Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Trayvon Martin probably had a "fight-or-flight" frame of mind the night he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, Dr. Ben Carson said on "Fox News Sunday."
Carson, speaking to host Chris Wallace from Sun Valley, Idaho, said youths who grow up in inner cities experience the world differently than those who grow up "in a gated community in Palm Springs."
"You have a situation where you have a young black male walking home, not doing anything incorrect, and he ends up killed, and nobody suffers any consequences," Carson said.
"On the surface, that would appear to be a gross miscarriage of justice. Those of us in leadership positions need to be looking for things that we can take out of this situation that will be helpful, not things that inflame the situation. Let's tone down the rhetoric and recognize that we the people aren't each other's enemies," he said.
While the trial is over the republicans seem off the "where is his birth certificate" message and on to endless Zimmerman rehash.

Acorn seems dropped and failed republican scandals seem the theme for their next convention?

TSA Selling Out Security for a Profit?

The government is expanding the ways airline passengers can enroll in an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belts and keep laptop computers in cases at security checkpoints.

Under the Transportation Security Administration's Precheck program, only travelers who were members of the frequent flyer programs of some air carriers were eligible for expedited screening. On Friday, TSA Administrator John Pistole said beginning later this year U.S. citizens will be able to enroll online or visit an enrollment site to provide identification, fingerprints and an $85 enrollment fee.

About 12 million people are currently enrolled in the program. Pistole said he expects about another 3 million people to enroll before the end of the year.

Profiled teenager.

7:16 pm --- Gun shot heard on 911 call.

George Zimmerman killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

7:17 pm --- First police officer on scene.

These facts too hard to understand?

Someone protecting their neighborhood doesn't deserve to get the snot beat out of them for doing so either and then screaming for help long enough for seven neighbors to call 911 to send help.

Especially when the neighborhood has a high crime rate for robberies and Trayvon fit the profile of the perpetrators.

It was a tragedy. A tragedy of misunderstandings. But misunderstandings can be resolved without resorting to violence.

Zimmerman is the only one who had physical injuries.

George Zimmerman’s not-guilty verdict had nothing to do with Stand Your Ground, right?

Wrong.

The wording of the self-defense law appeared in the jury instructions, and it was discussed by jurors, the defense and prosecutors in court.

So, therefore, Trayvon Martin’s shooting had everything to do with Stand Your Ground, right?

Also wrong.

There’s a good chance Zimmerman might still have walked even if Stand Your Ground had never become law in 2005. At most, without Stand Your Ground, the jury would probably have hung.

Here's a good rule to follow. Don't start a fight with someone just because they didn't tell you who they are. Americans have the right to be armed, and you could get blown to hell, especially if you start bashing their head against a concrete sidewalk.
Here is another good rule.

Never throw the first punch, regardless of how much the other party "gets in your face" or verbally "disses" you.

Throw the first punch and Galt will own your house.

That's ridiculous. The "fight or flight" instinct happens in just seconds. Trayvon had 4 minutes to think about confronting Zimmmerman. He could have "flit" to where his father was staying in just 20 seconds long after he first made eye contact with Zimmmerman on the phone and after he first ran off.

So why didn't he just keep running?

Because the liberal media told you not to think about that. That's why.

Horrendous
We are back to "the liberal media" yarn again..standard faux talk
LOL

Notice this on website..an outrage

A Norwegian woman at the centre of a Dubai rape case dispute has been pardoned and is free to leave Dubai, she has said.

Interior designer Marte Deborah Dalelv, 24, was on a business trip in Dubai when she says she was raped in March.

She reported the attack to the police, but was charged with perjury, having extramarital sex and drinking alcohol, receiving a 16-month prison sentence.

The case has angered rights groups and the Norwegian authorities.

Ms Dalelv had had her passport returned and was free to leave the country, a Norwegian official told the BBC. She was not being deported, and was expected to return to Norway in the next few days.

The designer, who has been staying at the Norwegian Seamen's Centre in Dubai since she was sentenced last week, told the BBC she found out she was to be freed earlier on Monday during a meeting with public prosecutors.

"We came in and we sat down and they told us 'You've been pardoned'. It's from the ruler of Dubai. It's from him personally so that's - it just feels unbelievable - it's a very, very good day."

So, the 7-11 was at least 52 minutes (6:24 to 7:16) from wherever Trayvon was crashing, at least two or three miles?

The first thing Zimmerman said after the shooting is "I screamed for help but no one came." When he was told his screaming was caught on a neighbor's cellphone, he said, "Thank God!"

If his intent was to murder Trayvon, why scream for help? Especially when Zimmerman had no way of knowing it would be heard in the background of a neighbor's cellphone? In fact, numerous neighbors called 911 because "someone is screaming for help."

The liberal media manipulates the easily manipulated to further this administration's liberal politics far too easily. That's why.

Nothing that Zimmerman might have said or not said would justify Trayvon's physical attack.

"Vaginal probe" was coined by Rachael Maddow to describe a sonogram. She got blasted for not knowing the difference - or intentionally trying to mislead.
Leave it to the liberal media to succeed in brainwashing their loyal minions.
When you require a sonogram before a certain time in the pregnancy, it requires the use ofd a probe to get the details needed..

Try to keep up for a change.
