Overview over the campaign contributions Rupert Murdoch has made since 1987:

http://www.newsmeat.com/billionaire_political_donations/Rupert_Murdoch.php

Over the last 20 years he has spend $163,644 for Republican candidates and $80,500 for Democratic candidates.

The really scary part is that good old Rupert donated money to Ted Kennedy in 1994 and 1999. Cheesy

Yes, it did happen, but it was a commujew conspiracy to cover up the fact that the Holocaust a) didn't happen and b) had it happen, it would have been Stalin's and Chairman FDR's fault and not Hitler's.

Who is she?

Dave

The Queen of Jordan / wife of King Abdullah of Jordan. According to BRTD (and I think phknrocket1k), she's "hot". This isn't something I would disagree with, but the questions remains why it is necessary to start half a dozen threads and polls about her whithin a few days' span.

This was inspired by a President Forever scenario I just played (see the respective thread).


Let's assume the presidential tickets in 1992 looked like this:

Pat Buchanan/Pat Robertson (R)
Jerry Brown/Bob Kerrey (D)
Ross Perot/James Stockdale (I)

The Interior Ministry has just corrected itself. There never were 80,000 disputed ballots to begin with, just 8000.

According to the Ministry of Interior, there are only 2131 disputed ballots for the Chamber of Deputies and 3135 ballots for the Senate now. It seems the recount is more or less irrelevant , since the result of the election couldn't change anyway with this low number of disputed ballots.
4573  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Italy on: April 13, 2006, 02:22:02 pm
Recounting the 80,000 invalid ballots will take a few more days, I think. 

Berlusconi also tried to initiate the recount of one million additional ballots, but in order to do so he would have required the authorization from the Italian president (which he refused to give, because he saw no reason for this).

BTW, by accidental what do you mean? It is considered manslaughter(a step down from murder) here under certain circumstances, such as running over someone while driving drunk. I'd hope in cases of extreme negligence such as that there are criminal penalties.

Okay, maybe I was too unspecific. But I guess clicking on the wrong option in a poll on the Internet isn't "extreme negligence" either.

No, the Soviet Union did not disappear just because of the outcome of a single U.S. presidential election. History isn't so one-dimensional.

Assuming that Ronald Reagan hadn't been elected President of the United States, John Paul II hadn't been elected Pope (and the Solidarnosc movement in Poland hadn't existed), the Soviets hadn't been invaded Afghanistan, Mikhail Gorbachev hadn't been made General secretary of the CPSU, and Chernobyl hadn't happened, then maybe the Soviet Union would have existed additional five or ten years.
