The world is aghast over Trayvon Martin. The U.S. needs to look at itself

This is one of those moments when the US – and its great ally, the UK – would do well to take a long look at itself. Zimmerman’s right to kill in “self-defence” does not contrast well with Edward Snowden’s fear of retribution. By exposing the fact that the emails of the citizens of the land of the free (and ours here in Britain) could be plucked from the internet at the state’s leisure, wasn’t Snowden too defending himself, his fellow citizens, and the idea of the US and of liberal democracy? But no reluctance to arrest Snowden is evident.

We are told that this is all for our own protection – the fight against terrorism is an important part of the state’s protection of its monopoly on violence. Yet, not for the first time in these troubled years since 9/11, one wonders how the US can have pretensions to being the world’s policeman, when it doesn’t even police its own citizens with impartiality. And one wonders how the US can believe that part of its purpose is to be a beacon of democracy and freedom throughout the world, when it clearly believes that it should be able to spy on the private lives of the world’s citizens with impunity.

If the Martin case were “just” about racism, then that would be grotesque and awful enough. But it’s even more basic than that. It’s about the fragility of freedom, and how imperative it is that one person’s freedom, like one community’s, and one country’s, cannot be pursued at the expense of another’s. Zimmerman’s freedom to get on with his own life has been won at the cost of another man’s annihilation. The disregard of the idea that all US citizens have an equal right to freedom and protection could not be made more painfully obvious than this. A monopoly on violence is a terrifying monopoly to hold. It should quite definitely not be shared so casually with self-appointed men from the neighborhood watch.

You have a mental disease called "think you know it all, dumass!" You're telling me about a drinkin which was created in the hood. A place that you stay far from but, I'm in everyday. You don't even know how to sell the promethizine so how can you tell me about the drink? You don't even realize, you proved yourself wrong. It's called "purple drank" because, when you mix it with Sprite, it turns purple. If you mix promethizine with a watermelon soft drink, would it turn purple? Sprite is the most popular mixture but, some people prefer GingerAle. Get your facts right!

*The Lord's Prayer*

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
THY WILL BE DONE,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom
and the power
and the glory,
forever and ever.

Amen †

Five years ago the price of gasoline briefly spiked above $4/gallon, for a couple of months. You lefties couldn't stop shrieking about how BUSH/CHENEY were obviously getting rich off of it.

What was the price of gasoline when Lord Obama took office? Oh yeah. Less than $2/gallon in some places.

It's been above $3/gallon since the Gangsta in Chief took office.

Now, I know that aside from creating a hostile business environment (which the Gangsta seems to be gifted at), the president can't do much to set the price of gasoline.

But where's Princess Pelosi and the rest of the cretins? Why aren't they howling now?

Rand Paul Aide Resigns After Confederate Views Stir Controversy

Hunter, a self-professed "Southern Avenger," came under fire after the Washington Free Beacon reported on his pro-Confederate views. Hunter, who co-wrote Paul's 2011 book, has said Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth's "heart was in the right place" and that he "raise[s] a personal toast every May 10" in honor of Booth's birthday. He also has worn a Confederate flag mask during public appearances.

Paul defended Hunter in an interview with The Huffington Post's Howard Fineman, calling his aide "incredibly talented," but acknowledging that his racially charged writings were "absolutely stupid."

Sonic,
The jury followed the letter of the law.
The case was riddled with reasonable doubt. They can't bend the rules just for Trayvon.
But I will say this though; the black community has shown a lot of solidarity over the Martin killing.
Hopefully you can keep the momentum going and focus your energies on the cycle of violenece that grips the black community from within.
You gotta stop whuppin' your kids, Sonic. That would be a productive place to start.

No Codeine in the toxicology report.

How about in Zimmerman's drug test? Oh, that's right. He didn't get one. I guess gunning down a black kid in Florida gets a pass but running one down doesn't. Makes perfect sense.
