The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Nine people were found dead and at least 39 were found packed into a trailer in San Antonio in a "human trafficking" incident. Here's something I've heard no one mention: In 1987, eighteen undocumented aliens were found in a boxcar in Sierra Blanca, Texas. Dallas based KLIF conservative talk show host David Gold said at the time, which caused a firestorm, “I don’t know if your mind works like mine, but those people got what they deserved.”
  • Mrs. LL went to Roswell, NM with a friend. She was giddy. She sent this. 

  • One of our two U.S. senators, who I thought was the non-crazy one, thought this would be a good idea over the weekend: 
  • I had to have help identifying this bird at Lake Bridgeport. It's a Turkey Vulture. And, trust me, it was as big as a turkey. (And those white feathers are very close to a map of the U.S.)
  • The Cowboys' opening press conference was a train wreck. Jason way lying as usual, Jerry talked even crazier than usual, Stephen tried to keep it on track, and PR man Rich was tense. 
  • He's hard to keep up with. He was in full panic mode yesterday: 
  • And remember on Friday when I said the Times and the Post will bring him down?: 
  • And this morning he sent a message that Jeff Sessions days are numbered (they are) and that he continues to practice "whataboutism". This is not normal.:
  • Someone suggested this Cowboy's Lucky Whitehead "abducted dog" story was nothing but a publicity stunt for the Fort Worth rapper "Boogotti Kasino".  Love that name.  And The Ticket had him on for a segment on Friday and didn't lay a glove on him as they allowed him to promote his new "album". It was weird.
  • I had a Ticket personality, who I've done nothing but promote and speak fondly of over the years, go off on me online for my "that was a commercial disguised as a segment" position. (And then on his Sunday show, after years of trying to distance from saying, "I think space is super gay" said, regarding the current space program, "There's something selfish about space.")
  • It's going to be in the 100s this week. And that soaking rain last night, on and already saturated ground, in going to make is miserable. 
  • We built a $13 billion war ship? Yep. The USS Ford.
  • Jordan Speith: Good guy or spoiled brat?
  • I bet Yu Darvish ends up with the Dodgers.
  • If you are an employer and one of your employees is a member of "Proud Boys", you might want to re-think it. (I had no idea they existed.)

That rain on 'already saturated ground'... I know where you live and the ground is NOT already saturated, unless you left the sprinklers on.
Rain in July always makes it feel miserable, but we sure needed it!

Jordan Speith is a great young man. I cannot believe you would even consider him to be a spoiled brat. That is worthy of an internet troll.
There are scores of spoiled brats in professional sports but Jordan is not one of them.
If having a loving family and being able to attend Jesuit and UT qualifies you to be a brat then you need to get a bigger notepad.
I saw him at church by himself last month.
Research his relationship with his sister and come back and see me.

Here's something I have heard no mention of pertaining to the wets in the trailer.
What is the ICU per day rate in San Antonio hospitals ( indigent) ?
Severe dehydration and heatstroke can lead to coma and long term debilitation, in which the patient essentially is a vegetable.
I would never wish that on anybody and especially kids, but ............................

Listen to Speith's speech after winning The Open. It was gracious, humble and thoughtful. It's as if he got PR lessons from Mack Brown and perfected his style by age 23. Unlike most "kids," he didn't used the word "like" once in his speech.

Proud Boys is an odd name for a fringe group. The name makes me think of a gay pride group of young men.

Your mention of Sierra Blanca reminded of the Plane Wreck at Los Gatos.

David Gold's comment from 30 years ago was one of the first things I thought of when hearing of the tragedy in San Antonio.

I also thought of the comment made by an employee of radio station 1310 The Ticket who called people in San Antonio, dirty Mexicans.

David Gold was roundly criticized for his remark and rightfully so. 1310 The Ticket just moved on and people like Gordon Keith are given awards all the time it appears. So it goes.

Mr. Keith was not the guy who made the dirty Mexican comment just to be clear up in here.

I like that Barry is obsessed with Trump and often seems confused and hysterical.

I'd like to see Jake in the ring with you. That would be sweet. But seriously, you are trying to tell an insider that you know more about advertising at his employer than he does? I don't think he'll miss your support.

But what Not Sam? But they're Mexicans so you don't care? But they asked for it? But you don't want to pay for it, so it's somehow less bad than if a white guy was in the same state?

