I have no desire to support those with no will to support themselves.

I think its cause my daddy used to take me down to meet his friends in the park. They smelled like stale laundry and smoke, would give him money, and then touch me in funny places. I didnt understand it then, but I've grown to love it now.

You really live in a fantasy world.
And how many under performing union employees were kept on for years if not until retirement to the determent of the company that they worked (used loosely) for.

California is becoming two states; those who can afford to pay the taxes and the moochers. The middle class is leaving town.

The only attraction is the beauty and the weather.

You are AGAIN letting your emotion cloud the legal facts. Zimmerman had every legal right to do what he did without being attacked,and he WILL be acquitted. Besides, you never answered my question: given as Martin was smashing Zimmerman's head open, would you press murder charges against the kid if he had died?
Regardless of the Boy Messiah's evil intentions, we still have an enforceable Constitution.
