The Campaign For DA

9.05.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Yep, hardest working man in show business.
  • The Austin-American Statesman points out that some big city DA offices are going soft on the prosecution of marijuana because it is not a priority.  There is no public backlash. Who would have known that former Wise County Attorney Stephen Hale was ahead of his time in the mid 1990s when he refused to prosecute tiny amount of marijuana possession.
  • Lost of great college football this weekend but nothing was quite as moving as Nebraska going out into a "missing man" formation and intentionally getting a delay of game penalty in honor of its former punter who was recently killed in a car accident.
  • From a story of a former meth dealing cheerleaders from The Colony:  "Frisco soccer moms, as sad as that is, were my best customers because they were too scared to get out and get it themselves. But they wanted to clean the house all day and be productive and be wired," she says.
  • The Trump kids put out a print ad this weekend but the photo has been the love of the Internet. They do look like they are about to murder you.
  • I mention that I wanted to go to Burning Man some day, and this morning Drudge has a headline of  "Revolution against 'rich parasites' at utopian Burning Man."
  • It's a Fox News poll so, in this context, it is correct. And it's amazing:
  • Are we ever going to get the cause of death of ESPN's John Saunders? ESPN honored him over the weekend but no one addresses the elephant in the room. 
  • I like Fox 4's Jenny Anchondo but found it interesting that she used the word "philanthropist" on her blog page. (Technically, you don't have to one of the super wealthy to be one.)
  • Texas and Notre Dame was incredibly entertaining last night. But it was so disturbing of seeing the The Evil Empire running the Baylor offense. What took them so long? What has taken everyone so long? 
  • BagOfNothing reports this morning that the "boos" you heard when Swoopes first went in as quarterback were actually yells of "Swooooooopes".  Got to disagree with you there, buddy. Them were boos. 
  • This is actually a cool picture. You can see the coin up at the top while two of the players glare each other down. 
  • The Aggies had a crowd for the UCLA game was 100,433. An all time Texas high? Nope. And not even the biggest crowd of the weekend. 
  • I completely missed that DPS, which had a massive budget increase last year, now wants $1 billion just for border security.  
  • The police union in Santa Clara is threatening a boycott of the Kaepernick no-stand-at-anthem policy inadvertently strengthens his position. 
  • The Denton Police are not happy about this from over the weekend. According to Facebook comments (which are highly entertaining), it had been sitting unattended "for weeks":
  • I've always questioned elected officials on Twitter. Is their account informative or are they just campaigning during work hours? That Texas supreme court judge that loves Twitter as much as life itself must be feeling uneasy since he just unveiled an official campaign Twitter account. Not a bad strategy. He can always say, "No, that's my official account" yet can continue using his regular one for de facto campaigning.
  • Labor day reading: PTA mom was almost framed by a wicked lawyer couple. It's broken down into "six parts" but it is a really short read. The "parts" are the equivalent of very short chapters. Good stuff. (The final part was released last night).

I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work there, Lou. It was 'Swoopes'. He's a very liked player and the "18 Wheeler". He might not be the best pocket QB but he's a team leader with a great attitude. They've finally figured out a way to make him shine with the 18 Wheeler package and Horns fans like it.

Your ongoing harangues about elected officials tweeting is sort of late to the party, grandpa. They've been sending out "official" taxpayer-paid-for letters about their activities via snail mail for decades. And of course those "official" communications coincidentally become more frequent around election time. The game's the same as it always was, only the technology has changed.

Burning Man...the revolution would be the few who talk love and peace but their beef has always been jealousy over the rich man's power and money....it'always about the money. I see nothing wrong with the White Ocean people being there but I really don't understand why they would want to be there...those star gazers are nasty creatures...and Lord that sand is horrible. It's demontic...don't go Barry.

Sorry but its "Swoooooopes" not boos!!!

It is Swoopes!

Skippy, were they booing at the end of the game too?

They do look like they are about to murder you. They don't look like they are about to go to a Lolapalooza concert and smoke dope.

BG,

You obviously missed a couple of memos.

First, Fox News is against Trump. Murdoch does not want him to win.

Second. If Hilly does not get in the 90's, on the black vote, she will lose badly. Two things determine election wins...support, and turnout. She was ahead in most polls. Not so much any more. But her support was and is very weak. Many democrats are going to have something else to do on that particular Tuesday..

Because Hillary is hideous, heinous, hellspawn...Is it hellspawn or hell spawn?

Ahem, I believe the offense (aka Air Raid) evolves from Texas Tech, not Baylor.

