It was at the same numbers several hours ago when I voted.

Got another poll I hope you all will help with. It’s a “contest” for top mommy bloggers. Currently the UBER Liberal blog has the most votes, with the conservative blog in distant second place. Please consider freeping this poll also, and vote for “The Lonely Conservative” blog.

Worked for me. Clear your cookies in Internet Explorer (that will log you out of FR, also) and vote again.

Same thing happened to me. I cut and pasted their response:

" You voted "Yes" to the question "Is the law's health insurance requirement constitutional?""

The people who argue that SS and Medicare prove Bozocare is constitutional don’t know what they are talking about. SS and Medicare are not mandatory, yep, the tax is but the programs themselves are voluntary. If a Senior doesn’t want SS or Medicare he/she won’t be fined for not taking it once he/she retires nor will he/she be jailed. There is the big difference.

If anyone has any FAP (or other vid recording) software.. it would be a GREAT way to expose the “Polls” at WaPo (and other Lib/LSM) site as phonies/propaganda.. NOT balanced ;)

The poll says above it:

Note: Because of a technical glitch, comments on this page originally were not appearing in the “No” column. They have been restored to the proper category. Voting tallies were not impacted.

Funny. I carefully hit NO. The vote count said I voted yes and to comment. Something wicked going on with the compost again.

If the sample is comprised of registered voters who have passed a brief and simple quiz on the constitution (say, what elementary school students were taught about a hundred years ago), then I’ll be much more interested in the results.

If the Supremes allow this monstrosity to stand, I can think of a few other initiatives I would heartily support..

For example, try to pass a law that says anyone who wears black robes and are employed by the taxpayers of this country, and who work within 5 miles of the nation’s congressional building, must either wear pink robes and green wigs or face a fine of $50,000 per year until such time as he/she complies. Further, such individuals must do their work in a circus tent with 3 rings inside and wear clown costumes as they pass down their decisions (or else face another fine of $50,000. per year until such time as he/she complies). Anyone who willingly fails to comply and fails to pay the associated fine(s) will be recognized as a lawbreaker and his/her salary will be reduced to $1 per year until such time as he/she complies.

GRRRRR!!!!!!!!! Where’s the Tylenol???

Same here. I am quite certain I voted “NO”, but the follow-on screen said I voted “Yes”.

Sheesh!
