The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • Mike Pence's plane skidded off the runway. He'll probably get a replacement plane but it won't have the Trump/Pence paint on it. Where does one go to get a custom paint job for a jet?
  • Two odd things about the middle school teacher double murder case: (1) His wife, who was arrested for tampering with evidence yesterday, started a GoFundMe page Wednesday, labeled “Mom needs help raising boys alone." (2) I didn't know after her husband allegedly shot the two guys he also is alleged to have beat the men with the butt of the gun. What a weird case.
  • Everyone was posting their favorite Vines on Twitter yesterday and it was a huge, fun time-waste.
  • DPS has really ramped up its drug interdiction. There was a time in the late 1990s they basically got out of the drug business. However, they've had three unrelated stops over the last two days resulting in finds of 50, 63, and 67 pounds of marijuana. Yep. Marijuana. (None of the stops were in Wise County.) 
  • I had to buy Mrs. LL some Jell-O and learned you really have to look at the package to see what you are buying when it is a gelatin that doesn't have the Jell-O brand. Seriously. Those companies have a hard time coming up with a name.
  • Donald Jr. just happened to help a motorist in traffic. And then he just happened to tweet about it.
  • "Hundreds of American kids suddenly became paralyzed – and doctors don’t know why" a headline in the Star-Telegram.  That's either a sensational headline (if paralysis happens all the time) or a shocking story. 
  • I think I heard a radio ad for Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian this morning wanting us to not import oil from those "countries who hate our flag." That's just a funny way to insert the Colin Kaepernick controversy into that political race. 
  • Funny Second Amendment exchange (early in the week former congressman Joe Walsh said that he would grab his "musket" if Hillary was elected):
  • Hillary would probably prefer the news that the polls are "tightening" instead of the exact opposite. The news helps defeat voter overconfidence.
  • "Bridgeport Parks and Recreation’s Spooktacular Fall Festival is 5:30-8 p.m. Saturday at the Bridgeport Community Center . . . . The Texas Rangers mascot, Rangers Captain, will be there." Serious question: What does it cost to get that mascot there?
  • We have a Bundy acquittal and a big loss for federal prosecutors. (Sounds like they overcharged them.)  And I love the second sub-headline:

I have done some reading on the Rail Road Commission race. The Rep candidate is your cookie cutter Jesus loving businessman who knows nothing about oil. The Dem candidate is 79 years old and also knows nothing about oil. The Lib candidate is a former UT Prof and petroleum engineer named Mark Miller. He has a PHD from Stanford. He's easily the best choice on our ballots and prime example of why you shouldn't vote a straight party ticket.

Meacham Field in Fort Worth. They paint 787s and all kinds of airliners there. Custom jobs.

Great job on the RTG picture today. As you like to say, there's a lot going on there.

Ernest T said...

Yes, there are several companies at Meacham Field that do this work. Air Force One was even there earlier this year getting some work done.

I am not sure that it is a paint job. It may just be a wrap like you see on many work vehicles.

RTG - So, Barry, are you implying that if one goes down to the Caribbean, you can grab women by the...catamaran?

Piers Morgan is an ass. Love how that lady put him in his place.

The Oregon standoff case outcome was a bit surprising. And, regarding the sub-head, maybe more defense lawyers should be tased, just on principle, bro?

That guy who killed the two neighbors didn't beat them after he shot them. A facebook page of a relative of the victims said he rang the door bell and when they opened the door the killer struck one of them with the but of his assualt weapon...then he shot each of them. The killers wife's gofundme account has been taken down..was probably put up by a friend...doubt she did it, so don't hold that against her. I think she was probably afraid of her husband and did whatever he asked...and he asked her to clean the blood of the gun safe and the cops say she hid a ammunition magazine under her bed. There was so gossip on another page that his wife may have went missing from the house that night and he thought she was at their house at some point...just a rumor probably. Oh and btw they are not gay per the family...facebook is a tell all sometimes.

If people can burn down and loot entire neighborhoods in protest and not even be arrested then I have no problem with a couple of rednecks squatting in a bird sanctuary when they at least have a valid protest.

A kid from Texas killed 4 in California while driving drunk and his sister set up a GoFundMe account for his medical bills and legal bills. While scrolling through the various accounts, the very next one was an account set up to help pay the expense to ship two of the deceased back to their hometown in Arizona. Pretty stark contrast.

If Hillary wins, where do we get our muskets, pitchforks and torches? Amazon.com needs to stock up! Trump was pushing "vote flipping" in Texas based on one Facebook
post. The Texas SEC, a Republican, reported no problems, just voter errors! What will happen on Wednesday? How do they start a civil war and "drain the swamp". Just heard a Trump supporter say we can do it by the ballot box this time, the bullet box the next time! What the heck is this about? I just don't get the anger! I grew up in a working class family, ate beans and cornbread, had two pair of shoes and never heard my parents complain. My dad said a man was lucky if he had a full stomach and a warm place to sleep. What happened to gratitude?

Yup. Marijuana. When a person is just fine with their own kids and family members, and his or her surgeon, and the pilot flying the plane, and others being stoned, then I'll listen to that person's pro-legalization views. Until then, hypocrite.

Not funny to those who understand it. Only a douche would think that is a funny exchange. Morgan is an idiot. Go back to Brittan or wherever you are from.

Read and try to comprehend the entire story.

Only a douche reads a headline and jumps to conclusions.

Are you just fine with them drinking alcohol? Sounds like you may have a hypocritical paradox there, buckaroo.

Your dad sounds like he would love Hillary then...she is determined to make sure all working class men end up with just that and nothing more. I'm sorry pal, I want to thrive while I am here and leave a future for my kids and grandkids! You can vote for a warm bed and place to sleep, I'm voting to preserve a prosperous country! I'm sorry, but I want something more!

I'd prefer a stoned surgeon, been trying to get this pink elephant removed for years!

O.K., previously some folks on this blog have been annoyed @ a poster who used all caps, and they labeled him "all caps guy." We have a new annoyance in the clubhouse, and I offer the following monikers: Douche guy, Duddley Doucheright, doctor douche, and Mr. Massengill. Please, discuss.

Skippy, For someone that complains so much about how much money the DPS wastes, I never hear you complain about how much money the FBI wasted investigating Hillary when it was obvious she was guilty along with her band of thieves.

That virus is not new and I think it is a polio mutation. I remember how scared we were in the '50's because so many had polio. The vaccine is probably in our dna waiting to strike. Not a good time to be parents right now.
