The Campaign For DA

2.07.2018

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • He got weed! WFAA did a segment on the recent marijuana busts in Wise County.
  • I knew Wise County's state senator Craig Estes had a heck of an opponent in Pat Fallon, but I didn't know there was a third candidate in the race: A guy who owns the the Old Nocona Boot Factory. Just a third name one the ballot might be enough to put that election into a runoff.
  • I'd think that the Cavs would trade Lebron right now. He's leaving after the season anyway, they are awful, they could get a fortune for him in draft picks from a contending team, and Lebron, in waiving his no trade clause, would at least get some Cleveland love by pointing out that, "I didn't want to leave without this town getting something in return."
  • Good grief. America has its own little "Rocket Man": 
  • Who else liked military parades? I can't quite put my finger on it.
  • Man, the Copelands sure have been in the news a lot lately. And I wonder why her plan didn't work when 21 people in the congregation came down with the measles in 2013.
  • I've mentioned this before and the speed is increasing: Branch banks are shutting down. For the 12 months prior to June, 2017, there were 1,700 which were shut down. There is basically no reason to go to the bank for routine transactions. (I finally started using the "deposit by phone" technology -- something that makes no sense to me.)
  • And Another (Connecticut):
  • I stole this: Breaking Bad had an alternative ending where Walter White went into a witness protection program as Gordon Lightfoot.
  • Nunes now admits that the FISA search warrant affidavit did indicate that some of the information it is based upon might be "political". But since it was in a footnote, he didn't think it was good enough. So he's upset about the size of the font? 
  • Big Las Vegas news: 
  • The principal at Northwest High School, and former teacher in Rhome, faces a second DWI charge.

I'm guessing your opinion is the marijuana related warrants were illegal though.

The French do military parades quite often, where Trump got the idea!!!

FDR and many enjoy military parades. Only an idiot would compare that to Hitler.

Well -- Barry has officially moved to the far left nutwing part of his party. To equate Trump to Hitler has put him in the insane category. You have just done away with any amount of seriousness you had left.

Be warned if you're cruising down 287 with out-of-state plates. You better not be "following too closely" or "driving in the left passing lane" or they'll have a german shepherd scratching your door paint.

re: And Another - NOT GUILTY! (but very jealous)

Seriously, 18 and 22? There was no sexual assault. It was 2 consenting, horny adults. Absolutely no reason to vilify her and ruin the rest of her life with a sex offender tag. Fire her and move along. Nothing to see here.

Yes, other Presidents have had military parades... after winning a war. It's been tradition to keep the military doing military things instead of wasting their time (and money) rolling out the troops and hardware for a political parade. Hitler wasn't the best comparison. Putin would be much more accurate.

Saw Decatur's finest tearing a U-Haul apart on 287 the other night. I'm sure they were very careful to put things back exactly the way they found them.

The teacher is 22. The "victim" is 18. The relationship is consensual.

Sexual assault charges in that case are ridiculous.

Craig Estes has a flyer out accusing Fallon of laying on the beach and goofing off a lot and missing lots of votes in the legislature. Since I wish the Texas Legislature would meet only once in FOUR years instead of two, I think I'm for Fallon!! :-)

I totally agree 9:12, Barry is way out of line. I mean, Hitler could give a good speech and build a good road. So far, Trump sucks at those.

That Steve Wynn story is really having repercussions. "Returning this dirty money should be a no-brainer," said Republican Party Chair Ronna (Romney) McDaniel.

Man, it really does give you a glimmer of hope about politics to see the GOP taking such swift action to separate itself from Steve Wynn's bad actions, and to take such a strong stand against harassment.

Wait, what's that you say? This is her quote about Dems and Weinstein? And the GOP isn't giving back a dime of Wynn's "dirty" money?

Oh, yeah. That sounds about right.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Since you're an expert on Constitutional law, wasn't Obammy supposed to seperate himself from the FBI in investigating his Secretary of State?

Triple Fake... said...

The "and another" victim is 18, so presumably he graduates this spring? If they felt that strongly about each other, why couldn't they wait 5 months to apply the glue to their relationship, so to speak. It would be perfectly legal then. I agree that sexual assault charges are too harsh for a consensual encounter with an adult student, but a student/teacher relationship is inappropriate regardless of his age or the age difference

Trump drives the news, talking about a parade not what action Congress and the white house must take to protect the 2018 election from Russian meddling.

Defense Secretary Mathis is trying to scrape every penny for the military, Congress is going to pass a spending bill increasing spending over 500 billion to from last year increasing the debt 1 trillion. The parade will cost millions.

The parade will celebrate the end of World War1. No veterans are going to march in the parade! So spending millions for military and military weapons to be shipped to Washington, march in review of the commander in chief just because he likes a parade is a foolish waste of time and tax payer money.

Displays of nationalism can be misinterpreted by foreign countries and reminders of past authoritarian leaders.

Instead of rolling Abrams tanks and missiles down Pennsylvania Avenue tearing up the asphalt, why cant El Supremo go to several military installations and do a full military pass in review, as well as a tour of facilities? Honor our troops in their place of work in front of their families? Maybe that's just too simple an answer for his mind. Or maybe the parade is not about honoring our troops at all. Maybe it for some other reason altogether. Wonder what it could be?

Military parade and a jingoistic President? Mexico may want to build a wall on their side of the border to protect against the future invading American army. Trump re-taking Chapultepec Castle! Monterrey and Mexico City, here we come!

I'm okay with Donald Trump's military parade as long as he marches the full parade distance at the head of the troop column. After all, he is Commander-In-Chief. He should lead the troops. Any bets on how far he would make it?
