The Harris County Republican Party, in my judgment, expects their elected DA to adhere to the following principles:

YOUR PRIMARY JOB DUTY will be to do anything necessary to keep getting re-elected.


1.  You must be willing to raise large sums of money every election cycle.  To collect the vast amounts of required cash, you can either convince many fellow citizens to give you money or you can make secret promises to well connected political entities or decide.

2. You must spend most of your time on the job secretly promising favors and pandering to the hard core Republican base, while simultaneously denying to your constituents that you’ve made secret promises.

3. You must be willing to expose yourself, your family and your friends to the constant risk of being defamed by incoherent disgruntled people.

4. You must be willing to find a way to avoid spending time with moderates, democrats and other undesirables.

5. You must be willing to expose yourself to constant ridicule and false charges trumped up by the media to sell advertisements. Everything embarrassing you’ve ever done will appear in publications, especially if it is irrelevant to the issues facing the district attorney's office.

6. Once you start campaigning, you must agree to stop talking candidly about anything.

7. You must support every minutiae of the party line no matter how extreme or irrelevant to your real job as DA; common sense be damned.

8. You must be willing to expose your family and your closest friends to massive invasions of their privacy.

9. You must explain and solve complex social and legal issues using only 8-second sound bites.

10. You must be willing to expose yourself to scandalous and false attacks on your career as a prosecutor.

11. You must accept that most people who you once thought were your friends will only be there for you  if you win. And if you win you will have lots of new friends.

11. Your door must always be open to the opinionated blue haired loyalists and the well-heeled republican donors.

12. To win re-election, you must get down in the dirt and personally hurl false charges against your opponent, because the ends will justify the means.

The Harris County Republican Party might not recognize it; but the citizens of Harris County are in desperate need of an honest, intelligent, dedicated, and qualified candidate to apply for the office of Harris County District Attorney.......YOU are that hope for the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

I do not recall a county election where a candidate was as brutally and unfairly attacked as you were in was disgraceful on so many levels; but you stayed in the ring, you took the body shots, the head butts and you never gave was the Harris County voter, at the end of the day, who threw in the towel.

In fact, the Kelly Siegler haters are already crawling out of the sewers against you in mere anticipation of your "possible" candidacy. They are that afraid of your courage and spirit.

Even now, in an attempt to excuse the recently exposed consequences of Lykos' incompetence, the Republican operatives are accusing you of orchestrating an anti-Lykos conspiracy.

I can't believe you would even consider getting back in the ring..............thank you.

Prosecutor named in BAT van case Newswatch a blog

"State District Judge Susan Brown on Wednesday named attorney Stephen C. St. Martin as a “temporary prosecutor” to assist a grand jury apparently investigating the Houston Police Department’s troubled mobile alcohol testing program.
The order appointing St. Martin, a former assistant district attorney, states that grand jurors are investigating possible criminal conduct by the district attorney’s office.
Court officials said Brown intended to name another special prosecutor but hasn’t signed that order yet.
The grand jury gained attention last week when it excluded prosecutors from listening to witnesses testifying in secret proceedings during the ongoing investigation. On Tuesday the grand jury heard testimony from prosecutors under subpoena, providing further evidence that the panel is examining the role the DA’s office has played in cases involving breath alcohol testing vehicles known as BAT vans."
-Houston Chronicle

Welcome to the Major League DA Pat Lykos........or should I say Major Offenders?
*You have done some awful things to some awfully good folks.
*You have defamed and bullied performers for doing their jobs so that you could advance for not doing yours.
*You have pretended to create as you destroyed the creation of others.
*Your pretense has fooled too many for too long.
*Your Republican base will now get a glimpse into who the REAL Pat Lykos is....the rose colored glasses are cracking.

You are a creature of habit Pat Lykos. You historically soil the messenger to hide the message. 
I fully expect you to accuse Judge Susan Brown of having an unfounded vendetta.  You will defame her husband Mark and out-perform the muddiest feral hog in Texas to personally attack Stephen St. Martin.

Your tactics remind me of the late Senator Joseph McCarthy.
During the Army-McCarthy Senate Hearings in 1954, Mr. Welch had finally had enough when in addressing Senator McCarthy said, "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency."
As that hearing marked the end of McCarthy's arbitrary rule; so shall it be for Lykos.

Judge Brown chose well in selecting St. Martin as a Special Prosecutor to bring JUSTICE back to the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
St. Martin is not afraid of Lykos. He is privy to the workings of the HCDAO. He is a REAL prosecutor and understands the Rules of Criminal Procedure and Evidence.

How the Harris County Republican Party leadership responds to the Lykos corruption scandal will be interesting.
Will there be an onslaught of candidates filing in the Republican Primary forcing a run-off or will there be a Rock Star that is supported because she is the best qualified, albeit least political? 

