Get a life

July 23, 2013

Oh my God, to these people protesting the trial of Zimmerman, get a life. Do something useful, help on Meals on Wheels for the seniors; visit someone in a personal care home or nursing home....

"It's not difficult to look like a genius...when you're surrounded by idiots."

Awwwww Shammy.....you shouldn't talk that way about your fellow liberals. And who would want to look like a genius based on their liberal knowledge? How tragic!

"Sometime Texas.....you shock me with some of your comments....This trial is over, time to move on, both sides."--rick424

++

Did my comments of how the President was trying to stir up divisiveness between races, so that he would benefit, shock you?

Remember Beergate? University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. claimed that he was racially profiled when he was arrested and the President initially sided with him. "President Barack Obama commented on the incident, criticizing the arrest and the response by the police.......In the aftermath, Obama stated that he regretted his comments and hoped that the situation could become a "teachable moment." Everyone thought the President learned from it. Now he is showing the same tendencies with the GZ and TM situation.

Rick424, Why doesn't the President publicly express his sympathies to the hundreds of parents that have lost their sons due to shootings in the US? They have pain and grief too.

"..And, if there IS no "other" news, we can always rely on FAUX Noise to make-some-up." Made-up-news would be hard to originate since the Axis of Ignorance has already used all that material.

"...Unless you're already plugged-into Pat Robertson's fund-raising efforts (for his diamond-mining venture), right??

See:

Pat Robertson, Freedom Gold and Blood Diamonds"

And we learn more about what Sham spends his time listening to/watching. Pretty pathetic isn't it? It's no wonder his brain is numb.

"You mean BESIDES defending the majority of them...when the T-Bagger types want to blame them for EVERYTHING?

I guess I'd have to echo Nancy Reagan (when she was "prompting" ReRon, during a Q&A); "We're doing what we can."

Is this what Jon Stewart is telling you?

"When there are (already) so many FAUX Noise fans "concerned" about Chicago???"

You mean as opposed to the Axis of Ignorance fans who could care less about Chicago or how many are murdered there day in and day out?

The age matters if you live in the city. The age matters when considering Crime Watch. I think we are far less prepared to be suspect of 14 year yr. old on a bike.

Garben, no matter what race you are, in your teen years you can start making choices on what kind of person you want to be. No matter what your upbringing, you have choices.The only oppression comes from yourself. If you are willing to put in the time and effort you can accomplish anything.Every citizen has the same opportunities. You can't blame anyone if you don't make good choices.Sure , it might be easier for the wealthy, but it's not impossible for the poor.

Racism is something that isn't well dissolved a very sketchy topic considering their own people were selling them off as ironic as it is its the truth and as we can all blame race for the reasoning behind a crime haven't we noticed a trend here in Williamsport ? One doesn't even need to see a picture of the suspect all one needs to hear is the name read aloud and we instantly know the race isn't this sad

SG changed the article, showing his age as 21. At the end of the article they state they erred in saying he was 14. Nevertheless, a senseless murder.

LoL no Shaman, I'm not gonna start crying. But there are many occasions I would love to be able to reach through my screen and Gibbs slap ya LoL Like many of us, I know you enjoy this harmless banter back and forth. We may not agree, but I think most of us really care about the direction of this country.

RWH, first of all good for you! I think adoption is a great thing!

Secondly part of my family is black. I am not real sure people get whiter than me lol.

If someone said that to me or my family, I'm not above admitting that I would lose my cool and do something I'd eventually regret. I try to be polite to everyone I come across, few things truly set me off, but that kind of disrespect....would be met with much worse hostility.

They protest because we support them so they don't have to work....so tired of the same old same old....you don't see many white people protesting because we have to work for a living, same reason why white people are not having as many children as the blacks and hispanics...we have to work and pay for our children's needs, they live off of the white working class...same all over this country...

"AGREED!!!!! And, who'd have guess a "mortally-wounded" Jarhead still FLOATS??!!!"

"It probably WOULD help, to have a partner (near-by), to carry your carcass off-the-field, until you can manage your magical "resurrection"-routine!!"

I sit here and scratch my head trying to figure out just what the h3ll you trying to say. Twice you eluded to the notion that I am deceased. Can someone please help me make sense of this. Surely Shaman wouldn't be threatening me in anyway." - GysgtUSMC

Oh, please...you're not gonna start crying, are you? I'd assumed (even) a Jarhead would recognize the use of quotes ("....") as sarcasm.

You need to get your butt into night-school and complete your English-education.

The bottom line is the facts of this case did not support the agenda of many and that's how this all got so convoluted. Personally, I studied the case from the beginning, watched the entire trial, and read a very inclusive Wikipedia article that was non biased and reports many facts that the media conveniently left out. From that I drew my own conclusion and race NEVER entered into the equation. Travon and his family are merely pawns for many to push their political cause.

Face the facts. Once, again, this Country's racist/bigots figure they got-away with "another one". They WERE hoping for something akin to rioting...so they could try-out their most-current weaponry, but...as is evident...it'll take some fairly-significant time for them to get-over THAT disappointment. - Shaman

Am I understanding this correctly? You think Repubs. are HOPING blacks will Riot so they can be beaten, shot, whatever? IF that's what you are thinking that is sick." - Tgrammiex4
