The Campaign For DA

6.23.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • A Tennessee guy is running for Congress under the campaign slogan, "Make America White Again".
  • The Chewbacca lady will throw out the first pitch at a Grand Prairie Airhogs game this weekend. At least she's down to a spare minor league baseball game. Her time in the spotlight is finally on its last legs.
  • The dad in Melissa who has been arrested in the death of his baby who was left in the hot car tried to save it by putting the child in the refrigerator. What a horrific experience. (The police charged him with Manslaughter which proves they have never even remotely looked up or understand the definition of "reckless" in the the Texas Penal Code.)
  • There was another child left in a car yesterday in the metroplex but the child survived. Cops called that just an "accident". 
  • The Grapevine Mills Mall will get a new anchor, Fieldhouse USA, which is a "106,000-square-foot facility [which includes] nine basketball and nine volleyball courts, offering year-round league play in team sports such as basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer. The company said the venue will also host performance training, all-sports camps, baseball/softball, birthday parties, boot camps, cheerleading, club volleyball, corporate events, dodgeball, lock-ins, skills training, taekwondo, and tumble." That concept sounds like it would work. But, if so, why there aren't more of them?
  • The word "taekwondo" has caused this image to be stuck in my head: 
  • The House Democrats staged a sit in on the House floor yesterday in response to the lack of gun control legislation. The Republican response was to shut off the CSPAN cameras which only led to more media coverage via Periscope. I think we have a shortage of competent PR advisers in this country. 
  • Johnny Football was the alleged victim of a hit and run in Dallas this week. Junior Miller of the Ticket pointed out this morning, "He's like a vampire. You only hear about what happens to him at night." 
  • I'm four episodes into Game of Thrones, and I might be hooked. It dawned on me that it has the feel and substance of the action scenes of the very underrated Sucker Punch film (it was big on swords and even had a fire breathing dragon). And I'm a fan of 300. And Gladiator. Oh, dear, I like gladiator movies
  • Anybody see a trend? (Source):

  • Sad bit of irony: The Argyle Fire Department chief had his house burn down this week.
  • The coast guard is looking for a missing family off the coast of Florida. They were in a 29 foot sailboat that "the family had lived on  . . . for about a year." I googled "29 foot sailboat". Those are big boats but I'm not sure I would want to live on one. And I dang sure wouldn't want to live on it with three other people. 
  • California cheerleader charged in homeless man's death
  • Yep, same girl.
  • Jim Schultz from the Dallas Observer yesterday: "I had dinner with an attorney who said he thought few people appreciate that the district attorney holds the most powerful elected office in the county. I do know, because I know that a reporter can spend months compiling irrefutable evidence of a person’s criminality, then ask the DA why he or she refuses to seek an indictment, only to be told honestly, 'Because I don’t feel like it.' The office of DA is one of those full-stop points in the local power structure. The person holding that office can say, 'I rule that your traffic accident was an indictable homicide.' Or not. And there you have it."
  • I mention the Rangers for the first time all season yesterday and then news comes that Derek Holland is placed on the DL and Colby Lewis will miss two months. The Liberally Lean curse continues.

On your Wednesday thoughts you said that Kirk should jump ship and leave Dallas. You sir just showed your true colors. Would you up and jump ship and leave Brock and go over to Dana??? You probably would you little weasel. You have to have loyalty and character.

Good day.

If Barry gets his wish, in two generations we will be Mexico. Mexico without any global stabilization.

Thousands of years of darkness is what fools like Barry want for humanity. Actually, they wish that we had never even existed.

Isn't it kind of hypocritical that the democrats wanted to lynch Ted Cruz for shutting down the government and now they are doing the same thing by throwing a tantrum like a little kid because they aren't getting their way? Did the Republicans do this when Obammycare was shoved down our throats without one Republican vote?

I imagine the dems' sit-in to be similar to a 3-4yo toddler's tantrum. You know when they just throw their butt down and think they can sit there and pout long enough to get what they want. Never mind, I forgot you haven't raised children... I'm confused about your stance regarding the DA. Are you upset about too many indictments or the lack of?

"The House Democrats staged a sit in" - And there's your best reason to vote Republican: the Democrat party as it exists today.

So you're upset that the police called the second hot car event an "accident" ?

There are VBall and BBall indoor courts all over the metroplex. Lots of warehouses where they have put down multiple courts. (Did your 2 girls only play softball or what? Where have you been?) ANYTHING with kids and Team/Club/Select/Travel ball is Big, Big business right now. Stayed at a Hotel last month in Frisco and at breakfast there were baseball, volleyball, soccer, basketball and cheer teams down there. But hey it's better than our kids being at home doing nothing or on the streets getting into trouble right.

