The Campaign For DA

12.01.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • The final Texas numbers are in:
  •                                 
  • A former Parker County district judge now advertises a criminal conviction expunction practice on Fox News. (During the block for local commercials.) Edit: He didn't use the word 'conviction" - not that it matters. Expunctions in Texas are basically impossible after any judicial resolution other than a dismissal or acquittal. 
  • I keep hearing from various commentators that Scalia wrote the flag burning Supreme Court opinion. (i.e. Bill O'Reilly last night.) No he didn't.
  • I told Mrs. LL that my cotton dress shirts shrink around the neck as they get older. I'm pretty sure her skepticism was the equivalent, "Are you sure you're not just getting fat?"
  • I'm still trying to verify it, but there might have been a police department in Wise County who forgot about two guys in a holding cell overnight when they should have been taken to the Wise County Jail. And I mean completely forgot about.
  • That three person meal between Romney, Trump and Priebus cost over $700. That before taxes and tip.
  • This Carrier deal is the biggest con. And I fear were in for a ton of them. And when Trump talked about Carrier on the campaign trail, he didn't talk about beating them down with tax breaks to make them stay, he said they needed to suffer "consequences" and "retribution" if they left.
  • Steve Eagar last night about a random story: "He has a rap sheet out of Collin County including theft." First, no one calls it a "rap sheet" anymore. Secondly, if the worst thing on your "rap sheet" is theft, it could hardly be called a "rap sheet." 
  • There was some weird small planes flying around 407 and 287 yesterday in Wise County. It was like they were playing with each other. I saw four of them at one time really close to the ground. 
  • It's almost hard to remember that the Cowboys play tonight. And the most amazing thing we'll see is the Viking's Terence Newman on the field. He was drafted by the Cowboys in 2003.
  • Texas has enacted by rule, not by legislation, that fetal remains after an abortion must be buried or cremated. I thought those boys in Austin said they were only concerned about women's health with past abortion rules and regulations?
  • Odd point about gold theft in New York. In one of the surveillance camera's footage the faces of other people were digitized out. In the other, they were not.  (There wasn't any reason to alter the faces of other people. They were walking on a public street.)

BG, you are in complete (and I mean complete) denial over Trump and the Carrier thing. The reality which you choose to ignore is this: Carrier was going to move production to Mexico. Trump talked to them, and now they're not. Again, I caution you to be aware of what your political leanings are doing to your mind.

"I thought those boys in Austin said they were only concerned about women's health with past abortion rules and regulations?"

forgot to comment on this--this is not technically an "abortion regulation". It does not affect a woman's right to have the procedure. It may make it more expensive, but I'm not sure keeping tons of human remains out of landfills is such a bad idea. Throw in that we should have a little more respect than that for your average former-baby, and I am totally OK with this.

The regulations related to hospital credentials and 6' hallways, etc., were completely bogus. Facilities that perform far riskier procedures don't have to jump through those same hoops, so that was clearly an attempt to restrict the ability to have the procedure performed. And they got busted, so that part is (largely) over.

On the shirt collars - same here. I am told a shirt has a life of 25 to 30 washes - I thinks that is because they shrink and don't fit. But 1/2 to 1 size larger and you'll get a lot more useful life from your shirts. And wearing a tie will be less of a choking experience.

Women who miscarry at home are exempt from the regulation. The regulation was merely enacted to further punish women who have an abortion. Yeah, Texas honestly believes it has the right to penalize someone for receiving a medical procedure deemed legal by the SCOTUS.

Romney's part was just over $200.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2016/11/30/mitt_romney_dines_with_the_devil.html

"...the dishes mean we can reconstruct the bill. It seems that Romney ordered the $138 Price Fixe menu, which allows a choice of three dishes, and paid a $15 upcharge for choosing the lamb chops. (Trump and Priebus were less price-conscious, paying an extra $25 for the prime sirloin.) So, assuming the restaurant allowed the President-elect’s party to substitute in the garlic soup at no extra charge, his meal cost $138, plus $15 for the lamb, plus $12 for dessert, plus $14.64 tax (at 8.875%) plus a 20% tip—though if anyone’s a bad tipper, it’s Trump—of $35.93. This means the total cash price for Mitt Romney’s credibility, dignity, and immortal soul was approximately $215.57."

A "talk", and a $700000 tax abatement bribe, and, the Mexico plant will still go into operation, making those that stay short timers. This was a delay, not a stop, and nothing more than a publicity stunt at the expense of Indiana tax payers. And, it sends a message to companies that the squeaking CEO gets the govt grease, but if they're squeaking, they're losers, to use Trump's term - let's prop them up for govt show regardless. So, in future "deals", which companies get the grease: are abatements open to all, or just companies that are friendly to, or profitable for, the DonTator regime? Where can I pick up my free DonTator tax abatement?

Speaking from experience of a woman who miscarried requiring a trip to the hospital at about 5 weeks, the fetal remains were disposed like other medical waste. I never gave what happened to the tissue a thought! Gov. Abbott is behind the new rule requiring burial or cremation of fetal remains, no matter the time of gestation, is overreach into the private lives of woman and their families. It should be a family choice, that the government!

