Juror Says ‘George Zimmerman Got Away With Murder’
A woman who sat on the all-female jury that acquitted George Zimmerman said in an interview set to air Friday that the former neighborhood watch captain "got away with murder" in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.
Juror B29, the lone minority on the jury, allowed her face to be shown in her interview with ABC's Robin Roberts and disclosed a first name of Maddy. But the 36-year-old nursing assistant, who is Puerto Rican, did not offer her last name, citing security concerns.
In the interview that will air on "Good Morning America," Maddy said that she and the jurors followed Florida law and the evidence put forth was not sufficient to prove murder. And for that, she said, Zimmerman walked.
"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with," Maddy told ABC. "[But] the law couldn't prove it."
Maddy said she expected to be the juror "to give them the hung jury."
"I fought to the end," she said.

we'll still have abortions even if the Court would finally see it your way. you know that to be fact, but you seem to care less about putting women at risk.
that's odd, don't you think?
It should be a little less convenient. Women used to find the money somehow to go to New York to get an abortion at one time.

Women used to have their babies and ended up making a good life for them and for themselves and never regretted it. I know several personally myself.

Woman also used to give their babies up for adoption. It was quite common. My best friend was adopted and I knew many families with adopted children.

But, first and foremost, abortion should be decided by and voted on by the people in each state. If it's inconvenient to drive across a few state lines, then so be it.

It might just keep the number of abortions and irresponsible behaviors down and increase the use of birth control since it's free now.

Many of us resist abortion being the law of the land decided on by 7 "old white men" - the ones you seemingly don't like - making life and death decisions - not for the unborn who are innocent but for women who act irresponsibly making it easier for them to abort life after the fact. It's why we have Gosnells and Tillers out there who haven't been caught yet.

That's what 7 "old white men" did. They made a life and death decision for all of us - including the unborn. It's not just about women who create life and have the legal right to kill it.

It's about ethics, morality and respecting life. And what it says about any society that lacks all three.

Ah, David Dinkins.

Easily the worst Mayor in the History of NYC, and possibly the worst mayor in the history of the country.

The Wicked Irony Of Fox Hosts Accusing Others Of Creating Racial Division
There are few in American politics who have done more to strategically divide this country along racial lines for political and financial gain than Fox News chief Roger Ailes.
While producing town hall style events for Richard Nixon in 1968, Ailes sought to exploit racial tensions at the time by reportedly including "[a] good, mean, Wallaceite cab driver" on the panel of people who got to ask the candidate a question.
"Wouldn't that be great," Bolling, Gutfeld and O'Reilly's boss told reporter Joe McGinniss. "Some guy to sit there and say,'Awright Mac, what about these n****rs?' "
In 1988, Roger Ailes again used racial tensions to his candidate's advantage, producing the infamous Revolving Door ad for George H.W. Bush's campaign that was widely criticized for its racial overtones. The commercial depicts a line of inmates entering and exiting a prison yard swinging around a metal gate. The ad "was calculated to emphasize the one African-American" said ABC News anchor Sam Donaldson.
Running Rudy Giuliani's first mayoral campaign against David Dinkins, Roger Ailes attempted to guide his candidate to victory by stoking tension between New York's black and Jewish communities. He "placed an ad in a prominent Yiddish Newspaper, The Algemeiner Journal, that featured an image of Guiliani's opponent David Dinkins -- who would become New York City's first African-American mayor -- alongside Jesse Jackson. The ad also displayed a photo of Giuliani with President George H.W. Bush, and the headline stated,'Let the people of New York choose their own destiny.' "
Howard Kurtz, writing in 1989 for The Washington Post, quoted Ira Silverman, vice president of the American Jewish Committee saying that while Ailes had used a "legitimate campaign tactic," it was "troubling" because it "prey[ed] upon the fears of the Jewish community."
Fox News has followed Roger Ailes'lead, using race to divide, from the networks obsession with the New Black Panthers to most famously Glenn Beck suggesting the president himself was a "racist" with a "deep seeded hatred of white people and white culture."
When Fox hosts wish to complain about those who benefit from racial division, perhaps they should stop by the second floor of 21st Century Fox's Manhattan headquarters and deliver the message in person.

In an interview with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson, Jay-Z talked to the journalist about a variety of things, including his feelings about being called out by Harry Belafonte. Jigga man had already made reference to the activist and legendary actor on his newest album on a song called Nickels and Dimes, as if Belafonte is a 25 year old Jay Z has beef with. It randomly goes like this:
I’m just trying to find common ground/‘fore Mr. Belafonte come and chop a n***a down/Mr. Day O, major fail/Respect these youngins boy, it’s my time now/Hublot homie, two door homie/You don’t know all the s**t I do for the homies”
On Harry Belafonte saying he Beyoncé have turned their back on social responsibility despite the amount of power they have:
“I’m offended by that because first of all, this is going to sound arrogant, but my presence is charity. Just who I am, just like Obama is. Obama provides hope. Whether he does anything, that hope that he provides for a nation and outside of America is enough. Just being who he is. You’re the first black president. If he speaks on any issue or anything, he should be left alone. Of course we want to challenge [Obama] to do better, but I felt like Belafonte just went about it wrong. The way he did it, within the media, and then he bigged up Bruce Springsteen. It was like,‘Whoa, you just sent the wrong message all around. You just bigged up the white guy against me in the white media.’ I’m not saying that in a racial way. I’m saying what it was just the wrong way to go about it. My presence is charity! Just this guy who came from Marcy projects apartment 530C, to these places of me playing in Yankee stadium tonight.”

ok, i'll give it up.

i would prefer adoption to abortion. i would prefer anything to abortion. but that's not realistic. and as much as you seem to have you head up your ass at times, i know you're not stupid, so you have to know that legal abortions protect women while making abortion illegal will only end up killing as many women as it does the unborn.

we have to find a middle ground. you're never going to completely get what you want. the unborn will still die no matter what laws the Red states try to pass.

and that 'abortion should be decided by and voted on by the people in each state' is all well and good...as long as women are the only ones who get to vote.
