The Campaign For DA

7.25.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • "Two people are dead and up to 16 are injured following a deadly shooting during a teen night at Club Blu in Fort Myers." Any "teen night" in da club seems like a dicey proposition. (Oh, and the youngest person injured was 12.)
  • The Democrats only had one job this week: Don't screw up. They didn't get even to Day One before an email scandal broke costing the job of the DNC head.
  • That person taunted the head of the RNC one week ago foreshadowing a screwed up Republican convention:
  • Yesterday a three year old child was left in a car in Dallas and died while her family attended Bible study.  That got me thinking. Does it matter where the parent was going when he/she forgets about a child in the car? Should any punishment be different? What if it hadn't been Bible study but the person went into a bar? What about to cancer treatment? What if he was in a mosque?
  • Uncomfortable father/daughter pictures . . .
  • Over the weekend Trump proved he could work for Liberally Lean as a copy editor . . . 
  • What is the reason that NASCAR is in trouble? At the Brickyard 400 yesterday, they may have drawn only 50,000. Just a handful of years ago it would regularly have crowds of over 200,000. NASCAR doesn't even announce official attendance records any longer.
  • It looks like the Crazy Texas Mom blog (over there ---->) has gone private.  It's been a long pattern here at Liberally Lean: Referenced blogs either suddenly disappearing or going private. (One wants told me that her blog was doing fine until "your band of monkeys" showed up.)
  • I bought a Maytag washer about two years ago, and it now looks like the control panel is out. I was disheartened to see a krillion complaints on the Internet about the issue. Throw in what would be two service calls and a part that costs well over a $100 and you've got to think about replacing the dang thing instead.
  • 40 years ago this week: The last Super Bowl Champion vs. College All-Stars game. How unstable was that. Can you imagine that game being played today when the college players have already been drafted? The risk of injury is enough to avoid it.
  • Lake Bridgeport CSI: "Samples collected by the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) from Lake Bridgeport on June 6 were examined using cross polarized light microscopy and suspect veligers [of zebra mussels] were detected."  Just throwing in "cross polarized light microscopy" would almost make me believe anything.  If I heard, "Mr. Green, we have used cross polarized light microscopy and have diagnosed you with leprosy" I would head to a colony.
  • Breaking: Travis County Deputy shot and killed in his Round Rock home. Early reports say it might be the result of a robbery.
  • Yahoo!, the company that could have been Google, has been sold for $4.8 billion. Remember Yahoo! bought Mark Cuban's Broadcast.com for $5.7 billion and did nothing with it (because nothing could be done with it.) 
  • Mark Cuban on The Ticket this morning wouldn't rule out running for President in four years. And he also went on a rant on how hard it is to get on the ballot in Texas and other places as an Independent.

I would love to see every e-mail from the Republican National Committee over the last 12 months with the word "Trump" in it. If you think those e-mails are different in any significant way from the DNC e-mails about Bernie, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

I think Trump's hands are appropriately placed in the photos you put up today. Some people are not afraid to touch, hug and kiss...some don't like it at all for some reason probably in their past. If your mom or dad are not very affectionate then you won't be either...think about it. To those people a hand on the hips or a kiss on the lips of daughter by the father is inappropriate...not everyone is a pedophile.

What is uncomfortable about the father daughter pictures? Dads are allowed to hug and kiss their daughters. If more did, we'd a whole lot fewer teenage girls looking for male approval and getting into trouble. Perhaps it's more comfortable for this blog to have young girls doing that rather than being close to their dads.

Russian government is suspected to be the hackers behind the DNC emails. The Russian media is pro trump who is friendly with Putin and has depended on Russian investors since 1980! Trump is going after Bernie voters and how convenient the emails were released yesterday!

Very rapid response from The Team to the DNC hack news. They're using two themes: a) "The RNC does it too" and b) "Russians (and/or Trump) are responsible." As an anti-Liberal, I really don't care about the whole thing. But Sanders supporters should be furious that the Democrat National Committee was working against them. But since Bernie himself has already made his deal with the Devil, they'll probably roll over too.

