No it isn't. I don't cause people to be rude and disrespectful like you.
It's all due to ignorant, hateful, ill-mannered people who are cowards and think they can post any vile insult and get away with it.
Hey, kind of like you too. LOL!

Shut up Rose. You are just ignorant.
She is highly influential here and smart people know it. The fact of the matter is that she actually does cause people to be rude and disrespectful here.
Just like a drug she influences the actions of those who are under the influence of her.
I was polite and respectful when I first started posting until I was influenced by her and others......
Now look at me? LOL

Not surprising that your also just another union hack trying to continue the myth of the hard working union member.
Are you also going to tell us that all illegal immigrants are hard working individuals as well just here to make a better life for their families.
Keep telling yourself that as the union continues to decline in this country. HAHAHAHA
That union dues money is funding the lefties and ain't doing diddly for the working guy.

<quoted text>I have and I do. Bottom line higgin is that I don't trust Zimmermans statements.
http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-06-0...
" Zimmerman cooperated with Sanford police...
... statements have not yet been released."
here is what is wrong and SCAREY about the STATE'S case:
it is predicated on the ASSUMPTION that GZ 'targeted' and MEANT to harm TM... THAT's wahy he was following him, period.
the State and TM/family supporters TOTALLY discount the following FACTS:
there WERE numerous burglaries in THAT NEIGHBORHOOD;
GZ was a concerned citizen as well as member of a NW;
TM was OBVIOUSLY not walking a straight line from point A to B. he didn't stop to pet a stray dog, chay up a stray girl or help a stray little ol' ladey across the street, either. he did SOMETHING that drew GZ's attention, SOMETHING that GZ, as a NW member was told to LOOK for.
it could have been as little as TM stopping and staring at a house with NO lights on.... SOMETHING out of character with a 'child' hurrying home from the store.
GZ followed TM FROM his veh UNTIL TM ran or otherwise disappeared from being seen from a weh in the street. how does a person do that, WA? they get off the sidewalk and go BETWEEN buildings... like they are either scared or evading.
that is when GZ got out to ascertain WHERE this 'suspicious acting' fellow WENT. THAT is when the dispatcher asked GZ IF he was following TM... meaning on foot as opposed to observing him from his car or home or tree house.
please note, EVERYONE, the dispatcher NEVER advised GZ that 'we don't need you to WATCH him', did he?
we know that TM advised the girl he was talking to on his WORKING cell phone... yet he did NOT call mommy or daddy and report ANYTHING, he did NOT call 911 or his cousin. what he did do, according to the girl, was turn back from going home (reportedly 70 yards away!) and TM went to 'watch' or find GZ.
GZ had broken off following TM (he lost him, remember?) and was walking either to meet the cops or back to his veh (doesn't matter if he was going to a bush to take a leak).
at NO time had GZ pulled or otherwise displayed his LEGALLY carried and concealed gun... his right as a CITIZEN and dully permitted... forget NW rules (that's a BS point).
GZ did NOT track, stalk or follow TM until he caught up to him.
TM 'found' GZ... I think they bumped into each other by chance... BECAUSE TM doubled back, period.
so far, NO harm, NO foul, NO crime, right?
the ONLY question that leaves is HOW TM, either the 'child' or 17 yr old, 5' 10/11", 150-170#, young man got GZ DOWN and was assaulting him.
IF GZ pulled his gun FIRST, TM would be the ballsiest 'child' or young man in history, wouldn't he?
IF TM did manage to ride GZ to the ground AFTER he had pulled his gun, wouldn't he be concerned with GZ's GUN HAND? instead of punching or bashing or talking to GZ? c'mon, THINK about it.
IF GZ had pulled his gun, why didn't he pull the trigger during the struggle... JUST to draw attention to the assault? why scream for help (911 tape) and ASK a passer-by to call the police (witness testimony of dog walker)? THINK.
no, I think GZ's testimony is spot on... it FITS the known facts.
it does NOT fit the ASSUMPTION of either Manslaughter OR 2nd Degree MURDER.
even the FBI can find NO malice of fore thought... other than GZ DID profile TM based on dress and actions... EXACTLY why GZ called the cops and FOLLOWED TM.
this is a case of TRAGEDY from the result of poor, immature decision making and, maybe, overzealous good citizenship.
as a kid, did you ever go out on the ice over a frozen river or pond, etc? did it ever crack under you 3/4 feet from the shore?
dumb idea, huh? I did and made it back... dry (that time!).
unfortunately, it broke under TM, didn't it? I was 14, he was 17!

If you know anyone with a double digit IQ get them to explain it to you.

tell me, brainiac, do you honestly believe that any one with a single digit IQ could operate a keyboard?

The Worst of the Ryan Budgets

Published: March 12, 2013

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/13/opinion/the...

There’s nothing wrong with President Obama speed-dating members of Congress...... But Mr. Obama should have no illusions about the core beliefs of some of his Republican dining partners, or their willingness to accept change. That was made clear on Tuesday when the House Budget Committee chairman, Representative Paul Ryan, unveiled his 2014 spending plan: a retread of ideas that voters soundly rejected, made even worse, if possible, by sharper cuts to vital services and more dishonest tax provisions.

The budget, which will surely fly through the House, was quickly praised as “serious” and job-creating by the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, though it is neither. By cutting $4.6 trillion from spending over the next decade, it would reverse the country’s nascent economic growth, kill millions of real and potential jobs, and deprive those suffering the most of social assistance.(cont.)

America is going down due to a socialist, marxist, incompetent leader. Just because you are white and have flaunted your views of dislike for most whites because you are married to a black, has blind sighted your vision to only see Obama as black and blocked the truth of the real Obama.

This man is incompetent and is destructing America. He has been very transparent in his intentions to do so.

He wants another Kenya-style government, just as in the days of his dad and granddad did when they went on their Mau Mau rampage and killed, no slaughtered thousands of their own people as a answer to starvation and rebellion against an evil and corrupted party.(Dreams from My Father)This is his intentions.

You can spew the lies but open your eyes and see the truth if you have the courage to do so.

Given your general demeanor I doubt your in management ... that is unless they now have union hotdog venders, in which case I can see you thinking your the top dog. HAHAHAHA
Your ignorance is breathtaking as is your lack of courage. You won’t admit it, but to you and your kind, this is what you won’t say out loud: poverty is profitable.

There is, and always has been a demand for cheap labor. In business, everything springs from it. Some industries, like manufacturing, figured out a way to make routine and remove the skill from their operations (e.g., introducing automation or pointing to decreasing profit margins). The result is twofold: 1) it removed the need for skilled, highly paid union workers and permitted them to be replaced by unskilled, low paid non-union workers (and here business is partially responsible for hiring illegal immigrants, the most unskilled and the most underpaid), and 2) permitted manufacturing to be shipped overseas where there’s little regulation, no laws protecting workers, no health care coverage, lots of unskilled/semi-skilled and incredibly cheap labor.

In both cases, the losers are average US blue-collar union workers and the towns and cities that dependent on and were composed of blue-collar union citizens.

You cavalierly accept this reality of a permanent impoverished class. To you, the poverty is good.

Yes, now loook at you.

Disrespected, mocked, laughed at, ridiculed, mistrusted and rejected.

How weak do you have to be to blame some anonymous person on the Internet for the things you post?

"It's her fault, she made me do it."

You really are one sad little clown pos.

When will you fringers ever take responsibility for anything?

So you don’t approve of the Mau Mau Uprising? You do know that it was an attempt by tribal Kenyans to secure freedom and independence from British colonial rule? Sound familiar?
