Obamacare setback

 

This is not vindication for the Republican opponents. It highlights an unavoidable fact – that millions of Americans are really quite sick, and poor.

What would be more cost effective ?  More subsidies, public healthcare via expanded Medicare ? A revamping of health for profit (the fallacious conservative argument that it would handle more people more cheaply) – or should we just watch them die ?

OBAMACARE

When will the undecided voter–decide ?

 

In their book “The Timeline of Presidential Elections,” Robert Erikson and Christopher Wlezien show that voter preferences tend to be very stable in the fall,
but that campaign observers -- the authors analyze people betting money in online political prediction markets -- tend to assume those preferences are far more volatile."

https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2012-09-26/why-undecided-voters-won-t-be-deciding-this-election

The argument then is that the block of "undecided voters" is really more about hope by the political operatives, than reality.



"...the candidate that is most engaging and least offensive is the candidate who wins this essential bloc—and therefore the election.
They’ll tell you, and tell themselves, that they’re voting for the candidate with the best ideas.
But they’re really voting for the one who they believe is most “on their side.”

http://time.com/4424053/frank-luntz-the-myth-of-the-undecided-voter/

In the end, subtlety will sway more undecided voters than the sledgehammer.


"The 28 exceptions to the Incumbent Rule help support the theory on why this happens.
Many challengers who did not get a majority of undecideds in the election were recent or current holders of an office equal to the one they were seeking.
Voters were equally or more familiar with the challenger's past performance in a similar office, so the challenger assumes incumbent."

http://www.lib.niu.edu/1989/ii890428.html

This analyis tries to promote the theory that undecideds tend to vote for the challenger to an incumbent.
This approach is an attempt to use mathematical precision - but as is very obvious,
there are really too many exceptions using this approach to find a generalized and simple rule.

 

manafort-trump-talking

 

All analysis tends to agree that undecided voters tend to be those that are the least interested in the election
The actual (apparent) interest in any particular candidate as in the huge crowds that Trump often pulls, is really not a good indicator of how these people will vote - if they bother to vote at all.

It is not really the issues that he claims he can solve - but the opportunity to vent anger at a system that has passed them by,
a sense of entitlement that has no laudable arguments except what they perceive as their  traditional birthright.


Where Trump falls very short is that while he does present himself as a champion for this large neglected block of blue collar workers (as did Bernie Saunders),
he offers no real remedy at all - except 'trust me'.
This combination of (often vulgar) pandering showmanship - with no uncomfortable and complex narratives - is really entertainment for the undecideds.
not clarity.

WHY DO WE PUT UP WITH THIS CRAP

 

A CONSTANT STREAM OF BELLIGERENT BULLSHIT.

CNN and other networks argue that the voters need to see all the candidates.  I would suggest that that is a half truth.  His outrageous vulgarity attracts sensation seeking viewers.  But enough is enough.  He is just pushing your buttons CNN, NBC, CBS and FOX.  Stop it – enough already.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.




Let us compare what the parents of the two presidential hopefuls did and make our own conclusions.

Father of Donald Trump ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Trump ) 

  • In 1927, Trump was arrested at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Jamaica, Queens
  • Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee in 1954 for profiteering from public contracts, including overstating his Beach Haven building charges by US$3.7 million.
  • In 1973, the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division filed a civil rights suit against the Trump organization charging that it refused to rent to black people. 


Grand Father of Donald Trump (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Trump)

  • Owned the Arctic hotel which was open 24 hours a day and advertised "Rooms for ladies,"(aka brothel) which included beds.
  • When describing the Arctic in a letter to the Yukon Sun newspaper, [a journalist?] wrote: "For single men the Arctic has excellent accommodations as well as the best restaurant in Bennett, but I would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings – and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.


Father of Hillary Clinton (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_E._Rodham)

Mark Cuban apologizes to world for Trump's nomination



Celebrity businessman Mark Cuban on Thursday night apologized to the world for the GOP's nomination of Donald Trump for president. 
"Dear World. Please ignore what the loud guy in the suit is saying. Americans are nothing like him. We love our country and are proud of it," Cuban said in a tweet that got nearly 20,000 retweets.

A Muslim Comedian is exiled to the USA

In his native Egypt, Bassem Youssef weathered cardiac surgery, the Arab Spring, and government-ordered arrest. Little did he know it was all survival training for the deluge of lunacy that awaited him in America. I’m talking, of course, about the rise of an aggrieved draft-dodging, Oompa Loompa-handed brat from Queens: Donald J. Trump.


The poorly educated.

Dear Ivanka, May be you skipped the civics lessons (did your father bully the teacher in to giving you passing grades ?). 
Let me educate you this once. A president does not make laws, he signs them in to effect or veto/s them. 
Laws, also called bills, are voted on by the US Congress.

.
This picture defines the character of Trump's two sons.

 
And, this is the level of intelligence of Mike Pence, who thought it was important to pass laws covering his version of the first amendment, to explicitly make discriminations legal in his state. How perverted one can be to take a freedom of all people and convert it to an atrocity on few people.

