Well you can spin it any way you like but the prosecution nor the FBI were able to find one iota of racism in Mr. Zimmerman's actions. Based on the conditions that evening and Mr. Martin's size, Mr. Zimmerman also could not determine his age.
I agree it was a tragedy and Mr. Zimmerman made errors in judgement. Mr. Martin also made errors in judgement. When you pummel someone, straddle them, and them no means of escape, terrible things can happen. He could have walked directly home and advised his father of the incident. He chose to confront Mr. Zimmerman and fight him. Based on the evidence and the law, the jury made the correct decision.
I have not made one comment regarding Snowden so throwing that into your insult is totally dishonest. In addition, you do not know anything about me but seem to feel very comfortable in attacking me as a "racist" and a "teabagger".
I am glad you would not have raised your son to be a racist. I did not raise my children to be racists either. I also did not raise my children to be bigots which, based on your comments, may have been an issue for you.

While meeting with his Jobs and Competitiveness Council today in Durham, N.C., President Obama cracked wise about one of his administration's early catchphrases.
Remember "shovel-ready projects."
Those were construction projects in the 2009 stimulus bill that were supposed to get moving right away -- but jobs council members told Obama today that some got held up because of elaborate government regulations and permitting procedures.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)(Pub.L. 1115), commonly referred to as the Stimulus or The Recovery Act, was an economic stimulus package enacted by the 111th United States Congress in February 2009 and signed into law on February 17, 2009, by President Barack Obama.
To respond to the Great Recession, the primary objective for ARRA was to save and create jobs almost immediately. Secondary objectives were to provide temporary relief programs for those most impacted by the recession and invest in infrastructure, education, health, and renewable energy. The approximate cost of the economic stimulus package was estimated to be $787 billion at the time of passage, later revised to $831 billion between 2009 and 2019.

The legislative branch of the world's most powerful nation is now widely scorned as it lurches from one near-catastrophe to the next, even on supposedly routine matters such as setting an annual budget and keeping government offices open.
There's no single culprit, it seems. Rather, long-accumulating trends have reached a critical mass, in the way a light snowfall can trigger an avalanche because so many earlier snows have piled atop each other.
At the core of this gridlock is a steadily growing partisanship. Couple that with a rising distaste for compromise by avid voters. Unswerving conservatives and liberals dominate the two parties' nominating processes, electing lawmakers who pledge never to stray from their ideologies.
"The voters bear some blame," Davis added, noting recent elections in which the greatest energies were on the edges, not the middle.
Edwards, who has written extensively on government since leaving Congress in 1993, said in a recent article for The Atlantic that Americans have created a political system "that makes cooperation almost impossible and incivility nearly inevitable."
There's hope it might improve somewhat, over time, Edwards said in the interview. But for now, he said, members of Congress are responding to voters who say "if you compromise, if you reach across the aisle, we will defeat you."

haha, thanks for the big laughs on all your posts above. He definitely is that and does it well.
Have you seen late night this past week. They were killing me with all the grandrand/Christie drama and the mutant turtleman. Even had Larue County featured one night. Can't wait for Stewart to return next month but it has still been hilarious without him. Love it when they show fauxbox pundits being stupid. Colbert did somemore crazy eyes videos off faux making her normal ignorant comments.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda, don't change a dam thing. Didn't we have a similar posting about not know you? By your comments and your alliances on here I put you in that repuke lemming tool category so take it personal if you wish, you are all basically the same on here. Driven by the opinions of some spinning gloom and doom pundit. And hey if the shoe fits....
I am neither a racist or a bigot. I am a proud Army brat taught not to see color, but humans, GOD's children, one and all. I am also a proud retired federal employee fully trained in the Human, Women's & Workers Rights fought for long ago with the Civil Rights Act as a results. I have met with some of these OLD WHITE CONgressMEN who have no respect for it. Civil Rights shouldn't have to be fought for again. I don't hate any of you, or any human, I don't even feel sorry for most of you anymore, you have a God given right to act just the way some of you do. You answer to HIM. Some have missed that WWJD concept. We get. Well demonstrated on a daily basis.
I don't have much tolerance for close minded people who stay glued to the likes of fauxbox pundits and winged nut drama sites of gloom and doom. That I do have an issue with. I see the glass half full. Must suck to see it empty.
Stay the minority, I enjoy my ONE party MAJORITY who cares about PEOPLE, not THEMSELVES, BIG CORPS and $$$$$$$$$$