Most women who miscarry at home usually flush it down the commode! It is a natural process, that for some reason all fetuses do not survive, most happen the first three months.

Life begins when we are born and take the first breath of life. That moment is recorded on a birth certificate. We die when we take our last breath and that moment is recorded on our death certificate.

But now, right wing evangelicals choose to force their beliefs on the secular world through rules and laws to legislate their moral code. This rule on fetal burial is so far out of the main stream and only creates more burden on our medical providers while having nothing to do with public health. Abbott won't have the final say on this one; it won't stand up in court!

On the big Trump rescue of jobs, recall that in addition to the tax abatement for Carrier, United Technology which owns Carrier, is a big military provider. If they didn't superficially comply with this deal, Trump would threaten their future military business. So we tax payers get to subsidize Carrier and, likely, pay more for our A/C. Oh yeah, Trump's a great negotiator!!
BTW, Carrier is still building an A/C plant in Mexico for their additional manufacturing.

Ahhh, so life begins at birth. I would imagine the pain that a fetus feels while having its bones broken as it is pulled from the birth canal is not real since life has not begun yet. Keep telling yourself it is just a bundle of cells to justify your belief in "women's healthcare." Such a crock of shit.

Shane Hardin said...

Few Comments about Carrier:
1. This appears to be a government bailout deal with huge tax incentives to keep Carrier here. Weren't they supposed to be punished for wanting to leave American, not rewarded?
2. The majority of these Trump supporters are free market advocates. The free market dictates that Carrier move to the cheaper labor to make more money. Government is not supposed to interfere with the free market. How does this correlate with his "GOP-free market" base of support?
2. Who is the governor of Indiana where Carrier was? Mike Pence. Where was his involvement in this decision before Trump made a campaign promise? That's his home state.

"Life begins when we are born and take the first breath of life."

And this, folks, is the problem.

There is an honest, legitimate dispute about when life begins. It is not as simple an issue as a "woman's body", nor is it as simple as one side saying that life begins at a certain point.

Even most pro-choice folks agree that late-term abortions are inappropriate. When a child could be viable is certainly a point in time to consider.

And the hypocrisy runs rampant for both sides. Neither side can truly call itself pro-life or anti-death unless they oppose both abortion and the death penalty. That is the only way to remain true to Christianity. That being said, Christianity cannot be the standard we use, but the difference in how each side deals with abortion and the death penalty is simply a vague for the hypocrisy on either side.

We also have laws that if a person kills an unborn child, by either assaulting or murdering the pregnant woman, the defendant can be prosecuted for murder. This law is widely supported by women's rights groups who also say that abortion should be legal. So, if life only begins at birth, how can it be murder to kill an unborn baby? The mother's intent to carry the baby to term cannot be the only thing that makes the baby a person.

So, there are multiple issues, all of which are more complicated than "it's the woman's choice/body" or "it's not a life until it's born".

And that's not even getting into some of the issues related to a man's rights, or lack of them. Why is it that a woman can either terminate or have the baby, and the man has to help support it, and there is almost no way a father can terminate his support? That is still more hypocrisy from the women's rights groups.

Why would a grown man wear cotton undershirts in this day and age, definitely a fashion faux pas. I'm a suit and tie guy and wouldn't be caught dead with an undershirt. Time to grow up, purchase quality dress shirts that are tailored to your build, and aren't the thin see through material. Try it, you will no longer deal with "shirt bulge", you will look thinner, be much more comfortable and confident. Also allows you to add a fashionable vest in cooler weather without looking like a pig in a blanket.

Agreed with a small question. Why can't it be based on Christian stands?
Is it because we have too politically correct?
Didn't the founding father's set this country up based on Christian values?
Do we keep the parts we like and toss the rest?
Is it not, in some part due to erosion of mainstream normality why Trump won?
Would it have been better to have "The root of suffering is attachment" written on our currency? I respect (not always agree) the thoughts of most of you -Wordy, Rage and Mzchief and others just wonder how this adds up? Anyone?

12:45 - The founding fathers emphatically did NOT set up America as a Christian nation. In fact, a good sample of the of the founding members were interestingly agnostic, spiritualist, or atheist. Terms like "In God We Trust" was not added to money until the '50s, and "One Nation Under God..." was not added to the Pledge until the 50's as well. Prior to this, the script on currency was The trending shift to theocratic governance is a recently new development. In fact, the Pilgrims fled to America to escape the church of England.

And this is what drives me crazy about SOME people. Why would you think America was founded on Christian values?! I could go on and on about this. While Jefferson may be more eloquent, Franklin really has some strong opinions about this.

"And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors."

I hate the "Pro-life" vs. "Pro-choice."

