There is zero evidence of any hate crime being committed. Remember, the Police, FBI and Grand Jury chose not to file charges. Is the NAACP planning on creating new evidence? If not, what is there to look at? The evidence was presented and a verdict rendered. Oh, toesap, what were you saying about someone not liking the verdict? Tell it to the NAACP.

Hummm, WTF? What do tanks have to do with football? What do tanks have to do with civil unrest? I seriously doubt that they ordered tanks for the world cup.
There are a lot of bad actors in that part of the world and they are not going to wait until a football game to start things. Methinks the writer is just trying to get a name for himself for connecting the dots ,,,,,,, where there are NO DOTS!

Qatar set to purchase 118 tanks to prepare for 2022 World Cup Mike Prindiville Jul 14, 2013,

Qatar is set to purchase 118 Leopard tanks and 16 tank howitzers from Germany in preparation for hosting the 2022 World Cup.

German newspaper Bild am Sonntag made the announcement Sunday claiming the oil-rich nation will pay several billion dollars to German defense manufacturer Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and defense tech group Rheinmetall.

The deal comes after the government of German Chancellor Angela Merkel approved the initial purchase of 62 Leopard tanks and 24 howitzers this past spring.

Republicans talk a good game but never ever delivered smaller government.
12 years of Reagan/Bush and 8 years of Bush/Cheney increased the size of government with the largest deficits in history.
=========
No Republican administration has balanced a budget since Eisenhower in 1957.
Dwight Eisenhower was last Republican President to preside over a balanced budget. He had a balanced budget in 1956 and 1957. Since then, there have been two presidents to preside over balanced budgets, LBJ in 1969 and Clinton in 1998 through 2001. During the last 40 years there have been five budget surpluses, all five were under Democratic Presidents: 1969, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.
Hummmm, to pass any budget it must first be passed by the House and YOU Democrats controlled the House for the entire eight years Reagan was in office.
But you will give Bill Clinton credit, and not Newt Gingrich, because Bill Clinton signed into law four of Newts balanced budgets!!!
As far as Bush-41 and -43, neither was a conservative. And under Bush Congress was dominated by the Democrats whereas under -43 Congress was dominated by Country Club RINOs.
You do know a lot of Conservatives, like myself, are not happy with either Bush over their fiscal policies, don't you?

For 6 out of 8 years Bush and Cheney had a Republican House, a Republican Senate, a Republican Supreme Court, Most Republican Governors, and most Republican State Houses all across America.

ZERO LIBERALS.

I hope you are also not satisfied with 12 years of Reagan/Bush.

By todays standards even Reagan was a RINO.

Encore: United States of ALEC
November 30, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cuwj5qy
In an encore broadcast, Moyers & Company presents “United States of ALEC,” a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of — ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership”. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers — each accomplished without the public ever knowing who’s behind it. One Wisconsin politician describes ALEC as “a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.”
“United States of ALEC” is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.

McCain guru linked to subprime crisis / Republican Phil Gramm
3/28/08 / http://tinyurl.com/2ujo9b
The general co-chairman of John McCain’s presidential campaign, former Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas), led the charge in 1999 to repeal a Depression-era banking regulation law that Democrat Barack Obama claimed on Thursday contributed significantly to today’s economic turmoil.

“A regulatory structure set up for banks in the 1930s needed to change because the nature of business had changed,” the Illinois senator running for president said in a New York economic speech.“But by the time [it] was repealed in 1999, the $300 million lobbying effort that drove deregulation was more about facilitating mergers than creating an efficient regulatory framework.”
Gramm’s role in the swift and dramatic recent restructuring of the nation’s investment houses and practices didn’t stop there.

A year after the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act repealed the old regulations, Swiss Bank UBS gobbled up brokerage house Paine Weber. Two years later, Gramm settled in as a vice chairman of UBS’s new investment banking arm.

Later, he became a major player in its government affairs operation. According to federal lobbying disclosure records, Gramm lobbied Congress, the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department about banking and mortgage issues in 2005 and 2006.

During those years, the mortgage industry pressed Congress to roll back strong state rules that sought to stem the rise of predatory tactics used by lenders and brokers to place homeowners in high-cost mortgages.

For his work, Gramm and two other lobbyists collected $750,000 in fees from UBS’s American subsidiary. In the past year, UBS has written down more then $18 billion in exposure to subprime loans and other risky securities and is considering cutting as many as 8,000 jobs. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0308/924...

Not liking? I have no problem with the verdict.

