The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • There's a stock market crash coming and a real estate crash coming. It's cyclical. It always happens. I've seen two real estate crashes in my lifetime already. Off the top of my head, one was around 1991 and the other around 2004 or so. They last for an average of seven years before property values return to where they were. 
  • The "Drews" mentioned below is the SWAT team leader involved in the Waco Twin Peaks Biker case. It might be a system by system basis, but if what he said is generally true, there is about to be a big shakeup in criminal cases. (Witherspoon is a reporter covering the trial.)
  • Did Trump provide proof yesterday that he didn't say what the Congressman claims he did say to the widow of the Green Beret? No. 
  • The U.S. Senate approved Newt Gringich's (third) wife as Ambassador to the Vatican. (Newt left his wife dying of cancer for this woman.) You simply can't make this stuff up. The party of Family Values.
  • On the radio the other day I heard a Radney Foster reference. Haven't thought about him in years. But I've always loved his song Nobody Wins. The lyrics are so true. Every  marriage counselor should make his clients print out the lyrics and make the couple read them to each other and talk about it. 
  • Very obscure music trivia: At the end of the song you hear a woman's voice for just a few seconds. It's Trisha Yearwood. Edit: A commentor says it is Mary Chapin-Carpenter. He is right. I stand corrected. 
  • There's a commercial on the radio that for some reason references Lawn Darts. I remember seeing a commercial for them when I was a kid. The next time I was reminded of them was in a Torts class in law school. Parents let there kids play with them in the 1970s. What could go wrong?
  • A 100 year old time capsule buried at Love Field will be opened today. I'm very interested if it survived. 
  • I proclaim this National Irony Week:
  • I need to start a "Favorite Comment From Yesterday's Random Thoughts" bullet point. Below is my favorite from yesterday.  Like I've said, I got the smartest and dumbest readers in the world. And there is no way he/she will understand why they fall in the latter category after they read this. 
  • The NFL draft will be held at Cowboys Stadium. Heck, I might go watch the first ten picks if I don't have to pay. I'm not paying for parking, and I'm not paying for admission. That means I probably won't go. 
  • I turned over to WBAP this morning and the boys were ranting about something Jane Fonda said. Hal Jay said he would never forgive her for the photograph in a war "that left 50,000 men dead for no reason whatsoever." Gold. 
  • When I click on any Messenger link this morning I get a 404 error. Uh, oh. Edit; Seems to be fixed by 8:45.
  • I find it very odd that the security guard in the Las Vegas mass shooting case who was allegedly shot first decided to give his first interview on Ellen. Everyone wants to be famous.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

The democrat water carrying media will not report this but The Hill broke the story yesterday of the FBI undercover agent that was paying bribes to the Clintons, Obammy's and Eric Holder from the Russians. Yet we are spending Kenneth Starr millions on a goose chase to prove Trump didn't collude with the Russians.

This is every Trump voter, right here.

I also love: "Out troops fought and died so you'd have the right to take a knee," while somehow saying they should not be permitted to take a knee.

Their political ignorance is matched only by their religious hypocrisy.

Hey Skippy, aren't you going to toot Trump's horn on the news of the jobless claims being the lowest since 1973? I bet you would have if it had come from Obammy's Labor Dept. And you would have also given a shout out to Wordkyle. Am I right?

Any of you liberal weenies think it's a little strange that the rhinestone cowboy hat wearing congresswoman, Maxine Watters wannabe just happened to be in the limousine with the widow of the Army ranger when Trump called to offer his condolences? And how did she know what Trump was saying to the widow? Did the widow have the gall to put a private conversation on speaker phone?

While 'Nobody Wins' is a true statement, the lyrics are very shallow. There are times when counseling before a divorce is granted should be mandated, but if the hell is being beaten out of you and/or the kids, it definitely matters 'who's wrong or right'. 'I just want to hold you tight' is a statement many abusers make after the most recent violent episode.

Some of the police in-car video systems have the ability to "cache" video when the device is not in record mode. It doesn't mean they can retrieve videos if the device was powered off but it can mean that a powered on recorder that is NOT in record mode may be collecting video. Generally this "cache" only lasts a short time before it is written over. And it almost never includes audio.
You've probably seen police video where the 1st 30 or 60 seconds are without audio. This is why. When the officer turns on the recorder (usually by activating their lights on the patrol car) the system will include this "pre-event" that it gathered from the "cache". It allows you to see what the officer observed before he activated his lights.
ohhhh - and not all systems are built this way.