Mitch McConnell Whines That An Invasion of Liberals is Pushing Him Around (lmao)
Mitch McConnell is desperately trying to save his job, and he is claiming that liberals are invading Kentucky and pushing him around.
McConnell began his speech with an indirect attack on Alison Grimes that included an Anthony Weiner joke. McConnell then pivoted to running against Obama. He said,The liberals are worried, because just as I predicted Obamacare is a disaster. He said that liberals are coming down to the state,to push him around. He also said that he hand Rand Paul give it to the liberals every single day. McConnell was trying hard to ward off his tea party primary challenger by connecting himself at the hip to Rand Paul.
McConnell said that Kentucky cant get things done from the back bench, and insinuated that reelecting him would keep Kentucky strong.
McConnell attacked Harry Reid by calling him,A Nevada yes man for Barack Obama. McConnell said the choice is between an Obama yes man or a Kentuckian to run the Senate.
Minority Leader McConnell was very impressive. He managed to work in every single stereotype about liberals that one can think of. McConnell used the term nanny state, and was doing his best to paint himself as a true Kentuckian. It is clear that McConnell is worried about his tea party challenger. McConnell hinted in his short remarks that he is going to run an especially vicious and negative campaign.
While sitting on a $15 million campaign war chest, McConnell claimed with a straight face that liberals are coming to Kentucky to push him around. Sen. McConnell will exponentially outspend both his primary opponent, and his general election opponent Alison Grimes. However, facts are no defense for the Republican Partys paranoia get out the vote effort.
McConnell offered up no agenda, and no ideas. His speech was about gluing himself to Rand Paul, and spreading more fear of the black president. It was fascinating to watch McConnell try to defuse the charge that he has become too Washington by slapping on his heavy Kentucky accent. McConnell is arguing that his incumbency is a good thing, which will be a tough sell to an electorate that is tired of congressional failure.
Mitch McConnell is continuing his campaign of appealing to Republican paranoia and fear. His debut message for 2014 wasnt terribly strong.
Mitchs main message seems to be that he is so weak that liberals are coming to the state to push him around. Mitch cant hold off the liberal hordes by himself, so he needs the help of every Merica loving Republican in the state to save his sorry ass. Sen. McConnells ominous warning to Republicans was that if he goes down, theyre next.
McConnell didnt offer to do anything for Kentucky. He sounded like a 70 year old, 30 year incumbent, who say anything to save his job. If the paranoia doesnt sell, Sen. McConnell is going to have a major problem.
Ole turtleman is a trip. I can't wait to see them all attack his pitiful record helping KENTUCKY, especially from his teabagger opponent. I love it when they eat their own.

"The fight within the GOP is a simple one. Theyve all but abdicated the White House because they refuse to moderate their rhetoric, and they refuse to come to grips with the changing demographics and moods of the country. This isnt anything new, and in fact during the Civil Rights movement, it was the Democratic Party that had to do a lot of soul searching and distance themselves from their racist, southern, segregationist colleagues. The sea of change our country is currently going through has put their ideology on trial lately, and between austerity being debunked, Trickle Down being shown to not work at all, and the changing social mores that are putting the Republicans further behind the times, we can only expect to see more of the infighting and political cannibalism that makes watching politics in America fun."
Last years election cycle was an absolutely brutal one for the Republicans. Still caught in the Tea Partys death grip, the GOP was able to maintain its majority in the House, but on aggregate they got about a million fewer votes than the Democrats they were opposing.
Gerrymandering is literally the only reason they are still in power. After spending four years demagogueing President Obama, his fiscal policies, and just about everything else under the sun about him they lost. They lost despite all their pollsters and media outlets telling them the other guys polls were skewed and ol Mittens really did have the momentum to kick the Kenyan Usurper out of office.
When that didnt happen and we saw Karl Roves tantrum on election night it became crystal clear that the impending Republican Civil War Id written about in the past was about to have its first real shots fired. Since November, the GOP has done an exhaustive study on why they lost, and yet despite what everyone with an IQ higher than their shoe sizes knows that they have an antiquated values problem and not a messaging problem theyve not learned anything and the battle lines are being drawn as the desperation gets thicker and thicker in the air. In short, theyre now eating their own.
Its fun to watch.(YES IT IS)

