The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Once again proving I'm a legal genius, I told you the TRO on the Robert E. Lee statue would be dissolved by the federal judge in Dallas. It was. I don't know why it was even granted in the first place. 
  • The statue controversy is not about "owning slaves", it is about being a leader of an insurrection against the United States of America. 
  • Former Ranger Derek Holland has been released by the White Sox. I've thought he was moron ever since he did his (horrible) Harry Caray impersonation in the dugout during a World Series game. Any team can assume his contract if they are willing to pay to White Sox $1. Yep, $1. There will be no takers.
  • If you want to see some folks at Winstar almost die, you've got to check out this from BagOfNothing. Good, lord. 
  • On NBC Nightly News they'll bring in Al Roker to talk about the hurricane. Does anyone truly believe Roker knows the first thing about the weather? He's a cartoon character. 
  • There's a crazy story of a Dallas criminal defense lawyer awaiting trial for a sex crime and soliciting clients. The story says he has 650 "active clients" (insane) and that he was witnessed soliciting a new client in the courthouse hallway for $800. 
  • I've never seen so many lawyers about to go bankrupt.  And I've never seen so much incompetence and client indifference in the profession in my life. There is a correlation. 
  • The tweet below is from the wife of the Aggies' head coach. Who would believe there would by anonymous racist cowards in Texas? Oh, wait. Let me check the comments. 
  • Did you know in Texas you have the right to recuse a visiting judge if you are a party in a civil case (about money) but don't have that right in a criminal case (about freedom)? Equal Protection Clause, anyone?
  • Ever since Fox 4's Dan Godwin has changed his hair style, all I see is Michael McKean once he comes on the screen. 
    Dan or Michael?
  • There was an 8.1 earthquake in Mexico last night. Sheesh. Hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes. And "wars and rumors of war."
  • All I see is a guy who couldn't figure out how to put flip flops in a backpack.
  • See that headline below of "Made in Russia"? That is what is meant by "hacking" which is not the appropriate term for what happened. I followed some "lady" on Twitter for months coming up to the election because "she" would post nothing but fake stories about Clinton. (i.e. "Former Clinton Computer Tech Found Murdered!"). It finally dawned on me that she wasn't real. She was a bot.

I THINK YOU DON'T LIKE ROKER BECAUSE OF HIS SKIN COLOR... I THOUGHT YOU HATED BASEBALL... I BECAME PHYSICALLY ILL THIS MORNING WHEN I SAW A BAYLOR BEARS BUMPER STICKER. THE STICKER REMINDED ME OF ALL THE CORRUPTION AND MISCONDUCT AT THE UNIVERSITY. IN MY OPINION, PEOPLE THAT DISPLAY THE BAYLOR EMBLEM ARE IN FAVOR OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, RAPE, MURDER, ILLEGAL DRUG USE. I BELIEVE WE SHOULD REMOVE AND BAN ANY REFERENCE TO THE BAYLOR BEARS

Barry, I have always admired your courage to mostly allow the unvarnished comments of your blog audience, providing a window on current popular thought. Some racial diatribes continue to shock me, but not surprise me. A fellow I grew up with opined one day that there is no true racism in modern America. According to him, it is all a false construct of the liberal press. He would then launch into the latest Breitbart/Alex Jones/Fox News/Rush/what he saw on Facebook falsehood on minorities. Even when I gently pointed out the disconnect between his verbalized racial belief and his hypothesis on American racism (or lack thereof), the light never went off him. Perhaps hate and bigotry are a part of human DNA and will never disappear from this Earth. Sad to imagine.

"The statue controversy in not about "owning slaves", it is about being a leader of an insurrection against the United States of America." - That's about as wrong as anything you've ever posted, BG. I don't know if it's intentional or unintentional. The entire controversy, originating only over the last year or two, is completely about race. The offended parties are not claiming that they're offended because there was an "insurrection" against the nation that they have so much love for.

Being offended is the new source of political power in America, and it's being used to intimidate, bully, and oppress American citizens. 99.9999% of Americans agree that slavery was wrong, and agree that it's good that it ended a century and a half ago. Anyone truly offended about slavery has to look long and hard to find someone they can accuse of opposing them. So they use their "offended" status to impose their desires for peripheral reasons.

The recent forced erasures of history are totally about race.

I'm not an Al Roker fan or apologist, but doesn't he do the same thing most TV weather people do? Take information from the NWS and repeat it. Predicting the path and power of a hurricane really is a guessing game, even for the experts.
He's been doing weather for many years now, and covered many hurricanes. I, for one, do truly believe he knows the first thing about weather.

