The Campaign For DA

4.23.2018

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Funniest thing I've heard lately about those who hate the Confederate statues being taken down: "You should have won the war."
  • Anyone else notice that some cars were driving very slowly on 4/20?
  • As a guy who now has seen two kids experiencing high school, watching The Breakfast Club seems much different than when I first saw it. John Hughes was a master at understanding the human condition. 
  • Mrs. LL and I are now five episodes deep into Green Acres. Mrs. LL loves it. 
  • Ted Cruz writes an article praising Trump in Time magazine? That after what Trump did to him in the election? ("Lyin' Ted"). And Cruz once said we would "plunge into the abyss" under a Donald Trump presidency. Crooks and Liars. 
  • This should freak us all out
  • Mark Cuban once said: If you can't spot the sucker in the room in a business meeting, that person is you. That's the dumbest thing ever said. It presumes you are the smartest man in the room. 
  • This photo, posted by a former NFL kicker, caused controversy this weekend. I'll cut him a break. #BitsAreFun
  • This was in the Messenger this week and it referenced one of the greatest articles of all time that they published. One of their young reporters went and ran naked at a Wise County nudist colony.:
  • I watched Gladiator again this weekend. This line stuck out to me: "Fear and wonder. A powerful combination." (I'll put that movie in my Top 10.)
  • Trump went on a crazy Twitter rant this weekend. It is too much to keep up with.
  • You have to love politics to do want to see this, but Kellyanne Conway losing it over the weekend during a CNN interview borders on bizarre. 
  • My father disclosed yesterday that as a young man he was paid $1 to dispose of a dead dog at the request of Bridgeport's Chief of Police, was allowed to take the Chief's car, and decided he would do comedy by firing up the siren as he came back into downtown Bridgeport. I'm still laughing. (He pulled up behind two DPS Troopers' cars -- the only two troopers assigned to Wise County at the time.)
  • Four people were killed, and many more injured, by a white naked guy with an AR-15 this weekend in Tennessee. The insanity was stopped by an unarmed black guy.  
  • Sean Hannity uses government welfare and prays on the poor? Who would have thought? And the fact this came to light because he is one of the three clients for the Dumbest Lawyer In America is gold.

Cuban's comment is most decidedly NOT based on the premise of being the smartest guy in the room. It IS based on not being the dumbest. Fifty people in a room with one sucker. You don't have to be the smartest guy in the room to not be the sucker, merely #49.

And Baiter's gonna Bait. Hannity doesn't take a welfare check every month. He uses a system to his advantage. Kinda like Trump having one of his companies declare Bankruptcy and reorganizing the debt. The system exists, he uses it. Not really a shocker.

I'd say Hannity's legal business (by the way, his "government welfare" isn't what you make it out to be; read the article) came to light because judge Kimba Wood, Hillary Clinton's choice for Attorney General, ruled that the media's interest in Cohen's clientele outweighed the attorney-client privilege.

Ah, I see 9:10am. If Hannity (a rich white guy) uses the system, he's just being smart. But if a poor black family uses the system, they're leaching the system and should probably be jailed. Great examples of Christianity on this blog.

Kellyanne went ballistic purely for the benefit of her boss, if he was tuned in. Couldn't afford for her meal ticket to evaporate because the boss discovers that Kellyanne's hubbie is an anti-Trump guy & tweets about it. His ego is too fragile to discover that everyone doesn't love him.

Sean Hannity *preys on the poor

Anonymous said...

Waffle House shhoting head scratcher. AR-15 used in killing of five people was among guns confiscated from shooter when he was picked up near White House several years back. Supposedly after Secret Service investigation and court action, he was prohibited to own weapons henceforth. Secret Service gave weapons, including AR-15, to crazy guy's dad. Dad eventually let son have several or all guns back. Is there any scenario where dad doesn't wind up in a criminal case, a civil case, or both?

Glad this guy stepped up, bet he wished he was LTC instead of rushing the guy. Meanwhile, in Chicago this weekend: 5 dead and 23 wounded by gunfire. For this month alone 19 shot and killed, 147 shot. I won’t mention the race of the murderers or their victims in my post as our kind host typically does.

Mark Cuban also said that the stock market would lose 50 per cent of it's value if Donald Trump was elected.

Naked is natural, unless you are carrying an AR15 and shooting up a Waffle House.

Fathers and their daughters have posed for pictures like this for years. A lot of the dads are in some type of Rambo gear. And by a lot I mean countless numbers of dads all doing the same thing.

As usual Barry is the last to know.

