Maybe you don't get a paycheck? But don't worry it won't be long until you see price increases at everything you look at.

It's what happens when those who sell merchandise to us and provide services for us. When either the economy goes down or their cost of business goes up,so do the prices.

Doesn't matter if your a Billionaire republican or a democrat getting a welfare check. It's a hell of a lot more than a hit on an income tax return ya know.
You post to me but you don't understand me. Let's see....

You responded to me with your post when I posted...

"God Bless Our President"

The Heavenly Father knew exactly what I meant. But you didn't.

You live in darkness...darkness of the mind.

Since you've decided to ignorantly interfere with a request that I make to The Lord when I say "God Bless our President," this is what I mean...

Lord Jesus, give our President Obama the wisdom, courage, perseverance and dedication to lead the people of the great land of America.

Let his life and work shine as a beacon of Hope to people of lands throughout the world.

Continue to mold him and shape him. We are clay in your hands, Holy One. Mold us all according to your will, your way.

The enemies of the President are all about him, seeking to trap him; to smear him; to undercut him. Lord, humble his enemies; make them his footstool. Soften their hearts so that they'll work with our President to help all Americans.

Lord, continue to instill in him the desire to see every American with a job that wants one; a desire in him to see that our seniors are cared for in the twilight of their lives; a desire to see to the welfare and safety of our children.

Lord Jesus, bless our President Obama to continue to look out for the women of our nation. Oh Lord, the women of America (and the world) bear a heavy burden. They are the nurturer of our children, yet we treat them so terribly bad. Give our President the continued presence to lift our up our women...

Whether it is in seeing them get equal pay for equal work or providing the proper medical care for their bodies without the intrusion of politicians or providing the tools to take care of their children and parents or the tools to separate women from violence...please Lord, bless our President.

Bless our President to set policies and guidelines to lead America forward to its best and brightest days.

Lord Jesus...we know that there is nothing impossible with You. Bless our President to make the impossible possible. Open doors, Jesus, for breakthroughs in Peace, breakthroughs in Bipartisanship, breakthroughs in employment, breakthroughs in the fiscal health of our nation, breakthroughs in the violence all about us.

Lord God, Bless our President. Bless his wife Michelle and bless their two lovely daughters. Bless his advisors and all those at the levers of power in our nation.

Thank You, Lord.

That's interesting.
I'll look into that a bit more. If that's the case, that's damning to Thug Zimmerman's defense.
It may be one of the hurdles that "pro bono" O'Mara is having problems with, thus the continuances.
O'Mara is known to plead his clients. Maybe that's in the works too.
I need to look into it more too. It was just something I hadn't thought of, or heard about before, even though his dad, brother, and friend were quite vocal in the beginning.

As for the events, Zimmerman stalked Martin with a loaded weapon.
As for your proclaimed "attacked," we already know Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. Again, that's not in question.
And trust me, they are not "separate" as you claim.
It's not my claim, it's the law.

When a heated situation is over, it's over. You cannot use revenge as an excuse for a past incident. After Zim lost track of Martin, that situation ended, It did not give Martin any right to attack him later on.

If I get into a screaming match with my neighbor, I cannot come out the next day, punch him in the face and claim it was in self-defense. When we parted the previous day, that ended the event.

Zimmerman did not stalk Martin. He followed him for about ten seconds and stopped at the request of the dispatcher. To say he stalked Martin is no different than if I take a walk to the store and happen to be behind another pedestrian. That's not stalking, and Zim was never charged with it. Stalking and following are two entirely different things.

Shrub inherited the best economy we had seen for decades. He gave his crones tax breaks and effed up the economy in untold ways and not only the USA suffered, the world economy suffered. Not to worry, Obama is leading us out of it.

His cronies? That's not what DumBama said. DumBama kept the tax breaks for most of us--most of us as in those who got a Bush tax break. Taxes are now higher for the minority of those who received a tax break which are the wealthy. Most of the money in the tax breaks went to the middle-class.

When you have some time, I suggest you wiki or google "tech bubble" and learn a little more about the Clinton years.

