Yep, very slow news day and weekend (laughing). Yet, some take this stuff seriously? What next? A person who votes Republican packed the books at Amazon? A Democrat working on the assembly line attached the door to my new car? The check out clerk at the local grocery voted Libertarian in the last election? The server at a local "mom and pop" breakfast place harbors "socialist" tendencies? What if all of them attended church? And celebrated Mother's Day? Ohhhhhhhh, the complications! Enjoy the holiday everyone ... even though it is "tinged" with socialist tendencies!
The Declaration of Independence was not written anonymously ... Neither was the Constitution ... Nor the Bill of Rights ... Gettysburg address ... Free expression has costs and benefits ...
I'm David Smith (wink). You didn't think it would be unilateral, did you? My idea is like fivethirtyeight.com ... when you post you are linked to your id on facebook or other social media. It calms folks down Enjoy the Labor Day weekend ... God bless.
Ever notice the internecine disagreements are the worst at TH? Posters calling each other names ... posters calling candidates and officeholders names? Is this public dialogue in 2014? Or is it the mask of anonymity? I think the latter. Circulate a petition to TH .... eliminate anonymity on the board.
So ... you don't like electoral democracy?
All Muslims? The ones who go to work, raise their children .... and love America? The ones who know more about American history and its wonderful traditions than others? The ones who signed up for the military? I think you overgeneralize and fit all Muslims into one box.

Good, good, good. We're getting somewhere. A correlation is a good place to begin. While not "causation," it is the starting point. So ........ Show me the correlation? A correlation is a statistic that measures the relationship between two variables. What are the variables? What is the magnitude of the correlation. Where can I find the data you cite? Thanks, Happy Labor Day.
