The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • I don't know what to make of it, but there's a Texas government run website which  shows up to date payments on government contracts at that state level. Glance through it. Remember how many times I've told you that the way to get rich is to be in the private sector working on a contract basis with the government? The amount of money thrown around is amazing.
  • Trump spent the morning after the debate calling a woman fat. This woman: 
  • I saw her on CNN and Fox News last night but had a hard time understanding her. She didn't speak 'merican to good.  It was a little like watching Gloria on Modern Family
  • Regarding the heroin epidemic in Ohio, this news from right across the border: "Clearfield, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania coroner says a Guatemalan found dead over a guardrail had swallowed up to $500,000 worth of heroin and was killed when one of the packets burst."
  • The Dallas Morning News has a story on mums. This silliness like below happens in the big city but not around here right? 
  • That Arochi trial took a twist when the defendant agreed to have the judge and not the jury assess punishment. I don't understand that. (1) A jury, although unlikely, could grant probation. A judge can't.  (1A) You've basically given up any possible reversible error from being committed by the prosecution during the now fast-tracked punishment phase or error in a no-longer-necessary court's charge. (2) That judge has already played to the media a little bit, and I'd bet it will be a shockingly long sentence for that media as well as future political campaigns. (3) There's a consensual underage sex case against the guy still pending. Sheesh. If the defense doesn't think there's any legitimate trial error, try to cut a deal with the State on both cases. Assuming the State would listen (a big assumption), it would be a steep price. 35-40 years maybe. 
  • I say it every year at this time: I love the red clouds at dusk and dawn.
  • Former Texas prosecutor John Bradley, who had a controversial role in the Michael Morton wrongful incarceration case, has resigned his job as Palau’s Attorney General. A job, by the way, which looks great simply by doing a Google image search of Palau.
  • A prominent Bridgeport resident had a hot sports opinion on the Bridgeport/Decatur football outcome.
  • And despite the commentors yesterday: I reserve the right to pull out a Pulp Fiction reference whenever I wish from now to eternity. 
  • Mark Davis on the radio this morning went on a double rant that everyone should pay respect during the National Anthem and that almost every black shooting by cops wouldn't have happened if the victim had "complied."  That's really scary when you cut it to its core: You  must show respect to government. If you do not comply with that government, you might die. 
  • I didn't even know there was a Houston Forward Times.

Arochi. Question to the lawyers who read this blog. Is there allowance in the law for the state to drop charges on pending cases against him in exchange for say a 50 year sentence if he tells them where the Morris girl is. Would his lawyers advise him to do that or roll the dice that this conviction might be overturned and that he'll be found not guilty on the pending charges?

The real story is that Bridgeport has decided only Varsity needs to have practices and be coached. There is zero program development. The high school (3 games) got outscored by 143 points. You cannot tell me the talent divide is that great...lack of program development is the bigger problem. 14 coaches and all concentrated on varsity. Something is wrong with that.

Can't figure out why the great Messenger hasn't done an in depth investigative report on this!!

I'm with you man, screw the people. Cops are always right and we should immediately do what they say every time or face the consequences and likely death.

Like this guy, who they drew on and eventually sprayed for several extra seconds while he was having a stroke.

At the end this cop asks him of he understands why he "had to get sprayed". Because he wasn't doing what they say.

Makes Barry's point pretty well, I think.

Hawks isn't a 'prominent' bport resident. he did have 'kids' who attended Bridgeport high school. that is the extent of his involvement
the plain fact is Bridgeport has no athletes on their team. the football team consists of slow, small and weak kids.
only the uneducated people want coach H to leave. the old-timers know what it was like before Henson and what it will be like after Henson.
berry, just because you see something someone has written doesn't mean it is the truth or the majority belief. surely you are smarter than that.

