The Campaign For DA

4.20.2017

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Trump fired every U.S. Attorney a few weeks back. He has not named a single replacement. There are 93 positions sitting empty. (It might have helped the John Wiley Price prosecutors if they had a boss.) Edit: Correction. He fired 46 U.S. Attorneys who were "Obama-era holdovers." They have not been replaced.
  • A police officer in Austin in charge of running the Intoxilyzer machine did a routine "self test" which showed 0.064 and 0.065 (the machine requires two samples.) Yep, he had been drinking. He immediately reported it to his superior. Was that a noble act? Nope: (1). The DPS technical supervisor for the machine downloads the data once a month and she would have seen it. (2) The testing data for the machine is discoverable by defense lawyers who are defending DWI cases and they would have seen it. Without knowing the facts, their position would have been: A sober officer blew a 0.065? The machine is screwed up. Then the officer would either have to come clean or jeopardize thousands of cases. 
  • I'm clairvoyant. Yesterday I posted a picture of Aaron Hernandez with Tim Tebow where Tebow had "John 3:16" under his eyes. There are reports Hernandez drew "John 3:16" on his forehead before dying. 
  • I also correctly predicted the demise of Bill O'Reilly who got fired yesterday. (What a miserable human being.) And who will take his time slot? The guy I've been dogging for the last two days: 
  • O'Reilly used to work at Channel 8 in Dallas:
  • Speaking of Channel 8, they covered Decatur ISD's consideration of random drug testing. 
  • 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. 
  • Oh, my! Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock in the White House! (No word on whether or not squirrel was served.)
  • I've not been to a high school track meet in forever although I love track. Yesterday, Decatur held the "Area Meet" which comes after the District Meet but before the Regional Meet for those who qualify. I always thought you went from district to regional. How long has this been going on? Let me guess, twenty years. 
  • Unrelated: I bet I haven't seen someone write a check at a store in twenty years.

Somebody needs to tell Ted and Kid to take their damn hats off indoors.

I think I vaguely remember "area track meets" back in the day.

So band kids, the chess club, the debate team and all extracurricular students are suspected of being on drugs and will be drug tested, meanwhile those that are disconnected and reclusive or simply don't participate in any such activities are declared the drug free kids? Wow.

How can Decatur be so far behind in drug testing? We took drug test in the mid to late 90's in Bridgeport to participate.

Palin's visit seems appropriate judging the group of Kid Rock and Ted Nugent she was included in. More appropriate than visiting with a delegation of governmental leaders. She is more reality TV actor than anything else these days. And how about the off-the-shoulder blouse for the White House? Gawd lady, dress up at least a little.

Hey, "mary jane" doesn't have a franchise on the Weed name. Stop painting us all by applying that name to the wacky tobacky folks. We are proud of our invading species heritage.

Carlson is the luckiest guy in cable news. He replaced departing Fox hosts all the way into the plum spot.

Judge Pirro would be perfect for O'Reillys spot. She is the only one there that a lot of hard core conservatives will tune in for.

John Parker is the US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. He was before Trump and he still is today. He has not been dismissed. Stop spreading fake news. He is an experienced prosecutor although more civil than criminal.

Funny? You never wondered if watermelon and chitlins were served when Sharpton and Jackson visited the Obama White House.

Apparently O'Reilly was extremely unliked when he worked at WFAA. He actually got into a heated argument with Tracy Rowlett, who called him a "poor reporter even on his best day."

Also he was caught in lies recently when he stated that he was outside the house in Florida in the late 70s when a man tied to the JFK assassination committed suicide. Rowlett and others stated that there was no way that he would have been out there. He would have been working in Dallas.

Funny how disturbed you are about Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin, and Kid Rock visiting the White House. Have you SEEN the guest list at the White House the last 8 years? Holy Crap !!! You're obviously not too keen at picking your battles. Hang in there, cupcake.

Add a can of Lone Star to it and the pic of Kid Rock, Sarah Palin, and Ted Nugent is a white trash Mt. Rushmore.

berry your comment on Kid, Palin, Nugent and squirrel places you in the same category as all your racist bigoted uneducated followers.
I am embarrassed for you

OBJECTION: The JWP prosecutors have had the same boss (US Attorney John Parker)since before Trump. Mr. Parker of the Northern District of Texas was NOT dismissed, has not been dismissed. Your Honor, Mr. Green's JWP comment is misleading. Please instruct the jury to ignore it.

Have you ever noticed in all the pics of the North Korean solders, at how many metals they have on their chests. Every one of them have metals...

Tin? Silver? Gold? Aluminum? Copper?

Or is it possible that all their medals are made of the same material?

"Weed is fine". "Weed should be legal". Until you ask that person if they'd buy it for their kids, or want their surgeon to be a pothead, or their mechanic, or any of the hundreds of drivers coming from the opposite direction just one lane over, and so forth.

@1:26
Stupid analogy.

I also don't want my surgeon or mechanic to be an alcoholic and so forth, but many are.
You presume that my surgeon would come to the OR stoned, which is simply stupid. And if he did, I would rather he be stoned than hungover.

And so forth

Happy 420 today. We have a large cannabis convention in Fort Worth this sat and Sunday. It is at the convention center. Also, May 6th, we have the dfwnorml global march in Fort Worth. Come on out and lets legalize cannabis now!! 1:26, there is so much that you are missing. Please go listen to som of the speakers at the convention.

Hey 9:18--------

That's some great comedy there, son. Eight years too late, but still great. After the Obama era of rappers, gangstas and airhead Hollywood types (not to mention Jonathan Gruber and Lois Lerner) parading through the White House, it would be a little hard for anybody to do any worse to the place.

Your hatred is irrational and counterproductive.

It was just you 12:35, but now it's me too.

Barry. How much weed is in your glove compartment right now? Just curious. Are you dealing or just holding? You working with that Mexican boat captain?

158 - If the surgeon has decided to develop a taste, for recreational purposes, for a drug that has been illegal his or her whole life, then the idea of that same surgeon trying to perform surgery stoned is not that big a leap. The lack of judgment has already been proven.

…nearly every government-promoted crime lab in America is engaged in its own “science crimes” that are designed to deliberately produce false positives in order to continue the tyrannical, idiotic “war on drugs” and keep themselves in business, collecting government money for producing totally junk science.

God, the media is just out of control. All this fuss about Russian bombers. Well...yeah...since Russia and the U.S. are only about 3 miles apart once you get to the islands in the Bering Strait...it's kind of hard for Russian planes flying over Russia, or international waters there, to NOT be also flying near the U.S. Big hoo yah over nothing.

The random drug tests should be completed on coaches and teachers too.
Is that in the plan?

"Chinese bombers placed on high alert" says the media. "Chinese mechanics performed routine maintenance on Chinese bombers" says the truth, the deliberately forgotten world formerly known as "what's really going on" that is now sacrificed willingly for the sake of clicks by the sheep. No matter how many people get scared, no matter how many lives are lost because some driver has to "share" that the Chinese are coming, no matter how many lies are told. It's all about making people click and get mad so we shoot each other, leading to more clickable stuff. This can't last much longer.

the fact that Barry said weed would have beaten Trump in the election truly emphasizes just how piss poor of a candidate that Shillary really was.
