I have seen a lot of your rants on here.....
I must say: this one is refreshing from you.
It's not a bad idea: if we also sniff the rt wingers in Texas, AZ ETC......
USA holds no ground!
Even military bases get shot up here at home.
Shootings in cities, rural, parks, the beach for gd sakes!
Enough!
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.

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.

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.

... and then he was acquitted after the state's attorney withheld evidence from the grand jury, the judge joined the prosecution and ignored the Constitution, and the prosecuting attorney pretended to be an expert witness in street fighting to an all-women jury.

Everything was as you wanted, and Zimmerman was still acquitted.

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

<quoted text>Are you trying to say that "Blacks are eight times more likely to commit robbery"???
It's the culture...
As the largest racial group, whites commit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1.

Given this mathematical truth, would anyone encourage African Americans to begin shooting suspicious white males in their neighborhoods for fear that they'll be raped, assaulted or murdered? Perhaps George Zimmerman's defenders should answer that question. If African Americans were to act as irrationally as Zimmerman did, would any rationale suffice to avoid arrest?

Gang Stalking, An Overview

Many people ask, "Why would anyone engage in this kind of activity?". In order to answer that question, it's important to realize that the person who has decided to target an individual is not the person (or persons in this case) doing the stalking. This is known as "stalking by proxy". Those who have called "the hit" (so-to-speak) may be doing it for any number of reasons, including revenge, jealousy, or a desire to keep someone silent. It may be that physically harming a person is considered too extreme or too risky by the perpetrators. In fact, this kind of psychological attack can be a far more effective way to harm someone. It can completely destroy a person's life while leaving little or no evidence to incriminate the perpetrators.

Additionally, there are the reasons that the stalkers themselves engage in the activity, which have little or nothing to do with why the person may have been targeted in the first place. It is conceivable that the participants in the harassment don't even know why the person has been targeted, nor would most of these individuals have any personal stake in harassing the victim. But certain things are clear - this is an both an addictive behavior as well as a form of entertainment for the stalkers. From the expressions on the faces of some of the perpetrators who come face-to-face with their targets, there is a vicious kind of pleasure that they derive from bullying their victim. Clearly they like the feeling of being "in control".

Like our society's current obsession with "reality TV", this activity must inevitably gain popularity as the ultimate experience of "reality" entertainment. Such is the nature of the bottomless pit within the stalkers that thirsts, evermore, for greater and greater thrills. To the perpetrators, their targets are merely their prey, in a game that never ends. But make no mistake, whatever the reasoning behind it, this is a vicious and calculated hate crime.

This is for the benefit of the clueless judge-it...and me wanting to make them mad.)

Blanco botched Katrina by delaying a decision - by law - to allow the federal government to send in an ARMED National Guard.

Bush was not going to send in an unarmed National Guard to rescue victims when some of them were locked and loaded.

Blanco - and Blanco alone - "screwed the pooch" in preventing so many Katrina victims AND rescuing the people in her state who could have been saved earlier.

Hoodieman was not a child, moron. If you doubt that, just look at the photos he had on his mobile phone. Or, go back over the evidence where it shows Hoodieman pursued Zimmerman, attacked him, and was bashing his head against a concrete sidewalk when he got blown to hell.
Hoodieman was a drug-using dropout gangbanger wannabe, and that's what got him killed. He was in the highest risk category to get shot by some rival gang.

Maybe if his father has kicked his ass when he was younger, he would have not been involved in this episode. Perhaps Hoodieman was just acting out what his father taught him to believe.

Don't White People Kill Each Other, Too?

And yet we keep hearing about black-on-black crime because it fits the false media narrative.

When it comes to America's racial past and present, lies and snake oil are sold in many colors.

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, conservatives in media have sought to deflect from the racism and racial profiling that precipitated his untimely death by referencing the broader social malaise of supposed "black-on-black violence."

On last week's episode of This Week on ABC, Washington Post columnist George Will said that despite the Trayvon tragedy, "150 black men are killed every week in this country," and "about 94 percent of them by other black men."

Will parroted arguments made by many conservatives, his intended point being that black-on-black crime remains the real problem our nation should address. The half-truth he spoke went curiously unchallenged by the panel -- including former White House adviser Van Jones -- largely because the meta-narrative of black-on-black violence is widely accepted in journalistic and political circles.

Bill O'Reilly, the Fox News host and one-man propaganda machine, recently interviewed Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill to discuss similar claims from Wall Street Journal contributor Shelby Steele, who wrote in "The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin" that "black teenagers are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites." O'Reilly vehemently defended Steele's premise that the Trayvon Martin case is an anomaly.

"Blacks today are nine times more likely to be killed by other blacks than by whites," Steele wrote. He went on to attack the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for "exploiting" Trayvon's death in an effort to promote a "liberal" agenda -- a point that O'Reilly was all too happy to expound.

Steele's perspective, though myopic and misguided, remains pervasive and embedded in the broader social consciousness. This red-herring approach is not new, but in the face of Trayvon's death -- for which there remains no arrest, no charges and no arraignment -- these obstructive tactics require an equal and opposite response.

What Will, Steele and O'Reilly failed to mention is the exacting truth that white Americans are just as likely to be killed by other whites. According to Justice Department statistics (pdf), 84 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other whites.

On Saturday night, a Florida jury of six women found George Zimmerman not guilty of any crime in the shooting death of a black teenager named Trayvon Martin. Not murder. Not even manslaughter. A lot of people are having a hard time accepting this verdict, given that Zimmerman was armed with a pistol and Martin was not, and a police dispatcher told Zimmerman not to follow Martin, and he did it anyway.
It doesn't help that the same prosecutor who lost the Zimmerman case recently won a conviction against Marissa Alexander, a black woman who fired a warning shot to chase off her abusive ex-husband, hurting no one. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Twenty years for a warning shot against a known abuser versus no time at all for killing an unarmed teenager leaves you scratching your head and wondering if justice is not just blind but also insane.

That same states attorney will soon be handling The State of Florida vs Michael David Dunn who pleaded not guilty of gunning down Jordan Davis (a black teen) in a Jacksonville convenience store over an argument sparked by loud music.
