I would not vote for Obama because he promised to let the states decide for themselves about medical marijuana and the Federal Government keeps spending our tax dollars on going after the medical marijuana businesses who are legal in that state. Where is our freedom going if the people can't vote for their own decisions.

Elizabeth Warren takes off the gloves
The freshman senator is on a roll, taking on Wall Street at every opportunity
Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts ran for the Senate as a populist hell-bent on reforming Wall Street. And after starting her tenure as something of a wallflower — much to the consternation of her fans — it appears she's ready to do just that.
Her most recent target was HSBC, which recently settled money laundering charges to the tune of $1.9 billion.
"If you're caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you're gonna go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life," Warren said, according to The Associated Press. "But evidently if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your bed at night"

Hey V, long time no see. Good post, Elizabeth is a spitfire, and exactly the kind of leader we need in office.

Hope things are going well for you.

Not everyone talks to their neighbors, Eagle, heck, those neighbors were the ones Zimmerman says looked out their doors and windows and would not get involved in the altercation after hearing cries for help.
No but they did call 911.. Nobody expects their neighbor to get in the middle of a fight.. But I guess that is a breakdown in society nowadays though.. What a pity his dad and girlfriend didn't get to know their neighbors especially living in a townhouse community..

<quoted text>Why didn't Tracey ask Chad,Brandy green's son, where Trayvon was? Why didn't Tracey notice squad cars in the neighborhood not far from where he was living if he had returned home at the time he claimed? They would have been still there. Stranger still, the police went door to door looking to identify Trayvon. They would have stopped at Brandy Green's place. If Chad was home as claimed, he could have identified him. Even stranger, Dee Dee's story is starting to come apart. She claims she was too distraught to go to Trayvon's funeral. In fact she had to go to the hospital for treatment. Yet,there are no records of this. Even stranger still what happened to Brandy Green? Seems she and Tracey are no longer an item. They need to start investigating Benjamin Crump,shyster lawyer extraordinaire. He is not looking for justice for Trayvon. He is looking to make some big money. Couldn't care a damn less about Trayvon.
Props to ya AC.. Hope you have a great weekend..

as regards GZ, I made these same arguments most of last Spring and early Summer to the same dumbarse-type posters. same result...

You idiot, an armed Zimmerman was reporting and pursuing an unarmed Martin, not the other way around.
If Zimmerman wasn't so interested in "making a bust", Trayvon would still be alive and a father wouldn't have to relive being shown a photo of his son lying dead on the ground.
Had his father stayed home that night he wouldn't have needed to see a photo.. He would have seen it first hand instead of the police showing him something that happened in his community later..

Zimmerman on Drugs With Violent Side Effects When He Killed Trayvon
While the mainstream media made sure to report with exclamations and gasps that marijuana was found in Trayvon Martin‘s system on the night that he was killed, many outlets failed to also report that the level was well below what medical studies show cause “performance impairment.” The same can not be said for George Zimmerman. According to the paramedic report, the vigilante neighborhood watch captain was on the prescription drug Temazepam, reports MSNBC com.
Temazepam, also known as Restoril, is known to cause insomnia and anxiety, reports MSNBC. But there are more important side effects that were not mentioned.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the drug is also known to cause “aggressiveness” and “hallucinations,” among other problematic symptoms.

More media spin..

"Temazepam, also known as Restoril, is known to cause insomnia and anxiety, reports MSNBC. But there are more important side effects that were not mentioned."

Tell MSNBC that Temazepam is a sleeping pill used to treat insomnia not cause it..

"According to the paramedic report, the vigilante neighborhood watch captain was on the prescription drug Temazepam, reports MSNBC com."

Once again it is taken at bedtime and Z I am sure didn't take it before the shooting occurred.. Had he he would been sound asleep instead of giving police reports..

Two enemies discover a 'higher call' in battle
By John Blake, CNN

http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/09/living/higher-c...

INTRO:

Five days before Christmas 1943, a helpless American bomber pilot locked eyes with a German fighter pilot over the frozen skies of Europe. The German pilot spared the life of the American, and both men would reunite and become friends 50 years later. Franz Stigler and Charles Brown started the war as enemies, but during a tense wartime encounter, both men discovered a higher call.

Maybe if government had upheld the laws it put on the books, we wouldn't be having a debate about what to do about illegal immigration. Maybe if we had paid attention to what the people we put in office do once they get there, we wouldn't be looking at 40% of the nation's wealth concentrated into the hands of the one percent. Maybe.

It's tough to be a human being. We do things without thinking about the possibility that some unknown monster is going to do the unthinkable to somebody we love from out of the blue. Maybe that mother shouldn't have cooked breakfast while her daughter went outside for her morning jog. If she had just stood on the front porch instead, maybe she would have seen the truck slow down in time to get her 45 out and blow the murdering rapist away before he could grab her only child.

Hindsight is always 20/20. You don't seem to be critical of George Zimmerman, but you have real problems with Trayvon Martin's father. Go figure.

Oh, of course! Nobody abuses prescription drugs in America! Adderall is the MOST abused prescription drug in America. Need a citation? Millions aren't hooked on pain pills. This just never happens. So, Zimmerman took his "go fast" during the day (just like the college students who abuse it), but when he needed to come down, he took his "go night night" pill. Both of these meds have some alarming side effects, not the least of which is paranoia. Adderall is an amphetamine. Originally, it was used for weight control/loss. Notice how GZ has packed on the pounds? Maybe he stopped taking Adderall.

Some people want to award George Zimmerman a medal for heroism in saving the good folks of Sanford from a thug, and they want Trayvon Martin's father arrested and prosecuted for child neglect and having a girlfriend he apparently "shacked up" with. There's more, but that's an overview. And, of course, we should never bring up the fact that human beings can on occasion show compassion and humanity.
