Four Foot Two and Eyes Of Blue

Union Trash

Union trash is a union member 1. who thinks they know everything, 2. who thinks they are entitled to everything, 3. who expects a pay raise and more benefits every year but don’t necessarily work any harder just because they paid their dues, 4. they are often egomaniacs, lacks common sense, bureaucratic, loud, obnoxious and malcontents, and 5. one or any combination of the above. These people are difficult to get rid of in the workplace.

Raise Their Taxes, Not Mine

“Raise my taxes! Raise my taxes! Raise my taxes!” they chanted, lined up shoulder to shoulder for a few hundred yards stretching a street in front of the Capitol.

Really, the Unions want people to pay more taxes, so they can have more of your money.  They even demonstrated their anger over not getting enough of your tax payer money.  That’s your taxes, that’s your cost for goods and services, that’s your cost, when democrats and Unions pair up.  Those Unions that are tied into government spending are especially expensive and cost political votes.

As I read this article, with great astonishment, from the Chicago Tribune, about how Unions members are being bused into the capitol by the thousands, to demand the government, raise their taxes.  Along with everyone else’s taxes, of course.  Who paid for this Union day off for protesting?   Was this boondoggle paid for by taxpayer money?  Somebody had to pay for the workers, the buses, the time off work.  The gas used to bus these people into the capitol, how much was that?  Where did they get the buses, and how much did that cost the taxpayers?

Making threatening statements:

“These 177 people who have a job don’t want to do their job,” said Henry Bayer, head of the Illinois chapter of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, referring to the number of lawmakers in the House and Senate. “Yes people are hurting, that’s why we need a tax increase….If you try to leave town without doing your job we’re going to chase you.”

Kind of an ominous threat, don’tcha think?   However, Governor Pat Quinn (D), really wants a 33% tax increase for Illinois.  So what will become of Illinois if they really do raise taxes?  In today’s fragile economic environment, the Unions want their taxes raised?  I suppose this will either attract more Union people to move to the State of Illinois, or force out of the state, all the Non-Union people and their families.  Either way, living in Illinois, is going to get very expensive for a lot of people.

Colorful Demonstrations

Wearing outfits of various colors, and representing Unions of various government entities and services, the people marched on the capitol.  This, somewhat large, Union demonstration is somewhat localized to Illinois.  We have not seen this level of demonstrations by any other Unions, anywhere else in the country.  Unlike Tea Party demonstrations, like those that took place during on Tax Day, April 15th, 2010, the message was against raising taxes and government more spending.  Although, New Jersey’s Governor, Chris Christie, is getting quite a few protests just because he wants a pay freeze to get control of an out of control budget.

New Jersey’s Unions get, from the day they are hired, to the day they die, full medical and retirement pay.  Until, the day they die.  Full medical benefits until they die.  Is that fair to the rest of the non-Union tax payers in New Jersey?

Here in Hawai’i, we have out of control Union spending also.  Not as bad as New Jersey’s problems, but eventually it will reach that level of crisis.  Especially, should former Congressman Neil Abercrombie (D) should win the governor’s seat in Hawai’i.  Abercrombie is a huge Union supporter and much of his voting base is the Union organizations in Hawai’i.  This means that Abercrombie will obey the demands of a bloated, overpaid, Union, and not to the needs of the state.  Under the current Union model, there is no accountability.  Take the Hawai’i Teachers Union decision to use furlough days to reduce class time for students.  Instead of doing what’s right for the children, the Unions decided to act irresponsible and deny their own children a good education.  Now, the Union blames the Governor of Hawai’i for their bad decisions.   Do these Union people understand they are hurting their own children’s future?


Well, it is freedom of speech.  Nothing is different about either this protest, or a Tea Party protest.  When it comes to free speech, this is it, and this is where I, part reason and agreement, 180 degrees from the Unions.  The First Amendment’s purpose is to allow free assembly, and opinion of, and by, the populace, groups, organizations to express their agreement with the government, or their displeasure thereof.   So what?

I was searching for a video of the Springfield Union demonstration where they are screaming “Raise My Taxes”, when Allapundit at HotAir just posted it.  Unfreaking Believable!


