The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • Let's check in on Trump's mental health this morning. Uh, oh: 
  • And that one replaced his first attempt (at 5:42 a.m EST.) when he went with "Alex" and "dieing": 
  • And Another (Florida):
  • And Another (Idaho):
  • Someone commented yesterday that there might be more to this Atmos fiasco over in Dallas than just shifting soil. Atmos will inspect people's homes and make repairs inside the home. They have no obligation to do that. That's like you asking your water supplier to fix a leaky pipe in your bathroom. Did Atmos do something wrong? Is it possible to over-pressurize natural gas pipes?  There's more to this story. 
  • Also on Atmos, the logistics of relocating the residents of 2,800 homes is mind-blowing. There's no way to know how many people were living in each home. So when you are providing vouchers and/or hotel rooms to all those "living" in the restricted area, you've got a heck of a problem on your hands. And the opportunity to fraud is beyond high. ("Hey, Bill, let's say you were living with us. That way you'll get a check.")
  • Trump, unilaterally, declared he will raise tariffs on steel and aluminum. If you sell steel/aluminum you are ecstatic. If you purchase steel/aluminum or work for a company who does  (that's 99% of the rest of the country), you are screwed. Even conservatives went nuts about this attack on capitalism.
  • No. 1 Virginia was down by four with under a second to go last night and won
  • Johnny Football is working on his comeback by relaxing on vacation with his scantily clad girlfriend. 
  • Michael W. Smith will sing at Billy Graham's funeral today. I want the Vegas odds on whether or not he sings Friends.
  • Anyone know the back story on this crazy photo? Is it real? Is that really KISS?
  • Message to any prosecutor anywhere in the country when talking to the press after a big court win: Don't say, "They jury sent a clear message that [insert crime] will not be tolerated in [insert county]." At least be original.
  • Looks like the Wise County D.A.'s office has another murder case on their hands. 
  • Every school in West Virginia will remain closed today due to a teacher's strike. That's the fifth straight day. West Virginia may be one of our most Wheels Off states, but their teachers sure are organized.

“At least be original”. That’s hilarious coming from a hack that parrots liberal talking points incessantly.

Trump’s complaint about steel would make more sense if his buildings weren’t built from imported steel...

"West Virginia may be one of our most Wheels Off states, but their teachers sure are organized." Two conditions that are not necessarily unrelated.

Well, of course he announced that tariff ... I mean, what the hell else is he gonna do to distract attention from the toilet bowl spiral his administration is in?

According to KRLD, Atmos is paying out $250/day per home, regardless of the number of occupants. So "Bill" is out of luck.

"...scantily glad girlfriend... Billy Graham's funeral... Vegas odds..."

The proximity of those words to each other says a lot about this blog. Ha!

Atmos is currently requiring a photo ID with an address in the affected area, according to those folks' postings on my Nextdoor. Atmos trucks were stalking my neighborhood last night with devices to detect any leaks up here, after one of my neighbors noticed that the rainwater in one of the many alley potholes was bubbling.

Atmos is actually working in good faith. They can point to shifting soils, largely from unchecked development that effects the natural absorption or rainfall into limited "soft" areas, increasing the shift.
By providing vouchers, replacing lines, and even offering to check and repair the gas lines of the affected customers, they are taking responsibility for the situation and hopefully, cutting down on the number of plaintiffs in future lawsuits who actually suffered no damage. If Atmos is brining in 120 crews, you can bet a caravan of 600 lawyers headed to the same neighborhood.

She's got to be dating Manziel for the notoriety right? I clicked your link to her photo and ended up perusing her Twitter feed and clicked like on a couple. It worked. It helps that she's damn fine.

I don't know why all you people get your bowels in an uproar about student/teacher sex. Back in the day, if only there were those opportunities, there is no way we would tell. We would call telling 'pissing in your Post Toasties'. That being said, what is the problem of the teacher helping the student decide his sexuallity? Don't you insist that he is old enough to decide what gender he is? Why not old enough to decide his sexual preference? Sounds like those teachers are just performing a public service.

The explosion of the house happened INSIDE the home, what soil could have possibly shifted inside the house? MAYBE directly underneath, but how then would the gas leak up into the home, concentrate there, and cause such a blast? Is Atmos taking the heat/fall for something not their fault...because they have no choice?

@9:20 - "I don't know of a worse company than Atmos Energy".
Do you use Atmos Energy as your gas supplier or is your home total electric? In either case, have you EVER thanked your energy supplier for ALL those days of uninterrupted service? Do you gripe and complain only when your service has been cut off due to unforeseen circumstances? Next time your cable, gas, electricity, cell phone or whatever convenience goes out, think about how many days, weeks, months or years it's been since you were bothered by their incompetence. I hope GTG Solutions isn't late picking up your crap!

Come on Wordy, you made a true yet obvious statement. Did you have nothing else to comment on or did you simply feel a need to add a comment?

And why exactly would Manziel be subject to backhanded criticism for being at a beach with a woman? Is that not allowed? Is that bad?

Barry, yes over-pressure on line can be an issue. Anything mechanical can fail and too much pressure can be applied to a line unintentionally. Don't know if that is the case here. Soil and age of line definitely an issue. No question on that. On another utility issue, talk to anyone whose ONCOR transformer shorted and let high voltage flow directly across your home service panel. Can fry refrigerator, microwave, TV, HVAC, etc. in seconds. And you may have to re-wire home in some severe cases. Has caught some homes on fire in severe incidents. Can be real mess.

The New York Times broke McCabe’s alleged leaking to the media first. According to their “four people familiar with the inquiry,” Horowitz’s report will accuse McCabe of authorizing the leaks that led to an October 2016 piece in the Wall Street Journal that revealed on ongoing dispute about how to handle the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that had just been reopened by the discoveries on disgraced Congressman Anthony Wiener’s laptop. Among other things, the WSJ article reveals that senior Obama Justice Department officials were pressuring McCabe to discontinue their investigation.

Sorry, but call me crazy too for agreeing with President Trump on Alec Baldwin. The term mediocre is actually a gross exaggeration describing Baldwin's talent... A complete loser is probably more applicable.

I'm trying to find the article, but one owner of a company that sells pipe said that the tariffs will actually hurt his company's profit margins.
