The Campaign For DA

8.08.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Someone chastised me for saying the law was "stupid" for making it a felony to steal a penny. He said that it wasn't broken but that it just needed to be tweaked. If a law needs to be tweaked it, as written, is a dumb law. 
  • I've watched very little of the Olympics, but I was watching yesterday afternoon live when female cyclist Annemiek van Vleuten had the horrific crash that put her in intensive care. I thought she was dead.
  • If you close your eyes, every gymnast sounds like a munchkin.
  • Someone remarked how we are so busy taking pictures that we never really look and enjoy what we are taking a picture of and enjoy the moment. (Use the Grand Canyon as an example.) I thought of this when I saw a clip of Denzel Washington walking past some Cowboy fans at training camp. One lady turned her back towards him so she could take a selfie with Washington in the background.
  • I actually heard a guy announce he was Colts fan and that he expected the Hall of Fame Game to be a "good game". Buddy, there has never been, nor will there ever be. a pre-season game that is a "good game."
  • Last night Fox 4 News teased that a retired Fort Worth Zoo employee died "surrounded" by 70 snakes in his home and "we will tell you how he died . . . next." They clarified by pointing out he died from natural causes and all the snakes were in crates.
  • The Star-Telegram had a story on a young meth addict. I think I spotted one of the problems to her recovery plan . . . 
  • I saw the movie Concussion over thew weekend. It was good but not great. There's something about feature films that aren't true documentaries that cause me to question too many aspects of them. We Are Marshall comes to mind.
  • Anyone seen Walter White of Breaking Bad lately? . . . 
    (Actual photo from the scene)
  • "Five family members, including a 2-year-old girl, were found dead in their home in Pennsylvania in what authorities are describing as an apparent murder-suicide." The family was featured in a July 2015 story in the New York Times.
  • Remember when an Evel Knievel jump would make news? Nowadays his son can jump 18 Corvettes at a Clay Cooley dealership and no one even notices. (That link takes you to a KXAS video of the jump but the brain trust over there thinks it is a good idea to put a 30 second commercial in front of 24 second clip.)
  • A-Rod announced his retirement from the Yankees yesterday. The Rangers, who he hasn't played for since 2004, still owe him $40 million?
  • "Child's death at Kansas Schlitterbahn water park investigated . . . . The boy died while riding the Verr├╝ckt, the world's tallest water slide."

You don't have to close your eyes to get the munchkin effect. I heard a soundbite this morning on the Ticket of either Simone Biles or Gabby (what's her last name? Hayes?), and I thought "Their hormones are so suppressed they ALL sound like eight year old girls."

If Robbie had snagged one of them Pokeymans in the middle of his jump, or taken a selfie, you can bet that would have got lots of attention!

So do you. Booyah!


No wait, you sound like Gordon Keith doing his gay impersonation of Al Gore.

I am confused yet intrigued by today's RTG.
She has a cartoonish appearance with a nice body.

I'm no bicycle engineer, but I think the Dutch cyclist should invest in some anti-lock brakes.

Well, yeah. It's radio, goofy. Of course you don't have to close your eyes. In fact, considering that most people listen to the radio while driving, I really hope you didn't even try.

My family had the same conversation about the munchkins, I mean gymnasts. One of my children asked if all gymnasts had to be little people.

If the meth user's parents have done a 12-step program, they aren't working one now. Can you spell enablers?

40 million to A-Rod? Aren't those the same Rangers that want taxpayers to pay 500 million for a new stadium? Geez.

Hillary is a fine representative specimen of today's legal "profession". Neurotic, envious, vengeful and completely void of any human empathy. Wow..if you people are stupid enough to vote for her you truly are uninformed, weak and must have codependent tendencies.

We get it. All crime should be allowed.

What? Nothing about the internet explosion of pics showing Hilary needing help to navigate a small set of steps into a home? She's completely unfit to serve as POTUS and she's the best you liberal weenies could do......... The woman is not well and completely pathetic!

In other news your fearless leader has golfed his 300th round of golf since taking office.

SPEAKS VOLUMES DOESN'T IT?

Golfing good. Tweeting bad.

I wish the taxpayers would pick up my tab to be flown to play golf every 9 days.

@3:16. Still less time than george w. Spent at his fake ranch by far.

4:37 - What is a "fake" ranch? And are you available to assess my real estate? I want to make sure I don't have a fake barn or anything.

Try to navigate from your Daily Kos or Huffington Post and go to a real news site. You can't miss it!

"It's radio"
Thanks for pointing out the obvious, chief. Too bad you weren't around to tell me that earlier. I wouldn't be facing charges now for running a Dutch bicyclist off the road!

I saw Walter White of Breaking Bad at the DNC. I had no idea he was a liberal weenie. I lost all respect for him.

4:37, George W at least did some work at his ranch. I bet Obammy doesn't do anything on the golf course except waste taxpayer's money.

Read the whole story on the meth head ! Amazing that the shot in the head didn't damage her brain at all apparently ! What on earth is the world coming to when a person that looks like that can sell herself . NOT ! A pretty woman ! Think how desperate a person would have to be to bed that !

4:37 Don't pick on Bush; at least he's a man with morals & ethics.

Guinjames said...

8:02 what planet are you on? How many houses have basements in Texas moron. We ain't in kansas toto. And has there been one report of bush "goin to the ranch" since leaving office?

Anonymous said...

Guinjames, they don't report on the movements of ex presidents unless there is some news value there. Having said that, Bush himself has said he splits his time between Dallas and Crawford.

Oh....because we all know you are in Texas! The Internet stops at the border apparently in your world!!! Well, whatever part of your mom's house you decide to enlighten us from, keep up the good work...we all need the daily chuckle!

Guinjames said...

9:59. Oh bush himself said he splits his time. Not a good recommendation because there has never been any problems with what bush himself said. WMD's come to mind. Leave my mother out of it or I'll quit visiting yours.

Anonymous said...

GJ, Hillary Clinton read the same intelligence reports on WMD's and came to the same conclusion as Bushie! When you are done visiting my mom you might consider therapy for your necrophilia.

Guinjames said...

It's interesting that anything that happened during Obama admin. is Obamas fault but anything that happened on bush's watch is everbodies fault.

12:28 you must have what Hillary has. Easily confused syndrome

Gj, you aren't a very good listener are you. Obama has blamed everything on Bush since day one. Besides I wasn't blaming Hillary for the Iraq war, that was all Bush, but like him she thought they existed. Obama is just Bush 2.0 with some added social interventions that have divided us even more.

Guinjames said...

Make America Great Again because Jim Crow was great, poll tax was great, segragation was great. Depends a great deal on what is greatness in your mind. Lets take the vote away from women again and away from anyone who is not a land owner. I get the fun wordy gets out of listening to heads explode.

Anonymous said...

Funny GJ, nobody is talking about those things you mention and very few educated people are defending Trump. I have not once heard someone advocate to bring back Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, segregation or to reverse suffrage! We only point out the failings of modern liberal ideology in regards to racial relations and social policy that was supposed to deliver equality and unite the masses.

You point out our complex racial history as if conservatives are solely responsible for it, which is a lie. You and your family are just as responsible as anyone else in this country, maybe even more so if you continue to support failed social policies that don't take into account human nature in their attempts to create equality. Supporting these policies makes you a modern day slave owner....you want the minority vote, you are willing to pay for it so long as they retreat back to the ghetto until the next election. In the meantime their lives only get worse as a direct result of the poverty loop created by liberals. Chew on that before YOUR head explodes from the massive amounts of truth entering it!! Have fun basement boy!
