The police chief of the town where teenager Trayvon Martin was shot and killed has ordered neighborhood watch volunteers to report to duty in their neighborhoods unarmed or not to report at all. According to News Channel 13, Sanford, Florida’s new police chief Cecil Smith is making major changes to the city’s neighborhood watch program.

In addition to the no weapons rule, Smith said, volunteers will be asked not to pursue individuals they believe may have committed a crime. Martin’s death at the hands of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in February of 2012 was the result of a dysfunctional system, said the new chief.

“In this program,” Smith explained,“it is clearly stated that you will not pursue an individual. In this new program, it clearly indicates that you will not carry a firearm when performing your duties as a neighborhood watch captain or participant.”

Smith told reporters that when he took over as sheriff earlier this year, the neighborhood watch program was being run exactly as it had been more than a year ago when the unarmed 17-year-old was gunned down. He immediately suspended the program rather than risk another incident under his leadership.

“We’ve seen this happen already, where an individual was declaring that under the auspice of neighborhood watch, he was performing a duty that he wasn’t,” Smith said.

so what do you think people will remember? right wing idiots who have finally found something that's true, or that Obama got them better insurance?
It's easier to try and fool people, than it is to convince them you have NOT been fooled you idiot..

"No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

Guess the liar you idiot lackey??

No, wait. That was Alan Grayson.

Alan Grayson compared fellow Americans who disagree with big government the KKK and published an article with a burning cross with the cross being "t" in "tea party" beside it.

Earlier this week on CNN, former Vice President Dick Cheney called NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden a "traitor."

"He's done enormous damage to the United States by talking about sources and methods, and the way we collect intelligence," said Cheney. "And that's a violation of the law."

However, Cheney did not present any specific evidence that Snowden had damaged the United States.

According to Time magazine, Cheney said he hopes the U.S. is eventually able to catch Snowden who was given an one-year asylum by Russia.

Cheney did not mention that his own chief of staff Scooter Libby helped out CIA covert operative Valerie Plame to the press and was sentenced to jail, however, that sentence was commuted by President Bush.

Glenn Greenwald, who published Snowden's leaks in The Guardian, reminded Anderson Cooper last night on CNN of Cheney's reported crimes during the Bush administration, noted RawStory.com (video below).

“Remember, Dick Cheney is a politician who engaged in some of the worst, most radical and criminal conduct in the last century in the United States and did it all in secret, from lying about the war in Iraq to torturing people, to putting people in cages with no lawyers, to eavesdropping on the American people without the warrants required by law,” said Greenwald.

“So of course political people like Dick Cheney, people in political power always want to do what they do behind a wall of secrecy because that’s how they abuse power and they always consider those who bring transparency to what they do to be evil, treasonous people,” added Greenwald.

2. June 14, 2002: Suicide Car-Bomb Outside U.S. Consulate in Karachi
Via: Zahid Hussein / Reuters
Twelve people died in an attack outside the U.S. consulate in Karachi when militants exploded a car bomb. A Taliban splinter group referred to as Al-Qanoon, or "The Law," claimed responsibility for the attacks that also injured 51 people. Two hired guards, a Marine, and five Pakistani staff members were among the injured in the attack that followed then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's visit to the country.
Carol says who cares wrong date.
Did the Bush administration know that these attacks were likely the day before? Did the Bush administration remove security and deny requests for more security? Did the Bush administration do nothing to secure or remove the people from those embassies knowing an attack was likely?

The answer is no, no and no.

Benghazi was a totally different scenario.

A video was blamed. Which was a lie.

Bush would not have lied or blamed a video. He took responsibility for mistakes that happened under his watch. And held those accountable who were to blame.

Obama thinks he and his administration are Teflon.

the official neighborhood watch program will end and legally armed citizens will independently protect themselves from Trayvon hoodies....

either that, or the zombies will run wild...

The predominantly democratic Massachusetts Congress voted 196 to 2 to pass Romneycare.

It took three years to get a bipartisan and bicameral vote in Massachusetts to pass Romneycare.

Small businesses were on board in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts only had 9% of its population uninsured.

People could actually keep their health care plans if they liked them in Massachusetts.

And Massachusetts is a relatively small state.

Obamacare is simply a disaster waiting to happen.

Not surprised you think O'Reilly's audience is 1,346 when his ratings are off the charts and his show is syndicated worldwide.

You believe everything Obama says.
