It's no relief for me! :lol: But, it gives me a first-hand, direct line to how the average American thinks. My point, as it were, was that it would be pretty hard for anyone to *not* interact with the "public". But I'm just an ass like that. I kind of figured that's what you meant. But, there are a...

I work with the public. That's a relief. It's no relief for me! :lol: But, it gives me a first-hand, direct line to how the average American thinks. I also notice that fewer conservatives are foaming at the mouth this year. But, there has also been a marked increase in clothing, buttons, and bumper...

I don't know. Call me naive, but I still have enough faith in the electorate to believe that most voters see polls as complete bullshit. I don't think too many "fence sitters" are going to vote one way just because some Gallup poll suggests that a majority of voters are likely to. Then again, I've ...

There was a headline story in the local paper about this very thing yearterday. It laied out pretty much what was stated in Rspaight's post except for Gallup donating money to the GOP. I would like to believe that the average voter is smart enough to ignore polls, but, sadly, we know better. I don'...

I could, but I have no where to post it. Besides, unless the bit-rate was high enough, all the information on the CD need for my evidence would be skewed.

Seems the Republicans and Republican sympathisers will do every evil thing they can to keep their man W in office. It's just good for business.

If the government is monitoring this board: STOP WASTING OUR MONEY READING THIS AND GO FIX HEALTH CARE! Thanks for listening. Ryan The republican answer to that would be to shut up, get a job, and make enough money to BUY your own healthcare, all while these rich lawyers and shareholders continue t...

Stuff like this has been happening all over the country since 9/11, and it's getting worse as the stakes fot the oval office is so high. JUst a continuing example of how conservatives are bullying people into silence. I proudly sport a Kerry/Edwards sticker on my car, and I will not lose my job over...

I will also note that what constitutes a "minority" is subject to political considerations. In certain counties in my state, Portugese are considered a minority because they had the political clout to get this written into the regulations. And in California, there is no majority! There may me a min...

Yeh, Dob, but the only pain we can know is our own. The only real solution is to close ranks and fight all of it. We all must help each other. Just because i'm black doesn't mesan that racism is all I care about. There are tons of things I care about. It's just that I don't shy away from the issue o...

When I think about what these kids and what my own brother went through, it's hard for me to muster up much sympathy for the difficulties of overcoming "subtle" prejudice. Ahh, but it's the subtle prejudice that is the most insidious! It's kept hidden for a reason. Similarly, my college educated pa...

Hey Dob, Racism is very ingrained into our society, and sometimes very difficcult for those not directly affected by it to recognize. The same goes for sexism. Also, many indians and Asians have lighter skin color. There are many people who still equate civil beghavior and intelligence with the shad...
