The Campaign For DA

8.17.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • She could be the official sweetheart of the new Lake Bridgeport Kayak Fishing Gang that I'm thinking about forming (and being the president and general manager of.)
  • Evan McMullin has sued Texas to get on the ballot as an Independent presidential candidate.“There’s just so many restrictions on ballot access in Texas, and Texas is generally a very open and independent and free-thinking kind of place.”
  • "I've never done anything illegal, immoral, unethical." - Art Briles yesterday at the Houston Texans training camp. Raise you hand out there if you can say that. He might want to throttle it back a bit.  
  • "Houston police officer charged with intoxication manslaughter in fatal Fort Bend crash"
  • Donald Trump had a campaign shakeup last night. He hired Stephen Bannon, the co-founder of conservative Breitbart News, as campaign CEO. I pray my life never sinks so low that I have to turn to Breitbart to save me. But the good news is that Trump is about to ramp up the craziness.
  • Think government doesn't contribute to the local economy? There are thirty-one new teacher hires in Decatur ISD alone. Name another company which hired 31 people in Decatur for the fiscal year.
  • The Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes now have a new name for the stadium they will play in: Hard Rock Stadium.
  • What exactly was it that caused Trump's demise? It was really closing there for a while. I'm not sure it wasn't the GOP convention where he paraded his family up there. They all came across as they fraternity/sorority kid who wouldn't give you the time of day. Whatever it was, something happened.
  • El Chapo's son was kidnapped from an upscale restaurant in Puerto Vallarta.  I read a beyond fantastic article the other day about how El Chapo's incarceration has led to Cartel Chaos in Mexico and things were much more stable when he was running the show.  (Which causes some to believe his first "escape" was orchestrated by the Mexican government so he could get the situation under control.)
  • The odds on favorite to become the leading cartel in Mexico is the Jalisco New Generation Cartel -- the group that used to be the "muscle" for El Chapo's cartel. 
  • That same article said that the current scramble for money and territory and control in Mexico's drug landscape is fueled, ironically, in part by the U.S.'s legalization of marijuana in some states. With marijuana no longer a profit center in Mexico, they have changed their focus to manufacturing opioids -- and America is addicted to opioids. Moreover, in Mexico they have focused on: Fentanyl. Look at this 
  • I hope Tim O'Hare (famous for his Draconian and illegal actions against illegal immigrants while mayor at Flower Mound Farmer's Branch) is a better party head for the Tarrant County GOP than he is a fill-in talk show host for Mark Davis. Davis has to fear sometimes whether he will still have a show when he gets back.
  • "Facebook is eat up with people who don't know what they are talking about." - WBAP's Hal Jay this morning.

Barry's comments about teacher hiring speaks to his confusion between private and public investment. This is a huge hurdle for leftist to overcome.

question for clarity, were they additional teachers hired or replacement teachers hired? I'd guess a mix of the two.

I believe Tim O'Hare was mayor of Carrolton, not Flower Mound.

Tim O'Hare is formerly of Farmers Branch, not Flower Mound.

I realize you're completely tainted from your liberal mindset, but do you not realize those 31 teachers and every other government employee across the nation are funded completely by taxpayers. The spending by individuals props up our frail economy, not the spending of taxpayer $ by government. The government does not contribute a single $ to this economy but instead serves as a gigantic, out-of-control spending machine and huge liability on individual taxpayer wealth.

Think government doesn't contribute to the local economy?


Correct, they do not. The government taxes the crap out of the middle class. Part of that money is needed and used for teachers. They give themselves raises with the rest.

The money did not come from the government, you idiot. It came from you and me and everyone else that works and gets taxed for every single thing they obtain.

Jalisco New Generation Cartel:
nice to see the kids getting motivated and trying to get ahead in the world!

Wonder if Art Briles has ever heard the old saying "Never say never."
Not the correct context, but it's still applicable here.

"Facebook is eat up with people who don't know what they are talking about."
You could replace the word Facebook with any social media platform, or politics, talk radio, entertainment industry, or humankind in general. - the interwebs's Triple Fake this morning

I see some other commenters have already caught that. This kind of thinking proves that Barry is too far gone. We are wasting our time trying to reason with him. How can anyone reason with that kind of blindness?