There's something screwy about that Celina/Melissa teacher that dressed the kid up in longsleeved, hooded pajamas, left her in the hot car for a few hours, then tried to cool down the body in the refrigerator before calling the police/ambulance. I think the cops up there know that something's off, and that's why he was promptly arrested.

Agree with 9:08, there are tons of them. Google PSA. My son have always played select soccer and now youngest plays select basektball too in our spare time. All I could say was wow, had no idea there were so many teams and so many locations. Most in northern DFW.

More pics of the cheerleader/murderer. Tats, piercings -- that girl is more than a little WT.

8:58, Sitting in the House Chamber and trying to make the Republicans come in and talk about gun control isn't "shutting down the government". It's trying to get it started. I don't care how you feel about the underlying issue, your analogy is just inappropriate.

Barry, I 100% agree with you about Sucker Punch. It will be a cult classic.

I'm waiting for the vote to rename our state TEJAS. Might as well. Apparently everyone is suppose to be speaking Spanish anyway.

So now we have a classification of people that are labeled non hispanic whites? Is that kind of like when NBC labeled George Zimmerman and white hispanic?

Master Barry you should build a Fieldhouse USA type of facility in your beloved Wise County. It could feature kayaking, jogging and everybody gets a participation medal.

944 - Wouldn't things have started with the legislation that Democrats rejected?

That field house complex works believe me. I've said for years one needed to open up near the speedway it's a money maker

The pictures of the sit in on the house floor makes me think of a bunch of little kids that are mad because they did not get to do something.

I really should quit my job and try to become Speaker of the House. Because apparently you have the power to just decide to start your 4th of July vacation a week early. Hell, I'd only work 135 days a year already, so who would notice another 4-5 off??

Wow, so many uninformed redneck racists on this blog. And yes 8:58, Rs have done the same thing, "During the 2008 summer recess, House Republicans held a similar protest against Democrats’ refusal to vote on GOP energy bills they believed would lower skyrocketing gas prices." This isn't what Ted Cruz did, this is not shutting down the government, its going on recess. Get a clue 8:58!

Go read some history, brah. If you knew anything about America, you'd understand that this has happened many times - and ultimately, it all works out. The Irish and the Japanese are two notable examples, but there are other regional influxes of immigrants, as well. Long story short, don't panic homie, you will be okay.

The father who put his baby in the fridge, I believe that was an accident...charges probably made so they would be able to do a more thorough investigation. And, it has been told by medical personnel on a news show that if you encounter a baby/person in her condition the first thing to do is get ice placed under the arms, groin, hips and head to start the cool down, even before the paramedics arrive..so the father did the right thing by placing her in the fridge..only thing is she was probably already dead..he was just hope he could revive her. But most of us can't wrap our head around a father forgetting the baby and going in and taking a three hour nap before he wakes up. Something tells me he had a drug of some type for that sound of sleep.

The data obviously reads that we are becoming Mexico. We should begin storming the Red River any time now. We are the stupidest people on earth to give such a country away.

Sippy cups all around for the Dims. Maybe they should win some elections if they want control of congress or the Senate.

If you charge a parent with manslaughter for forgetting a child in a car, wouldn't "attempted manslaughter" be the charge for a parent who forgets a car but realizes and gets the child out in time? If not, why not?

Maybe one day you will evolve and vote for individuals and not a party, Wordkyle.

Nah. You won't.

Dead child in Melissa...

MAYBE, just maybe, the cops actually did look up the definition of "reckless" and realized that they would not be able to PROVE that he was aware that his conduct was but "consciously disregards" a substantial and unjustifiable risk that the circumstances exited or the result would occur.

Maybe, just maybe, he forgot the child in the car. If that's the case, he would have never had the conscious thought of "man it's hot, but I'll take a chance my child will survive the heat." That, would have been reckless.

Yet again counselor, you presume to know the fact and are constantly put in check by your own arrogance.

Perhaps, yet again, you allow those people to do their jobs and you stick to improving yours.

Stay Classy

The Fieldhouse concept already works. They are all over the Metroplex and booked solid. Some of them I have been in had 20 VB courts running at the same time.

Uh, I think somebody already said that in regard to the Democrats. Sorry but that snark is taken already.

Wow. There sure are a lot of us stupid rednecks on here. I'm glad smart people post stuff to let me know what to think.

I have two children, and god forbid I ever forget them in the car. That being said, I can, in some weird way, understand how it could happen. Maybe they are in the middle of a phone conversation, baby is asleep...walk in the house, arguing about custody, electric bills, sales call - whatever. Thirty minutes later - an "oh shit" moment occurs. Again, god forbid it ever happens, but I can empathize.

Now, if someone does this on purpose, they should suffer the same fate.
