Galt believes that nuclear energy must be a large part of the future.

Solar and wind are little more than supplementary sources.

Biomass is a joke, like ethanol.

You are speculating. We don't know who the "victim" is. Zimmerman has claimed he acted in self-defense which makes him the "victim". No one can say for certain that, should he be alive, Trayvon wouldn't be charged with a crime. All any of us can do is sit back and watch the presentation of evidence. Jumpiing to conclusions based on media reports is not justice.
"We don't know who the "victim" is."

"should he [Trayvon] be alive ..."

Funny shit.

The "judge" is trying to portray Trayvon as a saintly child in order to railroad Zimmerman.
Let's hope the jury has more sense.
But if the jury is majority black, Zimmerman is finished.
WHAT WE as a people NEED to DO ...
IS bombard THEM with ADS or something, ever how WE get to the MASSES of peeps ...
and DEMAND he be "LET GO" ...

The man WAS only DEFENDING himself after having his head BEAT INTO THE CONCRETE by a THUG ...

And PAID back ALL the "contributions" he has received!
PLUS $$$ for "malicious prosecution" ...

LET them BURN their homes, neighborhoods ... etc.

WHERE would they go THEN!?!

WE are BROKE!

There were 2256 suspicious absentee ballots during the Democratic "primary" race__those ballots were not counted and an investigation tied "most" of them through a e-trail that ended at the Joe Garcia campaign.
There were also some yet to be divulged irregularities in the general election where Joe Garcia defeated a true Republican POS David Rivera.
Looks to me like the system worked__the suspect votes weren't counted and it surely doesn't appear to have been part of some grand scheme to reelect the POTUS.
How many times have you been out of the loop old man and called others liars drooling in your soup and had to be proven wrong Realtime and brought up to snuff by Carol to get your diaper changed??

<quoted text>You hypocrite. I remember when you were on another forum promoting abortion, suicide and pulling the plug on comatose patients. Kinda remarkable considering you say you're against the death penalty for convicted murderers but, then, what else should we expect from a radical, leftist extremist who has watched WAY too much Star Trek socialist shyt?
I'm pro-abortion up until a certain point in the third trimester and then only when the life of the mother is in danger or something has gone wrong with the pregnancy/fetus is severely deformed

if you are talking about Terri Schiavo, yes I am for the husband having the right to make that medical decision. BTW the autopsy showed that her brain had atrophied to about 75% of a normal brain size.
so yes I am for allowing love ones the option of pulling the plug on brain dead patients when its only machines keeping them alive

HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO TAKING PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT VETS SUFFERING FROM PTSD FROM OFFING THEMSELVES???

WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU???

I'm against the death penalty because it overtaxes the system with appeals, waste millions of taxpayer dollars and because there have been too many instances where the condemned have been proven innocent

<quoted text>PTSD could become the kiss of death for not only veterans but for first responders and others engaged in stressful occupations.
A short bit of research shows that the different states take different views on what post traumatic stress actually is__syndrome__disorder__mental illness and so on.
Gun ownership is the least of the worries of those who could be condemned to a life of hopelessness if those who suffer some degree of PTSD become cataloged in the nations data bases. Custody of children comes quickly to mind but the potential for unintended consequences is enormous.
Realtime is correct, for a change.

But the problem goes much deeper than just PTSD, with the complete loss of privacy of medical records resulting from Obamacare.

Anybody would be a fool to seek psychiatric help, alcohol abuse treatment, or dug abuse treatment. Or to take their children for psychological counseling if having problems in school. Or to allow their children to be prescribed medication for ADD or similar ailments, something that would brand them for life.

Best to see a doctor using a false ID and pay cash to keep your personal information out of government hands.

Wake up. The government doesn't buy 22,.357, 30.06, 30.30, 9mm, etc. NRA is only interested in helping wealthy donors, gun/ammo manufacturers, get wealthier. That crap about the government buying up ammo is a smoke screen. A friend of mine is the police chief in a town in Tennessee with 50 officers and he told me that they haven't been able to target practice for months. The NRA created hysteria is putting public safety at risk as well as personal safety for those that can't find ammo, not to mention hunters next fall.
California will cause another run on ammo because the a-hole Democrat legislature is passing a bill to require a background check to purchase ammo, with a $50 fee attached.

Silly comparison because Saint Trayvon is dead and cannot be hurt by testimony about his drug use and gang activity.
However, to answer your question, it depends if the sex life is relevant toward determining the facts.
If the "victim" is a career prostitute, or has a long history of crying rape, and the case is "she said/he said" affair with little physical evidence, then the sex life of the "victim" is sure as hell relevant.
In the Zimmerman case, whether Saint Trayvon was a violent, drug-abusing gangbanger is sure as hell relevant toward whether he attacked Zimmerman.
Zimmerman has a criminal record, including assault on a policeman, and beating up an ex girlfriend. He was known to make racist remarks.

He sounds a lot like you, Nobraina. A racist punk.

Trayvon had no criminal record, he was a juvenile

I have to admit, I don't understand this "judge". His ruling that attorneys will not be allowed to mention Trayvon Martin’s drug use, suspension from school and past fighting during opening statements at the trial seems one sided. It is my hope that Zimmerman's attorney's will be able to show the "relevance" of Trayvon's past during the trial which will allow them to disclose his past. If not, I believe that should Zimmerman be found guilty, the justification for the verdict will be forever questioned or we will see an appeal based on the judge's ruling.
Of course, I disagree with your racist comment about the black jurors. They are just as capable of setting their predjudices aside as are whites. Using your logic, if the majority on the jury is white then Zimmerman is a free man. That's a sad commentary on where you believe America stands today.
Did you miss the verdict in the OJ Simpson murder trial?

career prostitutes can be raped.
as can a woman who has a long history of crying rape.

neither can be explored in court unless the defense opens the door.

One of the questions on the Application for Handgun Permit is:
"Have you ever been treated for psychiatric health care or an emotional or mental illness?"
No one is profiling Veterans. It is merely suggested that they not be granted an across the board exemption from background checks.
The operative word is "treated."

Worse yet, such requirements just discourage people from seeking treatment.

Thanks for your display of ignorance, punk.

----------

"PTSD – A Debilitating Mental Condition"

""PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) is a debilitating mental condition. PTSD sufferers may feel like they can never return to their normal self because of an inability to move past the distressing incident that triggered the trauma. Traumatized people whether affected by PTSD or not, have a higher tendency towards using alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, and towards developing Eating Disorders, OCD, and Dissociative Disorders.

In earlier times, beginning with the Civil War, PTSD was known as “Da Costa’s syndrome.” The anxiety disorder has also been known by alternate terms such as “battle fatigue” or “shell shock” owing to its link with military service. Now, it is understood that PTSD is not just a wartime disorder but can develop in anyone who has experienced or witnessed a very traumatic event. Events of this nature include kidnapping, rape or sexual abuse, plane/car crash, medical procedures, or neglect in childhood.""
