The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I saw a U.S. mail delivery vehicle going through a neighborhood before 7:00 a.m. the other day. That's a first for me. 
  • Well, the Republicans rammed through the tax bill which will only benefit those who make a ton of money. You boys happy? You have no idea what just hit you or what will hit you in five years once every benefit you see in the next three years is gone. #TheBigCon
  • I'll be up monitoring it for you, but based upon the Liberally Lean Weather Center projections we've got a big cold front coming in at 2:11 a.m. tomorrow. 
  • Whomever wrote the disparaging comment about my Administrative Assistant yesterday, you are a disgusting individual. And you, unlike me, won't sign your name to your Internet comments. That makes you the ultimate coward. Read that word again, buddy, it was "coward."  (And you don't think I don't know your IP address? You think you're being clever?)
  • Oh, by the way, the coward decided to attack on Christmas week and before 9:00 a.m.! Peace and Joy!
  • Christmas Vacation still holds up. And the older I get, the more I relate to Clark. (Especially having a wife who just patiently shakes her head whenever he goes off.)
  • The new puppy is driving us crazy. And crazy with fun.
  • Twitter has been deleting white supremacist accounts. That is the company's absolute right -- it is not the government, it is a private company. I followed a couple of "Proud Boys" and they are now gone. 
  • It really is a great story: A female kicker for a six man Texas football team successfully did her job in the state championship game yesterday. But NBC 5 told me this morning that she was "hanging up her cleats and won't kick in college." Really? No way!
  • It's weird how the pseudo-intellectuals like Dennis Prager think that college kids are radicalized by their professors at universities but not realizing their anger might be because of their six-figure college loan debt. 
  • I will always be entertained by the wording of this tweet as the modern day Robert Tilton tries to make more money. Read it. "[J]ust as the Apostle Paul did!"
  • Watching Wise County DWI videos can be a beating and a joy. The joy comes when you find gold. I watched one yesterday where a guy who just happens to be from Thailand was asked by the officer about "karate" and "nunchucks." (If the officer saw nunchucks during the search of the vehicle after the arrest that would make sense, but I can't find it referenced in the report or see it on the DVD.) If that was just a random question I know two people in the courthouse who will explode. And that came after the initial contact when the officer asked him, "How many cervezas" he had had. Which he pronounced both as SIR-vasa and KER-vasa back to back. Most of the time my job is a beating, but there are times when I love it.

Yeah the new tax bill is not helping anyone but the rich!

You might want to ask all of those employees of A T & T etc. who have already heard that they are getting minimum wage raises to $ 15.00/hour or they are getting a $ 1,000.00 bonus. Also talk to all of the people who will benefit from all of the additional capital spending that these companies have already announced. That includes people involved in construction, equipment sales, etc.

According to your fellow Democrats, everyone of us ought to have died by now because of this new law!

The college courses with subject matter that is amenable to "radicalizing" students are the ones taken by kids that graduate with six-figure college loan debt with no hope of repayment. No one gets radicalized taking accounting, statistics, engineering, physics, nursing, or other practical courses. Who cares about the debt-laden, radicalized barista or retail clothing-folder?

Two men. One makes $25,000 per year as a basic, hard working, salt of the earth American laborer. The kind of person you want as a friend and a neighbor; give you the shirt off his back. With deductions and certain credits, pays $0 federal income tax. Under the new plan, will pay $0 in federal income tax. So, the tax cut "does not benefit" this man. (who probably gets actually gets a check, but not to confuse the math forget about that). Another man, took on debt for college, worked his way up to become a basic, hard working, high paid executive. Would also give you the shirt off his back and does a lot for the community, just like the first man. But makes $200,000 per year, with deductions and certain credits, pays $30,000 in federal income tax. Under the new plan, will pay $28,000 in federal income tax. So, the tax cut benefits this "rich man" by $2,000 and the other man gets no benefit. Never paid any taxes, and still won't. Yup, it's so unfair to give "fat cats" a tax break while leaving the poor out of it, I guess. Hey, the reason that ANY tax cut benefits "the rich" is because it's "the rich" that pay all the freaking taxes to begin with. And yet use, basically the same amount or less of the things taxes pay for, like roads, medicaid, national defense, etc.

Girl who played football is going to Texas A&M University at Galveston to major in marine biology, I heard. She won't have a lot of time for football.
Administrative Assistant: I saw the comment and thought that person had never stepped foot in an office, much less a law office. I don't know who your Admin Assistant is, but those folks go through a lot of classes to be able to answer the questions thrown at them by every person who calls or walks through the door.
The poster managed to also demean secretaries. There are thousands of secretaries, aides, admin assistants, clerks...you name it, and there is a word for it. They all work hard to make a business run smoothly. They don't deserve being slammed.

Sorry about your admin. Not cool. Those praising the tax bill and AT&T: you realize the difference between a bonus and a raise, right? Why not a raise, instead? Of course AT&T wants to make Trump look good. He just gave them a ton more money due to the Net Neutrality repeal.

11:44, I hope you're right. I don't know if the tax bill is good for America. I do know that it's good for me. Spoke with the accountant just the other day and if things continue as expected, between lower taxes and shifting to pass-through income for everything we do (including rent properties), we'll get to keep a fairly absurd amount.

But you know, I'd give it up to make sure more kids were fed, educated, and healthy. But what do I know? That's just what Jesus would do.

Any opportunity to bag on Jerress is a good opportunity. He is a charlatan and, in my opinion, does a lot of harm to the Christian brand, and preachers everywhere. 7 million dollars for a fountain...gimme a break.

As for the whole college student thing, I don't think you have to be some intellectual giant to understand that as a general rule, colleges are the domain of liberal folks. All college degrees require one to take "core classes", where they are in many instances penalized on exam day for failing to regurgitate the "answers" taught by the professors. So, yeah, there is a certain amount of crappola that goes on at almost all universities that crosses the line from teaching to indoctrination and doesn't have much at all to do with the amount of debt a graduate is saddled with at the end of the process and if you're a conservative or religious parent, it is maddening to think of sending your kid off to college and watch him or her grow increasingly more liberal and less religious with each passing semester. now get off my lawn.

@ Rage, You fail to mention that many wealthy people help make sure that more kids are fed and educated aside from the government. Faith based charities do far more good and are more efficient than the federal government. If the federal government was a joint, it would be full of seeds and stems.

Then why don't you do the Christian thing and donate the money to charities that can help the less fortunate better than the government can? Stay Woke!!

David Hooper, You have the deficit and the national debt confused. The deficit for FY 2018 is 660 billion, not trillions. That's why there is no discussion of it. Idiocracy much? AT&T is not the only company giving bonuses and pay increases to it's employees. So your argument of a payback to Trump doesn't hold water.

Hooper--------

Well if they didn't care about the $10 trillion ACTUALLY run up by Obama I don't see why they would stop and ponder some hypothetical $1.5 in the future. And since the debt is constantly rising under a heavy tax burden what's the harm in trying a tax cut to heat things up a little and see if something beyond 1.5% annual GDP growth might turn out different.

Or are you economically illiterate ?
