The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Overheard during criminal jury selection in Wise County this week: "I don't think we need to have a trial so long as there is one witness."
  • All Peter King does on Twitter is link to articles on his own SI website and calls them a "great read", "fascinating read", or the "the best thing I've ever read on . . . ." 
  • Watched a little bit of Bill O'Reilly last night and was hit with a NRA commercial. Why are they spending money preaching to the choir?
  • Donald Trump will announce his VP choice on Friday. My dream choice would be pastor Robert Jeffress. After all, Jeffress said he would vote for Trump over Jesus because "the Sermon on the Mount was not given as a governing principle for this nation."
  • "Pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children's safety and well-being." - 2016 Republican Platform. Whenever you see someone having to invoke "the children" to make their argument, there's normally some substantive deficiency. 
  • UT has now finalized their handgun rules. You can bring them on campus if (1) it's concealed and not open carried, (2) you have a CHL, (3) you can have a bullet in the chamber to give you one extra round, (4) you can't take it in an office without his permission of the "occupant" unless there are more than one occupant using the office whereby all you need is one occupant say it is OK to bring the weapon in, and  (5) you can't take your concealed weapon in a dorm. Got it? Sounds easy to understand and easy to enforce. Oh, and those rules only apply to the Austin campus. Campuses in Arlington, San Antonio, El Paso, etc. might have different rules.
  • Heard at the courthouse yesterday: "I've got an idea for a Random Thought girl. Have you seen those pictures of girls who are topless but cover up by holding in front of them a big fish they've caught?"
  • I had forgotten that President Obama called out Donald Trump at the 2011 Correspondents' Dinner: “But all kidding aside, obviously, we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. For example — no, seriously, just recently, in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice — at the steakhouse, the men’s cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks. And there was a lot of blame to go around. But you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership. And so ultimately, you didn’t blame Lil Jon or Meatloaf. You fired Gary Busey. And these are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled.”
  • Republican National Convention speakers: Tim Tebow in. Sarah Palin out.
  • The Fort Worth Mounted Patrol unit is heading to Cleveland today to help with security for the Republican National Convention. The only horses are 1,200 miles away?
  • The SMU cop who reportedly was swept away in Turtle Creek has still not been found. (Someone yesterday compared the event to the flood in Wimberley where two children are still missing after over a year. I suppose if you want to compare the Blanco River rising by 36' and sweeping houses off their foundations to Turtle Creek rising after a brief downpour in Highland Park, you have a valid point.)
  • I'm worried about our county records. The Update says who the jail inmate who died in early May died from methamphetamine usage. The official web site of Wise County shows that he entered a plea of no contest to a charge of Public Intoxication after his death. 
  • Tonight: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is heading to the White House to participate in a televised town hall discussion on race relations with President Barack Obama. This has disaster written all over it for Patrick.
  • Underrated town name: Lacy Lakeview.

Barry --

Your disingenuity this morning is startling. For one thing, you said you were watching an NRA ad and they were "preaching to the choir" yet you were the one watching. Are you telling your loyal readers you are now pro-gun? I hope so, but I don't think that's what you meant.

Regarding pornography, children, and Republicans -- the libs are way more likely to use the child excuse. Don't you know that? Who is writing your bullet points? Do you watch pornography? Is that what you're trying to tell us?

I'm not crazy about the conservatives either, Barry, but you never criticize the libs and they are obviously out of control. Please explain why you are so totally in the bag for the democrats and why you say you are a Christian. Please.

A Republican platform statement against porn? So they are willing to lose the future vote of every teenage boy with an internet connection? Not smart politics, guys.

That's okay. Jeffress can go ahead and accept the VP slot with Trump. I turned it down a long time ago when the Donald called. I mean, I'm a forgiving kind of guy, but sheeesh!

Are your children affected by you going to a porn site to get pics of RTG's?

Cleveland is expecting lots of trouble from your Democratic friends who want everything for nothing and don't expect to have to work for what they get. They are bring in law enforcement from all around to supplement the local PD there.

I read an article about this and all of the expenses are being paid by either the City of Cleveland or the RNC, but I can't remember which.

Out on the Republican Convention because of Tebow and Palin but the Democrats used Snoop Dogg as a representative that the media pushed. Definitely sad times!

The NRA has commercials on FOX because no one watches CNN, NBC, CBS, PBS, ABC or The View.

Invoking children: Guess you haven't seen Hillary's ad with children-

Barry's liberal mind set may have been influenced by his wife who must be Church of Christ. ( daughter sent off to Harding in Searcy, AR) The UCC has lost it's mind lately--

A summary would be "You are racist no matter what you do."

OK, do your step daughters have your blessing to earn a living via porn?

Regarding the Turtle Creek flood:

Stop being a dick. That guy has a family. It is almost like you are ridiculing him for being such a wussy to drown in a measly creek.

He's questioning whether or not the guy faked his death, genius. And I agree with him.

The H stands for "Holy". I thought everyone knew that.

You seem to get some weird enjoyment out of the SMU cop death and on top of that you continue to deride the search team. You also never mentioned anything about the Dallas cops, like how sad and senseless it was that they died. You only sympathized with the shooter.

Anonymous said...

Tell you what, bud. Next time Turtle Creek gets up big after a heavy long rain, jump in it and see. Enough of the snark about the guy faking his death. It is a legit danger when it floods.

Nope. It's because Fox is watched by older, white viewers. They vote in the greatest numbers and the NRA needs to maintain their support.

If you think the RTG pics come from a porn site, you're looking at the wrong porn sites.

Anonymous said...

1:18 is that you barry? Fox is watched by both sides -- look at the ratings. No worries about the NRA maintaining their support in any case. The biggest worry you and everybody has is when Obama and his storm troopers begin confiscating guns. I'll bet we'll see some fireworks then, whatdoyathink?

@12:12

So you and Barry are the founding members of the Tasteless Rudeness Club?

Congrats

Haha - if Obama's going to confiscate guns, he'd better hurry. He's had 7 years, but I guess he decided to wait until the last six months? Oh, I forgot, he's going to declare martial law and name himself POTUS indefinitely.

Green you are being a real a$$hole about the turtle creek potential drowning. Shut up about it if you got nothing nice to say d-bag!

The Clintons have taken over $200 million in bribes since leaving office.

Anonymous said...

2:44 -- ha ha you are too clever for me but it still doesn't alter the fact that Mr. Obama is doing everything he can to discourage Americans from owning firearms.

What's this about Obama declaring martial law? Tell me more. Do you really think he'd do that? It's not necessary, you know, not with Hillary waiting in the wings.

So why is the old boy so head up to go along with the United Nations and ban ALL small arms from citizens globally? Do you libs seriously believe such an action will lower the level of violence anywhere?

Or is it simply expedient to disarm everyone as the masters of fairness and equality push us into utopia? Over the sounds of the crackling cattle prods, I can hear the guards now, "Get in there or else! It's for your own good!" I can almost sniff the odor of roasting ovens.

Can you smell that? That nasty odor is the stench of our freedom going up in smoke.

Remember when the guy fell in the Trinity in River Oaks last year and his body was found miles away several days later? I didn't think so.

I was surprised that you didn't stop down today to do your weekly pissing on the grave of the kid that died in the Southlake natatorium on the news that they're adding lifeguards.
