When President Bush took office on Jan. 21, 2001, the S&P 500 stock market index stood at 1,342.54.

The day he left office, it was 805.22.

President Obama today it is 15,484.26

Republicans screw up the economy!

Nothing went wrong with the verdict. Whatever went wrong, went wrong in the childhood and upbringing of Trayvon Martin and the culture that fed him what it did.....and continues to feed future Trayvon Martins. Assess the Poverty Pimps, the Magic Negro, NAACP, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam,.......and fix the wrongs embedded in their twisted thinking.
Aside from this, if you truly wish to become sincere in fixing racism is America, may I suggest reading the mindset rising up out of the context of the Gettysburg Address? If you are too lazy to read it, let me provide it for you below.
As you read it, think in terms of Trayvon, George and the families hurt in all of this and to be hurt further by the mindless and violent threats of black media and citizens.
The last paragraph is most pertinent.
"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."
— Transcription of the standard text inscribed on the wall of the Lincoln Memorial, provided by the U.S. Library of Congress
Boy did you go off half cocked. We don't know that she was talking about the "verdict". She was calm and articulate. No hint of anger in her voice. IMO, what she meant was "what went wrong in America to get us to this point."

No matter how you try and spin it, America has a problem. When racist people on the thread think it is acceptable to refer to Blacks as "monkeys", we have a problem. Those people are the problem and THEY are the ones responsible for keeping racism alive. Get rid of them and then we might actually stand a chance of not perishing from the earth.

Real Dumbfück Dave still trying to make chicken salad out of more chicken shit you idiot...

The only way the jury came to their verdict, with the facts was to believe "ZIMMERMAN WAS THE VICTIM" you moron. Zimmerman can't be both the victim and instigator you moron...

The prosecution wasn't even going to bring the case before a jury because they said there was no case to bring. When the state said try the case anyway, the prosecution ended up winning the case for the defense.
Trayvon Martin was in the wrong place at the wrong time and, like many young black men, had anger issues. Another tragedy.
A 6 foot tall muscular young man is certainly not a "youngster".
Even the FBI at the behest of Holder could find no evidence of racial bias on the part of Zimmerman.
Do your homework before calling people a "stupid fk".

Trayvon Martin...."had anger issues."

How would you possibly know this?

......"like many young black men"

There is something about Z stalking the kid, killing him, getting away with it.

It strikes a nerve in folks.

The USA is armed up. It's crazy.

Is the NRA/GOP doing a thing about it? Hellll no!

Why are Americans armed so much: more than any other developed country.

Hey dooofus: we all know: 20,000 gun deaths a year in the USA!

IT'S NUTS!

You right wingers could do so much more: YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

<quoted text>Hey Jackass: In light of the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, on Friday we asked the following question:
“How many male, black 17 year olds have been shot and killed in Chicago since the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman shooting incident?”
The answer is 18.
18 male, black 17 year olds have been shot and killed in Chicago since 2/26/12. We’d wager that few, if any, could name a single victim or shooter.
Now let’s take the absurd to the extreme and cast a wider net:
First, include all races, 21.
Then add females, 22.
Throw in all causes of death, 24.
Add in all teenagers (13-19), 140.
And finally, expand the timeline back to 2008, 541.
541 teenagers have been murdered in Chicago since 2008 and except for maybe a few higher profile cases, no one could name them nor probably much cares.
-WTH.
Liberals don't care. Liberals don't care about Martin and they don't care about you. You are useful idiots following your script for fake outrage.

Another example of a fascist Democrat:

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued an ultimatum to Republicans on Monday to confirm at least seven presidential appointees or face a controversial rule change that could drain their power."

The Republicans could respond in kind in the House and we could watch our system degrade, thanks to the racist Democrat Harry Reid that was pleased Obama was a "Light Skinned NEGRO" "with no NEGRO dialect".

Then they must have much more power than we know, because that was a "world recession" and the economy still sucks after 5 years of your jive-ass punk Obama.

I have never been a person who voted along party lines. I did not vote for Obama. It was really the ugly hatefulness and obstructionist attitude of the Republican party. which began on the day of Obama's inauguration, that made me align myself with Obama and the left but I still keep an open mind.

OK, start spitting. Spit out some of those technological achievements of blacks
that led to the success of America's economy.
My point is that blacks want some kind of special recognition for
their part in the
history of the south and they want to take credit for success that was
not of their making. That is like my gardener and housekeeper taking
credit for my success.
Blacks were the workers not the movers. You don't see the Chinese who slaved
on the building of the railroads demanding special recognition. You
don't see the
Irish who were brought to the United States as indentured servants demanding
special recognition. But what you do see is that they have moved on
and become successful.
Immigrants to America built our country and black slaves were a very
small part of
its history. Get over it. If blacks spent as much time concentrating on their
education and personal responsibilities as they do demanding recognition and
special treatment, they would actually find themselves advancing
forward instead
of stagnating in their own self made ghettos.
In other words, stop complaining and get to work.(Quote unquote from USAsince1680).
* sure it is possible you didn't vote for O'bama in 2008 because he was black-but you voted for him in 2012.

Or would you feel more comfortable simply being called a liar?

Get rid of the Poverty Pimps, Magic Negro's and NAACP type organizations and it will go a long ways toward fixing the black racism in this country.
