The Campaign For DA

5.11.2017

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • "Former Parker County court-at-law Judge Debra [DuPont] Rogers' hanging death in her Aledo home has been ruled a suicide." It's hard to find any background on this story or her history.
  • I took a portion of the 8th Grade History practice STAAR test last night. I think I might be held back this Fall.
  • Prosper High School will give breathalyzer tests to all students wishing to enter the prom. Heck, why not take blood? Or a full body search? Search their cars? Check their text messages? 
  • White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had Mike Huckabee's daughter fill in for him at the  daily press conference yesterday. As she got peppered with questions regarding the firing of FBI Director Comey, she came across as America's Baghdad Bob.
  • And her dad needs to stay off Twitter.
    Uh, that would be CCN and not CNN

    Oh, no, you didn't.
  • I'm worried about the headline writers at the Dallas Morning News:
  • Character actor Michael Parks died yesterday. He was in Kill Bill 1 and 2, Death Proof , Django Unchained,  and Dusk til Dawn. See a pattern there?  I was also surprised to see he was Bronson in a long forgotten TV series from my childhood that was only on for two seasons: Then Came Bronson.
  • Trumpland Shocking News (that many faithful readers will ignore) : Just days ago, fired FBI Director Comey asked for more money and prosecutors from the Justice Department to continue the Russia investigation. Who did he specifically ask? Deputy AG Rod J. Rosenstein who just authored the memo, at Trump's direction, that Trump would then rely upon to fire Comey. And after that, Rosenstein threatened to resign once he was painted as the reason for the firing. Fake news? Even the Drudge Report is citing these stories which are everywhere.
     
  • And Trump thought it was a good idea to meet with the Russians yesterday: 

  • Ex Cowboy running back and former Baylor great Lincoln Coleman was reported to have been missing for eight days. Reports this morning are that he has been found. Weird. 
  • For all of you who think its easy to collect from the government for civil rights violations, the Sixth Circuit reminded us all again that it is not: 
  • Just a funny picture of Jason Garrett, Jerry Jones, and John Daly at Cowboys Country Club before noon yesterday: 
  • "'Big Black,' co-star of MTV show 'Rob & Big,' reportedly died in Plano" Never heard of him.

Guess Trump decided to cut out middle man and get his orders from the Russians directly

Since you won't be the one breaking up the fight, or providing comfort to a kid who was assaulted by a drunk, or attending the funerals when there's a drinking related tragedy that occurred because nobody was paying this type of attention to the safety of the kids...maybe just let those that would do all that make the decision.

I'm a Trump voter fine with him getting impeached. It was never about support for Trump just fear of Hillary. Pence will make a fine president.

In 8th grade, you can only be held back if you fail the reading and/or math sections of STAAR. Science and social studies portions don't count for retention. Just so you know.........

We watched "Then Came Bronson" because of his Harley he rode. He rarely spoke up enough to be heard, though. :-)

So long as you're white, Christian, straight, and male. Pence was Trump's insurance policy against Dems trying to impeach him, should they have taken the House and Senate. He didn't bank on the fact that if he doesn't play ball with the GOP, they'd love to have a nut job like Pence in place.

No mention of Texas HB 3859 that passed yesterday, BG? It's a surprisingly quick read, and I'm sure you've got some HSO's about it.

This whataboutism nonsense is just a cover for all the massive hypocrisy that liberals can't stand having tossed in their face. You have no answer for it so you coin a cheeky term and ignore what is so glaring...it's all Obama's fault. Trump never happens if Obama wasn't such a massive failure.

OMG. The taxpayers....(you know...those people that work?) are footing the bill to send bumbling Nancy Pelosi to China...WTF!

Nancy Pelosi...the leader of the Democratic party....funny

mzchief said...

At this point, I'm fairly certain Trump is trolling the Democrats over the Russia BS. It's the job of the POTUS to actually meet with heads and representatives of foreign nations and Trump doing it must gall Hillary's Crybabies.

Hillary didn't lose because the Russian's acquired Team Hillary e-mails. Hillary was burned by the CONTENT of the e-mails. Those e-mails were nothing more than the evidence the public needed to support why she's so disliked by working class Americans. Personally, I don't care if Trump straight up instructed the Russians/Wikileaks when it would be to his advantage to publish the e-mails that revealed EXACTLY what Team Hillary thinks about working class Americans. Blaming Russia/Wikileaks for Hillary's loss because they exposed the douchebaggery of Team Hillary is akin to blaming a private investigator for the end of a marriage because they discovered and exposed the philandering of a cheating spouse.

Get over it Democrats. Democrats are so inept they nominated someone so repugnant Hillary couldn't even beat Trump.

