Simple rule to follow until Nov. 8th: Any insignia Trump followers wear is racist, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, anti-Religion of Peaceic, anti-genderidentityrespectingic, ignorant, ableist, nameist, and body shaming. Did I miss anything?

A guy just now on CNBC who polls millenials said their enthusiasm for the Hill dropped by 7 points after the debate..

Stick with the flag. We are dealing with these people---

Truest two paragraphs I've read in ages:

But Noah’s mentality is the modern liberal mindset. If only we didn’t have a military the world would be nice to us and we wouldn’t need a military. If we banned guns bad guys wouldn’t have them. If we raise the minimum wage dramatically it won’t impact employment. If we redistribute wealth it won’t dampen creativity, innovation, or hard work. If we let in all the Syrian refugees, they will all be so grateful none of them will become terrorists or insist on Sharia law.

To be a modern liberal is to be perpetually immature, which in itself is an annoying enough personality trait, but liberals are usually not content to just be immature, often pairing this with a certain condescending smugness, totally oblivious that their deep thoughts and well held philosophies are sophomoric and stupid when considered rationally.

Reposting from the previous thread:

've noticed that when the MSM develops a meme to drumbeat for a week, Trump dives in the traditional polls for awhile, but then he slowly rebounds. I can think of three possible explanations for this:

1) these polls are being deliberately massaged during the meme period in an effort to drive public opinion, in an effort to turn Dem hopes into reality.

2) a large portion of the electorate can't make up their minds, so when they hear the latest Trump is Hitler meme they decide they'll vote against him, but then the meme fades and their feeble memories fade along with it.

3) the response rates to the polls are so dismal--I've read as little as 5-10% --that when the next version of a Trump is Hitler meme comes spewing out of the MSM, the small subset of the population that becomes enraged by it are more likely to answer the phone this time and let someone know how they aren't going to vote for him because MSNBC said he called a fat woman Miss Piggy.

The thing is the LA Times tracking, which has been polling the same 3200 people on a rolling basis from the beginning hasn't gyrated up and down nearly as much as the more traditional polls, and has been holding pretty steady around a 4% Trump lead for quite awhile now. It doesn't make sense that the MSM memes could move opinion so easily with the population in general, yet the LA Times' 3200 consistently have been immune to the manipulation.

Now their 3200 sample could be skewed, but at least you can see if there is movement within it. Or not.

derwill, perhaps a bit of all three reasons.

I know I am hanging up on pollsters 4 or 5 times a day now.

pepe is evil.
the Gadsden Flag is raysiss.
the Betsy Ross Flag is raysiss.
The CSA Battle Flag is raysiss.
"All Lives Matter" is raysiss.
"Blue Lives Matter" is raysiss.
White people are raysiss.

The JustUs Department for "My People" Holder is good.
Sharia Law head chopper "refugees" are good.
Jack booted John Chisolm, Kevin Kennedy (and his BFF Lois Lerner) are patriotic.

right. I hung up on 6 different polls last night. Efemall.

derwill--I think the way those hamburger helpers polls (™ Mickey Kaus)..is the media stenographers pick a "narrative" , publish it, then the pollsters ask "Did you read or see a report that Trump..." "What do you think of such? Who do you choose, the Madonna Hillary or Trump?

Jack is Back!

I have never in my life been polled. I have lived in Florida, Maryland, Tennessee, DC, California, New York and overseas. i did do an exit interview in Germantown, TN after voting for Reagan in 1984.

I realize living in New York now it would be silly to poll me or anyone here. So, I can see why Buckeye who lives in Ohio would get polled so often. Just wondering if this is how the polls are skeweed?

Jack is Back!

...correction: I did live in Ohio but not at voting age. When I got out of Cincy I was voting age but there was no general election that year....

I was speaking with an LIV friend over the weekend who thinks Trump is a jerk and has a big ego, but despises Hillary, thinks she is pure evil, and that she will destroy the country. This friend said that she would never tell a pollster she is going to vote for Trump because she doesn't want to "get put on a list" in case Hillary wins. In fact she is paranoid that the federal government would somehow know how she voted. I reminded her we live in Idaho, and as far as the Dems are concerned the entire state needs to be shipped off to the re-education camps, but that there are also more guns here than people, so . . .

More Clinton lawbreaking and the FBI that will be ignored by the media.

sbw

We hang up on all poll-takers. And they call repeatedly every day.

I have another friend whose husband got polled during the Republican primary. He's a 67 year old white male. He told the pollster he was a 23 year old hispanic female.

I think a not insignificant portion of the population has become so distrustful of the government, the media, and the political parties that they aren't playing the game anymore. Whether that portion is enough to swing an election, I have no idea. I think it does account for Trump's existence in the first place, though.

23 years ago on this date we found out what it's like to have a Clinton in charge of the military.

Hijabs aren't symbols...

