The Campaign For DA

4.02.2018

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Here's a question that neither dad or I could answer: Are the precinct lines in Wise County ever redrawn? And are they based on population? If so, you would think they would be redrawn every 10 years with the census. 
  • According to the Bridgeport Index, a customer's computer exploded in the Dairy Queen last week. 
  • Stephon Clark, the guy who was murdered in his back yard by police in Sacramento, was shot eight times with six of them being in the back according to an autopsy.
  • The cop who shot a Baton Rouge man at point blank range was no billed by a grand jury. Then the chief of police fired him anyway. He had been on paid leave since the incident in July of 2016 (which is a nice gig if you can get it.) 
  • For some reason, the federal government decided to prosecute the wife of the killer in the Orlando Pulse nightclub shootings. On Friday, they lost. Look at this statement from a former U.S. Attorney from South Carolina: 
  • Those pipe bombs found in Wise County made me think of this old story which gets more bizarre every time I read it. (I'm not saying they are related, it just made me think of it.) 
  • Even if you don't care about women's basketball, that UConn/Notre Dame semi-final was as good as it gets. Edit: I wrote that on Saturday as a draft. Then the championship game happened last night and trumped it. (Last shot here.)
  • This is from the Dallas Morning News on Friday in article about how housing is unaffordable for so many young people. I find this number shocking. The "D-FW area" is massive: 
  • Fox News' Tucker Carlson (who still has "dumb face" because he never closes his mouth) interviews Fabio about the politics in California. #Idiocracy
  • Baylor paid ex-coach Art Briles $15.1 million after his dismissal because of the school's sexual assault scandal. President Ken Starr got $4.5 million.  We'll never know what Briles knew. We will always know that Starr is incompetent. 
  • Trump's lawyer, the one responsible for this Stormy Daniels fiasco, graduated from Cooley Law School. It has often been referred to as the "worst law school in America."  A buddy of mine once referred to it as the Mel Cooley Law School. (You've got to be old to get the joke.) 
  • The head of the EPA has been living in an apartment for $50 a night -- an apartment owned by an energy lobbyist. And he only had to pay when he stayed there. You kidding me? (That's the same guy had been the focus of his first class travel -- including a trip to London at taxpayers' expense where he went to Wimbledon.)
  • I still love that the girls team from Bridgeport High School went back to the name of "Sissies" a few (many?) years back.  They were called that originally because the men's team was known as the "Bullies" -- not "Bulls" as they are now. If my memory serves me correctly, the girls were known as the "Lady Bulls" for a few years but that didn't make much sense. 
  • Trump hands me gold every day. This is too easy. The only thing more white is the Klan or the Proud Boys. Oops . . .  .Trump did throw in one token African-American and put him at the end of the row. I apologize. 
  • Ted Nugent on the Parkland high school survivors: "The lies from these poor, mushy-brained children who have been fed lies and parrot lies . . . . The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity."  The good thing is they have no idea who he is. 
  • As of yesterday, twenty-three Republican Congressmen have said they won't seek re-election. Thirteen others have not said they won't quit but are running for a different office. 
  • Man, people are bent out of shape after the live performance of Jesus Christ Superstar last night.

I think County Road mileage has something to do with the precinct lines in Wise County.

The girls' team was called the Lady Bulls for a while, which makes as much sense as Lady Rams, the team they played the other day.

You got a week's worth of RTGs on a Monday.
Try not to screw it up the rest of the week.

Yes precinct lines are redrawn. That is why north Bridgeport is now in precinct 2. Try to keep up.

I wonder if a black person working in the Trump White House would receive any feedback from their friends and family?

That intern photo looks like they literally put the black guy in at the last minute. His chair is outside the lines of how the group is posed.

Barry, I'm surprised you didn't mention anything about this story today.

The horrific cliff plunge of eight people off an isolated northern California highway, and now the revelation that it was likely intentional, ought to raise questions about political correctness, given the abusive backdrop. What we had here was a lesbian couple virtue-signaling with six adopted black children, who used them publicly for political purposes and then abused them back home, before eventually driving them all off a cliff in a Thelma and Louise-style dramatic climax.

Hey Skippy, at least they didn't shoot them in the back 6 times.

I guess there is a certain level of incompetency to be the president of Baylor.

Tucker Carlson interviewed Fabio.
This is too easy Barry.
Anyone at CNN interviewing Maxine Waters.

You're a putz. Seriously.

Funny you bring up Fabio ... saw somewhere else that Saturday was the 19th anniversary of when he took that rollercoaster ride in North Caroline and had the birdstrike and came down with a bloody nose.

12:01- I know you got that Trump approval from Rasmussen, and I'm sure the Obama number from the same source. Rasmussen is as worthless as Trump.

Those six bullets in the back were originally fired from the front but changed directions in mid-air. Oh, and it was a single bullet.

The Jury foreman's statement on the Orlando shooter's wife was interesting. He said the jury did not find her innocent, they found her not guilty. They felt she lied repeatedly and also had knowledge that her husband intended to do something bad sometime. Based on the charges, they could not nail her for having a role in the Orlando shooting, however. Big difference in how papers reported the outcome. She was not given a clean bill of health, so to speak.

Barry, this will test your old guy knowledge. Do you remember when Texas high school girls only played half court basketball? The three on offense never crossed half court, just as the three on defense never crossed half court. Was very exciting.

I try to read across the spectrum ... this from a center-left point of view, probably the funniest sentence I've read all day:

"President Fox News Grandpa saw something on television again, and now he's tweeting with all the nuance and informed restraint of someone whose brain is marinating in a tub of cable-news sludge."

In reference to his (poorly informed) DACA tweets this weekend ... I'll stipulate that the man should stop watching so much TV, and for the love of all things holy, stop tweeting.

Ya know, this is a lot more fun when Barry clears the comments out regularly. I mean, today it's mid-afternoon already and he's only posted comments once or twice. Kinda hard to watch Rage and WK bitch-slap each other this way.

2:42, Cut Skippy some slack. He had a paying customer and couldn't figure out how to bill him for editing his blog posters.

Dear Mr. Hamilton:

I see with age your knowledge of the Constitution has failed you.

She is innocent. She doesn't need anyone to find her to be innocent of complicity, or conspiracy, or whatever the charges were, because she already is. You are innocent of those same charges. So am I. So is Barry. We are all innocent. And, not having been found guilty (there is no middle ground here--you are innocent until proven otherwise, and when not proven otherwise, you remain innocent), she will remain so, forever.

Harry Hamid said...

Well, but Rage, that's not what juries or a trier of fact is saying when they don't convict.

They're not looking for innocence. They're making a determinaiton about whether the prosecution held up their burden.

Innocence has nothing to do with it. It's merely a statement about a legal standard of guilt.

"I was never convicted of anything" is really not all that convincing when you're trying to convince someone you're a good guy.

I wish someone in Stephon Clark's family would have gotten in his face about busting up the neighborhood and breaking into cars with the same passion and anger they have displayed towards those who had absolutely nothing to do with him getting shot. Absolutely no need to use that much deadly force, and it's also absolutely true it would not have happened if he decided NOT to be a horrible thug that night.

Actually they were knows as "Lady Maroon" for a couple years, back in 1992-ish but the locals didn't like it and had a town meeting or something to change it back.

Hey Rage, can you point out where our constitution say “innocent until proven guilty”?I’ll wait.
