The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Christmas Vacation gets better with age. 
  • Mrs. LL screwed up plane reservations last night. I woke up this morning to see her on the phone to American Airlines at 6:30 a.m.  (That gave me great joy.)
  • Try to buy Advil Cold & Sinus with a driver's license that doesn't match your Walmart neighborhood. You'll be treated like Walter White of Breaking Bad.  I got close to saying, "Say my name.
  • How did this get by me: Police officer "Patrick Tuter fired a total of 41 shots at an unarmed suspect, Michael Allen, in the Mesquite neighborhood where the chase ended in August 2012." 41? He's on trial right now. 
  • Trump is at it again this morning. (Remember that he will have the nuclear codes.) All of you guys Own Him. 
  • And he still can't spell: 
  • I'm not sure how I loved Star Trek but have never had a moment's of interest in Star Wars or any of its many sequels. 
  • The new Baylor coach is quietly hiring major high school football coaches from across the state. That gives me great hope. 
  • Mrs. LL saw a transaction fraud on Amazon. (An X-Box.) Their customer service was fantastic. 
  • Baby, I'ts Cold Outside is a little creepy when you think about it.
  • Can we move to a different planet?: 
  • Wow: "The city of Corpus Christi urged residents late Wednesday night to not drink or use its tap water because of possible chemical contamination and Corpus Christi schools canceled classes Thursday."

Now Barry--I often respect the content of what you write, but (usually) overlook YOUR misspellings! (Unless they're REALLY funny or ironic!) :-)

wordkyle said...

BG, your Trump Derangement Disorder is in full bloom. Trump criticizes a publication and you relate that to "nuclear codes"? If you're not trolling, then you've got an actual disorder. The thing is, there's an epidemic among American Liberals these days, and you guys are enabling one another. Take every wild thought people had about Obama's birth certificate, add it to the "Bush bombed the World Trade Center," and that's the level of crazy you're displaying. How far are you willing to debase yourself for the sake of political partisanship?

854 - A potshot taken out of either partisan deception of ignorance, pal. How 'bout some context? Try this:

Donald Trump: “First of all, these are very good people that are giving me the briefings. And I say if something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one minute’s notice. I don’t need to be told … the same thing every day, every morning ― same words. ‘Sir, nothing has changed. Let’s go over it again.’ I don’t need that.”

How often do you need to hear the exact same message before you get it?

8:50 - You call the grenade lobbing that Trump does with the press "standing up to them"? I would be impressed if he actually brought forward a fact or two instead of ad hominem attacks.

And it's easier to buy meth than it is to buy the materials to make it. I would have no problem with them questioning me for buying 500 Sudafed, but I can't get the alarm over me picking up a 7 pill pack when I have a cold.

Nice logical fallacy Barry; he added an e to the end of a word and his argument is invalid.
It is strange that there is concern over computer security in regards to election results, but it was okay for Hillary to have classified items on her private server, which violated the Executive Order on the protection of classified material numerous times.
Has it occurred to the people up in arms over Russian hacking that these voting machines are not on a connected server? If a system is not connected to an external network, you can't hack it from outside.

Don't let reason get in the way of good writing.

Try not to confuse partisanship with an objection to plain old foolish or disturbing behavior. How far are you willing to debase yourself is the question. Which backpeddle or transition team pick are you supportive of? If you say all of them, then there's an argument for asking how much termite infestation is in your piers and beams.

I think 8:54 gets Barry's point.

Trump has more important things to do than check on Vanity Fair!!!!

And of course Trump makes a negative point. Graydon Carter must have done something to offend Trump's thin skin. And that infamous thin skin is related to Barry's point about Trump having the nuclear codes.

Geez. I hope we survive these 4 years.

Actual work is too boring, that was basically his excuse for not taking the briefings. The real reason is the briefs include the Russian hacking data which he needs to get swept under the new swamp. He has to ignore it all to kill the one he doesn't want to believe. Apparently the world needs to be caring about Vanity Fair's "numbers" and not Russians manipulating democracy or the polar ice melting away.
McCain is looking better and better every day as true Savior. Without a doubt Satan has decided it's more fun to possess the WH instead of the free press.

wordkyle said...

954 - "Trump has more important things to do than check on Vanity Fair!!!!" - 1) It's only your assumption that Trump is not doing those "more important things." 2) Perhaps defending himself against media attacks is one of those "important things." The media are in a concerted effort, along with Democrats, to undermine and delegitimize Trump even before he takes office. If nothing else, Trump has shown that he's willing to fight back. (And let's face it, that's what really makes Liberals irate.)

So you are talking about Trump, right?

I'm sure you can find some links about Trump questioning the birth certificate and blaming Bush for the bombings.

It is hilariously ironic that you (Barry) would call down ANYONE for a spelling error.

wordkyle said...

1002 - "The real reason is the briefs include the Russian hacking data" - Anything even remotely resembling evidence or sources for this notion? Are you just making things up out of whole cloth to satisfy your political desires?

As for the rest of your comments, can you let the rest of us know when Russia became a threat? It was sometime after Obama ridiculed Romney for such a notion. Sometime after Obama assured Medvedev that he would have "more flexibility" toward Russia after the 2012 election. And if you can name that time, then please explain how and when Obama completely bungled the foreign policy and security of the United States, and allowed Russia to become powerful enough to "manipulate democracy."

