The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • These ladies (below, not above) are probably 30 feet from each other during this split screen broadcast, right? Oh, and who wore it better?
  • Katy Perry performed at the DNC last night. Donald Trump had some advice to her a few years back:
  • Funny:
  • Hillary's best line came when she paraphrased Jackie Kennedy: "War might be started not so much by big men as by the little ones . . . moved more by fear and pride."
  • We get the Jerry Jones opening-of-camp-press-conference today.  Sure Thing = Confusing Statements Coming.
  • Random sight this morning around the courthouse square: A guy smoking a cigarette while barefoot and while wearing pajama bottoms and no shirt. (Note to self: New "casual Friday" outfit for me?)
  • Every time Fox News has Charles Krauthammer on as a guest, I think he might die before the segment is over.
  • I drove into downtown Fort Worth yesterday. That I-35 construction is the ultimate beating. 
  • "AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas attorney general has filed suit against Austin, accusing the state capital of violating 'open carry' rules by banning guns inside city hall." And that crazy Paxton did it within five days of a certain 50 year anniversary.
  • The only GOP nominee that Hillary may be able to beat is the one they served up: Trump. 
  • Yesterday's Update can be interpreted in a couple of ways: " Bridgeport Band Boosters will host a hot dog dinner for current Mighty Marching Maroon students 5:30-7 p.m. Friday at the Pavilion in Harwood Park. Although not supervised by Bridgeport Booster Club, students have also been invited to swim at the Bridgeport City pool for free." It reads like, "Hey, kids. We just run this private group but why don't ya'll run over there and just swim in that public pool without paying. And, by the way, you're on your own."

Maybe barefoot, pajama clad, smoking guy was a guest at the little inn on the square?

If you managed not to get caught behind the house taking up all of 287 on your way back from Ft Worth yesterday--you were lucky.

I got a question for the masses why are all the local fire departments asking for drink donations don't they get a monthly check from the county plus all the fundraisers they do during the year? Also boyd gets a county check plus money from the esd so why do they need donations? I happy to donate to some of the smaller depts but places like boyd with that big fancy station and bport that also gets city money cmon man! And yes before anyone says to go join and see if done my years on the local dept!

Hey, can the Constitutional scholar from yesterday come back and tell us again how if a right isn't enumerated in the Constitution, it doesn't exist? Can't wait to learn more!

Oh my God....Hillary plagiarized Jackie K......that will be all over the liberal news. Ha!

The newscaster on the left is at Victory Park, the one on the right is in the newsroom. A little bit more than 30 feet.

It's good to know that no one in the media accused Hitlary of plagiarism for quoting Jackie.

902 - I gather you're talking about me. You misrepresented my thought, though. (You must be a lawyer, a very unsuccessful one.) Go back and re-read what I said, maybe you really will learn something. Maybe enough to present my point correctly. Basically, my point was that just calling something a right doesn't make it one. If I say I have a right to take your car, does that make it so? If not, why not?

Health care is not a right, it's a privilege in affluent societies. The level of health care depends on the level of affluence. That's not elitist, it's reality. Rich people in America get better medical treatment than middle class Americans. An MRI machine doesn't work in a village where there's no electricity. You want cheaper health care? Roll back medical treatments to what they were in 1970, when we were all less affluent.

(Incidentally, I once heard a discussion about inmates at Leavenworth prison, the worst of the worst criminals. Their philosophy is that if you can't prevent them from taking your stuff -- "protect your campfire" -- then you had no right to keep it. How's that for a definition of "rights?")

902,

Go to your local library, and inquire about where you can go get your GED. I believe toward the end of the course, they teach a good bit about civics.

Hillary would have started a war with Bosnia when she landed at the airport under sniper fire, good thing Brian Williams had her back

All DT has to do to win the Presidency is to lay out the facts for everything that HRC has said and has done that show just the opposite is true of what she and the DNC say. If he will just concentrate on that, 80% of the time, it's a landslide.
Over the last 3 nights with BC, BO, and HRC, the lies are innumerable! Liberals will lie to your face knowing that you know they are lying!! Incredible.

