No, please keep starting polls.  Think them through carefully before posting.  Do you have enough options? Have you considered major possibilities?  The results here would look very different if there was an option to get a copy from the library.  When I make a poll I always include options for both sides.  You may feel that defeats your purpose but a poll that says Trump will kill us all, Trump is terrible and could be lethal, Trump is bad and nothing on the other side doesn’t really show anything except that everyone voting hates him. But if it includes a few options on the other side, you get a fuller picture.  It’s actually very difficult to write a good poll.  If anyone can tell your purpose from your question, it’s an Ok poll but not a good one.  The best polls are not left or right, but cover all sides. Then you get a full spectrum of who is voting and you also have a chance for people to listen.  If you look at numbers of votes, people don’t vote much if it’s all one side or the other.  I don’t think you realize C often ran promos for this forum. The point is not to skew a poll, it is to remind people we are here and then maybe they will participate in other discussions and polls.

As an example, look at my Aunt Jemima poll question.  You can’t tell my opinion from the question. In reality even as a child I thought it was racist and was rude to the very kind Black people who were in my life.

For the record I do not have cable tv. On Sundays I watch the one hour political shows produced on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. I also surf Delphi forums but have found that liberal forums have a very rude person on them and no one repremands him so I consider the source and leave. I do not want to involved with a forum where bad manners and profanity are allowed. Can you say you do the same?
As for Bolton, I saw Martha Raddatz of ABC interview him for an hour last night. Did you? I liked him long before he was fired but last night he came across as a wimpy crybaby. I found he is money hungry and waited until his book was published to shoot his mouth off about Trump.

Bolton has a bad temper and offended a lot of people who should have liked him. It isn’t a secret, it’s legendary.

Really? I didn't follow him that closely. I was in disbelief when he started spouting all kinds of bad things about Trump. It made me wonder if the only reason he went to work under him was to write a tell all book.

Wow Cery interesting.I knew him from eksewhere but didn't realize where. I wonder if he is married or is he too crabby to be around?

I heard the interview last night and decided he is like that old saying"the empty barrel makes the most noise". Martha is an experienced interviewer and I think some of her questions and comments made him nervous.

I suggest that comparing the scope of Cheney and Rover to Trump's cabinet is open to a very interesting debate.

I left Barr out of our discussion because his willingness to bend the laws to protect Trump is, to my knowledge, unprecedented.

My thought is Cheney-Rove we're focused on foreign issues t increase US power.  I think most of DTs cabinet is "area" focused.  DeVoss doesn't care what school system other countries use unless they bolster her preferences for private schools.  Barr is the worst if the lot IMPO.  He is the most dangerous- he's well educated, knows the law and how it can be manipulated, isn't afraid to use his power to get what he wants and has resources the others don't.
