It does not in any way say that "that one of the attorney's taking depositions from Chrysler found out, while taking depositions that Chrysler does not want to shut down dealers. That is a completely different matter with a completely different significance to the subject.

So, was it just the Attorney's opinion, did Beck say it wrong, did you write it wrong or was it intended to mislead?

I have read neither the article nor any of the associated statistics, since the topic seems absolutely moronic. Common sense alone suggests that at least 70% (at least -- 80-85% wouldn't surprise me at all) of American car dealership owners are Republican, thus any number between 60-80% would be expected as a base norm. You get that, right?

Wow - you are really that dense - he got the info from the depositions. Now that I know you have no intellect to use inductive reasoning I will try to be more clear.

Then why so far over 99% GOP supporters closed?

Edit: And a refusal for transparency to the reasoning?

Just glancing through the first 14 pages of that rather long and tedious list you posted (the one that doesn't include any donations from the Clinton years), I'd guess it looks about 70-30 GOP at best. Anyone who takes this ridiculous tinfoil crap seriously needs to turn off the AM radio and regroup. Absolutely moronic. For goodness sake, get a grip.

How do you know that he gleaned the opinion from the depositions? Or do you ASSUME that? Could he also have political basis for the tint of his opinions? Could he have gleaned the opinion based on conversation outside of depositions? Could he have clients that find that posture advantagious? I don't make assumptions when reading. It leads to misinterpretation.

From where are you getting your 99% number? There should be four groups of dealers.
  • Those who gave to Republicans,
  • those who gave to Democrats,
  • those who gave to both and
  • those who gave to neither.

Until we see a database that provides ALL of the information I assume we are seeing skewed data, considering the source material shown to date.

Budd,

Get a grip. "Inductive reasoning" is not some high intellectual capability, it is a fancy sounding set of words for making up bullshit - lying in more common terms. In fact, in math and science the concept of "inductive reasoning" is generally considered to be a figment of smaller minds. Like yours as you apparently believe merely stating the lawyer (often considered another fancy word for liar) got his information from the depositions means that is where he got the information from, without any back up other than that blustery bullshit you tossed out at mcbear.

Inductive reasoning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is the first line of the Wiki entry:

"Induction or inductive reasoning, sometimes called inductive logic, is reasoning which takes us "beyond the confines of our current evidence or knowledge to conclusions about the unknown.""

I was at a dinner table this evening with six people. One reminded my of some of our Shrinking28. We talked about two hours as a group. As dinner ended he hit the bar for drinks...alone. The rest of us wandered up to my room for another short planner for tomorrow morning.

One of the folks said that this guy was about to drive her nuts, two more chimed in. One asked how I could just continue to talk to him, walk him in circles and watch as he painted himself into corner after corner [this was a table of six systems analysts and one marketing "guru"]. I just laughed and said I had lots of practice.

Guess which one was the marketing guy?
