But as to your comment...
Not wanting to see pictures of animals being butchered is one thing. We know it happens and most of us have seen it happen but we're used to seeing meat packaged and prepared at the supermarket.
Not wanting to see the atrocities committed against humankind is a form of denial. There are still Holocaust deniers despite all of the photos and videos proving otherwise. They don't want to look at them either. Makes denying it easier.
Looking at it square in the face is how we process reality. You, like most liberals, would rather remain in denial. Otherwise, you'd have to accept the reality.
Images of Liberals' slaughtered infants reminds me so much of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle": http://www.capitalcentury.com/1906.html

getting anymore would depend on what State you live in.

If we think of states as voters -- and they are in presidential elections due to the Electoral College -- then the Moocher Myth is backward. Starting with the 2000 election, the states that have benefited the most from federal spending have voted Republican. Those that pay the most in taxes per dollar received in spending vote Democrat. This paradox occurs even controlling for a state’s per-capita income, total population, racial composition, education level and defense spending.

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

It remains a mystery why places that receive the most per person in federal spending, particularly on welfare programs, vote in presidential elections for the party that wants to cut those programs.

so fess up and tell us what State you live in so we can determine if the buck stops with you.

Your judgmental political beliefs are selective in nature, thousands upon thousands of Iraqi children were killed unmercifully by the Bush lies, as an alleged christian shouldn't all life matter equally????

Nah, you do. The reality is people come and people go and not much ever changes except the math dictates there's always more and more of them. The reality is, you and your kind just killed a zillion of the little tykes for nothing. I'm sure they'd be comforted now to hear your passionate pleas for their survival. You're NUTS, carol...

No. It's obvious he did. Just as it's obvious that he doesn't intend to surrender voluntarily to face charges of treason and murder... but pay he will... and you will too... bank on it...

For a while longer, I guess. It keeps me from being "willfully ignorant" becuase I don't think Liberals are the guilty parties in all of mankind's foibles.

You are a clown who contributes nothing to this thread but childish taunts and juvenile name calling. There are many times I swear you are no more than ten. Grow up and talk about the topixs at hand and leave the guttersnipe behind.
You are as you show now a very insecure and little man. For a person to make all of the claims you just did is way beyond proof enough to prove my point. You know absolutely nothing about me or who knows who.You post miles and miles of monotonous nonsense daily that few if any ever read, you try so hard to be relevant and project an air of knowledge that is sadly lacking in quality and serves only to boost your own self ego. By the way little man I'm always recognized where ever I go. So suck on on it Billy Barty.

In the unfortunate 1940's the colonial powers in their wisdom, created Israel, and, thereby, it's attendant disaster. Therefore it is STILL the right of the colonial powers in question to un-make it.... bulldoze it.... push it into the sea and make right the absurd original mistake. So which of you real americans wants them? Surely? Someone? It's what you want, isn't it? hello?... I KNOW the southerners will take them, look at how welcoming they've been to the nations other minorities....
