It is both The Left and The Right. That have as their Foundation. A belief in their Superiority. And therefore, the Right to Control The People. Because the Inferior (they don't know what is best for them) People. Are incapable of making their own decisions.

Clyde that kinda sounds like a representative democracy.

Negative.

Democracy, without a Foundation of Law. Is just Mob Rule.

Elections must have very limited consequences. The Law is Paramount.

Unlike The Beliefs of the Evil Right, and the Evil Left:

Neither 51% of the people, nor 90% of the people. Can take away our Individual Rights.

The Right only mentions groups, not individuals, for 'Protection'.

The Left only mentions groups, not individuals, for 'Protection'.

Have you noticed that Hate Movements (Left and Right) only speak of Groups, not Individuals.

Protecting the Individual Rights of Whites, Asians, Blacks, Men, Women, Straight, Gay, etc. And not placing any Individual Inferior, nor Superior according to whatever group you wish to assign them. Is NOT the agenda of The Right, nor The Left.

As much as I identify as a Civil Libertarian in full support of individual rights, I have to disagree with you. It isn't the left's solutions that are destroying individual rights. The individual rights that are being destroyed are equal rights for gay marriage, the right to use a bathroom according to gender identity, and the right to control one's own body in women's reproductive rights. The liberal solution is to codify these rights in law so the more conservative people can't force their bigotry upon them...

OzzFan....

It is both The Left and The Right. That have as their Foundation. A belief in their Superiority. And therefore, the Right to Control The People. Because the Inferior (they don't know what is best for them) People. Are incapable of making their own decisions.

Both are bigots. Only some of their Targets are different. Or, as both evil sides state:

Our Targets Deserve it!

84 dead. As of now.
Including 10 CHILDREN!

And...
French health officials say 188 patients were taken to hospitals in the Alpes-Maritimes area after the attack.

Of these, 48 are in a state of "absolute urgency", and 25 are in resuscitation.

50 children were taken to Children's Hospital Laval Foundation after the attack. Two of them have since died.

Getting back to this Subject. Sorry for engaging Gary.

Watching both CNN and Fox. I am disgusted with them treating these attacks as a Police and Criminal problem. It is not!

It is, as many have correctly pointed out, A War.

Apparently The Voters were lying to The Media.

No lies, the media did not use a random sample. That is the real issue with media polls.

Yes they did at these Voter Exit Polls.

In two elections I voted in. The Media was attempting to take a 'sample' of certain Election Precincts, which in the past, were representative of the winner.

In both instances. I stayed around to see how they do this. Very informative.

The quantity of people who refused to comment, was large. The Media 'Polling' was only counting those who replied.

Perhaps 'Political Correctness', and not wishing to disclose any vote, which may subject the Voter to harassment among their peers. Results in large errors.

Perhaps in this Election. Where any Black, Hispanic, Latino, Women, may be 'cautious' in disclosing Trump support.

The 'Polls'. Showing Hillary winning. May be wrong.

And none of these freedoms are in danger. The freedoms that are being curtailed are those of the LGBT community, minorities, women's health rights, and oh yeah, blacks still have to fear the system that is supposed to protect them. And the people that are oppressing those rights are the ones saying the states have a right to tell women what to do with their bodies; that states have a right to dictate what bathroom an individual is to use; that states have a right to force burdensome identification cards for voting - that which is supposed to be an inalienable right.

OzzFan...

As a supporter of all you mentioned, and acknowledging the problems.

Your failure to understand the Solution(s) proposed by The Left. IE: Central Control, Bigotry against Individual's because of their Race, Gender, etc., not included in your list. Will destroy the Individual Rights of all.

Margin of error for sample of 400 ~ 1.58 * Margin of error for sample of 1000.
IFF samples are random and all answer when questions are put to them.


AND answer sincerely/honestly.

However, margin of error is NOT meant to cover these issues. m = critical value for confidence level * standard deviation / sqrt(sample size).

Problem with this election's polls. They don't appear to take into account the following:

Politically Correct Answers. And answers which would cause a Trump Voter to be ostracized by their peers.

Doubt it matters that the answer(s) are secret.

I reference the Kerry/Bush 2004 Election. Where the Exit Polls, of those who voted, showed an overwhelming Kerry victory. The American Media was 'Projecting' a Kerry Victory. Then, when the real numbers were counted...

Apparently The Voters were lying to The Media.

Perhaps this is happening today.

At least 80 dead, 18 seriously injured in Bastille Day terror attack in France.

We live in a sick world. :-)

Grieve for all lives cut short, by a monster.

