How about this added in your closing sentence -
"...its just natural for most to gravitate to the party that has racism as a plank in their feeble platform."
Just my opinion.
I agree. That's why the Democrats are dominated by racial hatred. Trayvon Martin is an excellent example, as well as the so-called "protests" about his exoneration.

A jury of all women, to include one black woman, sitting in a court room adjudicated by a left-wing radical Democrat who ignored the Constitution, heard both sides of the story.
Their conclusion: You are a liar.

So, what racist riot are you going to join?

<quoted text>Where do you come up with this stuff?
How do you not come up with this?

The reason Travon Martin was shot was simply that he had been indoctrinated with hatred of white people his entire life. If he had been raised by a family, it is very likely this would have not happened, if you believe the statistics comparing young men raised by a family to young men not raised by a family.
All the so-called "protesters" are nothing more than the racists who hate white people because they are white.
Everyone here who refuses to accept the facts of the case are in deliberate denial because the facts conflict with your racially biased hatred.
Travon got killed because he had been indoctrinated in hatred of the white man only because of their race.

But, I'm inclined to believe he was in an extremely high risk category of being killed by some rival gang if he hadn't attacked Zimmerman and been shot then.

Rahm Emanuel

Quote:
Rahm Israel Emanuel (/&#712;r&#593;&#7 20;m/; born November 29, 1959) is an American politician who serves as the 55th Mayor of Chicago. A member of the Democratic Party, Emanuel was elected in 2011, becoming Chicago's first Jewish mayor.

Quote:
Emanuel's knowledge of the top donors in the country, and his rapport with "heavily Jewish" donors helped Clinton amass a then-unheard-of sum of $72 million.

Quote: Following the campaign, Emanuel became a senior advisor to Clinton at the White House from 1993 to 1998.[23] In the White House, Emanuel was initially Assistant to the President for Political Affairs[24] and then Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy.[25] He was a "leading strategist" in White House efforts to institute "NAFTA"[26][27] and "universal health care", among other Clinton initiatives

Meanwhile, having the afternoon off I tried my hand at carpaccio, sort of an Italian steak tartare. Wow, so easy and so good. The best variation on steak tartare though is the Japanese "yuke" which for some odd reason is found mostly at Korean BBQ restaurants. The absolute best yuke was at a Korean BBQ on the intersection of Route 6 and the access road for Fukushima.
Its gone now and the world is poorer for it.

So kind of a good news/bad news post.
I take my steak tartare toss em on the grill and make hamburgers out of em. Homer likes his food well done. But then Homer just simple folk, some would say simpleminded.

<quoted text>Funny how you went right to race...not funny ha ha, though. Really, Grampy, I thought you were better than this. "We have seen a number of viral e-mails, including this one, that inaccurately describe the circumstances surrounding the initial and final settlements of a racial discrimination suit brought against the United States Department of Agriculture.
Pigford v. Glickman was a class-action lawsuit brought in 1997. The suit, in which farmer Timothy Pigford sued then-Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, resulted in a court-approved agreement in 1999 to settle claims of discrimination that occurred between 1983 and 1997. But tens of thousands of black farmers missed the deadline for filing claims. Congress took testimony on complaints that inadequate notice and poor legal representation were to blame for the late claims and passed a law in 2008 that gave the late filers the right to have their cases heard on the merits. The 2008 law provided $100 million to settle the additional claims. Congress in 2010 appropriated another $1.15 billion. The second settlement came to be known as Pigford II.
This e-mail makes a number of incorrect conspiratorial claims about Pigford..." You guys really seem to believe every erroneous email, no matter how old or how many times debunked that the right-wing sends out. You're Limbaughtomy groupies...

George Zimmerman just walked away a free man, but the family of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old he killed, may still yet see Zimmerman on a witness stand.

The 29-year-old former neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted Saturday of all criminal charges in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen who was walking home from a convenience store.

Case closed? Not quite.

Zimmerman may still yet face a wrongful death suit from the Martin family, the family's lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

After O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder in the deaths of his ex-wife and her friend in 1995, the families sued the football star in civil court. A jury held Simpson liable for the deaths and awarded them $33.5 million dollars.

Though the victims' families received almost none of that money, many considered it a symbolic victory for them. They got to see Simpson try to explain himself under oath. They also prevented him from profiting from his notoriety.

To be sure, Zimmerman may also face federal charges, if the Justice Department thinks it can pursue hate crime charges.

However, a civil trial would offer the Martin family two big advantages: They might be able to force Zimmerman to testify, and the burden of proof is much lower.

To win in a criminal trial, prosecutors need to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Plaintiffs in a civil case do not have that burden.

"The standard of proof in a civil case -- by a preponderance of the evidence -- is much lower than the standard in a criminal case," Anne Bremner, a Seattle lawyer and legal analyst who has been closely following the Zimmerman case, told The Huffington Post.

Bremner has handled several high-profile civil cases, including those involving Mary Kay LeTourneau, a Washington schoolteacher who was imprisoned for having sexual intercourse with a student, and missing Utah mom Susan Cox Powell.

According to Bremner, additional evidence could be admitted in a civil case, and information about Zimmerman's prior run-ins with the law might be brought up. This would likely include the admission of a 2005 motion for a restraining order Zimmerman's ex-fiance filed, alleging domestic violence.

"You always get more information in a civil case," Bremner said.

While Zimmerman exercised his right not to testify at his criminal trial, a civil case could compel him to take the stand and explain what happened on Feb. 26, 2012 - the day he shot and killed Martin.

"Zimmerman will have to testify unless he can take the Fifth, as there are the possible federal criminal charges. But by the time of a civil trial, any federal charges should be resolved. And, there are plenty of areas of questioning that will not implicate the privilege. There is [also] the possibility of the judge giving an instruction that the jury can draw a negative inference from any invocation," Bremner said -- meaning if Zimmerman doesn't testify, the jury would be allowed to consider that absence in a negative light.

Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses

Quote:
The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany took place on 1 April 1933, soon after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor on 30 January 1933. The boycott was the first of many measures against the Jews of Germany, which ultimately culminated in the "Final Solution". It was a state-managed campaign of ever-increasing harassment, arrests, systematic pillaging, forced transfer of ownership to Nazi party activists (managed by the Chamber of Commerce) and ultimately murder of owners defined as "Jews". In Berlin alone, there were 50,000 Jewish owned businesses (almost 50% of all Berlin's private owned business) when the Nazis came to power. By 1945 they all had "Christian" owners.
