The Campaign For DA

10.27.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • Tarrrant County DA Sharen Wilson tweets during the day for her re-election campaign when she should be working. I have never understood how public employees can get away with that.
  • Traveling is a beating.
  • I petted a service dog yesterday (a real one) of an elderly man. It was cute. Some small thing that never barked, looked at you with dumb eyes, and had his mouth open the whole time. The guy, who was in a wheelchair, said "I make friends because of him." And as I walked away he said, "Thank you."
  • Thousands of pages of JFK files were released yesterday but Trump is keeping some of them secret for another 180 days. What I've heard about them so far is fascinating. And there are 180 documents being held back for 180 days because of security reasons. Oh, my. 
  • What did he mean by "our" heritage?
  • What a vicious and illegal hit in last night's NFL game. The sport of football will not survive. 
  • I remember very little about every college course I took. For example, I took an accounting course, got an A, and really the only thing I remember is that Equity = Assets - Liabilities. (And that was taught on the first day of class.) I think the real value of college is hanging out with a diverse group of people, figuring out who are smart and who are dumb, and then hanging out with the smart people.
  • Did I mention that long time employee Tammy Sosa is running for Justice of the Peace 2?
  • I'm surprised that the Bridgeport City Council didn't back COMPLETELY down from their annexation invasion. If I'm a public official, I'd put it on the back burner until the heat dies down and then try again. (Below is stolen from the Bridgeport Index. Everyone go buy an Index. Don't sue me!)

  • For some reason, if I stay in any hotel I have a war with ice machines. They used to be on every floor but no longer. Last night I went to one on my floor, and much to my great excitement, found one. Yet,  "Out of Order" it said. Cue the Curb Your Enthusiasm music. It's not my  personality, and I would never do it, but I wanted to be Larry David and go down to the front desk and say, "Uh ....(pause) ...can we talk about the ice machine?"
  • Hey, you one Dennis Prager fan out there who reads the blog: Yesterday he said patting a woman's behind was not sexual assault and "there are some things that men just do." Incredible. And Mark Davis took issue with the term "sexual assault." Look, this isn't hard. "Assault" is defined, even under the Texas Penal Code, as "offensive touching." And if you do it for personal gratification, it is "sexual".  Sure, it's not a crime of "Sexual Assault" under any Penal Code but it's just an accurate description of men preying on women.  The old white men in this world are amazing. 
  • Speaking of, you have to read what a broadcaster said during a Cleburne, Texas high school football game.

I don't get it on the hit. Some guy took a few million dollars to run around with a football while other guys try to violently prevent him from doing just that. I don't give a damn how hard anybody hits anybody else out there. Nobody is there by force and they are all well-compensated for their stupidity

In your world, are "old white men" the only group capable of ignorance, racism, and objectionable behavior? If you think so, then we need to have a talk. (As in, "seen any good rap videos lately?")

LL, Bridgeport was like many other cities trying to beat a 12/1/17 deadline per a new Texas law for involuntary annexations of contiguous areas of land. After December 1st, the cities won't be able to involuntarily annex those areas, so the landowners will be able protest and stop the annexations post 12/1. Bridgeport should have gone forward with the annexation (even though making some folks unhappy) because now the ability is lost without landowner consent. So, the "majority" of the town was sacrificed for the "few" in the contiguous area.

Well, thank you very much!
Why is it that you call them "old" in this bullet point, presumably in reference to George HW Bush (also in a wheelchair), but your earlier comment about the service dog says the man is "elderly".

Of course they don't have a monopoly on it. What they do have a monopoly on, however, is power and the ability to affect change. To say otherwise is ignorance at best, disingenuous at worst.

Mr. Green, I want to start by saying I love your blog. I do not agree with a lot of your views, but I absolutely respect your right to have them as well as your honesty about your views, however, I have a hard time distinguishing between some old white guys distorted views on females, sexual harassment etc., and your continuous posting of images of other peoples daughters, wives, sisters, and girlfriends. I feel it is time for us all to be God honoring in the way we view women. Will we continue on the same old road we are on, or steer a new course. Let us ALL start now.

