The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts




  • Fox 4 had a graphic last night during a story about Zuzu which read, "College Student Murdered." Has that been established yet?
  • They also had a story about a road in Decatur ISD's jurisdiction which is so bad because of potholes that school buses can't go down it. (It looks like it is a private road.) Didn't the County Commissioners decide to annex and maintain a road going to David's Western Wear off of 287 a couple of months back? Priorities?
  • So Sen. Elizabeth Warren was shut down in the Senate yesterday for reading a letter from 1986 by Coretta Scott King in opposition to Jeff Sessions -- then a federal district judge nominee and now the attorney general nominee,  Nice optics, boys. (Note: He couldn't even get confirmed back then because of racist views. And that was in 1986. It was hard to be considered a racist in Washington in 1986.) 
  • When Trump spoke in front of the  CIA’s Memorial Wall a couple of weeks back he said the had been on the cover of Time magazine more than any other anyone. What a lie. He had been on it 11 times. Richard Nixon was on it 55 times. President Obama was on it 12 times in 2008 alone. And why do his followers not care about his habitual lies? 
  • I don't need to run for a local election. I need to be a behind-the-scenes campaign manager. If I could only get my friends to say in public what they tell me in private. 
  • Trump this morning. They need more weapons? They are already militarized.
  • Trump said this morning that the Judiciary/Separation of Power is "politics" in the case about his Muslim ban:
  • He may be the greatest gift that Liberally Lean has ever received. 
  • Lt. Governor Dan Patrick wants the Texas Rangers to investigate the theft of Tom Brady's jersey. I agree with Craig Miller of the Ticket: He is the biggest moron in Texas politics in the history of ever.

Elizabeth Warren is censured for reading something already on Senate records but Ted Cruz wasn't censured when he called Mitch (the snitch) McConnell a liar on the senate floor. Don't try to say it wasn't political.

pretty sure it has been, either that or she dug her own grave, wrapped herself in plastic and covered her self up.

What you left-wing moonbats don't realize is that there are very few "Trump Followers." The majority of the population, including myself, chose the better of two horrible options. I would rather deal with Trump's silly lies than Hillary's blatant and dangerous lies.

Warren was not in trouble because she read words from King. She is in trouble because they have a rule that you cannot disparage another member from the microphone. When she called him racist, that is when she got in trouble. Another case of the Democrats only telling you what they want you to know.

As for Law Enforcement, they do need assistance. We have just had a President who has been on the side of protestors for the previous 8 years. Officers cannot make a move without worrying about criticism from everyone. Can you imagine having to make a split-second decision that might mean you or someone else losing their life? I can't imagine doing it, but I honor the people who do have to make a choice like that.

I don't think they're worried about the optics. They elected a total misogynist racist lunatic into office. It seems to be working for them.

I support LEO and always have, but this arms race is ridiculous. Every cop (an exaggeration, but it seems that way) suits up like they are going to battle. Teaching a cop to draw faster, not how to analyze a situation first. Giving them armored vehicles with gun ports and 50 caliber weapons. And if you question it, you are an Obama-loving cop hating liberal. This is insane. The only thing that could be done to upgrade cop equipment now is put machine guns on door mounts in helicopters and hellfire missiles on unmanned observation drones. That will certainly get speeding on I-35 under control.

I don't disagree with your criticism of the city annexing the road to David's, but it sure sounds like a case of "oh yeah, what about X?" logic.
Should the city annex every private road that's impassable for a school bus? Or tell the owner of the PR that they'll have to pick up their kids at the closest point that's safe for the bus to travel on? The kids can't hoof it. They might have to actually look away from their phones for a second and miss one of a million posts that would make them LOL or meh something (that's old-timer terms for whatever the youngsters are saying now)

In defense of Wise County and the roads, you do need to realize that Decatur and Wise County make a lot of tax money (sales and property tax) off of NRS. No matter what your feelings are about them, they may have actually paid for the road with their tax money.

Anonymous said...

The county is generally ready to accept new roads built to exacting and minutely specific TXDOT standards. It's that old stuff where some good ole boy spread a little gravel and then poured oil on it and called it a road that is eating the county's budgetary lunch now, 25 years later. This is why it's hard and expensive to develop in Wise County now. But this is no different than any other place and to turn back the clock to lower standards is a really bad idea for a lot of reasons.

Captain Eddie said...

Let's see . . . . . where do I begin. Your first bullet point asked if Zuzu's death in Alpine was murder or not. CLUE . . . . . Body found in a shallow grave stuffed in plastic bags . . . . . Yup, I'd say murder. I don't think she put herself in those bags and buried herself . . . . . but, that's none of my business.

Second bullet point . . . . "Trump lied about being on the cover of TIME magazine more than anyone else"? OH, THE INHUMANITY OF IT ALL!!!! Were you asleep all of those years Obama lied ON A DAILY BASIS? About SERIOUS stuff?? I'm glad you're not a judge in Wise County. I would happily MOVE to another county if you were. (SMH) The bias that flows from your blog is suffocating. No big deal - I'm biased, too. But you act so surprised; bordering ALARMED. Seriously ?? Sometimes I don't know whether to laugh with you or laugh at you. Hang in there, cupcake.

