The Campaign For DA

7.05.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • "Mom accused of being drunk, dumping baby near Arlington creek." She had been acting crazy for over a week. I'm guessing there is more than alcohol involved.
  • Let me check where the "Kevin Durant to sign with Warriors" news is on my radar . . . Nope . . . Can't find it.
  • If you drink half of a Five Hour Energy drink do you get full energy for 2.5 hours or 1/2 full energy for five hours?
  • Headless body. Naked. Floating Off Sound Padre Island. Cocaine. Cash. "How a South Texas murder mystery led investigators to a US Border Patrol agent"
  • After first issuing e-coli warnings for the Trinity River at Panther Island, authorities gave the all clear signal yesterday. Let me tell you something. I wouldn't get in the Trinity River if you provided me proof that the entire body of water had been boiled and purified. 
  • "Georgia newspaper publisher jailed over open records request." This story really is amazing. And the ridiculous arrest was apparently spearheaded by a judge who was the focus of the request. “I don’t react well when my honesty is questioned,” the judge said. Poor baby. 
  • Speaking of, the Montague County DA has still not released the records associated with the killing of a man and the Wise County Sheriff's Office drug dog. Why not? 
  • Someone said yesterday that Bill O'Reilly doesn't make any money off of his Killing books -- that it all goes to charity. I seriously question a claim that O'Reilly would do something without personal benefit. I found where he told the New York Post that all royalties go to charity but, even if true, that's far different than not receiving any money due to the slapping of his name on the book. I mean, he could cut a deal for a $1 million advance with a royalty of .000001%. 
  • I appreciate a couple of you pointing out that what I heard at Twin Hills during the Fourth was not like the sounds of Syria. I must have been delirious when I wrote that. I would, however, like to point out you need to discern between literal speech and figurative speech. Or, as Sgt. Hulka would say, "Lighten up, Francis."
  • I'm finished with Season One of Game of Thrones. Get me that baby dragon!!!
  • Hillary and the President will travel on Air Force One today to a campaign stop for Hillary. I always thought it was weird that a President could use the plane during his campaign for re-election but this gets ramped up with the "she's the Secretary of State" excuse. 
  • In the middle of the night last night a car was reportedly swept off the road into Turtle Creek in the Highland Park area. (He called 311 beforehand saying that the water was rising.) As of this morning, they can't find the guy or even the car. That's weird. It's Turtle Creek. Not the Mississippi. (First responders, oddly, have already gone through a shift change.)
  • There were four drownings in area lakes over the weekend.
  • At 10:00 last night, The Rest of the Family in the House was blowing crap up outside while I was in the bed with trembling dogs. What's wrong with that picture?
  • Donald Trump now says it was a sheriff's badge and not the Star of David in his tweet making fun of Hillary. The Internet then responded with a ton of these pictures 
  • With my renewed past-time of fishing, I'm now concerned with the size of treble hooks. If a fish swallows one of those, you're screwed. Not as badly as the fish, but screwed nonetheless.

Trump changed a sheriff's badge to a round circle. Shouldn't the Japanese be offended because it looks like their rising son? Sheesh. I've had enough of this political correctness crap.

I believe the word is "pastime", not "past-time".

I googled image "sheriff star" and got this. The majority are six-pointed stars, the same image that Trump used.

This whole thing has the same odor as when Democrats tried to blame Sarah Palin for Gabrielle Giffords being shot. It's the kind of mentality you mock when its sufferers question Obama's birth certificate.

Look at the badge on Denton County S.O.'s website.

Like 8:50, I am also tired of this political correctness crap.

"I seriously question a claim that O'Reilly would do something without personal benefit." So when he gives to charity, what is his personal benefit?

Excuses, excuses....there is also a little thing called "good taste" and maybe a little use of "judgment" when making your little cute remarks.

But hey this is America ....right?

Go ahead and question. Surely there are lawyers involved so the definition of "personal benefit" could be skewed to mean whatever you want it to mean.

We know for certain that Nancy Pelosi, ole one eyed Harry Reid, and the great Al Sharpton ain't doin nothing for charity.

Really 8:50? Really? The Star was pulled off an Anti-Semitic site. How is it political correctness when someone is called out for their bigotry? Trump is pandering to our lowest parts of humanity. We are better than this as a nation. If you were to study history, you would know what the meaning behind the yellow Star of David. I have a feeling you are OK with how it was used by governments of Europe in the past, so feel free to move to a country where religious freedom is government controlled. You and your kind are not Americans.

You might want to take a look at Turtle Creek in Dallas during a big flood before making such uninformed commentary. The bends, the bridges, the deep holes, and all the places a vehicle could get lost for a while.

