The Campaign For DA

6.08.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Well, we officially have a female on the presidential ballot this Fall.
  • Go back in time less than 100 years: Many states didn't even allow women to vote. It was only in 1920 that the U.S. Constitution was finally amended and ratified to force all states to get with the program. 1920 wasn't that long ago.
  • If you drive over the "old dam" at Lake Bridgeport, you'll see about 15 small whirlpool-like movements in the water. What are they?
  • The Messenger lists 60 new indictments. My quick count revealed 39 of them being for drugs.
  • Ever think softball is boring? In the college world series last night, Auburn came back from a 7-0 deficit to tie it, robbed OU of a game winning home run in one of the most fantastic catches you'll ever see (photos below), and then won it with a grand slam walk off home run in extra innings. A winner take all game is tonight.
  • "Video captured a mother wrestling her daughter from the arms of a would-be kidnapper." Ok, that's weird. It was in the middle of a store. 
  • This seems to be the most volatile time for Trump. Up until now, he's been able to say things that would destroy any conventional candidate. But now he's finally catching some very strong blow back with his "Mexican judge" comments. First crack in the armor or is this a rallying point? (Side note: Angering Hispanics is no way to win an election.)
  • I'm not sure I have ever talked to a single person who watches Game of Thrones.
  • The NBA first game of the season was on October 27, 2015. The season is still going on. For comparison, the Cowboys were only six games into their season on October 27th - a season that ended over five months ago.
  • Conversation in the courthouse yesterday: Doesn't being a long haul trucker sound like a pretty interesting job? You don't have to jack with people, could listen to audiobooks or anything in the world you find interesting, and you get to see the country. 
  • “When Sting died, Sting, according to them, had no will and was worth 300 million dollars or 280 million dollars or something, and had over 1,000 songs that he had not released that he had written. He had all this music to be released!” - New York talk show host Mike Francesa yesterday.

What a sad day for our country!

The comments on the kidnapping tweet are exactly what you would expect. I think the Fox News Twitter account and this blog must have a lot of crossover in their readership.

If the President's wife is the "First Lady" when what will we call Bill Clinton if Hillary wins? "First Man" or is that sexist?

The "old dam" on Lake Bridgeport? Where is the "new dam" located?
You need to get out more. Call me, we can explore & talk over "old times" (insert emoji of your choice)....

It is indeed sad. Just another KITN (kick in the n___s) for this country.

Amazing that this country is unable to entice quality people to be part of public service anymore.

I wasn't too impressed with the RTGs today, until I saw the scary clownface at the bottom of the post. Apologies to them.

Long haul trucking:
You do have to jack with people, driving all those other vehicles and acting like idiots. And you have to deal with it, and drive - all day long! Then you get to do it again tomorrow...and the day after...and the day after that. Thanks, but no

Have you asked every single person you've ever talked to if they watch GoT? Otherwise, I can confirm you're not sure

Aerators for the water intakes for various entities that get their fresh water from the lake. Located in generally the deepest area of the lake.

the mini whirlpool thing sounds interesting - I hope you report back on that one.

yea, Trump is nut, but you gotta enjoy the larger victory for the left. That Judge belongs to a patently racist organization whose stated intent is to take back the American Southwest and return it to it's Mexican glory, or something like that....

Do they have glory in mexico?? I digress

My point was Trump is the only one beging questioned in this. You won BG. Take a victory lap. But as I said after the gay marriage rulings. Enjoy the world you created because one day you'll be on the wrong side of history because the next group of mentally diseased degerates will want their "equal rights" (pedophiles are on deck by the way - with the Trannies in the batters box)

Technically speaking, you don't officially have a female on the ballot this fall. There is this thing called a nominating convention that needs to happen first

I'm looking forward to having Hillary Clinton as our president and watching her continue the great legacy of Obama.

9:07, the new dam is about a half mile North of the old dam. You should get out more.

I hope those two on the left back can get back in the water. There dying.

I am bothered that you did not tell the messenger they had to use the picture of you with the eagle when they ran the story. You just lost my vote.

Putin will kick Clinton's butt. I believe that the hyena is the only mammal that has a female as head of the pack. Nobody likes hyenas. Ask Darwin what this means.

half a mile north of the old dam is the middle of the lake

Is the argument that "He didn't get a fair trial due to an all white jury?, racist?
It is used a lot to get a retrial or verdict thrown out........many times by liberals.

9:55, sorry. I thought that was just a spillway. My bad.

RTG on the left looks a little out of place, I would still do it though. Fat Girls Rule!!!

Long haul truckers have to deal with a whole lot of people, same as the rest of us. A conversation that obviously did not include a long haul trucker.

I need to read a little more slowly/carefuly in the future - I just wasted 3 minutes looking for a scary clown face in the RTG pic.

then I reread TF's comment and hurr durr,

Jill Stein appeared on the ballot in 2012 in most states as the nominee of the Green party.

I feel as bad about Sting as I did when I first heard Roger Moore had passed.

Yes, the area near the damn is part of an aeration system - like a big fish tank.

Unless she gets indicted between now and the convention.

I'm not sure Hillary "is" a woman.

Ok folks,
There is only one dam on Lake Bridgeport. There is however a spillway to the north od the dam.
The "whirlpools" are actually air bubbles. There are aerators on the bottom to keep the water oxygenated. They pump the air down thru lines that come from the bank just to the north of the dam. If you follow the lines you'll see the compressor building. Keeps it from getting to smelly or funky so it doesn't have to be treated as much for drinking water.

Don't worry, Game of Thrones is just for the Lord of the Rings crowd now many of them are adults. Nerd TV but with sex.

Actually, there are 2 dams. The old dam is an earthen dam and has a now unused spillway on the south end.

The new dam, which is a wall to wall spillway with multiple gates is still a dam by definition, meaning if it was not there, the water level in the lake would go down below the conservation level.

I'm tired of all this dam Bridgeport lake talk!

Well I'll be dammed.

Around here, you're dammed if you do and dammed if you don't.

Barry, I like your RTG lineup today. Something for everyone. Now that is diversity I can get behind.

It was only 55 years ago that no Wise County bank would loan money to a woman on her signature alone. Her husband or a male relative had to co-sign the note. Ask some of the old timers about that. And that was the general practice in Texas at the time.
