The Campaign For DA

7.21.2017

Random Friday Morning PostsThoughts*



  • The Wichita County District Clerk fought with County Commissioners over the court wanting her to cut two positions due to budget concerns and the modernization of e-filing. (You could tell that meeting was tense. One commissioner asking why her employees were on social media all the time. Her responding that the budget crisis was a lie.)
  • The O.J. parole hearing being televised has to be a first. Side note: I heard his NFL pension and actor's pension from SGA are protected from creditors. Is that true? 
  • O.J's lawyer reminded me of Todd Bridges. (And that guy was awful in the hearing):
    Those are two different sized heads.
  • One of these days, when we become more evolved, the concept of "parole boards" will be the subject of Supreme Court scrutiny. Think about it. Appointed individuals, not jurors, arbitrarily determine a person's most fundamental right: Freedom. (One of the parole board members was wearing a Kansas City Chiefs tie.)
  • A hot topic yesterday was "What was the first major media story you remember?" Mine corresponds with what prompted the question: The moon landing. I was at Vacation Bible School graduation in Bridgeport, and I think it was a Friday or Saturday evening. My parents told me we were going home to watch it. And I felt like there was almost an order of, "You will watch this."
  • The White House's press conference, which now does not allow video, are getting tricked up nevertheless. Look at this from yesterday. The signs. The columns. The purple lighting. That is Idiocracy.
  • And from that assistant press secretary gal just last Fall: She provided us with this golden nugget.
  • Trump News: The Washington Post is reporting he has inquired to his lawyers about who he has the power to pardon (including himself). As my dad told me back in my younger political days: "Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel and paper by the ton." Prediction: The Post and the Times will eventually bring him down with truth. 
  • The first Cowboy's pre-season game is less than two weeks away.
  • A jaw dropping college football development happened yesterday: It was revealed that the Ole Miss football coach had made at least one call (the school said it was a "pattern") to an escort service. He quit on the spot with football season a few weeks away.
     
  •  Freeze was still owed over $12 million on his contract, and he walked away from it. And then he issued the following very bizarre statement. You knew things were off when it began with "one of the better football schools in Mississippi". And "Peter Senior" was talking about what? And he channeled "a vast right wing conspiracy": 
  • And the coach was caught, it seems, because of an open records request for his phone records of his government issued phone. Yep, that's what he used to make the calls. How every government employee doesn't understand their records of communications through government issued phones and computers are public record is mystifying. 
  • If you have dogs in the house then I know you despise anytime the radio or TV fires off a doorbell ring. 
  • I know many old-timers in Bridgeport who would never dream they would see this: The Chamber of Commerce promoting a liquor store in the city with a Decatur themed name. EDIT: Wow! This is a business in Decatur!

  • I hate "weather talk", but this heat is bizarre. It seems different -- probably due to the humidity and a very windless summer. For those who have to work outside for a living, you are a better person than I am. I couldn't do it.

The moon landing was on a Sunday afternoon, and the "one small step" that evening.

Eighter Liquor. That's a hell of a name.

Re: Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce.

Yep, this Bridgeport *Old Timer doesn't like it one bit. Especially since the Eighter Liquor store is a business LOCATED IN DECATUR, TX. It is not a "Decatur-Themed" store located in Bridgeport.

Why is the BRIDGEPORT Chamber of Commerce, (funded partially by Sales and Property Tax from the City of BRIDGEPORT), advertising for a business in DECATUR?

Because they decided long ago to let businesses not in the City Limits become members, ($$$ Grab).

If I was a Merchant in Bridgeport that paid chamber dues I would be pissed if out-of-town-businesses got the same (or better) support and advertising that I did. Especially since my city taxes are paid to help fund the CoC.

DOJ investigating Clinton = per se evidence of her guilt.

DOJ investigating Trump, multiple resignations despite after the fact ethics waivers, multiple undisclosed meetings timed suspiciously with issues concerning Syria and Russian sanctions with people known to lobby for Russian interests,Trump attempting to discredit his own AG and head of the DOJ investigation, lying on ethics disclosures, and private meetings off the record with the leader of the country around which most of this swirls = nothingburger.

Any of you "old timers" remember when Pat Lambert got enough support to call a local option liqueur election in Bridgeport? For years there were friendships that went on hiatus & some businesses suffered because of support/nonsupport. I know because I worked for one of them. Pat was just 40 years ahead of his time. Today he would be a hero.

