The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Trump really lost it last night. 
  • From the Dallas Morning News:This happened around 2:00 a.m. this morning. 
  • Remember me reference the ex-Baylor wide receiver who, after being drafted last year, was cut by three different teams and didn't make the practice squad on any of them. Well, the Dallas Cowboys have signed him this week.
  • I've gotten through 80% of Baby Driver, and it was nothing like I was expecting. It's dark. It's smart. It's tense. But it had a distracting aspect because it is centered around a young man who keeps getting hired for crime gigs by a character played by Kevin Spacey.
  • This is (1) Horrible breaking news, and (2) The most confusing statement I read in a long time. 
  • Mrs. LL has decided to install one of those doorbell cameras by herself. I'll be dang, so far so good. (My only job was to trip the breaker which was no easy task when over half of them are not labeled!) 
  • A winter "bomb cyclone" is about to hit the lower east coast? That's a new one on me. (It's snowing all over North Florida right now and they are freaking out.)
  • This is from a parody site, and it's funny: 
  • I heard there was a sign at the Decatur Post Office warning of long lines due to illness. (There is a lot of sickness going on out there and it seems to linger.)
  •  I forgot to mention about the New York trip: One of the oddest moments was when the Teenagers in the House became giddy when they saw a subway rat.

What is funny about the congregation's gold adornments being melted to fashion a golden idol of the new Messiah, Donald Trump? High Priest Jeffress is a smart man. Not Fake News to me.

Snowing in Florida? It must be:

1. Proof of Climate Change
2. Sign of the Apocalypse
3. The Lord just screwing with us

Pick One.

Barry, a serious health advisory. Folks who haven't yet had a flu shot should get one ASAP. Any protection is better than none. And the stories about folks who had the vaccine still getting the flu? The vaccines protect against anywhere from 3 to 6 strains each year. There are at least 144 varieties of flu each season. A rogue strain can invade the U.S. that the vaccine does not protect against. Always a chance. Still, play the odds & get your shot.

Using a day or two of 'sick leave' to extend a long weekend is not that unusual for govt. employees.
To do it correctly you take off the first scheduled working day with 'annual leave' then the next scheduled working day you take a 'sick leave' day.
That way you don't run into the official guidance about first and last day of a long weekend and using 'sick leave'.
So, for the last two weeks, one would take Tuesdays as 'annual leave' then 'sick leave' on Wednesday.
That way you would would have Monday off, Tuesday off, Wednesday off, work Thursday and Friday.
Two weeks with four actual working days.

I've heard the Subway rats are as big as a Blimp(ie's rat)!
That's a little NYC fast food humor. Very little

I wasn't that impressed with Baby Driver. The dialogue and characters were straight from a '50s noir B-movie. They just put a lame 21st century twist on the whole thing.

You didn't have to go all the way over to the DMN for the story on the distracted driver. It was right there in the WCM Update. The only additional info from DMN was the little tidbit that the cat escaped injury.
Seems like the driver should be cited for...something. Several jokes come to mind here.

Hey Skippy! Stay Woke!

Why haven't you posted about how it was Republicans who paid for the Fusion GPS/Steele dossier on Trump opposition research, and only after it was complete did someone pass it to Democrats?

Why haven't you posted that Trump and Republicans are refusing to release congressional testimony on the dossier?

Where are we in America when the left is disturbed that our president puts a dictator in his place? The biggest threat to our nation will be the continued demasculation of men. And your ilk are leading the charge Green.

Wordkyle: maybe look at any news site that isn't Fox. I've seen this at least 3 different places and I'm not the one who is the 9:32 commentator. You've posted about how smart Trump is. Please provide documentation.

OK GREEN TWO DAYS AND LITTLE TO NO CONTROVERSIAL POSTS. YOU NEED TO LAY OFF THE AMBULANCE CHASING FOR A FEW DAYS AND AMP IT UP ON THE CONTROVERSY POSTHASTE.

LOL Wordy, even Trump admitted that the dossier was started and pretty much primary funded by a GOP opponent during the primaries.

Disprove 9:32, or me.

https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/15/how-trump-walked-into-putins-web-luke

"During the primaries, a website funded by one of Trump’s wealthy Republican critics, Paul Singer, commissioned Fusion to investigate Trump. After Trump became the presumptive nominee in May 2016, Singer’s involvement ended and senior Democrats seeking to elect Hillary Clinton took over the Trump contract."

