I don't care what political persuasion you are, that was a weird quote.
I think it was okay to do what he did, offer a quick opinion on it since he was asked, get in and out quickly with some innocuous statement, since it's a local issue (even if the Feds are called in, it's still a local occurrence), and not something the President of the United States should concern himself with. So in that respect he did fine.
But - what the $#@! was that???? That's how he addresses the issue? If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon? WTF???? All blacks look alike? I $#@!ed Trayvon's mother? I mean, what the $#@! was that? Maybe he meant "I'd like to THINK if I had a son he'd look like"... or "I can see a son of mine looking and being like Trayvon", or some such. But I'm sorry, that was just weird $#@!. Makes no logical sense whatsoever. I think I see the sentiment but it was really, really awkward.
Anyway he got in and out. That should be the extent of it from him. I can see some type of predictable "what does it all mean for us" quote or whatnot, but lay off the incident now. I'm still scratching my $#@!ing head though over that comment. Just weird.
okay, so it's today's RW talking points to say:
1) white guy almost getting kilt by black dudes, what about that!! you liberals are hippocrits!!! we searched far and wide fer this example to balance things out rather than solve stuff, and btw, ed schultz said "slut" once!!!
2) obama has no right to comment on nothing. he = worst prez ever. shut up mr prezdent and quit yer day job!! rent be too damn high!! i want country back!!
this is every day's talking points, more or less. yer thintanks are hideous monstrosities sheerly for the fact that they endlessly busy themselves with duckings from deserved responsibility by permeating civic discourse with drivel, like #1 and #2 and whatever #3 thru #462,515,432,543,125,432,640.9654 will be, tomorrow.
Well, clearly that is how Obama and the Democrats are playing this, bringing out Jesse Jackson and the whole race-baiting machine. But politically, who is really going to see it that way? If it was a cop, or an old white redneck shooting this kid, that would be one think. But a Hispanic youth shoots a black kid? Who besides the hard left is going to lay this at the doorstep of Republicans? I think Hispanics will just see it as the President bullying a Hispanic defendant who may have had a legit case of self-defense. The President's team is just not very astute sometimes in the fights they pick.NOPE. there is not. there is not blame to go around to Trayvon for his death either. every example i provided, the blame goes squarely ON BUSH and the Repub party
A) that you think this is purely a political "play" --- that it's somehow a "fight" --- speaks volumes, and it says everything i've ever needed to know about your side, and re-validates everything i already knew about your side.The President's team is just not very astute sometimes in the fights they pick.
B) 'bring out jessie jackson and the race-baiting machine' == HA! as if Obama controls a race-baiting machine. He spins Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton like a top??? LOL, those guys could care less what the WH purportedly instructs them to do. if this is about race, it's about a black kid got gunned down by the cracker-assed NRA.
c) blacks v hispanics == sorry, that's got so little to do w this. you can't appropriate the mexicans to save your ass on this one. you've spent way too much capital calling them lazy criminals who ought to be rounded up and tossed from their minimum wage jobs so as to suit your party's racist inclinations.
this is guns vs reason. and reason, like always, will win in the end --- and when it does, it'll be called "progress".
The southern strategy-esq middle class $#@!ing cowboy playtime redstate redneckin trickle downin Reagan regressin Koch Boys experiment shall be done, kaput, forever - methinks this November, thanks to Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Slut, Stand your ground, Rush, I like to fire people, Fox, etch-a-sketch etc etc.
and good riddance to it all.
Wingers running in a circle chasing their tail.
I'd really rather hear the president say something to the affect of "why does someone do something so damn stupid like stalking a kid cause he's black or imolating a kid with gasoline cause he's white ?"
YEP, exactly. If you were to reduce Bill Clinton's entire administration to one sentence, other than "it's the economy, stupid" or "I feel your pain" or "I did not have sex with that woman" - it would be something about how great Stalin $#@!ing was.Translation: you believe in the power of government to take one group's money and redistribute it to another group to pay that other group's bills.
Obama is basically Stalin pt 2. Look at corporate America, BROKE AS ALL GET OUT. That Obama, taking over capitalisms and givin it all away to the dirty poopin occupy hippies.
Again, i love how conservatives tell me how massively brainwashed i am cuz i prefer the discernible practical intelligence of dems over the weirdo inflexible absolutism of repubs (as should anybody sane), but, the best part is this - while they do it - while they chide me for my intolerable expressions of bias, they inundate me with their maniacal zero-to-quarter-truth talking points blathers, all of which, are arrived at ONLY as an outgrowth of the inveterate media brainwashing they accuse the left of peculiarly indulging in.
But, since nowheres in observable reality is ANYTHING they say ever true, not a granule of it identifiable anywhere outside of RW radio imagination -- WHY THE F should i temper my bias??? I shouldn't. Being accused of unilateral bias by the most freakingly mindwarped propaganda-saturated children on earth is, IMO, all the reasoning i need to re-bolster all of my prejudices, 100fold.
Beyond that, the fact that my opinions seem to be nearly always thoroughly supported by empirical reality -- well, that deepens my intuitive desire to exclaim "WHAT A BUNCH OF $#@!IN BULL$#@!!!!!" immediately after every sentence every uttered out of the noisy mouths of the reactionary right.
