The Campaign For DA

9.02.2016

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • We had a discussion at the courthouse the other day as to what were the origins of Labor Day. I said, "I bet it had a lot to do with catering to unions back in the day -- probably first half of the 1900s."  Our crack research staff told me I wasn't far off.
  • Nothing like starting off your day cleaning up cat throw up.
  • Hurry, build that wall! Those people are taking our jobs!:
  • That Florida hurricane was like most hurricanes: Not much to it. I bet hurricane news coverage is split 90% to 10% on pre-coverage vs. post-coverage.
  • I had Schlotzsky's for the first time in forever. Pretty, pretty good. 
  • Funny. (I think this is out of South Carolina): 
  • More Harambe comedy:
  • "AUSTIN — A week after Longhorns used sex toys to protest Texas' new campus carry law, a Frisco-based gun-rights activist has released a video that depicts the fictional shooting death of a young University of Texas student" who the same name as one of the protest organizers. Pushing it? Yep. But tap the brakes if your reaction to certain speech is to be offended and then your next knee jerk reaction is that criminalize that speech. 
  • Some wonder what retiring Dallas Police Chief Brown will do next, and many assume he'll go into politics. I don't think so. If he's smart, he tries to get a gig like that crazy David Clarke on Fox News. The only trouble is that Brown might be so reasonable that no network will want him. 
  • App State almost beat Tennessee last night. On the first week of broadcast of the obscure Big Ten Network a few years back, I stumbled upon live the crazy upset of App State over Michigan. I felt like I was the only person watching it on TV.
  • Baylor plays tonight. I fear a horrible year despite a ton of talent. There's a weird funk of depression hovering over that place. 
  • Northwest's high school quarterback is named Prince Mavula.  I picture him breaking the huddle wearing long flowing robes. 
  • Trump is up early this morning watching MSNBC: 
  • Things that the goofy Texas Supreme Court justice tweeted yesterday. (By my count, the Texas Supreme Court has been on a two month vacation):
  • Brock Turner, the Stanford student given six months in jail, was released this morning as reporters were standing by. ("Brock Tanner" sounds like something out of Boogie Nights.)

I didn't realize they had fruits and veggies that grew on the faces of buildings and had to be picked via scaffolding?????

I remember, I think, that you said once that the "speedo, tramp-stamp push mower guy" had passed away ... maybe his ghost was screwing with the guy doing the lines at Picket HS?

Skippy you didn't mention anything about the thousands and thousands of bar and restaurant jobs that Obammy created. I wouldn't have thought any of those jobs would be a shovel ready job.

"Those people are taking our jobs!" - A weak argument using unfortunate (for your argument) data. The unemployment rate by race for Texas at the end of 2015: Whites 3.6%, Blacks 7.6%, Hispanic 5.1%. If you want the best for minorities, who have a higher unemployment rate than whites, why do you encourage competition from other nations for jobs? If your answer is "Americans won't take those jobs," then you have expressed your opinion for the plight of the (minority) unemployed.

"That Florida hurricane was like most hurricanes: Not much to it." - Ten years ago, taking advantage of the furor over Katrina, climate scientists predicted that hurricanes would increase in frequency and severity because of global warming. Your ho-hum attitude about hurricanes reveals how that prediction worked out. Another instance of real-world evidence rebutting the manmade global warming alarmists.

Oh, and as for the crooked sideline: Great googly moogly.

Yea, a serial culture of rapist football players covered up by everyone in the University will do that to a Baptist college every time.

That new stadium will be lucky to have 5K in attendance in 2018.

Most of the Dallas PD doesn't support Brown ,that's why so many are leaving. No support from him.

Barry calling David Clark "crazy" is code for the n-word.

Thank you for following Trump so closely. I am with you Barry, he is the most interesting candidate ever. I sincerely hope we aren't stuck with four years of the boring, pant suiting crime of the Clintons.

It figures a dumb ass at Texas University would protest a law made where he could protect himself.

Wait....I'm confused. Wordkyle now believes those unemployment numbers are correct? I thought they were all frabricated!

Everyone knows that anytime you criticize a black person, especially Obammy, you are a racist. Unless they are conservative, then they are racist. SPEAKS VOLUMES....

Or maybe, he'll be retired. Brown is a breed apart. He doesn't run with anyone, and he doesn't have the same ambitions as many. 33 years of service, to the same department.

Climate scientists Barbara Streisand, the Pope and Al Gore have been saying that hurricanes were going to be getting stronger and more intense and with more frequency. So with these three experts all agreeing, the science is in and global warmism is for real and absolutely man made.

What Hurricane? I could not even find 30 mph wind speeds at that buoy much less the 74 mph required to call it a hurricane. To be classified as a hurricane, a tropical cyclone must have maximum sustained winds of at least 74 mph (33 m/s; 64 kn; 119 km/h). The other offshore buoys in the area tell the same story. The NWS station at Tallahassee had wind speeds of 22 mph. Closer to landfall was Apalachicola, Florida with 32 mph sustained winds.

There's a weird funk of depression at Baylor? I have been on campus there three times in the past two weeks and it seems great. Kids going to class, etc. Students, others seemed happy to me. Looked normal. Did not notice the depression hanging over Baylor.
