  1. Here's an example where analysts are just looking for something to analyze. It's like trying to determine if payday is on Friday, how many flapjacks does it take to cover a dog house. Why even bother to try to make sense of how people vote and how they drive. There are so many other variables.

    1. There has to be more to it than that, I hope. What if it is the Blue counties in the Red States?

  3. That's the oddest juxtaposition of data I've seen in a long time. But, as Mark Twain mentioned, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    1. True but again, Red vs Blue has higher teen pregnancy and higher divorce rates among other things. They also tend to get more free stuff from government

  4. Red as in Road Rage. Higher deaths. Seems logical.

    Bear has gone to hibernate. See you in the spring.

    Blessings and Bear hugs.

  5. But it's hard to hold a bottle of Jack Daniels in one hand, steer with the other and try and run over the opossum for dinner.
