The Campaign For DA

8.23.2017

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Trump's 75 minute rant at an Arizona "rally" last night was bizarre. He sounded scared and unstable. For about 20 minutes, he whined about the media yet praised, by name, Sean Hannity and Fox and Friends. Not to mention that he went after Sen. John McCain, who has brain cancer, in his home state. 
  • For all other media outlets, he said, "They're bad people," and "They don't like our country." It is time to seriously question his mental health.
  • My favorite part was when he said CNN had just discontinued the broadcast of the speech because they couldn't stand it --- while I was watching it on CNN. He makes stuff up, and his 33% base does not care.
  • We've had an odd development in the Tarrant County judiciary. Gov. Abbott appointed an Assistant United States Attorney as a district judge to a civil bench.  Uh, that's a prosecutor to be in charge of a court which doesn't hear criminal cases. 
  • Bridgeport was without water for most of the day on Sunday. 
  • The official Liberally Lean Girl, who is very scantily clad, went after the media on stage for claiming she lip syncs. Then she went into Bonnie Rait's Let's Give Them Something To Talk About. 
  • In one of the most bizarre media stories I've ever heard, ESPN removed broadcaster Robert Lee (get it?) from the University of Virginia's (get it?) home opener. The guy is Asian-American and, it may come as a surprise to ESPN, but he was not the dead leader of the Confederate Army. ESPN tries to explain here
  • The Messenger reports that the former Wise County Democratic Chairman died from suicide via an overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. I would go on my typical rant that there is no way a Medical Examiner could come to the conclusion that it was suicide (as opposed to an accidental overdose) but there were "suicidal-type" messages. 
  • I'd be very nervous to bet on the McGregor/Mayweather fight. Boxing has always been a dirty business. And this is a perfect set up for the fix to be in so that there would be a rematch. 
  • If you aren't familiar with the story of the young wife, Louise Linton, of the Treasury Secretary (a former Goldman Sachs guy) going off on a mother of three on Instagram, do so. After you do it, all of you hard working women out there might want to reconsider what "drain the swamp" means. 
  • And Linton has actually appeared on film as Marie Antoinette

Why do you continue to post pics of nasty girls? They get worse each day! And can you honestly say Trump hasn't done more for this country than Old Obama?

I'm not embarrassed by Trump because people like him exist, but I am embarrassed by evangelicals who continue to support him. Their pastors have largely been silent on most of this. I wouldn't want to join their church......wait I already belong to their church in Decatur!

ESPN is a perfect representation of your people, Barry.

This is what people in this country are sick of. Stupid, politically correct, liberals. Symbolism over substance every time for a liberal.

Did any of you actually read the ESPN statement? They asked the guy if he wanted to switch off the game so that he wouldn't become a meme. He agreed. The statement literally says "This wasn't about offending anyone."

But hey, welcome to Trump's America. It's like the world's worst episode of Whose Line - where the truth doesn't matter and the facts are all made up.

You, like the media, and the other socialists want to and have been reshaping this country that supports the minority; not the majority.
Destroying it whatever the cost to fit your agenda. No one else is allowed to have a say if they are not on the side of media and democrats. That is why so many republicans threw in the towel and became RINOs.

But it never bothered you that the tens of thousands of American politicians before him made up worse lies and did worse things. You are not very sensible.

When Trump takes 1/6 of the citizens personal decision making away; or when Trump sits on his hands to let ISIS form and grow; when Trump does something that really is over the top, then I might start listening to you. Right now, Trump's so called media crimes haven't amounted to jack taco.

BTW, what happened to the Russians and voter fraud. Disappeared??

ESPN should have never asked him. The thought that this was even a potential issue is astounding. Have some f*&+ING common sense and don't create issues where they don't exist.

Barry, have the thinking, responsible folks who formerly commented here moved on leaving alarmingly close minded far alt-right nut cases. I realize there are plenty of those in Wise Co but the thoughtful minority formerly also commented. Trump's hard core 34% are represented on here but the rest of America seem to have moved on. I lived with the ignorance of Wise Co for 13 years. The unFOX world is much better.

Admittedly, Louise Linton's outburst was inappropriate. But why are you, the Daily News and others, pointing out that the woman is a mother of three? Is that supposed to help garner some sympathy for her? That really has nothing to do with the story, other than Ms. Linton stating "your kids look very cute".

Since everybody is playing up the Marie Antoinette angle, it would have been funny if she had said, while boarding the plane "Off with the Feds!", although she probably never said that (paraphrased) either.

I am relation to Tracy Smith. There were phone calls and messages that were suicidal. Someone was supposed to go check on her but did not make it until next morning. Incredibly sad but it was a suicide.

From the Mess Update today:

"DECATUR, ALVORD, NORTHWEST VOLLEYBALL PICK UP WINS — Playing the 3A state runner-up Tuesday night, the Decatur Lady Eagles dropped the first two sets. The Lady Eagles quickly turned the deficit into a signature victory, winning the final three games. Decatur won 19-25, 17-25, 25-22, 25-21, 15-10. Autumn Finney led the Decatur comeback with 17 kills. Callisburg outlasted Boyd in five sets (25-21, 13-25, 25-22, 20-25, 15-10)."

So what was the name of the team Decatur beat?

Tracy was a hero, she fought against injustice and was not part of the family owned and operated mentality of wise county politics.

The Louise Linton story is shocking. She's the worst type of citizen. She was born rich. She married rich. Somehow she thinks her status was earned.

Anonymous said...

So Louise Linton is just supposed to take the poor mother of three bashing her for spending their own money to do something stylish? She didn't start the fight, the poor mother of three did.
So nice to point out that our Treasury Secretary is a former GS executive. Is that good or bad? They're evil investment bankers, but also paid the Clinton's big bucks for speeches the shareholders can't access and supported H heavily in '16.

Barry,

Any idea why Rhome PD and a Wise County Deputy were running code at a high rate of speed on 380 yesterday just to pull into the WC Jail? Happened about 5:20 and that's awful late for fresh Krispy Kremes.

Weird, at about 5 pm yesterday I saw Rhome PD running about 65 on Hitt St in Boyd with lights on. I thought it was very dangerous on that street with all the kids...and why is Rhome always all over Wise? For that matter, why is Wise County sheriffs always in Azle?

Anonymous said...

Rhome PD lives at Dos Chilis. Would YOU want to eat at the Rhome DQ, or taco casa??!! Seriously folks!
No city employee of Rhome wants to spend tax dollars there, when you can eat good in Boyd and on the taxpayers dime. It's been that way for years.

So ESPN was worried about potential memes and people poking fun at a guy because of his name? The same ESPN that promotes "gameday" and encourages fans to gather by the thousands with the most creative, satirical, funny signs possible that make fun of the other team, coaches, conferences, broadcasters, etc.?

Let me get this straight. ESPN is worried that someone might be offended by having a guy named Robert Lee call a football game but didn't think anyone would be offended covering the NFL draft of Michael Sams and him kissing his boyfriend like it was the superbowl or giving Bruce Jenner the ESPY award for putting on a woman's wig and wearing a dress. Own it liberal weenies!
