I always thought it was LT that started it... I guess not. Although it was a Bill Parcells/Giants origin...

If Bill Parcells wasn't such an asshole there wouldn't be Gatorade showers.

This is an interesting read, and it goes into how polls work. It explains why this poll looks so different than others, and it does so by exploring the background methodology of this scientific poll.

It may not be the most exhilarating read, but if you want to get an idea about how a poll can be scientific, but not necessarily predictive this article may help.

On a personal note, I think it is likely that Hillary has a lead among likely Caucus-goers, but the limited scope of this poll seems to provide a sample that is inaccurately small and I think the Caucus will be close.
A poll showing Hillary Clinton with a huge lead does a poor job of accounting for young people and unaffiliated voters, two strengths for Mr. Sanders.

+Ole Olson has it exactly right. Both of these polls are highly flawed in their methodology, and the fact that both were released within 24 hours of each other absolutely reeks of a coordinated, pro-Clinton effort. The objective is as clear as day: Demoralize Sanders' supporters by duping them into thinking that they're fighting a hopeless battle. As for how this strategy is working out for the corrupt, morally degenerate and intellectually bankrupt elite, I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I just made my third and largest donation to Sanders' campaign.

+Cliff Bramlett and I were having a discussion and I was going to respond to something he said, but he got angry and blocked me... can't say I am surprised... I was actually going to respond with the following, so if anyone wants to let him know that I was going to respond to his points and not simply dismiss his statements for not addressing mine feel free to let him know and/or put that up there (hint, it even involves me reviewing statements and discovering a factual error on my part):

+Cliff Bramlett 
1)  Cross Pollination DOES appear to be only a concern for famers. Monsanto relies on patents for protection of their product so they don't fear losing genetic material
2 and 3) Peanuts, riboflavin, saturated fats, etc.are already innocuously put on FDA labels (along with ALL of the ingredients gasp including things like artificial colors) 
4) If you, Monsanto, or anyone else is GENUINELY concerned about pesticides, appeal to the FDA to include it on labels. Anti-GMO people aren't demanding a scientific variant description for everything, and organic people aren't asking for a description of every chemical used. The labeling would be innocuous. FDA labeling is never overt. It requires some intent on the part of a consumer to find (e.g., I must turn over the box and read the fine print to get the riboflavin numbers... it is innocuous.


So, you got half of one point (item 1) because I didn't check on this because it is immaterial for anything I have ever been concerned about... since I am not a farmer and I do eat GMOs. Doesn't change my point about labeling at all, though (and also isn't a logical fallacy, it is a factual error).

Ha, I forgot to tag you this time because I assumed it would show up in your notifications, but if not +Cliff Bramlett , please read my (two) comments above. this comment is just to ensure you get them since I didn't tag comments (assumed you'd get them anyway, and no one else in here).

Stuff I've mentioned before (except the cloud city option, although it is interesting).

I made a post a while back explaining.

I basically nuked my G+. My personal sanity needed help, and I figured the best way to do it was to stop discussing politics/economics/etcetera with crazy internet people.

I removed everything that was even vaguely political... which left family, 2 tech feeds, and a few... odd items, which will show me things like this amusing gif (e.g., Philosoraptor and Jesus H. Christ).

I had considered re-doing my circles and adding back all of the political stuff, and making it not propogate back to my "Everything" view... but when I thought about it I realized I have a lot more personal sanity by not discussing things with "Open Carry" people or "Supply-Side Idealogues" or "Randians" or other such intellectually bankrupt people.

While you and a few others gave me thoughtful and intriguing posts, they all just get yelled in by trolls... and so the discourse is reduced to the worst logical fallacies and stupidity and outright intentional trolling.

If you have a suggestion for me to be able to view posts like yours without the constant influx of trolls, I'd be interested to know, but sadly the nature of social networking seems to break the ability of me to NOT hear from trolls if I follow anyone else's posts and try to communicate with them...

This video is a good intro to basic logic. I have a had a very hard time trying to discuss things with people who are unable to comprehend that their logical structure is simply invalid.
It is okay to be wrong. But isn't okay to be wrong because you choose to ignore basic reasoning.

Some perspective on religion and extremism.
 
About 195 million Muslims worldwide support suicide bombing and other acts of violence against civilians. as Bill Maher has often suggested in his show, which some people are unwilling to listen to, he's not saying all Muslims are bad, and that all Muslims want violence... but that's quite a few Muslims do. We can't keep shrugging our shoulders, and acting as if this doesn't exist, or calling it racist or Islamaphobic to point it out. As we have witnessed in our own country, the more religious the region is, the more likely that region is to commit violent acts. to make it clear, I'm not saying that everyone that is religious is violent, I am saying that the more extremist religious groups are more likely to be violent, and we can't simply ignore it for "religious freedom."
How many Muslims support terrorism? About 12 percent. Here’s why that’s worth knowing.

Important thing to note... Reagan was a staunch conservative, but even he could understand the basic principles under which Social Security operates... If only we had conservatives as knowledgeable and reasonable as Ronald Reagan today (statement more on modern conservatism than the merits of Ronald Reagan).

There was a time when conservatives had a reluctance to engage in foreign adventures, a measure of prudence even Reagan, a Cold War type understood and showed us in Beirut and Reykjavík, however military expenditures are a sacred cow that no one, either side of the aisle seems to want to touch.

+Christopher Hannigan I totally understand, I feel the same way, and even mute some of my own posts. You were important enough for me to notice being missing. If you ever want to talk, I'm here.

This is a slaughterhouse. Sells local grass-fed beef for very good prices. There is no storefront and it is not pleasant, but if you want quality beef at low prices this is the place to go.
