The Campaign For DA

8.04.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • Easiest way to get stopped for speeding in Wise County: (1) Be southbound on 287 with either Colorado plates or with plates from deep south states, (2) Be running around FM 718 or FM 51 in the south part of the county after midnight.
  • New last week down by Austin way was that a deputy might have been ambushed and killed and/or was robbed. Now it looks like he may have shot himself.
  • "Murder Trial Begins For Slayer of Richardson Gay Pornographer". That story is insane. (The bad news is that the link takes you to the Dallas Observer which means your browser will probably ground to a halt.") The link was to Day #1 of the trial. Here is the link for yesterday's Day #2.
  • It's technically a "perq of the job" and not "perk of the job"? I had no idea. 
  • Heard at the courthouse two days ago: "I'm against school uniforms. I think people should be able to flaunt their wealth." The response of those around him: "You feeling OK this morning, buddy?"
  • Las Vegas over/under season wins for Big 12: Baylor at 9, TCU at 8.5, Oklahoma at 10. Texas at 8, Tech at 6.5. (Aggie -- which I still can't believe is in the SEC -- comes in at 8.)
  • It's been over a month since the SMU officer was reportedly swept into Turkey Creek.
  • The High School Graduate Soon To Be Kicked Out Of The House wants to do her own guest edition of Random Thoughts.  Me: "Have you ever read the blog?" Her: "Not a word." Me: "Knock yourself out."
  • The Dallas DA has worked a little over two months this year.
  • Note to Texas deputies: Don't get all liquored up and go shoot your gun off around a church while shirtless. (By the way, if you watch the video, you'll see a DA who overacts for the camera like a professional wrestler. But the arresting agency wasn't exactly thinking when they provided Fox 4 with a photo of a blank wall in response to the news organization's request for a book in photo.)
  • "They don't write good, they don't know how to write good." - Donald Trump to Sean Hannity regarding his opinion of the New York Times
  • Texas times the holding of two a days for football and band perfectly . . . 
  • WBAP's Brian Estridge is advertising a real estate investment trust named, in an Idiocracy sort of way, as "Rich Uncles". Estridge casually tells us it is a "Reg A, Tier 2" trust. Quick, Brian, since you want that organization to manage our hard earned money, tell us what that means. 
  • The President granted commuted the sentence of two Boyd men yesterday. I just saw the news and quickly googled one of the names. I'm so interested.
  • "Don't go there!" - Zachary Thompson, the head of Dallas County Health and Human Services last night on Fox 4 News on how people should handle travel to Miami in light of Zika.  That sounds like calm, thoughtful and rational advise.

Hey, Bubbas. Mark it down. Hillary will win Texas. You heard it here first. (Three ... two ... one ...)

I finally figured out the missing SMU guy--Wrong Turkey Creek--I haven't seen a single rescue boat in Bridgeport park. Roll out the mobile command unit.

Everyone needs to read the story of Joe Jackson...I lived around Boyd at the time and knew the family.

"Don't go there" sounds similar to "Just say no." What was the liberal reaction to that "... calm, thoughtful and rational advise (sic)."?

"Perk" is a generally accepted abbreviation for perquisite.

It must be nice to be a drunk white cop with a gun in Ellis county.

Read the story of Dickey Joe Jackson written in Salon before President Obama commuted his three life sentences for transported Meth from California to Texas to pay for a life saving transplant for his son! A mistake but no violence. Our justice system needs reform. Murderers in Wise County have received less severe sentences than this drug offense.

Frisco ISD's Independence marching band is currently holding three-a-days, from 8-8. That's a long day.

RE: Perk vs. Perq

The folks at Merriam-Webster are on the PERK side of the argument.

PERQ is not listed as a word.

I'm surprised you haven't posted about WFAA's story about Craig Watkins. Very interesting just from the standpoint that the body cam video quality of the officers is really good.

Turkey Creek?

No, speeding is the easiest way to get stopped for speeding. Thousands of vehicles with non-Texas tags pass merrily along 287 each day in front of and alongside law enforcement and do not get pulled over for speeding.

I think life in prison was way too much penalty for the Jacksons..no matter the reason they had to attain the money. But 20 years for being responsible for the drugs they put on the streets, which destroyed many families, was not so bad. Hope they have family to help them rehabilitate themselves back into this filthy real world..it hasn't changed much..still drugs on the streets.

Barry, your link to the possible suicide goes to the drunken police officer.

RTG is a repeat from about two or three years ago. Trust me. I save your better RTG pics to my iPhone, and this is definitely one of them.

I don't know about the band, but most schools' football teams practice early and no longer do "two a-days". They are finished with workouts by the heat of the day.

Breaking Liberally Lean News - The handwriting is on the wall. Just saw an announcement of the going-away party for Dr. Matt Joiner, leader of WCWC. I suppose he has had his fill of Weatherford College games. He was always a good guy and honestly working for the people of Wise to have a great college campus. And now he is going to another college to do those good works. Who will Weatherford put in his place? Maybe time to talk to North Central Texas College about picking up the pieces? Wise County – NCTC sounds good.

Hey Barry, did you see the Official LL Girl on Jimmy Kimmel last night?

It's not Turkey Creek. It's Perky Creek.

"Perk" is an example of a word spelled incorrectly for so long that it became acceptable, and it's now the preferred spelling.

It's not perky creek...its PERQY CREEK

Why is it most conservatives I know are pro school uniforms? I thought conservative was less government in our lives?

I bet if the Dallas DA was out fighting cancer, how many days she worked wouldn't be an issue. Mental Illness just like cancer must be treated.

Runaway Bay used to be a place not to speed or be out late ? Do they still have police?

Anonymous said...

The drunk policeman needs to wear a bra before his hooters drop any more!

A 23 year old got forty years for drugs this year in Wise County !
Another young man got forty for murder and arson when he should been credited with 200 hours of community service in case he ever really did anything wrong ! POS he killed !!!

Looks like Wiki leaks has information linking Hillary to Isis. It seems she helped steer weapons to the Islamic radicals. Hillary Clinton is a traitorous bitch. This is the best you libs can do?

I was returning from Ruidoso after the 4th of July weekend. A Hispanic male in a pick up passed us coming into Runaway Bay.

He was stopped by the local cops, so yes, they do exist.

Alvord will start next week at 3:30-7pm. That's right smack dab in the heat of the day. Should be outlawed but what do I know :0)

I sent you the article about Joe Jackson months ago you didn't seem interested then. Yes he deserves a pardon his family has suffered so. His son is still very ill and hospitalized at this time. They need Joe.

Allow me to unface palm... If you have Colorado plates or really if the dps stormtroopers just get the urge they WILL make up a number (over the speed limit)and pull you over but yeah- especially if you have Colorado plates.
