The Campaign For DA

5.08.2018

Random Tuesday Morning Thought


  • This seminar is nothing like I thought it would be. The speakers are energetic and fantastic.  The whole theme is to follow the rules and treat people with respect. 
  • Did you that there is a defense to Public Intoxication if a doctor has prescribed alcohol to you? Anyone else confused?
  • I haven't been to the pool but when I walked by it they were playing the Margaritaville Station off of satellite radio. Kill me.
  • This is a crazy story:
  • Oil hit $70 yesterday.
  • I haven't done a Tucker Carlson dumb face tweet in a while. I saw one last night: 
  • The New Yorker publishes an article about the abuse of women by New York's AG Eric Schneiderman abusing women. He resigned within four hours. Who would have thought that a Democrat would take immediate responsibility?
  • Flashback from the President of the United States. At least he doesn't have fake hair:
  • Your federal government:
  • I am now of the belief Tony Romo is the equivalent of a millennial. He "sent a sincere message" to Jason Witten but publishes it on Twitter. And he called him "bro". Talk to him in private instead of doing a "look at me" message". 
  • To all Texas state government employees: The state is probably making pension/retirement promises that they won't be able to keep.

Dems should give Crooked Hillary another try in 2020 with Schneiderman as VP. I couldn't think of 2 better symbols of that party.

Re the civil forfeiture case - Government employees should go to prison over this. "The agency" can't pay a price for such crap; individuals can, and should.

"Who would have thought that a Democrat would take immediate responsibility?"

It is surprisingly refreshing from the self proclaimed #metoo party.

The Clinton, Weiner, and Franken playbook was stale.

What’s that you say about hypocrites Green?

Imagine the hypocrisy of trying to prosecute Flynn under the Logan act but not John Kerry as he works with Iran.

Are you seriously going to criticize Romo for what you describe as a "look at me" message?

And you publish this rag every day?

Wow. So typical of the hypocrisy of the left.

TRUMP!!!!!

I'm sure that alcohol is a perfectly valid prescription for something, although when I get a prescription, it always warns me about driving or operating machinery on the side of it if I could be impaired by the medication. Is it a legitimate defense if you don't use the prescription as directed?

Not a bad deal, though. I'd only have to be paying copays...

As to your take on Tony Romo -
It could be that had he done that in private, the fans of Cowboys/Romo/Witten/football would have felt slighted had Romo failed to give a public statement, and lashed out.

Also... I agree, it's also a "look at me" move. However, his job is to draw attention to himself which increases his tv ratings and makes him more likable, and makes him more in demand.

You were handed a judgeship on a silver platter. And you're now at the Isla Grand Beach Resort. And you're whining about the music at the pool. Typical behavior for you, BG The Protector. The Proctector. Too funny. Sad actually. You should star in a rom com titled, Sad Actually. It will be the feel bad hit of the summer. :(

Romo as a millennial...well, demographers typically identify this generation as beginning in the early 80s and continuing through about 94/95. Romo was born in 1980, you can't get much more early 80s than 1980, so it isn't his behavior that gets him lumped in that category, but rather, his DOB, as is typically that case with all of us.

Schneiderman is not taking responsibility. He is now saying it was all sexual role playing and that it was consensual.

How hypocritical. You compliment people you admire all the time on this blog. See your recent (wonderful) comments on the late Judge Fostel. Were you trying to garner attention, or were you trying to publicly honor someone you admired using the most influential platform you have?

You really should consider how your dislike of the NFL can bleed over into your opinions of everyone and everything that is associated with the NFL.

re Eric Schneiderman: Is THIS 'taking responsibility':
"In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time."
Uuuh...looks nothing like responsibility to me. I saw this earlier in our local nickel version of the Star-Telegram. When I read the New Yorker story, I was surprised he has lasted this long.

Speaking of those who support abuse, why is there nothing about Paige Patterson in your column, oh, erstwhile Southern Baptist?

I'm not as worried about cash being seized when it is 1) leaving the country as cash and 2) not declared as required beyond the $10,000 limit, as I was with things like Operation Chokepoint where banks were being influenced to cut ties with certain businesses, including gun stores, and other money was being seized for supposedly adjusting deposits to stay under the 10k limit by the same small businesses- all going on for years.

