What in the heck is going on down there? I don't even feel comfortable linking to a video I just watched about the gun protest on that campus, but needless to say the students have gone stark raving mad over the fact that campus carry is legal.
Some will die in hot pursuit
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

    The university is in Austin. Austin is a haven for liberals. It's the closest thing to San Francisco we have in Texas.

    That includes Round Rock and Georgetown too.

    Just a matter of time until Texas is a "blue state".

    That is possible, I guess. But by that time it really wouldn't matter. It would simply be " the last one out turn off the lights" and welcome to the USSA.

    Once upon a time Texas could have split into 5 states.

    Austin would be in the segment the rest didn't talk about.[;)]

    Yes, that is it. I can only imagine why the feminazis are ok with the obviously male oppression undertones of such a movement.

    Austin has always been a magnet for serious goofball activities.

    However, as Nunn said it's far from representative of how things operate in the rest of the state.

    Recent surveymonkey poll I saw done by the Washington Post said Trump probably doesn't have Texas, it's likely Clinton does.

    "The biggest problem is that the poll was conducted online from August 9 to September 1, which is a really long stretch to be asking questions. Voters' mood may shift from the beginning part of the survey period to the latter parts. Trump had a really lousy stretch after the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, but Clinton's convention bump steadily dissipated during that stretch.

    Some poll observers may wonder about the respondent selection criteria:

    The sample of registered voters living in each of 50 states was drawn from the pool of respondents to user-generated poll conducted on SurveyMonkey's platform, which typically includes roughly 3 million people each day. After completing an unrelated survey, a sub-sample of those respondents were invited to participate in a second survey asking "Where do you stand on current events? Share your opinion." Results were analyzed among those who reported they are registered to vote."

    For the most part the results seem pretty consistent with otter polls. But I do take pause when the percent of R & D is omitted. Texas would be difficult to survey due to its geographic size. One issue I have with polls is the truth factor. Are they actually registered, are the even legal?