Your first paragraph is almost correct.
The fact that Zimmerman chased Trayvon at all will be a turning point in the trial.
So Zimmerman took an action that was not illegal, and that will be the turning point of the trial? Is he being tried for following or murder?

Your side is putting way too much stock in that short ten second chase. But then again, that's all you have.

Don't forget Zimmerman made sure he disconnected from LE before he chased Trayvon down.
And shot him to death.
He couldn't pass his criminal justice classes but he must have learned a little bit.
No, he followed Martin while he was on the phone with 911 and stopped at the dispatchers request. As they continued to talk, that gave Martin more than ample time to leave the scene and just go home. Zimmerman didn't "disconnect" with 911. The call ended mutually by both parties and there was nothing more to say.

Ah yes, public education rearing it's ugly head again. Where did I state it was a timetable? I never said that. What I said is that it's a list of undisputed facts. What undisputed means is that neither side can deny those events took place. It's not debatable.

Not only that, but he left his vehicle against NW rules, against LE monthly instructions and against the dispatcher saying "we don't need you to do that".
The jury will have no problem discerning his motive.
I wish one of you Martin supporters would take the time to listen to the 911 call before promoting your fallacies. Zimmerman left the car BEFORE the dispatcher said "we don't need you to do that." It's very clear by the chiming inside of the car and the door slamming. HTF could the dispatcher tell Zimmerman not to do something that he wasn't doing at the time?

That is true, but dispatchers do give information that the police tell them to give in certain situations.

What these people are trying to do is reinvent the story to fit their liking. It won't be reinvented in court. All the facts of the case will certainly prove that Martin (even if defending himself) went way beyond self-defense and into assault. As such, Zim was legally allowed to defend himself from assault. He was not defending himself against self-defense.

Had it just been a broken nose, okay, it's a long shot, but he could have been defending himself. Or they might assert that Zim didn't stop after his nose was broken and that led to the black eyes. But when witnesses and injuries show that Martin was pounding Zim's head into the cement, there are no doubts whether it was self-defense or assault.

So what it's going to boil down to is that ten second chase Zim gave after Martin ran. That's it. But that chase does not prove murder, assault or self-defense. It only proves that Zim ran after Martin for a few seconds and then stopped.

There was no heated exchange of anything. Zimmerman simply lost sight of his target. The fact that Martin turned the tables on him doesn't mean you just "reset" everything. As on attorney put it, syg doesn't put a person in a protective bubble.

Martin had already broken off at the vehicle when no event had occurred. Zimmerman pursued with a loaded weapon.

In your example, instead of coming out the next day and punching your neighbor, a person in Texas who had gone over to his neighbors actually stood his ground in his neighbors yard and shot him claiming self defense.

The problem with you people is the first assumption you make is Zimmerman is correct in anything he had done that night. Once you do that, you can explain anything he did as singular, separate events of your choosing. You refuse to see the forest from the trees.
Yeah

Yep. And if people just see the confrontation as you prefer from the point of the shooting, all the jury would have is Zimmerman's words to "explain" away his actions.

That's all you have as long as it's crafted in a bubble.

How do you figure I brought up and used any words in a "VERY derogatory way". Of what I read---the whole thread is derogatory.
And childish. I've read a few posts that make valid logical sense based on reason then see the reply about how thugzimmerthugman hunted down the innocent child of 17.
That's you that says that alot right? I'm still getting to know posters here.
The bible and church I need huh,,,to be saved. I think what you know is in your soul will get you there, if that's what it is. Heaven. All the religion I see today is discusting by it's actions. I'll leave it at that.
Stupid conversation is a boor, reasoning and advancing conversation is more to my liking.
BTBF, zazz, Barefoot2626, Yeah, are hard core racist welfare recipients who hide behind the anonymity of the Internet to demonize republicans and any other white person, rich or poor, who doesn't wholeheartedly agree with EVERYTHING they say.

First and foremost, they are LIARS, they have way too much time on their hands since they have refused to accept any kind of personal responsibility, and they go to great lengths to hide their racial and gender identities. Only zazz will state that she's a white woman, which I believe to be a lie. I think she's Be Truthful Be Frees sock puppet.
