ABQ Free Press First-ever Reader Survey

Filed under: Media, Quizzes / Surveys, Reading — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:58 AM (04:58)

Today, I took the ABQ Free Press First-ever Reader Survey — my answers are in bold type.


ABQ Free Press is now New Mexico’s second-largest newspaper, reaching 100,000 people per issue.

Now, we need to know who you are and what you want us to be.

Why should you take the 3.5 minutes (less if you can actually type) to fill out this survey?

This is your chance to shape the shape of the news and counteract (ahem) some of the other influences in New Mexico. Responses will be chosen weekly to receive a custom mail subscription to ABQ Free Press. Let your voice be heard big time, long time.

  1. Your Name

    Mike

  2. What is your age?

    18 to 24
    25 to 34
    35 to 44
    45 to 54
    55 to 64
    65 to 74
    75 or older

  3. What is your gender?

    Female
    Male

  4. What is the highest level of education you have completed?

    3 years of college

  5. What is your occupation?

    Private security

  6. Address (optional but needed if you want a free trial mail subscription)

    Address
    City/Town
    State/Province
    ZIP/Postal Code
    Email Address

  7. What do you like about us now?

    The ABQ Free Press covers issues that the Albuquerque Journal glosses over or doesn’t really bother with at all.

  8. What you wish we had . . . .

    A regular libertarian columnist

  9. We have too much . . . . .

    “Progressive” “social justice” content. Or at least drop Robert Reich for a local columnist.

  10. We need more . . . . .

    How about a conservative columnist and a libertarian columnist?

I Am “The Antichrist” ?

Filed under: Humor, Life, Quizzes / Surveys — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 5:27 PM (17:27)

Here I thought I was a nice guy. Now apparently I’m the “Anti-Christ.” See for yourself.

This particular “test” might be a bit on the faulty side – isn’t the Anti-Christ supposed to be irresistibly charismatic, thus accruing piles and piles of cash, having plenty of women seeking his attentions, those sorts of things?

I’m waiting.

Your result for The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test . . .

The Antichrist

You scored 60% Pride, 63% Envy, 55% Ambition, and 40% Deceitfulness!

You are the Antichrist, a member of the unholy trinity along with The False Prophet and Satan. In the Bible you are described as the beast with seven heads and ten horns. You have the appearance of a leopard, with the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion (you figure out the symbolism). You are an ambitious individual who is bent on world domination and it is prophesied that you will achieve this goal. You will eventually set up a mighty empire, the greatest empire that the world has ever seen. This empire will be in opposition to God and God’s chosen people (the Jews). Essentially, you will be like a Hitler who actually succeeds, for a time at least. Indeed, you have a lot of other Hitler-like qualities. You are a very prideful person and this probably stems from the fact that you possess real advantages over most other people. You have what it takes to get to the top and the drive to get there. You also possess Hitler’s potential for cruelty. You enjoy watching others suffer, especially your enemies. This is because you view life as a competition. May the strong survive and may they stand proudly on top of the bones of their vanquished foes! Finally, you are very direct with your enemies and friends alike. You feel that it’s good to make your intents known to other people. Some may argue that Hitler was deceptive, but he really wasn’t. If people just read his book, they would have known his ultimate goals and how he felt about the people who stood in opposition to these goals.

Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)

Pride Distribution

You scored 60% on Pride, higher than 69% of your peers.

Envy Distribution

You scored 63% on Envy, higher than 80% of your peers.

Ambition Distribution

You scored 55% on Ambition, higher than 53% of your peers.

Deceitfulness Distribution

You scored 40% on Deceitfulness, higher than 25% of your peers.

upublic.tv Introductory Survey

Filed under: Fun, Media, Quizzes / Surveys, Social Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:01 AM (02:01)

Recently I decided that it’s time to resurrect The Weekly Sedition as a video series or radio show or podcast or whatever – something besides a simple blog.

Since I last produced a show at Channel 27, the station has switched hands, from Quote Unquote to uPublic TV. So recently I stopped by the uPublic offices to see what the signup procedures are – I was told to go to the site, which redirected me to the uPublic meetup.com group. There I had to fill out an introductory survey to join the group. Here are my answers:

Write a short bio

I was a producer at Channel 27 for a few years and am looking to get back into the game. More information is available upon request.

Please answer these questions completely. How did you find out about his group?

UPublic — From the web and another producer.

This meetup — I talked to someone at the 3rd St NW office. He told me to sign up at http://upublicans.com, which redirected to here.

Why do you want to join this group?

To learn how to develop content for Channel 27 and other media outlets, and to “get back in the game.”

How much television program production experience do you have?

About 12 years on Channel 27 through Quote Unquote.

Do you understand that you are required to attend two mandatory classes before getting access to any other resources?

Yes. Quote Unquote has a similar requirement. Most organizations are like that, and the ones that aren’t are asking for trouble.

Besides the two mandatory classes, what other classes would you like to attend?

What’s available, and what are the requirements (costs, prerequisites, etc.) ?

DFA Survey — What’s Most Important in 2013?

Filed under: Politics, Quizzes / Surveys — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:23 AM (00:23)

Recently I received via email a survey from the “left” “liberal” fascist group “Democracy for America.”

Chances are that they don’t actually care about what I think about the various issues – after I clicked the “Submit” button, a page asking me to donate ∅∅∅∅∅ came up. I suspect that’s all they were after all along, and that the “survey” was simply camouflage towards that end – “We care what you think. Give us money.”

Here at Democracy for America, members like you make our work possible — and that means you get to call the shots.

What are your top priorities for this year? What issues matter most to you? What candidates in your area should we endorse?

As we work to change our country and the Democratic party from the bottom-up, it’s important we hear from you — that’s what being people-powered is all about.

Please, take a moment and share your thoughts.

What is the most important issue to you right now?

Civil Liberties

If your top issue is not listed above, please tell us about it here.

Repealing and overturning unnecessary laws, stopping new bad laws from getting enacted in the first place

Is there a candidate in your area that we should know about?

Maybe Gary Johnson?

What other issues are you following right now? [My choices in boldface – MWB]

Big Business
Budget and Taxes
Campaign Finance Reform
Civil Liberties
Economy and Jobs
Education
Elections
Environment
Gun Safety
Health Care
Immigration
Labor and Unions
LGBT Rights
Medicare
Net Neutrality and Internet Freedom
Privacy
Social Security
Veterans
Voting Rights
War and Peace
Women’s Rights

What state do you live in?

New Mexico

Is there anything else you’d like to share about the issues or elections you’re following in 2013?

How about the Democratic Party’s elected officials start repealing some laws for a change, and lessen the burden of government upon the rest of us?

Protecting the individual right to own and carry military-pattern weapons as is supposed to be protected by the Second Amendment is a big issue for me personally. The more likely a candidate is to support repealing the National Firearms Act of 1934, the more likely that candidate will get my support.
