Okay, Mr. M. Moore Jr.
Just so you know, I did have a reply to your first post including links to the comments and everything – but the blogspot server crashed as I was posting. Of course I had saved it on Word, but cut it to paste it to the blogspot and I ended up having to do everything from memory – surprised I hit all the points at all. Hope you weren’t too upset, I’ll try better here. Here is a link to the comments I am responding to.
Glad I could help with the lesson on
You are correct; President Bush didn’t get the majority of the popular vote – that is why the Electoral College is around. We all know how our Presidents are elected – it wasn’t something that was a surprise to Al Gore and he ran his campaign accordingly. There have been three other elections since the Civil War like this – the difference is in this one the losing party decided it would be better to try and take advantage of our system in order to sow discord.Our Founding Fathers were perhaps the most insightful and prescient group of people ever assembled – they set up a
They also feared what would happen if one state became too powerful – it is reflected in many areas such as the Electoral College, the equal number of Senators from each state as well as the requirement that the President and VP be from different states. I am not sure where you live, but can you imagine what would happen if every election was decided by JUST the voters in
Okay, enough government – how about your charge of minority voters being “disenfranchised” as they say. Well according to Peter Kirsanow, a member of the US Commission on Civil Rights no such thing occurred. He states, “No, absolutely not. This kind of rhetoric has been trafficked in for the last going-on-four years now by a number of individuals. It's kind of surprising that a presidential candidate would actually do the same. But, as you may recall, before the polls were even closed in
Errors happen in all elections. People make mistakes, fraud occurs, but for a group of people to proclaim an election was stolen is simply irresponsible and wrong. Our system worked as it was intended to. You might disagree, but that is why we have another election in 4 years. Remember the 1960 election when Nixon lost to Kennedy? Amazingly close, HUGE (now confirmed) voter fraud in
For a party that is supposed to be accepting they sure have a hard time accepting that they lost - and don't tell me they didn't because if that were the case Gore would be in the White House right now, it just didn't happen.
And if you want to know where this irresponsible and untrue rhetoric leads - Qadhafi's son stated that he couldn't believe Bush was lecturing Arab states on Democracy when half of the US doesn't believe he was elected. Direct evidence that the behavior of "Lie-N-Hype 9/11" wack-o's empowers our enemies.
The Enviro Wack-o’s, well you admit that there are scientists that are now “…refuting the hypothesis that the burning of fossil fuels is leading to the green house effect and warming the planet. The vast majority of scientists today are on the side of global warming.” By your logic Columbus should have never left
Our entire lifestyle is based on the burning of fossil fuels. No one wants to ignore what might happen, but radicalism is not the answer – particularly when there is now science that disputes that warming is even occurring, or at least outside the norm for the earth's lengthly climate history. I do find it very interesting that the ALL POWERFUL HUMAN (as enviro’s portray us to be) can’t even manage to kill bacteria without it evolving and adapting to become a super bug but at the same time we are supposed to be accidentally destroying the world just by our very existence.
Imagine your doctor telling you that in order to save your life we needed to sew your mouth shut, after all you might die in 150 years or more because you seem to be gaining weight! No, a diet change or modification in your lifestyle won't work - your gonna die! Of course none of the scales show an increase in weight, but the majority of your friends say yep you must be gaining weight, and your Doctor says your feet are bigger! Okay, so your only 120 lbs and you've weighed 210 a few years ago! Doesn't matter, it is that eating that is killing you! Sounds radical.
BTW, name a government program that has ever worked to save energy or lives? How about Clinton's failed hybrid auto program....nope, it didn't even work. The market works which is why the Japanese have produced hybrids. Unfortunately they are money losers. A more realistic technology is fuel cells - hmmmm, didn't Bush propose funding their development? Why yes he did - but I thought he didn't care about the environment?
Interesting how many of the world’s Glaciers (just one article but check out, accumulation zone, glacier - search stats as well) are actually growing in size despite the will of the “majority of scientists.”
Haliburton – well, your beloved Billie (as you put it) gave Haliburton no bid contracts during most of his administration. Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE ONE OF THE FEW COMPANIES WHO CAN DO THE JOB. I suppose they could have had ties to the
PS - again I would extend an offer to allow you to place a liberal outlook here on a regular basis.
