I'm concerned about this country becoming a giant banana republic.
"Today, Time Magazine, once the pride of its parent company Time-Warner, is being spun off on its own with a load of debt. It’s been a drag on its parent’s profits, so it now begins trading as an independent company that’s no longer part of the Time-Warner conglomerate. If it goes bankrupt, the parent won’t be touched. Thus can corporations (and their major owners) rid themselves of their problematic parts. But owners of small businesses and people whose money-making assets are mainly themselves (that is, most of us) cannot. If we get into deep financial trouble, our only option is bankruptcy. People laden with student debt can’t even declare bankruptcy. The rules of capitalism are designed for and by the owners of large amounts of capital, who also pay less taxes on their capital-gains income than the rest of us who earn our income by working for it. Is this fair? If not, what would a fairer system look like?"
BTW, Romper, you're not in the "large amount of capital" category. My ex collected almost as much from me as you're worth.

FiveThirtyEight Senate Forecast: Toss-Up or Tilt GOP?

By Nate Silver

We last issued a U.S. Senate forecast in mid-March. Not a lot has changed since then.

The Senate playing field remains fairly broad. There are 10 races where we give each party at least a 20 percent chance of winning,1 so there is a fairly wide range of possible outcomes. But all but two of those highly competitive races (the two exceptions are Georgia and Kentucky) are in states that are currently held by Democrats. Furthermore, there are three states — South Dakota, West Virginia, and Montana2 — where Democratic incumbents are retiring, and where Republicans have better than an 80 percent chance of making a pickup, in our view.

So it’s almost certain that Republicans are going to gain seats. The question is whether they’ll net the six pickups necessary to win control of the Senate. If the Republicans win only five seats, the Senate would be split 50-50 but Democrats would continue to control it because of the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Joseph Biden.

Our March forecast projected a Republicans gain of 5.8 seats. You’ll no doubt notice the decimal place; how can a party win a fraction of a Senate seat? It can’t, but our forecasts are probabilistic; a gain of 5.8 seats is the total you get by summing the probabilities from each individual race. Because 5.8 seats is closer to six (a Republican takeover) than five (not quite), we characterized the GOP as a slight favorite to win the Senate.

The new forecast is for a Republican gain of 5.7 seats. So it’s shifted ever so slightly — by one-tenth of a seat — toward being a toss-up. Still, if asked to place a bet at even odds, we’d take a Republican Senate.

silver-datalab-senatejune

Of course, it can be silly to worry about distinctions that amount to a tenth of a seat, or a couple of percentage points. Nobody cares all that much about the difference between 77 percent and 80 percent and 83 percent. But this race is very close. When you say something has a 47 percent chance of happening, people interpret that a lot differently than if you say 50 percent or 53 percent — even though they really shouldn’t.3

It’s important to clarify that these forecasts are not the results of a formal model or statistical algorithm — although it’s based on an assessment of the same major factors that our algorithm uses.(Our
tradition is to switch over to fully automated and algorithmic Senate forecasts at some point during the summer.)

The political landscape

We usually begin these forecast updates with a broad view of the political landscape. Not all that much has changed over the past couple of months.

President Obama remains fairly unpopular with an approval rating of about 43 or 44 percent. His numbers haven’t changed much since March (perhaps they’ve improved by half a percentage point). It may be that modestly improved voter perceptions about the economy are being offset by increasing dissatisfaction of his handling of foreign policy.
The generic congressional ballot remains very close between Democrats and Republicans and also has not changed much since March. Note, however, that many generic ballot polls are conducted among registered voters; a tie among registered voters usually translates to a small Republican advantage among likely voters.
Both Democratic and Republican voters report lower levels of enthusiasm today than they did in 2010 (perhaps for good reason). But Republican voters are more enthusiastic than Democrats on a relative basis. That will potentially translate to an “enthusiasm gap” which favors the GOP, but not as much as it did in 2010.
Republicans’ recruiting of viable candidates is going better than in 2010 and 2012 although not uniformly so: they face potential issues in Mississippi and Oregon, for instance.
The quality of polling is somewhat problematic. Much of it comes from firms like Public Policy Polling and Rasmussen Reports with dubious methodologies, explicitly partisan polling firms or new companies that so far have little track record. As a potential bright spot for Democrats, polling firms that use industry-standard methodologies seem to show slightly better results for them, on average. However, these high-quality polls are mostly reporting results among registered voters only, rather than likely voters. Thus, they aren’t yet accounting for the GOP’s potential turnout advantage.

If the macro environment hasn’t changed much, what about the environment in individual states and races? There have been a few shifts since March, but they mostly offset one another. We’ll start with the races where Democratic prospects look brighter than before.

Hey, Rogue, never heard of the Tesla, the Nissan Leaf, etc and the progress they've made with batteries, and how their range has grown?
You would've been a great naysayer in 1900 or so when cars arrived on the scene and started to replace the horse.Naw, you would've said, "nawwww, look , the noise, the cost, the repairs , cars will never replace horses and oxen".Same for windmills and solar panels. Progress they've made is incredible, and getting better. Will replace polluting plants the way the polluting but necessary car replaced the horse. Next step : Clean up the cars, electrify them and charge their batteries with clean solar, wind-driven and when calamitous, hydro power.
Yes, I know about Tesla, the Nissan Lead, etc. I also know you have to recharge them so the question is, were do you get the charge from? A Coal-fired power plant?
Solar only works when the sun is out. Wind only when there is ... wind. Water only when it is flowing!
Oh, another War Story from when I was stationed in Hawaii about 1975 which was the peak of the OPEC embargo. I think it was in Popular Science and it talked about generating your own electrical power through water. You have to have pressure that was equivalent of about a 100 foot water fall and then you needed X-gallons per hour. Well, a neighbor thought your could hook up a generator to your city water system and power your house and I asked him what his water bill would be? To make $50 of electricity you would probably use $500 of water!!!

The analysis is okay, but why bother? Because its conclusion pleases you? Or wets your appetite for a "Romney-type" ha ha victory? It's a mid-term election, the president But it's nonetheless strange (or is it?) that you HAVE to introduce the article with "Dummycrats". Whatever its merits, you've annulled it with your usual unsolicited and unwarranted show of hate. Too bad.

So what's new? It's a mid-term election, the president's in lame-duck mode, which means the party in power (the president's) ALWAYS loses seats. Tell us something we don't know.

And how are you going to recharge your batteries? Solar? Wind? Water? The odds are that about 85% that it will be from coal (60%), fuel-oil (15%) or natural gas (10%)? And if you batteries run out of charge on the road, then what do you do? Get toad in?

A year or so ago with the Datsun Leaf came out I read about a guy whose Leaf ran out of charge on the way to work and had to be toad in and he could not figure out why it would not go more than five miles. Well, when he got home he realized the circuit breaker had popped and his car did not get a full charge.
But the can not bring you out two gallon of electricity, can they? It is like flying a plain and you run out of gas, you do not park on a cloud and wate for the fuel truck!!!
