The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • How odd it is to have four young metroplex girls go missing or killed where their male friends are suspects or more: (1) The victim in the recently completed Arochi trial - never found, (2) Jackie Vandagriff, the TWU student - found dismembered and burned near Lake Grapevine, (3) Typhenie Johnson  of Fort Worth who went missing about a week ago - not found, and now (4) Zuzu Renee Verk of Keller who is/was attending Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas - not found.
  • "ZuZu" was the name of the child in It's A Wonderful Life. Several sites tell me it means "lily" which reminds me that a petal fell off  of ZuZu's flower in the movie which caused her concern. I wonder if that was a coincidence.
  • There was lots of talk yesterday that Hillary was tightening the race with Trump in Texas.  It won't happen this time, but Texas will eventually turn blue. Can you imagine four or eight years from now if Florida becomes firmly Democratic and Texas becomes "the" swing state which decides it all?
  • WBAP's Steve Lamb yesterday: "Tony Romo will come back sooner or later but we don't know when." You know, that "sooner or later" part is not necessarily true at all. 
  • I kept hearing about the Texas 11 and 12 year old Texas football team which had their "season  cut short after taking a knee". Here they are:
  • That area of Runway Bay which burned yesterday has been the general location of multiple unrelated fires over the years. (Condos, apartments, homes, etc.) And I'm not sure high winds/tornados haven't destroyed a couple of building right around there as well. It's like the Wise County Bermuda Triangle of property damage.
  • Anyone remember the Bermuda Triangle?
  • The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas wants Trump to come by and renew his vows before tonight's debates.  That place has been the site of the weddings of such famous people as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Michael Jordan, Britney Spears, and me. Decatur criminal lawyer Paul Belew was also married there. 
  • "The Legislature in 2015 approved $800 million over two years for border security and shifted the focal point of the campaign from the National Guard to the DPS, which is set to hire 250 new officers by the end of the year . . . . DPS Director Steve McCraw said the [new] $1 billion funding request for the 2018-19 budget is necessary despite competing demands for state resources. 'We wouldn’t ask for it if it wasn’t needed'." Incredible. Give it a few years and DPS will pull out of the border business but won't see its budget decreased by one dime.
  • Never forget: 
  • That "rodeo" scandal with Decatur connections has been settled per the Star-Telegram. (But even though they put the story on its front page, a link to the story is not on its home page --- a home page with a ton of links. I don't understand that.)

I think that when - not if - Texas turns blue, it will not be a swing state because by that time it will be game-over for the GOP (as it presently exists) in national elections. I don't see the current swing states (Florida, Ohio, Penn, etc.) turning "more red" in that same time frame, nor will the solidly-red states increase in population enough to add to their electoral votes. Texas will be a swing state in a manner of speaking as we go through the "purple" phase, which I expect will last quite some time. The real fun will be watching us when we eventually have competitive two-party US Senate races. Ted Cruz is doomed, perhaps in 2018 but certainly after that.

Texas is turning blue because of all of the people that are able to vote that are on government aide want to continue to get their free handouts from the democrats. Also remember that whites are now the minority in Texas. Where's our handouts for being minorities?

This is two days in a row featuring a hideous and most heinous RTG. Just show pictures of The Official LL Girl if you can't do any better than this.

DUDE. I can handle your misguided liberal leanings, but what the hell is up with today's RTG? That's nasty.

I demand a retraction.

Way to ruin the morning, BG.

Big Tex burning has to be one of the most hilarious things that I have ever witnessed live.

I don't know what you're thinking fellas, that RTG has a pretty decent mom-body. Better than anything y'all are married to, I bet. And I bet she's crazy in the sack.

Texas is turning blue because of illegal immigration. That is why Democrats support an open border regardless of what the laws are. Hispanic students in Texas public schools now make up over 50% of the student body. Those are the voters of the future.

Children = Mirrors of what they see and hear around them. That can be good or bad.

This story is neither news nor meaningful. When I start taking advice from children for all the important issues in my life, then I will listen to their political views.
Please let children be children!

The rodeo deal was settled with all getting money and vowing to never get caught again and no one admitting guilt . If it were a federal offence the feds would simply look at their deposits and 1049 's and the truth would come out . A roper explained it to me as (they do that all the time ) . So they didn't really win ? Whole lot like wrestling !

That's 250 new Troopers that will have your ass in court Barry. Your bias is humorous. Become a better lawyer rather than take out your frustration on the DPS.

Barry I know you post comments to let your readers know what the mind-set of others are, to let us know that there is still racism in the world BUT must you publish the crass and vile ones?

We all know those people are out there. The "divin in the triangle" comment is nasty and inappropriate and really serves no purpose. I mean, seriously, why? Why would you let that go through your screening process but you don't allow others?

I know you don't care but with your selectiveness on comments and objectifying women the way you do, (you are married AND have step-daughters which makes it even more oogey..) I believe I will no longer read your blog.

I agree!

It's also defamatory, and untrue.

Some people don't get perfectly good comedy (1:10). But man they'll eat at Hillary's buffet and swear they're bringing goodness to the world.

Go hang out at Geeding's blog. He's more your kind of censor.

JCA. Trump just spent a large portion of the debate admitting to being a scumbag and then saying it was Clinton's fault for not getting laws passed making it harder for him to be a scumbag.
