Texas Drought

As you know, Texas has been subject to the effects of global warming and the state is dry as Hillary's nasty.

I'm dragging the sack for donations to help them. My "send a water bottle to Texas Campaign" is a way for you to help them avoid the impact of global warming and the resulting drought.

I hate to admit it, but Al Gore and Barack might be right. Even sending one water bottle will help and will be appreciate it as crops dry up, the rivers stagnate and the Lone Star State suffers.

Micro-Aggression (PC Police)

I feel that it's my duty to keep you all abreast of the latest politically correct requirements so that you can live your life by them.

Micro-Aggression sounds to me like a term suggesting that the person accused is too much of a wimp to be properly aggressive. Never frigging call me MICRO-Aggressive. You can call me "aggressive" or you can call me other appropriate terms, but Micro-Aggressive sounds like the maid that Al Gore tried to rape in Portland, the "crazed sex poodle" thing.
Professors at the University of California at Berkeley have been officially warned against saying such things as "America is the land of opportunity." Why? Because this is considered to be an act of "micro-aggression" against minorities and women. 
Supposedly it shows you don't take their grievances seriously and are therefore guilty of being aggressive toward them, even if only on a micro scale. 
(I don't take their grievances seriously - nor do I take the grievances of angry Muslims seriously who want to impose Sharia on me - nor do I take the grievances of the North Koreans seriously. I don't take Rachael Dolezal, Hillary (The Bitch of Benghazi) Clinton, Al Sharpton or Bruce Jenner seriously. I don't take NBC seriously. There's a lot that I don't take seriously.) 
You might think that this is just another crazy idea from Berkeley. But the same concept appears in a report from the flagship campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana. 
If you just sit in a room where all the people are white, you are considered to be guilty of "micro-aggression" against people who are not white, who will supposedly feel uncomfortable when they enter such a room.
To date, I have never been uncomfortable sitting in a room full of white people. My military unit was almost always white. The SAS guys that I worked with were all white. My family is all white. When my kids and in-laws get together everyone is white. When I visit friends in Arizona, they're all white. Why would I feel bad about sitting together with my kids, their husbands and their husband's families or any other white people? I don't care if non-white people show up in tow, but I am quite comfortable among whites, and that may not be politically correct.
Current attempts by the Obama administration to force low-income housing to be built in middle-class and upscale communities are on a par with forcing people to buy the kind of health insurance the government wants them to buy — ObamaCare — rather than leaving them free to buy whatever suits their own situation and preferences.
Is that Micro-Totalitarianism?
