The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • Have I said I'm going to retire to the jungle in Costa Rica?
  • There is a commercial on The Ticket which begins with references to your destiny. Paraphrasing: "How do you want to be remembered? A good guy? A good friend?" And then it goes on to tell you that's not enough. That you need to be "King of the Hill": Let me tell you something, the first part is enough. 
  • From the Update this morning which updates us all on Wise County news: "TRAILER FALLS ON MAN – A man was flown to Medical City Denton from the intersection of Farm Road 407 and Martindale Lane in New Fairview after a double-wide mobile home fell on him Wednesday morning."
  • Question for the masses: Do these things work better than a mop? I'm on a floor cleaning mission.
  • A navy jet crashes off of Key West and kills two. (This happens so often.)  Fox News immediately blames Obama.

Barry, you were piddling in the driveway? You are aware that is the term some country-folk use to indicate a small child is peeing in the great outdoors? Please tell us you were not "watering the grass", so to speak. Ewwww!

Incest in Oklahoma? Well, I guess that explains some Trump voters.

I'm surprised Fox News didn't find a way to blame Hillary for the jet crash.

That Obama excuse is old. No plans after a year in office and with the "best" generals to:
1. Re-engine the old workhorse B-52
2. Fix the disaster of a new carrier that can't leave port
3. Save the best ground-support aircraft ever - the Warthog
4. Find a new reliable destroyer of the same quality as the old Spruance line
5. Re-open the F-22 line
6. Fix the F-35
7. Beef up the woefully underfunded Coast Guard

Still waiting, Mr President. And waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

And your argument would be? Ever heard of something called the budget sequestration?

In addition to your points below, the budget originates and starts in the House. And who in the world has had a majority there since, oh, 2010? Not Obama.

1. Re-engine the old workhorse B-52--this is truly a failure on his part.
2. Fix the disaster of a new carrier that can't leave port--this one pre-dates him, but is not the fault of any president. Still, our capitol ships should be a priority for any leader.
3. Save the best ground-support aircraft ever - the Warthog--this struggle has been going on since Rumsfeld tried to destroy the tool and die equipment to make replacement parts back under GWB. I love the Warthog. But its going to get phased out in favor of drones.
4. Find a new reliable destroyer of the same quality as the old Spruance line--I'm not sure what to do here. We are so far ahead of everyone in air and sub tech that I feel like we can easily keep threats at bay without destroyers. But I know that's cocky.
5. Re-open the F-22 line--the F-22 is dead, Jim. That's the whole point of the F-35.
6. Fix the F-35--this pre-dates Trump as well. But they should have a plan to fix them that does not simply throwing money at them. Once up and running all the way, though, they're going to be cheap and unstoppable. Trump did deploy them on a carrier for the first time, which was the whole point of the F-35B, but it's good to see it done.
7. Beef up the woefully underfunded Coast Guard--Sorry, no money for this. Is there a Border Guard? How about a Space Force Guard? That's where the money will go.

Blaming Obama? How many years did Obama blame George W???

Anonymous said...

Hey dipshit, stopping drugs (and their costs to the tax payers) and illegals (and their crime) from entering the US, stopping all the cash money flowing back into Mexico (and therefore leaving and spending it in the US) will many times over pay for the damn wall. You're not bright enough to see anything but the liberal bitching narrative. Go worry about keeping drunk drivers behind the wheel and stop trying to be an economist.

9:57 - I can't say how many years Obama blamed George W., but he damn sure came into office doing it. He talked about how the decisions made by the previous administration were going to impact the "tough decisions" he was going to have to make in his first State of the Union address. And his apologetic sheep spent a good eight years telling anyone who would listen that anything he was being criticized for was really a problem he inherited from George W. That said, any good sport play the hand he's dealt and he doesn't blame the dealer. Trump, and Trump's followers ought to focus on changing what needs to be changed and not blaming the fact that things need to be changed on a previous president.

The GMC commercial is: "How do you want to live? As a decent person? Not a bad guy? A good friend? Is that it — good? Of course not. King of the hill? Better. Top of your game? Win. All-powerful, like a boss, like a standard bearer, like a pro. We couldn't agree more. We are Professional Grade. GMC."

It's for their Sierra line, and came out last summer. It's always pissed me off.
A decent person who is a good friend is more than "good."

I'll take my Good Friend status, and still make Professional Grade. But the former is more important to me than the latter.

Your statement "(This happens so often.)" has no relation to fact.
Tragic, yes.
The rate of Class A mishaps is well within actuarial expectations.

If you're a good person and a good friend, and so forth...that's the top of the hill. You are correct.

Get help. You have anger issues. We should probably see about suspending your gun rights while your sanity is adjudicated.
