Race only matters to this administration when it makes white people and even "white Hispanics" - if you can believe it - out to be the bad guys.
Black on black crimes and hate crimes committed by blacks don't make it on their radar.
Even a white policeman trying to protect a black professor's home is considered in the wrong before knowing all the facts.
And Lily thought I was exaggerating when I said this president is all about payback. "GD America!" "I was never proud of my country before..."
Obama represents the black community and whites with enough white guilt who keep him in office.
The rest of us are going to pay dearly with Obamacare and less income for the working middle class for the sins of the past committed primarily by southern democrats - again, if you can believe it.
Obama should heed JFK's advise: "A rising tide lifts all boats."
Obama just doesn't get the "rising tide" part. He thinks some of us should be stranded on the shore so others can be kept afloat.
Or course, Obama might just need a course in macroeconomics. But I don't think that would make any difference. Not to him.
It's really not good where we are. But it's those who elected him that are the most concerning to me.
Zimmerman made it about race when he stalked and killed a black child. Him and him alone.

WHEN I SAY YES THEY SAY NO "Yes Set"
First, let me give you an example of distracting the left brain. Politicians use these powerful techniques all the time; lawyers use many variations which, I've been told, they call "tightening the noose."

Assume for a moment that you are watching a politician give a speech. First, he might generate what is called a "yes set." These are statements that will cause listeners to agree; they might even unknowingly nod their heads in agreement. Next come the truisms. These are usually facts that could be debated but, once the politician has his audience agreeing, the odds are in the politician's favor that the audience won't stop to think for themselves, thus continuing to agree. Last comes the suggestion. This is what the politician wants you to do and, since you have been agreeing all along, you could be persuaded to accept the suggestion. Now, if you'll listen closely to my political speech, you'll find that the first three are the "yes set," the next three are truisms and the last is the suggestion.

"Ladies and gentlemen: are you angry about high food prices? Are you tired of astronomical gas prices? Are you sick of out-of-control inflation? Well, you know the Other Party allowed 18 percent inflation last year; you know crime has increased 50 percent nationwide in the last 12 months, and you know your paycheck hardly covers your expenses any more. Well, the answer to resolving these problems is to elect me, John Jones, to the U.S. Senate."

Embedded Commands
And I think you've heard all that before. But you might also watch for what are called embedded commands. As an example: On key words, the speaker would make a gesture with his left hand, which research has shown is more apt to access your right brain. Today's media-oriented politicians and spellbinders are often carefully trained by a whole new breed of specialist who are using every trick in the book--both old and new--to manipulate you into accepting their candidate.

The Power of NLP
The concepts and techniques of Neuro-Linguistics [Programming] are so heavily protected that I found out the hard way that to even talk about them publicly or in print results in threatened legal action. Yet Neuro-Linguistic training is readily available to anyone willing to devote the time and pay the price. It is some of the most subtle and powerful manipulation I have yet been exposed to. A good friend who recently attended a two-week seminar on Neuro-Linguistics found that many of those she talked to during the breaks were government people.

AMERICA YOU DIDNT DO IT BY YOURSELF True Believers and Mass Movements
Before ending this section on conversion, I want to talk about the people who are most susceptible to it and about Mass Movements. I am convinced that at least a third of the population is what Eric Hoffer calls "true believers." They are joiners and followers...people who want to give away their power. They look for answers, meaning, and enlightenment outside themselves.
Hoffer, who wrote "The True Believer", a classic on mass movements, says, "true believers are not intent on bolstering and advancing a cherished self, but are those craving to be rid of unwanted self. They are followers, not because of a desire for self-advancement, but because it can satisfy their passion for self-renunciation!" Hoffer also says that true believers "are eternally incomplete and eternally insecure"!
I know this from my own experience. In my years of communicating concepts and conducting trainings, I have run into them again and again. All I can do is attempt to show them that the only thing to seek is the True Self within. Their personal answers are to be found there and there alone. I communicate that the basics of spirituality are self-responsibility and self-actualization. But most of the true believers just tell me that I'm not spiritual and go looking for someone who will give them the dogma and structure they desire.
Never underestimate the potential danger of these people. They can easily be molded into fanatics who will gladly work and die for their holy cause. It is a substitute for their lost faith in themselves and offers them as a substitute for individual hope. The Moral Majority is made up of true believers. All cults are composed of true believers. You'll find them in politics, churches, businesses, and social cause groups. They are the fanatics in these organizations.
Mass Movements will usually have a charismatic leader. The followers want to convert others to their way of living or impose a new way of life--if necessary, by legislating laws forcing others to their view, as evidenced by the activities of the Moral Majority. This means enforcement by guns or punishment, for that is the bottomline in law enforcement.
A common hatred, enemy, or devil is essential to the success of a mass movement. The Born-Again Christians have Satan himself, but that isn't enough--they've added the occult, the New Age thinkers and, lately, all those who oppose their integration of church and politics, as evidenced in their political reelection campaigns against those who oppose their views. In revolutions, the devil is usually the ruling power or aristocracy. Some human-potential movements are far too clever to ask their graduates to join anything, thus labeling themselves as a cult--but, if you look closely, you'll find that their devil is anyone and everyone who hasn't taken their training.
Unbelievable post. And also why it's scary.

We've been here before in the history books. Bad economy, charismatic leader, people looking for a savior to save them from themselves, willing to turn a blind eye to the ugly side of themselves by revering those who create the ugliness.

Like I said, unbelievable post but too close to repeating history for my liking.