Mother Teresa deserves no respect. She said suffering was a "gift from god" and that the poor should accept their lot. Her free clinics were unsanitary and not properly equipped and staffed, even though there was plenty of funding for the conditions to be improved. (They kept the clinics like that for the cameras. It's good emotional bait for the western audience.) She baptized non-Christians who were on the verge of death in her clinics without their consent, some even after they explicitly refused. She was a political tool not just in the anti-choice movement, but was anti-contraception as well. She did more to keep the poor in their place than to actually help them. She was no saint.

The Big 12 needs Texas to be good and so far this season they seem to be just that. Strong emphasis on so far. Win or lose it's just one game, sports fans.

And great news out of Waco where the Fixer Upper couple bought The Elite Cafe and will renovate and reopen it. Yay!

Hillary will still get 90 per cent of the black vote, but she won't get the same number of black votes that Obammy got. They still like free stuff, they just don't like who is giving it to them.

You're asking Barry that question?

I'm fine with people being stoned on marijuana. What I don't want to do is pay myself or be impacted, either in the form of social benefits, being a victim or any other expense or damage that comes with someone being stoned, not having a job, and criminal behavior, etc. It is amazing how many people really think marijuana should be legal, except when it shows up inside their own homes. Such hypocrites.

It's interesting that the "99 percent" hate the "rich man" but they won't walk away from the paychecks they get from the rich man, they won't stop buying and using the products that the rich man provides.

Thanks for the link to the PTA Mom story. Good read.

They were chanting swooooooopes you dumbass. Damn son get your head out of your ass.

Frisco soccer moms "were too scared to get out and get it themselves." How is that different than any other user who buys it from her, as opposed to cooking it themselves? Where does she expect them to get it, if not from a dealer?

You look at Trump's kids and see murderous intent? Got to disagree with you there, buddy. They look more likely to take your life savings than your life.

"Revolution against 'rich parasites' at utopian Burning Man" sounds like socialist code for "we just wanna get baked all day and have the dudes with coin give us everything we want." I haven't read the article, but I'm sure it's a screed about how big corporations are cashing in on the event.

The crowd last night was not saying "boo" when Swoopes came out, as noted by the announcers. Not likely they would sugarcoat that. The majority knew exactly why he was out there and they were in favor of it. Strong made good use of the two headed QB monster

sparkerr said...

Definitely "Swooooopes." Same thing as last year for the 18 Wheeler. @9:01 is right.

I sure hope you realize when you go to a Bruce Springsteen concert that it is "Bruuuuuce," not "boo".

Good post, Hitchens wrote a brilliant article on this some years ago. She was a pawn of the wealthy and a complete fraud. She didn't even receive care in her clinics and traveled to California for her medical care. She received huge sums of money but refused to release any audits of those funds.

Nothing new about what Texas did with Swoopes, Oklahoma did this for years with Blake Bell. I laughed at the SM freakout like this was some amazing new football strategy.

You sorta have to chuckle when you read about black people liking the free stuff. In wise co 90 percent of he free stuff goes to whites.. I wonder if I would want to trade places? Think not,but I won't disparage them black or white

They were boos. I was there, booing too.

" She was a political tool not just in the anti-choice movement, but was anti-contraception as well."

Sounds like you are a tool - and political.

In your shallow mind, whether or not a human lives is a political decision, not a moral one. What about the child? In what way is an unborn child not human? The child is biologically and genetically human, and can feel pain soon after conception. The only way that child is not human is politically.

Mother Theresa did more to help the poor than all the people who have ever read this blog put together, not to be sainted, but because she cared enough to do it. You are nothing more than a troll who was lucky his parents didn't choose abortion.

Marijuana issue just another example of people wanting freedoms but only if others attend to, suffer or pay for the consequences, or until those freedoms impact them negatively. What a great way to go through life. Ignorance is bliss.

In a democracy the voters will vote for the candidate who promises the most hand outs from the public treasury. The Clintons probably have read Tytler.

The picture of the Trump spawn makes me think it's a movie poster for the upcoming American Psycho - The Next Generation movie.

Thank God somebody defended Mother Teresa on here. Hitchins and a few others (and you will not need all your fingers to count them) throw out a false premise and fabricated perspective. They write far from the slums of the actual happenings.

I cannot believe people actually listen to these silly opinions but dismiss the thousands who worked with and were helped by her. People just dismiss the people who were there for years. This makes no logical or reasonable sense what so ever.

Regarding Saunders. I think it is pretty clear how he died and thus the reason no one is speaking. It is called respecting his family's privacy. Your constant conspiracies and disrespect of dead people is tiring.

You like Jenny Anchondo why? She stammers and stutter's half the time and is amateurish at articulation.
Fox 4 is news on a budget, can't even get 1080 high def. they broadcast is 720.

The Trumps look like jagoff siblings who hate their rich parents and who just told the one worthwhile sibling that loves the parents and cares nothing about the money that they killed their folks, framed the one decent, loving child and there is nothing that he can do about it.
