Barack Obama, our next President

Imagine seconds of BEATING ...

==========

The beating lasted until Zimmerman shot Martin.

How long was Zimmerman beaten before he fired his gun? One witness called 911 while the assault took place.

The tape of that call runs 38 seconds, during which a voice is heard in the background repeatedly screaming for help.

According to the caller, the screaming had prompted her to call 911.

How long the screaming lasted before she called is unknown.

But,

adding that time - however long - to the 38 seconds on the tape establishes that the *allegedly* trigger-happy, bloodthirsty Zimmerman had been pinned to the ground taking a beating for 38-plus seconds before finally resorting to deadly force.

By this measure, Zimmerman acted with great restraint.

Considering the stir he and/or President Jarrett created - directing NBC to create a racially charged case that didn't exist - I must say his little speech was quite nice.

A Michigan judge on Friday ordered Detroit's emergency manager to withdraw a federal bankruptcy petition filed on behalf of the city, Reuters reported.
State Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina ruled that the law allowing Gov. Rick Snyder (R) to authorize the bankruptcy filing was unconstitutional, according to Reuters. Aquilina ruled in favor of Detroit retirees and workers who argued the Michigan Constitution protected the retirement benefits in their city pension funds.

Well, that's the point about urban runoff. It can't go anywhere but into a storm drain. Not much exposed soil to enter into.

You must know a lot about St. Croix. But any island would do. Just picked that one out of thin air.

Anywhere where sane people still exist.

Elijah Cummings, for example...he might as well be from outer space as far as I'm concerned. Nuttier than a fruitcake. Cares nothing about the country. Just cares about Elijah Cummings and his and his party's lies and cover-ups.

I'm tired of living in the same country with so many dumb people.

From the comments on the speech by President Obama:

I do not like Obama one bit as President but I very much respect his reaching out on this sensitive topic.

Middle aged white guys like me have no understanding what it feels like to grow up black in America and, for many of us, the Zimmerman "not guilty" verdict is simple common sense -- the State failed to make its case.

By providing a personal context, the President has done a great service for the country.

President Obama
He's playing the Race Card again and losing more Americans in the process. Solidifying his racist base, yes. But losing to non-blacks who are tired of the skin games from the Racist-In-Chief.

Now...back to Benghazi, NSA, IRS, Fast n Furious, ObamaKare and his diplomatic failures abroad.

We've had enough diversion for this month.

The Race Card is dog-eared to a point that Jack is about to get his ass whupped for crying wolf again for the 10 millionth time in front of Liberal cameras on the Jesse Sharpton Dog & Pony Show....
I was once pulled over by a Detroit Cop for my bumper sticker during a Presidential Campaign. I was spread-eagled on my car's trunk at 4AM making me late for work. The cops had the wrong plate numbers. I was shoved into the back seat of a State Police cruiser by two black State Cops and told to shut up if I valued my life.
I was attacked while driving my car up to the P.O. Drop Box by some wacko street person. A passing cop pulled up and said to the guy "Jim! Get in the car and wait for me!". My car's hood and trunk sheet metal were dented and scratched because the guy walked across the entire vehicle stomping his feet. Bizarre.
Repeated calls to the P.D. got me nowhere. I finally gave up because that cop obviously knew Jim and was trying to protect him.
....and a long, long list of other Law Enforcement abuses.
But the Race Card crowd wants me to feel sorry for black males who are statistically the worst crime risks in all of America's melting pot. Profiling saves innocent lives.
Good post. Hope Lily read it.

Unions, Obamacare, and what the hell were Liberals thinking...

"In a letter sent to President Barack Obama on Thursday, Laborers International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan wrote that the law has “destructive consequences” for the types of health plans that cover millions of unionized construction workers and their family members."

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.

<quoted text> Why do you have to pretend. A Republican President George W Bush did just that after being delivered the Presidency in a High Court coup d'etat by the Scalia 5 in 2000. Bush lied about a 9/11 /2001 attack that left massive deaths of Americans on Saadaam Hussein of Iraq, then Bush ransacked his own Justice Department of any lawyers who refused to go along with the cover-up and lacked sufficient energy for targeting prospective liberals in government defined as enemies of the Bush Administration.
Bush had nothing to do with the SCOTUS' decision in 2000. It could have gone either way. They determined Bush had the most votes in Florida.

He lied about nothing concerning 9/11. Bite your tongue for thinking that. Bite it hard. Until you taste blood.

He lied about nothing concerning Iraq. Kick yourself in the butt for thinking that. Then kick it again.

This post made me very angry, so shut the hell up too while you're at it.

Obama is a liar whose lies are self-serving and manipulating to preserve his party's power. But you'd be the last one to say the emperor wears no clothes.

That makes you foolish AND stupid.

I totally disagree, there was nothing of the sort in his speech. To deny that racism exists doesn't solve the problem. Awareness and understanding of it does.
It was well received.
There are those who are so closed minded that they can't move forward and evolve.

President Obama
So, Obama, when he was followed in a department store, instead of confronting the follower, just went about his business. Apparently that's all it takes to keep from being shot. Sounds like a simple solution to me.

All of this legal tangle-wood was anticipated. There will be Liberal judges to appeal around, of course. That's life.
Schuette was ready and is appealing immediately. Every Union, Pension crook and interested party is going to sue, sue, sue and then sue again.
Rick Snyder and Kevin Orr knew this going in with eyes wide.
thinkprogress, the NAACP and the Magic Negro will of course try to get some mileage off of this in playing the Race Card, Partisanship and pure knee-jerk Liberalism.
Part of bankruptcy protection is to end litigation. The judge who made the ruling had three current pension lawsuits pending.
