The Campaign For DA

11.07.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • There are reports TCU is on lock down this morning. There was a road rage incident where one driver shot at another (but missed.) Has the country gone crazy?
  • The Church Shooting guy lived with his parents in a high tone home.
  • Our governor is an idiot. He said yesterday that all these tragedies seem "heavy right now but put this in context of history, look at what happened with Hitler."  So if you kill less than 6 million, just "put it in context"? Austin is a clown car.
  • There's actually something to this: 
    L
  • Loved this line from Mark Davis' new column where he is mad at people who want gun control after all of these mass shootings: "Many of us favor addressing the actual problem, which is not a gun problem any more than drunk driving is a car problem." Uh, so why does MADD advocate ignition interlock on even first time offenders? 
  • Rand Paul was attacked by his neighbor over a long time dispute over leaves. Yep, leaves. Everyone thought it was a little funny until we learned his injuries are pretty bad. He'll be out of commission for a while.
  • If you are hard core into politics and followed the Carter Page story yesterday, you know that guy is going to get indicted.
  • In maybe one of the most shocking moments in a criminal trial I've seen in a long time was in the Twin Peaks Trial yesterday. The DA and his assistant said they didn't turn over exculpatory evidence they heard in a witness interview because they didn't believe the witness. That's not how this works. That is not how this works it all. It should cost them there jobs -- and that is just for starts.
  • Fox News: 
  • I've got a huge internal clock and this time change is really messing me up because my body won't acknowledge it.
  • Why don't we just keep the flags at half staff all the time? 
  • There are reports this morning that Secretary of Education DeVos will resign.  
  • The two women killed in the parking lot in Parker County were extorting money from the alleged shooter.

When Abel Rayna hired Jarrett to be his first assistant, he said he wanted to have a first-class prosecutor's office just like they had in Williamson County, where Jarrett Came from.

Yes, that's the same Williamson County where the prosecutor (and later judge) was disbarred and sentenced to jail, and the prosecutor was run out of town and had to get a job in Palau because none here would hire him after the way they handled the Michael Morton case. And what was their downfall? Refusing to turn over exculpatory evidence because they didn't "believe" it was relevant.

Looks like Reyna got what he asked for.

1. "There are reports.... Has the country gone crazy?" That's what I've been asking for the last year.
2. "...so why does MADD advocate ignition interlock on even first time offenders?" It's a bad comparison. First of all, the equivalent "lock" would be the laws forbidding gun ownership for felons, those convicted of domestic violence, etc. Second, even your MADD device is aimed at the individual, not the car. It's easily bypassed by having someone else blow into it. Lastly, in these high-profile shootings, every one is by a "first time offender." Unlike drunk drivers, these killers never get a second chance.
3. "I've got a huge internal clock..." Now you're just bragging. Most of us wear our watches on our wrists.

Hey--can mischief come in here again and tell us all how much money she's supposed to be in charge of? She sounds totally believable. I mean, anyone who runs a multi-million dollar empire really would throw a shout-out to their yard man, instead of an accountant or lawyer. Right...

While DeVos has had rough sledding in trying to bend the Department of Education to her will, the insider chat is that the real reason she may beat a hasty retreat from Washington D.C. is because of the recent Paradise Papers leak regarding off-shore money hidden to avoid taxes. It appears to be sinking the Commerce Secretary (besides being in business with Putin relatives) and may also catch up to Mrs. DeVos and all her Amway money.

Blogmeister, you are a smart guy, so I suspect you're trolling with that whole interlock/MADD/gun control comparison, but on the off chance that you're not: you're not comparing apples to apples there hoss. Gun control folks want to do away with gun ownership by private individuals. That's the goal, and everything else is nothing more than an acknowledgement on their part that they can't do it all at once, so they commit to chipping away at those rights one piece at a time (you know, like pounding the rock). The good folks over at MADD don't attempt to have prohibition reinstated, as even they will acknowledge that was an abject failure. I realize you were working with broken tools in that you were having to respond to a Mark Davis line, but come on, you're better than that.

Why aren't all gun purchases kept on a digital database? Because NRA doesn't want that to be the case. If LEO's want to check ownership of a gun they have to go through a building full of paper files. In this day and age this absolutely makes no sense. The NRA wants to hide an accurate registery of gun ownership because they say that would lead to confiscations. Bulls#$t!!!!

