first I don't bother wiht CNN, Fox or MSNBC. I prefer PBS news hour, BBC and foreign news agencies.

second, you completely dodged the question. Other that ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN SERBS AND A FEW CROATS, were any Bosnian Muslims convicted of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide or ethnic cleansing?

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.
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.

My have times changed, eh Democrat fascist, haven't they?
dude you are as dumb as a rock, maybe even dumber. I don't support any friggin religion. Personally, I think the world would be much better off without religion. Too many religious zealots use religion to advance their evil. Hitler did it, Osama bin Laden did it, The current Pope, who instituted the policy of transferring pedophile priests to avoid prosecution, did it. abortion clinic bombers do it, etc.

so don't go claiming that I support Muslim terrorists. a poster pointed out that Islam is a religion of terrorism. I just pointed out that Christians can be terrorists too.

what a buffoon and typical of the conservative mind set/capability Its either black or white with you idiots. If I point out that Muslims have suffered atrocities at the hands of Christians, then somehow I must support Muslim terrorists.

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.

The Marines are part of the US Navy, draft dodger.

----------

The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from the sea, using the mobility of the United States Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. It is one of seven uniformed services of the United States. The Marine Corps is a component of the United States Department of the Navy, often working closely with naval forces for training, transportation, and logistics; however, the Marine Corps is a separate branch."

Key phrase being;

"The Marine Corps is a component of the United States Department of the Navy"

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

Galt has no objection if the Marines are folded back into the Navy for administrative purposes.
Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or enlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required; that they be enlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered as part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of.
Ordered, That a copy of the above be transmitted to the General.

I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment.... He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation. Former Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd (D.,Conn.)

Exactly the reason why nuculur, a moral inbred... Should join: Rainbow Coalition, NAACP, The Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, or one of many other leftwing lugnut hate group like 'The Crips'...

Nuculur can then escape from all that racism and wagon train of hate...

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
"you can be a liberal fascist" -this part is right

"Fascist ideology consistently invoked the primacy of the state. Leaders such as Benito Mussolini in Italy and Adolf Hitler in Germany embodied the state and claimed indisputable power. Fascism borrowed theories and terminology from socialism but applied them to what it saw as the more significant conflict between nations and races rather than to class conflict, and focused on ending the divisions between classes within the nation."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism

Hitler was indeed borrowing socialism theories and using them. The hair splitting associated with Fascism is the effort to sort through all there various ideologies and changing ideologies (as it was to their convenience) to identify these dictators exclusively as being Right or Left. The bottom argument appears to be if it wasn't PURE socialism it couldn't be LEFT seems shoddy.
