Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • "The state’s highest criminal court Wednesday morning dismissed all three appeals filed on Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s behalf, saying his lawyers neglected to include everything needed on the petitions." However, the court gave them 10 days to fix it. That's one odd thing about appeals: At the trial court level, missing a deadline can be fatal to your case. Once a case is appealed, you can screw up, the court will tell you screwed up, but the court will always give you a chance to fix it. 
  • There hasn’t been a criminal defense lawyer on the U.S. Supreme Court in 25 years. 
  • Sounds like a movie: A Penn State professor who police say was pushed off an 80-foot rock quarry ledge died slowly and possibly was alive and immobile for up to two days.
  • Call back country humor in the Update this morning with a reference to the long known cause of many an accident: He tried to "straighten out the curb". Edit: CURVE!
  • Do police get overtime pay for attending a funeral in full uniform?
  • I told you that there's something weird about the case in Johnson County about the lady which allegedly withheld medical care for her child for attention. Yesterday, at a court hearing, she even had that "this case is different" look. 
  • Halloween idea: Sexy Harambe outfit.
  • Someone explain Trump's  “ideological certification test” for immigration that he mentioned last night. He said, "I only want to admit people who share our values and love our people." Truly, what "values" does Trump want to impose upon those who wish to come here?
  • And how did he get away with this last night: "The result of her misconduct was the release of thousands and thousands of dangerous criminal aliens who should have been sent home to their countries. Instead we have them all over the place. Probably a couple in this room as a matter of fact, but I hope not." So he's seen a couple of people in the room who look like "criminal aliens"?
  • But he is gaining on Hillary.

"Straighten out the curve", not "curb". That's a well known racing term, not country humor.

Barry, pertaining to your interest in ballparks/baseball.
You know as many, that sound that is pretty much the same in any arena of a well placed and positioned bat as it connects perfectly with a ball and the resulting arc over the highest wall in said park.
That was the sound heard in Phoenix last nite- Hillary heard it- and every moonbat sycophant is reacting to it this morning.
Hope Hillary was wearing her Depends last night for the sake of her aides and confidantes.

"Do police get overtime pay for attending a funeral in full uniform"?

No you idiot. Most departments have a dress uniform that the officers are encouraged to wear when they attend the funeral, whether they are on duty or not.

Pretty sure it's "straighten out the curve." "Straighten out the curb" makes little to no sense, as curbs are raised, not curvy. Curves, on the other hand...

Maybe Trump is simply referring to those that are willing to abide by our constitution and laws instead of Shariah, those that do not wish us dead, and those that wish to make a contribution to our free society instead of simply being leeches on taxpayers? If his administration simply vets those coming in our country, it will be much more than the current Obama cronies are doing which is absolutely nothing.

(CNSNews.com) -- According to Gallup, relying on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the real unemployment rate on July 1 was 9.7%, which was up from 9.6% on June 1.

That is nearly double the often cited unemployment rate, which was "officially" 4.9% in July.

"Widely reported unemployment metrics in the U.S. do not accurately represent the reality of joblessness in America," said Gallup on its website.

Skippy, That kind of blows a hole in your glowing appreciation of Obammy fixing the economy, doesn't it?

Skippy, Quit putting words in Trump's mouth. He didn't say anything about "seeing" illegal aliens in the crowd. He said there may be a couple in the crowd. And the liberal weenie media are calling the mom's of children killed by illegals that Trump had onstage with him, called Angels Moms, a hate group. REALLY? But the gold star dad that Hillary used as a pawn at her convention, who is a proponent of Sharia Law, is being held up as a hero. REALLY?

The saying from the Update is “straightened out the curve,” not curb. Autocorrect?

As weird as Trump's comment was, he's not saying he actually saw any people who look like criminal aliens. He's saying that out of thousands and thousands, the odds are that a couple of them could likely be among those in attendance.

Could you explain how the photo you've provided imparts a "this case is different" look? I don't get it.

