    Moore's opponent barely won. Hardly a refutation.

    Following the Las Vegas odds any reasonable bettor which I am would have concluded an easy night for Roy moore.
    the last odds before voting started were Moore -510, Jones +350. The books were begging to get money on Jones.
    Las Vegas knew of the troubling accusations & the fact that Dems spent 10X more than the Moore campaign,
    but regardless they had Moore as a big favorite. There was one fact that they didn’t factor in, few if any dd.

    African-American women (18% of electorate) went for Jones 97-3, per preliminary exit polls.
    So if your acquainted with elementary math Black women supplied 234,000 votes for Jones
    and 7,000 for Moore, that’s one thing Las Vegas didn’t expect.

    Now if you are an accuser, a contributor to the Jones campaign or a black women congratulations
    you have reason to be elated & celebrate, otherwise don’t be so giddy. .

    Gambling is a personal flaw. That you decided to bet in a place where entire fortunes have been lost is your lack of reason. Nobody else's.
    Peace is a lie. There is only Passion. Through Passion I gain Strength. Through Strength I gain Power. Through Power I gain Victory. Through Victory my chains are Broken. The Force shall free me.

    You opened the door on this one. No one who plays the odds would bet $510 on Moore to win $100 certainly not me, but I have to give bettors
    who despise Trump like yourself credit for lowering the odds enough for me to make $650 for betting that Trump will stilll be president on
    New Years day. Only two weeks to go:

    Sports book only allowed $50 bets at one time so I pounded this one throughout the year. Again thanx again to those like you who bet the odds down
    thinking or hoping or betting with their hearts instead on their minds. $3562 to win $650 only 2 weeks to go for a happy new year.

    Blacks, Latinos, women, Dems, and independents turned out in greater numbers than previously in ruby-red Alabama.

    Yes. A definite refutation of Roy Moore.

    How, you ask? Consider this and this.