Why not let capitalism work for you?  You’ll get government accountability, and the ability to better manage Taxpayers money.  Just like in private industry, the government should be outsourcing public services.  Those services should be actively bid upon by private groups for the jobs the state will pay for.  From Teaching to Trash collection, these services should be hired, and fired, based off of performance goals.  If a group working for the state fails to meet the requirements of the job, then they should fire them, and another group should be hired to do the job.

Make government to work like a regulated business, with profit and loss statements, and budgetary requirements.  Every State must follow these rules, why not the Federal Government.

Unions are a monopoly within State and Federal governments.  Private enterprise hasn’t a chance of getting any of the “well paying jobs” the government offers.  Once you get a government job, you are then required to join a Union.  Pay Union dues, follow Union rules, and vote for Union friendly politicians.  That inherently creates a conflict of interest.


1. Outsource State and Federal Jobs.

Make the Unions work like real businesses that have to compete for work like in the Free Market.  If this Union didn’t work well on the job, then get rid of them and hire the other Union to do the job right.  But wait, there’s no other Union, is there.  There’s no competition.  There’s no real collective bargaining, unless you consider the collective, as being coerced, and assimilated by the Unions.  Give us what we want, or we won’t vote for you.  Collective Bargaining, or Collective Extortion?  Eliminate exclusivity of State and Federal jobs to only Unions.

2. Raise the taxes of the Union people, Only.

Leave all of us Non-Union workers out of the Union demanded tax increase.  You may want to even lower our taxes, so that as our prosperity increases, the government revenues also increases, just like during the Bush and Reagan tax cuts.  The model of Capitalism has proven to work, we’ve had almost 400 years of successful experimentation with this model.  With only progressive and socialist speed bumps along the way, this country has succeed  in being the leader of world economic development, economic harmony, and a greater standard of living.

Why do people jump fences, allow themselves to be cattle-carted in freight containers, and sneak into this country in the first place.  What is it that drives those people, from all over the planet, to this country?   Why would people make such sacrifices, to leave their families for long periods of time, and travel to this country?  What is it about this country that offers something that cannot be found in their country, or anywhere else in the world?

So, Unions want their taxes raised.  OK then, lets make a special law that raises taxes “ONLY” on Unions.

Problem Solved, don’tcha think?

As these people march down the streets of the Illinois capitol screaming for the state to raise their taxes, I have to wonder if they really understand what they are asking.  Raising taxes causes a ripple effect across the entire economy.  The cost of everything goes up.  Taxing one group over another, like taxing the wealthy, also causes detrimental effects to the economy.

When the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year, expect a sharp increase in the cost of everything.  It doesn’t effect one group of people, it effects everyone.  The Obamacare bill has hidden taxes that we’ll start to see very soon, so add that to the list of taxes everyone will have to pay.  The Value Added Tax being talked about will soon be rationalized and reasoned to help pay for an ever increasing government spending.

Get In Line

Unions and Politicians are running headlong into the trap of Socialism and government entitlements.  Where people will hold out their hats for a government handout.  Once that happens, it’s like feeding the stray cat living under your house.  You can’t get rid of it.

Rubbed On Wounds

Butterflies and Rainbows

Work takes me to various places on the Big Island.  Places where you just have to be there, to believe what you’re seeing.  On this day, I was leaving Na’ālehu, and returning back to Hilo.  I was overlooking Na’ālehu town from the upcountry vistas, when I snapped this picture of a butterfly flying over Na’ālehu.

It is kind of a surreal event looking out over Na’ālehu.  It is like a magical hallucinatory dreamlike view that stretches outward towards the coastline.  It is peaceful and quiet on the hilltop, with only the rustling of the wind through the grasslands.   In Hawaiian, the name Na’ālehu means “the volcanic ashes“.  The town is located at the southern most tip of the Big Island of Hawai’i.

With a population of just under 1000 people, Na’ālehu is surrounded by sprawling ranches and a rolling mountainous countryside.  Shaka’s, bar and restaurant, and Hana Hou, restaurant, are the only places to eat in Na’ālehu.  Besides the Punalu’u Bakery.  Da Sweetbread is so Ono’licious!  Pure Hawai’i!

