The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • After suffering from painful sinuses that kept me down for almost four full days and the weekend, let me praise the greatness of the Z-Pac. I had never taken that before and it worked like a miracle.
  • I think Wise County may have a well fire on the south side of the county in the Boyd-Rhome-Decatur triangle. It's one of those that looks like a giant flame thrower aimed at the sky this morning.
  • Bob Stoops on his woman slugging player Joe Mixon yesterday on what would happen if the incident happened today: "Two and a half years later, dismissal is really the only thing that's possible." Huh? You saw the tape back then. What's different about today?
  • There is a hero out there somewhere: 
  • Anyone know anyone in Bridgeport who will rake leaves, bag them (or put them in a trailer), and haul them off? Residential, but an above average sized job. 
  • This is worth following:
  • "Mississippi police have arrested a man for allegedly throwing a homemade explosive device into a Walmart store on Sunday because he was angry employees there stopped selling Confederate flag paraphernalia." Let's call it what it is: Radical White Southern American Racist Terrorism. 
  • Everyone reported that former OU coach Barry Switzer met with Trump because Switzer told the media he did after coming out of the elevators at Trump Tower. Now Switzer says he was just joking and had only gone up to Starbucks. 
  • [For hardcore Ticket fans only: The funniest thing you'll see all year.]
  • Am I out of the loop on the "Billy on The Street" bit? I keep seeing references to it, watched about a minute of one, was unimpressed, and much of it seemed staged. Or has no one else even heard about it?
  • I've yet to see Love, Actually this Christmas. Still my favorite. (And I just realized one of the three hot chicks the guy runs into in America at the bar near the end of the movie is January Jones -- later of Mad Men.)

The DPD Shooting Range is out in the middle of nowhere by the lake. Not a bad place to dump a body.

They also forgot the rule, "I before E except after C" which doesn't always work, but it does here. It's KIEST Blvd (used to live not far from there).

Susan Combs as Secretary of Agriculture possibly? Yikes! Remember her trainwreck administering the major appliance energy credit voucher program as Texas Comptroller? Lady couldn't manage her way out of a wet paper bag. Of course, that is just my unbiased opinion.

Fair enough. Why don't liberals have the nuts to the same about radical Islamists?

And by the way...I think you need to fine tune your stupid comment filter. I think it really means you are becoming a Geeding. That would be a shame.

Someone please explain why the state government has declared war on Planned Parenthood?

Am I in the minority that thinks the government should have ZERO business telling women and their families what they can and cannot do with their own bodies?

The most amusing aspect of the argument that "Pro-lifers" make is that they are pro-life, yet those same people are pro-death sentences. So how can you seriously say that you are pro-life, yet agree with death sentence? Isn't being pro-life mean pro-life for everyone?

What these pro-lifers don't realize is that it will cost the state much more to provide for all of the unwanted children that will more than likely be awarded to the state because the mother may not have wanted to keep the child. It sounds heartless, but it's a reality.

It nobody's business but the woman and her family. They're choice. Plain and simple.

You're like Mini-Morris Dees, Jr. The guy made a killing from donations of gullible northern liberals and self-loathing Southerners by whipping up racist antagonism and perpetuating the stereotype of southern redneck culture.

You want your leaves raked and hauled off? Check out "Cut and Grow" lawn service. Based in Runaway Bay and Bridgeport, they do work all around the county and have the highest ratings from customers, including me. I've used them for well over 10 years and love their work. Their number is 683-3121.

thinking the same.....therefore ZERO tax money to fund PP........but your donations are welcome

wordkyle said...

911 - "...the government should have ZERO business telling women..." Yet you want that same government to pay for their abortions. And make no mistake, Planned Parenthood is in the abortion business. A hundred pregnant women walk into PP, 98 of them have abortions. It's their biggest money maker, after government subsidies. Without that abortion revenue, PP couldn't afford Cecile Richards' $600,000 annual compensation.

A black man has been arrested and charged with burning an African-American church in Greenville, Miss. last month and defacing its outer walls with “Vote Trump” graffiti.

The Mississippi state police arrested Andrew McClinton, 45, on Wednesday and charged him with first-degree arson of a place of worship, Warren Strain, a spokesman with the Mississippi Department of Public Safety told The Daily Caller.

McClinton allegedly set first to Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, where he is a member, on Nov. 1, a week before the election. The fire destroyed 80 percent of the church. A GoFundMe account raised more than $240,000 to repair the facility.

9:11 Pro-choice person; I think the other commenters have covered the revenue enhancement aspect of the PP issue. Pull your head out it’s only about the cash not women’s rights. As to being pro-death penalty, hell yes they are reaping the consequences of their choices. What has the aborted fetus done to deserve to be put to death?

