Deport Them. Enforce The Law!
The far reich wing Christian Science Monitor has a round up page for immigration matters. The page contains several links to boo-hoo stories about tasty, delicious illegal immigrants, several primarily pro-illegal immigration quotes from their readers and a poll. Uh-oh, quick Hannitized avert your eyes, because as with most polls not conducted by "Polling Professionals" it has a most surprising result, well, surprising if you're Hannitized or an elite haircut. In fact I'd say this result is fairly typical when the issue is set before the people without filters...
Deport them. Enforce the law! My god I just sprouted some true wood! Now this is some language I can get behind and judging from the poll results I'm not alone in that feeling.
Hannitized? You doing okay over there buddy? Take deep breaths it will all be okay Tiger!
So this is probably an freak, a one off, never happen again, right?
Not so much, some shocking examples follow, so if you're of a delicate constitution please consider quickly clicking away from this horrible, horrible blog as we provide links to such reich wing outfits as AOL, heh!
Just A Little More Poll Action!
in a survey released this week by Del. Steve Landes, R-Weyers Cave. More than 1,650 constituents in the 25th House District completed the 21-question survey. 94 percent do not believe illegal aliens should be eligible to receive taxpayer supported in-state tuition rates at Virginia's public colleges and universities. 93 percent favor penalizing businesses that knowingly hire illegal aliens. 92 percent support allowing state troopers and local police officers in Virginia to detain and hold illegal aliens for deportation when they are pulled over for a traffic violation or arrested for another crime.
Poll opposes immigrant amnesty
Readers responding to an online poll oppose amnesty for illegal aliens by a margin of more than 6 to 1.
"Should illegal aliens be given amnesty?" the four-day poll asked at www.decaturdaily.com. It ended Wednesday.
A total of 303 (86.1 percent) answered no, and 49 answered yes.
"Secure our borders, whatever it takes," reader Pamela Milligan of Decatur wrote in an e-mail. "President Bush has asked, 'How are we going to deport 20 million people?' I say respectfully, Mr. President, one at a time!"

I could go on but I think you get the point. Sorry to throw these all up here and force you to read! On a blog no less, but I don't think folks click through to the provided links and I wanted you to see what I was talking about.
Yes, the "professional polls" do seem to come up with very different answers, doesn't that seem odd to anyone else? What if online polls are much more representative? It is possible you know. I wonder if "professional pollsters" might have any incentive to make us think that we require their arcane arts?
Especially when one notes the glaring differences between the findings, I tend to think one thing in favor of the impersonal online poll is the "make nice factor." Most folks when they're on the phone with a living breathing pollster are more apt to say what they think the pollster wants to hear, or at the very least less likely to speak in an uninhibited manner.
In even more words it's pretty unlikely they'll talk up my concept of draping the bullet shredded bodies of foreign national drug dealers over the shiny new border fence. Probably not, sigh.
You see the same thing with comments, but I do think that is different and that self selection most likely plays more of a role in that as it requires more than a quick click.
Anywho, yet another poll that appears on the surface to stand CW on its pointy little head, what do you know about that?
