Zimmerman fans would prefer to make assumptions/fantasies/smears about how Mr. Martin would have acted if he had lived over and above Zimmerman's past.
And Trayvon fans would prefer to act as if either Travyon's attack on Zimmerman didn't happen, or that it was justified somehow....

Talk about living in a fantasy........pitiful

Dan Rather lost his job because he used documents that CBS felt were not vetted- and those documents had to do with Bush not taking a required physical.
It had NOTHING to do with how Bush got into the National Guard in the first place- with the National Guard being a way for people with connections to avoid the draft and not being sent to Vietnam.
So let's not pretend that Bush didn't use connections to skip to the head of the line to get into the Nation Guard, since he did, or that he wasn't AWOL, since he was, or did not have a cocaine 'habit'.
No matter what you say GW has more character in his little finger then Obama has or will ever have in his whole body!

I agree with that. Obama has no character whatsoever. You know, Barefoot reminds me of him.

Yes Blacks can walk in white neighborhoods. What they cannot do is circle around behind someone, throw them to the ground, and bang their head on the sidewalk. That will get you shot dead. So where is the civil rights suit Momma, and Holder, and Uncle Al wanted so they can drag this incident out?

Oh boy, here's our weekly shooting rampage:
(quote)
Gunfire and an explosion at one of two separate but related shootings in Dallas and neighboring DeSoto has left four people dead and four more injured.

DeSoto police took the suspected shooter into custody without incident at the second shooting scene. Police identified the suspect as Erbie Bowser.

Police said Bowser is being held at DeSoto Jail pending charges and further details will be forthcoming after he is officially charged.

Bowser was part of the Dallas Mavericks "Mavs ManiAACs" male dance team. He was listed on the ManiAACs page for last season and described himself as a special education teacher.

Mesquite Independent School District confirmed Bowser was employed as a special education teacher and a volunteer coach in the district from 2001 to 2010. According to the district, he worked at Mesquite Academy, Berry Middle School and West Mesquite High School until he resigned in 2010. The district said Bowser was not terminated.

Police did not detail Bowser's relationship to the victims in either shooting, but a family member of some of the Dallas victims said Bowser was in a relationship with her daughter, who was killed in the shooting.

Police in Dallas and DeSoto, as well as agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, are working on investigating the case.
