Perusing the website for the stinky local fishwrap this morning, I found this article. Yeah, 88 percent of the respondents think the City government is failing big time on homelessness. That is not a shock; the shock is that the morons continue to vote for the morons – the definition of insanity.
The one paragraph that blew my mind, however, was the following:
Results likely would have been more unflattering if officials did not weight the survey responses based on the race of respondents. Responses from the 12 percent of survey takers who declined to state their race were disregarded. Those people were “more likely to feel negatively about the future of Portland,” according to the survey report. They were also more likely to name safety and trust in government as city challenges.
Not only are they blatantly trying to skew their own survey (didn’t do much good), but they’re completely open about their deception!
These are strange times we live in, boys and girls.
