The Campaign For DA

11.10.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • There were protesters in the street last night about Donald Trump being elected President. I have a message for those doing so who did not vote: Sit your butt down. For those who did vote: Sit your butt down. If you lose, you lose. And give the man a chance. 
  • The concept of "give the man a chance" is something we all live by. I guess the problem is how you define "a chance."
  • Trump's acceptance speech was gracious. Hillary was fantastic yesterday. And President Obama was comforting. As he said, it is the peaceful transition of power that makes us who we are.
  • Trump will enter office with an all time stock market high and with real estate at the very end of crazy bubble. Both will probably crash/pop over the next four years. It won't be his fault but he will be blamed for it. It's just time for it to happen.
  • I own one of those stainless steel Yeti drink thingies (cue the orchestra music) and one which came from Buc-ee's. They seem to be exactly the same and will hold ice for hours and hours. Someone told me that they are the same and the two companies are owned by brothers who own the same patent. That may not be true, but it makes perfect sense.
  • Watch out for this: A Texas Supreme Court judge was re-elected to a six year term but will only be able to serve four years due to an age restriction. He will be replaced by a governor's appointment. Remember that I told you Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick's son lost his judgeship in Houston yesterday? There you go. 
  • There is absolutely no way any public office age restriction law is constitutional.
  • I forgot to mention yesterday that Sheriff Joe got beat. Why don't people retire while they are ahead?
  • Tell me the straight ticket voting in Wise County! I do not want to walk thirty yards to the Wise County Election office and ask!
  • One commentor on here revealed that he looks at the source code of any photo I post to see how I labeled the ".jpg" file.  That's crazy. But I almost always think about that possibility when I label them so normally I choose names which are completely random (i.e. "fxes1.jpg")
  • There was a first time appearing "out of town" lawyer come up to the courthouse this week and was able to piss off a prosecutor who is hard to piss off. I do not understand how so many of those guys can be so dumb. 
  • Is Megyn Kelly getting hotter?
  • You don't see many Amber Alerts with the "armed and dangerous" warning or "suspect/s" in the warning. (She kind of looks like the crazy girl from Dr. Phil I posted earlier this week.)
  • Mark Davis said on his weekly appearance on Fox 4 this morning that almost all of the Hispanic roofers you see are here legally.

Re: YETI and RTIC - Both are LLCs and owned by brothers, but different sets of brothers... the Seiders and Jacobsens respectively.

YETI was first to market and patented their offerings. Currently, YETI has lawsuits against RTIC, Wal Mart (Ozark Trail), and others for patent infringement. Cases are pending.

BG,

"Trump will enter office with an all time stock market high and with real estate at the very end of crazy bubble. Both will probably crash/pop over the next four years. It won't be his fault but he will be blamed for it. It's just time for it to happen."

You are absolutely correct on those two points. But the much much larger bubble is the $20 trillion national debt. Sooner or later, the Fed will raise interest rates. Most probably sooner. If Trump does everything he has outlined; bringing back offshore profits from US companies, cutting the corporate tax rate, etc, etc, real GDP growth will skyrocket. So the Fed raises interest rates to try and prevent inflation. So US interest costs will begin to go up.

It will matter on new debt. So if the US has significant deficit spending, more and more tax dollars will go to service the debt. Fed spending must be reduced right off the bat. Not sure of the maturity of old debt. But most assuredly, much will be refinanced at higher interest rates. Interest costs begin to be a progressively and exponentially higher percentage of the budget.

Obama has winged the last eight years through deficit spending, and low Fed interest rates. I have not looked it up yet, but I would bet Obama has had the lowest borrowing rate of any president in recorded history. Even with that, he has not recorded one quarter of 3% GDP growth. The most sluggish recovery in US history. Very sad. His stimulus bill did not produce the results he promised. But they never do.

I am fairly sure the Dems lured everyone into the briar patch. Repubs control all three branches of government. There will be a giant crash at some point. Most likely, Trump will be president. You are correct that he will get the heat, when he had nothing to do with it. Then the Dems will be all over the MSM, screaming about the poor Repub economic performance.

All this is the one reason I hoped he would lose. But then, if he appoints 3-4 conservative SCOTUS judges, it will most likely have been worth it. But maybe not.