Punalu’u Bakery

On the way there, and home, there’s really no radio reception along the Ka’u highway. Except on the AM band where between KPUA 670 in Hilo, and KHNR 690 in Honolulu, their scratchy static channels fade in an out.  Both are talk radio stations, with the exception of KPUA in Hilo, which is more sports talk, but KPUA does have three marvelous hours of Rush Limbaugh and, an hour with the penis doctor, Dr. Dean Adumbell.  KHNR 690 offers Medved, Preger, and Hewett during the day, and Levin at night.  We don’t get KHNR station’s reception in Hilo very good, but I wish we did.  However, under certain atmospheric conditions, I can get a glimmer of reception of KHNR, when I work on the West side of our Island.  It is, a blessing.  Sometimes the atmospheric conditions are not as favorable enough, and the radio signals are not available at all.  Just static noise.  That just leads to more thinking.  That’s bad,  so I’m told.

Talk Radio, is My Life Line

Big Island Coastline, is my Bliss

So, I begin to start thinking, while driving.  I know, that’s bad.  But thinking, while driving, hasn’t been outlawed yet.  Like either using the cell phone, or texting, or using the lap top computer while driving, thinking is still, not illegal while driving.  Of course, curling our eye lashes, putting on makeup, and reading maps, eating fast food food, drinking a cup of coffee, are also considered distractions while driving.  Not that these activities are not already considered, driving distractions, and illegal.  Thinking is still a luxury.


So, I’m using my brain to rationalize the world we live in now.  Distractions…..  As Obama used to, and still does say….

I’m surprised the Obama hasn’t banned talk radio yet.   Or even any radio listening at all, while driving.  Maybe they are still thinking about it.   There’s that cozy bit of post Roosevelt (FDR) socialism that is still alive in the Fairness Doctrine.  However, when democrats started to flirt with socialism, and abandon conservative ideology, they must remember that….

Roosevelt did Pray

But prayer, is no longer a democratic value, however, and U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb, made sure of that by declaring  A National Day of Prayer, as unconstitutional.

In 1952, then President Harry Truman (D), enacted a National Day of Prayer.

The law currently reads, “The President shall issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.”


In her opinion, Barbara, the body Crabb, wrote that in her view of case law, “government involvement in prayer may be consistent with the establishment clause when the government’s conduct serves a significant secular purpose and is not a ‘call for religious action on the part of citizens,'” citing a high-profile Ten Commandments case, McCreary County, Kentucky v. ACLU.

Can you not, either, be an Atheist, or an Agnostic, and still pray/wish for success?

How does a National Day of Prayer be thought of as a significant religious purpose, and how does it violate the Establishment Clause?  It does not favor any particular religion, groups or individuals.  It doesn’t favor any God, Deity, or crazed bearded bomb throwing nutjobs.  It’s just a Day of Prayer.  Use it as you see fit.  What’s the problem?

Even if you don’t go to a church, a synagogue, a mosque, a temple, a campground, a gymnasium, a cave, or some caldron of boiling faith, the Constitution never prohibits God or Religion.  It just says it cannot make a law, for or against, any religion.

But… Don’t you pray for success?  To return home safely?  To have enough for you, and your family to eat?  For your children’s future?  To your own life?  For Freedom to exercise thereof?

Even if your influences are in nature itself, and the unknown direction of fate.  It must give you a reason for your direction in life.  What are those values that drives your success.  Isn’t that what Prayer is about?  A wish?  An Inspiration?  A Desire?  It’s still your freedom.  Nothing changed.

I suppose May Day will continue to be a democratic value.  Andy Stern, SEIU out going prez and communist, would be proud.  Like his buddy Barry Obama, socialism is much cooler than freedom.  Praying, to anything other than the State, will be forbidden.  You don’t have to believe in anything but the state.

Give me a break.  This is stupid.   It defies common sense.  It defies the very values this country was founded upon.  A Democrat politician enacted this American Tradition, and a Liberal Nutcase Judge outlawed it.  This thinking would declare Easter Egg Hunting on the White House Lawn as Unconstitutional.  Because it has a “religious” connection.  A Christmas Tree in the White House will be banned, because of its “religious” connections.  The Jewish Menorah, because it has “religious” connections.  How about Kwanzaa?  How about converting the Capitol Building into a Mosque.  Where does it stop?

Where does this end?

Hilo Tea Party 2010


Hilo Tea Party was a resounding success.  More than 100 people came to demonstrate their First Amendment Rights and to protest our government’s out of control spending.

The rally took place at the corner of Bishop street and Kamehameha avenue

Our government is out of control.

Our government is spending our money with no regulation.

Our government is creating generational debt.

Our government needs to be STOPPED!

