 Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) signed legislation this week that will permit, among other things, grocery stores that sell beer to sell wine as well. Currently, hard liquor and wines can only be bought in state-owned and state-operated "Wine & Spirits" stores.

 

The new legislation will go into effect in 60 days, and will also permit restaurants and hotels to sell up to four bottles of wine to-go, permit Pennsylvania residents to have wine shipped directly to their homes, permit gas stations to sell six-packs, allow stores, state-owned and otherwise, to open on state holidays and to remain open longer on Sundays, and permit state-owned stores to engage in "flexible pricing" for "special discounts and sales."


Thats cus' he got the right stuff

That logic kind of works in this case, but in general, it does not. Its not like they made the rules for this particular race.
Super delegates are just a weird thing, they only subvert the democratic process.

 A party is just a bunch of people who back a candidate .Anyone can become a member of this party simply by joining They decide who the wish to support as a candidate through a process . That process is formulated by the members of the party. If the members don't like it they are free to change it but this is also done through a process. In order for any change in the process to take place the people who want the change must overrule the people who don't want the change.  This requires participation. In the recent California primary 35% of the eligible voters participated.65% of those voters were over 55 years of age. This is the reason a process that is seen as UNFAIR continues cycle after cycle

That with their general cultural preference for blue laws make UT quite quaint, IMO.

Kabir Alli, an 18-year old in Virginia, posted a brief video of himself running a couple of quick Google image searches. First he searched for "three black teenagers" and was met with several rows of decontextualized mugshots. Then he searched for "three white teenagers" and was served up stock photos of relaxed teens hanging out in front of various plain white backgrounds. The tweet has stirred controversy, with many people accusing Google of being racist. But is that the case? Alli says that while it's Google's fault in some sense as they should have better control over the things people see, he also believes that at the end of the day, what Google shows us is a reflection of what people think.

Funny, just this morning a usually-not-crazy friend posted to FB a video that I only briefly glanced at, but the gist of which seemed to be that Google intentionally skews the search results that come up when people search for info about Hillary Clinton (skewed favorably to Clinton, I think).

I have no idea which conspiracy theory is correct -- that Google is failing us by manipulating search results in ways that are contrary to our personal political biases, or that Google failing us by not manipulating search results in ways that are consistent with our personal political biases.
