The Campaign For DA

8.12.2016

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • I own these socks (but not the tennis shoes -- although I did have a pair of those sweet Converse back in the day) . . . 
  • "I figure it is probably, maybe the only way I'm going to get to heaven. So I better do a good job." - Trump on winning the Presidency. I've just been thrown into Theological Confusion and an Ethical Dilemma.
  • I just discovered that Decatur will play a regular season high school football game in the new indoor practice facility of the Cowboys in Frisco. That's cool. 
  • Hell or High Water looks good. But it looks like No Country for Old Men. If I hear a trailer that mentions Midland, Odessa, or Abilene I suddenly get interested.
  • "I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary and he's still all over country radio! Hypocrites!" - Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks.
  • It's August and still no trials in the Waco Twin Peaks' biker cases and the Montague County DA has still not released records to the Messenger regarding the shooting of the Wise County drug dog.
  • I'm not sure the last time I remember multiple days of rain projected in August.
  • A three year old boy was injured when he fell from a roller coaster in Pennsylvania. What's the world coming to when a three year old can't ride a roller coaster?
  • The NFL won't let Dallas players wear a decal supporting Dallas police in the regular season. This is the way it has always been: If the NFL can't make money off of something, they ban it. (Case in point: Get your official NFL pink breast cancer gear right here.)
  • Oldest player in NFL: Kicker Adam Vinatieri at age 43. To put that in perspective: Bill Clinton was in his first term when Vinatieri entered the league.
  • There was a high speed chase that dominated the local news yesterday afternoon. How did it end? He stopped. Obeyed orders to get on the ground. And the cops simply walked over to him and handcuffed him. Simple as that.
  • With the approval of a $175,000 legal bill yesterday, the City of Dallas has now spent $400,000 and climbing on fighting the Exxxotica Convention.  
  • Airing up a tire is tense. (I think that goes back to a 60 Minutes episode decades ago where there was a story on truck tires and defective rims. They would explode sometimes while being aired up.)
  • A taxpayer funded investigation (which must be labeled a "sting") in El Paso by the FBI and "the [state] Office of Inspector General - TDCJ and other law enforcement agencies" nets the arrest of six people who worked for taxpayers for allegedly -- wait for it -- falsifying records. The case will now go forward to those paid by the taxpayer who work in incarceration, prosecution, and the courts. The economic impact will be greater than the criminal justice impact.

"A taxpayer funded investigation...."
Are you implying that the persons involved should be allowed to continue to falsify records?

They would explode sometimes while being aired up.

Those are called split rims, but they're not used on passenger cars.

"...banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary..." - Proving once again that celebrities are no more intelligent or informed than your average Wal-Mart customer. Especially the Democrat ones.

Nothing about the bad fire at POCO graphite this morning? It was bad enough they had to call the fire dept in to assist. That fire is spewing dangerous anounts of hydrogen sulfide into the air! I bet 100 bucks that the EPA doesnt even find out about it.

Agree with 8:50 about Natalie....meanwhile think she's bitter much?

As for City of Dallas and the legal bills for fighting the Exxotica Convention--do you think some of the council are getting kickbacks from those fees? Seems like a legitimate question!

Seen more than one split rim truck tire come apart. That ring could take your head clean off.

Although I wouldn't call it a high speed police chase, I am proud of both the cops & the suspect on the way they behaved. That guy acted like he could hardly walk...not sure he was a robber.

If Jerry wanted to play hardball with the police decal situation, he would have the decals put on the uniforms (helmets?) anyway, then wait to see how big the cajones on Goodell are. He could be assessed a huge fine, which he can easily afford, but his legacy would be even further cemented with that gesture.

roller coaster: does PA not have a state regulation concerning minimum height/weight/age for amusement rides? That's just crazy!

How much does it cost (monetarily) one of your clients to fight a DWI charge vs. simply pleading guilty? Now, apply that same logic to the document falsification case.
The reason cases like that are so involved and complex, is because defense attorneys make it that way

I took a client to Twin Peaks the Friday before the Waco biker shooting, which I believe was on a Sunday. We still talk about how lucky we are not have been around when it happened.

He is a big biker looking guy who was riding his Harley that day. I was early for lunch so I went into the Cabela's adjacent to Twin Peaks. They were having a grand opening sale and I bought a butt ton of ammo. I still wonder what would have happened to us...me a business casual guy, and him, looking like a biker but no gang affiliation.

What is the significance of the Dixie Chicks?

Ad that's the fallacy of Wordkyle, 9:31. There are loads of redneck white Republicans on government benefits, and they shop at Wal Mart and buy cigarettes and booze instead of paying for food or clothes of their barefoot illiterate kids.

That might be a good deal, because unlike a DWI attorney, you can guarantee success

I can understand how you feel Natalie. Biden practically puts out a hit on Obammy and he's given the vice presidency!!! Hillary puts out the rumor that starts the birther movement and she's given the head of the Sec. of State!!! Yep, you got the shaft.

Its been a few weeks now and no mention of that dirty coach Briles who is wandering around football camps acting like nothing happened. But yet you write a post about TCU Micah and his parents decision to let him live that last few days of his life. The delusion knows no bounds for the Baylor homers.

You illiterate blockheads, I didn't even come close to saying either a) All Wal-Mart shoppers are Democrats, or b) Republicans don't shop at Wal-Mart. Trying to move my comment in that direction points out your lack of ability to focus on and follow a single line of thought; therefore leading to the conclusion that you probably vote Democrat.

P.S. If you didn't make either of the comments I mentioned, you're not the "illiterate blockhead" I referred to.
Also, while I don't normally resort to ad hominems, occasionally the impulse overwhelms me, especially when the object of the attack is so deserving.

And celebrities -- especially the Democrat ones -- are just as ignorant and misinformed as your average Democrat voter.

Yet another reason to stay clear of Alvord. It will be dwi city, along with the legalized exploitation that border lines sex trafficking of the females in the "It's all about the melons" contest, as well as having to hear non Christian lyrics from a ex cop who thinks he's wise county's gift to Jerry Falwell

Republicans pick a cult member as their last presidential candidate, and a full blown racist moron in this campaign. Hint, you were better of with the cult member.

Oh no! Wordily has resorted to ad hominem. Wait--he frequently does that. Sorry, Wordkyle, that high horse is just a rocking' horse.

Maybe you should spend less time on the blog and more at your local Toastmasters meetings down at Denny's.

Poco graphite employees probably started the fire so as to get out of work early good seats at the Alvord drunk fest / teen ogling melon contest

I can't believe the Dallas leadership has spent $400,000 so far on the Exxxotica Convention lawsuit. If someone was smart in city hall, they would have posted $200,000 at the beginning of the trouble for free lap dances at Dallas strip establishments and let the promoters of Exxotica use the Cotton Bowl free for their adult entertainment show. They would have instantly:

1. saved $200,000 in billable fees.
2. helped college girls earn their tuition through 10,000 lap dances.
3. finally used the Cotton Bowl for something that would pull crowds to Fair Park.
4. kept naked naughty bits out of the scared Convention Center.

Dallas, you can send me my consulting check via Barry Green Esq.

9:03 - were you at Poco during the fire or how did you know what was spewing? If a safety officer called 911, then yes the fire department would respond regardless the size of the fire.

You just don't seem to recognize the fact your views are not that popular and you pull a "Trump" on anyone that disagrees with you. That is not a compliment btw.

We all know you created ISIS, just in case you are wondering.
