Any comments on this?

The way I see it is that justice has prevailed.

Now we will have to deal with the black racists, you know those who judge a person by color. The savages are already taking to the streets. Obama and Holder getting involved to sway the jury failed.

Zimmerman Is Acquitted in Trayvon Martin Killing.

SANFORD, Fla.— George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty late Saturday night of second-degree murder. He was also acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge.

It's over so let's move on. There are much larger problems in the nation and world at-large and this just doesn't register as more than a paltry distraction to what ultimately matters.

How's that?

They tend to blame there own as the jury comprised of all females and only one white woman was on the jury.....all the others were black.......so do the blacks blame their own for letting Zimmerman off? I wasnt there,you werent there..so you dont actually know what really happened,do you?

Why is the U.S. arming Egyptian terrorists?
June 29, 2013
The Obama administration should stop sending taxpayer dollars to nations that embrace Islamic terrorism — nations that behave like adversaries, not allies.
Case in point: Egypt and the radical Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama administration recently agreed to spend an additional $250 million in taxpayer money to send weapons to this increasingly unstable nation.
That's in addition to the more than $1 billion annual taxpayer giveaway to Egypt. The United States is putting highly sophisticated tanks and warplanes in the hands of terrorists — terrorists who are hostile to America and to our longtime ally, Israel.
http://triblive.com/opinion/featuredcommentar...
Senate Republicans Arm the Brotherhood
Nearly two-thirds of them voted to give weapons to the Egyptian government.

So Senator Paul tried to stop weapons transfer. His amendment, however, was defeated 79–19, because 23 Republican senators opted to follow the lead of McCain, Graham, and Ayotte. They joined all Senate Democrats (and a couple of nominal “independents” who are, in effect, Democrats) in voting to “table” the Paul Amendment.“Tabling” is a bit of procedural chicanery, allowing senators to defeat Paul’s amendment yet pretend to the folks back home that they didn’t actually vote “against” it.

Rand Paul spoke out against his fellow members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations this week after they voted 15-3 in favor of arming elements of Syrian opposition. According to Foreign Policy, the bipartisan bill “would authorize the shipment of arms and military training to rebels ‘that have gone through a thorough vetting process.’”

Gee, what could go wrong?

“This is an important moment,” Paul announced.“You will be funding, today, the allies of al Qaeda.

<quoted text> I've been a coal miner for over 30 years. Lets see your proof that it's a deadly source of energy. Please include your proof while comparing coal with all other energy sources. Life has all kinds of deadly risks. Do you know what is in the food and drink you consume daily that is far more deadly than coal? Do you have any idea how many jobs were lost because of all these regulations? I'm all for having a cleaner safer environment but that comes with a very expensive bill. A bill that we cannot afford at this time. Obamas timing is fked up.
Here ya go skippy !

Coal-fired power plants have a dramatic effect on human health and the environment as well as total health care costs (courtesy of EERE)
Everyone’s heard of the carbon footprint of different energy sources, the largest footprint belonging to coal because every kWhr of energy produced emits about 900 grams of CO2. Wind and nuclear have the smallest carbon footprint with only 15 g emitted per kWhr, and that mainly from concrete production, construction, and mining of steel and uranium. Biomass is supposedly carbon neutral as it sucks CO2 out of the atmosphere before it liberates it again later, although production losses are significant depending upon the biomass. Carbon emissions and physical footprints are known as externalities and are those vague someone-has-to-pay-eventually kind of thing it’s hard to put a value on. Proposed carbon footprint taxes are in the range of $15 to $40/ton of CO2 emitted, but assigning a physical footprint cost depends on the region, ecosystem sensitivities and importance. A hundred-acre wetlands to be flooded by a new dam is worth more to the planet than a barren hundred-acre strip under a solar array in the Mojave (P. Bickel and R. Friedrich, 2005).

Coal-fired power plants have a dramatic effect on human health and the environment as well as total health care costs (courtesy of EERE)

But an energy’s deathprint, as it is called, is rarely discussed. The deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced and, like the carbon footprint, coal is the worst and wind and nuclear are the best

For coal, oil and biomass, it is carbon particulates resulting from burning that cause upper respiratory distress, kind of a second-hand black lung. Our lungs just don’t like burnt carbonaceous particulates, whether from coal or wood or manure or pellets or cigarettes. The actual numbers of deaths in China from coal use exceeded 300,000 last year since they have ramped up coal so fast in the last decade and they usually do not install exhaust scrubbers. The impact on their health care system has been significant in not just deaths, but in non-lethal health effects and lost days of work.

Here's another source numbnuts,,,,read on son.....

Among all industrial sources of air pollution, none poses greater risks to human health and the environment than coal-fired power plants. Emissions from coalfired power plants contribute to global warming, ozone smog, acid rain, regional haze, and–perhaps most consequential of all from a public health standpoint – fine particle pollution. In 2000 and again in 2004, the Clean Air Task Force commissioned comprehensive studies of health impacts caused by fine particle air pollution from the nation's roughly 500 coal-fired power plants. Each study incorporated the latest scientific findings concerning the link between air pollution and public health, as well as up-to-date emissions information. Both found that emissions from the U.S. power sector cause tens of thousands of premature deaths each year and hundreds of thousands of heart attacks, asthma attacks, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, and lost workdays.

