  • The Dunning-Kruger Effect may help explain Trumpís ongoing support

    The Dunning-Kruger effect refers to a bias in which people with little knowledge in an area believe they have superior knowledge. New research suggests this is affecting politics.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

      At this point, if you are still supporting Trump, you are racist, unbelievably naive, or just plain stupid.

        Or you like money enough not to care about all that stuff.

              I have been arguing with liberals on Facebook today about the most efficient way to lower drugs prices. Their solution, of course, is that government should set price caps through Medicare.

              I've argued that less regulation (of patents and FDA) is needed in order to promote competition to reduce prices through supply and demand economics.

              Their response is that competition does not lower prices, and they used the Epi-pen as an example to support that argument!

                Sadly, the Justput outage and my injury were timed in such a way that my election watch suffered almost totally.

                  FWIW...your analysis of the election is something that I always looked forward to.

                      Republicans are doing much better so far in Florida than they should be.

                        Iím hoping the early polls are misleading. But Iím not optimistic.

                            Illinois is $600B in debt (this reflects money owed for benefits that have already been earned).
                            The annual budget is $40B (reflecting the recent income tax increase).

                              It's estimated that California has somewhere between 1.3 and 2.3 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities, and so far every election has enacted more bond sales across the board.
