The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Texas Tech fans swarmed the court over a win over WVU and a WVU player slugs a TCU fan. The result: Tech was fined $25,000. 
  • If you decided to travel down I-45 to Houston this morning, you aren't very smart. 
  • Fox 4 sent Jenny Anchondo down I-45. She looked like she did not like her job as she was stuck in traffic.
  • Lot going on here
  • Paul Ryan contemplated Dr. King's dream yesterday. He's certainly a man who is trying to make it come true.
    On right: Ryan with Republican congressional interns in 2016.
  • Start watching more and more branch banks shut down. Wells Fargo plans to shut down 800 of them in the next two years. I guess the reason is that no one physically goes to the bank any longer for routine transactions. 
  • Trump has two items on his schedule today. Meeting the leader of Kazakh at noon. And lunch at 12:30. That's it. Every school kid in America has a more grueling schedule.
  • Yet he's watching Fox and Friends again this morning. (And just because coverage is deemed "negative" does that mean it's not accurate. For 2018 there has already been a ton of coverage for his S-Hole comment. Is that "negative"?)
  • The seizure of 677 pounds of high-grade marijuana during a traffic stop near Rhome over the weekend might be the largest amount ever discovered in Wise County. Now we'll see if it was discovered legally. 
  • I've not delved into the story at the bottom of the DMN (below) where a lawyer went against his client's wishes and told the jury his client was guilty in a capital murder case. He thought it was the only way to avoid the death penalty. Sometimes admitting guilt when proof of guilt is overwhelming is the absolute best strategy to try to mitigate punishment.  The case gets argued before the Supreme Court on Wednesday, and I would think it will be reversed. You simply can't do that as a lawyer. In the end, you tell the client what you think they should do then they tell you what to do.  (Side note: After the trial, the lawyer decided he would never try another criminal case again. "I walked out of the courtroom saying I would never put myself through that again, emotionally.)

Why would one even want to save a clients life if you know he is guilty?

"In the end, you tell the client what you think they should do then they tell you what to do."

You left off telling him: "OK, I've written down what I think you should do, and that you are telling me not to do it. You sign right here saying that's accurate."

We're about to have a mess down here in Houston. Remember folks, send me your thoughts and prayers.

How do they know it was "high grade" marijuana without having smoked some of it?

Our current president says no more than those who have come before him...the press (that used to be journalists) reports it for there are a significant number of people who are fixated on the president (to the point he is mentioned in blogs continually). Our president was quite accurate in his description. Could it be rephrased? Certainly, just as many of the things any of us have said.

Riddle me this Barryman.... How many people of color even applied to be interns in the Republican party? You can't force non Caucasians to apply to appease SJWs such as yourself.

" Now we'll see if it was discovered legally"

How hard was that to find?

Officer "Sir can I see your Drivers License and insurance? What is that is that smell coming from inside the vehicle?"

Bad Guy " Yes Officer her is my drivers license. That smell is not the over 500 lbs of bud I have in this motor home.

Officer with a straight face " Sir can you step out of the Weed U haul?"

"Lot going on here:"
No, there's only one thing going on here. As Jerry Seinfeld said "People are the worst." And these are the worst of people. If you've got adult offspring, release them into the wild so they can eat. Then you wouldn't have to starve them, and you might be able to afford feeding the other kids you've got

"If you decided to travel down I-45 to Houston this morning, you aren't very smart."
What if you traveled down I-45, but were only going toward Houston, which is probably what Jenny Anchondo was doing in Corsicana. Either way, you're saying she and/or Fox4 aren't very smart.

What was a TCU fan doing at a Tech/WVU game? I mean other than getting slugged? And you make it sound like WVU should have been fined, but the swarming Tech fans were the reason for the fine. The player's misconduct is a separate incident.

Every school kid in America is trying to figure out where the heck Kazakh is located. That's a language or its people, not a nation

Regarding Wells Fargo. Good riddance, fold up like a cheap tent- go back to that bat hit crazy state they hailed from.

