guess you actually have to occasionally answer the
telephone on the off chance it's one of those surveys
that grant an opportunity to combine your opinion with
the opinion of others and contribute to an Opinion Poll.
It was in the early 1990's when I was last asked to
contributed to an Opinion Poll, something about NAFTA.
The questions were so simplistic I had a poor reaction
to being treated like a halfwit and when the survey
taker finally suggested I should just answer the
question with a yes or no I was hung up on. For reasons
that totally escape me I remember the exchange with a
degree of clarity. When I got off the phone, the Artist
had suggested I might like to lie down for a bit.
An Opinion Poll
I'd wish to participate in would contain no question
such as "Do you think NAFTA is a good idea?" with option
of either saying yes or no. However, an Opinion Poll
which first asked how much I knew about NAFTA, where I
got my information about NAFTA from and then suggested I
give a rough précis of how NAFTA would work, that's what
I call a request for an Opinion. But if today I was
asked "Has the former Soviet Union's Comintern finally
discovered the honey pot that produced a bridgehead in
the United States and is that bridgehead the GOP and can
we anticipate another aggressive reach for territory by
the Russian State before the USA's November Midterms and
will there be a pogrom of suspected US assets within
Russian State?" Then the answer is "Very Likely Yes."
