No other future Supreme Court or any court is allowed to use Bush v Gore as precedent. Bush is truly an illegitimate President. http://tinyurl.com/2ps3e3
George W. Bush's January 20, 2001 inauguration was unconstitutional. This isn't because Bush lost the popular vote. Nor is it because he lost Florida and thus the electoral vote. The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear the Florida recount lawsuit, Bush v. Gore, violated the U.S. Constitution. It's a states' rights issue. Elections fall under state law; the highest court that may resolve a legal challenge about an election is a state supreme court. The U.S. Supreme Court--a federal body--didn't have jurisdiction in the case.

Has Bush v. Gore Become the Case That Must Not Be Named?
August 15, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/qbx2s
At a law school Supreme Court conference that I attended last fall, there was a panel on “The Rehnquist Court.” No one mentioned Bush v. Gore, the most historic case of William Rehnquist’s time as chief justice, and during the Q. and A. no one asked about it. When I asked a prominent law professor about this strange omission, he told me he had been invited to participate in another Rehnquist retrospective, and was told in advance that Bush v. Gore would not be discussed.
The ruling that stopped the Florida recount and handed the presidency to George W. Bush is disappearing down the legal world’s version of the memory hole, the slot where, in George Orwell’s “1984,” government workers disposed of politically inconvenient records. The Supreme Court has not cited it once since it was decided, and when Justice Antonin Scalia, who loves to hold forth on court precedents, was asked about it at a forum earlier this year, he snapped,“Come on, get over it.”
There is a legal argument for pushing Bush v. Gore aside. The majority opinion announced that the ruling was “limited to the present circumstances” and could not be cited as precedent. But many legal scholars insisted at the time that this assertion was itself dictum — the part of a legal opinion that is nonbinding — and illegitimate, because under the doctrine of stare decisis, courts cannot make rulings whose reasoning applies only to a single case. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/15/opinion/15t...
Get over it. At least the USSC ruled on the election of 2000 and they have not touched Obama's NBC status!
By the way, the governor of Florida had just announced an emergency legislature meeting when the USSC made it's ruling. The purpose of the legislature would have been to nullify the election and then the legislature would vote directly on the Electoral College and it would have been perfectly legal.
There is no place in our Constitution that requires a popular vote for the presidency. All our Constitution says it is a state's right but does not tell the state how to accomplish that.
In fact Senators were appointed by the state legislatures until 1913 when the 17th Amendment became law.

Your throwing "how about" numbers around is not speculation by scientists.
You're not making much sense.
We know that the universe is very old. Billions of years old. We know the Earth is also billions of years in age.
It is well established that humans are descendants of non-human primates.
It is also known that the founder population was much more than a single mating pair.
Despite your dissatisfaction with the fact that scientific knowledge does not come from the mouth of an infallible deity the fact remains that the Adam & Eve story is literally false. It is also undeniable that death could not have come into the world through the transgression of one man.
Get over it.

I appreciate and respect science.

I think it was probable that if Adam cut down a tree there would be many, many, many rings inside it.

Also some of the fruit and vegetables might have been rotten and not editable.

So What!

Maybe Adam and Eve were hairy ape-like Humans?

After all Chimps cannot drive airplanes or pass an SAT test.

Something to ponder my friend.

Why are the Muslims, the Christians, and the Jews all waiting for Jesus to come back?

Population, U.S., 2012 : 316 million
Seeing as there were 10 million more Americans from Obama's swearing-in, to this day, how many coming into the work force at a time when things were/are pretty tight? Could that by any chance have an effect on employment figures and part of that 13 and 3 million without jobs that you cited?, not to mention a 10.5% unemployment rate at the end of 2009, which had nothing to do with Obama, but is GWB's legacy. Numbers are numbers, but you have to decipher them too, Rogue.
In January 2009 the Labor Participation Rate was 65.7% and July 2013 (last published rate) it was down to 63.4%(same rate it was when Jimmy Carter left office) which means a drop of 2.3% and what is 2.3% of our population that is of employable age?
316M X 78% X 2.3%= 5.67M and that does not include those who are less than full time employed.
Oh, 78% of our population are employment age (16-70 years old).