By religion and the insanity of the belief you are correct and everyone else is wrong.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité!

Not just God Believers.

Atheistic Ideologies. Nazi, Marxist, et al. Have also murdered and enslaved over 1 Billion People.

Perhaps the problem isn't the Religion or Secular Ideology. But Murdering Psychopaths using the Religion and/or Ideology, to commit their heinous acts.

The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2016/white_house_watch

Mrs. Clinton’s six-percentage-point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, in a CBS News poll last month has evaporated. The two candidates are now tied in a general election matchup, the new poll indicates, with each receiving the support of 40 percent of voters.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/15/us/politics/hillary-clinton-donald-trump-poll.html?_r=0

Shocking isn't it that Hillary's numbers declined following the recent news coverage of the FBI investigation?

One has to wonder why you appear to acknowledge polls when thy favor one candidate, though dismiss them if they favor a different one. Does anybody remember who said "Regarding this election. Don't believe any poll."?

Hi bobby...

Yes, that was me. Always believed the polls were greatly underestimating Voters REAL Preferences.

Apparently The polls are now starting to correctly reflect what people are saying 'On the Ground'.
.
The Pollsters, Political establishments, Media, etc. Are still not understanding what is really happening.

The American Civil War was a civil war in the United States fought from 1861 to 1865. The Union faced secessionists in eleven Southern states known as the Confederate States of America. The Union won the war, which remains the bloodiest in U.S. history.
History repeats it's self?

Depends upon why.

The American Civil War was not only about 'States Rights'. But to continue Slavery in the South.

Any new 'problem'. Is also about 'States Rights', and Freedom from a growing and oppressive Central Authority.

Very different.


They're not different at all. At the time, from the south's perspective, they were fighting for state rights and freedom from a growing central authority telling them they had to free their slaves. They didn't think the federal government should have the right to tell them what they could do at the state level, and they felt the slave ownership issue should be handled by the states.

OzzFan...

Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Association, Freedom of The Press, Freedom from Central Controller's, etc.

Is not the same as Freedom to Own Slaves.

Well... Not in my world.

It is painfully obvious that the one not getting it is you.
Read the article and learn something rather that just posting your mistaken beliefs. Try using some facts if you disagree, and if you do have facts then go and argue them with the Washington Post

Obviously, two different Cultures arguing with each other.

Of course, both believe they are correct.

Has always been, is now, and will always be.

You are making assumptions again, that American cities are alone in having problems in some parts. That is absolutely not true. The thing that makes American cities unique is the access to firearms.

WinterKnight...

You are mistaken.

Understanding that is is almost impossible for Cultural Outsiders to truly understand Another Culture. I do understand you are referencing your opinion from another culture.

The USA Culture is neither European/British Light. Nor European/British Primitive.

BTW: According to US Law. Psychiatric problems (excepting the most extreme situations), and other related Medical Conditions. Can not be placed in any Data Base regarding the ability to legally purchase firearms.

BTW 2: The highest crime/murder rate in American Cities. Are usually those Cities with the most restrictive gun laws.

This thread is most likely just going to be a continuation of the Donald Trump thread.

Agree.

I will hold my nose and vote for Hillary.

I will be vomiting.

Just wanted to make sure you are posting about Clinton in a Trump thread, speaking to a group where few to no Hillary supporters exist. I'm right. Thanks.

Sarge...

If we had a Hillary Clinton for President thread...

The negatives might be more than Trump!

Can we (The USA) have two different candidates?

A Third Party Candidate, who will never get enough Electoral Votes. Will either ensure a Trump or Hillary victory. Or possibly just another Crony Capitalism Establishment Insider.

Because I grew up as a 'Street Kid' (take a swing at me, and I will hit you with a 2x4)

& there lies the problem.

+1

+1
Just shows that Clyde doesn't understand, because if he really believes using a force multiplier is the answer.

Then in the situation he describes he won't go and find a 4x2 he will use the nearest force multiplier he has and use a __________ [fill in the blank]

"Force Multiplier"

Hmmmmmm

Please understand what is REALLY happening on the USA Streets.

Those who neither Grew-up nor Policed 'The Street', have no true understanding. They either attack 'The Street' person, or give totally ridiculous solutions to the problem.

Their beliefs are from a Foundation of Ignorance.

"Education' has limited value. Let me give the following analogy:

Just because you 'educate' a 5 year old regarding the 'Facts of Life'. Doesn't mean they truly understand.

Hopefully, those who attack persons who have 'been there'. Have not, or will not, experience the same.

It is the stuff of nightmares.
