Of course, he didn't deserve to be shot in self defense. If he had not created the situation himself, he'd still be making his tea and skittles drug and, hopefully, would have gotten his life turned around.
Do all the black young men in the cities deserve to be murdered by each other?
The disintegration of the family among blacks and fatherless young boys has created a generation of angry young black men.
Unless black leaders start speaking out about the problems in their own backyard, it's never going to end.
Obama tried years ago. But Jesse Jackson didn't cover his microphone and was heard saying to someone sitting beside him Obama needed to be neutered.
Therein lies the problem.
Still knowing the unknowables?

Liar.

Walmart is inevitable and IMO a good thing. The whole retail/service landscape is changing. I'd be willing to bet there are more small businesses in the US now than at any other time in our history. The internet has brought entrepreneurship to the masses. Brick and mortar businesses will be swallowed by the big guys. Maybe as Americans we can finally give up shopping as a national pastime.
I disagree. I despise Walmart with every fiber of my being and I eat a fair amount of fiber. They are the hammer hitting the final nail in the coffin of the middle class.

Of course said hammer and nail were probably made in China.

<quoted text>Oh, Batty, there you go again. You can cut and paste ancient history all you want, but literate people still see that you did nothing but spam to avoid the obvious: you didn't know what viable meant; you didn't know the wording of Roe V Wade; you didn't understand Wisconsin's or Virginia's medical requirements for abortion, but, yet, you just sling the shit as if you were an expert on all things under heaven...in short, you're a compulsive liar.
I cut and paste the quote from Justice White, so no need to be so sanctimonious.

The wording in Roe v Wade was very narrow and restrictive under which abortion would be legal.

Now we have doctors like Tiller and Gosnell killing born alive babies and they were the only two who were caught. Of course, I'm sure you have absolutely no problem with that either.

Viable to you liberals is in the mind of the beholder. Nevermind a fetus has a heartbeat and developed organs before 12 weeks' gestation.

Stopping a heartbeat is killing life. Think of puppies being sucked out of their mother's womb with a vacuum.

You'd have a problem with that though, right?

So nowhere near 2 billion. It's okay rightwingers have trouble with numbers, history, the truth, basic bodily functions, etc. so I guess 'almost 2 billion' is acceptable.

I don't know. India isn't that far behind them. Those two countries make up almost 3 billion people. Earth population is just over 7 billion. The stresses will build up till there is a release. Who is to sat what form that will take.

Leftist sex-talk usually IS composed of homoerotic fantasies, deviance, etc etc.

'give up shopping as a national pastime'? What are you a Communist?

In this country we shop until you drop.

Okay Galt here's the opinion of Harry Blackmun on Roe v Wade;
State criminal abortion laws that except from criminality only life-saving procedures on the motherís behalf, and that do not take into consideration the stage of pregnancy and other interests, are unconstitutional for violating the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
The Due Process Clause protects the right to privacy, including a womanís right to terminate her pregnancy, against state action.
So there's your constitutional justification.
As for same sex marriage the crux of the matter is the 14th Amendment that guarantees all citizens enjoy equal rights and protections under the law. Since marriage is by its very nature a civil legal contract that gives both legal obligations and advantages then to deny it to working, taxpaying citizens because of their sexual orientation is unconstitutional.
As for either abortion or marriage being specifically mentioned in the Constitution, they're covered under the 9th Amendment;
Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
How's this:

Bob and Sue can marry even if they're both homosexual.

Bob can't marry Bruce.

What's the difference between Bruce and Sue and is the government allowed to discriminate based on gender?

<quoted text>Maybe the2 nd degree was trumped up but, I'm no lawyer &, I could've made the case for 3rd degree using Zimmerman's statements alone. 3rd degree only needs the proof that. his actions less to Martin's death, with an underline felony. Well, he self admitted to stalking Martin. Case closed, 10 to 15! They over reached & got burned for it. Asfar as not having a case from the beginning, blacks get charged first & asked questions later, FACT!
Zimmerman did not "stalk" anyone. He was not stealthily following Trayvon. There is no law against following a suspicious person. The action that lead to Martin's death was his decision to confront Zimmerman with violence. Had he used words instead of his fists, he would still be alive today.

So, no, I'm not making up anything. You're just still in denial.
Like you were about a fellow libertarian making a comparison of the fall of Rome with where we're headed.

I know eyewitnesses saw Martin straddling Zimmerman and know Zimmerman was the only one with physical wounds.

What is that you don't know? The law when it comes to assault and battery?