Nobody ever goes through life undefeated.

I DID NOT VOTE STRAIGHT TICKET, BECAUSE I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE CHOICES DOWN BALLOT, BUT ONLY ONE NAME AT DISTRICT ATTORNEY... NOT SURE ABOUT BUCCEES CUPS, BUT YETI AND OZARK TRAIL(WALMART) ARE THE SAME. YETI HAS SUED WALMART, BUT WHAT SHOULD ONE EXPECT WHEN OUT-SOURCING TO CHINA?

All the protesters prove is: It's a GOOD thing that people like that didn't "get their way". They disprove their own point they're trying to make. How efficient.

Also, I wonder how many would show up if they knew media cameras weren't there? Any media-created/enhanced story is NOT a story.

I own several of those Walmart brand (Ozark Trail, I think) stainless steel drink thingies (cue the banjo music). They work exactly the same and cost about ten bucks apiece.

"Is Megyn Kelly getting hotter?"
You can forget about trying to make nice after the fact. You were always on Trump's S-list.
"Barron Green? LOSER! He is not the hardest working man in entertainment. I've had that title for yeeears, and my victory on Tuesday only reinforces it.
Yes, he attended a private university but it's in Waco! Nobody knows where that is. That school has gotten a bad rap, by the way. One of my first acts as president will be to grant it a pardon. A fantastic, luxurious, solid gold Presidential pardon."

Stock market responds to stimulus plan of 1 trillion spending for roads, bridges, airports, schools, inner cities! How many of the "forgotten men" will get jobs or benefit? Of course, the fed will print the money to pay for it and interest rates will go up! Tax cuts for everyone creating another 6 trillion in debt! Draining the swamp; just a different group getting rich from stimulus spending! So 4 years from now the pendulum will swing back to the Democrats!

I don't believe Patrick will be put on the supreme court. First of all, he's a criminal judge so he would go to the CCA. He has not practiced civil law a day in his life, and in addition to being too young, he'd be an awful pick for a civil bench and there are lots of Harris County judges with more time in and who are better connected than just having crazy Dan as a father. There is a judge in Harris County who just lost her bench and she fills a couple of minority slots. I have beat her on appeal three times so she would be a terrible appellate judge because she does not follow the law and you cannot convince her otherwise, but she is more likely to get that bench than anyone else right now. Or they may move another older judge up who won their election, and put her in their bench. There is also an older Republican judge who lost his bench who has been bucking for a federal bench for years, so maybe they move him up to Austin. He's an arrogant prick who may have been banging an attorney he keeps appointing as an ad litem and approving her fees for about $6,000 for a minor settlement conference, but nobody seems to care about that.

Harris County has several retiring civil and criminal judges in the next year or so--some to avoid having to run again, others because they're old. Patrick (and some civil judges) will be put into those slots.



I agree with your statements on peaceful transition. But people get to protest--if they participated.

The thing about giving Trump "a chance" is that his policies are very adverse to what a lot of the country wants. Even the people who voted for him didn't necessarily do it because of his comprehensive policies. Hell, we don't even know what those policies are. They did it for a single issue, like Obamacare, or just to throw bombs at the system with an outsider.

And I get that. To some extent, I like a little anarchy here and there.

But what they don't understand is that rolling back the EPA will have disastrous effects on our environment, increasing voter restrictions will disenfranchise the old and the poor, and eliminating Obamacare without the replacement they keep mentioning but not explaining will hurt kids most of all.

After thinking about the net result of the election, I agree more than ever that the Supreme Court is where it's at, like Trump mentioned (through his coaching--no way does he care about the court. He's a businessman, not a politician or activist). And if future suits against the EPA, which Texas files on a regular basis, are successful, they're going to trash this place. I don't even care about global warming. I'm talking about polluted water and air, and if you think for a second corporations will create more jobs with less regulation, you're crazy. They'll simply create more profit, and pass that to their shareholders or take it overseas and not pay taxes on it here.

