The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts




  • Dan Patrick wasted no time in embarrassing us all on Friday by calling the Black Lives Matter protesters in Dallas "hypocrites".  (Patrick's son is a judge in Houston and faces re-election from some guy named Robert Johnson. I don't know if the son is a good or bad judge, but I'd be concerned that he grew up with Dan Patrick as a role model.)
  • Radio talk show host Mark Davis continues his disturbing trend to the very, very far right. His contempt for the Black Lives Matter movement is over the top even going so far as to tweet, "'Peaceful' rallies spewing hatred of blacks, Jews, Muslims would be condemned for their content. Yet #BLM rallies are coddled, encouraged."
  • At Northpark Mall yesterday, some anti-Black Lives Matters protesters showed up. They looked like the "Git-Er-Done" movement. 
  • I don't exactly know what Pokeman Go is but it sounds like that strange game of geocache that Mrs. LL has been playing for years. 
  • The Baton Rouge police might want to throttle back a bit.
  • Lost in the Dallas tragedy: They still haven't found the SMU officer who reportedly drowned in Turtle Creek. 
  • "Chewbacca mom sings Michael Jackson’s ‘Heal the World’ in wake of shootings."  There have been a lot of tributes to the fallen Dallas officers but many are getting perilously close to "look at me". 
  • This is pretty amazing - Parker County inmates "break" out of their cell to help a jailer who looked as if he was suffering a heart attack. Video

  • Read somewhere on Friday: "I don't want black men killed by cops. I don't want cops killed by black men. I don't want kids killed in schools."
