A Rifleman knows that reconnaissance is 99 parts observation and 1 part shooting. Now, that 1 part shooting had better be honed to a fine edge. But the Rifleman is confident in the shooting part and hopes and prays not to have to use it.
The Rifleman is teaching others to be Riflemen. The discussion and training is geared toward intermediate ranges: 100 - 500 yards, give or take. A student raises the question of .308 vs. .223.
Student: "Wouldn't a .308 have more knock-down power?"
Rifleman: "What exactly is knock-down power? How do you define it?"
Student: "Energy of the round."
Rifleman: "Kinetic energy is one half of mass times velocity squared. Is this what you mean?"
Student: nods to the affirmative.
Rifleman: "Well then, if a round impacted a target and stopped dead in the target, then a point could be made. But bullets rarely stop cold in a target - they often pass through. That means the puncturing action is actually more important. People don't die from Kinetic Energy... they die from blood loss or destruction of the Central Nervous System."
Medic: nods to the affirmative.
There is a difference between what is overheard at a gun range and what happens in reality. The good news is we live in the information age. The material can be found if you look.

Living at home through college can be trying enough. Throw in a mother with severe psychological and emotional problems, and it can be harrowing. Be red pill in responses, and the results can be hilarious.
Mom: "Would you hook up my new TV to the cable?"
Son: "Sure. Want me to do it now?"
Mom: "No, not now. The TV is still in my car and I need to go."
Son: "Are you sure? It will only take me a minute. Plus, I leave in an hour to go camping with some buddies. I won't be back until tomorrow afternoon."
Mom: "Can't you do it this evening when I get back?"
At this point, he could have already taken the TV out of her car and been hooking it up, but that's what she was saying "no" to.
Son: "Like I said, I'll be camping. The campsite is over an hour away."
Mom: "When do you leave?"
Son: "In about an hour."
Mom: "If I get it back to you before you go, will you hook it up?"
The mom leaves. An hour comes and goes. No sign of the mom coming back. Son leaves for his camping trip.
When he gets back the next day, his TV is gone from his room. He scans the house, but it's not there. What is there is a note from his mom:
"Since you went back on your word, I'll go back on mine. I'm taking back the TV that MY Momma got for you."
Mom is not home, she is at work. Son thinks for a moment, and then hatches a plan!
When Son arrives home from college the next day, Mom is sitting on the chair in his room, brow furrowed. The look on her face is anger. The look on Son's face is shit-eating grin. She goes into a fit of rage.
Mom: "You went back on YOUR word, and then steal my computer when I punish you?!"
Son: "And more stuff comes up missing until I get my TV back... or until I have enough stuff to sell for money for a new TV."
agree & amplify
Mom: "That's not right!!! You bring my computer back this minute!"
Son: Looks at space where the TV had been. Passes his hand through that space, then nods "no." The shit-eating grin remains... as does his calm demeanor.
Mom: [Fit of expletives, demanding her laptop computer back. Right now!]
Son: "There's the problem, you won't take your meds. Had you been taking them like the doctor said, you'd have realized it would have taken only a minute for me to get the TV out of your car. But no. You'd rather manufacture a problem where none existed just because you wanted everything done your way, the hell with anyone else. That's why you have no friends... well, keep it up and you won't have any belongings, either. I'll sell them all to fund my TV." Son delivers this message calmly - just barely above a whisper. And he then leaves the room in a completely nonchalant manner.
Ridicule and reframe
15 minutes later, the mom tells where the missing TV is.
The son reveals the location of the missing laptop - in the unfolded clean linens: "the last place you'd ever look," he tells her (neg).
Later that evening he sets her new TV up.
Taped to the remote is her bottle of meds.

This gem was posted by a liberal acquaintance from high school. Of course, the liberal thought it was showing up the climate change denier. And while it is true that astrophysics is a science, it is also a completely unrelated science to that of climate change.
From Merriam-Webster -
a branch of astronomy dealing especially with the behavior, physical properties, and dynamic processes of celestial objects and phenomena.
Completely unrelated to Earth's climate. So while the climate change advocate here has a scientific degree, it is irrelevant to the subject at hand. Liberals know it. Or, maybe some really are too dimwitted to realize it.
So, if you want a good scientific opinion on climate change, one might look to a meteorologist. After all, here's the definition of meteorology -
a science that deals with the atmosphere and with weather.
Or, maybe even the opinion of a climatologist would work. But an astrophysicist' opinion on the topic would be just as irrelevant as a chemist's, or a lawyer's, or a teacher's. On the other hand, one might consult an expert in the field for a valid opinion.

