    Well, well, well. If the photo of Zimmerman’s head on ABC is authentic, that does,
    or should, derail the “hanging train” that the rest of the news media have been stoking
    up the steam on. It should be interesting how Sharpton, et al, smother this one. Reminds
    me of the movie “Unstoppable” which slowed to a stop after the fuel was shut off. Perhaps
    this will be one of those “The Rest of the Story” incidents. And if the Florida prosecutor
    had that photo when she charged him with murder second, some serious questions will be in order for her regarding her ethics.

    We have slipped into some kind of alternate reality.


    3 Univ Colo students arrested for protecting several thousand dopers on campus openly defying the law on 4/20 …. dopers who were being protected by cops from these kids who don’t want drugs on campus. Cops sworn by law to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the State of Colorado and the laws of Boulder, CO, applying the law equally and without prejudice regardless of personal views.

    Take heed, fellow S&L’s …. what this means is that cops do what their Watch Commanders tell them to do, not what is Lawful.

    Down the road, what do you think this is going to mean?

    I … I … I got nothing ….

      Ann Coulter has written an amazing column about blacks and gun control, making the case that they should all join the NRA. She claims that Marin Luther King got a gun permit in 1956. Here’s the first part:

      Negroes With Guns

      Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and to demand tighter gun control. (MSNBC’S Karen Finney blamed “the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point.”)

      This would be like demanding more funding for the General Services Administration after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas.

      We don’t know the facts yet, but let’s assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood, just because he was black.

      If that were true, every black person in America should get a gun and join the National Rifle Association, America’s oldest and most august civil rights organization.

      Apparently this has occurred to no one because our excellent public education system ensures that no American under the age of 60 has the slightest notion of this country’s history.

      Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks. This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Ku Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance……

    I don’t get it. The guy is a secret service supervisor—supposedly an elite law enforcement position. Supposedly with more stringent requirements than almost any other job–they have to protect the president and the other political figures.

    Yet he talked about “checking Palin out” on Facebook? And he did this in 2009 and it only came up now? And this is in addition to the hiring of prostitutes and other behavior.

    Some people who work in government contractor positions are told they can’t use social media websites like Facebook because of any potential espionage or security breach. Yet this guy had one and was talking openly about it? I never talk about my real life job online–I don’t even work in a security related position–but it’s prudent as anything you post can come back to bite you.

    I just don’t get it, and things like this seem to happen more whenever the Democrats come back into power.

      The glaring cancer in our national midst is the drive towards being Credentialed instead of Educated.

      Chaney falls into the Credentialed category.

    RiverO: Coulter’s column actually says this about MLK:

    “This will give you an idea of how gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.”

    Point being that he couldn’t get a gun because blacks were discouraged and/or not allowed to have guns.

    Coulter wrote: “gun control is always a scheme of the powerful to deprive the powerless of the right to self-defense. “

    Yes it is! Here’s Ann explaining it to O’reilly.

    Obama the Dog-Eater the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE3cpsdMg3Q

    The (liberal) View covering up for him, “Obama did not put the daaawg in the pot, he juss ate the daawg….”

    Yeah, that’s what’s important, he didn’t actually kill and skin the dog alive he just merely ate dog, and we need to cover up the fact that liberals punched themselves in the face once again.

    Michelle Obama was behind the Ann Romney flap – http://moonbattery.com/?p=10905

    A Black man in Chicago couple of years ago won Supreme Court his right to own a gun. Since Chicago refuses survey their crime, it might be difficult to know if it’s helping cut down crime.

    RiverO. Let’s not forget Obama’s unforgettable first kill at 5 years old on his first night in Indonesia.

    Standing with Lolo as he swung that chicken and chopped it’s head, and “scarlet ribbons” of blood went flying everywhere because even though it;’s head was wacked off, it was suffering all over the place in pain. Then with a full tummy, Obama recalls thinking what an enchanting place he had come to.
