    I mean, I don't think they do. But that's just me. I can use any of these things. Love Facebook, Wikipedia and Youtube though.

    I wonder where does SodaHead fit in all of this though.

    My beliefs influence both how I vote and which web sites I frequent. Everyone else would be the same. Stupid poll is stupid.

    It says I use this site allot; I will take the time to give feedback on good and bad polls. Without bad feedback crap polls will increase.

    No I think it shows you like to run people down.

    "Stupid poll is stupid." is not feedback, it's a cheap insult.

    Any fool can issue a cheap insult.

    If I like to run people down I would not have provided my own opinion first.

    To go into unnecessary detail; my opinion was this poll would be answered the same by any person based on the logic presented, thus it is a stupid poll as it fails at the very fundamentals of what makes a poll...choice.

    How's that for more constructive criticism. I honestly didn't think it needed to be made that clear but happy to further validate for those who need it.

    I study both sides to get a grasp of where we are headed. What I find interesting is that there is news that I hear that never sees the light of day on the other side. That is, unless, it boils up and they have to backpeddle. I find that there is a lot of censorship in certain areas and too much information released about incidents that should be kept quiet. This brings me to believe that if certain information is classified and, if it will present a favorable "Ah Ha" moment, it will be released and hang the consequences.

    I can't believe that someone put 'yes'...Freedom of will is everything we humans have...it would be a shame to destroy it...If someone likes news, porn, movies, fun, books, debates, social Internet that is his/her choice, not someone elses, especially goverments or similar...

    It's that kind of taboo that has kept us ignorant of the political situation here and around the world. It's taboo to talk about something that could completely change your future? That's insane.

    since i was a kid I've always thought of your ballot as being secretive, or at least a right to secrecy. back when there were curtained booths that you walked into instead of side shields and tagging along with my mom to the ballots. nowadays people point their finger at other people about how they vote and some think they can tell 100% what a person votes by the amount of kids they have or their belief system. people are also under the assumption that its all black and white (not racial, i mean democrat or republican). People are also under the assumption that all liberals are bad (and I'm not saying i am one I'm just saying thats broad because so many people aren't to one extreme or the other). I worked at a steel plant with a hard core (a$$hole) republican who scunched his forehead up and stuck his nose up at everyone like he was the only one doing it right and blared his anti gay propaganda over his personal radio and dogged democrats and liberals like they only came in one color (not racially-i use the word color alot to describe type-). in short the guy was about as enjoyable to share an office with as nails to a chalkboard.

    Im not against politics but i don't believe that they are black or white (though they are for some people who make their choices by them alone) and I get sick of judgment on an entire class of people because of it. I come online or visit with friends at the poker table for fun. not to get stressed out over who's gonna be the next president or vice president because frankly, beyond my secret vote, theres nothing i can do about it. and yes. i am very long winded.

    books, music, art, hobbies, cars.... there are a a number of things in the world to talk about outside of politics but it seems thats all some people ever want to talk about. they can pull it out of anything too. "hey george, can you pass me one of those oranges", george passes the orange and says "dam*n liberals are gonna sink this country"....
    gotta enjoy life on this earth because its not gonna be here forever. hell, it may not be here another ten years. i never see a person happy talking about politics unless its some nimrod happy because he's busting somebodies chops.
    heck what i love is those people you run into (my ex coworker was one of those big time) that you downright tell them you don't want to talk politics and they just keep on slamming them into your ear. I got to hear about how he felt about this and that and how God felt about this and that and I wanted to go "hey, I wonder how God felt about you balling that other woman after your wife had your baby". People get self righteous and they get into other peoples business.

    Well, I don't. They go by the spin they see on HuffPo. Rather than get my news from one source I get my news from many.
