I'm not defending Martin or attacking Zimmerman, I'm correcting you lying idiots.
Pretty obvious to me.
And you've "corrected" me where? Every day more & more revelations about the thug trayvon's felonious habits emerge. If there IS a civil trial (which I highly doubt), EVERYTHING is admissible, so he wont be able to hide behind Angela Corey and the rest of the corrupt D.A.'s office anymore.

Its not looking good for your crusade, so now would probably be the time to switch sides (before the boat gets too far from the dock and you end up completely soaked).....:-)

The same treatment, but overseas? Like the Philippines?

That's new to me.

Unless you head east.

BTW, cosmetic treatment doesn't qualify.

2,000 photos from Trayvon's obama phone were not shown to defense attorneys, violating Zimmerman's Civil Rights, including pictures of underage naked girls pedophilia, images showing piles of jewelry on Trayvon's bed and photos of Martin blowing smoke.

Other items taken from Trayvon's obama phone included text-message discussions of drugs and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants.

Dangerous is good IF for the right purpose.
The Allies were dangerous to the Nazis.
Cops are dangerous to Hoodies.
George Zimmerman was dangerous to Saint Trayvon.
Simple. Basic. Easy to grasp.

Nevertheless, I didn't say y'all were dangerous. In fact y'all are more sissy than anything.

Well, first of all, Chicago is not Obama's "hometown". That would be Honolulu, Hawaii. That said, name one thing the Bushy boys did for Crawford, Texas while they were presidents. Bill Clinton for Hope, Arkansas? Ronald Reagan for Tampico, Illinois; Los Angeles or Santa Barbara? Jimmy Carter for Plains, Georgia? Etc, Etc, Etc. Other than generating business for the tourist trade, I can't think of one thing.

<quoted text>Basically stalking is to, follow someone stealthily from a predatorial position. Ring a bell?
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!
"Stealthily" rules out zimmerman stalking trayvon.

Well, let me present you with the same scenario which was presented to Homer and Lily.
What if a black man had noticed a white teenager acting suspicious in his neighborhood, called the police and then tried to keep an eye on his whereabouts before they arrived...and what if an eye witness saw the white teenager straddling the black man and beating him giving the black man a broken nose, lacerations on the back of his head and two black eyes...and what if the black man had screamed for help and, when help didn't arrive, took out his pocketknife and stabbed the white teenager in self defense.
Would you claim the black man acted in self defense or would you call him a racist whose only intent was to kill a white troubled teenager who was given the status of sainthood after such an attack?
Be honest.

It has to be a carbonated beverage, Sprite is the choice for lean along with jolly ranchers although skittles might do. The main ingredient of course is the codeine found in the cough syrup.

Arizona Watermelon or any of the Arizona products are non carbonated drinks making them worthless as a mixers. Beyond worthless actually for they would dilute the cough syrup.

There is a nutjob website called theconservativetreehouse which created that myth along with many other myths on the topics of race.

Incidentally the main contributor on that anon site calls himself sundance cracker.

Hah, art imitates life.

School boards are led by the nose by administrators, all former teachers....except perhaps when it comes to important issues like sports and band.
No child should be forced to take medication to attend school.
So, you have no proof, just another classic off-the-wall made up conspiracy.
I've served on a school board policy committee and we included policy that banned teachers from using ANY kind of force on students unless an emergeny arose that made it necessary to protect the safety of staff or other students. If you have an example of a board policy that was foisted on a school board then provide it.
It's absolutely incredible to me that any thinking person would claim that teacher unions could force parents to drug their students, which is what you claimed.

For a network that perpetually displays an “Alert” graphic regardless of whether they are reporting on a car bombing in Afghanistan or the opening of a Hooters in Tacoma, it is not surprising that Fox News’ hair-trigger Outrage Detector is stuck on “Apocalypse Now.” The standard facial expression of a Fox anchor at any given moment is an eye-bulging, jaw-dropping, sweat-dripping, fright mask of horror.

And so it was when the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine hit the streets. The featured story was about Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, with the headline “THE BOMBER. How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster.” Accompanying the story was a cover photo that has stirred more controversy than anything in the article. Many in the media, and particularly Fox News, condemned the photo as an attempt to glorify terrorism. There is just one problem.

The picture that has rattled Fox News so furiously is the same one that Fox itself used back on April 19, 2013, to illustrate an article on their Fox Nation web site (See Fox Nation vs. Reality for an in-depth examination of its relentless dishonesty). That was just four days after the actual bombing. So if it’s true, as Fox says, that the photo turns Tsarnaev into a celebrity; that it glorifies a notorious killer; that it encourages others to follow in his footsteps; then Fox is not only guilty of the same things, they beat Rolling Stone to the punch by three months.
