The Campaign For DA

10.09.2017

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • I went to a high school volleyball game on Friday night. Verdict: Highly entertaining.
  • The Vice President took a taxpayer funded trip to an NFL game at your expense so he could do a publicity stunt by walking out when he saw players protest. CNN estimates the cost at close to $200,000. This is the most dishonest administration in history and full of con men. 
  • Ouch: 
  • "Here comes the sun." It always plays a factor in late afternoon games in October at Cowboys Stadium.
  • The Office is famous for the phrase, "That's what she said." I somehow ended up watching Wayne's World this weekend and guess what phrase was used? And they also did a lot of stopping and talking to the camera. (Side note: Do you remember that Ed O'Neill had a brief part in that movie?)
  • College football: (1) OU being beat by Iowa State is amazing. OU was a 30.5 favorite. Yet it is the seventh straight year OU has lost as a double digit favorite. (2) In a seven overtime game a guy's sister ran onto the field when she thought they had won the game. They hadn't. (3) Texas escaped. (4) TCU escaped.
  • Texas county government lawyers are certainly getting crazily aggressive:
  • Powerful cover from the New Yorker
  • What? 
  • Trump's Secretary of Education had some great insight this weekend. Sheesh: Edit: I fell for fake news again - actually satire - but I believe she would actually say this. 
  • For morning news guys: Why has Tim Ryan not been on Fox 4 for over a week?
  • It's been over two years and not one plea or trial in the Waco Biker Cases. 
  • It's going to be 97 degrees today.

Really? Can you quantify that? Can you prove that? Or are you just making up fake news statistics?

Barry, don't worry about a few satirical articles slipping by you. There are things happening right now in real life that we all laughed about as humorous satire in The Onion twenty years ago. Strange times. Real news is fake and fake news is real. Feels like a bad acid trip.

Volleyball: I attended the UT (aka Evil Empire) v. TCU volleyball match yesterday in Ft Worth. I am not a huge fan of either school but I am of really good volleyball. UT is ranked #5 in the nation and it showed. Wow. It was quite the atmosphere. Standing room only with people standing 3 deep on both end lines. UT won in 3 straight but TCU had its moments. You couldn't help but think that every TCU player had wanted to be recruited by UT and they really wanted to show up and play. The place was packed with Jr High girl volleyball teams there to watch the big girls play. It was fun and worth the price of admission. $10.00

923- Pence can't make a point on his free time, but the NFL players can use our dollar and the NFL owners company to make their point?

I think you have that backwards. Pence makes a point using tax dollars. NFL players make a point using their fans' money. If you don't like it, you can stop being an NFL fan. But if you don't like Pence's PR stunt, you can't stop paying taxes.

Skippy, Would you feel worse about Trump if he had loaned billions to solar companies that went bankrupt between one to two years? Or if your attorney general had made it easy for cartels to smuggle guns into Mexico that would have been used to kill two of our own government employees? Or if your other attorney general had met in private with the husband of the person you were supposedly investigating? Or your Sec. of State had denied extra security for an ambassador that had requested it and it ended up in his and three others being massacred? Not to mention all of the millions in hauling your fat ass wife all over the world with her entourage. Fake outrage much?

Powerful cover? To whom? The sole purpose of the New Yorker cover is to push the agenda while emotions are high. Never let a crisis go to waste.

Powerful cover from the New Yorker:

I agree. Charging $8.99 for that piece of crap magazine takes balls.

Skippy, Don't feel bad about falling for fake news again. It happens every day when tens of hundreds of people that watch CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS fall for it.

"Never let a crisis go to waste."

Kind of like how many Republicans send fundraising e-mails after every tragedy, saying the "left wants to take your guns"?

It amazes me that "we need fewer guns in the hands of criminals and crazy people" is somehow 'disgusting', when "hey send me money" is not.

When are you people going to learn, bullshit smells just as bad as horseshit and trying to prove one smells worse just leaves you with a nose full of shit?

Republicans and Democrats are HORRIBLE entities and have certainly, for the last 100 years, not had the public's interest at heart. BOTH parties have only been about THE PARTY!

You people who keep pretending your team/party is better are either delusional or sheep and don't mind the smell of horseshit or bullshit.

Pence wastes over $200K to do an orchestrated Trump stunt on the taxpayer's dime, but 9:19 & 9:23 are upset about private citizens protesting unjustified killings by police. I'm sure there's a "but Obama" in there somewhere.

How's what Pence did relating to this BALL GAME any different than when a sitting president or VP from either party fly into any city, might spend a few hours there, give a couple of 15 minute speeches, shake some hands and hop in plane and away they go to the city. All on our dime. The only difference is this involved a BALL GAME. Same waste of tax payer money.

Any kids' sporting event can be entertaining providing you watch with the right perspective. The age and skill level is a factor, but by HS the talent can be obvious. And the stakes are much higher if you've got kids - or know the kids - involved.
It helps some if your opinion of pro athletes is on the decline, or was low already.


I don't normally comment on your political beliefs, but you've got your head so far up your own hind end over anything Trump, you really wanted to "believe she (DeVos) would actually say this", even though it was ridiculous SNL-type satire. You can't blame it on "fake news"!