This study provides a new update on the burden of death and disease from coal-based electricity production across the United States. Estimated impacts are based on projected power sector emissions in 2010. As in our 2000 and 2004 reports, Clean Air Task Force commissioned Abt Associates to conduct the analysis for this study. Abt Associates developed estimates of health impacts using a well-established and extensively peer-reviewed methodology that has been approved by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Science Advisory Board and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). In fact, the same methodology has provided the basis for regulatory impact analyses in the context of recent EPA rulemakings.

Conservative media have claimed that the Obama administration is waging a "war" on "cheap," "clean" coal that will cause blackouts and massive layoffs. In fact, the Obama administration has simply implemented long overdue and legally required clean air regulations to protect public health without hurting electric reliability or employment, and much of the transition away from coal is due to the rise of cheaper, cleaner natural gas.

FACT: Regulations Were Legally Required And Long Overdue
MYTH: The Obama Administration Has Waged a "War On Coal"
On Fox News, Deneen Borelli said that Obama "has a war on coal, a war on fossil fuels. It's hurting hard-working Americans. It is harming businesses. Our energy prices are going up." [Fox News, Hannity, 5/28/12, via Nexis]
A Washington Times editorial stated "There's no doubt the Obama administration is waging an all-out war on affordable energy," citing the EPA's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. It added: "Ending the war on coal is the first step to reviving the U.S. economy." [Washington Times, 8/21/12]
The Weekly Standard's Henry Payne recently wrote that "Obama's EPA has done an end run around the legislative process" to wage a "War on Coal" that has been "devastating to businesses and communities across the eastern coal belt." [The Weekly Standard, 9/24/12]
CRS: Most Major Clean Air Act Rules Began Under The Bush Administration. A Congressional Research Service report explained that many Obama-era pollution rules proposed to enforce the Clean Air Act and other statutes "began development under the Bush Administration":

MYTH: EPA Regulations Are Causing Large Job Losses
On Fox News, Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller said: "Obama and the EPA, they are basically saying look, we don't care that your way of life is threatened because if they did they would be implementing policies that don't destroy jobs and industries." [Fox News, Hannity, 8/3/12, via Nexis]
Fox Business' Melissa Francis reported "The casualties for the embattled coal industry piling up even higher," before attributing the job losses to EPA regulations and the Obama administration's "war on coal." [Fox Business, MONEY with Melissa Francis, 9/18/12]
In a Weekly Standard column, Henry Payne wrote "perhaps no industry can count job losses the White House is causing like the coal industry." [The Weekly Standard, 9/24/12]
In a Forbes op-ed, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's Marlo Lewis cited an industry-funded study which claimed that the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards and three other EPA regulations "could reduce net employment by an average of 183,000 jobs per year." [Forbes, 6/12/12]
WV Center On Budget And Policy: "U.S. Coal Mining Employment Is Much Higher Today Than It Was Over The Last Decade." An analysis of data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics by the nonpartisan West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy found that U.S. coal mining employment is much higher today than it was over the last decade":

While U.S. coal mining employment rose substantially during the first half of the economic recession it lost over 10,000 jobs in 2009 before bouncing back in 2010 and 2011. In May 2012, the industry employed 85,600 compared to 77,200 in December of 2007. However, since the beginning of 2012 the coal mining industry has shed about 1,000 jobs. In spite of these recent jobs losses, U.S. coal mining employment is much higher today than it was over the last decade. In fact, coal mining employment today is higher than at any time between 1999 and 2008.

Uh, while switching channels this morning, I can tell you that it isn't over. The race baiters - all black by the way - are out in full force. When they stfu it might be on the way to being over.

Gov. Tom Corbett is dogged by consistently woeful poll numbers.

Larry Sabato, the University of Virginia scholar and political handicapper, rates him the most vulnerable incumbent governor in the nation. The authoritative Rothenberg Political Report last week moved its rating of his seat's 2014 prospects as "tilts Democratic," while the Washington Post opined that the Pennsylvania governor's mansion was No. 1 in the chances of switching parties next year.

His often rocky relations with Republican leaders in the Legislature were demonstrated anew last month, as the lawmakers failed to pass his three most ardently sought initiatives -- liquor privatization, pension reform and a transportation bill. All those woes have attracted a long line of Democratic challengers who are expected to battle each other in a crowded primary in May.

Corbett's sycophantic relationship with the shale "drillers" is a disgrace and is something that future generations will pay for forever - unless, of course, all living beings can somehow do without drinking water. His conservatism seems to be limited to cutting public services. Disgusting...

Out in Westmoreland County the Beaver Run Reservoir is now surrounded by Marcellus Shale Drilling operations. One is on a hilltop overlooking the reservoir less than a 1/2 mile away.
But hey, since they're exempt from the Clean Water Act, it MUST be safe, right? Right?
Oh and uh, the entrances to these sites are guarded by armed guards...
