1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Obama a Muslim? on: September 03, 2015, 03:58:51 pm
Here's what I never got about the birther thing: Let's say Obama was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii. He'd still be a US citizen and eligible for the Presidency by virtue of his mother being an American citizen (a la Cruz or George Romney), so what's the big deal?
His mother had not lived in the United States for 5 years after the age of 14.

I didn't realize this used to be the case. Thanks.

Justin Beiber's "Baby" has 3.2 million likes to 5.1 million dislikes, but that doesn't stop him from being rich.

Sure, but you can't lose money simply for people disliking you. You can lose elections for that reason, though.

The rest of the state is easily better, though Seattle is the best large city in the country.
6  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Just why is WV and environs relatively Godless? on: September 02, 2015, 02:50:26 pm
They're "churchless", not Godless. West Virginians are incredibly atomistic when it comes to religion, in that they tend to attend very small, very local churches ("mountain churches") that get ignored in ARDA surveys.

Although West Virginia is reported to have a low rate of religious adherence, it is above the national average rate of church attendance. Sociologist Samuel S. Hill, comparing data from the North American Religion Atlas and the American Religious Identity Survey, concluded that a "disproportionately large number of West Virginians" were not counted.

While Jones et al. (2002) acknowledge the underreporting of their census statistics (solicited from known, organized religious bodies), Shortridge (1976) believed that in the case of Appalachia, in contrast to the rest of the nation, these privately-funded censuses of church membership could be sources of "large statistical error" because of the propensity of Appalachia to foster autonomous churches, so-called mountain churches (see McCauley 1995), not associated with the larger, reporting bodies. Because many earlier studies of membership and attendance rely on these secondary sources, significant errors, if present, would certainly suggest that the current understanding of the nation's religious landscape is inadequate. In her study of Union [County]... Andrews (1990) found that the published sources (Quinn et al. 1980) underestimated churches by over 40%.

The rules were stupid to begin with, but tweaking them this close to the debate is really weak.

LFP is unquestionably down, but that's independent of the economic conditions and almost entirely due to the rising proportion of retirees.

18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Planned Parenthood Videos Were Altered on: August 27, 2015, 03:55:32 pm
You left out this part:

Quote
The analysis commissioned by Planned Parenthood covers the first four videos and transcripts from the Center for Medical Progress, which were recorded in California, Colorado and Texas.

I don't really know much about this issue and don't care much, but there's a difference between something being altered and something being made to lie. I haven't seen anything conclusively showing the latter.

His average has only gone down lately thanks to the Rasmussen outlier.