80 total Patriots trained.
36 qualified as Expert Riflemen (90%+ score).
30 qualified as Sharpshooter or Marksman.
4 out of 5 who did not qualify had serious malfunctions.
5 women who did not even get their shots on paper at the beginning of class wound up scoring Expert Rifleman.
5 women who did not get their shots on paper at the beginning wound up scoring Sharpshooter or Marksman.
1 man who did not get his shots on paper at the beginning wound up scoring Sharpshooter.
18 total ladies trained.
9 scored Expert Rifleman. (2 with perfect scores)
7 scored Sharpshooter or Marksman.
2 did not qualify, but both showed tremendous improvement.
2 young Patriots trained.
1 scored Sharpshooter and one did not qualify, but showed tremendous improvement.
* As a technicality, 2 Patriots were young men, age 17. They have been lumped in with the men for these statistics. Both did quite well - one scored Sharpshooter and the other scored Expert Rifleman.
At least one Patriot representing each of the four major branches - Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines - scored Expert Rifleman.
Budget rifles often led to malfunctions.
Budget optics (retail price under $100) always led to malfunction.
Wolf ammo did not ever participate in a qualifying score of any level.
Wolf ammo becomes unstable and tumbles in air about half the time - striking the target sideways.
M193 earned more qualifications than any, including several perfect scores.
Low powered optics - 3x and 4x - earned more scores than any others.
If you came to class with a rifle that was not zeroed, you did not earn Expert Rifleman.
If you used one of my loaners, you did very well. My Recce rifle minted 3 Expert Riflemen in 3 events.

If you are one of the few who say - "Trump just needs to settle down and control what he says."
Then you clearly do not understand what is going on in politics.
Let me explain it for you: Trump got to where he is by opening his mouth. That's what gets him ahead. That's what will bury Hillary in this election. Trump says what the people feel.

It's not you. It's not me.
Recently, I cancelled my DVD / Blu-ray delivery service with Netflix. I still purchase their streaming content. And for the time, I'll be content with that, as will my family. The reason was not cost cutting, although saving $10 a month will be nice (ish). The real reason behind the move is much more practical.
I just don't like most of what Hollywood is putting out these days.
The few-and-far-between entertaining movies wind up being purchased. Failing that, I can rent them from Red Box. 95% of the new releases I have little more than casual interest in. So I can either wait to see them when they make it to streaming, or just do without.
In this instance, Netflix has been done in by its own industry.
Not ironically, the majority of the things that we stream are older shows and movies. Back when it was quality entertainment.

Definitions are important. Based on a recent conversation, it is prudent to review these definitions.
In a situation of armed conflict between opposing factions, the following distinctions can be made:
the armed forces of a country
a professional soldier hired to serve in a foreign army
a military force that is raised from the civil population
Just about any group of armed combatants could be classified as one of these three. Do any of these definitions differ from what you thought they were?

This Olympics, I have been watching several of the Judo matches. There has been some good Judo without a doubt. One observation is on groundwork - newaza.
Not every Judo match in the Olympics has featured groundwork. Most Judo players do not opt for groundwork, as the vast majority of scores in Judo are earned via throws. This is because the current rules of Judo favor the throwing game.
However, in every instance that I saw groundwork used, a score resulted. Many times, it was a deciding score or an outright winning score.
On several occasions, a lower ranked player used groundwork to unseat a higher ranked player. In one instance, a reigning Olympic gold medal winner was defeated via arm lock - juji gatame. In another case, the 6th ranked player was defeated via pinfall - yokoshiho gatame.
3 time Olympian Travis Stevens used a groundwork combo to reach the gold medal round for the first time in his career. He used a juji gatame to okurieri jime finish. BJJ stylists call that particular one "bow and arrow choke." Stevens had participated in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, but had not medaled. In 2012, he started training in BJJ to improve his ground game. He earned a black belt in 18 months - most say the fastest ever. The improvement showed in this Olympic Games.
Reigning gold medalist Kayla Harrison won a second straight gold medal. In the gold medal match, she won via juji gatame arm lock.
I predict an influx of Judoka wanting to tighten up their ground games after this Olympics is over.

