Hoodieman is dead because he pursued a person, attacked them, and then tried to bash that person's brains out against a concrete sidewalk, moron.
He could have stopped before he tried to kill Zimmerman and lived.
You know Zimmerman doesn't have any weapons now, right son?

84 percent of what number, dumbass.
What government shutdown? I don't recall any government shutdown on this planet. I do recall 13 percent of government spending being affected. Which, coincidentally, is just about the amount government spending needs to be cut to avoid the certain collapse of our government.
If you're going to participate in the discussion, try to keep your posts pertaining to events on this planet.
lol! you don't recall because you're not that bright son!

Perhaps you can explain how ghosts got into my television while the trial was being broadcast live. Perhaps you can explain how ghosts got into every television in the world while the trial was being broadcast live.

I recall, here on planet Earth, the prosecution calling multiple witnesses to testify, and the jury decided they were lying. I also recall the closing arguments of the prosecution where they described Zimmerman as something like a serial killer. I also recall the goddam judge violating the Constitution and unconstitutionally forcing Zimmerman to make statements. I also recall the judge just walking out of the courtroom when the defense was arguing against the judges unconstitutional actions.
I recall the judge attempting to orchestrate a conviction, and storming out of the courtroom like a spoiled child when it didn't happen.

"many men, at the time they obtained Medicare, started behaving badly. Moral, or morale, hazard is a term largely used by economists to describe the actions of people more willing to take risks because they are insulated from the cost of their actions, in this case because of their recently obtained health insurance.

I have to give you credit. You make an incredibly stupid statement & still try to insist it is true.

Injuring yourself & putting your health at risk just because you now have health insurance is really really stupid.

Foreign policy of the USA has been steady since Truman.
We fight wars in the third world and spy on people.

Most of our leaders spend time getting reelected.

George W Bush is too liberal for the present party but JEB Bush may make a run in 2016 defeating the tea party.

A bank is private property, you moron. They can make their own rules, dufus. Well, there will probably be some Democrat somewhere that says they can't. While we have a Constitution, they can.

Now, back to the event that occurred on public property.

What crime did the police observe that required them to violate the victim's constitutional rights?
What was the connection between that crime and the victim that required the police to violate the victim's constitutional rights?

So how does Obama act like Bush?
Since Barack Obama became president, the extremists who have taken over the Republican Party have escalated their demands every time he’s caved, using the entire government of the United States as their bargaining chit.

In 2010 he agreed to extend all of the Bush tax cuts through the end of 2012. Were they satisfied? Of course not.

In the summer of 2011, goaded by an influx of Tea Partiers, they demanded huge spending cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling. In response, the President offered an overly-generous $4 trillion “Grand Bargain,” including cuts in Social Security and Medicare and whopping cuts in domestic spending (bringing it to its lowest level as a share of gross domestic product in over half a century).

Were Republicans content? No. When they demanded more, Obama agreed to a Super Committee to find bigger cuts, and if the Super Committee failed, a “sequester” that would automatically and indiscriminately slice everything in the federal budget except Social Security and Medicare.

Not even Obama’s re-election put a damper on their increasing demands. By the end of 2012, they insisted that the Bush tax cuts be permanently extended or the nation would go over the “fiscal cliff.” Once again, Obama caved, agreeing to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts for incomes up to $400,000.

Early this year, after the sequester went into effect, Republicans demanded even bigger spending cuts. Obama offered more cuts in Medicare and a “chained CPI” to reduce Social Security payments, in exchange for Republican concessions on taxes.

Refusing the offer, and seemingly delirious with their power to hold the nation hostage, they demanded that the Affordable Care Act be repealed as a condition for funding the government and again raising the debt ceiling.

This time, though, Obama didn’t cave — at least, not yet.

so you can see why the baggers in Congress were so pissed off when Obama finally said FU.

You are obviously referring to the recovery from the disaster the Democrats caused with their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.
Maybe you are just too ignorant to realize that Saul Alinsky's tactic of creating the problem to propose the solution was a well known strategy during the Cold War, well, until the Democrats dumbed down the population to the point of ignorance as evidenced today.
Maybe you are too ignorant to know that it was known Obama was a fraud then by many. Today, there isn't a single person in the country that doesn't know Obama is a fraud. There are only people who pretend to not know.
So, you are asking why there was opposition to an obvious Marxist communist fraud who was named president, right?
I'm wondering how long it will take you to come to the obvious answer to that question.

