The stock market is improving. It tanked in 2007 under Shrub Jr and is poised to soar to new record levels.

Obama's putting our economy back on track. He couldn't have done it sooner because little Shrub had devastated not only our economy but the world economy.

You're going to need to do a little better than that.

First off, we're not talking about the city of London, you Stupid Fool. We're talking about the good ole U.S. of A.

If it were merely about picking a city in the world, that would be easy. You give me a city and I could give you a city involving another race. Also, you should read EVERY paragraph in that article.

It doesn't fully support your position, even in London.

Next time I want to know about London I will let you know. In the meantime, tell the Queen I said hello. She'll remember me.

Tell the Prince of Wales AKA the Duke of Cornwall AKA the Duke of Rothesay AKA The Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland AKA the Earl of Chester AKA the Baron of Renfrew AKA the Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter AKA Lord of the Isles AKA Prince Charles AKA Charlie Boy (to me and others), that...

He may as well keep all those high falutin titles 'cause the 'King of England' ain't gonna be one of them.

The Queen is gonna be on the throne another 60 years. Maybe one of her great-great-great grand kids will be the next monarch of England, but it sure ain't gonna be good ole Charlie Boy.

Maybe he could go and buy a country and make himself King. Then he could make Romney his president if Romney's cronies could scrape up enough cash.

HA!

No, but the state's version will. You know the one where they use facts not imagination.
The report detailed two open wounds on the back of Zimmerman’s head, one two centimeters and one half a centimeter, which did not require stitches. She described his head as “normocephalic and atraumatic’’— normal and without injuries.
There is nothing "normal" about head injuries. Do you really think that Zim's plea of self-defense relies on how serious the wounds were? You have to be kidding me. If somebody is bashing my head into the cement, I don't care if the only injury is to my hair. I'm shooting and killing the lowlife.

Picture of GZ's head injury that will be presented to the jury, and you can use all the measurements you want:

A dead innocent child. You mean like Martin was riding his tricycle licking his lollypop and holding his stuffed teddybear against his chest when he was shot? LOL! innocent child. Innocent children don't get kicked out of school for suspicion of theft and narcotics--criminals do.

They said they can't prove who was yelling (can't compare Martin's voice), but they are positive it wasn't Zimmerman yelling.
Oh...... they did, did they?

"Background sounds of yelling for help in 9-1-1 calls
In recordings of the 9-1-1 calls, yells for help are audible in the background. Zimmerman's family says it was Zimmerman yelling for help, Martin's family says it was Martin yelling for help, and independent audio analysts offer differing opinions as to who was yelling for help.

Independent audio experts vary in their interpretations of the low-quality audio of the phone recordings, which one expert compared to analyzing low-resolution video from a security camera.[227] The FBI was not able to determine whether it was Zimmerman or Martin who could be heard yelling out for help in 9-1-1 calls, citing both poor audio quality and "the extreme emotional state of the person screaming."[228][229] Two expert audio technicians, listed as possible witnesses for the prosecution, analyzed the emergency calls made during the altercation and concluded that the screams did not come from Zimmerman.[230]

In an interview with prosecutors on March 19, Zimmerman's father identified the yells as George Zimmerman's, stating, "There is no doubt who is yelling for help. It is absolutely my son." Other relatives of Zimmerman, including his brother, concur and are equally adamant.[231] During a bond hearing on June 29, the 9-1-1 recording was played in court, and Zimmerman's father testified that "it was definitely George's" voice heard yelling for help in the recorded 9-1-1 call.[232]

According to police reports, after listening to audio recordings of the 9-1-1 calls, Martin's father, Tracy Martin, told police investigators that it was not Trayvon Martin's voice yelling for help.[206] Martin has since told reporters he was uncertain at that time, but that when he heard an enhanced recording on March 16 he was convinced it was his son yelling for help. Investigators interviewed Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, who reviewed the 9-1-1 calls to police and identified the voice crying for help as her son.[223] Investigators also interviewed Martin's cousin who stated that without a doubt "on a stack of bibles" it was Martin yelling for help on the 9-1-1 tape.[233][234]
During the FBI investigation, Witness 45, a neighbor of Zimmerman's, stated he was 110% sure the voice calling for help was Zimmerman's.

We'll go by the Medical Examiner's autopsy report on Trayvon.

That is a very accurate description of him, just 13 hours after his death.

His family's estimates are what they believed him to be. Nothing wrong with that. Yes, family members can guess or estimate wrong about a family member's height and weight. Happens all the time.

The Medical Examiner's report on Trayvon's height and weight isn't based on guesses or estimates. It is based on empirical evidence. It is based on reality.

The Medical Examiner says Trayvon was 5'11" inches in height and 158 pounds in weight.

Only a Fool will continue to argue with Truth and Facts. ONLY a Fool.

According to Merriam-Webster...
(Pay close attention to the first three definitions, as the fourth one is quite a doozy and will throw your so-called mind in a tailspin).

EMPIRICAL:
Adjective
1: originating in or based on observation or experience (empirical data)
2: relying on experience or observation alone often without due regard for system and theory (an empirical basis for the theory)
3: capable of being verified or disproved by observation or experiment (empirical laws)
4: of or relating to empiricism

Carrying a gun is very relevant.

The "approximate (last seen) location" of Trayvon should have been when the scareddy cat was in his vehicle and Trayvon running AWAY from him.

The second degree murder charge says it was very relevant that Thug Zimmerman was carrying a loaded gun.

Try again.

Martins father said it was not his son on the tape yelling when he gave his first statement. It's in the police report.
