I love making the AFA retract their polls because they didn't get the results they wanted. Now they're blaming the gay marriage poll results on automated scripts. *facepalms* They just can't accept everyone isn't as bigoted as they are. Go show them otherwise.

Bwahaha! Even Nader's ahead of Bush!

hahaha, that's pretty sad - that even nader is ahead of bush. of course, when it doesn't go their way the information must be biased, false and hacked - but not when the results are in their favor.

Those are some pretty crazy results, though, when you think about it, and seem to be at odds with other American poll results. Perhaps they're not entirely off the track when they claim the results were skewed...either that or the regular visitors of the American Family Association are a lot less conservative than the general American populace...which would be..well, odd.

The AFA is ultraconservative. I think they garnered a lot of animosity with the gay marriage stunt they pulled. It's their own fault, truly. When the majority voted in favour of gay marriage, they took down the poll and pretty much said that they weren't going to present the results to Congress as they had planned because the results didn't come out how they wanted them to.

So now everyone who voted on the first poll is going to vote to spite them in all the new polls they put out.

And I'm still not convinced the so called official-media polls are correct either. The media sold out long ago.

Yeah...that definitely smacks of hypocrisy..and I'd guess even from the name alone that the aFA was an ultra-conservative organization.

But...90 something percent???? Yeah, the media has certainly sold out, though I honestly don't get too many mainstream American perspectives over here...of course I could look online..but we're not so saturated with the CHristian/family values/gung ho attitudes up here in Cannuckistan. But still...I'm pretty sure that a great many Americans do support Bush...they're not hiding in the woodwork, and although I am not sure I'd say that the Anti-bush crowd is the minority, I still think the race would be pretty damn close.

Polls aren't to be taken as fact either way. The only poll that counts is the general election (and don't get me started on the electoral college, or on how they rigged 2000).

I dream of moving to Cannuckistan. *snerk* I definitely will if Bush gets a second term.

Oh yeah..I'm definitely not a proponent of statistics or polls...but they are good for a sounding at least, if not to be quoted as factual evidence.

I'm looking at this AFA site right now. God damn, it's almost funny, but depressingly serious. "thank the president for taking a stand for marriage!"..psha.

Cannuckistan...I like this country...I just wish we were a little more proactive. Free trade with our AMerican neighbours has also damaged us a lot, I think. And yes...you should move here, by all means!

Holy shit, they're even praising Oliver North on this site.

I need to stop reading and start working. hahahaG
Mar. 10th, 2004 12:54 pm (UTC)
Proactive in what sense?

Yeah, reading shitty fundie sites can be hazardous to your health. *lol*

Well, as an example...the state of California owes British COlumbia millions of dollars in hydroelectric costs...money that would no doubt help the province out immensely. But do we demand that they pay up? Of course not: they're our American buddies, after all. Their beer may be 90% feces but we let them open their stores, their fast-food chains, sell their products here, without imposing any tarifs whatsoever. Of course this works both ways, but how many Canadian businesses do you think are running effectively in the States? Not too goddamned many, and I've been to the US enough times to be sure. Then ther'es the whole softwood lumber business...we should be completely incensed about this, and some people are..but at the very least we should be cracking down on those American imports that flood our market, and encouraging Canadian business to make better headway. Oh, and then there's the fact that our country can't even instigate drug laws without asking our neighbours whether they think it's ok for us to do it...and sitting on the fence with regard to the Iraq war, even though certain ministers were obviously pretty vocal in their opposition of it, sending no troops and then whining about how Canadian interests aren't being taken into account in the rebuilding scheme...bollocks to all of it, I say. at least if you're going to take a stand on an issue, take it all the way, and then don't start complaining when the spoils don't go to you in the end.

Hehe..hazardous to health..yeah, and probably my job too. Though not as hazardous as the un-PC somethingawful.com and metal sites I visit. lol

Somethingawful is funny at times.

And to play devil's advocate, it's not always wise to demand things from the US, especially not the Bush administration. I say wait for Kerry to take office and see how it goes. The sad truth is that the US seems to think they own the entire continent (if not the world) so Canada's just unlucky to share a border.

Maybe what you need is a few good loudmouthed Americans to move to Canada and get people riled up. :) Hey, I could do that. *lol*

Somethingawful.com is really on, when they're on, if you know what I mean. There was one update a few weeks back that I thought was particularly lame..something about Chubaka running for president or something...but mostly I quite like them.

Yeah, I suppose you are right..but I think if the US were to slap Canada too hard for unjustifiable reasons, they'd really end up having to listen to the resulting global outcry. Or maybe not. Who knows. heh

Yes..yes, that is precisely what we need...some less passive individuals all round, people who can make stuff happen. There's so much damn apathy..maybe (probably) this is a global phenomenon, but it seems so strong here for some reason. Maybe though that's just my imagination.
Mar. 12th, 2004 06:43 am (UTC)
I think to a large extent it is global. But there's all kinds in all countries. It's just a question of who's the loudest.
Mar. 10th, 2004 12:41 pm (UTC)
But I'm definitely going to be taking part in these polls now. hahah.
Mar. 10th, 2004 04:58 pm (UTC)
yeah the AFA is quite odd.
but i'd say those poll results look a little fishy though.
but if they aren't skewed then hey, that's wonderful!

odd thing: i got an email from the AFA
then it wouldn't allow me to unsubscribe... -.-;
