“I'm certainly not "happy" but you conservs should be elated... Granting complete freedom to corporations (unfettered capitalism) is after all the conservative agenda.

So looks like you guys got yourselves the Manchurian candidate of your dreams (well, your 'corporate over lords' dreams anyway).. this isn't what we libs voted for.”

How bizarrely desperate (or just weird) do people have to be to subject themselves to this insanity?!!!”

“I LOOOOVE THIS POPE... and I'm not even Christian!!!

This man speaks truth and for that I am beginning to worry for his safety.

Both challenging the corporate ruling class (the real leaders of the so called "free world") while confounding the minds of the ignorant masses, he is making few friends between that rock and a hard place.

The Church has historically been used as a "tool" of the moneyed interests to keep the mindless masses in line... What happens when the Pope himself 'crosses it'?!!

Well, for starters you get the poster people (of the hard right) saying things like "he's soundin kinda liberal there" (ie; 'not one of us')... but what worries me even more is what they're saying in private board rooms.

I hope my concerns will prove to be unfounded, but let's 'pray' that his security is top notch!”

“Ummm...

1) The police don't always reveal all the "details" to the public... nor are they required to.

2) Just because something may be "true" (as in the police finding her articles for example) doesn't mean it's in every article you read.

3) If the police indicted him for murder... obviously they HAVE something to go on. Prosecutors are very careful not to indict without evidence.

You should not interpret a lack of details in a single article to represent a lack of evidence behind the scenes.”

“Said before and will say again... I really DON'T like people in a general (as a species) and THIS is one the many reasons why.

Far too many of our kind are either foolish, cruel, selfish, greedy (or any combination thereof). Luckily, in this case looks like "foolish" and no permanent harm was done but add in a layer of "cruelty" and this could've gone very badly for little Baby.

Nothing upsets me more than cruelty to animals and children... the MOST innocent among us. It's time we start treating cases of animal abuse like the SERIOUS crime it is!!! For my money, I would like to see repeat offenders get LIFE... people who abuse (whether animals or people... and often start with animals, moving on to people) cannot be rehabilitated and should NOT be allowed to walk among us... PERIOD.”

“I totally agree! The correlation between animal abuse and eventual abuse of children, women and even serial killing has been established! It's time to treat these CRIMINALS like what they are...MONSTERS!”

“Agree there too. I'd only add that we also need campaign finance reform (to keep lobbying money out of our governing system) and give our reps back to the people who elected them.

So question... are we on different sides (political affiliation)? I'm a moderate dem (liberal on most -not all- social issues). Would be nice to know when we can find common ground with the opposition :)”

Sunandwaves on Nov 22, 2013 at 02:32:42

“I'd have to say right leaning Independent but that doesn't mean we don't have common ground. :0) I don't care who brings the good idea as long as it is sound and makes sense in the short and long term. I agree with the campaign finance reform. The idea of a candidate spending a billion dollars on a campaign is so morally and ethically disgusting it's beyond words. In a Utopian world each candidate would get the exact same money to be spent in the exact same ways eliminating all the variables. After all, becoming President of the US shouldn't rely on marketing tactics. It should hopefully be the person most qualified for the job. At this point nobody can be elected without owing big favors which only plays into the corrupt system.

In regards to the political parties....I'm beginning to feel like they are similar to a marketed, fictitious feud between two well known musical artists in order to fan the flame of ticket and CD sales. While the fans are fighting over which is the better artist spending their money in support.......the two artists are sitting back getting rich off of it.
The deeper you look the more you begin to realize that although differing Party representatives have varying perspectives on issues, they all have a common denominator of greed. After all, I have never met a broke Congressman on EITHER side.”

“You'll get no argument from me on Weiner.  He clearly has issues and is not fit to hold office IMO.  And you may have noticed that dems/liberals called for his resignation. I would hold this guy to the same standard. As far as I'm concerned "addicts" have no place in our governing system and should be grounds for removal across the board. For one thing, they're vulnerable to blackmail and in the case of drugs add impaired judgement.  ”

Sunandwaves on Nov 21, 2013 at 15:36:07

“I agree with you. Of course most of the time the party that is tied to the screwup isn't worried about the governing system being damaged as much as limiting the fallout that could affect their chances for re-election. .At some point the American public will have to take to the streets in mass and demand term limits and an end to this privileged mentality that elected officials seem to have.”

“True. But I believe they "heard" enough (much of it from Zimmerman's
OWN mouth on the 911 tapes) for common sense to have prevailed in recognizing negligence (the same kind of negligence when you drink and drive).

Again, there is more than enough evidence to point to a very clear example of reckless behavior that ultimately led to the death of another human being... people get convictions for far less. And to bolster my argument about the character of this person (who was set free) GZ was arrested recently for guess what? Pointing a GUN at his girlfriend (this came out later) and probably the very SAME gun that he had already used to KILL someone. That's beyond SICK (and blood chilling)... this guy really should have been put behind bars!!!”

Storm2nte on Nov 20, 2013 at 10:13:56

“Actually, he didn't chase Mr. Martin with a gun. He followed TM but returned to his vehicle. This is where the deadly confrontation occurred. Probably why the jury (your insult to the women on there was very immature, as they could only work with what they were given) came to the not guilty verdict. Do I think GZ was lucky to have skated on this? Yes, definitely. I think both erred in this situation. When men play "tough guy", someone is going to get hurt/killed.

As far as the gun. Would most of us be comfortable with the weapon that killed another person? Probably not. I know I wouldn't but I doubt most men would throw a weapon away either. If you are referring to the most recent event of police being called, it was not the same weapon. This time it was a shotgun.

GZ for sure is a menace to society and he truly needs to go hide somewhere and leave people alone. Especially women.”

“And 'chasing a kid with a loaded weapon' was also "proven" in this case. 

Where there is alcohol there is impaired judgement and the possibility of people getting hurt and/or killed.  The SAME holds true of "chasing strangers with guns" and the same principle of "reckless endangerment" SHOULD BE applied by law. 

If the women on the jury had 2 brains cells (to rub together between them) he would be in jail for manslaughter. ”

“But we do "know beyond a reasonable doubt" that he did indeed 'chase AND confront a stranger WITH a loaded gun on his person'... that in itself can be deemed negligent and to have CAUSED a dangerous situation (not unlike getting behind the wheel of a car with alcohol in your system).  In both cases, you are behaving with indifference, only in this case, add to that MALICIOUS indiference.  

Do you honestly believe that GZ would have had the temerity (or the courage) to approach this kid ("chase" really) had he not had the "confidence" of that gun he was carrying?

The bottom line is.... when you CHASE someone with a gun there is a GOOD likelihood someone will get hurt or KILLED.  I would say that qualifies for "negligent manslaughter" every bit as much as driving under the influence. ”

“He's "violent" now... has a history of being "violent" (including a rap sheet for assaulting an officer)... and was VIOLENT the night he "murdered" Trayvon.

Our justice system is seriously FLAWED when guys like this get to WALK away from such a horrific crime.

Ironically, if he had been behind the wheel of a car that night (had a couple of beers) and ACCIDENTALLY hit Trayvon (instead of following him with malicious intent) he would be IN JAIL serving a manslaughter sentence!! Go figure?!!!”

Storm2nte on Nov 18, 2013 at 16:53:20

“Alcohol can be proven. When one drinks and drives, then there are no more "accidents", it then is intentional, as that person wasn't forced to drink and drive.”

“So you would rather we have a system where people get convicted without proof beyond reasonable doubt? Sounds much better.”
