Rioting for Trayvon, &c.
National Review ^ | 7/17/2013 | Jay Nordlinger

You’ve probably seen this news, but have a dose anyway: “Protesters ran through Los Angeles streets Monday night, breaking windows, attacking people on sidewalks and at one point raiding a Wal-Mart store . . .”

Nothing says “Honor Trayvon” like vandalizing, accosting, and stealing, right? You can either laugh or weep — emphasis on the latter.

* A headline: “Obamas to return to Martha’s Vineyard this summer.” (Article here.) And in a Bob Costa post, I read that more than 20 Democratic senators have already been in Martha’s Vineyard, holding meetings or something.

Never forget: The Republican party is the party of the rich, pampered, and carefree. I’ve heard it since childhood, and so have you, I bet. And Mitt Romney? Too “plutocratic” to be president.

* This was interesting: A North Korean ship was returning home from Cuba. The Panamanians stopped the ship. There were sugar containers, as you might expect. But in those containers were parts for missiles. Well, we should expect that too.

Isn’t it nice that the Norks and the Castros are in bed? They are a perfect match. The Castros’ many, many supporters here in the U.S. must be proud.

The North Korean captain, by the way, tried to kill himself, as his ship was being searched. I take it he was following orders. (“If your ship is searched, off yourself, so you can’t talk.”) I wish some clear-thinking John le Carré — i.e., not le Carré himself — were around to novelize this.

Today, you have to beg permission, and pay off the stasi, just to dig a hole to go to the bathroom in!

I don't understand Trayvon's parents. Most parents, when they go through the horrific loss of a child, want to do something that saves other children.

They would serve their son's memory in a positive way if they'd use this as an opportunity to educate other parents about the dangers of these drug cocktails created from over-the-counter foods and medications. Or maybe reminding everyone walking around a city or suburb at night to stay on sidewalks, carry a flashlight, and identify yourself willingly. Those are things people do to stay safe, even in the safest of neighborhoods.

They asked for a trial by jury, they got a trial by jury. Looks like what the rabble-rousers really wanted was a lynching.

Yes, very cynical. But also very true.

this mother was not in Travons life she gave him up when he was a small boy..READ THIS-

Her voice shaking with pain and tears in her eyes, Stanley explained that she had helped raise Trayvon since he was 3-years-old, and that he was at her home with his father and her daughters “90 percent” of the time. this was his step mother..

The mother and father didn’t waste time making money on the dead boy..

SANFORD — Trayvon Martin’s parents have settled a wrongful-death claim for an amount thought to be more than $1 million against the homeowners association of the Sanford subdivision where their teenage son was killed.

Not a bad thing at all, actually...

No, it's not.
