Depending on the damage done by the Bevin budget here, I just might be.

Not a big Matt Bevin fan lol.

Since I don't live in KY I don't follow the political scene there as much. I know he has pissed off a lot of people, especially the horse community

Well, the budget is a mess. KY has no money and a very bad-off pension system with a governor with a hardon for higher ed. The issue NKU has is an out of proportion pension system payment. With our pension payments, our cut will be about 30 percent if the current plan is adopted.

The state really needs new revenue streams as much if not more than it needs spending cuts. Casino gambling would make a lot of difference, but we have some heavy duty moral objections in the rural areas. So, you know, cut education.

The slots has everything to do with lobbyists from other states, religious people (horse gambling is ok though for some reason) and the horse community.

However they are moving towards more gambling with the instant racing machines. I think it stops there though, the horse people in power don't want full on casino gambling. The majority of horseman probably do but they arent the ones with big time money.

National polls are irrelevant.

It is hilarious to me you've got an "analytics guy" like Nate Silver getting completely embarrassed with forecasts of a Hillary win. Silver was playing stats but he wasn't playing moneyball.

The popular vote doesn't matter. All that matters is electoral votes. Don't think in terms of buying voters, think in terms of buying electoral votes.

Honestly they just need to scrap Turfway and turn that into instant slot machines. Would completely change the place like the Red Mile in Lexington

Thanks for the long-winded version of what I said.

I believe Silver gave Trump a 1/4 or maybe 1/3 chance of winning. That's basically like the Eagles beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Sure the Patriots are the favorites, but it's well within the realm of possibility that Phily wins.

People just have a very difficult time thinking probabilistically and see any prediction as having to be 100% certain in one direction or the other.

Problem is you're leaving out that the Trump campaign did realize that in 2016.

They've got a good front going about being completely inept, but there was a solid Forbes piece following the election that shed some light on the analytics operation Ivanka's dude setup. They aren't going to scrap that in 2020.

Focusing on the economy wins electoral votes.

I have heard they banned people over there for negative comments on the GB and HS FB board. They run a high ship except for pboy. I think they have given up trying to block his usernames

I responded to PBoy calling LS's hoops coach a munchkin with a big head or something like that and told him he had a bad life. Haven't been allowed back since. I've never said anything bad about EHS other than to critique a subpar marketing campaign this year.

It's strange because EHS 2001 and Don Flamenco are both pretty reasonable. Yappi is pretty thin skinned at times so maybe he's the one doing it

Wonder if Yappi would sell his site for fair market value? Anyone want to go in on this?

$500 here, with the only stipulation that I get to perma-ban Yappi myself. And I'd immediately un-ban every clone handle.
