@bakermayfield I wanted to say something about Terry Bradshaw. You're too young to have seen him like I did. I hated the Steelers, but I had to give Bradshaw credit for his subtle touch on the ball. He could throw into the middle of the secondary into a nest of defenders...
and it didn't matter how many. He'd alley-oop the ball so that only one person could touch it first, his receiver. Just like you do in the red zone. He'd lob the ball. It took timing and a deft touch. I hated him for that. He could also throw the bullet when necessary to the...
sideline or long. Point is, unlike Heisman winner Pat Sullivan in 1971, Bradshaw knew not everything needed to be a flaming fastball. There's nothing more beautiful than one of your red zone lobs. Same with Bradshaw at the 50 yard line.

I still don't like him.

.@TulsiGabbard Be a libertarian-leaning conservative, a classical liberal. Say the party left you. You can't be in favor of 1) less governmental legitimacy (you understand that?) and 2) weakening the Rule of Law. Look at failed dem jurisdictions. They stand for nothing but self.
Look up governmental legitimacy. You will find the type I'm thinking of.
I went ahead and located it on Wikipedia. Note that a lot of jerks in this area commonly rewrite long-standing persuasive arguments and turn them into plausible-sounding manipulative propaganda. I've tried to steer clear. I'll point* out the inappropriate parts.

Kid story: I learned more about practical problem solving from Wah-Tea-Skaka, my Native American grandpa, than anyone else. He only talked if you were f^cking up, or if he was laughing at you. He taught by example. We learned about hard work and responsibility by imitating him.
During summers, 6-13 years old, my cousin and I would go to his ranch and (try to) help with the cattle. We watched him, determined what he was doing, and figured out ways to help. F/X, once the cattle had a pink eye type infection. He moved them into the corral which had...
a single file exit. No horses, so he was bodily hoarding a few at a time. We saw our chance to prove ourselves and came up with a plan: “You run that way, and I’ll run this way.” We herded all of into the corral by running wide around them. Grandpa shut the gate and...
