The Campaign For DA

7.06.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • I got jumped by the neo-cons on here on Monday for saying, in a tongue in cheek fashion, that "I missed Saddam".  (I kind of long for the days when Iraq was stable and people weren't being blown to bits on a weekly basis.)  Last night Donald Trump one upped me by praising Saddam for torturing and murdering people who he considered, by his definition, to be terrorists.
  • Snoop Dogg will headline the Democratic National Convention. If the Republicans are thinking Lee Greenwood, Charlie Daniels, Toby Keith, or any one of the thousand of Bro Country bands (singing about trucks, beer, creeks, fence posts, etc.), this race is over. 
  • Get ready: Baton Rouge police executed a black man while he was restrained on the ground. Video. Protests have begun.
  • I posted the other day about Walter Lynn, the former KLIF talk show host, who had essentially become homeless after plummeting into alcoholism. He's been located and now staying with his brother. But I'm not sure what I think about the "Go Fund Me" page for him which has appeared. Interestingly, yesterday the goal was $25,000 but now it is $5,000. This morning, $961 has been raised.
  • Someone called Wordkyle out yesterday by saying that every criminal case has an element of intent. That is 100% wrong. Criminally negligent homicide has no element of intent. DWI has no culpable mental state at all. 
  • I want to travel with just a backpack.
  • There's a 17 year old Plano baseball star who had signed with Oklahoma State who now sits in jail after allegedly sexually assaulting two young kids. One of the children, age five, said she recalled being assaulted all the way back to age three. That should send off warning signs to the investigators. (And since he's 17, he's an adult for criminal purposes so everyone knows his name -- guilty or not. Maybe if he clears his name he can buy a beer in over three years.)
  • I don't fly that often but I'm not changing planes to get to a destination.
  • The Austin American Statesman has released its Pre-Season college football poll. It begins (1) Ohio State, (2) TCU, (3) Alabama, (4) Baylor.  Is everyone drunk in Austin? Baylor is the biggest wildcard I've ever seen, and TCU probably isn't in the top fifteen.
  • A North Carolina couple is charged with assaulting each other with pizza rolls. It may be no big deal (and maybe not even true) but at least the book-in photo looks like two people charged with such a heinous crime.
  • Should I see a psychiatrist if I want to kill that annoying Progressive Insurance gal?
  • I'm probably wrong, but I get this weird vibe about the SMU cop who is missing after his car was found in Turtle Creek.  There is grainy video footage showing him exiting his car before it went into the creek although it is presumed that he was swept away. But the media reports use weird phrases like he "reportedly" was drowned, his body hasn't been found, his identity has not been released, he "calmly" reported rising water after he called 311 instead of 911, and it wasn't even the lead story last night. Like I said, I'm probably wrong about having the weird vibe. (That, my friends, is covering all basis.)

I have the same weird feeling about the cop missing sounds like a perfect exit plan.

Yes, nothing does more to invoke thoughts of Apple Pie America and good wholesome values the hearing a rendition of Snoop Dog. Too bad Marilyn Manson wasn't available for the DNC convention.

Leftist like Barry don't realize that Iraq was relatively stable after the surge.

Their leftist fool president then kept his campaign promise by pulling U.S. Forces out of Iraq.

Not an execution. Bad guy had a gun. Officer who took bad guy down yelled "he has a gun." Other officer drew his gun and told bad guy not to move. It's hard to tell what bad guy was doing with his hands, he wasn't in handcuffs.

Barry,

Your comment about Saddam was just a stupid thing to say. Admit it, move on.

The race is over because the game is fixed and I was saying that before Trump uttered the words. Heck, I've been saying that for years. As a result of all the hubbub, I suspect Hillary has a bigger target on her back than JFK.

Those Baton Rouge police-wonders should be taken out and shot. Murder is murder.

I am not a lawyer (thank God), but I knew the statement about intent was incorrect. So how often do we hear some spouted nonsense here?

That 17 year old Plano kid will never clear his name. That kind of dirt won't wash off.

I was forced to see a shrink when I admitted to wanting to kill my ex-wife. That was 20 years ago and I'd still like to kill her. It's one of the only thoughts I have that can make me happy any time night or day.

The Dallas cop story is weird but it's covering all the "bases".

Keep up the bad work. Somebody has to show us what the liberals are thinking and you do a great job typing up their talking points.

Did I miss something? Is your run for DA over? I must have been out walking the dog.

Can you guess who I am?

The SMU has a lot of friends that aren't interested in your "weird vibe"; perhaps go over the campus security office and share with his fellow security folks about it.

He ain't wrong very often. I finally learned something from an attorney. Can't say it will be useful.

I had the same thoughts about the SMU cop. Sumpin' ain't right.

