The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I'm almost through with The Keepers from Netflix. It's really, really good. I'm just skeptical of any "witness" who recalls events from almost 50 years ago. If you don't know someone's background, it's hard to take anything they say at face value. 
  • I'm apparently a very restless sleeper, and it drives Mrs. LL crazy. I've given her permission to hit me and wake me up if I'm bothering her. She has readily accepted that permission. 
  • The NRA has ramped up its game. It is now running an ad on The Ticket referencing the Dallas police shootings from one year ago and is using the phrase that people "were marching against police."
  • What a weird storm last night. A home on Timarron golf course in Southlake suffered a tremendous lightning strike. #WarnUsPeteDelkus!:
  • Remember Representative Steve Scalise, the Republican from Louisiana who was shot at the baseball practice last month? He is back in ICU.
  • There's a moron anonymous commentor on here who keeps asking me if Trump is launching nukes on North Korea as "you said he would." I never said he would. I said that I fear he is thinking about it. 
  • If you see a press release which has "For Immediate Release" at the top, you know you have a very old school PR guy behind it. Was there a time when something wasn't for immediate release?
  • "Does" or "Do"?
  • I didn't see this from last March in the New York Times (and it references Fort Worth). It's about the militarization of police: 
  • Great point by a couple of you yesterday after I asked if a family member or close friend is employed by government -- you brought up Lockheed Martin. Those folks aren't technically government employees but are 100% practically government employees. Throw in Bell Helicopter as well. 
  • Trump is on an overseas trip. Get ready.: 
  • And in the same speech he reminded Poland that they were invaded by the Soviet Union and Germany. "That's trouble. That's tough," he said. Like they didn't remember. Or maybe he just learned that from the teleprompter.
  • Random opinion: "Best BBQ" talk whips me to no end. 
  • Within the year, Texas will have closed eight prisons. One of them is Bridgeport's Pre-Parole Transfer Facility.
  • Is it just me, or has it be smoldering hot over the last few days? I mean even more than your average Texas summer.

It's more humid than usual. 105 and low humidity in DFW is more comfortable than 95 and high humidity, or even 85 with maximum humidity.

The NRA will never dial back the rhetoric until minority leaders make a nation-wide push to arm every Brown & Black American Citizen. Then and only then will the NRA suddenly grow a conscious.

" But I'm scared that Trump is going to sit around and get mad and then start launching nukes in a fit of rage. "

Hey Skippy, This is that deplorable moron. Are you still scared? Has Trump started launching nukes into North Korea yet? I still can't find anything about it on the news. Egg on face much?

I'm surprised you over looked this (if you did) or even more surprised if you saw & didn't post it. In any event, Wordkyle has a new source for all of the relevant important news in the world.

Skippy, Your fear of Trump is misdirected. You should be hiding under a blanket drinking hot chocolate and drawing in a coloring book about the fear of North Korea launching a missile that will hit the US. But yet you fear the person that was elected to protect us. You can thank your boy Bill Clinton, who gave them nuclear secrets, for your fear.

Skippy Guy, these 2 statements are not exactly the same.

Skippy, Is Trump still launching nuclear bombs into Korea? I can't find anything about it. Are you part of CNN fake news?"

Some press releases are "embargoed", meaning the information contained within isn't to be printed/released until after a certain date.

The National Knife Association had no comment today when asked about the murder of 4 children and one adult in Georgia today. The liberal weenies are once again pounding the broken drum of banning of knives or the strict control of them.

It was and is common for press releases to be "embargoed" until a specific date and time.

You could throw school employees into that "gov't employee" group, too. Oh, unless you consider insurance, retirement, etc. SMH!

You do know that Bell Helicopter does a ton of commercial and private business that has nothing to do with the military?

And if we follow the logic you're using to say that Lockheed and Bell employees are practically government employees, can't we follow the same logic and assume that you're a government employee? Most of your income comes from doing work in the court system, right?

Obamacare is a failure. Obama's presidency was a missed opportunity. But then again liberals actually accomplish nothing.

Hobby Lobby facilitate the theft and illegal smuggling of artifacts from Iraq, even though their own legal counsel told them the stuff was almost assuredly hot? I am shocked a Christian based business would do that. Shocked! Didn't they read my Commandments?

"If you don't know someone's background, it's hard to take anything they say at face value."
Looks like the guys in today's RTG pic are seriously studying her background. And her foreground and face value are worthy of scrutiny, too!

If you were to remove the word "Cowboys" and said "Do recent events...?", would that sound right? It do to me!

I'm a restless sleeper, too. Just last night I had a recurring dream of tussling with someone, and violently kicked a table next to the chair I was in. Many years ago I nearly broke my foot while sleeping on the top bunk of a ship. Kicked a piece of angle iron about 16" above me and caught the edge on the arch of my foot

FYI the protest march was the "black lives matter" response to what it perceived as police brutality. Then a black guy takes a gun and starts shooting police. Your little blog is beginning to resemble the news. If you really want to help matters why not try being balanced. Then again this is your blog and you're a lawyer so I may be asking the impossible.

Peace

Re: Does vs. Do

Both should be "do." The subjects of the sentences are "arrests" and "suspensions," not "Cowboys'" or "the Cowboys'."

The leader of North Korea was nuts before Trump became President. He has said he wants to attack the U.S. as soon as he has missiles that can accomplish that. I also worry that Trump is thinking about taking action to stop this...but WHAT IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO? It's his job to stop the threat.

" I said that I fear he is thinking about it."

Skippy, so now you know what Trump is thinking? So why don't you put that super power of knowing what people think to good use?

Berry,
I don't like you. You are whiny. You are a pune. You are a weasel. BUT you better go get a sleep study done for your health's sake. This is what your wife would tell you to do. She told me about your restlessness the other night. :)

Barry, do you secretly hope to consummate your secret self loathing Delkus man crush? Seriously, whatever criticisms you have of him or Eagar, you come across as just as petty of a little biznitch a thy may be. Get a grip son.

Skippy Guy, saying fear what he is thinking is not saying he knows what he is thinking. There is a difference. You are reaching.

What is disturbing about the Keepers is the fact that there were many nuns who knew about the molesting priest and said nothing.
