Sort of on topic-sort of off topic.

For all you liberals out there who are relishing the fact that Paula Deen looks suicidal or about to have a complete breakdown for comments she made and she isn't "SORRY ENOUGH, DAMMIT," you might want to read the lyrics from your Hip Hop superstars and tell me when their verbal lynchings will begin.
The hypocrisy from the left on this is so blatant a blind man could see it but by god, she's rich and she's white. GET HER!
=== but by the same token, there's not to be ONE unkind word about the prosecutions key witness in the Zimmerman case.
She gets a pass on her bizarre performance for two reasons. One she's African American and two Obama already weighed in on this case when he said if he had a son he would have looked like Trayvon.
For all of you who don't know what that translates to, it means Obama hopes Zimmerman is found guilty regardless of the facts.

No, TX is sucking money from the rest of the U.S.
"Texas, Run by Secessionist Guv, Has Received More Federal Disaster Relief Than Any State"

"According to FEMA's website, Texas has been the site of 13 "major disaster declarations" since Perry took office following George W. Bush's departure in 2001. That includes five instances of severe storms and flooding, two tropical storms, one "extreme wildfire threat," and Hurricanes Claudette, Rita, Dolly, and Ike.(Texas received significant federal assistance following Hurricane Katrina, but it did not appear on FEMA's website in the "major disaster declaration" category.)"

Obviously, you don't think before you type."

Bush, Sr lost his Citizenship when he was sworn in as a Representative from TX, not a formal member of the Union since 1861.
"Graduating in 1948, he moved his family to West Texas and entered the oil business, becoming a millionaire by the age of 40.
He became involved in politics soon after founding his own oil company, serving as a member of the House of Representatives, among other positions."

George W. Bush swore his allegience to a Foriegn Power on January 17, 1995.
Jesus said "A man cannot serve two masters".
Yes, He did, but He wasn't talking about foreign powers. He was talking about money.

Matthew 6:24 [Jesus said]“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

What does Texas being the site of 13 major disaster relief areas in recent years have to do with anything, Miner? Are you trying to say that Bush or Governor Perry somehow colluded with the weather to create said disasters? Do you think Texas has never been the site of a federal disaster area before?(Ever heard of the notorious hurricane of 1900, which devasted Galveston, TX? One of the worst national disasters in American history).

Miner, do you have any idea how stupid you look with this "Texas isn't part of the United States" nonsense? It's about the most desperate, amateurish, thread-bare "let's-smear-Bush" ploy I've ever heard of, and by now I've heard plenty. It's pathetic, Miner, especially considering it's an attempt to defend a sitting POTUS by attacking one who left office MORE THAN FOUR YEARS AGO. And may I point out that if neither Bush Sr. nor Bush Jr. were legally POTUS, then neither was Lyndon Johnson, from whose "Great Society" programs almost all other social welfare programs have sprung.

If that weren't enough, you get your raw material from MOTHERJONES?? That alone tells me all I need to know about your credibility, Miner.

Again, where was Bush on 9/12/06, the day after our real Embassy in Syria was attacked?
Let's see, Syria: The attackers didn't breach the compound walls, they were driven off by an adequate defensive force, and they killed... all with no Americans being killed or injured.

Now Benghazi: The inadequately defended compound was breached, the attackers left when they were ready to leave, and we could not return to the compound for an investigation for over two weeks. There were no terrorist bodies found and, after nine long months, nobody is in custody nor has anyone been brought to trial for the attack. And, of course, our Ambassador and three other Americans were killed.

Apples and oranges comparison.

"Al-Qaeda has its origins in the uprising against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Thousands of volunteers from around the Middle East came to Afghanistan as mujahideen, warriors fighting to defend fellow Muslims. In the mid-1980s, Osama bin Laden became the prime financier for an organization that recruited Muslims from mosques around the world. These "Afghan Arab" mujahideen, which numbered in the thousands, were crucial in defeating Soviet forces.
After the Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan, bin Laden returned to his native Saudi Arabia. He founded an organization to help veterans of the Afghan war, many of whom went on to fight elsewhere (including Bosnia) and comprise the basis of al-Qaeda.
Bin Laden also studied with radical Islamic thinkers and may have already been organizing al-Qaeda when Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990. Bin Laden was outraged when the government allowed U.S. troops to be stationed in Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam. In 1991 he was expelled from Saudi Arabia for anti-government activities.

