The Campaign For DA

3.08.2017

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts




  • Breaking: Bridgeport ISD Superintendent seems to be leaving
  • Mrs. LL is better. Me? I not so sure. I tried to cut her a deal to use her medicine last night but was denied. (And now I just learned that someone in my office building is going home sick.)
  • I've mentioned before that one of my guilty pleasures is the movie Executive Decision. It's even greater now because one of Trump's many ex-wives, Marla Maples, is in it, and at one point the Secretary of Defense, who is facing the decision to shoot down a U.S. commercial jet, say, "Get me the President on the line. It's and executive decision now."
  • I know most of you aren't inclined to watch a Sean Spicer news conference, but I beg you do so. No one takes a bigger beating than him. Yesterday, a really smart reporter asked in connection with Trump's ridiculous claim that Obama had bugged Trump Tower, why he wouldn't release the information of the basis of his claim if he is also calling for a Congressional investigation. Basically: Why have Congress figure it out if Trump already knows?
  • I saw the highlights of Dirk hitting the 30,000 point mark last night, and I saw how Cuban tried to make it all about him. (And he didn't draft Dirk.)
  • Trump really, really lied this morning: 
  • Special note to the guy who called me an appellate "novice" yesterday. My last three PDRs have been granted. How 'bout dat? (But you were right about there is still a need to file ten hard paper copies in the Court of Criminal Appeals in addition to e-filing. I find that amazing.)
  • I actually got sucked into The Bachorler the other night when everyone in the house was asking, "What do you think about her?" I told them she was trouble, and he needs to keep away from her. He then gave her a rose, and I threw my hands up. (Then I went to bed in shame for watching that dumb show.)
  • The Panhandle was on fire yesterday:
  • I watched Fox 4 News again last night. Steve Eagar flubbed two lines in the first four minutes.
  • That missing guy by Grapevine Lake is a bizarre story. His boat was found on shore and his two year old was found wandering. But he is still missing.

Please don't start making assumptions on the missing dad.

In consideration of the many successful women who work for and have worked for President Trump in the past, all of which are successful because of the opportunities that he provided, we will call you the liar today. Love ya,

BISD Supt. story:
reporter's name is Charisma Thrash.
Hey, '80s rock radio called...they want their female on-air personality's name back!

"one of Trump's many ex-wives, Marla Maples"
Many? I count two. Hyperbole much?

Just referring to women as "the many roles they serve" is biased and sexist.

Steve Eagar is a douchebag! A gentleman criticized him two nights ago and Steve lashed back calling him ignorant. Then Steve disabled the comments on that particular post. He's a coward!

DIRK himself made a big deal about Cuban's support and dedication to his career...so maybe you should let Dirk know that he is wrong for feeling that way about Cuban. You seem to be the man in the know on this issue, more so than the one who has scored 30,000+ points for only one team in his entire NBA career.

Need more info to confirm my theory, but I think Dad fell overboard and drowned. The boat beached itself, the boy got out and wandered off.

"Why have Congress figure it out if Trump already knows?" - C'mon, counselor, can't you think of any reasons? Any at all? Think. Why would the president, a politician, want a public and much-publicized investigation by an impartial committee (as perceived by the public) into the wrongdoing of a political enemy who's been undermining that president?

Given how everything Trump says is immediately savaged by the media - another political enemy - wouldn't the conclusion being reached and announced by a third party be much more satisfying? (And politically effective.)

There is only one thing Donald admires about a woman. Hint, it's not her mind.

From the article about the missing boater:

"The Secret Service assisted with accessing data on Matthew Meinert’s cellphone that might identify the boat’s route, Shields said."

The Secret Service? How often do they assist with such cases?

Only between one and two percent of the panhandle was dealing with grass fires, but that's still a pretty big area; equal to about half of Wise County.

Even though you won't post my last comment, seriously, the Eagar obsession is a little creepy. You hate the guy yet watch his broadcast? A little Trumpish don't you think?

Hey, I said "bumpkin" and I meant it in the most affectionate way.
Having said that, the driving-on-the-shoulder case was masterful. Good show.

Remember when repubs were worried about the deficit? Now they're pushing a replacement bill through without CBO determining cost

I echo 9:43's sentiments: Secret Service? Any idea how Secret Service has jurisdiction in the case at all?

So investment bankers get 190,000 tax break when Obamacare is replaced and some 20 mill get no insurance and another 6 mill get kicked off Medicaid.......oh wait they are republicans after all

I love all of you guys commenting here about Trump and how he is only interested in women for sex! Of course, you are not like Trump at all!

What a bunch of hypocrites. Truth be told, if the process for procreation was not enjoyable, there wouldn't be 5 straight men on the planet that would interact with women other than to give them the cleaning schedule and dinner menu each week!

I read Skippy's blog again this morning. He flubbed two lines in the first four posts.

It's hilarious that the only thing Republicans could come up with to replace Obamacare is something that they still hate. It's because any health care bill they can come up with still involves making sure people have healthcare, and Republicans hate having to pretend that they care about people.

And Dems have to pretend it is not about power, money, and controlling people.

I'm with Triple Fake on this one. Two exes is an acceptable number.

Also, you hit a little close to home on that one.

I really enjoy watching the Spicer news briefings. I have never seen a live action pinata before. Just waiting for him to burst from the verbal thrashing.

BG, I disagree with you 90 percent of the time, but I agree with you about Cuban.

Adios Mr. Bland,

No hard feelings and good luck at Snyder. But please, PLEASE take Gina with you. (We assume you will have to since her head is permanently up your backside.)

For the record, the Mavericks had a pre-draft deal with Milwaukee to trade for Dirk who was taken at #11.

The Mavs took Robert Tractor Trailer at #6 for Milwaukee because he wouldn't be there at #11 for the Bucks to take and the Bucks wanted him....the Mavs agreed knowing Dirk would be there at #11. As soon as the Mavs took Trailer at #11, the deal was announced publicly.

Robert Tractor Trailer is dead. Dirk is a hall of famer.

Mavs made an amazing deal
