#BecauseTexas

Drove to work today because Friday is my day to pick LG up from school. He's at the math magnet so too far for cycling and bus is out because he stays late for jazz band on Friday.

So we are driving home and end up behind a pickup with this bumper sticker:

Guns don't kill people. Drivers with cell phones kill people.

For obvious reasons, I did not take my phone out and snap a photo, so gratuitous doggie photo instead.

I'm assuming that you've since removed the bumper sticker text?

Yeah... That'll buff right out.

HAIL Damage! Okay, this is just one data point, but the rocket scientists say it's part of a trend.

Extreme weather and climate events have risen in recent decades, with "new and stronger evidence" that many of these increases are related to human activities.

My father-in-law in Wichita Falls put a steel roof on his house after something like his fourth claim for hail damage.

I call this photo: Blind Man With worthless Service Animal.

I cannot wear my glasses when I get down on the ground with #JakeTheDopeyDog because he always licks them. WTH?

Dog spit is really hard to clean off prescription lenses.

Bernie should remember the Post lies about Hillary. All. The. Time.

It's called "Clinton Rules." 
http://crooksandliars.com/2015/07/clinton-reporter-explains-medias-unspoken

Failure to understand the "Clinton Rules" are the biggest reason the Sanders campaign has struggled so much with partisan Democrats, older voters, and AfrAm voters in particular. These groups believe Hillary is fundamentally honest and they think all of the negative reporting is just malicious smears fabricated by the conservative establishment and perpetuated by lazy mainstream journalists. By running against Hillary as corrupt and dishonest, Sanders has explicitly endorsed the "Clinton Rules" and alienated these core constituencies.

There is a reason Toni Morrison called Bill Clinton the "first black president." Most people don't understand what she meant, but it is a key to understanding Clinton's support in the ethnically diverse parts of the country. The Sanders campaign has been increasingly blowing a dog whistle they can''t  hear.
http://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2015/08/toni-morrison-wasnt-giving-bill-clinton-a-compliment/402517/

And the "Clinton Rules" continue. Remember a week ago when the Post claimed there were "147 FBI agents" investigating her email, and then had to issue a correction because the correct number was "fewer than 50" and then reported by MSNBC to be "around 12?" 
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/wapo-corrects-number-fbi-agents-clinton-email-probe

Apparently Bernie didn't remember that when he read the Post's headline that Hillary had called him unqualified. The Post's headline was deliberately misleading and intended to make her look desperate ahead of the upcoming primaries in NY, NJ, and PA. 
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/sanders-blames-media-unqualified-tiff-clinton

In other words, the Sanders campaign never seemed to grasp that embracing establishment tactics against Clinton really prevented them from running as anti-establishment - especially in ares where those establishment tactics have long been employed against the very voters they were trying to reach. 

I'm not really surprised that the Sanders campaign has been more explicitly endorsing the corrupt or criminal tropes, although I am disappointed. There probably aren't many arrows left in his quiver, so he's gotta use what he has. This is essentially the same thing Hillary did against Obama when, late in the game, she started attacking his qualifications, "fairy tale" plans, and claiming she was more electable because the "white working class" supported her not him. But Hillary's tactics in '08 created some hard feelings with AfrAm voters that she had to spend a lot of time and effort repairing over the last 8 years. I hope the movement Sanders is trying to build spends the time and effort to repair its relationship with key constituencies for all our sake.

Whether they're fair or not, the Clinton rules distort the public's perception of Hillary Clinton.

The troll train catches +Adam Pressler; he backpedals and pretends he meant to ride slowly the whole time as he yells "It's not a race!" though his sweat soaked jersey belies his true intentions.

Oh, Adam... You're a  never-ending fountain, constantly spewing "win"

Adam, your hair appears to be injection molded and your mother dresses you funny.

You sure +Adam Pressler ? I might cut your chicken wings clean off.
