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

in this country all people charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty. so what you are saying is nobody should be brought to trial. do I have that right.

and since you swear that juries are always right, I guess that means you believe OJ was innocent of murder too.

glad we cleared that up

Living in a time of moral cowardice

“So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 1963

This is “tomorrow.”

Meaning that unknowable future whose unknowable difficulties Martin Luther King invoked half a century ago when he told America about his dream. If you could somehow magically bring him here, that tomorrow would likely seem miraculous to him, faced as he was with a time when segregation, police brutality, employment discrimination and voter suppression were widely and openly practiced.

Here in tomorrow, after all, the president is black. The business mogul is black. The movie star is black. The sports icon is black. The reporter, the scholar, the lawyer, the teacher, the doctor, all of them are black. And King might think for a moment that he was wrong about tomorrow and its troubles.

It would not take long for him to see the grimy truth beneath the shiny surface, to learn that the perpetual suspect is also black. As are the indigent woman, the dropout, the fatherless child, the suppressed voter, and the boy lying dead in the grass with candy and iced tea in his pocket.

King would see that for all the progress we have made, we live in a time of proud ignorance and moral cowardice wherein some white people — not all — smugly but incorrectly pronounce all racial problems solved. More galling, it is an era of such cognitive incoherence that conservatives — acolytes of the ideology against which King struggled all his life — now routinely claim ownership of his movement and kinship with his cause.

When he was under fire for questioning the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for instance, Sen. Rand Paul wanted it known that he’d have marched with King had he been of age. And he probably believes that.

Nobody should be brought to trial without evidence to support the charges. In Zimmerman's, the second degree murder charge was absurd. Some lesser charge may have been appropriate.

OJ was acquitted because of a racist jury and an incompetent affirmative action prosecution team.

The police detained, questioned, and released the Zimmerman after determining he acted in self defense. That should have been the end of it. But the mob rule crowd wanted a lynching so the race baiters forced an illegal detention and trial. OJ was detained, questioned, and charged in the crime. There is a big difference.

Obama and Holder had zero to do with Zimmerman's arrest and eventual trial. Rick Scott and Pam Bobdi, both ushered into office by the TeaParty, knew they had "another" storm brewing in Sanford Florida and took the case away from the Seminole-Brevard state attorneys office and appointed the conservative JAX office to see the investigation through.

These people were all Republicans.

The Sanford police department has a history of not investigating "friends of LE" who shoot or beat black persons.

Stop making sht up!

So was FDR then who was a Pseudo Liberal Democrat which most Pseudo Liberal Democrats today associate themselves with but if they knew the Social & Economical Policies FDR advocated for FDR would be definiely considered and labeled as a conservative then by the thinking & definition that today's Pseudo Liberal Democrats use because FDR would definitley reject Modern Pseudo Liberalism and direction it has taken and would have been considered a Dixiecrat back then in the 1960's too and everything the Dixiecrat's stood for and why most modern Pseudo Liberal Democrats are seen in the public eye today as nothing more than Bigots & Hypocrites because the Original Democrat Party was for Conservatism and not this progressivism that is destroy the United States Socially and Economically.

George Wallace was an economic populist, just like many Southern Democrats. Race was just a tool to win elections.

Galt is concerned about the world today, not an isolated incident that occurred during a war in 1967.
