out and it blew off the back rear panel. I thought she was just talking about a little piece of plastic that comes down behind the back tires of the Gangsta Mobile. Nope, it blew off the entire back panel!
  • Fox News poll of a sample of registered Hispanic voters: For Hillary - 62%. For Trump - 23%.
  • That being said, it wouldn't surprise me if Trump won the Presidency. Nothing has made sense up so far and now he gets to run with the cloak of legitimacy: He is the Republican nominee.
  • First Baptist of Dallas pastor, Robert Jeffers, is at it again. He says that Transgender-friendly businesses are a greater threat than ISIS.
  • Thanks for all the cards and letters while I was away. I greatly appreciate it.
  • Mark Cuban says he would consider being the VP for either Trump or Hillary. Huh?
  • The widow of The American Sniper is now doing commercials for a DFW car dealership. Sheesh.
  • The Dallas Morning News is basically going behind a paywall again. If I understand it correctly, you get to read only three articles a month for free.
  • This is not the way you are supposed to play basketball.

You honestly have to ask why Baylor is under scrutiny from ESPN? A Baptist University sweeps sexual assaults under the rug to have a good football team. Wow....I think you need some more medical testing.
But, glad you are back and well (well is a relative term since liberalism is a mental disorder).

Welcome Back! So glad you're feeling better! Thanks again Mrs. LL. It was nice to have a woman's perspective (maybe she can fill in every now and again?)

"Nothing has made sense up so far" - Exactly. How could any Democrat with a single working brain cell support a candidate who at best negligently handed over government info to both foreign agencies and Romanian hackers? And who - as it's becoming extremely more evident - sold her influence as secretary of state and potential future president?

If ESPN doesn't put them in the cross hairs who will? It sure isn't the Waco newspapers or the Waco police who have now been caught pulling computer records when Baylor football players were in trouble. Briles needs to go. That program is rotten from the inside out. I hope ESPN continues to expose them.

Baylor should put out an ad that says...

"Parents...only 25% of your daughters will be sexually assaulted while at Baylor"

Baptist University that allows its student body to be sexually assaulted by members of the football team for the greater good of sports glory (but spends Millions on a new stadium). University President persecuted POTUS over a consensual sexual encounter but turns a blind eye to rapes committed by his students. Football coach in his desire to win games ignores multiple rapes committed by his players, continues to recruit thugs and allow thug culture to thrive within his team. Local media does next to absolutely no reporting at all on the scandal to prevent the University's stature from becoming tainted.

Yep, absolutely no idea at all why ESPN is picking on poor little ole Baylor. Just a bunch of outside agitators.

Skippy, no comment on Zimmerman getting a quarter million for the gun that killed Obammy's son?

Plenty of us agree with Robert Jeffries, son. Look into the creation and financing of ISIS for the truth. Our deteriorating morality combined with our collapsing economy creates an atmosphere of sin and evil that is far more dangerous than some bogus military organization created by Saudi Arabia and the CIA.
Get a clue there, lawyer-man.

To the extent you mean Waco separately from Baylor, Waco PD has helped cover up past allegations. They all deserve to be in the cross hairs.

My morning routine is once again whole.

Welcome back BG.

ESPN is losing sports fans since they've moved into the realm of "cultural relevancy/social justice warrior-ing

Baylor being a religous institution, is their warm up for the ultimate target Notre Dame.

Mark Cuban likes being talked about and I think he looks at trump as the Pinnacle of success. He's just hedging his bets when he mentions Clinton, hopefully the FBI will win against the justice department and she'll go down like Monica. Lesser people have done more jail time over less.

Trump will make America Great again, or at least he'll try. Our current and soon to be former CIC/HNIC is doing his damndest to tear it down. I'm just worried that Trump may be a day late and a dollar short.

and I like that the first bullet point is a Slim Shady reference, that's USDA Prime Humor right there

Glad you're back and most importantly, doing well! Mrs. LL should do a spotlight every so often. I enjoyed her perspective. I'd say leave the dogs out, but you do that, too! I don't care about the hot girls or guys...scroll right on past them, just like on FB!

Good on ya Ms. LL for a job well done.
And to Barry, welcome back and glad to see you in fine form once again.

The ESPN position isn't difficult to fathom...it is a liberally leaning organization chalked full of elitist, east coast educated frat boys who don't bat an eye over having their on air personalities talk ad nauseam about gender neutral bathrooms and dispersions on the Washington Post article that confirmed 95% of Native Americans polled don't have a problem with the name Washington Redskins. Of course they are going to take every opportunity to tee off on a school like Baylor, where predominantly white kids of means attend a school that furthers a world view that is different from their own. The fact that the head coach has been accused of lying about what his program knew and didn't by a program other than one in his own conference only adds to the juice.

Welcome back! So glad you are better! We were all really worried about you. Despite your being completely obnoxious toward Law Enforcement, sincerely happy about your recovery. Take care of yourself and remember what is TRULY important in life!

