Of Politics, Sports and Sex

OK, so there won't be a LOT on here about sex, but tell the truth, that's most of the reason you entered this site, right? So, I'll slip some things in from time to time just to keep you coming...back.

Since 1944, we've only raised taxes on the rich twice—in 1992 and 1994. The result? 23 million new jobs.

Why are the hardest battles to win not the ones we have with others, but the ones we have with ourselves?

Check new polls and keep the old, but some are from Nate Silver and others are Jamie's Gold

The heck with Nate Silver. I think my poll was the most accurate of all. 28 of the 36 voters on my blog said they not only wanted President Obama to win, but they predicted he would win.

Only one person said they wanted Obama to win, but didn't think he would, and I have a feeling that may have been me after the first debate. :-)

Once again, I am so out of step with majority opinion

Among my many thoughts about the recent election, all of which I wish I had written here as I thought of them, was this:

I think that TV political ads have come to be like political yard signs. When there are as many as we've seen in the past 6 months, they all blend together and only have an impact if the other side doesn't keep up.

I may be the only one, but I don't mind the political ads because I don't watch ads anyway. In fact,I wish there were more of them. I figure most of the funding for them comes from billionaires and corporations anyway, so it's a redistribution of their wealth to the media, who of course have such a left-wing bias, it helps the good guys promote the correct agenda anyway.

On the other hand, taking the low road, it has been found, will in fact get you to Scotland before me.

One will never truly lose an argument in which one takes the high road.
