“"This isn't about you." Dear DIANE - from everyone else whom "this isn't about," you may also eat all of our collective (insert body part here). You're a self entitled tw^t (^=a), and I'm positive your family silently agrees.”
“There's a lot about this story that is NOPE to me.
Too much of a coincidence to see your own spouse stabbed whilst Skyping/Factime. In the history of the world, that has happened never.
A solid alibi for hubby, however.
And, what assailant would deliberately catch himself on camera? None. Not even a half brain-dead one.
And unpaid auto repair expenses? Let's see the outstanding invoices.
Finally, the husband/husband''s family has started a fund-raising effort......with a donation link provided. Are you %*$&@# kidding me? For one, he is military. She will get the best possible care, for free....
Sorry, I'm analytical. Let's hope I'm way wrong.”

“I agree . Also let's not be so quick sending money off to people who don't necessarily need it now.There are scammers. Someone started a fund immediately, little bit of a knee jerk response I think. They are not homeless and starving. They have medical care.”
“It's desperation. And, I wouldn't give them credit. They truly believed the Country buys into their mindhive BS. If they'd just think for themselves for once, maybe read a book or a website other than FX News, they could have easily determined Obamacare is what people want.”
“That they couldn't have predicted how unpopular their anti-Obamacare position is with the great majority of the country is laughable. Maybe these egotistical tools will finally remove their heads from each others' a^^es and stop believing they can bully an entire nation.”

“I mean on a grand scale. I don't see squat in the news. I don't hear Pharm or the AMA saying a peep. I don't see any meaningful contribution by the healthcare profiteers, encouraging this step even into the 20th century. And, it's damn well disturbing.”
“What I find disturbing? How oddly quiet the healthcare community is in this battle. Namely those who profit from sick people: doctors, practitioners, and big Pharma. Doesn't it bother you these supposed selfless promoters of health are so quiet on the notion that all have health insurance? We are the only first world country where patients don't have guaranteed health care at a reasonable price.”

“HuffPo - this is a front page news story. Stop burying this story in the tech section. This greatly impacts Every Single American, and many of the world's population. Grow some journalistic integrity put it on the front page. Or become relegated to the dust bin of "unbiased news sources." There are others who can and will easily replace you.”
“49% of black men are murder victims. 93% of those are killed by other black men. If I saw the same amount of furor over this stat as was over Trayvon, I could pretend to care. But, alas. This whole Trayvon this is just a distraction for the Snow-Den fiasco. Don't hear a peep about that on the blogosphere anymore, do we?”

“OJ Simpson case. Enough said.
As for your scenario - what if GZ had been black? (TM still black). Your thoughts?”
AsISaid on Jul 13, 2013 at 23:20:23
“OJ Simpson and this case are apples and oranges. If both of these individuals were black, my thoughts on the perpetrator's (Zimmerman) guilt would be the same. He should have stayed in his car as he was instructed by the police. Had he done so, none of this would have happened. But, argue all you want. You KNOW what I originally said is absolutely true.”
Jul 13, 2013 at 22:55:20
“Open ended question: what if GZ had been black? (And Trayvon - also black).
veloci1 on Jul 14, 2013 at 01:20:14
“I've answered this five times already. The verdict would be the same, even if TM was white. Why? Because the evidence doesn't change with a change of race.
Any other answer shows one to be a racist.”

“Well, the one denying the other freedom to pass, say from the store to home, would be in the wrong. Also, the one carrying a deadly weapon would be responsible for whatever happened with it, he would be well advised to avoid a confrontation at any cost.”

“1. Desperately sad for Trayvon's entire family.
2. This is Not a racial issue - had it been a black man following a black or hispanic child, for ex., Not Guilty is so sad - that sweet child died because that law SUCKS.
3. Voters in FL: Use Trayvon's memory to consider reversing "Stand Your Ground"?
4. The jury simply upheld the law as it stands. Gut wrenching decision.”

“Had it been a black kid stalking a white man and the same results, the verdict would have exactly the opposite. Guilty without question.
A sad commentary.”

“"to consider reversing "Stand Your Ground"?"
Stand Your Ground played no role in this trial, this was simple, run of the mill vanilla self defense.”

“"Stand your Ground" was not part of the defense. This was strictly self-defense.”
“Ugh, completely darting off in a new direction, now are we? The original accusation was regarding his attempt to make money. I debunked that. Did you forget? Now he is derided for his nefarious alleged desire to be a martyr? Get a clue, please. Are you too obtuse to understand: he is a whistleblower. Do Not respond with, "OHHHH, well, his is just pretending to be one." Or, "well he is wrong for being a whistleblower because he's still a traitor...,etc." because you, at that point, are too stupid to breathe the same air as the rest of humanity.”
“The USSR was huge - and it was a shell of a nation, ravaged by its own government. You don't seem to understand, if no nation trusts you, you have nothing. The EU will develop its own internet infrastructure and will choose to deal with each other and China, and emerging nations like Africa (thanks to China's investment in its economy). The US has an insulated, arrogant government, reflective of its populous. We will be the pariah of the world. As we should. ”
“NY.Tiim,es or other outlets seem to be deliberately omitting the following:
1. The rest of the first world is irate at the US. Germany, Switzerland, Brussels, the UN itself, Ireland, Italy, Norway, and Finland have all issued formal statements that NSA surveillance of their citizens is totally verboten and a disgrace.
2. They imply they will create their own version of go=ogle and micr=osft, located on EU soil, so as to never again be beholden to the NSA's Stasi-esque (WWII East Germany) spy program on their own citizens.
3. They flew Eric Holder over to Europe to demand an explanation, and when he left, they were more irate than when he arrived.
America: you are about to be taught a very hard lesson that, until now, you have been too childishly obnoxious to understand: you do Not live in a bubble. This is the end of American Exceptionalism.”
Blup on Jun 24, 2013 at 23:23:02
“You make this statement as though this is directed at all Americans. Many Americans would be inclined to agree with Germany, Switzerland, Brussels, the UN, Ireland, Italy, Norway, and Finland. The US government's actions do not speak for many Americans.”
