Re: Poll: Giving advice is easy

Here's some advice re. poll-making on The Fool: people should only be able to pick a single choice have one choice that applies to them.

So, for example, an effective poll (meaning one that actually yields a result) might be:

Re: I Heard Bernie Say It!

Incidentally, Mexico used the soda tax very effectively, raising the tax on soda to about a peso a liter, and reducing consumption by about 12%--along with costs to health care....

Re: 4 men, 4 different incomes, 2 different mind

Re: 4 men, 4 different incomes, 2 different mind

It wouldn't have been much more of a stretch to slide some stuff in there about inflation rates, return on investment, how cash loses value if inflation exceeds your compound interest, etc.

Uh... that was my point.

Re: 4 men, 4 different incomes, 2 different mind

I don't understand this complaint. We manage to teach home ec without bringing in the teachers from General Foods, and in shop class I don't recall the Home Depot rep making an appearance.

Re: 4 men, 4 different incomes, 2 different mind


I think that teaching these sorts of things in school is critical to trying to help fight poverty - and should be integral to the progressive platform.

Re: 4 men, 4 different incomes, 2 different mind

Re: Many Don't Enjoy Retirement...

Bottom line is that I'm not worried about having too much time. I'm worried about not having enough.