More than 100 people attended the Tea Party.  Lots of drivers honked their horns in support of the cause of freedom.

Young and old, all races and religions, Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians, all came to support the Tea Party.

This mornings Tribune-Herald, Hilo’s newspaper, splashed above the fold “Tea’d Off on Tax Day” headline.  My only gripe with the story the Tribune printed was that the paper said there were only 50 people that attended the rally.  There were more than 100 people lining Kamehameha Avenue.  I suppose math is not a journalism prerequisite.

There were no angry people here.  There were no acts of violence.

Several speakers explained “Who We Are

Peaceful Rally

This morning former President Bill Clinton tried to link the Tea Party people to the Oklahoma City bombing.

“Because of the Internet, there is this vast echo chamber and our advocacy reaches into corners that never would have been possible before,” said Mr. Clinton, who said political messages are now able to reach those who are both “serious and seriously disturbed.”

Mr. Clinton pointed to remarks like those made Thursday by Representative Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican, who when speaking at a Tea Party rally in Washington characterized the Obama administration and Democratic Congress as “the gangster government.”

The Face Of The Angry Mob

We, the people, know when we are being lied to.  Our government has lied to us.  Remember when Bill Clinton lied through his teeth about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

What Clinton has in common with Obama is that they both lie.

Obama Mocks Tea Partiers: ‘You Would Think They’d Be Saying Thank You’!

Obama: “I’ve been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes,” the president said, noting the numerous tax cuts pushed by his administration. “You would think they’d be saying thank you.”

Except, he’s not telling the truth.

The arrogance of this man-child Obama.  But it’s not just the taxes that makes the tea party angry.  It’s the out of control government spending.  The out of control spending that will create great generational debt.  A debt greater than 10 Trillion dollars is unsustainable and dangerous to the health of the country.  The government spending is unsustainable.

With the passage of Obamacare, the health care entitlement, the national debt takes on another program like Social Security and Medicare.  Both programs that are in debt.  These programs are loosing money and are spending more than they are taking in.

Liers, Crooks and Cheats

This Regime is going to drown the American people, their children, and great grand children, with insurmountable debt. Obama openly mocks the American people.  Obama is an elitist snob.  He thinks he know better than the American people.  More government entitlement programs are not the answer.

Today on Rush Limbaugh’s show, Rush sums it up eloquently.

Come November Mr. Obama, you will get that thanks you deserve.

Hear Our Message Obama

Or hear our message come November.  Obama got elected under false pretenses.  He is not a uniter.  Obama is a divider.  The Obama regime has taken over General Motors, now it is Government Motors.  The car company continues to loose money, our taxpayer monies.  Wiping out investors money that had stock in General Motors.

Even if the debt rallies, bondholders will fare the worst, reflecting the restructuring of GM by the Obama administration that favored the union over bondholders despite their similar legal claims. The union is also apt to do better than taxpayers, based on its sweet deal.

Buyers Remorse

Those of you that voted for Obama, what did you think he meant by “Fundamentally Transforming America“?

Bailouts and corporate take-overs.  Trillions of dollars, taxpayer monies, are being wasted away.


Trampling the Constitution.  Taking over, hijacking, private industry.  This isn’t the job of government.  Imposing a requirements to purchase government health care, or get fined.  CZAR’s that fill the cabinet positions without going through a vetting process of approval.  This is Unconstitutional.

To add insult to injury, I get this email from Crazy Mazie Hirono:

What part of this is a Recovery?  You have double digit unemployment.  You have looming inflation.  You have over regulation causing price increases.  What Justice?

Obama is very much like all other democrats.  They are very good at spending other peoples money.  Although, Obama is much worst because his policies are pure socialism.  Our country was founded on Capitalism and the free market principles.  Obama has never run a business.  Obama knows how to destroy business.

Future Direction

This is the face of the Tea Party.  No angry faces.  No shouting.  No violence.  No property damage.  We are law abiding citizens that are very concerned about the direction the Obama regime is taking this country.  European socialist model is not who we are.  Many immigrants, like myself, came to this great country to escape the bonds of socialism servitude.  Natural born citizens have enjoyed the freedoms this country offers.  The future of their children will never know the advantages and opportunities that the Obama regime is taking away.

Obamacare must be repealed.  The damage to our country will be generational.

