Liberals and Islamists Both Want Change – for the Worse

One big problem we have regarding radical Islam in this country is not just a lack of assimilation, but a concerted effort not to. These “immigrants” and “refugees” have no interest in becoming Americans, conforming to our society, and many are repulsed by the thought. America is just a better place to live than the crap hole from whence they came.

The same can be said of liberals.

The latest Islamist terrorist, Akayed Ullah, is from Bangladesh. The country of Bangladesh is about the size of the State of Michigan, yet has well over 160 million people. That’s half the population of the entire United States living in Michigan. Who the heck wouldn’t want to leave?

But they’re not thankful to be here. It’s obvious that they are not when many insist on trying to Islamize America. Many immigrants and refugees refuse to live by American law and instead demand that we all change and adopt Sharia.

There are several iterations of old sayings that go: You can take the boy of the country, but you take the country out of the boy. There’s one about girls and trailer parks, and Hoods and hoodlums. None are very kind, but all have at least a grain of truth to them. read more

In 2016 – State Elections are of Equal Importance

If we are to believe the polls, it would appear that Hillary Clinton has the 2016 presidential election virtually locked up.

As the election draws closers, polls historically become more accurate. The reason for this is that the companies who conduct polls have in their best interest to not only pick the winner, but to be as close as possible to predicting the margin of victory.

Professional polling companies live and die by polls, so accuracy is key to a good reputation – which leads to elite status amongst pollsters and to many more future contracts.

Early on, pollsters have a lot more leeway to get things wrong and even skew the election to the candidate they prefer. But as time becomes short, their livelihoods depend on getting it right. You will see a shift from polling just “adults,” to polling “registered” and “likely voters.”

Knowing this about polls and barring anything such as a Bradley/Wilder effect, this is Clinton’s election to lose. For those unfamiliar, the above “effect” is a circumstance when those being polled say they are voting for one candidate, due to not wanting to appear racist or sexist, or what they may perceive as peer pressure, but actually cast their ballot for another.

Yes, just saying President Hillary Clinton does lend itself to suicidal thoughts, I know. read more
