A ray of hope from the grassroots

Infidel753, A ray of hope from the grassroots, Infidel753 Blog Mid-December commentary by Infidel753 as taken from his site as known by the same title.

Don’t worry about the polls — yet

Infidel753, Don’t worry about the polls — yet, Infidel753 Blog I’ve previously discussed (scroll down a bit) why disagreeable poll results about next year’s election are not grounds for despair about the likely outcome.  In brief, while polling averages are usually a good indicator of what the public is thinking at a given moment, they don’t have […]

Viruses of the mind

Guest post as written by Infidel753 and taken from his Blog of the same name.
