Justice for Trayvon? That’s a laugh. There will be no “justice” for Trayvon, not while the race pimps exploit his tragedy for their own ends and while his surviving “brothers” are failed by their peers, their parents, and their culture. Trayvon was doomed before he ever crossed paths with George Zimmerman. Suspended from school multiple times for suspicion of burglary, drugs, fighting, and other “character building traits,” what kind of future could he hope for outside of a short-lived career in rap music, drug dealing, mixed martial arts fighting, or a combination of all three? He’d be lucky to graduate from high school, and like his friend Rachel Jeantel, have a worthless diploma granted only to get him out of the failed educational system so his teachers wouldn’t have to worry about him an extra year while concentrating on the next class that will be even more unteachable.
George Zimmerman is not the problem. The thug mentality and low expectations of the Trayvon Martins of the world is.

The prosecution failed to make its case. The jury needed to be convinced that Zimmerman was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. There was apparently still plenty of doubt, especially from the prosecution, whose witnesses at times made the case FOR the defense and at the last minute tried to slip in another charge as if to hedge its bet. Unless you were at the scene of the incident and and sat through the trial and watched all 56 witnesses testify, it doesn't matter what you or anyone else similarly exposed to the case thinks. What matters is what the jury thought.

The latest snarky meme seems to be that legitimate gun owners and Concealed Carry applicants suffer from "Small Penis Syndrome." Do the snarks know that a considerable number of new gun owners are women?

"They've awakened a sleeping giant," said King. More like they've aggravated a dormant but festering pustule. This isn't an attack on unions, it's the promotion of freedom. Michigan and Ohio unions will now be motivated to do what they do best: Not work, but cause a disturbance.

Whether the libs or the inattentive knew it or not, this is what they voted for. Since Ohio is not setting up an exchange under ObamaCare, that will complicate matters a bit more. Obamacare was NEVER about providing healthcare to those who don't have it; that could have been done with 1/10th the amount of money now scheduled to be wasted (er, borrowed, THEN wasted) on Obamacare.

The Perjurer and The Plagiarist! Together on one stage!

Grog is onto something. The mills were faced with a dilemma: make a massive reinvestment of profits into modernized production equipment (to increase productivity), or keep paying more and more to the unions (with no increase in productivity) to avoid costly strike after costly strike. Neither alternative was financially sustainable due to past management and the prevailing financial climate (this was during Carter's high-tax/interest/inflation "Malaise" period, remember). Petulant unions still haven't learned that businesses are started not primarily to provide jobs, but to MAKE MONEY, and in so doing they provide jobs. The necessity of unions to remind businesses that they must be competitive for the best employees as well as solid customers is rapidly diminishing.

What's wrong with discrimination? I'm all for the freedom to enjoy oneself during leisure time, but...
MadScientist and taxme--the next time you fly on an airplane stoned, do you think it would be ok for the pilot to be high, too? Pilots are not banned from using alcohol during leisure time, but usually "24 hours from bottle to the throttle" is the rule of thumb. Similar regs are in place for CDL drivers who drive passengers, big rigs, or cart Hazmats all over without spilling them in your neighborhood. There are tests for substances when these licenses are issued or renewed, and yes, they are discriminatory. If you don't have the self-control to abstain during the renewal process, how can you be trusted to abstain during the critical execution of your job?
So you smoke pot for "medicinal purposes." Fine. You should be able to enjoy your leisure time as you see fit. Pot may very well enhance your talents at writing code, but like alcohol, it affects each individual differently. Just don't be flying my plane while on your meds, please.

Tomcat, gay marriage measures are defeated in every state when offered as a referendum to the general public. Only courts and state legislatures have intervened where it has been made legal.

HellaBB nailed it. All the more reason for tort reform.
