The Campaign For DA

11.21.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • My new mantra for Trump may be: "If you voted for him you own him." No more "What about Hillary" justifications. You own him.
  • Charlie Strong will be fired as the head coach at Texas. Hot Sports Opinion: He would be perfect for Baylor. He's a "character first" guy, and it would be two redemption projects. 
  • I'm officially old when during the great (justifiable) Cowboy hysteria I really perk up when I see an old clip of Tony Dorsett. 
  • Have the Cowboy cheerleader shorts gotten shorten? They look like bikini bottoms.
  • Here's an advertising twist: We have a Geico commercial with the lizard who references Helzberg Diamonds. 
  • I hate restaurants. But with the College Freshman In The House home for the holidays, we went to one last night. I basically recreated a scene from Pulp Fiction when I looked at the menu and, using my best  John Travolta voice, said, "$10 for a hamburger? $10? Let me get this straight. It's meat between two pieces of bread, right? And it's $10. Ok."
  • Talking to the College Freshman about "where do you get your news?" was horrifying. She's a smart and wonderful kid, but it was horrifying. 
  • The clip of Dak Prescott missing the trash can while throwing away a water bottle and picking it up is golden. I think that means a lot. It is very similar to my belief that you should always make your bed every morning.
  • Someone alerted to me on Friday to a show which was basically Cops but was "live." It was like the Red Zone channel for cops. From a Fourth Amendment standpoint, it needs to be shown in law schools.
  • The killing of the San Antonio officer during a traffic stop is sickening. And make no mistake about it: It had to have been captured on video. 
  • "Pope Francis says abortion can be forgiven by ordinary priests instead of requiring the intervention of a bishop." If I started writing a bullet point about this, I would never stop. 
  • Trump will spend more time at Trump Tower than the White House? Practically, it makes no difference. But how in the world would you not want to live in the White House?  
  • Trump settled the lawsuit against Trump University for $25 million. The President of the United States - Elect has just paid $25 million for conning dumb people who trusted him. 
  • I watched another episode (an old one) of Black Mirror last night. Man, I love that stuff. Mrs. LL and I would hit pause and discuss what we thought was going on.

In ref to Trump, get over it. Go fishing or something because you sound like a fool with all the whining.

"Trump settled the lawsuit against Trump University for $25 million. The President of the United States - Elect has just paid $25 million for conning dumb people who trusted him."

Once again, more liberal lies. You are a lawyer, right?

He was just elected POTUS, and does not want the distraction. Had he lost the election, he would have fought the lawsuit. He has thousands of satisfied customers.

He has already sacrificed tens of millions of dollars to try and help this country. 25 mill more is just another donation.

But please, keep up the lies. People seem to have figured out the MSM. Think about what you are doing. Almost all of entertainment, academia, media, all of the elites were against Trump, and he won. Fairly remarkable.

At least think about it. For once.

What ever happened to the Grover Norquist pledge people and increased spending without offsets? Trump's proposed spending on military and infrastructure will explode the National debt without tax increases. Is that now ok with conservatives?

It's interesting, he says you're whining but all they're carping about Obama was completely justified.

wordkyle said...

""If you voted for him you own him" - What exactly does that even mean? It's one of those vague easy-to-spout sayings that implies either a) It means nothing at all; or b) It changes meaning depending on the circumstances. In either case it seems to have replaced actual thought.

And "what about Hillary" will forever be relevant as a valid reason for voting for Trump. Clinton's recklessness/hubris (as in her handling of sensitive government information) and avarice (as in her selling her influence while Secretary of State) will not have been promoted to the White House. Preventing that disaster was historic good fortune for America.

wordkyle said...

And your "where do you get your news?" conversation with the College Freshman needs expanding. What were her answers? Why were you horrified?

The White House requires remodeling to update security measures. It has been planned and put off during Obama's presidency. So the oval office will be unavailable and Trump will have to work out of a different building. Could be that is why he will be using Trump Tower. For someone that preaches about getting the facts.....

