Oh you poor misguided child. The Republicans didn't take us off a surplus and put us into debt on their money! It was ours.
Oh you poor misguided child, the Republican plan included tax cuts (paid for or not). Obama's plan only includes raised taxes (or fines, whatever the hell you want to call them) and still incurs the same amount of debt.

1) Trayvon was had gone to the store & was walking home. That's not "running around".
2) Rules for citizen patrols for Neighborhood Watch are: "Citizen Patrols
An effective tool for some Watch programs to use is a citizen patrol. It is up to the community in conjunction with law enforcement to decide whether a patrol is needed. Citizen patrols are volunteers who walk or drive an area on a regular basis to report incidents and problems to the police and provide a visible presence that deters criminal activity. They have no policing powers, carry no weapons, are nonconfrontational, and always coordinate activities with law enforcement."
NO policing powers
carry NO weapons
are UNCONFRONTATIONAL
Coordinate with law enforcement i.e stay in the GD truck as told.
3) Zimmerman syaled Martin.
4) When Martin asked why Zimmerman was following him, he should have said Neighborhood Watch.
It was raining. Shouldn't he have hurried home instead of hanging around and drawing attention to himself with seemingly no sense of purpose being in a strange neighborhood?

Martin didn't have time to say anything. He apparently reached for his phone to dial 911 again after being confronted and was punched to the ground and beaten.

The gun was in his back. How could he have shot Martin in the heart if Martin was on top?
The jury women were dummies
This was the silliest argument by the prosecution.

First, the gun was likely in back, but toward the side. Necessary for concealment, since Florida doesn't permit open carry.

Second, in a struggle everything gets moved around.

Key players in the IRS scandal are to testify again.

CNN-The Republican National Committee released a video this week that accused the Obama administration of dodging responsibility. It included footage of IRS officials testifying before congressional committees, edited to highlight when they said they didn't know or were unable to remember details.

"Americans deserve answers to why their First Amendment rights were so egregiously violated," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Turning a blind eye and claiming not to know, or remember, what actions were carried out is no excuse for targeting individuals based on their beliefs. These are simple questions, and if they can't answer it raises another: what are they hiding?"

...What are they hiding, indeed.

Meaning a medical doctor, M.D.?
Galt is not taking sides here, except against sub-professionals practicing medicine.
Same with non-degreed technicians calling themselves "engineers."
I'm not taking sides here either. I just recall reading that Zimmerman's Family Doctor made a report up regarding his injuries.
The Medical Examiner at the Zimmerman Trial sounded no more professional to me than a Professional WalMart Travel Agent.

Professionals are paid and shuffled in and out of courtrooms every day for and against the Defense and Prosecution. Professionalism can be easily purchased.

Beyond this, I believe that a Professional Seal Of Approval no longer means what it used to. Perhaps some of this perception is subjective as I have aged and acquired wisdom while shedding my junior naivete. But, still, Affirmative Action means that just about anyone can become a 'Professional' anything. Been there, done that, as I went through portions of academia and business innocently with my eyes and ears open. I came out the other end with a *REAL* eye-opening education.

I do not consider Eric Racist Holder to be a 'professional' by any stretch of the imagination and the Magic Negro hides every scrap of his Affirmative Action float to the top. The term 'Professionalism' has been reduced to a common usage like a "Professional Escort" or "Professional Politician". It has no meaning beyond marketing.

The proof is in the pudding now. You will know professionalism when you see it. A piece of paper and a waddle across the stage with the NAACP waving at you from the front row is just a PC sham.

I disagree. Documented speeches and videos of politicians backing up your arguments is very helpful. Posted these videos myself many times. Problem is liberals refusing to click on the link and continuing to deny what they can easily learn for themselves if they were willing to be proven wrong.
That's always been the problem.
Much of it edited, without your knowledge.

You don't HAVE to be a dumbass.
Encouraging people to waste time and money pursuing worthless degrees by dangling low-interest loans is the government's fault, regardless of which party is in office.

The loans have added impact because the schools have no incentive to control costs.

Then watch this video and tell me again about getting your "news" from O'Reilly:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =Yn7_8QL2weQXX
That's all you got? That's all Maher had?

The claim originated with a Nov. 2 Press Trust of India article quoting an unnamed "top official" in the government of Maharashtra (one of India’s states). The source was quoted as saying that Obama’s upcoming trip to Mumbai will cost $200 million per day for security and living arrangements among other things. The story claimed that the president would be accompanied by about 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, government officials and journalists, and will stay at the Taj Mahal Hotel.

http://www.factcheck.org/2010/11/ask-factchec...

So what? Commenting on what has been reported is not the same as reporting the news. A 3000 person entourage to India is nuts no matter how much it cost.

For those fond of nanny-state government, these programs should be required to have the students sign a waiver stating that they understand that the degree offered is of absolutely no value except as wallpaper.
