For all those Race Baiters that attended “ I Had a Dream ‘ memorial and tried to use Trayvon Martin as the poster child to repeal ‘ stand your ground ‘ again George Zimmerman was found not guilty on all charges and has asserted he shot Martin in self-defense. A federal investigation found that race was not a factor in the killing, and the prosecution never accused Zimmerman of killing Martin because he was black!!

they don't 'own' those guns unless the gun store that sold them the guns out the backdoor fills out the paperwork.

what do you think it means when the ATF says 'lost'?

In an interview with Allison Samuels, Bernice King talks about her father’s legacy, civil rights today and the Trayvon Martin case

George Zimmerman was found not guilty which outraged a great number of people. How do you feel?

I understood the reason behind people’s anger since I thought evidence was there to show that Zimmerman was responsible for this young man’s death. Manslaughter certainly seemed very reasonable. But with my law background I’m not sure the prosecution did all it needed to do make the case and I don’t understand why. There were many issues from that night that weren’t addressed and many statements about young black men that weren’t rebutted by the prosecution. That was bothersome, as was the District Attorney’s upbeat demeanor after the verdict. I thought it was totally inappropriate and made you wonder if there wasn’t some kind of arrangement in the end. I’ve never seen a DA so upbeat after losing such a high profile case.

That is the goal of Pseudo Liberalism to become the conservatives in the political sense of what Conservatism is and that is against change and you haven't seen nothing yet but wait til Obama ties the Social Security SCAM to the Consumer Price Index and watch the Pseudo Liberal Democrats opinions really change about Obama which is what the 2014 budget calls for and he isn't worried because he can't seek re-election either.

BS how do you think they are killing one and another in Chicago because they possess them so they own them unless they are proven & found to be stolen after the crime.

Interesting observation; also that they didn't push to have those 911 calls that Zimmerman made was odd.

i must like change.

for example...drones are much better than costly Republican wars.

and are you saying that we shouldn't lower spending on entitlements? but here's the funny part....

...In past fiscal showdowns, Republicans have slammed the White House for resisting entitlement reform, but so far, it seems Obama’s play has confused the GOP’s messaging machinery...

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/04/...

so you must be loving that.
