Dude, if a woman is still pregnant after 20 MONTHS, maybe she should consider an abortion, unless of course we are talking elephants.
BTW what is it with conservatives, why are you only capable of binary logic (1 or 0) either this or that, nothing in between.
I'm a liberal, served 6 1/2 yrs in the Corps and am an avid gun owner. I own an M1 Garand, K98 Mauser,o '03 Springfield and others.
Some on the left are for complete gun control and want to outlaw them.
Others want to outlaw handguns.
others want to outlaw semi-automatic military weapons.
and others like myself want to require back ground checks and manditory safety classes before you can purchase a weapon.
It is not all black and white dude, well except for conservatives I guess. Maybe you guys can't process more than two diametrically opposed thoughts at once.
Grey areas are for people who want to get away with something...

It certainly would seem that way. And what better way to avert attention from the failures of the Obama administration than a nonexistent racially-motivated tragedy in Sanford, Florida, which the liberal media pumped up on their behalf?
Time to put the focus back where it belongs.
The country should be focusing on how Obama abused his power with the IRS and other government agencies. I agree with you Carol.

Obama is worse than Nixon.

Get over it the trial is over. A jury came to a decision, the American way, Zimmerman was declared not guilty. Your version{s} of the trial do not pass the common sense test. If not for political attention this case would never have came to trial. No one won, a young man is dead, his family devastated. A man, Zimmerman who is not guilty and his family will be defamed forever by racist like you.

And Trayvon's parents are millionaires. Why in the world would the condo association pay out before the verdict?

Teenage kids?
Those cops used restraint all throughout the incident. King was a complete parole felon azzhole who tried evading arrest after driving drunk while trying to evade cops at high rates of speed through residential streets endangering citizens.

Justice was served while the black community got thousands of free TVs and murdered Korean Store owners.

Expect the same now..

just bbecasue people say Zimmerman isn't a racists, doesn't mean he isn't prejudice.
My guess is that Trayvon's race had little to do with Zimmerman's actions. Rather it was Trayvon's age and appearance that led to the confrontation. The hoodie and hip-hop style clothing.
Fact is Martin was not engaged in any illegal activity. Zimmerman even made a remark about punks getting away with things. Martin got killed not for engaging in any illegal activity but for looking suspicious.
From Martin's point of view, this overweight man is following him in a car, then he gets out of the car and starts following him on foot. We don't know what transpired, we do know Zimmerman's state of mind though as witnessed in the 911 call.
Zimmerman took the law into his own hands.
At the time of the shooting, could immerman have been fearful of his life? Yes.
But who initiated the attack? We don't know
Was Trayvon engaged in any illegal activity? No
We do know that if Zimmerman had not gone all vigilantee, Trayvon would still be alive.
You can't start a fight and then claim self-defense when you start losing.
Your ignorance is actually beginning to make me smile.

We desperately need a decent school system on this country's urban reservations.

You need to put yourself in his shoes. Zimmerman did what any concerned neighbor would do...tried to keep an eye on Trayvon until the police arrived. It doesn't matter that Trayvon was innocent. That fact would have revealed itself as soon as the police contacted him. For Zimmerman to go home would have meant letting a possible burglar escape apprehension. I think most people who care about their neighborhood would have done the same thing. What happened that night is a tragedy for both Zimmerman and Martin.
This explains the whole sad story.

The aggressor was not Zimmerman. Residents are perfectly within their rights to walk their neighborhoods even with a legal concealed weapon if their intent is to protect it while waiting for the police. Martin instigated the confrontation and made himself the aggressor.

A fact lost on many.

Do you think there are grounds for a civil rights case? A Wrongful death lawsuit against George Zimmerman would bankrupt him , enrage his big moneyed right wing gun lobby supporters, and keep political pressure on the Florida state legislature to overturn the horrible shoot first laws of this state.
When this gang of Racist Pigs digs from the bottom of the barrel, they will come up with nothing but racist charges.

This BS attempt was fully expected because of the racist character of this administration.

More wasted taxpayer money at the DOJ.

Thanks to Obama, my family and I are now going to get gun permits. We just discussed this and feel Obama & Democrats want to destroy freedom so we might as well do it now.

Then if some lowlife Democrat comes over here, we can defend ourselves, if needed and absolutely necessary to protect our lives from the criminal Democrat element.

It's amazing how many people are doing this because Democrats want to take away our freedom.

Zimmerman lawyer to move ‘asap’ against NBC News

By Erik Wemple, Published: July 14 at 12:15

Last night’s not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial will enable the neighborhood-watch volunteer to resume his case against NBC News for the mis-editing of his widely distributed call to police. Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.

Here’s how NBC News, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

The full tape went like this:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

NBC Universal Media responded to the Zimmerman complaint by noting that other media outlets played up the racial angle of Zimmerman’s deadly encounter with Trayvon Martin.

The company also noted the pivotal nature of the second-degree murder case:“[I]f Zimmerman is convicted, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of his own criminal conduct, and not of the broadcasts at issue which, like countless other news reports disseminated by media entities throughout the country, reported on the underlying events.”

That formulation is now null.

According to Zimmerman attorney James Beasley, the case against NBC News was stayed pending the outcome of the criminal case. Now that’s out of the way, and Beasley is ready to proceed.“We’re going to start in earnest asap, we just have to get the stay lifted which is a ministerial act,” says Beasley, a Philadelphia lawyer, via e-mail.

When asked how the not-guilty verdict affects the civil case against NBC News, Beasley responded,“This verdict of not guilty is just that, and shows that at least this jury didn’t believe that George was a racist, profiling, or anything that the press accused George of being. That probably doesn’t get you that much but it’s simply time for us to start the case and hold accountable anyone who was irresponsible in their journalism.”

George Zimmerman ought to apologize to us for costing tax payers millions of dollars in having to try this creepy ass cracker in one of our courts . If George would have stayed true to his creepy ass cracker MO and stayed in his pick-up truck until the cops arrived we would all be better off and richer .

Obama's infractions of betraying the people's trust are much more serious than Nixon's.

But Nixon was a Republican and Obama is the liberal media's sweetheart.

Unless and until a glaring spotlight is put directly on the liberal media's bias, we might as well surrender and get it over with.

Blind loyalty, complacency and a willingness to be misled always leads to no good.
