The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • The Bridgeport family dying in that Garland home fire is horrible.
  • There was a shooting at Parks Mall in Arlington late yesterday, and the mall was shut down. If malls weren't in trouble already, crap like this isn't going to help it. And it looked like a scene out of Die Hard.
  • I was stunned that the Irving Mall survived after a guy was killed in 1993 as he was eating pizza in the food court with his wife and two daughters due to a stray bullet from a gang member. (I had forgotten that his name was Kevin Bacon.) 
  • The guy who shot and killed the DPS trooper a few days ago is a US Vet. 
  • Who wore it better?: Crazy former Trump consultant and current Fox News lapdog Sebastian Gorka or McLovin? I'll go with McLovin. Always go with McLovin.
  • College football: (1) Well, once again, I proved I'm a Sports Genius™. I predicted Auburn would upset Alabama. It happened. (2) OU will throttle TCU in the championship game. (3) Prediction: OU wins the National Championship, (4) I was in an Arkansas home watching TV when the UA fired its coach. The local news stations came on moments later and went nuts. (5) The Aggies fired Sumlin. I'm not so sure that's the right move. Just like I'm not sure it was the right move for the Aggies to leave the Big 12. (6) Mack Brown averaged 10.6 wins in his 1st 12 seasons at Texas. In 4 years since they fired him, the Longhorns averaged 5.5 wins a year. They have not won more than 6 games the last 4 years. (7) The Baylor/TCU fight was a really good one. (8)  But is was a good college football weekend, bruh.
            
  •  I really don't go on road trips, but I went to Arkansas this weekend to see Mrs. LL's side of the family. In the past, I could get out of it because I could use the excuse that someone had to take care of the dogs. Then two of them turned on me by dying, and I lost my out. Honestly, it was great. They basically give me a room with a TV, give me a remote, and everyone tells me to alert them on college football scores. And, man, they all play a lot of cards.
  • One thing I noticed along the way was the number of "Pilot" convenience stores. The place off of 407 in Wise County was just bought by them and, in a genius move, they put up a neon sign that can be seen from a mile away. I never thought the prior owner would make it because no one knew it was there. 
  • The "Snoop Dogg Trooper" has sued DPS. (Have I mentioned that DPS head Steven McCraw is paid by you in the amount of $220,039 plus medical benefits plus a pension plus other benefits? Have I mentioned my wife and daughter spent all morning in a DPS "Megacenter" on a Monday morning just to get a Provisional driver's license?)

  • High School Sports: Jacksboro advanced to play New Diana in the Area Round this weekend. Yep, New Diana. 
  • In case you missed it, Trump got crushed for this: 
  •                                 
  • I would like to point out that I was PROBABLY going to be appointed to the Supreme Court but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is not good and took a pass.
  • The Toddler in Chief is obsessed with Time's Man of the Year. In addition to having remove the fake Time magazine pictures from his resorts which showed him on the cover (he wasn't), he also has tweeted these over the years. It's borderline bizarre: 
  • Hot. Hunting. Opinion!: 
  • Hot Shopping Opinion: "Black Friday", "Small Business Saturday" and "Cyber Monday" are all cons. Just shop for the best deal regardless of when it happens. Those days are meaningless.
  • Speaking of cons, I talked to a pastor over the holidays who told me he absolutely agreed on my views about FBC of Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress. 
  • This "Diamond and Silk" bit by Fox News is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. His base, trust me, is not entertained by those two. [If had filmed that bullet point, Mrs. LL would be beside nodding her head and yelling, "Uh, huh!" and "That's right!"]
  • Stolen thought relevant to old timers like me: 'Happy Days' premiered in 1974 and was set in 1955. If a modern-day 'Happy Days' premiered in 2018, it would be set in 1999.

McCraw runs an agency of over 10,000 employees. He deserves it.

No. The guy who shot and killed the DPS trooper a few days ago was a turd who had previously been charged with trying to get an officers weapon + assaulting officers in the past.

Quit trying to paint him as something different.

Waiting for Justice headline.

I would bet every coming Thanksgiving and Christmas, the wife and 3 children of the killed trooper will be waiting for justice. That guy will never receive what he deserves for a long, long time.

Hot. Hunting. Opinion!: 


Hunting in a deer blind with a corn feeder and a rifle with a scope doesn't make it any easier. The temps have been too warm for one thing. And there is never a guarantee deer will come to your feeder. Especially with all the acorns on the ground right now. You can try to get rid of every challenge and obstacle in order to kill a deer, but that never means you are going to get one. Have you ever even been hunting?

I haven't seen Trump crushed by anyone or anything yet... 90% of America could care less.

I don't begrudge the DPS head his salary. If the people you supervised were used for target practice, and you were one of the targets, I think you would want a good salary and benefits.

To Barry...

"The guy who shot and killed the DPS trooper a few days ago is a US Vet."

Surely you meant to say "The guy who is accused..." or do you deny the presumption of innocence to people who are "vets"? Would you have presumed guilt if it had been pointed out that the ACCUSED shooter is black and has a history of assaulting law enforcement?

Just a reminder, Barry, being a bigot isn't that much more different than being a racist.

********************************

NEWSFLASH BU-Bear...There's a vast difference between a small town lawyer refusing to interview for a seat on the Supreme Court of Texas/United States and the President of the United States refusing to spend a day on a photo shoot and interview for the cover and "honour" of some lame rag that featured Trump, last year. Trump yammering about the Person of the Year pettiness further illustrates that Trump is so emotionally fragile thus explaining why Trump comes across as unhinged a majority of the time. However, I do understand Trump's unwillingness to jump through hoops for a "probably."

Barry, you really need to take a step back and put away your bias and learn to be a tad more objective about the craziness going on in life or it's going to eat you alive.

Dislike Trump all you want but if you're honest with yourself, you have to admit, some newb politician like Trump beating the Clinton Mafia, one of the most powerful political machines in modern times, is quite an accomplishment.

No one "crushes" Trump and who would want anything to do with that ridiculous rag called Time magazine. They are another example of the devolving of mankind.

By the way...today you can find a pastor that will tickle your ear about anything....most stand for nothing...but I am sure you have noticed that.

If you have an opinion about hunting don't take the passive aggressive route by linking to someone else's "hot opinion" bruh! That's as chicken shit!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't understand the intent behind the hunting post. Is somebody who just buys their meat at the grocery store, where the animal was on a conveyor belt prior to being killed and processed, somehow better? At least the hunter is killing (and often processing) his/her own meat.

I get that "hunting" may seem more authentic without all of that, but for somebody who doesn't hunt to mock any hunting seems hypocritical if they eat meat.

Deer hunting with bait, a fancy scoped rifle, and a comfortable blind? Wearing your designer camo? Come talk to me after you have noodled for seventy pound monster catfish by sticking your hand in their maw and letting them clamp down so you can drag them out of the murky water to the bank. All the time hoping a water moccasin is not cruising in the waters out of your eyesight. Now that is real wilderness wildlife procurement.

I use that same rationale on Dazed and Confused all the time. It was released in 1994 and depicts activities in 1976. If they remade it today, it'd be about the class of 2000 heading into their senior year.

Hunting? Putting out feed all year, then showing up one day with a gun and hiding in a box to shoot an animal you've been feeding is not hunting. Nothing about that is remotely associated with a hunt.

So you and some other preacher decided that the verse in the Bible “Judge not lest he be judged” doesn’t apply to you. Hypocrisy at its finest!
