80% in a poll says they are either no better off than four years ago or about the same. There’s a shining endorsement.
But some say “nah nah nah nah nah nah nah” with their fingers in their ears. People like Harry Reid, W(hinger)-NV. He’s just given birth to a whole new party of clueless people in painful denial. He’s like an Occupier with a suit. I hope that the internet sags under the number of times he’s quoted a poll.
“I’m not much of a pollster guy. As everyone knows, there isn’t a poll in America that had me having any chance of being re-elected, but I got re-elected,” he told TheDC.
“I think this poll is so meaningless. It is trying to give the American people an idea of what 300 million people feel by testing several hundred people. I think the poll is flawed in so many different ways including a way that questions were asked. I don’t believe in polls generally and specifically not in this one.” http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/13/reid-poll-finding-80-percent-of-americans-not-better-off-so-meaningless
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday pointed to the results of a new poll in arguing that House Republican leaders “can’t let the tea party call the shots” in ongoing negotiations over funding the federal government. – http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/2chambers/post/reid-the-country-doesnt-care-much-about-the-tea-party/2011/03/30/AFkYeZ2B_blog.html
I WONder where the dissatisfaction is coming from?
Yes, the news is in – Tide, as in the soap, is a hot item across the country.
“We sent in an informant to buy drugs. The dealer said, ‘I don’t have drugs, but I could sell you 15 bottles of Tide,’ ” Sprague told The Daily. “Upstairs in the drug dealer’s bedroom was about 14 bottles of Tide laundry soap. We think [users] are trading it for drugs.”
Police in Gresham, Ore., said most Tide theft is perpetrated by “users feeding their habit.”
“They’ll do it right in front of a cop car — buying heroin or methamphetamine with Tide,” said Detective Rick Blake of the Gresham Police Department. “We would see people walking down the road with six, seven bottles of Tide. They were so blatant about it.”
Lots of euphemisms now sound even weirder. “Bath salts”, “Crystal”, “getting clean”, etc.
Surf’s up, dudes.
I’m going to sit and wait for someone to notice something about these last few paragraphs. If no one says anything I will conclude that Cruel Wife is right and I am indeed “A Sheldon”. That’s painfully blunt talk, there, and we use it to mean “Yeah, technically smart but functionally as dumb as a bag of hammers”. I am pretty sure she wasn’t implying “genius” in any way, shape, or form.
“Cruel Wife” fits.
I don’t know if you guys are Star Wars fans, but I thought Episode I (with Jar-Jar Binks) was some kind of obscene and cruel joke with no punchline.
Where Mitchell’s link leads, the guy makes a great argument for mixing up the order entirely and never watching Ep. I again. And he makes sense!
If I can save just one child from that perversion named Jar-Jar, a lifetime of letter-writing to pass this information on will be worth it.
