I has them.
CNN/ORC poll (I didn’t realize Sauron was polling for Hillary) PDF Warning.
Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling:
Government surveillance of U.S. citizens
Approve Disapprove No opinion
May 29-31, 2015* 29% 67% 4%
June 11-13, 2013 35% 61% 4%
So most people are against the gov’t spying on us.
But then they get to this question
As you may know, the law allowing the National Security Administration (NSA) to collect and
analyze information on the phone calls of most Americans in order to locate suspected terrorists (emphasis me V) is set to expire on Monday, June 1. Do you think Congress should or should not renew that law and allow the collection of telephone data to continue?
May 29-31 2015
Should renew 61%
Should not renew 36%
No opinion 3%
It’s all in the wording.
I’d ask, “Do you want the gov’t to snoop on your phone calls even though they’ve admitted it has not caught any terrorists” and I’d bet I get entirely different answers. Maybe mention how Nidal Hassan was all over the place calling for Death To America!!! (sorta like Obama but less obvious about it) and yet, they didn’t catch him.
Push polls: The
cornerstone subversion of democracy.
Speaking of misunderstanding democracy, how funny is it that in the birthplace of democracy they have no idea as to what it means?
The Greeks are upset that the people giving them a few billion euros expect Greece to act responsibly, with the Prime Minister saying this.
In other words, this means the complete abolition of democracy in Europe, the end of every pretext of democracy,
I’m with him on that, but he seems to be blaming the EUnuchs instead of the Greeks.
Listen, if you’re living on their money you’ll live by their rules.
You don’t get to decide how to spend other people’s money in democracy. That’s an entirely different sort of governing philosophy.
My question here is:
Did Paco misspell “En Loco Parentis”?
We’ve all seen the story about the school that had a class trip to a porn store, but I hadn’t seen the name of the school anywhere else
The Gaia Democratic School
Is it a hate crime to send your kids there?
My question, is this the first time someone Wins and Loses the Comment of the Day?
First, the losing comment from FrnakJ
At this point it would be easier if you announce if you’re not running for president. BTW, I have no announcement to make.
Sonomabatch, we’ve been waiting 10 years for him to run and now he’s blowing us off? That pisses me off.
Now the winner. Also from FrnakJ in the same post
Reminder: You don’t get to choose whether criminals are armed. Only whether law abiding people are.
Bingo, bango, bongo.