I'm glad you called my comment out from yesterday. I was simply gigging you for over explaining something we all know about the expression "pound the rock". You gave a silly and literal explanation like you were talking to children. I responded with obvious sarcasm that only your more intelligent readers would or even could pick up on. This is beyond funny to me because my sarcasm had the opposite effect on you!!! Somehow it challenged you enough emotionally you actually went so far as you use your platform to respond to it directly. You were the one being laughed at I can assure You! You either knew that, responded the way you did out of angst otherwise you are the one who falls into the "latter" catagory!

Still chuckling that you thought "pound the rock" was so profound you had to break it down for us simpletons😂😂😂 Pop uses uses it for a reason!

I don't understand the castigation of the entire Republican party (in sarcastic form) as the party of family values, as a result of the actions of one man. Generally speaking, the Republican party is against abortion and the Democratic party is for making that legal, against the advancement of a homosexual agenda and the Democratic party is for it, and the Republican party is for legislation that advances religious freedoms, while the Democratic party would seek to retard same. These are all items that, as far as party lines go, identify the Republican party as being in favor of values that promote strong families, and as far as the Democratic party goes, identify that party as being somewhat less concerned with values that support strong families. The fact that one idiot named Newt acted in a way that is inconsistent with the party's generally accepted platform doesn't NOT make the party about that platform any more than one idiot named "Bill" abusing his position of authority over an intern makes the Democratic party the party of sexual assault.

The GOP is bro birth; once the little one slides out who gives a shit what happens to them.

The GOP is against equal rights for everyone (gay people), which in no way equates to "family values". Stop trying to legislate morality.

The GOP wants to advance religious freedoms as much as Al Queda or ISIS does. You assholes aren't against a theocracy so long as it's your own brand of theocracy. That's it. I know, it might FEEL like an attack on Christianity when other groups receive the same rights, but I'm also sure there were plenty of southerners in the 60's that said the same thing about being white... as well as some dudes that wear bed sheets say today.

We could talk about Newt, Mark Sanford back in 2011, our current president's string of sexual assault allegations that always go away, or the dude that was in the news last week for asking his mistress to get an abortion, even though he was "pro-life". And that's just off the top of my head without google. The difference is democrats don't wrap themselves in the Bible and claim they're morally superior. I'll give them credit there. The GOP is just full of hypocritical douche bags that are still smarter than their constituents because they know they could murder puppies and live stream it and so long as they claimed freedom Jesus, no gays, and no abortions you morons will continue pulling the lever for them.

Sam Brows, SWD has already schooled you plenty, but:

"I don't understand the castigation of the entire Republican party (in sarcastic form) as the party of family values, as a result of the actions of one man."

That's not at all what is happening. It's the constant hypocrisy of saying that the GOP is the party of family values, when Republican after Republican lives their life differently. The recent Republican insisting his mistress have an abortion is a recent example, and crosses both the marriage and abortion lines. Saying it's all about Gingrich is stupid. He gets brought up when he puts himself out there. That's it.


"Generally speaking, the Republican party is against abortion and the Democratic party is for making that legal"

Except when they want it for themselves, as mentioned. And most Republicans want abortion to be legal as well. Just not the GOP platform, which is constantly out of touch with its membership.

"against the advancement of a homosexual agenda and the Democratic party is for it"

WTF is the homosexual agenda? Gay people wanting the same rights? That's not an agenda, dipshit. They have the same Constitution you and I do.

"and the Republican party is for legislation that advances religious freedoms, while the Democratic party would seek to retard same"

Shiiiit. The right to refuse service because you think two dudes are going to get married is not religious freedom. It's part of the modern attempt to cloak modern racism, bigotry, and segregation behind religion. You don't have a religious freedom not to marry two people that are interracial, or gay, or anything else. That bullshit justification has been repeatedly struck down by even conservative courts.

The notion that somehow Jesus would be OK with telling people they can't get married because they're different colors or even the same gender is absurd. In no way does the Gospel justify racism and bigotry of any type.

Strange times. Churchy folks (the evangelistic Christian type) have pushed laws in several states to give them the right to reject state regulations and edicts if it conflicts with their religious beliefs. Now the church folks and the State of Missouri have had that flipped on them. The Show Me people passed an abortion restricting law that involved pregnant women seeking a termination being forced to read a pamphlet, see an ultrasound, listen to a possible heartbeat, and wait seventy-two hours. The Satanic Temple challenged that law on the religious discrimination grounds of being in conflict with their beliefs of freedom of action. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously over-turned a lower court rejection and forwarded it to the Missouri Supreme Court. Now the good Christian folk are screaming that is not what they meant when they wanted a religious freedom law. Freedom for them, but not everybody else. Should be good theater when it comes to a head.