I got the message the first time. He doesn't like the "value" of the content so he walks away from it all until he can get in there and politicize the intelligence community to give him only the content that doesn't threaten his omnipotence.

Let's get behind that Nazi message.

Everyone thinks we should all get on board and unite behind the new leadership. Typically that's what happens but the problem this round is humans are hard wired not to unite with an in your face evil person so this regime will forever be a rogue island state surrounded by a moat of protest until it ultimately dies from constant seige.
Get used to it WK - Trump is simply incapable of inciting unity with those that did not drink the kool-aid - he's doomed to fail bigly if he even makes it to the OO to begin with.

The Trump Grill got a bad review yesterday in Vanity Fair:

http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/12/trump-grill-review

Trump got pissy, took it personally, and, being the child he is, tweeted.

Trump doesn't have time for security briefings, but can meet with Kanye West and go on his "love me tour" to get the cheers his ego needs.

Wordy, who is obviously well read and no dummy, will likely quit defending Trump over time.

Not even close to the actual Russian hack problem description.

mzchief said...

Let's pretend Russia did hack the DNC and the e-mail accounts of Hillary's minions (even though John Podesta was actually an idiot and got snookered by a phishing ploy whereby HE divulged his own password). It's not like the Russians wrote those e-mails or schemed to assure Hillary got the DNC nomination. The Russians merely exposed the DNC and Hillary for the scheming, malevolent dirtbags they've been for the past 30yrs. China and Russia have been hacking into government databases since Obama took office and he did NOTHING. The Russians outing Libtards is the fault of Libtards being incompetent.

Libtards can hiss and spit all they want about the outcome of the election being manipulated but it was only possible because the DNC and Hillary are two-faced, cheating scumbags.

Crazy won. Deal with it.

1057 - Shrug. His statement is true and added nothing to my point. A smart person doesn't have to be told the same thing over and over.

1036 - Trump fights back. You guys call it "pissy" or "thin-skinned." Bill Clinton and Barack Obama criticized Fox News and Rush Limbaugh personally and never raised an eyebrow. They had the media as weapons, Trump has to use Twitter. As I said, it irks Liberals when opponents fight back. (And you mischaracterized Trump's reason for not taking daily briefings. Ignorance or purposeful deception?)

1034 - Still no evidence for your claims, huh? You quickly resorted to the Nazi reference, so you must feel like you're on thin ice factually.

Because Obammy found out about it on the news just like everyone else. When you don't attend daily intel breifings, you become a lofo snowflake liberal weenie like everyone else that gets their fake news from CNN and NBC.

All the snowflakes are shaking in their slippers because Russia hacked the election with no evidence, but yet they say nothing about Debbie Was a Man Schultz swaying the election by squeezing out Burnie the Commy and Donna Brazille feeding questions from CNN to Hillary for the debate. Now there is your proof that the election was being swayed by weenies.

Star Trek/Star Wars - honestly it isn't that surprising. Star Trek is about intrepid explorers pushing their knowledge of the frontier further and further, like a sci fi western. Star Wars is Greek tragedy set in galaxy far, far away. Both are good but for completely different fundamental reasons. They just both so happen to have "Star" in their titles.

No, he doesn't. That's the point.

I don't want my President tweeting about the editor-in-chief of a magazine with a 1.2 million circulation because one of his restaurants got a bad review.

If he is going to attack everyone that criticizes him over the next 4 years, he's going to sending out a lot of tweets. Even the "great" Presidents of the past had many detractors.

1253 - So your only viable option for Trump is for him to take a beating without resisting? Obama didn't. Clinton didn't. The difference is that they had the media as a tool, and Trump doesn't. The media assault on him is unprecedented. To his credit he refuses to be their punching bag. That he has to find nontraditional ways to defend himself is not surprising.

It's interesting that we're mad at Russia for influencing the election. Isn't that like being mad at a person who is your friend, has never really liked your significant other very much, so followed your significant other around and actually caught him or her cheating on you, and then told you about it? And we're mad at the friend, not the cheater? And why is it so horrible to have a Secretary of State who has GOOD relationships in Russia? And why is it so horrible for Trump to appoint successful, globally minded business leaders to be in charge for a while?

You guys have always believed the silly caricatures you create in your own minds, but with Trump your minds have completely snapped. Heretofore normal people make -- in complete seriousness -- the most outrageous claims. Barry Green, a family man with a respectable business and reputation, spouts about "nuclear codes" because Trump tweeted a response to a magazine.

458 - You cite sitting presidents, after they've done something while in office. Trump is the president-elect, and hasn't taken a single action as president. And I daresay that the media in those other examples (with the possible exception of Bush) didn't portray the president as ending civilization as we know it.

(And your citing Obama as anything other than the media's darling is just too cute for words.)

You must be forgetting about the birth certificate thing and the fact is partially black.

You know you have a better memory than that.

You are also forgetting the insults slung at the "sitting" Presidents while they were running at office.

Trump misdirected the public while he ran for President, telling them to look at Hillary's emails when he had no foreign policy, bragged about being smarter than generals while he wouldn't release his tax returns.

So thanks again for providing more examples of how you selectively pursue your arguments.

You sell nothing but snake oil.

Obama was coddled by the media from the get-go. He's "historic," remember? Unvetted and uninvestigated as a candidate, beyond criticism as President. (Criticism by anyone unaffected by his historicalness was invariably met with accusations of racism.) And let's not forget that Nobel prize he was awarded for being historic.
