The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Hot Scary Clown Opinions: (1) This is ridiculously overblown, (2) There's a huge difference between a threat made to a specific person/entity by someone signing off as a clown online and someone who is just outside in a clown suit. (3) Being in public in a clown suit ain't no crime, (4) Those who are actually dressing up are just doing bits, and I'm a little surprised we haven't had more clown sightings. This country loves bits. (5) I bet it is actually hard to find an adult sized clown suitably priced for short lived comedy.  
  • Dear Messenger: I am stealing this Update item in light of the above bullet point as a matter of public concern. (Everyone go buy a paper this week or subscribe online so they won't sue me.)
  • There was breaking news as I write this of a "body found in Anna."  Didn't that Arochi guy just convicted of kidnapping go near Anna on the night of his alleged crime? (Or the body might be related to something that happened overnight. No facts yet. )
  • The Rangers first two playoff games are in the afternoon on a weekday? Ranger Derek Holland must have been so upset that he hit up on a Playboy model yesterday.
  • I'm guessing he looked like this after the typed that:
  • From the comments yesterday: "I know you mentioned a lot of traffic cases out of South Wise County. I've been driving 730 south to Azle for a job lately and Wise County patrols all the way to Azle. They routinely park at Briar but see them past Pelican Bay. Why are they in Tarrant Cty?" I've seen evidence of the same. 
  • Trump got a a little of a raw deal for being criticized for saying that those who suffer PTSD weren't as "strong" as those vets in the audience who had "seen the same things."   I know what he was trying to say. 
  • This parent got 15 years in Georgia for having a sexual relationship with her daughter's fifteen year old boyfriend? That won't win you Parent of the Year honors but that seems harsh. Especially for Georgia.
     
  • I can't believe I haven't mentioned Decatur's new motorcycle cop.  (Didn't they have bicycle cops many years back?) Suggestion: Get a second motorcycle and find your two cops most closely resembling these guys and then dress them accordingly. Then have them ride in a pair around Decatur for the week of Halloween and you might go viral. 
  • It's interesting how the coaches at Tech and at Texas have the same problem on the field but handle it completely differently. They both have atrocious defenses. Tech Coach Kliff Kingsbury deflects criticism by readily saying he has "nothing" to do with that side of the ball. UT coach Charlie Strong's reaction is to take over the defense and now have nothing to do with the successful offense. 
  • The sports radio boys were saying Jason Garrett was mad a the media yesterday during his press conference. Something was really, really wrong with him even so much that one question was, "You, OK?" But I'm making a wild sports prediction that its not the media that's bugging him, it is something negative that he learned about since the game which we'll learn about later this week.

Yeah, it's all just a bit. Except the clowns caught chasing kids with bats and sticks.

Speaking of cops in odd places, what's up with the state boys pulling people over inside Decatur city limits? I've been pulled over by a state trooper in downtown (for a taillight being out) and upon learning I had a firearm in the vehicle was asked to step out.

I'll take your Jason Garrett HSO and run with it:
The only thing that could knock Garrettbot 2.0 off his program is if owner/GM Jones told him that his BFF Romo won't be the starter when he's cleared to play in a couple of weeks

It costs too much to insure a police motorcycle and the liability for the city and taxpayer is not worth the risk.

That would have been half-assed funny, if you would have taken the 2.5 seconds it takes to do a Google search for "Ponch Poncherello". Go jump off a cliff now.

I agree with what Trump says too. It proves that people interpret things differently. Some soldiers can handle the stress and fit back into society and some don't have the STRENGTH to handle the stress and commit suicide. It's very sad. It happens in everyday life too. Some people don't have the STRENGHTH to handle personal problems. I don't know how else you say it. It's not a derogatory statement towards soldiers or others. It is what it is.

Barry, don't cut Trump any slack on his vet comments. This one might have been forgiven if it was his first, but it was piled onto a long history of disrespect towards veterans.

Dear 9:48, I don't agree with your police work, Lou. Google paunch and then think about the physique of Decatur cops. Eventually, you'll get it.

That is not what BG said, and you know it. It's also not what Trump was TRYING to say, either. Unfortunately the guy can't get a complete thought from his brain to his mouth. I saw it live, and while I raised an eyebrow, I knew what he was trying to say. Can't stand the guy, but this one is quite literally a no brainer.

Rhome is basically the Newark Police Department, unless it's lunch time, then just call Dos Chilis and ask for a Rhome cop. It's faster than dispatch. Newark residents are saving a ton of money on the backs of the Rhome taxpayer.

The clowns are the two that were riding those bikes back then. A waste of money. The next clowns are truly the DFD. Maybe they will walk around and get delt wit. Both those chiefs need to go asap. Hey tax payers, look and see where all your money is going. Do you care?

Getting a little tired of the comments about veterans from public figures who never served in the armed forces for this country.

The Texas DPS has authority to stop anyone on any road in Texas, even within city limits.

Just think you served to protect my right to free speech.

Now go back to drinking your prune juice and listening to "people-to-people" on the radio.

See 9:17's comment. Who do you think state troopers are dipshit?

Hey Rage: it is a myth that Dr Pepper contains prune juice.

@1:37 OK missed that one. But it has zero to do with Barry's post now does it dipshit?

Motorcycle cop is a bit. It does nothing for deterrence. It just makes $$$. Just like that all black patrol car that hides on 380 and writes tickets all day.

Just think what a very visible, highly marked black and white care would do to slow every one down... not just the ones you pull over to write a ticket.

Your comment did not say Barry, it said nobody. So again, you're a dipshit!

Scary clown pranks are only "overblown" if you are not the one being chased with a flame thrower or a running chain saw.

Maybe the mom thought he needed more training .
Why do speeders always --tch about getting tickets ? The color of the car don't make one go to fast !
If a veteran can't handle stress ,don't join ! After they get out the V A will mail you all the dope you had to buy bef
ore you served .
Like I always say ,when I see Mexicans living under bridges and in cardboard camps I may drag up a little sympathy !!

I'm disagreeing with you. I interpret what Trump as I said above. You interpret it your way. I had a spouse commit suicide. He didn't have the strength to handle day to day living. It was not my fault in any way. He made his choice.
