Local police are probably bigger offenders than state police.

Drug abuse by cops is completely ignored.

Let me guess, you are one of those idiots who claims that a baby who dies shortly after birth goes to hell because it never accepted Christ as it's savior.
Don't believe in hell or heaven for that matter. The baby is on the mom's insurance plan until 26. Haven't you been paying attention.

If the parents have insurance, the baby is automatically covered.

"Pre-existing conditions" are those that exist before obtaining coverage.

The majority of DEMOCRATS, Homer! And that was even after bribing Blue Dog Democrats to sign the damn thing!

Not one Republican was on board and they were virtually left out of the whole friggin' process!

Show me one major piece of legislation that was passed by a strictly partisan Republican vote.

You can't.

The more I look into this "story" the more appalled I am. As it turns out, there are 24 Republicans and 17 Democrats on the oversite committee and only five Republicans and two Democrats stuck around to hear the parents speak...not "testify" as some seem to believe.

The photo of the empty democratic seats that has been circling the internet was taken by "an Issa staffer" and it was Issa who made a point of tweeting that Democrats left the room while completely ignoring the truth that Republicans weren't there either. This man is a disgrace and should be fired.

If the prosecution hadn't gone for second-degree murder, the jury might have convicted Zimmerman on manslaughter charges.
The prosecution didn't even want to take the case but were forced by the state.
So everyone got the trial they screamed for but then screamed because they didn't like the verdict of which the jury was not convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt it was second-degree.
That was the prosecution's decision and they failed to prove it.
Bullshit! The prosecutor petitioned for lesser included offenses &, was granted them, including manslaughter. The incompetent jury still found Zimmerman not guilty. 2nd degree murder was a stretch but, not that big of a stretch. The all white jury was bamboosled by Zimmerman's weight loss & Jewish Amish look. Also a bunch of sellout witnesses. Black folks lying about him tutoring black kids. They were all paid off just like Zimmerman's defense. Now look. That asshole can't stop making the news &, his dumass wife is getting exactly what she deserves for lying to save his racist ass.

Yes!! We arrived home yesterday. I was so looking forward to the trip in the beginning and doubly anxious for it to end. I don't know how people can travel for months on end. I have to say, surprisingly, I loved Chicago. Glad to be home...at least until October.

Total propaganda. The rightwing retards have refused to compromise at ever step of the way and have continued to do so and will continue to do so and then of course blame the president. Buncha aholes. And you know it and have said as much.

I wish the left would scream just as loudly about that Montana judge who sentenced a teacher rapist to 30 days after raping a 14-year-old student who then killed herself.
And that frikkin' judge who actually said that the 14-year-old victim looked "older than her chronological age" as some kind of excuse.
But we don't hear one little squeak of outrage by the left when it involves a liberal judge, do we?
You're a liar. We all did. Why the need to make things up?
