Where the hell do you get your information from? If you listened to one of the jurors, the entire jury was convinced Zimmerman had every reason to be, and was, in fear for his life.
But, keep watching those propaganda shows. It's sometimes fun to point out the obvious, that you are an ignorant, indoctrinated dupe.
Some people may call that an idiot.

It's laughable! How can a group of old white menseriously claim racial tensions between 2 minority groups, in which they individually only lay eyes on these 2 groups passing by in a car? Talk about exploitation of a tragedy! Meanwhile, on the real side of things in America, this melting pot with potential of true greatness, we need to figure how to keep the 2nd amendment but, limit the exposure of guns in society. The fact that Zimmerman had 2 felonies taken off his record ( which would've prevented him from owning a gun) because, his daddy is a Jew ex-judge is ridiculous! It's crazy that in this country, folks care more about gun possession than, the future of our youth. Trayvonm Martin serves as a sacrificial lamb for the argument that our gun laws conflicted. The person with no criminal record was profiled as a gangsta, grown enough to go to prison for the rest of his life but, not old enough to have a gun license but, the guy whom should've never been able tohave a gun can legally own a gun, shoot & kill an unnamed teen & get away with it, it's ridiculous. Laws need to be changed or, don't cry & complain when there's uprising & anarchy!

Just as Eisenhower, the 34th president, pulled troops out of Korea and avoided other military adventures, Mr. Obama has pulled out of Iraq, is leaving Afghanistan, has limited intervention in Libya largely to airstrikes and has resisted being drawn directly into the civil war in Syria.

Mr. Obama’s inner circle includes some Eisenhower admirers. Mr. Hagel bought 30 copies of a recent book on the former president’s handling of the 1956 Suez crisis to distribute to fellow administration officials. Denis R. McDonough, the White House chief of staff, cites Eisenhower’s emphasis on planning.
Eisenhower kept his hand hidden while still speaking regularly with reporters. He held news conferences an average of every two weeks. Mr. Obama, by contrast, gives interviews to select organizations, but has far fewer day-in, day-out interactions with journalists than his recent predecessors, and therefore avoids being asked about many issues of the moment.

I see you Democrats are still practicing racism against Hispanics. At least you are finally showing your true colors.

This bizarre fixation you have with silencing the opposition is most concerning.
You do know what happens when the few elite decide what the masses can hear?
If the liberal media were doing its job, Fox would not be such a threat to the underpinnings of overthrowing democracy to replace it with a one-party government-controlled welfare state.
Wise up. You're on the wrong side of the fence. And the wrong side of history. It will not be kind to you.
Using "straw-man fallacy - AKA Aunt Martha -
You misrepresented someone's argument to make it easier to attack.

By exaggerating, misrepresenting, or just completely fabricating someone's argument, it's much easier to present your own position as being reasonable, but this kind of dishonesty serves to undermine honest rational debate."

The Stand Your Ground law wasn't even part of this case. Florida is not the only state that has this law.
What if Trayvon Martin had been a white 17-year-old and Zimmerman still Hispanic?
Would you feel the same outrage under the same circumstances that led to this tragedy?
YES! Now you're getting the point dear ole fuddy duddy Carol. Street vigilante violence and 'Stand Your Ground' are NOT our American way of law and order and rights to a fair trial process. You ought to know that as you love reciting the U S Bill of Rights every time your guns feel threatened. Just apply your gun love to fellow feeling love for the young and women too.

Perhaps you have a suggestion, then.
Here's the post again for your convenient reference if you feel like responding to the content:
If you want welfare, why don't you just write a welfare bill instead of hiding it in every other piece of legislation you can find.
I've got an idea for the name of the bill. We'll call it the "Welfare Bill".
How's that?
Yes I have a suggestion, get a grownup to read my post to you:

Thanks again teabaggers ... I especially like that part where the welfare is "made permanent". Fuggin liars!

The Farm Bill & ‘Libertarian Populism’
Can the GOP be pro-worker and anti-government? A bill that showers subsidies on agribusiness is the opposite.

One step forward, two steps back. The Republican Party is like an alcoholic in recovery, with periods of sobriety punctuated by long, destructive benders as it once again falls off the wagon.

In June, a critical mass of House conservatives helped vote down a nearly $1 trillion farm bill that merged all the protectionism and cronyism that dominates modern agriculture policy with the worst excesses of the food stamp program.

Republican leaders were reportedly very unhappy, but the sweetheart deals for the sugar industry and federal crop insurance program are two corporate welfare programs that are totally counterproductive for the taxpayer. Moreover, while it may make political sense to link food stamps and farm subsidies, the economic justification is less obvious.

Defeating the bloated farm bill gave Republicans an opportunity to separate these spending items so they could then trim and reform them both. Without nutrition programs for the poor making up 80 percent of the price tag, welfare for Archer Daniels Midland would receive more scrutiny.

So naturally, Republicans followed a moment of clarity by taking a nasty spill off the wagon again.

Last week, the House passed a farm bill containing all the agribusiness largesse of the one it voted down in June. In fact, the crop insurance program and the sugar subsidies were made permanent. But there was no money for food stamps, combining a fiscal disaster with a political one ...
