Compare And Contrast

I just moved my page over to the beta blog, and I can only imagine the hell that is sure to follow by doing this. So, for no other reason than to see if Google, being Google, can screw-up something else, I'm just posting for the hell of it. Not a lot of thought went into me posting the following articles, but they do go hand in hand. 1. Evil conservatives? Strange... I thought we were supposed to be the ones who ate your children and destroyed the planet. Philanthropy Expert: Conservatives Are More Generous SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse University professor Arthur C. Brooks is about to become the darling of the religious right in America -- and it's making him nervous. The child of academics, raised in a liberal household and educated in the liberal arts, Brooks has written a book that concludes religious conservatives donate far more money than secular liberals to all sorts of charitable activities, irrespective of income. In the book, he cites extensive data analysis to demonstrate that values advocated by conservatives -- from church attendance and two-parent families to the Protestant work ethic and a distaste for government-funded social services -- make conservatives more generous than liberals. Complete story at the link above. 2. Strange... After the elections, I don't remember Republicans screaming for recounts like another party did in 2000 and 2004. Full story at the link:

Funny how they refuse to concede in an election, but are willing to do so in Iraq at the drop of a hat.

Florida Democrat Puts More Faith in Polls Than Election Results By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor November 14, 2006 (Editor's note: Fixes percentages in last paragraph.) (CNSNews.com) - A Florida Democrat says he won't concede defeat in his race to unseat Republican Rep. Tom Feeney "until every vote is actually counted." Clint Curtis said he is considering a legal challenge to the election results: "In this election, the results did not match the Zogby pre-election poll, our internal VoteNow2006.net polling, or our exit polling," Curtis explained. My poll says you're a dumb ass... Or words to that effect.
