The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • We might need some news coverage of what is going on in Venezuela:
  • It was a dog and pony show yesterday in the House for Repeal and Replace, and I've never seen the Republicans go off so half-cocked on a bill. The Senate might just scrap the whole thing and start from scratch. And they are in no hurry. 
    Not an Old White Man Convention
  • Decatur's water this morning is a light shade of brown. 
  • As pointed out by several commentors yesterday, UT's Police Department has no proof that the Stabber was stopped by a concealed handgun license holder. Now that was truly fake news.
  • One or more persons who serve on the Wise County Crime Stoppers committee invited me in the comments to come to their meetings. I don't want to. But you obviously have all the information about the fund. so tell us all: (1) How much money is in the account, (2) How much has it paid out over, say, the last five years, and (3) What is the audit process.
  • The Dallas Morning News predicted Baylor will go 8-4 this fall. I suspect 6-6 is more likely. And I'll take it.  
  • Trophy Club apartments yesterday off of 114: 
  • ISIS is suggesting those sympathetic to their cause in America to use gun shows for easy access to weapons.  They've got that right. 
  • "In November 2016, a clip from an episode of the 1950s western television series Trackdown was published to YouTube, along with the claim that it 'predicted Donald Trump' by featuring a snake oil salesman character named 'Trump' who claimed that only he could prevent the end of the world … by building a wall around the town." It really is funny. They refer to him as Mr. Trump and at one point Trump threatens to sue. 
  • "And Another" from Indiana
  • Every time I hear about Mayfest I think about the 1995 hail storm which almost killed people. 
  • Flashback in honor of Cinco De Mayo:
    He really said, "I love Hispanics!" while eating a Taco Bowl.
  • Background anyone?:
  • The Balch Springs cop who killed the black teenager was once suspended two days for his interaction with prosecutors and his courtroom testimony in a DWI case where he said on the stand, "I don't understand the f---ing question." Let me tell you, we have a full blown psycho with a God Complex on our hands.

Gee you don't suppose the UT police department could be coerced or instructed not to confirm the CHL person helping for political reasons do you?

Let there be no doubt that crime stoppers is a scam.
Wake up people and open your eyes.

I was at the Brooks and Dunn concert at the Starplex that night in 1995 when the storms hit. The sky's were green, and the flooding took no time. It was crazy. I recall seeing the news the following morning of all the cars piled up against the fences from the flooding that were left in the Starplex parking lot.

Crime stoppers has not stopped crime. It creates a low pay welfare type snitch network that pays low life rats the means to buy more illegal drugs by dropping a dime on some nickel bag bozo

Trackdown, S1E07, air date 11/15/1957, "Alpine, Texas" - "Hoby rides into Alpine, Texas looking for a friend. He finds instead a hatred for the Texas Rangers-- and the entire town sides against him to drive him out." - OMG, that TV show predicted the targeting and hatred of police the Obama administration encouraged!

Trackdown, S02E24, air date 3/4/1959, "The Threat" - "A smiling stranger wearing a 3-piece suit and bowler hat barges into the bank manager's office carrying a package under his arm and threatens to blow the town of Porter off the face of the Earth in one hour unless he is given $10,000." - OMG, that TV show predicted suicide bombers and terroristic threats of annihilation! Just like North Korea and ISIS!

Trackdown, S02E17, air date 12/26/1958, "Every Man a Witness" - "Sheriff Alvin Freemont and a mob take prisoner Char Lopez out of jail and threaten to lynch him unless he confesses." OMG, that TV show predicted mob violence encouraged by politicians! Just like Antifa and Democrats!

Quite a show, that Trackdown.

Crime stopppers is a cop tool. They should have used it to weed out bad cops like that Chief Davis in Rhome. They don't use it on their own

The House passed GOPcare without a CBO score, without public hearings, and with releasing the text the bill only 16 hrs before the vote.

I suspect 6-6 is more likely. And I'll take it.

And with two of the wins that even you are giving them being Liberty University (!!) and UTSA, and a win against Tom Herman's UT in serious doubt, even if they do get your six (I'm not sure they will), you might even say that they'll be (wait for it)... as bad as they've ever been.

Brooks and Dunn have deterred more crime than crime stoppers. Maybe they should clean up the nasty county and regroup as grime stoppers and focus on graffiti removal

Things in Venezuela are horrible due to leftist politics (thanks Obama). Might want to keep an eye on upcoming white genocide in South Africa. Blacks have completely screwed a once great place. Didn't they do they same thing in Detroit?

Every time I hear about Mayfest I think about the 1995 hail storm which almost killed people.

Someone was killed in Lake Worth off of Jacksboro Hwy at the Albertson's parking lot. A fairly young guy, 19 or so, ran out to his car and a wind driven, softball sized hail stone struck and killed him.

Per your background request: The USAFA Football team was probably at the WH to mark their win of the Commander in Chief's Trophy. USMA, USNA, & USAFA all play against each other, if one team beats the other two, they win the trophy for the year. If they each go 1 and 1, the trophy stays put.

There were 13 people killed in the May 5, 1995 storm. Very few from the hail itself, but there were certainly fatalities.

No gun dealer is going to sell a firearm to some angsty, early 20-something white male. They definitely won't sell one to a brown person, even if they pass the background check. If you're referring to "the gun show loophole" that anti's constantly parrot, those fudds definitely won't sell to a brown person, but could be persuaded by the angsty 20-something, so long as they say something racist within the first 5 minutes of meeting.

It's not a trial, and there's no burden of proof. The UTPD "not verified" statement just lets everyone stand firmly by their own biases. I don't know if it happened or not, but the unverified rumors sure are persistent. And I'll say that if it did happen, whoever it was has done himself a favor by taking off and keeping his mouth shut about it.

Will never forget the Mayfest Hail Storm. The hail was larger than softballs at my location. Roof, trees, shrubs, car, and pickup - all beat to pieces. Insurance agent wouldn't speak to me for a year after we settled the payout.

The And Another must be a real freak behind closed doors. The ones who dress like that and with little makeup always are.

Not that I know anything about Baylor, but one of those hail storms went up 35 and took out every car, window, and grackle on campus. For ten years, every time it started raining everyone would run to their car and head for the nearest shelter--or stop on 35 under the underpasses.

Has there ever been "another" in Decatur Schools?

You said you were invited to a Crime Stoppers meeting to learn all about it...I don't believe they owe you any more response...if you are interested just go to their meeting.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Air Force football team will visit to the White House this week to be honored as winners of the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.
'Jared' is Jared Sturdivant, a graduating senior at the academy. His folks are Steve & Jaime Sturdivant from Bridgeport.

"Brown people" as in the Jesus of Nazareth looking ones, not the Jesús looking ones. I should've clarified.
