LOL Global Warming stopped 16 years ago.... LMFAO
. Hey Lonesome I have a question for you: If the klan rally is 100 miles away and your jalopy can go 50 MPH how long will it take you to get to the rally?
These are all just signs of the desperate straights that the Republicans find themselves in. Hillary is going to be very very tough to beat, how many women will vote for her just because she will be the first woman president, and the Republican nomination will be trying to please two or three very different groups, with the two out groups likely to just stay home (Republicans, RWNJs, Christian Right). Then the 2016 election favors the Democrats in almost every way the 2014 election favored Republicans. Furthermore the RWNJs have turned so many groups off (Liberals, Immigrants, Women, Younger voters) that their small southern base is not nearly enough even with North Carolina and Florida who are Purple but I bet they go Blue. Never-mind the fact that much of the Republican base is dying off. It has not been easy to shake off these dinosaurs but it is just a matter of time. After these devastating losses the party will be forced to be a regional party or drop the nut jobs and the religious fools.
The evidence for the Klan's causal role
Notre Dame's Rory McVeigh, Brandeis's David Cunningham, and Yale's Justin Farrell looked at county-level presidential voting data from 1960 to 2000 in ten southern states, and coded each county based on whether a Klan chapter was established there between 1964 and 1966, when the organization was growing in response to the Johnson administration and Warren Court's increased vigilance on civil rights. Here are the counties identified:
The researchers wanted to capture the role that the Klan organizations themselves played, which is a tricky methodological problem to solve. There are a lot of other reasons why some counties might have seen more growth in support for Republicans, some of which could also explain the presence of a Klan chapter. For example, maybe a county that's just particularly racist both was fertile ground for the Klan and was less likely to vote for Democrats when they started backing civil rights — both had the same cause, but the Klan chapter didn't cause the increase in Republican support.
To take into account underlying racial animus, McVeigh et al controlled for the counties' levels of support for George Wallace, who made an explicitly segregationist third-party presidential bid in 1968. They also controlled for the level of support for Goldwater; his run galvanized Southern support for Republicans before the 1964-66 growth in Klan chapters and so is another factor that needs to be taken into account. Finally, the study controlled for changes in counties' racial makeup (counties whose black populations grew presumably saw less growth in Republican support), their level of economic prosperity and education (since Republican support is positively correlated with income and education), and whether the county had an NAACP chapter (which could have provoked the #$%$ to launch a branch in response).
They conclude that having a Klan chapter present was associated with a 2 percent bigger increase in Republican
The #$%$ helped Republicans win the South
In 1960, the American South mostly voted for Democratic candidates and was solidly Democratic at the congressional level. By 2000, it was solidly Republican in presidential politics and mostly Republican at the congressional level. The transformation, clearly, had something to do with race and the Civil Rights Movement. But a provocative new paper suggests that #$%$ activity — as opposed to the broader phenomenon of racism — played a small but meaningful role in the process. Counties with more Klan activity saw a more dramatic shift toward the GOP, a shift that stands up to a range of reasonable statistical controls and suggests that the Klan was really a difference maker.
Maybe if you actually learned how to write a coherent paragraph you'd get the debunking that you seem to enjoy, but until then you'll just get mocked.
its shameful how the right wing lunatics view elder Americans.
I agree these freeloaders will show up at an emergency room when they need help and guess who pays for that visit if they have no insurance, just irresponsible they should have a bigger fine.
No as an old fool you would get a pass. You can't expect someone with limited mental capacity and advancing age to rise above racist comments.
Yes I've written many things (all true) about the Right wing dirt bags on this board. I don't attack the President this one or the last personally. I will disagree with policies or actions but I never thought Bush was a #$%$, or Clinton was a murderer. Polecat just shows his bias when he calls people worshipers because we don't subscribe to his nut job views. Its so easy to mock him you can take anything he writes and use the same argument as evidence of something ludicrous. The best part is he has no idea that's whats happening.
Do you right wing nuts ever stop with the personal attacks on the President? he is a megalomaniac or an Islamic terrorist, a communist, out to destroy yada yada yada. Do you ever take a second and realize how CRAZY you sound? I can understand not agreeing with a policy or a direction but if you have to resort to personal attacks it speaks to the hollowness of your own beliefs.
Still no response to a reasonable post? Can the RWNJs only repeat the talking points they hear on their AM radio shows?
crickets chirping then off to the newest factoid to get outraged about. Once that one turns into nothing it will be off to the next then next. The RWNJ arguments always point to a low probability high damage event and then claim its going to happen.
Wow Dr. Obvious has joined the message board. Of course massive unfunded spending is not a good thing. Neither are irresponsible tax cuts. Kansas is suffering from a massive budget shortfall because of irresponsible tax cuts. You can swerve too far to the right or left.
Polenut-job only knows how to make extreme unsubstantiated statements. There is no use trying to reason with him. He is an unapologetic ignoramus and basks in his own stupidty.
I didn't even know that traitor was still alive. Not surprised to find out he is on fox the network for traitors.
