Which part of "80% of American households have had virtually no economic gains in the past thirty years. The top 20% have seen a meager increase. The top 1%? They have seen their annual income grow from about a half million dollars per year to nearly 2 million $ per year" don't you understand?
I didn't think I was in the top 20%(based on your statement). I was really shocked that I became a one percenter (based on your statement) because my salary went up over 4x in 30 years.

Not slow at all. But if you couldn't figure the response out it explains why the $2.00 an hour figure you said "is better than the rest of us" was the best you have been able to do. Get better role models, they'll be able to help you find a better living.

For him to be convicted of anything, the prosecution has to prove BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT that he didn't fire strictly in self-defense due to being in fear for his own life or grevious bodily harm.
They don't need to. Not for lesser counts.

The top count however, is still open. Zimmerman clearly created the event by giving chase with a loaded weapon. It's not the job of the prosecution to make the case for the defense. Otherwise, they wouldn't need a trial.

The one thing there is no doubt is a dead body Zimmerman created.