Whether it's fair or not, women in the west are judged largely based on their looks. A woman cannot add to her looks with a charming personality. A woman can take away from her looks with a negative personality.
A woman who wishes to win the marriage game would be well advised to follow these principles:
1. Stay slim & fit.
Don't be fat.
This is the primary principle. Fat is not fit. No amount of personality will make up for the fact that your weight begins with a "2" (or 3!). Eat less. Eat good, real food (not processed or starchy). Work out a couple of times a week. Move around a lot daily.
Avoid: drugs, alcohol, veganism, vegetarianism.
2. Be pleasant to be around.
Don't be bitchy or crazy.
Feminine is good, bossy is not.
Polite is good, sass is not.
Manners are good, bitchy is not.
Quietly confident is good, brash cockiness is not.
Compliments are good, complaining is not.
Smile is good, scowl is not.
Chaste is good, slutty is not.
Conservative is good, liberalism is not.
Avoid: liberalism, social justice causes, attention-whoring, promiscuity, snobbery, and the like.
3. Be feminine.
Don't be masculine.
Do not constantly shit-test him.
Do not challenge him for control.
Follow his lead.
Take his side.
Avoid: feminism, atheism.
Do or do not; there is no "try."
Save yourself for marriage. If you do the rest of these things, you will be worth it. If you fail in any one category, you will eventually fail them all. Then you will be damaged goods. No man of quality needs to marry damaged goods - he is in demand and can take his pick of girls who took themselves seriously.
Marry early (before 25) - preferably to an older man (over 30). He should be somewhat established by this point.
Do not divorce, unless it is genuinely a life-threatening environment. It won't be if you follow the above advice. The grass will never be greener on the other side. Women who divorce are subscribing to a life of poverty. Never does a woman find a better man later. The better man chose a better woman to start with than you will ever be if you do not heed this advice.
A woman who does these things would make a good wife and mother. And that is the highest calling a woman can have in this life. Such a woman will be desired by the highest ranking men.
Note: this coincides perfectly with the famous "Hot-Crazy Matrix." The hottest and least crazy women get to date the highest standing men.

Going to make this official here. During a routine mammogram this year, my wife was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ. DCIS. Breast cancer.
The cancer was caught early. Stage 0 - precancerous growth. We have been to second opinions and consultations and plastic surgeons at this point.
The current plan is lumpectomy with a lift for cosmetic purposes. Her prognosis is very good as the DCIS was caught early.

Evolution designed you to carry on the species. Your entire body is built around reproduction and rearing of young. It is the greatest single accomplishment of which you are capable.
Yet, you revel in the destruction of your own spawn.
Your ilk not only try to make the destruction of your offspring "acceptable," they actually take to the idea of making such behavior worthy of their praise.
You only had one job...

Humor abounds. Conservative friends who haven't solidified themselves are the butt of today's jokes. Unfortunately, the joke is on them.
I'm talking about the people who post memes on social media about how the media lies and cannot be trusted. Then, the turn around and share a story about the media bashing Trump. One of the recent ones is "Trump puts his foot in his mouth..."
Listen - if you say or post anything about Trump "putting his foot in his mouth" and also post things about the media being untruthful, you're just plain dumb. You deceive yourself.
Here's a hint - the media lies. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, FOX. All of them.
EVERYTHING THEY PUBLISH IS A LIE!
And you either believe that, or you must believe everything they publish is true. Can't have this one both ways.
Here's another hint - Trump doesn't put his foot in his mouth. Trump isn't racist. Trump hasn't declared bankruptcy on every business he's ever had. These are all the things the media lies about. Liberals and weak little cuckservatives buy these lies, and therefore, do not like Trump. They are the problem here in America. Don't be like them. Be part of the solution.

