U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said:“Nelson Mandela united both his country and the world around the basic dignity owed to every human being. His unwavering commitment to justice and equality remains a model for each of us. As we mourn this great leader, let us also celebrate his life and work to carry on his legacy.”

What is 10 billion to the American tax payer? After all it is just money?

The city by the bay...and why I'd never live there...

'UPDATE: Union organizer shouts down protesters as they block private Google shuttle'

"In the video, a union organizer who hopped off the bus shouts down Erin McElroy, staging an argument with a protester who also heads the eviction mapping project. "How long have you lived in this city?" McElroy asked him. He shouted back "Why don't you go to a city that can afford it? This is a city for the right people who can afford it. You can't afford it? You can leave. I'm sorry, get a better job."

His comment was accurate and true.
The USA has committed atrocities in every war we've ever been in. Some big, some small. We slaughtered Korean refugees, we slaughtered Iraqi civilians with 'Shock and Awe'.
If you're stupid enough to deny this, be my guest.
Your simpleton types should pray that we don't get in return that which we've delivered on others, in the name of Democracy and peace.
If your sorry ass does not like democracy and peace you should remove your sorry ass from this great country and take as many obamas as you possibly can with you ,please .

George Zimmerman's girlfriend wants charges dropped

Published December 09, 2013/
Associated Press

George Zimmerman asked a judge on Monday to change the terms of his bond so he can have contact with the girlfriend he's accused of assaulting.

Zimmerman filed an affidavit from his girlfriend that says she doesn't want him charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

In the signed affidavit, Samantha Scheibe — referring to Zimmerman as "my boyfriend" — said that detectives misinterpreted what she said and that she hasn't been coerced into the request.

Zimmerman was arrested last month after Scheibe accused him in a call to 911 of pointing a gun at her, smashing a coffee table and pushing her outside. Zimmerman also called dispatchers, denied pointing a gun at her and blamed her for the broken table.

"I am not afraid of George in any manner and I want to be with him," Scheibe said in the affidavit.

Prosecutors could continue with the case despite Scheibe's request.

Nelson Mandela
From a comment posting in The Jewish Press:

Excerpts from an article titled "Nelson Mandela and the Israel-Palestinian Conflict" written by Robert K. Lifton, president of The American Jewish Congress from 1988-94; President of the Israel Policy Forum and co-chair of the International Board of the Middle East Project of the Council on Foreign Relations.

" Through an approach to Henry Siegman, Executive Director of the American Jewish Congress, African American activists Harry Belafonte, Roger Wilkins and Randall Robinson, together with Lindiwe Mabuzza, the African National Congress' chief representative in Washington, helped arrange a meeting (1990) between Mandela and Jewish representatives led by AJCongress, in Geneva, Switzerland. The aim was to discuss the Israel-Palestinian conflict ...

"He (Mandela) told us that he had learned much from the way David Ben Gurion fought the British and won a homeland for Jews and from Menachem Begin, whom he admired for his toughness in leading the Irgun. He was grateful, too, to Golda Meir for her early denunciation of apartheid....

"With respect to Israel and the Palestinians, he (Mandela) noted that he unequivocally recognized Israel, not only as a de facto entity but its de jure right to exist as a state behind secure borders...."
