The Campaign For DA

1.24.2018

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • It looks like the Wise County Courthouse will get a metal detector for the first time in its history. If my tremendous sources are correct, the public will not be allowed to use any of the four glass courthouse doors but will instead be funneled into the basement on the Southeast corner of the building. (The basement, by the way, looks like a scene from some type of horror movie.)
  • Some, if not all, of courthouse offices have a new phone system. The screen shows the current weather and, get this, the next county holiday.
  • Want to see the stitches after back surgery? BagOfNothing's wife posted a picture. That's not too bad. 
  • "Five months after opposing a motion to recuse 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother in the case of a Twin Peaks defendant, prosecutors from McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna’s office filed a last-minute motion Monday morning to remove Strother from hearing two bikers’ cases." That DA's office continues to scared and way in over their heads. 
  • On Twitter, I'll see high school athletes tweet all the time, "I'm happy to announce I have received my sixth offer from [Baylor/UT/TCU/etc.]"  What they mean is that they have already received five offers from different schools and a new one has entered the mix. But it sounds like he's received six offers from one school. Drives me nuts. 

  • A Texas DA asked local cops for help by asking them to review the list of potential jurors for those that would be inclined to impose the death penalty in an upcomng capital murder case. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with that. (There was an allegation that at least two potential jurors had been contacted by the cops. There would be something seriously wrong with that.)
  • Watched some testimony in a DWI case yesterday where the defendant said she was brought up to "never trust cops" and "always say no." Let's see how that plays out. 
  • Toys R Us is going to close 182 stores.  #winning
  • Irving based Kimberly Clark will layoff up to 5,500 people. #winning
  • Last night, with 25 seconds remaining, OU tried to finish off #5 Kansas by launching a three pointer. As the ball arched and headed towards the rim, this happened:
  • I'd have to research it, but off the top of my head I'm not sure taking a BB gun to school is illegal. You can't bring a "firearm" to school but "firearm" is defined as "any device designed, made, or adapted to expel a projectile through a barrel by using the energy generated by an explosion or burning substance or any device readily convertible to that use." Texas Penal Code 46.01(3) and 46.03. If I'm wrong, I'm confident I will be told shortly. (I'm assuming it's one of those BB guns that you cock or pump instead of powered by a CO2 cartridge.)
  • We've had two school shootings this week. And it is Wednesday. 
  • Sooooo Texas
  • No way! Seriously, that can't be true.:
  • Mueller now wants to question Trump. If his lawyers let Trump do it, they should be disbarred for incompetence.

Why haven't you shared links to the crazy videos involving that kook Kokesh on youtube? One where a guy supporting him goes and hangs out at the jail parking lot and Sheriff Akin comes out there to chat with the guy. Another where two crazies go into the jail entry area and confront some poor jailer there doing her job. Then a guy records a phone conversation with kooky Kokesh while he's in the jail. Are these like Jim Jones and David Koresh followers or what? Major sheesh!!!!

There are winners and losers everyday. Businesses go out of business many times because they can't figure out how to adjust to changing markets.
And of course Barry knows that. But if fits the lib narrative to only point out losers and use that as some sort of proof that this administration is failing. Idiocy at it's finest!

LIbs too dumb to get it. Trump is 4d chess player and will own the Russia fake news excuse for Democrats losing election in an interview with Mueller

Did you even read the article about the layoffs at Kimberly Clark? Complete libtard thing there Barry Boy. READ IT

