The Campaign For DA

8.29.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • I watched the MTV Music Awards last night, and I don't think I've ever had a question mark appear over my head more often. 
  • There was a quadruple high school football triple header at Jerry World #2 in Frisco over the weekend and the kids were doing bits: 
  • 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick caught heat over the weekend for not standing for the National Anthem as a protest. I don't care, and I'm not sure why anyone would get worked up in a lather about it. (And it took America a while to get worked up. This was the third game in a row he didn't stand but the first time anyone noticed.)
  • Anthony Wiener did it again.
  • A "K9 Deputy" in Oklahoma died after being left in a car for 36 hours. The dog's handler was fired.
  • A theory I've held for years: Any movie which (1) was released before 2000, and (2) does not depict electricity being used is . . . not any good. Exception is Gone With The Wind. Edit: I might have to make Braveheart an exception or move my date to 1995. I forgot about that. 
  • This month's Texas Monthly
  • Say Dak Prescott turns out to be a stud quarterback. In 2018 the starting QB for the Cowboys will make $630,000 and in 2019 it will be $720,000.
  • How does Vegas do it? The line on first college game of the year, California and Hawaii in Australia, had Cal at -20.5. They won by 20. (And had the ball on the one when the game ended.)
  • There was a raid on a Trophy Club home last year and last week a guy who lived there pled guilty to federal child porn charges. I thought this was interesting: "Last year, officials with Google Inc. alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children(NCMEC) about child pornography on an email address associated with Craft."
  • You would think they would have a different name other than "cousin" since it includes both male and females. We don't do it anywhere else: Brother/sister, aunt/uncle, niece/nephew.
  • The TWU volleyball coach resigned after eight players suffered from rhabdomyolysis but says it is "unrelated" to the incident and only for "personal reasons."  (She was actually on leave three days before practices began.)

Colin Kaepernick isn't even a real minority. He she be hung by the neck from Anthony Weiner's weiner until he is dead!

You sound like you are upset that Google helped catch a child pornographer?

I want to know what the girl looks like that took the RTG photo...the nails give me hope.

Man, there has got to be something wrong with that Weiner guy.

And the Harambe bits are hilarious. High school racism always is, right?

(If you don't get the bits at the VMA, maybe you should tap the brakes on the Harambe bits. Something tells me you don't get them, either.)

Been saying for years Romo was useless. Now everyone knows I'm right.

Starting the week slow with the RTG. She looks, I don't know, wide and floppy.

"A theory I've held for years..." - Then I take it you're not a big fan of westerns? Unforgiven, Outlaw Josey Wales, True Grit, The Searchers, etc. seem okay. What about Gladiator? (Released in 2000, but still.) Braveheart? Ben Hur? Spartacus? Nothing?

Anonymous said...

Weiner and Huma-liation's marriage is about as real as Bill and Hitlery's.

And the media is only sensationalizing it to take the focus of Hillary and her racially dividing, lame ass, Trump hating campaign.

I wonder how the media can stand themselves.

That TWU coach was gone and had nothing to do with the practice plan that led to the illness - yet it looks like they are hanging her out to dry.

You probably like gladiator movies.

Oh Barry, once again making inaccurate statements.
Your kids will be using the proper vernacular in the near future regarding cousin.
They will say "prima or primo" -cousin female/male.
sobrino/sabrina
Tia/mia

Times are a changing….Go Hillary…..

Is a man that defends his home with a pink tee ball bat a fan of westerns....baaahhhhhaaa!!!

Anyone other than an LEO who was responsible for the death of a K9 deputy would be brought up on charges and probably do time. This could set precedent in Oklahoma as to the valuation of canine cops.

Anonymous said...

I'm with wordkyle on this one. The Ten Commandments, John Wayne movies, Wuthering Heights, all classic westerns?

The story on the K-9 being left in the car said that the officer didn't notice him missing until he went to leave for work several days later! I have 4 dogs and if one of mine is missing or out of site for more than half an hour I notice! How could this guy not notice his partner missing for several days?

I think there was not an outrage over Kaepernick not standing until he opened his mouth to explain his reasoning. That's why people have an issue now.

Weiner's wife is never home. He is just doing what nature and Darwin expects him to do. Absence makes one's heart grow fonder...............for someone else. Simple.

John Wayne was a draft-dodging wife beater. But hey, he was Republican, so that's OK with you guys.

Why burn him in public..why not just act on his theft and get rid of him...not enough evidence? Why didn't his judge do something?

