As usual, he confuses the issue. Talking about the Stand Your Ground law and "what if Trayvon had had a gun..." when the Stand Your Ground law wasn't even introduced in this case.
He has no idea what he's doing or even what he's saying.
I want this president to be forced to resign. The sooner, the better.
This lawyer President is not a lawyer nor a President.

He is a fool smoking on a dynamite train and laughing about it.

What a liar. You're so tone deaf to reality you can't see it. This is the lead in to the story that you left out so you could turn your post into a lie because your ideology can only stand on the support of lies:
"Today marks six months since the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya in which four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Some watchdog groups, members of the media and Republican members of Congress are asking:"
You see that? CBS was reporting the news, not making it up like you're used to on Fox.
You obviously need a remedial course in reading and comprehension.

If you actually READ that article, you would have been able to comprehend CBS News clearly reported their OWN frustrations in trying to get more information THEMSEVLES about Benghazi and the survivors an clearly stated the White House all but told them to kiss off.

And that CBS News THEMSELVES tried to get information through the Freedom of Information act without any success.

But here, try this.

See Spot run.
See Jane run.
See Spot and Jane run.

Now who was running?
A. Spot.
B. Jane.
C. Spot and Jane.

I think it would be a phenomenal experience for you and I hope you follow your dream. Island people are different and you might be surprised at how accepting and inclusive black islanders can be.
Do it Carol, I'd admire you for doing so.
But, yes, Lily, I'm sure I would find island people accepting and inclusive. It wouldn't be a surprise though because that's why I'd want to go there. Too many blacks here look at me like I'm a southern democrat plantation owner.

And accuse of me of being a racist.

I absolutely understand that. One must think about the root sources of crime; if we are going to continue to create an entire subculture of felons, then crime will increase. People have to eat and if doors are continually closed to people by the only legal way to totally discriminate against a person, then we get nowhere.
If people have a job and a place to live, then they will be less likely to commit crimes.
They don't understand, it's not about race, it's about opportunity. Homer grew up poor and while I am not suggesting I can relate to being a black person in America but it's a fcking struggle when you are poor. I cannot even imagine being a poor black person, not much to look forward to.

Benghazi survivors sign 'keep mouth shut' NDAs...
"According to trusted sources that have contacted my office, many if not all of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks along with others at the Department of Defense, the CIA have been asked or directed to sign additional non-disclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks. Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer."

They're protecting "Israel". Duh! Just like "Israeli double agent" "Edward Snowden". Only point the finger at the "U.S.", never ever Israel.

Evil WalMart...
"...Wal-Mart boasts that “75% of its store management started as entry-level hourly associates, and they earn between $50,000 and $170,000 a year — similar to what firefighters, accountants, and even doctors make.” And similar to what an assistant professor earns at Princeton University —$94,000 — and many Wal-Mart managers make even much more than that."
hahahaahahah! Store manager earning more than a Professor.....
http://www.aei-ideas.org/2013/07/wal-mart-des...
The store manager works a lot harder.

Or maybe not...he just sits in his office, confident that his department managers are doing a great job, without checking up on them.

Profiling is a common sense survival response. Period. No racism involved.
Fool me once, shame on you.

Profiling saves innocent lives.
Coming from someone known to say dumshit, I shouldn't be surprised!
It's not racist to profile an ethnic group for the crimes committed by a small percentage? So, even without using your ideology as a launching pad, you're a racist but, using your ideology, all black people should view all white people as racist! Is that what you're telling me? You sir are a moron. The fact that you feel the need to dispel or, crime what's racist & what's not, proves your racist nature without question.

And then they vote for Obama who doesn't really care one way or the other about them except to exploit their own problems instead of help them find solutions, keep them dependent on democrats and get their vote.
