In a show of support, I'm lately wearing a hoodie with a bullet hole in the front.

Across the chest is written "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon".

I love it.

Government divides no one. Bush never played the card race as Obama's white police "acted stupidly" or Trayvon Martin would look like his "son", plus thousand other more evidence.

Nope, you are WRONG, government divide no one!

The ONLY ones dividing the nation is the LIBERALS.

Democrats divide us into voting groups; blacks, gays, illegals, women, etc.

Conservatives only see one color: the color of freedom and liberty!

"back porch turd"
I have to note you did not comment on the 100 million pissed away on president nobama's family vacation to Africa. Also even with the sequester spending is higher this year and the year before.
And if you think our government is a sweet running entity you are even dumber than any sane person thought and that is mind boggeling.

I'm saying that when a person is walking through a housing complex where they don't live at nighttime in a drizzling rain and they don't look like they belong there and someone who does live there thinks the same thing, the normal reaction is to leave as fast as possible.

Who hangs around waiting to attack a resident who obviously believes you're the one in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Majority Leader Harry Reid charged on Thursday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has “broken” his promises to consider President Barack Obama’s executive branch nominations, as the Nevada Democrat prepared to move forward with the “nuclear option” to change Senate rules.
Reid filed cloture on a bloc of seven Obama nominees on Thursday afternoon, setting the stage for a potential vote on invoking the nuclear option on Tuesday. If Republicans continue to filibuster any or all of those presidential selections, the Nevada Democrat will force through his proposed rules change, he told reporters.
Reid’s nuclear option comes in two parts. It would require a simple majority to change Senate rules, rather than the 67 now needed. And it would mean that a filibuster on an executive-branch nominees could be ended with only 51 votes, rather than the 60-vote threshold now in place.
Works both ways, starting in 2015.

Sequestration is the only way to restrain Obama's runaway spending.

LOL. You have a short memory. The Troubled Asset Relief Program was Bush's baby.
We were talking about zero interest rates and quantitative easing.

Get with the program, dummy.

TARP was a mistake, by both Bush and Obama.

Obama is a distributor of wealth, also commonly known as a socialist. People can try to deny it all they want but the proof is in the pudding. He eased restrictions on wealth fare recipients basically eliminating the work requirement which allows them to continue freeloading off working Americans. He wants to give amnesty to the millions of illegal undocumented immigrants further driving this country into the ground and into debt. Now he's trying to take away our guns, ensuring that if our homes are invaded we won't be able to protect ourselves. He said he wouldn't raise taxes, but he let the Bush tax cuts expire which basically raised taxes. You liberals are clueless, even with all that, you still praise this man. No wonder this country is going tits up, you crazy liberals are making America unrecognizable!
Free housing, free food, a check every month. Who'd want to go back to work?

Some employers are wondering why job openings are not filled.

No need to wonder. Some people are living a pretty good life doing nothing while the middle class is working and struggling just to get by.

It's Obama vision of a fundamentally transformed America.

When you say you hear right wing nuts, does this mean you constantly have your head in the crotches of right wing men?
I'm dealing with an uneducated, underdeveloped juvenile here so I simply need to be very specific when asking for clarity.
Is that where all the intelligent information from right wingers come from son? Their crotch?

I guess we know where you're coming from now, don't we?

And yes, please be specific. Otherwise we may think you have no idea what you're talking about... as usual!

If only Martin had gone home.

The police eventually agreed to meet Zimmerman in the part of the complex where the attack took place.

But why didn't Trayvon keep walking and go home?

Wish someone could answer that.

If Saint Trayvon had behaved like a human being and had not been kicked out of school, he would have been safe at home with Mommy.

Or so they would have you believe.

School officials in Carmel Clay, Ind., said they lost $300,000 last school year because students are rejecting the healthy menu changes brought on by First Lady Michelle Obama’s federal lunch regulations.

“I’ve had a lot of complaints, especially with the little guys,” said Linda Wireman, a food service director for North White School Corp.“They get a three-quarters cup of vegetables, but if it’s something they don’t like, it goes down the garbage disposal. So there are a lot of complaints they’re going home hungry.”

Amy Anderson, the food service director for the school district, said the rules made her feel less like an educator and more like a “food cop.” The changes have even made her consider retiring early.

Lori Shofroth, Tippecanoe School Corp.’s food service director, said many students are throwing food away, putting a dent in the district’s budget.

“They’re teaching our kids with this meal pattern that it’s OK to throw away,” she said.“We did a waste study on three different schools, and there was a huge amount of waste. That was just with produce, fruit or vegetables or milk.”

Other students don’t eat the lunches at all, resulting in a $300,000 loss for the district.

“I’ve got kids who can stop at Panera and pick up a sandwich that meets none of these criteria. We're not maybe your typical school district, and they’re assuming that every student doesn’t have access to food, and that’s incorrect in this community,” Amy Anderson told the paper.“Our kids can just wait and just hop in their BMWs and go to McDonald’s, which they’re rebuilding, making it bigger.”

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner released a statement on Thursday afternoon apologizing to city residents, hours after he was accused of sexually harassing numerous female employees.

"I begin today by apologizing to you. I have diminished the office to which you elected me. I have reached into my heart and soul and realize I must and will change my behavior," he said in the DVD.

Earlier Thursday, three high-profile San Diegans described sexual harassment allegations involving “numerous” female employees of Mayor Bob Filner who were subjected to “unfortunate and reprehensible circumstances” but refused to reveal victim identities or details of the alleged behavior.

Filner continued, "As someone who has spent a lifetime fighting for equality for all people, I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them.

"I am also humbled to admit that I need help. I have begun to work with professionals to make changes in my behavior and approach. In addition, my staff and I will participate in sexual harassment training provided by the city.

"Please know that I fully understand that only I am the one who can make these changes. If my behavior doesn't change I cannot succeed in leading our city.

"In the next few days, I will be reaching out to those who now work to those who now work in the Mayor's Office or have previously worked for me - both men and women - to personally apologize for my behavior."

Filner then said that residents have every right to be disappointed in him.

"I only ask that you give me an opportunity to prove I am capable of change, so that the vision I have for our city’s future can be realized," he said.

The attorney representing the women who claim Filner sexually harrassed them said he will not comment until Friday, saying he wants to speak with clients first and find out if they are satisfied with this apology.
