The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Note to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer: Never leave! Yesterday he said Hitler did not use chemical weapons and then, when, he tried to clarify, acknowledged that gas was used in the "Holocaust Centers." 
  • The Mav's Tony Romo experiment was just as embarrassing as I thought it would be. And that's the exact word Romo used when he briefly addressed the crowd.
  • Cuban sold Tony Romo T-shirts for $25 and jerseys for $85 (kids' sizes at $70). Side note: As for NBA players, there is probably something in the collective bargaining agreement which allows teams to use a player's name on merchandise for profit. But what about using Romo's name for profit?
  • Another Texas "And Another":
  • New UT coach Tom Herman has had these signs installed above the toilets: 
  • Based upon scores yesterday, I think that in my prime I would have been an average golfer on Bridgeport or Decatur's high school girls golf team: 
  • I'm 1.5 episodes into S-Town -- the podcast presented by Serial and This American Life. So far, it is fantastic. 
  • Ken Paxton's criminal trial is being moved from Republican friendly Collin County to not Republican friendly Harris County on a change of venue. (Legal nerd note: Based upon a motion by Paxton yesterday, it looks like when there is a change of venue, the judge can only stay on the case with the consent of all parties. I'll admit I didn't know that. Then again, I've never seen a change of venue granted in Wise County since I arrived on the scene in 1993. In fact, I can't even remember hearing about one being filed.)
  • The federal judge keeps chewing out the U.S. Attorney's office in the John Wiley Price trial. I'm beginning to think there's a better than even chance they have screwed that trial up. 
  • BagOfNothing has an interesting take today after he saw a bumper sticker that said "God is Pro-Life" and then thought about the events of the Passover where God killed the firstborn of every Egyptian family.

I first saw a similar pee color chart in a girls' high school locker room a couple of years ago. At first I was shocked but then I realized it was a really good idea. Kids are dying from dehydration during workouts. Using whatever tool you can to keep them hydrated makes a lot of sense.

Read carefully: "Hitler never used chemical weapons on own people." Got it? Hanging, electric chair, or lethal injections and other devices used in killing prisoners are not called "weapons". Stop manipulating.

Ugh....more people reading the Bible literally again I see! I'm equally as frustrated by Christians who take it literally as I am by those who use literal examples of its text to discredit God or provide fodder for doubt. While I'm personally not one of faith, I think this is the most childish and intellectually low brow method of questioning faith. If you are beyond 15 yo, and this(Geeding's musings or anyone with similar thoughts) is just now hitting you as some mind blowing epiphany, you might not qualify for the death penalty in TX based on your IQ level!

Second, Hey! 9:00, "Manipulation"? Smells like the old pot vs kettle to me. And you want to describe citizens rounded up and put in concentration camps "prisoners"? Were the German-Americans we rounded up in WW1 "prisoners"? Where the Japanese-Americans we rounded up WW2 "prisoners"?

Thirdly, to reference history as much as you do on this blog, either your not aware, or not cognizant, of how great the PBS series "The Great War" airing this week is.

DHS Golf receives little to no support from DISD. Decatur went to State 4 years in a row and brought home a Bronze Medal last year.

It is a shame and an embarrassment that so little support has been provided for this program.
Not a single DISD official (outside the Coach) even attended the Team's success at Region or at State last year.

Kids notice when no one from their school is there!

Especially, when other schools have many school officials including principals and superintendents in attendance and there for support.

I am proud of our kids, we have at least 3 players from the last 4 years that have gone on to compete at the college level. Including one that is playing for a Big 12 school.

Sad!

Couple things...
1. Why is it when people use scripture to just their partisan views, when someone counters their argument with scripture, you usually will hear the excuse, "thats old testament, I am talking new testament". That distinction was never made to me in my 40-something years of attending church/Sunday School. The PARABLES and it is INTERPRETATION was meant to taken in its entirety. The Bible and the Constitution are the two most misinterpreted documents in history. And people go out of their way to keep it that way.

2. Paxton is screwed. Moving the trial out of Collin County was a huge setback for him. Here is the issue at hand, he is being tried in criminal court for fraud charges, in which he has already pleaded guilty to with the Texas State Securities Board. In typical Texas fashion, they slapped him on the wrist and sent him on his way. Then the Feds got involved, noticed that he was about to skate, and brought FEDERAL fraud charges on him - which he pleaded Not Guilty (WUT?). Since his trial was in his backyard of Collin County, the area has been inundated with Fake News. There have been massive amounts of untold/unreported dark money spent in Collin County trying to sway a potential jury pool. NETTP has gone as far as to fly in Rick Santorum for a brief tour of Collin County so that he could lobby on behalf of Ken Paxton. Those tea baggers threw a fit when the change of venue was announced. There was a slim chance that he could have received a fair trial in Collin County. There is now an even slimmer chance that a trial can be swayed in Harris County.

S-Town was phenomenal! If you are 1.5 episodes in, you are just getting to the most interesting parts. It only gets better.

