The medical report from George Zimmerman’s family doctor after the Trayvon Martin shooting shows that Zimmerman’s nose was broken; he also had a pair of black eyes, two lacerations on the back of his head, a bruised upper lip, and a back injury. He was examined by the doctor the day after the shooting. The three-page medical report will likely be used as evidence for the defense.
Meanwhile, the Trayvon Martin autopsy shows that other than his gunshot wound, the only injury on Martin was that the skin on his knuckles was broken. Combined with the evidence from Zimmerman's medical report, the logical conclusion is that Martin was beating up Zimmerman severely before Zimmerman shot him.

You left out the part where it said Zimmerman was on two prescriptive, mood altering drugs and was under the care of a Psychiatrist. But that does not change the logical conclusion based on what we know.

Why aren't those people who are falling out the back door of unemployment getting jobs? Isn't that the Republican theory - if you stop giving them money they will get a job?

As opposed to the Republican strategy of cutting people off with no social support at all?

About a year ago, weren't the Republicans saying if you cut off unemployment people will get jobs? What happened?

Okboston so you’re in the Pelosi camp that Unemployment Benefits plus Food Stamps equal Jobs and Economic growth…Right? If this Liberal approach was working we should have had a Booming Economy and Obama would be a Shoe- in for a second Term!!

Not me. Not in the camp where unemployment creates jobs nor does food stamps create jobs. It may however keep some people from losing their jobs and it may allow SOME houses to be retained by the owners instead of going back to the bank.

As for the election, you have to admit that if the Republicans don't pull off the tri-fecta: Retain the House, win the Senate and win the Presidency, then by default they (Republicans) are the biggerst losers ever.

With the economy the way it is and the campaigning they are doing (has Obama done anything right?) if Obama gets reelected and/or the Dems retain the Senate (what is it, like 23 Dem seats up compared to about 10 Repub seats) the Republicans would have to be idiots and losers not to win.

A new Marxist party line spewer amongst us....

The reason health care cost is rising is because all health care is paid for, but only a portion of people receiving health care are paying. Those paying are paying for both themselves and for those not paying. The total cost of healthcare will not decrease.
Additionally, there is no oversight. The answer isn't more incompetent government, that's for sure.

Social Security has become a well-disguised welfare program. Let's fix Social Security right here and now.

IF YOU DIDN'T PAY INTO SOCIAL SECURITY, YOU DON'T GET ANYTHING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY.
Now that we've fixed Social Security, what other problem do you have?

Marxist communism has been a cancer to every economy it was allowed to infect.
Obama's entourage in charge of the economy are Marxist communists.
Only an idiot would expect a positive outcome with Marxist communists in charge of the largest capitalist economy in the world. This is why we are having the slowest recovery since the Great Depression, coincidentally that was the last time we had a government-based economy president.

No - what I have to admit is that's the most absurdly ridiculous piece of defeatist spin I've ever seen.

Financial bailouts, stimulus programs and auto rescue spending that started under Bush and continued under Obama contributed to the run-up of the debt.

Romney criticizing = Of Economic and Foreign Policies = No jobs = contributing to the run-up of the debt = Obama = Bush Clone

Without Food Stamps less food is purchased. That effects jobs throughout the food supply chain from the local grocer all the way back to the farmer.

Reality is what it is. And reality paints the Republicans as idiots if they can not gain control in an election in these circumstances.

I mean honestly, the "real" unemployment rate is over 15%. The rate of people participating in the workforce is continually dropping. The debt is ever increasing. We are not creating jobs fast enough to keep up with new workers.

How incompetent do the Republicsns have to be in order to fail to win the Senate, maintain the House and take the Presidency?

"Competency" isn't an issue - it's a simple matter of how many other Useful Idiots like you the Nation is burdened with who will be voting for another 4 years of Epic OBOBO Failure against all better sense and judgement.

According to your favorite progressive echo chamber,...
