The Campaign For DA

10.05.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts




  • Bass Pro Shop buying Cabelas can't possibly help lower the prices of outdoor stuff.  (And just how exactly will this impact the value of my very used kayak?)
  • A side product of the Clown Scare of 2016 is learning the public's shocking belief on what they think the government can do. For example on the radio yesterday the afternoon boys thought it was "illegal" to wear a clown suit in a park and considered it to be a "good question" as to whether police will outlaw clown outfits for Halloween.  It's a default belief that the government can do anything it wishes. 
  • Within hours of the Kim Kardashian alleged robbery, I was on here questioning it. Well, I'm on the verge of becoming the hardest working and most trusted man in show business because even Fox News ran a story yesterday saying the whole thing "raises some eyebrows." (This comes on the heels of me sniffing out the Ryan Lotche lie before anyone.)
  • The was supposed to be a blockbuster interview on CBS this morning of the former Baylor Title IX officer who has sued the university. It turned out to be a big bag of nothing.
  • During the VP debate last night, the candidates argued for a time whether Hillary or Trump had been "meaner."
  • But GOP VP nominee Mike Pence did manage to get #ThatMexicanThingAgain trending on Twitter for saying "You whipped out that Mexican thing again."

  • And he said that on National Taco Day. 
  • Police unions in DFW sure are flexing their muscles for money and power: The Arlington Police Association has sued the city claiming that the police department is putting restrictions on their recruitment of newly hired officers to join the union. Fort Worth Police Association has filed a grievance about the police departments "lateral hire" policy (basically they are saying lateral hires are taking promotions from officers in the union).  And the Dallas Police Association has been constantly making news for demanding more money since the ambush.
  • When Fox's Joe Buck, during the Cowboy game, frantically threw it to Vin Scully's last call I don't think that Scully's call was live at all. 
  • Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson said yesterday that his lack of geographical knowledge is a plus because "you can't get into a war with a country you can't find."  After laughing at that, I began to embrace its simple truth.
  • There is an announcement in the Update for a 1,000 home development on the east side of Rhome. Is it south of 287? If so, I think I know the owner. 
  • I'll admit that I didn't know that if none of the candidates are able to obtain more than 50% of the electoral votes then the House of Representatives decides the Presidency. (And then each state's representatives get to cast one collective vote for the entire state.)  You know, you get a third party candidate grabbing a couple of states some day and that could easily happen. 
  • As the regular baseball season ends, consider this: Josh Hamilton made $28.41 million and C.J. Wilson made $20 million for literally not playing at all. And Prince Fielder made $24 million and Alex Rodriguez $20 million for essentially not playing.
  • On The Ticket this morning, they read a letter from a criminal defense lawyer who is in the Collin County jail waiting to go to TDC to serve a five year sentence. He said he practiced law in Collin, Dallas, and Tarrant Counties before being sentenced for practicing law without a license after his license was suspended. Who is this? (He wants to provide weekly reports on what his experience in prison is like. Dear Ticket: Do it.)
  • Said it for years: America loves talking about a hurricane's path.

"... you can't get into a war with a country you can't find." - It's illustrative that you're impressed. You can sure bet that our enemies know where to find us.

Pence didn't defend Trump, he was running for President 2020! Eric Trump said in the "spin room" that Pence did a great job representing the family! Now I guess that is important to the voters!

Fielder had 370 plate appearances and A-Rod had somewhere around 250. That's a long way from hardly playing.

HEY RACE BAITER GREEN - ALL YOU GOT OUT OF THAT DEBATE WAS PENCE MANAGED TO GET THE MEXICAN THING TRENDING?

YOU CONSIDERING A CAREER IN LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW HOSTING?
ONLY THOSE DIPSHITS WATCH FOR COMEDY(SUBJECTIVE)FODDER.

ONE OF THOSE TWO IDIOTS WILL BECOME VP, MEXICANS WILL CONTINUE TO FLOW ACROSS THE UNPROTECTED BORDER REGARDLESS OF THE(ANTI)MEXICAN STATEMENT AND PARTY POLITICIANS WILL CONTINUE TO SELL YOUR ASS DOWN THE RIVER.

YOU HOWEVER COULD ONLY FIND THE MOST LIBERAL, MOST ANTI-REPUBLICAN KANE-LIKE PISSCOCKERY TO THROW INTO YOUR MORNING COMEDY ROUTINE?

NO DAMN WONDER TRUMP IS LEADING IN THE POLLS AGAIN, THANKS GREEN -GOOD WORK..

Rhome 1000 home subdivision has to be Vinson Ranch.

105.3 the Fan (far superior to the Ticket) has been doing a prison letter bit for years and it is pure gold!

Five years in prison for practicing law without a license??? That seems a bit much.

Dear ALL CAPS person. Please, please,turn off the caps lock. I think I agree with you on a lot of things. I just can't bear to read it through to find out.

When you lose the audience to win a point, is it really worth it?

Yes. Go away.
Not about to read that all caps stuff

9:22 "Pence didn't defend Trump"
That is a point some liberal talking head came up with while desperately trying to find something to criticize Pence about because he performed so well. When Kaine had his 2 minutes to respond to a question, he repeatedly went off the subject of the question that was posed to him and went on rants of making multiple allegations that were simply the talking points he preplanned to say. In his 30 seconds given to respond, Pence expertly chose the easy, low hanging fruit which Kaine gave him, responding to Kaine's statements which were the most ridiculous, and didn't have time to get to the subjects that would have been more difficult. The moderator gave Kaine the opportunity to put the pressure on Pence, but Kaine was unable to do it.

9:54 "Everyone hates unions until it comes to fire and police ones."
We love fire and police personnel and the job they do for us, but we still hate the overall results that the unions produce. The good that comes from unions could be accomplished in a better way, and much reduce the bad stuff.

Vinson ranch is not east of Rhome. Think it is just north of 114 before you cross over 287

Yesterday Spanky reported that a mom got 15 years for satisfying a 15 yr old male. That's excessive. 5 years is not enough

Y'all realize with your pleas to turn off the all caps that you're just egging him on, right? This goes back to elementary school lessons people - if somebody's being a brat just ignore them and eventually they'll stop.

Cabela's being acquired by Bass Pro is sad--and Trump is right.
Cabela's did offer on most categories of products two options. One being the top tier product either made in the US or some other country known for quality--
Or, the cheap gook made crap that Bass Pro loves to peddle.
Can guess where this headed.

Not Sam.

11:28, the police unions fight for more police hiring. How is that bad?

I used to get some bargains in the basement of the Cabelas in downtown Sidney, Nebraska before they moved out on the highway.

All caps will ignore your request because like his fearless egomaniac leader he cares for no-one but himself.
