The Campaign For DA

7.12.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • "What To Do When You Get Pulled Over - Coffey Anderson PSA"  He sure makes it sound like we should be on pins and needles when we see a cop walking up during a traffic stop. (Admission: I've never heard of Coffey Anderson.) 
  • President Obama heads to Dallas today. History will treat him well. There will always be a segment of the population which is on the wrong side of history. Remember that ad in the Dallas paper and the handbill before JFK's fatal visit?:
  • Photo in Star-Telegram accompanying a story on Open Carry makes me believe that shorts and a handgun is a bad look:
  • In reading the Killing Reagan book, I had completely confused my memory about the Falkland Islands and Grenada. (Quickly: Which one did the U.S invade? Which one did Great Britain invade? Fun fact: Both are off the coast of South America yet are over 4,300 miles apart.)
  • And I had no idea that Fox News head, and possible Gretchen Carlson predator, Roger Ailes came up with Reagan's line of, "I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience." (The book said, however, that Reagan was coached to use a Bob Hope-like pause when delivering it. He didn't.)
  • Trump this morning: "Crime is out of control, and rapidly getting worse." Does he just makes stuff up on the fly?
  • From the Washington Post: "The new ads . . .  are being launched by the pro-Clinton Super PAC Priorities USA, and combine footage of Trump [in his own words] with animation and a [literal] 'WTF' theme, which suggest a particular focus on young voters." Here they are: Chauvinist, Choice, Deportation Force, Climate Change, and Minimum Wage.
  • If Trump picks Newt as VP they, in combination with their wives and ex-wives, will be one short of fielding a baseball team. 
  • A phrase you don't hear any longer: "Just rub some monkey blood on it."
  • I had to take two links out of a new watch and couldn't do it to say my life. (A youtube clip demo'd doing it with a regular hammer and a paperclip. Sheesh.) I finally bought a $6.99 "Watch Band Link Pin Tool Kit" and the job was done in three minutes. A buddy once told me: 90% of any project is having the right tools. True that.
  • "Not enough mental health funding, let the cop handle it. Not enough drug addiction funding, let’s give it to the cops. Here in Dallas we have a loose dog problem. Let’s have the cops chase loose dogs. Schools fail, give it to the cops. 70 percent of the African-American community is being raised by single women, let’s give it to the cops to solve as well. That’s too much to ask. Policing was never meant to solve all those problems." -- Dallas Police Chief Brown who is spot on. 
  • Random stat: This is my 19,121 post. (Not bullet points but total posts.) I'm either disciplined or OCD.

Britton owns the Falkland Islands so it was not an invasion. Argentina invaded the Falklands. Britton liberated it. Granada had been invaded by communists. The U.S. liberated Granada and was greatly thanked.

Hey Bu, if the rest of us are on the wrong side of history, then you should know enough to realize that you and your ILK live in the wrong part of the USA.

No matter who Hitlary picks for VP, between her lesbian lovers and Bill's concubines, they could field two soccer teams.

"Trump this morning: "Crime is out of control, and rapidly getting worse." Does he just makes stuff up on the fly"

It all depends on time frame.

If you mean over decades, then crime is down.

If you mean over years, then this year is going up in violent crimes.

If you mean in recent months, violent crime rates are definitively up.

IF you have never been a victim of crime before, and a thug has a gun pointed at you, then crime is definitely up.

So get your stuff straight.

"President Obama heads to Dallas today. History will treat him well. There will always be a segment of the population which is on the wrong side of history."

So being opposed to higher healthcare costs and increased racial strife makes me on the wrong side of history?
Bowing to down to the Muslim world makes me on the wrong side of history?
Having the president constantly chime in on racial incidents (without all the facts) while an investigation is still ongoing makes me on the wrong side of history?

Time will tell. Why haven't you discussed the obvious discrepancy between FBI director Comey's statements and the elements of the Code Billary is accused of violating?

I guess history will be kind to her when the left gets to write the book.

Ummm...yeah. But it's things his voters want to hear, so it doesn't matter if it's factually accurate.

Regarding Coffey Anderson. I was taught most of those things by my father 30 years ago.

We are middle class whites. It is called common sense.

"Crime is out of control, and rapidly getting worse."

Chicago set an all time record for shootings and killings in 2015. The shootings and killings in Chicago are even higher in 2016.

What's that you were saying again?