Although Crimetown is out there as well, a lesser-know, but very well done piece profiling an individual in the legal system is a four part series done by the Reply All podcast. "On the Inside Parts 1 - 4" are episodes 64 - 67. Here is a link to the first. If you listen, let us know whatcha think.

I will be in the UT bathrooms to ensure that the proper levels of hydration are met. It's my job now, after all.

DF Dan Partick, bathroom monitor

I like BagofNothing, but its not an original thought. The hypocrisy of organized religion (this is different from true faith) never fails.

Not only did God permit the deaths of the first born, he intentionally hardened Pharoah's heart so that he would not relent, meaning that God made double sure that every first born in Egypt would die.

And let's not forget the time God let Job's family get killed by Satan on a bet. Basically a celestial craps game, with God rolling the dice to see if Job would be tempted.

And he kind of let that one guy die--you remember Him, right? Jesus? Was that in the new Testament?

9:03--can you please let us know how that covenant with Christ applies to the death penalty? Thanks. How about border walls? Immigration? Welfare? Health care?

Don't get all 'free-market' on me now. The Gospel says that if you have two coats, and you come across a man with none and do not give him yours, you are a sinner. How many coats do you have?

9:00: What? You realize that gas (a chemical) was used on Germans in the camps, right? Fun fact: The Nazis also used trucks with the exhaust hooked up into the cargo area to kill those inside. We know they loved to document everything.

"B o N clearly doesn't know that the old and new testaments are like apples and oranges. A new covenant was born with Christ. Hope to see you in Sunday school this week Barry."

I forgot to point out the irony of your misstatement here. Technically, the new covenant was born with the death of Christ--which you claim supports a pro-life argument... because of his death...

Your DISD has board members that travel all the way to San Antonio to watch a group of students dance in a flamenco competition. Maybe, you are just wining and dining the wrong person.

Bridgeport Taxpayers please read the Messenger Article and the direct quotes from your soon to be former Superintendent.... He was for soccer all along?????? What a JOKE

Then the ultimate insult to All of us, he somehow connects soccer to this..."Across this state, that is a subgroup that everyone is trying to improve scores."

Insulting sir! And by the way don't worry about these young men, they are proven Winners!

Thank goodness for good teachers and a community that loves ALL our Great kids!

Skippy, I surely thought you would have reported on the 100 thousand immigration march in Dallas this weekend that had only 3,200 participants. The DPD had 1000 officers there to patrol it. That's 1 cop for every 3 protesters. Dallas taxpayers tax dollars put to good use.

Remember when Trump claimed his team was under surveillance by the FBI under Obama's orders and no one believed him and he's been ridiculed by the media because of no proof.......well hidden in the news yesterday and no one talking about it today was a story where the FBI admitted to have had surveillance on a Trump team member by the name of Carter Page. Vindication much?

Several parallels between Bridgeport Soccer and Decatur Golf.

Both programs have to fight for anything they get because the Superintendent and the AD are afraid some kid might not play football if he is playing another sport.

There is not a coach anywhere that can teach a kid to run an appreciably faster 40 and/or jump out of the gym. It takes both of those physical attributes to play at the D1 level.

That is what makes small school "all white football" a joke. Don't get me wrong, I love football. But when you have kids that have the ability to succeed in other sports and that ability is ignored or repressed all for the sake of football, that is just wrong.

Both soccer and golf demand a very specific skill set that is rewarded by hard work and proper instruction. Decatur golf won District by wide margins over the last 4 years because they had superior instruction at a quality golf course.
This year they had neither, "thanks a lot bin laden" wait I mean Townsend.

And as far as Bridgeport soccer goes Bland fought it every step of the way for years alongside his idiot stepson Henson.

Sad is right for Decatur. Good for Bridgeport.

I don't even know what that means. Not sure anyone knows what it means but it gets the people going!

Eddie Bland was not against soccer from the beginning. It just wasn't as simple as saying we want soccer and bam you got it. You have to have a field marked correctly, coaches, uniforms, etc. He simply said we cant mention it at a meeting one week and have it in place the next. There is a process. I'm glad Bridgeport got soccer but come on give the guy a break. There aren't that many schools the size of Bridgeport that have soccer. They aren't that far behind. And blaming the school officials and board because your golf team sucks? Please!! If you don't have the athletes and they dont work hard at golf year round it aint gonna happen. Get your kids to the driving range and quit blaming!!

Following the line of "thinking" employed by the Always Aggrieved faction of the Liberal Loons, the United States used "chemical weapons" on its people from 1924-2010. Even though the last person to be gassed in the US was a German national, I will refrain from making a Hitler reference.

Spicer's ONLY screw up in his statement was his comparison of Syria to Hitler. Unless someone has a closet full of at least 7 million gassed and/or tortured dead Jews, NO ONE is worse than "Hitler."

Say what you will about Trump and his staff, having Crazy Donald sitting in the big chair in the White House is still vastly better than having Evil Hillary.

Disclaimer: I still detest Trump and the vast majority of his clown posse.

9am If the new testament is the only one to be used/believed, you can cease the condemnation of homosexuality as there is no reference there. But I'm certain many "true believers" will continue to pick and choose to suit their purposes. Hypocritical and sad.
