The author also mentions Martin, remember though, Zimmerman acted within the law. If you don't like the law, then we need to change it. Sadly, we are a country that is loaded down with guns and lax laws on use of them. Only a cultural shift away from shoot first, ask second, will change anything, and that will take decades.
you do realize the heart is on the left side of the body? Better to be a loving fool than a cold calculating and heartless Fraud man.
and on cue....the clueless appear. It was a mistake to announce the verdict at night. The people, and I use that term very loosely, that rioted, are below animals and are not progressives. They are just as clueless as you are, in their own way. You are nothing but an agitator who lives in a bubble.
Elk - in all due respect, from what I've seen, this looked justifiable self defense by the policeman. People should stop and put up their hands and then a day later can sue the police if they feel they've been mistreated. Attacking an Officer will only end up bad for that person. And rioting will never solve anything.
Dickw....of course I want integrity. Name the last politician/administration that had integrity. Can you? I can't. They all lie and have their own interest, not yours or mine, at heart. They all need to go and start anew.
and yet....Keep won't like it.....Good post Elk!
DickW and Cat...you two don't seem to realize this was a REPUBLICAN led report. Your own people/party came to this conclusion. So they are all liars now too? Pretty soon the only people you'll agree with are the lunatic fringe. Wake up you two.
Is it because it details that there was not an intelligence failure or a stand down order. So, it doesn't match up to what Fox reported all along, and now they are caught, once again, with making up "facts" to support their twisted views. Sad for those who get their news from Fox....they'll never learn.
glaciers are not growing.....and just because water around the polar caps froze, it gives it the indication that they are not melting, but the base is, I know you'll find that difficult to understand.
I'll take NASA over your article any day. They have a history of trust worthiness, unlike some random people you quote.
you just love twisting things for your own entertainment, don't you. Fact is, oceans have been warming.....no "word smithing" by you or paid by coal so called "scientists" can change that.
so you speak two languages, big whoop, so do I. I lived in Europe too.
Here is an unfounded speculation on your part, I don't hate the 1%, I hate what a lot of them are doing to our political system and owning politicians. There is a difference. Do you honestly think the Koch Bros have your best interest at heart? Making money by destroying the planet is NOT compatible with any logic. Wake up.
Well, if you talk to them in the same manner that you talk to people on this MB, they must love you. Do you have any restraining orders against you?
News Flash back at 'ya...you have no idea about my views either, you just assume if someone didn't vote for Romney they are socialist/commies/gay/drug users.......
Doesn't it make you sad that you live in a black and white world?
Where were you when Bush signed the Patriot Act into law, when they tortured and illegally abducted citizens and sent them over seas for "enhanced" interrogation? How about, did it upset you when Obama renewed it? I sure was #$%$ off that he did. So what now? Besides posting on this MB, do you actually do anything to make things better?
are you really this clueless? Did you know this will create 3K odd jobs for two years, that the oil the Canadians are shipping thru the pipe will be sold to Asia, and not us? Did you know that it runs over our largest aquifer and most precious resource, water? Why risk this for no return to us? This is really stupid, and if you stopped listening to Rush for a moment you can figure it out for yourself. Don't be dumb, there is no point in having this pipeline. If the Canadians want to sell their oil, run their damn pipeline thru their own country, and not risk ours. Think.....thinking is not over rated, regardless of what the RWNJ's will tell you.
if you took a moment and reflected, you'd see I criticize him plenty. It is when the attacks are egregious and completely out of context with everything else he has done, one has no choice but to defend him. Don't let ideology rule your life....
you honestly belief Romney / Ryan would do better? These jokers are all beholden to the 1% and large corporations. It is about choosing the lesser of two evils. Get rid of campaign contributions, run an election like they do in Europe, short public financed campaign, lots of debates and see how they do. The system is corrupted, whether it is Dems or Repubs, they all hurt the common man.
the difference between the ACA and the Iraq War lies is that the ACA helps Americans, where as the Iraq War helped the industrial military complex....huge difference. All of them lie, but if they lie to benefit us, then people close an eye to it. We know that you want to go back to the robber barons times, we don't want to let you though.
underwater basket weaving doesn't count little buddy.......you are all out of ideas and stuck in denial mode once again.....sad
