The Campaign For DA

10.13.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • We have a home invasion by clowns story coming out of Gainesville where the victim was reportedly shot in the face with a BB gun. I cannot begin to tell you how many red flags are in this story. Something doesn't add up. 
  • Trump has women coming out of the woodwork making accusations. That oddly doesn't seem like it should be news. I just kind of assumed they existed. 
  • The Johnson County Sheriff's Office lost a bunch of guns and ended up paying "a deputy killer's wife" $20,000. I bet the police evidence room in general is a lot more of a wheels off place than we realize.
  • "The former Texas DPS trooper who arrested Sandra Bland wants a second grand jury to reconsider his indictment." Uh, it doesn't work that way. 
  • Trump is the Republican nominee and Bob Dylan an hour or so ago won the Nobel Prize in Literature. These times they are a changin'. 
  • "I've done an informal poll of most of most of the offices in the courthouse and almost every woman is still going to vote for Trump" - A buddy of mine yesterday.
  • Strangest metaphor I heard on the radio from a caller regarding this election: "If my daughter is at the prom and she needs a ride home and there are two choices, one a guy who is known to be a speeding and reckless driver and had a car that's beaten up or, two, a guy who is known to be sexually aggressive and has alcohol on his breath, I know which one I want her to choose." I've never been more confused in my life and the talk show host, Mark Davis, was equally confused. I still don't know which one he would have chosen. 
  • Stolen from Junior Miller of The Ticket - the top five theme songs from TV: (5) MASH, (4) Magnum P.I., (3) The Rockford Files - which does sound like Styx plays it, (2) The Sopranos, (1) Sanford and Son.  That list is a total disaster. I'd start by putting the theme from Law and Order in there. 
  • We've got another missing woman story in the metroplex where some man she knew is a suspect.  
  • I wonder how we've never heard of any of the the hundreds of kids whose faces are on the posters in the front of Walmart. 
  • I hate hockey. I don't watch hockey. I'm a hockey idiot. But even I understand the crazy news from last night that Auston Matthews, the nineteen year old #1 pick for the Toronto Maple Leafs, scored four goals in his first game.
  • Speaking of magazine covers: 
  • You don't see this very often: A Dallas judge resigned "after other justices said his work had suffered and he had anger issues while battling alcoholism and depression." (He was on the verge of being removed.) It's even odder when you learn he was an appellate judge and not a trial judge.

That TV theme music list is pretty good except nothing from the Sopranos should make any list, ever, except for over rated crappy shows.

Maybe Hardcastle & McCormick instead? Simon & Simon? Rip Tide? Battlestar Galactica? Star Blazers?

About the last theme music I even thought had half an ounce of brain power put into it was King of Queens.

Missed yesterdays blog so will respond here. There was a Trump talking head on one of the news shows a few days ago. He stated that there was 200,000 less Democratic registrations in Florida, NC, PA, and Ohio than 4 years ago. When pressed he insisted that it was true. All 4 states register by party. It would be fairly simple for hackers to access the state registration databases and randomly delete Democratic registrations. The guy probably didn't know what he was talking about but it will be very interesting on election day if thousands of people show up to vote and find out they are not registered.

There was a separate theme song list that had the top 5 silly theme songs. They were (not in order): Gilligan's Island, Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, the Jeffersons, the Monkees.

I haven't read the Gainesville home invasion story yet. Can anyone tell me - is it a sad clown story or a funny clown story?

The issue at hand Barry is simple..
This election is like a stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

Every overzealous, over opinionated person here including (but not limited to) Woody, Rage and even Mzchief can refuse treatment and vote for Hillary and live as long as possible knowing inevitably they will not survive.
Take the treatment (a vote for Trump) (and it's bad) let's say chemo, lose there hair, teeth, puke up blood , be sick continually and feel death pulls every moment of everyday.
Only difference in the two (and it's slight too be sure)is with treatment you have a miniscule chance to prolong your life and some cure become available but inevitability is also at play. Therefore children, you can vote for Hillary which is absolute suicide or vote for Trump which is suicide at a decaying rate. Basically, we have No Choice here but we'll spend the remaining weeks bashing and protecting individuals that neither like us or will represent us.

