James Stimson knows as much about public opinion as anyone in America. He has been tracking the nation’s policy preferences for more than 20 years using a “policy mood” index derived from responses to a wide variety of opinion surveys involving hundreds of specific policy questions on topics ranging from taxes and spending to environmental regulation to gun control.
The latest update of Stimson’s policy mood series suggests that the American public in 2012 was more conservative than at any point since 1952. (Actually, since mood in each year is estimated with some error, it seems safer to say that the current level of conservatism roughly equals the previous highs recorded in 1980 and 1952.) While the slight increase in conservatism from 2011 to 2012 is too small to be significant, it continues a marked trend that began as soon as Barack Obama moved into the White House.
Liberals should just go all in and blame climate change on the white male. If you're going to take a lie this far, you might as well go all the way and we all know that liberals hate white males.
I don't see it but whatever. He came out and said his sole objective is to destroy Whatamarket. That's being pretty open in my book.
I'm not sure how many ids he has. Certainly not as many as Veg.
Everyone knows he's an idiot so the knowledge stuff doesn't matter. Nobody takes him seriously so...
What is he deceitful about? He is open about thinking the system will collapse. He is open about his fraudulent climate religion. He is open about being a bear and thinking the world will end tomorrow. He is open about hating organized religion.
He is certainly evil but I don't see any subtleties or deceit. He pretty much speaks his mind.
It's not subtle at all. Puddy is an open book. He doesn't really hide anything.
Are you going to take a stab at buying the EURUSD at 1.275? It looks like a lock at this point. Probably a decent bounce from there.
Bull poo. Jobs were never meant to exist for workers to receive a certain salary. Jobs have ALWAYS existed because there was a task that needed to be done. That's it, that's the only reason. The market compensates you based on the value of your labor, which can vary depending on the complexity, need, time, etc.
It is easier to move globally than ever before and the simple truth is that tens of millions of people in this country could make a much better living elsewhere.
The only asinine policies are a result of government intrusion, which artificially makes prices more expensive than they should be (education, insurance, housing, autos, etc.).
If you're in the south, there are water moccasins in the lakes. That is a huge disadvantage.
You were wrong about NG. I don't remember your DUST call.
After all, Ray Rice is black so he can never be guilty of anything. He is only a victim.
But it doesn't look like it will be this day unless we get some late selling, which would likely take us quite a bit lower.
Most likely. 196.5 area is where the huge support line of the bull is. It will break sooner or later though.
Thanks. Sounds like a pretty good plan. Much better than the free handouts that allow fat phuqs to sit on their butts all day and eat McDonalds.
I don't know what CCC is Pud since I'm not 60 like you are. What is a "hand up"? Sounds like another worthless handout. There is countless evidence that shows that continued handouts only lead to dependence and take away any incentive for people to improve their lives. Why does the left deny that since they claim to be intelligent? If you want to help them, cut them off the benefits and get them working.
I would like to know since you're the board's most distinguished "scientist". Why does the left, which claims to favor science, want to support these losers who only drag society back?
If you believe in evolution and survival of the fittest, why not just let them fend for themselves and let the best and brightest of the gene pool advance the human race at a much quicker pace? Do you or any other liberal really think these losers would survive in the past? They are coddled by the government teet and would die within a week without it.
