The Campaign For DA

2.24.2018

Oh, The Irony


This is the guy running against Craig Estes. I'm no fan of either. But Fallon is a dangerous far right wing nutcase.

His above post demonstrates he hasn't been to a movie house that serves dinner and drinks lately. Heck, maybe even a regular movie house in Frisco lately.

From the Wichita Falls Times Record News:

“I’m not going to apologize for having a little bit of success.”

The three-term representative for Frisco is giving up his House seat as of Dec. 31, 2018, to challenge against Estes. Fallon had about $1.4 million on hand to bludgeon all comers when he filed his Jan. 15 report with the Texas Ethics Commission. He has loaned his campaign $1.8 million.

And since we are talking about money: "State legislators in Texas make $600 per month, or $7,200 per year, plus a per diem of $190 for every day the Legislature is in session (also including any special sessions). That adds up to $33,800 a year for a regular session (140 days), with the total pay for a two-year term being $41,000." 

That is, obviously, $20,500 per year.

So what's the return on investment (comparing how much a movie house makes on a Coke) for being a run of the mill Texas senator?

Did someone complaining about the high cost of fountain drinks really set you off like this?

Nut cases get set off all the time over trivial matters, WK.

Don't forget that legislators earn pensions, accrued at the same rate as though they were earning the same as a district judge.

You need help Barry. Get off my lawn. Damn Pete Delkus. Damn hidden ads in news stories. I hope you don't act this way at home.

Imagine being his wife/date....geez....wonder how crappy he made her feel for wanting something to drink. Nothing warms a woman's heart more than her date carrying a chip around because he had to spend a couple extra bucks on her.

Breaking News: HISTORY was made in a dramatic, unbelievable, historic history-making event that we'll never forget and we'll never be the same and will remember this for the rest of our lives. Alexander Hausch, the pusher of German sled number two jumped into the 4 man bobsled .0004 faster than any other German wearing red over black on his uniform in an Olympic year ending in 8 after eating more than 4 waffles and bacon for breakfast. HISTORY was made, according to NBC.

The comment reveals a lot about the millionaire and how he thinks. High prices for popcorn and drinks at a movie theater is wht ticket prices are lower than refreshments, it has nothing to do with the cost of the product! Just like ordering iced tea at the restaurant or a cocktail at happy hour. I bet Fallon is so stingy he only gives a 10% tip!

He is just another Dan Patrick who will destroy our public schools and push a right wing agenda, not a business friendly one. I don't like Estes, but I'm not voting for Fallon no matter how much Atkin Nd Burns like him.

Teachers are organized to block vote and Fallon is not for teachers.

If Burns likes him then that's reason enough to vote against him!
