Ok, ok, there's just too much here to ignore - except you, possibly. What is an AMERICAN principle? Did you mean, "principals?" As in school administrators that agree with you? Oh, well why didn't you say so! Because it kinda starts to sound like you extollin' "American principals with all the adjectives left out? You prolly meant to say you was lookin' fo' some AMERICAN school principals that was white, christian, an' stoopid, right? Cause without them darned adjectives you bein' awfully inclusive...?
An you startin to get bigger audiences are you? How much higher than four can you count? Or did you jus' mean they was fatter?
It's Americans like you who worry me. If you can't see we have a "principal" sitting in the WH right now with an elite few of other "principals" calling all the shots and making all the rules with many unintended consequences of which the majority of "students" don't want imposed on them - and inflicting punishment if there is any resistance or noncompliance to their rules - you would buy anything. And why you would end up like millions of others in the past - and present - who find out too late they were on the wrong side of history.

If Republicans can be faulted for anything in the past, it was being too lax and not keeping a closer eye and check on "students" who took advantage of their permissiveness.

But I'd rather put my faith in them and believe they learned their lesson - and that they will be much more diligent in the future to strike a balance between their previous laxness and minimal oversight going forward to maintain order.

Because that's all that's needed. A balance with minimal government oversight.

The "principals" in power took advantage of our vulnerability - as all power hungry people do.

George Zimmerman reportedly received a small taste of vigilante justice on a recent beach trip in Miami. According to reports on (ever reliable news site) TMZ, Trayvon Martin’s killer was run off a beach when recognized by an angry crowd. Zimmerman, who had been in Miami to film a series of interviews and garner yet more undeserved platforms in the public eye, swiftly left the city following the incident. My hope is that the Miami mob set a precedent for how to treat Zimmerman henceforth.
Via TMZ:
Zimmerman taped an interview last Tuesday with Univision and Fusion, and then took his girlfriend, her kid and his brother to the beach. While they were catching some rays, people noticed him, started harassing him, and then someone shouted out George had a $10,000 bounty on his head.
We’re told it freaked him out and they all retreated to the hotel, but the crowd followed them.
Security swept their room to make sure no one tampered with their stuff and then stood guard throughout the day and night. We’re told Zimmerman did his CNN interview early the next morning and then beat it … literally fleeing Miami.
http://www.salon.com/2014/02/20/angry_crowd_r...
That might have been set up by the Zimmerman Bros as a way to extend their time in the limelight. George's brother is a real media hound having made dozens of paid appearances on HLN's Nancy Grace and Jane Velez Mitchell shows Fox's Geraldo and similar "justice" shows.

He's not being harassed here, his address is easily found, he's out and about and is still driving that same tricked up Honda Ridgeline pick up. With a ball cap and sunglasses George looks like many other pudgy Hispanic 30 year old men.

Read the latest on Emperor Zero, their leader, the one who apologizes and weakens America and has succeeded in destruction from within, where Al Qaeda has failed. I guess it isn't enough that the mainstream media lackeys still carry Obammy's water and act as though his promise to walk on it, came true:
The Federal Communications Commission's plans to put government monitors in TV and radio newsrooms to assess their coverage of eight "critical information needs", and "underserved populations".
The FCC, like much of the alphabet soup in Washington, is an FDR creation that, as with many others, used the cover of "interstate commerce" to turn a federal government into a central government: Radio stations' signals often crossed state lines, and so they supposedly fell within the feds' jurisdiction. In the usual boundlessly expansive way of Washington, that's somehow evolved into a regulatory authority over how local stations serve local communities.
Now it's evolving again, into MICRO-REGULATION OF THE NEWS.
What are the eight "critical information needs" - or CINs, in the regulatory jargon - actually are. You can find them listed by googling a report, from something called "Social Solutions International" of Silver Spring, Maryland:
SOCIAL SOLUTIONS HAS BEEN TASKED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RESEARCH DESIGN THAT CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY AND UNDERSTAND THE CRITICAL INFORMATION NEEDS (CINS) OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC (WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON VULNERABLE/DISADVANTAGED POPULATIONS).
Let's look at a possible scenario:
How about that "the environment" has been identified as a Critical Information Need. So the government monitor in your local newsroom will be tracking how the station covers "the environment", what resources it devotes, the prominence it gives to stories, etc.
But what if you're a news editor and you happen to disagree that "the environment" is one of the eight most Critical Information Needs.
What if you happen to think that "runaway public debt" or "the vulnerability of US diplomatic facilities in Libya" is a more Critical Information Need than "the environment"?
What government bureaucrat do you go to to see about getting the federally-mandated Critical Information Needs changed?
Or does it require a constitutional amendment?
THE STATE HAS NO BUSINESS DETERMINING WHICH NEWS STORIES HAVE PRIORITIES OVER OTHERS, and certainly no business sending monitors into newsrooms to ensure compliance
- because the essence of a functioning press is not what the state decrees the citizen has a "critical need" to know but what it doesn't think he needs to know.
Why should "Social Solutions International" get to determine "the critical information needs of the American public"? And why should the government get to enforce them?
FREE SPEECH IS THE WHOLE THING, THE WHOLE BALL GAME.
Because without free speech you can never be quite sure whether the ball game is even real.
Is the Channel 7 News covering that dreary speech by Michael Mann because the news director thinks it's one of the vital stories of the day?
Covering that story is the "CRITICAL INFORMATION NEED".
http://www.infowars.com/justice-group-warns-o ...
Is this more Orwellian Obama Newspeak for STATE CONTROLLED BROADCASTING?
Will the Obamatrons on here claim this is mere right wing nonsense, or FOR ONCE acknowledge The One is not a fan of Democracy?
Go ahead. Start spinning. We're waiting.
Heard about that last night. The "news police".....

Still concerned too many Americans are not paying attention. The fact it's gotten to this point without so much as a small outcry of protest by all news sources and media outlets is even more concerning. Power in the hands of a few is bad enough. The press in their back pockets and acting as their microphones is dangerous. But a semi-comatose society allows it to happen.

He's so fos on everything. Of course he has no financial problems or health insurance problems, he has no problems at all, except that he can't get out of bed. The government takes care of everything else while he pontificates on here.
