Prove that my comments and/or data were fakes, I challenge you. You can't.

I don't like military war crimes, no matter who commits them. Just because I'm American doesn't mean that I ignore the travesties of my government and the military.

Besides, you're derailing this thread to attack me.
If you had credible information to counter what I post, you would have posted it in the appropriate thread.

There's an 800 number to report rapes in the military.
AFN currently runs lots of public service announcements as well.
Once again I would love to go post for post with you but it's been proven your a fraud. You attack the US military over and over yet get the nerve to claim you support them. It isn't derailing to prove your a phony as was done in the other thread.

In case you forgot how absurd your argument was. YOU posted pictures claiming it was of US forces raping Iraqi women. Those pictures were from a porno website. What little credibility you might have had went out the window with that.

These ultimately resulted in a December 12 7-2 United States Supreme Court decision stating that the Florida Supreme Court's plan for recounting ballots was unconstitutional, as well as a 5-4 decision that ended the Florida recounts and allowed Florida to certify its vote. The vote was certified according to Florida state election law by Katherine Harris, the Republican Secretary of State who had been the Florida co-chair of Bush's campaign.[36] Because Bush's younger brother, Jeb Bush, was the governor of Florida, there were allegations that Harris and Jeb Bush had manipulated the election to favor the governor's brother.

According to the claims of the 2002 book Into the Buzzsaw: Leading Journalists Expose The Myth of a Free Press (Kristina Borjesson) which tells the stories of 15 investigative journalists, 58,000 names had been taken off the voters list by governor Jeb Bush and Secretary Harris. They explained this by saying that these were people with criminal records and they were not entitled to their right to vote. According to the journalist Greg Palast this only applied to a small minority of these people. Of these people who were taken away their right to vote in November 2000, always according to the claim of Palast, 54% of them were Black and many were White or Hispanic Democrat supporters.[37][38]
From 2000 election wiki

* There is no individual federal agency with direct regulatory authority of the U.S. voting machine industry.[40] However the Election Assistance Commission has full regulatory authority over federal testing and certification processes, as well as an influential advisory role in certain voting industry matters.[41] Further oversight authority belongs to the Government Accountability Office, regularly investigating voting system related issues.[42]

* The former president of Diebold Election Systems (Bob Urosevich) and the vice president of customer support at ES&S (Todd Urosevich)[43] are brothers.[44]

* Walden O'Dell the former CEO of Diebold (the parent company of voting machine manufacturer Diebold Election Systems) was an active fundraiser for George W. Bush's re-election campaign and wrote in a fund-raising letter dated August 13, 2003, that he was committed "to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President."[45]

* Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, who was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-presidential candidates,[46][47] served as the chairman of ES&S in the early 1990s when it operated under the name American Information Systems Inc. (AIS).[48] ES&S voting machines tabulated 85 percent of the votes cast in Hagel’s 2002 and 1996 election races. In 2003 Hagel disclosed a financial stake in McCarthy Group Inc., the holding company of ES&S.[48]

* Global Election Systems, which was purchased by Diebold Election Systems and developed the core technology behind the company's voting machines and voter registration system, employed five convicted felons as consultants and developers.[49]

* Jeff Dean, a former Senior Vice-President of Global Election Systems when it was bought by Diebold, had previously been convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree. Bev Harris reports Dean was retained as a consultant by Diebold Election Systems,[50] though Diebold has disputed the consulting relationship.[49] Dean was convicted of theft via "alteration of records in the computerized accounting system" using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years.[50]

* International election observers were barred from the polls in Ohio[51][52] by then Republican Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. Blackwell's office argues this was the correct interpretation of Ohio law.[52]

* California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley decertified all Diebold Election Systems touch-screen voting machines due to computer-science reports released detailing design and security concerns.[53][54]

* 30% of all U.S. votes cast in the 2004 election were cast on direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting machine, which do not print individual paper records of each vote.[55]

* Numerous statistical analysis showed "discrepancy in the number of votes Bush received in counties that used the touch-screen machines and counties that used other types of voting equipment" as well as discrepancies with exit polls, favoring President George W. Bush.[56][57][58][59][60][61][62][63]

You should see them in the "Jump Up and Down On Ted Kennedy's Near-Corpse" thread. I tried to explain over there, not very well, what you just said much better - this...is it hypocrisy? Is it - what? They like to be victims and scream and wail, but they also like to be bullies. If you call them out on being bullies they instantly morph into shrieking victims. What's that called?

What goes around comes around. Singing that about Bush is funny. Just like when classless right wingers surrounded Vice President Al Gore's home shouting "get out of Cheney's house".

It does make you wonder what these folks are going to do now. They've been ascendant since 1993 or whenever that Contract with America-Christian Right Dominionism business started up - it'll be interesting to watch. It'll also be interesting to watch right wing TV, maybe. For a while. Faced with a pragmatic president, what's to complain about? (Wouldnt it be nice if they began to lose market share...it'd be like watching the witch melt at the end of TWOZ, over and over...)

props to you.

i, too, believe that obama has enough class to chide these dimwits for their partisan idiocy.

Oh, thanks for coming over here. I figured out in typing that post what it is you guys do. You're just bullies. You bully as viciously as you can until someone calls you on it, then you huddle up and scream that you're being attacked. Just garden variety bullying.

palin did no such thing, so it would be mighty difficult for anyone to complain about a non-event.
right?