BTW, I never said there was evidence of a hate crime.

What I did say was that DOJ might continue investigating making GZ's life miserable and that they can be vindictive SOBs.

Now how does that appear I don't "like" the verdict.

In fact if GZ had been found guilty and given only 10 years I would have felt sorry for the stupid schlump. He really didn't understand how inappropriate it is for a neighborhood watch volunteer to pursue fantasy suspects with a gun. He was playing cops & robbers, but Martin's only real life was ended. Martin should have avoided confrontation. He could have easily outrun Zimmerman. Martin was not without fault, but he didn't deserve to be picked on and shot dead by an adult. If Zimmerman does this again, I doubt the jury will be forgiving.

Even by today's standards,Reagan could sign into law only those that were passed by the Democrat controlled House. I bet f the Newtonian Conservative Republicans where in control of Congress, Reagan would have gotten a lot further with his Conservative agenda.
And if there were not 60 Democrats and Democrat leaning Independents in the Senate in 2009, Obamacare never would have passed!

Does the first amendment give you the right to wear Hitler t-shirts emblazoned with swastikas? NO. Why? Because the represent HATE and violence. Same for machine guns and Zimmerman-targeted t-shirts. First amendment rights to wear those? I think not. To go even farther to make a point, as you do not seem to understand, how about the first amendment protecting a person wearing a t-shirt that depicts a fornicating couple, and to make it even more horrible for you, two men fornicating? Would the first amendment allow that?
As a matter of fact...the first amendment DOES allow us to wear such things.

All above included.

There is no..."unless someone finds it distasteful"

The only real exception are children at a tax funded institution...like a school.

"Why?"... has never been explained to me in a satisfactory manner. But that seems to be the way it is.

Italian senator says black minister has 'features of orangutan'
Roberto Calderoli is condemned after speech in which he also said Cécile Kyenge should work as minister 'in her country'
14 July 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/nkr5u8v
The Italian prime minister, Enrico Letta, has condemned as unacceptable comments made by a senior rightwing senator in which he suggested the country's first black government minister had "the features of an orangutan".
Cécile Kyenge, an eye surgeon who was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo but has Italian citizenship, has faced repeated racial slurs and threats since being appointed minister for integration by Letta in April.

So, what does Roberto Calderoli have to do with the price of spaghetti in America? His Lega Nordm (Northern League party) has only about 5% of the seats in the Italian legislature!!!
Now, how many times have you Libtards call me a "cracker" on this forum?

That's right, Wojar.
I think Zimmerman followed lots of people in the past. Most of them may not have known they were being tailed. And some probably were creeped out by him but did not take a swing at the night watchman.
People get into confrontations, that is a fact of life.
Another fact of life is that when soemone takes a swing, all bets are off.
That's they way the cookie crumbles sometimes.
I'm not happy about it either.

Using Libtardian Logic, if GZ needed to be tried because a few people think he did, we should try Obama because over 100 million Americans think we should. A JURY SHOULD DECIDE because We the People demand it!!!
Umm, I said Zimmerman actions could be viewed as provocation. Nothing about Z violating statute by following.

BTW, genius, Zimmerman was tried because the prosecution cleared the probable cause hurdle. That's how it works.

Nevertheless, trial by jury is not germane to my comment, which pointed out that the jury has nothing to do with immunity under 776.032 or any reimbursement for fees and expenses related to the trial.

Zimmerman is not entitled to expenses and fees under 776.032 and the jury has nothing to do with that.

Do you think you can ever stay on point?

Similarly, GZ cannot recover fees and expenses under 776.32.
By waiving his right for a pretrial hearing to determine immunity, and recover fees and expenses he OPTED FOR A TRIAL. It's too late for a hearing for immunity from prosecution after the fact.
What planet RU from?

Where do you think the word fascist came from Rouge?

It is extreme right wing govt.

I am sure you know a word or two for extreme liberal forms of govt.

The Nazis were all about conservatism. Bringing back traditional values and restoring the greatness of Germany.

Worse...Most were confessing Catholics. The rest were prodestant and other forms of christianity.

This is textbook Right Wing Conservatism in its finest hour.

I too thought there was reasonable doubt as to what actually happened and in what order those events might have occured.
I think the jury was courageous and performed their duty admirably as was instructed by the law.
Case closed.
I agree Zimmerman was not guilty of the charges per the letter of the law but his hands are not clean. That is the shame of it.

Now what happens if Zimmerman shoots another kid?