Jackie Kennedy only had expertise in fashion and interior decorating. You'll forgive me if I don't consider her a reliable source on politics.

They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

Why wouldn't Jason Stratham be looking at their butts?

To the simpletons here, it's not plagiarism when properly attributed.

Actually, I wasn't. I would never confuse you with a scholar.

And, of course, it's not all about you, dipstick.

I was in that mess, complete BS to be allowed to move a house on that highway! I think it was one from the ridiculous "reality" shows based in the Rhome area!

Finally RTG's that are sweet.

MDC: Jason is looking for hidden weapons; you realize he is a professional.
LL: There are alternate routes to downtown FW from Decatur.
Anything else I can help you lower life forms with?

As for which woman wore the blue dress better... I think it was Monica.

I think it's funny you get pissy about someone misstating/misinterpreting your point and then you turn around and do the same thing by twisting the response as some kind of admission on their part, which it isn't.

Just more proof that your opines have no value.

9:24. When she "quotes" Jakie Kennedy, that's not plagiarizing , but you probably didn't learn about citations in English class if you were home schooled!

They will still argue with you. Doesn't it make you tired to read their comments?

OP

Article 25 of the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 states that "Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services."

It is undisputed that affordable healthcare is a human right per the UN and the WHO.

It is disputed whether affordable healthcare is (or should be) a constitutional right per the US Constitution.

9:41 - what are all these lies? Are you talking about the "Trump is a businessman," or "Trump is smart," or "Trump is ethical," or "Trump gives two shits about anybody other than himself" lies? Which lies are you talking about?

I love how agitated you get. Too funny.

Hello Mr. Green,

I was the one you called a nutcase yesterday for citing Alex Jones' infowars.com yesterday as a source on Wednesday.

Maybe this is a better link (actual website): http://www.reparations.me

The About page of same site: http://www.reparations.me/#!about/cjg9

Here is one from the Seattle Times. Better? http://www.seattletimes.com/life/lifestyle/artists-website-seeks-reparations-for-people-of-color-payment-for-this-morning-for-every-day/

You might want to do something about that white liberal guilt you have, sir.

They call me Mr. Nutcase.

"Your Dad" is a dumbass.

129 - C'mon, don't be coy. You tried to call someone out, I was either mistaken that it was me, or I wasn't. Just point out which commenter you meant, if it wasn't me, and we can be done. Just clarify who you're addressing.

But thank you for the opportunity to expand on my idea of made up rights.

Wordily gets put in his place, and thinks that's an admission by someone else that they're in over their head.

Hey, Wordy--Delete your account.

wordkyle said...

"It is undisputed that affordable healthcare is a human right per the UN and the WHO." As long as you put those qualifications on the opinion, sure. Sex with young boys is a right, according to NAMBLA, but it doesn't make it true. Every organization has its own agenda. The UN is a socialist wet dream.

Tell me more please. Give me a civics lesson on how rights don't exist if they aren't in the Constitution.

Maybe you didn't know this and I'll chalk your comment up to ignorance.

Charles Whitman was kept at bay by citizens that opened their trunks and took out their pistols and deer rifles until he could be overtaken.
Authorities have stated numerous times that he would've killed more people had that not happened.

320 - Now see, there's your problem. You misunderstand the situation. You're in over your head when you try to pick a fight with somebody, and you get one, and then you try to back off. I'm perfectly happy to discuss differences of opinion in a nice, cordial manner. But when you act like a dick, take anonymous potshots, then try to run away, well...you need to get called on it.

But again, I'm not really talking to you, am I? Everybody knows what you are from your comments. And I win, because I get the chance to reiterate my point to other readers, that healthcare is a privilege, not a right. People in certain areas get better healthcare, people with more money get better healthcare, and so on. Here's the deal -- if the government gives you a "right" (rather than recognize that it exists with or without government) then the government can take away that "right." Democrat interference has disrupted healthcare for millions, making it more expensive and less available. Those people's rights were taken away by Democrats.

322,

So you could not find that GED class, huh? Well, that is tough luck.

I think your fries are done.
