Biden’s campaign is shaping up to be an interesting social experiment

Biden's campaign is, I think, the first presidential campaign to have ever been done with literally zero human interaction. He has billionaires dropping hundreds of millions of dollars a piece on television and online advertising in a handful of swing states, but he has absolutely no ground game to speak of. The campaign set up … Continue reading Biden’s campaign is shaping up to be an interesting social experiment

On “Cuties” and protecting children from toxic influences

When a child first catches adults out -- when it first walks into his grave little head that adults do not always have divine intelligence, that their judgments are not always wise, their thinking true, their sentences just -- his world falls into panic desolation. The gods are fallen and all safety gone. And there … Continue reading On “Cuties” and protecting children from toxic influences

The land of fire and ice

Disaster selfies. (Associated Press) It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.Ansel Adams Oh beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt plain.America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.George Carlin You think … Continue reading The land of fire and ice

Palm Beach, 1905

I had this idea to use vintage travel prints from around Florida as decor in our new mid-century modern house in South Florida (assuming everything works out, fingers crossed). In the process at looking at those, I found this picture of Palm Beach from 1905. How cool is this?

Gun sales top 3 million for 4th straight month

I missed one of my top election proxies... End-of-month reporting from the FBI on background checks for new firearms purchases. Remember, this UNDERESTIMATES gun sales, as not all firearms-related transactions involve an FBI background check, and it obviously excludes outright illegal sales. (Given the number of Antifa brats with domestic violence charges that are toting … Continue reading Gun sales top 3 million for 4th straight month

Local polling suggests Biden has lost Miami Latinos to Trump

Following up on the topic of how bad national corporate media polling is now, a new poll from the Miami Herald suggests Trump has a larger share of Miami's Latinos than Biden and that Biden is dramatically under-performing Clinton in what has historically been a major Democratic stronghold. That directly contradicts national pollsters that say … Continue reading Local polling suggests Biden has lost Miami Latinos to Trump

A thousand people successfully double-voted in Georgia primary

One of the biggest criticisms of allowing widespread absentee voting is that it could potentially allow people to vote twice. A person applies to vote by mail, mails in their ballot, and then shows up on the day of the election to vote in-person. Democrats call this a "conspiracy theory," but it is something that … Continue reading A thousand people successfully double-voted in Georgia primary

Why does political polling suck so much?

Back in the 2016 election cycle, I texted back and forth with a lobbyist friend in Washington DC nearly every day sharing counterpoints to political polling. Nearly everyone I knew was voting for Trump, and the folks who were voting for Clinton had lost it mentally in ways I could not describe. They were becoming … Continue reading Why does political polling suck so much?