Mrs. L.L. did a great job. She also supplied the women readers with what I have begged you for... Equal time. Not all men, but cute animals as well. You should learn from the balance. You do have women readers, as you know, and part of the resentment of you is rooted in your one sided half-naked females!

Anyway, so glad you were able to come back. May God bless you and protect you from further issues. Better be on your best behavior! LOL!

119 - LOL Your article cites the skewed "official" unemployment rate, and like the Prevaricator in Chief himself (winner of the 2013 "Lie of the Year") blithely ignores the millions of unemployed Americans not counted. Also, since the article touts the "good" economy, it's worth pointing out that Obama will be the first president ever to not see a single year of at least 3% growth in the GDP.

1227 - Address your complaints to the FBI, who are currently investigating the e-mail shenanigans of the presumptive Democrat perp, er, nominee. ("Investigating," according to the director of the FBI - not conducting a "security review" as HRC claimed.)

The salacious media agenda currently is now sexual assault. If you dig at EVERY major school in the nation, you are going to find similarities situations.... unfortunately for Baylor, they had a high profile case put them on the radar two years ago and the media pile on has snow balled.

The media likes to play religious "rules keeper" to christian schools. So... the media put's extra scrutiny on them to make them play to their own christian rules even though societies rules are the same.

And the engines are revved high...."let's see what we can find"

Baylor has something they have to get better at. The media mantra is to fire everyone.....they don't care about what else good the current administration has done... one fault and that over powers all good.

Baylor has to get better.... but it's not going to happen like the media or it's football opponents thinks it should.

You say so sport. Bush can't exactly take credit for 3% growth when he tanked it by 20%, but whatever. I'll take the current rate of stable growth over recessions presided over by Republicans, any day.

But you keep searching for things to complain about. Hope that record high stock market, insurance coverage rates so high and improving that healthcare is replacing energy as a leading market driver, and finally no hot wars is treating you right.

501,

You have no concept of economics, right? Do you want to site anything for your 20% drop in...?...by a Republican? Anything? No?

OK, so if you like just off the wall stats, over 70% of the country believes our economic situation is going in the wrong direction. The median family income has dropped by over $4000 since Obama has been in office.

Obamacare has not had a month of over 50% popularity since it was implemented. Insurance does not mean health care. Many if not most families cannot afford health care, because of extremely high deductibles.

The stock market is high because it is the only place to invest. This is because of fake zero interest rates for the ENTIRE Obama administration. This is because of the extraordinarily weak Obama economy. It is NOT because of increasing corporate earnings.

Please stop drinking the Koolaid. It will give you diabetes, and increase health care costs.

While you were out. The countdown continues. Just over 8 months until the worst PresiDunce in American history is gone. Can we get back to a President who doesn't lie every time he opens his mouth. How about one who will report the actual unemployment numbers or one who can actually say Islamic terrorist. How about a President who isn't a closet tranny homo. The countdown continues...

"Insurance coverage" - Not improved healthcare. When the Democrat congress and administration made it a crime not to have insurance, that sort of rammed it down everyone's throat. Poor people still can't afford to see a doctor because of high deductibles and lack of doctor availability, plus they're on the hook for an insurance premium they didn't have before.

Add in that the Obama administration is violating the law by reimbursing insurance companies too much; and insurance companies are finding they can't make a profit under the plan and dropping out of participation; and medical costs are rising at an increasing rate; plus the aforementioned lying that Democrats have done to protect themselves politically.

Tell the millions of extra unemployed about that high stock market. Tell the families of the American soldiers recently killed in Iraq and Afghanistan there's no "hot" wars. Your ignorance/foolishness is what I referred to in my initial post.

If a bakery owned by very religious people wants the freedom to NOT make a wedding cake for a gay couple due to their religious beliefs, I am all for it. But only if they also require proof of virginity when a straight bride to be is ordering a cake. And only if they refuse to sell cookies to anyone that has ever taken the Lord's name in vain. And so forth. In other words, I think a bakery or any other business should have the right to refuse service to sinners, as long as they refuse service to all sinners, meaning everyone on the planet.

wordkyle said...

729- As always for your type of argument, you simplify the matter so that you can understand it yourself. In your world view, is it possible that gay customers frequent said bakery all the time and that the baker, knowing full well they're gay, serves them without incident? However, the baker chooses -- by refusing a wedding cake request -- not to help those people celebrate the lifestyle of which the baker disapproves. And being consistent, mightn't that baker also refuse to supply a "Losing My Virginity" cake to someone? One can love (and provide goods and services to) the sinner and still refuse to help celebrate the sin.

904 - Oh yeah, I know such people can't be dissuaded from their foolishness. However, they provide me with the opportunity to make my case to other readers who might still have an open mind. We have to counteract their lies every chance we get.
