“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

US Constitution, Article. II., Section. 3.: (President) “; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” - Presidential Oath of Office, Article. II., Section. 1, "Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Both Charles Krauthammer and Ramesh Ponnuru have spoken about the lawlessness of the Obama administration. Examples include (but are not limited to) unilaterally delaying implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate, issuing health-care edicts that undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, making unconstitutional “recess appointments” to the National Labor Relations Board and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, refusing to enforce current immigration laws related to illegal immigrants who were brought to America as children, and waving welfare work requirements.
This is all part of a pattern in which Mr. Obama enforces laws he likes and refuses to enforce (or unilaterally alters) laws he disagrees with. I suppose the temptation to act as a potentate is understandable; but it also happens to be illegal. The president, after all, has the constitutional duty to “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed” (see Article II, Section 3 for more).
One of the reasons there isn’t a firestorm of protest against the president’s contempt for the rule of law is that that apart from a few honorable exceptions, the press doesn’t care and therefore isn’t covering this story. Let’s just say that if the same kind of violations had been committed by presidents with the last names of oh, say, Bush or Reagan, you can be sure the New York Times, the New York Review of Books, Politico, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, NPR, and the major news networks would all be covering the story.
The problem here is that a dangerous precedent is being set by the president. To understand why, consider the words of Thomas More to Roper in Robert Bolt’s A Man for All Seasons:
And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you—where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws from coast to coast—man’s laws, not God’s—and if you cut them down—and you’re just the man to do it—do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?    
Barack Obama is doing his part to cut down from coast to coast the laws he doesn’t much care for. He does so because he’s a progressive who believes the ends (advancing a liberal agenda) justifies the means (lawlessness). But unfortunately in the future the winds will come–and when they do, and when Americans cannot stand upright in them, it may dawn on some folks that our contempt for the rule of law was nurtured and flowered during the Obama era.

Barack Obama making sure that laws are observed, for Snowden that is, not for himself:


  1. What a treat it would be to see Obama get justice.

    1. Obama got justice in the Zimmerman/Obama trial. He lost.

      What a wonderful jury.

    2. Obama lost his first full blown 100 percent political/racial show trial which he instigated. The police guy would charge, so he got canned. The first prosecutor wouldn't prosecute, so the Gov appointed a 'special one'. The grand jury proceeding was by-passed. The judge was prejudice.

      And still Obama lost.

      The USA is still alive and kicking, thanks to those Ladies of the Jury.

    3. Yep, southern racism is still alive. The lynch mob persists.

    4. You're crazy. Racism is all you have in your stupid head. It was the President who injected racism into it, he and the 'preachers'.

    5. No, I'm a realist. If that boy had jacked a round into the chamber of his gun, and gone out in pursuit of Zimmerman, and ended up killing him, he'd be doing twenty to life, right now. If you don't know that, you don't know the South.

    6. hispanic kills black

      It's still the white man's fault.

  2. Congress makes the laws. The President signs them into law and everyone has the obligation to follow them. There is no Obama Exclusion Clause.

  3. The world pumped about 45 Million bbls of oil, less, the first 3 months of 2013 than in the first 3 months of 2012 - a trend that's likely to continue through, at least, June.

    THAT'S our problem; not Obama.

    2. As a result, gasoline prices have turned around, and seem to be headed back to the $3.80 range. That's an "economy-killer."

      Heading Up

  4. Obama is by far the most lawless President in US history.

    1. That's silly; you'd have to know absolutely NO U.S. history to say that. Look up Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe for some real examples - and, yes, even Abraham Lincoln. Obama's a "stickler" for detail compared to those.

    2. Obama has violated the rights of every last American with his unconstitutional snooping.

      The others you mention are pikers by comparison.

    3. That's stupid. Obama has not violated the law; but, Bush did. Dubya did the same snooping WITHOUT cover of law.

      He, and his gang, also falsified evidence, and ginned up a war in Iraq that cost us a couple of Trillion Dollars, and 4,500 Dead, along with 20,000 severely wounded.

