The Campaign For DA

10.18.2017

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts




  • The Ticket runs an ad where a company will give you six football gambling picks for $99. Is this real life?
  • Want to feel old: Baby Jessica was rescued 30 years ago this week.
  • Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called Trump a "soulless coward." Simpleton national radio host Dennis Prager asked, "Does Popovich have a history of deep thinking?" Oh, I don't know. Graduated from the United States Air Force Academy. Has a degree in Soviet Studies. Fluent in Russian. Has military intelligence training. And considered one of the greatest basketball minds of all time with five NBA titles. 
  • One of the greatest moments about Popovich was when I saw him coaching his team during a timeout in the fourth quarter of a game in the playoffs. He kept saying "Pound that rock! Pound that rock!" What he means is that if you hit the same rock over and over again, no matter how hard it is, at some point you'll find its weak spot and it will split. 
  • I don't know who NBA player Gordon Hayward is but apparantly he had an ankle injury last night that was so bad that Twitter put up something I had never seen before: A "graphic warning".  I haven't watched it. There is no way I'm going to watch it. But here's a GIF show the reaction of the other bench when it happened. Yep, it had to be bad. 
  • These Zeke court cases are bizarre. But it took the media about two hours yesterday to figure out the difference between a temporary injunction and permanent injunction. 
  • The Toddler-In-Chief got mad yesterday, and you know its a bad day for him when he does it in the afternoon instead of the morning. If he didn't have Fox News, he would have no friends at all. 
  • What an odd Bridgeport reference in a Rio Grande newspaper: 
  • UNT issued an alert of a scam which should basically should have said: "Don't be a moron."
  • The little kid in Richardson is still missing. Obviously, something is amiss. But it is unbelievable that radio folks like Mark Davis have called her dad a murderer and said he would "retract it" if he was wrong. Buddy, if you are wrong, you're bankrupt. 
  • A Congresswoman says she was present when Trump finally called the widow of one of the four Green Berets killed in Niger and says Trump said, ""he knew what he signed up for ...." Trump denied it this morning and says he has proof. I'm very interested in seeing it. 
  • Former Ranger Ron Washington from back in the day. Good lord.: 
  • I glanced in on the Dodgers/Cubs game last night because Yu Darvish was pitching. (Remember I told you he would be traded to the Dodgers since I'm a Sports Genius?) Anyway, I hadn't even thought about the fact that he has to bat since he's in the National League. That's entertaining. (And he drew a heck of a bases loaded walk in that game.) 
  • If you voted for Trump and have posted a #MeToo post, you need to check yourself.

COULD YOU NOT CROP THAT OLD MARTIAN GAL OUT OF THE PIC?... I FIND YOUR RON WASHINGTON COMMENT RACIST... IS POPOVICH THE RUSSIAN CONNECTION YOU'VE BEEN CLAIMING?... ARE THE JOB NUMBERS AND THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE STILL MADE PUBLIC? YOU HAVEN'T COMMENTED ON THEM IN A WHILE.

Regarding Popovich's impressive intelligence and military credentials, how much of those does it take to call someone a "soulless coward"? Someone with no credentials at all can call those with whom they disagree names like that (e.g., "simpleton.") Popovich is no different from any other partisan Democrat these days. He may be intelligent, but he's caught up in the leftist madness.

Que all the idiots screaming that Pop should stick to something he knows( basketball) and not say anything about politics. Then why are you on here commenting?

Nothing like politicizing sexual assault eh Barry?

By the way #Metoo



But it's a thin line that anyone can claim.....and salacious and behind the force field, so use it and politicize it.

Trump was right: He could shot someone in the streets and his stupid followers will still think he's the best. He has insulted gold star families, POWs, and 80 other groups. He may erode his military support with his actions, inactions, and words this week.

You are a grumpy little sh!t today. What do you mean "Good lord" regarding Wash? Racist much?

You see the world through your cynical eyes.
You're a troubled middle aged man I can tell.

Regarding #metoo.... Now the Hollywood libs are mad about p grabbing within their own ranks? Didn't seem too upset about the internal p grabbing in November.

Odd Bridgeport reference:
The fact that Bridgeport is referenced isn't the oddity. How about this little nugget? "South Texas does not work in silos." What does that even mean? Give us a link to the article so we can make some sense of it.

Scam alert:
"The student provided his card and pin to the driver who withdrew cash."
"...filled out paperwork for the loan and received the cash and gave it to the driver."
The kid's future aint too bright, but the driver should go into politics

"...since I'm a Sports Genius? Anyway, I hadn't even thought about the fact that he has to bat since he's in the National League."
THAT'S entertaining.

Trump insulted a Gold Star family. Not families. True. Obammy insulted "EVERY" POW family when he traded a known traitor thought to be POW for 5 enemy combatants and even had his family to the White House. You weenies make me sick.

