The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • "Now, I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject," Trump said. "Nobody knew health care could be so complicated." What a moron. 
  • Name these Texans (there are three that I don't know):
  • From Modern Family as Jay spends money wildly: "You can't take it with you!" His younger wife, Gloria, replied: "But we'll still be here!" At that moment as we were watching it together, Mrs. LL looked at me. 
  • Kellyanne!
  • Football season is over which means I no longer have to hear about Peter King. There is no bigger blowhard than that guy. He was on The Ticket every week and would start every sentence with "In my opinion . . ." or "Based upon the facts that have been given to me at this time . . . " Sheesh. Take a stand. 
  • Watch State Sen. Don Huffines disrespecting Richardson ISD 8th graders.
  • At a driver's license hearing in Denton yesterday, I ended up in a room with three Wise County deputies. Funny guys. Good guys. (One of them I've seen numerous times on video and have always been impressed with the way he handles DWI cases. He will actually say to a motorist, "I want you to understand everything that is going on because I want you to understand your constitutional rights. And you don't have to do anything.")
  • Could it be any warmer this morning? And, man, did I use a lot of Round Up this weekend. 
  • The Eighth Grader in the House will have to have minor foot surgery. ("Minor" because it isn't happening to me.)
  • I think people are driving crazier and crazier. And they drive stupidly. I'll see some guy just weave in and out of traffic at a high speed only to end up right beside me at a red light 100 yards ahead.

During one heated exchange, a woman told Huffines that it wasn't right to send money to private schools that was meant to help public schools.
"What makes you think it's your money?" Huffines responded

"If you like your doctor....you can keep him"

What a moron. Complete failure.

I'm not a big fan of Peter King, either. But saying "Take a stand" with those two quotes is ridiculous.
"In my opinion..." IS taking a stand. He's stating what he thinks about a topic.
"Based upon the facts..." doesn't require taking a stand, unless you disagree with said facts.

People have always been driving stupidly. It's just compounded recently with all the modern distractions

I can't agree with your last bullet point more. I drive an older vehicle and in order to try to make it run as long as I can I just "putt" around it amazes me how angry people get when they blow by me only to arrive at a said destination at the same time.

Holy smokes- I heard the Musers talk about that Kellyanne Conway (or whatever her name is) picture this morning.

They're right- it looks like the cover art to a pron movie!

Something IS about to break out there!

I am stumped by two of them. The old lady on the right of the 2nd row and the man in between SRV and Ann Richards. He appears to be in jail, so not sure why he is included.

Health care is not complicated at all, actually, because it is unsolvable at this point. It's over. We have tens of millions of people that need tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical care over their lives; and can't pay for it yet feel entitled to it. The equation is upside down and getting worse. We are unhealthy, fat, lazy and have a whole bunch of bad habits. "What about Sweden?" "What about so and so?". Yeah, sure...if you don't mind eating healthy, getting exercise, and paying 80% of what you make to the government...then sure...health care for everyone.

Nice job by the photographer of deliberately off-centering the picture to make sure that Conway, who clearly thought she was out of intended frame, was not.

10:46 is spot on. Longer life and health BENEFITS are for the wealthy. While I want healthcare for everyone, it isn't plausible. It's no difference than an automobile: not everyone gets the Porsche, and some get nothing. I didn't make the rules, just trying to get around the board.

9:39 - Are you sure you've got the colloquialism right?! I think you mean "out-kicked your coverage." Your comment tone suggested you've got it all figured out, but...

Affordable healthcare is not a right. We need the $54b for military and nukes.

The fact that Senator Huffines went all pissy with visiting 8th Graders tells you everything about the man's character. Everything. He's even worse than me and that's saying something.

Crazy drivers are crazy. I love to watch them get caught at the red light ahead. I slow down, coasting up toward the light and changing lanes as I arrive at the intersection. The light changes as I get there and am able to proceed past Mr. Crazy without stopping or putting wear on my brakes and tires. It helps my fuel mileage also. Then what? - the crazy driver charges past me once more only to catch the next light and burn up his brake linings some more as we do a repeat.

I always feel like I should double check a triple fake quote, but I'll let him go today. I'm just glad to get a mention.

At least he doesn't think Larry's bookstore looks like a jail. Looks like Ernest T missed his cLling in the DeVoss education administration. They only need one book.

And for the rest of you, when you outrun your coverage, that's generally called a touchdown. Not sure why that's a bad thing. Maybe you're from Bridgeport and just don't know what one looks like.

Sorry 9:36, the Texas Voter Law has not yet upheld by the Feds as legal. Only we, as the Court of Last Resort, can do that. All that happened is that everyone's favorite cracker, Attorney General Sessions, has taken a pass and withdrawn the U. S. Government from the court proceedings. He doesn't have a problem with old people, poor people, or minorities having a harder time getting a state issued ID card. Those folks just shouldn't vote, according to him.

You do realize that Conway was sitting like that on the couch, and messing with her phone...because she was also taking pictures of the group. There are additional photos that provide the full context.

Anonymous said...

Conway was tucked up on the couch like that so she 1) would not be in the line of the shot by the photographer and 2) so she could lean in and take some pictures with her phone. The full story, also known as the truth, is now known. But hey, let's whip up on her anyway.

Where's the logic in your side of the aisle's current health care process that makes the patient and doctor the last ones to be consulted in a treatment process?

Health care should not be complicated. It should be between me and my doctor, no one else.

Love the misplaced, out of context angst over Conway needing to get in a spot to take pictures. It's DEFINITELY more disrespectful than, say, a blue dress getting busy under the desk or kicking back and putting your shoes up on the desk..as mad popular by certain other, recent administrations.
