The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • "Megachurch pastor Andy Savage gets standing ovation after admitting to sexually assaulting a 17-year-old high school student."
  • There was a Fourth Amendment case argued in the Supreme Court yesterday and the Chief Justice asked a question. Sport Spot his mistake:  [And, yes, I'll get killed for that error.]
  • I'm sure there's an explanation: 
  • The Rangers might use artificial turf in the new ballpark? Heresy.
  • The new indoor water park in Grand Prairie which has a retractable roof and is open year round actually sounds pretty cool. 
  • Chuck E. Cheese is replacing the animal band (or whatever you call it) with an "interactive light-up dance floor." 
  • I'm going to have to have hernia surgery. Is that a big deal? 
  • I watched Guess Who's Coming to Dinner again the other day. It is a timely then as it is now. 
  • I have a family member who has a friend whose father caught the flu last week and has now passed away. 
  • The only trial in the Waco Twin Peaks case ended in a mistrial. Now the attorney wants to withdraw.
  • Nick Saban winning five national titles in nine years is mind-boggling. And he'll add more. 
  • The freshman quarterback for Alabama is named  Tua Tagovailoa. Everyone struggles with the last name, but do you know what his full first name is?: Tuanigamanuolepola
  • One the Ticket boys this morning talked about seeing a UFO on vacation. He also found a video of something very similar to what he saw which occurred in Texas in December.  Weird.
  • After that live legislative negotiation session yesterday, I have no idea where Trump stands on DACA. He changes day to day.

I had hernia surgery at 19 over 25 years ago. It was a difficult few days of recovery, since they cut through abs, but has been fine since.

Surgery is always a big deal when it is on you. I don't know if they will use local anesthetic (low risk ) or a general anesthetic ( higher risk ).

Surgery to repair a hernia, possibly close to certain sensitive areas? Nah, nothing to worry about. Nothing at all. At worst, you'll now be able to sing tenor (maybe even soprano) in the church choir.

It was a Ferrari. Cameron’s dad had a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California; less than a hundred of them were made... not a Porsche.

I understand this whole "hate the sin, love the sinner" thing, but maybe Pastor Savage needs a little Old Testament judgment instead.

Chuck E. Cheese retiring the band? What timing! Trump is looking for new staffers to replace WH workers fleeing. A perfect match!

Waco Twin Peaks Cases - best argument why Sovereign Immunity should not apply to patently malicious prosecution cases like this. A big payday at the end for exonerated defendants would rein in cowboy DAs. Or get them hung by local taxpayers.

I had hernia repair when I was 40--22 years ago(discovered with my first male "wellness" checkup--ha ha!). Repaired with "mesh" (surgeon said laparoscopic often doesn't last). Took about a week before I felt "human" again and could walk without stooping over. Full recovery time was four weeks or so. Maybe there's been "advancements" since then (increased SUCCESSFUL use of laparoscopic procedures)? If so, pain and recovery time will go WAY down!

The answer you're looking for is "It was a Ferrari, not a Porsche." I'll let another film buff explain why even that answer is incorrect.

Hernia surgery, big deal. You'll wake up in recovery feeling like the Boston Bruins worked you over. Worst thing is when you're up to taking your first neighborhood walk, all the old guys come out on their lawns to tell you it won't be your last hernia. Takes about a year for you to feel normal again. Enjoy!

Decatur FBC should buy the Chuck E. Cheese band. It would entertain more than the Dallas FBC nut who will be speaking there.

The new indoor waterpark with retractable roof can't be that cool. I hear they might use artificial turf there, too. You know, for when they host other events and such

The Rangers' organization seems to be doing their best to Jerry up the new stadium...and the team

Easy to see why nobody pronounces Tua's first name in its entirety. Could you imagine trying to get through the part that comes right after "Tua"?

Cameron: The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.
Ferris: It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.

Skippy, you once said you bet that Trump didn't even know what DACA stood for. Of course he does, it stands for illegal aliens.

I always Google or Bing (I like Bing better than Google) any procedure. You can find out all you need to know there..even a video of it. I can vary a little; but you will understand the jest of it.

Don't go by those who tell you they had a hernia surgery many years ago because it changes for the better quite often these days.

Those who pass or those in the hospital usually have a serious underlying medical condition. My hubby has empysema with only 1/4 of lung capacity. His lung doctor told him if he gets a cold or the flu to go to the ER and have them call him immediately so they can start all the necessary procedures they need to do. It's very dangerous if you have conditions like this or your immune system is jacked.

Chuck E. Cheese has been doing this for a while now. Took our daughter last year to the new one by Alliance Airport. There is no robot band, just the light up dance floor.

Chuck E. Cheese only appears for about 1 minute each hour and throws out tickets to the kids. What a disappointment!

Reason #4,254 to leave a church:

Teenage parishioner: Pastor, the youth pastor just sexually assaulted me!
Assoc. Pastor: Oh, please don't tell anyone - we'll handle this "biblically" by dealing with this internally, a/k/a allowing him to resign and just take a position somewhere else, and misleading your mother by downplaying what happened so that she doesn't cause a fuss, either.

If your first instinct is to protect "the church" and not the victim, I'm not sure you're going to get that "Well done, my good and faithful servant" that you think is coming your way. And if you're a congregant who thinks a guy publicly "confessing" to assaulting a teenager makes HIM a victim who is worthy of a standing ovation, it seems like you've got some reading up on this whole Christianity thing, too.

Is it possible that the "UFOs" are just paper lanterns? That would explain the flickering and going out as they float higher.

Anonymous said...

Just to be clear- nobody thinks that retarded mongoloid Andy Savage received an ovation BECAUSE of his assault on that child- right?

Anonymous said...

The Chuck E. Cheese band was awesome! Their best hit was “ roll the pizza dough” to the tune of the cars song “let the good times roll”

The UFO is paper lanterns.

My dad and younger brother saw these lights which made the news in Phoenix 20 years ago. The only problem was they saw it in Texas. Came inside talking about the weird lights. The next day it was all over the news in Arizona.

Shouldn't the Savage Mega-molester lose his job as a pastor? What the hell?! Allowing him to stay is even more ridiculous than allowing a dog funeral in the church. Mega churches always seem to make me think WTF!
