MARIA BARTIROMO, HOST: Any thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict?

CHARLES BARKLEY: Well, I agree with the verdict.

BARTIROMO: You did.

BARKLEY: I feel sorry that young kid got killed, but they didn't have enough evidence to charge them. Something clearly went wrong that night. Clearly something went wrong, and I feel bad for anybody who loses a kid. But if you looked at the case and you don't make it - there was some racial profiling, no question about it. But something happened that changed the dynamic of that night. And I know, and that's probably not a popular opinion among most people, but just looking at the evidence I agree with the verdict.

I just feel bad because I don't like when race gets out in the media, because I don't think the media has a pure heart, as I call it. There are very few people have a pure heart when it comes to race. Racism is wrong in any, shape, form. There are a lot of black people who are racist too. I think sometimes when people talk about racism they act like only white people are racist. There are a lot of black people who are racist. And I don't like when it gets out there in the media because I donít think the media has clean hands.

BARTIROMO: I think youíre right. Iím glad you made that point.

BARKLEY: I donít think the media has clean hands. And, like I say, I feel sorry that young kid got killed, but judging by the evidence, I don't think that guy should have went to jail for the rest of his life, because something happened bad that night obviously.

BARTIROMO: Yeah, I liked what one of the jurors said. She said they both should have walked away.

BARKLEY: Yes.

BARTIROMO: And if thereís a shadow of a doubt, thereís a shadow of a doubt.

BARKLEY: And let me say, Mr. Zimmerman was wrong to, he was racial profiling.

BARTIROMO: Absolutely.

BARKLEY: What I think Trayvon Martin, God rest his soul, I think he did flip the switch and start beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman. But it was just a bad situation. And like I said, the main thing I feel bad for, it gives every white person and black person who is racist a platform to vent their ignorance.

BARTIROMO: Right.

BARKLEY: You know, thatís the thing that bothered me the most because I watched this trial closely, and I watched all these people on television talking about it. A lot of these people have a hidden agenda. You know, they want to have their racist views, whether they are white or black,

BARTIROMO: The bias comes out.

BARKLEY: The bias, it definitely comes out. It was a bad situation. We all lost. And I feel bad for his parents. You don't ever want to see anybody lose a kid.

Moments after approving a new law legalizing gay marriage in England and Wales, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain unleashed a blistering attack on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for ďlacking the gutsĒ to do the same.

The British monarchís brutal evisceration of Gov. Christie stunned observers, who did not know that she was such a close follower of his gay-marriage stance.

ďI donít like to badmouth people,Ē she said.ďBut Iím the head of a monarchy that began in the ninth century, and Iím apparently more modern than Chris Christie.Ē

After shocking observers with her opening salvo, she continued to tear Gov. Christie to shreds.

ďLook, I know he has to appeal to the crazy right wingers in his party,Ē she added.ďBut the fact is, heís not as forward-thinking as an eighty-seven-year-old lady who wears a crown on her head. Itís pathetic.Ē

Asked if she had advice for Gov. Christie, the British monarch said, bluntly,ďJust sign the damn bill, Chris.Ē

Responding to a reporterís question about the upcoming royal birth, Elizabeth replied,ďTell you the truth? Iím just glad the kidís not being born in New Jersey.Ē

Today's IRS congressional hearing witchhunt:
Washington (CNN)-- The inspector general who reported Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups said Thursday that he didn't have information until last week that the word "progressive" also was on a list of criteria for extra scrutiny of tax-exempt applications.
At a hearing of the House Oversight Committee, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said the information that liberal groups also were probably targeted only came to him July 9.
His audit, released in May, cited criteria including "tea party" and other conservative-themed words or labels that were used to decide whether applicants for tax-exempt status should come under further review. Since then, an investigation by the panel turned up documents that showed IRS workers also were told to look for the liberal-themed label.
"They were not provided during our audit, even though similar documents that list quote 'tea party' unquote but not 'progressive' were," George said. "I am very disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset, and we are currently reviewing this issue...."

I liked this editorial by Graham J Noble.
IRS lawyer Carter Hull told congressional investigators that his superiors informed him that the chief counselís office, headed by Obama-appointee William Wilkins, needed to subject certain applications to additional review because of potential political activity. It should be noted that no left-wing organizations had been subjected to this scrutiny.
The common refrain from this administration, in every situation, is that the people at the top of the ladder are, somehow, always completely unaware of decisions made by their staff.
It begs the question; why does the US government even have an executive branch when, by its own contention, it makes no decisions and is not, in any way, involved in running the country?
An additional question might be; why is anyone reading the mainstream media, when they constantly refuse to report on some of the most important political issue of the day?
The American people should be asking themselves; if the previous Presidentís administration was so directly culpable in every event that damaged the nation, then why is the current Presidentís administration so completely detached and uninvolved?
...That's what I ask myself every single day.
You mean... now you're going to skip the hearing AND rely on editorials instead to make your political (and not necessarily factual) points?!?!?!

<quoted text>That's not so, what the family and many others wanted was an arrest in order that the event play itself out in the courtroom and not the back room. The SYG law was introduced by the police department as it's basis for cutting George loose rather than booking him and letting a judge make the decision.
Pay attention___we've had a first hearing judge and then three others. George has had two sets of attorneys, the first set held a press conference to proclaim that George had established a collection-website and then disappeared and was not returning their calls.
We learned that George's pal Mark was steering him around early, advising against Hal Uhrig and promoting Mark NeJame. We learned that NeJame couldn't get involved as one of his partners was married to the first judge assigned to the case. NeJame recommended O'Mara and the judge had to recuse herself anyway because it was learned that NeJame was in bed with O'Mara too.
Enter Judge Kenny Lester who has no use for Zimmerman, his family and probably O'Mara. Lester hikes George's bond to one million $ because he lied, Shellie lied and it was learned that George had two passports. Brokeazz George who's running from creditors and has over a hundred grand in pay pal loot also has two passports. Hah!
O'Mara claims he had no earthly idea that George had been shuffling big money around via Shellie on the jail house phone and gets a huge pass from Lester because the former lawyer, Uhrig knew all about the loot.
Are you following along here? Probably not because you're too fkn stupid to keep up or you just don't like details.

It's really pretty simple. Besides the Treasury Department, there are 14 additional executive branches that make up the Cabinet.(The Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health & Human Services; Homeland Security; Housing and Urban Development; Interior; Justice; Labor; State; Transportation; and Veterans Affairs. None of these 15 department is the President directly involved in running. That is not his job.
