The Campaign For DA

9.13.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • What happened to that 90+ year old woman who was walking from the metroplex to D.C.? 
  • From the official Trump site -- buy early for Christmas:
  • I wonder what a guy from Fort Worth is thinking after being on a South Dakota Indian reservation, gets in a wreck, gets arrested for driving recklessly (no reference to drugs or alcohol), the prosecutor is with the U.S. Attorney's office, and your trial is in federal court. And then you are acquitted.  (Side note: The Feds are prosecuting car wrecks now when they get the chance?)
  • How come you are "on" a reservation instead of "in" a reservation?
  • I want Rick Perry's jacket from Dancing With The Stars . . .
  • He was a painfully awkward dancer and was awkward in the post-dance interview, but I'll give the guy credit. I wouldn't have the guts to do that. 
  • RG3 is probably done. His career and that of Vince Young are very similar. 
  • Sideline anthem protests: I still don't particularly care.
  • Legal thought: A lot of people correctly say that the protests of certain NFL players during the national anthem is not a Freedom of Speech issue. Technically correct. The government is not involved in retaliation which would trigger the First Amendment. However private, personal speech is the way any First Amendment case gets started. Without personal speech, there is nothing for which the government to react to.
  • Raiders of Lost Ark scene recreated in Jerry World?:
  • The Austin American Statesman did a piece on whether DPS engages in racial profiling and which has prompted one Texas legislator to ask for a hearing on the issue.
  • A promoted ad on my Twitter feed this morning which makes me wonder what they think of me . . . 
  • "COMMISSIONERS APPROVE BUDGET, TAX RATE – Wise County commissioners Monday approved a $62.9 million budget for fiscal year 2017." Just for fun and nonsense, what was the budget seven years ago? We can then say, "During the Obama Administration, Wise County's budget increased from $___ million to $62.9 million in 2017."

I saw a video of her yesterday with a group of men in suits helping her into a black van!

When the crime occurs on federal land, then yes

How come you are "on" a reservation instead of "in" a reservation?
How come you are "on" your own property instead of "in" your property? The reservation isn't a structure, it's land.

Is that an Apollo space capsule that's splashed down in the water behind the RTG?

Barry, you really shouldn't be so paranoid about Wise County's budget during the Obama years. He has screwed up enough on his on without expanding blame. Most people are not concerned at all with the Wise County budget as compared with the cells of terrorists we have allowed to pass freely over our what used to be "borders". I somehow doubt that they will be allowed to live in that idiot's neighborhood...but I would like to see that as much as I would like to see Hillary serve as Ambassador to Benghazi.

Rick Perry dancing skills matched up perfectly with his governor skills and presidential campaign! Guess he thinks this will help him in his race against Ted Cruz for his senate seat!

Here's another legal thought. Since when does "freedom of speech" apply when you are on the job?

Everyone needs to start looking into Hillary and Parkinson's disease! This does not seem to be just "political rumor mongering", because I've seen some things that have made me go "huh?" lately. Especially that weird response to the balloon drop during the convention.

Sorry, but she has a concealed illness permit.

Technically couldn't NFL put a stop to the sideline protest? They are at work correct?

I'm with you in general, but when you go to a park you're "at" or "in" the park.

There's enough weirdness for BG to be able to ask. He's had dumber questions, for sure.

Wait till it is revealed Hillary does not have pneumonia after going on CNN and saying she lied about it because she didn't think it was a big deal. She is incapable of telling the truth like all liberals

Anonymous said...

Sure, but since the military no longer pays them for all the fake patriotism BS, the NFL is probably not interested in pissing off the millions of non-white fans who probably agree with the protestors.

EVERYONE knows Hillary Clinton is a liar. The problem is, NONE of her supporters care.

Now you know why the US is circling the drain.

The NFL can thank the NBA for its problem with the Flag and silent protests. Because the NBA owners collectively bargained for NBA players to stand during the Star Spangled Banner, the NFL players association takes the position that the issue must be collectively bargained in order to be governed. Any discipline that flowed from Goodell's personal disagreement with the method of protest would immediately be appealed and, as in the Brady case, shot down by Goodell and then litigated. Someone somewhere has decided that the NBA's position would resonate with the Courts. That and the fact that the game is making news for something other than CTE issues have probably conspired to keep Goodell from squelching the protests.

Well Barry you are the expert (in law) but I do believe that all crimes on reservations are prosecuted in federal courts. Check it out. My source is Tony Hillerman.

It seems I remember from past comments that Rage claims to be a gun person.

You do understand that if elected, Hillary is coming after our guns. She has made that clear. And with her inevitable supreme court appointments, she might just make it stick.

Are you ready for civil war, Princess Rage? Cause that's what comes next if you get your wish

It's amazing that repubs get so upset about Hillary's emails but didn't bat an eye when the Bush whitehouse had 22 million emails go missing on a private server owned by the gop.

On Hillary and guns:

1. If Hillary goes after guns as much as Republican's said Obama would go after guns, we'll be just fine. In fact, the only real gun law Obama has ever signed was to increase access to guns in national parks, and gun ownership is greatly increased under Obama.

2. So far, all Hillary has said was that people with mental issues shouldn't have guns. Who among us is against that? Even the NRA says it's a mental health problem, not a gun problem.

3. Like a Republican who would be fine with the loss of the 4th amendment because they have nothi to hide, I'm fine with increased regulation because I have no criminal history or mental illness. So I'll get to keep my guns, thanks.

Civil war? Good grief, you are crazy. I feel pretty sorry for paranoid idiots like you.

But, the commissioners have not doubled the county's debt over the past 7 years as Obama has done with the national debt.... Obama, the $20 trillion dollar man and easily the worst POTUS in history...

The only way to know for sure if police are racially profiling is to know (impossible to know) absolutely whether every single vehicle within an officer's vision was or was not in violation, and the race of each and every driver. It's the only way to build a statistical case. Otherwise, you can't account for the differences in population and the driving habits. If it's profiling, then how come hundreds upon tens of thousands of people of color DON'T get pulled over when cheating the speed limit, or just get warnings, etc.? For instance, is it profiling if, in a town in Texas that might be 95% Hispanic population, that 95% of drivers being cited are Hispanic? According to all this craziness, yes...the headline would be "TEXAS TOWN ONLY CITES HISPANIC DRIVERS" and let the protests begin.