Catholics Join The Dump Rush Movement With Petition Denouncing Limbaugh

"We are disturbed by Rush Limbaugh’s incendiary comments last Wednesday, November 27th about Pope Francis and are joining together with Catholics and other allies throughout the nation to support the Holy Father. To call the Francis a proponent of “pure marxism” is both mean spirited and naive. Francis’s critique of unrestrained capitalism is in line with the Church’s social teaching. His particular criticism of “trickle down economics” strengthens what Church authorities have said for decades: any economic system which deprives the poor of their dignity has no place within a just society.

Contrary to what Mr. Limbaugh suggests, the Catholic Church isn’t built on money, but on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.

We call on Mr. Limbaugh to apologize and retract his remarks. We urge other Church organizations and leaders–both ordained and lay–to also condemn Mr. Limbaugh’s comments.

We proudly stand with Pope Francis as he provides prophetic leadership for the Catholic Church and the entire world."

what prevents anyone from making money "trading pieces of paper"? everyone is treated the same, stupid. I pay the same tax rate on "traded pieces of paper" that warren buffet does.
Sorry but your answer was stupid. Every type of income is not taxed the same.

Why is the money earned trading pieces of paper taxed at a rate significantly less than the money earned through a good wage or salary?

The "weeping and gnashing of teeth" doesn't even begin to describe what America has brought down on its head with this tar-baby in the White House.
The most powerful tool in the hands of the Socialists, the Social Engineers From Hell, is the ignorance of the masses.
And to pursue and clinch this end, they rely heavily on their Fifth Column, the popular media. Watch The View, for example, and you will know what "Dumbing Down" truly is.
Complacency, gullibility and blind loyalty - an historically dangerous combination.

Thankfully, Americans are wising up. But there are far too many who haven't got a clue. The 'man on the street' interviews are funny and depressing at the same time. You always know the ones who voted for Obama. They don't even have to admit it. Their understanding of history and current events says it for them.

The "dumbing down" of America is an understatement. But the worst part is this administration relies on it and the liberal media perpetuates it. Power and the Fifth Column is another dangerous combination. You're absolutely right.

It was first signed by Ford with bipartisan support in Congress and expanded several times - including during the Reagan administration - also with strong bipartisan support.
During the mid-1980s, Ronald Regan disapproved of the tax burden on the poor. He also believed it was driving poor families deeper in debt because of the inconsistencies in the tax laws. As a result, in 1986 he signed into law a revised tax reform package which eliminated income taxes on poor families. Thereafter, many states passed similar actions to reduce the tax burden on the poor.
Ronald Regan sympathized with the plight of the poor and signed legislation to boost their financial position. He signed the tax bill expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit which was hailed by many as "the best anti-poverty, the best pro-family, and the best job creation measure to come out of Congress."
This should make you and all liberals very happy. So why the long face?
Long faces are justified when one hears the name Reagan:

FACT: After Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, he raised taxes seven of the eight years he was in office and the tax increases were felt hardest by the lower and middle class.

FACT: When Reagan came into office the national debt was $900 billion, by the time he left the national debt had tripled to $2.8 trillion.

FACT: Ronald Reagan secretly sold arms and money to Iran.

FACT: Ronald Reagan spent billions of dollars funding the Islamist mujahidin Freedom Fighters in Afghanistan.

FACT: Ronald Reagan gave nearly 3 million undocumented workers.
amnesty. All the laws that would have cracked down on companies who hire undocumented workers were, of course, removed from the bill.

FACT: Ronald Reagan raided the Social Security Trust Fund and replaced it with glorified IOU's.

Didn't you get the memo ordering every Democrat dupe to stop using the word "ObamaKare"?
It stated "Obama mispoke when he said he liked the word 'ObamaKare'".
If you noticed, every other indoctrinated Democrat dupe here is avoiding using that word they previously put in every post.
You need to repeat your most recent propaganda indoctrination session. Obviously some of it didn't stick.