Someone with no credentials calls Trump a coward: Wordkyle says "yeah, well, what does he know, he's got no creds."

Someone with creds does it: Wordkyle says "Yeah, well, anyone could say that," and discounts his creds.

Ron Washington pic. I agree...that seems rascist. In pic shown, he was playing for the Indians (1989), and if I recall, most of the US was wearing an Afro. Even my dishwater blonde, board-straight hair was in an Afro!

Repeating “pound that rock” over and over is a great example of deep thought.

Honestly, won't some public spirited billionaire (I'm looking at you Mark Cuban) please buy Twitter and immediately shut it down. That'll muzzle Trump for a while. Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram are too complicated for his feeble mind to operate.

As usual, WordVomitKyle rapes everyones ear holes with his nonsense.
What I think is incredibly ironic is that WordVomit is so damn condescending while he pukes up Moscow talking points defending Trump. He should be embarrassed for being one of the thousands of Americans hoodwinked by social media and 24-hour propaganda networks.

After the poor weak minded, skull full of mush, liberal weenie snowflake victim had given his police report, he was taken to a safe room and offered counseling, hot chocolate, a warm fuzzy blanket, puppy dog and a coloring book and an honorary degree in life lessons 101.

10:06, how quickly you forgot the Gold Star Family from when Trump insulted them during the election. The Kahn family, if your pills have fogged your memory. That is at least 2. Since the phone calls he makes are private, I'm going to guess that there are at least 2-3 more we haven't heard about yet. You voted for him. You knew who he was. When he insults these servicemen, he insults all of our military. You are scum, just like him.

BARRY should site the source of the Popovich comments. No way that is your original thought.

Dennis Prager is not a simpleton.

The whole Zeke fiasco only reaffirms the complete idocracy of the judicial industrial complex.

What have you done that qualifies you to call Dennis Prager names. The body temperature test?

wordkyle said...

1006 - I know you think you scored some sort of points, but you had to make up an imaginary quote by me to do it. Do you have any better examples that involve real life that that can make your argument stronger?

Incidentally, my point was that Popovich's credentials count for nothing when all he's doing is calling names. Add in that Pop is/was a big Obama supporter and the attack reeks of partisan pique. Top it all with the cherry of insanity that's seized control of those on the left for the past year, and you basically have an anon comment in this forum.

And the family of the service member confirmed the Trump insult. For those who defend Trump on this issue, please post your name and address, so I can come and spit in your face.

Didn't they teach you the difference between education and wisdom at Baylor?

Anonymous said...

Barry, a question for you that 99.9% of your blog commenters won't have clue about.

Harvard, Northwestern, Columbia, and several other heavy hitters have announced they will use the GRE as an acceptable alternative admission test to the LSAT. ABA has been mute on the subject, but has announced that they MAY step into the arena in the future to determine appropriateness of tests (read restrict to LSAT only). For now it is up to the law schools.

As a practicing attorney who jumped through the traditional hoops, what is your opinion? Did the LSAT really show your potential as a good law student? Would GRE be just as good? Or is admission testing just smoke & mirrors?

Just wondering.

It is the Scam Season. Spouse got a call the other day on the old IRS penalty scam. Female caller said if spouse didn't give a credit or debit card number immediately to pay the IRS fine, a sheriff would would be at the front door in an hour to arrest spouse. Spouse laughed at her. And laughed. And laughed. Would-be scammer finally hung up. No LEO appeared to slap the cuffs on said spouse. I am living with a hardened criminal.

I'm shocked you think that is what "pound the rock" means. It's simply about perseverance. Keep on working day in day out. It is not literal.

Is posting half naked pictures of young, sometimes underage girls any different than what Trump has said. It's the same mentality behind the actions. This is probably the biggest hypocrisy that BG rarely gets called out for. Everytime you post a pic think about your daughters, the objectification that you openly take part in and how they will probably be harassed or possibly evenly sexually assaulted one day because of this boys will be boys mentality. If you are going to take high minded, high moral ground approaches on other issues in our society how can you continue this practice in good conscience. I ask you to do the right thing and halt the RTG pics.

6one9teen quit coming here and gawking at those RTG's. You don't have to look, but you seem to know so much about the content. You must be looking. Close your eyes and just go past'em quickly without looking how little they are clothed, or, how young. You don't have to look ya know. Or even come here. Remove blog url from your favorites. Ask your pastor for help. Ir is different than what Trump has said. For sure, not the same damn thing.

It's funny that Popovich's "pound the rock" quote is taken as some lesson on perseverance to find the weak spot For those who don't play basketball or speak basketball street sland, the "rock" refers to the basketball, and "pound the rock" means to drive the basketball to basketball hoop for either a layup or slam dunk or to draw a foul.

I don't disagree that Popovich might be educated and accomplished, but in that instance he wasn't giving his players an exhortation about perseverance to find and exploit the weak spot.

Sheesh!! White people sure are funny!!
