The Campaign For DA

10.25.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I used to ask people if they recognized the vacation spot by looking at the background in the pic of the Random Thought Girl. Anyone? 
  • Oh, Walmart: 
  • A middle school teacher in Cedar Hill was arrested for a double murder in Fort Worth. Almost no facts have been released but I'm guessing that it is far from a cut and dry case. It involved a neighbor dispute, police originally detained a different person, the teacher wasn't arrested until the next day, and the teacher is a 13 year Air Force vet. (Side note: Fox 4 told me this morning that the victims had not been identified. The incident took place on Sunday! The ME's office would have published the names within hours. Heck, a 22 year old Azle man was shot and killed last night and we already know his name.)
  • Whether you agree with it or not, the interactive and constantly updated map of the projected winner of each state by FiveThirtyEight.com is fascinating. It doesn't take long to understand how the presidential election is all about a handful of states and which ones they are.
  • If Florida goes to Hillary, I bet every network will project her as the President the second that state's polls close. It could be a very early night -- as in 7:00 p.m. (Did you know Florida covers two time zones?)
  • There's a long read in D Magazine that looks interesting: Dr. Death - "Plano surgeon Christopher Duntsch left a trail of bodies. The shocking story of a madman with a scalpel."
  • I couldn't have named the lead singer of Dead or Alive (Pete Burns) who died yesterday, and I certainly didn't know he looked like this:
  • I'd like to know the amount of the settlement received by Ebola nurse Nina Pham. The lawsuit was a bit iffy to start with and her damages seem small (she's been healthy and back at work for a long time now.). I bet it's not that much. 
  • Former Tech coach Mike Leach had a hot sports opinion on Cubs fans: "Every yuppie with a BMW or some special attachment to its computer or some designer set of jeans or something like that is a Cubs fan, and refers to it as ‘my Cubbies'."
  • My nemesis Sheriff Joe may finally get beat in two weeks. 
  • I'm not real sure why a criminal defense lawyer running for DA is worthy of Texas Monthly's attention. That happens all the time. The fact that he's a Democrat and could beat a long time Republican incumbent is the story. 
  • I don't know what to take from the record breaking early voting that we are seeing.

Early voting befor they fix the crooked voting machines . Trump is going to win and Killery will have one of her (spells) when he does..

Hillary blamed the 94 rout on a "vast right wing conspiracy".
Can we start taking wagers on the naming/labeling on this one?
"Mass deplorable hysteria" or "xenophobic catatonic stupor"?
Sure it will be some scorched earth, colorful description for demonstrating her true love for the electorate.

Two world class economists run into each other at a polling place.

"What are you doing here?" asks one.

"My wife made me come," the other replies.

The first economist gives a confirming nod, "Mine, too."

After a mutually sheepish moment one of them hatches a plan: "If you promise never to tell anyone you saw me here, I'll never tell anyone I saw you." They shake hands, finish their polling business and scurry off.

Economists know that voting is a waste of time. STANDING IN LINE FOR TWO HOURS TO VOTE IS ABSURD.

Bobby Vee died Monday. He had hits in the early 1960's including "Take Good Care of My Baby" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes". Bob Dylan played in Vee's band before Joan Baez discovered him and invited him on stage one night.

That was back when music was about love, lost love, life experiences, and other ballads of real life.

I realize that. It was the revulsion the electorate after the Arkansas rapist and his enabler tore into the country with the ATF and her dream of socialistic medicine.
It was lovingly referred to as the Limbaugh rout.

Hillary's VP pick draws 30 people to his rally. That includes the press that follows him(can you imagine having that job?) and Trump draws 20 thousand in Florida. You might want to tap the brakes on the media calling the election for Hillary, Skippy.

RTG - I'm sure her body was discovered in the wooded area not far from there after the pic was taken.

Early Voting - Happens every election. All the white people run up there and vote for a conservative the first few days. Then the machines are tampered with and the Libs and dead Libs go in vote a few times and WIN!!!

Rigged the last few elections.

i'm disappointed there was no mention of the voting machine in Arlington that was, as of yesterday, reportedly changing Trump votes to Clinton votes. If there's even a nugget of truth to that Trump's "the election is rigged" motto is going to start gaining a lot of traction.

Anonymous said...

So, you are aware, then, that this particular election cycle seems to be trending Democrat, despite recent mid-term gains by Republicans?

In other words, this jackass that you've championed to lead Republicans has torn you apart on a national scale, and even down ballot in many places. Texas may be one of them. Arizona and N. Carolina are others. Georgia may be one.

Holy shit, y'all are idiots.

Michael Berry has had numerous callers out of the Houston vicinity calling in this morning saying that although they are voting straight R--the machines are autofilling straight R except for the Presidential--they are having to go back and correct the top slot to get it to accept by re-spinning the wheel.
"Nothing to see here folks--move along".

Hey dumb ass RAGE. If TRENDING actually means something, know that it means 'controlled marketing' on behalf of the media.


With all the F'n illegals brought into TX in the last 3 years, is it a wonder that Hillary will win?

I will use my cell phone camera to record my voting. Then when it switches from Trump to Hillary, and I have it recorded, I will sell it to Hillary's campaign. Then, they will try to kill me............wait....this is a bad idea.

Please remember the following Texas rules in voting area behavior:

A person commits an offense if, during the voting period and within 100 feet of an outside door through which a voter may enter the building in which a polling place is located, the person: (1) loiters; or (2) electioneers for or against any candidate, measure, or political party. The entity that owns or controls a public building being used as a polling place may not, at any time during the voting period, prohibit electioneering on the building's premises outside of the area described in Subsection (a), but may enact reasonable regulations concerning the time, place, and manner of electioneering. "Electioneering" includes the posting, use, or distribution of political signs or literature. An offense under this section is a Class C misdemeanor. (Tex. Elections Code Ann. § 61.003)

This covers your Hillary t-shirt and Trump hat also. And you camera phone proofers, please be aware that photography inside the election area is also verboten in Texas.

Thank you for playing Texas Election Roulette.

"Rigged Voting machines" = voter error. The same story which is almost word for word is being recycled by bloggers and fringe "news" sites but there is no real proof. Tarrant county has stated this is false. Don't vote straight ticket if you are concerned - click each one and double check.

This hoax was probably started by Trump's people so he can say "See - I told you it was rigged!" instead of "Damn. I lost."

Anonymous said...

3:56 says: Crazy Trump took the conservative Party to the Populist Party and will lose to progressives. Refusing to continue to raise money for down ballot Republicans, he has betrayed the GOP by not using a data base, charging 3 times for rent for office space in his buildings, charging for the use of his airplane and now demeaning GOP candidates. And by the way, he never funded his campaign, spending only $55 million (as a loan to the GOP). The Senate is at risk so all concerned about replacing with conservative judges can blame the alt-right nominee and Breitbart! The GOP may not recover in time for 2018! In the meantime the corrupt (anyone in office for over 20 years is corrupt) is still raising millions for the Democrats! Trump isn't a team player but Hillary is!
6:45 Did you read the publisher editorial comments about not voting for Trump? A populist divides the party. No liberal is to blame, a house divided will not stand!
