How convinced would you be if polygraph experts said the statements made during a lie-detector test were 99% reliable?
Having said that, there is some consensus around how to interpret various readings and they *probably* are accurate for *most* people.
If you're asking about this in relation to Stormy Weathers, the polygraph doesn't mean anything to me - I believe her.
Doubling back to our conversation about the NRA....I don't know how statistically relevant this is, but it did make me think.
I was talking to a friend in Ohio about everything that happened recently, and mentioned that companies are ditching their affiliations with the NRA like crazy. When I said that, she said "Ah, that reminds me - I have to cancel my NRA membership". I was shocked to hear her say that she had a membership to cancel. She told me that a few years ago when she got insurance, her banker told her that if she bought a NRA membership for $30 (or something like that) she'd save hundreds of dollars on her insurance policy. Apparently tons of her friends were told the same thing - if you're buying insurance, buy a NRA membership - it will save you a ton of money.
We know that the NRA gets its money from gun manufacturers and not from its members (for the most part)...they just need membership numbers to have the appearance of a threatening voting block. I wonder how many of their NRA's members have no interest in guns and just bought it to save on insurance or some other thing?

Trump's list of things to mention when talking to the families of the shooting victims in Florida. #5 "I hear you". He needed a note to remind himself to express empathy.
