FiveThirtyEight is not just interesting to read because of the polling numbers, but the fact that Nate Silver offers so much criticism of polling reporting. I like the idea that his whole model adjusts slowly and is more concerned with projections, scenarios, and probabilities, and less concerned with the horse race and the current crackpot narrative that campaign reporters are dishing in.<br><br>It also doesn't hurt that his model has been right more often than any of the single polls, or even the polling averages.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
I think it might turn more if people get a load of McSame 1-2 years ago crying about too much regulation in the investment community,,, needing less govt oversight... <br><br>and then days ago says "I called for tighter controls before" (I heard the audio, a TOTAL 180 turn !! )<br>Some "straight talk", he can't even accept his own stance !!<br>What a liar !! ... or he has Alheimers'..<br><br>Same I heard on his Iraq war sell... I tell you, if Obama or another group puts these audio clips out it will infuriate many people... MCSame will be convicted by his OWN Words!! And he'll be seen to be the opportunistic flipper he is !! I couldn't belive he'd be so bold with the deception !!<br><br>I'm waiting.. he'll be a bug on a windshield !!<br><br>David (OFI)

Welll, if he sticks to his tax relief plan, that pretty much dooms him in this climate. His breaks are virtually zero up until around the 200K mark, and then they finally go exponential from there, curving out to stunningly enormous at the 2M mark.<br><br>Obama's is a flat linear big break up past 200K, then to a flat linear added tax burden that is fairly hefty. Now, a lot of people, especially the NeoCon base, vote the concerns of what they aspire to in their delusional Lotto-ticket-religion fueled fantasies (despite their lack of strength, talent, drive, initiative and fearlessness [basically everything ] to actualize that - they just drone on to their weary graves like most people), but most sane people in this climate abandon that delusional thinking, and just want to survive.<br><br>Of course, around 2M is where 80% of the money in America is, but at this point in time and for a really bad long spell, the best thing is to put more money into the pockets of the heart of the middle class and on down, where the heavy lifting, the [censored] work of America gets done. Further impact the heavy lifting, further impact America.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
A conservative told me the other day 42% of all adults in the US don't pay ANY tax.. (income)... <br><br>I can't belive that number is correct.. I asked him "Is Rush sure?" <br><br>if it is true, would some one steer me to the source !<br><br>sounds like a "Fair Tax" mantra.<br><br>David (OFI)

Yeah, I've always found that bit about voters slightly insane. Why does someone with less-than-stellar, in fact less-than-adequate income per annum even, vote for something that just basically worsens their position and only really improve it for about top 2-3%, like it often is the case with most tax breaks? Sure, they are often marketed with mumbo-jumbo and jargon that sounds rosy for everybody but in reality rarely is. Best example from over here (too) is how the tax breaks are usually percentages. <br><br>Percentages!? Percentages with the same percentage for everyone and then it is claimed it is fair. Tell that to someone who is at the lower end of the salary scale (working poor) when their break is really just pennies and not actually improving their position, or even better example, the majority of the working middle class who might get a little extra for their monthly consumption and most of it still goes to food while the miniscule minority gets a significant break (the same percentage) which then stays in their bank account, well, they might invest some.<br><br>Even Warren Buffett has said in the distant past that putting money in the pockets of the ultra-rich doesn't really stimulate economy, but putting that same money in the pockets of the poor and middle class ensures it goes back in to the system. Now, what's so hard to figure out here? Is it too simple or what?<br><br>All this is strikingly similar between here and there, and that part about Lotto-ticket fantasies applies perfectly all the while the true rich, the oligarchs, laugh on their way to the bank.<br><br>And gee, that Obama tax plan sounds *gasp* awfully socialistic...how could it be?! <br><br>
