The Campaign For DA

3.21.2018

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Police say Austin bombing suspect, a 24 year old male white male, is dead after a wild morning, but they can't say he was acting alone.
  • Fox News embarrassed itself again last night: 
  • Birth control for men via pill? No way guys are smart enough to remember to take one of these every day.
  • I watched part of The Shining last weekend. It makes more sense every time I see it. 
  • Two county employees in the courthouse bent over backwards yesterday to help me on unrelated matters. I'm very thankful. Here's a tip for new lawyers: Treat a prosecutor's staff and judge's staff with respect. Not only is it the decent and right thing to do, but they can help you when you need it. 
  • This is clever: 
  • I don't think this is correct. Someone tell me if this is a parody account or really that of North Korea: 

  • And you tech boys, tell why the URL for my login page for my online Dallas Morning News subscription has a .uk extension.
  • Apps for Whataburger, QT, and other businesses built on convenience make no sense to me. You need to call ahead to order things from places which are designed to get you in and out as quickly as possible? 
  • Trump is in so much chaos that I missed the news that an Apprentice star, who has sued him, won in court yesterday with the judge saying that the lawsuit could go forward. Trump isn't entitled to immunity, and now he's going to have to give a deposition under oath.
  • In one office in the courthouse yesterday I had to guess the personal riddle of: (1) Today is the first day, (2) I'm going to get fat as a cow, and (3) I'll save a lot of money. I had to enlist an elected county official to help me out. (He couldn't.) Can you? 
  • And in the next 10 minutes I had a guy show me pictures of dead animals, a guy tell me of a brain tumor patient/relative who was turned away from Harris because he didn't have insurance (despite the fact he was having seizures), and had a reference to A Bad Moms Christmas
  • This guy is a brain surgeon? Even the dumbest guy in America knows you don't throw your wife under the bus.
  • The Waco DA, who got fired by voters this month, fired a felony court chief. Some in the Waco courthouse say it was because he was seen talking to the guy who beat the DA.  The outgoing DA would only say he was fired for “insubordination and not following office policy.”
  • The panic continues this morning as he watches Fox and Friends for support, comfort, and therapy: 
  • It will be in the mid-70s today while a massive snow storm has shut down D.C. Can we make that happen every day?

DPRK is a parody account, I believe run by Popehat. When he first started it he would troll various news sites and would post every time he caught one citing him as official.

I think the police have learned their lesson about claiming people act alone. I mean, if they try a person as a lone gunman, and something like DNA or a phone record exonerates him later, they can't exactly credibly claim that he had help, can they?

There are very few things that I tell associates in my office that I will outright fire them over. One is being disrespectful to clerks and coordinators. There is no room for that at all. Not only should you be good to them just because you should be good to people, but if you aren't, they can jack you up.

Didn't Austin bring in from 300-3000 "refugees" during Obama's administration?

Hooray for shutting down D.C.!! Let's do that EVERY day for a year and then maybe we can cut down on the damage they do! Shoot, I'd like the Texas Legislature to meet once every FOUR years instead of every TWO years!!

And as to Trump and that maelstrom--I've officially reached "tired head" about it ALL! :-)

"a brain tumor patient/relative who was turned away from Harris because he didn't have insurance (despite the fact he was having seizures)"

Yeah, that's complete bull hockey. Everyone knows now that Obamacare is dead everyone has 100% health care at their whim.

Real or Parody? Probably parody, based on the following:
Julie Nixon: Is now around 70, an attractive mostly-brunette, and has stayed out of politics.
New York has counties. NYC has boroughs. The only provinces in NY were in the pre-Revolutionary War times.
Nixon's 'bestial war crimes' included inheriting the war from Kennedy through Johnson, both initiating and being the POTUS in office at the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. He DID order the heavy bombings of DRV in late 1972. The Peace Accords, which had been stalemated, were signed within weeks.

One of the best RTGs of all-time.

