Trayvon Martin was a victim of a doped up wanna'be cop with a "hero" complex. Time will take care of the problem. I expect he'll either cop a plea and get a deal, or go to trial and be convicted of voluntary manslaughter. We'll see.
Martin was a pos that got flushed.
You gotta half-darkie...if I were you I'd hide the Robotussin and watermelon juice. I'm willing to bet Martin's last words were "man, did I fckup er what."

As recently as Wednesday, Pelosi had strongly urged Romney to provide further disclosure of his tax returns. But today, while maintaining Romney should release more documents because of “custom” and “tradition,” Pelosi said the issue was trivial compared with economic issues.
“We spent too much time on that. We should be talking about middle-income tax cuts,” Pelosi said after answering two questions about the issue.
The Minority Leader faced questions about the issue after a McClatchy News report showed only 17 of 535 Members released their tax returns when asked.

Funny, how, when backed into a hypocritical corner, it's all of a sudden a distraction and not that important. Funny also how there were only 17 members of congress that released their tax returns when asked. You hypocrite liberals on this forum gonna keep squealing about it now? My guess is yes, the conspiracy theorists will be out in force.
Wouldn't surprise me to find that Pelosi and most of her congressional buddies got big bucks invested in Bain and don't want that info released to the public by disclosing their returns.

Ann Romney’s snobbish snub
Ross Perot suffered for calling black voters "you people," but 20 years on, we're all "you people" to GOP elitists
By Joan Walsh
I find it impossible not to comment on Ann Romney Antoinette’s remark that her husband has provided enough tax information to “you people.” Or as she told ABC News:“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life.” Like everyone else, I immediately thought of the trouble Ross Perot caused for himself when he referred to the NAACP audience as “you people” in 1992. It’s so disrespectful.(Continued:)

<quoted text>Oh, I know most of the country is beyond race. It's just that you, the Ratz who continues to bait, and the entire crew of you morphing trolls from the GR crew truly ARE bigots and racists. That's why you are forced to re-attire yourselves in new identities after self-destructing with "red dots on foreheads" and "rags on heads" and racial and ethnic insults, coupled with your pride in and support for the self-admitted white separatist and supremacist Gloria/Tally/Monica. Worse, you're scared out of your gourds of what will happen to you when you become the minority. If you live long enough, you'll witness it.
Nothing will happen to you except that more of the people you encounter won't like you, simply because you don't know how to like them - based strictly on the external and superficial. In your limited view of the world, they aren't "Americans" like you. They're all here illegally and to mess up your perfect experience in white world where 97% of the population is white, and you and the neighbors keep trying to get the interlopers to move and stop depressing your property value. Mmmmmmm-k?
So you determined all that about me because I'm an X Obama Supporter? And you call me the racist. So what was I when I voted for Obama? Is there some part of "X" you can't understand? So was I not racist then, wasn't worried about all my friends that according to you aren't "American" like I am simple because they are a different race? Or could it be.....and stick with me here because I think I'm on to something...Could it be that progressives have used the race card to identify ALL those that don't approve of Obama's policies so long now and so much that they have yet to understand that ALOT of people that voted for and wanted Obama as president in the last presidential election simple don't like what he has and hasn't done during his term and don't support him anymore. But you don't seem to be able to grasp that so it's much easier to just throw the race card, exactly what you did. You don't know me, you didn't even seem to get that I was a former Obama supporter (I guess posting under X Obama Supporter wasn't much of a clue for you). SO now even those that supported Obama in the past and don't now have went from not being racist to being racist and thinking everyone a different race from themselves is not "American" like they are.....do I have that right?
Is it really that hard to get that not everyone thinks Obama has been so great? Are you really that delusional?
Well thanks anyway for making the point clear that you have overused and wore out the race card by using it even when you don't have a clue who you're actually using it against.

And yet, a moron like NTRPRNR1 cannot see that the 96 or 97% of Blacks who did and will vote for Obama is RACISM.

Cash for clunkers


The person who calculated this bit of information is now, and has been a professor at the University of West Virginia in Morgantown for the last forty some years.

He says that:

A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons of gas a year.

A new vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons of gas a year.

So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction reduced gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

The government claims 700,000 clunkers have been replaced so that is 224 million gallons saved per year.

That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.

5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption.

More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs about $350 million dollars.

So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350 million.

