The Campaign For DA

10.26.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Former NFL player Dennis Byrd died last week. He was famously paralyzed for a time after an on the field which  at the time, as Sports Illustrated recounted, the first player to speak to him was Bridgeport's own Kyle Clifton. 
  •                         
  • There was a story making the rounds yesterday of a Whataburger mascot being a girl's Homecoming date. That's a planted, paid ad. Someone check the girl's family tree and see if anyone is associated with Whataburger's PR department. 
  • I didn't realize Boyd was having a beer and wine election.  At this point, why not? 
  • Frisco building four schools but not having the money to open them is beyond bizarre. 
  • Losing my desire to care about professional sports is something I wish never happened. But it finally dawned on me it makes no sense.  I can be entertained by a professional sport, but I no longer care who wins. I think age 35 was my point of transition. 
  • I might be out of pocket this morning as I tend to Mrs. LL who is having, uh, what I will refer to as the "Katie Couric Procedure." There will be no live telecast.
  • There was fake news about voter fraud in Tarrant County yesterday. Get back to me after 11/8 and tell me the Democrats won in Tarrant County via voter fraud. 
  • In this day and time when you can watch any type of entertainment on any type of platform, why is the only place you can watch Tower, the documentary on the UT shooting, is at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for three days in early December? Put it online and I'd buy it. 
  • I just learned this week that I have mispronounced "gyro" all my life. Fortunately, I think I've only said it three times. 
  • Man, Megyn Kelly of Fox News and Newt Gingrich got into it last night. Gingrich told her she was "fascinated by sex" (her expression was great) and she ended the interview telling him he could go work on his anger issues. (Political advice: A man berating a woman and mentioning sex is not exactly what the GOP needed right now.) 
  • Remember Wendy Davis? 
  • The ex-wife of Jared Fogle sued Subway and alleged on Monday that the sandwich chain knew about its former spokesman's interest in minors as early as 2004 but didn’t do anything to stop it. Am I missing something? Why is she suing? I think I missed that class that says an employer is liable to the spouse of an employee for not telling the spouse her husband is a bad guy. 
  • The former producer of Mark Davis' radio show is a Never Trumper as she reiterated last night. 
  • Whatever happened to Kay Bailey Hutchinson?
  • I'm a baseball idiot and looked up last night at the World Series game to see a pitcher for the Cubs with "Wood" on his jersey. My gut reaction was "Is that Kerry Wood?" whom I quickly discovered retired in 2012. Random news: While paddle boarding the next year near Chicago, Wood came upon a dead body the next year.

Katie Couric Procedure????


Hmmmm.

Removing her upper lip?
Removing her brain?
Adding the ability to ask stupid questions??
Overlooking facts??


What other procedure did Katie Couric have?

For school districts, there is a difference in how capital expenditures and operation expenditures are treated. It can make perfect sense to build a school based on expectation of demand and budget situations, and then start operations at a later date. There is nothing "beyond bizarre" about it. ALL SCHOOLS are built first, then occupied afterwards. If they sit for a few months, so what? It's a high growth area, looks like they plan ahead. How bizarre.

Heard more detail on the Subway story yesterday. She's suing because they covered up some trouble to keep her from finding out because his Subway handler thought "she grounded him" and they didn't want her to leave him. That's why she is suing.

8:42, that still doesn't mean she has a case. To win, she would have to establish that Subway owed her some kind of duty to tell her what they knew. I'm thinking if fast food chains owe ANY of us a duty to tell us the truth, they would all be in bankruptcy.

And there's Gingrich, one of he others MzChief thinks would have been acceptable as president. He started the GOP down the path that led to Trump, and is now defending him.

That's thebmoral majority, party of damily values for you. A man who was forced to resign as speaker of the house, who left his wife for another woman while his wife was battling cancer, defending an admitted sexual predator and adulterer.

Can Wordkyle remind me about he definition of conservative, please?

If you pronounce it "hero," people in this area will think you are crazy. I think the confusion is from "gyroscope."

Perhaps if you started looking for Kay Bailey Hutchison, you'd realize that maybe you're looking for the wrong person

If you say the word "gyro" five times in front of a mirror...well, not much happens. You might see the start of a uni-brow and get a craving for yogurt sauce.

