- I was watching poltiifact during the debate and I gotta to say…
I know I fucked it up
Ok, I'm just zeroing in on the first one I see, because it's late and I'm going to bed soon, and because it seems to me like it's the most egregious example that you stated of PolitiFact supposedly labeling his statement categorically untrue yet admitting at the same time that he was right.
He was wrong. The only credible source for crime statistics are the Uniform Crime Reports made by the FBI each year, because they are the agency that each police department sends data to directly and which compiles said data and analyzes it. I am not aware of any other recipient of such a large body of data on homicides.
According to the Uniform Crime Reports for 2015, and this trend is true for at least the previous 4 years, the statement that 81% of white victims of homicide are killed by black people is absolutely untrue. White people kill white people by an enormous margin when compared to the races of other offenders.
This leads me to believe that someone edited in the explanation underneath the meter that PolitiFact made to make it seem like Trump's figure was accurate, yet PolitiFact was being petty and political and refusing to give him credit due to an inherent bias against him.
I don't think that is the case but I want to look into it more tomorrow.
YES, I know that I REALLY fucked it up.
Moral of the story, Politifact is not to be trusted. Ever. Especially in politics.
Which is ironic, given their name.
I have no comment about the accuracy of either statement, I just want to point out that it seems Sanders was talking about unemployment by race and age group, which can potentially have numbers that high. Trump was I believe referring to the national unemployment rate.
which is higher that 5.6 depending on how you count it
iirc the government doesn't count discouraged workers and a bunch of other stuff that would increase that number quite a bit
I was disappointed with Trumps performance last night, but politifact has been shown to have a clear bias and have been corrected several times..
Ehhhhh, Politifact has been pretty critical with their ratings toward conservative politicians compared to liberal ones. Nearly identical statements for one is pants on fire or mostly false, while the other side's answer that is a few percentage points different will be mostly true or true according to them.
Maybe that is because conservatives live in a fantasy world that distorts their view of reality?
Look at #139 #138 #141 and #143 and tell me which view is distorted.
Also, fucked up the little links to the other comments because I always forget how to do that, but look up.
She wasn't mostly truthful, she stood on stage telling people to go to her website for a fact checker while lying blatantly thirty seconds afterwards three times.
She made 4 "errors of fact" whereas he mad like 24 I think
Ah I see. That sucks. I was also pretty sad for lester about how much they stepped all over him with the interruptions or continuing past their given time. You could tell he got tired of their shit half way through and just kept talking even when they interrupted him.

The Millennial Working Paradox
You might be thinking about how Gen X (or Y can't remember) was the first generation to be smaller than the generation before it, population wise.
I dunno man, I'm already doing much better than my parents ever did for themselves.
They got pretty fucked over during the 2nd Bush presidency and have never recovered, they'll be working till the day they die. Meanwhile I moved out of the US and I'm doing fucking amazing. I even own a house.
Gen X and Gen Y were also considerably worse off than the Baby Boomers. Those fuckers ruined it for everybody
I thought Millenials are gen y?
Millenials are anyone that came into adulthood around the 2000's

>At least she isn't trump
I hate Hillary Clinton, I'd take her over trump an day though.
You'd take a criminal who got Americans killed over the man who is mean to illegal immigrants?
Id take a career politician ovrr a guy who doesn't know the impacts of his promises.
Cutting down trade with china will destroy morre american jobs than it creates.
Building a wall will cost roughly 15 times what trump initially proposed. Mexico has guaranteed they will not pay a cent.
Trump is a criminal himself. False declarations of bankrupcy etc etc.
Literally all he has going for him is he says snarky things about foreigners.
All you have to go by on the assumption that "a lot of people still hate Trump" is that the only friends you have that are remotely interested in polotics "hate" Trump because of the talking points. But I'm sure they can only answer the "why" with the talking points they've heard. I also suspect that your demographic wasn't even alive during the first part of the Clinton presidency or at least cogniscent during the Bush presidency, in which case it doesnt matter what you think because you just barely started paying taxes and are probably still on your parents health care. Trust no poll as they are all biased towards Clinton in their wording and a large percentage of people polled are really old and can be confused with the language used to answer questions. Either way, I own a business and have never been called for a questionnaire as I'm sure most people haven't whose vote actually weighs heavily. Ever compare the crowd of a Clinton rally to a Trump rally?
I remember when I had mostly liberal leanings. Then I had to pay all my own bills.
What has Hillary accomplished that makes such die hard idiot fans out if you people? At Least Trump has no intent to start a war with Russia. I'd put that in the plus category over Hillary.
Hillary wants to start a war with Russia? Explain.