    4. And, you want to talk about "violating rights?"

      How's this:

      "The Supreme Court has ruled, now let them Enforce it." - Andrew Jackson

    5. Whereupon, he promptly took all the Cherokees' property, and put them on the Trail of Tears.

    6. Read about Dwight D. Eisenhower's endeavors in Central America, or Teddy Roosevelt's shenanigans with the Panama Canal.

    7. Nixon hired goons to break into the Democratic National Campaign Headquarters, and FDR tried to pack the Supreme Court.

      Johnson expanded Vietnam into a full-fledged war with the trumped up "Tonkin Bay" incident.

    8. The ink wasn't dry on the constitution when George Washington got on his white horsie, and led the army against the Pennsylvania farmers in protection of the Eastern Refiners (of which, he was one) Whiskey Monopoly.

    9. .

      The same old bullshit.

      How can it be wrong if everyone is doing it?


    10. I'm just responding to the hysterical "Most Lawless President" hyperbole.

  5. Every last American has been unconstitutionally snooped on by Obama, each and every one. 100 percent. Hard to go above 100 percent.

    1. Not true. Obama has The Supreme Court on his side. They ruled in favor of the law.

    2. The law that was overwhelmingly supported by the Republicans in Congress.

    3. .

      Not true. Obama has The Supreme Court on his side. They ruled in favor of the law.

      I would like to see a link.

      The metadata snooping is supposedly (according to Clapper, Alexander, et al) based on Section 215 of the Patriot Act. I've read Section 215 and I (as well as a number of Senators) deny that it authorizes the current metadata vacuuming. The government says that the FISA Court allows it; however, the FISA Court's justification for ruling that the plain English of Section 215 actually doesn't mean what it says is of course 'secret' and we are not allowed to see it. While new lawsuits have been filed based on the new data released by Snowden and admitted to by Alexander previous lawsuit were thrown out due to lack of standing. As far as I know, the issue has never reached the Supreme Court.

      If you have different info, I would be interested in it.

      As for the people who overwhelmingly supported the law, James Sensenbrenner, the guy called the father of the bill, says current government programs go way beyond what was envisioned in the original bill. Those opposing the current government programs include both Dems and GOP.

      It's, IMO, a sad state of affairs when the members of Congress are unable to talk about interpretations of the laws they passed because it is deemed 'secret' by a separate branch of government.

      Total bull.

  8. Obama Big Loser in Zimmerman Trial

    Roger Simon

    July 13th, 2013 - 9:48 pm

    Forget the over-zealous prosecutors and the repellent state attorney Angela Corey (who should be immediately disbarred or, my wife said sarcastically, elevated to director of Homeland Security) and even the unfortunate Trayvon Martin family (although it is certainly hard to forget them — they have our profound sympathies), the true loser at the Zimmerman trial was Barack Obama.

    By injecting himself in a minor Florida criminal case by implying Martin could be his son, the president of the United States — a onetime law lecturer, of all things — disgraced himself and his office, made a mockery of our legal system and exacerbated racial tensions in our country, making them worse than they have been in years. This is the work of a reactionary, someone who consciously/unconsciously wants to push our nation back to the 1950s.

    It is also the work of a narcissist who thinks of himself first, of his image, not of black, white or any other kind of people. It’s no accident that race relations in our country have gone backwards during his stewardship.

    Congratulations to the jury for not acceding to this tremendous pressure and delivering the only conceivable honest verdict. This case should never have been brought to trial. It was, quite literally, the first American Stalinist “show trial.” There was, virtually, no evidence to convict George Zimmerman. It was a great day for justice that this travesty was finally brought to a halt.

    We all know Al Sharpton, the execrable race baiter of Tawana Brawley and Crown Heights, agitated publicly for this trial more than anyone else. But he most likely would not have succeeded had it not been for Obama’s tacit support. As far as I know this is unprecedented in our history (a president involving himself in a trial).

    1. The media also followed Obama (as they always do) by enabling the demagogue Sharpton, as if he were a serious person. The media, as I wrote before, treated this case like pornography, something to be exploited, giving it all sorts of racial import it didn’t have. The New York Times, acting like true reactionaries of the Obama era (how can we use the word “liberal” with these people?), even went so far as to invent the term “white Hispanic” to fit the case. The National Enquirer couldn’t have done it better. (I take it back. The Enquirer behaves more ethically.)

