Dems Back Off 'Trayvon Amendment'
breitbart ^ | 9 May 2012 | Breitbart News

Posted on 05/09/2012 8:40:04 PM PDT by smokingfrog

The controversial “Trayvon Amendment” proposed by House Democrats, which would have punished states for having “Stand Your Ground” laws on their books, has been withdrawn by the Democrats. The amendment was named after Trayvon Martin, the black teenager killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, under disputed circumstances.

Apparently, the amendment process was mishandled in this case, and it was ruled out of order. One of the main sponsors of the amendment, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), said that he wanted to choose a better time to push the issue, even though just yesterday, Ellison was stumping for the amendment with fervency

After viewing It’s a Wonderful Life, President Harry S Truman concluded, “If Bess and I had a son we’d want him to be just like Jimmy Stewart.”

Maybe their strategy is to pass so many unconstitutional laws that the Supreme Court won’t have time to strike them all down.

I’m really trying to understand why the regime is so interested in a full-on race war. I can’t see how they benefit.

But if using the death of some 17yo thug in FL to start a huge Charlie Fox in the masses is to the benefit of the Socialist Demonrat party, and that is where they want to go, OK d00dz.

See you on the field of battle, I guess. Damn fools.

When the Republicans get through taking care of Wisconsin, they need to slide across the border and start in Minnesota. This Neilsen muslim would not put his hand on a Bible when he was sworn in. A muslim and a comedienne! Shame on Minnesota.

If they keep milking it, eventually the cash cow will run dry and nobody will care anymore.

Sally,

I still trying to figure out where this whole thing is going.

Are all white peeps gonna have to get a beat down for Justice, or wut? I ain’t taking a beating for Trayvon to get Justice, not without some opposition on my part, anyway.

Rev. Al shows up on my street, the trees will fall on his head by some weird co-inky-dink.

And then there will be much rejoicing, and Alice will be singing about Gutter Cats vs. The Jets and all that.

IN!!!

Bwahahahaha, I heard that on the Gun Talk podcast I listened to on the way to work today.

I spent all the money with SA I can stand to for a while, and SWMBO (that is She Who Must Be Obeyed) seems to be leaning toward the Austrian striker-fired 9mm even after all my lobbying for the SA, so Mother’s Day may involve some gunpowder but it won’t be coming from Illinois/Croatia, apparently.

Likely some new piece of evidence is going to surface soon that looks bad for the Prosecutors.

More like there is no evidence that looks good for prosecutors. Absolutely nothing points to wrongdoing.

Please do! We need all the help we can get over here.
Ellison is an affirmative action dumbass. He’ll throw darts until something hits the board, it’s the only way he knows.
Create a congressional district comprised of welfare recipients and educrats, and this is what you get... an America hating muslime. (See tagline)