I've been telling people here that they own him since he won the primary. People here have no problem with it. I think there may be cracks in your cognitive dissonance regarding how screwed up people are who love Trump, but you still don't get it. They love him. They have no problem owning him. There are effectively no more Republican dissenters. They are all in line, with their hats in one hand while they hold the other one out for a job or influence. He is the Republican Party now, and they are his.

"He's a "character first" guy, and it would be two redemption projects."

Three, because he could clean house of the assistant coaches and just call it a new incoming administration. That being said, I think he sucks and Baylor doesn't need him. Nor will they hire a black coach any time son. They dismissed Singletery for years, although he also has a white wife, so that's a double whammy at a Baptist school where half the board is made up of Baptist preachers, and the other half old white people with money. Strong can't field a defense, and copied Baylor's offense. So, he's effectively just going to be an affirmative action ploy to try and close down the lawsuits.


"Here's an advertising twist: We have a Geico commercial with the lizard who references Helzberg Diamonds."

If Warren Buffet owns something, it is likely to get cross-referenced in a Geico commercial, because he owns Geico too.

"Talking to the College Freshman about "where do you get your news?" was horrifying. She's a smart and wonderful kid, but it was horrifying."

So, she reads the blog too?

"I basically recreated a scene from Pulp Fiction when I looked at the menu and, using my best John Travolta voice, said,"

You are officially "THAT guy," or in the alternative, "THAT step-dad" with an eye roll. But if you don't go to restaurants much, it's no surprise that you don't know how to act while you're at one. I'd love to see you at The French Laundry doing bits.

"And make no mistake about it: It had to have been captured on video."

And they'll actually find this video, or to won't be somehow accidentally deleted, because it shows something the cops want to use. If we want to catch a cop doing something wrong, you better not hang your hat on a cop's video. It very well may not be there.

"If I started writing a bullet point about this, I would never stop."

And yet, that's a fairly succinct bullet point.

"The President of the United States - Elect has just paid $25 million for conning dumb people who trusted him."

Did they take him literally, and seriously?

. I did not vote for Trump but am gleeful that Crazy beat Evil. It renews my faith in the belief that Evil will never triumph, even when the only other option is Crazy. Trump is so thin-skinned he's starting to make it appear as though Obama has rhinoceros skin. As for all the whining, crying and gnashing of teeth, over the Trump win, welcome to how the other side felt during the 2 terms of Obama.

The only thing I really hate about the coverage of the election results is that there wasn't a camera chronicling Hillary's reaction (read that as meltdown) to the election results, throughout the night. How many of you just know, in your heart, Hillary went apoplectic several times, leading up the final realization she LOST?

. I'm shocked BU-Bear failed to post a link to the skimpy Cowboy Cheerleader bikini-shorts.

. Burgers at Chili's and Friday's have been $10.00+ since 2000.

. It seems that most people get their "news" from Facebook, late night talks shows and/or Daily Mail.

. The murder of Law Enforcement Officers is a direct reaction to allowing one group to perpetuate the myth that some lives matter more than others. FYI ALL LIVES MATTER People who are unable and/or refuse to wrap their head around that simple fact are the cancer in our society that is devouring it from within.

. Good for Trump for finally settling the suit against scammy sham Trump University. I don't care about his reasoning for doing it. By settling, Trump did the right thing for his presidency and the victims of Trump University.

I noticed that too. I even hit the 10 second rewind to see it again. As far as he knew, no one saw that and he got up and picked it up. It's not the huge things we do that everyone sees that points to our integrity, character, and how we were raised. Good job Dak's mom up in heaven. I know you're proud of your fine young man!

I am Roman Catholic and either you wrote it wrong or the Pope said it wrong, but a priest doesn't forgive sins. He cant. Only God does that.
Although God CAN forgive sin directly it requires a perfect motive: love of Him and sorrow over having offended such a good Lord. An imperfect motive would mean we have not fully turned from our sin back to God.

4 separate announcements denouncing personal violence, Baylor Christian values, Baylor code of honor, etc. If I had a pen I would have taken notes. Pregame video vignettes of how athletic coaches reach out in the community. Over compensation.

Couldn't find official attendance...40 to 45K maybe. lots of empty seats.

Before it became a rout...it looked like they announced a fire drill.

