The Campaign For DA

8.23.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • I came across Lone Star Law on the Animal Planet Channel. It was basically Texas Game Wardens acting like Seal Team Six when they arrest someone for shooting from the road.
  • Any show produced for Animal Planet, National Geographic, Travel Channel etc. seems like 55% content and 45% commercials. 
  • "The 17-1 Boyd Lady Yellowjackets entered the TGCA’s 3A volleyball poll at No. 8." Wait a second. School started today in Boyd but they've already had 18 matches?
  • Great line from the documentary Dark Web on the War on Drugs: "It's like the cat and mouse game. The mice will eventually win but the cat will be well fed along the way."
  • The Waco DA's office takes another hit. The office was responsible for the prosecution of four men for rape and murder -- men who a judge has declared  "actually innocent" of crimes that cost them all twenty years of their lives. Current McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna opposed the men's quest for exoneration.
  • Texas, as it must, has always said that it doesn't have "Debtor's Prisons". Nothing has confused me more because people "sit out" their fines every day in county jails in Texas because they can't pay them. This is 100% unconstitutional. However, nothing is ever done about it because a few days in jail resolves "the problem" and those people don't have the money (obviously) to fight it. Every now and then a lawsuit occurs
  • Along those same lines, the Justice Department is now targeting the crazy concept of "if you are too poor to afford bail, tough luck."
  • I woke up this morning bright and early and turned on The Ticket. They were talking about how "weird" it is that the body of the SMU police officer has never been found after he reportedly swept into Turtle Creek. 
  • I can truly say that I cannot conceivable care less: 
  • Eight TWU volleyballers have been diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis. I've got my Pulitzer Radar out again: Something is fishy. 
  • Dez Bryant suffered a concussion?
  • I will always be fascinated by Todd Marinovich, 47, who was once the subject of an ESPN 30 for 30 and who was found yesterday naked and allegedly in possession of meth.
  • Raising money or not, Trump hanging out in Texas within weeks before the election is plain dumb. (Unless his goal is now not to win but to make money off the campaign -- which might very well now be true.)

North Woods Law is the same as the Texas Game warden Show, just in Maine. They are much worse than the Texas game Wardens when it come to writing tickets...I have never seen them give a warning for anything.

The Clinton Foundation/Clinton Global Initiative does incredible work especially in third world countries. Republicans want to shut it down just to poke Hillary.

Hillary implemented Obama's foreign policy not hers. No evidence Obama altered a single policy after someone contributed to Clinton's Foundations.

But speaking of influence, not quite ready to have my president in debt to Bank of China, Russian oligarchs (read Putin's cronies) and Duetche Bank (the poster child for tax avoidance schemes)

Trump has no interest in winning. This has became a money making enterprise. He is building interest for an alt-right (anti-conservative) media empire. He and his buddies are trying to purge the Republican party of Reagan/Goldwater conservatives.

A game warden is one of the most dangerous LE jobs out there.
Everyone you come into contact in the field is armed. And poachers are often crazy ass people as it is.

You are dumb.

Well the gubment keeps bringing in poor ass criminals.
It seems logical to me unless you want them running the streets lawlessly.

You are always fascinated by celebrities and semi-celebrities who fall from grace due to drug abuse.

Do you honestly think if drugs were legal that these people would not fall into the same circumstances?

I think that you want to see more people fall into those circumstances. It is a weird fascination you have.

In other news the State Department issued an updated travel warning on Monday for Americans on the risks of travel to Iran. Good thing we signed a nuclear deal and made a $400 million cash payment to them.

Taxpayer money well spent.

The alternative is not to issue fines upon conviction but just put people in jail from the beginning and no probation. Is that what you are advocating? You blur the line from the traditional "debtor's prison". You can't be put in jail for running up a credit card and then not being able to pay it. You can be put in jail for robbing a bank but sometime you are allowed to stay out of jail if you just promise to work, pay your bills and not commit new offenses. Kind of like what regular people do every day. But most can't or won't do that so you just have to put them in jail like what should have been done from the beginning.

I have no doubt there is a large percentage of innocent people in prison because they had no money for bail and had to take a state attorney...this should not be happening.

