The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts




  • Is there something going on with one of the Decatur High athletic squads? I heard something but I'm not even close to confirming it.
  • Kind of funny: The Decatur HS Golf Booster Club will have a fundraiser at the Bridgeport Country Club.
  • RG3 got cut while Vince Young attempts to make a comeback in the Canadian Football League. Both started off with a bang and then withered quickly. 
  • Friday breaking news: Trump demanding resignations of all US attorneys appointed by Obama. That's not news. That happens every time there is a change in administrations. I think the bigger news is that it took Trump's group this long to figure it out.
  • Some say Jerry Jones wouldn't trade Romo to Washington because of playing Redskins twice a year. You kidding me? That league is about making money and that would be money.
  • OU quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested after being told to stay because he was a witness. He attempted to flee. That was one violent tackle by the cops. Side note: I've been doing criminal law a long time and off the top of my head I have no idea if that is a crime if that were to occur in Texas. (And before some goofball says, "Obstruction of Justice!", there is no such crime in Texas.)
  • This "jumping forward and hour" is a beating but having it happen during Spring Break is a genius idea 
  • Let's check in on Trump this morning and his understanding of a Free Press:
  • What's the name of the tree that has those vivid purple leaves? 
  • One Texas legislator is doing a bit in order to retaliate against a male dominated legislature constantly trying to impose abortion restrictions: 
  • They found the body of the guy who went missing in the creek near Grapevine lake. (His two year old was found on land.) They say he was hit by the propeller. Best guess. He fell out. Boat started going in a circle, and he tried to get back in. 
  • A couple of weeks ago, Henryetta, OK repealed its "no dancing" ordinance. After everyone gets past the Footloose references, you should realize there is no way a government ban on dancing is constitutional. It's free speech.

Fundraiser at Bridgeport country club is not funny and seams reasonable if you have ever played at the Decatur course

If indeed that is true of Jerry Jones....he is more stupid that previously thought...and that is saying something.

You libs and your "free speech" nonsense. The founding fathers did not do whatever they did so that we could dance.

Why would it be funny? A few years back both Bridgeport and Decatur hosted a golf tournament at the Bridgeport Country Club together. It's all for the kids!

My first guess was Vivid Purple Leaf tree. And Neil Sperry is throwing the stink eye at me right about now.
Stink eye is an invasive species, native to southern Asia, but spot application of a good commercial herbicide should take care of the problem. Consult a horticulturalist at your local nursery


It may be unconstitutional to ban dancing, but what about banning an event where dancing is the focus?
What would have happened in Henryetta if somebody just busted a move right out on a city street? Would that person get the Baker Mayfield treatment?

Those Redbud trees signal the start of fish spawing season. Time to fire up the LL kayak.

Many changes have been made at Decatur Golf Club over recent time. If it has been a while since you have been out there, give it another shot.

Or it could be Lilac bushes they sometimes grow on old trees, making them look almost like a tree.

The founding fathers didn't do what they did so we could dance? What did they do it for?

When I was in Henryetta, I was known for my dancing skills. I did the robot, still do in fact.

You haven't been out to the Decatur Country Club in a while. It is in way better shape than the Bridgeport club.

There are bigger problems in Decatur than athletics . Kids sit in class while a teacher is teaching and have their ear phones in! Smoke pot on school properly because they aren't properly watched! Decatur needs change and it starts with our board!

I think Texas Tech is checking on the eligibility of those cops now to see if they can recruit them for their defense.

But man, didn't Mayfield cry like a little girl when he got caught?!?!

Or, to paraphrase a comic (was it Ron White?):

"Naw, I'm purty sure it's that fat a$$!"

You do understand a Judge found that there was probable cause for the arrest right? You will never go beyond Wise County in your career.

3:06: What kind of ass insults someone on their own blog and doesn't even have the balls to attach their name to it?

What a coward.

I wonder what such a coward has accomplished in his career that he spends the middle of a week day anoymously insulting people whose names and acreers are on display for all to see.

I had some dealings with the Decatur High School Auto Mechanics kids that built the huge truck,they had the truck at the Office Road Expo at the Speedway this weekend and helped out with some of the preparations. Those kids were some of the RUDEST MOST DISRESPECTFUL kids I have ever met, not helping when asked just sitting while others were working, talking about smoking pot and slapping their botch mother, and cursing an adult staff member when asked to move the truck to another location because they were in an area paid for by a show sponsor!!!!

Harry Hamid said...

6:53: It wasn't me you were insulting, and it was no skin off my back. They were honest impressions of a person who would stop by to anonymously insult a blogger on their own blog.