      The irony is that the people who suffer most from the media behaving in this manner are black people who are manipulated into acting as an interest group when they have no interest. They are literally victims of the media and of Obama.

      Of course, they aren’t the only ones. Almost everyone is a victim in in this case that should never have been tried. George Zimmerman will never live a normal life. The American public has been polarized with emotions stirred up for absolutely no reason. Racism is essentially manufactured, as if it were a commodity.

      A further irony is that recent polls have shown racism in our culture at all-time lows. You don’t hear that from the media or from our administration, however. This knowledge is not to their advantage.

      As I type this article, I am listening to Geraldo, on the post-verdict show, nattering on about the possibility of the Justice Department initiating a civil rights prosecution of Zimmerman. If that happens, the Obama administration will have outdone itself in the creation of racism. The shame continues.

    2. But thank god justice was done in the OJ case since that jury was packed!

  9. Horseshit. There is One victim in this case. A Dead 17 year old boy.

    And, one lucky son of a bitch. A guy that saw a black kid, chambered a round in his weapon, instigated a fight, killed the unarmed minor, and got let off by a poorly-informed southern jury.

    1. 17 year old "boy"


      5 foot 11, 158 pounds, perfect fighting weight for a man

    2. Only victim?

      The US public that had to have this race politics shoved down our throats.

    3. For some people getting past race to real evidence or lack thereof is just a bridge too far.

      Without Obama sticking his stupid face in it, it would never have gone to trial.

      Obama put the race issue in this trial.

      Zimmerman had tutored black kids. The RBI report said he was not racist.

      One of the jurors is married to a lawyer, another has a son who is a lawyer. One was recently moved from Kansas I think it was. I am not certain about the others, but they were obviously well informed because they got it right. I was glad when I first read about the legal background of two of the ladies on the jury.

    4. With commander in chief, Blackie, leading the charge.

    5. You're a racist piece of shit, Bob.

    6. Wasn't me Rufie. I have no idea who that anon is.

      I couldn't help but express myself on this Zimmerman Trial though, it was so absurd.

      And you call me a racist when you want to hang an Hispanic on no evidence at all?


    7. Can you possibly believe that a hulking 17 year old with his history could be innocent? Then there is Barky playing the race card trying to tilt the scales of justice. The isn't what America is supposed to be. Thank God Zimmerman was there to see justice carried out!

    8. .

      The 'other' anonymous?

      Merely a mewling quib.


    9. .

      ...and got let off by a poorly-informed southern jury.

      I give you the benefit of the doubt in assuming you are just blowing off steam.

      . You have said you haven't been following the trial closely.

      . By all accounts the jury was taking copious notes.

      . They supposedly played close attention all through the trial.

      . They didn't rush to judgment, they took a couple days to reach a verdict.

      . True they are Florida residents and as such 'southern' but they could be from anywhere in the US. Possibly, a little profiling unless you know they were born or at least raised in the south.

      . You have said yourself that the prosecution overcharged Zimmerman.

      What would make you say the jury was poorly-informed?


  10. .

    It is also the work of a narcissist who thinks of himself first, of his image, not of black, white or any other kind of people.

    True enough.

    The rest, merely the mewlings of some nattering nabob.


    1. NY Giants Star: 'Zimmerman Doesn't Last a Year Before the Hood Catches Up to Him'...

      You may still get your wish, Rufus.

    Legal experts conclude that prosecution in Zimmerman trial never proved its case
    Rick Moran

    The prosecution is coming under withering criticism from some legal experts for their handling of the Zimmerman case, with some believing that the second degree murder charge was unwarranted.

    Miami Herald:
    After five weeks of trial and 56 witnesses, few legal observers believed prosecutors came close to proving Sanford neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman committed second-degree murder when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in February 2012.
    So for many legal analysts, it was no surprise that jurors rejected even a lesser "compromise" verdict of manslaughter, acquitting Zimmerman outright of all criminal charges and deciding he acted in a reasonable way to protect his own life.

