Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

Who says this president hasn’t succeeded with his Progressive Agenda his objective was to broaden the voting base for the Democratic Party’ Mission Accomplished!!

The Labor Force has shrunk, more Americans working Part Time than Full Time, Two Food Stamp Recipients Added For Every Job Created, 101 million Americans receiving some form of Gov assistance and the beat goes ‘On’ and another Hollow Speech given by the President!!

Sales taxes and property taxes don't fund the federal government.
If you want to replace the federal income tax with a consumption tax, maybe the poor will finally carry their share of the load.
The poor already do carry a significant load of the tax burden since most states already have sales and 'sin' taxes that raise government revenue. These are examples of 'consumption taxes' that disproportionately target the poor. So, why shouldn't we balance it out by increasing the luxury tax and death tax on large estate inheritances too?

Daughter Of Georgia Mom Whose Baby Was Killed Claims Mom May Have Killed Him For Insurance Money
Ashley Glassey, 21, daughter of Sherry West, the mother of a 13-month old baby who was allegedly shot by De’Marquise Elkins while they were out for a morning stroll, believes that her mother may have killed the baby for the insurance money, reports First Coast News.
Glassy says that her mother lost custody of her when she was 8-years-old but they have spoken regularly since 13-month old Antonio Santiago was fatally shot in the face. According to Glassy, her mother’s story has changed several times.
Glassey said she started to have her doubts after receiving a phone call from her mother telling her that her brother, Antonio Santiago, had been killed. She claims the night of the shooting her mother asked,“How soon do you think life insurance policy will send me a check?”

Is that where Fox stopped reading to you or something? Read this to the end of the transcript:
911 dispatcher:
OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then?[3:42]
Zimmerman:
Yeah, that’s fine.[3:43]
911 dispatcher:
Alright, George, I’ll let them know you’ll meet them at …
Zimmerman:
Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?[3:49]
911 dispatcher:
OK, that’s no problem.
This is the last thing Zimmerman said to the dispatcher:
Zimmerman:
Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?[3:49]
You could use a look at this map, clearly Zimmerman wasn't heading for the mailboxes:
http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/04/14/2748048...
I'm not trying to re-try this case, just trying to figure y'all out.
Zimmerman was in several different places according to the map before confronting Martin which would have given Martin plenty of time to walk the short distance to where he was staying.

Even if Zimmerman overreacted to Martin's presence, the home where Martin was staying was an easy walk to stay ahead of Zimmerman based on the recorded time lapse.

Arguing where Zimmerman was at any given time or if he should have even been there doesn't change what happened after he and Martin eventually became face-to-face.

Any confusion about Martin's identity and any anger on Martin's part could have been resolved with words at the time of the confrontation.

You want to assume Martin was forced to resort to violence.

I'd like to know how you arrive at that conclusion.

"Sin" taxes are completely avoidable.

So are lotteries and casino gambling, major ripoffs of the poor.

Bravo to him for being a hero.
That's only one accomplishment though (a great one, albeit). GZ also survived a struggle to the death with a drugged-out thug. Tig needs to step up his game....:-)
"ABC News is getting a really bad reputation lately. First, they screwed up a bunch of reporting on the Boston Marathon Bombings and didn't run retractions on most of it... Then, they went to press with FAKE emails to support the "Benghazi Scandal" that Republicans cooked up. Now they may have really out-done themselves.

Everyone in America heard about only TWO news stories over the past couple of days. The first, understandably, is that the Royal Family has a new member. Congrats. The 2nd was that George Zimmerman, a recently freed murderer had heroically saved a family of four from a "fiery auto accident", thereby proving that he's just an honorable man who only wants to do good in the world and is misunderstood.

The latter story is preposterous on the face of it... and anyone who can't see that is blinded by wishful thinking. But let's look at some things that are coming to light about this incident now that ABC got their mileage out of it.

According to some industrious bloggers with a poorly designed site, the officer who responded to the auto accident that is the subject of this story is named Patrick Rehder who lives in Lake Mary, Florida. Here's a supposed copy of that incident report (and I say "supposed" only because I have not personally verified it myself): "
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xRcmHx1ujM0/Ue-1fZG...

" MOST of Rehder's facebook posts have been about the trial... So how is it that a member of the same Sheriff's Office which is tasked with guarding Zimmerman, just happens to be same officer who responded to a car accident that Zimmerman just suddenly showed up at to become a hero? And what are the odds that the same Sheriff's Officer would have 128 friends who are ALSO Zimmerman supporters as well as staunch 2nd Amendment Rights advocates?"

Men have two heads and, aside from the dictum(?) that two heads are better than one, having two heads can simply cause confusion for both the man and the objects of his affection.
Is a Dick-Head an Anthony Weiner in the colloquial or is it a biological appendage in the clinical?
Can men think with both heads or is that something called mutual exclusivity? A man simply can't think when attempting to use both heads at the same time.
Now...what happens when a man has two Dick-Heads like in Anthony Weiner's case? This can happen to a man when and if his Dick goes to his Head.
Right about now, I think we all know which head sits atop Tony's shoulders.
You obviously have a LOT of experience in this area, son!
