Well, here’s a You.Gov poll recently released. (pdf) By all means, scroll through it. Most of it is mundane stuff, in which the responses are entirely predictable.
Now, typically on polls, I’d pick through and highlight the dishonesty as to how it was represented or how the questions were skewed to get a desired response. And, yes, this poll is no exception. But, some of this stuff leaves me scratching my head. But, we’re still talking about the election and stuff, so, I’ll focus on that.
One of the big issues Trump was elected on was the promise to repeal Zerocare. The left wailed about this and are still wailing and gnashing their teeth and whatnot. “Think about the poor people!!!!!”, they said. Care to venture why so many of the working poor lined up with that rich guy?
Yes, in only the income category of $100k or more do the majority believe it was either a success or neutral. What part did they not get about people being tired of elitist leftards telling us what is and isn’t good for us? BTW, look at the representation distribution on that part.
And, then, there’s the latest, or most reoccurring idiocy of fake news …… the “hacking of the election”.
Now, as to how the DNC and other were accessed, I’m not sure, but, a huge source of emails which may have swayed some of the election was from John Podesta’s email account. He victimized himself from a phishing expedition. Now, some people will say there’s no distinction between phishing and hacking. I disagree. In my view, a hack is when someone forcibly intrudes into someone else’ computer. Phishing is only successful if the compromised person gives access or information for access to some other party. There’s a difference, and there lies many IT careers in gulf between. Now, after reading a couple of other sites, I tend to agree that there should be another category between phishing and hacking victims, that is to what happened with Hillary’s home-brew idiocy. If Yahoo’s email system is more secure than what you’ve had set up, then, that’s a special sort of stupid which can hardly be categorized.
Now, for many, probably tens of millions if not into the hundred million, the above paragraph is a moot discussion, because they, themselves are a special sort of stupid.
I mean, other than the fact that no one has even alleged this, and the Dim president even got up and said there’s absolutely no indication this may have happened, we have 52% of the Dims believing this absolutely happened or probably happened. Now, sure, the fake news site, CNN, is having a go with a play on words, “election hacking”, but, …….. well, we see how many inform themselves with simply reading headlines.
Well, sure, the poor leftards had other things to do at the moment, like going to find some safe space to hug it out or play with playdough or Crayons, and whatnot, so, there’s that reason to not investigate beyond the headlines with something so important as the integrity of our elections.
But, let’s put this in a nutshell, for some poor soul who may not understand what happened.
I have seen absolutely zero proof the Russian government was involved in the compromised emails. None, whatsoever. In a couple of cases, apparently, whoever got the emails used code developed in Russia for said purposes. However, the code is available on line, so it could have been anyone from anywhere for any purpose.
Regardless of who did it and why, what happened is that someone found themselves in possession of emails which demonstrated the way the upper echelon in the Dim party and Clinton campaign conducted business. All that the phishers, hackers, or whatever did was to inform the American public about the on-goings of these people. —– And, it looked horrible.
Now, there are a few, too damned few, but a few people on the left who wish to hold the people exposed accountable for their misdeeds, lies, and whatnot. But, for the most part, rather than confront the contents of the emails, the left would rather scream about the source of the email release. I find this rather odd. I wonder what the reaction of the rank-and-file Repubs would have if a release of emails would show similar misconduct in the upper echelon of the Repub party and team Trump? My guess is we’d have a 3rd party tomorrow.
The problem with the people exposed is that they thought they’d never have their emails public. This brings a pertinent quote or two to mind.
The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out. ~Thomas Babington Macaulay
Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught. ~J.C. Watts
Further, when considering our friends on the left, I can’t help but think of this quote. It explains much of their actions and advocacy …….
I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am. ~Joseph Baretti, quoted by James Boswell, 1766 (commonly misattributed to Samuel Johnson)
