The Campaign For DA

11.08.2016

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • It's Election Day. I love politics but I'm as tired of this as you are.
  • Clinton wins. She wins big. And by "big" I mean "big" by national election standards. It looks like Florida has swung back to Hillary but it's too close to call.  If that turns out to be an early win for her, the election will be called before you finish dinner.
  • The great 538.com finally settles on this: 

  • I don't know where ALL CAPS guy went over the last three days. 
  • The next person to carry Wise County as a Democrat is the first person smart enough to garner the Hispanic vote. And it starts in Bridgeport. 
  • Everyone forgets that Wise County, not too long ago, was completely Democratic. In 1992, every county-wide office holder was a Democrat. In 1996, Todd Durden won the County Attorney's job as a Republican -- the only Republican to win -- by a razor thin margin. (He beat the incumbent, Stephen Hale, who publicly refused to prosecute marijuana cases.) And then the transition began to Republican as everyone finally saw the writing on the wall.
  • And make no mistake, Wise County didn't have Democrat "ideals" even pre-1996. It was just the way it had always been. And we are slow to change. 
  • I saw where Hillary just voted. Random thought: Trump did remember to register, didn't he? 
  • See screenshot below. Before the paywall got me, I read it was likely that one of them will plea to a misdemeanor and all others would have charges dropped. I'm guessing the initially reported facts turned out to be far from true. Edit: The Dallas Observer now has the story.
  •                                
  • ESPN's 30 for 30 will produce an episode on the 1988 Dallas Carter Cowboys.  Robbery and mayhem abounded. 
  • Denton County court reporters, and there are a ton of them, make $103,737.92.  What they do is amazing, but that is one great gig. 
  • It will be interesting to see if Arlington voters approve the new Rangers stadium. Hey, I like air conditioning too, but how can you just walk away from a perfectly wonderful ballpark?
  • We need to rethink police chases, and I would have lost my mind it this had been the result of a stolen "bait car" yesterday. (I think most bait cars are inoperable or can be shut down remotely.)
  • There was a prayer vigil for "our country" at the Wise County Courthouse steps last evening. I didn't see that advertised beforehand.
  • I was watching Fox News last night and saw the following three ads in a row: (1) Some kind of freezing machine which can make food last for 25 years -- for the Doomsday Prepper, (2) Gold, and (3) the NRA.  Make no mistake about it: There is a very large percentage of the population preparing for a civil war. I'm serious. I know a couple of really smart people who those ads are aimed at.

Sadly another step to idiocracy occurs today. Hillary will continue to run this country into the ground. Don't forget she is a lawyer. That says it all.

40% of Congress are lawyers. Lawyers are not leaders. Lawyers just like to talk and hear themselves talk.

Only way Hillary wins big would be due to massive voter fraud. Your own President, Oblowme was on nationwide TV telling illegals it was ok for them to vote. Seriously? Bogus absentee ballots, voting machines switching from Trump to Clinton. It never goes the other way, I wonder why? Even with fraud the election is close. Without fraud Trump mops the floor with Clintoon.

What type mentality votes for Hillary? While she is fooling the lazy, and shiftless among us....she enriches herself and her ilk. How can an educated person vote for her? She is evil.

What do you mean by "our country?" Are you already painting a target on our backs for you and your other commies to hunt us down?

Those ads aren't aimed at smart people. They're aimed at functional crazy people.

The rural shift to the GOP that started in the late 90's and was complete by 2008 was driven by wedge politics that Gingrich brought about. Rural voters are more bigoted now than then because it's acceptable for them to be that way and be than way more openly than in the past. Hell, their leader is that way, and they still have women and minorities who will vote for him because as bad as he is, they're even more afraid of what they view a liberal to be. That's not the mindset of a smart person. That's the mindset of a crazy person.

+1 on the Grappler. I watched the video the other day, and it seems like a great solution to police chases.
People running from the police need to rethink running from the police

RTG election: I'm going right down the middle on this one!


WHEN THE CIVIL WAR DOES START, THE ONLY IMPORTANT AD TO REMEMBER IS THE ONE FOR THE NRA. THAT WILL GET YOU WHAT YOU WANT FROM THE OTHER TWO ADS

@ 8:57 " DF The Last Sane Texan":

My guess is that there would be a small few, some of whom might be loudly vocal about it, who would be offended if they saw what you described. If some of them identified themselves as Christians, some people of a similar mind as you would characterize other Christians by the behavior of that small group of people. The vast majority of professing Christians would simply go on their way, and take no offense.

You might be sane, but do you realize that your statement indicates that you fit the definition of bigot regarding "the local gentry"?

You need to accuse yourself of that?
Nobody else here is making that assumption..

You argue with yourself using hyperbolic conjuncture.
Stupid is what those voters identified with, therefore they are protected..
Liberal speak for burger king mentality. Get on board the Trump Train before you lose your mind.

