The defense did not want to even take the case. The state made them do it just to quell the growing angst among the black community. Remember, it was me who stood alone against the onslaught of criticism on behalf of Trayvon at the beginning until I read the entire transcript of the dispatch call.
Zimmerman wasn't running around his neighborhood with a gun. He was walking to an area of the complex where the police had agreed to meet him. Trayvon's destination was just minutes walking distance away from where he waited to ambush Zimmerman.
You can't ambush people even if you don't like being seen as suspicious and, unfortunately, Trayvon didn't know he matched the profile of robbers in that neighborhood.
You can't label someone a killer on that kind of evidence.
No woman in their right mind would drop charges against someone who had threatened their life.
I just hope you thought OJ was guilty.
"Carol"
Take a break. Relax. "silly" has spoke. She knows all. Zimmerman was guilty, the hell with the jury's decision. "silly" knows better, she has all the facts. On the other hand in "silly's" mind oj was innocent. The jury said so. In "silly's" mind if a black is killed under any circumstances by a white it is murder. If a white is killed by a black for any reason it is justice.

Okay, Lily, let's get this out in the open once and for all.
Would Obama have to approve his own biography in any publication?
The literary agent who wrote his birthplace was Kenya in his bio, Miriam Goderich, claimed listing Obama’s birthplace as Kenya was “nothing more than a fact checking error.”
However, the literary agency updated the text numerous times in the years following and, as recent as 2007, Kenya was still listed as his birthplace.
Wouldn't Obama have had to approve of what was written about him in his bio before publication?
Remember when Michelle Obama, during a speech about HIV, said she and Barack Obama “visited his home country of Kenya.”
His "home country" is Kenya?
So would he or would he not have to approve of his own bio? And did or did not Michelle Obama say Obama's "home country" was Kenya?
Please tell me how this could possibly be misconstrued.
So what? My parents come from Finland, I call myself a Finn.

You should be ashamed of yourself or embarrassed at how ignorant you are.

A North Carolina Republican county commissioner who ran on a platform of small government and fiscal responsibility was arrested last week when police found him passed out in his vehicle in the middle of an intersection.
According to the Associated Press, this is Brian Berger’s fourth arrest on charges of driving under the influence, domestic violence or drug possession since being elected to the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners in 2010.
Around 12:45 a.m. on Friday, December 7, a woman in Wilmington, NC called 911 to report a vehicle sitting still in the middle of the street. The caller told police that she honked her horn and knocked on the window, but got no response.
Police arrived at the scene and reportedly found Berger — a local tea party favorite — slumped at the wheel of a black rental car unconscious with a bottle of various prescription pills in his pocket.
This is the second time Berger has been arrested for driving while intoxicated. Police arrested him in December of 2012 after he was observed driving recklessly, then failed roadside sobriety tests.

Leaders and dignitaries from all over the world are gathered in South Africa to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela. When President Obama got up to speak, the crowd gave him a huge cheer. It's always nice to be reminded that we in America today have a historic figure as our leader too.

Newt Gingrich is now saying that the death of Nelson Mandela is "just another excuse for the left to smear Ronald Reagan." Actually, Newt, we look on it more as a moment to expose Ronald Reagan for what he really was. Reagan put Mandela on a terrorist list, and vetoed sanctions against South Africa. In fact, if Reagan were alive today, he would say... well, he would probably be telling the exact same lies that Newt Gingrich is. Newt claims that Reagan condemned apartheid. If he did, he said that while actively working to support the apartheid regime. So what you're saying is that Reagan was a hypocrite on top of everything else.

In 1985, Congressman Dick Cheney voted against a resolution urging that Mandela be released from jail. If you’re ever unsure about where the wrong side of history is, look for where Dick Cheney is. Dick Cheney said he doesn’t regret his repeated votes in 1986 against the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act which called for freeing Mandela and ending apartheid. I’m sure his only regret is that his opposition didn’t work.

Bill O’Reilly had a few words to say about Nelson Mandela... but most of those words were the word “communist.” Bill called Mandela a “communist” about half a dozen times in the space of a couple of breaths—and I think he was trying to eulogize the man! Usually Bill O’Reilly can be as ignorant as he wants to be, but he knew he had to rein it in when he was speaking about Mandela’s passing. Still, he couldn’t stop himself from saying “communist” like he had some weird kind of Leon Trotsky Tourette Syndrome.

Oh NO! Not the Google Guys, too!

Protestors Stop Google Bus in San Francisco, Blame the Company for Rising Rents

Tech workers are being accused of gentrifying the neighborhood

American cities just can't win. Bankrupt locales are obviously no good, but cities brimming with cash and possibility appear to be a bad thing too. See San Francisco, where an influx of capital and tech-savvy high-income residents are inadvertently putting pressure on their lower-income peers.

That tension boiled over Monday when a group of protestors stopped a Google bus in its tracks, and blamed the company for rising rents and increased evictions in the city. The legendary Google busses, which transport employees from San Francisco to Silicon Valley on a daily basis, are increasingly seen as a symbol of 21st century inequality.

"San Francisco, not for sale" chanted protestors at the melee that reportedly went for about a half hour. "Stop evictions now," yelled others.

One more time you dance and dodge. The subsidy's you speak of are not specifically directed at the oil industry, many businesses take advantage of the subsidy's. Green energy, agriculture among others. The subsidy's are not directed solely at the oil industry. Do you practice stoopid or is it just part of your nature.
