This silly thing appears to have been circulating the web - picked it up from filkertom.

1. Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as The Controversial Survey?
What do you think?

2. Would you do meth if it was legal?
No.

3. Abortion: for or against it?
Neither for nor against - sometimes it's necessary, sometimes it's not, in either case it's got to be up to the folks most conversant with the situation; the woman and her doctor.

4. Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
It's seen several already and hasn't done so. If you mean of the USA, no, internal plumbing has nothing to do with running the country.

5. Do you believe in the death penalty?
Yes, I've seen it. Don't think much of it on the whole, though there have been some cases where nothing else really seems... adequate.

6. Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Yes. This has gotten beyond silly, and real people are being hurt.

7. Are you for or against premarital sex?
Having been married for the last 30 years, I prefer the marital variety.

8. Do you believe in God?
Yes. Am glad He believes in me, too.

9. Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Sure. In fact it IS legal in my state at the moment. And despite all the hysteria, all it means is that same sex couples can get marriage licenses. Says nothing about non-governmental employees being required to perform the ceremony, or otherwise. Or all the other BS they're strewing the airwaves with these days (ah well.. 7 days to go).

10. Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
Yeah, we really do need to fix the immigration rules so that decent folk looking for a break should be able to come here without the current legality hassle, making it easier to keep an eye out for the crooks. We'd have a lot more trouble with aging of the population were younger people not willing to move here from elsewhere.

11. A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?
At first glance, a pregnant 11/12 year old sounds like reason for abortion, but I guess a rape victim does have the right to make her own decisions on the subject. Though in this case I sure hope the rapist was not a parent or guardian, and the kid has someone to take care of HER. This sort of thing is going to create a good deal of trauma, physical and psychological.

12. Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
No idea actually.

13. Should the war in Iraq be called off?
Yes.

14. Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
I agree that it's illegal in some states, legal in others. Sounds like another of those things that should be up to the individual.

15. Do you believe in spanking your children?
Beating no, the occasional whap on the rump, yes, leastwise until they're old enough for verbal admonition. Doesn't seem to have done my now-adult kid (who reads this LJ and should feel free to comment) any harm.

16. Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
Sure, though if you ask your local American Legion or Boy Scout chapter you can probably get it done for free. This is how old flags are disposed of, after all. Except for plastic ones, from what I'm told, probably because this puts crud in the air.

17. Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?
Obama.

18. Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
Knock yourself out.

So how does one properly dispose of a plastic flag?

It is properly disposed by burning it.

How do you properly burn a plastic flag, given that it contains things that should not go into the atmosphere? I'd like an answer to that one myself, as over the years I've been presented with rather a lot of them by the local real estate agents, some of which are a tad ratty by now. I was told by someone who has done so as a member one of the veterans organizations iirc, that the burning ceremony is for cloth flags ONLY.

I've answered it and left it on my LJ page as well.

Yup. I've been horribly scarred for life. I will never get over the mental anguish of having been punished for doing dumb stuff.

Actually, America already had a female president. Her name was Hillary. You know she was pulling all the strings!
