What does this topic have to do with Greek mythology?

Heh, in my precinct we're mostly fat old commercial fishermen; we're already three sheets in the wind hours before we stumble into the booth!

Hmm. I always thought that trolls were part of Norse mythology, but I'll defer to your expertise and experience.

First you commit a fallacy. In terms of what was being discussed, I made no claims about voting trends. You make the mistake of assuming this was a statement about past elections. It's not. It's a statement about now, not a college Theseus on voter suppression.

Second, it was a commentary with the same level of research, i.e. none, given in response to a comment about Voter ID that was an opinion. There was never any claims made more than what was presented. If you thought it was shotty, then that is really your issue. It was an opinion son.

Finally, if you were really interested in finding out ratio of voters to none, I assume that since you claim to be an engineer then you have the skills to look them up yourself. Hint: Try the NCBOE where the statistics came from that I posted. I would have hoped you would have taken stock at what WAS posted rather than what wasn't and reached a conclusion about that, rather than cook up something about how I post.

If you guys want to have a discussion on voter suppression, then be my guest even though it really doesn't have anything to do with this topic, but please don't drag my name into it.
Lol, don't state opinion and use nonsensical numerical data to support it, else it goes beyond opinions. You tried to base an ill-fated argument on a set of meaningless data....doesn't require a thesis related significance statement to note a bunch of numerical garbage....son.

I posted voter statistics from the NC BOE. The only nonsense is your making such a case out of it. There is never anything wrong to show where an opinion comes from.

No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with an opinion but you provided one set of data and attempted to make an unsubstantiated claim or generalization about voter behavior. Any credible behavioral study requires volumes of observed/random data to draw any sort of conclusion. Stick with opinions not infererences or claims from limited numbers/stats, else you run the risk of being called out for nonsense.

These types of unfounded assertions are at the heart of voter apathy or self-imposed voter suppression, it comes across as hog wash and when confronted, most elected officals or leaders don't possess the intestinal fortitude to admit an error of omission or commission.

One more time. I gave an opinion, not a scientific study, not a book of rules, not a PHD research project, not citing laws. I'm telling you that it is an opinion so this should no longer be a question for you. So move on Son, there is nothing else to this.
