During the 502 days between the Trayvon Martin shooting and the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, 10,865 negroes were murdered by other negroes.
Any innocent victims aside, just say "yes" to cleaning up the gangbanger gene pool....:-)
In response to the Zimmerman case, social media repeated this claim: "In the 513 days between Trayvon dying, and today’s verdict, 11,106 African-Americans have been murdered by other African-Americans."

Some who are citing this statistic are using it to portray race as an overemphasized point in the Zimmerman trial. We’re not evaluating that opinion; we’re fact-checking the math based on the available data.

The number sounds extremely precise, but it's actually something of a rough guess based on back-of-the envelope math. No one actually knows how many African-Americans were murdered by other African-Americans in that time frame, and the numbers cited are actually an extrapolation of murder statistics for 2005. More current figures from 2011 show fewer deaths. So the specific numbers are not literally accurate.

Also, this claim lacks important context. Yes, it’s true that the majority of black murder victims are murdered by blacks, but the same holds true for whites: Most whites are murdered by whites. And in both cases, this race statistic is not available for all murders, but only ones where the race of both perpetrator and victim can be determined.

The claim contains an element of truth, but it's not fully accurate. We rate this claim Mostly False.

They can't get to the big tax evaders like Mitt Romney et al since they employ entire legal departments to make sure they are untouchable.
That being said; in Mass. you have to attach proof of having health insurance with your return; or you have to pay a penalty.
Most people comply; the idea is for everyone to realize that they have to have insurance. I'm not in love with Obamacare; I am and always have been a proponent of single payer healthcare paid through taxation as is done in Canada. It's cleaner, simpler and less complicated. Get rid of insurance companies; healthcare should not be a "for profit" business with ceos who are paid bonuses to withhold procedures so they can remain in good standing with their stockholders.
I've said this hundreds of times.
Romney pair his taxes, and more.

And gave more to charity as we Conservatives do, more that all Liberals combined.

However, your hero, tax cheat Geithner paid NO taxes!!!

And who parked his boat in Rhode Island to avoid taxes? A descent Republican or a stupid Liberal? Guess!

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrite easy to fool by MSNBC.

Stupid Tea Party Tricks: FreedomWorks Launches Pointless Boycott Against Comcast

The Tea Party has been involved in too many idiotic escapades to count. One of their more memorable proposals was to fly a plane over the Superbowl with a banner reading “Impeach Obama.” Apparently they were not aware that the game would be played in a domed stadium and that it’s illegal to fly over it anyway. Or recall their assertion that ultra-conservative anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist is a Muslim infiltrator. Their proof? He has a beard. And who could forget the call for Americans to rise up and burn their ObamaCare cards. No matter that ObamaCare cards do not exist, FreedomWorks will be printing them up and providing them to Tea Party pyromaniacs.

The very same FreedomWorks is now embarking on a massive campaign to punish Comcast because their MSNBC subsidiary employees Al Sharpton. They have produced a comically amateurish video (below) declaring it “a disgrace that Sharpton has his own TV show.” They sent an email to their 2.3 million suckers…er…members urging them to cancel their cable service if Comcast is their provider. The email states that…

“By paying your Comcast cable bill, your money is helping to pay for Al Sharpton’s salary…Comcast cable subscribers can take action against Roberts and his biased media empire by changing their cable TV service provider. By exercising marketplace choice, consumers can prevent their money from supporting media propaganda.”

If you get the idea that FreedomWorks didnÂ’t think this through very well, youÂ’re quite right. After all, Sharpton works for MSNBC, not Comcast. Any cable customers who cancel their subscriptions will have zero effect on SharptonÂ’s employment status. Those customers were encouraged by FreedomWorks to switch from Comcast to DirecTV, AT&T, or some other provider. However, all of those providers also offer MSNBC, so the revenue generated to the cable network will be exactly the same. Should they opt to do without cable programming, their boycott will do just as much harm to Fox News, and every other channel, as to MSNBC.

So this threat is as impotent as Rush Limbaugh sans Viagra. When liberals mounted a successful boycott against Fox NewsÂ’ Glenn Beck, they targeted BeckÂ’s advertisers. The same tactic has drained the bank account of Limbaugh and his radio affiliates. But going after Comcast wonÂ’t have any more impact on SharptonÂ’s MSNBC program than it will on Donald TrumpÂ’s unreality show on NBC.

http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/...
Die you known that MSNBC unhappily hire a cocaine sniffer black man, Al Sharpton, as news anchor ONLY and ONLY after Rush Limbaugh revealed that MSNBC has never had a black man as a new anchor?

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites easy to fool by MSNBC.

Sorry, but that source is incorrect. There were actually a total of 1360 murders in 2012 just in the top 10 murder cities alone (mostly urban negro areas, obviously). I'm sure a few anglos squeaked into the figures below, but very very few....

America's 10 Deadliest Cities 2012

1: Flint, Michigan

With 66 murders, or 64.9 murders for every 100,000 citizens, Flint’s homicide rate far exceeded its competitors, making it America’s deadliest city of 2012. Flint is plagued by illegal guns that have wound up in the hands of young people involved with the illegal drug trade.

6: Birmingham, Alabama

Birmingham saw 72 murders, or 33.7 murders for every 100,000 citizens, a rate up 21.4% from last year.

7: Newark, New Jersey

There were 92 murders in Newark in 2012, or 33.1 murders for every 100,000 citizens, making it tied with Oakland for 7th deadliest city in America.

7: Oakland, California

In 2012, Oakland saw its highest number of murders since 2006, with 131 murders, or 33.1 murders for every 100,000 citizens.

10: Memphis, Tennessee

The murder rate in Memphis has continued to climb for three consecutive years, with a total of 157 people killed in 2012, or 24.1 murders for every 100,000 citizens. Memphis police director Toney Armstrong said around 90% of last year's homicides involved individuals who knew one another and that African American males under the age of 25 commited most of the city's homicides.

<quoted text>I do believe this president and his administration yearn for civil unrest. It would make it easier for the federal government to implement a "civilian national security force" that is "as powerful and well-funded as the military" which Obama plainly touted as one of his goals. It would be easier to control and isolate whoever they deem a threat.

We're not in Kansas anymore. We're not even in the United States of America anymore. This is clearly a communist tactic.

Liberals cannot defend why any president would call for a "civilian national security force" as "well-funded and powerful as the military" under any circumstance.

This president is succeeding in fundamentally changing this country right under our noses one unnoticed step at a time and with our continued complacency.

From day one, I said we're in dangerous waters. We're now headed into a perfect storm.

Turning against each other would be playing into the hands of those in power who are seeking absolute power.

We have to find a way to encourage tolerance with strong voices and intervention to restore some sanity to the present insanity.

A divided country will fall. The consequences could be much worse.
Few more thing are needed:

#1. More black and minorities unemployed.

#2. Weaker dollar therefore food and had more expensive.(That's why no Keystone pipeline.)

#3. More radical Muslims immigrated into America.(Obama promised 100,000 a year.)

#4. Buy all ammo and emergency food off the market.

#5. Allow Iran to get the nuke so they can use it.

#6. Last and the most important spark of all: allow a well coordinated and anticipated but allowed terrorist attack of a large magnitude, biological, chemical and nuclear.

See? Obama will allow a terrorist attack to happen as he allowed the Boston Mararhon bombing. He NEEDS a crises.

Our water supplies will be simultaneously contaminated by Obama Muslim operatives in the USA.

Do not believe me?
