Another thought for the day

The Cyber Silencing of the Lambs by J

The Jordan Times has a new image
with a little web based opinion poll
Something I like to participate in
to express a view, promote and
ponder, relate and rally;
all on a Saturday, a day of action too.

But what happened this week, with its
"Do you support legislators' rejection of the new traffic law
because it is "too harsh"?


The 'No' button did not respond;
Neither on Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday
Or Thursday.
But on a Friday; a day of rest,
the final day of the voting test.

And meanwhile that 'yes' button was punched
over a thousand times
by week's poll end;
What the ....?
Now that's a harsh reality
As I ponder my vote that never was
today or any other day,
Because today's a Friday, a day of rest.

So relax; the lambs have been
silenced for the week, no fear, it's only a cyber poll.
No meaning, no pulse on the people
as they lay dying on the streets of death;
Because today is
a Friday, a day of rest;

... or mourning.

It might be an honest mistake ...

But because it's a mistake it invalidates the results.

I just don't understand, why do they have to have a holistic new legislation for the law? Why can't it be amended in little pieces. One by one, based on the need

Quite! Totally agree with you Qwaider on the law issue. Take the UK for instance, they have just passed a law that decrees a death caused by someone driving a car whilst on the mobile phone as a 'murder' ...

However on the issue of the poll, let's see if the Jordan Times invalidates the result - and posts it again .... ever hopeful J
