Barack Obama, our next President

The great sadness here today is that American culture shows The Crips crashing a Christmas Play in Middle America and someone forgot to hire Security for the night.
Something is bound to happen and it won't be a Silent Night.
It's not the first time for such, it probably won't be the last one either.
Really it's kind of just more political "backwardness of 50 years" by wish- they were- like- Martin Luther Kings types.
(Except they ought to be listening and trying to implement what King was REALLY saying).

From a nicely presented article:

Americans who marched on Washington 50 years ago under a blazing sun recall the day they were part of a turning point in history..

Interviews by Michael A. Fletcher
Photographs by Stanley Tretick
Designed in scroll kit
Videos by Ryan R. Reed

Ken Howard, a D.C. student working a summer job at the post office before entering Howard University in the fall, took a bus downtown to join a massive gathering on the National Mall.“The crowd was just enormous,” he recalls.“Kind of like the feeling you get when a thunderstorm is coming and you know it is going to really happen. There was an expectation and excitement that this march finally would make a difference.”

Only a few months before, in that electric atmosphere of anticipation, 32-year-old singer-songwriter Sam Cooke composed “A Change Is Gonna Come,” the song that would become the anthem of the civil rights movement.

The potent symbolism of a demonstration at the Lincoln Memorial—timed to coincide with the centenary of the Emancipation Proclamation and following President John F. Kennedy’s announcement in June that he would submit a civil rights bill to Congress—transfixed the nation. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom also catapulted 34-year-old Martin Luther King Jr., who set aside prepared notes to declare “I Have a Dream,” into the realm of transcendent American orators....

"Even civil rights leaders profile.“There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,” Jesse Jackson said several years ago,“than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” Jackson now says his quotation was “taken out of context.” The context, he said, is that violence is the inevitable byproduct of poor education and health care. But no amount of “context” matters when you fear that you are about to be mugged."

The world is aghast over Trayvon Martin. The U.S. needs to look at itself
Only protest from the public ensured that Zimmerman was tried for killing Martin at all. Only protest from the public has ensured that this killing has been seen through the prism of race. Yet to an outsider, it is obvious that Martin died because he was black, and that Zimmerman walked free after killing him for the same reason.
he was tried to quiet the racist mob that was leed to believe zimmerman was white, the case never went b4 a grand jury because there was no evidence to support an indictment and he was proven not guilty in a court of law . Zimmerman was not released because he was white , if you look at him you may notice he is not white.. if travon was white this would have never hit the news..

Yes, Obama underestimated the underhandedness of business owners. The amazing thing is that these neglectful, selfish business owners only represent about 10% of businesses. I would have expected the number to be much higher.
Your identical sister, Helen Thomas, died today--may she burn in hell. Thomas is to be buried in Detroit-same as hell. LOL. All Arabs who hate Jews end up in one place or another.

This month, the Senate will consider whether or not to reconfirm Fred Hochberg as head of the Export-Import Bank (Eximbank).

Eximbank is a little known "New Deal" federal agency that either loans money directly or "guarantees" loans to American businesses to support those business' overseas ventures.

If the company cannot pay back the loans, the taxpayer picks up the tab.

Loans made, or guaranteed by, Eximbank are inherently risky and market-distorting, since Eximbank's charter forbids them from "competing with the private sector."

Instead, Eximbank uses taxpayer funds to "assume credit and country risks that the private sector is unable or unwilling to accept."

You read that right.

Eximbank's whole purpose is to use YOUR money to support projects that could not get support from banks and private investors!

In 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama called Eximbank "little more than a fund for corporate welfare" that should be shut down.

But instead of shutting it down, President Obama has worked to expand Eximbank, using it to reward his corporate cronies and putting taxpayers even more at risk.

For example, in 2012, the Boeing Corporation received $12.2 billion in loan guarantees from Eximbank - which accounted for 82% of Eximbank's loan guarantees!

General Electric is another example of a wealthy company that benefits from Eximbank's taxpayer-funded "generosity."

In 2012, GE received over $1 billion in Eximbank loans - even though GE made over $150 billion in profit that year!

Eximbank even finances projects used to shut down American manufactures and open up plants overseas.

Clearly, the American people would be better off if Eximbank were shut down and the money returned to American entrepreneurs, workers, and families.

Call your representatives and tell them Obama as a senator said they should be shut down and ask where the idiot stand on it today.

You know, Tonto read your post again and he decide it not wrong what President said. Law not work when armed men can ambush unarmed men, or the powerful kill the less powerful, and then walk away. Defeat whole purpose of law. George Zimmerman must suffer consequences of doing wrong thing, one way or other. It take courage for President to call it like he sees it. Tonto think you may have been too long without comic foil for extensive and impressive fact-gathering.
Well, it's not uncommon for me to be on opposite sides of those I like. It happens. It doesn't change the respect I have for you or Yeah. We just see things differently on this particular issue. That is OK.

I held back my judgment on the case until all the evidence was presented. I was determined not to prejudge. Since all I have to base my judgment on is the evidence presented in court, I am left with no choice but to agree with the jury (and most all the experts in the field) that Martin was the one who "ambushed" Zimmerman through concealment and the element of surprise. IMO, Trayvon at 6'2" was the more powerful of the two. Things ended badly but I don't fault Zimmerman.

Is there a grey area? Of course. There can't be any black and white when one of the parties involved is dead. But, it's all we've got. I kept expecting the prosecution to bring forth some character witnesses for Trayvon....anything to prove he wasn't a trouble maker with a chip on his shoulder toward white authority figures (or a wannabe authority figure in the case of Zimmerman). It didn't happen. Even a lifetime of being treated disrespectfully and discriminated against doesn't justify acting out violently against someone who is just following you. It just doesn't.

That said, I am disgusted by the comments of many of the racists cons on this thread. I'd like to see people who call African Americans "monkeys" or "savages" exiled to another country. That might go a long way toward racial harmony.