10: When in the history of ever have you heard of a black person being charged with a hate crime?

i'm not a Stoops fan and clearly he kept the kid around because he knew the talent would help him win. No argument there. However, I would also add, that it is, and should be, much easier to make that decision with an 18 year old than it should be a 21 year old. So the two and a half years would, in my opinion, factor into the decision as far as Stoops being interpreted as saying, look, if this had happened with a 20 or 21 year old player we wouldn't have any options but for an immediate suspension from the team.

The story is from November 2, 2015. You're really reaching to make another of your loony points about racism or who knows what. Sheesh.

The most disenfranchised humans are unborn children, not minorities - and certainly not women. It is wrong to kill an unborn child, and they should have the full protection of the government.

A child is not an appendage that can be removed willy-nilly. Grow up, buy some birth control, and stop murdering unborn kids. Plain and simple.

911,

A woman can and should be able to do anything she wants with her own body.

However she should not be able to kill another human being, within the US.

So, just to be clear, she can do whatever she wants with her own body, but not kill another body.

That is murder.

Earth to Wordy the big bad government doesn't allow its funds to be used for abortions and hasn't for many years. And your 98% figure of women who use PP do so for abortions is a LIE of proportions not seen since your hero Trump saying millions and millions of illegals voted in the Presidential election. What a foolish , foolish person you are if you believe that

As much as Stoops should have handled this differently, the last thing he and OU need to do is give in to the media mantra to add to the kids discipline. The kid did his time...and the video has nothing new except to give the media something to sensationalize about.

The media's attempt to drive their mantra about what any entity should do is disgusting. Generally , they paint a wide brush with only surface details and hearsay and convict. Baylor is the best example.

Sorry, kids, I did the research on PP years ago. My original figures were from 2008, so I've updated to 2012, the year figures were most available, and my total was indeed wrong. When 100 pregnant women enter Planned Parenthood, 94 of them have abortions. To wit:

A pregnant woman enters PP. That woman will either a) Receive prenatal care to help her baby, making her a "prenatal client" or b) Receive help placing the baby for adoption; (These first two may overlap;) or c) Receive an abortion. (Abortions don't require "prenatal care.")

Using info from Planned Parenthood, we find that in 2012 PP had 19,506 prenatal clients, 2197 aid with adoption clients, and performed 327,166 abortions. Of the 348,869 pregnancies, at least 93.8% ended in abortion.

Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill. An unborn child has a better chance at life by being born in the back of a taxi.

I'm pro-life and do not like the abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood, at all.

That being said, the best way to prevent abortions is to provide accessible birth control, health care, and education to non-pregnant women.

So far, Planned Parenthood does more of that than anyone else. Well, they did, until their funding (none of which funded abortions) got cut. Now we'll have an uptick in STDs and unwanted pregnancies, which will lead to unwanted births, which will lead to unwanted kids, which will lead to unwanted Medicaid recipients, criminals, and welfare recipients.

See how that works?

Correct, 1:23--except for research, they do not sell fetal tissue.

By the way, companies that Republicans own stock in buy up that tissue, and use the Hell out of it. It is not illegal to sell for that purpose, and all videos claiming to expose PP for selling it illegally have been debunked.

The fact of the matter is that abortion is humane. It is an unfortunate fact of life. As my brother says, people are not pro-life, they are pro-birth. It is not without its irony that the pro-choice people are often more open to welfare systems and support for the less economically privileged. Contrarily, pro-birth folks are often more inclined to ignore the poor, the mentally ill, and disenfranchised.

And before some dumbass starts talking about how people don't "want to work" - just save it. And then save discussions of how the church should get involved.

You should just learn to deal with the fact that it is more humane (and economically responsible - for you folks who can't prioritize anything but money) to terminate a pregnancy in the early stages of development, than to force such births, only to have babies put in trash bags, born with drug addictions or deformities, or growing up in a negligent environment, further perpetuating the issue. Don't even get me started on CPS and foster programs.

You people want to sit on your soapbox and profess your righteousness. If you have never been in that situation, then you should probably refrain from offering and opinion. Nobody is forcing abortions. Nobody will kill your kids.



1:43 - Do you feel like your comment was funny? Helpful? Nice heart you've got there. Suppose he/she is still in pain over his/her decision? Do you feel good now that you called him/her out on it? Are you some sort of awesome person that never makes mistakes? While it may be true, you are definitely a big person for pointing it out. I hope you read this and reflect on your lack of soul this holiday season. Merry Christmas.

6:42. You could use that same logic to justify killing drug addicts, criminals and the mentally ill. It would save money and make us a better society, right? Wrong is wrong, no matter how you try to justify it. A wise man once told me there is no right way to do a wrong thing. Maybe you can reflect on that during the Christmas season.
