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 ... Full Story

Interesting to see you rooting for the fatcats on Wall Street, but what about my neighbors Leroy and Shaquanda Jones? They're still out of work.
Why are you cheering for Wall Street fatcats and obscenely wealthy hedge fund managers?
Now don't run away and hide as usual.
You don't understand QE3 so don't even pretend and I won't waste my time trying to explain it to you. I disagree with it, its creating another bubble but that's how Keynesian economics work, bubble - burst - repeat.

I'm rooting for my own portfolio, the Wall Streeters will do what they will do. I'm making money, that's what concerns me.

I have nothing against hedge fund managers except for the way Washington tilts the field in their favor. I don't know what income tax rates you pay but the lowest rate I've paid is around 20% and that's with a lot of finagling. They pay a flat 15% because they fund political campaigns. Do you think its right for you to pay 28% when you're earning $60k a year while they make millions and pay a flat 15%? Capital gains are income and need to be taxed the same rate as earned income.

I don't think income should be taxed at all but I sure as hell don't like getting screwed because I don't contribute to Demopublican re-election campaign funds.

I don't expect you to understand any of that.

Its not about the trial, its about whether or not you people are aware when you lie or perpetuate a lie. I know you do it intentionally so I'm not talking about you. I want to know if Carol, DBDumbfck, Flack, etc. know when they're lying or do they really believe the what they're saying.
I've come up with three easily testable questions:
Carol seems convinced that an eyewitness testified that Martin threw the first punch. No such evidence exists.
Carol swore up and down, even posted the truncated 911 transcript that Zimmerman agreed to meet the police back at the mailbox. The end of the transcript has Zimmerman telling dispatch to have the police call him and he'd tell them where he was.
Carol is convinced that one member of the minority Party in both houses stopped all legislative attempts to regulate Fannie and Freddie.
None of these things "facts" are facts and I'm curious as to how "facts" fit into their alternate universe.

That's your own inflamed stupidity. If I think you're an idiot it doesn't mean I think Obama's a saint. Obama came right out and said that unelected bureaucrats had the authority to order the execution of US citizens anywhere in the world without due process. In my opinion, he should be executed or at least tried for crimes against humanity for that.

I don't expect you to understand any of that.

Not guilty, what word don't you understand? There's only 2.
"Not guilty" is not the same as "innocent". It only means the prosecution could not prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sheesh but you're an idiot!

Used logic, pretty much. Only one of them had a fractured nose, two black eyes and was overtaken.
I also happen to believe Zimmerman was telling the truth.
If you agree with the verdict, why do you keep splitting hairs?
Are you just trying to be argumentative? Or are you bored?
Ok, now we're getting somewhere.

Do you see the problem here?

You made several assumptions:

You assumed that since George had bruises Martin must have struck first. That doesn't mean that at all. I've thrown several first punches that didn't land but that doesn't mean I didn't start the fight.

You happen to believe Zimmerman. Even though he frequently contradicted his own statements you just believe him. Had you been able to hear Martin's side of the story what then?

So, you made some assumptions then stated repeatedly that an eyewitness had testified that Martin threw the first punch when in fact you had constructed that "fact" yourself.

So, you lied (I forgot the euphemism I had said I would use) so you have any idea why you lied?

It took him a while but Tits Magee grew up. He noticed right off that there were few career opportunities open to a man of his size so he took a few criminal justice courses at BU and did a ten year stint with the BPD which at least taught him that there was a pretty fine line between crime and punishment and, just for a lark, he chose to come down on the punishment side of the equation.

Tits met a lot of good people during his time on the force and made some loyal friends, but none so loyal as Lieutenant Richard Leggs who everybody referred to as Resles because once that fucker started movin' you'd better get out of his way.

Tits and Resles, Resles and Tits, after the first three months at the station they were inseparable. Nobody dared make any joke about the closeness of their relationship, they just left it alone and tried to look down whenever one or the other of them passed them in the hall or on the street or in a bar. That was a lot of beef to have bearing down on you so the entire force deferred to the two men without fail. See that? Sometimes even stupid people make the right decisions.

To which are you referring as not having found any political motivation since the findings won't be revealed for another month or so?
So?

The Republican dogs hounded Clinton for 6 years before they finally coerced him into lying to Congress and that's ALL they could stick him with.

Your side is retarded and really just need to start doing their job and their principle purpose is NOT to unseat Democrats. Their JOB, the JOB they were elected to do is GOVERN not try to win Congressional seats and the White House which is ALL THEY FCKN DO!!!!!

Ethical issue possibly but with a decent lawyer not guilty.

"A 19-year-old driver who crashed into a utility pole in Valley Village has been ordered to stand trial for manslaughter in the deaths of two women who tried to come to his aid, only to be electrocuted by downed power lines.
Arman Samsonian of Glendale slammed his sport utility vehicle into a light pole and nearby fire hydrant last Aug. 22. After the violent crash, two women ran toward the SUV to render aid, officials said.
Both of the would-be rescuers, Irma Zamora and Stacey Schreiber, were killed instantly when they stepped into a pool of water that had been electrified by 4,800 volts from the fallen power line.
Six others were injured when they also made contact with the water and were shocked.
On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that there was enough evidence for Samsonian to be tried on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
“He was definitely driving negligently, he definitely had disregard for others,” Superior Court Judge Karen Nudell said.
She made the ruling after witnesses took the stand to relay the horrible, fast-moving events of that summer night."
Agree completely, if he was guilty of gross negligence then he's guilty of manslaughter.