Anyway, I hope these things don't come to pass and I'll give him a chance mostly because there is no other option. He was elected. He won. He gets to succeed or screw up, but to say that people should just keep quiet about it is inappropriate. He needs to know that there are people out there that dislike his policies, and those opinions aren't invalid simply because they were the minority of voters. And they are irreconcilable differences that even a peaceful transition will not address. Maybe next time they'll show up and vote, instead of just bitch.

Thanks to last night's sweeping victory for marijuana law reform, one in five Americans now live in a state where adult use of cannabis is legal, and three in five where medical marijuana use is legal. Together that's 60% of the US population and Electoral Votes.

And if that wasn't enough of an indicator that this country is ready to end prohibition, then the statistical fact that marijuana reform performed better in the 2016 election than ALL of the candidates should tell you that things are really *heating up* in this country regarding the "Devil's Lettuce."

So if Hillary was so fantastic and Obammy so comforting, why aren't they calling for Soros funded riots to stop?

Where are all the outraged Liberals gnashing their teeth and screaming about people not accepting the outcome of the election and jeopardizing the security of the US? Remember, the Liberals, along with CNN's David Gregory, were the ones, in October, howling about how not accepting the outcome of the election would "undermine our democracy." Then there was the CA-Irvin law professor who proclaimed, "Our democracy is a fragile thing which depends on accepting the rules of the game." Oh right, that only pertains to non-liberals. Libtards are able to do anything they deem appropriate because they are elitist know-it-alls who believe, they alone, have the moral superiority to DICTATE to the rest of humanity what is right and what is wrong.

I'm double flattered to get a "Double Fake." However, let me make a few corrections:

1.) BULLSnoT...Because I tend to avoid curse words but don't mind people knowing I mean to say a curse word.

2.) mzchief...My nick-name is not MzChief with Mz (as in a honourific) Chief (as in head of a tribe) it's all lowercase "mzchief" which is intended as a bastardization of "mischief" as in (playfulness that is intended to tease, mock, or create trouble)

Again, I'm truly flattered to get a "DF" mention. Thank you.

Clinton conceded without reservations and Obama is going to assist with the transition. So not sure what your rant about not accepting the loss is all about. If it's the protestirs, they're not disputing the validity of he election or the system, unlike conservative s with all the "secede" bumper stickers after each time they lost.

But don't let facts get in your way. You never do.

Interesting numbers in the election. Mr. Trump pulled fewer national votes than either Romney in 2012 or McCain in 2008, yet won. Mrs. Clinton proved to be not someone that Democrats or Independents could get excited about. Her vote totals were way under Obama in both 2012 and 2008. Even though she got the majority nationally (by a slim margin), she got her clock cleaned in the Electoral College. Interesting data.

They will win...this is but a speed bump in the road to idiocracy. Please note in his ridiculous tweet the other night he misused the word. His Obama has failed...took the easy path...kicked the can down the road. ..Trump will be vilified. Book it. Barry will continue to be the "white man apologist". But nice try.

Clearly, reading comprehension isn't a life skill you've managed to attain. I didn't say anything about Hillary or Obama. I merely commented on the behaviour of "liberals." As for your failure to keep up with the latest horde of dolts pushing to "secede" just take a look at the people supporting Calexit.

I deleted a post, a few weeks back, that made reference of "word on the street it's the NSA hacking the e-mails" because I failed to include the source link at the bottom, that was a joke source, to indicate all the tinfoil hat BS that was going on in the election. Somehow, my second/corrected comment, that included the "joke source" didn't get published. I wasn't aware of the situation until several days later. I don't read The Blog everyday and typically don't go back and reread comments or even bother to see if anyone has responded to my comments.

Today, I deleted my comment at 1:44 because I failed to address it to "Anonymous 1:11." I immediately noticed my error, when it was published, and resubmitted my corrected comment at 1:48. I was so concerned about my second/corrected comment not being published I actually sent Barry an e-mail asking that he make sure my second/corrected comment was published because of the hissing and spitting backlash I got a few weeks ago when my second/corrected comment failed to be published.

As for your BULLSnoT claim that 1/2 my posts have been deleted, you're either an idiot or a liar. I've only deleted 2 comments, from this site, and BOTH have happened in the past month. As for me being caught "lying," lying about what? Let's see your explanation about your claim I'm "lying." Seems the only liar here is YOU!