I wonder why Ronald Reagan didn't respond to Saddam's gassing of the Kurds in 1987 & 1988. Sheesh that was 15 years before Dubya and Cheney invaded Iraq. And the Reagan administration supported Saddam's war with Iran during the 1980s.

The PRESIDENTIAL RACE was over yesterday morning. HILLARY 2016

The DA RACE was never a race. There was some wanna be who burned so many bridges that he couldn't even muster up enough signatures to get into the race. LOWERY 2016 (and I don't mean "chris")

Anonymous said...

And you wonder why you could not get the signatures to run as DA, one only has to read your blog to understand what side of law and order you stand on but you are a lib so we expect lies and deceit from your type. By the way what color is that kayak you fish out of? I'm on Bridgeport often. It's time for a wake check just to see if you can swim..see ya soon

I can't imagine how and why the Flo advertising campaign has worked so well for Progressive Insurance for SO MANY YEARS.

The woman is unfunny, annoying and just plain awkward.

The same statements apply to those two dorks from the Sonic commercials.

You nut jobs with a "vibe" that the officer is faking his death need to understand that Turtle Creek when flooding is a raging river with trees, bridges and any number of death traps for someone trying to get out of a vehicle. You are going where the water takes you. You can't swim sideways and slip up a bank. You are thinking it's just a little creek and how hard can it be to get out? It empties into the Trinity, which is also flooding and very high. The guy drowned....give it a rest. Vibes based on complete ignorance of a situation.

Baylor is not a wildcard this year. Baylor is the bloated dead dog on the side of the road in Texas in July.

Don't mind the maggots.

Pizza rolls? Seriously?! If that's the best they could do, then we need to enact a dumbassery law, and charge these two lameoids with that. Plus the gal needs to be charged with something for the crime she committed with that hair color.

Toby Keith has been straddling the fence of late, politically. Used to be a Dem but supported Bush, then went Indie. I think he would have trouble showing support for either party's candidate, the same way lots of folks are thinking "Really, this is what we've come to now?"
But if you think songs about smokin' the sticky-icky and tapping hoes is your idea of swaying the masses, then yeah, this is what we've come to

The "I don't do connections" comment about flying doesn't surprise me when I am sure your idea of cultural exchange is rubbing elbows with Pedro from Guatemala at the garden line at Lowes.
Sad, some of the "worldly" Wise county ideology and stereotyping reminds me about the old adage regarding not being the lead sled dog.

Newsflash. Someone pinned to the ground that has a gun in hand can still shoot and kill you. Guns work even when fired by someone who could barely reach it and was lying on the ground.

12:41 --

You must be a cop to so readily believe what the other cops say.

What I saw in the video -- with my own eyes -- were two cops holding a man down and then shooting him.

American cops are just another government privileged class with a license to kill. I really shouldn't say "just another" because this particular class of government workers prove themselves to be psycho and corrupt somewhere in the US every day of the week.

A few bad apples? BS.

No, on Monday you made a highly insensitive comment, got called out for it, went defensive in the comments anonymously to try and squash it and when that didn't work, (eating at you still) today you come up with the Donald Trump is worse excuse.

How about this, man up, own your words and admit your comment was a stupid, poorly constructed attempt at slamming war supporters. I don't know what a "neo-con" is, probably similar to a "libtard" in the context used, but I know this country is in trouble when people are so divided they completely excuse the horrific things their candidate has done simply in hopes of a win. Chew on that for a few days!

For you anti-gun folks who want to disarm law abiding citizens, if you get what you wish, only the bad guys, IRS agents and other governmental employees, and the cops will have guns. How does that really make you feel?

Regarding "taking out" the Progressive lady, the question would be if you intended to kill her (criminal charges), or if you killed her through incompetence, poor decision making, or ignorance of the laws regarding homicide. Then we would have to determine if the impact of the death was insignificant, which we would let you be a part of determining. If insignificant, HRC defense for criminal activity would apply, and you sir, will walk.

Them pickininnies went and got themselves organized, elected a muslim to the WH, and now they run the ranch! Just how do you suggest we get them bastahds to act human? I'm serious here. We got probs with the black people and it ain't racism, it's out of control, criminal behavior that goes all the way up to the HNIC. I ask again, short of opening hunting season, how the H-E-double hockey sticks can we get animals to act human?

Re: changing planes.

When I go to Newport RI I can fly direct to Boston and have a 1 1/2 hr drive. Our I can change planes in DC at 2 1/2 hrs, do the other hour and a half after some food and a real bathroom break. AND..... this way I fly into Providence which is an hour closer to my destination. Flight is usually cheaper as well.

While not an attorney, I thought negligence was doing wrong without, or regardless of, intent. If there is intent to harm while committing an act, then the charge is something else. Exactly why Comey's statement that the FBI could see no evidence that Clinton intended to harm the USA is irrelevant, if the charge is criminal negligence. And he made several very strong statements describing her negligence.
