Why aren't cdc stats ever published regarding gun DEFENSE? Yes, I know that whether the opposition possessed a firearm or whether it was truly necessary would provide better context to the statistic. BUT, why is that stat NEVER published?

I wish the left thought like that.

Check out this link from HP. The title is misleading.

We tied into the existing beach elevation(a couple hundred ft away from dune) so how is it anything to do with rising sea levels? Lefty media completely exposed at my workplace by that simple fact. The beach is 75% umbrella/beach towel/tourist space and 25% hurricane prevention in all honesty.

Unfortunately, many of these polls from the major pollsters are self-admittedly biased in favor of Democrats. Some are worse than others, and it's kinda unclear if it's intentional or unintentional due to the specific demographics they may target for opinions. But just from looking at that... I'd assume a good 55% or more of the people they asked were 18-25.

And HOW - THE - FUCK do Nixon and Johnson get more favorites than Truman, and AS MANY as Roosevelt? That's Fishy as fuck right there.

A little more info about the major pollsters:

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/which-pollsters-to-trust-in-2018/

If you scroll down to the graph, it would appear that "plus-minus" and "avg error" might be the most important stats, but look at the last column. ALL of them show bias towards the Democrat candidate.

Modern Edukayshun



I DVR'd that Serengeti show that Discovery premiered Sunday night, and I was watching it last night thinking... at what point do the lefty windbags start infiltrating nature shows and cherry picking things and only showing things that support their philosophies. For example, when a female lion and her 4 cubs got pushed out of a pack... I wonder how many emails they'll get from these loony fuckers complaining that their "nature show" about fucking "WILD animals" doesn't support the modern progressive concepts of inclusiveness and universal acceptance.

And then I wake up this morning and see this. And I am now assured that, yes, such people do exist and they are completely serious about these ridiculous ideas.

The future of humanity looks bleaker by the day.

Yeah the poll is fucked. It's not just catered to Democrats but millennials in general. I was born at the end of the Carter administration, most of the people that voted in that poll at the end of the clinton administration.

That's our electorate.

A new collection of footage from the Evergreen student disruption:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Wny9TstEM


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtELlzi7X-g

:ohlord:

Amazing to see a whole row of professors each running through a laundry list of apologies for their immutable characteristics: "I'm sorry I'm white, I'm sorry I'm straight, I'm sorry I'm male, I'm sorry I'm good at math and science."

This is what I'm seeing on social media now

Indeed.

I found this article, published a couple days ago, relevant to the extraordinary political polarization we're now seeing:

How to Determine Who is Hallucinating about Politics

(Although: the author does seem to use "predicts" as a synonym for "explains" in places.)
