Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Fauxahontas DNA Results

The test results are consistent with her claim. That is the truth. Why must the "conservative" side be so devoted to denying the truth? Because there are a **** ton of Americans with that LATIN AMERICAN Gene and you don't hear them saying I have an ancestor. The results are consistent wit...

Re: RE: Re: Fauxahontas DNA Results

No it's not. I've seen manifestations of it. There are people all over the place that think the DNA tests showed that the woman is 1/1024th Native American. My Sister in Law is one of them. I even saw an anti Trump Republican woman who regularly appears on MSNBC lamenting Warren doing anything when...

Re: Blue Wave 2018

.Wages stagnant, inflation rising... :coffee: :lol: Literally the exact OPPOSITE is true. Wages are up 5% year over year and inflation has dropped to 2.2%. Any other #fakenews you got? Inflation is low but it didn't drop. See https://www.minneapolisfed.org/community/financial-and-economic-education...

So are you OK with us going along with a lie?

I'm talking about the Saudi Arabia thing. We all can see what is developing. The Saudis lied for the past few weeks about the guy being dead. Now we can see that they are about to produce some scapegoats to cover for their Crown Prince. Someone is going to take the fall in order to justify not holdi...

But BTW this 1/1024th thing is an example. A person who does that is either ignorant or dishonest. There is no way an informed, honest person would do that.

On what basis do you say that? Everything I've seen indicates that there is no evidence that she ever used a claim to be part Native American to secure employment. Here's one discussion including some discussion of that issue: https://www.factcheck.org/2017/12/elizabeth-warrens-pocahontas-controver...

The fact she got her law degree at U of Penn doesn't qualify as a red flag? Next you're going to say a U of Montana law grad is going to get hired at Harvard. She got her law degree at Rutgers. But for the Injun street cred, Harvard would never have hired her. On what basis do you say that? Everyth...

Re: Blue Wave 2018

First of all I looked up how Trump and the Republicans did among Blacks and Hispanics in some recent polls. I looked at t...

Re: RE: Re: Fauxahontas DNA Results

Possible, but not likely. I already posted on that. The midpoint of her range is well above the median. I can't tell for sure because I don't know all of the characteristics of the probability distribution. But I'd say there is about 87% confidence that she is above the median. Not enough to make a...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Fauxahontas DNA Results

Probably not but nothing like that happened. Harvard didn't trot Warren out as a woman of color at a time when they were being criticized as too white? I would say that shows she filled a Native American slot. Cleets even said Harvard was evil. Harvard did refer to her as "Native American"...

Re: Fauxahontas DNA Results

I am correct. The bottom line is that the results are consistent with Warren's claims about her ancestry in terms of her great, great, great grandmother being Native American. That 1 in 1024 thing is a crock. There is a large band of uncertainty because of the nature of genetics and because US Nati...

Re: Nikki Haley

Guys, the bottom line is that if you buy into that thing about not believing the polls you are only fooling yourself. Now, there is inherent imprecision. For example: The latest ABC News Washington Post Poll on the generic Congressional ballot has poll respondents saying they'll vote for Democrats o...

If people don't see the results as validating her claim they are ignorant. The results are consistent with her account. You're telling me that if a position at Harvard was open and it had a real Native American vs Warren, it would be justified to pick Warren due to her maybe having a Latin American...