    The acquittal was a stinging blow for prosecutors and their decision to file the second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman, who was not initially arrested by Sanford police after claiming self-defense. And it was a resounding embrace of the defense's strategy during closing arguments not just to establish that prosecutors hadn't proven Zimmerman guilty, but also to show he was "absolutely" innocent.
    "Justifiable use of force is one of the most difficult areas of the law," State Attorney Angela Corey acknowledged Saturday after Zimmerman's acquittal. "Make no mistake, Trayvon Martin had every right to be on the premises as did George Zimmerman ... that's what makes this case unique."

    Zimmerman defense attorney Don West Zimmerman defense attorney called the prosecution's case a "disgrace."

    "We proved that George Zimmerman was not guilty," he said.

    Jude M. Faccidomo, the former president of Miami's Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers said the jury clearly believed in the right to self-defense: "Especially when cases are so gray, like this one was, self-defense really resonates because people can associate with being afraid."
    And while some also have questioned the state attorney's office acceptance of a mostly white jury, a more diverse panel would have returned the same verdict, lawyers who have watched the case believe.

    "After seeing the quality of the evidence presented by the state, the diversity of the jury really didn't matter in the end," said Larry Handfield, a prominent African American Miami criminal defense lawyer. "But it would have helped the community in giving more credibility to the decision to acquit Zimmerman."
    This is a fascinating article in that it rehashes the trial, step by step, witness by witness, showing how incredibly weak the prosecution's case was. It just wasn't credible and the jurors weren't buying it.

    One telling remark is the notion that even a "diverse" jury would have found Zimmerman innocent. Could a jury with several African Americans on it given Zimmerman a fair shake? I don't know if it's universally true, but I've talked to a couple of lawyers who tell me that a remarkable transformation occurs when people are faced with deciding the fate of a fellow citizen as they sit on a jury. They take their responsibilies very seriously and try to do the right thing without regard to race or class. I'd like to think that Zimmerman would have been found innocent regardless of who was sitting on the jury.

    The argument that this case should never have gone to trial is well served by this article

    1. I can't get the article by the legal experts to come up, but you can go to American Thinker and try yourselves.

  12. Let these assholes attack Iran and accept the consequences:

    Washington: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Iran was getting closer to the “red line" he set for its nuclear program and warned the international community not to be distracted by the crises in Syria and Egypt.

    Tehran was continuing enrichment activities and building inter-continental ballistic missiles, which could give it a military nuclear capability, he said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

    At the United Nations in September, Netanyahu drew a red line across a cartoon bomb to illustrate the point at which Iran will have amassed enough uranium to fuel one nuclear bomb. He said Iran could reach that threshold by mid-2013.

    "They haven't yet reached it but they're getting closer to it and they have to be stopped," Netanyahu told CBS. He said the West's sanctions against Tehran needed to be intensified and backed up with the threat of a credible military option.

    Netanyahu also said Iran was building faster centrifuges that could allow it to speed up its enrichment activities.

    Israel, widely believed to be the Middle East’s only nuclear-armed power, has issued veiled warnings for years that it might attack Iran if international sanctions and diplomacy fail to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.

    Notice Blunderbuss Netanyahu said on Sunday that Iran was getting closer to the “red line” he set for its nuclear program and warned the international community not to be distracted by the crises in Syria and Egypt.

    He set the red line but wants the “international community” (Read US) not to be distracted “ by the crises in Syria and Egypt.” because he know that his fat ass can’t do it by himself and get away with it unscathed. Iran will not roll over like the US did with the Israeli attack on the US Liberty.

    1. Not to worry, Iran will succeed in it's rightful place among the Nuclear Armed Nations.

      Israel is just small potatoes.

      1st the Sunni, then Europe and then of course the Great Satan the USA.

      Of course this is IF America is still around 5 years from now.

      Better embrace the fact you are a fallen people and nation. Allah calls you, are you listening?

    2. Not listening. No one here is such an idiot as you.

    3. Go stone some women or something. Fight among yourselves. You have been doing both for 1,400 years.

    4. But Iran is rising with the HELP of America, meaningless sanctions. Window dressing.

      Your Obama has been a gift from Allah

    Distracted to such a degree the Israeli mount military actions to get a moments relief, that is before the next "Distraction" in Syria garners the Israeli's attention.

    You're kidding, right?


