Bradley Polling Effect for Dummies


The Bradley effect (less commonly the Wilder effect) is a theory concerning observed discrepancies between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in some United States government elections where one candidate and another candidate run against each other.

The theory proposes that some voters who intend to vote for one candidate would nonetheless tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for the other candidate.

It was named after Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, who lost the 1982 California governor’s race despite being ahead in voter polls going into the elections.

Leftist Anger For Dummies


To make this simple we’ll compare just two types of thought process. Left thinking people and Right thinking people. There are other types of thinking, but let’s keep this simple.

So where does Leftist anger come from?

It comes from the belief in protecting a just cause that has no factual base or near sightedness to their reasoning.

Meaning: That people as a whole have to be told by the government how to act and live their lives. When to go to bed, when they should get up in the morning. How to control their pets, how to treat their neighbors and strangers.

They believe in majority rule. Meaning that the majority of a given area have the right to pass laws that everybody must comply with and the losing group have no rights to protect their beliefs. (a business can’t refuse service to anybody)

Their major downfall is: believing that everybody agrees with their belief on issues.

Their anger comes from: the shock and disbelief of others that disagree with their reasoning.

When a leftist becomes angered by shock and disbelief of others that disagree with their thinking, they usually (but not always) will attack the objectors with insults, belittlement or actions to punish those who disagree with their thinking.

A leftist or socialist will become physically violent when they can justify their actions to themselves of the necessity of physical violence. Regardless of what the law in a given area says towards physical violence.

Here’s the basics:

Leftist or left leaning person: Is basically a person that believes in social government. Meaning, You give the government the right to control a majority of your everyday activity.

Rightist or right leaning person: Is basically a person that believes in limited government actions and laws.

Meaning, you support the need of a governing body but the governing body is limited in their actions and laws concerning the population they govern.

Leftist or left leaning person: Mainly lives in large cities. Where government controlled service are easier to obtain (city buses, public medical service, homeless centers, etc.) They will live in the rural areas but prefer areas that have additional governing bodies that regulate life style. (home owners association)

Rightist or right leaning person: Majority lives in rural areas with limited or small governing bodies. They support the basic needs such as electrical power, emergency medical. But also believe in self reliance. They will live in large cities, but seem to gravitate to areas in a large city that has limited government actions. (work in the city but live in the county)

Leftist or left leaning person: Believes in “Human Rights.” Which basically means a right given to a person based on the popular belief at a given time. “Human Rights” are not known to have a base to its formula.

Rightist or right leaning person: Believe in “Unalienable Rights.” Which basically means rights for a human based on “Natural Laws.” “Natural Laws” are believe to have started at the time of creation of the known universe. “Natural Laws” cover a wide range of rules such as the laws of math, laws of science, law of planetary motion, etc.

Job Hiring Tips That Work

We created a simple list of “job hiring tips” to help you get a good paying job. We also added ways for you to get free training in a work field you want to go into.

 

Make a resume of your job history NOW and keep it in a safe place in your house to help your memory out. Make sure date hired, date left, job duties are on it. Go back in your history for 10 to 20 years or when you left school. (Included un-employed dates in this resume)

There are 29 different public sources where a company can check your history out. Don’t lie on your application. Mis-information may be construed as a lie. All of your answers can/will be verified.

Answer every question on an application: If the question doesn’t apply to you, then you put a “N/A” other than that answer all questions.

Pass job history: if you list a company that is closed or they cannot verified that you work there, it is smarter for you to say that you were “unemployed” during that time frame.
Remember, employers want to know your work history, if they can’t verify it, that will pass you over to the next person that they can verify. Placing “unemployed” on a application is not a bad thing. You can always explain the “unemployed statement” later.

Longevity at jobs is a good thing: Employers are looking for employees they can count on. If your work history has too many jobs in it in one year, employers many pass you over because it shows you most likely won’t stay.
This is where putting “un-employed” may be a good thing. It’s easier to say “it was a bad year for me” then to have 10 different jobs listed.  (more…)

Nicole Back is a friend who is the one interview I wish I could obtain. She introduced me to the media world and was yin to my yang on issues of the day. We lost touch of each other after all of these years but my hope are that one day we can have a beer and enjoy laughing at each other lives.

To my dear friend, you will always have a spot on the show and my heart.

So You Want to Host a Radio Show


Recently a man questioned me about doing a radio show on the station and was asking what was involved in it. He was curious about the cost and how a person puts on a show.

I explained to the gentleman that if you can give a lecture with nobody in the room, you can do a radio show. If you think about it, that’s what happens. You talk on the mic for 30 to 60 minutes about a subject or series of subjects with nobody in the room that you can look at.
(This is why radio host often get asked to do lectures or speaking engagements)

Which got me thinking there are a lot of people out there with great idea’s but don’t know how to make an idea materialize. So here is a look at what it takes to make a radio show happen.

Get over your fear of a microphone.

As silly as this sounds a lot of people have a fear of talking on a mic. I tell people who have never done this to simply set your computer up to record your voice and practice talking on it. Talk about a subject you know and can push your point. Play the recording back to yourself and listen to it.
People think their voice may sounds bad but a bad sounding voice is often a hit with the public and on radio. I can list a number of people who have horrible sounding voices, but they are so unique that the public recognizes them when they hear the voice.

Nothing is FREE

There are cost factors in airing a show. To the shock of most people, the cost can be cheap. Request a meeting with a station manager about doing the show, let them know what type of show you want to do, how long you want the show to air and if you will need help producing your show. Ask if the station will help promote your show. Stations will cut commercials telling people about your show and when they can hear it.

Shop around with different stations. Some stations cost is very high in price, but some stations are very cheap and love the idea of a locally made/produce show.
Make sure your show works with the station format. Many stations don’t do local shows because the show doesn’t work with it’s format.

Paying for the show

This is where you find show sponsors and there is a good chance you’ll pay for it at first out of your own pocket. You can ask around and see if you can find somebody who would buy advertising but often if your show in on a subject that works with a business, they will pay the show cost for the right to be the only advertisement for your show. Businesses often do shows using their sales staff as host of the show and will push the business as a good place to buy the items talked about on the show.

Show idea’s that are a HIT!

Horticulture – people love to hear about plants and how to grow them.
Anything about house repairs – People want to know about how to fix things in their homes.
Car repair – always a big hit
Law – Why there are not more law shows I’ll never know.
Religious – It’s not just for Sunday’s anymore.
Cooking – a dying art. Be a chef because you will get a lot of questions.
Live Stock – in the rural area’s stations need to have this type of show. Great idea if your a Veterinarian or pet supplies store.
Local Historian – Everybody loves to talk about the history of a given area.

These idea’s are just a scratch of what will work on radio and I hope I spark an idea for you. There are many other things you need to do to make a show a success but a station manager will help you on that part.

Impeach Trump, Not Likely – Here’s Why


Lately there has been people who want Trump impeached. The flaw in their thinking is, he done nothing that is impeachable since taking office.

Notice I said “since taking office.” To impeach a government official they have to be in office when the offense was committed. Trump took office Jan. 20th, 2017. Anything he did (legal or not) before that date is not impeachable because he was a civilian. Which means it can’t be used against him in a impeachment hearing.

Below we list a short definition of high crimes and misdemeanors with what an impeachment processes. Now you know why the media doesn’t talk about impeachment of President Trump.

——————————————————-

The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps:

The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official.

  1.  If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them.
  2. If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate.
  3. For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.
  4. The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.

The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

Will this article quite the impeach Trump crowed? Most likely not, but now you know why the media and politicians are not talking about it. If you hear a politician screaming this, all they are doing is grandstanding and nothing more.
