Gee. Always informative, eh? Thanks.
Can you also link us to what an inept, corrupt State AG looks like, too?

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?
Temecula is almost 100 miles from LA.

People in LA often choose where to live based on the commute. For example, the beach is attractive, but an impossible commute.

Public transit worked better in the old days when most businesses where centered in downtown business districts, like a hub served by spokes of a wheel. That's all changed now and people often need to commute between two suburban locations, impossible for public transit.

Government regulation would be a difficult hurdle for new intercity and innercity, privately held rail systems. Just like the guy with the bus line in Detroit.

That's not what you said, you stated most emphatically that Martin started it, you based your entire argument on that premise.
Was that a false premise ... a lie?
What drove that lie?
Oh yeah, the black guy's always guilty.
I keep forgetting that.
For a guy who claims he enjoyed being a street-fighter, you sure are a wimp. A lot of bad sht can happen if you get in scrap, and you have to be ready. If you dont believe me, take a look at the video of the two professional MMA fighters getting the crap kicked out of them in Brazil (one got clocked with a 2x4, and ended up in a coma). Trayvon was drugged up and casing houses, then thought he'd dust the little Mexican that caught him.

He thought wrong, and got dusted.

Case closed.

Actually I taught my daughters techniques for such situations.
I think that's the better approach.
Neither of them have been assaulted yet.
Youngest daughter just got back from a solo photo shoot in NYC, I'm amazed she wasn't raped and robbed by all those brown people aren't you?
Perhaps, but not all girls are the same and some are unable to defend themselves. No problem with a daughter driving home from work at night, but not walking alone over any distance. Better to pick them up if necessary.

Listen, I'd take a libertarian or an independent or just about anyone even if they were a party of one if they could get enough votes to win before putting Democrats in charge of anything. In case you didn't know, they've been overtaken by a Marxism/Communism ideology. It's the moderates, the "smart democrats" (I like to call them), who are in a predicament. They know their gooses are cooked just because of Obamacare alone.
lol! It's the radical right wing crazies in the t-p who are trying to hijack a party because they can't create their OWN identity are the ones who are creating all the commotion.

Talk about dictatorial.

I'd be more worried about former Congressman Weiner who was running for mayor.
You heard about his latest confessions of lewd texts?
I'd say it's all over for the big Weiner. But liberals in NYC just LOVED him!
Weinerman and NYC are made for each other, both crude and vulgar.

Weinerman's wife, Hillary's Muslim sidekick, must have zero self-respect to stick by this turd.

Odd, isn't it? The tabloids do more investigative reporting on liberals than the liberal media?
Wonder why that is?
Maybe we'll get more information about this administration's cover-ups from The Enquirer. Certainly not from the lapdogs.
Yes. Cons place great faith in their taboliods and try to pass it off as 'proof' of something.

After all, it's much easier to post an opinion than to do any real investigative work.

Let's pray not. But I wonder if we've past the point of no return too sometimes.
Hopefully, the investigations will discover the IRS targeting of Obama's political enemies lead to his doorstep.
Even a President Biden would be a welcome change. That's how bad it is. We'd at least get rid of President Valerie Jarrett too and the criminal in the Justice Department, Eric Holder.
Obamacare is the most looming threat to the economy. Something has to be done soon.

No, I've said the verdict was correct, the only one that could have been.
One wonders why the prosecution went ahead with this case when they had absolutely no game plan and no evidence to allow them to prove the charges.

Can you imagine spending 18 months on a project with no credible plan for successful completion?

I find it strange that black entertainers are going to boycott Florida over a jury verdict. Duh!

Why didn't they boycott the USA after the SCOTUS struck down part of the Voting Rights Act?

Money. That's why.

Florida is not that big of a blip on their radar screen anyways with retirees and Cuban culture, I suppose.

Ms. Fulton joined Reverend Al Sharpton, the National Action Network, and demonstrators, including entertainers Jay-Z and Beyonce, at the Justice for Trayvon rally and a march across New York’s Brooklyn Bridge July 20. The high power entertainer couple also said they will not perform in Florida so long as Stand Your Ground laws are in affect.
http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Natio...
“We’re going to deal with this Stand Your Ground law. There should not be a law that means if you think you’re under threat, you’ve got the right to kill somebody. That law hurts Blacks, Whites, Latinos, Asians. This ain’t just a Black thing. This is a human thing,” Rev. Sharpton told demonstrators.

Some argued American racism is so pervasive, President Barack Obama, leader of the so-called free world, can’t even speak to Trayvon Martin’s death or the verdict without a backlash from right wing, racist opponents, the mainstream media and average White Americans.
Trayvon Martin had the civil right to go home that day, he continued.

Ms. Fulton recalled sitting in a Florida courtroom and having her minor son portrayed as an adult male in a confrontation with another adult.“And it wasn’t. It was a child who thought as a child, who acted as a child, who behaved as a child, and don’t take my word for it. He had a drink and candy,” Ms. Fulton said.“So not only do I vow to you to do what I can for Trayvon Martin, I promise you I’m going to work hard for your children as well because it’s important.”

According to the Rev. Sharpton, a lead organizer of the 1963 March On Washington 50th anniversary gathering Aug. 28, the D.C. commemoration is the next high water mark in a new movement for justice. The day will be devoted to calling for a federal probe of the death of the Florida teenager, voting rights protections, ending Stand Your Ground laws and other changes, said the activist, who is also a MSNBC talk show host and nationally syndicated radio host.
WERE IS REV AL WHEN BLACK KILLS WHITE?REV AL,OBAMA AND MOST BLACK LEADERS DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT MARTIN?IT IS
ABOUT GUN CONTROL!NO MORE GUN CONTROL WE NEED ALL THE GUNS WE CAN GET TO PROTECT US FROM THE BLACK LEADERS STARTING RIOTS!!!!!Fast And Furious Whitewash - Eric Holder Exonerated In Murders of Brian Terry And Jaime Zapata WERE IS OBAMA AND REV. AL BLACK LEADERS RAISING HELL?THATS RIGHT THIS IS WHITE PEOPLE GETTING MURDER
The report our attorney general used to justify withholding evidence of who was responsible for the administration program that led to the deaths of two U.S. agents is out. It delivers more scapegoats than answers.

The release by the Department of Justice's inspector general of a 400-page report on the administration's gun-walking operation, Fast and Furious, is no big surprise.

As Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified Thursday before the House Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) Committee, Fast and Furious represented a "pattern of serious failures" by various agencies.

But he let the buck stop short of where it belongs — Attorney General Eric Holder's desk.

Both Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious were part of a bigger effort called Project Gunrunner, which began in 2006. Even so, the differences between the two are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies. It was run in close cooperation with Mexican authorities, as Fast and Furious wasn't, and involved gun-tracing and not gun-walking.

The report was repeatedly invoked by Holder as a reason for withholding answers and documents on Fast and Furious from OGR Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

Along with Sen. Charles Grassley, D-Iowa, Issa led the investigation of the operation that saw Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata murdered with guns supplied by the program. Holder, held in contempt by the House, still isn't very forthcoming.WERE IS THE JUSTICE??WERE IS REV AL?
