The Campaign For DA

11.09.2017

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Obama showing up for jury duty yesterday was great. (Quick three videos here.). It would be more fun being an ex-president than being a current president.
  • Nothing makes you feel dumber than trying to help with a kid's math homework. I gave up years ago. 
  • Nothing makes Mrs. LL clean more than having a guest over. It's almost enough to make me want to be sociable. Almost. 
  • A trooper's task of knocking on someone's door to tell them of a death has to be the worst aspect of the job.
  • Jerry Jones consideration of hiring Harvey Weinstein's ex-lawyer, who is brilliant but oversaw Weinstein's "spies" of his accusers, is a bad look.
  • Garth Brooks won Entertainer of the Year? Country music must be in bad shape.
  • WFAA had a feature on Randy Travis last night. I had no idea he was in such bad shape.
  • It was a self check-out scam. But you have to love this quote:  "The computer is for my husband. Since he just got me a Coach purse, I figured he deserved something nice, as well."
  • The Second Circuit will hear oral arguments in the Zeke case today. As I've said before, there will be no ruling from the bench. It ain't Judge Judy.
  • The director will reshoot all of Kevin Spacey's scenes in All The Money In The World. That movie is supposed to be great, but it also has a release date of December 22nd. Christopher Plummer will replace him in the role of J Paul Getty.
  • Mrs. LL saw this last night. I presume that's a cut out picture but in this day and time you never know. 
  • I had a client killed in an accident this week (it is unrelated to the funeral today in Paradise.). 2017 is making a run for the worst year ever. Edit: A commentor accurately stated that I might want to re-write that first sentence. 
  • The three UCLA players arrested for shoplifting (idiots) might be facing charges and reportedly cannot leave their hotel rooms until a decision is made. It might be a good thing that Trump is there at the same time. (If Trump is aware of it.)
  • Yep, we certainly have a handle on gun violence in this country: 
  • The Twin Hills Biker Trial is being broadcast on Facebook Live. I'm not sure I've ever heard of that before in Texas. (Although if court is not in session, I think it just fires up the last three hours or so that was broadcast.)  Edit: Obviously, Twin Peaks. Not Twin Hills. I've been at Lake Bridgeport too much.

Me either. But I have heard of the Twin Peaks Biker Trial.

Who said we have a handle on gun violence? What do you propose counselor other than full on confiscation? That's not going to happen. So again, like the rest of the left, you hand wring, without giving a viable solution.

I was on a fatality scene one day of a college age male and the trooper found his cell phone in the pickup. I was standing there when the trooper called MOM from dead sons phone to inform family he had been killed in a accident. it was the toughest thing to listen too I cannot imagine how hard it was to make that call especially knowing she expected to hear her sons voice not a state trooper when she answered.

Randy Travis has tried to sing; but he can't and will probably never sing again.

Notice Trump's picture in the Post. When media is out to get you, they ALWAYS choose unflattering pictures to publish, and flattering pictures of those they support. Anybody talking will make funny/unflattering facial expressions that we normally don't notice, unless you snap hundreds of photos in order to catch it.

This has to be the CHEAPEST and most COWARDLY way of showing bias.

Very nice RTG! I'm inspired.

Obama showing up for jury duty yesterday was...basically an easy way to get some face time. There is no way both sides would agree to have him on a jury. He could have had his people contact the court and get excused.

"It would be more fun being an ex-president than being a current president."
That's kinda like saying "It's more fun being a grandparent than a parent." You have to live through one to enjoy the other.

The bulletproof panels for backpacks isn't new, I think. But unless it's for some fundraiser, I don't know why parents would buy those from the school. They could probably get them cheaper from the manufacturer or an authorized vendor

A Wise County Deputy came to my house once and asked me I knew a lady by the name of ____that he was trying to locate her residence. I said of course I know her she is my mother’s sister, my aunt. He then said, so that would make you next of kin ... A bad day.

Obviously very uneducated. Doesn't she know a BJ works just as well? And she wouldn't go to jail for that.

Barry,
Your line should be "A client of mine was killed..." Saying you had a client killed indicates you learned from HRC.
Yes, making a next of kin notification sucks. Having to make one without support people (chaplain, etc) is worse but there are times you have to find out if the empty infant seat should have been occupied. Having to notify a coworker that is working in LE when his wife and two kids are killed is even worse.

I think Obama's Jury Duty yesterday was just an opportunity for him to get his face back in the news and let the people ogle him and further feed his ego. You know that the Secret Service could have called and had no problem getting him excused. Plus, what attorney would want him on the jury?

That Florida check-out scam is another of the many reasons I hate self check-out. Hate it.

After seeing today's RTG, I have to:
1. get much younger
2. get Hollywood handsome
3. get lots & lots of money

Since only the last is possible, where is the nearest bank and do you have a ski mask you will loan me for a short while?

9:17 Your statement may well be true, but this one is the MOST confusing to me.

Yesterday, news agencies covering the elections, who have been pushing politically correct labeling of all the lgbtq community, all identified winners as 'transgender women'. Are they women who identify as men? Are they men who identify as women? Would they prefer to just be called women (since that is how they identify)? Are they just using the term transgender for political gain in that specific community?
I just don't get it!
(see Washington Post, LA Times, NBC News)

Hey Skippy, ask Al Gore if he thinks Weinstein's lawyer is so great.

1) THAT RTG IS BUILT FOR SPEED!!!

2) Try sitting in a classroom w/ 15 -20 teenagers and the empty desk of one lost in an auto accident. One of the worst experiences in life.

12:32 - Obama definitely was the most destructive President in U.S. history. We’re all still reeling from his two terms. People are at each other’s throats and he’s stoned playing video games. God sees and he waits.
