The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Well, I survived my umbilical hernia surgery. They had some trouble cutting through my six pack, but all went well. 
  • My surgeon did bits. Once it was done he told Mrs. LL that I now had an "innie" and could wear a Speedo again. 
  • I got a prescription for hydrocodone. I took one. I haven't taken another since.  I hate that stuff. It makes me feel doped up but doesn't really change any pain. That seems to be what "pain killers" do. 
  • On Friday, a U.S Citizen and a veteran killed three workers (all of them involved in mental health treatment and two of them doctors) at a VA Center in California.
  • Someone yelled, "Does your husband play, too?" yesterday when Tiger Woods left a put short. 
  • Told ya: Per Sarah Sanders Huckabee, the meeting between Trump and North Korea will not happen unless there are "concrete and verifiable" actions by North Korea. Yep, the White House is already backing off. 
  • I'm still not sure what this was from UT's safeties coach ushering out the team for spring break:
  • I'll get my Liberally Lean March Madness Pic 'Em Tourney up later today.
  • In Trump's wheels off "rally" in Pennsylvania on Saturday (those are so weird), he said  "that allowing prosecutors to seek the death penalty for drug dealers . . . is 'a discussion we have to start thinking about. I don’t know if this country’s ready for it.'” He's the most constitutionally illiterate president in history.
  • The Bowie Jackrabbits won a state championship in basketball as did Northwest High School. Edit: I shot 50% on that bullet point.
  • A guy caught at 15.48 pound bass at Lake Fork earlier this month. I just buy lures at Walmart and throw them it the lake. What did he use?:
  • There may have never been more felony criminal trials in a two month span in Wise County than over the last two months.
  • Someone explain these American soccer attendance figures this weekend. One of these things is not like the other. 

  • Every educator in America needs to watch the 60 Minutes interview of  Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss from last night. She's clueless. For example, what does this even mean?: 
  • The dumbest lawyer in the country, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, is considering seeking an injunction to prevent 60 Minutes from airing its Stormy Daniels interview. Dude, ever heard of "prior restraint"? Ever heard of the Pentagon Papers? (Side note: What does she know? Trump normally wouldn't care about evidence of an affair. Is there something else?)

I agree about the hydrocodone. Doc gave me a large bottle of them after a broken bone surgery. I was shocked he thought I would need such a potent drug. I took them for the first few days..must have taken care of the pain or I didn't have any. Didn't make me sleepy and it caused me to have breathing problems at night. Then I started saying any old thing I wanted to people so I decided that was enough of that. Have to say they did relax my wired nerves...that's when I knew I had to stop because they could easily be an addiction for me. They are not like crack...you don't get addicted quickly...so take them if you are having pain. I find that ibuprofen does the trick for me...one of the 600 mg pills or 3 of the 200 mg every 6 hour was prescribed for me when I had muscle spasms.

"That seems to be what "pain killers" do."
"The Bowie Jackrabbits won a state championship in basketball as did Northwest High School."
Do "pain Killers" also cause you to report fake news?
Or is every other story about Justin Northwest losing the state championship game incorrect?

Northwest got beat 75-69 to Port Arthur. Sorry to say you are wrong

Hang in there Barry on the N. Korea meeting. You're just not used to a President that is looking out for our country first. The last couple of Dems that were behind the big desk, only knew how to give money away when dealing with countries that hate us. This will look much different to you. Especially the outcome.

wordkyle said...

BG, you know I don't like to insult you, but you've been throwing insults around pretty heavy for the last fifteen months; today you call DeVos "clueless," and cite her exchange with Lesley Stahl as an example.

So couldn't you yourself be "clueless," because you can't figure out what DeVos means in that exchange? Your university-trained, professionally-certified brain can't create a single idea that she might be expressing? Not one? (And we'll leave alone that you misspelled her name even though it was right there in your clip.)

Is it possible that your reasonableness dial has been de-calibrated? When every opinion is shrieked like yours have been lately, folks start to wonder about you.

Opening Arguments is a podcast and they have one on the Stormy Daniels lawsuit. If Donald Trump admits to being DD in the lawsuit, he has admitted to violating California Election Law, and also, New York adultery laws, which may impact his prenuptial agreement. If Trump denies that he is DD, then Daniels can release the texts and photos. Oh, wait, let's add obstruction of justice due to lying to the Mueller Investigation about his relationship with Daniels. Love how Republicans claim morality when their president is an adulterer, liar, and corrupt. It really highlights how far Christians actually follow their own beliefs.

Anonymous said...

What it means is that Republicans are trying to take public money and send it to private schools or even home schools. Just like the Republican ballot initiatives said.

