Until yours for first degree murder? Some how, flack, I don't think you'd be pleased if Tracey Martin took to vengeance for HIS son...but I think he'd have the same right.(BTW, there's no need to call me names, "father of the year," even Bill O'Reilly condemns rape, rape/murder victims for wearing provocative clothing and being out on their own...apparently "they caused their own death"s just like Trayvon.) Are you understanding any of this?

<quoted text> Making people work for free is called slavery. Thought you libtards were against that sort of thing. The free market system has done more to raise the standard of living of more people faster than any other system invented by man.
But let's take your theory one step further. If health care should be free then why not food? I mean if you don't have food then you won't need health care very long. Or a house? Or a car? Or a computer? Or a phone? Hell, here's an idea. Why don't we all just get up and go to work wherever the government decides it needs us to work. They keep all the money and they get to decide what you can and can not have. Have any idea what form of government that is HOMER?
Free home, free food, no class distinction, work to pay the government...we'd be North Korea.

Is this really the America liberals want?

TUCSON, Ariz. A Tucson, Ariz., police officer has been fired after authorities say he pulled a gun on a gas station attendant while off duty and apparently intoxicated.
The Pima County Sheriff's Department notified Tucson police that 23-year-old Kyle James McCartin was arrested early Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault.
Deputies were called to a Giant Gas Station and learned two men who appeared very intoxicated entered the store wearing bulletproof vests.
Authorities say one of the men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the clerk twice.
Deputies found the men at a nearby apartment complex and the clerk identified McCartin as the man with the gun.
This is what we get when standards are lowered.

Time and time again, it has been pointed out to you that lawsuits only affect the cost of healthcare by one half of one percent.
The costs of healthcare are high because of greedy insurance companies who want to make a profit out of a business that should not be a "for profit" business.
The wealthy do not have to use Medicare if they don't want to. They can purchase any policy they want, who is stopping them?
Healthcare is expensive because everyone isn't covered. It's not free to go the ER like Mitt said.
You make no sense at all. Everyone being covered brings costs down, costs will come down even further without insurance companies; single payer through taxation is the way to go and hopefully we will get there soon. This is the beginning and Hillary will finalize the program when she becomes President and the Democrats control both houses.
It's the combination of practical and common sense solutions to bring down the costs of health care.

You're not interested in any of them.

If you think Obamacare is still a good idea, you're in the minority - of your own party.

Now, given the overwhelming evidence that Zimmerman stalked Trayvon, causing Trayvon to defend himself. How can Zimmerman then claim self defense?
The fact that you think you know the meaning of such a simple word as stalk & no one else does, really raises question on you definition of knowledge!
In reference to you, a stalk is:

a : the main stem of an herbaceous plant often with its dependent parts

From a criminal perspective though....

Hey NJ Racist. I suspect you are too lazy to open the link, so here:

Stalking

Fla. Stat. 784.048. Stalking; definitions; penalties.(2012)

(1) As used in this section, the term:

(a) "Harass" means to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person which causes substantial emotional distress to that person and serves no legitimate purpose.

(b) "Course of conduct" means a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, which evidences a continuity of purpose. The term does not include constitutionally protected activity such as picketing or other organized protests.

(c) "Credible threat" means a verbal or nonverbal threat, or a combination of the two, including threats delivered by electronic communication or implied by a pattern of conduct, which places the person who is the target of the threat in reasonable fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her family members or individuals closely associated with the person, and which is made with the apparent ability to carry out the threat to cause such harm. It is not necessary to prove that the person making the threat had the intent to actually carry out the threat. The present incarceration of the person making the threat is not a bar to prosecution under this section.

(d) "Cyberstalk" means to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.

By the way, PAs are not clerks. They often share the same status as physicians in the eyes of the medical profession depending on their specialties.

They are actually quite trained if that makes you feel any better. And treating many illnesses becomes rather routine.

When Galt is ill enough to waste time on a medical visit, Galt wants a physician who knows he is the best and charges accordingly.

Dedication and self-sacrifice are no substitute for competence.

Many of the best physicians are arrogant bastards, but so what?

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.
Really stupid? Just how were anyone's 1st Amendment rights violated? Nobody was prevented from presenting their views liar. The First Amendment right to free speech doesn't include the right to a tax exempt status. But go ahead Carol keep reminding us everyday what a truly clueless twit you are.

Yeah, I was going to mention that yesterday but it slipped my mind.

Apparently, some unions wrote a letter to this administration very unhappy that Obamacare is going to hurt "their" employees.

The National Rifle Association blasted Eric Holder for using the George Zimmerman case to attack "stand-your-ground" laws, accusing the attorney general of exploiting Trayvon Martin's shooting death for political gain.
