The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • A few months back I said there was a First Amendment issue with "revenge porn" laws. I was taught that by reading what a Houston lawyer, named Mark Bennett, wrote. Yesterday, he won an appeal where the court held the Texas revenge porn law is indeed unconstitutional. Some people have commented that Bennett, who I have never met, is arrogant and a jerk. Let me say this: If true, we need arrogant jerks who are smart lawyers to protect and defend the Constitution. 
  • Rudy Guiliani is now a part of Trump's legal "team." He is an arrogant jerk but not smart.  This will not end well.
  • I'm confused, too:
  • Presented without comment: 
  • The only people who have ever blocked me on Twitter are hard right wing conservatives. But I'll always give credit to Mark Davis (radio), Robert Jeffress (shyster pastor), and Ed Bark (TV critic) for never blocking me despite me disagreeing with them. (And never mess with Ed Bark. He will engage and destroy you.)
  • That being said, everyone should consider giving up social media. 
  • Throw in that Texas congressman Farenthold quit because he used taxpayer dollars to settle a sexual harassment case, and this story becomes something right out of the National Enquirer. I present to you the party of family values: 
  • I'm all set to get my picture taken with Stormy Daniels tonight in Fort Worth but the club's website and Twitter feed says nothing about her being there. Is she still coming? They are still selling tickets via a third party but they are non-refundable. 
  • The Yellow Pages Directory was on my porch yesterday. It is a fraction of the size it used to be. If you advertise in it, you might want to rethink your advertising strategy. But I glanced through it to see the typical insane attorney ads. I found one from Tim O'Hare. He's the former mayor of Farmer's Branch which cost the city millions in his stupid immigration fight which they lost. And he is the former head of the Republican Party of Tarrant County. But he will come to the hospital to visit you!
  • Bet: Trump will never meet with the Kim Jong Un despite his "promise" to do so.
  • Yesterday was a first for me: A good person and county employee was obviously sick. I suggested she go home. She refused because she cares about her job and is loyal. The last time I saw her she was going home, and I hope she stayed there. 
  • Photo below: Christian values, family man, and conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity at a brothel in 1990. Remember when I said I hate hypocrites and liars? 
  • I had the funnest experience of my professional career yesterday morning. I represented two rappers who just happen to be black and from Wisconsin (yep, I'm confused, too). They entered a plea to a penny-ante marijuana case. They were the most respectful and gracious clients I have ever had. I could not get them to stop saying, "Thank you, Mr. Green" because they were scared to death what a small Texas county would do to them.  But having two black guys dressed incredibly cool with dreadlocks in the Wise County courthouse caused more crazy looks from other county employees than you can ever imagine. I loved every moment. 
  • There was a meeting yesterday about a "Veterans Court" for Wise County to deal with vets' issues when they commit criminal offenses. I'm 100% for the concept. But what about a "Poor People's Court", a "Previously Sexually Abused Court", a "Discriminated Hispanic From Bridgeport Court", or a "Police Officer Who Suffers From Stress Court"? There is a huge Equal Protection issue that will eventually take down any court which gives protection to one class of people over the other. 
  • Trump will not attend Barbara Bush's funeral. That honorable family hurt his feelings during the election.  #Snowflake

I know I have had people call me wanting my business to advertise in the Yellow Pages and I wanted to laugh right in their faces. The minute one is thrown on my porch, it goes directly to the trash.

IMHO only about 10% (if that many) are actually used by people.

Dreadlocks in our county court house?..lol...and I always get a shocked feeling when I see any blacks in Decatur. I know there are some..and quite nice ones...but not many. I like it that way...now if we can just thin out the Mexicans that would be even better. Sorry to admit that; but, I believe in separation of the races and it comes natural if you leave it alone and don't insist upon pushing them together.

I wondered if that was Bennett's case. Yes, he's an excellent appellate lawyer on Constitutional issues. But yes, he's also a royal prick. My favorite part about him is that he tells everyone he'd have been rich if he'd just "gone into civil law" as if that's a thing like criminal law. Juries would absolutely hate the guy, and he'd be running cases with some of the biggest scumbags in town. He'll also turn on even his friends if he thinks he can get a blog post out of it, or somehow be a part of some inner circle.

So you see people posting nude/sexual pictures of another person, without their consent and in an effort to embarrass or intimidate them as a Constitutional issue?
Hannity visiting a brothel, as a reporter, is not the same as receiving services at a brothel.
Sitting presidents do not normally attend the funerals of former First Ladies, like BO not going to Nancy Reagan's memorial.

