Pretty much. But what's your point? Look at you vultures wanting revenge on Zman because you only see the "whitey" in him and ignore his hispanic ethnicity.
"He was not perfect, no, but he did have dreams and plans for his future."
By all means do share what his dreams and plans for the future were?
Staying alive? Maybe he should had thought twice about being a bullying thug.
Besides, not all dreams come true. Maybe Trayvon should had thought in realistic ways than in "dreams". Maybe his dreams and plans was to be top thug. Didn't get very far did he?

That you're a racist.

I could care less what Zimmerman's race or ethnicity is.

As posted in a previous post, Martin planned on attending college and studying Avionics.

It's only your opinion that he was a "bullying thug". To most, he was just another teenager who found himself in a position he should have not been put in.

Maybe you're just too racist to post anything productive on the issue? He lost his life, but to many that now see him as a martyr, he has earned a legacy that will be used to further expose racism in this country.

If anyone "incites hate" here, it's YOU, POS, Quirky, Reality, all your friends using anonymous proxies and sign-in names like "Roses Used Tampons" and worse.

It's YOU people who spread the hate on these threads, and you always have. Look around, hypocrite. Who are the people posting all the hate, the gossip, the lies about me, and then you nasty little b*tches all pile on like the mindless idiots you are.

And you dare accuse ME of "inciting hate," you pitiful excuse for a man? Grow a pair, you mealy-mouthed weasel.

FU, you lying, disgusting little punk.

You make me sick to my stomach. I have a cat who has more balls than you!

I'm showing respect and my support for a teenage boy who was shot and MURDERED by a cowardly punk just like YOU. He didn't commit "great bodily harm," and he did not force Zimmerman to kill him in "self-defense."

You believe Zimmerman's lies because you WANTED to, and he killed Martin because he WANTED to, not because he had to.

GFY, you miserable, ignorant fool.

Testimony: Town manager suspected Maine politician was corrupt
http://www.pressherald.com/news/swan-trial-co...
'You're not fooling anybody,' the ex-Chelsea town manager allegedly told Carole Swan.

Former Chelsea Selectwoman Carole Swan, who is on trial facing multiple charges of fraud, took a particular interest in a Windsor Road culvert replacement project in 2007, climbing down into a deep crater to the stream bed below.

That was the testimony Monday in U.S. District Court of Peter Hanson, who attended a pre-bid meeting at the washed-out road site with three contractors that included Swan's husband, Marshall Swan.

However, even as the town sought grants to do a permanent fix, the makeshift repair failed in the heavy storm in April 2007, and the culvert pipe itself washed down Togus Stream, collapsing the roadbed. Because of the heavy storm damage, the Windsor Road culvert repair qualified for funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Marshall Swan Construction submitted the low bid and won the contract. Swan abstained from the vote.

Marshall Swan Construction billed the town $130,000 for the culvert, which the prosecutor maintains is more than twice the cost of the pipe itself. In all, the project cost $396,980 and was completed in September 2007.

Furthermore, azzhole I'll put anything in my avatar I choose, whether the rest of you hateful, stupid fascists like it or not.

Now have a field day replying like you reply to my EVERY post, even when they're not addressed to you, wimp. You're a coward, Ralff, you support cowards like Zimmerman and every weak little out there who thinks a gun makes him a real man. You got beat up a lot in grade school I'm sure, and I bet anything Zimmerman did too, and he lied his way out of every jam he's ever been in, someone always came to his rescue. He looked like a little boy in that courtroom who'd just wet his diaper.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell Scandal Spills Over to Ken Cuccinelli
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/07...
With a spiraling ethics scandal, Gov. Bob McDonnell has gone from political role model to cautionary tale—and he may take his would-be successor down with him. Michelle Cottle reports.

Yep. Turns out Virginia’s AG has enjoyed Williams’s largesse as well. Admittedly, his gifts were nowhere near as nice as McDonnell’s. The monetary value of Williams’s gifts to Cucinelli has been estimated at a comparatively measly $18,000, some $5,000 of which the AG initially failed to disclose. Still, it’s the thought that counts, right? And one can only presume that Cuccinelli and Williams’s friendship will become that much closer if the AG gets promoted to governor. Further cementing the friendship, Cuccinelli has bought several thousand shares of Star Scientific since 2010, the reporting of which he has, at times, been a bit lax about. But, hey, he’s a busy guy. Who has time to worry about complying with all those legal niceties?

