The Campaign For DA

8.08.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • The Dallas Morning News laid off 45 people after they "outsourced" their advertising. 
  • Heard in a courthouse elevator in Denton yesterday: "I'm sorry. It's just the voices in my head. I didn't take my medication."
  • This is the result of a wreck yesterday of a spouse of a Wise County Courthouse office administrator. Not a scratch on him. And I heard a Decatur police officer went beyond the call of duty. Proof you should wear your seatbelt.
  • Fox 4 News led with a story from over the weekend of yet another road rage case. A girl actually was shot in the arm. I'm now fascinated with watching how people drive and if there is a war going on between two cars. You can see it developing sometimes.
  • There is a new arrest in the DART beating case. The easiest and simplest legal advice ever is this: Shut up. 
  • What an odd and horrible story: A sailboat on Lake O' The Pines in East Texas comes into contact with a power line and three Boy Scouts died. 
  • This is a heck of a start for a court opinion that just came out. The result? Pay the man his money. 
  • Trump has started his own network, "Trump TV". It's a modern day American version of Pravda
  • I've dogged Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett for a couple of years for his "aww shucks" twitter account. It's a disguised and constant political ad.  Then he tweeted this out this weekend implying how poor he was back in the day. Uh, he went to private Baylor University for undergrad and went to the extremely high tone private Duke Law School. He is trying to con you. Being thrifty does not mean you are poor. And there are many, many people who could explain to him what poor is. 
  • One of my favorite sayings when the kids (or Mrs. LL) keep an outside door open for more than five seconds during the summer: "Shut the door. You're letting the bought air out!!"

Baltimore District Court fail--it ain't the ARREST he's complaining about--it's what they did while he was in custody AFTERWARDS that was "heinous"!! Miss the point much? :-)

Barry doesn't realize that NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN,PBS, etc.. have been Leftist Pravda for 20 years? Stupid or liar?

Barry's hysterical confusion over Prager points to Barry experiencing the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

I thought I heard the Captain say,
Pay me my money down,
Tomorrow is our sailing day,
Pay me my money down
Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Man, you know I hate Willett too, but I do think he was probably pretty poor when he was a kid. There were lots of poor kids at Baylor when I was there, and if you do well enough and make the right connections you can climb out of it, which is what he did. I think his climb has been as much because he did well academically as it was that he made the right GOP connections.

That doesn't excuse any of his BS today, though.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump started launching nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

Kayleigh McEnany is the perfect host for TrumpTV. She will baldface lie with a straight face in front of any camera.

"I'm sorry. It's just the voices in my head. I didn't take my medication."

And this was from...somebody in custody? A courthouse employee? An attorney? A judge?
Was it said as a joke? WHAT?!
You're not giving us much to go on here


If you make enough money to live on, but spend it all, then technically I guess you could say you're poor. If you use your money wisely (being thrifty), that can prevent you from being poor. Example: A big screen TV and satellite hookup aren't required to sustain life

Without knowing anything about Justice Willett other than the story you linked to, I know practically nothing about Justice Willett, but after reading the story I tend to disagree with your opinion about his upbringing. From your link: "Willett comes from different stock. He was adopted and raised in a double-wide trailer in the small town of Talty, in northeast Texas, by a single mom who scratched together a living waiting tables. His adopted father died when he was 6..."

Maybe not as far from poor as you implied?

WK------

I am shocked, SHOCKED! I tell you. You infer that BG would slant his presentation of someone to align with his naked political bias against that person.

Say it ain't so.

Any truth to notion that Ft. Worth is getting ready to move a bunch of Section 8 housing to the edge of Wise County? Sounds like they are floating that idea and backed out of some meeting last night?

"I'm sorry. It's just the voices in my head. I didn't take my medication."

One question, Barry: Were you alone in the elevator when you heard that?

If someone in another vehicle points a gun at you, can you legally wreck them out in self defense. If not, why not?

The voices have told me "who". They haven't told me "when".

Why would you consider wrecking them since they'd probably shoot you as soon as the cars stopped moving.

At least you didn't make a snarky comment about the boy scouts. We'll see if you can refrain longer than a day.

OMG! Tatiana Molchanova has come to life in the person of Kayleigh McEnany. Finally, an American equivalent to my favorite Russian anchor. I must schedule an interview.

With a new framalator and an adjustment of the torsion linkage, plus a little light buffing, I can have that Chevy SUV back on the road in almost new condition.

Question: When you hear multiple voices, can we bill for each one? You could argue that more people are working the case, even if they all are only in your head.

Before long, the Greensheet will have a bigger circulation than the Dallas Morning News.

I read Justice Willett's tweet also; did I miss the part about him tweeting he was poor? He tweeted he was not poor.

Newspapers are basically a report on stuff I see on the internet yesterday.

305 - The story Willett's tweet linked to had the passage I quoted.
