The Campaign For DA

5.24.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • The number of elementary students enrolled at Northwest ISD? A shocking 10,136.
  • The 7th Grader In The House is on a week long field trip and was in Austin yesterday where she was introduced to some Texas lawmakers who fielded questions. I told her to ask, "Will you support Donald Trump? Yes or no, and then please explain why. Thank you."
  • Ranger Josh Hamilton is out for the year. The chances of him being missed? None.
  • I was beaten down by The Bachelorette last night starring JoJo from Argyle.
  • I don't necessarily have a problem with Dallas DA taking a leave of absence (again) to treat her mental health issues. I do have a problem if she is collecting her $210,000 annual salary while getting treatment.
  • There was a "medical emergency at The Crowing Rooster, no. 18, in Runaway Bay" this morning. What is that?
  • UT sports reporter Chip Brown reported this morning that Baylor regents will remove Kenneth Starr as the president of the university by the end of the month. If true, the man who started the impeachment process of Bill Clinton for allegations of sexual misconduct will lose his job for not investigating allegations of sexual misconduct. (And I wrote this on March 4th: " I've said it before: President Kenneth Starr should lose his job because he has lost control of that school.")
  • The Senior in the House is graduating. I've never been though this before but I'm beginning to think that Mrs. LL, who never cries, is about to do a whole lot of crying. 
  • The over/under for the Cowboys this year is 9.5. I need to break down hours and hours of game film before I can give you my Sports Genius prediction. I'm leaning to the Under.
  • I had a weird sensation last night as I scanned the Netflix library and scanned basically every channel on cable (I bet I have 20+ movie channels). I have also gained access to a ton of books and a bunch of old Texas Monthly's. It's information overload and I gave up. When your options are limited, it's much easier to find gold. 
  • I heard a political ad this morning for the Texas run-off for a House position by Justin Holland. Man, he hit all the hot buttons: He wants to secure the border, supports the NRA, cut taxes, cut regulations, "uphold traditional marriage", "a strong Christian", supports "stopping abortion", and supports" stopping Obamacare." That's a right wing Conservative Royal Flush right there.

Nothing about Hillary? Ever?
Glad to see good old biased BUBear is back.
You know you are voting for her. Don't you have to hold your nose just a little?

Your obsession with Ken Starr has led you to resort to flagrant untruths. 1) Starr was appointed by a panel of judges to investigate the Whitewater affair. 2) Clinton's AG Janet Reno approved all of Starr's investigations. 3) The impeachment of Bill Clinton was not because of "sexual misconduct," but because Clinton perjured himself by lying under oath. 4) Starr fulfilled the duties of his office as he was obligated to do. Reno had the power to remove him at any time if he was thought to overstep those duties.

Democrats have hated Starr ever since he shined the light on what a gigantic scumbag Bill Clinton is. Your overstatements of what Ken Starr "did" don't change the truth, that the Democrat icon was a habitual philanderer (possibly rapist) and a habitual liar. The episode also showed that the Clintons as a pair don't care who they destroy to protect themselves.

You should have seen me and my wife last week when our daughter graduated From Texas A&M. Lots of water works from both of us...

"Crowing Rooster" used to be named Harbor Inn.

Yea!!

A week long field trip? Seriously? That's some high tone Jr. High right there.

A quick check of the Google says The Crowing Rooster Inn is the new name for the motel at Runaway Bay.

Ken Starr should lose his job. Unfortunately, he'll probably collect a big fat severance package when it happens.

Good morning Barry. I am sure you got enough of this yesterday, but its great to have you back. Don't get me wrong, Mrs. LL did a nice job, but it lacked a little 'edge' and your writing voice. All that being said, glad you are back and I hope you are well.

Kenneth Starr was the man "who started the impeachment process of Bill Clinton?" Really? I thought it was the House of Representatives that did that? Silly me.

and . . . . . "for allegations of sexual misconduct"?? Hmmm . . . . I could have sworn (pun intended) that Bill Clinton was impeached for LYING TO CONGRESS. Silly me, again.

