The Campaign For DA

12.14.2016

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Alan Thicke has died. (I'll do a post in a couple of hours of everyone who has died this year. 2016 might be the worst year in the history of ever.)
  • There were low flying planes over Manhattan last night freaking everyone out. Remember I mentioned "rumbling" over the metroplex a few days back?
  • The worst weatherman in DFW history is trolling us this morning:
  • I'm in charge of the outdoor Christmas lights. Mrs. LL is in charge of the indoors. I went to bed early as she (finally - sorry, babe) got on it last night. She woke me up with, "That kid won't get off SnapChat!" as she tried to have a memorable evening with Eighth Grader in the House.
  • One odd thing is that my friends call me "BG". I don't know how that started. 
  • Baylor plays at Duke in football next year. I might put that on my bucket list. It's not a football school, but I'd love to see North Carolina's basketball arena and then travel up  "Tobacco Road" to Duke. I'm guessing both campuses are top notch. 
  • When I come up with ideas like that Mrs. LL yells, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" (Mark.)
  • "Christmas in the Lone Star state has no greater defender than Attorney General Ken Paxton. So when he read my column about a middle school in Killeen that tried to censor the true meaning of Christmas, he decided it was time to jingle somebody’s bells." Paxton is a moron. Replace it with a Muslim prayer and how do you feel?
  • One of the weirdest sports stories of the year is Wake Forest's radio guy leaking plays to opponents. Gambling motive?
  • Every day - several times, mind you - I stop down and remember Trump was elected as President of the United States of America.

In regards to the "BG" label, we should remember your OLDEST friends often refer to you as Pigeye.

So when you stop to remember that Trump is our president, do you burst into tears? I do. Keep waiting for it to stop but with each new appointment, the feeling in the gut of my stomach is worse and worse.

Last night my husband asked if we were going to be ok. I answered that we are white upperclass heteros in Texas. We will be fine. Unless of course China decides to nuke us or Putin/Trump's bromance falls apart. Then none of it matters.

Unfortunately, Barry, Christmas has EVERYTHING to do with ONLY ONE SOMEBODY, so you can't filter it out--hence the law. Doubt they'll come up with a Christmas Muslim prayer.

Barry, I've read your post and ENJOY it very much. I appreciate your personal time that you put into it. HOWEVER, I'm growing very tired of your anti Trump attitude. MOVE ON and let it go. Get back to all your quirky bullets and interesting points to ponder over and discuss. YOU'VE BEAT THAT DEAD HORSE TO DEATH!!!!

I think I can solve the nickname conundrum. See, you're hearing 'BG', but what they're saying is BeeGee. Probably started from your habit of doing karate kicks in the air and stating "I'm Barry !@#$ing Green, and I'm not gonna take any crap from nobody!"
And then there's your theme song:
Talkin' it up
On the Barry Green blo-o-o-g
Crushin' on Britney
Gripin' 'bout all the current issues

But then, it could just be because your initials are B & G. Who knows?

Those North Carolina campuses are gorgeous! But UVA wins that category by a landslide! Not to be missed. ;)

Given that Muslims don't celebrate Christmas in the manner that we do, I suppose it would just be their normal - all I want is a Goat and underage boy type of prayer.

When President Obama gushes over every muslim holiday he can think of, in my mind I think, "to each his own"

And besides, if anyone told Isis... errr I mean the followers of the religion of peace that they couldn't do something. They wouldn't go to Ken Paxton.

Come to think of it, they do possess some almost texan qualities. Instead of grabbing their guns, they'll just build an alarm clock and go all aloha snackbar on us.

I feel better about trump in Washington than I do about perry now being in Washington. Feels like one of my old bad LSD trips. Seriously - perry a national leader? Crazy.

Do y'all realize that there are Jews in this country too? Also, Jesus wasn't born on 12/25, but that was the day of a Pagan Holiday and the Christians took that day and many of the Pagan traditions to help bring people into the flock.

