The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • Sarah Huckabee read another alleged letter from a young boy (who just happens to be named Frank). He wants to mow the White House lawn because he wants to make money. She then talked about immigration reform. Wow.
  • There was a story of a home invasion robbery in Fort Worth two nights ago. The man, who is an attorney, and his wife and daughter were all home.  And last night I saw the wife just calmly talking about on camera. 
  • Trump is basically declaring war on all of Congress.
  • Conspiracy theorist Jim Marrs has died. He was no stranger to Wise County.
  • I think one of the biggest logistic challenges there would be is schools this time of year. Can you imagine registrations, classroom assignments, scheduling, etc.
  • The College Sophomore in the House has had a babysitting job of a little baby this summer. That makes me nervous. Not that she can't handle it (she's fantastic) but that she will get the "baby bug". I've told her not to get any ideas. My hot opinion to her is to not have a baby until after 30 years old. I'm not sure she understands.
  • This is a weird story: A 38 year old woman has gone missing in the Grand Canyon. Her two children, 10 and 11, who were with her are safe. She is a doctor in Keller. Breaking edit: She has been found dead.
  • Ticket fans only: It's a little weird that Craig and Gordon just suddenly decided to stay behind in California and they had to scramble for emergency fill-ins for them this morning. 
  • I keep hearing about a football official shortage in Texas especially at the under varsity level. That makes sense. Who would want to do it these days and take that abuse?

Used to speak with Jim Marrs a lot when I was younger. My dad was in the Optimist Club in Springtown with him and we would sit together at breakfast. He was always a very nice man to speak with.

May not have always agreed with his conspiracies, but I always liked the man. He lived up around Boyd in the last few years.

Nature and biology and physics are for real. I just can't figure out why we have evolved into a country full of people that make such poor decisions. As if there is a "reset" button like on a video game, instead of numerous and dire consequences. WHY would an "experienced hiker" go into the Grand Canyon without enough water? WHY drive motorcycles at 130 miles per hour at 2AM in the rain? And so forth; too many avoidable tragedies each day.

How can the husband of that hiker be in any kind of mindset to post such a "matter of fact" facebook post immediately after learning his wife died a horrible death? I couldn't do it. I'd be a total mess and facebooking would be the last thing on my mind. Am I weird to think that's weird?

I would turn off the Kevin McCarthy radio show when Jim Marrs was the guest and Marrs was on with McCarthy a lot. That said Mr Marrs was nowhere near as nutty as Robert Groden. R.I.P., Jim Marrs.

Perhaps they are consulting with Bruce Jenner on making the transition? Suffice it to say, Miller & Keith are 2 fruity guys and I am using the term guy very loosely here. Be that as it may so to speak in a world beyond imagination.

Ciao.

I'm guessing that spending 15 minutes making one Facebook post might save having to deal with dozens (hundreds?) of texts/calls/e-mails/etc. I'm not sure what you're implying - that he was involved somehow? Based on the geotag on the photos with the FB post, he was in Key West.

Everyone grieves differently - why do you care how he reacts? Y'all sound like a cop on a bad episode of Dateline: "He didn't cry hard enough; he must be involved."

Craig and Gordon didn't decide to stay behind on the fly and they didn't have to get emergency fill-ins. They talked about it on yesterday's show and Craig said who would be filling in (don't remember who he said and didn't listen today).

There's something fishy about that home invasion.

Oh boy. "Prayers" are pouring in for the mom who died after running out of water in the Grand Canyon as she hiked to try to find help. Prayers that, by definition, are requesting that God now does something wonderful; same God who couldn't even come up with a rain cloud or a cool breeze or a splash of waterfall for this dying mother.

I was half way kidding yesterday when I said that everyone but pro-Americans should put a gun free zone sign in their yard and unlock their doors.

That lady hiker found dead was a very experienced hiker. She should have known how much water would be needed for herself and the two little kids she had with her...she must have been dehydrated and delirious when she made the decision to leave them on a trail to go find water...because the kids were found and she got lost and died...there is something wrong with people who do such foolish things in the first place.

Where on Lake Bridgeport was today's RTG photo taken. We are not familiar with that area.

The following post is dedicated to Jim Marrs, a good guy with a sense of humor. RIP good friend:

See, I told you someone was out to get me. Well, they finally did it.

Barry, the headache at the beginning of school with schedules, arrangements, etc is NOT with the little angels. The headache is when Momma camps out at your desk with her list of special concessions needed for her darling to shine academically. It never ends and she never accepts a "no" answer. Never.

Just shoot me now.