Barry, have you tried that google search using those keywords I suggested a couple of weeks ago?
What is find amusing is your eagerness to bring to light any potential illegal act at a local or state level but seem at the same time to be completely blind to acts and actors at the federal level committing crimes, that should in reality be stripped from headlines in some place like Zimbabwe.
Let's review.
Sitting US AG omits/ destroys evidence during Fast- Furious investigation.
Lorner intentionally deletes emails before the investigation for usin the long arm of the IRS to punish conservative groups.
Hillary admitted using Bleachbit and taking a hammer to hard drives to destroy crucial evidence.
And now we have high up, biased FBI officials that claim 5 months of texts during a critical time period have been corrupted or gone missing.
Along with the appearance of a "secret society" ensconced to cover up said evidence.
Pertaining to Triumps counsel - what I find enlightening, and you should too- is that no attempts by Trump or his counsel to slow walk any files or the use of Executive Privilege has not been invoked. What has been happening - is he has been playing the rope out- and he knows that Mueller in the end would end up overturning the rock with the snakes under it.

If a political ad shows a gun or a bible or states where he/she goes to church they have lost my vote.

But everyone keeps saying this is Trump's economy and anything that happens is due to him. If anything our dark overlord is just being consistent.

ALL HAIL THE DARK GREEN LORD.

Does Barry really blame Trump for the Toys-R-Us store closings? Stupid or liar?

Damn green you really have a chapped ass about high school athletes bragging on Twitter about college offers. Give em their day. Hell in 5 years every one of them will be strung out in some motel room in Harry Hines waiting on their next welfare check.

Toys R Us failing has nothing to do with the past year and more to do with out of date company model nice try though. But if you want to bring up bankrupt companies go back to the 8 years previous. #Winning now!

Re: In-N-Out...the article states that the $160k figure includes health insurance, vision, 401k and dental. So I can see where that could total $160k...but also that's not how salaries are reported anywhere so it's incredibly misleading. Their stores are also mostly in California, so you're looking at an increased cost of living which factors into that average.

After figure in cost of living and benefits, this is the equivalent of a salary of $85k in DFW. Which still seems high for a manager of a fast food restaurant, but not nearly as high as $160k.

I'm not the type person to throw around epithets like "libtard," but I have to agree with those who can see that the Toys R Us thing has been years in the making. Youtube is lousy with videos from the past two years talking about their problems and how they won't make it.
I guess when the inevitable happens and Sears is finally kaput, that will be Trump's fault as well. Or maybe President Pence.....

Hey 930 to be still winning he would have to have started winning, and anyone with common sense can see that he is far from even starting to win.

Entering the courthouse from the basement? Even folks called for jury selection? Imagine now the scene of a crowd waiting to board that old rickety elevator. This sounds like a nightmare of a plan. Four glass doors closed to the public? So metal detectors can't be installed on them? Somebody in the know please explain that one. Can it not be done or is it forbidden by the Texas Historical Commission?

Hey economic guru...you ALWAYS have companies and sectors of economy that fall off due to competition, shifts and trends, and advancements. Always. For every job lost at the typewriter factory years ago, two jobs were added at the computer factory, and so forth.

Sam's Club closed too! Wells Fargo closed branch banks. How many closed businesses in Bridgeport? Lower tax revenues in county still impact budgets, no money for extra deputies. Guess Trump winning other places, not here!

I wish the county would stop spending money. My taxes keep going up and they spend it as fast as they get it. Do we really need metal detectors?

How did bonuses to big corporations benefit any of us! If corporations lowered the price of their services or products to consumers, many would benefit! A one time bonus is peanuts compared to the windfall from big tax cuts that increase the debt, forcing borrowing to keep government running. Increases spending more on interest, raises interest rates and increases cost of goods and services. Noticed when you go to the grocery store increased prices since last year? Did you get an increase in wages to offset inflation? After you pay more for groceries, higher property taxes, more for health care insurance, how much are you going to have left to buy your Amazon wish list? Winning some, not much. And your tax cuts expire while the big corporations go on to the end of the world!

Why Decatur has fancy school stuff is simply because Southlake.

Parenthetical commas were taught in English class, not during athletics.
"I'm happy to announce I have received my sixth offer, from Baylor."
What you say? "If we had a new weight room and a coffee shop, I could stay awake long enough for the tutor to explain that to me."
