The Campaign For DA

6.27.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • A judge on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals deleted his Twitter account. One person pointed out that his Wikipedia page had been edited to reflect he took it down after posting a picture of "whiskey and ammo." Then someone deleted that Wikipedia edit.  I don't know what really happened but the Austin American Statesman and/or Texas Tribune needs to find out. 
  • I didn't know there was one. It's in Kentucky
  • Yesterday evening Trump banged the drums of war in an ominous statement warning Syria: 
  • Uh, isn't this the Syrian airport we "destroyed" with 59 Tomahawk missiles? 
  • After threatening Syria, Trump then woke up this morning and got mad at CNN: 
    (Would a "Fake News" organization admit it made a mistake?)
  • And then Trump went crazier by retweeting remarks (originally posted by the Fox and Friends account) from Mark Levin and Sean Hannity, and a book promotion of Eric Bolling's "The Swamp." 
  • Good grief. As soon as I wrote that bullet point he fires off more evidence of severe mental instability: 
  • The Family Pup showed tremendous mental stability and restraint yesterday: 
  • Re: That 14 year old, Kaytlin Cargill, who was found in an Arlington landfill. Is this a suicide in a dumpster that no one is willing to talk about? Remember all the schools who sent out warnings about Thirteen Reasons Why
  • How do young people afford a house these days? Heck, how does the average American afford a house these days? 
  • This is the horror version of Where the Heart Is:
  • The Supreme Court did a very odd thing yesterday on Trump's travel ban: (1) It agreed to hear the case in the Fall, (2) It allowed it to go into effect unless a refugee can show a "bona fide" relationship to a U.S. person or entity -- a seemingly easy, yet ambiguous, standard, and (3) Noted that the executive order expires in 90 days which will certainly make the case moot by the First Monday in October. 
  • Let's check in on Taxpayer Dollars At Work this morning: (EDIT: Do you guys not realize the social media employee in on the taxpayer's dime?)
  • Wow: The Supreme Court just announced it will take up the issue of sports gambling. (It literally happened a couple of minutes ago. I'll update when I have details.)

Maybe those police officers are on lunch break. Why not post a picture of a police officer on vacation, or sleeping in his or her bed at home, and caption it "your tax dollars at work"? Or, maybe show the open casket of an ambushed police officer, with some caption about wasted tax dollars and how that officer should rise from the dead and get to work.

BG addresses the President's reaction to CNN's false news story -- which was retracted, caused the termination of three reporters, and upset the system enough that all similar stories now have to be run by the top brass -- rather than the causative event itself. Draw your own conclusions.

There are people who actually think a man build a giant boat in the middle east and that somehow he was able to communicate with a couple of polar bears to walk, in two days, from the northern reaches of the earth to this boat.

I hope Trump has enough time to dismantle the corrupt justice department

Syrian airport? What's your point? Not enough damage for ya? Try to have a coherent thought.

Noah was a good man - but he would have been even better if he had accidentally swatted those two mosquitos.

Per the CBO, 22 million Americans will lose health care coverage in the next ten years under the Senate healthcare bill. 15 million would lose Medicaid coverage.

Trump, in May 2015, said “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.” (https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/596338364187602944)

Trump has not made any public comments, at least which I could find, regarding the Senate healthcare bill. From the right wing, four senators have agreed to vote "no" on the bill in its present form but may be open to amendments (Paul, Cruz, Lee, and Johnson). From the moderate wing of the party, Heller agreed to vote “no.” Other potential defectors include Collins, Capito, Murkowski, and Portman because these four are Republican senators from Democratic states or Republican senators from states who rely heavily on Medicare and Medicaid.

The house a person can afford is based on historically low interest rates. The prices of today's homes are artificially inflated by these low rates. I have a few houses and just got off the phone this morning with a hedge fund manager trying to figure how I can hold on to my assets and still not suffer from the deflation that will occur when rates go up. When rates go up, to say seven percent, selling prices will fall 50%. The end result is bankruptcy for homeowners and lenders.

Your tax dollars are fine BG, that is a throwback photo from late 80's maybe 1990. I think a couple of those guys are retired now

I don't care if Trump is crazy. As long as it pisses off you LibTards.

How come no one ever takes a pic of a fireman sleeping on duty or screwing around at the station watching TV and says "your tax dollars at work?"

Tax dollars at work?????

You should get after all the Central Appraisal Districts in the State that do what they want and answer to nobody.

Tax dollars at work? TC DA sent a crew to the Rusty Duncan. Saw them all out drinking. Didn't see any of them in the seminar. Ever. Saw them drinking heavily. Great use of taxpayer money!

Speaking to the relative of Kaytlin Cargill, it was definitely not a suicide. Suspicious individuals in their apartment complex.

Breaking News!!! CNN first news organization in history to retract a story! Wordkyle critically low on Jergens and Kleenex!

Is the Rusty Duncan anything like the Cleveland Steamer?

@10:29 - You are a perfect illustration about what is wrong with our current state of political discourse.

"On today's Flip or Flop we are working with Jenny and James. Both in their mid-twenties, they are ready to start putting down family roots. He is a part time student and manages a local fast food restaurant. She is a teacher at a local daycare. They are working on a tight budget of $650,000, so let's see what we can find!"

@10:30 : You obviously know no one who is a residential appraiser. Their lives are hell right now and they get to do far from anything they want.

1138 - Nooooo...
Three CNN reporters losing their jobs over a story that exemplifies "fake news" is a little more significant than you indicate. Our host focusing on reaction rather than on this situation is also significant.

I ignored your weak attempt at crass humor and chalk it up as another bad choice on your part. Not that I mind crass humor, just not from children.

I wondered about his 90-day bans, too. He said the ban was needed so they could conduct a fuller assessment of the danger. But he's been fighting for the 90-day ban for 5 months now, during which time the 90-day investigation and study ought to be complete.

Right?

This stuff never makes sense to me, regardless of which party it originates with.

Harry Hamid said...

10:29 "I don't care if Trump is crazy. As long as it pisses off you LibTards."

And that's why so many of us hate national soap opera politics, right there.

That picture of FWPD is about 30 years old.

Whether or not having an active web presence is a good use of tax dollars is up for debate.

The air base was rebuilt. Not much more to it than that. Dirt, concrete blocks, mortar, asphalt? So, yes it was bombed out of use, but this weird thing called "time" allows for motivated people to make repairs to things that get boo boos.

2:08 - Barry's inability to date the Fort Worth PD photo is evidence of the subtle deficiencies that cause a person to adopt destructive ideologies. Sad.

Is that family pup a little Papillion? Sure looks like mine from that angle. Regardless, tremendous restraint but also really focused on the subject at hand!! Power to the pup! Wish leaders of our government exhibited the same skills!!!!!

I've spent some time in the Rhome city jail. Believe me, I've produced a lot of gas at the taxpayer's expense.

The Fort Worth PD guys look like the 2000s idea of what 1970s gay porn stars looked like.

That wasnt the jail. That was the community center. Hard to tell them apart.