She was wise to get the money and run. It’s been fairly clear for some time that Giuliani is knee-deep in the Trump-Russia scandal. In the last days of the election he bragged that he knew a faction of the FBI was about to screw over Hillary. After the election, Trump declined to nominate Giuliani for a cabinet position because he'd become so radioactive. Giuliani later tried and failed to prevent a Turkish criminal named Reza Zarrab from cutting a Trump-Russia plea deal. Rudy knows the hammer is about to drop on him, and he’s frantically trying to buddy up to Donald Trump in the hope of getting a pardon that’s never coming or he has already cut a plea deal and this is his attempt at becoming Robert Mueller’s man on the inside. Take your pick.

Of course, Trump isn't attending Barbara Bush's funeral on SATURDAY! Trump has a 10:am tee time at Mar-a-Lago, on SATURDAY! No doubt the Bush family took that into consideration when they selected Saturday.

Just an aside: Where is all that Republican outrage regarding the POTUS who spends a LOT of time on a golf course?

"disclaimer: personally, I don't give two spits what/who the POTUS does in their spare time. I never minded when Obama golfed and I don't mind that Trump golfs."

As for someone posting "revenge porn." How did so many people fail to get the memo regarding the fact that they can't expect/require other people to be better at keeping private their personal secrets/matters than they were? IF you don't want nekkid pictures, of you, posted on the Interweb, don't take/send them to ANYONE, EVER! The same can be said for your secrets. If you don't want your secrets told then don't tell your secrets to ANYONE, EVER!

From a long ago Reddit post, supposedly someone at the McLennan courthouse ordered from a catalog years ago, but the picture wasn't clear. All they knew was it matched the size and color they needed for the handles. When the handles showed up in the tropical totem motif, the facilities people said screw it and put them up. At least that's the story they tell.

Congrats to the pup. All of my pups have been honor roll grads of the same school. Always interesting to me that really involved pet parents go to such lengths to have well behaved pets. Wish the majority of parents felt the same about their human children. Constantly encounter children of all ages in public with their parents. who have not been taught respect for their parents let alone others. . Does the children a disservice for their future not to mention ruin the experience for those of us around them. My parents taught us to follow their commands and we passed that on to our children who have passed it on.

"The minute one is thrown on my porch, it goes directly to the trash."

You really should recycle.

"Hannity visiting a brothel, as a reporter, is not the same as receiving services at a brothel."

Uber-Christians should not be anywhere near one, except to try and convert people. God can save a hooker, but Hannity was there to bang one.

Of course, hardly any of us are 'good' Christians. We're all broken. The difference is that some of us understand that and try to be better. Others only tell others they should be better.

Which leads me to...

"Remember when I said I hate hypocrites and liars?"

I believe I said it. You said I was right.

Two residents in Glen St. Mary, Florida, turned the tide on seven home invasion suspects by opening fire with an AR-15 and a 9mm handgun.

One of the alleged suspects was killed, another hospitalized, and a third was treated and released to police.

News4Jax reports the incident occurred around 4 a.m. Sunday when the suspects kicked in the door, claiming to be from the sheriff’s office. Three residents were at home at the time, and two responded by opening fire. The resident with the AR-15 estimates he fired 30 rounds by himself.

And the liberals always ask why do you need a magazine with 30 rounds?

Hey Skippy, STAY WOKE! I have to say, I've just about had it with Trump. I've tried to defend him and his kind for long enough, but the Christian in me won't allow it any more. The latest headline pushed me over the hump. I should've voted for HRC in 2016 and I regret my vote. I'll be voting for anyone but Trump in 2020.

Here is my BG-like theory on North Korea. The entire thing is scripted with North Korea. From Trump's tweets (Little Rocket Man) to the final meeting. Both leaders will return home and spin it as a huge diplomatic victory right before the upcoming November elections.

I love this label thrown out from leftists about the right: "party of family values".
Family values = showing respect & courtesy towards others, standing up for others, using clean language, living the golden rule, believing in equality, patriotism, freedom, respecting the law, commitment to excellence, financial security, productivity, education, reverence for God, church attendance, abstinence before marriage and fidelity after, proper dress and appearance, honesty, being trustworthy, integrity, possessing gratitude, being positive, good work ethic etc.

Anytime you call the right "the party of family values", you are inferring that the left is not the party of family values. In other words, that the left does not believe in any of those things that comprise "family values". Very interesting!

Agree with you and 8:56 about Mark Bennett. Arrogant prick, but probably the best First Amendment lawyer in the state.

In a post this same date you said something about Hannity being a hypocrite, and a liar. "Let me say this: If true, we need arrogant jerks who are smart lawyers to protect and defend the Constitution" Does the 2nd Amendment mean anything to you?
