So when the KKK shows up in town armed and ready for a fight, people should be pacifists and take their shit?

It's an agregator, so it doesn't really work the same way.

I realize that...   but its within the margin of error of any poll....  so seeing such a small change is, essentially, meaningless.

538 has approval pegged at 38.5% which is down .5%

Doesn't sound like much, but it was at 39.5% for a little while, so this may signal erosion of base support.

That's within the margin of error...  so no change.  Don't get excited over a single percent, unless it's a clear trend over time.

The question is pretty vague...   

"approve" might mean "not kill them" to someone, while to another it may mean full legal rights to marriage, adoption, etc.

The language in the poll needs to be less ambiguous before I take it seriously.  It should have asked "should gays be afforded full legal rights to marriage, blah, blah, blah"...   I suspect the results would have been different.

Is there a way to shrink pictures so they're not so big when you link to them?

A potlatch ceremony is not the same as polygamy.  False equivocation.

Not every burnout is an act of bigotry.  Putting monuments onto the pavement where cars drive...   well, expect some rubber on them.

I think Horgan was backed into a corner where he shouldn't have found himself and now he's stuck....

The twinning of the pipeline and extra traffic didn't seem like a bad compromise to most people.

I'm not going to bother listening to the podcast, so can you show us evidence (cite) that this actually happened?

I think posts like this should get a warning and be deleted.  Singling out a poster for ridicule shouldn't be allowed.
