The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • The Mooch just became a father and now he wants a paternity test. Love that man.
  • I loved the comment which said I finished last in my class at Baylor Law School. If "cum laude" means "last", then you are right. 
  • Always view Trump through these lenses: (1) He wants to be loved by the masses. Not by his wife. Not by his kids. But by the masses. (2) He wants to be perceived as a "winner". Once you understand that, you will understand every action he makes.
  • Vince Young is the greatest college football player I've ever seen and that game may be the greatest college game I've ever seen. (Nevertheless, I still hate the Evil Empire.)
  • Serious question: If you knew a guy who was a great high school football kicker and a major college program had expressed concerns about its kicker, how do you go about getting your (kicking) foot in the door?
  • Speaking of the Empire, this was very confusing yesterday: 
  • Once we have a new district judge, I'm going to fire off a hot opinion over what I've seen over the last couple of months. 
  • Sean Hannity's diverse panel on racism. It's like the cast of  blonde Mean Girls with a dumb guy thrown in: 
  • The Tarrant County DA deleted her tweet where she misspelled "scholarship." She has to hate me. 
  • The saddest think about Sheriff Clarke resigning (and "getting the Heisman" when he went for a White House job) is that we never again get to see him in uniform with his fake medals. 
  • My most genius idea for jury selection. Elimiate voir dire. Instead, have all of them show up for two hours the night before trial with an open bar and free food. Tell them they will be recorded but they are free to say and interact with others however they wish. 
  • My normal routine of "It's Friday. Let's get out of here" won't happen because I'm on one of my football trips. But this time I took Mrs. LL with me.  She may divorce me by Monday. 
  • On the plane here I sat by a lady who looked like Queen Latifah.   I fell asleep and then, as I was waking up, put my hands around her arm because I forgot Mrs. LL was not sitting to my right instead of my left. The lady, who was more than sweet, later said to Mrs. LL, "I was about ready to declare him my airplane husband."

What POTUS wasn't that way? Answer me that.

You putting your arms around a stranger on an airplane is a high school move.

It's the 'saddest think' ever.

Jury section idea - yeah, because the biggest things people complain about regarding jury duty is that it doesn't take long enough and they don't get to spend enough time talking to the strangers that are stuck there with them.

It's odd that you post a disparaging comment about Sheriff Clarke, but accompany it with a quote that is smart, insightful, and shows him in a good light.

Barry, you idiot. Charlie Strong coaches at USF...the mascot is the bull. You want to guess what the handle signal is at USF?

You live under a rock you liberal hippy.

MAGA.

Kicking conundrum:

I had a much longer explanation for this, but that sums it up rather well

On the Mack Brown Charlie Strong picture, USF's mascot is the Bulls. Maybe they incorporate the "horns" symbol also.

THEIR HIGH SCHOOL NEEDS TO STOP USING A CREATURE THAT KILLS MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AS THEIR MASCOT. KILL THE SKEETERS!!!

Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

Skippy has to hate me!

The Tarrant DA has a staffer that handles PR and communications. Like Cruz, I seriously doubt she runs her own Twitter account and has no clue who you are.

His "fake medals" were recognition items from other agencies. Usually these are given when you've done something beyond what you have to do. It is a fairly common item to be passed between different LE organizations.

When will libs get off this fake story?

A person could technically be last in their class and still graduate Cum Laude. The distinction only means your GPA was 3.5-3.7. There is the chance that every classmate was higher.

Just waiting for some butt hurt millennial to WHINE and those higher ed distinctions to be banned. Someone will probably get their feelings hurt over those honors. You know, like the high schools who are now doing away with class rank. Good grief.

Lol Well that says a lot about your class doesn't it. Clearly Cum Laude means something since you're only a Wise County Defense Attorney. Thanks for acknowledging my comment without publishing it. Your mother should be proud.

Not true 10:13. Law school professors must distribute the grades according to a set point which I believe was a 3.0 when I was in school. That means for every A there must be a C given. Ultimately it means there are lots of B grades unless you earn an A or are lazy and get the C or lower. Skippy is plenty book smart, but he is like all liberals and lets feelings interfere with his logic and critical thought in the real world.

The open bar jury selection idea is genius

10:13

You may want to keep checking your facts.

The generally accepted standard not only incorporates GPA, it also includes class ranking.

Cum Laude is generally considered to be the top 25%.

Larger institutions, like UNT, use the 3.5 GPA to help simplify the process of determining individual honors. My son graduated with 3.47 GPA from UNT and just missed cum laude honors.

This statement...

"The distinction only means your GPA was 3.5-3.7. There is the chance that every classmate was higher."

If that were true, that institution would lose their accreditation very quickly.

0942 and 1013 beat me to the punch in both instances.

The medals weren't fake in that they weren't official military decorations (that was the source of the faux outrage/controversy). Democrats coudln't attack him for being black, less they show their colors. That whole fake medal thing was just a lazy attemt at subterfuge. People who actually cared asked questions and were talking about it long before the cable news channels and decided it was a non issue in short order.

and graduation rank only matters until you get your first job. After that it's what you do with your life that counts. Of course where you go to school counts more. 3 out of the last 4 came from Ivy League schools. President Trump is an outlier (in many respects), but it's not like he was slumming it either.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't LBJ and Reagan the only ones who went to, what I would say, regular colleges (during this century and the last)? Even Carter was a graduate of the Naval Acadamy. Peanut farmer jokes aside, that commands a certain amount of respect from the Veteran. Nixon was no slouch. (I cheated and did a google - Truman didn't go to college)...

The HS kid's coach should be sending scouting films on his behalf to the coaches at the "major college program" A proactive kid can make a trip and just start putting them through the uprights and with the hope that someone notices.

So, let me get this straight . . . . You say "Trump wants to be loved by the masses. Not by his wife. Not by his kids. But by the masses." Not by his wife or his kids???? You are a fucking idiot.


Then you talk about Sean Hannity's diverse panel - only to describe them by their hair color. It's sad that you only see color and not their character, or actually LISTEN to what they say. Thank God no one hires you as their lawyer based on your looks and stature. Hell, you'd NEVER get hired.

Yes, military and para-military (like LEO organizations) have traditionally worn rank, insignia, medals, awards, and badges. Sometimes it is over-powering and pretentious like North Korean Generals and Sheriff Clarke. I always liked the FFA approach to this issue. No matter how many honors, medals, etc you received, it was considered to be good decorum to only wear three out of the many. They would be 1. Your highest degree earned 2. Your highest office elected 3. Your highest honor won. Elegant, understated, modest, and wholly appropriate.

We figured those were the lenses that jaded your thinking, Barry. Thanks for the confirmation. In reality, Trump doesn't care what you, me and the remainder of the masses think at all...and that is why he is the best man for the job! Also, he considers those that think themselves above others intellectually and materially just part of the masses and that is why he is hated....and we love him!!!

The Mooch is very smart or has some great advice ! Everyone should DNA their children !Don't really keep one from paying child support > Might keep someone from marrying their half brother / sister later in life ! Small towns are worse due to the smaller gene pool !

You're sure throwing the word "hate" around a lot today. Perhaps knowing Mrs. LL is going with you on your annual FB weekend romp has lessened the anticipation and excitement. No charge.
