The Campaign For DA

6.22.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • If I'm Dirk, I jump at the chance to go to Golden State. Why stick around with Dallas? He doesn't owe them. They owe him.
  • As with all recent presidential elections, it comes down to Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida. Trump needs all three. Clinton can win the presidency with just Florida. Fox News reported she has a massive lead there of 47-39 percent. (Hispanics and Latinos make up almost 1 in every 4 Floridians.)
  • On the rumored three person short list for Hillary's VP is Texas' Julian Castro.  Let me call your attention to a random thought on Liberally Lean from April 1, 2015: "Hillary should select one of the Texas Castro brothers as her vice president nominee. She won't win Texas even if she did, but it could awaken the Hispanic electorate in general. And once they are awakened, it's game over. Not just this election but for years to come." #MeEqualsPoliticalGenius
  • I'm a huge fan of Texas Monthly's Skip Hollandsworth and enjoyed an excerpt of his new book about an Austin serial killer in the 1880s. He will talk about the book today at an odd place: Highland Park United Methodist Church. 
  • TCU might just win the baseball National Championship. 
  • I saw that our County Judge is reading Empire of the Summer Moon. A fantastic book with a history lesson relevant to Wise County.
  • Austin's transportation department went undercover to catch underground ride-sharing drivers they say violate city code. Cars were towed and fines were issued. I may have to change my saying from "Too many cops" to "Too many cops and wannabe cops."
  • Robert Jeffress, my nemesis from FBC of Dallas, is all over Fox News these days and is constantly promoting his appearances on Twitter. He did so this morning so I did a quick look at a few of his followers who had immediately "liked" his tweet. One was from Heather Jones whose profile reads, "I believe Jesus has saved my soul and Donald J Trump will save America."
  • I always make fun of WBAP's Hal Jay and The Ticket poked him with a stick this morning as he was confused about the Orlando Massacre thinking that the shooter had contracted AIDS from a Latino. Notable quotes: "He was a gay Muslim with AIDS" and "He's just mad that a Latino gave him AIDS."
  • I laughed at the comment yesterday taking me to task for liking the Ticket because it's "nothing but a bunch of old guys over 40." (Paraphrasing.)  The Ticket has a character named "Dylan the Attitudinal Teen" who would say something like that. 
  • We had a horrible case up in Melissa where a baby was left in a hot car and died. Note to cops: You didn't have to immediately arrest the guy. Let him grieve for 48 hours, get a warrant, call him, and let him turn himself in. It's a procedure that happens all the time. 
  • I didn't watch the USMNT soccer game last night against Argentina, and I'm glad I didn't. All that time and the U.S. didn't have one single shot on goal.
  • I think you should at least have to show your G.E.D. before using the word "Libtard".
  • So how many same sex marriage licenses has Wise County issued? It's coming up on the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision. 
  • “It’s rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes . . . .” - Mark Cuban on Donald Trump.
  • Knee-jerk reaction: This doesn't look like a kid who would drown . . .

Pretty cocky with your election pronouncements, counselor. This morning Bloomberg reports that nearly half of Sanders supporters won't support Hillary. Twenty-two percent will vote for Trump. That's Democrats. The distrust and dislike for HRC is pretty intense. Sure, this isn't a game changer, but it might be indicative of electoral forces no one's seeing.

Then of course there's your keeping-my-fingers-crossed blindness regarding Hillary's e-mail catastrophe and the selling of her influence while secretary of state. While I don't believe there's any way the Obama administration will ever charge her, regardless of evidence, this may finally be the season in which Clinton's chickens come home to roost.

Isn't that just a kinder, gentler version of LBJ's " I'll have them n*****s voting Democratic for the next two hundred years", updated for the demographic? Not exactly a singular moment of political genius, counselor.

Can someone explain why a self-professed "man of God" would become so embroiled in politics as to be a regular contributor on a news station? I saw a clip of Jeffress on Hannity last night and he was so virulently angry about HRC that Hannity openly laughed at him.

Maybe I missed it when Jesus said, "Go ye therefore into all the land, acquiring political power, so that you might impose your version of what you think I said on others through governmental authority, thus establishing a kingdom for me here on earth." Can anyone point that out to me?

on the 0500 CBS news on AM 1080, one of the leads was the story of a homosexual latino male who reported to authorities that the killer was looking for revenge after finding out that another guy he had "gotten" with was HIV positive. CBS also reported that multiple men and women were coming forward with sexual ties to the perp.

I think Dirk would jump if he didn't have a ring, he's got a ring. He can stay here and be king

you talk of "awakening" the hispanic electorate like it's a good thing.

that GED line, is that your way of saying even a drop out can see the folly of liberal policy positions? Please expand on that

lastly, are you a fan of Mark Cuban now?

