The Campaign For DA

11.07.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • A Texas DPS Trooper has been suspended pending an investigation after stopping two teenage girls for speeding coming home from a concert. After discovering "one pill" both were arrested and, while at the jail, it was discovered they both had nipple rings. So, according to the girls, he attempted to remove the piercings with his own pair of pliers. This is really mind-blowing. 
  • Yes, that was a Baylor disaster against TCU. And it doesn't help when the assistant coaches took a shot at the incompetent Board of Regents the night before the game on Twitter.  That wasn't Baylor vs. TCU. That was a civil war of Baylor Football vs. Board of Regents.
  • Art Briles might be guilty of something. He might not. The problem is that this thing has been so ridiculously handled that we don't know. The closest we got was that the Wall Street Journal said he "learned" of one of the assaults. But we don't know who he learned it from and it was well after the assault had already been reported to others in authority who were in a position to do something. But who knows. And therein lies the problem. 
  • I said the other day to invest in Drones and Virtual Reality. After tomorrow's elections, I want to add another: Legal edible marijuana products. There's money to be made.
  • My dad says that he recalls when juries in Texas weren't selected at random from voter registration or drivers license lists. Instead, four or five folks were called in to hand select those who would come in for a jury panel. 
  • Wow: Before 1954, females were not allowed on juries in Texas. 
  • At the request of the Eighth Grader In The House, we watched the new Ghostbusters over the weekend. Verdict: It is horrible. And when they made the rare clever joke, they would then explain it to you. 
  • I watched one episode, Nosedive, of Black Mirror. I love that series. It's a chilling insight as to where we are headed.
  • Mark Cuban has revoked the credentials of two local ESPN reporters who cover the Mavericks. That guy is unhinged and is almost a mini-Trump.
  • There is a Letter to the Editor this week in the Messenger complaining about a local bookstore placing atheist and agnostic books next to the Christian books. She blamed "political correctness" because they used to be kept "under the counter" where they belonged. Uh, what year is this? 
  • A guy got rushed out of a Trump rally after an assassination scare. (There wasn't one.) He was causing a ruckus and later claimed to be a "Never Trump" guy. Then I saw him interviewed and he said he had donated and voted for Hillary.  I guess that technically makes him "Never Trump" but not exactly what the term means.
  • Former Attorney General Janet Reno has died. I remember her for ordering this:
  • Or this:
  • The Ticket sent Gordon Keith for a "man on the street" type interview on Friday morning at the Texas Motor Speedway where campers had gathered for the race. He talked to two nine year olds who said that Hillary was "evil", was going to "take away the Internet" and "separate the whites and blacks." Oh, my. 
  • Once you learn about the "Mannequin Challenge" I hope you conclude it is stupid. (The Cowboys did it and TCU did it.)
  • Wrong way driver over the weekend:
  • WBAP's Brian Estridge this morning on ISIS encouraging American Muslims not to vote tomorrow: "Not a bad idea." And on the organization's threat for violence: "Be on the look out for any Middle Easterner with a backpack at Spencer's at the mall." Incredible. 
  • Some say Jerry Jones will replace Prescott with Romo once they get to the playoffs because of Romo's experience. Dumbest thing I've ever heard. What exactly is it about Romo's playoff record that would make someone inclined to believe he would give the Cowboys a better chance to win?

I would have to agree that sooner than later that will all come true.

That was due to Democrats. You know, your people.

Yep, the Cambellites beat hell out of the Baptists.
ON a different note, I think the not guilty verdict in the Oregon standoff will embolden the DOJ to go back to solving standoffs the old way ala Waco and Ruby Ridge.

Uhhh, Koresh ordered that fire.

And those kids probably learned all that about Hillary at church. All that sounds like no rational person could ever believe it, but that's the kind of thing a larger and larger segment of Republicans believe.

But Obama is dividing the country, according to them. Yet another irrational screed by Republicans and talk radio.

Rage,

Please present a shred of evidence that Obama's leadership has not made this country more divided.

You can't. His repeated ignorant comments regarding race issues and police have been awful incredibly divisive, staring with the Cambridge situation early on.

He is a divisive figure only in that the alt-right vilifies him with every breath. He hasn't made me feel divided from anyone. But then again, I'm a sane, rational person who isn't scared of black people, like the Rush Limbaugh audience is.

I remember being at a Texas Rangers game after the whole Elian Gonzalez thing. Rangers were losing and this drunk guy in the stands beside us kept yelling at the top of his lungs for Rafael Palmeiro to hit one for Elian. It was rather amusing.

When is it OK for people to hole up and shoot at the government? When they're white? Because this, Ruby Ridge, and the Bundy clan are the only times you nutters have been OK with it. Otherwise, you're fine burning people out or shooting them, whether they're armed or not.

Good old Elian Gonzales. The only illegal alien a Republican didn't think should be deported by force Can someone explain that to me?

Your answer should include the alt-right response to anything a Democratic president does. Thanks.

If Christians are so sure they've got it right, why are they so threatened by the fact that atheist books exist and some people like to read them?

Richie Whitt is the spokesman for a doomsday or prepper development to be built in Fannin County. No it is not called 1st Strike Estates as far as I know.

Dud Kennedy calls the CAB signs & t-shirts at the Baylor game a lack of institutional control and reported the same to the NCAA. Daddy's little fatty(Kennedy) must have run out of gravy and he isn't happy about it.

Ted Nugent grabbed his crotch at a Trump-kins rally. Maybe he's an Aggie supporter or some such.

This Christian has no problem with Atheists or their literature.

Why do Atheists try so hard to prove that something they believe does not exist does not exist? It almost becomes a cult for them.

So strange.

Oh well, peace to all.

Anonymous said...

11:26, there are far more problems in the institution than just the t-shirts. And yes, there is a complete lack of institutional control. Grab and the assistants directly contradict the administration and board on a regular basis now. Publicly.

Baylor has become a dumpster fire. More than it usually is, anyway.

Back pushing that "alt-right" moniker again I see. It failed to catch fire a few months ago, doubt a second go at it makes a difference.

Anonymous said...

I want to know the mechanics of removing a nipple ring with pliers. Did he have to get a real grab on the boobie, Donald Trump style? Was he gently caressing the boobie, just enough to keep it still? Or did he just grab one end of the nipple ring and yank real hard, without ever getting to grab onto the boobie? How big was the boobie?

Anonymous said...


12:49 Didn't play with enough boobies before you transitioned??
Possible upside, now you can play with your own if you spend the real $$$

I actually haven't used it but a couple times, and only recently. But don't let the facts get in your way, dipstick.

Still waiting for your answer.

No, you were using it quite often a while back when the media rolled it out. They, like you, backed off of it when it didn't trend. I guess your rehash campaign includes denials!

You sound like a Briles truther. He was fired for a reason. Baylor gets what it deserves for handling this mess the way that they have. And finally #62-22!

Look Barry, I found the speaks volumes guy!!!!

He doesn’t act like a rookie,” said tight end Jason Witten, who caught a 26-yard pass from Prescott . “He’s critical of himself when he makes mistakes. He takes ownership in it. Through eight weeks you look at what he’s done, it speaks volumes about him, his preparation and his ability to trust the people around him. He’s done a great job.”