And lastly . . . . "Trump this morning. They need more weapons? They are already militarized." WHO'S THEY?? The military? Secret Service? Border Patrol? Police?

Skippy, Muslim ban? Really? So when Trump builds the wall are you going to call it a Catholic ban?

Trump said this when talking to a bunch of sheriffs today:

“I was a good student. I understand things. I comprehend very well, OK? Better than, I think, almost anybody."

He is truly delusional.

mzchief said...


I sorta listened to Trump's pandering, pontificating speech at the Law Enforcement Conference. All I could really take away from that staged ass-kissing was WTHell additional weaponry does Trump want to give LEO? Perhaps weaponized drones?

The County will only accept roads that are in good condition and meet certain requirements. They won't take roads that are in disrepair. The HOA or Developer are responsible for the Oliver Creek roads. Once repaired, the county would take them.

I don't feel like looking up the context of what Trump was talking about when he mentioned weapons. But was he referring to projectile-firing weapons, or defensive items such as body armor and riot gear? Or weapons in the figurative sense, like plate readers, drones, bodycams, or other info gathering means?
Technologically, crime fighting has got to keep up with, uh...crime doing?

It is possible the young lady died of natural causes or caused her own death, like a suicide. How her body was treated after her death, she obviously would have nothing to do with, but how her body was treated after her death does not necessarily indicate that she was murdered, just that she died somehow, which is what the medical examiner will help determine.

Talking about militarized law enforcement, let's take a trip down memory lane. It was only a few decades backs that several area sheriffs chose not to wear a huge pistol and holster as part of their uniform. They only wore the badge of their elected office. That sent a message that they didn't need a hogleg strapped to their leg to enforce the laws of their respective county. You knew they were a tough hombre and would rain down Hell upon you if you tried to jack them around. As a result, you steered clear and watched your Ps and Qs. Their power flowed from their office. If things got serious, they had firepower in the trunk of their car or behind the pickup seat. Nowadays it seems that many sheriffs and chiefs have to wear the latest Glock 24-7 and everybody considers themselves a 2nd Amendment loving pistolero, able to shoot the eye out of a gnat at 50 paces. Civilian and law enforcement alike. I sometimes wonder if they bathe with their pistol.

Muslim ban????? So, it prevents muslims from England, from Italy, from Canada, from all the other countries not mentioned in the ban from coming to the US? Don't think so. That would be a muslim ban. The preventive question would be: "What country are you from?" And if the answer is Syria or anyone of the 7 countries identified in the ban, then you can't come in, whether muslim, Christian, Buddhist or whatever!!! Get it right BG!!!!

I was under the impression that a county commissioner represented EVRY citizen in their precinct. So tell us, is it Lamance or is it White who thinks these people are not deserving of the same quality of representation as the owner of NRS? And 11:36 & 12:51, I agree.

the worst thing about trying to shop at davids/nrs, or whatever it is called now, is the sales staff. they are far to busy looking at their phones, visiting with other workers or flat out ignoring you to assist you in any manner. I guess that says as much about the supervision as it says about sales staff. oh well, FW is only a 45 minute drive away

I think the Glock 24-7 is a 120 caliber handgun. Only has one bullet. A REALLY big bullet. If you shoot it, it takes from 24 hours to 7 days to recover enough to re-load and shoot again.

If what others have said is true, makes me wonder if the developer of Oliver Creek is just trying to pass the buck and make the citizens of Wise County pay for what he should be taking care of. Counties and cities take over maintenance of roads in subdivisions all of the time, but they all require that the roads be in good condition when they taken them over, not needing a lot of repair work immediately.

Okay Barry, just read a great book by Brian Alexander called Glass House. True story of how a quintessential American company was taken down by pure American greed. Not the Chinese, not illegal aliens, not folks in Mumbai, but a red-blooded American named Carl Icahn. He moved in, leveraged a takeover, hung huge amounts of debt on the company, cashed out, moved on and the jobs went with him for an institution called Anchor-Hocking Glass. A tragedy, but a great book that really lays it out chapter and verse. Icahn is the same guy Trump was considering for Secretary of the Treasury. The same guy who used his formula to strip assets and dump debt on formerly great U.S. companies like TWA, Motorola, U. S. Steel, and American Railcar. Their jobs also went away with his corporate raiding. And the funny, but sad, thing that comes out of the book is the folks who lost those thousands of jobs in Lancaster, Ohio, blamed mysterious "foreigners & aliens" for the meltdown. Their solution - vote Trump to bring the jobs back. The same Trump who thinks Icahn is a financial genius. Anchor-Hocking is still alive after being sold around Wall Street several times following Icahn, but it is a shadow of what it once was. And Trump and his rich friends still game the system to get richer still, killing jobs. And we still blame the bogeyman instead of the real evil doers.

Thank goodness some people really understand how American Business should work. Thank you, Warren Buffett. Glad he owns the Dairy Queen Brand.