Barry's really lashing out at everyone today. Someone must have burned the little feller very badly yesterday. Maybe I shouldn't criticize little Barry since he was stricken with the vapors and such.

Hey 9:27,

Sound bites and short clips don't work when studying the Bible. To understand what one reads, one must read. Answer your own questions via your own research, not what you imagine the Bible to say. If you think a sentence or two will enlighten you and reveal God's plan, maybe you're expecting too much.

Oh, and Jesus never said what you attributed to Him. I'm sure you don't care, but there are severe admonitions against changing the Word of God. Ask for forgiveness and it will be granted.

A "man of God" is still just a man and many are called to serve in various ways. You know this already.

In regards to the child dying in a car..

Wouldn't it be better for you to worry about doing your job correctly, instead of pretending to know how to do everyone else's job better than they can?

Stay Classy.

If a guy left a baby in a car and then the baby died, yes, arrest him immediately and jail him. That's murder and he should spend the rest of his life in jail. I have 2 kids and would never leave them in a hot car. That's reprehensible. If you are a loving, caring parent, you don't leave your kids in a hot car. He either didn't care, was on drugs or was drunk. No parent who can call themselves a parent should do that.

While showing your prejudice towards the word "Libtard",
as usual you offer nothing suggestive as to how how to refer to the:
gender confused, criminal embracing, race baiting, politically intolerant, violence monger Hiltlery following mental case Democrats...

However, I have G.E.D. in hand for your inspection.
Of course, it makes your law degree look like a counterfeit Elvis Presley stamp made by the lighthouse for the blind.

Albeit, I digress...

Somebody desperately needs to invent a sarcasm font. Even then, you would probably still have to point out to the clueless that you're using it.

Jjjjjulian Castrrrrro. (rolling tongue sounds)

Makes Bernie Sanders brand of socialism look like Robert Mugabe's ANC- a pale comparison.
Both will achieve the desired effect. The USA taken to its (in your mind and other self loathers) just rewards.
I weep for my children's' future --and yours, because you are too stupid to realize what these decisions mean. Rome met its demise the same way--and you think what has and is happening somehow will bring about some kind of utopian nirvana whereby all people will have a happy and comfortable life, just because pols like Hillary and Castro says it should be that way. Mexico won't have shit on us in fifty years. Start learning how to roll those rrr's buddy.

Whatever it is that you're trying to insinuate about the girl that drowned in Southlake is bordering on offensive. A family lost their child in a tragic accident. Accidents happen. There's not always a conspiracy. If you think something untoward happened, come out and say it. Pussyfooting around it like you're doing makes you look like a heartless bastard.

Only a person with no personal posterity to suffer would refer to the debacle of Hillary and years of democrats as a "game."

If you were Dirk, you would be three times taller than you are now... Could Hillary choosing Castro be considered pandering?... Hillary claims to be pro-woman and pro-gay, but her campaign is being financed by countries that gaydom and female extra-marital affairs are punishable by death

Has anyone ever missed the point on here more than 10:43 did?

I feel better knowing that Hillary is using a Mexican to get their votes instead of who would best serve our country in case of her death. What experience does he bring? It kind of reminds me of what kind of experience did Obammy bring? How did that work out for us.

Listen genius:
I was born in South America, became a citizen
My wife's great grandfather has roots in South Texas
An illegal alien who's fresh off the river

We are all three "Hispanic", what the hell makes people think were are all three "the same" i.e. Hispanic, who would have the same morals, political leanings etc.

I don't get free cheese, never was granted amnesty, I support the wall and I absolutely wish all illegal aliens would be deported.

Just to give you an example: go to FBI.GOV page, and tell me how many illegal aliens are under the most wanted for violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery) those are facts which cannot be argued.

I agree with Triple Fake: A sarcasm font would be nice but probably ineffective.

The inability to detect sarcasm has been linked to frontotemporal dementia. At least one person here might want to take note of that.

(Hint: I'm not being sarcastic.)

While 1 in 4 people in Florida may be Hispanic, it's oversimplifying and overstating the influence of that population on an election there. "1 in 4" isn't necessarily the ratio when it comes to being old enough to vote or registered to vote, and it doesn't account for differences in eligible voter participation rates, which are extremely high for older, retired white folks there, for example. Hispanic voters in Florida vote at about half the rate of other groups. So 1 in 4 quickly becomes about 1 in 16 in an actual voting influence when you account for all the other realities.

News for you, many very fit people and swimmers drown. Cramps, unknown medical conditions, accidentally taking a huge gulp of water and panicking; it only takes a moment. Might want to let that one go instead of raising suspicions.

BG,

Just checking on your rules...I do not have a GED, but I do have an MBA.

Does that allow for the use of the term "libtard". Because it is really informative and I do enjoy using it.