They spent $8.57 for every $1.00 they saved.

I'm pretty sure they will do a much better job with our health care though. <wink>

Stick with Obama until somebody comes along in four more years with an inspiring message. That will be a very interesting election. Let's make BOTH parties start fresh with vision and ideas. 2016 is the year for change.
Get rid Of Obama while we still can and start fresh with visions and ideas in 2013

THE FIRST EXPOSE' OF OBAMA COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU THIS SUMMER..........

(You remember the little red diaper baby that came from no where, with every thing about his past sealed?)

An extremely important movie is coming this summer -- It is simply called "2016."

The speaker here is Dinesh D'Souza, college president in New York and author of many New York Times best sellers. The movie is from Gerald R.Molen, producer of Academy Award winning Schindler's List, JurrasicPark, Brave Heart.

It explains in plain language who Barack Obama really is, what he stands for, and the dangers of him being reelected for another four years.

Watch this short informative video preview of this movie which came out only yesterday. The preview has already been seen by over 18,000 people.Within a very short time it will have been seen by millions!

After you see the brief preview, listen to what Dinesh has to say about Obama.

"An anti-Obama documentary featuring an interview with the president’s half brother opened in a single theater in Texas during the weekend and, despite alleged complaints from some consumers who were upset with the film’s content, grossed an estimated $31,750, a strong showing for any independent release."

I hope you're continuing to show your support in the form of financial contributions for Zimmerman? That's the thing to do, Ratz. O'Mara needs to get paid, and the Zimmermans need steady food delivery, prescription refills for drug habits, and there may be a couple of bills that didn't get paid off before the SHTF. So, why don't you put your money where your mouth is and help the young man?

You seem to have a half-dark left hemisphere. What was it? A stroke, or did you trip and fall into a concrete wall?

9 Issues We Have With George Zimmerman’s Alleged Trayvon Martin Shooting Story

[EXCERPT:]

5. We do believe that Trayvon Martin may have said “You got it,” after realizing Zimmerman was carrying a gun and that was his form of submission. We find it rather odd that Zimmerman claims Martin sat up after being shot in the chest then uttered that statement. Zimmerman himself, during the interview said “I assumed he meant ‘I didn’t get it [the gun],‘I’m not going to fight anymore.’ At which point I got out from under him.”-So you mean to tell us, and we are not doctors, we do not have a law degree, but…you are clearly saying, after Trayvon was shot (in the chest) at point-blank range, that he had enough energy to deliver one last line. WTF is this, a James Cameron movie?

George Zimmerman Prosecution May Use TV Interview as Evidence

http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-pro...

[EXCERPT:] Granting the interview will likely haunt Zimmerman, veteran legal analyst and defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh told ABC News. "He has impeached himself publicly, this is going to be a huge problem for him… and the prosecutors must be extremely pleased... He was making inconsistent statements that they can use in a trial against him." (Continued:)

Yep, the prosecution has filed a motion to enter the interview into evidence.

I don't think the health care legislation went far enough either - to control costs.
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE PERPETRATED THE PERFECT LIE! And the problem is the American public will believe it. No matter what others do to educate the masses , the masses have been told for so long the rich do not pay there fair share ,WHEN IN REALITY THEY DO AND MORE, no one will believe it. LOOK UP "Progressive Tax Rate" which is what we have. The more you make, the more you pay, TRUST ME! As an overseas contractor I had to pay my own taxes. I understand taxes and I don't mind paying SOME but I would have liked to have kept half of what I payed in taxes. I could spend that money BETTER then our govt. And loopholes, EVERYBODY has them and they use them! If all Americans had to write that check quarterly, tax reform would be topic number 1!

ROMNEY’S BAIN DEPARTURE: NO ABSENTEE OWNER. The Boston Globe’s Beth Healy and Michael Kranish report:“Interviews with a half-dozen of Romney’s former partners and associates, as well as public records, show that he was not merely an absentee owner during this [after taking leave to run the Olympics in 1999]. He signed dozens of company documents, including filings with regulators on a vast array of Bain’s investment entities. And he drove the complex negotiations over his own large severance package, a deal that was critical to the firm’s future without him, according to his former associates. Indeed, by remaining CEO and sole shareholder, Romney held on to his leverage in the talks that resulted in his generous 10-year retirement package, according to former associates.

Romney kept reins on Bain, bargained hard on severance during absence
