THUG!
The grill? It was cool for about fifteen minutes, and every black male teen in America wanted to wear a grill. Then, they tossed them. Stupid macho thing. It's the "music thug" thing - outlaws. So what? It's like showing up at the Oscars with your nipples showing through your dress even though you come from Hollywood Royalty. What was Gwyneth Paltrow thinking? Why did I wash shirts two sizes to big for awhile and celebrate the day he finally said "too big". I wear a medium, Mom. He grew up and became a man - a good man.

Maybe we shouldn't judge (especially young people) anybody by their pink hair or cotton candy blue hair or nose rings even though the urge to do so is there. So, you don't have a tattoo. It's almost obligatory to get one or more these days. I'd still like to have a tiny multi-colored butterfly tattooed on my back somewhere. I saw one a friend from Norway had about forty years ago, and I still think it was beautiful.

You're much too judgmental, and much of it has to do with ignorance and racism. People are just about as nice as you expect them to be and treat them. Everybody has a story. We don't all look alike, but we pretty much all have commonalities of human experience.

It's amazing how people let Obama get away with wrecking our country. The guy totally sucks.

When are people going to realize Obama is a liberal maniac?

I realize most people on the left are either brainwashed or out to lunch.

All I want is for the government to leave me alone and let me pursue my version of freedom and happiness. If I get rich through my efforts and you don't or vice versa then so be it.

I just want my chance. Nobody is going to have a chance now, or it's going to be exceedingly more difficult.

I feel like I stepped in some dog poo and tracked it inside, as I usually disagree with ALL of your 'cut & paste" jobs. But I will have to go back and give positive JudgeIt's to this one. Trayvon got killed because some moron wanted to be a pretend cop. Seemed like a good kid. Very sad.
I don't think Zim is 1st degree killer, but certainly manslaughter at the least. He found out the hard way that being a cop isn't just having a gun and some lopsided, half-baked, untrained suspicions. Is he a racist? Maybe. That should come out in court. Mostly he's a moron who didn't pay attention in class.
Well, when I find your posts to be truthful, I just click the appropriate judge-it icons based on the evidence of truthfulness. I don't give much thought about dog poo. On the other hand, when the first paragraph starts by calling somebody a moron or an idiot, I probably miss any truthful point you may have made thereafter. Maybe is you saved it for the end, I'd read far enough to see if there was any logic in what you wanted to share. Just sayin'.

This Trevon Zimmerman thing belongs on another thread. What I said about the media belongs on e-v-e-r-y political thread (though no doubt someone could have worded it better).

what do you propose the people do? maybe sign and send a petition to our congressmen to impeach him? stupid people who want to be government supported are the very ones who put him in office. TOO LATE NOW, we're ruined as a nation and our kids and their kids have lost their free country.

Is that real? Anyone can build a website. How do we know it's Trayvon? Even if it is, so what? Now you get shot for just looking threatening?
People, especially young, minority males, get shot for all sorts of 'reasons'.

A person wearing the wrong color hat on the wrong street can have the worst day of their life, and if they're lucky, they just might get to have another one.

Nope, I got your button but you didn't get mine.

Start spending cuts with foreign aid

Foreign aid accounts for 1 percent of the federal budget, which if eliminated, would offset a large part of the sequester-required reduction in spending. Much of the foreign aid goes to countries with corrupt governments where officials line their pockets or to countries that are opposed to the United States, such as the billions we give to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.

But in order to make a partisan political statement, the head democrat of this administration chooses instead to cut money from programs that will hurt poor and middle class citizens instead.

Have any cuts to Obamacare been looked at?

Let's start by taking a good long look at this video chart. Seriously. Look at what it is we THINK versus the REALITY. If you can't see where we have to start after giving this serious consideration, then you refuse to see reality.

I urge all of you to at least look - then opine:

And just who in the hell are YOU to question me about anything? You have some kind of a rod up your ass.

I have only this one account and no other. I do not post grey box ever, and I have no gmail accounts. I have ONE account, the one that this Topix account is registered under.

Now take your nasty, snide accusations and shove them up their where that rod resides, you trouble making, lying b*cth.

I never have. I never accused you of having multiple accounts or posing as anyone else.

I never accused you of lying about personal information.

You are right about the Main-Stream Media, aka the LIARS(Liberal Intelligentsia And Rich Socialists) Club. An example of how operate to control political discourse is the NBC edited tape of George Zimmerman talking to a 911 dispatcher, and says,“This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

But a transcript of the actual tape reads like this: Zimmerman:“This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.” Dispatcher:“OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?” Zimmerman:“He looks black.”

The Washington Examiner has a story today that points out how our so-called president is intentionally causing as much pain as possible on the American people just for political expediency.

Unbelievable, but too much evidence points directly at that fact.

"There is no common ground. There's no desire for bipartisanship. He doesn't want to come to bipartisan agreements. In fact, Boehner once gave Obama everything he asked for in a fiscal cliff deal, and Obama changed the terms of the deal. He demanded an additional trillion dollars in tax increases from Boehner, and that's when Boehner walked away. He didn't want a deal. He doesn't want any agreement. He doesn't want his name attached to any policy going forward because the intention here is for there to be more pain."