C'mon, counselor. Kind of misleading, don't you think? Your prejudices are showing. Oh, wait. You ARE a defense attorney, aren't you? Screw the facts - just keep throwing those little diversions out there. Sad part is, most people will think it must be true coming from you. (said tongue in cheek) smh

Seems like you would have a little more compassion for the Dallas DA after your bout with the vapors or whatever it was you claim to have had.

The Crowing Rooster is the Motel near the Marina by the Shell station. They mean the 18th room there.

Welcome back, Barry.

You're just a broken record...remind us again what you progressives believe in? That would be a good exercise for you. Seriously and while you're at it...test yourself.

Ya right

The Crowing Rooster, no. 18, in Runaway Bay" this morning. What is that?

It's the hotel behind the Shell Station. The former Harbor Inn

Barry, agree with you 100% regarding the Dallas DA drawing salary while under treatment in Houston for an open ended indeterminate length of time. The rest of us working schlubs fall under the FMLA (Family & Medical Leave Act rules. 12 weeks max each year. Unpaid leave. Not eligible until in job for 12 months & worked 1250 hours minimum. Being an elected official, she appears to have dodged all that (but her employees have to follow those rules) and still draws checks while not in office. I hope she gets the treatment she needs and stays there till it's done, but she needs to turn back those pay checks or resign. It is the right thing to do.

Texas Monthly's what?

Sometimes, private clubs have places to eat and drink. It is not unusual for those places to be known only by those people that go there.

A motel named Crowing Rooster implies to me that some Cock of the Walk may have had some kind of issue. Blue Pill overload?

Preach on 9:01, 9:25, and 9:30

Most liberals and progressives do not stop and consider the cost of the government paying for everything. They forget WE are the government. I wonder how many welfare recipients Barry and Mrs. LL plan to make room for in the new East Bay place?

Note to all Progressives...do you not get this? This is truth! Wake up!

Welcome back, Barry!

My only regret of your return, is that it opens the floodgates for all the rants by the morons who seem to think this blog is about them.
The vitriol they've been holding back during your recovery must have been choking them. Sad, that.

Thanks to Mrs. LL for keeping this thing afloat! (Maybe you should give her a section of her own, here.)

Open borders, transgender bathroom policy, gun bans, free abortion on demand, free college education, taking care of illegal aliens with more benefits while our veterans die in the hallway waiting for a doctor? Sounds like a winning strategy to me.

Read the texas monthly article on the tragic whimberly flood last year.

Glad you are back.

There is absolutely no reason to support Hillary Clinton, nor allow an impeached pervert back in the White House for us to support. I hope we have enough sense to at least give someone else a chance who has had some success at something in the past. That is probably too much to ask from this voting population.

Ken Starr held Monica Lewinsky in a hotel room for over 18 hours while he questioned and threatened her without access to an attorney. Sounds like he has not changed.

Hey moron, the blog is about us. Barry throws out some topics and we discuss them. If it weren't for the comments I wouldn't read this thing

I would cry too if my daughter went to and graduated from aTm. How's it feel knowing she's part of a cult? Could be worse, you could have sent her to Baylor.

This quote should be the progressive mantra and/or the new name of this blog....

"my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge"


Isaac Asimov

Does anything sum up the American landscape better than this quotation?

Upstairs said...

Ken Starr was hired to do two jobs: One, prosecute Bill Clinton. Two, be president of Baylor University. Neither of those jobs entailed doing anything to protect the women involved -- they didn't matter. What mattered in Job One was getting Bill Clinton and what mattered in Job Two was protecting Baylor.

When women complain about sexual abuse not being taken seriously this man is the poster child. The sexual abuse didn't matter to him at all.

Anonymous said...

Campus sexual assault is just a creation of the left, it doesn't exist. These girls are paid by powerful liberals to make these allegations.

Dear Ken Starr,
Looks like you blew it!
Love,

The Crowing Rooster is a cesspool of a whore, slut, drug, crappy thing that is anything but a hotel/motel. Runaway Bay needs either another tornado or large fire and wipe that hell hole of place off the slab.
