America has made George Zimmerman´s

President Obama said Friday that Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old shot dead last year, could have been him as a young man. ´You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago,´ Obama said in a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. Speaking for the first time about the outcome of the Trayvon Martin case, Obama said black Americans feel pain over George Zimmerman´s acquittal for Martin´s

Really, Barack? You were a lousy student who smacked bus drivers, burglarized homes, and sold drugs and guns illegally? That could have been you? Really?

That´s quite an admission. And here we got our undies in a twist about whether Bill Clinton inhaled or not....

The great uniter speaks. What a friggin´ tool.

He wants to stir up dissention so people forget about his multiple scandals such as the IRS and Benghazi. So obvious.

This man is unable to control his mouth. Just when America needs quiet, dignified leadership, we get racial pandering.

As #1 said, what a tool.

Somewhere, out there, is a ´CAC´ (Creepy Azz Cracka), who has had about enough of this snit.

It ain´t me, (wheelchair bound veteran)but I get the strong gut feeling that some old Master Sargent or Gunny has had about enough of all this.

The Department of Homeboy Security is, ironically, correct in their fear of the homicidal potential of returning veterans.

This is not a threat....just an observation.

So let me understand...Trayvon Martin was shot more than one time?
In other words, 35 years ago he was a wannabe gansta?

At 17, Obama was a student at an exclusive prep school, being raised by a white family, living in Hawaii, where skin color was irrelevant. He would have not had a problem walking through a department store. He didn´t become "black" for a long time, not till it served him politically.

I was in the thrift store at our church yesterday and was telling the ladies about the jar of donations for an animal welfare organization and how it had been stolen at an event I was at over the weekend. A couple of black ladies were in there shopping and they must have heard the word ´stolen.´ They came to the lady in charge and said something like we may be black, but we didn´t come here to steal. We came here to buy. My friend said no one is accusing you of anything and someone was just telling a story of how some money was taken yesterday that had been given to an animal organization. I am so tired of that big chip these people wear on their shoulders, just waiting for someone to try to knock it off.

So, what 0bama was really saying was he understood that Trayvon was just as bigoted as 0bama is and always has been.

There was a racist element to the attack that ended in Trayvons´ death. IT was on the part of Trayvon, he chose to jump ugly on some "creepy-azz-cracka" because he wasn´t going to allow a white person to disrespect him. It was just poor judgement that he didn´t realize the cracka might be armed.

The more I think about this the more I suspect it was aimed at guilty white liberals. They are far more likely to accept the image of Obama as a wannabe teen gangsta without giggling than urban blacks. When I look at Obama I wish we had an exact equivalent to that wonderful British slang He´s a bit of a ponce.

Trayvon Martin´s problem was that he decided to circle back and deliver a little whoopass against a chubby, easy-going Neighborhood Watch volunteer, sucker-punched him, pinned him on the ground and beat on his face and head, and didn´t realize he was armed.

I have no doubt in my mind that if a white 17-year old had committed the exact same kind of felony aggravated assault, the results would be the same.

Only the aftermath would be different. No coast-to-coast political paroxysms of anger and grievance would be wasted on a dead white guy.

NEW YORK -- Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages. The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it´s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It´s part of an ongoing campaign by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and bring attention to the rights of low-wage workers. Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald´s was stealing their wages in a

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Secession: Following Sunday´s forced referendum and despite U.S. and European Union sanctions, it looks like Russia will succeed in separating Crimea from Ukraine. Are the borders of every country now up for grabs? We´ve heard all the arguments, including that Crimea´s population is 58% Russian, and that it was only in 1954, during the Soviet era under Nikita Khrushchev — himself a Ukrainian — that it became part of Ukraine. But allowing Crimea to be pried away from Ukraine by threat of force after Russia´s fraudulent referendum sends a signal to disgruntled regions of the world that, when it comes to borders,

LOS ANGELES — A National Guard reservist has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in Washington for allegedly trying to aid al-Qaida in a plot to attack a Southland subway. Nicholas Teausant, 20, of Acampo, Calif., was charged Monday with attempting to provide material to support a foregoing terrorist organization, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. Teausant was arrested at the Canadian border “with the intent of continuing to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a foreign terrorist organization more widely known as al-Qaida in Iraq,” officials said.

When does it become stalking? When does it invade privacy? How close to a home can a drone go?” Feinstein said, listing

The best test could come this Tuesday, when the defense and foreign ministers of Russia and France are scheduled to meet for long-planned talks on relations between the two countries. French president François Hollande has already announced that “there will be sanctions Monday on visas and assets of a certain number of [Russian] individuals if there is no de-escalation.” But he absolutely must go further.

After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date.

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson plans to lead a delegation to the Hewlett-Packard annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday to bring attention to Silicon Valley´s poor record of including blacks and Latinos in hiring, board appointments and startup funding. Jackson´s strategy borrows from the traditional civil rights era playbook of shaming companies to prod them into transformation.