Going down that long lonesome highway
Bound for the mountains and the plains
Sure ain't nothing here gonna tie me
And I got some friends I'd like to see
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
But till I do I won't be hanging round
Going down that long lonesome highway
Gonna live life my way

RIP Mr. Then Came Bronson

Yes, 9:57, it is absolutely Obama's fault that Trump's campaign had known contacts with Russia, the investigation was expanding and accelerating, Russia knowingly interfered with the election and hacked our political establishment's parties, and has investment ties to Trump. 100% Obama.

I sometimes wonder how people like you can exist. Even the easiest things must be difficult for someone so stupid.

Lincoln Coleman going home after seeing himself on the news doesn't seem so strange when you read the whole story. What we do to our heroes! Eight verified concussions, alcohol and drug abuse, now dementia.
You should know how alcohol and drug addictions affect people since you represent them in court. It sounds like he has his life straightened out, except for the dementia, since how he reaches out to others who are in the midst of addiction crises.

God, grant him serenity!

@Spanish War Donkey - are you a troll or just an idiot? When did Christian, straight, and male, become the traits of a "nut job". I think you also forgot white.

If those are the disqualifying elements of a leader, then we should only vote for an Atheist, African American, lesbian?

President Maxine Waters will do a fine job!!

Ugh....the stupid "working class Americans" nonsense again. Yes, working class Americans hate Hillary but so did millions of soccer mom's and wealthy suburbanites according to exit poll data. Those folks who voted for Obama but then switched to Trump were who got him elected, not a bunch of toothless hillbillies that never voted before! That myth needs to die.

Anonymous said...

You inferred a tremendous amount there bucko, I was talking about the mood of the country, not Russian interference. Trump would have never carried the nomination of his party or had the opportunity to collude with Russia had Obama not been so loathed.

They have reading comprehension courses available at TCC for folks like you. Go take a few and get back to us when you can read at a past high school level.

Pence is literally on record as believing gay conversion therapy works. Please, explain to me, how THAT isn't a trait of a nutjob? He won't hurt me; I'm all of the above, but I also know how to differentiate between Old Testament and New Testatment Christianity, unlike most readers here.

Also, I said Pence would be a great president AS LONG AS one was white, male, straight, and Christian. I mentioned nothing of leadership. So, before you try (and fail mightily) to call me a troll or an idiot, work on your 5th grade level reading comprehension.

Michael Parks was greatness. Then Came Bronson was a favorite, but with us for too short a time.

Regarding the golfing threesome at Cowboys Country Club: Why those two would choose to invite a boozing, womanizing, ego maniac who has notoriously abused his body through the years and dresses outrageously to play golf with them is amazing. But Jason Garrett and John Daly are better men than I.

So your take away from my comment was to opine on your pride in white heritage and masculinity? Alright little buddy, whatever makes you feel good. You clearly have no actual retort to my comment, so go on back in the single-wide and give your sister some love.

@spanishwardonkey - my reading comprehension is just fine, thanks. SO LONG AS, means that you regard those traits as negative.

But that is not your issue. Your own faith and your realization that homosexuality is not a choice, caused a crisis of faith in you until you were able to separate Old Testament law and New Testament grace. Your elitist attitude toward Christians that are not as enlightened as yourself, has allowed you to judge VP Pence unfairly. He shouldn't be judged because of one issue. Oh, and when you get a second, pass the GRACE!

Thinking outside the box is okay I guess. But what really counts is what you do with your head inside the box.

I don't need a retort for your nonsense because it is absurd. Did the lives of women, blacks or gays improve under Obama? Seems like they keep telling how bad it is for them. All he did was talk about them, make them feel good to garner their vote.

Well, I guess Old Testament or New for you is just a matter of which hole to plug on your boyfriend!

It's pretty telling when you pick out gay conversion therapy as your single issue stance against a politician! Not that there is anything wrong with that!

That's a stretch, the man is clearly an atheist and a homosexual SJW. More importantly he is a troll, probably another alter ego of who posts as Harry Hamid, Katy Anders, or Nasreen Iqbal!

SpanishWarDonkey said...

Treat everyone the same, actually admit that you're not against Sharia Law, you're against not having your OWN sharia law, then l'll consider extending Pence, and the hard core religious right the same courtesy.

Harry Hamid said...

Yeah, well, Comey said some things and made some decisions that defy explanation. Obviously, Secretary Clinton would have canned him had she won, right?

The problem is that when someone is investigating your campaign/admin and you got elected in part because of a promise to "drain the swamp," you want to can your investigator in a way that looks beyond reproach.

If he had appointed an independent counsel, would that have supplemented or replaced the FBI investigator? Seems like leaving an investigation intact and independent would have made sense.

But let's admit it: Comey was a mess.
