All it says to me is Zimmerman while young was in a skirmish or two and now his life is a righteous one (shooting black thugs).
Trayvon's record, however, indicates he's a budding psychopath who would have gone from breaking into homes to murder. Where is my proof? Let's just say the odds are that his being black indicates he probably would have led a criminal life. If you go to the F.B.I. crime stats web page you would see that blacks, athough a small percentage of the US population, commit the great majority of crime.
Hence: black youth, marijuana, "Swung on a bus driver," attacked a neighborhood watch volunteer who was just doing his job, equals Trayvon being a thug. A black thug. A black psychopath. After all, most of them are psychopaths.
It says that to you because you're white-trash racist scum who want to see more young dead black males.

In fact it's racist right-wingers like you who should be shot down in every city, town, community or gated subdivision across the land. There's no place anymore for scum like you.

<quoted text>You get all of the debt from the wars while the rich make the profits from the wars. The trillions in debt this country has on unpaid for wars is given to the rich in contracts in Iraq and in Afghanistan. That's what cronie capitalism is. I just hate to see people being turned against CLEAN energy, being told not to tax the rich more, yet the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are not paid for. If the rich want these wars, why are they not willing to be taxed more to pay for them?? When we run up all of this debt on wars and only the rich get the war contracts, we get stuck with the debt and at the same time the rich say to lower their taxes. Why don't you send Hannity and O'Reilly emails and ask them if they want a war in Iran and if they say they still support the war in Iraq, why don't they agree to a tax increase to pay for the unpaid for wars they claim to support. Ask Hannity why he wants a war in Iran so badly and why he wants his taxes cut all the way down to 25 percent at the same time?? Why should he make millions, maybe close to one billion on another war and not pay for it in taxes?? All I'm saying is people can't just look at those TV channels and think they are getting real information. Those two channels are selling the elections, telling people to vote D or R. Unless you go and see what the Libertarian economists are saying, people here have no clue what is really going on. Listen to Peter Schiff or Ron Paul or Max Keiser. The U.S. is going to collapse soon, default on the debt, the dollar is going to collapse next year. The ONLY ones telling the truth about it are the Libertarian economists. You can see what they have to say from their radio and TV shows in Youtube. Go in there and do a search for "U.S. economy to collapse" and see what you get. In the meantime, both parties know they ran up tons and tons of debt and that country is going to collapse, and no one on MSNBC or on Fox telling you that. One is selling the huge state pensions and welfare, and the other one is selling running up more debt on a war in Iran and staying on dirty, ending carbon energy. They both have agendas, and both sides are simply running up debt for the things want until the country goes under. Obama ran up 5 trillion dollars of debt in 3 years to feed the government workers their big pensions, while Bush ran up 5 trillion dollars of debt to have two unpaid for wars that his rich cronies profiteed to death from and he lowered taxes so nothing he spent money on was paid for, so he ran 5 trillion dollars of debt. So now we have 10 trillion in new debt and no way to pay it back. The people on TV are not telling the truth about the real state of the U.S. Each side is just trying to run the debt up to 25 trillion before the country goes under. Fox wants to run it up to 25 trillion on more wars they profit from, and on lower taxes for themselves so that they get the maximum money and pay the least taxes before the country collapses, while the Dems want to run up 27 trillion of debt by keep borrowing money to pay out welfare, the state and local pensions and SS and Medicare until the country collapses. The real issue is the country is going to collapse, not whether MSNBC or Fox gets to run the debt up to 25-27 trillion before the country collapses. Ron Paul is telling the truth.


I recall reading an article that said if the Bush tax cuts for the rich were rescinded they would fund the government for 16 days. Heck we could fund the government for another 16 days if we broke Obama's pen and made GSA throw parties at McDonalds,

I have a VERY thick skin, and a backbone:)
There is nothing you can say on Topix that will hurt my feelings, or make me feel bad...lol:)

So nice try....but lets go to BIG BOY world...m'kay?

You're pulling a straw man argument:)

A straw man is an argument based on changing the point.
To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a point (black inventions) by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (welfare, jungle bunnies, meds, flour, etc...), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original point........black inventors.

LOL...you gotta love the irony:)

Since we know those things are the same to a racist like yourself, you've merely confirmed what I said.

So get bent, loser.

Obama needs to show movies like Malcolm X, Hoodlum and American Gangster, so blacks will stop being so timid and scared of these white cracker redneck hillbillies! When whites decide to pull their guns and shoot at us for no reason, we must be ready to respond in kind by firing back without hesitation! If whites know that blacks are willing to return fire back onto them, they will think twice before they decide to shoot an innocent and unarmed teenager, or any black person for that matter!
why would Barry Little show a Malcom Little, uh, i mean Malcom X movie?

Hey tough guy - with DADT over and done with, maybe the 82nd would take you back, huh? ;)

Who would produce your food? How would you recipient class parasites live with no tax payers dime to sponge off of?

Dead black males are caused by BLACK MALES and more knee-grows murder cops than cops kill blacks.

Another reason why educated blacks who act like respectful humans move to white neighborhoods.

Your flimsy culture of entitlement and victimization has made much of your race into primitive criminal thugs.

No surprise that when confronted with 'black power' or sexual allegations that a dimwitted Rightie retreats behind the protection of homophobia and gay taunting.
SO many of these folks are in the closet. So many.:)
Thats funny because you knuckle draggers only talk your %*@# around weak white Liberals, you never say anything to me because you know I'll kick all your teeth down your throat.

You can only fight 10 on 1 you can only sucker punch you never fight one on one. You are a weak coward, your culture is that of lower level simians.