As far as I know, the USA isn't occupying Yemen, Uzbekistan and definitely not Libya or Africa. Thanks to obama's inexperience and lack of diplomacy, we've already been thrown out of Iraq, and we're currently in the process of being run out of Afghanistan.

But it was a nice side-step... what other dance moves do you have. But, sereiously Miner, the pink tutu and matching slippers have to go.

Methinks you're talking out of your posterior!

He SHOULD be staying out of the case altogether. You may recall that I've said Obama won't hesitate to play the race card when it suits him. Never mind whether he really believes there's a true racial component to an issue: he'll use it to further his socialist goals. I think this is a good example of that.

From what I've seen of the so-called "star witness," she's disgusting. She "can't write or read cursive"?!? She must have dropped out of school by the 8th grade. I'm no racist, but THIS woman is a walking stereotype.

zimmerman's stupidity cost a human life. That is inexcusable.
The Idiot was Not supposed to have a gun in the first place Because 'neighborhood watch' patrols are civilian, and not trained properly with firearms. At the very least, the jackass should do ten years for manslaughter. Murder is not out of the question, but jail time should result in this trial.
Know why he had the gun? he wanted to know what it felt like to shoot a man, or kid, or girl or anything living and breathing.
Lis is right about one thing; that 'star' witness sounded like she had OD'd on sedatives before taking the stand. I wanted to scream at the TV, "SPEAK UP!!

I didn't say that, Lyndi did, but I agree. She is at least angry and not going to be cooperative with the defense. The constant "sir" is really her disdain for him. I agree BH, Zimmerman was being alot egotistical in his self assigned role.He may not have intended the death of Martin but he deserves some consequence.

He probably does deserve some consequence but from the letter of the law he seems not guilty. I believe he was the one being attacked. Why call the police if your going to shoot the guy? Trayvons dad originally said it was not his kids voice on the 911 call. Zimmerman had injuries. To much evidence points to his innocence in a self defense case. JMO.

Things that make you go humm. So who knows how many people have been killed since Trayvon? Most at least around here make the news once and never again. This case had the President of the U.S. speak to it. All the buzz on local radio today is that Zimmerman faked his injuries. Again things that make you go humm. I've seen a few cars that say "justice for Trayvon" on them. Hope this thing doesn't end in riots.

Well, you'd probably do better than Bachmann:
"U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota stood before New Hampshire Republicans with a tea bag clutched in her hand Saturday, but her grasp on Revolutionary War geography wasn't quite as tight. Before headlining a GOP fundraiser, the possible presidential hopeful told a group of students and conservative activists in Manchester, "You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord," according to video posted online by WMUR-TV.
But those first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired in Massachusetts, not New Hampshire. Though Bachmann probably wasn't the first to confuse Concord, N.H., with Concord, Mass., her mistake was striking given her roots in the Tea Party movement, which takes its name from the dumping of tea into Boston Harbor by angry American colonists in December 1773, 16 months before the Battle of Lexington Green."
Or McCain and Romney:
"In 2008, Senator John McCain, the Republican Presidential nominee, spoke of Czechoslovakia, even though that nation had divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia fifteen years earlier, in 1993.
Now, in 2012, Mitt Romney, the Republican Presidential nominee, talked last night of Syria being the Iranian route to the Mediterranean Sea, even though Iraq stands between Iran and Syria."
Or Santorum and Bachmann:
"He cited development money that went to fight the AIDS pandemic in Africa: "It was a country on the brink," he said, adding that it was a ripe region for radical Islamists.
Africa, of course, is a continent, not a country. And we've heard this mistake before.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Santorum's primary rival, also made a geographical mix-up about Africa at an earlier debate, saying "Now with the president, he put us in Libya. He is now putting us in Africa. We already were stretched too thin, and he put our special operations forces in Africa."
Holy Cow!
Everyone of them was a Republican Presidential candidate...
Unlike obama, I bet not one of those Republicans has even been in 57 of the 58 states of the USA.