"I'm going to whip his ass."
Crowd follows Alpha.
Alpha approaches subject and confronts him loudly.
A scuffle ensues and the Alpha quickly overwhelms his opponent.
Just as the Alpha prepares to deliver the coup de grace, the Betas and Deltas step in and break things up.
"I'm going to go show him a thing or two about hitting women. Who's with me?!?"
Beta rounds up a few friends - Betas and Deltas - and things generally play out the same as they did with the Alpha above.
Delta rounds up some friends, and confronts the offender.
Delta demands an apology and it is begrudgingly given.
Offender is more afraid of the Betas and the Alpha (if he came) than the Delta.
The fear of the group who supports one of its own is also on display.
Sometimes, the offender may offend again, just to see if the group hangs together with this person.
The Gamma hollers and wails about striking a woman.
He pleads with the offender for an apology and a promise never to do this again.
When this fails, he appeals to school authorities... often without success.
The offender doubles his attempts at offenses.
Things boil over and offenser winds up bullying the Gamma.
Later, the Gamma bullies others as he lashes out in emotion over the angst of being bullied.
Learns of the offense online.
Plots and bombs the school, killing his sister along with the offended.
He rationalizes that his sister was a slot and deserved death anyhow.
Upon hearing of the offense, the Sigma quietly and promptly rises and goes directly to the offender.
Followers follow the Sigma, knowing the bomb shall go off... but not knowing exactly what that might mean.
The Sigma spots the offender, angles directly toward him from an unseen side, and confronts him directly.
The offender is lifted off his feet by a firm hand around the throat and held there, pinned against a wall.
A cold warning is issued in guttural tones, indicating a complete lack of emotion in cold resolve.
The squeeze of the hand tightens, and a punch takes the offender to the ground.
The Sigma raises a hand for a coup de grace, and pulls it just short.
A final warning is uttered.
Offender urinates in his pants.
Sigma walks away, observers in complete shock over the coldness of the display.
Lambda flies at offender in a fit of rage, beating him to a pulp.
Later, Lambda comes to hospital and apologizes for overreacting.
Lambda asks the offender out.

Last week, the August primaries in Tennessee were held. Among the results locally, Susan Lynn won the Republican nomination for reelection to her State Representative seat. Trisha Farmer won the Democrat nomination for same. Both women ran unopposed.
Nearly 80% of the primary votes were in the Republican primary. This is in line with past County and District 57 results - usually well over 70% of votes cast in the area go to the Republican candidate. It is anticipated to be no different this fall.
However, a little commentary on this. Susan Lynn has generally distanced herself from the Haslam gang of late. This is a good thing.
Farmer, on the other hand, is a Bernie Sanders type socialist. She supports outright gun bans (though her website touts the liberal lie of "common sense gun control"). In short, Farmer simply does not represent the wishes of the majority of this district.
Now, I could go into much greater detail about Farmer, as I've unfortunately had to deal directly with her on more than one occasion, but I shall refrain at this point. Suffice it to say that character assassination would be easy - she provides much ammo. And her political views make matters even worse.
District 57, do yourself a solid favor, make sure to reelect Susan Lynn this November.

"Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don't know."
Dan Rather (or should it be Dan Blather?) had a response:
No trying-to-be objective and fair journalist, no citizen who cares about the country and its future can ignore what Donald Trump said today. When he suggested that "The Second Amendment People" can stop Hillary Clinton he crossed a line with dangerous potential. By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics. This is no longer about policy, civility, decency or even temperament. This is a direct threat of violence against a political rival. It is not just against the norms of American politics, it raises a serious question of whether it is against the law. If any other citizen had said this about a Presidential candidate, would the Secret Service be investigating?
Candidate Trump will undoubtably issue an explanation; some of his surrogates are already engaged in trying to gloss it over, but once the words are out there they cannot be taken back. That is what inciting violence means.
To anyone who still pretends this is a normal election of Republican against Democrat, history is watching. And I suspect its verdict will be harsh. Many have tried to do a side-shuffle and issue statements saying they strongly disagree with his rhetoric but still support the candidate. That is becoming woefully insufficient. The rhetoric is the candidate.
This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign. We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrow's newspapers do it justice. We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.
We are a democratic republic governed by the rule of law. We are an honest, fair and decent people. In trying to come to terms with today's discouraging development the best I can do is to summon our greatest political poet Abraham Lincoln for perspective:
"We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
Lincoln used these stirring words to end his First Inaugural Address. It was the eve of the Civil War and sadly his call for sanity, cohesion and peace was met with horrific violence that almost left our precious Union asunder. We cannot let that happen again.
Dan Blather illustrates quite well Law 1, Law 2, and Law 3 ... in order!
Trump's statement was clearly not a direct threat to Hillary (Lie - Law 1). The threat to Hillary, should she win in November, is if she tries gun bans. Then the 2nd Amendment might well be protected by force - and that is exactly why it was written to begin with.
Blather quotes Lincoln about how we as Americans are friends. This is doubling down (Law 2) on the lie. The Left hates those who are not the Left. Hell, they can barely tolerate their own... they hate everything!
Blather goes on to state that we cannot let the civil war happen again. This is projection (Law 3). Many on the Left are so adamantly against Trump that they are almost ready to go to war. They are the ones saying they will go to war if Trump is elected. Blather knows this... and he fuels it.

