The Campaign For DA

9.26.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



Thought it was an obscene gesture there for a second.

  • This photo was floating around yesterday. 
  • There is a crazy heroin/fentanyl problem in Ohio. Seven overdosed and died in Cleveland on Saturday. This comes on the heels of 174 overdose calls in Cincinnati over a period of six days last month.
  • That Ice-T commercial makes me laugh every time. 
  • LSU fired Les Miles yesterday so they now owe him $13 million. I'd put Art Briles in the top two of candidates since LSU doesn't care about baggage. And in doing so they might get five star quarterback recruit Jarrett Stidham who quit Baylor this summer and has already begun to hang around SEC sidelines
  • Pretty rare to see such a stance: The Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association posted a letter "vehemently" opposing the appointment of a prosecutor to the (relatively spare) position of probable cause magistrate. They literally called her "unethical." 
  • Jerry and 50 Cent together just makes me laugh.
  • Tributes for Jose Fernandez, who died in a boating accident over the weekend, flowed in yesterday. One I heard was heartfelt but mentioned how Fernandez "lived life to its fullest."  That kind of stopped me down since being in a 30' speeding boat at 3:00 a.m. -- a stone's throw from South Beach -- would probably be considered as living life to its fullest.
  • A tweet one year ago from Fernandez:
  • I really like this photo.
  • Insightful Cowboy Analysis: (1) That hit that Cole Beasley took should have killed him. (2) We've got an Over-Celebrator in Ezekiel Elliott. 
  • Trump moves closer to Clinton in the polls. This is kind of like the fourth quarter of an NCAA basketball final between Duke (Hillary) and Harvard (Trump).  Duke is now winning by 10 as we enter the back end of the fourth quarter. Duke feels comfortable but there's an uneasiness about that crazy and arrogant Harvard which shouldn't even be there to begin with.

HCCLA actually goes to bat on these issues and will call it like they see it. It is the only bar organization I've ever been a member of that is worth a damn to its members.

"Trump moves closer to Clinton in the polls." - Your uneasiness seems to be shared by a lot of Democrats. Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate and her facade is cracking. Expect the next six weeks to be a barrage of media stories on how Trump is Satan, Hitler, and New Coke all in one package. Hillary's aura of wonderment, meanwhile, will dazzle and inspire everyone.

And you better hope she doesn't have a coughing fit or a dizzy spell (including goo- goo- googly eyes) during the debate.

I really like this photo

The Butcher of Baghdad (Dubya) just wants to be loved. He's so wuvable. Don't you just want to snuggle with old Dub'?

Give Cole Beasley some credit. That is one tough little squirrel!
If anybody should have been kilt, it was that suit on the sidelines that got scissor-kicked by Wilcox.
I'd like to hear some audio of Jerry saying "Fitty!" Or maybe asking somebody "What was his name again...Half Dollar?"

When I was a kid, Arnold Palmer was my favorite non-Cowboy sports personality. And I didn't care anything about golf

Bulls/Eagles can-of-worms TV broadcast critique:
~announcer started right off by calling them Bulldogs.
~The ribbon at the bottom of the screen said "Bridgepot" but got corrected.
~Play-by-play guy said Bulls would be playing Benbrook on Thursday at home. Nope, they're playing at Clark Stadium in FW.
~they showed a poster on the B'port side that said "Bulls (heart) KXTA". Thankfully, they didn't point out that the TV station is actually KTXA. Or nobody looked at it close enough to notice. For future reference, TX is an abbreviation for the state in which we live. That's probably why they're used in that order.

That pic of Hillary is an indictment of our selfie-centered culture. Hmmm, speaking of indictment...

I HEAR OLE HILLARY IS PISSED THAT THEY WON'T LET HER SIT DOWN AND SHE HAS TO STAND DURING THE DEBATE. AT LEAST THEY GOT HERE A STEPSTOOL!

WONDER IF SHE WILL TAKE A KNEE DURING THE ANTHEM.

Closer to Duke up by two and Harvard has the ball.

I'm still reading more about the Marlin pitcher, but I did see that they FOUND the boat at 3:00 a.m. Not sure when he actually went out.

Zek an over-celebrator...yup.

In 1948, pollsters who had been taking polls the same way for over fifty years got sideswiped when the country's dependence upon radio during WWII bled over into the way the election was run and impacted the results in a way the pollsters hadn't predicted. Almost every poll had Dewey defeating Truman.

This election, Trump is using social media in a way that hasn't been used previously to similarly confound the pollsters. Was he REALLY down 12 points a few weeks ago, or were the pollsters not asking the right folks the right questions?

What kind of drug cocktail will Hillary be on tonite? The mind wanders....It can't just be Xanax like the Benghazi hearing. They must control her snarky temper but she has to look like she's awake. Will it be dispensed by some remote control IV?

Hillary will be unable to stand for the duration of the debate.

Duke and Harvard? That's a bunch of wishful thinking on your part.

I'd compare it more like the 1993 Oilers / Bills.

How does someone "accidentally" speed like hell in the middle of the night in a speedboat? The media, of course, and comments are basically "this could have happened to anyone...tragic accident". Uh nope. Nothing accidental about it at all.

Hey, why not go on down to Orlando and meet with the little girls recovering from their injuries while they're being told their parents were killed by a distracted phone user and lane drifter. Let em know that we're sure glad no pesky police officers were out there bothering those innocent texters and trying to keep their mom and dad alive.

The only problem with your little basketball analogy is that Duke has unlimited fouls to give!

The in-vogue question regarding the mainstream media being pro-liberal in their efforts, will be brought out in laser sharp focus in the coming weeks if Trump does well tonight. They have already tried every thing in their arsenal,, but now they are going to have throw any semblance of balance out and go to the photon torpedoes.
Hold onto your seats.

Hey retard you are wrong again. It was a fishing boat doing 55-60 not a speedboat doing 100. Idiot.

The jetties in and around that area are very difficult to see at night because they are low to the water. It looks like a terrible mistake by an inexperienced or discombobulated boater. Distances on water are very difficult to judge, especially at speed, and they may have simply thought they were well clear of the jetty.

I wonder why U.S. immigration officers would endorse Trump? You think they might see the bad actors that Obammy is letting in and what Hillary would continue to allow?

The world was a better place with Mr. Arnold Palmer in it. He was a great champion and even better person.

We should all take note to the many words of tribute that are being spoken about his life today.

He was beloved by so many quite simply because he treated people with compassion and respect.

He treated people the way he wanted to be treated.

12:41 must be too young to remember when Bridgeport agreed to have a running clock in the second half of the Battle of Big Sandy when the roles of the teams were reversed. A warning to the unwise: karma can be a bitch some day...
