The Campaign For DA

12.01.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • It's looking more and more like the Texas Border Patrol agent died as the result of an accident instead of being attacked. 
  • The Aggies are rumored to have offered Jimbo Fisher $7 million to lure him away from Florida State. I've said this before: Everyone went crazy in 1982 when the Aggies paid Jackie Sherrill $280,000 a year making him the highest paid university employee in the entire country. 
  • I didn't know about this, but years ago Deadspin ran a piece from the Dallas Observer written by a Star-Telegram female sports reporter who had a tough job.
  • Joe Barton, wisely, has decided not to run for re-election. Speaking of the Observer, I'll credit a friend I've never met pointing out they dug deep to find this photo in its archives. And you truly wonder what he is looking at. 
  • Jim Nabors died yesterday. Man, Sargent Carter yelled at him a lot. 
  • And another (Houston): 
  • Pre-Mature Candidacy: He later backed off once he learned that the media had screwed up the report via a Pre-Mature Announcement of her resignation. (He's Fox 4 News contributor and, actually, pretty good. He's also a former cop and now a defense lawyer. He'd probably be a great Sheriff if he doesn't start wearing a cowboy hat.)  Side note: Is he right about the way the election would have been handled? If the Sheriff were to resign there would be an election in March? I thought it would be a Commissioners' Court appointment to fill the remainder of her term
  • Who even approved this to start with? 
  • Fight! Fight! Fight! (And Kimmel's monologue last night, was epic:“So if you are challenging me to a fight, here’s what we’ll do. Let’s find a place to do it. I’ll wear a Girl Scout uniform so you can have something to get excited about.” )
  • According to the Update, a guy facing up to 20 years in prison for Agg Assault pled to 16 years in Wise County. Am I missing something? 
  • Mrs. LL was in charge of showing a video to an elementary school today. She chose Charlie Brown's Christmas. She watched it last night and said, "There's no way I can show this." I'm not sure I've ever been prouder. Someone who actually understands the separation of Church and State. (It's a very diverse metroplex school and she would have been crucified -- pardon the pun --  afterwards.)
  • Edit regarding the above: Do those who have rushed to comment not understand that as a government employee that she represents the government? Do you not understand the government cannot advocate one religion over another? Do you not know of Linus' speech? What if she wanted to show Charlie Brown's Ramadan? As I've said before, I've got the smartest and dumbest readers in the world.
  • Remember the illegal immigrant who allegedly shot and killed a lady on a pier in San Francisco in 2015? Well, he was found not guilty on all charges yesterday.  Not guilty of murder. Not guilty of involuntary manslaughter. And he had a public defender. 
  • A Texas Sheriff says he will no longer hug. Good idea, buddy.
  • Breaking News! The dominoes have begun to fall. He has absolutely cut a plea deal to turn on the Trump Mafia. He actually led a "Lock her up!" chant at the Republican National Convention. Delicious. 
  • Never forget: 
  • I find it stunning that Dez Bryant is now the all-time Cowboys receiver in TDs. I'm also stunned that the leader had been Bob Hayes. I would have guessed Irvin.

The no-hugging Sheriff is a grandstander. Just quit hugging people and shut up. No need to draw attention to yourself.

Well, you're the first person I've ever met that thought Schulte was a good attorney. He's good at getting on TV, though -- there's no more dangerous place to find yourself than between him and a camera. Loved his comments after the drunk/abusive Dallas ADA got fired -- that when he had confidential client communications in front of an Uber driver, the Uber driver should keep quiet.

I've been at my job for going on 20 years and I can count on one hand the number of women I've hugged. It's just not something you do at work.

BREAKING: AP reporting Michael Flynn is pleading this AM to a charge of knowingly making false statements to the FBI in a plea deal w? Mueller. FLYNN HAS FLIPPED AND TRUMP IS RUNNING TO THE CRAPPER!

Fact check Barry- he was found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm.
How the jury found him not guilty of the manslaughter charge is hard to believe. The pistol was mechanically correct, it discharged through his actions and killed someone. That was hard to believe.

Never been prouder huh? So a harmless cartoon about a Christmas tree violates separation of church and state? I seriously question your ability to be a rational advocate of the accused. You contradict yourself constantly. So sad.

If Kate had been black or gay or transgender, he would have been found guilty.

Agg Assault? Barry, did you mean:

Egg Assault - hitting someone with the Rooty Tooty Fresh & Fruity at IHOP
Ag Assault - Punching a hay bale or cow
Aggie Assault - damn those Corps folks
OG Assault - original gangster deserves it
Ig Assault - Never liked that Iggy Azalea music

Just wondering.

Back in the day, we put on a Charlie Brown Christmas play in elementary. I can't remember the name of my classmate who played Linus, but I remember he nailed it. I guess we got away with it over here in Jacksboro.

I'm not sure anything will come of it, but have no doubt that the Mueller investigation is now inside the White House. He's not just after candidate, Trump, but President Trump.

The dope of mope, Danny Balis, made the cover of this weeks Fort Worth Weekly newspaper. He's part owner of a Dallas bar opening a Cowtown location.

Star-Telegram writer Mac Engel is undefeated on Twitter. He's like an internet flame warrior from 1996. During the Cowboy game he made over 50 tweets. Big Mac also teaches basket weaving at TCU for their communications school.

That's all for today in Metroplex Media News.

No doubt Joe Barton's actions show poor judgement and taste, creepy, yucky, lack of family values, and on, but is anyone claiming assault, or other charges from subordinates? Maybe I've missed it in the news. That is different from those who have claims of assault, harassment, wrongful termination, etc., from subordinates, against them.

I showed the Peanut movie, Charlie Brown Christmas, every year for several years. No complaints from anyone. The kids loved it!

"That is different from those who have claims of assault, harassment, wrongful termination, etc., from subordinates, against them."

Absolutely it is.

It is nonetheless still poignant that he ran for years on the family values ticket, and has a history like he does of leaving wives for staffers, and now this kind of thing. It's like when anti-gay Republicans get caught soliciting gay sex in airport bathrooms.

We all love the irony of such patent hypocrisy. I am sure that once Clinton is convicted, the Republicans will understand what I mean.

When will gangster rap, which promotes the exploitation of women and the murder of law enforcement officers, be removed from our society.

To me, the actions of Franken, Barton, and Keillor are trivial compared to that. Or is it ok to promote the exploitation of women?

Gangsta rap compared to Charlie Brown Christmas- obvious which one has to go.

Dez has 72 td receptions.

Irvin is 4th in Cowboys history, with 65 td receptions.

What bothered me was that nobody mentioned that the Witten td was his 67th (3rd in Cowboys history).

I have noticed that I have never met anyone offended by "Christmas" even those I know of faiths other than Christain.

Bear said...

Usually the only people offended by a particular religion are those that refuse to follow any religion. They want all of us to respect their rights, but they refuse to respect our rights.

The law says the government can't force religion on you. It does not say you have the right to be protected from all religion.

Now, I am not a lawyer, but it seems pretty cut-and-dry to me.

Why do so many "educated" lawyers have so much trouble with that?