Whataburger has a mascot?! And he's modeled after an orange Power Ranger?

According to 9:16, Mrs LL and Couric have prostates?

8:39, The Frisco ISD has already admitted they have a shortage of expected funds to open the schools. they were not meant to sit idle. More to the point, why do superintendents in our state not have any business experience? They are teachers that went on to get principal and administrative "certificates". Our school districts in this state are mostly a mess of misappropriated funds.

The last time I saw Kay Bailey Hutchison in the news she was watching the Dallas city council ban the Exxxotica sex expo from the Dallas convention center. She was sitting with Ray Hunt.

KBH then resumed kissing up and pissing down which she is wont to do.

I used to call KBH, The Slapper, because she was accused of striking and pinching a subordinate or subordinates.

"...fake news...". I couldn't tell for sure, maybe that one you cited is not legit. Those certainly exist. There are many reports of acts by the Clinton campaign, the news media, the elections process, etc. that seem to be absolutely legit. I think you are too absorbed into the defense attorney/legal world in which you live if all that is not an issue to you until someone can prove to you beyond a reasonable doubt that "...tell me the Democrats won in Tarrant County via voter fraud."
Saying it another way, I am surprised at your lack of concern re these improprieties until it can be proved to you that a candidate won an election because of them. That is, that improprieties are OK as long as they seem to account for only 3% of the vote, if the candidate won by a larger %.

wordkyle said...

914 - Can Wordkyle remind me about he definition of conservative, please? - The definition's not relevant. You call others "the party of family values" (corrected) but what you insist on is "the party of perfection 100% of the time." At least Conservatives have values. Even if we don't always live up to them, we still strive to. ("A man's reach should exceed his grasp...") Liberals insist on there being no values. That way they can commit any sin and it aligns with their philosophy. Liberals can count on never being called a hypocrite.

If you have values and violate them regularly or justify ignoring them, then you have no values.

Think about that for a while.

Good for Mrs. LL! In all seriousness, this should be lesson to the rest of Barry's Blog followers. Get your colonoscopy, prostate exam, PSA test, mammogram, and cardiac stress test on the recommended schedules, ladies & gents. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

My two cents on the Frisco school fiasco. It is similar to the situations that many area school districts have faced in the past few years. Public education money has disappeared from the state. It is pretty obvious that the current tea party state leaders are trying to stare public education into submitting to "school choice".
Specifically about Frisco...believe it or not, they have the one of the lowest property tax rates in the DFW area. This, combined with being a great school district, has caused Frisco to explode with growth. With that growth, comes the need for more infrastructure. That includes schools. The growth of Frisco outpaced the growth of the schools. They built the schools to accommodate that growth but the homeowners that moved into Frisco refused to increase their property taxes in order to staff and run those new schools. I know the trend is to oppose those school bond proposals but this is a shining example of the consequences of a bond not passing. There literally is no money to run those new schools. So they're going to sit.

FYI...Kay Bailey Hutchinson was most recently the president of Texas Exes - The University of Texas at Austin's Alumni Group

Problem with the Frisco ISD issue is, they had the money to give $15 million to 'The Star', but, don't have the money to open new schools.

What ever happened to Kay Bailey Hutchinson? Are you serious? Maybe check her twitter feed or something. She is far from a "whatever happened to" type of person.

mzchief said...

For the record, I NEVER said Newt Gingrich would be "acceptable as president." I did say the Republicans picked Trump from 16 other candidates who were "more acceptable than Trump." (Allow me to explain for the dimwit at 9:14. It means that Trump was the absolute worst possible candidate.) Unlike Trump, Gingrich knows how the government works, has a working understanding of the US Constitution and has proven to be able to work with BOTH sides of the aisle.

Personally, I'm glad to see the Republican party tanking. Republicans claim to believe in personal liberty, small government and that Americans have the right to live their lives without government intrusion. However, Republicans believe it's their right/duty to dictate who marries whom, what substances people put into their bodies and regulate what a woman can do with her body. Republicans believe THEY alone have the moral authority to dictate what is right/wrong due to their "Christian" faith. All the while, the hypocrites pass judgment on other people when they themselves think nothing of violating THEIR religion's dogma.

Screw the Republicans, the reason we have Trump, as the only option to Hillary, is because the 'tards picked Trump.
