The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Trump yesterday: "I'm would renegotiate so much of everything." It's quotes like that which keep me smiling. 
  • In light of the SMU officer reportedly being swept away into Turtle Creek, the Dallas Morning News recounts when two students were pulled into the creek twenty years ago. One drowned. Her body, however, was found the next day. 
  • And another.
  • I think we all agree on something: The prosecutor in the now closed Freddie Gray cases, Marilyn Mosby, is a nutcase. (At least she didn't hide it.)
  • "STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) – A municipal court has cleared former Mississippi State quarterback, and draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott on charges of speeding and drunk driving."  I was prepared to explain how that was possible but the following sums it up:
  • But why doesn't the prosecutor just look at the case, put it in the "You-Gotta-Be-Kidding-Me" file, and reject it?
  • A lot of people are upset over the supervised release of John Hinkley, Jr.  Heck, thirty-five years is a long time for attempted murder.
  • Nancy Pelosi last night on Fox News on why a poll of "uneducated white men" overwhelming showed support for Trump over Hillary: "They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose." Fox News did their best to make it an issue but their efforts seem to have failed. 
  • Someone believed they spotted the Liberally Lean Mobile yesterday. Get me that decal!!!:
  • One of the nutcases who comment on here cited Alex Jones' infowars.com yesterday as a source.  Oh yeah? Well, I have some pretty, pretty good evidence that the earth is shaped like a burrito. Top that. 
  • I say this once a year: Every person placed on probation in Wise County is required to donate $50.00 to Crime Stoppers.  I never hear of that fund paying out a dime, I have no idea who is in control of it, I don't know if it is independently audited, and (most importantly) I'm begging to learn what the balance of the fund is. 
  • An off duty Fort Worth police shot a guy this morning who allegedly came at him with a box cutter. There sure seem to be a lot of box cutters out there. And why can I never find one when I just want to assault a box? 
  • I'm conventioned-out. But I thought the President was just average last night, Biden was good, and Kaine had a fairly funny Donald Trump impersonation (that is, if Ned Flanders tried to do that impression).  
  • But the Democrats did have a secret weapon in the audience to appeal to women last night:
  • Wait a second! Brad Cooper's girlfriend is a Russian!! Get me Hillary on the horn! DEFCON 1! DEFCON 1!

Actually last night was a pretty good night of tv. Liked Bloomberg the best. He didn't mention once how rich he is

You forgot to use the "nutjob warning" when you quoted Pelosi.

Regarding the box cutters comment, you've obviously never worked very much with anyone who works a blue collar job. Carried one for years before I went back to school to get away from the 120 degree warehouse.

Who needs Netflix for entertainment: trump news conference, out of control party conventions and Russia hacking emails. It is reality TV 2016 presidential election because no one can make this up! Lock up tTump for treason and Hillary for security viplations and let us vote for the vice presidential candidates; both nice guys!

Hey Bu....

From the update:

"TONIGHT AT REUNION – Joe B and The Baron will perform 9 p.m.-1 a.m. tonight at the pavilion at the Wise County Old Settlers Reunion. Carnival bracelets are $20 today through Saturday. Parking is $5."

You moonlighting now Bu? And more importantly, do you get cut of the bracelet sales and parking?

Hell, I'm not worried about Hinkley. Give that boy an AR-15, a ticket to the DNC, and access to Jodie Foster's Facebook page!

Anonymous said...

I guess that you overlooked the fact that James Brady's death was ruled a homicide caused by the gunshot he received from Hinkley. My personal feeling is that Hinkley should have been locked up for life in prison.

Regarding Crime Stoppers: According to the official Texas Crime Stoppers website, the address for Wise County Crime Stoppers is 200 Rook Ramsey Drive (gosh, that address sounds familiar), Decatur, Texas and the e-mail address is thompsonj@sheriff.com.wise.tx.us. According to the State Comptroller's website, Wise County Crime Stoppers is presently an active exempt organization, which means it is a charitable organization for purposes of your taxes, but it also means its books and records are open for inspection by any member of the public during normal business hours.

Concerning the 3 G's and God, I happen to agree with the "uneducated white men" except the part of a" woman's right to choose". I believe a woman does have the right to choose whether or not to have unprotected sex, not the right to choose to take the life of an innocent. Two wrongs seldom make a right.

The Crime Stoppers fund sounds a lot like the Clinton Foundation. They are both funded by criminals and we can't name a good thing they've accomplished.
I'm glad the president thinks so highly of my mistakes. According to Obama, the end results of some of my mistakes are four Americans dead in Benghazi, the loss of American trade secrets to China and security secrets to who knows, countless women sexually harassed by my spouse.

Brad Cooper's girlfriend is a Russian. Maybe she knows where the deleted emails are. Let me make a point that no one is talking about. There were supposedly 33 thousand emails deleted, if they were all generated in 4 years while Clinton was Sec. of State. Do the math and you'll see that comes to around 700 emails a day. That is a lot of emails that pertain to recipes, yoga lessons, wedding plans and communications with her husband(who admitted he doesn't do email). How did she have time to do the job of Sec. of State?

Some groups experts sayshe was a failure as Sec of State. That she accomplished nothing. Sounds about right.

Sam Brows said...