Dr. Dean Adumbell

Dr. Dean Edell, self proclaimed doctor that spouts enormous stupidity, and nonsense over the radio airwaves.  His rant on Tea Party people today was particularly insulting and derogatory.  Calling Tea Party People, Tea Baggers on his show today, Dr. Dean Ah-dumbo, clinches his place in medical hypocrisy.  This failed excuse for a doctor who once said, “”… didn’t like medicine originally…I kind of found the thing I love the most, which is really the information and communicating the information“.

Much of his information, is misinformation.  In between his rants against Christians, his infatuation with circumcised male genitalia, and his misguided medical advice, he’s about as knowledgeable as an empty paper sack.

Many of the callers to this charlatan’s show asking for medical advice leave without their questions even answered.  Sometimes, he dodges the question all together and goes off on some incoherent rant, much like Obama did trying to answer a question on taxation.

Obviously, his show’s call screen-er sorts out all the penis calls so he can talk about that first on his show.

One caller called in to comment about his tea bagger comment, saying that was a vulgar description of the Tea Party People.  The caller described herself as not a Tea Party person and was not supporting the Tea Party.  Of course, Dr. Dean Adumbell completely feigns knowledge about the term, tea bagger.   He completely dismissed the call and asked how the caller felt about people calling Obama Hitler.  Completely changes the subject.  Much like his medical advice, nonsense.  Want real medical advice?  See a real doctor.  Not someone that pretends to be a doctor.

That’s how this Bozo runs his talk show, he makes claims that either cannot be supported, or are completely false.  Deliberately spreading misinformation.

On one show, he clucked about Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D) claim to have witnessed a UFO.  Then the misinformed doctor of dumbness went on to state Kucinich was a Republican.  Whereas, Kucinich is as loony a liberal as Dr. Edell is.

Actually, Edell reminds me of a slimy used car salesman peddling his brand of bias and prejudice.   People should be aware of this hate monger, and his foolish superior intellectual gibberish he spews on the radio.

Speaking of Tea Parties, ass-hats like Edell could learn a thing or two about what the Tea Parties are about, before smugly dismissing them.

Of Taxes And Tea

‘Apelila (April), 15, 2010.  This is a time of great despair, and of great hope.  This Obama administration is spending our tax dollars faster than they can be taken in.  There are no metrics to effectively measure how our tax dollars are being spent.   There is no accountability within our government.  Federal, State, and County.  No Accountability.

It’s time to consider who it is we are voting for.  Who it is, that passes laws, that takes our money, and spends it.

The House Of Representatives Boils the Tea.

The Senate is the saucer that cools the Tea.

Right now, both the cup and saucer is on the boil.  There is no cooling to settle out what’s best for the country.  The government is one-sided and polarized.  Progressivism, is a term that should mean for the greater good, but it has never been that.  It has been perverted into a disturbing form of liberalism.  It means to control our lives and futures.  Driving us further into socialism.  Total government control.  A government that thinks it knows better than the people that it serves.  What ever happened to Government for the People, By the People?

The Look Of Progressism

The hatred of American Exceptionalism.

The Hatred of Freedom.

The Hatred of the Republic.

The Hatred of Capitalism.

This is how Obama views America.  A nation too rich.  A nation too wealthy.  A nation that needs to be taken down a couple of notches.  A nation that needs to be punished for its success and wealth.  We have to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world, because we stole it.  Is that what you really believe?

Is this the America we want?

Tomorrow the Tea Party protests the over taxation of the American People.

Like It Or Not?

What the Hell does that mean?

A Congress that doesn’t read the bills it passes.  A Congress that exempts itself from the mandates it imposes on the American people.  A government that ignores the will of the people.  This is what we have today.

Hearts Out To Poland

Wishing the people of Poland all the best in this time of tragedy.

We are your Friends.

We Stand with you in your time of grief.

Sowing The Seeds Of Hate

How far do you have to look to see hatred of the Tea Party Patriots?  Not far at all it seems.  These are the same people that called the Tea Party people vile names.  Now they want to infiltrate the Tea Party for the purpose of being a magnet for the Lame Stream Media, as the crazies, they call the Tea Party people.

Seeing Beyond the Self Evident

I saw this story on Fox Nation and jumped to the full article at Canada Free Press, Patriot Alert.

WHO WE ARE, Crash The Tea Party style, is a lesson in Marxism 101: “A nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who are sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes, and morons; who constitute the fake grass-roots movement which calls itself “The Tea Party.”

