The Campaign For DA

5.25.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • I tuned into a Trump speech in New Mexico last night when he went into a rant about Syrian refugees coming to that state. (That's really a problem?) A lady behind him began yelling, with a very angry face, "Go back! Go back!" She was wearing a "Christians for Trump" t-shirt.
  • And there was a heck of a protest after the speech which turned a little violent. Several Mexican flags could be seen amongst the protesters.
  • My office Internet slowed to a crawl but a call to Century Link, the much maligned company, had it fixed in slightly over 24 hours. 
  • I noticed the obituary of Jeremiah Martinez, 35, in the Messenger. That was a familiar name up at the courthouse.  He was a troubled soul. 
  • The Colonial Pro-Am is today and you know who is playing?: Bill Murray. I'd pay more to see that than the actual golf tournament this weekend. 
  • This morning's local news: A huge alligator was captured near a Dallas school. And I do mean huge. Pic.
  • This morning's local news #2. A boat crushed a vehicle on a highway in Kaufman County. Pic
  • Does Baylor not has a PR department? After the report by Chip Brown that Ken Starr would be removed as president, Baylor only issued a cryptic press release saying that Starr "is" the president. Talk about the irony of the phrase, "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."  Did they mean he is currently the president or he is currently, and will remain, president. 
  • There's a Letter to the Editor in the Messenger by Bridgeport's Rusty White this week taking the War on Drugs in Wise County to task. He points out that in the most recent grand jury meeting that almost 50 percent of the 57 indictments were for drug related.  He refers to it as "people ranching" for profit and job security. 
  • "Now, suddenly, to give this kind of power to a criminal prosecutor, who is virtually uncontrollable, is dangerous . . . . " - Justice Stephen Breyer one month ago during oral arguments in McDonnell vs. United States.
  • Someone called the office yesterday wanting to know who to vote for in two run-off races for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. All four names belonged to people who were not incumbents, and I had never heard of any of them. Me! And I follow that court as closely as anyone. (One of them won last night who has the name of Scott Walker. That proves it is nice to have the same name as a very conservative Republican Governor from Wisconsin.)
  • Universities can't afford to pay student athletes? UCLA just signed a $280 million deal with Armor All. Edit: Before I get kicked too hard, that was Under Armor. (I cleaned my car last weekend).

A HUGE alligator is a lot more than seven feet long. A seven foot alligator is barely a "keeper".

One side in America's political debate uses violence to try to silence those with whom they disagree. There's your Fascism in America, folks. Don't like what someone says? Kill 'em.

What ever Chip Brown reports of any other school but Texas....every school should do the opposite. He is a Texas shill and meddles in other schools business to benefit the Texas T shirt fandom..... He knows how to make money. Salacious opinions and pro-Texas.

"UCLA just signed a $280 million deal with Armor All." Umm, Unless they are planning on shining up the seats at the Rose Bowl... the deal was with Under Armor.

How many deaths were recorded at the rally?

Armor All cleans tires and other auto details.. UCLA signed deal with Under Armour :) Here to help as you get back into the swing, Barry. Glad to see you at the helm again!

Barry refers to an anti Trump riot as a "little violent." On the other hand, he is beside himself that a trump supporter would say "go back" with an angry face.

Need some clarification here. Are you talking about:

Religious nuts bombing abortion clinics?
Gun nuts shooting up schools?
Conservative anti-government groups that bomb federal buildings?
Conservative anti-government groups that threaten war against local law enforcement and then the Feds when they try to kick hem off of land they're squatting on illegally, callin for help fight I the Gov't with guns?
Anti-government conservatives who wage an armed standoff at government wildlife refuges?


No, of course not. You're offended by a couple of punches thrown by Democrats.

More hypocrisy. Someday even you'll see how dishonest you are.

Rage thinks that anti-government groups are conservative? Are they fiscal and cultural conservatives?

wordkyle said...

And so the ignorantly foolish defend the violently foolish. Violence is the last resort when your ideas fail you, and the Liberal mobs are proving that all over again.

That's all beside the fact that these toddlers use their tantrums to try to silence anyone who points out their foolishness. Totalitarian, fascist, Orwellian -- whatever you want to call it, it shows the philosophy that guides them.

Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key.

Universities can't afford to pay student athletes?

They already do. Your Baylor University has a COA for the 9mo school year of $58K. That's $232 grand just for the school part of school. Add in the physical training, the dieticians, the athletic gear given, that's gonna kick in a sizeable bit of extra $$$. And most importantly, besides the degree, kick in some on the job training for a potential windfall if you make it in the NFL.

Yeah, they get paid. How much more do you want them to get?

One of those t-shirts behind Trump looks like it says "Christians for RUM". I'll drink to that!
And waving the flag of a foreign nation at a political rally in the US seems counterproductive. Allegiance much?

article from the Albuquerque paper quotes Bill Clinton, claiming Hillary is the only candidate that "would unify, rather than divide, the nation."
Really?! Regardless of who is POTUS, at least 40% of the nation will be diametrically opposed to their policies.
Lots of undecideds are on the horns of a dilemma trying to decide between these two

Rage -
You have begun the decline towards grouchy old curmudgeon.
Don't be alarmed you represent perhaps 50% here.

I thought Wordy wasn't ever going to respond to Rage?

Well, since he really didn't respond I guess he still hasn't, but it's fun watching Rage run Wordys nose in his own BS.

Anonymous said...

Many of you folks should realize Rage is usually way more accurate and full disclosure than WK.

WK will slam anyone other than a GOP person. If they are GOP, very, very seldom will WK knock them.

Rage swings both ways....so to speak.

How many deaths were there at the New Mexico rally, Wordy?

Syrian refugees. (That's a problem?) No problem at all if you want them to rape your wife and children. Just ask the ladies in Germany if they go out alone at night.

Sam Brows said...

Strangely absent from all of the Baylor criticism is any reference to one Ian McCaw. The athletic director for Baylor. Who by the way is a Canadian...where's THAT wall for Pete's sake? Anyway, the guy's been on the job in Waco since what, 2003? And he's allowed Art Briles to create a festering wound of a football program to essentially do whatever it wants. Shouldn't the fickle finger of fate be pointing directly at this Canadian on some level?

So, when confronted of several examples of right-wing violence, you got nothin', Wordkyle? I'm glad BG's return has brought you out of your hole. It's fun to watch you get slapped around.

Totally agree that no Mexican flag should ever be waved in the US. I mean, they lost the Mexican American War, after all. If you lose a war, you don't get to wave your flag around.
