The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • It's Friday after Thanksgiving. #ImStillTheHardestWorkingManInShowBusiness
  • Below is a graphic from a couple of years back when a district court judge made the ruling. On Wednesday, Texas highest criminal court agreed and overturned the life in prison sentence.  I almost want to yell, "Lock her up! Lock her up!"
  •                              
  • In other false conviction news, the court also set aside the convictions of the "San Antonio Four" -- an incredible case you've probably never hear of.
  • In other news that fell through the cracks, Greg Abbott paid no taxes in 2015. Think about that: The man, who has lived his entire life off of a lawsuit settlement (he was hit by a tree which fell because trees die) and has lived off of your tax dollars, paid no taxes. 
  • I should get a better accountant. 
  • In the end, Hillary will beat Trump by almost 2.1 million votes. 
  • I watched a little bit of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time in a long time. It's more of a variety show than a parade. And one long advertisement. 
  • Florence Henderson ("Carol Brady") has died. 
  • Football thought: Terrence Williams TD catch yesterday confused me. I think I'm right in believing that it's not only if he had two feet in bounds but where the ball was when it happened. It was very probably a touchdown, but no one talked about that. (Let's use this example: If he had been standing in the end zone but had his hands extended back over the goal line into the playing field and catches the ball and then were to be tackled back into the playing field, that's not a touchdown. Right?)
  • There was a false start in the game as well and Mrs. LL immediately said, "Was he drawn offsides?" That scared me. 
  • The Frankenstein commercial was great in concept but poorly done. 
  • I watched Philadelphia a couple of days ago and was shocked about my perception of what I thought of it when it came out in theaters and now (And someone at the Ticket needs to pull Denzel Washington's cross examination of a guy as he yells, "Are you gay!!!???" with that Norm Hitzges drop.)
  • The loss of the Aggie/Longhorn game on Thursday night is a big loss. 
  • The media keeping government in check is the most important right/aspect of our society. And once the press goes away, which we are seeing with "fake news" and Trump's view that they are "not nice", we will end up in Idiocracy far more quickly than Mike Judge ever dreamed of. 
  • Mitt Romney is probably the most decent human being to ever to run for President. And if you oppose his potential appointment by Trump because he called out Trump for not being a decent human being, you need to check yourself. 
  • The California mom who went missing while jogging a month ago has been found safe. That is one weird story which makes no sense.

Do we live in the same world? Probably not.

"The media keeping government in check is the most important right/aspect of our society."

I agree with you if that is what actually happens. The media picks sides. They are in bed with government. They were in bed with Hillary. The overwhelming majority of media espouses the liberal agenda.

This world you think exists today has been gone for a long time.

Your welcome

Paid NO taxes? What a lie. Property taxes and sales taxes are taxes. And I doubt many that look at this blog have paid as much in federal income tax as he has the past few years, or donated as much to charity.

The San Antonio Four case was an absolute old fashion witch hunt..I suspect eventually Texas is going to be paying these women a about 6 million dollars for time spent...but I'm thinking they can find a way to lower that. There are many cases like this, I am sure. I know of a person who spent almost 15 years..innocent but found guilty. If you don't have a good attorney you will go to jail.

Yes Barry, you were wrong about the election because your view of the world is skewed by fake news. Just for a moment imagine what else you may be wrong about.

Your view of the world is incorrect because you believe what the corrupt media has told you. Instead of questioning, you prefer to play power games.

Are you really as ignorant as you come across on this blog?

From the article, looks like the guy paid a lot in taxes, actually. Not sure where "no taxes" comes from by anyone that actually read the linked article. You get to deduct things from federal taxes, even if you are a governor.

Aggies are cowards. They've had several opportunities to play Texas and have run every single time. You'd think they would welcome the opportunity to play Texas given the state of the program in Austin, but they always cower.

Today's blog post is in the running for the most blatantly biased/woefully blind posts of all time.

"Abbott paid no taxes." - What are you mad about? That he used legal deductions properly? (It's in the first paragraph of the story.) And those deductions are partially based on property taxes that he paid. Do Democrats claim no deductions?

"Hillary will beat Trump" - Nope. She lost the only game that mattered. She got more votes in a few states. You're trying to imply that the Cleveland Indians won the world series because they had more hits.

"The media keeping government in check is the most important right/aspect of our society." - You on the Left lost the ability to comment on such things long ago. The mainstream media has been a blatant Democrat organ for decades. Obama was not only never challenged by, but has been actively aided and abetted by the media ever since he announced he was running for president. "The media keeping government in check" is like the code of ethics for lawyers or doctors -- the way things used to be, and the way it ought to be.

I'm not sure what tot honk about the David Temple case. I've always had questions, but that alternate suspect angle was well developed by the defense. Buddy of mine writes a blog and knows the ins and outs. You can probably search his posts on it here:

Rage, Here is a little bitch slap of reality for you before you get back the french fry cooking. They pay sales tax but not income tax. They don't pay the hospitals that have to treat them or deliver their anchor babies. They don't buy insurance, therefore leaving you holding the bag when they get drunk and crash into you. They punish the quality of education your child receives by having the teacher to spend more time with them to teach them english. I could go on but lunch hour is coming and those fries aren't going to cook themselves.

Skippy, you have no problem with locking her up but you do have a problem with us calling for Hillary to be locked up when she ignored the call for security many times from our men in Benghazi which she was totally responsible for their deaths? You're one fine lily livered liberal weenie!!!

Trump's only means of defense is twitter, he has no friends in the press and no way to spin anything in the media. It's the entire free press against his administration! Explain to me again how government power is about to run amok under him?

My theory on this is that liberals are fearing payback since you all watched Obama run a super secret administration and wield his power by Executive order, end arounding congress, creating special powers, and having full control of the media. You liked it when your guy had the power, but down deep you feared the precedence he was setting. Ironic thing is Trump doesn't have the one thing you need to keep the public in the dark....control of the media.

Not only did Romney call out Trump, he failed to support him, in essence supporting Hillary. We don't need people like him on our ticket but he would fit right in with the weenies.

A decent president would call or send a letter of condolences to the members of families of slain police officers by black thugs. Oh wait, Trump did that and he's not even president yet but Obammy is. And a decent president would call for the snowflakes, cupcakes and Soros paid rioters to stop the violence instead of encourage them.

Congrats, Barry!

You finished second to Greg Lowery in the district attorney's race and you finished a strong second to Brandon Davis in the Wise County Turkey of the Year vote.

Once again congrats to our boy, Barry!

I have heard a little of the story about the San Antonio lesbians. Why does the State owe them anything? The jury heard the evidence that was not cooked by the prosecutor and convicted them. Because one of the alleged victims lied does not mean the State did anything wrong. If that is the case then the State would be bankrupt. What percent of the take do the ambulance chasers get?

I think we'd make a lot more progress if we could all admit we are ignorant. The news problem would sort itself out - if the American people truly desired truth. We may profess to want this, but we want sensation, and we want it as fast as you can get it to us. We don't want to learn or listen, we want to say our point as quickly as someone at Thanksgiving dinner will allow it. And then we want to call others ignorant when they don't believe the "shadows on the cave wall" bullshit we spout.

Happy Thanksgiving

You have a twisted sense of justice.

Bottom line, the DA cheated. If the DA had NOT cheated and the ladies were convicted, so be it, but cheating by the DA voids the decison of the jury and punishment assested and opens the state to paying retribution.

Who cares, that's not the way elections have been decided since our incredibly intelligent founding fathers set up the electoral college preventing a few populous states from deciding for the entire county.