You can believe anything you like. The jury apparently couldn't overcome "reasonable doubt". It's really a pity for all of us in America and a tragic conclusion for Trayvon's parents who were seeking justice for their son.
Hi NTR,

Did you see Anderson's Cooper interview of one juror?

Very revealing about what went on during deliberations. They were confused by the laws and they were not all in agreement with the verdict until the very end. One wanted second degree, a few manslaughter and the rest acquittal. You can imagine that the most dominant personality convinced the others how to vote.

They didn't know what they were doing or what it meant.

Letters: Government corruption: Country going downhill
http://www.nj.com/hunterdon-county-democrat/i...
To the editor:

It seems every time a new politician comes onto the scene in Congress and people start to feel a little better about having an honest straightforward person in an otherwise inept and corrupt legislative body, one of two things happens. After one term in the Senate or a maximum of two terms in the House of Representatives, they either give into the corrupt powers that control Congress or they quit politics.

I may be wrong, but consider these recent examples. There are two up and coming contenders in the Republican Party that a few years ago seemed to be a breath of fresh air in the world of Washington politics, but within the past several weeks they seem to have gone from fresh air to fog and smog.

Fog: In the past when asked questions they seemed to give straight forward answers. Now when asked something they do not want to answer, the question gets lost in the fog and is ignored. They do answer with something, but it has nothing to do with the question. The Washington same old, same old.

Smog: Telling one group of people how they feel about a topic, then telling a different group a totally different story, and then try to reconcile the two. It’s just more pollution coming out of Congress.

Who is to blame? Our country seems to be in a death spiral, the only recourse we the people still have is the vote, but 50% of Americans still do not vote.

Happy 4th of July and Happy Birthday America and many more to come, or should it be “And how many more to come?”

Because you want to anger folks here and elsewhere.
Like I have said before. You love to incite hate and that is exactly what commies like to do.
That's another of your ignorant accusations.

I don't put anything in my avatar pic ever to anger anyone. I couldn't care less how anyone reacts to an avatar pic. I guess by your screwball logic then, every one of you idiots who's ever put a pic of Obama with an ugly insult in the caption must be trying to anger someone.

I put a drawing of Trayvon Martin in my avatar because I WANTED to and because I wanted to express my respect and support, and I have every right to do so. You and what idiots like you think are not even on the radar, you morally bankrupt hypocrite.

I don't like a great many things I see in peoples' avatars and the sign-in names that your friends use, but I know it's part of being free in this country and exercising that Constitutional right.

Now kindly GFY and stop trying to control me or what I post or what's in my avatar. You can't. You're not able, and you're powerless, you control freak and coward.

Governments lose trust as corruption soars
http://money.cnn.com/2013/07/09/news/corrupti...
Have you recently paid a bribe to a local politician, judge or police officer?

If so, you're not alone. More than one in four people around the world have paid a bribe in the past year, according to a global survey conducted by Transparency International.

Released Tuesday, the survey finds that corruption is a growing problem, with a majority of respondents saying that the situation has deteriorated in their country over the past two years.

Somewhere between 5% and 9.9% of respondents in the United States and United Kingdom said they had paid a bribe.

Connecticut cannibal found not guilty on the basis of insanity
http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/10/connecticut...
Kapoor testified that the voices told Smith to eat Gonzalez’s brain to gain a better understanding of human behavior and his eyes to see into the “spirit realm.”

Smith’s cousin, Nicole Rabb, also testified that she saw Smith with blood on his pants and a hatchet. Smith then told her that he killed a man with a hatchet, ate some of his body parts in a local cemetery and washed them down with sake.

On August 9, the judges will determine whether Smith is safe to send back into the community or needs to go to a mental hospital.

I wouldn't expect anything but a childish comment from you.

It's HOW the verdict was arrived at that's just as important. I doubt you'd understand though. It's complex and involves a great many things like the law, interpreting the law, what was excluded from jury instructions, "culpable negligence," "justifiable homicide."

Naturally, you frightwingers love the verdict. You were represented by a jury of YOUR peers, and you don't even know all the facts of how that jury was selected.

It was a great "victory" for you white racists and bigots.

Powerful people are more likely to be hypocrites
http://qz.com/102475/powerful-people-are-more...
This means that people with power not only take what they want because they can do so unpunished, but also because they intuitively feel they are entitled to do so. Conversely, people who lack power not only fail to get what they need because they are disallowed to take it, but also because they intuitively feel they are not entitled to it.