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/02/opinion/republicans-investigation-fusion-gps.html (which is an op-ed from Fusion GPS' founders)

"The intelligence committees have known for months that credible allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia were pouring in from independent sources during the campaign. Yet lawmakers in the thrall of the president continue to wage a cynical campaign to portray us as the unwitting victims of Kremlin disinformation.

"We suggested investigators look into the bank records of Deutsche Bank and others that were funding Mr. Trump’s businesses. Congress appears uninterested in that tip: Reportedly, ours are the only bank records the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed."

You should take the Teenagers to Central Park at dusk then. Lots of rats there! They're as big as cats and freaked me out!

I enjoyed NY the 4 days I went this summer and have it on my bucket list to go back at Christmas time hopefully.

Sorry, kiddies, I knew the answer when I asked the question. The NY Times -- not known as a friend to anyone other than Democrats -- said:

"After Mr. Trump secured the nomination, Fusion GPS was hired on behalf of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the D.N.C. by their law firm, Perkins Coie, to compile research about Mr. Trump, his businesses and associates — including possible connections with Russia. It was at that point that Fusion GPS hired Mr. Steele, who has deep sourcing in Russia, to gather information."

Or, if you don't like the NYT, try the WaPo article "Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier"

You guys try over and over to prove Goebbels's quote, "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth." You're what keeps me commenting here.

Oh, and 1107 - Cite what I've actually said about Trump being intelligent, then come back with a more informed comment.

Hey 8:59,it's snowing in Tallahassee, Florida for the 1st time in 28 years. And today's the sunspot count is at zero again as we approach the minimum between solar cycles 24 and 25. What say Al Gore?

Anonymous said...

Wordkyle, you're (a) ignoring the Guardian article and (b) ignoring the WaPo article that you cited.

From the Guardian,

"During the primaries, a website funded by one of Trump’s wealthy Republican critics, Paul Singer, commissioned Fusion to investigate Trump. After Trump became the presumptive nominee in May 2016, Singer’s involvement ended and senior Democrats seeking to elect Hillary Clinton took over the Trump contract."

From your own WaPo article,

"Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary."

210 - What was there to ignore? Fusion was often used by politicians to conduct opposition research, nothing wrong with that. Republicans did so. However, their involvement ended after the primaries, before Steele and his "dossier" came into being. You say that yourself.

Now, reconcile those facts with 932's comment, the one for which I asked documentation. I'll wait.

I was watching a show about Nixon and the Watergate Scandal this morning. There were some modern news breaks during the commercials - it was hard to see much difference between then and now.

Oh, Wordkyle, honey, no. I don't have to cite your comment. I'm not a student turning on a paper. Trump getting himself elected does not show some level of intelligence. When he used a foreign entity for mutual benefit, it was treason. Not covering his tracks and his family's tracks shows a high level of stupidity. I laughed about your comment for a week and it brings me such mirth when I can bring it up to point out your errors. Please keep doing this at least once a week.

So fr there is no evidence that Trump has gave any foreign nation any thing besides a dressing unlike Hilary and Obama < Nuclear fuel . Billions of dollars ! Oh but the bitch got what ?500 million in her personal fund to use as she pleases ? All of the information that the Russian had was true ! I wouldn't care if it came North Korea ,frankly !!

We had some rats take up residence around our house in late summer. They would come out during the day and play look at me and run. We had too many owls and snakes so they left. I thought they were cute until we found out weeks later they had been getting into our garage and made nests in my car and chewed a wire that cost us a couple hundred dollars. Luckily they left. Now we leave a light on in the garage and keep it all sprayed down with anti mouse spray.

Bomb cyclone was a new one on me too. Why bomb? It doesn't even have high winds with it. It's just a large snow storm...nor'easter

533 - Let's educate others on what I actually said, shall we? From Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts, October 11, 2017:

"I don't know about the IQ's of specific individuals, but I seriously doubt that anyone can be elected POTUS unless they are pretty intelligent. It may be a specific kind of intelligence, but whatever it is, they have it. That's the political Big League."

What you've extrapolated from that until it fits something you've created in your own mind and fits your own biases is your problem. At this point you simply attribute stances to me that aren't mine, then argue against the position you made up. That's not weird at all.