The city council was elected to represent the interests of its citizens and totally failed them on this issue. The people protesting the annexation clearly don't give a damn about the town so why should the council listen to anything they have to say. If Bridgeport has nothing to offer them, why then do they choose to live so close?

The rape comment by the editor has to be one of the most appalling things I have ever seen anyone put in print but considering the source, does not surprise me. He has opined before in the same column he longs for the days when politicians just kissed babies and patted the women on the butt. You just can't make this stuff up.

I thought we were all just different shades of brown, but some people out there think they're "black" and shout about it all the time.

Sounds like a taxpayer should turn the individual in to the Texas Ethics commission for violations of the State Ethics Law. It is not legal/ethical for a public employee to work a private election on state, county, or city time.

Trump meant what he said..."Our Heritage"...meaning our White Heritage. It is an overused talking point when racists try to justify having statues of treasonous individuals who were fighting for the right to own and beat the shit out of other human beings. If you notice, in every war that is fought around the world, the first thing that happens after a regime change is that all of the statues come down (please see Saddam Hussein).

COMPLETELY AGREE ABOUT COLLEGE - When I was in college, diversity was simply a word thrown around campus. I did not appreciate what that diversity until long after I graduated. It gave me the ability to learn about others and that everyone was not like me. From that diversity, I learned acceptance and understanding. That diversity taught me the most important thing that I learned in college, how to work and live in everyday life with those who differ from me. That's what we are lacking in today's society. No longer do we have civilized exchange of ideas - everyone just shouts over each other. And there are so many cultivated and specialized media outlets, you only get your news, YOUR WAY. On social media, you only belong to groups that cater and regurgitate the same views and the same dubious "news" stories. No one wants to challenge their beliefs anymore and those beliefs are challenged, a yelling competition quickly ensues.

At this point, it is a foot race to see who is destroying democracy faster...Citizens United and Facebook.

The old man Cleburne broadcaster needs to never be on the radio again.

There are some bizarre statements here regarding the Bridgeport annexation issue.

"If Bridgeport has nothing to offer them, why then do they choose to live so close?"

What in the world does that even mean? There is a difference between in and near. For example, near the fire provides warmth, in the fire means you burn.

"The 'majority' of the town was sacrificed for the 'few' in the contiguous area."

Well, yes. It's called the rights of the landowner. If you owned a significant amount of land, you might be interested in retaining the rights to that land. Individual rights should matter.

I know nothing about the Bridgeport annexation issue, aside from what I've read here. But if the pro-annex people are making arguments like those above, I see what the problem is.

Sharen Wilson has ruined that office. It's sad to see how bad the morale is. I was at a felony docket on Tuesday and heard a prosecutor saying "whatever, it's a paycheck. We're all hoping someone runs against her."

Sorry to tell you prosecutors, no one is going to run against her.

wordkyle said...

SWD, you talk like a third-rate lawyer. First you make a ridiculous overarching observation: What they do have a monopoly on, however, is power and the ability to affect change. Then you insult anyone who has the audacity to disagree with the statement.

Your statement is easily disproved by simply looking at the social movements of the last, oh, sixty years or so, and then by reading almost any recent headline. Take a look at our culture. What group(s) have had the major social influence on popular music? What group(s) have been most influential in sports? What group(s) have affected the language of the last several decades? What group(s) have the upper hand in controlling the conversation and ideas that are considered acceptable?

I'm not saying I disagree or disapprove of the influence. But if you try to argue that "old white men" are responsible for all of it, then your bias makes you look ignorant at best, disingenuous at worst.

Speaking of the D.A. the great Kelly Hart experiment is going gangbusters. That's two Kelly-Hart connected acquittals last week, two acquittals this week, one guilty of a lesser included (class C), and one that hasn't finished yet. Oh, and one guilty.

1) DFW GODFATHER: DITTO!

