The Campaign For DA

7.18.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • "Repeal and Replace" Obamacare is dead once again.  The Republican have the House. They have the Senate. And they have the Presidency. Yet, it's over. So much winning.
  • Oh, my!
  • There was a really wild story about a medical school dean at USC. He was full throttle. But I bet that happens far more than anyone is willing to admit. This is the "young companion" - not the dean.
  • A gal who just happens to be transgendered managed to get a photo with Greg Abbott. (He didn't know.)
  • If you don't watch Game of Thrones, skip this. If you do, it'll take you a second to recognize her: 
  • The Balch Springs ex-cop was indicted yesterday for killing the young black kid. But I don't think the  Dallas D.A. knows what it is like to be D.A. You don't make guarantees:
  • As far as the top three are concerned, most Texas prosecutors would call it theft.
  • Heck of a day for the Cowboys: Zeke allegedly punched "DJ Dtrain" and Lucky Whitehead's dog was held by "Boogotti Kasino".  Edit: If you want to see the crazy Boogotti video wanting $20,000 for the dog, it is here. And I've issued language warnings before, but now I'm issuing a triple not double fake language warning. 
  • What does this mean?:
  • The Ticket has spent several segments spending the entire time promoting various HBO shows without one word of criticism. These are ads. (You really believe both The Hardline and The Musers think the documentary The Defiant Ones is worthy of a full segment?)
  • Fox and Friends came to the defense of Ann Coulter this morning:
  • I got this promotion yesterday in my Twitter timeline. Yep. Their super-computing-demographic-profiling-ad-targeting technology just proved I'm a little hipper than some of you boys believe.
  • Those Whataburger commercials where people recount how they did anything and everything to get to Whataburger makes me very sad for them (if they were real.) And I like Whataburger.
  • This is from Fox News. May I remind you Trump won Wise County with 83.8% of the vote.: 
  • The Iran nuclear problem has suddenly been solved: 
  • Here's the link to the college debt story referenced on the front page of the Morning News (below). It's entitled, "As Paperwork Goes Missing, Private Student Loan Debts May Be Wiped Away."
  • It's Decatur Church vs. Oilfield Operating Company in the first paragraph of the Update. That caused me to think of "prescriptive easement" for the first time in 30 years.

Remember when Barry used to complain about commenter's endless criticism of Obama?

Biggest fingernails-on-chalkboard commercial on the air right now: the Whataburger one with the girl talking about bringing her professor food because she got in an auto accident and was late for class. "If you're late you've got to bring something; you've got to bring a meal." No, that's not how life works. If you're late, you get where you're going as quickly as you can; you don't stop to buy a hamburger.

Trump is just incompetent. That is to be expected from a reality show pitch man who was stripped of control of his real estate holdings back in the 1990s.

Love the Iran troll. It's a statement of fact, but some around here will discredit it without any basis.

Trump still looks good compared to the incompetent idiot that preceded him in office. An unproductive Congress is also less destructive than the idiots that manipulated the passage of Obamacare. The "Affordable" Health Care Act....what a crock of crap. It is always difficult to get rid of stupid legislation like that. When will we start looking at providing life insurance and car insurance for non-workers?

I just cannot take all these deals he's making, plus all the winning. I don't know how anyone in their right mind still supports this mess. Also? I got that grille ad, too. I feel so hip right now.

You mean the ACA that was modeled directly after RomneyCare (who I'd bet a day's wages you voted for in 2012) that was actually introduced in the early 90's by the ultra-liberal Heritage Foundation? You mean THAT Affordable Care Act?

Regarding Obamacare, I'll repeat what I've said here before: Once a government program is established, no matter how miserable a failure it is, it's harder to kill than a Louisiana cockroach.

Polls are very scientific- first, a sample has to be selected, (everyone in the 213 area code with the prefix 555) then they have to answer the phone and answer survey questions (instead of hitting ignore, or telling the poll taker they are on the Do Not Call List).
That would leave people willing to accept calls from unknown numbers, that have five minutes to spare during the workday.

Boy, Trump is pouring the Kool-Aid with his Tweet. Didn't pass because of obstructionist Democrats in the Senate? It didn't pass because he and McConnell couldn't muster a majority of REPUBLICANS.

Barry, did you see where the U. S. Attorney General says we need to increase civil seizure of assets instead of decrease it. Without full due process. Makes you proud to be an American in 2017, doesn't it?

Frequently I will type out comments that for some reason I think will provide some clarity, common sense and understanding to how many on the conservative side tend to think and there reasons for doing so.......being a conservative I seem to think I could address issues from that point of view. I carefully word each comment as to not offend or insight negativity from anyone. I did it today as well but as usual i just deleted all of it and said to hell with it. My reason? It is pointless as this country and its citizens are so divided that I do not think we will ever be together again (not that we were always joined at the hips). It is sad that the country (and its people) that changed the world in so many ways for the better (despite our flaws) cannot seem to get along. After 911 there was this great since of patriotism and love of this country but it appears it has long since past. I am not sure where we are headed and perhaps there will be something that brings this country together again but as it stands; the disrespect, what we consider as priorities, the lack of integrity, the lack of attention to the word of God (yes I am one of those people) and the general craziness among us all is moving this country to a place that will be difficult for us to make things better for future generations. Trump may not be perfect (and he is definitely rough around the edges) but I do believe the man is trying and I also believe his heart is in the right place. I am not sure we can say that about everyone.........left or right, republican or democrat.

Skippy Stay Woke! Has Trump started launching nukes into North Korea yet?

Bear said...

Trump's problem is the Republican Senate and House. Since he is not one of them, they will not support him. They would rather keep failed policies in place than admit that an outsider (not from Washington DC) is able to fix their screw-ups.

Protect the party at all cost.

And 10:14, you just demonstrated how IGNORANT you are of how modern poll sampling is done. Is it perfect? NO! But it's a hell of a lot more involved and complex than you make it out to be. DUMBASS!

I agree with you with you exception: I believe Trump is in it for himself and his family. If it happens to help someone else, then that's great. But first and foremost he is going to take care of Trump and all things Trump. And Trump "winning" is all that matters.

Well, 11:02, you may be on to something. I'm sure we can all agree that Abbott does pee sitting down.

Re: The dog ransom video.

A society that can't round up those heathens and dispose of them permanently will find itself lost forever. Super-predators was one of the few valid points Hillary ever made.

To 11:54, I went back and looked at my post and man I did butcher it up......I do apologize for the errors. I know that insight should have been incite and there should have been their. I probably have a few more typos but even with them I think people get what I am saying. I want to thank you however for proving my point about the negativity and divisiveness because I have no doubt you are a miserable son of a bitch that cannot find the decency and merit in anything that is different from your way of thinking. I will refrain from commenting further as the whole theme of my post was how disrespectful we are to each other and divided as a country. I hope you are able to find some happiness and a cure for the bug you have up your ass.

Oh no Barry. Prager' tweet has started a discussion about how destructive the leftist media is to Western Culture.

You make a fool out of yourself every time you try to attack Prager.

I'm taking a break on talking about the President at all.

I will note that I'm consistently surprised that so many geniuses - people who are forced to say they';ve told us that the latest headlines "Prove what they've been saying all along" waste their genius insulting people in blog comments day in and day out.

So glad that Da Vinci and Einstein didn't have access to blog comment secitons or else they too might have wasted their genius bickering online, informing everyone else how smart they were, just like our own resident expert-on-everything.
