Barack Obama, our next President

Where's the outrage? Where's your leadership? A challenge to slacktivists
As seems to be a habit for some people, whenever a story of black-on-white violence hits the mass media, a Twitter friend said recently:“Wow, do you think there will be as much outrage for this story as the #TrayvonMartin case?#doubtful?”
Donald Trump doubled down on that, asking “Why isnt mainstream media all over this like Trayvon Martin story Will there be justice for Chris Lane?”
Christopher Lane, as you likely know by now, is the Australian college baseball player who was out jogging near his girlfriend’s home when he was shot and killed by three bored, black teenagers in Duncan, Oklahoma, who apparently took his life for the “fun” of it. It is a story both shocking and disturbing, but the teenagers in question have been arrested and charged, two with first-degree murder, the third with using a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to first-degree murder after the fact. Justice has been served.
Comparing this to the Trayvon Martin case requires that either the person making the argument be stupid or that they think you are.
Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, admitted, from the first, that he had taken the life of an unarmed, Skittles-toting teenager. The powers that be in Sanford, Florida decided that that was not a chargeable offense, that Zimmerman had Stood His Ground, as Florida law enables him to do, and Zimmerman was let go.
It was only after the activism of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and the army of volunteers they inspired that the mass media took notice of the case. Eventually, enough pressure was brought to bear that the State of Florida appointed a special prosecutor to pursue charges against Zimmerman.
The case drew so much attention because the process was so drawn out. There was a lot of steam powering that cause — steam we did not see, for instance, in the murder of Darius Simmons, 13, a Wisconsin boy killed by his neighbor, 76-year-old John Henry Spooner. The reason? Spooner was promptly jailed and saw his day in court. He was also convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Because the justice system worked, the power of the people and of the press did not have to be mobilized to make it work.
The “where’s the outrage?” argument comes in another form: Why don’t black people protest black-on-black violence? What about all those dead kids in Chicago and Detroit? Where’s the march for them?
This is an argument steeped in ignorance. If the people who make it spent even a minute researching, they’d see their premise was faulty. The reason they don’t know that people do care and do march to stop black-on-black violence is because they don’t care about black-on-black violence. They’re trying to use dead black kids in Chicago to stop you from caring about a dead black kid in Florida, when in reality they care about neither.

Yeah, they should change it from "Stand your ground" to "Kill the witness"

Right behind you. I can take a lot of things on here but not Tonto getting a heart icon.

Daughter and I are playing a duet anyway - her on the cello, me on the keyboard. It's been a while since I've played so it's really nice playing again and accompanying her solos.

Ciao, flack.

Hey O'bama.
Did Rush tell you to hide in your room during the Benghazi massacre?
Did Rush tell you to play spades with Reggie Love during the Bin Laden Raid?
Did Rush tell you to lie about a video being the cause for Benghazi?
Did Rush let things spiral out of control in the Middle East on his watch?
Did Rush instruct you to bow and kow-tow to assorted world leaders?
Did Rush encourage you and the IRS to target political enemies?
Did Rush force you to invest in Solyndra?
Has Rush told you it was OK to play hundreds of rounds of golf while your duties are neglected?
Did Rush tell you to kill or delay the Keystone pipeline?
Was "Fast and Furious" Rush's idea?
Did Rush allow the NSA to spy on innocent citizens?
Does Rush control your cabinet?
Please tell us O'bama , is Rush the supposed leader of this country, or are you? Personally I think with both hands tied behind his back and half a brain he could do better than O'bama on a sober day.:)

Why are you such a damned liar?
Once again carol the Tea Party had more to do with Harry Reid getting elected than the AFL-CIO.
The AFL-CIO has a big problem with ObamaKKKare because most of their plans will be subject to the Cadillac tax when their special exemption expires.

There is no oil in Syria as on Libya so the child-man will do nothing.
Notice that Syria did not dare to use chemicals under the real Bush Administration. I wonder why?
Because they know that under Bush, like under Reagan, you do not mess with the United States.
Only incompetent sissies allow mass murder of women and children.
HEY STUPID! The Syrians didn't use chemical weapons while Bush was president because people weren't rising up against him then.
Oh by the way cretin, what about those Marines killed in Lebanon while Reagan was in office? What did Ronnie do about that? Nothing dumbass!

LOL. Hey goofy, In 2008, Medicaid covered approximately 49 million low-income children, pregnant women, elderly people, and disabled people with federal Medicaid outlays of $204 billion. Currently about 48 million people are on Medicare. Most are age 65 or older.

Again, how is the current system not government run when nearly 1/3 of the US population is covered by government insurance?

I know ... the answer would require a vibrant mind which you do not obviously possess.