2) You uppity lily white radical right wing bible toting citizens enjoy this time. There is a highly intelligent and educated young crop of millennial moderate liberals coming out of college/law school across this nation right now that are what you folks call "minorities"; they intermarry with other races/ethnicitys, they understand the good and bad history of this republic, and they have a positive, chronic sense of civility and morality. In ten years (or less if the radical conservatives sour enough people fast enough) they are going to be in positions of influence where THEY will start dictating policy. They care about the ENTIRE society, about giving a leg up instead of a handout (and they know the difference), the environment, and a nation that is INCLUSIVE (a word foreign to many on here) instead of EXCLUSIVE. Barry has alluded to this generation on several occasions. I spend 8-10 hrs./day, five days a week with them. And they will be a force most on here will be unable to comprehend or accept. Ok. Now you can start the character assassination of me, because a personal attack is all you have. But that light at the end of your political tunnel isn't the sunshine, it's the train that is about run smack dab right over you.

Not sure if you are paying attention but, there are a bunch of whiners in Bridgeport making statements on FB. These fools complain about there not being anything for them in Bridgeport. Nothing would make them happy. One of them, being the King Fool owns business's down town. It was funny to see them threaten and leave then crawl back and open their doors again.

So, the statement is fact.

Anonymous said...

What gets me about the Kelly, Hart situation is that the misdemeanor section loses multiple cases per week and is an embarrassment. They don't need people who know even less than them in there helping them. Also, they have been directed to try a minimum of 24 jury trials per year from DA's office bosses. These civil dandies are taking trials from them.

Every hotel that I've stayed in for the past 6 or 7 years has had an ice machine on every floor. Those hotels have been Hilton or Marriot brands for the most part.

They had a laundry room on just one floor however.

Get off the internet & go watch the softball or whatever.

Who passed every law that made those changes legal? I'll wait. How was calling someone ignorant an insult? It's literally a measurable point. If you think that's an insult then, I'm shocked you've made it this far in life. Let go of your pearls.

Currently, both houses combine for 104 women, and 102 minorities. Let's say there is no overlap in those numbers (spoiler alert: there is), then that gives a total minority and female representation of 38.5%. And this is the most diverse congress in US history. White men are a total of 31% of the population, but hold, at a minimum, 61.5% of elected position across both houses. Everything I'm seeing says it's closer to 65%.

2/3 of senators up for re-election next year are over 65. So when I say that "old, white men" have a monopoly on power in the this country, it isn't hyperbole. It's a matter of fact that is easily verifiable given a cursory glance at congressional demographics.

So forgive me, but I will gladly call anyone ignorant that disagrees with my comment. If they're insulted by that then they haven't figured out how to use the internet, or maybe just haven't looked around.

I dare you to continue to dangle more and more free stuff to more people at the expense of a shrinking minority of productive citizens and think it will turn out hunky-dory. You're simply wrong about what happens next if we follow modern liberalism through to its bitter end. Why don't we just skip that mistake and go with what we already know works? Because you're younger and smarter and want to feel good about your intentions? Sorry, this old man knows better.

The hit looks bad. But the QB covered the 8 yards to the 10 yard line at twice the speed of the DB, who covered 4 yards from the 6 to the 10 in the same time. And at the last, the DB just piles in, catching the sliding QB. It's not vicious by the DB. Either he jumps out of the way and lets the other team score, or he does the best he can tumbling in for some sort of hit and tackle.

Football will only be dead when people stop watching and attending and buying football stuff.

In other games, QBs fake the slide and then run past the defenders who have pulled up. What the heck is a defender supposed to do in these situations? Oh, and decide in the time it takes to read this last word.

SWD, when you claim that "old white men" hold a monopoly on power, then cite the couple of hundred non-old white men members of the House, you've rebutted your own argument as you made it. I made my point about the real power that changes society now residing with others besides "old white men." You chose to ignore that point so you could trot out a statistic that makes your own argument look silly.

In other words, no rebuttal from me or anyone else was necessary.