Willful ignorance, blind loyalty and complacency are the three ingredients to a bad outcome.

History is the teacher here. I just hope we're not past the point of no return. The majority will determine if, in fact, we are the next time around. Perhaps Obamacare alone will wake up a lot of them - which is what many of us are hoping is the anticipated silver lining.

Dumbass used car dealer Realtime obviously does not realize that people cannot be arrested without probable cause, clearly lacking in this case.
The perjury job is a joke, just another example of malicious prosecution and intimidation.
Discharging a weapon inside the city limits is an arrestable offense in Sanford Florida___any charge would do for a prompt arrest and booking, even if only overnight as a thorough investigation could be conducted.

As it was George was treated like a friend of law enforcement while there was no serious attempt to ID the deceased. For that reason many in this area are steamed with the Sanford Police Department more so than Zimmerman.

Obviously you don't have enough information about the case to be taken seriously and beyond that you're a racist pos so not being taken seriously should not be new to you.

The wife's lies were all captured on audio, she was shuffling $135K around just days prior to testifying under oath that that she and George were basically destitute. There was also the issue of his second passport and the result was that Judge Lester raised Zimmerman's bond amount to $1 mil. placed him on curfew and on very tight travel restrictions. That was no joke!

What the hell are you talking about when you say "USA holds no ground"?

Military bases get shot up when muslim terrorists commit treason and start killing American soldiers, idiot.

Since the vast majority of murders occur in places like Chicago, and you clown are complaining about gun violence, how about we start enforcing existing laws where they are obviously being ignored and where they kill more people than are killed in a war?
I've got no problem finding people with illegal guns. I do have a problem with using that as a pretext to general gun confiscation, which seems to be increasing in frequency.

... now, back to the issue:

I've got a solution to the gun violence epidemic in this country....
The vast majority of the gun violence occurs in places like, oh, say, for example Chicago, where there already exists the most stringent gun laws in the country.
But, nobody is enforcing these laws. So....
The reaction of a trained dog has been ruled to be just cause for a search warrant over and over again.
Train dogs to find guns.
Patrol the streets of the south side of Chicago with these dogs.
Arrest anyone in possession of a firearm illegally.
Send anyone in possession of a stolen firearm to prison.
Problem solved.
What's wrong with this solution?

Bottom line: When it's obvious you don't even enforce existing laws in your own districts, nobody on Earth believes your intent is to enforce any new law.

Since your intent isn't to enforce any new law, just why do you want a new gun control law passed?
We think it's just a ploy to make Americans defenseless against the unconstitutional acts of the government... and criminals like you.

You'd first have to give me at least one example. I can give you three right off the bat of the liberal media distorting the truth and getting caught.

I'm talking about distorting the truth to promote the radical liberal's agenda sitting in the White House. Not a correction about a simple fact that was innocently misstated.

The Neurophone
Dr. Patrick Flanagan is a personal friend of mine. In the early 1960s, as a teenager, Pat was listed as one of the top scientists in the world by "Life" magazine. Among his many inventions was a device he called the Neurophone--an electronic instrument that can successfully programm suggestions directly through contact with the skin. When he attempted to patent the device, the government demanded that he prove it worked. When he did, the National Security Agency confiscated the neurophone. It took Pat two years of legal battle to get his invention back.

In using the device, you don't hear or see a thing; it is applied to the skin, which Pat claims is the source of special senses. The skin contains more sensors for heat, touch, pain, vibration, and electrical fields than any other part of the human anatomy.

Republican Judd Gregg, the former New Hampshire governor and U.S. senator, joined conservative columnists like the New York Times' David Brooks in urging Republicans to embrace immigration reform or face becoming a "permanent minority" in an op-ed published on Monday in The Hill.
Gregg's column, titled "GOP needs to step up to its role," stressed the importance of the two-party system to building consensus and being inclusive -- something oGregg wrote the party "is on the verge of abandoning."
"How House Republicans handle the issue of immigration will be a key test," Gregg wrote. "Can the party continue in its role as a national force for consensus and good governance in the near future? Or will it take an exclusionary path that will inevitably lead to it being a permanent minority voice?"
"If it chooses the latter course, it will have abandoned its large and critical responsibility to be a part of a reasonably well-governed constitutional system built on the need to reach consensus," he continued.

Gang Stalking, An Overview

Gang stalking involves the use of multiple individuals to stalk, harass and taunt a victim, as well as to vandalize personal property. This can take place for many years, particularly since law enforcement and legislation have yet to catch up with the reality of organized stalking by groups.

Techniques of psychological warfare are used against the target in a methodical and well orchestrated attack that often leaves the target a victim of ridicule among his friends and family because this occurrence is so hard to believe. However, the number of targets are increasing to the point that they can network with one another and find out that the same tactics are used everywhere. These tactics are intended to weaken the target to the point of physical and psychological collapse.

The reasons why a person is initially targeted can vary. Sometimes the person may be a political activist. Others may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Corporations apparently have even been known to hire these stalking groups to silence people who were once in their employ. These stalking gangs may be lied to about the target, thinking that perhaps the person is a deviant who needs to be driven out of town. The reasons are only limited to the imagination. In some cases, according to David Lawson, author of Terrorist Stalking in America, the person has done nothing wrong but is simply used as a practice target or as an example to others in the group to show what can happen to them if they anger the group in some way. This serves to keep the members of these stalking groups tied to the group through intense fear of becoming a target. It is such a terrifying prospect because the gang members are intimately aware that the lives of the targets are utterly destroyed
