Yes, the MSM has redacted some, but call me when you get done with all five million stories.
OR, you are just to lazy to actually read the results of your google search. After I tried the links for the first million and found that they were similarly broken, I stopped trying to do your job.

Feel free to make a point. Providing a bunch of broken links does nothing to support your argument slacker.

<quoted text>A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks.
So what?

Now give us the stats on how many Caucasian Americans are murdered annually in the United States by their fellow whites, so we all can have something to compare your "chilling" figures with. If you can't do that, stfu!

It wasn't that the intel was wrong, it was that the intel was right and Cheney made them change their intelligence to support his view, and that he shipped this around in various other intelligence channels in Europe and then said "you see? proof!".

If Cheney and co president Bush hadn't got the US into the war, they would not have won 2004 election.

Let's see how Jose handles facts...

He told us that (according to his source) 2,000 Californians moved to Texas every week.**HIS** source gave us the figure of 58,992 a year.

Let's check that math...

58,992 divided by 52 weeks = 1134.46 (1135)

When I called him on it, here's how he responded...

70,000 divided by 52 weeks = about 2,000/week!!!
Yes it is a fact, LIBERALISM DOES NOT WORK!!!
He changed the number of the source **HE** gave us to 70K... and as you see... his math doesn't improve...

according to Ben Franklin the US is doomed.

When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. Sell not liberty to purchase power.- Benjamin Franklin