I can't believe the comments on this blog.

Another way to afford bail is to not commit a crime that gets you arrested. Then your bail cost is zero.

Thinking Trump will be paid lots of money for destroying the Republican party! He and his New York Jewish friends are friends of Bill Clinton. Google up who put up the first money for Trump campaign and who paid the millions on Trumps behalf to the veterans! Trump doesn't want to move into the white house, he wants his own network and expand his brand name! He is all about money!

853 - 1) E-mails revealed that Clinton Foundation donors -- including foreign governments -- had a direct line to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 2) If there were no problems with Clinton Foundation corruption, why did Clinton promise to "revise" donor rules if she wins the White House?

HRC touts her time as SoS as a resume point. Her actions during that time therefore deserve scrutiny. If she was simply a gofer for Obama as you suggest, then she certainly didn't display any leadership ability. If she was an active agent in policy, then she deserves blame for failures.

Why is there no link to 'rhabdomyolysis', a word every reader will have to google?

I can't wait to see comments on today's sexpot...two 'kitties' in one photo.

There's one of those sit-out-your-time folks in our neck of the woods. It gives her AC, food, and housing for a while. She has no intention of not breaking the law again, nor of getting a job, nor of following the rules for housing assistance. So...when she gets kicked out (again...probably 25 places over the years), she continues to scam the system. #NoSympathy

@8:53 you are truly a moron of the highest calibre if you actually believe that the Clinton Foundation has not relied on HRC's pay to play strategy while in public office.

It is a dirty organization built on unethical, immoral, and illegal principles.

Idiot.

Yes, they'll do it legal or not and the criminal factor makes it special to some, like their own rebellion, and the black market makes it profitable. Legalize and regulate is the answer unfortunately

You do know we owed them the money don't you? And you do believe in seeking nuclear peace don't you? Not sure what reaction you're after here but looks like our govt is doing its job and not yours which speaks volumes for your insight. In case you're not aware there is a war going on, travellers in the area should be advised

"Rhabdomyolysis and its complications are significant problems for those injured in disasters such as earthquakes and bombings. Relief efforts in areas struck by earthquakes often include medical teams with the skills and equipment to treat survivors with rhabdomyolysis. The disease was first described in the 20th century, and important discoveries as to its mechanism were made during the Blitz of London in 1941.[5] Horses may also develop rhabdomyolysis from a variety of causes."

I'm not saying... I'm just sayin'...

You are sidestepping the facts. Name a foreign policy reversal on Obamas part after contribution to Clinton foundation! SCOTUS recently overturned McDonald conviction because ther was no evidence despite gifts he acted or intervened.

Trumps ties to Putins are documented facts not to mention from his own mouth

Wordie shoul me thankful for Hillary as he will have reason to live for some time!

10:54, If we owed them money, why did it get paid exactly the same time as the hostages were released and you would think Obammy would announce it to the world to show how compassionate he was towards Muslims instead of in an unmarked CIA plane in the middle of the night.

214 - You're being very specific as to what might be considered unacceptable ("corrupt") with the Clinton Foundation. From the NY Times story titled "Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal" (apologies for the length, but it's complicated):

"...the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"As the Russians gradually assumed control, Canadian records show a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. (To the tune of $2.35 million.) Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons...

"And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock."


Hillary Clinton is already compromised. To make her president is madness.

Repubs have all turned into conspiracy theorist these days. Every single one I know, including you jackasses on here, have these crazy conspiracy theories about Hillary. I think you give people way too much credit. You want to fix things? Start with education, and make sure you keep tabs on those dumbasses talking about Adam and Eve, and Noah's Ark. I think if you fix all the Easter Bunny shit (religion), then maybe you'd start to make some headway on some of this stuff. Or...keep praying and let's see how it works out. So dumb.

Now the game wardens have to be eliminated, too? OK, I agree, people should be allowed to just shoot whatever they want from the road. Houses, animals, people in yards...whatever. Just kill anything you want. Evil, evil police are always getting in the way of innocent killers.

417,

Fix education? OK, let us start with what you wrote. That is the most poorly thought out and written paragraph I have seen in a while.

Please go to your local continuing education center, for remediation.

There. At least that is a start.
