The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • You might want to hold off on that Christmas shopping. Trump may provoke China into nuking us before then. 
  • We've got a potential hung jury (a one person holdout) in the Walter Scott case. Incredible. Not only did the cop shoot him in the back which was captured on video, he tried to cover it up by planting evidence. 
  • The epitome of a sorry prosecutor is this: Indicting cases you can't prove and then not being ready when it is your chance to prove it. And the case in particular I'm talking about is a 20 year old "cold case" where a guy was indicted for allegedly drowning his wife in a hot tub. Where has it happened?  Notorious Williamson County, Texas. (The county which gave us the Michael Morton disaster continues to embarrass those prosecutors who are honest, decent, and hard working.)
  • Do they teach typing in school? Mrs. LL thinks the answer is "no." Is that true? I find that crazy.
  • And Another - Plano
  • Sarah Palin on Trump's Carrier deal: "Republicans oppose this, remember? Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.”
  • There are some great and practical legal issues regarding the former NFL player killed in New Orleans in a rage road incident. The shooter was arrested and then released the next day. Can police "unarrest" someone after the fact -- even 24 hours later? Sure. It rarely happens but they can. And just when is someone "charged" with a crime? I have always taken the position its the moment an indictment has been handed down. Until then, a person has simply been the subject of an arrest.
  • Rave of Death: That Oakland fire death count is now up to 36.
  • Many people think there is something fishy about the pastor/naked wife photos/dealership case. I do, too. But in addition to the civil suit, the guy has been criminally charged. I would hope there was an adequate investigation. If there wasn't, we've got a heck of a story on our hands.
  • This Papini kidnapping case (the  jogging mom), however, is still very, very weird.  And conservative radio talk show host Mark Davis agrees.
  • Mrs. LL, due to an eye issue, wore an eye patch all weekend. Kinda hot. Not Kill Bill hot, but pretty hot 

  • ESPN floated a rumor on Saturday that Art Briles was being considered for the University of Houston job. UH then issued a press release saying Briles was not being considered. When a school scrambles to tell the public you aren't a candidate, I'm not sure you are going to coach anywhere. 
  • We've got a relatively new "smart TV' with Amazon and Netflix video packages. I become paralyzed by the options. 
  • Troy Aikman's A Football Life was really, really good. But I can't believe more people aren't talking about the never before seen footage of him being mic'd up during a preseason game and going off on Switzer on the sideline. (Link stolen from BagOfNothing without consent or permission.)
  • RG3's wife went off, and I do mean off, on Twitter

Count is now 36 for the Oakland CA fire. Talk of manslaughter charges being filed. The media doesn't know property owner name or managing company, strange and slow...

I'm guessing Loncar killed himself too. Probably felt responsible for his daughters situation. Sad. Hopefully nobody blamed him for his daughter's suicide and pushed him to that.

Rave parties are all about ecstasy and death. Fill up a warehouse with people high on ecstasy and it is a disaster waiting to happen. The news media is ignoring this.

RTG MUCH better than last Monday's disaster. Barry if you find Marc Davis agreeing with you that alone ought to make you re-think your position and finally the Walter Scott case should be a slam dunk case but never know in a trial by jury so should have O.J'S

Kids of today have been typing since kindergarten. That would be a waste of a class. Think man, think!

While some schools CHOOSE to teach typing at the high school level (it's usually called something different these days), it is NOT a required by the state. There is a requirement for a technology class at the middle school level now that does teach typing. As far as a full blown typing class (like in the good old days)--NOPE. Times are a changing.

U.S. (Obama administration) sells $1.83 billion of weapons to Taiwan despite Chinese objections, as reported by the New York Times, December 17, 2015.

Barry, are you really this misinformed or is this intentional?

Trump accepted a congratulatory phone call vs. Obama sold $1.8 BILLION in arms.

On second thought, Im sure your correct the telephone call is far worse for China.

Simply incredible!

Typing? Uh...no. Nobody uses a typewriter anymore.

If Trump doesn't get us in a war with China before Christmas, will he be eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Why don't you think about that, 9:31, and rephrase it.

Agreed. What they don't teach in some places is handwriting/cursive.

It is called "Keyboarding" and it starts in Elementary school. It works for both computers and typewriters. It is still often called "typing" same as we still call it "dialing a phone."

"Vast majority" is a reach.

Since when does a Republican not want to sell weapons?

Sportz notes from the weekend:
Watched a little of the Highland Park/Mansfield Legacy game on Friday. They played at Pawpaw Jerry's Star facility in Frisco. HP's John Stephen "Spalding" Jones is a decent little QB. I think he even did a quick kick on a 4th down play. What are the odds he'll go to Arkansas? And would he make the team if he continues to play?
HP's head coach was wearing a dress coat and tie, almost unheard of nowadays on the sidelines. He also sported a fedora a la Cowboys' legend Tom Landry

Funnier you make a silly statement like that. I am liberal and I don't embrace her or does anyone I know. Must be nice to live in a conservative fantasy world.