I predict that at least four (4) candidates will file in the Republican Primary forcing a run-off.
Except for a throw-down-spoiler-puppet like Jim Leitner who is ultimately responsible for the Pat Lykos debacle; these folks need to ask themselves:
1. Are you up for a run-off against Pat Lykos?
2. Will the hard core Republicans who always come out for the run-off still vote for Lykos in spite of her disastrous performance?
3. Will any one besides the hard core Lykos loyalists actually vote in the inevitable run-off.....history says they won't?
4. Is Kelly Siegler in it to win it?...........a proven prosecutor who has always fought her heart out for JUSTICE and victims' rights because it is who she is and the right thing to do.

Keep the faith........everything happens for a reason.

Herman Cain is a self made man who succeeded in spite of being black; NOT because of it.  His mother was a maid for the white man and his father was a white man's driver. "The Help" is not just a Hollywood flick for depict's his REAL roots.
Cain's ancestors came to America on slave ships......not on a Kenyan Boeing 747.  Cain grew up under Jim Crow.....he did not have to be taught about discrimination; he rose above  it.
Therein lies the fundamental difference between Herman Cain and the presidential pretender.........."President Cain" would be the first REAL black President of the United States of America.

Mr. Cain's philosophy for success in life is predicated on a work ethic NOT victim hood.  He does not hide from his heritage nor does he exploit it........he chooses to be judged based on performance NOT guilt. Cain considers himself an American who happens to be black; dismissing the divisive term African American.

The race baiters are in a frenzied disbelief: Cornel West, Al Sharpton, Walter Evans a/k/a Quanell X and the left wing media are now in "Palinesque" character assassination overdrive.
As these folks desperately sling their insidious racism against Herman Cain; black America is "out to lunch".
What an OUTRAGE! 

Black "leadership" is stunned: How can a black man possibly succeed on merit and have conservative Christian values?  He must be a grinnin' shufflin' Uncle Tom goober!  He must be destroyed!  God forbid Mr. Cain's values permeate the hood! 
Oh my goodness, what would happen to the poverty pimps of the democratic party if the disenfranchised segment of black America followed Cain's example?  The brainwashed herd mentality would be lost.........the dependent victims would be free at last!

The Tea Party's overwhelming support of Mr. Cain demonstrates their adherence to the fundamental belief that the content of an individual's character is more important than their skin color........principled policy counts.  WOW!
Cain offers solutions instead of excuses and does what other folks just talk about............................he is not a polished politician and that also is refreshing.

"On Friday October 7, 2011 shortly before noon, reporters at the Values Voter Summit were handed a blue sheet of paper with a news alert: "Southern Baptist Convention Leader to Endorse Perry at Values Voter Summit." Dr. Robert Jeffress, a Texas pastor, was all set to introduce his governor, and he had some thoughts. "Do we want a candidate who is a good, moral person, or one who is a born again follower of Jesus Christ? In Rick Perry, we have a candidate who is... a committed follower of Christ."

Jeffress doesn't like Mormonism. Jeffress became briefly infamous in 2007 for his rants against Mitt Romney, and the unacceptability of a Mormon nominee. Romney, he said, was a "cult" member.

I believe we should always support a Christian over a non-Christian. The value of electing a Christian goes beyond public policies. . . . Christians are uniquely favored by God, [while] Mormons, Hindus and Muslims worship a false god. The eternal consequences outweigh political ones. It is worse to legitimize a faith that would lead people to a separation from God.

At 2:30, Jeffress took the stage, as promised, and repeated his statement, adding to it. Perry was a "genuine follower of Jesus Christ!"
Perry walked onstage and thanked Jeffress for the endorsement.

After the speeches, Jeffress walked through the hotel doing interview after interview about his take on Mormonism."Article 6 of the Constitution says government can impose no religious tests," he said. "But private citizens can impose all the tests they like!"

When asked if Jeffress expressed these concerns to Perry. "No. He is not aware of my views on Mormonism," he said, "nor am I aware of his." *
...................And there we have it!

*Synopsis of a post from the South Philly blogger, "Field Negro", October 7, 2011.

So it begs the question:  how does one reconcile the diverse condemnation of Perry for this Preacher's comments while the racist and anti-American rantings of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former preacher and spiritual mentor of President Obama for over twenty (20) years, are off limits and not politically relevant?

The following Email has been circulating for a few months now and is so poignant in its graphic simplicity I am posting it below for those who might not have had the opportunity to read it:

"The folks who are getting the free shit, don't like the folks who are paying for the free shit,
BECAUSE the folks who are paying for the free shit, can no longer afford to pay for both the free shit and their own shit.

The folks who are paying for the free shit, want the free shit to stop;
and the the folks who are getting the free shit, want even more free shit on top of the free shit they are already getting!

Now... The people who are forcing the people who Pay for the free shit, have told the people who are RECEIVING the free shit, that the people who are PAYING for the free shit, are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So... the people who are GETTING the free shit, have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free shit, by the people who are forcing those people to pay for their free shit, and giving them the free shit in the first place.

We have let the free shit giving go on for so long that there are
Now more people getting free shit than paying for the free shit."

All great democracies have committed financial suicide once the voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The number of people now getting free shit outnumbers the people paying for the free shit.......... failure to change that spells the end of the greatest democracy man has ever known--The United States of America.
