“any non-violent means of keeping the memory of this grave injustice alive in our memories seems like a "positive" thing to me.
I wish we had more teachers such as this gentleman, people with moral compasses that point toward justice over injustice.”

“The only injustice in this case was the phony charges that were brought against Zimmerman. It was obvious from the beginning that Zimmerman was not guilty of any crime. This "teacher's" actions are not in way moral. He has only made a fool of himself and lowered the value of year book of those students. What a disgrace to all teachers this man is.”

“What injustice? A Hispanic man was acquitted of a crime by virtue of Constitutional safeguards. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt - not any doubt - a reasonable doubt after multiple investigations by police, DA's , private investigators, the FBI and the DOJ, amid racist attacks and 16 months of media biased reporting.
This teacher should be teaching the Constitution rather than emotionalism and play acting.”

“the real injustice is everyone excusing Martin's behaviour
it is now Open Season on ALL Neighbourhood Watch Patrols in the US”

“If he as a history teacher had used this teaching method during the school year and, his student's decided to wear that attire, then yes that would have been masterful. This has no meaning, it's just a teacher with a hoodie on.”

“In my opinion, your post is one of the most appropriate on this thread. New fan.”

“It's silly. Martin was looking for trouble that night.”
“Yet another "profile in courage" from a Republican more intent on pandering to the greedy, avaricious interests of our corporate overlords than in protecting the interests of humanity.
I might be able to understand this type of thinking were these guys inherently ignorant or incapable of digesting scientific information, but simply ignoring the preponderance of scientific evidence in favor of placating people such as the Koch brothers........THAT is unforgiveable.”

“it’s much better than the democrat science of thinking that islands can flip over or that the Mars rover will go near the moon landing site.”
“It would be nice if some of these characters would approach the proliferation of guns and their easy availability to the mentally disturbed with the same zeal that they devote to pot.
It is scary what we deign to "regulate" in our society and what we allow to flourish, but if I had may choice I would rather have my kid smoking pot than collecting an arsenal of guns in his apartment and obeying the voices that tell him to use them.
As always: follow the money trial if you want to find out what is behind any law and regulation. Usually some vested interest is making bucks out of the legislation.”
“He is, without question, the most execrable Justice that I can recall in my 7 decades of observing the Court. Thank goodness that nature imposes its own elegant term limits on these jurists, because our country cannot survive a whole lot more of the "impartial justice" that he and his four miscreant fellows on the court are doling out.”

“He and Thomas are 2 of the worst ever jurists on the Court.”
“The "whole idea" WAS their idea, john. The ACA evolved from a recommendation by the conservative Heritage Foundation back in the 90's as the conservative attempt to divert attention away from a national healthcare system.
Now the GOP hypocrites condemn it.
The problem: now that their idea has been adopted they have no rational or suitable idea of their own to push.
As always: conservatives are slow to change, quick to condemn change and ever unable to innovate for the greater good.”
“Phyllis must have watched too many episodes of "Mad Men".
My wife works, makes more money than I do, in fact ( we are both Registered Nurses: her job is more difficult...) and it gives us both some sense of security that either one of us could support themselves financially without the other.
We proudly live in the 21st Century. Phyllis should try it.....there are so many neat things here in the future.”
“Whatever his motivation ( and only he knows that....) Mr. Snowden provided a great service to Americans by exposing the extent of our spying program. He should be welcomed back home with a ticker tape parade.”
“40 plus years in California now, an exile from the gray Midwest, a place mired in backward thinking and rampant prejudice.
I am so happy to live in a place that respects the individuality of everyone. If red staters had the intelligence to aspire, they would most surely aspire to a California state of mind.”

“So you think all States should be closing State Parks ,freeing felons due to prison overcrowding, highest taxes in the Nation . Unemployment over 10% for last 5 years . LA with the worst traffic jams in the world . Businesses leaving State due to high taxes and over regulation . The most liberal of all States ,the Constitution means nothing to you people . Sounds like paradise to me .”