Wordy... If there was nothing offensive about the six-pointed star image, THEN WHY DID THEY CHANGE IT TO A CIRCLE? If he Trump truly believed there was nothing wrong with it, he would have left the post as is.

943 "The Star was pulled off an Anti-Semitic site." Maybe so, but the Trump campaign didn't do the pulling. Trump's social media director, Daniel Scavino: "The social media graphic used this weekend was not created by the campaign nor was it sourced from an anti-Semitic site. It was lifted from an anti-Hillary Twitter user where countless images appear. The sheriff's badge -- which is available under Microsoft's 'shapes' -- fit with the theme of corrupt Hillary and that is why I selected it."

If you have evidence that statement is false, please provide it.

Due to the extreme political climate and the threat of planned violence, the Old Settler's Reunion will be managed by elements from both FEMA and DHS this year. They will supplement and support the WCSO. Coolers will be searched and any suspicious activity will be investigated. As always, if you see something, say something.

9:43 - Did you put on a few pounds over the weekend?
Appears your panties are a little snug.

It's easy to call people bigots and lowlifes because you disagree.
It speaks to the Libtard thing right?

If you cannot control someone or something, then you try to control what other people think of them.

You are a credit too.....?? I got nothing................

The Trinity is not the best, but it's better than Rio. Huge floating masses of poop; cops greet you at the airport with signs of "welcome to hell" and that visitors may not survive visiting Rio. Signs as you arrive like "we have no hospitals"..."you will be robbed"...there are no police. Already, wheelchair Olympians robbed at gunpoint, visitors killed. Traffic does not move, crime is out of control and the mayor of Rio says "we have lost control of everything". State leaders warn of incredible dangers; athletes are cancelling like crazy and it will get worse. Zika. And now, a super bacteria made from all the poop, has been found in the waters there.

Everybody knows the only real badge is a five point star made from a silver Mexican coin. Really.

1026 - Oh, I don't know. Maybe because the Democrat media made such a stink about it, and Trump is a politician? This stupid "truther"-level discussion dominates the news. The essence of the Trump message that featured that star has been lost in the fog. Namely, that Hillary Clinton is malignantly corrupt, has lied about what she's done -- and your side ignores it.

Wordkyle, Trump is not a politician. He's a racist reality TV star who wants to bang his own daughter.

Well what is it Wordy? You can't have it both ways.

Ohhh. You hurt my feelings! Here is a summary of where the Trump campaign said they got the Star + additional screen shots of the site.

1240 - You'll need to explain your confusion. Despite all the accusations and implications, the Trump campaign did not pull the symbol off an anti-Semitic site. Was that unclear?

The Wise county sheriff's badge has lightning bolts on it. In this case its fitting tho, theyre pretty much Nazi's.

Anonymous said...

Wordy knighting up hard to defend the berm on the anti-Semitic meme. Thanks for the Google image search - every single six-sided star I saw on there had circles/balls on the tips.

Now, let's try the same trick by searching for "Star of David," with the results found here: https://goo.gl/9AJWML

Hmmm...seems like every single one has six points, with no circles/balls on the tips.

Let's pretend like we're watching Sesame Street - since pre-K seems to be an appropriate comprehension level here - Which Google Image search more accurately reflects the shape used in Mr. Trump's meme, boys and girls?

You ask what is wrong with you laying bed with trembling dogs? Everything is wrong with that picture. You are reinforcing the dogs behavior by giving them attention when they are like that.

You have dogs that don't like fireworks because you don't like fireworks. Correct the behavior and teach them that its just noise to be ignored.

407 - Your point regarding the rounded tips on the many six-pointed sheriffs' stars is well taken. What to keep in mind, however, is the "intent" of the Trump social media guy. (Since "intent" seems to be the proof your side needs.) He sees a "crooked Hillary" image, with a symbol the normal person would associate with a law enforcement badge and uses it as such. Slightly inaccurately, maybe, but easy enough for a normal person to do.

I realize you guys want to put this down as some sort of defense of anti-Semitism (of some sort.) But the image is all about Hillary's untrustworthiness and breaking of the law. There is zero, nada, zilch, about Israel, Jews, Semitism or anti-Semitism, or anything related to any of those in the image. It's only about her "crookedness." As I said earlier, looking for bigotry where there is none exhibits the "truther" or mentality that you guys always mock.

"with a symbol the normal person would associate with a law enforcement badge"

I would agree with you, except I'm not sure the "normal" person would associate a six-pointed star (absent the rounded tips) with a sheriff's badge. I think they're two different images, immediately recognizable to most, and if you put the two side by side, most people would quickly identify which is a badge and which is a Star of David.

Carry a small pair of wire cutters with you and cut the individual points off.Always replace them with steel hooks so they can rust out. Access them better sometime through the gills if they are deep .They rust pretty quickly ! Killing them today ?
