The Campaign For DA

4.05.2017

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • With all the advertisers fleeing Bill O'Reilly's show (up to 20 so far), he may have to write a new book: Killing O'Reilly. (Admittedly, I stole that.) I don't see how he survives this. 
  • Stellar day for Team Trump yesterday. First, Trump sends out a press release blaming the horrific gassing of civilians in Syria on inaction by Obama. Flashback to 2013:
  • Note: We will never take any action against the Syrian regime because it is supported by Russia. And Trump will never cross Russia. 
  • Then his son praises the guy behind "Pizzagate" and says he needs a Pulitzer for his recent reporting. Let's check out some of the guy's past comments:
  • The guy who defeated Sheriff Joe will shut down that goofy Sheriff's "jail tent city" after 23 years. 
  • I watched Disgraced last night on the Baylor basketball scandal. Good lord. It was a heck of a lot worse than I remember.  It is a fantastic documentary. 
  • North Korea fired another missile landing near Japan. 
  • Fox 4 reported on Monday that a teenager in his home along Bonds Ranch Road had a e-cig explode in his face causing "life threatening injuries." Nope. It caused a small fire in his bedroom, he inhaled some of the fumes, went to the hospital for observation, and was released the next day. 
  • Michael Irvin has been accused on sexual assault and the "victim" has hired Gloria Allred to sue for money. Case closed. It didn't happen. 
  • A Fort Worth officer and his wife were killed over the weekend after a motorcycle wreck. They had been at a bar in downtown Fort Worth. 
  • I was trying to find the amount of money Tony Romo has made over his career which netted just two playoff wins. I couldn't find it. Edit: Through 2015 is was $118.9 million. In 2016, he was paid $8.5 million more.

There is going to be a dozen comments on the RTG girl today. So I won't.

Please keep working on that Tony Romo number. It would be very interesting.

If 400 miles is how you define "near", then yes a North Korean missile landed near Japan.

North Korea has been launching missles near Japan for decades, especially near the time of our annual joint readiness exercises with S.Korea. Why is this just now of interest to you?

And Obama ever crossed Russia?

I believe Sherrington in yesterday's DMN reported the Romo number as $128 million. It gets confusing with all of the bonuses, guaranties and restructurings.

It's amazing how good a President that Obama was since N. Korea never launched missles during his presidency!

I bet if you ask Jerry, Romo earned every penny. The Cowboys had butts in seats because Romo kept them competitive.

I will be surprised if B.O. doesn't survive the sexual harassment scandal, after all most Fox News followers don't really consider that to be all that unacceptable. You know boys will be boys. Just locker room stuff.

AHEM. Just to help 8:50 along: "My, My! Today's RTG is certainly putting up a 'Big Front'!"

What do yo have against tent cities? Accountability doesn't have to be comfortable. Why shouldn't offenders have to work for their keep?

When will the next movie "Disgraced II" come out about Art Briles and Baylor? The overwhelming conclusion that I took is that Bliss, and Baylor, knew a lot more about the murder than has ever been disclosed, and the fact that Dotson was rushed into the plea deal meant that Baylor's role in the murder and coverup was never examined. Consequently, the environment that enabled Dennehy's murder simply went underground until it led to Ramsower, McCraw, McCaw, Starr, Briles, and the rest of the university and fan base bringing predators to campus, accepting violence against women, and shaming the victims. That culture was not confronted or changed as part of the Dennehy murder, and it hasn't been confronted or changed now.

How does O'Reilly survive? Easy--wait it out. His fan base is the same one who elected a man who admitted to sexually assaulting women. The advertisers will trickle back.

Remember when anything bad happened during the Obama 8 years and it was always Bush's fault. Same song....different names.

And you are part of the Clinton fan base that supported him when he raped women in the White House!

People, people. Nobody is saying that it is Trump's 'fault' that N. Korea is testing missiles, ... any more than it was Obama's 'fault'. Any 'fault' lies with the crazy leader of N. Korea. The issue Barry is drawing attention to is: How is Trump going to handle it? Obama handled it with kid gloves, trying to walk a tightrope of condemnation on one side, and not igniting a possibly nuclear conflict on the other. Will Trump do the same? Or something else? And how will that turn out? It is a valid question and a valid concern.

How does the RTG keep from falling over

Tell us about those lofty morals please๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚!

11:30 The "fault and blame" subject is related to the Syria situation, not the N. Korea one. Little slow there.

Excellent illustration of a healthy core.

To paraphrase an old quote from the great felonious Governor Edwin Edwards, the only way Mr O'Reilly loses his job is if he is caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.

What does a university have to do (or not do) to receive a complete ban from all sports? Baylor should quit on their own. Shameful

Anonymous said...

No one cares about any victims at Baylor when these scandals are brought up......they only care about how it would help their school on the field or court.

it's the old "If Baylor could drop, our team could win more."

Was not surprised that off duty Fort Worth LEO was in the 'Gang Unit'.
He looked sketchy.