  16. Defense attorney Don West, meanwhile, voiced his displeasure with the course of the proceedings.

    "I think the prosecution of George Zimmerman was disgraceful," said Mr. West, who repeatedly complained before and during the trial about alleged delays by the state in handing over evidence. "As happy as I am for George Zimmerman, I'm thrilled that this jury kept this tragedy from becoming a travesty."


    Assistant state attorney Bernie de la Rionda, the lead prosecutor in the case, was visibly tense as he commented on the outcome. "Who was following who?

  17. I wonder if 'Rufus' has considered WHY Zimmerman got out of his car. He got out of his car to get the address of the unit he was parked in front of for the responding PD, which is when TM jumped him.

    1. .

      Don't be silly.

      He was following TM between houses until he 'lost him' and decided to return to his car. Don't you remember?


    2. FBI records: agents found no evidence that Zimmerman was racist

      Frances Robles and Scott Hiaason | Miami Herald
      After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

      Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.

      Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

      The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.

      The evidence includes bank surveillance videos from the day of the killing, crime scene photos and memos from prosecutors.

      Among the documents is a note from the prosecutor who said one of the witnesses said her son, a minor, had felt pressured by investigators to say the injured man he saw was wearing a red top. The boy’s testimony had been considered key, because it backed up Zimmerman’s allegation that he — wearing red — was being pummeled.

      Federal agents interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s civil rights had been violated.

      Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias.

      Two co-workers told agents they spoke with Zimmerman the day after the shooting, and both said they noticed injuries to Zimmerman’s nose and the back of his head. One person said Zimmerman was “absolutely devastated.”

      Zimmerman told both colleagues that he followed Martin — whom Zimmerman described as a “suspicious person” — so he could tell police where the teen went, but was then “jumped” by Martin. Zimmerman told both that Martin reached for Zimmerman’s gun before Zimmerman shot Martin.

      Read more here:


  18. The Justice Department says it is looking into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.

    The department opened an investigation into Martin's death last year but stepped aside to allow the state prosecution to proceed.

  19. We heard all the bullshit about Zimmerman and the “child” Martin. The take away from the media is that white on black crime is a national problem in the US. Here are some inconvenient statistics:

    [link to]

    in "The Color of Crime: Race, Crime and Justice in America," produced by the "right-leaning" New Century Foundation in 2005, using the same FBI and Justice surveys, startling facts emerge:

    "Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against other blacks." Forty-five percent of the victims of violent crime by blacks are white folks, 43 percent are black, 10 percent are Hispanic.

    Blacks are seven times as likely as people of other races to commit murder, eight times more likely to commit robbery and three times more likely to use a gun in a crime.

    "Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit violent crime against a white person than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery." (If decent black folks have trouble hailing a cab, and they do, these numbers may help explain it.)

    Black-on-white rape is 115 times more common than the reverse.

    More than 1,600 Whites are murdered by Blacks each year. Blacks murder Whites at 18 times the rate Whites murder Blacks.

    About 1 million Whites were murdered, robbed, assaulted, or raped by Blacks in 1992. In the last 30 years, 170 million violent and nonviolent crimes were committed by Blacks against Whites in the U.S. Blacks under 18 are more than 12 times more likely to be arrested for murder than Whites the same age.

    Some 90% of the victims of race crimes are Whites. Blacks commit 7.5 times more violent interracial crimes than Whites, although they comprise only one-seventh of the White population.

    On a per-capita basis, blacks commit 50 times more violent crimes than Whites. Some 27 million nonviolent crimes were committed in the U.S. in 1992 alone. 31% of the robberies involved Black offenders and White victims; only 2% involved White offenders and Black victims.

    1.3 million of the 6.6 million violent crimes committed in the U.S. each year are interracial. Between 1964 and 1994, more than 45,000 people were killed in interracial murders in the U.S., compared to 58,000 Americans killed in Vietnam and 38,000 killed in Korea.

    The above stats were collected by an Australian reporter, Neil Sheehan, who dug out half-concealed U.S. crime figures for an article in the Sydney Morning Herald (May 2, 1995). The contents of his article, he commented, could not possibly be published or discussed in the U.S. mainstream media.

    1. It is us against them. Fortunately we won this time!

    2. .

