<quoted text>Don't be so ignorant! stand your ground is a part of the self defense law &, was read by the judge in the jury instructions. In essence, stand your ground is self defense. George Zimmerman's lawyer wasn't stupid. Instead of having a stand your ground hearing, he chose self defense because, it was included, giving him 2 options instead of 1! Look up the guidelines of the law in Florida of you don't believe. So the president was right & you ma'am, are wrong!
the hispanic zimmerman would have been found guilty if he had of used the stand your ground law. Stand your ground does not apply if you go to a problem .

Liberal groups may have been targeted by IRS as well
New documents provided to the Treasury Department's inspector general indicate

that progressive groups,

in addition to conservative groups, may have been targeted by the IRS for additional scrutiny, according to testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by J. Russell George, the inspector general. The revelation bolsters the case of congressional Democrats who have argued that IRS targeting was not politically motivated, and that the groups targeted were more ideologically diverse than originally believed.

In his prepared testimony, George described documents from July 2010 that included the term "progressive" within a discussion of the types of groups that should be scrutinized by the IRS. Those documents were provided to George's office on July 9, but were not provided prior to the inspector general's original audit that initially jump-started the targeting scandal and the resultant committee hearings.

Its obvious to everybody else that just a black guy getting elected POTUS was enough to drive the racism that's been simmering just under the surface into the full light of day.
It takes two to tango. He couldn't inflame a "race war" without racists.
And actually in many ways, Obama's election paved the way for non whites in the conservative political bastion.

I have never heard them make so many claims about blacks being in their fold, while being worried about the latino vote!

"How long do you think we can survive a 17 trillion dollar deficit - soon to be 20 trillion;"
-You should ask George and his Republican congress (some of whom are still serving) what they're plan was when they took us off the surplus? In 2000 the CBO estimated the debt would be paid off by now.
" a growing and bloated government with a shrinking private sector;"
- Where's the private sector shrinking and how does the above relate to the Roman Empire?

Yesterday's speech was completely unnecessary.
If the demonstrators were listening, Obama was trying to tell them that it was over, that no federal charges would be approved.
But he lacks the leadership to say so directly.
So, cities across the country will be disrupted for nothing.
So... what you're saying is... you want Obama to use the power of his presidency to impose his will on the Justice department....

.... while at the same time, looking for the smoking gun that he used the power of the presidency to impose his will on the IRS so you can burn him at the stake for improper use of his power?????

Only liberals equate discipline with beatings.
Unruly and disrespectful children need to learn the stove is hot. It doesn't take much for them to learn this very quickly.
The parent then only has to say "Hot! Hot!"
Many mothers with disciplined children only have to say one or two words after one or two pops on the hiney with the palm of the hand or a wooden spoon or a ping pong paddle or any other benign object - my mom preferred the fly swatter - to teach them the stove is hot, i.e. unacceptable behaviors lead to unpleasant consequences, and they learn this very quickly too.
Liberals let their children get third-degree burns while cursing at them not to touch the hot stove. I've seen it happen time and time again.
As someone else on here always says, "it's the culture..."
Children who never learn boundaries early on as a young child eventually become uncontrollable and are often dysfunctional in society - selfish, obnoxious and disrespectful adults.
Just look at liberals in this country. You, for example.
Damn straight!

tell that to the people in the LA.wall mart. The people who were beat up by mobs while waiting for the bus,the jogger that was beaten by 3 blacks ,or the cops that fired rubber bullets to stop the mobs in NYC. It was smaller out breaks of violence than expected but it did happen and still is.

Unfortunately, this president, as usual, didn't know what he was talking about. The Stand Your Ground law wasn't introduced in this case.
Maybe if he would learn the facts before he speaks, he'd be a little more credible.
If he wants to make the issue about changing this law in 20 states, then he should speak directly about doing that. But to tie that issue in with this case where it doesn't belong and speaking out of turn, he just creates more confusion and anger.
Zimmerman did not invoke Florida’s "Stand Your Ground” law and ask for an immunity hearing before the trial, but the jury that acquitted him received instructions that borrowed language from the statute, specifying that if “he was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force.”

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/16/19...

so quit trying to avoid the question....if the roles had been reversed, would Martin have walked?

or try this one....if Zimmerman had killed a white person would he have walked?

you're never going to give a straight answer for either question. like most conservatives, you can't break out of the ideological bubble you've been trapped in by your purposely deceitful political leaders and media. it would be a sign of a weakness if a conservative actually considered an argument without the blinders of right wing theology/propaganda.

Many right-wing commentators insist again and again that there is no more racism in America if we have a black president and black attorney general.
On Friday, Maher said,“He’s just asking conservative to say ‘We admit there is a problem.’ Can we get that?”
Unless people are walking in Klan robes and burning crosses in the middle of the street, he said, conservatives are loath to admit that there is any evidence of racism anywhere.
He asked his white, conservative panelists, anti-tax zealot Grover Norquist and former Republican U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL),“Have you ever been followed in a department store?”

The Coming Revival of Liberalism

Bruce Bartlett

....I think the indications are that conservatism is running out of steam. Conservatives don’t really have anything they want desperately to accomplish in terms of changing policy. Virtually all of their energy is directed toward stopping liberal initiatives. That is, conservatives are basically on the defensive, as liberals were in the 1970s.

Opposing change works fine when things are generally okay. But when things are not, the energy eventually shifts to the party open to new ideas, to change, to reform and experimentation.

A new poll from Public Religion Research Institute shows growing support for a more liberal approach to policy that I think will gather steam in years to come.

For example, 63 percent of people support higher taxes on those making more than $250,000, with only 34 percent opposed. There is now majority support for allowing gays to marry versus 41 percent opposed.
Raising the minimum wage is supported by 73 percent of people, with just 25 percent opposed. And 54 percent of people favor legal abortion, with 42 percent wanting it to be illegal.

The poll also makes clear that people are becoming increasingly concerned about a lack of jobs, the growing gap between rich and poor, and the declining standard of living. They are becoming more receptive to government activism to deal with national problems and less confident that the private sector can fix them.

These are all issues on which the liberal approach to policy is more popular and the conservative position is weak. I think it is only a matter of time before liberal intellectuals begin articulating specific ideas that will find favor with the electorate--conservatives will be left with little to say except,“no.”
