The Campaign For DA

6.20.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • On Friday, there were were 123 more DPS Troopers in Texas. 
  • Liberally Lean curse: On Friday I said the Baylor Scandal had become a dumpster fire. On Friday, there was an actual dumpster fire in Southlake. 
  • Billy Bob from Varsity Blues died on Friday.  (Side note: The girl in the whipped cream scene from that movie is now 40 years old and still very hot.) 
  • We've got another just-six-months-in-jail sexual assault story. This time it comes from Alabama and involves a state trooper. 
  • "A 23-year-old Fort Worth man was found not guilty this week in the fatal shooting of an aspiring rapper in the parking lot of an Arlington sports bar two years ago." Two things: (1) Both defense lawyers are former prosecutors and one of the them left after the new administration took over, (2) This case involving a shooting outside of a club with no scientific evidence. The not guilty verdict demonstrates the problem that exists with all the  Waco Twin Peaks bikers prosecution.
  • I went to Benihana yesterday. It's like Panda Express on acid.
  • Hasbro has created a "Chewbacca Mom" action figure. Will we ever get rid of her?
  • Today is the first day of Summer and a full moon.  I don't know the significance of that but it is pretty rare. I tried to look up dates for the last time and the next time it will happen, but I came across a story that said it depends on what time zone you are in. That gave me Tired Head so I abandoned the search. 
  • It took a game seven with historical consequences, but I finally watched 1/2 of one game of an NBA game last night. CBS News said President Obama stayed 10 minutes longer on Air Force One after landing to watch the end of the game.
  • Three years ago Skip Bayless tweeted: "Johnny Football will one day be bigger in Cleveland than his buddy LeBron ever was."
  • Some guy in the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em tournament a few years back received an autographed Lebron James jersey that a buddy gave to me to give away as a prize. I think it was a Cleveland jersey. 
  • “Hey, you want to hit the papers tomorrow? Let’s get that horse. I’ll ride that horse. The problem is, even if I make it, they’ll say I fell off the horse and it was terrible.” - Donald Trump at Gilley's in Dallas last week when he confused the mechanical bull with a mechanical horse.
  • "These 50 Sodomites [in Orlando] were all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the earth and the earth is a little bit better place now, and I’ll even take it a little further I heard on the news today that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and I will pray that God will finish the job that that man started" - Fort Worth Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church. (The place looks like it might have a salad bar.)

  • He also has hot religious opinions regarding today's churches: "[Our] church is old-fashioned, has traditional music, and is King James Bible only! The new evangelical movement in America has been a complete disaster. The worldly, rock and roll, contemporary-style churches are not getting the job done when it comes to preaching the Gospel to every creature, teaching Bible doctrine, and preaching hard against sin. We do not pattern our church after these trendy social clubs. Stedfast Baptist Church stands for the old paths and zero compromise preaching." He should trademark "Preaching Hard". That's pretty catchy.
  • A thought: If you asked a male under 25 what King James refers to do you think they would refer to a version of the Bible or Lebron?
  • Fox 4's Jenny Anchondo got married over the weekend. Any "Hey, Nows" in this pic?
  • Top 10 in alcohol sales in DFW in April: (1) Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center $1.87 million. (2) American Airlines Center $1.31 million, (3) Toyota Stadium $1.14 million, (4)  Happiest Hour $1.07 million, (5) Hilton Anatole Hotel $1.06 million, (6) Globe Life Park $969,162, (7) Omni Dallas Hotel $967,354, (8) AT&T Stadium $837,251, (9) Varsity Tavern $727,472. (Source)  Happiest Hour is near Uptown. Varsity Tavern is in Fort Worth.
  • I pulled the following data for March in Decatur. I guess Bono's in not in the city limits:

Why do you post links to Google search results instead of just posting a link to the story/picture/etc.??

Trump doesn't know the difference between a bull and a horse. Makes you wonder about those Trump steaks.

wordkyle said...

Trump may have been a little off on the specifics, but he was correct on his main point. He says enough dumb stuff to be named Biden; but the media misreporting what he says is even more egregious.

Yes, the Steadfast Baptist Church Pastor is ignorant. Ignorant people are everywhere.
Including so many Muslim Imam's that never make it to your blog or any other liberal media outlet.
But then again, they only preach the rape and murder of Christians and Jews.

Doubt there are 123 more troopers, really. Not even close. How many have retired or moved on into other jobs since the last graduating class?

Hey, I noticed that you didn't fail to mention Trump's miss-speak at Gilley's but completely missed this:

The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday.

Wow! That sounds a little like the old Soviet Union or China or N. Korea! There is no way Trump could do worse.

These happy Cleveland people are the same ones that were setting James' photos and jerseys on fire a few years ago, taking knives and guns to his image and killing him, and making death threats against him and his family. "He better not ever show his face here again or we'll kill that EM EFFIN traitor", and so forth. Now, they would kill one another to catch James' sweaty headband if he threw it into the crowd.

