The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I've got a new University of Texas apartment update via email from a faithful reader: "[My] teenager......one bedroom apartment 8 minute walk to campus at UT: $1,625 a month plus $100 parking fee plus electric.....486 square feet, sir."
  • An Oklahoma state rep was caught in a hotel room with a 17 year old boy during a sting operation. But, oh my, that T-Shirt! That's Ephesian 5:22.
  • Last night, according to public records, the Wise County Sheriff's Office arrested four men for prostitution. That's a new one.
  • I don't understand this Jerusalem news nor do I care. But there are lots of folks in this world who do. 
  • Trump slurred his words yesterday during the announcement and the boys on the radio nailed it this morning: It's either medication, loose dentures, or a guy getting old and tired.
  • Al Franken, under pressure from Democrats, might resign today. Meanwhile, Republicans refuse to denounce Roy Moore.
  • If you saw Anderson Cooper interview Roy Moore's "spokesperson" last night you saw someone get crucified. She has no idea what she is doing. All she could reply with was, "The Constitution . . . ." I wish Cooper would have asked her what's in the First Amendment. It would have been a deer-in-headlights moment.
  • Mrs. LL is confused by the Roomba. She asks, "Where does all the dirt go?" And when you compare it to a regular vacuum, she has a point. 
  • The Messenger has a new toy which will haunt you. See it in action.
  • Boys, it is cold outside. If you walked outside before 7:00, you felt the warmest temperature of the day.
  • The Texas Law Hawk has a new commercial. I'm back to hating the guy -- and I'm a guy who is a fan of bits.
  • That story of a guy having a multitude of metroplex clubs to sell cocaine and two police officers being involved is insane.  One club was in the old "Seminary South" shopping center.

"I'm back to hating the guy..."

WOW THAT'S A SURPRISE. YOU HATE SOMEBODY?

Think of the Roomba as a mini vacuum cleaner. The dirt goes into a small compartment and you empty the compartment after each use.

You do know you have to empty the Roomba after each use, right?

Yep...if you want to make a good profit...buy a house near any good college and rent it out...highway robbery. If you can find a good roommate it would be a little cheaper to find a two bedroom and split the cost.

It is strange to witness someone calling Roy Moore names when I remember 1980 so well.

If you don' think a one-room apartment on Guadalupe is better than a run-down tenant-farmer shack on 4th street near Baylor at half the price, well, you're crazy.

I put my son right across campus the first year he was at UT, and the time and gas he saved not having to drive all over was more than worth it. Then when he figured out that the busses were free for students, he moved a few blocks further north, and still didn't have to drive anywhere.

Don't even get me started on how much I saved paying state-school tuition over even what I paid 20-somethig years ago at Baylor.

UT, even with its living situation, is a no-brainer.

Why do you hate the Law Hawk? He's a nice guy and a zealous advocate. Marketing in the big city is harder than Wise County Skippy. Lighten up Frances.

I have to congratulate you BG. You didn't damn President Trump for not extending the delay of an act of Congress twenty years ago. Yes, that's right, Congress made the decision to move the US Embassy to Israel's capital city, with overwhelming support from both sides, including a California Senator that is now saying it is wrong of him. Each administration since has been able to extend the delay of the move.

Liberals aka Democrats need to make up their minds about how people who've committed bad acts in the PAST are treated in the present. Remember, it is Liberals who believe that felons, when seeking employment or to rent an apartment, shouldn't be required to disclose that they're indeed a felon. Conservatives aka Republicans need to drop the false claim that they're the "party of family values."

Due to stupidity or wanton duplicity, Liberals are intentionally conflating the sexual misconduct of Al Franken and John Conyers to that of Roy Moore. The sexual misconduct admitted to by Al Franken and John Conyers was committed after both had been elected to the US Senate. Roy Moore is accused of having engaged in sexual misconduct decades ago prior to his campaign for US Senator. The implication is that voters had no idea, when electing Franken and Conyers, they were electing sex pests whereas the good Christians in Alabama are well aware that they will be voting for someone suspected of a history of pedophilic behaviour.

It's pretty standard procedure to fire someone, from their current job, for misconduct committed during their employment. Is it really acceptable to prevent someone from obtaining a new job due to misconduct they're accused of having committed decades ago while employed elsewhere?

What concerns me about the Roy Moore situation, IF Moore becomes a lawfully elected US Senator and the US Senate decides they don't like Moore and refuse to seat Moore in the Senate who else and for what reasons can the US Senate refuse to seat a duly elected Senator?

Disclaimer: I find it disgusting that Conyers, Franken, Moore, Barton, Pelosi, Trump etc...are what the US electorate considers acceptable representation.

Roomba is the dumbest gadget ever. How lazy have we become?

Conyers’ son, his handpicked successor, was accused of domestic violence. GF got a restraining order, still in effect. He’s well qualified.

So the Law Hawk thought NOW was a good time to release a commercial whose premise is based entirely on a woman making false accusations against a man?

What's that, he's soliciting business in Texas? Never mind.

Mzchief....standing ovation.

Sadly Barry's less enlightened readers won't get it.

Well done

"Estoy obligada" didn't anyone learn from the election of Donald Trump?we want to take our country back from people who somehow believe that this country needs to be more "progressive" or whatever other catch phrases that these people want to use.
I was born and raised in South America, but I learned to speak English and don't want this country into the corrupt, socialist country that our family chose to leave. Please dont turn our seminary south into the mercado grande , or whatever the heck is called now.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

The past four presidents promised to move our embassy to Jerusalem but never did. Trump actually did promise and delivered. That's why so many are upset. Winning never gets old.

Come on ! Lay off the righteous indignation please. You find it disgusting? Hell the public has elected convicted criminals, liars (Trump), womanizers(Kennedy) indicted felons , and every once and a while dead people. Doesn't make it right but a lot worse misdeeds have been overlooked every since we began electing people to represent us 200+ years ago. Personally unless it's a criminal accusation I'd like investigations into people in congress to go forward before removing them . Give people offended or harassed a forum to air their complaints and those accused to defend themselves. Then decide to remove them or those truly guilty will probably resign before having to be called out in public.

Are you sure that you aren't just jealous that you didn't think of the video ideas before the Law Hawk? Don't know how good of a lawyer he is, but you have to admit that he is good at marketing. Imagine how much money he would have had to pay to get this kind of exposure.

A Roomba is the continuation of the process of eliminating the use of human muscles and making people fat. Other devices to eliminate muscle use: TV remotes to stop getting up to change the channel, two way light switches to save walking across the room, microwave ovens instead of chopping wood to cook with, automatic transmissions on vehicles to eliminate the use of muscles in the left leg to depress the clutch pedal, riding lawnmowers instead of walking and pushing one. etc. The list is endless and people keep getting fatter because they love the foods of their grandparents who mowed their yard with a manual reel mower and needed a higher calorie intake to function. Some of the muscle use reducing devices are very scuttle and each may only reduce burning calories to a degree that does not seem significant. But with every minute of everyday being affected by them they are contributing to obesity by eliminating muscle exertion.

A Roomba is great for picking up pet hair. Turn it on when you leave the house and when you return you have a swept room. That's not being lazy or dumb. That's being smart.

Thanks 1:10. I now have to clean Coke off my monitor! Where's that windex?

1:55--------I would love for you to explain "scuttle" to me. I know the word but am having a hard time with your context.

I forgot to say that all those devices that reduce the use of muscles gets your work done faster so that you have time to go to the gym to work out. That may help to reduce the damage to your body that they cause.