First theres the overt racism of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and his inane comments about Mexican immigrants. Apparently this old, white guy really is afraid of our darker skinned friends to the south. In an interview with CNN, King said of the Dreamers, kids who were brought here by their undocumented parents,You know, you only get one valedictorian per class per year. And they arent all dreamers. And a lot of other American kids out here that are competing for that valedictorian status. But every night there are dozens and scores of people that are smuggling drugs across our border. This isnt something that just was made up out of thin air. This is something I get from the people enforcing the law down on the border. Of course The Washington Post just gave that canard four Pinnochios since theres literally no end to the amount of bullshit in that statement.
It cant be denied that Kings comments most definitely represent at least some portion of Tea Party congressional representatives as well as their constituents. It also cant be denied that national party officials rightfully freaked out on King and several prominent Republicans both in and out of Congress have lambasted King for his overtly racist commentary. Theres something important to remember though King didnt have any compunction at all about spewing his hate speech. You have to ask yourself why? And the answer youre going to come up with is,Because he knew ultimately hed get away with it. John Boehner is an incompetent Speaker with no control over his fringe (yet) so the embarrassing gaffes, racist remarks and rape comments arent going to stop. The Republican Civil War will rage on, and even the big dogs of the party wont be immune.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) may have two of the largest egos among the crop of presumed 2016 GOP presidential nominees. Neither one of them has met a microphone they couldnt belch pedantic bullshit into. So it would only make sense that these two Alpha-dog wannabes would be butting heads. Christie took up the mantle for the non-Libertarian wing of the party when he went after Rands political ideology as this strain of libertarianism thats going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought.
While Im not sure what kind of libertarian strain is going through the left-wing currently (other than saying,Hey, maybe we shouldnt discriminate against minorities and members of the LGBT community?), undeniably the GOP is also being torn apart by the libertarian wing which also shares some commonalities with the Tea Partiers and theyre going to clash with the establishment Republicans too.
The fight within the GOP is a simple one. Theyve all but abdicated the White House because they refuse to moderate their rhetoric, and they refuse to come to grips with the changing demographics and moods of the country. This isnt anything new, and in fact during the Civil Rights movement, it was the Democratic Party that had to do a lot of soul searching and distance themselves from their racist, southern, segregationist colleagues.

July: 988,000 'Discouraged' Americans Concluded There Were No Jobs for Them
August 2, 2013 - 9:23 AM
There were 988,000 discouraged workers in the United States in July, an increase of 136,000 from July 2012, according to data released today the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
Discouraged workers are persons not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them, the BLS explains.
While the overall unemployment rate declined to the lowest rate since December 2008 at 7.4 percent, those not in the labor force remains near an all-time high at 89,957,000. The previous high was 89,967,000 in March of this year.
The number of Americans who dropped out of the labor force was 240,000 in July 78,000 more than the162,000 jobs added in the month.
The BLS labeled people who are unemployed and no longer looking for work as not in the labor force, including people who have retired on schedule, taken early retirement, or simply given up looking for work.
Also, 2.4 million Americans were marginally attached to the labor force, which means they are not working but wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months

Boehner Tweets Link Showing Obamacare Works
After Voting to Repeal It for the 40th Time
While Republicans are rarely known for making a whole lot of sense, a tweet I saw from House Speaker John Boehner yesterday really takes the cake. In an apparent attempt to claim that the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, will raise health care premiums for Ohioans by 41%, Boehner actually tweeted a link to a story that shows premiums will go down for most people in the state.
Sure, in the story Boehner linked, the top paragraph of the article reads:
Ohio insurance regulators Thursday released rates for health insurance to be sold on the new state marketplace and said premiums for individuals will rise an average of 41 percent compared with 2013 rates.
Good news for Boehner and his fellow Republicans, right?
That is until you read all the way down to thethird paragraph:
But the average 2014 premium of $332.58 a month for individuals, unveiled by Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, masks the fact that for many individuals, premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses will go down.
In fact, the article goes into some great detail on the many benefits of Obamacare. It claims about 80 to 90 percent of people who, according to the non-partisan CBO, use the state exchanges will qualify for federal subsidies to reduce or eliminate costs.
The article also goes on to tell how the 41% figure was calculated, essentially saying that specific health care coverages and plans were picked to artificially create a much lower 2013 average premium expense. For example, the individuals they used for the 41% figure were taken from a much healthier pool of people than the average population. Of course, healthier people usually pay less for health care.
Now the article does allude to one group of people which might see their premiums increaseyoung, healthy individuals who buy their own coverage.
But, thats of course before you factor in subsidies that will offset some of the cost. Older, pre-Medicare individuals will most likely see lower premiums.
The article also states that because of the requirements the Affordable Care Act establishes, most citizens will have access to a wider range of health care services.
Basically, what Boehner and his fellow Obamacare opponents often do is quote prices for premiums before any subsidies are taken off. But in this 41% number, they not only used costs before federal subsidies, they skewed the pool of data for 2013 to reflect a much lower premium costs than you see with the general population.
Something this article clearly points out.
So, in Boehners rush to bash the Affordable Care Act on his Twitter account, apparently he either didnt read the articleor didnt make it past the first paragraph.
Because what he ended up doing was tweeting a link to a story which actually shows Obamacare will help most citizens living in Ohio, and Americans in general.
I would encourage everyone to please head over to Boehners website and send him a big thank you for tweeting a story that actually shows Obamacare will help not just most of the people of Ohiobut most of the country as well.
But email him soon, Im sure hes already preparing for the House to vote for the 41st time to repeal the health care law as soon as they return from their 5 week summer vacation.
