The Campaign For DA

12.08.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • For the second time this year, we have a student found dead in an Aggie fraternity house.
  • Trump, unlike myself, is no Sports Genius:
  • So we are going to have an oil friendly guy as head of the EPA, a military guy on the we-spy-on-Americans NSA, and the former CEO of WWE will head the Small Business Administration. Ummkay.
  • I was wrong. Cornyn and Cruz actually lost that queso challenge. Note: If you are going to do a publicity stunt, don't embarrass yourself. 
  • College Sports (1) Alabama's offensive coordinator Lane Kiffen is reportedly taking over the head coaching job at Houston. Why? I'd rather be the OC for Alabama. (2) Baylor's new head football coach is the son of a Baptist minister and you can tell. (3) Former Aggie and Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie is retiring mid-season from his gig at Ranger College. He sites health issues, but there's been a lot going on with that guy in recent years, (4) And this . . . 
  • A bill has been introduced in the Texas legislature to "teach 9th graders how to interact with cops to 'reduce escalated and too often deadly' encounters." I bet it will be 100% "You will respect their authority!" and 0% "know your rights." 
  • That rollover wreck in Wise County yesterday that killed a woman and injured her four year old daughter is heartbreaking. I'm pretty sure she worked for a real estate agency in Dallas. 
  • And that wreck that killed a man at the Decatur baseball fields is really bizarre. The day after, there were a lot of people looking at the scene trying to figure out how it could have happened and how the car ended up in the infield. 
  • "AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin attorney, who filed nearly 400 lawsuits against local businesses for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, has been slapped with more than $176,000 in penalties for his actions and conduct in federal court, according to an order filed Wednesday." You don't see that very often

HOW ABOUT WE LET SNOWFLAKE LAW FIRM, PLLC TEACH THEM 9TH GRADERS HOW TO ASSERT THEIR RIGHTS AKA GET A BULLET IN THE HEAD?

Watch the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's website and you will note there are 10 or so teens found dead in a weeks time..overdoes, hangings, gunshots...would not be surprising for quite a few per year would be found in a college dorm..the odds are in that favor.

How about parents teach their children to respect authority (badge or not) instead of relying on government funded educators to do so? This is nuts.

9th grade behavior police officer law....Another crutch to relieve irresponsible liberal parents from doing their parent job.

Don't know what you're worrying about...by the time the curriculum is developed...those 9th graders gonna know their rights

Still gonna thug

On the 9th graders issue: How about if they learn their rights but learn that if you are dealing with an officer who is unaware or you think is wrong--you go along respectfully and let the lawyer your parents hire work it out? Seems like being respectful and getting the cop educated or reprimanded for his issues later is better than getting pistol whipped or shot in the street for being a smart ass punk.

The lady who died yesterday in the 287 wreck is a realtor at Caldwell in Dallas. I checked her fb pages for more info...her passenger supposedly lives in Okla...I would assume that was where they were headed. They said she smelled of alcohol..but she may not have been drunk...perhaps she had sobored up without changing her clothes and driving. The crash was at the 4421 curve of 287. I think she probably fell asleep and her vehicle missed the curve and went straight into the median...poor girl..her little girl has a daddy who loves her...they were divorced.

That wreck in Decatur at the ballpark could easily happen if you are speeding and miss the curve..when you jump a curb it's all over...so much power in force. Why he was speeding is the question: most would think drinking, falling asleep or passing out with a medical condition. I have noticed people driving too fast in that area even when it is wet.

9:18 AM shouldn't need to get a lawyer involved. Only the lawyer wins. Liberal parents unable to parent.

What attributes can I look for to determine if someone is the child of a Baptist preacher? I'm pretty sure I can spot a Church of Christ preacher's kid but Baptists are a little more elusive.

I was wrong: WOW
Heartbreaking wreck that killed woman: Yes, but heavy odor of alcohol at 5:32 am is also heartbreaking. Experience says...don't drink and drive, folks. It is never worth it.

9th graders and new course: What a beating! I taught "Just Say No" and a plethora of other social issues courses. We were poorly trained, given mega-notebooks full of crap to cover, and 30-minutes every week to NOT teach curriculum, but instead teach the social issues classes. The time was usually at the end of the day, so anyone who coached or drove a bus was unavailable. Their classes got dumped on someone else.

Also 9th graders and new course--We don't need a course. Just show them the YouTube video of Chris Rock on "How NOT to get your ass kicked by the POlice". It's all they need to know! Educators might object to some of the language, tho! :-)

HEY GREEN NOTHING ON THE COP KILLING IN GA? THE KILLER MUST NOT HAVE BEEN WHITE OR YOU WOULD HAVE ALREADY POSTED THE PIC.

I'm ok with local police teaching such a course but not untrained teachers forced to intergrate another new state mandate from our ledge that preaches local control until someone local does something they don't like. Also lets make sure the said police are trained in how to de-escalate situations when at all possible. No Mr. Law enforcement red neck I'm not saying police are at fault just stating training and discussions between police and young people needs to be taken seriously by both.

"So we are going to have an oil friendly guy as head of the EPA"

And Al Gore and Leo DeCrappio have been summoned to Trump Towers to kiss the ring of Trump. These two fruitcakes think that they have input on the EPA. Boy, do they have egg on their face or what?

Anybody with at least a half of a brain(that leaves out all libtard weenies) believes that a marine general would be more qualified to head the Homeland Security with over 240 thousand employees, than a lawyer with no experience in security.

Trump tweeting about Manziel with statements like that says a lot about the mental capacity of our future President.

Finally we have some guys that know what they are talking about! Who better to run the EPA than someone who profits off oil?! It only makes sense... And yeah, that WWE chick really knows her stuff! Remember when WWE was WWF? She handled that flawlessly, all while taking a folding chair to the face! Pure genius.

And great point 9:14 - there are WAY too many libtard parents not raising their kids. It makes me think of the afluenza kid whose dad owned Cleburne Sheet Metal - classic example. Also the police officers son who was tased, thrown to the ground, and ultimately got brain damage. Great work guys - keep it up!

Remember to wear your "Trump won! Get over it!" shirts at your company holiday parties. That way people know who's got it all figured out.

I am sure this Respect the Law course will be just as effective as the old DARE program was. We certainly don't have a problem with drugs in schools these days thanks to all those t-shirts passed out, cop cars souped up & displayed to inspire kids, and cops just walking around the campus to put the kids at ease. Yea, that worked so well. (written in sarcasm font).

How I taught my kids:

You can be right as rain and dead as hell.
Or, do as the officer says, even if wrong and stay alive to argue another day.

Snowflakes have the "Right" to say anything they want. Others have the freedom to punch them in the face if willing to take consequences.

Public place, you try to go in, a 300 lb MMA fighter says you aint going in, well you can go in as your right, and take the distinct chance your arm gets ripped off, if it does its part you fault you were warned. Or, you can back off and live to protest indignation in a safe place another day.
