ENOUGH ALREADY !!
2020 11 05
That's two nights now of watching the news making monkey fists and thinking about what on earth they are saying .. though I must NOT comment on the political content I certainly can comment on the newsworthy content .. I do watch 3 channels to try and get a good range of bull pOOPY .. and I think that falls into two categories
one is just sound bite nonsense with More volume then logical content and the second is so much statistical nonsense that the normal listener Is overwhelmed by statistics which is mathematics which they never understood in the first place . Object being to wash some idea through your head and leave probably two or three words of residue ..
TAckling one at a time here we go ...
Re: illegal voting.......‘ hundreds of buses went into New Hampshire and had people vote illegally” I did hear that maybe a few years ago but I heard that .. because at that time I thought there's no way in Massachusetts you could get one busload of people where there was not one in the group would not call the New York times and sell the story to them for a lot of money . that would be UN American NOT TO look for an angle TO make a Buck .. I know THAT ... if anyone walked into a bar where I was drinking (which is not likely to happen since I don't drink in bars .) and said “hands up for anyone who wants to go to New Hampshire to vote ILLEGALLY .”. if none of the 80 drunks that got on the bus had the presenCE to think ABOUT WHAT WAAS HAPPENING, , I would hope that the bartender would call his buddy at the Boston globe and say “have I got a story for you ..”
it just couldn't happen to put that many people together and have no leaks .. It is the American way .. thus proving that news was nonsence....
The second group of news producing people put out numbers and ideas which are meant to wash through your head before you have a chance to think about it much like the bus bit .. these sound better because they use numbers and statistics to sound very logical but let's just think about one .... “100,000 ballots were tossed into the system so therefore the numbers are all wrong . “ .....OK ...... 100,000 ballots that I think 200,000 envelopes also we put together with the little X in the proper spot and signature with a #2 pencil .. just how or where would you produce those 100,000 ballads in the Mail with no one noticing . it would take a lot of people--- I'm sure you've seen rooms full of people opening 2 envelopes unfolding the ballot and placing it in a pile .. well that had to be done in reverse .. somewhere there would have had to been a bunch of people with number 2 pencils to fold the ballot put it in envelope one feel it put it in the envelope too somehow figured to get a DATE stamp on it
and put it in a box with 999 999 other envelopes . .. I won't even get into getting these ballots printed but I do know then 100,000 ballots it's certainly going to be a bunch of boxes which is then going to involve many more boxes of 200,000 envelopes and probably one carton of #2 pencils .. you would then need 10 or 20 folding tables and a place to put them where it's warm and dry like a banquet Hall ------..
my question is ?? all those people with not one seeing the financial opportunity of disclosing it to the news people???
Things just do not happen in a vacuum.... Take the ups person delivering all those cartons of pencils.... I know the ups man who delivered the 59 boxes of bird cages a few years ago asked me “ what the hell is going on here? “ even without Sophisticated mathematical training most everyone can detect something outside the statistical norm .. which is what much of the news involves ...
“Yes johnny there is such a thing as a bell shaped curve” and in the complicated system of our voting, the stastical abnormality will be picked up by someone...
Furthermore having a news system which can freely discuss any statistical abnormalities is critical 2 our political system ... Current problem is that we no longer have active editors who insist on checking the news facts before it hits the Internet .. therefore it remains for us to be be educated or at least not forced to live at warp speed so we don't have time to think. we should be able to think about these things .
My classical historical Chestnut is “ the rate of increase in the number of jobs is down ? “ Someone out there in the advertising world realized that the only thing the radio listener was going to remember was ---- jobs is down - when in fact there were new JOBS, .... Just fewer new ones....
AS they saY WITH COMPUTER DATA.. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT..... IT IS ALSO TRUE WITH OUR HEADS.
SO I GET R EALLY WORRIED WHEN POLITITians start talking about educating our kids to think any certain WAY.;