Can't catch the meaning on just what Mr. Ryan is trying to make come true.

mzchief said...

It's easy to take a jab at Paul Ryan's Congressional Interns when you don't understand the numbers.

Blacks comprise 14% of the US population and only 7% identify as Republican or lean Republican. Then there's the issue that most Congressional Interns are unpaid because Congress is exempt from employment/minimum wage laws. Knowing those facts you have to wonder just how few Blacks actually applied for a position as a Congressional Intern for Paul Ryan. Surely, no one would think it appropriate to hire someone as a Congressional Intern merely because they were the only Black who applied. For some: "they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character" is not just pretty words but actually a goal for society.

FYI...Hiring someone merely because of the colour of their skin is just as racist as refusing to hire someone because of the colour of their skin.

You talk about Trump's schedule today and make it sound like he's goofing off. Don't EVEN start on that bullshit. Obama's daily schedule was well documented and it was a FUC$ING embarrassment. And, everyone knew it . . . . Be careful, counselor, when comparing apples to apples. Be VERY careful.

The Big 12 fines any and every school(within the Big 12) for court/field storming. The fine isn't because of the assault. That is a separate issue.

Why do you think that was a TCU fan at the Tech/WVU game? Not that it really matters, but I just wondered how you came up with that.

I can see why it would be against the rules for fans to storm the court. Lots of emotion on both sides mixed with 20-ish-year-old kids on the court.

A quick search and you will discover there is no established fine for court rushing/storming on the books of the Big12. It was an arbitrary decision. Fact is if the WVU player hadn’t punched a fan on n the back of his head, Tech would not have been fined.

Lawyer is in a pickle. Had knowledge that client is guilty, but can't state he is innocent in open court because can't fib to court. So you have to obfuscate, tap dance, and offer alternative theories, all the time knowing client is guilty. So he rationalized that admitting and throwing his client on mercy of court would get best deal possible. Good logic but bad practice of law. Can't go against client's wishes. If you are at an impasse with client, ask court for permission to resign and have new counsel appointed/hired. Every individual deserves representation. He just doesn't deserve your particular representation.

A lying liar telling lies all day long is upset because he claims the News Media is fibbing about him? The insanity of that is mind boggling.
Also this just in:
1. Pedophile claims neighbor abuses his kids.
2. Speeder claims DPS trooper broke law to catch him by exceeding speed limit.
3. Druggie sues his dealer for breaking law in selling him illegal drugs.
4. Dog complains about other dogs sniffing his butt after he has done same.
5. Summer the Season chooses to take a vacation in July because it is too hot to work.
6. Rock claims that Paper is unfair in covering him. Should break like Scissors.

Branch banks are failing for many reasons. My wife and I went to our local Chase Bank in Lewisville today. They were rude, had a know it all attitude, did not listen to our concerns, etc etc. They bring customer non-service to a new level. My wife then went to the local DACTU credit union and got wonderful service. I doubt that our move from Chase will hurt the business much - but I hope so.

No.

Everyone together now: Innocent UNTIL proven guilty. He was innocent. You are too. Until a jury says you're not. You aren't "not guilty" until proven innocent. You're innocent. Every day. All the time. No matter what. Until a jury says you're not.

This is what conservatives should believe. It's what the founders believed.

I agree 100%. I went through this in a very conservative county where I was accused of DM during a very bad divorce. Charges ended up dropped but the damage was done. Lost job, fractured friendships, bank accounts drained. Been 5 years and I'm still not whole.

Let's be clear about something. Just because you, me the President or anyone else for that matter may think any particular city, state town or country is a "shit hole", does NOT make you a racist. Me thinking or saying Chicago is a shit hole and I wouldn't want to live there doesn't make me a racist. Personally, if The Donald did say it, then he should just own up to it, because I don't think the people who put him in office would be all that offended by it.
