Voter preference for Trump linked to bullying in middle schools — ScienceDaily

 

The study — conducted by Francis Huang, an associate professor of statistics, measurement, and evaluation in education at the University of Missouri, and Dewey Cornell, a professor of education at the University of Virginia — used school climate survey data collected in 2013, 2015, and 2017. Researchers used a standard definition of bullying to ask students if they personally had been bullied at school, but also asked more general questions about bullying and teasing they had observed happening to others in their school.

Survey results were then mapped onto presidential election results for each school district’s locality. The study controlled for several locality-wide variables, including prior bullying and teasing rates, socioeconomic status, population density, and the percentage of white student enrollment.

Huang and Cornell found that a 10 percentage point increase in voters supporting the Republican candidate in 2016 was associated with a 5 percent jump in middle school teasing because of race or ethnicity and an 8-percent increase in middle school bullying.

Voter preference for Trump linked to bullying in middle schools — ScienceDaily

 

“Survey results were then mapped onto presidential election results for each school district’s locality.” –  BUT, you can’t make any kind of “presidential election results” comparisons because there was no survey in any prior presidential elections!  You have no idea how things played out after the 2012 or 2008 or 2004 elections, so you can’t say that it was the election of a Republican that had anything to do with the reports of bullying.  For all you know, there were higher incidents of bullying after other elections, also.  I cry foul.

You claim there’s a jump in bullying, BUT you don’t actually say who’s being bullied OR who’s doing the bullying.  (It could even be teachers.)  My guess, if social media is any indication, that it’s the children who are inclined to be more Republican-centered than Democrat-centered who are actually being bullied here.  I suspect it’s your “Voter preference for Trump” kids who are BEING bullied, not doing the bullying, as you imply.  Again, I cry foul on this “study.”  [Like this story, for example: Bullying Jerks Drive Kid To Breaking Point Because His Name is Trump]

Last but not least, middle school kids can’t vote!   So it’s really a stretch to try to link “voter preference” to middle-schoolers.

Socialism always ends in destruction:

Venezuela is only the latest country that has tried to implement a socialist paradise, only to inevitably crumble and crash before our eyes.

If you voted Democrat, here’s another example of the lunatic Left-wing violence you just supported:

become-ungovernable.jpg (Natural News) In the age of POTUS Donald Trump, the Democratic Party is fast becoming the American Communist Party as it is taken over by the extreme Left.

Suspiciously Hoaxy

When I was young, I remember hearing stories of how the pro-abortion people were blowing up their own clinics as a way to make pro-life people look bad.  The presumption was that surely they’d not blow up their own clinics, it must have been the pro-life people therefore pro-life people were bad.

We know now that many hoaxes have been perpetrated – people spray-painting hateful names on their own homes, carving rude names into their own flesh, hanging nooses around their own college – all as a means to “prove” how awful they believe conservatives to be.   Of course, they can’t find any real conservatives doing such things so they have to do it themselves. 

Clearly irony is lost on them.

I don’t really believe today’s spate of “suspicious devices” found at the homes of well-known liberals (Obama, Clinton, Soros, and possibly others) are any different than a hoax designed to make conservatives look bad, right before the midterm elections.  Yeah, suspicious. 

These people aren’t even home – they’re out on the liberal election tour so a bomb would not get the supposed intended target.  Plus, much too easily found and averted so again, would not get the supposed intended target. 

It simply doesn’t work.  If it were real, let’s say, and a bomb did go off and harm or kill someone, it would only bring sympathy to their cause and not our own.  And that’s not what we want, not to mention, we’re just not the law-breaking type.  We are the keepers of the rules, and more than anything, we’d much rather see these people in prison than dead. 

Frankly, I think Obama would look spectacular in orange.  Hillary, too!

Misrepresenting Statistics

This graphic popped up in my Twitter feed a while back.  The “shock and grab” headline really annoyed me.  It makes it sound like all these rapes are committed and nothing gets done about it because, I don’t know, reasons. 

I look at these numbers and what goes through my mind is that unless and until these rapes are convictions, they are alleged.  Period. 

Right out of the gate, 690 aren’t even reported, apparently, so obviously even the alleged victims didn’t make the effort to report the incidents so how can you even claim these rapes occurred?  Hearsay?  If that’s all it takes, then Jeff Bezos owes me about 50B.  Because I said so, that’s why.  What?  That’s all “survivors” need, right?  This whole “thousand” number looks made up.  No reports, no evidence, nothing. 

Of the 310 that are reported, 57 of those lead to arrest.  So, that means the cops have investigated, and found 253 lacking enough evidence to arrest.  There simply wasn’t enough there to facilitate an arrest, including identifying information about the alleged perpetrator.  Such a case occurred in my complex just last year.  But at least they were reported so if more evidence turns up in the future, there is a greater chance of a trial.

Of those 57, prosecutors decided not prosecute 46 of them.  This is generally because they, or a grand jury, didn’t feel there was enough evidence to convict. 

Of the 11 remaining that went to trial, 6 were convicted and incarcerated. 

Do you know what this means?  It means that over half of all rape trials lead to incarcerations.  MORE THAN HALF.  If your rape case goes to trial, you have better than a 50/50 chance of winning! 

Do unreported rapes happen?  Of course they do.  But you can’t just go in and destroy someone’s life without evidence.  That makes you no better than the alleged rapist you claim to be against.  Better a guilty man go free than an innocent man get convicted, is how our justice system was supposed to work. 

It’s also true that people lie.  Many even lie about being raped.

If you’ve been raped, you need to report it.  It is absolutely true there will be no future conviction of your perpetrator at all if you don’t.
