The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Odd sight outside my office yesterday: My neighbor lady trying to crush a baby mouse with a metal pole (and with a little too much delight) and me trying to stop her. 
  • Not much to say about Trump's acceptance speech. Not great. Not horrible. Too long (1:15 ours - crushing his predecessors.)
  • If you were watching Fox News after the first night of the RNC, you wouldn't have learned about Melania Trump's plagiarism of Michelle Obama's speech. As the breaking news was being examined on CNN and MSNBC, Fox News' Sean Hannity never mentioned it per the Washington Post and signed off from his program proclaiming that it had been a “great first night.”
  • Here's Hannity's reaction to the story in the link above:
  • Hey, I understand that social media accounts of guys like Hannity are run by some intern flunkie in his twenties, but you would think the network would have better control than that. Then again, Fox News didn't control Roger Ailes very well.
  • Not sure why Trump needed to pat down his daughter for drugs or weapons last night: 
  • As of this morning, and for the third day in a row, Southwest Airlines is having computer problems. That's odd. You'll see news of a one to two hour outage every now and then but nothing like this. 
  • A former sixth grade teacher and Wise County resident had her conviction for attempting to buy drugs affirmed yesterday. Think of the number of people involved in this low level drug crime: Cops set up a sting operation, they meet (no drugs exchanged in this $100 transaction), arrest, book in, brief stint in jail, bond, grand jury, lawyers on both sides, court hearings. a full trial, a probated sentence, an appeal, briefs filed, a court of appeals review. 
  • "2 Former Florida Paramedics Charged in 'Selfie War' With Patients." I huge question mark just formed over my head.
    Obviously innocent.                   Obviously guilty.
  • Sheriff Joe was a last minute fill in at the Republican convention last night. He must not have said anything crazy since I haven't heard anything about it.

I believe that on most people's calendars, today is a Friday. Not sure which calendar you are looking at!

Trump was being affectionate. What the hell is wrong with that? You and all the Democrats are really reaching. Either that or you don't know what it feels like to freely give and receive genunine affection.

Skippy, you sure are making a big deal about Melania's supposed plagiarism. Joe Biden did the same thing and it didn't hurt him. Look where he's been the last 8 years.

Barry is concerned over Trump's wife's speech, but couldn't care less about Hillary and Bill selling U.S. foreign policy to the tune of $220 million dollars.

I asked the question yesterday if the major news networks would vilify Hillary for inviting the mothers of thugs killed by police to speak at the DNC convention like they did the ONE mother of the murdered CIA agent in Benghazi at the RNC convention. Lo and behold, it's being reported today that sure enough Hillary is inviting the mothers to speak. Watch the networks praise them and give them lots of exposure.

How ever long Hillary's acceptance speech is, it will be as painful as fingernails on a chalk board listening to her yell and bark. The number of people at the convention with ankle monitors should tell you all you need to know about libtard weenies.

I hate to see Obama leave. I don't know anyone trying to find a new job. They all love their affordable efficient health care. We can choose the bathroom we want to enter. There is no racial strife, only harmony. I can hardly believe the peace in the Middle East. Where did all the terrorists go? I guess that Nobel was well deserved. I'm not hearing much about Global Warming now, just Climate Change. It's been a nice scandal free eight years

Stephen miller, former Jeff sessions staffer, wrote trumps acceptance speech! Too long, short of details but full of promises and "believe me". In contrast to senator Cruz speech on freedom, trump was about winning and making America rich again! How will populism appeal to the voters? His speech writer is betting on the blue collar worker to vote republican but there has been a swing in demographics; he reached out to gas but not minorities. Don't blame Cruz if republicans lose, he gave him a way to win back the white house! A 30 year old campaign advisor or a true constitutional conservative?

Because facilitating uranium mining claims in the US to Russia is a wonderful example of our former Sec State's (via the Clinton Foundation) shows such clarity in decision making.
Go Hillary!!!!!!!

Lord, I remember both Bill's and George W's second term convention speeches. What a beating! While they both felt they had to be wordy for the second time around, I'll never know.

@9:15

Who would you prefer in the White House: Hillary or Trump?

Those are your only choices. Deal with it.

As a conservative, and not voting, is a vote for Hillary.

As a liberal, and not voting, is a vote for Trump.

Easy as pie to understand. Bitch all you want, but those are your choices.

Man up!!

12:45 sorry but the lessor of two evils is still chosen evil. I'm not willing to give approval with my vote to either candidate. Face it, two liberals from new York with no moral compass are the candidates. Cruz convinced me not to stay home like millions of evangicals did in 2012 but to vote my conscious down the ballot! Today trump is defending his stupid crazy conspiracy theory about Cruz father being involved in the killing of president Kennedy! This man has a mental problem and not to be trusted! Hate hillary all you want, but recognize trump is not fit to serve as leader of the free world.

How do you think Clinton would greet Trump's daughter? Either one...

I personally know Ms, Johnson, I haven't been around her in a few years. I liked her then. HOWEVER, if you break the law no matter who you are you have to suffer the consequences.

Amen, 12:45! Trump is nuckin' futts.

Oops! I meant to say Amen 2:24. He / She is the one that sees Trump for the madman he is.

wordkyle said...

"...trump is not fit to serve..." That idea keeps flitting around, and it implies that he's too unstable to function. Trump may be many things, but he's managed to create a very successful career spanning the last forty-plus years. So Trump's not being "fit" for the office doesn't seem like a particularly strong argument.

The question I have is this: Regardless of how personally distasteful Trump is, how can anyone vote for a woman who compromised the security of the United States so she wouldn't be inconvenienced? (That's not a Republican conclusion, it's been made by the FBI and other Democrats.) Who, according to evidence and to other Democrats, may very well have sold her influence as Secretary of State? How could anyone possibly think such a person is "fit" for any office at all?

Wordkyle, trump depended on Russian investors since 1980, filed 4 bankruptcies, is being sued for fraud, tied to the mob and won't release hid tax returns. For 20 years, he has wanted to be president. Two of his advisors are closely involved with Gazprom and the former leader of Ukraine! Again, if Trump believes senator Cruz father was involved with the killing of president Kennedy, he has a personality disorder making him unfit to serve. Don't overlook character just because someone is rich. Hold your nominee accountable; if you approve you own his craziness!

"Don't overlook character just because someone is rich" - As Democrats continue to do despite the revelations about Hillary Clinton's behavior and actions.

As for the rest of your Trump allegations, just give your sources and we'll be able to evaluate them one at a time.

For the record, Trump is not my nominee. I supported one of the Republican losers. He's only desirable in the sense that he has not, for example, exposed top secret government information to foreign agencies....as has your Democrat nominee. Trump is the only other presidential candidate who can stop her.
