The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Drownings: (1) Firefighter in Grapevine lake, and (2) Three year old at Lake Worth.
  • The Baton Rouge shooter used an AR-15 and served in the U.S. Military. We beginning to see a pattern here?
  • He had a pretty chilling youtube video: “One hundred percent of revolutions, of victims fighting their oppressors, from victims fighting their bullies, one hundred percent have been successful through fighting back, through bloodshed. Zero have been successful over simply protesting."
  • I've got a couple of buddies who are convinced that there is an actual revolution attempt coming. 
  • Fort Worth PD has gone to mandatory two person units and body armor.
  • The Omni Hotel had a nice sentiment last night but words seems to be ringing hollow lately.
  • In light of potential protests at the Republican National Convention, the Cleveland Police Chief said yesterday, "We planned for almost anything and everything. It’s game time. We are ready for it.” This is exactly what you don't want to say as the leader of the police. When you act like it's a fight - a battle - you'll get a fight or a battle. Chief Brown in Dallas would never say something like that.
  • Texas favored Cruz over Trump in the primary election. It is payback time: Spot where Texas gets to sit at the Republican National Convention this week:
  • The Texas Delegation this morning at breakfast. Cavenders must have had a busy weekend:

  • Speaker Paul Ryan posted a selfie with the interns at Capitol Hill. Spot the minority. Hopefully these kids from poverty and troubled backgrounds will now have an incentive in life:
  • What's up with the furniture in this 60 Minutes interview? Where is that? Liberace's old house?
  • On Friday, there was a failed to coup attempt in Turkey. But after thinking the last person I would want to be is a captured soldier in a failed coup attempt, I got Tired Head with news that the whole thing my have been orchestrated by the Turkey establishment to appear more powerful or that it was planned by a guy in Pennsylvania. 
  • In ten years, if anyone ever asks, "What year was it when . . . " just interrupt and say, "2016" and you'll probably be right.
  • Looking at BagOfNothing's blog, he and his family unit ate meals in four different restaurants on Saturday and Sunday in addition to going to a play and a museum and to a mansion on Lake Grapevine. Cue the orchestra music! Oh, I forgot to mention the candlelit massage and designer cake for the wife. We might want to put him on the watch list. We've got some AGB - abnormal guy behavior - going on.