"... incompetence and client indifference in the (legal) profession..."
And what's the only recourse when a client encounters these incompetent lawyers? Hire another lawyer!

"some folks at Winstar almost die"
A bit of exaggeration there. At most, one of them would have suffered a contusion from the broken end of the golf club shaft. It's not like he flung it full force into the crowd.

I'm not overly offended by the statues, but it's probably not about whether I am offended.

To me, it makes sense that if what you're famous for is murdering other Americans in order to protect the right of people to own other people, maybe we don't keep up a statue of you in the park in 2017.

At the same time, most figures from 150 years ago didn't have the same social values we have now. Views on race, gender, etc. have changed. It would be darn surprising if you could find someone from 1860 with modern positions, wouldn't it.

I get what Barry's saying about the slavery/treason issue. While I think it was in artfully worded (hate to say that to the legal genius), his underlying premise is correct. Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, and Houston were all slave owners, but the first three never stood in rebellion of the United States (I wonder, however, where they might have stood in 1860), and Houston openly argued against secession and was ostracized because of it. No mainstream group is arguing for the removal of their monuments, despite being slave owners.

Lee, however, is part of the white washing of Confederate history. Although to people like Wordkyle removing a monument that wasn't placed until decades after after reconstruction is somehow "erasing" history, not one person has argued that the Civil War should not be taught in school, or written about, nor has anyone said that it should be removed from our collective consciousness. In fact, those most opposed to these statues simply want us to learn from that history--the truth of it, not the Lost Cause revisionism.

But people like Wordkyle won't stand up and call things what they are on the race issue--mostly because he shares their racism. He's smart enough to know better than to openly state his opinions in public, but that still leaves him hiding in the corner on race. And if you won't stand for anything, you'll fall for everything, and he has whole-heartedly fallen for the false narrative that the civil war wasn't about slavery, that Lee was a kindly old genius who simply loved his state and was nice to the slaves he owned, and that the people wanting the monuments to insurrection removed don't also want us to remember that the insurrection occurred at all.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Just like Neo-Nazis are complaining that they're getting beaten up and should not be because they're just expressing their opinion (that minorities should not exist, all the while preparing for violence on their own terms), Wordkyle refuses to admit that the only people white-washing history are those who continue to fall of the Lost Cause narrative.

People are entitled to their opinion. Other people are entitled to dismiss them summarily because their opinion is so patently incorrect. Wordkyle's claims above fall into that category of opinions so far from reality that they are not worthy of debate. He is simply wrong. And in future generations, once his version is bred out of society through continued education, we will all sit back and shake our heads at how absurd their revisionism was, and be grateful that, once again, the racists were on the wrong side of history.

Also--there are some times when you cannot object to a visiting judge in a civil case. The rules are weird, but from what I remember, if the visiting judge is retired, and never lost an election, you cannot object. If they are one of the many former-judges living off the gov't teat as visiting judges after losing an election, then you cannot object. And if the judge was assigned to that bench for an interim period by the administrative judge of the judicial region, then you cannot object no matter what.

I'm fuzzy on the details, but I think that sums it up.

I like Barry's equal protection argument. From now on, everyone who wants to file a civil lawsuit should have to get it vetted through some form of grand jury type of system in order that civil defendants have equal protection under the laws to that of criminal defendants.

I have never understood anyone being "offended".
If you are "offended" then one of two pretenses has taken place--

Either what the person says is true, therefore you need to suck it up and deal with it, OR
the person has said something half true or having no basis in truth, therefore the person that is offended should have the intellectual fortitude to disregard it or laugh it off.

I am of the Buffalo Humper lineage and all the firewater jokes, squaw references, and Redskin Banners don't bother me one whit.
Why is everyone so serious?
Because people use "offenses" as political currency or tools to further their own selfish agendas.

Can we equate slavery to abortion? Will history treat the Planned Parenthood supporters on the same level as former slaveholders.

When abortion on demand is finally outlawed (it will be a struggle like ending slavery), will all the pro-choice supporters be condemned. You think you are standing for a moral support, but actually, you are just killing unwanted babies.

Check out the tours of the former prison camps.

No statue required.

The other difference is the US was country, then split into 2 parts, there was a huge war, one side won and the country was back to being 1(sort of, google carpetbaggers)

In Germany, the country did not have a civil war, they converted from one government to another. Things built up to WW II, then there was WW II, then Germany(Italy, Japan) went back to a different leadership model.

None of those 3 countries had a civil war, like we did.
