The Campaign For DA

1.18.2018

Random Thursday Morning Thoughs


  • The footage of the Tarrant County College astronomy teacher acting nutty in class in a crazy outfit, as well as Fox 4 catching him later as he talks from his apartment balcony, is high entertainment. 
  • The U.S. Government commissioned a study regarding ways to strengthen DWI laws. It suggested lowering the legal limit to 0.05 depending on (1) the size of the individual, and (2) whether the person had recently eaten. Not only is 0.05 a ridiculous number, the "recently eaten" standard is unworkable. Ok, I'll stipulate a steak dinner counts. But what if it were four hours ago? What about six? What does "recent" mean? And what if a person at one small appetizer two hours ago? Would that count?
  • There are no federal DWI laws just state DWI laws. Astute readers will wonder how the federal government can dictate state DWI laws in the first place. Just like when all states went to 0.08 in the 1990s, Washington just told the states that it would withhold highway funds if they didn't change their laws. (For you CDL holders out there, that's the same reason you can't get deferred on Class Cs. The feds forced the state's to change its laws.)
  • Trump's ex-porn star girlfriend (once again, while Trump was married with a new baby Barron) gave an interview to In Touch magazine in 2011 where she confirmed the tryst. 
  • Worth watching (and quick loading): A big boat runs over a fishing boat as the fishermen/fisherwoman jump into the water. 
  • Do people "balance" their "checkbooks" any longer. Or in modern terms, keep track of beginning balance then subtract debits and add credits in order to see if the ending balance matches the bank's balance?
  • The murder trial in Wise County may go on for two weeks. Here's the Messenger story about the incident when it happened. 
  • Fascinating: 
  • Dallas and Austin are also on this list. But this whole show is basically a PR campaign for Amazon. Are they going to narrow the list to 10 later and announce it? Then five? It's kind of like a high school football player announcing he has narrowed his recruitment choices to three schools. 
  • Tom Brady hurt his throwing hand when he made contact with another player. He had to miss a press conference later in the day because he was getting medical attention. If he hit the helmet of another player after he released the ball, look out. (It was a long time ago, but Baylor's J.J. Joe did that during practice back in the day and had to miss the next game against Texas.)
  • We might actually have a federal government shutdown tomorrow.

And I'm sure all your readers will be fine with the fed shutting down, as I'm sure they were in 2013 and 95/96.

Why would you subtract a debit?

Who cares if the Fed shuts down?
It always starts back up and the employees don't lose a thing.

Remember during the 2013 government shutdown when Obama had National monuments fenced off? Great man.

re: balancing checkbook. Everyone should. Humans still make keyboard entries on checks and deposits, and clerical errors can happen.

That whole no deferment on CDL's is horse hockey. I've had a Chauffeur's/CDL since I was 17. I don't drive much anymore, but I keep my license current. If I'm in my car and get a ticket I don't have the same rights as any other private citizen driving their personal vehicle. That's not right. Professional work and private driving should be handled differently.

The banks used to send paper statements once a month, and I would balance my checkbook then. But it's too hard to keep track of transactions, not like back in the day when you had the carbon copy of the checks you wrote. And I only write about 15 checks a year now.
I balance it on a weekly basis. But I don't make entries in the register until then.

Yes, I’m 39 and I balance my checkbook

How about that booming Obammy economy? Winning never gets old.

"We might actually have a federal government shutdown tomorrow."

And the democrats are predicting the end of the world just like they always do, except when they are in charge and the government shuts down.

I use Quickbooks and reconcile my bank accounts monthly when the paper statement arrives. I still write checks and will continue to do that as long as I possibly can. I have started to pay most bills online, since the USPS is so incredibly undependable these days.

California Neck Stabber was a dreamer. He dreamed of killing more cops. And these are the people the democrats want to shut down the government for!

Do the Libs understand that for the Speaker to become President without some kind of sudden deaths, that both the sitting President AND Vice President would have to be impeached AND convicted in Congress in such short order that another VP could not be selected?
What are they smoking?

No, 9:53. Because if you have an issue driving drunk, I want to be sure there are tighter limits for you if you also drive a vehicle that is much larger than a private car.

For an average guy, .08 BAC is actullay really high and I see why they want to lower it. You could drink 4 pints in an hour and a half and still be under .08 if you’re a 200 lb guy.

Open checkbook...Write check...Record it...Subtract B from A... Log new balance...Close checkbook. Is there some kind of hidden complexity here??

Anonymous said...

12:23 - Since a debit increases the balance of an asset account (like your checking account) it is always added. Debits are for deposits. Credits would be subtracted and are for checks written, fees taken out etc.

DF Better at accounting than you guy

Like this White Cracka would have a chance as the President. Well hell Trump's Cracka A&$ made it...

Yes sir. I only keep a small amount in the checking account...I keep a running record by hand and I check on line often. I also so the balancing thing with an on line statement...I keep the printed & written record for 10 years. I think most people don't and pay the price for bounced checks or they find out at a point of purchase they are overdrawn..unless the have check protection...and that is expensive. Truth is I believe most are lazy and some just are not smart enough to do this.

Let me get this straight. Some dingbat blonde political pundit (Cheri Jacobus) who has become persona non grata even at CNN, tweets a really dumb and pointless comment about Mueller taking down the administration in its entirety. You, being the sickest TTTT'er out there, eat it up like opium based cotton candy and declare it to be "fascinating". Does that about sum up your abject idiocy?

You have turned into the most laughable (and laughed at) human in Wise county. And you are so damned ate up with the TDS that you can't see anything objectively.

If I were you neighbor, I'd move. If I were your client, I'd fire you double-quick. If I were your dog, I'd commit suicide. If I were your dad I'd hit you upside the head with a 2x4. If I were your car I'd be a Pinto.

You people kill me, I've been paying everything online for as long as it's been possible. I check my bank balance daily and in 15 plus years it's never been wrong.

The press was all obsessed with Trump's weight following his physical yesterday and his mental stability. If the press was fair and balanced the line of questioning would still be going on if Hillary had been elected.

1:35, Your "yeah, but" argument just proves you don't want to reduce crime because you are a thenthitive weenie. How many illegals do you allow to live in your house rent free because of your compassion?

Anonymous said...

2:26...Maybe you should rethink this before actually putting it in writing. When you debit a cash account, you are taking money out. When you deposit, it is a credit to your account. Find another DF moniker. Try DF Dumbass.

Obama smoked and drank himself to sleep on a nightly basis and never faced any scrutiny over that. Smoking is far worse than the occasional Big Mac!

If you bank at Wells Fargo you don't have to check your balance ever. It's always zero.

4:57 - subtractions are additions since they are a net increase in activity on an account.

Absolutely not, but the blanket argument that he was a bad person because he was illegal is the issue, he’s a bad person because he stabbed that woman. There are bad people on both sides of the “wall”
