The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts





  • What jumped out at me during Trump's vague Afghanistan speech last night was how he started taunting Pakistan. He's picking a fight with a nuclear power? Don't we have enough problems? And then he praises their arch-enemy India: 
  • I was yelling at the TV during the speech (much to the confusion of Mrs. LL who was Blue Aproning it in the kitchen like nobody's business). I took great comfort in seeing I wasn't the only one shocked: 
  • For all of Trump's attempt to persuade us that Pakistan and Afghanistan are basically clear and present dangers to the U.S., neither are on Trump's Travel Ban.
  • A crazy story out of Ohio yesterday: A judge is walking to the courthouse, gets shot, returns fire, and then a probation officer fires and kills the would-be assailant. The judge survived. 
  • There is a heck of a mess with the Ken Paxton prosecution. The Collin County D.A. recused the office, and three special prosecutors were named who are billing the county a fortune. The Collin County Commissioners are not happy. Yesterday, "the 5th Court of Appeals in Dallas voided a $205,000 invoice dating back to January 2016, saying state laws and local rules did not allow the three special prosecutors to be paid the $300-an-hour rate they were promised."
  • Ten years ago
  • There were a bunch of Cleveland Browns taking a knee last night during the National Anthem.
  • "In what may be the largest award so far in a lawsuit tying ovarian cancer to talcum powder, a Los Angeles jury on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million in damages to a medical receptionist who developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s trademark Johnson’s Baby Powder on her perineum for decades."  I want to be skeptical, but they are getting hit with multi-million dollar verdicts left and right. Apparently women use the powder on their nether regions quite a bit. 
  • Tell me Tucker Carlson did not say this. (Link).
  • A bunch of Parker County Democrats came in to attend Rep. Kay Granger's rare appearance in Wise County yesterday. They said they had to since she won't have Town Halls.
  • I stumbled upon one of the Naked Gun movies over the weekend. They still hold up. And the comedic genius is that once someone says something nonsensical (which happens about a million times) the other character will pause, cock his head, and looked puzzled for two seconds. And then the conversation fires back up like it never happened. 
  • I'm interested in the eclipse in 2024. DFW will be in the "path of totality".

India gives us zero problems at all. So what if he patted them on the back? You think we're about to be at war with Pakistan like N. Korea? Keep hand wringing my leftist friend.

"A judge is walking to the courthouse, gets shot, returns fire, and then a probation officer fires and kills the would-be assailant. The judge survived. The other guy didn't."

So, you're saying the probation killed the would-be assailant and he didn't survive? Man, nothing gets by you.

Tucker Carlson is worthless. Trump gazing at the sun is stupid but Carlson's comment is ludicrous. How does FOX keep this guy?

Let's see--Pakistan gets independence from India back in the day, and we get another Islamic state. When was the last Hindu terrorist attack? Heck yeah, I can "like" India a WHOLE lot more than Pakistan, Afghanistan, and all the other Islamic "Ikkastans" out there.

I'm sure Trump only glanced at the sun, which is okay. It's funny how some people think that looking at the sun is MORE damaging during an eclipse. Looking at the sun for an extended period of time at ANY time is damaging, you can just stand it more during an eclipse. (Same with cloudy day sunburns--you don't sunburn any faster or worse, you just don't realize you're getting the UV that's gonna burn you, and you can stand it more than feeling the unfiltered sun.)

So--let's call it the way it is. Trump says something bad about a nation and he's accused of "picking a fight". Might be fair to say that. But then--he says something GOOD about a nation and then commentators look around and claim he's "picking a fight" with an enemy state of that nation? Get real. ANY nation on the face of the planet probably has at least one "enemy" nation somewhere, so that accusation could apply to ANYONE at ANYTIME! I CALL BULLS$%^*! :-)

Speaking of stupid statements, why haven't you brought up bonehead Wolf Blitzer from CNN saying the terrorist running over people in Barcelona was a copycat crime from Charlottesville? What an idiot, the muslim terrorists have been doing that sort of terror throughout Europe for quite some time now.

"Hands Up, Don't Shoot" has been replaced by taking a knee as the new protest.

Every time Trump says "my generals", why do I immediately hear Kim Jong-un saying the same thing in my mind. Spooky.

Wish more people would pay attention to the Ken Paxton trial. Whats taking place here is money corrupting the justice system.

Follow me here - Ken Paxton was pushing stocks in a company without any kind of a trading license. Very quickly, he pleads guilty to these charges when the state exchanges commission catches him. He pays a menial fine and gets a slap on the wrist. The whole case was handled so poorly, the federal government takes over the case and files federal fraud charges on Paxton. Remember, these are charges that he already has admitted his guilt. He pleads not guilty to the federal charges (once again, ALREADY ADMITTED GUILT) and has since done everything to keep this case from ever reaching trial. The special prosecutors pay was disputed thru a wealthy Paxton contributor and an injunction was filed. When the trial was going to take place in Colin County, there was a massive campaign to sway an entire county in hopes of reaching potential voters. Obscene amounts of money was spent trying to influence the Colin County judical process and system. It reached the point where the trial was moved to Harris County - where it would be impossible to run another campaign like the one in Colin County. All of these actions to prevent Paxton from going to trial has been coming solely from his own contributors.

Right there, on the front of the DMN, 2 people using aluminum foil on glasses and binoculars to look at the eclipse. Did anyone follow them home? Chances are, they cannot or will not be able to see very well from now on.