I used to be pro death penalty, but then I thought about it. What's actually a worse punishment for the perpetrator: life in prison without parole, or the sweet release that death brings? Not to mention it costs 7x as much to kill an inmate due to the endless appeals we see (which are all taxpayer funded, BTW) compared to just keeping them in prison for life.

Also, I don't agree with abortion. I think it's wrong. I've said that before. I also understand that it's an unfortunate side effect of society. Unwanted pregnancies happen. A lot of them due to abstinence only education, but I digress. Yeah, I'd absolutely love to see some accountabity from those that demand public funding of abortions whenever they want them. It's really just that I don't see accountability happening, so I've given up. It doesn't change the fact that the GOP tries to gut spending on social programs that would benefit those "innocent babies" every chance they get. Oh, and your comment about 'them killing a family of 5" only proves my point about the unfortunate necessity of abortions: since Roe v. Wade violent crime in America has plummeted. Legal abortion is arguably the largest reason, along with banning leaded gasoline, if you're interested in some sociological studies. So save me your bullshit morality.

And really, about the only social program I'm in favor of is a single payer healthcare system. The fact of the matter is the average person on food stamps or other assistance uses them for 8 months. These stories you hear of welfare queens with 6 kids from 6 dads are just there to keep suckers like you voting for the GOP. If it means less than 0.1% of people abuse the system so that the other 99.9% of my countrymen don't starve or die from lack of medical care, sign my ass up. And I say that as someone that pays more in taxes than most.

You can try to justify being a piece of shit all you want, but at the end of the day, you are who you are. Nothing more than a selfish, hypocritical, theocratic piece of shit.

So, no, you did a piss poor job of "sumping" it up.

SWD,
a civil discourse is one which does not include name-calling and profanity. i'm not sure if my own opinion resulted in your de-evolution towards both, or if that is merely typical for your posts, but in any event, I personally find it difficult to get behind a party that supports legal available genocide. i'm at a loss, personally to identify how exactly Jesus would respond to homosexuals. I have a daughter that aspires to be my son, so I deal personally with the issue on a regular basis and try my best to do so out of love, not condemnation; however, I also know that He told the harlot He saved from a group of stone happy elders to "go and sin no more". Finally, it has been a long, long time since anyone "expected the Spanish Inquisition" (established in 1478), and at that time we didn't have a United States Constitution, so it's difficult to tell how what sort of reaction our Founding Fathers would have had towards a Catholic Church that terrorized citizens. But your point about giving ISIS followers the same religious freedoms as, say Methodists, is an exercise in stupidity. ISIS very publicly espouses a desire to convert or kill, that's generally the whole idea behind a jihad. Learn to play well with others, or, be happy being ignored.

1:26, nope, not a Satanist. Just a believer in the New Testament who appreciates watching churchy hypocrites caught up in making us all follow their particular scriptural interpretations through the Laws of Man get slammed by reality. Law for one is the law for all. If I am in the cake baking business, I should sell to all who walk through my door. Wouldn't lose any sleep if they took my wonderful cake, smeared it across their naked bodies while baying at the moon at midnight. If you hate a particular group (gays, Muslims, blacks, jews, Lutherans, lawyers, etc) so much, then head to a cabin in the high country where you don't have to live among Polite Society. The Good Lord will still hear your prayers way out in the sticks because He is a forgiving Lord who even receives the prayers of fools. Folks trying to remake secular society into a carbon copy of their unique faith isn't what most of us look for in this America. Praise Jesus!

You can attempt the "intellectual high road", saying I shouldn't swear, but I say fuck that. It merely reinforces that you don't have a counter to my point, philosophically or relatively, to stand on. You can't argue my points, so you deflect to ad hominems and say "he's mean!". Words are words, man. They carry the weight you give them. That's what kills me about democrats. They cry about being offended over, quite literally, anything. You're better than them, right? I was raised believing the GOP was better than the tantrums I see on this blog every day. Act like it and maybe your party won't be dead in 30 years.

I don't have children. So I won't pretend to understand your struggle, but I'll say this: if the New Testamemt you're reading is the same as mine, the ultimate answer is love. Christ loved all. UNCONDITIONALLY. Full. Stop.

It's interesting you quote the story of Christ and the harlot. Because, best I can tell, the GOP can claim the Old Testament, but the left gets to claim the New.

Let go of the GOP. Stop the game of "your team vs my team". It makes the hyprocisy so much easier to spot. Question your beliefs on a daily basis. If you can't challenge your ideals and have them stand up to scrutiny, how sound are they, really?