RE: OJ NFL Pension

I can remember when he Goldman family sued him and won their civil case against OJ. The one thing they could not touch was his NFL pension. All his other assets were free game.

As to the SGA pension, I don't remember that one being discussed specifically, but it would seem logical that cannot be touched either.

A couple of things to think about: Your criticism of parole boards seems a bit off. "Parole" means being released before completion of a sentence, right? So the decision of this panel of "appointed individuals" which you seem to disapprove of is to allow someone to be free before they have suffered the full punishment as determined by a jury of their peers.

From your (I gather) pro-parole stance, shouldn't your attitude be "Isn't it great that a panel of a few appointed individuals can determine if this guy gains his freedom early, rather than having to go through the cumbersome and flawed jury system?"

How is it that the Washington Post (and apparently everyone else in the free world) is so informed about Trump's conversations with his lawyers?

a number of states exempt retirement $ from seizure to satisfy a judgment. California is one such state. So is Texas (Property Code Section 42.0021).

The owner of Eighter Liquor's (disgustingly named) wife is the Bridgeport Chamber lady.

wordkyle said...

933 - First, thank you. When someone posts as a "DF," it means they aspire to be as credible as the original.

Now, as far as what you're actually trying to say: To a point, you're right. It's two different situations. Hillary Clinton operated in the traditional landscape where the majority of politicians and the press did their best to protect her and to promote her candidacy. When investigations happened, they had to be very serious indeed.

Trump operates in a landscape full of enemies -- especially in his own party -- and very few allies. Every time he farted, a firestorm of accusations, investigations, and claims became the leading story of the news cycle as Trump's gas-passing meant nothing less than total global destruction. With all the crazed nonsense from the Left (including the media) it becomes easy to "lean against the wind," and reflexively reject any claims being made.

Trump & co. may wind up being guilty of something. They're political amateurs, and unaware of all the traps that have been laid for them which a career politician would instinctively avoid.

What a time to be alive.

Pres. Trump is asking whether he can pardon himself.

Wordkyle apparently agrees that "the crazed nonsense from the Left" may turn out to be onto something because, he agrees, "Trump & co. may wind up being guilty of something."

The White House makes visual aids for press conferences where it has banned cameras.

What a time to be alive.

ALL pensions are protected from civil/criminal suits other than the IRS by the "Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA)." The "Pension Protection Act of 2006" signed by Obama, doesn't change the protection from lawsuits provided by ERISA. Florida is a retirement mecca because it also provides retirees protection from judgement forfeiture for homes and other assets. Florida's additional asset protection probably explains why Simpson is moving to Florida. Records indicate Simpson has at least $500,000 in a lump sum, in back pension, waiting for him from his NFL pension. It was disclosed, during the Goldman Family civil suit that Simpson had invested $5,000,000. in his Screen Actors Guild pension (which was protected by ERISA). Simpson should garner $100,000+ from NFL, $150,000+ from SAG and $42,000+ from Social Security for annual net amount somewhere around $300,000. Simpson will receive more from SS since he hasn't started collecting prior to age 70. Felons, while incarcerated in prison, aren't eligible to collect SS.

I understand. There is also an ad running on the Ticket for a boat rental place at PK called Naylor On The Water. That is their website name.

I was wondering where OJ's people (if he still has people) found this attorney. He just seemed very unprepared.

My favorite part in the little I got to view was when he was trying to locate a letter he wanted to read. He couldn't find it and turned to OJ and asked "Did you take it?"

Not sure that is the best thing to say when your client is doing 9 years for theft!

SAG , not SGA. Now if only the wise county oil field workers would join a union, at least they would get protections like OJ.

This was at the end of Vacation Bible School - which your parents made you attend. I'm guessing this day was probably the catalyst for the rest of your rebellion against your upbringing. Now look at you. A miserable, Godless, left-wing, nut. To quote Merle, "mamma tried" and Daddy apparently.

Actually looks like you can be better off doing what OJ did. Get fed, medical, housed and free clothes and then get out and collect an even higher SS payment, since you can't collect in prison. Bonus points for going back in when you can't take care of yourself and having the system take care of you instead of paying for a nursing home
