The Campaign For DA

9.05.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughs


  • Payten Tynsky, 16, of Decatur High was killed in a car wreck yesterday. Upon learning of the news, I suddenly felt stupid for my grief over losing Family Pup #2. I cannot fathom the pain of losing a child. And it reminds you that tomorrow is no guarantee. 
  • I was disturbed by the injuries I saw in college football this weekend. And the NFL is worse. Everyone needs to be aware that Cowboys TE Rico Gathers has been put on Injured Reserve due to a concussion
  • I finally watched Jackie starring Natalie Portman. It was fantastic. She was a nominee for an Academy Award for her role, and I'm not sure she shouldn't have won it. 
  • I also ended up watching Hell or High Water again. It needs to be a training film for every young cop. Focus on the old Texas Ranger. And by that I mean, his attitude and how he treats the public. 
  • I've said this before but I'll say it again, every employer needs to go online and try to figure out if you have an employee who is a self-proclaimed "Proud Boy." And it you are a "Proud Boy", prove it by telling your employer.
  • It looks like the Trump Administration is taking steps to repeal DACA and end the protection for the Dreamers. I'll pay any reporter $100 to ask Trump during a press conference what "DACA" stands for.
  • There are many, many "illegals" who came forward under DACA because our government promised them protection. Now the United States will go back on its word. 
  • He is Darth Vadar. 
  • Football thought from high school to college: Does no one care about special teams? 
  • I somehow managed to stumble on the Longhorn Network and saw Tom Herman's press conference yesterday. He looked horrible. He sounded horrible. He made odd statements and paused for many seconds before answering questions. I'm worried about the guy. And I've got nothing against him. 
  • It looks like we've got a fight for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2, in Wise County. 
  • Mrs. LL won an electric guitar in a raffle. I need your thoughts and prayers.

Rico Gathers has been stashed on injured reserve to avoid the waiver process or getting plucked off of the practice squad. He isn't ready football wise just yet but the Cowboys have seen enough that they didn't want him to slip away, but didn't have room for him on the 53 man roster.

He had a concussion but this was purely a football business move.

I noticed the same thing about Herman while at Houston. His answers when caught by the sideline reporter before halftime were bizarre. He was very unpolished and I didn't think the bright lights of Austin would serve him well. He still sounds unpolished and unprepared.

Breaks my heart when the young ones die in vehicle crashes on our two lane roads. Hard to explain to a child how to remain calm when you accidentally hit that little tiny drop off of a shoulder. It's hard to practice what to do; but, if you remain calm and don't jerk the wheel you can avoid losing control...tell all the kids.

Special teams? Decatur needs to worry about their defense it's sucks. At some point we need to hold this idiot head coach accountable

DACA was a policy implemented unilaterally by Barack Obama. It was an imperial decree to further his personal desire to undermine existing immigration law, not legislation passed by Congress. Any promises made by Barack Obama are his alone to keep. If he wanted to bind future administrations he should have used the system that does that.

I seriously doubt there is even a single "Proud Boy" in all of Wise County and maybe only a few in TX. Go to Wiki and read about it, sounds like a deliberate joke.

The ten tenets of the Proud Boys are: 1) “venerating the housewife,” 2) closing all prisons, 3) arming the citizenry with guns, 4) legalizing drugs, 5) ending welfare, 6) ending immigration, 7) banning censorship, 8) glorifying entrepreneurs, 9) recognizing “the West is the Best,” and 10) “shutting down the government.”[34]

Thank you for the introduction to the Proud Boys, BG! Now I'm looking into joining their movement. The West is the Best!

Good ol' Christian Wordkyle, washing his hands of any moral obligation to help others.

Kids on DACA have a higher rate of college enrollment and employment than white kids born here. And by law, they can have no criminal record, so they have a lower (ZERO) rate of criminal history as well.

So we are deporting some of the best and most productive people in the country, just to make immoral POS's like Wordkyle happy.

Fantastic move.

Trump pardons a known racist that ignored the rule of law, and wants to deport 800,000 of the country's best people.

Makes total sense.

By the way--have you ever seen a Congress that was as obstructionist as the Republican Congress under Obama? Absolutely not. Virtually nothing he proposed would get passed, or even voted on. And to prove their cowardice, they voted to repeal the ACA how many times using their gamesmanship? And couldn't even get the balls to do it once when there was a president in office that would sign it. But Obama should have "used the system" that would have made DACA permanent. Right.