After seeing how Christians have behaved during this election, why would anyone want to be one?

If we lived in a country where muslum rule I would probably be ok with it.
But I don't, I live in The United States of America. And, just for the record, I'm am as sick and tired of people coming to my country and getting offended with our beliefs. You don't like it, go home.

And how did Christians behave? I'm a Christian. Do you know me or see how I behaved during election time?

Good Grief!!!!!! Peace and blessing to you during this Holy Season.

Over 80 percent of Americans consider themselves christians so I'm thinking Merry Christmas is ok but why is it not ok to say Happy Holidays just in case the person you are greeting is Jewish or another religion and to me Happy Holidays means Merry Christmas and Happy New Year but Christians will get all upset if they hear that. Don't get it!! I feel like Happy Holidays is more inclusive but christianity isn't as inclusive or tolerant of differences as it used to be.

Every day I stop down and remember that Obammy is not going to be president anymore.

One question for snowflake weenies, If Trump was elected because of white supremacy turnout, why didn't they turn out to defeat a black man for president?

Anonymous said...

Barry, I think you are right on the precipice (there's no way that's a word) of going from the bargaining to depression stage of grief.

Look, you simply have to accept the fact that people were willing to vote a boorish troll (many while holding their noses) into the office over someone who is simply unlikable, dishonest, incompetent, and self serving.

She should have faced the music in the private server and you know when you listened to Comey, he stated every element of the crime....but added an extra to save her ass. The American people are not as dumb as snooty leftists believe them to be.

10:07 - I was born in this country. I am 100% anglo/Texan and I don't get offended by your beliefs. I put all of that into the same bag as Santa. Hey, if it makes the kids happy, what's it going to hurt.

What I do mind is when my 5-year old starts talking about how Christmas is Jesus' birthday. When I ask him where he heard that, he replied that his public education teacher told him. I have a problem with a public school teaching my kids magical stories of deification and shenanigans. You guys keep to teaching reading, writing, 'rithmatic - and I'll take care of the spiritualism.

BG's point is not about Muslims...its about Christians. Know your place. You want God in school, it's called Sunday school.

Maybe Paxton realizes that Islam isn't a religion, but an ideology started by a goat humping, baby raping pervert warlord.

Does Paxton not know that Christmas (wasn't originally called Christmas) was originally a Pagan Holiday.

RE: 8:52, 10:05, and 10:10AM;

We appreciate your concern. If you are worried about rumors I would talk to your Lead/Sr. Lead/Supervisor. Or feel free to ask me ;)

In this case those rumors are incorrect. We were honored to host a special event at the Decatur Civic Center to recognize a group of employees who accomplished some special things this year. It wasn't a Christmas event for upper management. Although there were a few managers who attended to help show the company's appreciation for this group of employees.

We are blessed with great employees who work hard to get the job done, but also to take care of each other when there are needs. The comments from 10:05 allude to that. We recently came to together to help and will do so again when the need arises.

Hope your day gets better,

DF POCO Pete

" replace with Muslim..." That is OK BG. I get it but the only problem with that idea is we are a Christian nation founded on Christian ideals by men who were raised by Christian men and women.

Rumblings over the Metroplex? Duh. When jets are testing at full engine power at the NAS and the direction of take off, cloud cover, winds, etc. are just right, the sounds of the engines can carry quite far. It is hardly a mystery. What's next? "I'm out here at the airport and I think there's something going on. Maybe I should call the police or email Channel 5. I keep hearing the sound of airplanes."

Muslim prayer has nothing to do with Christmas. Thank God! :-)

This was not standard surveillance. Helicopters are more mobile, and can drop lower than a C-130. This C-130 was loaded with special equipment to do electronic surveillance, ie chatter done by would-be terrorists. It is not just chatter, and the source of the chatter, that can be located, but also any radioactive material. Yes, this is related to protecting the President Elect – Trump – at home in Trump Towers. The Secret Service and Department of Defense will be relieved to see Trump move to more defensible residences, like the White House.