Did I read that correctly - Thomas Collins is looking for another bet, re: black voters for Trump? A minimum of 12%. 15% is reasonable. 18% is quite possible...

Dave (in MA),

Blackhawk Down?

My apologies to Porchlight. Looks Kaine is two-faced jerk of the highest order. Another Pelosi/Cuomo/Biden-Catholic.

Correct, JiB.

Captain Hate

So we're all in agreement that Kaine is a lying sack of shit?

Captain Hate

I'm leaving for the airport shortly so I have to make sure there are no misconceptions I haven't cleared up.

Jack is Back!

34% of Brits said they would not travel to the US if Trump is elected according to a new Torygraph poll. 23% said they like Trump (must be part of the Brexit crowd).

Buckeye

So we're all in agreement that Kaine is a lying sack of shit?

I certainly agree.

Jack is Back!

Have a great trip, CH and if you see Joe Leaphorn or Jim Chee, say hi for me:)

Buckeye

I can't figure out why the pollsters are so curious about my opinion.

Mrs. Buckeye sure is happy enough to ignore mine:)

Captain Hate

34% of Brits said they would not travel to the US if Trump is elected according to a new Torygraph poll.

Maybe they will cancel those stupid NFL games between two terrible teams, which could pretty much be any teams this season.

William Kristol in today's Weekly Standard allows a friend to make the case for Trump.
Never say never.

The Browns should go to England.
They couldn't do any worse over there.

One of my old mentors once said that the Brits were all either boors or queers.

Then his daughter married one:)

I reminded him that we both have English last names.

Absolutely not.

Calling Kaine a lying sack of shit is an insult to lying sacks of shot everywhere.

Have a great trip Captain
The Saguaro is beautiful as is the Grand Canyon.

buckeye,

Those 34% ers of Brits are just like the ones here who promise to more to Canada everytime a Republican is elected. They never move. And the Brits will keep coming here although not if the pound continues to decline like it is today.

Captain Hate

Thanks, JiB; my former roomie just texted me that he was at the airport 12 hours early so this isn't exactly getting off to an auspicious start. Plus before dropping Teddy at the dog lodge yesterday I took him for a romp at the dog park and he got me upset, after playing well with the other dogs, by acting aggressively with a young Malamute. The male I formerly had, Trane, used to infuriate me by picking fights with an amiable dog down the street for whatever dog trigger reason. Maggie was easy to figure out: she hated all other dogs.

Captain Hate

The Browns are playing better under Jackson than under previous head coaches; they could've won the last two games. I'm more encouraged about their future than I've previously been.

Beasts of England

Have a great trip, Captain!

Captain Hate

I won't use google maps, clarice.

Buckeye

Have fun CH!

Thomas Collins

Mmmm. . . . Another chance to get BOE to come up here and take me to L'Espalier, at the risk of another tat? I'll need to think about this. :-)

if any of you have a Yahoo email, your email has been read by the government since 2015. Courtesy of the Yahoo management.

If you have a different brand of free email, do not be smug. My impression is they all do this.

I have tremendous love for Joakim Noah. Tremendous! He is to be admired for many, many reasons. But the article is correct: he is quite representative of what has been done to the ability of the young to actually THINK in this country.

It's almost as if all college orientations should have some sort of mandatory convocation where John Lennon's song IMAGINE is played and discussed is a real way instead of listened to as pie-in-the-sky nonsense.

Facebook?  Hah, no way, no not never, no how.

I quit using email when ads pertinent to the content started showing up. Not as bad as rape, but still hard on the spirit.

Fortunately, email isn't very necessary for me. I pity those hooked on it, which is just about everybody.

Letters per snailmail are fun to write, but I don't have much need for that, either. I do text exhaustively, er, exhaustingly, but just suppress my paranoia about the loss of privacy there.

Porchlight

Thanks, JiB. They're none of them to be trusted an inch.

Are you watching the debate tonight? I have to take my daughter to gymnastics but I'll try to follow along if the other moms aren't too chatty. They better not try to engage me on politics. :)

Buckeye

I really don't worry about government snooping.

Any human being on the other end will be bored to tears.

Buckeye

They better not try to engage me on politics. :)

Give them an ear full if they do:)

henry

new thread. Putin wants you in it.

clarice b. for Brainiac

Whew, henry--I stopped planning criminal adventures on yahoo mail years before that--now they'll just be getting views of my Amazon orders.

henry

lol clarice. I suspect they get copies of those directly from amazon

RG: I have tremendous love for Joakim Noah. Tremendous! He is to be admired for many, many reasons.

I live a few hours from West Point, If Joakim would like to gain a little insight, I would be happy to visit with him for an hour over coffee, tea, or a beer.

I’d like to think we could come to an understanding.

If only you knew how to get him the message.

Never have I been so happy not to care about that fucking Pepe the Frog meme.

And God help those idiots who care enough to post on Twitter.
