A teenage friend of Trayvon Martin was forced to admit today in the George Zimmerman murder trial that she did not write a letter that was sent to Martin's mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with Martin moments before he was shot.
In a painfully embarassing moment, Rachel Jeantel was asked to read the letter out loud in court.
"Are you able to read that at all?" defense attorney Don West asked.
Jeantel, head bowed, eyes averted whispered into the court microphone, "Some but not all. I don't read cursive."
It sent a hush through the packed courtroom.
Jeantel, 19, was unable to read any of the letter save for her name.
That is truly saddening.

SHAME ON YOU---Newark AND Patterson should be closed down-NOW--for crudding up the Hudson and because you all STINK! Uh gasp gasp--may the ghosts of a thousand Mohican smallpox blanket fibers infest your armpits!
Now, you were saying something about being a mindless, empty bobbleheaded r-oboTIC? Oh HELL no-never was, never will be!
Okay stupid, I'll just tell you. Geographic land mass Vineland New Jersey. Now look on the internet & try & find something to say about Vineland. Meanwhile you just prove how much you truly know yourself. Your just dumb. Did you forget that you responded to a post about global warning, dumass? Alzheimer's kicking in?

Maybe you're the one who's out of the loop. Political immaturity often prevents gaining a well-rounded perspective. Monkey see, monkey do is common among those so easily influenced by what is perceived as popular and cool.
You, too, will one day grow out of that phase and be able to think for yourself.
So with your great perspective, when was CRA repealed son?

But Jean from Queens and Dumbass Dave would say that there is nothing in that biography that states that Lieberman was never a registered Republican.
Joe Lieberman was the GOP answer to Vermont's Bernie Sanders. Lieberman ran a a 'Reform Democrat':libertarian on social and economic issues ,but Big Government GOP on war issues.

You keep telling yourself that and repeating it like a good little parrot.
I have no opinion about Deen other than she was raised in the south and can't help her heritage or her party affiliation or the southern democrat mindset decades ago.
But when someone voluntarily admits to wrongdoing 30 years ago and even if they say things that raises eyebrows because of who they are and where they came but then apologizes for it, their life should not be ruined.
Why was Robert Byrd forgiven when he was in the KKK and did a heck of a lot more to black people than racial slurs and not Paula Deen?
You keep repeating CRA son.

So when was it repealed?

Not a problem.

carol....3 million viewers....58,167,260 Republicans voted for Romney....so as much as you'd like it to be otherwise, very little influence from the GOP PR network beyond those who need right wing talking heads to do their thinking for them.

All three former Presidents advising President Obama on Snowden? Would imagine "the club" has his ear.
Nixon revealed President Clinton took his advise and was the most open of the President's Nixon advised.

Lack of IRS scandal is beginning to get to the republican tolls :-)

At a House Ways and Means Committee hearing on Thursday, the person now running the IRS told lawmakers that groups whose names include a "diversity of political labels" were among those whose applications for tax-exempt status had experienced delays.