WHAT $#@!ING BULL$#@!.Translation: you believe in the power of government to take one group's money and redistribute it to another group to pay that other group's bills.
so you'd rather hear the president incorporate YOUR self-serving talking points w every breath??I'd really rather hear the president say something to the affect of "why does someone do something so damn stupid like stalking a kid cause he's black or imolating a kid with gasoline cause he's white ?"
cool, so what, but both he and i could care less what you guys wanna hear.
republican radio provides all the audible crock-o-$#@! nonsense you guys could possibly ever listen to. 24/7. it's there for YOU, to soothe ya, go ahead and partake in it and stop demanding that others adhere to the silly voices careening thru yer skulls.
One of the problems on the affirmative action debate that you have to get through is that people simply don't know how it works. A discussion related to race is more difficult if people don't even understand what they are arguing about.
does the OP still deny that he's an angry high schooler in the Woodlands?
I'm not gonna bash him for his comments, he is after all acutely aware of the $#@! that happens to black people at the hands of racially motivated people
I don't see a problem with that. The shooter indicated in the 911 call that the kid was acting like he was on something. It makes sense to gather the evidence that either supports or disproves the shooter's perception. Honestly, I think it's the only reasonable defense the shooter potentially has. As far as whether they should test the shooter, the shooter has a say in that. If there wasn't some reason to suspect he was $#@!ed up (other than a dead kid at his feet) I wouldn't see the cops pushing it.Reportedly, they tested the kid with Skittles for drugs and alcohol and did no such tests on the shooter.
where??????????????!!!!!!From those according to their abilities to them according to their needs. Its wealth redistribution straight up.
OMG SOCIALIZMS = so f'n trite.
oh, you mean like how all the Red States are hoooked on the welfares>>>???
you mean how corporate america absolutely THRIVES off of the goverment tit>>>>???
ok, you gotta point, sorry, i stand (my ground) corrected.
Well the populace enables it. If Obama is re-elected it's going to be because he is going to drop nearly a billion dollars into this election. $#@! I can't go on youtube without seeing his smug ass face plastered everywhere. You aren't going to be President in this country if you aren't willingly to drop A-Rod money on your campaign.
I stopped reading when the OP wrote that 49 people got murdered in a weekend in Chicago. Do you how $#@!ing stupid you have to be to believe/write that?
OooooH yeah, i am a super socialist statist authoritarian!! i loves all that COOL intellectual sounding debate class descriptor stuff! don't know what the F any of it means cuz it's all just banal RW bromide, but it sounds like something real, so f it, i am gonna embrace it and be the best statist authoritarian ivory tower science hoax elitist EVERS. i am a GAY MARRYING EAST COAST livin documentary film festival hipster SUPER JOOO CANADIAN FRENCHIE TERRORISt-SYMPATHIZING MUSLOOM WHO BOWS TO world leaders on my apology tour yada yada GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL + SAVE OUR SPRINGS + NEITZSZHCHE SAID OMG IS DEAD + iPHONE 4G!!
hmmm, i guess you gotta call me a statist and an authoritarian and a stalin hitler because my dislike of you makes you squirmy, as it is too strident and unpalatable for you to deal with, as possibly, a reasonable dislike of you which YOU deserve, SO... i gotta be a monster socialist who looooooves euro disco taxes and China Mao PBS NPR PC man-hating feminismZ anti-americanismz lesbian sanfrancisco occupy hippy redistributions.... and thus, i can be discounted, dismissed and rationalized away by "snippy white menz with beer bellies" who think themselves mayflower-descendant kings of america. (#whitepower!!)
"statist" btw is the probably the dumbest least meaningful word in the english language these days... other than "foodie".
i hate the RW christo fascismZ just as much as i hate PETA commie nizz ism. i also hate authority, and i hate food. #btw.
Do you know how $#@!ing stupid you have to be miss the point? So what a number of those 49 were lucky and the bullets missed vital organs. So we have 11 murders (including a 6 year old girl) and 38 attempted murders in one weekend. The point here is that there is a massive amount of crime in this country, outside of Sanford, FL. One of the worst spots is the City of Chicago. Jackwagon.
eatALL, I understand you are passionate, but Jesus Christ. Take a couple of these:
As for the Trayvon Martin case:
Fact #1: This political nightmare could be ended by arresting this Zimmerman dude.
Fact #2: They haven't arrested him.
This second fact is not because they don't care about a black kid's murder (this should be obvious). The easy thing to do would be to throw Zimmerman under the bus and move on with life, but the fact that they aren't doing that suggests that there might be more to the story than what has been made public.
Wait-and-see attitude is the best way to not end up arguing a point you would never have subscribed to in the first place. I will be withholding my judgment until all of the facts of the case are made public.
He had tattoos and had been suspended from school so Zimmerman was justified in what he did. wearing a sweatshirt with a hood is reasonable grounds for search and seizure, $#@! a fourth amendment, blacks are scary at night. Suspended from school, maybe a drug dealer? Thank god he got shot by this adult with a history of domestic violence and racial paranoia.

Does anyone know where Trayvon Martin was shot? I mean, what part of his body was hit with the bullet? Wouldn't that little fact be important in figuring all of this out? Anyone?
Lots of opinions. Precious few facts.
