Investigators on scene of officer-involved shooting

Source: Houston Chronicle

A apparently unarmed man was shot and killed by a Houston police officer after the man allegedly became agitated and charged the officer.

Houston Police Department spokesman John Cannon said the officer was driving northbound Saturday about 5:45 p.m. along the feeder road of the Eastex Freeway when he saw a man at an intersection of Collingsworth St. damaging a traffic sign.

The officer, identified as K. Levi, pulled over and said the man appeared agitated and was yelling obscenities, and Cannon said the man appeared to be "under the influence of a strong narcotic."

Donald Trump mischaracterizes freedom of speech

Donald Trump complained that protesters shut down his freedom of speech:

But the First Amendment doesn't protect Donald Trump from protesters.

The text of the First Amendment says that he is protected from Congress passing a law that abridges his freedom of speech:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.


Donald Trumps freedom of speech was not violated.

Bernie Sander's ad running in Texas now on CNN

Posted by cannabis_flower | Sat Feb 27, 2016, 11:00 AM (5 replies)

H.A. Goodman was on CNN this morning

He really let it all out on Hillary this morning with Victor Blackwell. Can't find the video yet. Of course, I know the Hillary people say all kinds of awful things ABUT him but everything he said was pretty much the truth

UPDATE: Here's a link to the article they were talking about:

Still no video

If you are going to win the GE in a red state

you are going to have to target independents and if you want to win the primary in an open primary state like Texas, you definitely would want to attract some crossover voters. Sorry, that's just the way the game is played in open primary states like Texas.

It could work for or against your candidate. I have heard of Democrats going to the Republican primary and voting for what they consider the least electable candidate. I have never done that but it happens a lot. The reason it doesn't happen more is because if you vote in the opposite party primary, you won't be eligible to go to any Democratic convention and participate in the nitty-gritty of the party such as writing the state party platform or going to the National Convention.

I'm wondering if the reason for small Democratic turnout

is simply because Democratic voters for the most part, don't care if Hillary or Bernie are facing the Republican in November and would be happy to vote for either one. If you like them both you might not be motivated to vote in the primary.
