Back to my original question: Would The results of the poll be more credible if the Heritage Foundation had conducted/funded it? The questions were probably rather straight forward. "Do you believe that President Obama is a US citizen," etc? This ain't rocket science.
Stop with that business about I'm left of you. It's about as aggravating as T. is right of 6 is centered over S. is behind and C. is nowhere.
I'm as sick of being defined by other peoples perceptions of my politics as probably the majority of the peeps who stopped posting here. And just as sick as I am of hearing the "they're losers, so they just went slinkin' away into the night" crap. Earth to LeBox? Dems are now officially losers. Political fortune and misfortune is an equal opportunity nailer.
And I not only don't remember mojo making a less than graceful exit ~ I don't believe it happened. To paraphrase? Link or it never happened.
Since you replied to me, I don't see any comment I ever made about mojo's leaving. I don't see any comment I made about "slinkin' away into the night" crap. I made my comments regarding you specifically on the tax cut debate, the healthcare debate, the war policy. If I'm to respond to the comment that I'm the most closed-minded left leaning liberal on the board I was making the point to that.
This thread is a total clusterf*ck. (That's Stewart-speak. You can assume accurately that I am a fan of John Stewart when I post that term in a reply).
It never ceases to amaze me how quickly an unpopular (to this room) proposition gets tagged as a fustercluck. I stated the opinion that the box leans too far to the left and that those predisposed to a starboard view tend to get piled on before they've had a chance to hang up their hat. And my gawd, look at the wrist-wringing that's gone on. Yeesh!
When a thread that begins as a political discussion turns into days of personal bickering, pychoanalysis of other's opinions ( yes, guilty), and talk about forum members not participating in the thread, then it is a clusterf*ck. We've been down this path before ... with or without the involvement of socks. I don't believe it has anything to do with your stated opinion of a left-leaning forum. But you can. And yes, your wiener is small, your mother never loved you, and the flying unicorn in your dream does represent your failure to earn the respect from the people that know you.
I thought another poster already answered that one for you earlier. No, I don't think that the Heritage Foundation would be without bias. I haven't seen the questions so I can't presume that they were "probably" straightforward. Exactly, this ain't rocket science. Polls can certainly be created in such a way that one can obtain the desired results of preconceived notions. I've seen that many times. I tend to not pay much attention to polls other than for amusement. I prefer to arrive at my opinion by other means. Let's face it, most polls are total crap anyway.
I think I covered your point about "conspiracy jargon" with this earlier comment, "Hmmmmmm.............So anyone that posts a conservative opinion is automatically assumed to be a disciple of Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, etc? If any topic is ever touched upon by the aforementioned conservative commentators, henceforth all who speak on said topic will be considered ill informed and merely spewing right wing talking points." Do you honestly believe that the only way to come to hold the opinions I've expressed is via conservative opinion programming? Follow the money my man. The internet makes it pretty easy.
Since when did this thread become about me?
This is beginning to remind me of my past attempts to have rational discussion with my ex-wife..........yikes!
You've posted 9 times in this thread and have made zero conservative opinions. Zilch.
If any topic is ever touched upon by the aforementioned conservative commentator...
The topic was the poll on misinformed voters. Your comment was that it was a result of influence of the Tides Foundation. Tides (along with Ben & Jerry Foundation) is the centerpiece of every Beck chalkboard conspiracy chart. Beck says regularly that he's the only one in the media telling people for years about Tides.
I didn't post my reply to your first post about any conservative political opinion, I posted it about the Beck influence in your Tides Foundation conspiracy opinion.
Since when did this thread become about me?
In all your posts you've now had about 7 questions about yourself being prejudged and how the steel-traps in this forum won't allow your conservative POV.
You haven't posted your conservative POV. You've called yourself a conservative, and you've said many times how the liberal slant of this forum is somehow poised against you. I fail to see a single instance in this thread where your "conservative POV" is being challenged.
The only POV that I challenge is your first post and it's conspiratorial reference. I told you where I know that conspiratorial reference originates. I later called it flamebait as you never bothered to explain why it was important enough to bring up. You only replied repeatedly how poorly you're being treated. Buck up.