8:46 it's not just about Bernie. Seems the Democrates control the media. Emails about the DNC paying radical groups to riot and cause trouble at Trump rallies. Corruption all the way to the top. I'm sure liberals don't care. They prefer lying cheating crooked candidates

Just ordered the Maytag control panel online and replaced it myself. 30 minute job with just a couple of screwdrivers. Not difficult.

8:53 God does not make all your plans...he may know when you will die but it is your on decisions in life or the decisions of others sometimes that cause your death. People leaving their children in the car to die a horrible death is caused by the human inability to be perfect...sometimes an innocent mistake makes for a horrible outcome. Thank goodness He knows we are not perfect and that's why Jesus died on the cross so we can be forgiven if we only trust and ask for mercy.

Maytag used to advertise about putting servicemen out of business due tho the reliability of their product. I have a 30 year old stacked pair that I still use. I think that I have only had to replace one belt since owning them.

Barry, if you will permit a suggestion on the washer. There is only one reliable machine built to standards of machines of decades ago, when a purchase lasted 10 to 20 years. That machine is Speed Queen. American made. Metal tub. Good water conservation, yet a top-loader. I went through the horrors of a Maytag and a Kenmore. Both dead under two years. And they stunk and mildewed (fancy front loaders). Do the Speed Queen and you will be a happy camper. There is a reason that this brand is still the hands down favorite of commercial laundromats. Enough said.

Well to be fair, Trump is a billionaire running for president of the United States with a paid staff that should be triple checking any media comments that are made. Barry is just the hardest working man in show business...

My old washer was a Roper..it lasted 20 years. Went to Sears and had to buy a new one..it's so different; but I was smart enough to buy a top loader..those front loaders mildew unless your wipe it down with bleach once and awhile and leave the door open at all times so it will stay dry. The Sears guy told me washers these days are built to only last 5 years. Modern engineering stinks sometimes. Sure enough that washer lasted 5 years; but it still developed a mildew smell so bad I replaced it with a new one and a repair guy told me it's the plastic tub that's the mildew problem. He said to never switch your detergent type. If you wash with liquid detergent never use a powder detergent. Crap sometimes I used vinegar, bleach and one time I decided some Dawn might be good for a rug...no wonder it didn't last long. Now I am careful with what I wash. But this thing is loud and it gets unbalanced if I wash a bedspread or large blanket...hate my new washer..it's been two years..keeping my fingers crossed it holds up. You can still buy the old style but it costs a couple hundred dollars more..I'm going to next time...in three years I guess.

What in the world would cause you to believe that the RNC was in the tank for, working to favor, and helping Trump to win the nomination? Trump and Cruz were at the bottom of the list as far as the establishment, inner circle Republican party was concerned. One might suspect (cite any evidence you have)that the RNC worked to favor any of the others that ran, but you are being an apologist to a degree of absurdity to use the old "I bet the other side did it, too" defense. Your post is one more example of the willingness of Clinton supporters to turn a blind eye to her corruption. As long as the Clintons are active, the scandals will continue to roll out, and her boldness in impropriety increases with every rap she beats.

Anonymous said...

Consider replacing that control panel yourself esse'. Do your reseach but some (most?) are very easy pull and replace and you can handle it if this is the case.

Anonymous said...

The DNC wasn't working against Bernie. The individuals had opinions that they would rather have Clinton, and never acted on those personal opinions in an official capacity.

But like the guy said above, if you think the GOP e-mails aren't replete (I note your dislike for the "but the GOP..." response--and you should also note my counter-dislike for your "but Obama..." complaints every single day) with anti-Trump sentiment, you are crazy.

While I don't disagree with you, I also want to point out that Barry is a Liberal ("it's in the name"©) who, like all Liberals who see something they don't like, jumps into grammar nazi mode and ignores the message. The irony was too good to pass up.

