Come on Irish Citizenship, then I am outta here. Oy.


I fully expect bush to order airstrikes on Iran before he leaves office.

That is, unless Fox News beats him to it.



52%? really?

i thought it would be closer to 80% by now. the propagandists are slacking off.


Convince an enemy, convince him that he's wrong
Is to win a bloodless battle where victory is long
A simple act of faith in reason over might
To blow up his children will only prove him right
History will teach us nothing

It would seem that the political memory of the average US citizen is even shorter than I had feared.


Hi, liked your comments on surveys. Having a partjob doing surveysI have sat in my chair asking the same questions, getting about the same answers for 15 hours a week for 9 months now. Sometimes yu get so bored that you just change the emphasis no one different word in the sentence and you can change the results. An example. I do a survey and the last two lines are "Can I tell John Courage he can count on your support in this Congressional election?" If I emphasize the word your very strongly with my voice I can raise the yes answers for John Courage by 10 to 14% in the final tally. If I read it thru in a monotone voice and hit the word your a bit lighter than the other words, I can drop his support 5% or so than if I just read it normal and do not alter my voice. Polls are useful, but who sponsors the polls can get the results they seek, or are willing to pay for. For me, it pays the bills, and I can sit instead of spend the time on my feet.
Glad to visit with someone from Cleveland, I am from Dayton, but now in
Texas- also a red state, but I am in a blue city- as you are. - Mike