Why would a cop get paid to attend a funeral, in uniform or otherwise? That's not a law enforcement duty. If security was necessary, then he's not in attendance. If he/she is escorting the procession, then yes

On the average we release three hundred to four hundred Central Americans into this country each and every day (as per DHS Policy), most do not even know how to read or write (in their native language). Mind you that's just in my Sector (Rio Grande Valley). All these people are released never to be seen again.

February: Investigators from the Government Accountability Office successfully defraud the ObamaCare system 11 out of 12 times.

No network evening news coverage

March: The Congressional Budget Office says that ObamaCare will cost $136 billion more than predicted a year ago. The CBO also revealed that 9 million fewer people will have work-based coverage under ObamaCare than if the law had never been enacted.

No network evening news coverage



April - May: 1 million less people have coverage during 2016 than was estimated, and 12 of 23 insurance nonprofit plans will not offer coverage this year.

During this time period, United Healthcare announced that it would pull out in all but a “handful of states.” It later announced it would be “dramatically scaling back its involvement” in ObamaCare, and pulled out of state exchanges in California.

Above is a photo of benched 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's practice socks, which appear to show a pig in a police officer's hat.

CBS Sports' John Breech reports that Kaepernick has been wearing the anti-cop socks "since at least Aug. 10," but somehow hasn't been asked about them yet.


Despite being largely irrelevant on the field now, Kaepernick has managed to make himself the subject of a flood of headlines after he declared that he would no longer stand for the national anthem because America "oppresses" minorities and allows its cops to "murder" innocent "people of color."

If America is so oppressive to minorities, why are so many risking their lives and breaking the law to get here? Wait before you answer that, I think I know the answer. It's called you get a lot of free stuff for nothing.

Come on Barry, the values by which most Americans live. How about respect for our country, allegiance to this country above other countries, following our laws, learning our language (yes, I know English is not the official language but the generally accepted spoken language of our country), This has nothing to do with legal or illegal immigrants but simply common sense. People that come here should be proud to be here and embrace our culture and laws. It's not racist or xenophobic it's just plain common sense. Would you allow someone to live in your home that did not share the values for your home? Trump may have a lot of flaws and may even be a whack job but he is right on the money on this one.

well, they sure aren't the lack of values coming from the "progressive" side. As a matter of fact, the Left appears to have no values at all. Anything goes, if you know what I mean.

THIS SINGLE QUESTION SPEAKS VOLUMES OF YOUR PATHETIC LACK OF MORALES, VALUES, AND ETHICS DOESN'T IT?

Anonymous said...

Mr. sad Counselor, every time Trumps speaks you critique it (even when common sense answers the question)

Even Lawyers should understand the difference between imposing values versus sharing values.
Democrats however, force values (beliefs) upon all others as a means of consolidated control - ie; Men in girls restrooms, Same sex marriage, abortion etc. They preach choice but force agendas. You have no issue with this but OMG let Trump suggest that we encourage people with like values in our country and you suggest some type of obtrusion?
The obtrusion is on our country at every level because of the free for all immigration laws. This my friend is why a person as caustic as Trump is even in the playing field...because people like you placed him right there. Complain, but be mad in the mirror..

I wish the idiot would get his way think what 11million fewer shoppers at Walmart would do for our country. There would be abundant houses to rent, white boys would be mowing our yards,building our houses,building our roads. Sales tax receipts might take a hit, property taxes would have to go uo to take up the slack....."..but being lily white might be worth it


By the way where can I get a white boy to work,, where do they line up to get manual labor jobs

I would have said it differently than 8:52, but he is correct. I cannot imagine putting in for overtime for attending a funeral, unless it was an assignment for security or something. If I'm in full dress uniform, I'm there to honor the decedent and his family.

I seem to recall that one of the many gaffes that former Dallas Police Chief Terrell Bolton had made was that he had billed the city overtime for having visited officers in the hospital, visited families at their homes after officers' deaths, and attended official funerals. (Side note: Lots of us local cops have been pleased to show DPD Chief Brown show the world that a black DPD chief who came up through the ranks actually can be respectable.)
