The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts





  • The juicy story of the morning is the DFW pastor suing a car dealership because (1) pastor takes nude photos of wife at home, (2) they go to buy a car, (3) he gives the phone to a salesman because of a financing document he has on the phone, (4) the salesman allegedly goes through the guys photos and finds the nude ones and sends them to a buddy, (5) the buddy uploads them to a swingers site. Man, that's a lot to process. Oh, I forgot to mention that the salesman has the very biblically based name of Matthew Luke Thomas. 
  • One of the weirdest thing is that they hired Gloria Allred has their attorney. She's only about one time publicity press conferences and then you never hear anything about the case again. If it is money I was after, I wouldn't hire her.
  • And is the chance of getting money really worth the publicity? There's nothing wrong with taking naked photos of your wife, but I'm not sure I would want to admit I'm dumb enough to keep them on my phone. 
  • Argyle's place kicker makes first team all-district with stats of 32 of 35 PATs and 6 of 8 on field goals. Decatur kicker's stats: 71 or 78 on PATs and 1 for 1 on field goals.
  • Pretty cool: Time elapsed Google earth satellite of the metroplex's growth over the last decade or so. 
  • "Manuel", the fictional character who played a waiter on the BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers, has died. I mention it because Fawlty Towers is one of my all time favorite comedy series. 
  • So let me get this Carrier deal correct: 1,000 jobs are saved, but Carrier will still send 1,300 jobs to Mexico, get $7 million from the government and free publicity. The CEO of Carrier is the guy who needs to be President, not Trump. (And then Trump tells a Cincinnati crowd that he's proven there will be "consequences" for American companies moving operations out of the country.)
  • Hey, Wordkyle: New unemployment numbers this morning show it has dropped to 4.6%, the lowest since 2007.
  • It's the 35th birthday of Official Liberally Lean Girl, Britney Spears. 
  • That's a cute Mercedes commercial of the two kids taken to the movie theater on a snowy night. The boy waits anxiously for his little girlfriend wondering if she will show up. But, in reality, they would have been texting like crazy.

One of my all-time comedy series. John Cleese is brilliant.

"In November, 1.9 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, up by 215,000 from a year earlier. These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey"

Tell those folks about that falling unemployment rate. Again, Obama benefits from math, not from achievements.

BG,

Oh you are sooooo right! Everything is sunshine and roses. Perhaps we need to change the constitution, and keep Obama in power!

Why oh why, with these magnificent numbers, are there soooooo many people on food stamps, and other government subsistence programs? It must somehow be the Republicans fault.

And why oh why is the wrong track number for the US economy at well over 70%? I have that answer...FOX NEWS! Those bastards. If they were not so pervasive, the thoughts of the US population would be different. We would all understand just how great we are actually doing. Rather than depending solely on paying our own bills from a declining check.

By all means, ride this nag all the way to the bottom. The libtard elites still do not get it. But take heart, you will most likely always have California and New York.

Decatur v. Argyle kicker--The district, state, and national rankings (using a number of statistics, I suppose), also raise a HUGE question why the Decatur kicker wasn't given the nod!! And he's a great kid to boot (Band Drum Major and 3rd academically).

Morning observations:

1) Court house employees crossing Trinity at Walnut (4 way stop). You might want to put down your cell phone and pay attention to your surroundings while crossing the street(s). Too much tap & go at this location with drivers on their cell phones as well.

2) Business owners/employees on the square... If you park on the square where do you expect your customers/patrons to park?

Why does the city bother with the 2 hour parking signs if there is no enforcement?

I would totally hire Allred, for the same reason that I advised clients to try and get Marvin Zindler to report on their case if they got screwed by a car dealer/homebuilder/whatever. Most of the time, publicity brings out the check book.

She's a dirty scumbag, but she's probably going to get you a quick buck.

That case is more about going after the swinger site's money than the car dealership's, I bet. I smell a rat in that case.

Don't you mean "Andrew Sachs, who played the fictional charater "Manuel" on Fawlty Towers" instead of "Manuel", the fictional character who played a waiter on the BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers, has died.

I don't think the fictional character died.

Conservatives who would never tolerate such interference in business decisions by President Obama or other Democrats should not remain silent when a RINO like Trump does the same thing from a bully pulpit. What do I hear? Crickets and defensiveness. Hypocritics! Stand for what's right and quit the weenie "he won, you lost" or "your side did it too" responses. We know he won, we know Jill is wasting time and $, we don't care, it's just noise. Now it's time to focus on keeping this moron from trashing the place. Be responsible and be true to yourselves. Speak out against what we all know is bad policy.

Why do people pray to God to be spared from impending natural disasters that are caused by God? If someone is truly praying to God and believes, wouldn't that person also believe that it's God doing the deed in the first place?

The government (in a bi-partisan effort) puts in place a bunch of trade deals whereby companies are encouraged to move jobs to Mexico and overseas in order to save on labor costs. Then the same government tries to bribe companies into staying in the US by handing out taxpayer financed giveaways then brags about "saving" jobs. How stupid are we? And of course the 1000 jobs "saved" will be gone in a year or two anyway.

