My final thoughts about polls (for what its worth)...

In college, I had a Chinese grad student who taught my statistics section. He constantly pronounced the word "statistics" as "sadistics".

I used to think he was mis-pronouncing the word, but now I think he was right...

Changing the election date is a great idea! Please see below...

It's the first great idea from our so-called president! The best way to fool the Russians is to move the election date to this coming Tuesday! They won't be ready to interfere, they think they have months left to prepare!

An odd comment from a small business owner...

A sandwich shop "investor" (owner, I guess) in this article makes a strange comment when discussing the federal unemployment enhancement:

"If the government is paying more to stay home, why would those people be out there risking their lives"

What I would like to ask the shop owner is "why are you open if you acknowledge that you are forcing your employees to risk their lives?"

Stupid Florida is stupid...

So yesterday was the day I was supposed to log onto Florida's unemployment website and claim benefits for my most recent two weeks of unemployment. This has been working smoothly for me lately, though the website still had random glitches that kick you out.

Anyway, now the website has no link for me to claim weeks, and there is no information about why. Also, the DEO had not put out any information on their site, or given info to the news organizations.

Now, two days after the change took place, Florida finally lets us know that we have to resubmit applications due to the change in fiscal quarter. I mean, they knew this would be happening, and just left all of us out of the loop.

tldr: Florida has terrible communication with its citizens.

Our trump-humping, islamophobic tax collector has resigned! (Seminole County)

His bigotry wasn't enough to get the resignation, he had to go and impersonate a political opponent on social media. Just another trumper getting caught creating "fake news".

Fireside Chat reading of the Ukraine call "transcript"

Please please hire Christopher Walken and John Malkovich to do the reading!

Florida man logic fail: difficult to claim SYG in case of grenade attack...

Facts of the case: Store owner shoots customer who is pulling away in his car, because owner thought customer had thrown a grenade. Owner claims he was standing his ground.

Logic: If you fear that someone has thrown a grenade at you, why would you continue "standing your ground"? Wouldn't you immediately dive for cover? The video here shows the owner exiting his store and immediately opening fire on the car as it pulls away.

The best people!

Your stable genius, folks!

2016: Trump nominates Tillerson as SecState: "His tenacity, broad experience and deep understanding of geopolitics make him an excellent choice for Secretary of State," Trump said in the statement.

2019: Trump trashes Tillerson: “Rex Tillerson, a man who is ‘dumb as a rock’ and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State..."

Let's talk about my Patriots!

For years, we have witnessed many comments on this board concerning the New England Patriots and their "love" of Trump. Some go so far as to say us New Englanders should shun our own team due to the possible political opinions and actions of Bob Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom "GOAT" Brady.

I disagree.

We already have several players state they will not visit the White House if invited. One, Duron Harmon, has even suggested he would like to do as the Warriors did and meet with Obama instead! To me, this suggests that the Pats are indeed a team I could support, since they have players of this great moral strength!

tldr: Not All Patriots!
