Juror B29: Zimmerman “Got Away With Murder”,“We were trying to find this man guilty”

The juror, B29, the entire legacy media complex repeatedly said they could not determine her race, spoke out today to, wait for it…. yep, ABC’s Robin Roberts.
Humor in NatureSurprisingly, now that she is visible to the rest of the world B-29′s race does not look too difficult to figure out. Go figure.
She claims she fought whitey all the way to the bitter end, demanding they find Zimmerman guilty of murder because she was not going to stand by and let him get away with it. She tried her best, but there was just too much evidence against her, and the law did not support her demands for guilt.

Too late liberal whiner.

A thug is dead and a true American lives.

What's wrong with that?

You want anarchy to prevail or what narcissist?

Get over the drama and over "it" already.

There's more thugs out there tonight thinking "twice" now before committing a crime.

You know the liberals are running scared by observing Obama and his continuous campaigning with the same old rhetorics, the same lies and the same er, um, huh, duh, etc.

You can also identify the same mentality of liberalism with any post by a liberal.

The same lies, the same old attacks (liar, pos, fu, lmao, duh syndrome, grammar attacks, etc.)

Obama will not stop campaigning and all you get is his lies.

Weather Man, the liberals who took over our educational system were the loser hippies from the 60s and 70s who never took a bath, and smoked dope all day long. They were the only ones to be in college,'cause they burned their draft cards and said they were gay. It makes me sad to say I have a college education(after I got out of the military on the GI Bill). I would never want to be put in the same category as these losers.
They still don't take baths and they are still losers.

Sad to say this about another human being but its the truth.

Obama is so great. He loves America and our military men and women.

He wants to increase the premiums and copays on all of our men and women in the military. Bless his pea-pickin heart, he wants to decrease pay raises on all of our men and women in the military.

Good news though, OBAMA wants to give American tax payer's money to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Just another example of the hard working illegal immigrants that the current administration is frenzied to give citizenship to.
Please don't be surprise if Obama doesn't open the prison gates and let him out. He needs that vote.

Either the Americans stand up and defend themselves or this will keep happening.

This is what the liberals support.

Feds: Halliburton agrees to plead guilty in Gulf oil spill

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-500395_162-575956...

AP/ July 25, 2013,

WASHINGTON Halliburton Energy Services has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence in connection with the 2010 Gulf oil spill, the Department of Justice said Thursday.

Federal officials said in a news release that a criminal information charging Hallburton with one count of destruction of evidence was filed in federal court in Louisiana.

Halliburton has agreed to pay the maximum fine, be on probation for three years and continue to cooperate with the government's criminal investigation, said the news release, which did not spell out the fine amount.

The Houston-based company has also made a $55 million voluntary contribution to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It was not a condition of the court agreement, the news release says.

Halliburton was BP's cement contractor on the drilling rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. The blowout triggered an explosion that killed 11 workers and spilled millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf.(cont.)

Racism in American Idol

10 ex-American Idol candidates are suing each for $25 million because they were discriminated against and did not win. All are minorities.

No joke. This was on the news today.

I think it is funny in several ways. One is Hollywood is always yelling racism when anyone says something against Obama now they are facing racism charges.

Oh my, too funny.

Is income inequality 'morally wrong'?

By John D. Sutter, CNN
Thu July 25, 2013

http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/25/opinion/sutter-...

[EXCERPT:]

The size of the rich-poor gap matters

Some inequality is acceptable to pretty much everyone these days. No one is arguing for a fully equal society. But the degree of inequality really does matter when you're trying to determine whether inequality is moral or amoral, said Pogge, the Yale professor. When extreme inequality sets in, that's when social and political problems follow.

His best estimate for a fair distribution is the Palma Ratio, which measures how much income the top 10% earns compared to the bottom 40%. Ideally, those amounts would be equal, meaning the country would have a Palma Ratio of one. According to a calculation cited by the Danish Institute for International Studies, the United States has a 2010 Palma Ratio of 1.852, which is about the same as Burkina Faso but not as bad as China or South Africa.(In an earlier version of this column, I incorrectly estimated the U.S. Palma Ratio based on wealth instead of income. I should have let the experts handle that, and I regret the mistake). By Pogge's assessment, that means inequality here is too high. Negative consequences for our society will result.

Inequality is bad if the poor don't benefit, too

I'll end this list back on John Rawls, the philosopher whose 1971 book, "A Theory of Justice," is a must-read (or at least a must-become-familiar-with) for people interested in this topic. One of Rawls' theories is that inequality can be justified only when it benefits everyone in society, particularly those who are most poor and vulnerable.

If Rawls were creating a society from scratch, he would design it so that, in his words, "social and economic inequalities ... are to be to the greatest benefit of the least-advantaged members of society." If the rich making more will help the poor be better off, too, that's cool. If not, it's unfair, or amoral. For real-world reference, here's a quick look at CEO pay in the United States, from the AFL-CIO: The average S&P 500 CEO compensation in 2012, according to that labor group, was $12.3 million. A worker?$35,000. Do the poor benefit from that disparity? Does everyone? Anyone? I'll leave you to fight about that in the comments.(cont.)

There's such a simple solution to your quandary. Get a job and demand your pay be equal to your bosses OR demand he takes home what you do. Either way, YOUR dilemma will be solved.