Saw this on Facebook the other day. It's a good reference guide. That said, let's analyze these categories and see who the real Libertarian is in this presidential race. For the sake of simplicity and to avoid repetitiveness, Hillary Clinton is not included in the results discussions below - as she is the furthest thing from Libertarian that a person can be.
On the surface, it would seem Johnson is more (L) than Trump, but you must take into account one key detail. Johnson says to legalize and tax marijuana. Since a tax is the ultimate form of governmental regulation, this is not a (L) stance.
2. Gay marriage
Since marriage is not addressed in the Constitution, it is within the power of the individual states to decide. I, personally, think there should be no regulation at any level of government - but modern marriage is a financial contract. States have the authority to decide rules for financial contracts.
Irrelevant since abortion is currently allowed. Irrelevant what their personal stance is, since the federal government does have the ability under the Constitution to define what is and what is not murder.
4. Increase gun control.
5. Increase border.
On the surface, it would seem that Johnson has the more (L) answer. However, open borders with neighbors who do not value freedom will result in more migrants coming into the country and then taking the freedoms away like they did to their own country before. Ideally, the whole world would be Libertarian, but it's not. And the wise Libertarian knows the threats of giving up his liberty. Open borders leads to giving up liberty.
6. Accept Syrian refugee
Given the known correlation worldwide with the Syrian "refugees" and terrorist invasion, and given the statements on 5 above, this one is easy. For the purpose of maintaining a sovereign Libertarian society, a wise Libertarian would agree that immigration must not come at the expense of liberty.
7. Common Core
8. Require Vaccinations
9. Support Obamacare
10. Drug test welfare.
This one is interesting. A truly (L) response is that the state ought not provide welfare at all. Both Trump and Johnson fail here.
11. Require welfare-to-work.
See #10. Both fail.
12. Felon right to vote.
Johnson has the more purely (L) answer here. My personal opinion is that someone convicted of a high crime by a jury of his peers with evidence beyond a shadow of a doubt ought not be a member of the electorate. My opinion is conservative on this, though (as is my opinion of abortion).
13. Global warming regulation
14. Require GMO label.
Though Trump did not have an answer on this, Johnsons answer was not (L) at all. Requiring things of people like this is government over reach. Government over reach is supposed to be the bane of Libertarianism. (Note: how in the hell did Hillary have a more Libertarian answer than Johnson???)
Result: -1 for Johnson
15. Space travel budget
This one is tricky. A true Libertarian wants government to be as small as possible. Yet, the space travel budget is not what has our country in debt. Entitlement spending is our biggest problem. Still, in the vein of smaller government, Johnson technically does have the more (L) answer.
16. Military budget
17. Congress term limits.
No answer from Trump hurts him here. Johnson nails it.
Tie / irrelevant - 9
Trump - 3
Johnson - 3
Hillary - 1
Trump is as much for liberty as any candidate in the running. Plus, he vows for tighter border security... which only enhances our liberty. Johnson is certainly for liberty most of the time, but he made a real bone-head pick for VP. Hillary cannot be trusted at all to preserve liberty. In fact, the only thing Hillary can be trusted to do is erode liberty.
What say you?

From social media -
When you're trying to create wedding invitations but you're keeping your last name and the world is still dominated by patriarchy so none of the pre-made options allow you to put the bride's last name... #DownWithThePatriarchy
It would seem this young, ignorant lass is causing all her own problems by trying to go so hard against the grain. If she were able to stop and think for a moment, she might realize the grain exists for a reason: like her protection and the betterment of society, not to mention the ease of doing it that way.
I would ask her - why get married at all if you really want to be free of the patriarchy? Marriage came about due to the patriarchy and is one of the last remaining institutions of the patriarchy.
I would ask you, my readers, what sort of man is she marrying? There's more than enough hint here in this post.

