It doesn't take much to stir the pot here now does it. Of course I meant from my American perspective. Facts are facts. Many in here are so hysterical about some of the opinion folks on Fox News that they can't acknowledge the facts when it stares them in the face. Just a few minutes researching WorldPublicOpinion.org gives you all the information one would need to form a reasonable opinion on their perspective. It's as simple as that. I know some of you find it stunning that there are still people out here that actually take the time to educate themselves, rather than take another's opinion as gospel. Good Day!
All polls are taken at face value. If you're in the Republican/Foxnews/TeaParty camp that beleive our President is not a US citizen, that our taxes have gone up, Death Panels, and that the Recovery Act did not create a single job, then you've been well educated my friend!
garyW...........Your closed mindedness is mind numbing. An earlier poster warned you about making assumptions. You know the saying. No, I personally do not take polls at face value. I consider the source and how the questions were asked. Good Day.
TahoeTeal ... you don't seem to understand that we are in agreement about the poll. That's probably why I didn't post earlier about it in this thread or the other one ("Well, D'uh!"). And I like polls ... ask me and I'll post a chart for you.
But it was your "Supported by the Tides Foundation, Ben and Jerry's Foundation, to name a few" comment that tells me exactly where your're coming from, and I pointed it out. Even your "people out here that actually take the time to educate themselves" is pure Beckspeak. Sorry if I hit a nerve, or if the poll hit a nerve with you. It's not being closed minded, it's being upfront about your position if you follow Beck or if you despise him.
Whew, that was close! The room almost leveled out there for a second... nearly tilted back toward the right a couple of degrees. Thank gawd that was KO'd by a quick left cross. I'd hate to think an alternative POV might actually creep in here again. "Good day" in deed!
I have no problem with an alternative POV. And the whole Tides/Soros/Apollo Beck-doodah is certainly an alternate POV around here, because I don't recall any conservative on this forum posting that. Teal says I'm closed minded and need to educate myself, sorry, the catch phrases really aren't that enlighting (in a poll about FoxNews kinda way) .
I'm sure Alinsky, New Black Panthers, Che and Mao can find there way into this Left-leaning close-minded discussion too! Do you need a chart?
Quite a few of you sure seem to let Fox and Beck, et al get under your skin!
I use no one source as gospel. You can bash Fox News all you want but that has nothing to do with how I form my opinions.
garyW....you continue with your closed minded diatribe, even though you have no earthly way of knowing me and how I inform myself on issues. To you 1+1=3 just because of your conditioned pre-judgments. You are wrong about me. Don't know how more simply to put it. I do my own research and come to my own conclusions, period. I did not say you needed to educate yourself. I said "I know some of you find it stunning that there are still people out here that actually take the time to educate themselves, rather than take another's opinion as gospel." No nerves struck. I enjoy lively discussion. I have little patience for uninformed accusations.
