The Campaign For DA

6.13.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Chip Brown of Horns Digest, who correctly predicted Ken Starr's demise, reported this morning that the Baylor Board of Regents will vote this morning on the proposition of giving Art Briles only a one year suspension and then reinstating him. (Bleacher Report has confirmed the news.) Right or wrong, this has been a cluster. 
  • Donald Trump got a lot of attention because of his tweets yesterday but he started earlier in the weekend with: "Goofy Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, pretended to be a Native American in order to advance her career. Very racist!" That man is full throttle. 
  • I blew past the Borat movie over the weekend but happened to see the scene where he is in Manhatten. One image captures him standing in front of a "Trump University" sign.
  • Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick claims that his controversial tweet after the Orlando Murders was just a coincidence. Maybe. But after you go on anti-LGBT rants for months, you really don't get the benefit of the doubt. (Side note: He was "out of the country". Where, why, and are we paying for it?)
  • A video has surfaced of the moment the gunfire began.
  • Overshadowed in the mass shooting is the murder Friday night of Christina Grimmie - a former contestant on The Voice. She was shot a point blank range while signing autographs in . . .  Orlando.
  • There were 300 people  in the Orlando club at 2:00 a.m. closing time? That's one happening club.
  • There's an Uber type company advertising on The Ticket with a twist: They promise to get you home from the bar by sending two guys: One to get you home and one to drive your car home with you.
  • "Hundreds of baby lawyers who graduated from law school just last month will make $180,000 or more working at corporate law firms in Texas this next year — $9,000 more than the state pays Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan Hecht." Thoughts: (1) That $180K job looks nice, but it is the worst job in the world. You work long hours producing nothing of substance and charge people outrageous sums for your time. (2) But their pay is more justified than the work schedule of a Texas Supreme Court justice. (3) The $180K makes people want to go to law school only to find out that once they graduate it's hard to find a job.
  • Miranda vs. Arizona was decided 50 years ago today on a 5-4 vote. And no decision has been more misunderstood than Miranda by the public. No, the police do not have to read you your rights. They do have to read you your rights if you are in custody and want to interrogate you. (Here's a picture of Mr. Miranda who died in 1976 at age 34 after being stabbed in a bar.)
  • The annoying professional networking site LinkedIn which bombards you with emails is about to be bought by Microsoft for $26.2 billion. Dear Microsoft: You've lost your way and your mind.
  • I watched the first episode of the 30 for 30's O.J.: Made In America. Other than the first five minutes showing a parole hearing, I was underwhelmed. 
  • "BELLEVUE, OH - Three women are under arrest after they assaulted a McDonald's employee because she was working too slowly in serving them. In their booking photos, two of the women appear to be smiling after their arrests." Let's take a look . . . 
  • Did the cops at Love Field really need to shoot the guy who was armed at one point with rocks? Seems like a great place for a taser.

What do you mean right or wrong?

You need to look the females in the house right in the eyes and explain to them what's right or wrong.

...and you want to be my DA?

Someone please explain what this even means?

Your problem with Trump's statement is?????
Clinton is still a liar and you're ok with that????
Sometimes the truth hurts.

When will the fools realize just how stupid it is to threaten ANYONE pointing a gun at you, much less a cop? I really wonder what that idiot thought would happen.

The night club shooting was horrible. No one deserves that kind of terror. Having said that, my mother always told me nothing good ever happens after midnight. Guess she was right.

Why isn't Obama bombing the holy hell out of a known ISIS training camp? They took responsibility for this.

Reagan would have done that by now already.

A taser??? They shot him sever or eight times with a gun and he was still coming at them. Do you really think a taser would work?

As the father of a young woman, if Briles only gets a one year suspension, I will have lost all respect for Baylor. It's all right or wrong until it happens to your daughter.

Pretty plain. A Texas Supreme Court Justice puts in less than "Banker's hours" while the corporate lawyer works his ass off. You need anything else simple explained to ya?

I guess you think Orlando PD should have used less lethal rounds on the night club shooter too?

Im starting to think Trump is right. We really are way too PC in this country. We need to get tough with these folks. No more of these folks in America till we can sort this shit out and figure out what we need to do.

The irony in the Miranda case is that if they would have arrested Ezequiel Moreno for the murder of Ernesto Miranda, the police would have had to read Moreno his "Miranda" before an attempted interrogation.

On a side-note, in reference to your previous distain for Chris Kyle, the Jesse Ventura's judgment has been vacated by an appeals court.

Sometimes, you can't win for losing.

Stay Classy

By not being full throttle, McCain and Romney handed Obammy the presidency.

Shooting in Orlando? What difference does it make?!

Thanks NRA ?? - Again, does anyone believe these guns were purchased legally at Academy or Bass Pro shop? No, just the same Libtard way of thinking:

Blame the right, stand on the left and wait...then blame the right for doing nothing because you gave away there right to help you...Sheople

"Seems like a great place for a taser", split second decisions are made by reflex, muscle memory, or whatever you want to call it. Your brain does not respond with, which is better option A or B?

To the smiling girls in the picture you know what they say White trash don't know they are white trash and that's why I am scared to death!

Please Barry point out that not every lawyer fresh out of school makes $180,000. The number that do make that represent probably 1% of 1%. These associates are drawn from all law schools in the country and maybe even from other countries. I doubt that very many Texas law schools are getting a hard look with the Ivy League schools getting first draw. I would bet that the median salary for attorneys is not six figures, but student loans are.

I have it on good authority that Dan Patrick was in Cambodia, trying to buy sex with little boys. He doth protest too much.

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking Dan Patrick will be the President of Baylor someday.

He seems to fit the bill, unfortunately.

BU, Class of '79

I Agree it was very racist for Elisabeth warren to claim she was part Native American to enhance her career. Good observation Green. Now how about Obama claiming he was fron Kenya to get tax payer funded college tuition

Anonymous said...

Once again the anti American libs are out in force blaming anything and everything on this shooting except the crazy Islamist terrorist who did the shooting

wordkyle said...

I'm a little late to the game, but will reiterate the obvious.

The pool cue doesn't play the eight ball.
The spark plug doesn't drive the car.
The hammer doesn't build the house.
Blaming the tool is the practice of fools.

What is with all this talk about Muslim terrorists and queers, both Alf and Judy Jetson passed away...priorities folks, get them in line!

What about "Thanks, General Motors", or "Thanks, Miller Coors" for products that kill hundreds and thousands times more people than this idiot?

Anonymous said...

The love Field security need to get better training or bigger guns ! I think I counted nine shots !! YES SHOOT TO KILL > Better to kill now than for the taxpayer to pay a hospital bill.

Briles will be back. He should have never been suspended in the first place and has quite a nice wrongful termination claim against the spineless BU Regents if they don't reinstate him.

Oh, btw, Reagan was very much in favor of further gun control.

Wordy - No one claims that murders would be eliminated by restricting assault weapons but it would make these mass attacks less likely. Reducing crazy people of all races, nationalities and religions would also help. Right?

9:24 After terrorists bombed the American barracks in Lebanon that killed hundreds of US Marines, Reagan invaded Grenada to "rescue" a few American medical students. He did NOTHING to the terrorists. Check it out.