Yes, Obama has seen to adding to the huge government workers machine...the only people who don't have to worry about losing their jobs, with benefits. It's what drives this country. Only the top very small percentage in business for themselves do the rest. Everyone else is really struggling or living on welfare. It's the way the government likes it...keep the majority on their faces so they have control.

Re: 31 Hires - Every ISD in WC and elsewhere has churn. You lose a bunch of teachers and hire new ones to replace them. Unless there is a significant enrollment increase for DISD, then those 31 were probably all replacing departures.

BTW, the Decatur Wal Mart hires more than 31 employees a year. Probably Lowes as well. And for the same reasons above.

Trump's decline in the polls began immediately after Sanders's flame was officially extinguished and Hillary got her nomination. The media's canonization of Hillary began that day. (And you can't have an angel without a devil, so Trump.)

I am a proud Democrat. I support public education, free college tuition, national health care, open borders, immigration of people of color, affirmative action, abortion on demand, welfare, the banning of all firearms, a nuclear moratorium, public transportation, alternative energy, and a different form of government. It goes without saying I am for equality. So-called free speech? Not so much. The Constitution is an archaic document that no longer covers the intricacies of modern life. A new, fairer, form of government is on its way. Political parties must be monitored and regulated by the state. The United Nations is the logical world government overseer and personally, I welcome its international policies and leadership into the United States.

Opposition to government and party policies should be dealt with in an appropriate manner. Simply put, those who oppose logic and reason (like Republicans) should not be given a platform from which to make their ridiculous proclamations. Dissenters and threats from criminal mentality will be dealt with accordingly.

We should love our leaders and our government and support them in their efforts.

We're almost there. The world is already a better place but there is still plenty of work to be done. With that said, vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016! She's the only one who can save us.

Trump is like a child molester and is too rich to be president.

Good God. More "but Clinton" out of Wordkyle.

I mean, let's not blame Trump for his constant flubs and gaffes like questioning the audacity of a family who gave a son to this country's wars, saying that women should just change jobs of harassed, continuing to double down on race issues that alienate virtually every Hispanic voter, having national security experts and (gasp) even major members of the party that he now leads say that he is not fit to be president or have the nuclear codes, ridicule the handicapped, etc.

Those things are not Clinton's doing, you complete and utter fool.

1234 - You had some good points without the insults. Trump does indeed say and do stupid things. In a presidential election, those things will get attention. However, BG posted about polls. Polls are influenced by media coverage. That media coverage, since Hillary's coronation, has been overwhelmingly positive for her and negative for Trump.

While Trump was saying and doing stupid things,
- Hillary was revealed to be both negligent and incompetent in her handling of classified government information. That information was likely hacked from her private server.
- Hillary was revealed to have lied repeatedly about the e-mails, changing her lies as new evidence came out.
- Hillary blatantly told the public that FBI Director Comey did not say what he said (which was basically that she was negligent and incompetent.) Her standard "Are you gonna believe me or your lying eyes?" defense.
- New information reveals the cozy relationship between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary's State department. This is in addition to the obvious quid pro quo funneled through Bill Clinton's speechmaking earnings.

Now, then. The media, which controls the flow of information that influences polls, created a bigger national conversation about various Trump gaffes than they did Hillary Clinton's much more serious transgressions. It's not a "but Clinton," it's a "Clinton is incompetent, negligent, dishonest, and possibly a traitor. Where's that news coverage?"

Are we clear?

Goober said...

Two thoughts here:
1) the RTG reminds me of that old country song with the refrain,"I like my women just a little on the trashy side";

2) listening to Hal Jay reminds me of listening to my four year old nephew. The only difference is the four year old sometimes maks sense with his comments and doesn't take himself anywhere near serious.

Triple Fake... said...

you can tell 12:20 is either yanking our collective chain, or is totally deluded. He claims to be for equality, but gives none to members of an opposition party (the dissenters). And I'm not sure what to make of "dealt with accordingly". Ominous!
What happens if open borders and immigration bring in enough people to cause his party to lose an election?

Then he says "Political parties must be monitored and regulated by the state." The state is run by a political party. Sounds like the crazies will be running the asylum.
I was a little surprised he didn't sign off as DF Stalin