I guess Wordkyle couldn't work in a "but Hillary" on the movies. Man, I think I'll knock off work early to celebrate. It's a banner day in ol' Wise County when he actually says something without inserting politics unnecessarily.

Ditto on all the films previously cited, with the exception of Sgt. York. Not that it wasn't good (one of my faves), but electricity already was in use in the time period depicted. Recall how Alvin marveled at the electric lights in his NYC hotel room, flicking the switch on and off repeatedly?
And his Army pal "Pusher" worked in the subway, which is powered by electricity

Not Taking a position on the Precinct 3 Constable but the Messenger is certainly on a witch hunt. I can think of several past county officials that have done far worse and got less attention. Oddly enough same precinct...Double fake Les Nessman

You also missed, "The Searchers," made before 1995. You apparently are not a fan of the old Westerns.

York should have been hung for objecting. So should Muhammad Ali or anyone else hiding behind religion whether it be of the goat humping variety or the sister humping variety!

You do know that Harambe was a gorilla, right? Just another idiot shooting his/her mouth off without having a clue what the topic actually is. Moron.

9:55 John Wayne was a draft-dodging wife beater.

That's what you're going with? Wayne was not drafted, but at 34, with 4 kids and only a fledgling career at that time, he did not enlist as some other more established actors did. Additionally, his studio threatened him with a lawsuit if he enlisted. So instead, he put his talents to work rallying for the American war efforts. It is true that he could be abusive.

Nonetheless, your comment seems to have less to do with John Wayne than the opportunity to create a potshot at Republicans.

Hope you're amused.

I am.

But he sought out his deferment because his career was about to take off and he thought he would age out of many roles of he served.

But hey, as long as you think he's only a wife beater, you keep on idolizing him.

Hey Bu breaking news straight out of WC regarding PARR and you didn't even give us your thoughts on it...enquiring minds want to know.

Triple Fake... said...

We've been thru this before, but feel free to continue skewing the facts
Wiki:
Wayne was exempted from service due to his age (34 at the time of Pearl Harbor) and family status, classified as 3-A (family deferment). He repeatedly wrote to John Ford saying he wanted to enlist, on one occasion inquiring whether he could get into Ford's military unit, but consistently kept postponing it until after "he finished just one or two pictures". Wayne did not attempt to prevent his reclassification as 1-A (draft eligible), but Republic Studios was emphatically resistant to losing him. Herbert J. Yates, President of Republic, threatened Wayne with a lawsuit if he walked away from his contract, and Republic Pictures intervened in the Selective Service process, requesting Wayne's further deferment.
U.S. National Archives records indicate that Wayne had, in fact, made an application to serve in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), that day's equivalent of the CIA, and had been accepted within the U.S. Army's allotted billet to the OSS. William J. Donovan, OSS Commander, wrote Wayne a letter informing him of his acceptance in to the Field Photographic Unit, but the letter went to his estranged wife Josephine's home. She never told him about it. Donovan also issued an OSS Certificate of Service to Wayne.

Boswell High School is a public secondary school in Fort Worth, Texas, United States. It is part of the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District

Yes, it is the SF QB's right to be a complete idiot. The USA is one of just a few countries that provides a means of justice and fairness for those oppressed. He's blaming America for the action of a few local police, who are by the way put through the justice system. What the SF QB fails to understand, it seems, is that it REALLY isn't a good idea to rob a store with a gun, threaten to kill customers, and then fight police officers when they take issue with that. Instead, it is somehow America's fault for "oppressing" the poor criminals.

Probably 1 or 2 people out to get Parr and they have posted 25 negative messages to make it look like a big deal.

Silliness.

Unbiased biographers have also stated the same information, using more reliable sources. Obviously a vast right wing conspiracy!

Anonymous said...

Maybe the SF QB should sit out of the game when the 49ers play in Chicago this year. He won't because his "stand" is shallow and ill-informed.

Anonymous said...

Come on TF, you can do better than take a swing at a typo.

Are unbiased biographers anything like the unbiased climate scientists Wordy is always going on about?

Nobody said it was a conspiracy, but Wayne is idolized by the same type of people who will overlook the faults of a Republican, but never someone on the other side of the aisle. As evidenced, anecdotally, by the responses so far.

Bony girls always poke you and are very uncomfortable since they have no padding. Fleshy girls, like today's RTG, are like an old comfortable well padded couch. Not as pretty as a new showroom model, but you can stay on them for hours and hours. Simply a pleasure.

Actually he was 4F, unfit to serve due to injury, from football injuries in college. I can't remember if he played at USC or UCLA. But I like how you turned it into something political when there was no political point to the subject. Bitter much?