Hillary brings a plethora to the table...Whitewater where many were cheated out of their money by the Clintons, then we have being an ineffective senator for a state that she had never lived in, dead ambassador and a huge list of atrocities while she was secretary of state for Obama. At least she has stability in being wrong on most every side of any issue including the open border and importation of more Muslims. She will bring more to the table than what is left of this debt-ridden country can handle!!

@Rage @ 9:21

The shift of which you speak was driven by a shift in the Dem party from the party of the working people to the party of socialism. In contradiction to the thin veil of "helping those in need", socialism is entirely covetous, which is of course antithetical to the value system held by most people.

I disagree with: "Rural voters are more bigoted now than then because it's acceptable for them to be that way and be than way more openly than in the past." In reading history, there has apparently been little change in humankind over time, and I mean going way back. It is increasingly less acceptable to be that way openly in the US, if one is a Caucasian Christian and most especially if male in gender. It has become increasingly acceptable to be bigoted toward that group alone, to the point that it is not even considered bigotry if that group is the object of the bigotry expressed. Your post is chock full of bigotry, but that would not be recognized by many in US society today because of which group your bigotry targets.

Regarding your next statement, there are many, me included, who didn't vote for Trump in the primary, but will in the general, because in spite of his shortcomings, what thinking person can vote for what we know HRC to be?

Anonymous said...

You guys really need to get with the times. Trump is an old-world mentality - still operating on the grow the economy, create jobs, taxes are important, etc.

It will not be too much longer before automation, robotics, and AI eradicate much of what we currently call the "workforce." This technological evolution is not fiction - it is inevitable. You can see this in banking, insurance, online sales, warehouse management, commodity production, agriculture, and even the service industry. Trump is incapable of abandoning that which lines his pockets. While you may decry socialism because you think you are owed more than others, at some point all this will be rendered moot. Universal income will be the norm, environmental issues will supersede all else, and taxes will be obsolete.

Oh, and Obama didn't encourage illegals to vote. That snippet was edited by Fox News and that fact was made public yesterday. You should be careful about spreading misinformation, as this causes many of the problems you claim to despise.

Try getting your news from a reputable source. When you hear/read something that seems unlikely, even if you REALLY want to believe it,it is best to research the quote and/or video. Do you honestly think it's likely that POTUS would sit for an interview and say that illegal aliens should vote? C'mon now.

You think Elon Musk thought that up? Try Asimov, Sagan, Hawking. Elon Musk didn't say anything new, just elaborated on existing theory. Elon Musk just said it recently, and it was good to hear him do so. Did I submit that this was my idea? No. If I had to explain gravity to you, do I have to reference Newton? In discussing time travel or space/time, do I have to reference Einstein? Why don't you try doing something productive and quit getting hung up on stupid shit. What a dumb fuck....stick with Facebook.

Hey 12:30!

I'm concerned about Islamic terror attacks in any number of parts of this country. What I am TERRIFIED of is the attacks that come from Redneck Bubba's who are too stupid to do anything but lie, steal, drink and snort meth on a daily basis. Look at the Sheriff's report in the WCM for the last 6-12 months and tell me burglary/theft and controlled substance arrest are not on the rise.

I've never had a problem with bait cars. I realized all on my own, years ago, that if I did not steal cars, I would not have to worry about stealing a bait car. Those that think it's unfair to the car thieves never seem to be offering up their own vehicles for theft. They'd rather someone else's car be stolen than to have a bait car stolen. Wow, how good of you.

Why do Liberals have to cheat if their candidate is so good? Deny it all you want but it is happening across the country. Va, Penn, fla, Ohio and on and on. Florida poll workers caught filling out bogus absentee ballots. Voting machines changing votes in several states. Philadelphia doing what they do. Not allowing Republican poll watchers do their jobs. It goes on and on and on and Dems see no problem with it. Liberalism is a mental disorder. People are pissed across the country. Wars have been started over this kind of crap. It has to stop.

Rage, So you are going to vote for a pathological liar? Sounds like a good reason to me. So, I'll ask you again, what are three promises that she made that will make you vote for her? I asked the first time and all you could come up with is "She is not Trump." I don't want advice from you on how to tie my shoes because I don't want the laces in knots.

No threat of violence Dad. I am actually a pacifist. I just don't believe you would have the balls to call me a stupid fuck if we were face to face. You are the type of fellow that flips the other driver off from behind the wheel of your hybrid Prius after you are certain that the other isn't capable of following you because they exited. It is elitist turds like yourself that look down on everyone with a differing opinion than you as uneducated or stupid. That is demonstrated by the Dad bit. Many of your thoughts are well articulated and backed by evidence at times. It is your self righteous smug delivery that ruins the message. I don't like Trump and I think Kiss sucks. Since we are playing the assumption game, go grab your Macbook Pro and muse on the current state of inter tribal relations in sub Saharan Africa on your blog while Standing With Standing Rock. This is fun, isn't it? I am actually a Libertarian, but I have to pull for Trump somewhat to see the hand-wringing from the likes of you and our host.
