What would you rather see? Janet Jackson’s nipple or a newborn baby cooing to his mother?

What would you rather hear? President Obama’s reassurances that everything will be alright or a love song from Taylor Swift.

What would you rather taste?  Lemon juice or whipped cream.

What would you rather smell?  Someone’s body odor or freshly baked bread.

What would you rather touch?  The sharpness of a razor blade or the fur of a kitten.

I’ve just given you a tour of the five human senses which everyone is endowed with, allegedly. Common sense should make the answers to these questions really obvious.  You have just experienced your first poll here at Every Useless Thing.  I can report the following results:

15% of my readers hate cooing babies.
15% of my readers hate Taylor Swift.
85% of my readers hate lemon juice.
15% of my readers love body odor.
85% of my readers hate razor blades.

My poll is just as ridiculous as most of those polls you hear being mentioned on the news all too frequently.  I was recently called by some BS polling outfit who began asking me a series of political questions so slanted and biased I was stunned.  Would you rather die a horrible death or approve Obamacare?Would you rather pay a few more dollars in taxes or see your children die?  Would you rather vote for someone who wants clean air or a Republican?

You get my drift I hope.  Polls are just another way to manipulate the citizenry through biased and rigged questions by alleged experts who we’ve never heard of before and whose qualifications can’t be verified. It’s an easy matter for any of us to create a  fictitious organization, give it an official sounding name, with official business cards and stationary, and release polling information slanted in our specific political direction.  If the Media likes what it hears, the poll will be broadcast on the news for days with the talking heads giving it their support. If they don’t like the results then it’s buried and never seen of heard from again. Since the great majority of media folks are self-proclaimed liberals you can see the problem.

This kind of manipulation was one of the things the fourth estate was to help identify and warn the population about.  That was one of the checks and balances incorporated into our form of government by the Founders.  The Media was to be our unbiased watch dog and protector against governmental abuses. With that protection slowly disappearing we’ve now become vulnerable to a government that wants to control every facet of our lives while the Medias stands by and applauds.

We should be worried because it’s been getting progressively worse every day.

Well it’s election day, aren’t you excited? I don’t think so because I don’t know anybody that is. I’ve listened to talk radio today, local news on both radio and TV, and everybody’s “shoveling it” hard and fast. The liberal stations are telling me that Obama is the man and he’s going to kick Romney’s ass. The conservative stations are saying that Romney is the man and he’s going to kick Obama’s ass.  If I had my druthers I’d like to take them both out behind the woodshed and kick both their asses. 

The last two years has been been unbearable with the constant stream of biased propaganda from everyone under the sun. First off, both candidates should all be arrested for felony Criminal Annoyance and sentenced to 20 years locked in a cell with each other. That just might be what “cruel and unusual” is all about.

I’m not getting too excited until later this evening when the only thing that really matters takes place. The vote count. Everyone’s reciting poll results which are just so much hogwash. The polls always seem to reflect the opinion of the pollster whether liberal or conservative.  If as many people in this country are as tired of the constant polling as  I am, they’ll lie to any pollster just to be ornery. I’ve been polled a number of times by telephone over the last few years and I absolutely lied through my teeth every damn time. The vote is a secret in this country and I’d like to keep the tradition alive. I’m not telling a soul who or what I’m voting for or against, it’s none of their damn business. It’s a freaking secret ballot.

If I have one more person talk to me like I’m a some idiot wrapped in a moron and try to explain to me why the way I want to vote is incorrect, I could be persuaded to violence. So if there’s anyone out there who’s reading this who enjoys making phone calls for candidates and visiting homes to irritate the residents, here’s a little bit of advice. Stay the hell away from my home and don’t think about calling me again.  You’ve spent two years preaching to me and I’m “burned out”.
