Does the constitution state anywhere that," a group of people, no matter the race, can't where their pants having off their ass or, anything of a dress code anywhere? No! You're dumb enough to mistake everyday wear for job employment clothing. Ignorant enough to believe that, black folks are ignorant enough to not know how to dress when applying for a job or, going to a job interview! Your bigotry is appalling!
Your post had to do with just making up the rules as you go, and applying them subjectively.
We have a Constitution specifically to avoid that medieval concept of government, dufus.

The Constitution is the rule. Do we have to fight ANOTHER war over that?

I think teachers were being blamed for the unquestionable failure of our education system that was changed from the best in the world to the most expensive in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world, and has a record of a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement.

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.
The state claims that two minutes were unaccounted for, where did you hear four minutes? According to Zimmerman's statements Trayvon could not have seen George outside the truck until seconds prior to the confrontation.

But wait, the resident witnesses were drawn in by loud arguing voices prior to the gunshot. I guess George forgot about the arguing eh?

<quoted text>lol! You are such a historical contortionist, son!
You forgot to answer the post. I'll help you. Here it is again:

Let's go over US history again:
In 2003 the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program. All necessary legislation was put in place then.
Compounding this idiocy, the Democrats took over all oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse in January, 2007, coincident with the year the effect of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program began to have negative effects on the economy.
After two years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed our economy.
Prior to the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program, the world invested in US real estate mortgage industry because it was a foregone conclusion that... you may need to write this down... history proved that Americans always paid their mortgages.
The Democrats changed that perception of America.

That was before the Gosnell case and a liberal movement now demanding abortions at any stage of development.

Abortion involves more than one life. And informed decisions are a common sense approach in any medical procedure.

Most liberals are just too easily manipulated. Sorry to say.

This is nothing more than an attempt to divert the attention of the American people away from what our government is doing, no different than the Snowden drama epison invented by the government to divert everyone's attention away from the unconstitutional acts of the government.
Only right wing crazies talk about it son. They keep trying to beat a dead horse... probably because they have nothing else to beat!

However, I think your article made a very good point about our criminal justice system..."Once you are labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits, and exclusion from jury service are suddenly legal." THAT is what is wrong with our system of "justice" and THAT is what needs to change. IMO, once a person has served their time and is off probation or parole, their record should be expunged, automatically. How can we expect people to get a new lease on life and have and have a promising future if we continue to punish them for something they did in the past? It's just wrong.
No.
If you choose to commit a crime, and you are convicted of that crime, the public has every right to assume you are, and will always be a criminal.
It's up to that criminal to convince the public that they have reformed.
And, convincing them of that may take a very, very long time.
They had their "due process of law". Just because they were released from prison doesn't mean everything should be like they never did it. There is a social penalty to pay, as well as a government penalty.

Findings released Monday by Pew Research Center showed a massive divide in the public's reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman along racial and partisan lines.

The survey found a split to the verdict overall: 39 percent said they were satisfied that the jury found Zimmerman not guilty on all counts in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, while 42 percent said they were dissatisfied.

The divide can be seen even more starkly when the responses are broken down by race. For example, a whopping 86 percent of blacks said they were dissatisfied with the verdict while nearly half of whites 49 percent said they were satisfied. Democrats and Republicans were divided on the question, as well. Sixty-one percent of Republicans said they were satisfied with the verdict, compared with 68 percent of Democrats who said they were dissatisfied.

A slight majority of Americans, including 60 percent of whites and 68 percent of Republicans, said that race drew more coverage in the Zimmerman case than it deserved. Blacks and Democrats, not surprisingly, saw it differently. Seventy-eight of blacks and 62 percent of Democrats said the case raised important issues about race that need to be discussed.

The defense attorney stopped his closing arguments for a solid four minutes to prove the amount of time Trayvon had to go back to where he and his father were staying.

Abortion, at least short of infanticide, is a losing issue for the Republicans and a diversion from the Obama scandals.

Are you working for Obama?