The full extent of the Republican cowardice and hypocrisy is on display these days.

There is no need for feeling "stupid" about grief over a pet. It's real. It's how you feel. You can also feel sad, or even worse, about other things. Like love, I think we're given an unlimited supply of grief for when we need it.

You hate Texas.
You hate ever thing the Evil Empire stands for, especially Tom Herman.
You've said it for years.
And why? Because we have Tom Herman and the (POS) Art Briles is gone.

Go back to the drawing board and try and figure a way to beat Liberty!
At least we lost to a Power 5 opponent.

Perhaps you should go watch Liberty play again this weekend, I hear they are playing at Chico.

I would put the line at Liberty +17. HA!

938 - Disregarding your silly attempt to insult anyone who might disagree with you, my point stands. Obama went around Congress and started a policy all by himself. By that same authority the next President simply says "no." There is no implied "promise" on behalf of the nation, the government, or anyone else other than the individual.

Unwad your panties, Ellie Mae.

Trump is not kicking anyone out. He is merely trying to make Congress step up and do their job. It was not Obama's place to make that deal.

10:27 I have said my peace about the new runner for JP2 claiming she has integrity and her life's dream for JP2. Come on "integrity"? Life's dream? A lot of people know her relation to integrity while at the PD. I was also censored by the Interim City Judge and who is the same owner of this blog.

Barry I do not have any kids just pets so cannot understand the loss of a child but it is ok to mourn a pet my pets are my kids and get treated as such. I agree with you but you should not feel stupid for grieving for your loss.

wordkyle said...

1105 - I'm not sure how much hypocrisy is involved in a statement of fact. Policies unilaterally implemented by one President create no obligation for future administrations. Regardless of the dreams of his acolytes, Obama was not an emperor, and he was not appointed for life. He was simply another Chicago-style politician with delusions of imperial grandeur.

You argue like a third-rate lawyer.

All DACA means to me is that we're sending some illegal beaners back to Meh-hee-co. Where they belong.

And Obama granted clemency on 504 life sentences, but they probably weren't racist.

DOBYNS RUNNING FOR JP 2 – Ashly Coker DoByns of Decatur announced she will run for Precinct 2 justice of the peace in 2018. She will be on the Republican ballot in the March 6 primary election. DoByns, who is administrative assistant to Decatur Police Chief Rex Hoskins, has worked for the department for more than 11 years, and she said running for JP is a “lifelong dream.” “I want to serve the community with respect, integrity and fairness,” she said. “I’m an honest person, and I’m fair.” Read more in the midweek Wise County Messenger on newsstands Wednesday.


What a crock. She needs to look up the definition of words like integrity, honesty...

look deep at this folks.

Obama broke his oath of office when implementing DACA. Now we have a POTUS that actually respects the constitution and rule of law. Trump needs to start undoing more of Obama's EO's and the earlier the better! He also needs to start firing some of the Obama carryovers on his staff as well.... Get on the Trump Train or get the heck out of the way!

9:38, Could you please tell us which laws can be broken without consequences and which ones can't? Why do you have locks on your doors? Trump has a phone and a pen and he won. Get over it.

Ashly will do an amazing job, I'm not sure what we would have done all these years without her. Just because no one at the PD likes you anymore doesn't mean that you have to be ugly and try to make her look bad. We will miss her if she is elected.

Congrats to Mrs. LL! Let's hope she polishes those chops and learns to really swing that AXE!

There is a path to citizenship in America ! Amnesty was possible for a long time but is better for some to live here ,use someone else's SS number ' live and be educated and medically treated on taxpayers dime !When my wife ran the lunch room at Decatur high school a woman from Mexico using another's SS number got pregnant they asked if she was going to get married . No ,she said if I do we will have to pay for the delivery !
We can't do without our Mexicans but if you had a choice would you rather see them go home or see all of the doctors from other countries go home ?

Hey 9:02am...you are stupid. Keep your armchair self at home. DHS offense ran 26 plays ALL game. So, this translates to defense being on the field a lot. Two of the scores were give aways. Either come root for the TEAM and support the coach or stay the hell at home.

"Now the United States will go back on its word."
“no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix what’s broken and build on what works.”
