Why take two hours on public transportation for a 20-minute auto commute?
Are you aware of one of the few real conspiracies that really did occur in this country? I can't remember the details but before the widespread use of cars there was effective intercity and innercity, privately held rail systems. Worked very well. Auto manufacturers and ancillary industries and investors actually set up shell companies and went around buying these companies and drove them into the ground to create a market for cars. I want to say GM and Firestone were both fined for conspiracy years after the fact but again, I'm a little fuzzy on the details. I'm sure you can find sources if you're not already aware.

BTW, how's that 20 minute commute from West Covina to downtown LA going these days?

Obama apparently prefers bowing down before a Saudi Prince - like a servant.
The president not only set the tone for the targeting but after Democrats lost the House in 2010, his vision for a one-party system was shaken.
So don't think for one minute Obama didn't know about it. One of the only two appointees by the president to the IRS met with him two days before it began. But you'd say that's just a coincidence?
If he didn't know, you'd be implying his top advisors who DID know are inept by not informing him or this president doesn't know anything that's going on in his own administration.
He knew. Of course he knew. If it's proven he knew, it's all over.
Then there's Benghazi which still hasn't been laid to rest. Where are all the survivors? Why aren't they speaking up?
After that, there's the DOJ's illegal confiscation of personal emails and phone calls.
(It's my guess Holder is going to slip quietly into the night next month.)
Then there's Obamacare. Even the unions are starting to freak out.
Then there's NSA and the potential abuse of power as was in the case of the IRS.
Then there's Syria and Egypt. And now Russia dangling Snowden under Obama's nose.
It's like it never ends.
Still looking ...

Disagree. I think they should pursue a civil suit and hope Zimmerman wins his suit against NBC. Its the closest thing to justice they can hope for.
Martin's parents have already settled out of court with the HOA's insurer for a rumored figure of just under $1 million.

It will be difficult for Martin's family to sue Zimmerman in Florida Civil Court and the DOJ will not pursue civil rights violations against Zimmerman. The Fbi found no racism, it's just interesting TV talk for you fools...

If Trayvon Martin had been shot for looking at someone the wrong way while in any housing project, it would have been NO news at all.

NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, race profiteeering, start a race war and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain, violating Zimmerman's Civil Rights... Go George!!!

That's not the problem, I don't know what NBC's take was on it; I agree with the verdict. The problem here is your incessant lying and judging Martin based on the color of his skin.
Well, that's just your liberal dyslexia kicking in. Must be contagious.

I'm basing my judgment on the eyewitnesses who saw Martin straddling Zimmerman and Zimmerman's wounds and someone getting the snot beat out of them screaming bloody murder in the background of several neighbor's cellphones dialing 911.

Oh, and the inconvenient truth you refuse to acknowledge that Martin had more than enough time to get to where he belonged - only a short sprint away from where he was shot.

Since the edited recordings were aired, NBC has claimed that it had not engaged in a "deliberate act to misrepresent," saying instead that the phoney edits had originated out of a desire to shorten the audio for television air-time instead of trying to defame Zimmerman.

NBC has since fired- three separate people involved with the faked recordings although it has never actually apologized on the air to viewers. That reluctance to apologize may prove very useful to Zimmerman now that his suit against NBC is likely to resume.

NBC recklessly, deliberately claimed that GZ had used the archaic racial slur coons when referring to some black men who he claimed had successfully burglarized his neighborhood.

This was later demonstrated to be false. Even the prosecution in Zimmerman's criminal case admitted that the word used was punks. The FBI has reported: No evidence George Zimmerman is racist...

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Martin Family Attorneys

In a twist not even the best fiction writers could have seen coming, the Trayvon Martin case, instigated by a couple of sheister attorneys looking to make money from a tragedy, will reportedly end with George Zimmerman recovering legal and monetary damages for "Civil Rights" violations from Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Trayvon Martin family attorneys, Daryl Parks, Benjamin Crump and the demokratic party..

http://www.examiner.com/article/zimmerman-s-l...

Now that Race Pimp Profiteer Al Sharpton is claiming responsibility for organization against Zimmerman. I am anxious to read about the new DIRECTION of NBC and its subsidiaries. The lawyers, on the 10th floor should began investigating corporate LIABILITY.

It's the culture...

So here we are in Sanford, Florida, USA and Tenzing's running off to Argentina showing us street scenes depicting what Hispanics look like......

Gee. Always informative, eh? Thanks.

Can you also link us to what an inept, corrupt State AG looks like, too?

And you haven't convicted Zimmerman?
If it weren't such a sad tragedy, I'd say you were funny.
No, I've said the verdict was correct, the only one that could have been.

I do blame Zimmerman for creating the situation to start with, he should have just called in to 911 just like the neighborhood watch playbook says you should. It also says not to pursue or confront. I don't know that he confronted but by the transcripts he undeniably pursued thus triggering the incident. If he'd have followed the neighborhood watch charter instead of acting out his tough guy fantasy Martin would be alive today.

As usual, and probably just like Realtime, you didn't click on the link I provided.

But here's another one from the EPA - you know, the government's EPA.

Notice the highest temperatures since 2000 aren't much higher than the 1920s to the 1950s.

And we're only talking a little over 1 degree.

The graph also makes the climate pattern look...um...what's that word? Oh yeah, cyclical.
