“How do you feel about whether or not the USA should put “boots on the ground” in (whatever enemy country)?” Bye, bye, prospective nominee.

I’ve had enough of “leaders” who vote by poll. My old-time tenet is that people who represent me and have “inside” information, and also probably more knowledge than I do, should have common sense and courage to vote what is good for my country.

Chances are what is good for my country will be good for me. For instance, I think I would like to see a one percent cut across the board for all entitlements. That I say knowing well that my whole financial dependence is on entitlements. But I can’t see how my $1000 cut to $990 will tear up my budget any worse than it is already torn up by an unhealthy economy.

Hopefully the ten bucks will go to some system that will save me that much or more in a growing economy. I will add that I’ll have a fit if it is used to promote some agency who’s goal is to put more money into someone’s party, or upgrade his limousine, or kill babies.

That’s where we need an honest and unbiased media. Then we can know for whom to vote, so we can vote for the people who will represent us. How do we get an unbiased media? That’s a problem when the media is the one who is selecting the media! The only answer I have present is to boycott the special interest media groups—that also includes the universities that are turning out only graduates who fit into their cookie cutters.

Nominees, don’t be so concerned about my wants as about my needs. I need a free country run by people of integrity, good sense, and humility enough to listen to people who know, not to those who want.

Classic example of poor leadership. Poll that asks 18 year old if they believe we should have free colleges and universities! Or to ask the unemployed if we should extend unemployment benefits!

Polls will reflect media, honest or not.

Out and over, Fellow Citizens. 😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    One of the things I’ve learned this past year (or two) is not to trust the media. However, only more recently did I realize that a “poll” done by the media cannot be trusted any more than the media itself.

  2. I haven’t trusted the mainstream media in years. It irritates me no end that their interviews are usually not with experts, but with teenagers and celebrities.

      Many poll where they know they get the answers they want. They are not apt to take a poll of a thousand people in my state – at least if they want gun control! 😀

    After having been a part of the media for 8 years some time ago. Their Motto THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH IS THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. was being compromised long ago when people’s jobs depended on writing what was favourable to the pollies. Many who wondered why I did not accept a cadetship to be a journalist. have learnt to their cost that POLLIES ie even in vital issues like warfare and street violence etc. I would like to know if any motto governs what today is called Media reporting……. There is only pne pure Truth ………Found on THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH…..OUR SAVIOUR GOD> Blessings!

  4. I’m starting to just believe the opposite of whatever I’m told.
