Re: Decision 2016
On the subject of election prediction, the NYT felt compelled to write an entire column that can be boiled down to, "When we say something is 65% likely to happen, that doesn't mean it's 100% likely to happen." I find this a bit funny and a bit sad.

I couldn't read all of that. It was too annoying.

So they are like the weatherpeople, 65% of snow doesn't mean 100% snow is coming.

Though I guess people get used to that high of a prediction being a pretty confident one.

1. Gun control will remain unchanged and there are only a few shootings a year.
2. The finical sector has a vested interest in keeping things running smooth, so it might be okay. (Housing bubble not withstanding)
3. The Rich will get richer but they are already super rich so it might not be as noticeable.
4. The market will still likely favor Alternative energy as it is becoming cheaper, but the move from Oil will be slower.
5. There will be no wall - mark my words.
6. I don't think LGTBQ rights will be repealed. They may stagnate but unlikely to be repealed.
7. The Economy and Employment numbers will hopefully stay the course?
8. It will become harder to get an abortion, but not impossible.
9. Freedom of Religion will protect American Islamist from the Government.
10. The EPA will loose funding but will likely still do their job.
11. The DoE may change but it is unlikely to effect student results.
12. Trump has nuclear launch codes, but no one will let him use them. Right? RIGHT?
13. Trade will continue regardless and loop holes will be found for business's to keep doing business the same way.
14. NASA will loose funding for earth science but will still push to Mars.

A couple things that will likely be worse (but not by much)
15. I don't think they can entirely repeal health care act, but maybe.
16. The US's terrorist enemies have a new rallying cry.
17. Freedom of Religion will not protect American Islamist from the emboldened extremists.
18. Travel outside of the US will become more of a pain.
19. Immigration will take a hit but they aren't Americans anyway.
20. There will be no national investigation into Police brutality
21. The Poor will likely get poorer.
22. The rest of the world has lost respect for one of the Greatest countries on earth.

I think I almost called it on every point. I'm disappointed I didn't see the TPP/NAFTA/Tariffs thing. I'm frankly surprised by the continuing Russian Investigation too.

Thanks Dr.G that made my day. Crack that whip.

A great memory of 6th grade camp is some hoodlums wearing deflated red rubber balls(soccer size) on their heads and proclaiming they are Devo. :)
