Please Don't Shoot the Pollster

Exactly. I use caller ID and voice message recording to screen out calls from folks I don't know or don't care to talk to. I suspect that at least some of those unanswered calls were from pollsters.
I don't think kids are even taught handwriting anymore. It seems modern educators want to jam a computer in front of kids as soon as possible.

Navy to Pull Bibles from Hotels on Bases

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." I'm having a hard time figuring out how leaving a bible in a hotel room violates this. Maybe you can explain it.

What a silly attitude. Apparently you think that a copy of the Bible tucked away in a drawer nearby that you can choose to ignore is the same as having religious beliefs forced on you. I've stayed in scores of hotel rooms with Bibles in the nightstands, and I don't feel in the slightest bit that I had someone's beliefs forced on me. There could be a Koran or some goofy works by L. Ron Hubbard in there as well for all I care, no difference.
Sure, handy, sure.... lol! Idiot.
Michael Medved has pointed out that, unlike the UK where the head of state (the Queen) and the head of government (the prime minister) are two separate functions, the US places both functions in the presidency. He points out that Obama likes being the head of state, but has little interest in being the head of government. I agree with Medved. Obama likes all the trappings of office, the schmoozing with celebrities and foreign dignitaries, the vacations, flying around in Air Force One, etc, but when it comes to the actual business of the presidency, not so much. That's like real work, and if everyone would just do what he wants, well, then everything would be just wonderful.
"And so when we talk about...Republicans who want to ban equal pay for equal work …" In other words, when we just make up crp, "that's where the power is."
