I just got push polled

The call came at about 7PM, the caller ID showed 202 640 5113.

Would I take few poll questions???

Why yes. Why not I answered, noting that the questioner was a machine.

Who will you vote for State Representative? Will you vote for (name deleted) or Y (name deleted). Press 1 for X and 2 for Y.

I pushed 2, which was for the Republican.

Immediately the machine said...

Are you aware that X voted to dump toxic wastes at... Press 1 for yes, 2 for no.

I pushed 1 for yes because the question was a lie. The vote was to store, not dump.

Then came the question I would never have guessed.

Are you white or black? Press 1 for white, 2 for black, 3 to skip the question.

What the heck, I thought. One lie deserves one in return.

I pressed 2.

"Click" the survey was terminated.

I guess blacks aren't  supposed to vote for Republicans!

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
