Barack Obama, our next President

I ask because it’s not clear where the rabble-rousing rev’s agenda ends and White House policy begins. These days, they are one and the same.
President Obama erased the final distinction Friday by describing the Florida shooting case exclusively in racial terms. Obama’s headline-grabbing statement that “Trayvon Martin could have been me” and his attempt to justify black anger were straight out of Sharpton’s playbook.

Go get a tape recorder and scream for help like you're being murdered into the microphone.
Most people don't think their regular voices sound like them even on a telephone message.
You'd probably be surprised it was you screaming bloody murder too.
Not something you do everyday.
Look up "common sense". Do it right now. Hurry.
Your contention was that Zimmerman never said the screaming didn't sound like him, remember, Batty? I teach speech and drama in the Twenty-first Century, so I'm well aware of the difference of the recorded voice compared to internal auditory perceptions of the speaker without your lame attempt and condescension. I'm thinking maybe the eight commandment is going to send you straight to hell (according to your own contentions) and that might not be a totally bad thing, imho.

There's is definitely something wrong with you.
Forced ultrasound bills mandate a medically unnecessary procedure that would otherwise be left up to the discretion of a woman and her doctor. Medical experts, including the largest national group representing thousands of OB-GYNs across the country, are opposed to this type of legislation because they say it interferes with their work and compromises their relationships with patients.“All of a sudden, the Senate is full of doctors,” Wisconsin Sen. Tim Cullen (D) said in reference to SB 206&#8242;s advancement.
And, even though the lawmakers who push for mandatory ultrasound measures sometimes deny it, these laws also require many women to undergo an invasive transvaginal probe. Before 12 weeks of pregnancy, a transvaginal ultrasound is the only way to detect a clear image — and, since the vast majority of women in the United States seek abortion services in their first trimester, those women must submit to an invasive probe in order to comply with these burdensome laws. Over the past year, reproductive rights advocates have repeatedly decried transvaginal ultrasound laws as “state sponsored rape.”
http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/06/12/21...
Lily, read Wisconsin's bill.

Stop perpetrating these lies.

Think progress is lying to you and every liberal who willingly believes them.

The law does not state anything about a transvaginal ultrasound - much less a "vaginal probe" in Virginia either.

The word "ultrasound" is the word used in both bills. Liberals just decided to add their own interpretation.

Even if a woman seeking an abortion has to see that life first before making an informed decision - then so be it.

You liberals are becoming much too barbaric with your progressive liberalism mentality.

A woman should make an informed decision before going through with an abortion which is life-changing. In the case of abortion, life-destroying.

Why would you or anyone else possibly have a problem with that? Are you afraid she might just decide to keep the baby after seeing it?

Seriously. What's wrong with you liberals? I mean it.

Senate Democrats would have pitched a fit but you liberals made sure they kept their seats warm too.
We still have Obamacare which is even freaking out the unions, and we still have no tax reform, no Medicaid reform and no Social Security reform. Even though the Democrats know the latter two are not sustainable on their present course. But doing something to change all three could cost them votes.
Again, way to go.

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.
lol! You are such a historical contortionist, son!

The numbers tell the story of a criminal justice system blighted by racial disparities in drug law enforcement: African-Americans make up around 12 percent of the U.S. population, account for 33.6 percent of drug arrests and 37 percent of state prison inmates serving time for drug offenses.
The figures come from Human Rights Watch, a New York-based watchdog which complains in its 2011 report about “overwhelming racial disparities” in drug incarcerations despite the fact that blacks and whites engage in drug offenses at equivalent rates. The Sentencing Project, an advocacy group which has tracked disparities in the criminal justice system for the past 25 years, says the black-white gap cannot be explained by disproportionate criminal behavior.

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.

It would be hard to find enough people to fill a big room who didn't feel for this family.
But the same room was empty when a white woman's baby was shot in the face by a black teen. Hardly anyone knew about it.
See the problem a lot of us are having with the hypocrisy - and our dilemma? Of course, we feel sorry for the family. But why just this case?
And why the lies by the liberal media, i.e. this administration, to perpetrate a racial divide that didn't even exist?
Because there's a much bigger problem afoot. Manipulation and control.
Don't sit here & try & make the case that, because the person was white, nobody care. Like you just stated, nobody knew besides the locals. Now if you have a problem & need back up or support for your cause, you may be surprised to find out that, most of not all " liberals" on this thread will lend support. After all, injustice is injustice. But you're so much of a hypocrite & republican, to save face with your party, you're lying & ignoring simple facts in the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case , just to walk lock & step with your party. Pushing racial divide works both ways, don't it? So it really wouldn't matter that the roles are reversed, black killing white or, white killing black. So tell me again why the media didn't cover the black robbers killing the white baby &, why they chose to cover the Martin-Zimmerman case. It wouldn't be the fact that, because his best friend was an ex office, Zimmerman wasn't arrested first & asked questions later or, the fact that everyone know had the roles in the shooting been reversed, Trayvon would've been arrested first &, asked questions later. Not to mention, the case you're talking about, the guys were already arrested & jailed!
