The Campaign For DA

6.30.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • In the last week I've had home grown tomatoes delivered to my office by two local attorneys. There appears to be a bumper crop in the county this year. (And that ends this Country Agricultural Minute.)
  • I ran into a former Bridgeport resident/former Texas House Rep in Brookshires in Bridgeport yesterday. (Wearing a Baylor visor, no less.) 
  • Something might be wrong with Fox 4's Steve Eagar. I might start a new game called "How long into the broadcast will it be before he stumbles over the teleprompter." (He's had to anchor the 10:00 p.m. newscast alone for about three days this week and it has not gone well.)
  • Fox Sports website has laid off a ton of sports writers this week (including the great Stewart Mandel) after announcing it will focus more on videos than the written word. That's stupid. That's Idiocracy.
  • I'm struggling in my fishing this year. What lure (including color) do you use when the water is incredibly clear?
  • The home page for each Texas appellate court is back up, but the back end database (which has the information that you go there to see in the first place) is still down. That makes three days in a row. Something is royally screwed up.
  • The NRA put out an ad which is a not-so-subtle call for an armed insurrection against the Dirty Lib.
  • "(CNN) - An Ohio city councilman has suggested a controversial solution to the growing opioid problem in his town: If an addict keeps overdosing, the city won't dispatch anyone to save their life." If you won't go out on the second or third time, why go out on the first?
  • A city in Iran, with 1.1 million people, set a world record in high temperature yesterday: 129 degrees. 
  • Loyal Christian and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's offensive tweets yesterday by saying Trump shouldn't be considered a role model because, “When it comes to role models, as a person of faith, I think we all have one perfect role model." She followed that up with saying Trump "fights fire with fire." 
  • Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is still mad about not getting paid after his firing. (USA Today.) He was on The Ticket about a month ago with one of the conditions of the interview being that he got to rant that Tech, in his opinion, screwed him out of over $2 million. And, man, he went off. 
  • Speaking of, whatever happened to Craig James? He holds the distinction of getting Leach fired and losing to Ted Cruz in the same year. That's a bad year. 
  • You realize that they have no idea who the actual shooter and getaway driver were, right? 
  • I think I'm doubling down on my belief that the Bedford girl found in the Arlington landfill was a dumpster suicide. No arrests. No search warrants. No family outrage of "the police aren't doing anything!" I bet she left a note. 
  • Last night a rookie NY Yankee, Dustin Fowler, in the first inning of his first game suffered a gruesome "open ruptured patella tendon." I don't know what that is, and I'm not looking to find out.  
  • The Fort Worth PD Twitter account basically posts nothing but silliness with no real effort to seek the public's help in law enforcement. Then this morning they posted a video of a girl wearing a Peaster High School t-shirt and her friend taken from a Target security cam with the caption "she stole mascara." It even sought Peaster school's twitter account for help. It was quickly deleted and replaced with a different caption. I wonder if the girl wearing the T-shirt is not the one actually accused of theft but the original tweet, referencing Peaster, so implied. (Side note: Aren't there bigger crimes to post about?)
    The deleted tweet.
  • Replaced with this one.

  • Trump will leave for Trump National Golf Club at Bedminster, New Jersey this afternoon. That will make his 32nd day at a golf club as president.

The President is not fit for office. He needs to be examined immediately.

That NRA post is a HUGE lie Barry Green. WOW that ad simply says a clinched fist, aka stay firm in your beliefs. You should be ashamed....or working at CNN. All you are doing is playing on the fact most won't watch the ad. Sad day for you Barry Boy!

The Bedford girl has also been disappeared from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's site. She was listed there for a few days as cause/manner of death pending -- then vanished and doesn't come up in search results.

Hopefully the Bedford girl's death is solved unlike that Missy Bevers murder.

World record for what? Death Valley hit 134 degrees in 1913. In the U.S. most States have record high temperatures that predate WWII before the magnetic activity on the surface of the sun slowed down and we entered into a period of global cooling. The sun is the boss, not Al Gore.

I didn't care when Obama golfed or vacationed, nor do I care when Trump does. Learn to criticize the presidents policies, not his tweets or golf outings.

Barry, tell us who you have the biggest secret self loathing man crush on...Delkus or Eagar?

Check out the Googan Squad on YouTube for fishing tips. They have a sponsored house in the Coppell area (?) from Mystery Tackle Box. Its the MTB crib. Young entrepreneurs making money on the interwebs.

Barry you ought to do a little studying on liberal lunacy and liberal violence. You liberals should be ashamed of your behavior. But then again why would you be responsible?

Normal people must protect themselves from the violent liberals.

10:23 It's not that Trump is setting the world record for days at golf courses, it's the blatant hypocrisy of someone who criticized Obama saying he'd be far too busy as President to go golfing.
Defending Mr. Trump is getting progressively more complicated.

Trump takes weekends off to play golf. Obammy would take weeks off to play golf.

Bedford Girl:

"It may be late September before family and officials know how the teen died, said Carol Lawson, a spokeswoman for the Tarrant County medical examiner.

Bedford police want to make sure the teen's cause of death is shared with her family before anyone else. Police have requested that the entry for the teen's death be removed from the medical examiner's website."

That sounds like suicide.

"Mindless ramblings from a DUI lawyer."

You might even say they were just like, these thoughts, randomly strewn together.

What state are you from? There is no DUI in Texas.

What color lure? You city boys! It's stink bait all the time. No need for fancy lures.

Barry, you need to read an old thriller from 1965. Night of Camp David by Fletcher Knebel (same guy who did Seven Days in May). It's about a paranoid President that is possibly going full bore crazy. Gosh, seems like I am reading about that very thing happening in real life in 2017.

Seems like Rex Tillerson is finally getting his belly full of the clown car that is the White House nowadays. During a closed door meeting with Preibus/Kushner/et al, he threw a major hissy fit about them sitting on or vetoing the names he has been sending up for Presidential appointment to State Department posts. He is trying to do business seriously shorthanded while Trump sends Kushner around the world as his diplomatic errand boy. Wonder how long Rex will hang in. He doesn't need the job.

Barry will have a hard time getting a hold of a 8 inch purple tonsil tickler. He should be able to find a smaller version easily.

"There is no DUI in Texas"

As usually, Rage is wrong.
