´Boycott Florida´ isn´t so
simple, experts say

CNN, by Michael Martinez

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/27/2013 4:01:43 PM

Many angry Americans are urging a punishment on Florida in the killing of Trayvon Martin: a boycott. Musician Stevie Wonder won´t perform there. Martin Luther King III is considering deploying the tactic -- often used by his famous father in the civil rights era -- against Florida products like orange juice. Social media activists advance boycott plans even on the state´s official tourism page on Facebook. Their actions seek the repeal of Florida´s "stand your ground" self-defense law, which was at the center of a national debate in the wake of Martin´s shooting death. George Zimmerman´s lawyers didn´t

So far the boycott threats seem to be coming only from people who it they did arrive in Florida would lower the states average IQ just by stepping across the state line. Don´t these fools understand that Florida´s SYG law has been a great boon for Florida´s black people?

Let me see if I´ve got this straight - people who employ personal security guards want to boycott Florida for the Stand Your Ground law over the Zimmerman verdict, a case that had nothing to do with Stand Your Ground. The illogical left strikes again.

Way back in the 1960s when Ross Allen´s Reptile Institute was in Silver Springs--it closed years ago--one of the top attractions was watching one of the curators pin down the head of one of the big eastern diamondback rattlesnakes, grip it securely, and milk it of its venom, which was yellow-orange in color. (One good bite from one of these snakes could kill you in a few hours.) One year I heard one of those brave curators say that as long as you didn´t have any cuts in your mouth, you could drink the venom safely. (You could!) Then, the true Floridian, he added, "It tastes kind of like California orange juice."

If these misguided Trayvon fanatics ever knew what many of us non-racist white folks did standing up in public to the Klan and related white racists, they´d be ashamed of themselves for calling us racists. We put our lives at risk for the likes of them, and they spit on us now. Sad.

A useless effort by the black left to prove how much collective economic clout they have.

The problem with this whole effort is that most Americans aren´t sympathetic to what they are calling a travesty of justice.

On the other side of the coin you have obesity warriors like MO telling people to eat healthy which includes drinking orange juice.

The story should read, "Many (black) Americans..." Where is their anger regarding all the murders of black children in Chicago? I guess black on black violence doesn´t count to race baiters such as Al Sharpton or our president. Boycott Florida? Not me. Booking a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale today. It´s so sad that this is what has become of our great nation. Divided once again by race.

No. 5´s joke about California ornge juice reminds me of another old joke: If a truck ran over a Texas orange it would not leave a wet spot in the road.

People have boycotted Florida before. We have survived. In fact, Florida has continued to flourish despite taking in thousands of foreigners from countless countries and managing to provide work for them. I would lay odds we have the most ethnically diverse population in the nation.
The only people causing any trouble are young, male American blacks.

If you´re black and live in Florida , how exactly do you boycott Florida ?
By moving out of state ?
The BGI-The Black Grievance Industry -has tried to make Trayvon into MLK , Jr.
" Boycotts require a commitment,
such as when the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led a successful boycott against ....as part of the civil rights movement, experts said."
Blacks make up 13 % of the population and make up 27.6% of the poor population.
They don´t presently have the numbers to successfully drive a boycott of an entire state to
honor a 17 year old street thug.
If blacks want to boycott anything , they should begin by boycotting rap music, street drugs , illegitimacy , failing school and dropping out of school.

Typical morons from CNN. If you want to talk state boycotts and use AZ use Ev Mecham and the phony MLK Day controversy. That was an effective boycott. Everyone in AZ politics and media was in on it. The more we suffered the easier it was to get rid of Mecham. The SB 1070 boycott numbers are a farce. For every convention dollar lost we picked up 1-1.5 dollars in new tourism. No Florida boycott will have any success.

"Boycott Florida" - a dumb idea by dumb people. Some idiots over at racist headquarters must have forgotten that a lot of blacks live and work in Florida. They forgot that many blacks are employed by Orange growers and harvesters. They will only hurt their own kind if they boycott orange juice, but they are too dumb to realize that. Blacks are causing more and more Americans to view them as racists and are only hurting themselves in the long run.

Obama: Right to vote ´threatened´ by GOP

President Obama on Friday said that Republicans were behind the biggest threat to voting rights in decades. “The principle of one person, one vote is the single greatest tool we have to redress an unjust status quo. You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

ORLAND, Calif.- It was a busload of opportunity: young, low-income, motivated students, destined to become the first in their families to go to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650 miles north. Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead - students, chaperones and both drivers - and dozens hospitalized. Desperate families awaited word about loved ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved across the grassy divide of California´s key artery before sideswiping a car and slamming into

President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president´s statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it.

A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013. The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations. From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services. The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red

Instead of getting to work on my own tax return, I´d rather look at President Barack Obama´s. So the White House did me a favor by releasing the 2013 joint federal income tax return of Barack and Michelle Obama Friday afternoon. Here are some highlights: • The Obamas paid $98,169 in total federal income tax on adjusted gross income of $481,098. That´s an effective tax rate of 20.4 percent. • The Obamas are due a tax refund of $19,108. What should they spend it on? • Besides his salary, Obama reported $104,809 in business income from book sales. That´s down

Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and
