Brazoria County Today

Fortunately I lived when college actually was some of the best years of my life. And when I graduated? 0 assets, BUT, 0 debt. In those days America really did give young people a good chance at attaining the  American dream.

Republicans have cancelled all their appointments, ditched plans to stand in line for new Star Wars movie, and instead have opted to stand in line outside their houses to watch Republican debates on television Tuesday night.  Claim it's their civic duty and they are just being responsible Americans.  The rest of us just shake our heads bewildered. 

Spending another day trying to figure out how future archaeologists will be digging up my tweets.

If I point my car at you next week it means my new dash cam has been installed. #oritjustmightmeaniamabouttorunoveryou

You know how you sometime confirm a "friend request" to people you don't know?  Just deleted one of  those  "friends' who was  arrested  for involvement in a shooting in a home invasion.  Tread lightly on my home page. Believe nothing. 

Being a divorce lawyer is a pretty high risk occupation 

anyway...what with being around newly single women all the


FB - they are messing it up with ads making it tedious  to see the story you were only mildly interested in anyway, no matter how enticing they make the headline.

Blend between conservatism and liberalism.  Why is it so hard for us to see  THAT is probably best for us and where we actually were when we were our strongest?  Where is THAT political party?




I thought we were fed up with "may way or the highway" politics.


“We Made A Mistake”: Georgia 

Police Reportedly Enter Wrong 

Home In Response To 911 Call,

 Kill Family Dog, Shoot An 

Unarmed Father, and Then Shoot

 One of Their Own Officers

Yanna2imgresDekalb police are admitting this week that “we made a mistake” but that does not seem to capture full extent of the blunder perpetrated by three officers who mistakenly entered the home of Chris and Leah McKinley in response to a 911 call. Not only did the officers enter the wrong home, but they proceeded to shoot the family dog, then shoot the unarmed father, and then shoot one of their own officers.

ChrisMcKinleyChris McKinley, 36, (right) and his wife and their one-year old boy were watching the movie Serendipity on their sofa when three police officers entered their kitchen. The officers were responding to a burglary call and entered through an open kitchen door. They immediately shot the family dog (a 10 year old female Boxer named Yana) and killed it. When Chris ran into the kitchen, he was also shot in the leg. They then shot one of their own officers. Chris made it outside and told a neighbor that he was shoot and reportedly said “Why did they shoot me? Why did they shoot my dog?’ He says, ‘I opened the door to see what the dogs were barking at, and I see black uniforms and I hear pop-pop-pop-pop.’”
In the aftermath of this mess, DeKalb police Chief James Conroy said “Without getting into the specifics of this case, that’s one of the challenges when people call 911, we often don’t know where they are . . . We want officers to go out and investigate crimes like this rather than react. We want to go out and actually apprehend criminals and help people.” DeKalb director of public safety Cedric Alexander added “Are we perfect? Absolutely not. But when we find a mistake, we own it. We own the fact that we were at the wrong house. We didn’t hide it. We didn’t mismanage it. We were at the wrong location based on information that was given to us.”
The family has a different view and has denounced the police report which they say is false in saying that Chris burst through the door and ran towards them in a threatening way.

Trump Critics Unleash Vulgar and Violent Rhetoric Over Immigration Debate

by jonathanturley
Screen Shot 2015-12-12 at 10.24.53 AMDonald Trump's recent proposal to ban Muslims from entry in the country and his policies on illegal immigration has caused a heated debate. As we recently discussed, some have taken this debate to a personal and vulgar level, including the involvement in children in disgraceful videotapes. Now El Diablito, a food cart company in Portland, Oregon has followed suit with its own disgraceful display of children screaming to "kill" Trump and flashing vulgar signs. It is beyond me how parents would expose or encourage such things with children. However, they are not alone in such shocking conduct. Loring Wirbel, co-chairman of the Colorado Springs, Colo., chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has resigned after saying that Trump supporters should be shot.
