The Campaign For DA

10.06.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • The "Tight Ends" restaurant is using Jim Mora's voice on The Ticket in a commercial. ("Playoffs!?") I'd bet big money they didn't pay him -- and they are obligated to.
  • My new favorite thing to watch is Big Passenger Truck vs. Big Passenger Truck in left hand lane on the highway. One is running 10 mph over the speed limit and the other is on his bumper because he wants to run 15 mph over the speed limit. So they start a road war with each other. 
  • Me to a buddy yesterday at the courthouse: "I think that Aggie/Alabama game will be interesting." Him (paraphrasing): "You're crazy." Then I found out the line was 27.
  • You've heard it before: If Sandy Hook didn't cause the change of gun laws, nothing will. 
  • Any sports radio show which commits a segment to an athlete is pure radio anthrax. 
  • I'm working on trying to get off the Internet after 7:00 every evening. 
  • Attorney General Ken Paxton is being investigated for bribery after some guy donated $100,000 to his legal defense fund and then settled a Medicare case with his office. Paxton is either a massive crook or as dumb as a box of rocks. Either way, that's not exactly what we want in an AG. Austin is a clown car.
  • I've learned some of the questions that Wise County District Judge hopefuls went through in their interviews. Example: "If a friend of yours for 30 years showed up and told you he was gay and wanted you to marry him, would you do it?" 
  • Anyone else taken aback by the Six Flags commercial for Halloween? Those are some scary images that suddenly appear. A little kid would be horrified. Heck, I'm horrified. 
  • Speaking of being horrified, this should do it, and I probably should have made it a separate post. A guy was arrested and indicted for capital murder of his daughter and stayed in jail for over a year before the prosecutors figured out the cops got it wrong. It had been set for trial, continued, then dismissed two days later. Good, lord. 
  • I don't follow baseball, but I saw that some 5'6" guy hit three home runs for the Astros yesterday. #RespectTheLittleGuy
  • A very Pro Life Republican Congressman just resigned once it was learned he urged his mistress to have an abortion. That almost sounds like a dark Onion headline, but it is true. 
  • The son of Jay Novacek is suing a fraternity for hazing. And it sounds bad. I have never understood hazing, and I think anyone who engages in it has part of his soul which is evil.

Don't know if Trump is a moron but a group of eminent psychiatrists have published a book describing his numerous mental disorders. Consideration of the 25th amendment should be applied.
(wonder if Wordy would review that book for us?)

How about the "fun" of being behind two big Semis taking up both lanes while one is attempting to pass the other going 1/4 mph faster than the other?

There is no debate necessary really for gun rights. If you are diagnosed with any time of psychological disorder or you are a felon, no gun issued. Period. That may not totally stop it, but for what has happened within the last ten years, it sure would help. If you are not qualified mentally, you should not have a firearm.

Could be a family member realized there was no criminal culpability for a 7 year old and coached him into a confession. It appears that the confession is the sole purpose for the release of the original suspect.

If drug dealers can use sub-10 year olds to run dope, it's not outside the realm of possibility that a man facing a cap-murder charge would do the same.

I have said it a thousand times...Ken Paxton is one of the most corrupt (& stupid) Attorney Generals that we have ever seen in Texas (Morales cant hold a candle to everything KPax has done).
Whats even worse, the coordinated effort to keep him from going to trial has been one of the biggest manipulations of the justice system that we have ever had in this state as well.
Don't be a damn bit surprised that IF he ever goes to trial, if other freedom caucus (Klan) members get implicated.

930 - What for? It's clearly just another partisan group entering politics. Up to now, the American Psychiatric Association had a rule - "...it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement." -- Principles of Medical Ethics with Annotations Especially Applicable to Psychiatry

So these "eminent" psychiatrists ditched their own ethics and professionalism to do armchair analyses of someone they haven't examined in person. Ironically, it's just another sign of the madness that has possessed the Left. Giving any credibility to it is the same.

Re: The Tarrant County DA misdemeanor section ----- the management of that office has ordered that the misdemeanor prosecutors are required to try at least 24 jury trials per year. A quota on trials.

"If you are diagnosed with any time of psychological disorder or you are a felon, no gun issued. Period."

But what happens if they are later diagnosed, and they already have 100 weapons? Nothing.

How about if they go to a gun show? Nothing. They can buy whatever they want.

How about if they buy something from a neighbor? Nothing. There are no background checks from individual sales.

Guy down the street?

Newspaper classified?

You get the point.

We need more regulation. Not total bans, but we need the ability to take some guns away from some people, and to require checks for every sale.

1114 - Well, no. In this forum, I cited the same standard for psychiatrists back in 2008. As with your "eminent psychiatrists," I have an opinion about Obama's mental state -- narcissistic, with a high degree of self-importance (sound familiar?)

The difference in my opinion and your psychiatrists' is that people give mine the proper amount of consideration it deserves -- folks can agree or disagree -- and I don't violate any ethics by presenting mine. But mine is just as valid.

Rage,
Here is the ultimate humor in all of this, your conundrum, if you will.
You are now looking to a person that by all accounts, you and others have referred to as a modern day Hitler and in the least, a fascist, to assist in putting into play, gun registration and heavy handed regulations.
Priceless.
Can't make this s::! up.
What pray tell is the liberal remedy for a fascist dictator? Y'alls words not mine?
Hateful comments and nasty rhetoric?

My wife works for Collin County.... Every year Paxton sends Christmas cards to the various county departments. The messages are odd (to normal people) with kind of creepy " we're all family" vibe to it. It's just odd. Ridiculous

1:15--I'm not sure why partisan politics plays a part in every little thing you post on here. For every comment on any subject, people like you have to interject whatever BS politics you have into even the most common sense argument.

So I will ask you this:

What does partisanship have to do with taking guns away from people who are later diagnosed with a mental illness that could cause them to be a threat? Can you simply say why that would be a bad thing, without all of your whataboutism and inane political views?

I know I'm trying to reason with an idiot here, but I'm curious to see what simple argument can be had for allowing the mentally insane to continue to own guns.

We already knew your ignorance (indifference) of baseball, which basically disqualifies your running commentary on the Rangers. But when you describe Jose Altuve, the face of the Astros' franchise, as "some 5'6" guy", we would have figured it out

So if I may...

The Mandalay Bay hotel is a "gun free zone" meaning weapons, specifically guns of any type are strictly prohibited on the premises...

Automatic weapons are illegal.

Knocking the window out of the hotel is illegal.

Shooting a firearm inside the city limits is illegal.

Murder is illegal.

This man had no history of any problems or mental illness.

So please tell me what gun control, other than outright ban (which would never work because they could not confiscate all the guns already in the US) would have prevented this?

Because I'm sure whatever Laws Congress could think up, would be the one he would be eager to have followed?

Concerning the father accused of killing his child and the son admitted to it a year later...Tarrant is notorious for convicting innocent people. Their investigators, DA's and court appointed lawyers are horrible. Lot of people in jail a long time who are innocent.

Please, feel free to cite examples. When you can't, kindly apologize.

This guy who got his case dismissed ----- he wasn't convicted, at least. Chances are, the craptown pd who investigated didn't do a great job and when the prosecutor got the case, is lingered before getting serious attention. Not good. Bad. Really bad and inexcusable, but at least he wasn't convicted.
