<quoted text>Just a thought, but if I were being stalked by a pervy-looking dude with a gun (ok, so maybe I wouldn't have known that immediately), I might not have wanted him to follow me home where my little brother was home alone...are you suggesting that Trayvon should have totally out of the gated community in which he was living?(I admire your desire for transparency in you politicians--when did Rmoney sent you a copy of his tax returns?)
If you were walking through a housing complex where you didn't live at nighttime when it was drizzling and you knew you probably looked like you didn't belong there and saw a resident watching you who was on the phone and assumed the police was on the other end, would you hang around and wait for the resident get in his car and drive to another part of the complex to ambush him or get the hell out of there?

Why didn't Martin go straight home the minute he saw Zimmerman on the phone while he was still in his house?

Once he left the complex, he would no longer look like he didn't belong there because, technically, he didn't.

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!

No he hasn't . He told the police "tell my wife I shot him"
He told Hannity he wouldn't do anything differently, that it was Gods plan.
Maybe he said that because he wasn't the one who died that night and wasn't the one on top during the attack?

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.

were they racists in IRELAND who was the white group and who was the BLACK group the IRA or the loyalists we are so stupid, governments divide the people no matter what thats how stupid racism and bigotry is this same case have happened in every country in the WORLD the profit in america is between the too oldest groups in AMERICA POOR WHITES vs POOR BLACKS they use SHARPTON and LIMBAUGH to set the stage racism lolololhahahahaha
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!

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.

<quoted text>Are you saying when a person feels threatened, their legal response should be to retreat?
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.

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.

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.
