"Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Filing Bill To Cut Funding To Any State That Doesn’t Change “Stand Your Ground” Laws To “Duty To Retreat”"… Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Wednesday that she would soon introduce legislation that would cut federal funding to any state that doesn’t require neighborhood watch programs to register with police.

Jackson Lee said her Justice Exists for All Act is a response to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter charges after shooting 17-year old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch coordinator in the Florida neighborhood where the shooting took place.

“We will … decrease the incidence of gun violence resulting from vigilantes by reducing by 20 percent the funds that would otherwise be allocated… to any state that does not require local neighborhood watch programs to be registered with a local [law] enforcement agency,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor.

The Blacks in Houston’s Fourth Ward must be afraid that they’re being deprived of their right to plunder the property of others, so they’d be relieved to see the Texas Castle Doctrine repealed. But that will never happen.

Next, she’ll be threatening to cut off funding for states that don’t teach that Americans landed on Mars, or that South Vietnam still exists, or that Lincoln freed the slaves in the 1960s . . . .

--------

Except that Zimmerman wasn't a vigilante, he was a concerned citizen looking out for his neighborhood when he was attacked. Vigilantism is when someone wrongs you so you take the law into your own hands by killing them, or their family member, or a pedestrian who happens to be standing next to them during a drive-by. You know... like what happens everyday in da hood.

hitting you MMA style , while straddleing you , restraining your arms preventing any self-defense
How far into the ground does one have to retreat ?

Correct Answer : Six feet underground , "and carried by six "

Hey, I think we have a good idea here.

They cut funding to all the SYG states,
and in return, those states stop sending in federal tax dollars.

Win win.

I want something like this to happen since my personal selfish goal is to see all States free of Federal funding. I simply don’t believe the USC and founding fathers intended the fedgov to have such powers over the States as it does with funding.

Congresswoman Lee obviously wants more young Black males to go to prison.

49% of gun shot fatalities involve a young Black male.
About 5% of the population is made up of young Black males.
90% of gunshot fatalities were shot by other Black males.

Black males use the “Self Defense” argument with cops and juries all the time, to stay out of jail.

If some conservative Republican congressman wanted to pull her leg, when she offers here “Justice Exists for All Act”, they could offer a just the opposite bill, cutting off funding for those states *without* a Stand Your Ground law.

But what to call it?

Self Defense Exists for All Act?
The Second Amendment Exists for All Act?

Unfortunately we all have laughed at these people too much and too long. They mean what they say, are serious and will persist until they get what they want or until they are forcibly removed from positions of authority. Laughter is a mistake. They mean what they say.

What she’s after is explained here:
Subject: Re Socialist Injustice and
:How an examination of the Zimmerman trial of the Neighborhood Watch area exposes it

Since the Zimmernan not guilty verdict has been rendered, the facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice to be committed of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent.While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot upand lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..

Instead the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky won’t be able to move,.

Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation has skyrocketed placing those on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts because of this regimes socialist policies the sacrifice of Zimmerman must die for . This time to another communist plan. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare aren’t in it) won’t and never live there.

Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this despicable example of socialist justice which will turn on an innocent staunch supporter and churn out vicious life threatening propaganda against him just to mete out diatribes to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage..The least they can do is get the facts out for tthe reason for the trial and its background instead of cope-ing with Obama moving the ball futhur and furthur away from what was done in a “Neighborhood Watch Area” while they’re milking the emotion response.routine like “big brother “does..

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-backroom/3044800/posts
An example of this is demonstrated by the “news” circulating in local black or mixed areas in publications like the The New Amsterdam (linked) that unquestionly follow, follow,follow, like martinets., Are they being duped by the handouts of lies they’re getting from this government. and unwilling accomplices to a horrendous and disgusting injustice ? Or are they contributing to it for the good of the collective ? It’s a question only they should be made to answer. For those vehicles which contributed to this disgusting demonstration of disinformation of a continuing injustice should be asked and severly dealt with if they did.. It’s time to hold them accountable” ..

To reiterate; Many Neigborhood Watch areas consist of modest dwellings including the one Zimmerman was a “watch captain in are comprized of single dwelling units or as in Zimmermans case townhouses.His was a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families which banded together and set up patrols to protect their area.. In this case they were struggling with single and groups of young blacks from other “hoods” on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners in his area..Watch activities are closely co-ordinated with local police departments and follow very set protocols. Most conservative hosts demonstrate their ignorance and are rendering no futhur information then their listeners get from MSM .Thus allowing the MSM to set an agenda of distraction from this regimes history of corruption and scandal..

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3043817/posts

Usually such neighborhood watch areas are posted with a window or garden sign announcing that fact and those patrols will observe any one; black,white, green, or blue .If the area is “gated” even stop and question them. .

When such an area is “gated” public right of way is restricted to the entrances and exits to the area.. .That fact and the area wasn’t even divulged by any of the so called media because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed, because it couldn’t support any racial assertion or questioning of movement. ..

It would even explain Zimmerman’s action taken during his surveilance of Martin because this watch volunteer got out of his car and continued his observation on foot because he lost sight of Martin. In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. ....

According to the testimony there was an exchange after which as Zimmerman was going back to his vehicle Martin attacked him and was severly beating him to the extent he feared for his life. To put it bluntly Saint Trayvon was a smart ass punk who attacked a guy with a gun and got killed in the struggle over it when he had the guy on the ground.beating the hell out of him..

Obama in his latest attempt threw more gas on the fire by portraying Saint Trayvon as what he was, an irreponsible pot head and subsequently found to be a petty thief ..That explains Bengahazi, where he left a top American diplomat and his aides die and the rest of his scandals which includes “Travelgate II” not yet looked into Obama hopes his diatribes will hide. .

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, (very quickly dismissed ?) and a dark skinned “hispanic”. Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a white racist episode. Obama the boss of bosses and gets all the information about anybody ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining of the offending officer that Zimmerman fearlessly waged a campaign for and got.. .

The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . Used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edict-ed by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of the government we control step on you and squash you like some insect..

Why is this being done ? Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand ? Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ?So far the House and the media not surprizingly hasn’t gone into. Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. What better way to discourage that by organizing the base for riots in the streets ?

Until the quashers are quashed this will continue..

These idiots. Their ignorance of history is appalling. Guns, I am certain, saved the lives of more than a few black men and women during the height of KKK activities. Guns are the great equalizer when a mob attacks a lone man or a man and his family.

I am sure that there are current cases of a black man or woman defending themselves from white attackers. Does she want to repeal self-defense in those instances, too? Or does she want the blindfolded lady of justice to look at everything through her bigoted, racist eyes?
