The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Strawberry Poll

In this past Sunday's Albuquerque Journal,  the paper reported the results of a mayoral poll as conducted by Research & Polling, Inc.

The results of the the paper's poll were splashed all over the Sunday paper and they showed that their poll found of the 402 "likely voters" contacted by phone: 63% were for Berry, 18% for Dinelli, 2% for Heh, and 17% refusing to answer.

The paper promoted this poll as a scientific sampling of voters. But the paper obviously omits some serious facts. It does not reveal that the script used in the calls positions Berry as not just another candidate but the person to beat. And after seating Berry in a sitting-must-be-removed position, the poll then asks voters:

"If the election for mayor were held today, and the candidates were Richard J. Berry, Pete Dinelli, and Paul J. Heh, who would you vote for?”
With the seed already planted in the the respondent's mind, the poll then moves in with a questions to reinforce what it has already planted.

So we at the Eye are actually surprised that the paper's poll didn't show Berry at over 80% After all, if not for Berry, much of what we call as our paper would be gone.

You see, over the last few years, under the failed leadership of RJ Berry, the Albuquerque Journal, has reaped hundred's of thousands of dollars in ad revenue. Our Eyes tell us:

2010: $586,501.82
2011: $419,985.07
2012: $662,792.29

 

That's over $1.5 Million in ad revenue for a paper that, let's be honest, has died and is merely positioning itself to be bought. $1.5 Million in ad revenue makes the  City of Albuquerque one of the largest accounts held by Lang and Walz's dying paper. Would they do anything to upset what they already have? Obviously not.
So folks, the million dollar question is, would the Albuquerque Journal actually contract a poll taker to do an honest and objective poll knowing that the results are not in their interest?

Of course not.

That is why Berry's camp has been on the ultra offensive against Mr. Dinelli. If he were truly at 63%, the last thing he would do, is just what he's done for the last 3 1/2 years: Anything.

Our Eyes from within Berry's camp (yes you read that correctly) tell us that not only does a true poll show that Berry is below the required 50%, but that he is terrified of the upcoming debates.
So enjoy your local version of Pravada comrade RJ, you are going to feel the bitter stinging pill that only scrutiny delivers.

And Mr. Sanderoff, saying that the "Berry Administration has been free of any scandals" is like saying we've been living in prosperity here in Albuquerque.....

The "Berry admin has been free of any scandals", Berry says APD has no, none, zero crooked cops,and everything is going along peachy(how can he say that about a force that is at once so crooked, and hates him so vehemently?!) It's like a bad movie scene, that sort of retarded statement! I'm just waiting for these feel-good,sing-song, our-government-is-filled-with-noble-spirits assholes to wake up and act more like people with IQs' of 120 than retarded clams who long ago walked into a corner and got stuck, so we can take a stab at fixing our mess....

I got called in that survey last week. It was on my landline. Only old farts like myself use landlines. This could also be a reason RJ scored so big. And no - I didn't choose Berry.

I have a question for one of the eye people, preferable a person who works for animal control. Is it legal for Mr. Walz to own or possess a ferengi? Does it require any certain types of permits? How trainable and controllable is a ferengi? Does the licensing require inter-space consent from Star Fleet Command? Does making a ferengi fix a poll constitute as abuse of an animal??? I don't know; this is all very confusing...The resemblance is uncanny!!!

The average IQ of a police officer, Nationwide, is only 100. There are no officers with an IQ near 120 in ABQ. They all left a long time ago, or were forced to leave, because they spoke against a crooked regime and its dictator shultz.