I have no problem with Carrier moving the plant to Mexico if they intend to sell their equipment to Mexicans but of course Mexican workers can't afford the goods they make because their wages are so low.

Anonymous said...

It is a lot to process, and what's ridiculous about it is the "I want to speak out to save others" aspect of this, and our society. As if there are a huge number of married couples that must be told that keeping nude photos of each other on phones they hand over to strangers from time to time is unwise. I think I'll go cliff-diving on the back of a three legged bald horse, have a bad wreck, and then once I recover I'll hold a news conference to warn the millions of other out there thinking about NOT to go cliff diving on the back of a three legged bald horse.

Barry, Barry, Barry, why must we rehash and debunk every establishment talking point.

The labor force participation rate is the share of the population who are at least 16 years old and are either employed or actively looking for work. In 2016, less than 63 percent of the population 16 years and older were in the labor force—the lowest rate of participation since the late 1970s.

Keep in mind this includes the mass entry of women into the workforce since the mid 70's.

4.7% is pure fiction. You should know that by now.

The trade deals were put in to remove tariffs-basically going into a free trade mode. It got the US to the free market set-up that Republicans have been creaming about for the last 50 years. This is what free trade looks like. Manufacturing jobs go to the cheaper areas. Sorry if workers weren't smart enough to go into high skilled areas. Maybe, thetc local governments should have focused on education instead of God.

1040,

"Why do people pray to God to be spared from impending natural disasters that are caused by God? If someone is truly praying to God and believes, wouldn't that person also believe that it's God doing the deed in the first place?"

Good question. God gave us free will. We can choose to do as we wish, believe in him or not, etc. Why did he not simply make all of us with the brain chemistry to believe in him, and follow his word without question?

The reason is, it is not about the destination so much as it is about the journey. Guaranteed, many bad things will happen to every single Christian. It is promised. Many are blessings...you cannot appreciate the good, without experiencing bad.

But just as with Job, David, the apostles, Jesus himself, faith is a matter of belief even when things are bad. It is easier to have faith when things are good.

We cannot know the reasons for things that happen, good or bad. We can have faith that we will be delivered in the end, no matter the earthly circumstances.

Counter to that, just live your life and wait for someone to turn the switch off. Not even a fade to black...just black.

95 million?!?! You realize the whole population of the U.S. is 325 million. So just about 30% of the population is unemployed and looking for work including newborns and 98 year olds? No, let’s not count anyone that is underage, retired, incarcerated, in higher education, etc in that number so you can try and throw out a scarier number.

Wordy and others, please recognize that I and many other seniors and sufficiently wealthy folks are not working because we don't want to. Others not looking for work have various reasons but some just don't have the needed skills and don't want to acquire them. Just recognize that few qualified jobseekers can't find employment. 4.6% unemployed is basically "full-employment".

Trump "saved" some 1000 out of their 1400 jobs at a furnace factory. But the same company is still sending some 1100 jobs to their new factory in Mexico. They are closing another factory in Indiana just down the road. Why no big complaint to Carrier (United Technologies) about that closing? What about the consequences he threatens?

551 - Sorry, it's not seniors who are responsible for the low labor participation rate. In fact, over the last 15-20 years, the percentage of seniors continuing to work past age 65 has gone up, while the largest number of people leaving the workforce are in the prime-working age range 25-54.

And as I pointed out above, the number of people who are ready, willing, and able to work, but unable to find employment has increased by almost a quarter million since last year.

Barry, please post something about Breitbart boycott of Kelloggs! The cereal company pulled all ads from the alt-right site over an article written by Milo on how birth control makes women crazy! I thought the article had to be a spoof but read it to the end; no wonder Kellogg pulled away. Milo points to all sorts of reasons why women should not be on the pill including making them gain wait, sexually unattractive, increased the divorce rate.

After listing all the negatives, one would think he would suggest using a condom? Not! He said for civilization to survive Muslims, we need the kids and that is what God wants!

I'm not a conspiracy theorist but it seems like now we know the real reason behind the opposition to planned parenthood; Muslims are growing faster than Christians. And to think the owner of Breitbart is our newly elected president chief adviser!

I'm on Kellogg side...going to stock up on cereal now!

So math has nothing to do with the number of electoral college votes for each state?

You sure about that?

I think it is simple counting, basic addition.

wordkyle said...

842 - "So math has nothing to do with" is pretty far from anything that was mentioned.

Obama has benefited because the formula that's used in calculating the "official" unemployment rate counts only those people who are officially in the Labor Force. The government doesn't count people who are unemployed, ready and willing to work, but not in their system. That percentage has dropped dramatically during Obama's time in office. So the "low unemployment" BG has tried to brag about over the years is not because there are fewer unemployed people, but because the government quit counting them. That calculation is math, not achievement.