Glenn Beck’s Gold Deal Raising Questions at Fox
December 13, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ybezk7b
The Fox News Channel is only too happy to have the Midas ratings touch that Glenn Beck has been providing, but the golden words he may pour into the ears of his audience have raised questions at the news network.
Most of those have concerned whether Mr. Beck, who often hails the virtue of buying gold on his Fox show (as a hedge against a coming economic collapse), had been identified as a “paid spokesman” for a company named Goldline International, which sells gold coins.
Joel Cheatwood, the senior vice president of development for Fox News, said the network’s legal department had recently sent a letter to Mr. Beck’s representatives “seeking clarification” about his work for Goldline.

They're All Against Jobs
by Sen. Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze
Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.

Top Ten Worst Things about the Bush Decade;
Or, the Rise of the New Oligarchs

December 22, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/yl2lb2g

We have always had robber barons in American politics, but the Neoliberal moment created a new social class. At about 1.3 million adults, it is not too large to have some cohesive interests, and its corporations, lobbyists, and other institutions allow it to intervene systematically in politics. It owns 45 percent of the privately held wealth and is heading toward 50, i.e. toward a Banana Republic. Thus, we have a gutted fairness doctrine and the end of anti-trust concerns in ownership of mass media, allowing a multi-billionaire like Rupert Murdoch to buy up major media properties and to establish a cable television channel which is nothing but oligarch propaganda. They established 'think tanks' like the American Enterprise Institute, which hires only staff that are useful agents of the interests of the very wealthy, and which produce studies denying global climate change or lying about the situation in Iraq. Bush-Cheney were not simply purveyors of wrong-headed ideas. They were the agents of the one percent, and their policies make perfect sense if seen as attempts to advance the interests of this narrow class of persons. It is the class that owns our mass media, that pays for the political campaigns of 'our'(their) representatives, that gives us the Bushes and Cheneys and Palins because they are useful to them, and that blocks progressive reform and legislation with the vast war chest funneled to them by deep tax cuts that allow them to use essential public resources, infrastructure and facilities gratis while making the middle class pay for them.

Here are my picks for the top ten worst things about the wretched period, which, however, will continue to follow us until the economy is re-regulated, anti-trust concerns again pursued, a new, tweaked fairness doctrine is implemented, and we return to a more normal distribution of wealth (surely a quarter of the privately held wealth is enough for the one percent?) It isn't about which party is in power; parties can always be bought. It is about how broadly shared resources are in a society. Egalitarianism is unworkable, but over-concentration of wealth is also impractical.

The latter produced a lot of our problems in the past decade, and as long as such massive inequality persists, our politics will be lopsided.

Majority Of Tea Party Group's Spending Went To GOP Firm That Created It
December 28, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/yl3dbqv
The political action committee behind the Tea Party Express (TPE)-- which already has been slammed as inauthentic and corporate-controlled by rival factions in the Tea Party movement -- directed almost two thirds of its spending during a recent reporting period back to the Republican consulting firm that created the PAC in the first place.
Our Country Deserves Better (OCDB) spent around $1.33 million from July through November, according to FEC filings examined by TPMmuckraker. Of that sum, a total of $857,122 went to Sacramento-based GOP political consulting firm Russo, Marsh, and Associates, or people associated with it.

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record
January 9, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/9ylluu
President George W. Bush entered office in 2001 just as a recession was starting, and is preparing to leave in the middle of a long one. That’s almost 22 months of recession during his 96 months in office.
His job-creation record won’t look much better. The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years, a fraction of the 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton’s administration and only slightly better than President George H.W. Bush did in his four years in office.
Here’s a look at job creation under each president since the Labor Department started keeping payroll records in 1939. The counts are based on total payrolls between the start of the month the president took office (using the final payroll count for the end of the prior December) and his final December in office.
Because the size of the economy and labor force varies, we also calculate in percentage terms how much the total payroll count expanded under each president. The current President Bush, once taking account how long he’s been in office, shows the worst track record for job creation since the government began keeping records

Er, Rgue, you just don't see a conflict of interest when it smashes you in the face, now do you? Matters not if investors he lured profited or not, and they could've just as well lost, don't forget, it is a huge conflict of interest if investigation finds that Beck did indeed front for that company.
