The Campaign For DA

5.08.2017

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • The family of the girl murdered by the stalker at North Lake College wants the entire school  renamed to "Janeera Gonzalez College" in memory of her.  That's a bit much. 
  • Good to see that Trump endorsed and pseudo-Nazi Marine Le Pen get crushed in the France presidential election. 
  • Saw an ad in the Messenger this week asking "Want to make six figures?" It was for a "Flag [auto] technician." What is that? 
  • Trump this weekend: 

  • I'm not sure what possessed me to mention  Baylor receiver K.D. Cannon last week who went undrafted and was signed as a free agent by the 49ers.  This weekend, he was cut after a mini-camp. That's unheard of. 
  • We almost had a sub two hour marathon this weekend. A guy missed it by 26 seconds.
  • I fell asleep in a hammock this weekend. Then I fell out of it. That'll wake you up. 
  • According to Monster.com, Granbury is at full employment: 
  • "Jury awards woman a record-setting $110.5M in lawsuit alleging using Johnson & Johnson's baby powder caused cancer." Puuuuleeeze.
  • Mrs. LL this weekend, "Stop planting stuff!"  Me: "I'm a landscaping genius." Her: "No you're not."
  • Angry Pete Delkus from last year: 
  • Alvord ISD's bond proposal was rejected by a 404-116 margin. That is one big defeat.
  • There was a bit of a controversy about local EMS purchasing ATV's (now on hold, by the way), but someone asked me about his belief that Runaway Bay PD bought a couple of wave runners for Lake Bridgeport several years ago.

Hmmm ... that's exactly what that RTG needs ... another 1,200 calories from Starbucks

Why would any community want to pass a bond with an athletic department like Alvord? We don't need new gyms and damn sure don't need turf.

The French are going to be po'ed in a short time when they will have to stop producing wine/ drinking the stuff due to pc pressure - course you have to have your body intact to enjoy the stuff anyway.
Some point back some time ago the frogs went from being a hardy, resilient people to sniveling, titty sucking quislings. Shame their whole of life is about to change.

A bit of controversy?

Its absolutely ridiculous is what it is. The idea that the taxpayers should provide funding for equipment for "OFF DUTY" personnel to use to make a buck on their part time gig is simply absurd. No wonder our taxes just keep getting higher. The county commissioners should refuse the request and the guy that proposed the expenditure should be charged with a "dumb-arse" fine of not less than $500!

On the other hand, maybe on the 4th of July when my kids get to set off their $25 worth of fireworks maybe we can just hire a part time fireman from Decatur and he can bring out 2 or 3 engines with him. Just to be on the safe side.

Shame on the guy who ask for these ATVs and shame on the county commissioners for even seriously considering the request.

We need smaller government!!!!!!!!!

DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulation to the French! They rejected hate, bigotry, Russian influence. Wish we had been as smart.

Congrats to Rex Hoskins on his school board win.

At least the voters of DISD still have a memory and can recognize an agenda when it is being soft peddled by a guy with phd behind his name.

I don't think a college should carry the name of a girl who let a man stalk her for years without filing a report on him.

Judge Green is definitely freaky-deaky. That's a decent picture of her. Newer pictures show that she's been living hard for a while now.

I think the science on talc is troubling. But, awards like that are based on what a corporation knew, and punitives are related to corporate income. If they knew there was a link, but made millions anyway (this is the case in asbestos products), do t you think they should be punished?

Do you think a couple million bucks is a deterrent to someone like BP for its errors, or Exxon for the Valdez?

Full employment in Granbiry because there aren't any available jobs? I don't think you understand what the term means. That's like saying we had full employment during the Great Depression because there weren't any jobs available in the US.

Law enforcement having non-typical vehicles based on necessity and potential for need should not even be a "bit" of controversy. People forget that law enforcement can spend a whole lot of time on stuff like search and rescue, natural disasters, etc. that might require something besides a cruiser or bike. Geez.

If you think that Ems using equipment for part time gigs is crazy and they should be ashamed. Then you need to take a look at your Sheriff or even Police Chief. They use County and city cars and equipment to work private jobs as well and way more frequent than any Ems personnel. They use it to get paid as resident deputies in other cities. They use them to work at the hospital and other jobs. So tax payers money is being used for secondary jobs in more than just Ems.

Monster.com is in no way, shape or form reporting there are no jobs in Granbury. It should be obvious to anyone, especially an attorney, looking at the Monster website that what IS being reported is that there are no jobs posted ON MONSTER in Granbury.

The new French President and his wife gives us all hope. She is 64 and he is 39. When he was a 15 year old student, she was the drama teacher that directed his play. She was 39 at the time. As a student, he told her he would be back to marry her some day. He was true to his word. Love will out, as Shakespeare once said.

So, by your faulty Monster logic, if the Four Seasons website indicates "no rooms available" at its Dallas location, does that mean there are no hotel rooms available AT ALL in the Dallas area? Yes, it does. No rooms anywhere.

You should be ASHAMED of yourself! That bond was promoted By John Schedcik, Candice Mercer, Randy Hamilton and their handpicked committee. The voters of AISD have been voting the way those three told them to vote for the last four years. Those schools, the athletic department and the bond is what the voters asked for by voting out experienced and educated board members like Ward, Wood, Looney and Nivens in favor of the mental midgets currently on the board. The only thing I regret is that the bond didn't pass. It is EXACTLY what the voters in the AISD have been asking for and deserved!!!

The family of the murdered student is heartbroken and struggling. Comments against the college come from that. They're in tremendous pain. I don't think later they will really believe that the college is at fault for not providing a dedicated security officer for each student on campus on the chance someone was thinking to do something terrible to one of them, etc. That makes about as much sense as blaming the city for building the streets that the killer used to drive to the campus. The media is far too insensitive and disconnected with these feeling to be able to discern in away way what should or should not be conveyed. Sad all around.

8:55, you DAMN SURE don't need turf? But, you HAVE a TURF football field!!! Please explain the opposing points of view in your comment. Makes NO DAMN sense, to take a page from your book. Unless I am mistaken, and your football stadium truly is nothing but dirt or sand. If so, I apologize, and would suggest that you actually do need turf, either natural or artificial, but something better than all dirt.

Tech in flag pay shop gets paid rate of averaged hours a repair takes- if a repair averages 2 hours and he does it in 1 then good for him. If it takes 4 hours then bad for him.
It may have originated with service writer 'flagging' repair for X number of hours when contract written.

Lots and lots of players get cut after a mini-camp. "Unheard of" it's not.

One of the three in the first group you mentioned is just completing their first year.

Hamilton came to the committee meetings and pushed for the athletic improvements, and then vocally opposed the bond after it was called.

Two of the four in the second group you mentioned didn't seek reelection.

You're just full of facts, aren't you?

Anonymous said...

Fact - 3 of the 4 did seek reelection and were made targets by the Dunn mob and others on the witch hunt. So 7:57 - check YOUR facts before correcting others. Just saying.
