The Campaign For DA

11.01.2017

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Eight people were killed by a legal immigrant in New York City yesterday. Don't forget that a white American citizen killed 58 in Las Vegas a month ago.
  • I'm a huge fan of Pulp Fiction, but I learned something at the courthouse yesterday about the movie. After the "Gimp Scene", where Marsellus Wallace is letting Bruce Willis go, and he's looking at the guy who did something, uh, bad to him, he says he is going to call a couple of "pipe hitting [n word]" to mess that guy up. For 20 years I've thought that meant people were coming over with pipes. Nope, "pipe hitting" is referring to a crack pipe. I had no idea.
  • Watching experienced civil trial lawyers who know what they are doing is a thing of beauty. It makes me realize what a sorry state the criminal bar is in. (There's a trial going on in Wise County.)
  • After I made my Bannon joke at the Brock Smith luncheon this week, I have received notices of  "You are my hero" to  "That was the greatest speech I've ever heard" to "Are you OK?" The last one was from someone who didn't understand what I did. I swear everyone of those are exact quotes. And I can't reveal some of the others.
  • Halloween was great last night. I've told this story many times before, but my buddy Kevin Clark, many years ago, ran out of candy and some straggler came up and rang the doorbell. He goes to his change jar, grabs a bunch of coins, and dumps them in the kid's basket. The kid turns around and screams, "He's giving away money!" and Kevin was suddenly inundated with kids. 
  • No one got crushed more than Junior on Twitter last night after he posted this. For example, someone pointed out that all the candy came from going door to door and asking to get it for free.  Junior has been acting strange lately. I suppose the thought of going to jail will do it to you.
  • Everyone realize this is the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas who people rely upon for spiritual guidance. This is strange.

  • I can't wait to read this just released by Texas Monthly

  • I stumbled on Jaws last night. It holds up.
  • I'm not a baseball fan, but even I'll watch a Game Seven of the World Series where Yu Darvish is a starting pitcher.

With respect to your first bullet point, we may never know the motive behind the Vegas killer. We already know the motive of the NYC killer. Mentally ill white boys are bad enough, but I'll take them over religion fueled Islamic murderers.

WHY ARE THE SELF-PROCLAIMED NON-RACISTS ALWAYS THE FIRST TO BRING RACE INTO THE CONVERSATION? ... I WAS ABOUT TO COMMENT ON THE LACK OF INK ON THE RTG'S, BUT THEN REALIZED THEY ARE PROBABLY TOO YOUNG TO GET TATOOED LEGALLY

Yes Barry, because when you are dealing with pissed off wasps in your house, it is always a good idea to fling the door open and invite more in.

If Junior got "crushed" because of this tweet, it wasn't apparent from your one example. The kid walked from door to door (showing initiative & labor) asked willing participants (private citizens, not the government) for treats that were controlled by the giver and voluntarily given in quantities the giver decided. There was no government compulsion to act or give on either side of the transaction. Trump's actual tweet was a decent, if uninspired, example. (Just ask William Bradford.)

And the responses, including yours, show that your own pettiness and vindictiveness are at least as bad as Trump's. What has happened to you guys?

You point being that a white is a more efficient killer by 50 than a Muslim terrorist?

David Sibley said...

Do you think we won't remember the race of the Las Vegas shooter? Does his killing 58 people somehow mitigate the deaths of 8 people in NYC by a Muslim?

To expand on your first item...

This is a legal immigrant from predominantly Muslim who attended a Muslim mosque in New York that was being watched by the Feds. He had pledged allegiance to ISIS and had an ISIS flag in the truck. When he got out of the truck, he was shouting "Allahu Akbar!'

Not as simple as you make it sound!

Triple Fake... said...

Darvish as the starting pitcher in Game 7 is a poor excuse for justification to watch it. If he gets into the slightest bit of trouble, he'll get pulled. The odds are extremely low that he will have much effect on the outcome, unless he gives up a couple of runs early.
The reason to watch is because it's Game 7, regardless of the starting pitching

And that is when you said.....


"Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to guys like you. I mean, it's not just the uniform. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination. Lee Harvey, you are a madman. When you stole that cow, and your friend tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with you, cowboy. But the two of us together? Forget it!"

"Mentally ill white boys are bad enough, but I'll take them over religion fueled Islamic murderers."

So you're OK with the people who murder more Americans than any other single group, just because they're white murderers, and not Muslim murderers?

Any reason we can't try to stop both?

"Eight people were killed by a legal immigrant in New York City yesterday."

Which is precisely why the US needs to do away with the Diversity Visa Lottery that allows anyone to enter the US, with limited if any vetting.

IF people do not understand the difference between the evil within their own home and opening the door and inviting in all manner of evil then there needs to be an entirely different conversation had, other than just one regarding the necessity for there to be equal standards for ALL immigrants.

By the way--when Republicans and the NRA actively fight attempts to limit the "evil within", what exactly do you propose happens?

Strike that. I could not care less what you think. You prove time and again that you have no answers. Please save your usual 2,000 word essay/screed response. Thanks.

8:48 has murderers he prefers!

If two people do exactly the same thing but one is a crazy white guy and the other Muslim, he "prefers" the exact same crime perpetrated by a crazy white guy.

I'd never even considered such a concept, but it's having immediate effects on my thinking.

Now, I've realized I prefer to get beaten on the street by Presbyterians than Methodists. If someone is going to steal money from my bank account, I'd prefer they were Mexican. And if someone is going to murder my mom, by God, they'd better be straight and not disabled.

I believe that "Jaws" is always airing somewhere on cable. If you just flip through the channels for long enough, you'll find it, just past all of those "Law and Order" episodes.

I usually watch the World Series only if the Yankees are in it but Altuve has grabbed my attention. His oversized abilities and enthusiasm are fun to behold. ( I used the word behold just because I didn't want to reuse the word 'watch' so soon.)

Nice job of proving yourself to being nothing more than just another loon who has nothing to add to the discussion regarding immigration other than throwing down the "you're a racist" card.

For YEARS I've advocated for a VIABLE guest-workers program. For YEARS I've advocated for a path to citizenship for illegal aliens who've been allowed to remain illegally in the US. I've always viewed the current system as nothing more than a means to keep illegal aliens as a part of a sub-culture that isn't granted the same rights and human decency as "legal" citizens.

Thanks for proving Liberal zealots are just as bad/dumb as Conservative zealots. Zealots from any side are dangerous to a society. Congrats on YOU being part of the problem rather than an agent for a solution.

Harry Sack,
Are you and folks like Rage so thick headed as to fail to recognize that one group has systematically plotted, schemed, and carried out attacks for one sole unified purpose? Theybwill NEVER stop until the jihad is complete. The naivete is astounding. No one, no one expected the Vegas guy to do what he did. The jihad its tell you exactly every day on the internet and on television what they wish.

You're an "expert" criminal defense attorney who's also a former DA and you didn't know the meaning of the phrase "pipe hitting"? I would say the criminal bar is in dire straits indeed.

My friend Liz Cortright is the latest defense lawyer to whip up on the "rising star" prosecutor in the TCDA's office in a failure to register as a sex offender. Directed verdict! The rising star was unable to put on a prima facie case and Judge Beach followed the law. Great day for the constitution and for requiring every party to a lawsuit to follow the law. Two weeks in a row of failure to register trials and two lessons learned for this young prosecutor.