Can you imagine that game being played today when the college players have already been drafted?

The players had already been drafted in 1976 as well.

I attended the penultimate College All-Star vs NFL Champions game at Chicago's Soldier Field in 1975. Penultimate merely means next to the last.

Barry... you have so much in common with Mark Cuban now that Cuban discussed trouble getting on the ballot as an independent. It's time.......a Cuban / Green ticket as independent in the 2020 presidential race.

Only problem is that Cuban appears to be a free thinker regardless of party. Barry could you free yourself from your Democratic bondage?

Sam Brows said...

8:53 - Preach!

the republican e-mails no doubt would be every bit as bad as the leaked DNC stuff (though if there are e-mails that prove the meeting between Bill and the AG was something other than a coincidence that dynamic changes); however, this is sausage making at its finest. Nobody watches sausage getting made and things to themselves, "my that looks like it'd be tasty". The fact that these have gotten out and prove some of what the Bernie fans have been alleging is just going to turn some folks off of HRC.

What is the reason that NASCAR is in trouble? At the Brickyard 400 yesterday, they may have drawn only 50,000. Just a handful of years ago it would regularly have crowds of over 200,000. NASCAR doesn't even announce official attendance records any longer.

Many people can't afford NASCAR anymore. As a result of the great Obama economic policies...

I replaced my old Maytag (lasted 20 years) with a Samsung, verdict?
Great wash, doesn't smell (it's a top loader), cut my water bill by 25%. Now I own a Samsung tv, washer, fridge, cell phone, tablet...have no complaints about any of their products.
Photos: totally appropriate, is called love between father and daughter, I guess I may also behave inappropriately with my boys, since I kiss them and tell them I love them every day.

So, if somebody said "Mr. Green, we have diagnosed you with leprosy", and didn't use some fancy techno-mumbo jumbo phrasing, would you not be inclined to believe the diagnosis, and just sit around until parts started to fall off?

Zebra mussel larvae are microscopic, therefore they used a microscope to find them. If you can see them without a microscope, it's way too late. The cross polarized light is merely the illumination method. Think of it as some pricey Ray-bans that reduce the glare.
If you call out the Maytag repairman to handle your washing machine issue, don't fall for the flux capacitor replacement part scam. And please don't mention your hot water heater!

NASCAR: Simple explanation is that the product is really poor across all divisions. Too much single file racing. Most of the real racing is out of the pits at 55 mph. Then at the end of the race, a yellow flag for debri to bunch them all up so we get the big crash at the end due to poor driving ability of the drivers. One thing they could do is to make all pit stops green flag pit stops.

All the drivers look and sound the same. Too polished. No chracters like Cale Yarborough, Bobby and Donnie Allison, Sterling Martin', Ward Burton, Dale Earnheart, etc... boring.

Not worth the price of a ticket.

We are screwed on the Zebra mussels !The P& W people are worried about boats transporting them when the spillway gates are covered with them ,first seen in Bport in the winter of 1914/ 15 on native clam shells . When there is four thousand cubic feet per second coming through the spillway fining someone for five gallons of water in a boat is stupid . Five hundred dollar fine too. Money generator is all that is ! They are present in all area lakes . Docks that were dry last year due to the lake level
in March are covered in them now !

NASCAR? Poor product. Single file racing. The only real racing anyone sees is the racing out of the pit during the caution at 55 mph. Add to it the weekly late caution flag for "debris on the track" to bunch of the cars for the late race crash. The drivers all drive, look, and act the same. No personalities and boring. If you want to see what it used to look like, check out the 1979 Daytona 500 (first flag-to-flag coverage on CBS). Too much money for a poor product.

If NASCAR was really serious regarding their product, they would eliminate the rev limiters, ban pit stops during cautions and make all pit stops green flag pit stops, and race on rain tires during the rain like F-1 does.