Greg Lowery will be elected District Attorney for another term. History will treat him well. There will always be a segment of the candidates that are on the wrong side of history.

Coffey Anderson is a lesser-known country singer from central Texas that played basketball at Howard Payne Univ. (we attended together). He made it pretty far on American Idol a few years ago.

As is his right, BG uses his blog as a Democrat advertisement. Interestingly, he continually points out Trump or Republican negatives -- of which there are many, granted -- yet ignores his own candidate.

What has Hillary Clinton done? She has zero accomplishments as a public figure, other than standing by her man. Her political victories have traded on his name. What has she actually done, that we know about? She ignored advice from experts and exposed American government information to foreign agencies. (Not an opinion; it's what the FBI found.) She has then told a progression of lies to protect herself. (Again, not an opinion.)

What Trump says is so mundane (when it comes to running the country) compared to what Hillary has already done, that it's no wonder Democrats are ignoring their own candidate.

Obama is on the wrong side all the time. He was wrong with the Cambridge incident. He was wrong on the Travon Martin incident. He was wrong in Ferguson, MO. He was wrong in Baltimore. He was wrong at Ft. Hood. He never helps these situations, he adds fuel to the fire instead of helping to bring about calm and peace. I suspect he'll do the same today.
When I heard the Dallas chief of police yesterday telling the BLM protesters to step out of the protest lines and not be part of the problem but help resolve the problems by applying there and they would be trained and assigned to their neighborhoods, I thought to myself "this is what we should be hearing from our president", but he's always such a disappointment.

As an answer to that question, Clinton was Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, New York State Senator from 2001 to 2009, and First Lady from 1993 to 2001.

There are so many better ways to go after Clinton than to just lie -- i.e., "zero accomplishment as a public figure."

So the title in your mind is an accomplishment? Given an opportunity to be those things....wouldn't you like to actually accomplish something?

I'm sorry am I interrupting your afternoon soap opera?

Nanny government is responsible for the "monkey blood" being banned. Omg - it had a minuscule amount of mercury in it- and mercuracrome went the way of the filament light bulb and real toilets.
Hey Barry, speaking of flushing stuff down the toilet, did you hear the two socialists this morning and their clarion call for more goodies doled to the great tide of non - productive citizens. (And non-citizens)?

1225 - You mentioned elections she won, trading on her husband's name (as I said) and the fact that she married him. You did your best (I guess) to rebut my statement, yet still couldn't give an example of anything she actually accomplished. You actually strengthened my point.

If history treats Obama well, scholarship is absent....and revisionist historians do all of the writing. Obama is an idiot by many measures.

Not supporting the killing of police officers is the wrong side of history? Supporting a racial war is the right side of history?

I just simply can't believe all the people including Obama that consider the Dallas shooter to be a hero!

19,121 posts = avg of 1 post a day for over 52 years. As such, I'm going with OCD. Just kidding! Throw in your running / jogging, and it's surely discipline. I mean who in the hell would ever subject themselves to such boring, ass-whoopin activity as jogging? Post and jog on, LL. I'll drink a beer and read the blog (religiously = great discipline) in support.

333 - Yet Democrat ads don't tout those "achievements," do they? (Quotes are because many are dubious. "Most traveled Secretary of State?" And Republicans mention the Clinton Foundation (corruotion) more than she does.)

Clinton herself has had trouble answering the question, and God help you if you ask the average Hillary supporter for something. My original point was that our host, in his many pro-Democrat stances, ignores his own candidate.

So...WK.

Please point out Trump's political accomplishments.

I'm sure you have an extensive list of elections won, political issues resolved, peace achieved in (insert country name here).

I breathlessly await your extensive list.

wordkyle said...

902 - Go ahead and breathe, pal. Trump is not running on his political experience. Besides, you're simply diverting away from the Democrat candidate, which is what her supporters seem to want to do.

Also besides, I have no intention of defending Trump or the Republican leadership. Trump's main attribute is he's not Hillary Clinton. But here's a brief list of what she did that he did not do:
- Knowingly risk exposing US government secrets to foreign agencies.
- Take that risk against repeated warnings from experts.
- Repeatedly tell lies to cover this activity, changing the lie as new evidence came out.

Hillary Clinton purposely put her own convenience above the security of the United States. (Or alternatively, ignored security to hide her illicit activities.) To elect such a person to any office, much less the presidency, is the height of stupidity.
