If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for the selfish or local purposes.

Well I appreciate any new information that I don't already have, but don't you think it a bit premature to come to a conclusion of what someone does or does not know from only two sentences? You must be highly intuitive.
Thanks. Sometimes my highly intuitive nature causes me to form premature conclusions just as others excuse Obama because of the faults of his predessors.

Oh? People are just supposed to take his word for it that it was "self-defense" I guess. No questions asked. Just let Neighborhood Watch volunteers shoot strangers at will if they look "suspicious." Got it.

Unbelievable how some of you people think or that you even believe the things you post.

Why is so much focus on the Zimmerman case? While the media keeps a low profile about this.

Wasn't Zimmerman just running errands with a loaded gun, a bullet in the chamber, high on prescription Temazespam and Adderall at the time he killed a man?

That's a lot of "ifs," SC.
I don't believe Martin is on trial for drug use though.
Zimmerman was pretty aggressive himself. Should we see his toxicology report?
Sure you can see his.. Oh yea they didn't take one just like the ME not knowing protocol of using different sticks to scrape under fingernails or even getting clippings.. What was his words again?? Oh yea "Thats not my job".. LOL what a crime lab.. ;-)

It's becoming all too obvious how you 'people' can only recognize truth and justice by color.

You should learn about temazespam and know it shuts down part of your brain.. There is no high there only sleeping.. I take 15mg's a night..

I didn't mention anyone's color at all. YOU "people" seem to be the ones obsessed with the race issue and always bring it up.

I think truth and justice should apply and prevail no matter what a person's race or ethnicity is. Can you say the same?

The Zimmerman trial is about a man claiming "self-defense" after he shot and killed an unarmed teenager. No color involved as far as I'm concerned.

You know an awful lot about drugs. You must be a druggy yourself. Quit over medicating yourself, or you'll be "man under the street". Better yet, go snort a line or two.

I am sure sleeping and maybe mixed with a fast heart rate.. Hell I don't know on that one.. But I am telling you if he took his sleeping pill before the shooting he would have been asleep and not walking around a police station.. The drug don't work that way.. Noticed how I am still awake?? I should have taken my pills hours ago and fixing to..

You do have to laugh at some of his post---he is right on about Mexico Rose and Sucker NTR.
lol at your last two sentences.
I guess I needed to laugh with all this corruption and evilness in America, especially the ones sleeping in the WH.
Yes!
He is quite funny.
But supposedly there are two!
I seems to be a good guy, the other VERY obnoxious to me.
I have no clue who it is.
Don't care for that matter :)

If WE didn't 'laugh' occasionally, we'd be loony tune from ALL this scandalous MESS.

Laughter IS the BEST medicine! <3

Sorry for that video. It isn't the best quality, but the message at the beginning was spot on.

Here are the lyrics and another one :)


"Monster"
Suicide
America
~-~

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

(Suicide)
The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching

(America)
America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster
