The Campaign For DA

4.21.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • In Art Briles last year, he earned $6,234,905 (only the head coach at the public institutions of Michigan, Ohio State and Alabama made more.)
  • This is quite the tribute. Cones? Sheesh. You can't find something other than what just happened to be in the back of a truck in the parking lot?: 
  • Payouts tied to harassment allegations at Fox News total $85 million of which $65 million of that has gone to the men who were ousted. That's right. The women gets $20 million and their harassers get the rest.
  • Trump had the Italian Prime Minister in the White House yesterday and mentioned Pavarotti in front of the press calling the famous tenor "a good friend of mine". Pavarotti died 10 years ago. 
  • Ridiculous standard? You released a "Contract With The American Voter" during the campaign which included a "100 Day Action Plan."
  • And he "accomplished" South Carolina?
  • Tiger Woods had back surgery in Dallas. He's done. I could have sworn that Jack Nicklaus said way back when Tiger first hit the tour in the late 1990s that there was no way his back would hold up with that violent swing, but I can't find the quote. 
  • Now we've learned our Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn't very bright. Yesterday he said,  "I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power."  That "island" would be the State of Hawaii and that judge would be an appointed federal judge pursuant to Article III of the Constitution. 
  • I would have hoped his "military training" would have taught him not to drive in front of a train. 
  • "WISE COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – Thousands of people living around Lake Bridgeport in Wise County will start paying 66 percent more for water next month. The West Wise Utility District says the higher bills are the only solution to a water quality issue that has plagued the area more than two years." Ouch.
  • Alabama is one step away from allowing a mega-church to have its own police force. Think about that. A church with police who have all the power of the government including detain, arrest, and search when lawful.  Talk about blurring the line between church and state. That law will never survive
  • A three judge federal court found that Texas Republican in Austin gerrymandered a couple of districts to suppress minority voting. That's the third time there's been such a ruling in recent weeks. 
  • I'm beginning to think John Wiley Price won't be acquitted. We may have a hung jury or a conviction on only tax evasion.

The Alabama thing is interesting in that they have a seminary which could be considered a college and we let college campuses have their own police forces--even colleges that are associated with or run by religions.

Trump is a forward thinking leader which is why past statements dont concern him.

You think maybe SC could also mean Supreme Court, counselor?

Trump's remark that Pavarotti IS "a good friend of mine" is certainly more great comedic fodder, but he's already established that he has trouble articulating the past/present tense. He knew the guy, okay?

"I would have hoped his "military training" would have taught him not to drive in front of a train."
Did you miss the part of the tweet that said "No cross gate & in the dark."?
There is no military instruction on railroad crossings. Dodging bullets, yes. Trains...not so much

"This is quite the tribute. Cones?"
A little simplistic, yes. But cones usually mark off the area of a work zone, which is where the deaths occurred.

Nothing wrong with stating that a dead person was a friend. Your pettiness is the reason he will get elected again.
Your problem is that you think you are the smartest guy in the room, but you are not smart enough to know you are not the smartest guy in the room.

Trump's comment IS appropriate for both present and past friends. Stupid media being WAY too trigger-happy looking for that "magic" sound byte. That's all we all do nowadays--looking for THE sound byte that will destroy someone. Modern political campaigns are almost entirely this nowadays--to a sickening level. Insults our intelligence to hear people straining at a gnat to try to make a big "point".

Check the map. - 9:12

Yes, Hawaii is an island in the Pacific. The judge that made the ruling was in Honolulu which happens to be on Oahu, also an island in the Pacific. So is Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Niihau, Kahoolawe and over 130 other islands. They make up the State of Hawaii which is still a part of the United States. It wouldn't be any different if the judge was in New York, Atlanta, Dallas or anywhere else in the United States.

Check a book.

Who the hell does Hawaii think they are to tell us what we can and can't do? I think we should drop a couple of MOABs and show them who's boss.

If more people would understand and respect those cones, the ceremony maybe doesn't happen in the first place. We'll let the families of the dead workers know that the blog feels that cones aren't a worthy symbol.

This blog is a lot more fun when it is not so Trumpish ( pro or con ).

Universities run by churches do the same thing. With some limitations, surely, but so would this church have limitations.

Did Sessions also claim that Hawaii was one of the 57 states?

Yes...like the "experienced hikers" who stand too close to the edge of a cliff and fall; or get caught above tree line in a lightning storm. Or "experienced anyone" who clearly is not, considering the outcome.

Every time BG references someone (always a Republican) being "not very bright" I sort of laugh hysterically for about 10 minutes.

Brainchild is all one word. As are several other words.

I see where Obama is talking to one of the candidates (Macron) in the French presidential race. Would this be something like interfering in elections in other countries?

It was no accident, the donky boys could have ran out any other candidate and won.

Please tell me just what Sessions said that was incorrect....

Last time I looked at a map, Hawaii is an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The State of Hawaii is made up of several different islands.

He never said that Hawaii wasn't a state in the US.

There are some things that this administration has said that are incorrect, but the left is just grasping at straws with this "controversy."

Bar, How is it that the superintendent of DISD is already working for Parsons roofing who incidentally is 1 of the districts main vendors, is that even legal? While he is still employed by school district...

From the guy who likes calling other people dumb, here's one of yesterday's bullet points:

"If weed had run against Trump, it would have of won. In every state that voted to legalize it in November, the "for" votes garnered more votes than Trump.

would have OF won?

"for" votes garnered more votes? Maybe he meant the "for" proposition garnered more votes?

There's liberal intelligence for you.

Your numbers are off about the O'Reilly/Aires settlements. These are just the ones I could cite off the top of my head.

1. Andrea Mackris 2004 = $9 million

2. Juliet Huddy 2016 = $1.6 million

3. Laurie Dhue 2016 = $1 million

4. Rebecca Gomez Diamond 2011 = O'Reilly personally settled and paid her an undisclosed amount.

5. Gretchen Carlson 2016 = $20 million

6. Andrea Tanteros = Has declined 7 figure settlement and going for high 8 figure court settlement.

7. Wendy Walsh = going for high 7 figure settlement.

O'Reilly has a long and well-documented history of being an out of control predatory narcissist, to such an extent that O'Reilly was stripped of custody of his children.

O'Reilly should have been unemployable after his filmed NSFW "F**K it! We'll do it live." meltdown.

The thing I find just as disgusting as what O'Reilly did, throughout the decades, is that there are people who actually blame the women and/or defend O'Reilly.

I just changed my burial instructions. No concrete angel for me. Put orange traffic cones on my grave. My survivors could up some at any road construction site. Cheap & easy.

"Ailes" as in Roger Ailes. Sorry for the typo...bloody auto correct.

Whenever I see a cross on the side of the road, I always wonder why the DOT would let someone bury their dead on the side of the road and not in a cemetery.

"Payouts tied to harassment allegations at Fox News total $85 million of which $65 million of that has gone to the men who were ousted. That's right. The women gets $20 million and their harassers get the rest."

The part of the statement "...men who were ousted." as does "...their harassers..." clearly indicates that Roger Ailes is included in that statement. Ailes received a $40 million golden handshake and O'Reilly received $25 million. Since you seem to have difficulty with reading comprehension I'll assume you have equal difficulty with math so I'll do the addition for you, $40 million plus $25 million = $65 million. Based on the list of women who've already received settlements of a disclosed sum, cumulatively they've received a total of $31.6 million. $65 million plus $31.6 million = $96.6 million.

You prove the point that it is far better to be homeschooled than go through life as a defective product of a failed public education system, such as is your plight. Incidentally, I attended Catholic school grades 1-12 then went on to do quite well at university.

You'd do yourself a service to follow the advice of Abraham Lincoln.
"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt."

You're welcome.

I like to watch FOX News to get a look at all the women sitting facing the camera in their short tight dresses that nearly exposes their panties. Get that necked in front of me and I would probably be fired also. Hey, Mzchief, what would Darwin say about their dresses?
