<quoted text> Here you go. Have no idea where it came from.
Of course you don't; you believe it because a rightwinger made it up.
Yet, you scoffed at my posting of the real story. Why is that Flack?

Michael Dunn, 45, of Satellite Beach, has been charged with murder for the Friday slaying of Jordan Davis, 17, a black high school student from the Jacksonville area.

His lawyer said Dunn, who is white, thought he saw a gun and felt threatened during the incident, indicating that he may seek protection under the state’s controversial Stand Your Ground Law, according to local reports.

"Self defense applies because Mr. Dunn was threatened," attorney Robin Lemonidis told CNN.

"We can't say what the defense will be at this stage … but Stand Your Ground is a possibility."

The alleged murder occurred on Friday as Dunn and his girlfriend were traveling to Jacksonville for his son’s wedding, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The pair pulled into a gas station parking lot and stopped next to an SUV, which Davis was sitting in with three other teens, authorities said.

While his girlfriend was inside the store, Dunn asked the teens to turn down the loud music they were playing, cops said.

Davis said something back and there was a heated exchange, authorities said.

Dunn then pulled a gun and fired at least eight shots, hitting Davis twice, cops told the Sentinel.

Dunn and his girlfriend then left the scene.

The Sentinel said the two were staying in a Jacksonville hotel on Saturday when they heard news reports about the teen’s death and drove back to his home in Satellite Beach.

He was arrested at his home on Saturday and charged with murder and attempted murder.

He remains in jail after being denied bond on Monday.

No guns were found inside the teens’ car, authorities said.

Late Wednesday morning, Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) reiterated his call for Republicans to accept President Obama's offer to extend middle income tax cuts in the near-term, and then fight against tax hikes in a broader package.
"In my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people who make less than $250,000," he said on camera, as caught by MSNBC. "We should take them out of this discussion right now and continue to fight against any rate increase, continue to try to work honestly for a much bigger deal."

On the same day, Democrat Sen. Durbin said NO CUTS will be entertained by the Democrats. He reminded Americans that they gave Obama a mandate to crush their own children under extention grade debt on election day. Exit polls showed that "voting to destroy their own childrens future hopes and dreams" was the Obama voters primary motivation for choosing Obama over Romney.

http://mediamatters.org/video/2012/11/28/limb...
too funny.
There is already real and measurable economic growth although you won't read about it here or on the hack sites.

My area, which was ground zero in the mortgage and retail meltdown is showing strong signs of recovery beginning with the unemployment rate becoming manageable. Additionally the foreclosed and abandoned homes are selling again, quickly in certain areas. Retail is back and tourism supplemented by strong South American economies is cranking at near all time highs.

I thought the mess that BushCo created would take a dozen or more years to fix.

Just because you don;'t like what he did with the savings does not change the reforms.
Saying it is so doesn't make it so. The jury is still out on that one. In ten years, once it is too late, we will know if it saved a dime or not. Personally I've never seen any government project come close to whatever it said it would do.

<quoted text> Yeah ago like they are just going to sit there and leave the gun in the car. Teenager aren't that dumb. All I know is from reading all the news stories down there he thought he saw a gun and feared for his life. Why would he pump 9 shots into a car on his son's wedding day otherwise?
It was at a gas station; there's probably witnesses and video.
That guy is obviously a racist nutcase; he killed that kid in cold blood and fled the scene instead of calling the police. He was in his car; he was the instigator.
The cops use that excuse to kill people all the time; "I thought I saw a gun, knife etc and feared for my life"
The guy is a murderer and you have the need to defend him? Why?
Because he's a white crackasscracka who killed a black boy?

I guess you believe that pumping crap into our atmosphere has no effect.
In the 1970s the big thing was climate cooling. People were all in a tizzy about that back then too.

Can't seem to please some people who can't see the bigger picture.

Dunn's girlfriend and the driver of Jordan's vehicle were in Gate Food Post, 8251 Southside Blvd., when the shooting happened. Dunn and his girlfriend took off afterward, and witnesses jotted down their tag number, deputies said.

They were staying in a Jacksonville hotel when they heard a news report Saturday morning indicating someone had died in the shooting, deputies said. They then returned to Brevard.

Dunn, a gun collector, was arrested Saturday at his home in Satellite Beach on charges of murder and attempted murder. He was being held without bail

<quoted text>
Tea Party may now be funded by the democrats?
funding by Democrats with an open taxpayer checkbook.

How long can the business model of the Democratic Party last?

The short answer is, not very. Dems are doomed by their success at creating ever bigger government with ever more handouts and entitlements. All the giving can’t go on and the Obama binge has created a crisis.

Deficits exceeded $1 trillion in each year of his first term, and his combined debt is a staggering $5 trillion. It brings the nation’s total to $16 trillion, and the possibility of default already has caused one rating downgrade.

And there is no end to the spending spree. Obama’s last budget, although chock full of rosy scenarios, still projected the debt would grow by $6.7 trillion over 10 years.

Thus, if all goes as planned, he will leave office with a national debt of $20 trillion, and a debt-to-GDP ratio far above 100 percent.

That’s Greece. It is an unsustainable governing model, so we should be asking not just about the demographic destiny of the GOP, but also how soon Dems will be condemned by the fiscal facts.

Clearly, they don’t want to face the numbers. The president has a fetish for hiking taxes on high earners, saying he didn’t care whether they would produce more revenue because “fairness” was more important.

He wasn’t kidding, as his continuing campaign proves. He declared Monday that Republicans would ruin Christmas for millions of families if they didn’t agree with his tax plan, proving again that re-election didn’t soften his “my way or the highway” attitude.

Equally revealing, congressional Dems tell The New York Times they refuse to make major changes to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, even though those programs are driving the debt and deficit.

Yet liberal senators, including Tom Harkin of Iowa and Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, urged Obama to reject changes that “would cut benefits, shift costs to states, alter the structure” of the programs or pare them for deficit reduction.

That stance perfectly captures the party’s contribution to gridlock. Even as Republicans agree to increased revenues through reducing deductions in the tax code, Dems reject any changes to entitlements. So, who is really playing chicken at the fiscal cliff?

That so much attention is focused on whether Republicans will agree to tax hikes reveals mainstream media bias and Obama’s efforts to distract attention from the frightening dimensions of his fiscal folly.

Even if he gets his tax hikes, he would collect at most $90 billion a year, and that assumes growth would not be affected. What spending cuts is he prepared to demand from his party as part of a deficit-reduction deal?

So far, the answer is zero, a number that corresponds to the chances that Dems will govern responsibly.
