“It't not always just the service. A portion of the party that is miles out of touch with what americans really want is driving things. They are starving children and elderly, taking healthcare from women, keeping services from veterans and so on... The politicians are bought and paid for by the corporations. Until we get that problem solved not much is going to change. We also need to put a stop to the media willfully lying.”

“Don't know what this has to do with my disappointment in Boehner. I am one of the seniors who has had services cut so that they can give it away to people who have never worked and never will.”

“Who had assaulted a police officer and had a restraining order against them previous to this event? It was Zimmerman. Who had a gun and who had a bag of candy. If you even had two braincells to rub together you might get it right.
The person most responsible was the person with the gun who got out of his car and followed an innocent boy because he profiled him. Trayvon did NOTHING absolutely NOTHING. It was Trayvon who was defending himself against a crazy person who was NOT a cop following him home.”
“No legal justification? How about assault against a police officer, how about the restraining order against him for domestic violence. There were more arrests, those are two examples. Zimmerman is the poster child for people who should never ever have been permitted to have a gun. Period!”

“i'm not arguing those points. But in THIS particular instance and in THIS particular case he was found not guilty so I don't know if they can say "Wellllllllll we know the jury says you didn't do it but we're gonna keep it anyway."”
“Exactly, but not when you lie to start wars that kill millions of people like republicans.”

“Democrats started the war in Syria. 100,000 are dead now because of us. Hillery Clinton played her part when she aided in the collapse of the Libyan government, now arms for Syrian rebels are flooding in through Libya. You should stop blaming only republicans, because both parties are screwing us over.”

“I've seen a broken nose and it was VERY bloody. Blood everywhere.”

“Precisely! Blood everywhere and FROM the nostrils! LOL. Also, I watched the video of Zimmerman in the interrogation room describing how Trayvon "beat" him. Zimmerman would be black and blue and swollen had he been beaten about the face and neck in the manner he claimed. ”

“Not always. I saw my husbands nose get broken, and set... with hardly a drop of blood. It depends on where it is broke. I mean if all that is broken is cartilage it's broke...but it isn't broken all up like that. I suspect zimmermans nose was broken cartilage...hurts like well... still there isn't a drip drop of proof TM did it.... know what I mean... he was out there running around in the dark for heavens sake...”

“If it were fair to both sides, there would some african americans, please give me a break. And before you want to throw acusations around, I am a white woman.”

“I'm a white woman as well, and so what?
The jury was selected by both the defense AND the prosecution. They can't go out onto street corners and simply pick people to be on the jury. The original pool is randomly selected. They are then interviewed by defense and prosecution and selected from there.
The system is as it should be. Juries shouldn't be selected based on race or gender or religious beliefs or anything else. They get to weed out the ones they think will have a bias along the way.
So - given that you're a white woman, and I'm a white woman, and we BOTH seem to think along the same lines as Zimmerman most certainly should be in that courtroom for murdering that young man, what makes you think an all female white jury won't be able to come to a fair decision based on whatever evidence is going to be presented to them?”
