Joke Of The Day: Cars In Heaven Three men died and stood in front of God. God asked the first man if he had been faithful to his wife. The man admitted to two affairs during his marriage. God gave him a compact car to drive in heaven.

The second man admitted to only one affair and was given a mid-sized car.

The third man was asked the same question and said that he had been faithful to his wife until the day he died. God praised him and gave him a big luxury car.

A week later the three guys met in a parking lot in heaven. The man driving the luxury car began to cry.

“What’s the matter?” the other two men asked.

He replied, “I just passed my wife, and she was riding a bike!”

Media Spins Positive Trump Poll as Negative: 88 percent of those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 would do so again, but you wouldn’t know it by the way the media is reporting it!

Reuters Spins Positive Trump Poll As Negative

From Accuracy in Media:

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that 88 percent of those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 would do so again, but you wouldn’t know it by the way the media is reporting it.

Here’s the headline from Reuters reporting on its own poll;

“Do-over: 1 in 8 people who voted for Trump want to change their vote-Reuters/Ipsos poll”

Although the headline isn’t patently false, it is deceptive since seven of eight Trump voters said they would vote for him again.

From the Reuters story (emphasis mine):

About one in eight people who voted for President Donald Trump said they would not do so again after witnessing Trump’s tumultuous first six months in office, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2016 voters.

While most of the people who voted for Trump on Nov. 8 said they would back him again, the erosion of support within his winning coalition of older, disaffected, mostly white voters poses a potential challenge for the president. Trump, who won the White House with the slimmest of margins, needs every last supporter behind him to push his agenda through a divided Congress and potentially win a second term in 2020.

The poll surveyed voters who had told Reuters/Ipsos on Election Day how they had cast their ballots. While other surveys have measured varying levels of disillusionment among Trump supporters, the Reuters/Ipsos poll shows how many would go as far as changing the way they voted. The survey was carried out first in May and then again in July.

In the July survey, 12 percent of respondents said they would not vote for Trump “if the 2016 presidential election were held today” – 7 percent said they “don’t know” what they would do, and the remaining 5 percent would either support one of the other 2016 presidential candidates or not vote.

Eighty-eight percent said they would vote for Trump again, a slight improvement over the May figure of 82 percent. Taken together, the polls suggest that Trump’s standing with his base has improved slightly over the past few months despite his Republican Party’s repeated failures to overhaul the healthcare system and multiple congressional and federal investigations into his campaign’s ties to Russia.

To be sure, most presidents lose support among core supporters the longer they are in the White House. According to the Gallup polling service, former President Barack Obama saw his popularity dip among Democrats and minority voters, though it did not come until later in his first term. But Obama, who won the Electoral College with greater margins than Trump, was not as reliant on retaining his core supporters.

The minority of Trump voters who said they would not vote for him again gave varying reasons in interviews for why they had changed their minds.

Reuters admits that most people who back him again and that a minority would not, yet it ran a headline that played up the minority opinion in an attempt to create the impression that Trump voters were losing faith in the president when in fact they were significantly more supportive than they were two months ago.

Not only that, they ran the following chart which flies in the face of what they were trying to convey.

Reuters Spins Positive Trump Poll as Negative

Reuters deserves a F for trying to foist this positive Trump poll on the public as a negative when in fact it showed the president’s strength increasing among us supporters.

What The Shape Of Your Butt Says About Your Health
People sit a lot. Like … a lot, a lot.

Over the past hundred years, humans have gone from easily walking those 10,000 coveted steps every day to barely hitting 1,000 even with a Fitbit on their wrist.

The tragic realization is that with all this sitting and the lack of walking, we’ve lost one of our prime assets: our bums.

But not every bum is alike, and each comes with its own set of problems and perks.

So read over this article, find out which category you fall into and bring back that booty!

Squared Off

The square or “H”-shaped bum comes from either high hip bones or a bit of extra fat in the love handle region. This can make your derriere look flat rather than giving it the coveted round look. Unfortunately, it could take a lot of squats to get that curve.

“O” My

The round or “O”-shaped bum means there is more fat storage in the upper parts of your glutes.

Luckily, this gives the bum a perky appearance, so it’s pretty easy to get that curved shape with a few glute-strengthening moves.

Heart-Shaped Bum

Just like the shape, the heart-shaped bum is usually fullest at the bottom and tapers out at the top. This can mean more fat is stored in the upper thighs. While this type of bum is one of the more coveted ones, as women age and lose estrogen, the fat that’s stored around the glutes slowly but surely moves to the mid-section.

“V” For Very Low Estrogen

This is the bum commonly seen in older women once they’ve started losing estrogen. As with the heart shape, the fat storage that used to be in the bum has moved to the abdomen or mid-section. Without hard work, this bum can be prone to sagging.
