Fall Planting

Something that is offbeat for this time of year, especially in an election year, is planting flowers.
Every spring I become a gardening nut. I start a flower garden every year. I usually plant marigolds, alyssums, bluebells, and what else suits my mood. Last year I even planted a rose bush with a cemented rock border to compliment it.
Fall is a great time to plant shrubs and perennials because of the left over heat in the ground from the summer. Usually perennials, shrubs, and bushes are fairly resistant to drought in case there is one the following summer.
Back in early May I planted pumpkins, which I do not believe sprouted because in the middle of May, a late and extremely heavy frost came. It is unusual to have a frost that late in the year, but this is Pennsylvania. It usually does not get down to 28 degrees Fahrenheit at night in the middle of May.
Next spring I do have some plans of my flower garden layout, but not 100% sure what I am planting yet. I will post that next spring.

S-3930-This is dangerous!!!!!!!

I am so upset with bill S-3930. I am not going to discuss it too much. I am at a loss for words. This is an abomination to the Bill of Rights. I signed the petition myself. This bill that was passed is about denying rights to American Citizens. Americans can now be "disappeared." Detain them indefinitely without any legal defense. This is the most un-American bill ever passed You may read the rest of it here.

Sunday Post #4

Political polls.
A few weeks ago, I had posted a brief description of political polls and how they were taken. I have gathered as much accurate information I could, just so I could learn more specific details of how the polls are taken.
Political poll demographics do vary. A study could range from registered voter in general or registered voters more likely to vote. It is not always accurate because a person may not be a part of the demographic population could be inadvertently participating in the poll.
The preference person to poll is a register voter who has voted in the past.
There are as few as 800 included in the polls and can be as high as 2000 per study. This can also effect polling scores, because of the amount of people could give a better or worse picture of a predicted election.
The system of polling is not 100% accurate. The purpose of polling is so candidates can find a plausible prediction in the outcome of the election. It is the closest to an election you can get to trying to predict who wins.
Political polls are generally are conducted by media outlets and private polling companies. Believe it or not there are companies that specialize in political polling to conduct the surveys.
Certain news situations can effect polls for approval ratings as well as political candidates running for office. The factors can also depend on how the order the questions are asked.
They are not always correct. There usually is a margin of error that depends on how many people taking the survey and geographical location, on how a specific population votes in an election.
