The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Trump is mad at the media this morning. (He's confused. The media loves him being on Twitter. It's his staff and lawyers who want him off of it.):

  • There was the longest college world series softball game in history last night. And it was mightily entertaining. (The Freshman In The House will be there tonight.) Side note: Florida has a stud pitcher with the last name of Barnhill. I thought, "Hey, is that the Barnhill who pitched at Justin Northwest, went to UT, and then transferred to the SEC?" Uh, no. She quit playing in 2011. Time is moving by too fast. 
    Not all were impressed.
  • Talk about long games: In the NCAA baseball playoffs, Missouri State played Arkansas over the weekend and the game ended at 3:10 a.m. (And did the UT game end after 1:00 a.m. last night?)
  • We had a good visiting judge filling in for the late Judge Fostel yesterday. But I heard the higher ups in Fort Worth assigned him over the weekend but didn't tell him why. He learned about the death when he got here.
  • I heard the Messenger will have a real nice tribute tomorrow. 
  • That case of the Kirbyville school principal who committed suicide is getting nasty.  An assistant principal has resigned in a scathing letter directed at the school board. It's basically, "You knew he was suicidal but didn't care."
  • A 25 year old NSA contractor has been arrested on accusations she intentionally leaked classified documents. I don't know if America can ever concentrate on the story because no one can get past her name: Reality Winner. 
  • Couple does a ridiculous, but funny, make out bit behind a reporter after last night's NHL finals game. (Video here.)
  • It's the anniversary of D-Day. That always makes me recall that the vast majority of Robert Capa's photos of the event were destroyed (we were left with the "Magnificent Eleven") when a Life magazine employee screwed up in the developing room.

I am just getting caught up on my feeds. After reading every comment on yesterdays Random Thoughts, I came here full of political inspiration. I was going to tell everyone how I am right and they are wrong.

Then I saw the RTGs and it all went out the window. Good show, sir!

The link for the D-Day photos goes to the Arkansas-Missouri State game link.

Since it's D Day. Have you seen a trailer for the documentary about Tony Vaccaro? http://tonyvaccarofilm.com/

I believe HBO has it and I saw a special about it and hope to catch the whole thing. He was a young soldier who smuggled a camera with him when he landed on the beach and he took photos when he could with his unit. Thought you might find it interesting.

I love "one-sided" excuses. The "exhausted" Razorbacks lost to another team in a game that ended at 3 in the morning. Yeah, well the OTHER team also was playing baseball at 3 in the morning...and they were living in hotels during the regional while Arkansas players were in their own beds. Rain "caused" a bad accident. Yeah, but why didn't the other 10,000 drivers that came through that area that rainy day wreck?

RTG - nice twin shot !

This is one of those days when I despise Google. Those liberal fools will commemorate any person or cause that they see fit from their slanted viewpoint. But let an anniversary like D-Day come up and nothing but crickets from those fools. Despicable.

8:59, I was going to do the same thing about Wordkyle complaining about Rage's whataboutism yesterday, despite whatabouting every day of his life, and also got sidetracked. It has taken me until my second click to get back to it.

By the way, the RTG's appear to be sisters. Man, if not for the skank tattoos, they'd be perfect.

Believe me. I saw a picture of Reality and she is no winner. She is a poster child of a liberal weenie snowflake. Rage, is that you?

Did you see the report today that several top DC law firms refused to take Trump for client? One said that he's the worst kind of client because "he won't pay and won't listen." Trump is clearly in trouble and continues to make things worse for himself - and for our country. Sad.

The couple lip-locking behind the reporter was a hoot. Reminded me of a news report on WFAA when the Texas-OU madness in downtown was wild and wooly long ago. Tracy Rowlett in the studio threw it to David Margulies who was amongst the crush of drunk college kids on the sidewalks of downtown Big D. Just as Margulies started his report, a knock out UT coed came up, grabbed his head, and proceeded to shove her tongue down his throat. This mouth-to-mouth went on for at least 20 to 30 seconds (an eternity in TV time). Margulies finally came up for air, said "back to you, Tracy" and then grabbed the beautiful lady and shoved his tongue down down her tonsils in return, which she willingly accepted. Cut back to the studio, where Tracy is laughing so hard, he can't get his breath. The producer immediately sends it to commercial. BEST REMOTE REPORTING EVER!

Some pretty good stuff that Reality Winner allegedly leaked. In spite of Trump continually screaming Fake News, it appears the Ruskies tried to seriously penetrate United States election operations. They even tasked the GRU, the largest Russian intelligence agency, to work on this surreptitious project. This was a 21st Century Act of War by a sovereign nation against another sovereign nation, not the act of a solo hacker in his parent's basement. We should clean house of any so-called American who either encouraged, participated, or just turned a blind eye to this Russian cyber attack. After that, we should dial up the pressure/pain on Mr. Putin and his oligarchs. And every time in the future that Mr. Trump says that there is nothing there, he should be loudly excoriated by all true Americans as a charlatan and liar.

1:09 - doubtful.

Does it strike anyone else that the American ideas that over 2,499 citizens gave their lives for on this date in 1944, some American elite willingly sell or prostitute in 2017 to line their pockets, gain power, or enhance their brand? Quite a dichotomy.

She is pro-Iranian and thinks that white people are terrorists even though she looks to be white her self. How in the hell did she even pass a background check? In an ironic twist, her name is Chelsea Manning and she is demanding a sex change operation and a name change to Bradley Manning. And you still don't think she is a poster child of a liberal weenie snowflake? I've known of lot's of veterans that are flaming liberals.

11:12, Trump is in trouble? Do you have proof? Every president I can remember has had an attorney.
