Well, Which Is It?
According to the media, opposition to the California recall is growing - or it isn't. Compare excerpts from the following two stories:
From the San Jose Mercury News:
Opposition to Calif. Recall Gains in Poll
Now the story on the same poll from Reuters:
Poll Shows Most in Calif. Would Vote to Oust Davis
Is it any wonder many Americans don't trust the mainstream media? What we're really seeing is many voters getting disillusioned with the democratic process, since they now see out-of-control federal judges can wipe away their efforts - and votes - with the stroke of a pen. The Ninth Circus and the ACLU were so concerned with votes that might not be counted, they neglected to mention that the court-imposed delay means absentee ballots already cast could be thrown out if the recall election is delayed.
If I were one of those voters, I'd be looking into the possibility of suing the ACLU for violating MY civil rights and equal treatment since their actions caused my legally-cast vote to be thrown out.
