The Campaign For DA

10.18.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Big 12 Expansion: Texas and OU are at a bad dinner party with the Big 12 and are just buying their time until they leave. And then expect to hear they got a quickie divorce themselves.
  • We've got a fake clown on a lawn in Decatur with the sign "Free Hugs" above it. We support funny current events humor.
  • Did you see the insane dripping-blood-finger from pitcher Trevor Bauer during last night's ALCS? I heard this morning that the umpires may not have had a right to keep him from playing. I could actually be an idiot on that -- I have no idea.
  • Time magazine lost its mind yesterday.
  • No one outside of their teens should utter the words "throw shade."
  • "Does this microphone work?" - Jason Garrett yesterday getting frustrated with QB questions. The Dak/Romo discussion has already given me Tired Head as well. 
  • For a while there was a rash of motorcycle deaths and wrong way drivers in the metroplex. It's picked up again with one on Central this morning where the wrong-way driver, identified as Lauren Cordova, 27, died along with the other car's driver, Hussein Zaybek, 23. There was a combination of both in Rowlett two days ago involving a motorcycle going the wrong way and colliding with a car.  Then there was the passenger motorcycle death in Fort Worth on early Saturday morning. 
  • Late yesterday, a Wise County jury was -- for the first time to my knowledge --assessing punishment for Possession of Marijuana < 2 ounces, a Class B misdemeanor. (I think it was a guilty plea.) Court records this morning show that he was sentenced to 180 days in jail but that the sentence was probated by that same jury. The probation term is for one year. I don't see  a fine as being part of the punishment.  (Court costs will run around $300, probation fees $720, and a multi-hour "drug class" to get his license back which for some reason is suspended by the State because of any drug conviction. And I'm leaving out some other fees, costs and hoops.)
  • I'm not sure I understand Hillary doing a one week ad buy in Texas. I would understand it if the buy had been done by DNC or some Democratic SuperPAC with the ads focusing on  Dallas, Houston, El Paso, and Austin because those are places Democrats lower down on the ballot can win. 
  • We've got a six week trend of NFL ratings being much lower than past years.  Could Mark Cuban have possibly been right when he said the NFL was "greedy" and "Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered"?
  • Let's check in on a Trump rally in Green Bay yesterday and pray this all ends soon:
  • Moment of silence for Billy Bush. 
  • The most recent text you sent is now your presidential campaign slogan. Go.

Re Wise County MJ case--Jury assessed 180 days in jail suspended with probation (judge set 12 month length and the terms), and assessed a $200 fine that was not suspended.

Shame on Billy Bush! Melani Trump blames him for egging him on in the tape but she said she has two boys at home. She doesn't want to move out of Trump Tower into the White House. If Billy Bush can egg on Trump and if he is a "boy", he is too weak to be the leader of the free world!

...just buying their time...

Are you playing Mr. Malaprop, or are you that ignorant of your native language?

Taking a knee with Colin Kaepernick is hurting the ratings?

Could Mark Cuban have possibly been right when he said the NFL was "greedy"

And NBA owners are not greedy? How many NBA season tickets have you purchased in the last 5 years? They're f*cking expensive to a poor boy like me who grew up with nothin. You don't know from shinola.

YOU COULD ACTUALLY BE AN IDIOT? I DON'T BELIEVE IT GREEN. YOU SHOULD BUY SOME TIME TO THINK ABOUT THAT STATEMENT.

BloodFinger:
Bodily fluids in general can't be the issue. Players are spitting non-stop all over the place. But in the case of blood, that's when the umps should be able to cite it as a safety (health) concern, not only for the bleeding player, but for themselves and all other players. They could also make the call if there's a foreign substance introduced onto the ball.
You see football officials send players to the sideline any time there's blood visible.

Why in the hell would a court get that worked up over that small amount of weed? Seriously - the guy had enough for himself, not to sell to underage, not to cause anyone else problems. It's already legal in other places and the medical community is quickly getting on board with marijuana. I understand "it's against the law", but only so because it's more profitable that way. Fine the guy $100 for breaking the law and let him go on his way.

How do we (in Texas) get this law changed?

All dead people that vote are democrats.

Hate to tell you buddy, but by green lighting everything you say, Barry has made us all ignore everything you say. You may as well stick a fork in your all caps schtick. It's done.

I bet you get more readers on Wrodkye's blog.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about. But trust me.... You don't. I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

Re: Those throwing shade on Billy Bush....bunch of hypocrites
RTG: yikes...
Time/father: If in case the kid is not totally messed up, let's make sure by taping this awful moment
NFL ratings: Game are too darn long....if you watch two games on Sunday it will consume 8 hours of your day.

I want to make myself sound smart like you. I want to know what I'm talking about, like you. Lastly, I want to be a girl like Rage.

Gimme some sugar.

When the NFL gets in the business of telling it's fans what to think, who to vote for, and not to respect our National Anthem...yeah, their days are numbered. Time to slaughter that hog!!!