Nice try hack. Had you expanded your sources of information past the typical liberally bias news organizations, you’d know that preconditions for the Trump-Un meeting were set from the start.

You’re not the hardest working man in the business. You’re a virtue less liberal posing as a competent lawyer.

Soccer is huge here in Atlanta. And the games are held in the new Dome, and that place by itself is an attraction like Jerry World. Tickets are also very reasonable.

Bowie won, but Northwest did not.

You're "sports genius" claim seems effected by that one hydrocodone. Northwest High School lost to Port Arthur 75-69.

Capacity or configuration for many of the MLS stadiums is about 20,000, so most of those games were also played to a full house. Lots and lots of folks in the "announced" crowd in Atlanta showed up as empty seats.

Oh, God. Now Wordkyle is defending DeVos as some sort of deep thinker, in addition to Trump being a genius. How about they are both griffters, trying to get as much money funneled to themselves and their friends as possible?

Sam Brows said...

10:04 Christians merely claim to follow Jesus Christ. Naturally they, as a group, were probably horrified about what Bill Clinton was forced to own up to, but i'm sure the ones who really follow J/C are just as horrified at the moral example set by Donald Trump. Mere morals will disappoint every time, regardless of party affiliation.

wordkyle said...

1041 - I'm going to assume that by mischaracterizing my comment you're trying to score some sort of political points, and not just stupid. If you're not just stupid, and in over your head in a discussion that you're not quite smart enough to participate in, then you are guilty of the same political shrieking that I mentioned to our host.

Go back and read my comment, see if I mentioned DeVos's thinking at all. Get back to us if my assumption was wrong and you need help reading it. I'm trying to be magnanimous here.

Shrieking out louder than BG against on taking tax money from public schools to give to private and religious schools! She said spend our tax dollars on students, not buildings! WK, what is going on since Trump was elected, makes us wonder!

Also--I'll buy any unused pain meds from you there BG. It's like Soma from A Brave New World for me. In fact, the only time I get more than four hours of sleep a night is when I'm on it.

When asked if she visits underperforming schools, DeVos' answer was "I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming." (Read: never on purpose). This is an advertisement for what the Trump administration is all about. The data, the studies, even in-person observation—any way that we have of verifying whether a policy has worked or will work—are all irrelevant. She has championed for "school choice" in MI for years with no proof that it at least does no harm (it does), and now is trying to push it nationwide.

For the record, I don't have anything against parochial schools, but do object to my tax dollars being repurposed to get public school students into private charter or parochial schools. Arguably, the public school system is one of those societal underpinnings that put this country into great power status ... and we're just going to toss one away a leg of the stool.

Barry, glad to hear you came through surgery nicely. Don't exert yourself till you've healed completely. And call me if you have some left-over hydrocodone. I'll take it off your hands.

Our public school system has been hijacked by the left and has been crumbling for years.

SpanishWarDonkey said...

BG meant clueless in that she's a theocratic millionaire that is out of touch with real people that send their kids to public schools. Damn dude, it wasn't that hard to infer.

Maybe stop speaking in vague phrases and shut up. You didn't have a point to make (defending the indefensible has got to be tiring at this point) and you did a real shit job when you came up with this garbage.

Oh the irony.

Ol Barry, would be a lot more cognitive and amenable- if only there was a Starbucks for him and his cohorts to huddle in within striking distance of Decatur.
Ordering a double latte- with racially sensitive, organic, sustainable quinoa milk does wonders for the march to Utopian harmony.

229 - You're one of the ones I spoke of. You shriek absurdities then insult anyone who might have a more reasonable (aka "not frothing at the mouth") point of view. None of your opinion refers to the passage BG cited, and which was the topic. You simply chose to insert your non sequitir ranting into a conversation rather than contribute to it. You're one of the ones I spoke of.

That hydrocodone really doesn't work for pain like ibuprofen. But it does make me dream like a Hollywood producer. It also makes me break out and itch like crazy when I take a triple dose and drink a few beers. But... the dreams!!!

I had a doctor explain to me that the idea is not to take it for a specific bout of pain, but to take it on a schedule so the pain never manifests itself to begin with. But that is totally the definition of just being doped up all the time. So, no thanks.

The hydrocodone comment seems like another veiled shot at the bon guy.

SamSon said...

@5:16 I thought the same thing last week. Bon makes a BBQ bullet point and then Barry out of the blue reminds the world again his dislike of BBQ on the same day. Funny timing and this has happened more than once with other stuff. I wonder if Bon killed his dog or something. But I'll always prefer LL over Bon because of boobs. Boobs always win.