The sequence of events at Sutherland Springs is a bit hazy to me. The guy who chased him down chased him several miles, saw him run off the road, then just left and went back to get the police, and when the police got there, he'd shot himself three times

Hey Brows:

The main stream "gun control folks" want to do away with individual gun ownership just like the main stream 2nd Amendment folks want every prepubescent kid in the 'hood to be able to walk into Walmart and buy a 9mm semi auto with a 15 round clip. What true gun CONTROL people in the nation want is a return to the Brady Bill, which your Arch Angel Reagan is the one to have conceived and passed into law. Go spread your lying bullshit with your buddies at FNC. People like you are what have destroyed the civility of this nation.

Not true, we're ok with people owning guns for home protection and hunting (if you want to practice hunting), just not auto and semi-auto weapons that are meant for military use. I consider myself a democratic socialist and I own a couple handguns (home protection), a couple of shotguns and one deer rifle for hunting. So stop using that lame fake news reference that gun control proponents want to take away your guns. That's what all you right wingnuts said Obama would do and you still have your guns and your assault rifles.

Nobody gives a shit that it's a gun-free zone. Schools are gun-free and people are shot at schools with alarming regularity. Stop being such an idiot. Please sit down and let the adults talk.

I own guns, even a Mini 14 but I don't need to own 100 rd. Clips for it. My pistol is single action and I have a double barrel shotgun. If you need more than that your just measuring your johnson.

You people say "The GC crowd doesn't want to take your guns or that you can't own guns. Just that you can't have AR-15's." Which is it? Also, the end game of the actual people pushing gun control, the Bradys, Watts, and Bloombergs of the world, is 100% confiscation of private firearms ownership. Not for their armed guards of course, no, but that is their endgame. They make no qualms about it. They openly admit gun control will be incremental. But I can't own a gun that is used in fewer murders than hammers or fists each year?

If you want to do something about gun deaths, let's start with why 20,000+ people every year who feel life is no longer worth living.

If you want to do something about gun violence, let's talk about the young men in large cities that have been raised without two parents in the home. Lets talk about why they see a life of crime ahead of them and go willingly.

If you want to do something about gun violence, let's ask some hard questions and make some hard decisions. Going after an object is simply the status quo for the left. It's much easier to blame something that can't make decisions than to ask the questions about why someone did something. God forbid some accountability be had (also another trademark of the left).

The whole debate though, really, comes down to this. If I have my guns, and you don't want me to have my guns, what are you going to do? Send people with guns to take them. Seems a little hypocritical, right? I won't get started on the sheer logistical nightmare something like that would be, or just how stupid the idea is. Let's just all agree it's wholely impractical.

Waco is going to coming around with the donation plate asking us to chip in and pay for decision of their elected DA to arrest close to two hundred folks at Twin Peaks. As Texans we'll get to pony up twice. Once for state reimbursements and a second time from the federal till.

And it turns out that the DA may have been driving that train high on cocaine. No matter if stoned or stupid, by defying Brady and the Michael Morton Act Reyna, Jarrett and Dillon just pissed down every good Texan's back. The message was pretty clear that we were damn tired of seeing innocent people railroaded wile the state held exculpatory evidence.

You folks might want to think about that when Waco comes around with their hand out. And they are fixing to. Their burning through funds like cow hands at the chicken ranch. Might want to give Abbot a call and let him know that you want no part of this.

7:14 - As a communicator, it isn't the receiver's responsibility to pick up on sarcasm, it is the responsibility of the sender. So if your writing is ineffective, that sir, is not my problem. The fact that you struggle to adequately express yourself is something you will have to work on. Until then, your message reads without obvious sarcasm, which makes you look like an idiot. If you intended to imply sarcasm, I apologize for calling you an idiot - but I will simply shift my focus to your poor use of the language.

Save it 7:14. (the following message is written entirely in sarcastic font for those with reading comprehension challenges) The law says there can be no guns in hospitals, schools, movie theaters, sporting venues, Chicago, etc. So since there are laws that say so, then no one must ever get shot in those places. Sooooooooooooooo, according to you liberal, socialist, dumbocrats, all we need is more laws governing the types and places guns can exist. I never knew the solution to gun violence could be so simple...let the guvment do it.

Anonymous said...

Ohhhh...so your comment was a straw man. I get it. While Barry and the rest of the forum was discussing where you'd prefer to get shot, a nod to the Fox & Friends preferring to be shot in church discussion, you decided to morph the conversation into some half-assed volley about how difficult it can be to enforce rules? Oh...okay.

Here's a good example of how to write sarcasm: You're right, jackass, we should get rid of all the rules since no one follows them.

Have a great day and keep coming up with these great solutions. (Another example of sarcasm - don't fret, you'll get it. Writing effectively takes practice.)

A few quick things:
1. You are 7:14 - I am 9:27. No biggie, I followed.
2. Sarcasm is not a font. Times New Roman is a font. Sarcasm is a tone.