WHAT WE WANT: To dismantle and demolish the Tea Party by any non-violent means necessary.

HOW WE WILL SUCCEED: By infiltrating the Tea Party itself!  In an effort to propagate their pre-existing propensity for paranoia and suspicion…We have already sat quietly in their meetings, and observed their rallies.”

But the game-plan is Crash the Tea Party’s most ominous part: “We will act on behalf of the Tea Party in ways which exaggerate their least appealing qualities (misspelled protest signs, wild claims in TV interviews, etc.) to further distance them from mainstream America and damage the public’s opinion of them.  We will also use the inside information that we have gained in order to disrupt and derail their plans.”  (Emphasis CFP’s).

So I clicked on the link to and read the enter page, then I clicked on Crash link and navigated to the welcome page.  The first thing I discovered, besides that the site is just a message board, was that many of the posts were much like this one by user flibert47:

When are the Dems going to realize that the majority of the population on the US does not like what the president is doing, what he stands for or the way he has degraded our country to to rest of the world. Take a look at the foreign press, they tell it like it is, they are not in the pocket of the idiots in government. If they had (the idiots) to live under the same laws and constraints that the average person does, things would change for sure. Obama has lied , misrepresented and pushed his personal agenda far beyond what the people can accept.
If the health system can be improved, then improve it, but don’t throw the baby our with the bath water. We have the best health care in the world, fix what is broke and leave the rest alone. It will be alot cheaper too.

I didn’t really go on much past the welcome board, but I found it remarkable.  Then I started to get this message every time I tried to click on the next page to read more comments:

General Error

SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

User ‘madhatter’ has exceeded the ‘max_questions’ resource (current value: 75000) [1226]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

What the hell does this mean?  I quickly google of the phrase “User ‘madhatter’ has exceeded the ‘max_questions’ resource (current value: 75000) [1226]“, and found this.

I left the site for a couple of hours, and when I returned….

Interesting and Despicable.  But wait!  Look at the comments on this site.  Is this a joke?  Several of the blog names are familiar from other blogs.  Comments seem identical to the posters views on other sites.  I’ve got a funny feeling about this site, and it’s not just a Chris Matthews tingle up the leg.

In Hawaiian, bait is called Maunu.  This site is either a joke, or its being bombarded by people who reject the hate message this site is trying to provoke from Tea Party’ers.  I think this site is either some kinda joke or a huge backfire.

Sarah Palin’s Low Favorability Ratings?


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin continues to receive unfavorable ratings from the American public overall, a new CBS News poll shows, though many Republicans do hold a favorable opinion of her.

Polls like this continue to baffle me.  There seems like there a new weekly poll about Sarah Palin’s Favorability and it’s always low.  This doesn’t make any sense.  It seems to defy the popular view of Sarah Palin.

So how does Sarah Palin attract 10’s of thousands of people at Tea Party rallies and other conventions?  How does Sarah Palin have 1,521,842 Facebook fans?  I’m not a Facebook user, but that’s a quite a crowd of fans.  This seems to be contradictory to any of Sarah Palin’s book signings and sales.  If she wasn’t popular, why would anyone buy her book?

So who did CBS poll?

This poll was conducted among a random sample of 858 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone March 29-April 1, 2010. Phone numbers were dialed from random digit dial samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups is higher. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.

858 random adults?  That’s quite a sample.  And were these samples really random?  I’m finding it really hard to believe any of these polls anymore.  What were the specific questions asked?  How come I never get calls from these pollsters?  All these polls say the same things about Sarah Palin.  No one likes her.  She’s unpopular.  Americans find her dimwitted.  Republicans find her divisive.  Democrats call her dangerous.  Independents don’t take her seriously.

You’re trying to convince me that Sarah Palin, who has over a million Facebook admirers, draws tens of thousands at political rallies, yet has a negative favorable ratings amongst the public.  Rubbish, complete rubbish!

As hard as the left desperately tries to convince us by throwing poll after poll in our faces, there’s a larger truth out there.  They LIE!  They make stuff up.  People need to look at the facts.  How can someone like Sarah Palin attract all these people to her message of prosperity, independence, and freedom, be considered unfavorable?

Hey, maybe CBS actually means Crappy Broadcast Standards.  Their polling is crap, like their programming.

Then, there’s this….

Those are my values.
