What's your point son? It would appear you can quote, but you can't read or comprehend.

It's an ailment that strikes many right wing crazies since, well, they're crazy!

It was Gore's decision to cherry-pick the recount in counties where he thought he would fare best. When that didn't work, he resorted to the typical Democrat strategy of endless recounts until you get the result you want. Like Al Franken.

The picture of those idiots in South Florida trying to guess what voters intended was a national disgrace. Any ballots that did not register in the machine should have been discarded.

Second, you failed to acknowledge that these monies are not tied exclusively to social programs. A lot of the monies certain states receive such as Alaska is payment for using the land for federal purposes such as massive state parks, etc.
Third, you failed to acknowledge some of the monies received to states are earmarked for Indian tribes due to ancient treaties.
Synopsis of post- if you think your post shows what you thought it did you are wrong. If you thought you could throw out random stats and everybody would buy what you said as the truth then you are wrong again.

Carbon is carbon, regardless of the source.

Oil and gas are not "gone forever", but are continuously produced, although at a much slower rate than consumption.

Farmers do not decide whether to use as food or fuel.

WTF is "Natural Commons"?

What is wrong with you? A part of the treaty with the Indians was they had to give up there weapons and in turn the government would provide them with food and shelter.
BTW, not all fascist fall into right wing ideology while all Socialist -which Hitler was -is always a Left wind ideology.
they gave up their guns AFTER THEY WERE DEFEATED. DUH! Having guns didn't keep them from being conquered, which is a main point you idiots make against gun control. and the gov't didn't even have close to the weapons it has today.

go study some political science, Hitler was a Fascist not a socialist. and yes all Fascists fall into the right wing category. you can be a liberal fascist

Palm Beach county, Boca Raton, South Florida Miami is a hell hole cesspool of hate and demoratic ignorance...

As a reminder... "Just because you choose to believe something doesn't make it true."

Congressional leaders, Democratic officials, and Al Gore aides 'BLAMED' the 'DEMOCRATIC' Palm Beach County, Boca Raton election supervisor, Theresa LePore a Democrat... Jean and lily's ghetto hood... for losing Gore his election dumbass...

Ms. LePore, who redesigned the county's ballot that year, said she had hoped to make it easier to read for the county's many elderly Jewish and illiterate liberal voters to read you moron...

Ms. LePore a democRat and was in charge of the 2000 State Florida ballot design and election process and count, Mr idiot Democrat...

you know I've been wondering the same thing.. Seeing how most liberal states like California, NY, Illinois pay more taxes into the Federal gov't than they get back, while most republican states actually get more in Federal dollars than they pay into the Federal gov't
why should we be supporting republican welfare mooching states
States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:
1. New Mexico:$2.63
2. West Virginia:$2.57
3. Mississippi:$2.47
4. District of Colombia:$2.41
5. Hawaii:$2.38
6. Alabama:$2.03
7. Alaska:$1.93

having kept up on the news, i can not remember one instance of Bosnian Muslims committing genocide. Nor can I remember any Bosnian Muslims being convicted of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide or ethnic cleansing. Seems to me the vast majority were ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN SERBS AND SOME CROATS
But hey I could be wrong.....so did Bosnian Muslims commit genocide?
There was four Bosniaks were convicted in the after math of the the wars in the former Yugoslavia.

Gore won the popular vote by half a million votes.

Clearly, the American Voters preferred Gore.

The Supremes, most of whom were put there by Repugnants violated the Constitution by choosing a winner.