Good luck getting Henson replaced. He owns the administration in Bridgeport. The school board is useless when it comes to this. They are too scared to do the right thing and want to hide behind and blame Superintendent. Henson does not answer to Principal or Superintendent in Bridgeport and Im pretty sure he answers to no one, he's calling the shots. Everyone wants to live in the past while progressive school districts like Decatur move forward to the future. Maybe one day Bridgeport will have athletes again and Henson will be able to compete again or maybe one day we will elect a school board or the one we elected will stop being sheep and do the right thing for the school district and kids future. Who knows maybe one day we wake up and Henson has 300 wins after 46 years at Bridgeport. #wakeupbridgeport

Sandra Allen James, a former Washington, DC, political fundraiser says Presidential candidate-to-be Clinton invited her to his hotel room during a political trip to the nation’s capital in 1991, pinned her against the wall and stuck his hand up her dress. She says she screamed loud enough for the Arkansas State Trooper stationed outside the hotel suite to bang on the door and ask if everything was all right, at which point Clinton released her and she fled the room. When she reported the incident to her boss, he advised her to keep her mouth shut if she wanted to keep working. Miss James has since married and left Washington. Reached at her home last week, the former Miss James said she later learned that other women suffered the same fate at Clinton’s hands when he was in Washington during his Presidential run.

* Christy Zercher, a flight attendant on Clinton’s leased campaign plane in 1992, says Presidential candidate Clinton exposed himself to her, grabbed her breasts and made explicit remarks about oral sex. A video shot on board the plane by ABC News shows an obviously inebriated Clinton with his hand between another young flight attendant’s legs. Zercher said later in an interview that White House attorney Bruce Lindsey tried to pressure her into not going public about the assault.

* Kathleen Willey, a White House volunteer, reported that Clinton grabbed her, fondled her breast and pressed her hand against his genitals during an Oval Office meeting in November, 1993. Willey, who told her story in a 60 Minutes interview, became a target of a White House-directed smear campaign after she went public.

Do what Alvoid did: get people to lie about the AD's behavior with students, get a school board member who is more concerned with his social position than the education of the kids, and get a coaches former player to run for the board and then quit while continuing to pressure other board members with their employment if they don't go along, and that AD is GONE!!!! Then you end up with your good coaches leaving or "retiring", teachers who quit in the middle of the six weeks, coaches who struggle to or can't get a job anywhere else, and a 2A D1 football team who is 2-3 and can't beat a D2 team to save their lives. (MAYBE they can beat poor 0-5 City View this week; we'll see)

I invite you to attend the Bridgeport School Board meetings, which are open to the public. Henson does not own the school district and is not 'calling the shots' as far as administration is concerned.

No, I do not work for the school district; do not have a student athlete; have no passion for football and have no personal association with Henson. I do, however, attend the school board meetings regularly to which you do not. I say that with relative certainty because the only ones who attend most of the time are school staff and administration, press and students who are being honored for their accomplishments.

As a general rule of thumb, if you have a problem with something, OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE. TAKE ACTION. DO SOMETHING BESIDES COMPLAIN. Otherwise, your words are wasted and you come off as petty and bitter.

wordkyle said...

To put things into perspective:

Twenty years ago private citizen Donald Trump fat-shamed a once-thin model in his employ for gaining too much weight.

Seven years ago Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed sensitive government information to foreign agencies. Over the past year she has repeatedly lied to cover up for herself. In the most recent FBI document dump, it showed "approximately 1,000 work-related emails between Clinton's personal email and General David Petraeus." Most of these were not turned over to investigators, as Clinton claimed.

Now. Which of these subjects was brought up in the presidential debate? Which of these subjects is dominating news headlines six weeks before the election?

Hey knucklehead, the "compliance with the government" thing is not meant for day to day living, it's meant for the types of critical and potentially or absolutely dangerous situations faced by law officers and those that are for whatever reason in a position of suspicion. So yeah, if you are caught driving a stolen car after a report that you've been stabbing your family to death...it's OK for a cop to expect you to comply with "put your hands up". That is not unreasonable.

Russian hackers were brought up in the debate, but Trump blamed a 400 pound hacker instead. Is that because he's in bed with the Russians? He has them on his campaign staff and can only get loans from Russian banks. I think that the Russian issue is a much bigger one than anything that Clinton could have done.