      Given the sources for these statistics, I would have to take them with a grain of salt without seeing the raw data. Mainly, because the FBI data doesn't come in a format that makes getting this data easy and it requires a little 'extrapolation' according to the New Century Foundation in order to comes up with the stats. And given that it is the New Century Foundation doing the extrapolating, a foundation described as 'right leaning', that describes itself as 'white separatist', and has been described as 'white supremacist', I would be a little cautious.


  20. But Rubio loyalist and Republican operative Ana Navarro called the “anti-women” charge “silly.” “Maybe we should call Marco’s mom, his two sisters, his wife and his two daughters and ask them if he is anti-women,” she told TIME.

    “I’m not enthusiastic about waging a federal battle over the abortion issue, but I also think people can disagree on this issue and that doesn’t make them anti-women or anti-babies or anti-God.”

    “Let’s also not forget that Marco has made the fight against human trafficking, a crime that particularly preys on women, one of his signature issues,” Navarro added. “Women are more than a vagina and I wish groups would be a little more careful about defining somebody as pro-women or anti women solely based on the abortion issue.”

  21. No race crime here:

  22. In Philadelphia, black on white crime IS A DAILY OCCURRENCE.

  23. The verdict is in for George Zimmerman and the mainstream media and the Hollywood puppets are yet again trying to tell us how to think.


    First of all, Beyonce had a moment of silence to “honor” Trayvon Martin:

    After asking the crowd to be silent for a moment, she sang the chorus of “I Will Always Love You,” a song written by country music star Dolly Parton and brought to a global audience by the late Whitney Houston, before transitioning into her hit “Halo.”

    Young Jeezy wrote a song, “It’s a Cold World (A Tribute to Trayvon Martin)”, that he posted to Facebook, with the following comment:

    If you are white, on the street, in a parking lot, at an ATM, stop in a late night convenience store and you do not profile young black males in hoodies or white ghetto t-shirts, you are going down.

    Debate swirled Sunday over the not-guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, as public officials and private citizens focused on racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice. Mayor Nutter, who last year called the shooting "an assassination," was among those who expressed disappointment in George Zimmerman's exoneration of any criminal wrongdoing.

    Zimmerman had faced second-degree murder or manslaughter charges. "A young black man is dead without any real explanation," Nutter said in a statement. "George Zimmerman took an innocent life. Trayvon Martin, who at trial was made to appear threatening when all he had was a bag of Skittles and an ice tea, should not have died at Zimmerman's hands, and I believe the jury should have exacted a penalty."

    From government offices and church pulpits, to public plazas and riverwalks, people - many with strong emotions - weighed in on the jury verdict that was issued late Saturday night. Outside the Municipal Services Building, the statue of former Mayor Frank Rizzo, who had a poor relationship with Philadelphia's African-American community, was a focal point Sunday for a vigil for Martin.

    "This system is still racist," read a poster that was hung around the statue's neck. Passers-by took pictures of the demonstration area and voiced their opinions on the verdict. "A young black kid was killed because he was black," said Aine Ni Shoinnaigh, 35, an Ireland native who immigrated to the United States five years ago. “If Trayvon had been a young white kid in that suburb smoking a crack pipe, he probably would have been allowed to go home."

    3. The fact is simple.

      As long as the so called leaders of the "african american" community seek professional victimhood? They will never grow up.

      that is why trayvon was being heralded as an angel today....

      the truth?

      a punk. father was a life long crip.

      generational victimhood and savagery

    4. .

      I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

      The only thing that is even better is a watching a flock of anonymous anonymi, clueless and mewling, duking it out like Gru's minions from Despicable Me.

      It doesn't get any better than this.


    5. We're all nattering nabob's of negativism, you said so yourself. What do you expect?

      Personally, I don't much trust a man who steals words and phrases from the likes Spiro Agnew.

      But that's just me.

    6. >>>the truth?

      a punk. father was a life long crip.<<<

      Oh, come ON. What a characterization.

      Why, just today I was listening as the Rev Jesse Jackson, whose son is by the way in Federal Prison, and the VERY Rev Al Sharpton saying we "must honor Trayvon's legacy", and always "celebrate his spirit".

      It's true I asked myself, what legacy, other than a short criminal career, doing drugs, and dropping out of school, and getting in fights at every first chance, and I wondered what spirit - criminal spirit, fighting spirit, spirit of ignorance, and then finding the task too difficult I decided to just take Jesse's and Al's word for it all.

