You are intelligent,with strong opinions.I appreciate that.WE do not often agree,this is true.But I find disagreement to be stimulating.Disagreement forces a person to monitor their opinions and perhaps even modify them.The one thing that separates the four of us from mainstream Americans is the fact that we care enough about this country of ours to get on this forum and interact.Maybe not happily!


Yup I can identify with what you are saying. Appreciation for abnormalities is an excellent source for questioning the factors that produced this equation of disruption of a set pattern or formulas.
Christian. Well that was my original introduction to the theories of religion. Christian ideology evolved from numerous similar religions in our humanities history. Several exhibiting similar messiah saviors. Born of a virgin, apostles, miracles, died, resurrected and titled as the lamb of god, the good shepherded, son of god and so on and so on. That alone open my curiosity and exposing me to a multitude of questions of the validity of our present messiahs and their descendants, as to their motivations and results to their teachings.
False teachings abounding in corruptive ideals disappointed me. Then I pursued the thought “What if what they are preaching is correct even if they are not so”. Alas even that failed to address all the various paradoxes that their gods possessed. Conclusion; god is a creation of man’s inconsistent illogical illusions promoting the various paradoxes.
Then I considered “What If There Is A Greater Increase To Our Evolution”. Yup came up with various scenarios but they to, I find them incomplete. One that I may have put forth on this thread I call it “Collective Conscious”.
Still have fun with that one when I have nothing else better to do than to rest and mediate.{What IF?} Have to believe we are magic, nothing can stand in the way,… bring all the dreams alive…. HMMmm
Actually there are more than four of us but what does that matter. As this is not the only thread I visit. I gravitate here for I like its lay back environment and plant some seeds for those that travel through the “site” and perhaps they will “cite” some thoughts to other sites. Expanding, sharing knowledge. Ever seeking the abnormality for assistance to refine our knowledge. This I enjoy. I’m not into Yoga as I find the internet and Topix, as one site of many, a more progressive stimulation for greater knowledge.

According to what the lawyers said this morning on five different media outlets,civil suit aint gonna fly. They do expect Zimmerman to successfully sue the State of Florida,and one media outlet that edited their news reportage to make Zimmerman look guilty.

On one hand, I hope that Zimmerman teaches the worthless media pigs a lesson. They will do anything that they can get away with to promote a
worthless liberal agenda and boost their ratings. It's a sad day when the Russian Pravda is a more trustworthy news source than the U.S. media.

On the other hand, this whole thing never would have happened if Zimmerman wasn't an overzealous bully to start with. He was told to
stand down by the police dispatcher and didn't. I really don't have
any sympathy for him.

The bully was on top of him beating his face in.Police dispatchers will also tell you to stand down while your neighbor across the street is being killed.Here is a hard fact.Had Martin not brained Zimmerman,Martin would still be breathing air.

There is a mentality im America today that says"I cant be disrespected".Ask the former New England Patriot Hernandez about that mentality.Martin was dressed like a thug in a neighborhood where that is very uncommon.Defiant there are neighborhoods in Houston where a white person will be killed out of hand.

Zimmerman, who obviously thought he could handle Martin, was wrong as he had no reason to confront Martin. Martin had a right to defend himself, per Florida's "Stand Your Ground" rule. If either of the two could use that as a defense, it would have applied in Martin's case, not for Zimmerman.

Martin had been untouched. Then he brained Zimmerman.Then he got touched by a bullet.Martin was dressed like a thug in a neighborhood where that was unusual.There are many neighborhoods in America where a white person will be killed out of hand.There was a case in LA a number of years ago where some cops dropped off a white guy in a black neighborhood to "teach him a lesson".He was dead by morning.

Zimmerman is all washed up. Your media is raising a veil of false investigation of factual news. Presently outside in the reality of life; Zimmerman, if you will notice his joy to the verdict was restrained. He knows that this is just the beginning. Federal are investigating possible litigations for “Civil Rights” violations. Civil Court will be dispatched after the Federal investigations and or trials that manifest from those investigations. Civil suite will seek to produce a lawsuit that will strip Zimmerman of any potential future success. Improvising a debt that would progress holding Zimmerman in an infinite debt. As to his security? In jail he would have a better chance with that issue of security. Out in society, with the NRA’s efficient progress to insure that anyone can have a weapon of mass destruction, NOT so good….

The Feds. will do nothing. The NAACP will talk till their black and blue in the face. A jury has spoken, he's been proven to be not guilty. In the state of Florida a civil suit will not produce a dime and those bringing the suit will probably be paying for George's attorneys fees. George will take his money and move to a foreign country and will occasionally check back over his shoulder.

Care to make a wager on that? Only one person had his civil rights violated.That was Zimmerman,for malicious prosecution.Ill be signed back in later today,you can shoot me a topix email to firm up our bet,should you be inclined to back up your opinions.