To have a free society it should be a bit of a wild west environment, in the early years we had "peace officers" we've slowly evolved into a nation of laws, a "police state" if you will. That is why now days they are known as "law enforcement officials" so since everyone seems happy living in a environment where "just follow the rules and no one gets hurt" we should just remove the Constitution from our society. Each one of the Bill of Rights limits the authority of government and "law enforcement officials" so just get rid of it, the laws have surpassed it anyway.

Well good golly Wordkyle, why do you think Trump didn't bring it up during the debate? Because it's only important to nutters and conspiracists like you and your ilk? Because HRC is the most investigated politician in history, and has been found to have committed no crimes? Because the chair of the Benghazi committee was busted manufacturing evidence against her? Because even the last two secretaries of state told her to do what she did?

I don't know, seems like a whole lot of nothing to me--and to every other reasonable-minded non nut-job in the country.

1129 - Are you arguing that these are equivalent issues?

Is there a "new" update about the emails, so that it would dominate "news" headlines? I'd say the e-mails between Clinton and Petraeus, revealed in Friday's FBI document dump, qualify. Or the previously undisclosed immunity deals (revealed last week) the FBI handed out to key players in the Clinton e-mail investigation. Or the reference to a "Hillary coverup operation" by employees at the company in charge of managing her e-mail.

Nothing newsworthy there, huh?

wordkyle said...

1144 - "I think that the Russian issue is a much bigger one than anything that Clinton could have done." But a deal with the Russians is exactly what Clinton did do. While Clinton was Secretary of State, with her approval, major donors to the Clinton Foundation "gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States."

Hillary Clinton has been bought and paid for by foreign agencies with goals antithetical to the interests of the United States. The Democrat candidate for President of the United States is completely compromised.

1203 - We're talking about the Miss Universe title, awarded to beauty queens who represent a certain image of women, similar to top models. Disagree with that image all you want, but that's what these young women sign up and compete for. The image is what they represent, and what they're responsible for. Does it have to be pointed out that the average woman doesn't meet that unrealistic portrayal, nor do they (or should they) want to?

And yes, given the job requirements, I'd say a 30% increase in weight in less than a year while she's representing the Miss Universe pageant constitutes "ballooning." I'd say the same for an NFL lineman who went from 350 lbs to 450 lbs during the off season.

Let's just get some points out there from the west side of the creek.

Neil Hawks doesn't mean squat in this town. He brought some very fine kids who were athletes and we won a State Championship in a sport we will never compete in again. I am fine with that. I enjoyed the ride. It was fun. 3 out of 4 were above average students and are quality individuals who contributed to this school and town outside of athletics. Neil doesn't support Henson because he couldn't get Alan replaced by Chasteen.

Decatur has near double the amount of students in their high school than Bridgeport. When and if we ever beat Decatur again, your coach should probably lose his job immediately. The talent pool is vastly greater on the east side of the creek.

Henson has wore out his welcome. He is a fine man who did a great job for a long time. Sometimes complacency can take hold when you have been in one place for an extended period of time. Perception is reality and he has lost the participation he once had. The only way to get that back is to bring in new blood.

He has also made some poor decisions recently. The choice to have two JV teams, making practice optional for one team is unacceptable. The attention given to other sports in hiring quality coaches is also unacceptable. The non existent off season program and lack of attention at the middle school leads me to believe he is biding time until he can retire.

I would love to see some new faces, but I also want the board to treat him with the respect he has earned. Be realistic in our hiring process. We are nothing short of a stepping stone for a coordinator looking for a head job. Lets take 3 to 5 of his best years and keep moving along.

Hawks is just saying what should have been said long ago. Henson has had some of the best talent in the county over the years. What does he do makes them a one way player. Can you imagine Colin Jones as a free safety not just a RB or Keenan Holdman at corner just to name a couple. His offense is old and not creative at all its not 1995 anymore. If you notice coach Cartwright in Boyd changed offense philoshy a few times over the years hence the two rings in 3 trips to the state championship. What a terrible way a lot of people in Bridgeport look at things don't change what we have something new could be worse. So what you just quit trying! Nice!!
