A Very Un-Scientific Survey

I want to know more about you, dear readers, and what burning (or at least piping-hot) issues tumble through your thoughts. Back in Ye Olde Radio Days, I used to conduct what I called a Very Un-Scientific Survey and today this event lands smack dab in the middle of your Cup of Joe.
Answer as many or as few as you wish - if you want to explain your answer go ahead and do so or just add your comment and go about your business.

Remember - This is Very Un-Scientific.

Questions For Readers:

1. On a scale of One to Ten, with One being lowest and Ten being highest, what score would you give the changes and reform in TennCare or Medicare?

2. Which issue would you say should be the top priority for state government funding - Education or Health Care or another issue?

3. Again on a scale of One to Ten, what score would you give the success of President Bush in leading the country?

4. Name at least three politicians, state or national, under ethics or criminal investigation. Is this normal, abnormal or unheard of?

5. Where do you get most of your news/information - Television, Internet, Radio, Newspapers, Friends, Blogs, etc etc.

6. What news story or recent information you've read and or heard in the last month made you angry?

7. What story made you happy?

8. What has been the best movie you've seen this year?

9. What has been the best music you've heard this year?

10. If you were fortunate enough to have a Thanksgiving feast with friends or family, what food made you happiest to eat?

Okay, that's it. That wasn't too bad, was it? I may try this type of survey again or I may not, depending on what you, dear readers, tell me.

    I'd give it a score of 1
    2. Which issue would you say should be the top priority for state government funding - Education or Health Care or another issue?
    Right now, Health Care. But Education is a very close second.

    Since I can't give him a Zero, I'll have to say 1.

  3. 1. one
    2. Health Care - we live in the richest nation in the world - everyone here should have health care.
    3. Can we give it a negative score... what is negative infinity times negative infinity - or does a negative times a negative make a positive - lets just say he sucks ass big time.
    4. Can I name three that aren't?? Uhhh,, searching, searching.. get back to ya on that one.
    5. NPR and the cupofjoe powell blog and the Tennessee Jed blog and the cherokeesagewoman blog
    6. The lack of true judicial response/getting the guys all the way to the top, you know who you are,, and the lack of public outrage at another scandal that has been outed of the Bush admin.
    MY second answer would be my brother gave out green walnuts to tricker treaters at halloween he thought were too old to trick or treat. I'm not kidding. Now, that is kinda funny too.

    The secularist are trying to do away with the word Christmas in all public displays,advertisments,publications,and references saying that it is discreminatory to other religions and atheist. That is why you are seeing CHRISTMAS trees called holiday trees, and retail employees wishing you Happy Holidays etc. However thanks to some mainstream media people, the christians are begining to strike back, and defying this total stupid movement.It is completely ludocrus to allow so few to control the wishes of the masses.
