But i sure do find a lot of articles referring to these so called “polls”. Where are these elusive polls exactly? I want to know! I have lived in San Francisco for approaching 2 decades and have voted in EVERY ELECTION not missing one (i feel or should i start to say felt that it was my civic privilege) and have been in even almost every hard years hard print phone book until they pretty much stopped making them for residential. I have been RIGHT HERE! Where was my opportunity to give my vote? I already did it once officially. They dont seem to want to honor that one. But when you say “the residents of San Francisco have answered the poll on Ross Mirkarimi’s future”, DONT. Because that is not what i feel and it is not what the majority of people i have spoken to around the neighborhood feel (strangers… no… neighbors, but small talk in the checkout line type talk, not talk with my own group of friends who would most likely at the very least know how i feel about this and feel at least some points are valid. These are the people in my little community of Bernal Heights mostly.). I am really sick of these “credible news sources” taking a poll of probably 35 of the people in their own lunch room and say it is how the citizens of SF feel. And then when i take time out to actually search out one of these polls so my voice could be heard with the rest, i can not find a single one!?! INFURIATING!!
It makes me worried about the fate of this beautiful thing that i take advantage of practically every day called FREE SPEECH! First it is the vote of the people to go, then their right to speak out about it! We will be living like they did under Stalin soon at the rate we are going!!
