Proved you wrong, Hurf.


There are differences in predictive power at play here. The arena of political actors and action is far too complex to lend itself to very accurate, long-term predictions. Coupled with this, the fact that politics can swing pendulum like at nearly a moments notice, absolute predictions are ill advised.

With dwbh we have a consistent behavioral pattern that, so far as I know, has never been deviated from.

It's the difference between making a prediction based upon linear data and nonlinear. No comparison.

I don't always agree with the substance of your posts but I have to admit you have some of the best one-liners. And in this case I like the substance too.

So this manual, or whatever you want to call it, reads like a disgruntled list of grievances that could be summed up more concisely as "Politicians are dishonest, opportunistic, and without principle."

That's fine that you feel that way, but the reason you're getting this negative reaction is that everyone has already heard these complaints a million times, and we all know where it comes from. That you are airing your grievances under the guise of somehow educating us is rubbing people the wrong way.

The main requirement these days is they be silver tongue blowers of smoke. People love that, and take it hook,line,sinker, every four years. **==

Did a Google Search.

This was posted originally on another forum, username Wendell Phillips, in 2008.
