The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • All last weekend I was all over new White House spokesman Anthony Scaramucci because he was a train wreck waiting to happen. Yesterday he called the New Yorker and fired off the most profane (recorded) interview that has ever occurred in modern day politics if not ever. When you think things can't get anymore insane, they do. This is not normal. (And the New Yorker printed it without edits.)
  • And he actually called himself "The Mooch." I love this man.
  • He tried to explain his profane comments later. Dude, you called a reporter for an on the record discussion!
  • Back when America was great, Lenny Bruce was put in jail for that kind of language. 
  • Very random thought: Back in 1996 I decided to finally go back to a Bridgeport football game and saw "the spread" offense for the first time. It was a playoff game in Graham. I was fascinated. But this also occurred: During the game I heard someone behind me talking about the Internet. I remember turning around and asking, "How do you get on that?"
  • How did I get on? I went to the one company in Decatur providing service who lent me multiple discs to install a Netscape browser. I couldn't figure it out. I finally had to take the whole home computer to them and they installed it for me. 
  • The Messenger post yesterday regarding the appointment of an interim JP has some golden nuggets of tension and insight in there if you know what you're looking for. It's even better if you know Wise County politics at this moment in time. 
  • People who were arrested on Wednesday/Early Morning Thursday in Wise County weren't "arraigned" and allowed to post bond until after 4:00 p.m. on Thursday. It all is based upon when the judge decides to show up.
  • Mrs. LL put out humming bird feeders which has led to the most fascinating visuals ever. I never believed I'd see a humming bird fight. 
  • A fake twitter account duped Sports Illustrated:
  • This is insane. A cop stops a city council person for DWI and lets him go.The cop was fired. And now this: "A Tom Bean city councilman who was let go after a Saturday evening traffic stop in which he appeared to be intoxicated was involved in a head-on collision Thursday morning." He was charged with Intoxication Assault.
  • Going back to The Mooch, last weekend I made fun of him bragging that Trump could "sink three foot putts." The following, however, is disturbing. The official released White House transcript has changed "three" to "thirty."  Modern day Pravda.

Steve Bannon certainly has an interesting way to allegedly relax in the privacy of his WH office. I didn't know he was that limber.

Ever notice there is a developing trend of "appointing" individuals following resignations right before elections in Wise County?

1996 Game in Graham against Vernon. They (Vernon) had a great running back who went on to play College ball. Bridgeport had Jacob Allen at QB who also went on to play College ball. Great game, Vernon pulled out the win.

1996 internet... It had to be North Texas Web Service. They provided a free line to Decatur Middle School, to the computer classroom I shared with Barbara Haley. It was the first internet connection in the district and the only one for several years. When one AD discovered what that meant, he would commandeer our classroom for UIL updates.
Our modem was a freebie that the Star-Telegram provided each of us if we went to a training session on 'what is the internet'. They gave us free access to AP/UPI databases and we taught our kids to search for valid information to use in research papers. DMS was WAY ahead of the technology learning curve for that time period.

It's ok dude, chill. The pillars of society are also all Decatur FBC members, and when the hangover wears off, they will have an old time tent revival and repent til the next reunion.

Amen 9:40! It's a shame. Brenda won the election by working her tail off and by showing class in public and social media. It seems if you lose a county position, then all you have to do is run to a friend who is also a R and get them to appoint you. The days of voting straight R are over and now many are splitting their ticket on local elections. This is why liberals and rich conservatives that moved here are getting involved in local politics and shaking things up. They are tired of the family owned and operated mentality of the Wise county good ol boy system. When the County turns blue, don't blame the Weat side Mexicans that got out to vote, blame the white working class R's that didn't or voted D in the local election.

Local politics... One of the local politicos mentioned was famous for back in the day coming home wearing underwear of the opposite sex causing them to be busted by their spouse. This person was also known for taking a bet with Bobby McCulloch regarding downing a fifth of Jack. The bet was 100 bucks. It was downed and then promptly vomited back up. Bobby only paid under pressure from the crowd (of which I was part).
That's all I know about said person.

Wearing underwear of the opposite sex is wrong? Nobody informed me of that fact. And after I just got my Victoria's Secret Charge Card.

Have you ever considered that maybe Barry was referring to a bird that was actually humming rather than a hummingbird?

Don't correct him until you're sure of the facts.

Glad you have found the humming birds. I have been feeding them 40 years or so. Only use sugar and water..no red dye necessary and never use that premixed stuff.The recipe is 1/4 Cup Sugar to 1 Cup boiled water. I heat the water in the microwave then add the sugar..let it cool. Change at least every 4 days. The Texas heat makes it turn too syrupy and spoils..they won't drink if it goes bad though. Clean your feeder with hot water no soap. They will leave by the end of September but sometimes first week of October. Expect them to return next April 1st...but they have been coming in earlier in recent years. This year it was the middle of March. Enjoy...they will always come back now that you have started feeding. I know the same ones come back because they still look at the spot where I used to hang one. If you are lucky and be there when they leave they will come up to you and give you a big stare to say thank you for the sweet nectar. Oh and get yourself a small handheld feeder...they will come to your hand and drink or maybe sit on your finger.