Former judge pleas guilty to tampering with government records
https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Tarrant-County-Judge-Charged-With-Crime-480459851.html

What he did amounts to voter fraud. A black woman in Tarrant County voted inadvertently and was recently charged, convicted, and sentenced to 5 years in prison. Judge Russ Casey gets 2 years. Guess what color he is? He was also endorsed by the rest of the klansman at Northeast Tarrant Tea Party.

Seems to be a lot of criminal element associated that group --> Russ Casey, Ken Paxton, and Steve Stockman.

Whatever happened to the nice reporter Chris Butler, that worked for the Wise County Messenger? He wrote some great articles, along with that Evans guy.

HUD financed Hannity's real estate acquisitions

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/apr/22/michael-cohen-sean-hannity-property-real-estate-ben-carson-hud?CMP=share_btn_tw

"The Georgia purchases were funded with mortgages for $17.9m that Hannity obtained with help from Hud, which insured the loans under a program created as part of the National Housing Act. The loans, first guaranteed under the Obama administration, were recently increased by $5m with renewed support from Carson’s department.

...

"The Georgia mortgages supported by Hud were guaranteed as part of a program aimed at protecting investors such as Hannity who buy rental apartment buildings. The government promises to cover losses if borrowers default on their mortgages. Borrowers pay an insurance premium to Hud in return. Bigger loan guarantees are available if the building houses low-income families.

"Paperwork relating to the agreements with Hud, which was filed to county authorities, named Hannity as the principal of the shell companies used to buy the apartment complexes and to borrow the funds. Hannity personally signed several of the documents. A Hud source said Hannity was identified in non-public filings as the 100% owner of the apartment complexes.

"Late last month, Hannity’s mortgages were replaced with loans for $22.9m that were rewritten with Carson’s Hud and a new bank. There was no indication that Carson was personally involved in the process. Carson does, however, have the authority to allow Hannity from 2019 to convert the rental complexes into condominiums for sale, which could be lucrative for the television host."

Where was all the outrage from you liberal weenie crybabies when Valerie Jarrett, who was Obammy's chief of staff and only private citizen with Secret Service protection, made millions by using loopholes and HUD services as a Chicago slum lord?

I'm one of those offended by Jay Feely's photo. Kids are dealing with enough challenges these days. For some dad to try to get a cheap laugh by forcing his teenage daughter to pose in such a photo is a disgrace. I mean, a white belt? I don't care if he just came from the golf course. That's embarrassing!

(Oh, and the gun bit is pretty funny... Dads take photos like that all the time.)

1037 - Did the government gift Hannity any money? In all of this, did Hannity receive any loans that he doesn't have to pay back?

10:37 Have you ever bought or sold a piece of property? Do you have any idea of the percentage of home loans are insured through FHA/HUD? Hannity has the money to purchase on credit a significant number of homes. So what? He qualified to do so, using the same mortgage qualification process that literally millions of Americans use every year to finance their individual homes. Given the volume of loans in the portfolios, and the fact that investment corporations were in play, the chances are very good he was subjected to more scrutiny than the average home buyer in the same situation, but unless the argument is he broke a law, step off.

Haha, Wordkyle insults a couple people for not reading the article, so I posted the relevant parts of the article. Somehow, that drew Wordkyle and Anon 1150's ire. Take it up with the Guardian who wrote the article -- that you suggested people read -- if you don't like the facts.

wordkyle said...

1037/1234 - You apparently copied and pasted without reading. IF the article is accurate, it doesn't support your initial claim.

By the way, is recommending someone read something considered an insult? No wonder you don't know your own citation.

I vote for 11:36 as the prescient comment of the day. Spot on.

Everyone is afraid of something - y'all seem to be particularly focused on the brown and black people and those folks that take faith as a truth, and live neither, but that's your problem.

You know what scares me? This (sorry, don't know how to make that a link - Wordkyle, you do that a lot - how-to steps please?):

Maybe I'm just being my old curmudgeony self, but if we have a generation coming up who are afraid to touch raw meat, then it's gonna get real interesting on planet Earth in about 50 years.

I don't bring Jesus into, I know my deep hatred for liberals is a sin I just had to accept that I can't change that. I hope to be forgiven for it one day but have made my piece with it if I won't. In the meantime I will fight keep liberals from destroying the current world I live in.

Go check out any majority liberal community, you will have a tiny Uber rich ruling class and then super poor and segregated minority communities. Your middle class has been wiped out. If liberals get what they want they will turn America into that and it destroys my family's future.