Training seminars for muni judges and court employees are funded by the state from its retained portion of fines. If you don’t like that, obey the speed limit and all road signs as the law not as suggestions. Purpose of training is to acquaint those adjudicating traffic related offenses with full knowledge not only of the law but YOUR rights.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told an audience in New Zealand Monday that she gave “some thought” to permanently leaving the United States and settling in that country after Donald Trump scored his upset victory over her in 2016.

Barry, just saw this story on the current Corpus Christi DA. Opposite kind of guy from the exiting Waco DA. Great back story. Biker club, tats, and all. And next to last in his law class at St Mary's, but a good litigator. Enjoy.

Heard a local GOP congressperson last month say in a townhall that he is working with others to cut back on Medicare and Social Security because we need a new "affordable contract with the people". I looked around the room of oldsters and hardly anyone blinked. They heard a sitting rep say he was actively working to cut what they had paid into for decades and promised and nobody wanted to tar and feather him. Amazing what Trumpsters will accept as long as a Republican proposes it.

It's a defense to public intoxication, Harry, not DWI. No prescription drug is a defense to that (although I don't practice in that area, I believe it falls under "any loss of faculties").

I live on the same street and a few houses down from the murder / suicide in Rockwall. Absolutely tragic. I never met the husband, but the wife that was killed was simply delightful every time I spoke with her. And their daughter is absolutely adorable.

Just sad. :(

I had a friend once that had an accident and would get incredible headaches. The only thing that seemed to help was to drink a beer. He would just drink one, and it was once or twice a day. Usually in the morning and then later in the afternoon. Anyway, he told his doctor about it, and the doc was like, "no harm, no foul. Go ahead."

Unfortunately, my buddy was an air traffic controller and they do not look favorably on that consumption. When they found out, they suspended him with pay for 6 months and had him to to an alcohol treatment program. I have since lost touch with him.. hot sure what he did about the headaches.

The reason they didn't blink is they know their benefits are not going to be effected if SS and Medicare is cut. It makes sense to start cutting benefits to future recipients and letting them start investing and planning for their own future instead of relying on the govt.

1:25 - The more accurate language would be that the U.S. violated the agreement, since we abandoned it without cause. There is no evidence at this point that Iran was in violation of the agreement by restarting its nuclear program.

In the speech, Trump declared that, "At the heart of the Iran deal is a fiction, that Iran only desired a peaceful nuclear energy program." This is factually incorrect: the Iran deal was constructed on the express pretense that Iran intended to develop The Bomb.

What we have done by violating the agreement is given Iran the wiggle room to block the ability of the International Atomic Energy Agency to conduct (heretofore fairly robust) inspections to check for cheating.

Barry, your silence on John Kerry's illegal shadow diplomacy speaks volumes. And I'm sorry to appear to be the "speaks volumes" guy. Trust me, I'm not. But if anything speaks volumes, it is the fact of his ass not being arrested like yesterday. And if your silence on the whole affair says anything at all, maybe you need to examine your zeal for having anyone associated with Trump investigated and indicted for anything at all just to affirm your political view. But the destruction wrought by your irrational partisanship is precisely the reason you are constantly harangued here on your own blog as of late.

Why you publish it all is still a mystery. But that doesn't make you less of a partisan hack disinterested in reality. Just a noble one.

So, by unilaterally pulling out of the Paris Agreement and now this deal, the good faith and credit of the United States is now worth as much as a Trump University degree.

He was handed some truthless lunacy from some crackpot like John Bolton, and he read it on television. And, just like that, the credibility of the United States sank to the bottom of a sinkhole golf course in Florida.

And NK really thinks sitting down and making a deal of some sort with SecState is going to be something that holds water the day after tomorrow?

Fairly robust. That's an interesting interpretation. Exactly what metric do you use to arrive at that conclusion? And one that doesn't square with a lot of other experts' opinions. Either way, here's life's reality that you seem incapable of comprehending; The Iran deal was not a treaty ratified through traditional channels.(The senate)? You were content to let your president pen and phone his version of government into action. Damn that pesky constitutional process. Newsflash, dipshit! You don't get to complain now that a subsequent administration exercises tose exact same privileges.

It's just this simple, moron. Your tolerance of BHO's abuses directly caused Trump's. Own it.

Seriously gullible people on here! The Paris Climate deal was nothing but a feel good pile of garbage only a few nations were going to even attempt to honor. The Iran agreement was a complete joke. If some fancy European's and a handful of died in the wool diplomats get their feelings hurt it doesn't mean our credibility is damaged. Actually the opposite because people know we mean business and we are signaling to the rest of the world to cut the crap!