Stedfast Baptist Church. (The place looks like it might have a salad bar.)

There's never been a salad bar in Sansom Park as far as I know. After seeing the photo you posted I immediately thought it looked like some log cabin buildings on Jacksboro Hwy. I never saw those buildings with the red roofs however. Guess what? I'm right and you're wrong. Again.

933 - After reading your post I had to check for myself. No way that could be true. But it is. The Obama administration is committing a North Korea, Soviet Union-style of rewriting history. They edited out French president Hollande's reference to "Islamist terrorism." They edited out a reporter's catching the White House in a lie.

These are just the historical revisions that they got caught committing.
(Incidentally, if you question these links, I used them because I couldn't find any mention of the stories in the mainstream Liberal media. They apply the Liberally Lean technique of ignoring stories they don't like. But at least BG's honest about his bias.)

9:33, it sounds like they don't want to legitimise the ramblings of a madman and embolden a terrorist organization that had nothing to do with the mass murder of innocent Americans.

Come on Barry...how about a Sharen Wilson update??? Is the Tarrant DA office a "dumpster fire" yet?

1037 - Said like a true Obama self-Decepticon. Your "had nothing to do" claim flies in the face of the very evidence the Obama administration redacted.

Anonymous said...

10:37 - Liberals only like the truth that suits them. It is not for you liberal morons to decide for the rest of us what truth should be reported. If he said it, let it be known and we the citizens of this country can decide for ourselves if it is the ramblings of a mad man or if the terrorist organization is responsible.

Anonymous said...

10:37 - I'm not sure if you have noticed but fine folks that are part of ISIS are pretty much all mad men. Beheading or burning alive, innocent men because of their religious beliefs makes them insane in my book.
Mateen is just the latest representative to make the news.

Hey! This is the original TommyBoy and I say it's perfectly fine to make fun of any dang thing you want.

We have a poser at LL (9:19) and, like the guy who used to pose as Wordkyle, he/she/it has made me famous. I am TommyBoy, at your cervix.

9:39 very much agree! Casa Torres has the worst margaritas. Except they should use lime juice instead of a mix. Nothing worse than a sweet slurpy kids drink the color of antifreeze. A true margarita only has 3 ingredients; tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur.

Happy first day of summer, everybody!!! We'll be able to go jacket-off and jump in the pool until October!!!!

Mateen was not with ISIS. He was, however, a sick man. It's already been reported he claimed allegiance to ISIS. Not publishing his rantings isn't hiding anything. It's preventing the ramblings of a mentally ill man from giving a terrorist organization credit for an attack they had nothing to do with. He also claimed to have car bombs and suicide vests. That wasn't true, either. He was clearly mentally ill.

Maybe if you folks weren't so embedded in your political beliefs you could see the difference. You'd rather embolden a terrorist group to further your politics than protect your country.

Anonymous said...

1:37 So you side with ISIS then, nice to know!

It is important to show the all the information so we can embolden them. We need them to be able to recruit all the crazies so we will know exactly who we are fighting and we can eliminate them. This brings them out of the shadows!

I'm confused. Did Baylor move to Southlake? Sorry, this blog is just too fast paced for me.

You know technically speaking there probably was a salad bar in Sansom Park at the Williams Ranch House steakhouse. We were too poor to eat at steakhouses or anywhere else for that matter.

137,

How the hell is government censoring in any way protecting the country. Even one deluded liberal wingbat reason?

Here is a really good way to protect the country. Outlaw "gun free zones", or as I call them, free kill zones.

The one thing all of these mass killings have in common is they are all kill zones. Nobody ever seems to bring that up.

It appears only the law abiding citizens pay attention to that rule. The bad guys, who have nefarious intentions, do not. Imagine that.

wordkyle said...

137 - Once again, you try the "had nothing to do with" excuse for the Obama administration removing information they don't like -- when what the Obama administration removed nullifies your point. History and facts once again prove your side is wrong. Are you some sort of always-losing attorney or something?

What I believe is that the Obama administration and its clinging dingleberries don't want to "embolden" Americans who may be right about Islamic terrorism. So they simply remove information that corroborates their opponents' arguments. (See "lost e-mails," vis-a-vis Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton).

UPDATE:
Under pressure from Republican leaders, the Justice Department on Monday afternoon reversed itself and released a full, uncensored transcript of the Orlando terrorist's 911 call on the night of the massacre, calling the morning’s furor over omissions in the document “an unnecessary distraction.”

So it WAS political after all? How can that be, 10:37?? Looks like 9:33 was right!
You should have waited a while to comment.

Congratulations Republicans. You chose politics over national security. Now the rantings of a madman are free publicity for a terrorist organization.