Do your liberal friends troll your conservative posts on social media? Seems to be what they do. Liberals know they are in the wrong. They read the truth, they know it's the truth, they just then lash out with rebellion and use false statements to try to troll you so that you feel as bad as they do when they read your posts.
This political season, I've decided on a course of action. I shall not intentionally seek out liberal lie posts. But, as such posts come across my feeds, I shall troll them in an epic, yet simplistic way.
Using the concept of the Three Laws of SJW, I shall give simple responses of one of the following:
No other explanation shall be provided. No other argument. No other statements at all. Since liberals often fancy themselves as Social Justice Warriors, it is easy to presume everything they say falls under one of the three laws. And in practice, you do not have to dig deep to figure out which law is on display.
Recall the three laws:
1. SJWs always lie.
2. SJWs always double down.
3. SJWs always project.
Given that, and given that liberal talking points are almost always one of only three types:
- Outright lie (Law1)
- Response to a conservative point (Law 2)
- Accusation against a conservative (Law 3)
It is pretty easy to figure out which one they are using. So the responses shall be easy.
Who's with me on this?

In last week's DNC, the theme song was Fight Song. Interesting choice. Here are the key lyrics of the chorus:
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
Given the fact that the Democrat party is the home of the majority of full-fledged Social Justice Warriors (SJWs), let's examine if these lyrics apply. Specifically, do these lyrics, when applied to Democrats, follow the Three Laws of SJW?
Reminder: the Three Laws of SJWs -
1. SJWs always lie.
2. SJWs always double down.
3. SJWs always project.
When subjected to evaluation, these lyrics do demonstrate the Democrats' attempt to lie, double down, and project. And, interestingly enough, the three lyric lines are the three laws in reverse order.
Prove I'm alright song - Law 1 (lie)
Dems know they aren't alright. That's why they have to tell you they are alright. It's a lie. Sleaze-Marketing 101 - take your biggest weakness, lie about it, and tout it as a strength.
Take back my life song - Law 2 (double down)
Dems don't want you to judge them for not being alright, so they then want to "take their life back." As if anyone had taken it from them to begin with.
This is my fight song - Law 3 (project)
They know they are in for a fight they cannot win against Trump. So they must signal they are ready for the fight. In reality, it is Trump and the Alt-Right who is ready for this fight. Projection. That's how it works.

Enough said, right? Well, I'm a compassionate guy, and I also understand making mistakes in life. We've all made mistakes. So I came up with a little chart to tell you what I think of you when I find out you are liberal.
If you are under 21 and liberal, I understand. I did stupid stuff, too, when I was a kid. Yes, I'm being patronizing to you. Adults were patronizing to me, too, when I was young and inexperienced. I'm just sitting here, hoping and praying you grow out of it. There's hope, to be sure... you don't still piss in your pants, so I know you are capable of growing more.
21 - 29
If you are in your 20's and liberal, I'm going to look at you cockeyed. You should be starting to figure this life thing out by now. Even if you haven't got it all together (I didn't), you should be headed in the right direction, at least. You know better than to travel East from New York to get to Los Angeles, so you need to know better than to be liberal to make this world a better place.
If you are 30+ and liberal, I automatically assume you are either a complete idiot, or have an agenda. I don't particularly care for either outcome, so you will be kept at arm's length. I'm not falling for your agenda, and I don't want to catch the backdraft of your stupidity, either.

The RNC and DNC are wrapped up. Now comes the campaigning and debates. And the prognostication. That's what this is. A way-too-early prediction of how things will pan out, in my opinion, of course. The way I see it, there are three main factors that will determine this election: community organization, voter passion, and the ever-important scandals and missteps.
Obama was a community organizer by trade. It's no surprise that his campaign was masterful in getting key voters to the polls in key precincts. Hillary has no such ability, and the Obama campaign is not likely to lend much help. This is not good for Hillary. It would not be a surprise to me if most (or even all) of the "swing states" wind up going to Trump: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida, etc.
Liberals are not passionate about Hillary. They were passionate about Bernie. They were passionate about Obama. But this is their Romney. Nobody likes her. The solid blue base will vote for her, a few low-information voters will, too. That's about it. Hillary doesn't inspire voters - blue or independent.
Trump inspires voters. A lot of the voters who "stayed home" for Romney show up for Trump. He speaks to the people who have wished to have a politician in their corner. He inspires people who haven't been inspired in a long time... not too dissimilar to what Obama did for the left eight years ago.
Scandals and Missteps
Though this is the most difficult to predict, we have something here to go on. The liberal media has tried every way to make something - anything - stick to Donald Trump. Teflon Don has alpha responsed his way past them all... with ease!
Meanwhile, Hillary has baggage. More baggage than any candidate in known history. Because of her, people have died, secrets have become compromised, and she is seen as the establishment of the left in a year where establishment candidates are eschewed. What's more, Bernie wins if the selection process had been truly democratic. This is not to be taken lightly.
