Letter To The Editor: Doug Gerard's Voting Analysis Is Crap

Dear editor: According to the Letter to the Editor there were 45 representatives involved in this statistical analysis. But I just doubled checked and there are 60 representatives in the Wyoming House of Representatives. Did the other 15 just vanish into thin air?

Today I read this charming but questionable Letter to the Editor about how our representatives vote statistically in the House of Representatives of Wyoming.  

By the end of the article it reminded me that if you ate dill pickles on your hamburger before being sent to Southeast Asia then you were 100% going to be a fatality in the Vietnam War.   

In fact it was almost too easy to shoot this letter down in flames.  Let’s start with the numbers. 

According to the Letter to the Editor there were 45 representatives involved in this statistical analysis. But I just doubled checked and there are 60 representatives in the Wyoming House of Representatives. Did the other 15 just vanish into thin air?  

Did their participation not count in our state affairs or was the co-chairman Jeremy Haroldson of the Freedom Caucus just left off account the results of supposed statistical analyses might have been screwed a but out the point this gentleman was tying to make of the “balanced approach” he is trying to make. 

Which now begs the answer about the other 14 representatives also not listed. Perhaps we got lucky and they did not want to be apart of a total misrepresentation of facts or they don’t want you to know how far they have jumped off the rails. 

I guess I will figure out who these 14 are and see what they are so afraid of not to let the common voters see their personal take as your representatives. I will list these other 14 when I can eliminate the ones already listed

There are many reasons why a particular representative may vote on a particular bill but we already know the Freedom Caucus has a paid consultant that acts as a gatherers of what the real leaders back east are wanting and making sure the Caucus knows via phone even during session on how to vote and boy you don’t want to cross these guys because your independence is equal to RINO!   

I can only assume that the Freedom Caucus agenda is not all that popular as one might think. If it is so popular why such a poor example of the gobbledygook of a statistical analysis with pretty dots and strange squiggles suppose to represent something but what?   

Statistics is an interesting study but this is not statistics. Sorry, thanks for trying but I can see Bull Puckies acting as what gobbledygook!