A spokesman for Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George told The Hill on Tuesday that Issa had requested investigators “narrowly focus on tea party organizations."
"The Associated Press on Wednesday confirmed that liberal and progressive groups were subjected the same treatment that conservative groups had complained about, including excessive questioning and extremely long waits. The liberal group Catholics United, for instance, waited seven years before receiving tax exempt status, far longer than any tea party group was forced to wait."

So Issa massages the criteria for political advantage, how patriotic to twist the facts for political motives.
I look forward to the Democrats bringing several of those groups in as witnesses. To date, they haven't produced even "one" example. Such is the way when the government investigates themselves... I wonder why the courts don't do that for all trials?

The feds can make as many claims as they want, but where are the actual victims... victims that can be questioned, and verified?

"Let's see, Syria: The attackers didn't breach the compound walls, they were driven off by an adequate defensive force, and they killed... all with no Americans being killed or injured."

Sure, they didn't breach the EMBASSY's walls...

In Libya it was an covert safehouse, that's a risk you take when you slip into a country to neigotiate with a rebel government during a time of civil unrest.

So a planned attack on our EMBASSY in Syria leaves 4 dead and no one is fired?
If your personnel are killed in an attack something is wrong with your security.

You think everything is great 'cause no Americans were killed?
No need to fire anyone because of the security failure because only the brown people were killed?

OK, who lost their job because of the intelligence failures that led to 3000 dead Americans on 9/11/01?

Where was Bush on 9/12/01?

Oh yeah, waving bye-bye to the bin Laden family as they escaped to Saudi Arabia on the only flights Bush authorized to fly the day after 9/11.

"Even though American airspace had been shut down, the Bush administration allowed a jet to fly around the US picking up family members from 10 cities, including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Boston and Houston.
Some 140 high ranking Saudi officials were also on the plane."

Who got fired when Reagan lost 17 Americans in a terror attack at the US Embassy Beirut?

"The April 18, 1983 United States embassy bombing was a suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, that killed 63 people, mostly embassy and CIA staff members, several soldiers and one Marine. 17 of the dead were Americans."

Or when his security failures led to 241 dead Marines and soldiers at the Marine Barracks in Beirut?

"In the attack on the American barracks, the death toll was 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers, along with sixty Americans injured, representing the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since World War II's Battle of Iwo Jima, the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the first day of the Vietnam War's Tet Offensive, and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II."

Let's see, 17+241=258 DEAD AMERICANS, 60 times the number killed at the CIA safehouse in Benghazi...

Did Reagan get impeached?

No, he, like Bush after the embassy security failures on his watch was re-elected.

And no one was "fired"...

Of course, Reagan and Bush are white folks so they get a pass for their intelligence failures that led to 3,258 DEAD AMERICANS.

Not to mention Bush's 4,000 DEAD AMERICANS in the WRONG COUNTRY in a War of Lies.

How do you conservatives even look at yourself in the mirror?

I think it will end up as a manslaughter verdict (I think they have that option). But I still think there will be some rioting even then. But according to the stand your ground law he really is innocent IMO.

""Texas isn't part of the United States" nonsense"

Not my fault Texas never met the requirements for readmission to the Union, it's just a historical fact and a matter of public record:

"President Andrew Johnson appointed Union General Andrew J. Hamilton, a prominent politician before the war, as the provisional governor on June 17. He granted amnesty to ex-Confederates if they promised to support the Union in the future, appointing some to office. However, it was not until March 30, 1870, that the United States Congress permitted Texas' representatives to take their seat in Congress,[16] although Texas did not meet all the formal requirements for readmission."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_in_the_Ame...

Obama's birth certificate is held in the Public Records of the State of Hawaii.

Thanks to Article IV, Section 1 of the US Constitution every other State must honor the birth certificate:

"the "Full Faith and Credit Clause", addresses the duties that states within the United States have to respect the "public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Faith_and_C...

And Hawaii is part of the Union, they never committed open, armed rebellion against the Constitution of the United States.

Yep. It had been some time since I heard something so far out. Reminds me of after Katrina when people insisted Bush blew out the levees. Just so much crap. I'm sure if he could relive that day Zimmerman never would have never followed him. But he did a very stupid thing and now here we are.