    7. .

      But then who is this 'me' guy?

      Who knows? Who really cares? This/that particular 'me' is just an incremental piece of that great clusterfuck that is the anonymous anonymi, a conglomeration of witless, nameless cyphers who argue amongst themselves anonymously, like some blind cyber-beast with a multiple personality complex.

      Now, if I were forced to make a guess as to which personality was offering up this latest tripe, I would have to say it was probably Anonymous-bob, the purported English major from the great state of Idaho. This is only because the latest post suffers from Anonymous-bob's oft-mentioned (and ironic) shortcomings when it comes to English composition, namely a lack of reading comprehension and a failure to remember what he, himself, has written.

      Actually, I never wrote nattering nabob's of negativism. In truth, it was Anonymous-bob himself that first used the phrase today.

      I can only suggest that given his obvious deficiencies and lapses, it might be wise for Anonymous-bob to have one of the other anonymi, perhaps Anonymous-Ali, proofread his comments prior to posting them.


    8. You did the best you could with your failing memory, Quirk. I just filled it out for you.

      It was a long time ago.

  29. Prosecutors sought to portray Zimmerman as an angry vigilante who was "fed up" after a series of burglaries at the Retreat at Twin Lakes gated community and who wrongly assumed that Martin, who was wearing a hooded top, was a criminal who was "up to no good".

    Despite the not guilty verdict, Zimmerman will continue to be hounded by the case, members of his family have said.

    "He's going to be looking around his shoulder for the rest of his life," the acquitted man's brother Robert Zimmerman Jr told CNN.


  30. This morning I lucked out and was able to buy two boxes of ammo at Wal-Mart.

    I placed the boxes on the front seat and headed back home, but stopped at a gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a short skirt was filling up her car at the next pump.

    She glanced at the two boxes of ammo, bent over and leaned in my
    passenger window, and said in a sexy voice, "I'm a big believer in barter, old fella. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?"

    I thought for a few seconds and asked, "What kind of ammo 'ya got?"

  31. Bank of Japan Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda spoke Thursday after a policy board meeting, declaring that Japan is now in a moderate recovery, the most optimistic expression in more than two years. He said overseas economies, in particular China, are of concern.

    “Since China is the world’s second-largest economy, its impact on the global economy including Asia and Japan is growing greater, so we will monitor it closely,” he said. While he said he saw China achieving stable growth, Mr. Kuroda did add: “Careful attention should be paid to issues including shadow banking.”

    The Japanese government has also singled out the Chinese economy as an issue that it “needs to be mindful of” along with fiscal spending cuts in the U.S., in its monthly economic assessment report for June. It was the first time the Cabinet Office described China’s economy as a risk.

    From Yahoo,

    The government's official growth target for 2013 is 7.5 percent, impressive by world standards but it would be the slowest pace in 23 years for China.

    The latest data showed the economy grew 7.6 percent in the first half of the year from a year earlier, just ahead of the full-year target.

    Analysts have cut their forecasts for 2013 full-year growth in recent weeks following a run of weak data and government comments on slowing growth. Ahead of Monday's economic figures, they were mostly forecasting 2013 growth between 7 and 7.5 percent...

    A number of churches nationwide declared today 'Hoodie Sunday' in honor of Trayvon Martin. Reverend Tony Lee of the Community of Hope A.M.E. Church in Temple Hills, Maryland delivered his sermon in a hooded sweatshirt. While the six women of the jury in Florida said George Zimmerman was acting in self-defense when he shot Martin, many in Lee's congregation are not convinced. There is outrage and disappointment among many members of the black community.

    Lee said, "I don't want this kind of stuff to happen to another one of our children." He mentioned the election of President Obama and said that each time we have progress it's met with push-back. He encouraged everyone at the service to keep moving forward. "We have to hold the nation accountable but we also have to hold accountable the people who are shaping culture and shaping the atmosphere in which a young man could be dehumanized. Some of that comes from outside but some comes from our own community." Following the sermon, Lee held a recruiting drive for the church's Social Justice Ministry, which works to combat community violence and improve education and health services