The federal law is EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act). Passed into law in 1986. Any facility participating in Medicare must receive a patient in crisis and stabilize regardless of lack of insurance. They cannot turn them away to another hopsitals's ER (that's called dumping). They don't have to check them into a room or continue long term care after they are stabilized. They only have to intervene to stabilize (save their life). The Harris hospitals (now Texas Health Resources) all receive Medicare as one of many payment options, so would be obligated to receive the individual in the throws of seizures and stabilize (may involve tests, medication, & monitoring). They then could legally discharge patient even if they aren't in the pink of health. That's why hospitals like ObamaCare more than they hate it. Some money is better than no money on poor patients. Otherwise hospitals eat the whole bill. Must be more to courthouse story than what you were told. EMTALA violation carries big fines. Some ERs have tried to skirt around it, but eventually get caught. Plus bad press of grandma dying in ambulance while the hospital blocks her unloading at the ER. Not a good image on 10pm local news.

Fox News - an extension of Russian propaganda. All that is missing is a producer's credit for Putin in the end-of-program crawl listing folks responsible for broadcast. And supposed patriotic Americans still take that drivel as Gospel fact. Fools.

1044 - I thought Russia was our friend? Wasn't that the whole "reset" thing that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama did? Didn't Obama knowingly go ahead and let Russia meddle in our election? Didn't Obama, when he thought no one else could hear him, promise Putin that he'd have "more flexibility" to negotiate after the 2012 election?

I guess all those other media outlets are extensions of Russian propaganda, because none of them called out Obama & Co. for cahooting with Russians.

P.S. Note that none of my links above are to Fox News.

The answer to the riddle is: National Ag Day! Agriculture provides most everything we need daily! And most of your agriculture produces have a wife that works in town in order to have insurance and other benefits that being self employed do not provide.

So, Barry, if you see a farmer or a rancher today, thank them and shake their hand.

Actually, National Ag Day was yesterday, March 20!

No more than you embarrassed yourself today and everyday.

Geraldo might be right for once. - 9:35

The only thing Geraldo has ever been right about was the position and future movements of troops he gave out live on FOX News during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Pentagon promptly kicked him out of Iraq for aiding the enemy.

Skippy, sorry but we can't make that happen everyday. Man has already caused too much damage to reverse global warmism.

No Skippy, Jerry Rivera embarrased himself again last night. The guy has more botox and egg on his face than Nancy Pelosi. Stay Woke!!

Just walked by a TV in the lobby of the building and stopped to look at the crawl at the bottom of the screen. Please explain to me how we've arrived to the point where "porn star" "playmate" "reality star" "president" and "legal jeopardy" all fit in a sentence?!?

This is the kind of stuff we'd giggle about when hearing it about other countries. Now we're giving a bad name to the banana republics of the world.

Ya know, it is kind of a problem that presidential briefing papers ("DO NOT CONGRATULATE") get leaked, but it's also kind of a problem that he routinely blows off his advisors and just wings shit. I mean, Putin stole his election fair and square, tried to kill a couple of expat Russkies in the UK, launched an information warfare campaign in our elections and others, why not be nice to him? Unless of course Putin has tapes of a whore pissing on you.

All good points. Also, FWIW, one of my father's clients told him of his own father's inability to find a hospital that would admit him for a stroke - but only because ALL of the area hospitals were full as a result of the high number of criticality ill flu patients.

"P.S. Note that none of my links above are to Fox News."

So, it is possible that the "mainstream news media" *is* objective? (Although, to be fair, one of your links is to am editorial, which is opinion - usually based on one sided "facts".)

119: "So, it is possible that the "mainstream news media" *is* objective?" - No, usually the mainstream news media *aren't* objective. They have been pro-Democrat and anti-everyone else for decades, and moronically so since 2016. But even a blind dog finds a bone once in a while.

I thought it necessary to quote the blind dogs since you feel so strongly about Fox News. And I guess you're still up in the air as to whether Russia is friend or foe, right?