11:15 I think you miss the point of D.C.'s comment: two wrongs seldom make a right. Yup, the men get to take part in the whole unprotected sex decision just like the women, but in support of his point, I gotta ask: of those men who DON'T support the right of a woman to have an abortion, how many of them get to force the woman to have the baby so they can raise it up? Zero is the correct answer. So it's: unprotected sex - two people necessary to make that decision: kill an innocent life - only one person necessary to make that decision. That doesn't sound like equal rights to me. Roughly 945,000 abortions were conducted in 2014. That's more than all the American lives lost during WW2. But these are arguments and numbers that you've probably heard before. What I don't get, what i'll never be able to understand is this: the individual who is SOOOOOO in favor of a woman's right to choose to end a pregnancy, the person who has succeeded in getting the law changed to support his or her position, can't just take that victory and be happy. No, that person wants to strip others of the right to vocally disagree with that change in the law, to shut them down anytime they dare to disagree with the concept, much less the actual practice or its results. That I will never understand.

Hinckley:
When you attempt murder, and the target is the President, and you're mentally unhinged, you should never step outside of a prison or mental facility. Jimmy Carter was also on his radar, pre-Reagan.
He thought he could win over Jodie Foster, Travis Bickel-style, after she told him she wanted nothing to do with him - that's crazy! (Just put aside the fact that she's not interested in any guy)

The "and another" is another fine example of the "don't blame me" society we've become. She says it's not her fault, because school officials didn't report her to the police and didn't fire her after they found out about her misconduct. And she was allowed to seek work at other schools.
How does she justify what she did before they found out?

Obama and the DNC declared health care a "right." However, that "right" obligates a lot of other people to provide it and, in many cases to pay for it. No other rights in America, either God-given ("life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness") nor constitutional, require others to provide them. Only the batshit crazy Democrats assert such a right that doesn't exist, while hacking away at the rights that are spelled out.

I think I'm done watching the convetion.

Hillary looks like she's stealing Dr. Evil's wardrobe lately or maybe Kim Jong-un's, and her neck has disappeared.

I can't watch her because it just reminds me of how much I dislike Donald trump.

If Hillary had said "Russia if you're listening, find and release Trump's income tax reports. You'll be mightily rewarded!" the Republicans would be crying treason.

Ned Flanders is the stereotypical Christian character from "The Simpsons". The Internet is a wonderful place where memes come from. I was referencing having to choose between Trump and Hillary while also referencing BG's reference to Flanders when he said Kaine was like him.

Education is paid for by others, and is a right. Idiot.

wordkyle said...

252 - You're right. In those two cases, citizens are indeed conscripted into the service of the government. A couple of questions: Are private attorneys who provide counsel for indigent defendants required to counsel only indigent defendants? I gather government-paid public defenders offices do so, but in the absence of such an office, how does it work?

Your second example is not an exact rebuttal of my main point. If a plumber is chosen to serve on a jury, he is there to do government work; he's not required to provide plumbing work to the defendant. It's more like being drafted into the army.

But you did ding my not-well-phrased point, so congratulations.

412 - Is education a right? God-given or constitutional?

Hey idiot, where is the constitution is education enumerated as a "right".

If you mean by law, that can be changed, and is not a constitutional right.

The bad guy did not come at the FWPD officer, he went at a Tarrant County Deputy with the box cutter. The FWPD officer then shot the bad guy. After shooting him, the FWPD officer administered life saving aid to the bad guy.

And yes, I've needed a box cutter/knife many times for boxes. I've found a key will do the trick in a pinch.

Let's see - 33,000 divided by 4 years is 8,250 per year. 8,250 divided by 365 days is a little less than 23 per day. And of course that total would include incoming and outgoing - I RECEIVE about 85 non-business emails a day, and that doesn't count the spam. I have tried and tried and I cannot even figure out what numbers you use to get 700 per day - even a moron could understand that 700 only goes into 33,000 less than 50 times. But I bet you got an A in that math class at Trump University...

Wordkyle, Trump supports universal health care as the Republican nominee, so why are party members ignoring this? We are left with two liberals in November, but Trump is the outsider. His supporters are so angry they are willing to blow up the status quo! Can things get worse under a demagogue? How many wars will he start? How will he punish his detrators? A man that said he wanted to hit someone who spoke against him at the DNC convention, a man who bans a Washington post reporter from attending a rally, a man who plans to donate millions to a super pac to go after senator Cruz even if he is elected president; is this a man to be trusted? Trump will be the same if elected president. I'm not going to vote for him and may not vote for Hillary. Trump voters aren't stupid, they think it can't get worse, but it can and will if he wins.

729,

I have some of the same issues voting for Trump. But I cannot possibly vote for a proven, unindicted criminal.

She is a proven liar and thief. If you vote for her, there is no doubt what you will get. With Trump, there is at least the possibility he could do good for the country.

His children turned out pretty good. That is at least something.

wordkyle said...

729 - You're projecting a personal dislike for Trump into supposed future actions. Trump is what he's always been. Love him or hate him, you have to admit he's functioned very successfully in the business world for decades. Believe it or not, campaigning politicians have been known to say crazy things before. Trump's DIY presidential campaign features a candidate who lacks mouth control.

So you have future possible (if unlikely) actions that you think Trump might take, against real actions that Hillary Clinton has already taken. (Knowingly exposing top secret government info to foreign agencies, and very likely -- according to available evidence -- selling her influence as Secretary of State to foreign governments and companies.)

The next president will be either Clinton or Trump. The race looks to be very close. Not voting for Trump is essentially voting for Hillary, and vice versa. You don't get a bye in this one.