Is there an ethnicity/nationality/legal status exception to the Golden Rule, or the teachings of Jesus?

It's always been clear that you are a POS, but I never expected you to put it so plainly in writing.

Barry is not nearly as obsessed with Trump like the Trump Lovers are. They are not savvy enough to be confused, but are hysterical and giddy with happiness.

Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet?

At 9:09, you mean the guy that pissed in a bowl of cereal and ate it as publicity stunt to prove he was more 'hipster' than Carles? Or the guy that gave an interview while intermittently sniffing key bumps of heroin on camera to promote his book? That is some high comedy (pardon the pun).

Sad thing is, it's not even original. He is just a 2-bit knock off of Hunter Thompson.

The BCRA would end the Medicaid program as we know it by taking lifesaving healthcare away from millions. The BCRA takes hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicaid and gives it to the very wealthiest individuals and corporations in the form of tax breaks. This is simply immoral and contrary to the teachings of our Catholic faith. Jesus teaches that “whatever you did for one of the least of my brothers and sisters, you did for me.” Our response should not be to take healthcare away from the most vulnerable by cutting and capping Medicaid.

To cut Medicaid and take healthcare from millions of people is not a pro-life stance. We urge you to be mindful of the needs of all of our people and the call to the common good. Vote no on the BCRA.

Yes when the last two months you are 6 inches above normal rain totals the ground is saturated. Which is why with the heat above our humidity has been worse than normal this year.

Sorry brah- the bird is a Muscovy duck, so called due to its origins in Moscow Russia.
It even looks more like a duck in profile in your pic. as opposed to a vulture.

11:53 - I am not sure what you are saying... eating your own piss and saying something funny on someone else's podcast is a greater achievement than writing "two decent books"?

Mcinnes was mildly funny 7 or 8 years ago, now he is just out to shock. But, hey, if that's what lifts your overalls, have at it.

2:43 - You thought that Mcinnes was on the left back then.

1. Years ago, The mzchief family went to the Roswell UFO museum. It was such great campy fun. However, the best part of the visit is how seriously the people who run the museum take that UFO "science."


2. Crime is a risky business. The US should make sure the tale, regarding the deaths, of the people who made the CHOICE to get in the back of a semi-truck, in an attempt to sneak into the US, is told and spread throughout Mexico and South America. People know when they put their lives in the hands of other criminals when engaged in a crime, they run the risk of dying. Those people KNEW they were getting in the back of a semi-truck as part of a scheme to break the law.

What they did is no different than if someone burgles a home, in an attempt to steal items, to feed themselves and their family and the homeowner shoots and kills them. Death isn't the punishment for burglary but it is an accepted/expected outcome. Like I said, crime is a risky business.

Oh Rage,
Midol, Pamprin, for gosh sake something.
The "but".
You moonbats are so easy to troll, and your knee jerk lashing out is so predictable- that if it was a gambling algorithm "we" could get rich off of the automatic nazi, racist, and other colorful titles you spew.
The but was the simple truth that every country South of our border has as a way of life - and a DNA strand of corruption woven into their makeup. This event and so many more on a smaller scale along with the obvious fact that a large percentage of our GDP now goes to supporting a culture that could have stood up and done something besides having to rely on our stupidity and generous nature.
BOTH sides of the aisle are responsible for this. The Dems love their plantation mentality voters that derive in a couple of decades from it- and the Rinos love it for the sake of cheap labor. It is a tragedy.
The but was the fact that if we had a proper border- these events would become almost non existent-
Nobody says anything about the 100's of bodies decomposing as we speak in Starr County and neighboring areas.
The but was the fact that if employers had a mandatory law stating that a proper vetting had to take place before a person could be hired or face jail time or enormous fines otherwise then this wouldnt have transpired.
The but was the fact that our mindset is such, that the majority of people really believe that strawberries and houses would be too expensive to purchase without illegal immigration- I live in Idaho now and can tell you that other than Mexicans can and do swing a hammer, pour concrete, hang sheetrock, dig potatos, shovel snow, lay brick, pick up trash, clean houses, AND cook Mexican food.
In fact I haven't seen a Latino in quite a while- and everything seems to be cohesive and functioning just fine with our economy up here.
You see Rage, I couldn't imagine being in a tractor trailer in that God forsaken San Antone sun- been in plenty of 140 degree attics in my life- and that was a horrible way to go.
BUT........
This was totally avoidable.
