The Campaign For DA

8.02.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • The pilot in the hot air balloon crash which killed 16 had two dogs named Zappa and Joplin.
  • Yesterday I had the earworm of "And your lips taste like sangria" all day long. By the afternoon I was still it hearing it so I just gave up by longingly looking off into the distance with my head slightly cocked. 
  • The American Sniper widow has now been hired by Fox News. Exactly what does she have to contribute?
  • There's some SuperPAC which advertises on Fox News asking you to dial a number and push 1 to support Trump and 2 to basically support "crooked" Hillary. It's obviously designed to suck in Bubba, but how exactly do they make money? That has to be what they are after.
  • I said "kill me!" . . . 
  • In case you missed it: Trump eats his chicken with a fork?
  • In reacting to gun violence, Apple will replace the gun emoji with a water gun emoji in its next operating system update.

  • I have a far greater chance of dying by listening to a Jason Garrett press conference than I do from Zika. 
  • I heard on the radio Sean Hannity doing an ad for a DFW real estate firm. How much do you think you would have to pay Hannity to do a 30 second spot for you? My wild guess is $10,000 but that may be way off. 
  • Based upon Twitter and the activity on the court's website, it looks like the Texas Supreme Court is on a seven to eight week vacation. (Judge Jeff Boyd, for example, is in San Francisco and joked about being on a boat he couldn't afford since he has only a "state's salary". He makes $168,000 + insurance + pension + seminar speaking fees + perks.)
  • Beginning of an opinion piece today in the Star-Telegram on the insane "surcharge" program levied against drivers in Texas: "Every day, nearly 1,800 Texans are entered into a registry with the sole intention of collecting money — highway robbery by your state government.After more than a decade, we can no longer sit idly by while the state’s Driver Responsibility Program ruins lives and ensnares Texans in a debtors’ prison. It’s time to end the DRP." True that. 
  • Bag of Nothing had a link which shows you when you registered with the Selective Service (I've written before regarding whether this is even required any longer. It is.) He registered within a week after turning 18. I registered within 10 days before I turned 20. The law is summarized on the website: A person "must register with the Selective Service System within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Late registrations are accepted, but not once a man reaches his 26th birthday." There doesn't appear to be a penalty for registering late but here are the penalties for not registering at all: "[A] felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or a prison term of up to five years, or a combination of both." [Editor's note: Good lord.] And more: "The more immediate penalty is if a man fails to register before turning 26 years old, even if he is not tried or prosecuted, he may find that some doors are permanently closed." [Editor's note: What the heck does that mean?]
  • Maybe I'm getting old, but I thought I would see a lot of Trump headlines using the the title The Wrath of Khan.

Make Russia great again......vote Trump!

Since women are equal and can serve in the infantry, are they required to register with the selective service? And if not, can my son refuse to register, challenging the law based on not being treated equal?

Turning 42 next month, and never registered with selective service. Don't even know what it's for, don't really care. I'm outlaw AF!!!!

Can't believe the DRP is still going on...thought they stopped it....there are thousands of people driving without a license or in debt due to this system. It's not helping anyone but the state's money bags.

"Permanently closed doors" probably refers to the fact that, if you don't register with Selective Service, you aren't eligible for federal student loans and many federal jobs.

It's refreshing to read a blog post in which Barry doesn't obsess over race. The mere absence seems to add depth of thought.

And what exactly is wrong with eating chicken with a fork ?

If I could get odds, I'd absolutely put down $100 right now that Trump will resign his candidacy rather than be stomped in the election. He is doing all Hillary's work right now. Picking trivial, "look how thin my skin is" fights with the grieving mom and dad of a fallen American soldier? REALLY? Calling Hillary the devil? Notice how EVERYONE is running from Trump right now.

Two comments:

First, the word is "perqs". Short for perquisites.

Second, if I were born male but decide that I am really female when I turn 18, do I still need to sign up for the draft?

Barry, the issues that you have with the "surcharge" and selective service may be justified, but you should be used to all forms of government stealing from the citizenry every day. Hell, your party authorizes all of this type of theft.

Permanent doors closed: can't qualify for student financial aid, federal job training programs, get hired for most government jobs, etc.

If I'm a Bubba because I can't support a criminal, then you are a Sissy because you do?

Fox News is just the polar opposite of all the other partisan news channels.
Like your blog is Liberal Democrat based, Bubba blogs (as you would term them) are Republican based.
I understand a Lawyer supporting a Liberal agenda, it's economics.
You probably support more criminal activities than a drug cartel in Mexico.
Then again, it's how you define, "living the dream"
When Hitlery becomes President (and she will) the Bubba's will just have to pay for you Liberals to live your dreams -I'm a middle aged white male (the most hated personage in this country) so I've been paying for most people "way's" my whole life.
Nothing new, as always Status Quo.
Thanks Democrats you are the ????

The "jealous much" person is just about as annoying as the "speaks volumes" clown. Come up with something different for once.

"And your lips taste like sangria"
Ironic much?
"Ma'am, your breath reeks of Iberian peninsular alcohol, and I'm detecting hints of orange and cherry. How much have you had to drink tonight? Step out of the car, please."

Trump does not eat chicken with a fork. You're just being silly now. He's about to dig into that gravy with his fork, because he can! The gravy is a loser and has no great consistency. How many jobs or magnificent structures has that gravy ever produced? So sad!
I think the bigger question is: Trump eats KFC?! The flight crew probably turns up their collective nose at that. Must have been a photo op for the blue collar crowd. I'm sure he pushed that aside for a Trump steak and lobster

My very first thought when Trump laid into the dad: "Khaaaaaaaannnnnnn!!!"

Hey "Jealous much" guy/girl -

Look up the difference between "jealous" and "envious." Going forward, apply that knowledge. That way, when you're making asinine comments, at least you won't look quite as ignorant.

Skippy, you gave up by longing looking off into the distance? Huh?

I eat chicken with a fork in public or with company.

Looks as if we have some first-timers here, based on all the grammar Nazism postings today. That's just how we roll here, perfessor. Deal with it, or you'll wear yourself out and annoy the crap out of everybody in the process.
I'll bet you spin like a top watching local TV. One morning last week I saw where Channel 5 teased an upcoming story with the headline: "Investigating nanny's". Then I switched over to Channel 11, and the weather forecast said "Sct'trd showers". They put the apostrophe between two letters where no letter had been removed. And this is from so-called professional journalists!
