The Campaign For DA

3.22.2018

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Mark Zuckerberg was on CNN last night and did not do well. The reason is that he suffers from social anxiety.  Back when Facebook was just getting big, he gave an interview before a crowd at SXSW and famously began sweating profusely. 
  • No one, and I mean no one, wants a video to start automatically playing when you visit a website. 
  • I said this a few years back: Driverless cars, which will absolutely replace the modern day cars in the future, will have an amazing impact on the economy. Think of all the jobs that exist because of the lack of wrecks, speeding, etc. that will go away. Both in the public and private sector.
  • Yesterday was an incredibly heavy news day. Let's check in on Fox News. (Uh, "moved Stateside?"): 
  • Let me translate this for you: The Feds were in charge of that investigation in Austin (they were the only agencies who had obtained a warrant two days ago from a federal judge), but every elected official in Texas is trying to be in the spotlight. 
  • Here's another example. The Texas Attorney General's office has no idea what goes on in the trenches of local police work. And I've seen it firsthand. The only two times they were in charge of prosecutions in Jack County and Wise County in the last twenty years, they got thrashed. Yet now Greg Abbott is an expert on police:
  • Mrs. LL turned up Margaritaville in the car the other day because she knows I hate it with a passion. She laughed. I laughed. 
  • "There is no evidence of collusion!" - Something heard on Fox News and silly radio shows every day.  I can't tell you the number of times I've thought I was in good shape representing someone until there was an indictment and the prosecutor handed over the file. You never know everything they know until they tell you. 
  • She might beat him:
  • Well, I guess they think we should legalize drugs. Laws don't mean anything?:
  • Let's check in Trump's mental health this morning. Oh, my! He truly is an immature sixth grade boy. 
  • But I would pay money to see a UFC fight between Trump, with Putin in his corner, and Biden, with Obama in his corner.
  • The Austin bomber left a 25 minute "confession" on his phone. What follows is an odd statement by the Austin PD Chief. The bomber's life appears be that of an average person. Every single one of us has been "challenged" as children, teens, young adults, and adults. Yet we don't go out and randomly kill people. And no mention of hate or terror. 
  • A reference to something I heard on the radio this morning that I haven't thought about in years: Mapsco

the bon guy mentioned mapsco in a post a few weeks ago in relation to an xfiles episode. the episode focused on humanities reliance on technology and mulder's gps on his phone died so he used an old mapsco.

I still have a Mapsco that shows a lot of Frisco as farmland. Not anymore.

And Biden is acting like a 6th grade boy as well yet no criticism?

Hate to tell you BG, it Putin would wipe the floor with everyone all by himself. That’s one bad mofo. Although Trump would have to tag him in immediately, because he couldn’t make it across the mat to catch Biden’s footwork.

I hope Nixon is as good as she’s billed. I’m leery of celebs in politics. But she’s damn funny, and if they underestimate her she will bite them in the ass. This is not her first campaign. It is just her first candidacy.

As long as I am alive, there will be at least one car driven by a human. And I wil jack with the AI in the other cars just because.

I find it funny that Democrats made fun of Republicans when we elected Trump because he was a "celebrity." Meanwhile, they are busy pushing people like Cynthia Nixon to run. What are her qualifications besides being a "celebrity?"

wordkyle said...

So with the Austin bomber we focus on the individual perpetrator rather than the method he used to kill people. Right.

"Laws don't mean anything?" you asked, clearly implying they do. Except immigration laws, right?

SpanishWarDonkey said...

None, best I can tell. That said, her tweet had zero grammatical errors and came across as being written by an adult, so a far cry from our President.

The Trump crowd complaining forever about "Hollywood Libs" is just funny, because by voting for captain dipshit, you opened the floodgates for celebrity politicians. We're going to have a Kanye West presidency one day, so thanks for that.

I've read several articles on the Austin bomber, but cant find any proof he was a conservative, other than the media labelling him that in their headlines.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Video of a deadly self-driving vehicle crash in suburban Phoenix shows a pedestrian walking from a darkened area onto a street just moments before an Uber SUV strikes her.

Taking drugs out of the hands of legal users won't fix the drug problem, will it Barry? Can you point out the spot in the constitution that guarantees all citizens to have drugs without infringement? We already have laws against committing harmful acts with firearms. Kinda like drugs, huh?

I would pay good money to see a 5 second fight between Putin and Obammy!!

Skippy, do you hear on Fox News and silly radio shows every day all the evidence of ham sandwiches colluding with Russia? No, you only hear that on MSNBHeeHaw, CBS, NBC, CNN, and ABC. Stay Woke!!

10:28, That would not be a fight between Putin and Obammy, it would be murder the first second when Putin snapped his pencil neck.

I completely agree. I avoid websites that do that.

A Communist, an Islamist, and a traitor walk into a bar.
The bartender says:

I usually read this blog and laugh out loud! Today is no exception. I love when you report on President Trump as an immature 6th grade boy and completely leave out how this started!
I seemed to also miss where you called out Hillary for insulting half the women in this country and doing it in a country that is still living in the dark ages when it comes to women's rights and their value in society!

You sir are a liar and a hypocrite!

But I do agree with you one one point today. I too would like to see that match between Trump/Putin and Obama/Biden. But I'm pretty sure your thought of the outcome is different. How I see it....Putin gets in the ring with Obama, Obama falls in his corner, crying like a little girl. Biden won't tag in! Fight over and Trump still talking to the ring girl.

10:02 Did you read his blog? Seems pretty conservative to me...

“President Obama called Russian President-elect and Prime Minister Putin to congratulate him on his recent victory in the Russian Presidential election,” the Obama White House said in a statement late that Friday."

101 - I don't disagree with you. Did you think I would?

Of course, when someone is accused of a crime, we're supposed to presume innocence until they're proven guilty. Do you agree with that?

Did you hear the one about the Nazi, a pathological liar, a bully a fake Christian, a rapist and an egomaniac walking into a bar?

Yes, I heard it twice in one day.

I'm not sure how I feel about Cynthia Nixon, but I loathe Cuomo. The guy seems to be the very embodiment of corrupt NY politics.

And that's not easy for me to say, because as a teenager, I loved hearing his father speak. Mario was inspirational.

There's still time for Andrew to end up in jail.