For one, while pro-choice, I am not anti-life. And let's be real, I don't get the impression that the christian conservatives are "pro-life", they are "pro-birth." When we have hundreds of Zika babies with small heads in incubators, who will pay for this? Who will take care of kids born with severe development issues?! Our infrastructure cannot take care of the sick, poor, or special needs as it is - so it makes no sense to outlaw abortion. America does not need more crack babies, babies born into abusive families, the foster system is crumbling, CPS can barely keep up, every day I read about kids killed by shitty parents...and that sucks. Make the humane decision, and drop the mythical ideologies.

1:40pm -
You missed the point while accusing yourself of being driven crazy by people like myself. You check that box but I'll abstain.

I asked why can't it be a christian standard, I did not say it was.
I suggested that founding fathers based it on Christian values (big difference).
If you are as studied as you appear you'd know that is true.
The majority of the founders believed that religion was necessary for maintaining morals and assumed the country would remain culturally christian.
A good sample of the founding fathers were not in fact agnostic,spiritualists or atheists as you proclaim. Aside from Franklin and Jefferson, the remainder had faith based beliefs save a very few.
I do agree that other non christian beliefs were present at the founding.

The Declaration of Independence appealed to "the laws of Nature and Nature's God" and asserted that all men had basic rights "endowed by their Creator." The constitution however was void of any references to God. I realize that given the chance some (maybe you) would eradicate all reference to anything faith based.
This is why I suggested was a possible reason Trump succeeded.
I believe more people continue to believe in something greater than ourselves than those who do not. I do not mind if you don't agree. To quote Jefferson again:
" It does me no injury for my neighbor to believe in twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."

Anonymous said...

It's not about political correctness--which, constitutionally speaking, isn't a thing. That's a talk radio issue. Laws are not supposed to consider what radio talk shows consider to be "politically correct". Due process (in its various forms) and equal protection (this one is the one you have problems with, I'm guessing) are the issues. Aside fro a Scalia rant in dicta somewhere, you won't find "politically correct" in our constitutional jurisprudence.

Everyone is supposed to be treated equally under the law. Muslims, atheists, and hell, even some Christians can't be treated equally if religion is the test for a law's validity. Do you really want Christian laws? Are you the one who'd be able to throw that first stone? Should we use Catholicism as the standard for the laws, or SBC's rules? Where does that leave a Methodist like me?

This country was NOT founded on Christian beliefs. In fact, it was founded by groups who were being treated unequally in other countries because the laws in those countries were faith-based. They were running from Christian governments, not trying to establish one.

"In God We Trust" has not been on our currency for long. It was written on, and into the pledge, in response to the "Communist threat". Basically, the worst reactionaries of our times put it in, not the founding fathers. Same goes with the Texas pledge--"Under God" (which I do not say, when reciting either pledge) was inserted just a few years ago. Maybe 2010? Can't remember exactly, but recently.

The fallacy that the founding fathers wanted a Christian country, or were even Christians themselves, is one of the leading Constitution myths we have. Read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists for a founding father's (THE founding father!) idea of whether or not our church and our state should be intertwined: https://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/9806/danpre.html

Carrier will receive $700,000 a year for 10 years in incentives from the state of Indiana in exchange for keeping 1000 jobs. We look at that and think that is a good thing that 1000 families will have Christmas this year; however, there are 14 other air-conditioning companies in the state that did not get the incentives. So government is picking winners and losers; the other companies have to compete.

$7,000,000 for our new president to get a headline!

$7 million may have been better spent on benefiting all the public, not just a few!

Try the Chicago Tribune. They describe the $7m tax break over several years. Also they are reducing employment at that plant from 1400 to 1000. They are going ahead with closing a different plant in Indiana and moving those 700 jobs to the new 600m sq ft factory in Mexico.
So the new rule is to say you're moving twice the number of jobs overseas that you really planned for and then take govt tax incentives to cut the number to what you actually planed. Yup, Trump can posture and big companies get subsidies to do what they find most profitable.

The rule includes miscarriages in hospitals and clinics. The fetal tissues, no matter at the time of gestation are to be buried or cremated at the cost of the hospital or clinic. The minimum cost for a funeral home is $2 000. Burial for home miscarriages were dropped from the rule after objections in the public comments; however, if the true reason for adopting the rule was for dignity of life for the unborn, it would remain.

In our culture families bury a still born baby but not fetal tissue! This is about anti-abortion activist attempt to close abortion clinics. Burial will be too expensive and too emotional for women; an intrusion on their privacy.

Hospitals do not dispose of fetal tissue in dump yards, it is burned. So the rule is not about the health of the public; it is about stopping abortion. Women who have miscarriages in a hospital are victims; reasonable people so not bury a fetal tissue the size of a peanut! Hospitals Associations were ignored by the governor and abortion activists in passing the rule!

This is going on in other states, so it is a way around the court ruling to uphold a woman's right to an abortion. It does include miscarriage, not at home but in a hospital or clinic.

wordkyle, what we saw yesterday is government getting involved in the free market. Labor in Mexico is $12.00 a day!

High tariffs will increase the cost of products for the consumers.