How Trump managed his casinos

"The contractor who provided the onion domes for the Taj Mahal casino had to eat $2 million in losses. The contractor who supplied the Carrara marble from Italy ended up filing for personal bankruptcy. The contractor who put in the restroom partitions had to lay off his brother.
"A quarter of a century has passed since Donald Trump refused to pay in full 253 contractors who helped build his Taj in Atlantic City. But for many of them, it could have happened yesterday.
"'We got next to nothing,' said Michael MacLeod, whose 40-person studio made the giant elephant statues at the casino's entrance. 'I took a big hit.'
"After the Taj opened in April 1990 [Donald Trump], the self-anointed King of Debt owed, $70 million to contractors employing thousands who built the domes and minarets, put up the glass and drywall, laid the pipes and installed everything from chandeliers to bathroom fixtures. A year later, when the casino collapsed into bankruptcy, those owed the most got only 33 cents in cash for each dollar owed, with promises of another 50 cents later. It took years to get the rest, assuming the companies survived long enough to collect."

BIG fraud in NYC.

This is really outrageous. It looks as if De Blasio's supporters are shrinking even further. It is either sheer incompetence or something much worse to allow a resource for the most vulnerable in society - those dying of AIDS - to be sold of for profit. And even then there should be a public inquiry as to how such a huge profit was pilfered from the taxpayers of New York:
"Village Care sold Rivington House to the Allure Group for $28 million in February of 2015. Allure subsequently paid the city $16.1 million to lift the two deed restrictions from the building, which mandated that it be used solely for nonprofit, residential health services. Allure flipped the property to the Slate Group, luxury condo developers, for a $116 million in February after the restrictions were lifted."

Should intolerance be fought with more intolerance?

Here is an example of so called "left wing" intolerance.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-cruz-billboard-rnc_us_57869167e4b03fc3ee4efde4
The objectives of "Planting Peace" are reasonable & essential, but the billboard that they have put up can be construed as very offensive to many people.

Just as to us actions & posters of Westboro Baptist Church members are unacceptable
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2014/03/21/westboro-baptist-church-pickets-funerals/6688951/. They violate all the norms of decency in a civilized society, by citing their (misunderstood) right to free speech.

One has to realize that the jury is still out on whether sexual preferences is a result of nature or of nurture or both. Each side points to studies to prove their point. While the discussion is necessary on academic levels, public spaces must be sexual preference neutral.

Does the left wing not loose their moral superiority by behaving just as badly as people on the other side of the political spectrum?; whose behavior ranges from extremely offensive http://www.godhatesfags.com/, to simply retarded http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christopher-lamb/indiana-governor-bans-boy_b_9790626.html .

We thought the left wing wanted to raise the bar on the quality of our political discourse.

A beautiful poem about the good old days.

We'd all do better if we checked our feelings & emotions towards the good old days (as we believe they may have been) and not get driven like sheep to benefit only a few charlatans (who know exactly how the good old days were ).

Pigheaded political opinionators.


Time and again we have seen how writers of political opinion pieces on CNN work to drive the conversations in a contrarian direction, just to become visible.

We do not have any issue with people having and expressing their own opinions, however when you have a mouthpiece as big as CNN we believe one must be more responsible and diligent in what one says.

The current executive leadership of America is far more sophisticated in its thoughts and its operations, than what can be commonly understood. Consider the Obama administration's response to the Russian takeover of Crimea & the hostilities perpetuated against Ukraine about 16 months ago. With a few phone calls and some paperwork, we brought down the entire Russian economy for a couple of months, does CNN analysts even understand it, in hindsight or did they foresee how that would've worked? They were too busy telling us how Nato would/should be giving a military response to Russia. http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/18/opinion/allison-ukraine-civil-war/

We will not get in to what Kerry is doing & why, we will wait & watch. But, we encourage you to read the Washington Post's JIG link provided in the CNN article and make up your own minds.

For us Americans Syria is nothing but expense, expense which must be paid by the US/IRAN/RUSSIA/SAUDI/IRAQ(with whatever oil they have)/UK & other Nato countries all of who interfered in Syria and destabilized it together, not the US alone.
While it was unacceptable to allow Bashar Assad to barrel bomb civilian neighborhoods, we believe the response must have come from the UN. Some people think the UN is too sluggish.


This is our opinion on why every country we mention is at fault.

US : Encouraged/sat on sidelines when so called Arab Spring belligerents were acting out in relatively stable Syria. Weaponized the FSA (Free Syrian Army),  the weapons eventually ended up with ISIS.
IRAN : Always tries to turn countries to have Shitte governments in the name of democracy, so that the Iranian clerics can gain hold of the populace's fancy and in turn control the policies of other countries. Assad was not beholden to Iran, before this mess started.
SAUDI : Always tries to counter balance IRAN, because they live under constant fear that once powerful enough, Iran will run them over. One of the sponsors of Arab Spring.
RUSSIA : Wary of US influence all over the world, constantly just does stuff to annoy us. Bombed hospitals in areas which were not under Assad's control.
IRAQ : The Shitte government marginalized the Sunni minority, making it easy for ISIS to get local recruits and being so lame.
UK : Once colonizing country now does the US & Israeli biddings, whatever shady stuff that involves.
Nato Countries : Turkey, Poland etc. usually do not care what someone is doing on their territory ( This includes ISIS & the US & who knows who else).
