I quote:

"The study found that hundreds, if not thousands, of legal votes for Gore had not been counted. These fell into two categories. They included undervotes that, upon examination, were found to be valid under Florida law, i.e., the ballots showed a "clear indication of the intent of the voter." The other category was so-called "overvotes"-ballots that were wrongly rejected because a voter punched or marked a ballot for Gore and also wrote in the Democratic candidate's name, circled it, or made some other mark around or near the candidate's name or party. According to state law these votes were also legal and should have been counted.

The study acknowledged that if all of the undervotes and overvotes in Florida had been examined fairly and objectively and the legal ballots in these categories had been added to the final tally, Gore would have won the election."

Ben D.-- is this something you just found out about? I'm curious as to why you wanted to post it here, approximately 3 years after the fact.

The Wingers had been denying it (Larry and his little group) and I thought I'd see how they reacted to this.

Ben...Bush lost in Florida. But he decided that he wanted to be President bad enough that he would steal it any way. He fought hard for it, demanded extra time in the game if you will. Now isn't this kind of tenacity that you want in a President? Gore just rolled over thinking that the final whistle was really the final whistle. The game isn't over until you absolutely, positively can't find a way to win!!

This winger has an embarrassed smile when I think of Florida and how Gore got robbed.

You're a good little liberal. Go see Fahrenheit 9/11. You'll see Al Gore himself tell the Democrats to sit down and shut up. Don't believe me? \:D

Bendover, you need to catch up with the times there, old poopy drawers. Your information is 3 years old, and a lot has happened since then. The votes have been counted repeatedly by organizations on both sides, and today the only people who aren't aware that Bush won Florida are ignorant idiots and little children with problems.

Geez..... I *wondered* what moron had dragged *this* old junk up out of the trash heap....

Read the article.

I see no proof to support your argument at all while I have posted a non-biased article.

Ben, this is the second time I am going to impart some of my personal wisdom to you. I sincerely don't know why I'm doing this now, but I am. (You may want to look up the first time I did this).

When I was just about your age, a little older, maybe 15, I was in a large group of people at a very large public function and made a disparaging remark about another group of people (to their faces). (FYI it was school-related, not racial or anything). A guy I knew (a year older) who was built better than Hulk Hogan (he strived for that, and I'm not kidding) heard me and told me that I had better keep my mouth shut unless I was prepared to personally back it up. I was only 15 but that has always stuck with me. One of the many lessons I learned not from my parents.

Since that day I haven't always kept my mouth shut, but I have *always* been able to back up what I say, whether it be here with facts on the Piano World Forums or in real life with my person.

I suggest you think about that. Think about what you say before you say it, and don't say it unless you are ready to back it up (with either facts or your personal, physical intervention). You only need facts here. In real life you might need personal, physical intervention.

Either way, you'll get your ass handed to you except here it will be in a much nicer (and less painful) way. \:\)
