I hope LogansRun is not put off by acts of pettiness.

Ok..I see your point, wouldn't that be like giving Ed a warning for his thread title, "It's the economy stupid and it good" he's not calling anyone stupid....just generalizing....same thing isn't it?

As to the number of people polled, it is not so much how many are polled, but how those people are chosen.

The trouble with polls is they are rarely acurate and rarely reflect the true thoughts of the population. (the population thinks?..lol)
Nobody polled me.
Did you participate in this poll?
Who did they poll?
If you read the link ed provided you will see how misleading the poll is, not they did not call you or me but only hardly over 1000 people to said that is the seventy percent of the population.
I think ed just won the ATS top award on misleading threads.

Looks like all those abstenance lectures for the schoolkids have paid off.
In other news 79% of American parents have a virgin daughter who gave birth.
Originally posted by zerotime We have become so accustom to the fact that we are alive that we have forgotten that the essence of life is truly itself a miracle. I think most people chose not be believe in things greater than their human senses can interpret because to do anything else would also mean losing control over the illusion of reality that each person creates in their mind. In the end, we are all afraid of the truth.

Could it be that intelligent people are being falsely convinced that they are surrounded by morons. Making intelligent people feel less empowered? I am getting more and more suspicious of all this supposed dumbing down of America.
Maybe the battle over hearts and minds in Iraq is not the one to be concerned with. Maybe it is the destruction of hearts and minds and hope right here in America, where corporations want people to feel depressed and needy. So they will think this product and that product will make everything great and to keep them addicted to all those legal drugs everyone is taking.
Does a pusher like anything more than a desperate junkie?