The vote is simple.
Women want their second amendment rights protected so they can shoot the guys who try to grab them. So do their daddies.
Sexual predators are inevitable (amazing that y'all don't get that). Hillary's husband did it. JFK did it. Even wheelchair bound FDR did it, to a certain extent. Groping and affairs have been around since Adam and Eve left the garden.
Leave our rights alone and put Supreme Court justices in place to maintain those rights.
Those two things make Liberals go crazy. They are so simple to understand.

mzchief said...

The choice for POTUS is between Evil and Crazy. Evil has the ability to accomplish her schemes. Most of what Crazy wants to do won't happen, (because of, the whole "crazy" thing).

The DNC rigged the Democrat's selection process, so I don't really blame the Democrats for having to vote for Hillary. Their other "choice" was Bernie, a publicly proclaimed socialist, who'd never run for office, as a Democrat.

The Republicans had SIXTEEN other choices, other than Trump, FIVE of whom were PERFECTLY qualified to be POTUS, yet REPUBLICANS nominated Trump. Republicans turned their noses up at McCain and Romney and stayed home on election day, which allowed Obama to become POTUS TWO TIMES. Had as many Republicans voted for Romney as voted for McCain, Romney would have won. Now Republicans are turning their noses up at Trump and will allow Evil Hillary to win.

People have the government they deserve. Democrats stick together and support the candidate who BEST represents their ideals/party. Republicans will continue to enable Democrats to win, as long as Republicans keep waiting for a political messiah to come along to represent their ideals/party.

I've always been an Independent and vote for whomever I think will keep the other party in check. I vote in Texas where Trump is a LOCK, to win, so my vote for/against either Trump or Hillary is a waste. IF your vote won't change the outcome of which candidate wins your state, VOTE for Gary Johson, who thankfully doesn't have a hope in Hell of winning. HOWEVER, voting as an Independent for a third party will give rise to a viable third party and will force the Democrats and Republicans to get their crap together and court those who'll vote 3rd party.

1. How is that going to happen?; and
2. How is it different than when the world was going to end of we elected Obama?


Because if the end of the world means record stock market numbers and constantly improving employment, sign me up.

I know about the deficit. A deficit overseen by a Republican congress, begun by a Republican president who had a surplus when he took office after a Democratic president, that got even deeper when the Republican signed the first bailout bill and begin the framework for the second one signed by Obama, and even though Republicans have traditionally argued that deficit spending is good for the economy.

You must be one of those super Christian Republicans, you have to tell other people how to behave since you can't control/monitor your own behaviour. I ALWAYS comment as "mzchief." IF you don't like my comments don't read them. As for your bogus claim that I "come on here every day and say the same thing" indicates you're either an idiot or a liar. Not only do I not read The Blog, every day, I don't comment every day that I do read The Blog. I assume, MANY are like me and don't read The Blog and/or comments ever day soooo, yeah, I'm going to continue repeating my point. Since you don't like my comments, don't read them. It's pretty simple, Hun.

Anonymous said...

The only thing she has said about guns is that they should not be in the hands of the mentally ill. Thats it. Not once has she talked about rolling back the 2nd Amendment, nor has she ever indicated that she would even try something as illegal as a "gun grab" by an executive order that confiscated guns.

Again--this is the same paranoia that existed in 2008 with the election of Obama. Limbaugh gets on the air and talks about gun grabbing that doesn't exist and was never proposed, and all of a sudden the price of my ammo skyrockets.

And again--no more of this "if she does this" business. Show me some evidence that she will do something so bad that the country collapses. Because your bitchy little whine about gun grabs doesn't get you there. Not even close. It's so completely removed from reality that a sane person cannot believe that it is a real issue.

The working women in the courthouse poll aren't going to admit voting for Hillary! But they will think about how creepy Trump actions were when he saw young beauty contestants naked in their dressing rooms, the weird comments he made about his daughter and the genital grabbing remarks he made in 2005! He brags about sexual conquests and is proud of his Playboy image. He idolized James Bond and Hugh Hefner! So I'm sure the women will think about the other women who came forward yesterday, proof Trump spoke the truth to Billy Bush in the video. Before going to vote, the working courthouse women will vote for basic human decency and that everything our kids are seeing and hearing our not o.k.. For all that voted Trump in the primary, you have only yourself to blame for the disgraceful nominee!
