The Campaign For DA

8.30.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • According to Fox 4, Crimestoppers is offering a reward for vandals who damaged football fields in Chico, Alvord, and Paradise two weeks ago. Are we just now hearing about it? (And, finally, we actually hear about Wise County Crimestoppers possibly paying money.) 
  • Number of Zika cases tracked back to Olympics: 0. Number of people diagnosed with the disease in Tarrant County: 17.
  • I've never seen Willy Wonka.
  • Opponents of my Bad-Movie-No-Electricity Theory hit me with: Silverado, Glory, Tombstone, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Shakespere in Love, Elizabeth, Dances With Wolves, Unforegiven, The Piano, Last of the Mohicans, Amadeus, The Princess Bride, and Dangerous Liasons.  I'm thinking about Last of the Mohicans. The rest I shall reject in that they are consistent with my well reasoned theory.
  • Other than alt-right rants, the mainstream on Monday didn't seem to care about the Kaepernick protest. That was refreshing. 
  • But Rick Perry had an odd take on the Kaepernick situation on Fox and Friends this morning. "The reason that I wear this U.S. flag lapel pin is that I want to stand with our men and women of law enforcement."  That's really weird logic. If someone doesn't want to stand because of x (bad cops) that doesn't mean condemn him because you support something different (not bad cops.)
  • And I shouldn't have turned over to Fox and Friends because I was subjected to the very relevant Larry the Cable Guy. It's like that network is stuck in 1995. 
  • I forgot to mention that Trump's doctor looks like a Simpsons' character.
  • When I watch that American Ninja gal (I don't know her name), I wonder why she couldn't find one Olympic event to compete in.
  • Rick Perry will join Dancing With The Stars. Delicious. I'm looking forward to the behind-the-scenes interview with him because he rarely speaks unless the environment is controlled. (And when he was forced to, he would screw it up -- i.e. "oops" or speaking when high on pain medication.)
  • I'm not sure I've ever heard of the buy-every-paper-off-the-newsstand trick (as reported by the Update yesterday) executed in real life.
  • Brookhaven Community College had a mountain lion scare yesterday but me, even being a wildlife idiot, could have tolk you it wasn't a mountain lion. 
  • UT coach Charlie Strong still hasn't named a starting quarterback. If he trots Swoopes out there for the first player, UT might fire Strong before the first series of downs is over. 
  • I had never heard of Juan Gabriel . . .

Barry this is not April fools day; Rick Perry can't be on Dancing with the Stars and that long haired guy in a white coat can't be the Republican party nominee's doctor! I can't take anymore of this crazy stuff!

Carlos Danger will be on Dancing with the Stars also. I wonder if Kapernick will protest income inequality also by refusing his paycheck?

9:04 forgets that it's Congress that handles the money. Speaks volumes about them, doesn't it?

I believe you are out of touch with the Kapernick situation....

The mainstream middle is disgusted with what he did. Sure he has the right to protest in this situation.... but he crossed a line by making it against the whole country. His career will pay... and he will keep his girlfriend since she is behind it.


It was aligned with BLM... a misguided group that uses pieces of facts to attempt to move the needle.

Can you give a citation for the proposition that NO ONE contracted Zika while attending the Olympics?
And, I guarantee you that no one contracted the disease in Tarrant from a mosquito bite that happened in Tarrant.

Regarding Gabriel....because you are a tacist.

Your well-reasoned movie theory isn't logical at all. The year of release is arbitrary, evidenced by your haste to amend it for Braveheart. And GWTW was your original exception. Really?! It was episodic and melodramatic. You couldn't think of one movie better than that?
Your oddly worded condition of "does not depict electricity being used" is vague. The assumption is any film depicting a time frame pre-20th century. But it could also include alternate realities sans electricity, post-apocalyptic futures, or modern remote locations - desert, jungle, the frozen tundra of...well, not Lambeau Field, but some other place with frozen tundra and no electrical power

I disagree with your Bad movie-no electricity theory. Several good movies in your list dude. Oh wait a minute...you've never seen Willy Wonka? How is that possible? That explains your lack of appreciation for great films.

Baahahahahaha Wordy! Yeah, people on the right NEVER copy the jargon they hear on Fox News. You're so predictable. Calling people out for the very things you do.

Why can't both sides see that they are just as ridiculous as the other.

I'm white mainstream middle, and I'm totally fine with what he's doing. I even served to protect his right to do it.

We either take that service and those rights seriously, or we don't.

You apparently don't.

I suspect your description of who you are is incomplete. I'm not sure if 'redneck' goes after white or mainstream, but it should be in there somewhere.

You should have been at Baylor in 1989 (I think). The NoZe brothers stole the masthead for the Lariat, printed up the Rope with it, and replaced every paper on campus with their fake Lariat. It was pretty damn good, since they printed a fake obituary for Herb Reynolds on the front page.

Wasn't until you got to the ads for the nudie bars that you really knew something was up.

the very relevant Larry the Cable Guy?

Barry, you may be one of the most dishonest people I've seen on blogs. Your comments are based on his comments this morning on Fox and Friends. He said Hillary would destroy this country. That's what your problem is with Larry.
He was irrelevant to the tune of $13MM last year. That is only his personal earnings and endorsements. He has other business interests in companies that are not included in that figure. He has an estimated net worth of $50MM.

Barry, your disgust for anything or anyone that is conservative is so transparent. You and other liberals like you are the reason we can't have an honest political discussion in this country anymore.

Kapernick will probably suffer a career ending injury this season. I will be watching the games so I can see it happen.

The reason Kaepernick's protest is idiotic, offensive and why he should be fined by the league is simple: America has always worked to right its wrongs on racial inequality to the degree of no other nation on this planet. We have fought wars, marched in the street, battled in Congress and the courts in almost ever year since our country emancipated the slaves. Countless lives have been lost or forever changed so Mr Kaepernick can be afforded the opportunity to live the life he does! And while I will defend his right to protest in the manner he chooses I'll also point out how poorly he understands his own history, and that his inflammatory actions and speech are not free in regards to his employment, he should remember that and fight for social justice on his own time and dime!

I for one am proud of our history of stamping out racism and I realize we still have a long way to go, for God's sakes we nominated Trump, but we are still the world leader in equality. There is some merit to his protest, I'll grant him that, but man did he ever go about it all wrong!

I'm sorry, did you just cite marching in the street, which was a form of dissent, as a reason why Koepernick should not voice and display his dissent?

Damn you dumb.

If not for people expressing their dissent, there would still be slavery, or segregation, or Jim Crow laws, etc.

You seriously need to work on your logic.

The folks marching in the street aren't using their employment as the platform to display their dissent. They did it on their own time. If my employees want to march outside of work for their causes, I'm totally fine with it, but bring it in to the office and we got a big problem! Fairly simple line of distinction. I also clearly stated that I support his right to protest as a constitutionally protected freedom, and only took issue with his outlet. But I guess you glossed over that in your weak minded attempt to be a cute little liberal.

My entire post is in support of how we ended slavery and fought racist policies so maybe you are the one who should work on your logic, or maybe just start with reading comprehension! Your outmatched son, walk away while you can!!!
