the deadline was arbitrary!  this whole fiasco does not pass the "shoe on the other foot" test. what would the repbs have done if the shoe was on the other foot?  the repblicans got over on teh public again.  please explain why anyone would be against the recounting of a hotly disputed election?  when it was as close as it was and as many people were disenfranchised? i dont get it because if the shoe were on teh other foot, the dems only won a state by .001%, i would certainly not oppose a recount.  how is recount unfair to either party??????????????????????

"section 8", your logical reasoning is clearly "chapter 11"

The bottom line is that the US was never in immediate danger from attack from Iraq. We have misued our military superiority by attaking a nation that had no capability of using force agaisnt us. It would make more sense for the administraion to secure our borders and incoming goods, rather than starting a war. Itf it was abotu the 17 UN resolutions, then why didnt the UN back starting a war over it? They didnt because the costs greatly outweighed the benefits. Rather than calm the insurgence of terrorists recruiting, we actually helped by unjustifiably invading a muslim counrty. The Bush administration has taken a unilateral aproach to international relations which, if seen to its ends, will extinguish amicable relations in their entirety. We re better off cooperating with other nations, fostering coalitions and treaties. The ultimate test of this administrationís policies is how we would feel if the shoe was on the other foot. If we werent the hegemon, and say that CHina or Russia was, would we want them withdrawing from the kyoto protocal, comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty, and other such international conventions? If they did, how would their war on terror look if they left a job half done in afghanistan and then took the fight to the second largest oil reserves in teh world? Clearly we would feel agitated, less safe, and praying for a regime change. the shoe does not fit well on the other foot; thus, we should unelect Bush Jr.

WOw i just noticed my last post could come off as pretty racist. Sorry if it offends anyone.

if you look back to the early 1900s/the progressive period you will find your attitude iterated about blacks, mexicans, asians, etc... It was commonly held that the reason blacks committed more crime was that they couldnt control themselves especially their sexual urges... the reasoning was that they wrere more primitive and instinctual. 
maybe you should go to work for teh kkk when you graduate law school

I am an undergrad looking into my chances of getting admitted into law school.  my gpa is 3.07 and i average around 160 on the lsat so far.  My question for all or you out there is: how much being an URM is taken into account in the admissions process?  From a single parent home? a veteran?
it doesnt seem like i will get into a good school on teh strength of my grades, but had otehr issues to deal with that were more pressing at the time.  how much can this affect my standing in the admissions process?
