    Angry Let's hit this poll & show Anti's we are not the "tiny group" they say we are!

    John posted this in the MI thread.

    Any & all help is welcome.


    Let's Hit This Royal Oaks Poll!!!

    The poll is on the right!

    http://www.freep.com/article/2010081...rts-Beats-Eats

    This article also features one of the most asinine statements I have ever heard from an elected official.

    We agree they have the right to open carry, but leave the festival alone. If they want to carry guns so badly, they should join the Army and go over to Afghanistan. They have a lot of big guns over there.

    Works, now. Thanks.

    On edit: Wouldn't a more intellectually honest way to phrase the question be, "Should people be denied the constitutional right to openly carry a properly holstered handgun at a festival?"

    That might just be the most asinine statement I've ever heard. He has absolutely no idea what a right is.

    Long-time lurker...had to respond to this one. We are still behind 2-1.

    How ironic is it that this story is on page '2A' in the print edition?

    Every time I try to vote the "No" total goes up - even though I'm casting a "Yes" vote. Coincidence? I wonder.

    I also noticed that one may vote as many times as they can get the software to accept the vote - not every time was sucessfully registered. (Hey! At least I learned something from Chicago politics. :>)

    stay safe.

    No mater which way I voted, the "no" vote increased.

    3 yes votes + 1 no vote increased the "no" total by 4.

    You can vote anyway you like, but they will get the results they want and w/o hanging chads.

    Check this out I got their game now - GO get'em Guys:


    They are cheating on the poll! WTF? Free Press can't even set up a fair poll!

    They are SPIKING this poll. I watched their numbers [Anti-2A] jump unrealistically over a short span & figured out what they are doing: I suggest fighting fire with fire.

    Fire Fox web browser
    1. vote
    2. hit Ctrl,Shift, Del. (all at once) [clears cookies]. Then hit enter key.
    3. hit F5 [refreshes/reloads page] so you can click "yes" vote again.
    Repeat - this can be done very quickly! I suggest when in a dirty fight - fight dirty!

    (I watched their #'s jump by 500 votes in less than 20 min. this morning?)

    Frustrating

    There are so many of these stupid polls out there that these online newspapers set up it's not even worth trying to keep up with it. It was already said, the anti's will always get the results they want. I bet if nobody responded at all and there were 10,000 No votes and 0 Yes votes, it would make them look even more ridiculous.

    59%.

    You just had to wait for the general public, who generally love our Constitution, to start trickling in.

    Well, I tested the theory...it seems to be working just fine now...I voted 10 times and it counted every one....

    I don't see the poll anymore. Is it possible they took it down because it showed results contrary to their agenda?

    It's still there; currently at:
    72% - yes
    28% - no
    If you do not test yourself every single day,
    then it is just another wasted day.

    What??

    "We agree they have the right to open carry, but leave the festival alone," he said.

    Well, I agree with his right to free speech but not when I don't agree with what he is saying. (How does that feel? )

    Yes - 72% (5,330 votes)
    No - 28% (2,106 votes)

    Total votes - 7,436

    What the...?

    "...the Royal Oak City Commission voted 4-3 to allow people to carry guns openly at the Ford Arts, Beats & Eats festival over Labor Day weekend."

    Since when does a city commission think it has the right to decide whether or not I choose to exercise my Constitutional rights to self defence?

    I'm glad the measure passed, but if it hadn't, I'd have been there regardless to ensure that mistake was highlighted at the HIGHEST level!

    Looks much better now doesn't it?