Mister 8:26,
I am not an Eye worker, nor am I on contract with the Eye. I do support the Eye and believe it is the best thing to happen for free speech along with the worst thing to happen to this corrupt administration. Now please bear with me whilst I digress. I will try to answer your questions in order and add any further information I think may be crucial to your education in Ferengi 101. Mister Walz can not own a Ferengi! No way, no how. IT IS ILLEGAL. The goddamn ugly things haven't even been classified yet. We don't know if they are house trained or if they even can be. They may just shit on the floor for all we know. who wants Ferengi shit everywhere. Didn't we just have enough of it in the Urinal? Oops Uh, I mean Journal? No known permits exist, but as we all know they are probably making one up as we talk about this. Isn't that what this administration does? Make up the rules as they go along? Soon every asshole who wants to be famous will own a fucking Ferengi! The shit will be out of control. Will it rain today? Just ask the Ferengi! Will I win the lotto? Just ask the Ferengi! Should I shave my balls? Just ask the Ferengi! What are the odds on this horse race? Just ask the Ferengi!
Honey, does this dress make my ass look fat? Just ask the fucking Ferengi, for Christ sake....
Ya feelin me here? Though I don't believe in Ferengi ownership, I do believe they are highly trainable and even more controllable. All you have to do is let him hob nob around with the so called big wig shitheads, let him think he is important, and be BFFs with the person he thinks will come out on top, and you will have the Ferengi eating out of your mitts. Oh yea, Tell him he is pretty and never ever let him catch you staring at those ears. He fucking hates that! Controlling a Ferengi is easy once you have completed the above steps, then reassures them that they will be powerful,their looks don't matter and they will have powerful influence. Also, don't remind them of their awkward childhood. After all this, all you have to do is tell the Ferengi what you want him to say to people about you, and he will do it. There is no inter-space Star Fleet command. That shit is only for imbecil cops called Darth Lingus, who dress up and collect Star Wars figures. As far as having a Ferengi fix a poll; you have to remember, Ferengis are "anal"ysts. This means that they probe in true alien fashion. Don't forget that. You know what that means? Do you remember when they found those dead bulls out on the ranches with their hineys poked, and their guts cut out. You know what those aliens found?
BULLSHIT! Just like this bought and paid for Ferengi. Ferengis can be bought and paid especially if they've had their feelings hurt and have a boo boo ego.

Good luck to you...with the Pete "pendejo" Dinelli ads that say...hey, I'm and Obama loving socialist...and I want to be your mayor.

I was not called in reference to the latest phone poll, but I have been bothered twice now by a prerecorded call by none other than Mayor Berry asking if I would assist with his bid for reelection. I selected the NO option each time. I also was called on my land line and will no longer be answering the phone until after the election. The calls are from a private number and are annoying. Heh has my vote.

Do you even know what you are talking about? I got this poll and it didn't say anything about Berry being the person to beat. It just asked who you would vote for if the election were held today. There was no discussion of Berry prior to the question at all. And "likely" voters is a very typical way to poll people for a mayoral race. That's what most polls have historically done. Why do we care about who people would vote for if they don't turn out to vote anyway?

Also - if you want to rag on something for not being scientific research, let's talk about your numbers on money spent with the Journal. 1) Does that include spending on the legal announcements the City is REQUIRED to post by law? Things such as foreclosures, lawsuits against individuals, etc? Also, for comparison purposes, how much was spent under previous administrations? I bet that the spending was approximately the same under Chavez. It's not like the City under a conservative mayor is spending tons of money on plain advertising. Maybe for City-fest or the Run for the Zoo, but those would be advertised regardless of who is mayor. Get a grip.

Who are you fooling? Anyone with an IQ of 120 wouldn't be settling for 50K a year! If you did, you're an idiot with an IQ of 120!

More Ferengi shit in the Journal today! What a crock. Now that asshat thinks that 402 people makes up a cross section of what is going to happen come election time. This analyst is nothing but a propagandist for the journal and berry.

WHEN WILL THE FERENGI SHIT END WITH THE JOURNAL? hOW MANY QUESTIONS DID THIS CLOWN ASK IN THAT WORTHLESS POLL. FOR CHRIST SAKE, IS THIS ALL THE JOURNAL HAS? A NEW POLL QUESTION AS FRONT PAGE NEWS FOR EACH DAY OF TEH WEEK?

How's this for a loaded question Ferenghi Sanderson:

“Do you support or oppose the city’s general proposal to increase access to the Rio Grande and the bosque, by adding things such as path trails, pedestrian bridges, boardwalks and viewing platforms?”

Try asking the mayoral question the same way:

"If the election were held today, who would you vote for Berry, Heh, or Dinelli knowing that Berry has destroyed the police department, fucked the city's economy up, and wants to turn the Bosque over to Walmart?"