I should know better that to expect better of you, but the glee you show in one person's misery is kind of sad, even if it is someone like Clinton (who I dislike as well). I know you're not a Christian, and I really don't care because I believe that morality exists independently of any particular faith, but you generally tend to show the worst side of humanity in your spite. I realize that's just who you are. Maybe you were raised that way. Maybe the bad British teeth make you constantly grumpy. Either way, you should look into it as a matter os self-improvement.


"The murder of Law Enforcement Officers is a direct reaction to allowing one group to perpetuate the myth that some lives matter more than others."

You show a complete misunderstanding of what BLM is all about. Sure, there are some black people who think that white lives matter less, just like there are some Trumpers and tea partiers who are racists and white supremacists who carry rebel flags. But if you and Wordkyle can disown the extremes of your organizations, why do you at the same time assume the fringe runs every organization you don't like? BLM has specifically stated that they believe all lives matter. But you and I know that white lives don't exactly need any help or publicity. We kind of run things, and are the least likely to be shot by a cop as it is.

I don't hear you complaining every time a white guy shoots a cop. Nor do you and Wordkyle rush to print retractions when it turns out the a cop was shot for a non-political reason unassociated with BLM, as you insist are pointed out when, say, some protestor gets tackled by someone who ends up not being associated with Trump. And of course, there are fewer cops killed nowadays than ever. In fact, despite what the white lives matter folks think about Obama stirring up the race and anti-cop sentiment, officers are shot less often after eight years of his tenure than were shot under the three previous white Republican presidents. But as usual, pointing out your hypocrisy is low hanging fruit. It's just too easy.

"FYI ALL LIVES MATTER People who are unable and/or refuse to wrap their head around that simple fact are the cancer in our society that is devouring it from within."

Sounds like a self-diagnosis, to me.

I am glad some of the folks that Trump and his merry band of yes-men scammed will get back a portion of their money. How did anyone seriously think that Trump University was a real educational institution sharing time-honored wisdom in its training sessions? It was obvious that is was a long-con from the get-go. Just another episode of The Apprentice writ large. If that is the state of American smarts, I am heading to Home Depot to buy a truck load of duct tape, spackle, super glue, and staple guns to start my new home business - Face Lifts in 30 Minutes or Less.

Tax cuts the only answer? Friends, I point you to the hot steaming mess that Sam Brownback has served the good folks of Kansas with that approach. He courted the Tea Party heavily by putting his tax cut strategy in place without a replacement to pay for roads, schools, state services, etc. Now a major economic trainwreck with businesses fleeing the state. And now Sam is shocked that business leaders would want to leave a state where the infrastructure in crumbling before there eyes. Who knew? But hey, tax cuts!

I used to buy a hamburger from a stand on the Celina square for 25 cents and paid 18 cents a gallon for gasoline. Inflation is everywhere. Barry, when you are an old man you will look at a $10 hamburger as a bargain.

Anonymous said...

A $10 hamburger is a helluva bargain if you value your time. It takes me roughly 20 minutes to make one, that doesn't include the time it takes to buy the ingredients, drive to and from the store. I figure making my own cost about $4 for ingredients and around 30 minutes of my time. That means making my own is around $34.

Probably not in any really useful fashion. VERY few departments have cameras which look to the side or rear of the car, or at the officer. Basically we'll have footage of a normal traffic stop, and the sound of a shot, and the sound of the officer dying. Hopefully the camera got a good look at the car driving away.

I hope that we catch the shooter, but I have doubts that we will.

It is funny that all the voters who feel looked down on by elitist taxes will be paying for extra security so the first family's kid to go to school with other elitist kids!

The election was so close; if 100,000 votes for Trump in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania had switched to Hillary, who won the popular vote by 2 million, she would be president!

I agree all who voted for Trump, especially the evangelicals now own him! Everything is going to be different; Bannon, his chief adviser, once said he was like Lenin! Breitbart will become the closet state operated news media we seen in our country. At least Trump, the tyrant, didn't get my vote so I don't own him.

A black mother abusing her young child because he voted for Trump in a mock school election is shocking confirmation.
