Which brings up, does white Hispanic imply there is a black Hispanic? I’d bet if your liberal, half Caucasian and half Hispanic your just called Hispanic. White Hispanic is being used as the Saul Alinsky rule for ridicule against conservative white folks.
Van Jones however is a true conman. He puts on the smiley face all the time pretending to be just like the rest of us when he's really about as far left a commie as there is. No surprise DNC shill snuffulufagus has him on the show.
“I am hoping Romney shows the same degree of ruthlessness going after Obama that he has shown in the primaries.”
You and me both!
“If you think that those delegates, most of whom will be Romney delegates, are going to suddenly give the nomination to Santorum or Palin or Newt, you are living in a dream world.”
I think its pretty clear that the regime is fully invested in playing the race card whenever wherever,it just backfired on them this time.They had to demonize Zimmerman somehow. But it turned out to be too much of a stretch to go with black, brown and white Hispanics. Just does not fly.
I’ll Agree, it may be blasphemy here, but I’ll take Romney over Santorum, because Santorum doesn’t understand conservative economic solutions such as a flat tax(like the Republican budget, a progressive income tax disappointment), nor does his vote buying tripling the dependent child tax credit impress me.
Self defense laws, be they statutory or common law, work at a very individual level and look at conduct. It's the feds who bring up attitude with the hate crime baloney, but that's another story.
Usually, when the law of self defense is being twisted into a pretzel, it is a liberal doing the twisting, in order to win a single case. A close parallel to the Martin/Zimmerman saga, is the Bradley/Prosser saga in Wisconsin. Bradley is the physical aggressor, then she makes a false claim of "he choked me" when Prosser defended himself. Turn the tables at the outset (be the aggressor toward them) and they suddenly apply the law the correct way.
Funny how that works.
The Gingrich significance is the conservative argument gets exposure, otherwise it’s lost on Romney or Sainthuckabee.
Of course everyone here is committed to stopping Obama. But please don’t be so naive as to think that we know everything that there is to know about Romney.
Do you really think that the Democrats don’t already have a plan to go after Romney? We’ll find out as soon as he wraps up the nomination.
In the meantime, it would do you well not to stick your head in the sand and pretend that this is going to be a cakewalk.
Unfortunately, it's not a case of idiocy - it's deliberate calculation and strategy. The Left has always understood the power of the entertainment media to shape people's attitudes and the culture. The deconstruction and rewriting of history is a fundamental component of their "creativity" and "art".
Conservatives are wrong to laugh at or dismiss this stuff because no matter how inaccurate, distorted or dishonest their product may be, once it's out there it infects and metastasizes throughout the cultural consciousness. Despite what you or I think, people watch it, and they believe it. They'll rent the DVDs, it will be mentioned in articles and discussed on television, cited by "experts" and pundits and recycled on cable and satellite networks.
Just like Tom Hanks' recent HBO smear of Sarah Palin, "Game Change", they don't really care who sees them or expect these things to be commercial successes. It's about planting the progressive flag and laying first claim to an issue in order to define it, or to deconstruct and rewrite it if it's something from past history.
Hanks is a particular disappointment. I want to like him and I've enjoyed many of his movies, yet his use of his talent to further an agenda that I know is evil and destructive puts him right in there with Leni Riefenstahl. He truly exemplifies the concept of "useful idiot" (I honestly don't believe he understands the issues sufficiently to merit the "fellow traveler" designation). In his case it really is "stupid is as stupid does".
I would almost bet that Obama had people at DOJ or on his campaign combing through arrest records, looking for a situation where a white guy shot a black and wasn’t charged. (Remember, this happened over a month ago.)
So, the researchers finally came up with Zimmerman. Yay! Father a Republican! Sounds Jewish to us! Two-fer!
So, they gin up all of the race hatred, call in their buds from the NAACP, unions, and Black Muslims.
And THEN, when it was too late, they discover he is Hispanic and a democrat, who tutored black kids and has black friends.
Well, too bad for George. They will simply portray him as what they thought he was (I expect a story about how he was intending to convert to Judaism any day now).
However, all this is doing is making a whole lot of people angry, and after looking at Sharpton and Jackson and their mob, most of them are going to conclude that they way to get them all to shut up is to vote against Obama.
The caucuses were also stacked with many volunteer delegates for Ron Paul, imagine them giving Ron Paul the Republican nomination?
In that case I will know that the Mayans were right after all.
There will be enough support you vote won’t matter so you have my permission to sit out, but do consider your local candidates may need some support.
Take away emotional responses, BS, lies, distortions and you have no democrat party.
If I gave you that impression I am truly sorry and did a miserable job of conveying our/my dilemma.
IMHO, for me,I have the job of helping a candidate I am harfly in love with,who was not my first, second or third choice,get elected for the good of the country.That's my perspective on getting Mitt elected.
In my situation I have children,relatives, friends who have offspring who will be stuck with the horrible residue of four years of obamville.
My worst nightmare is to see them stuck with yet another four years that the country probably cannot survive.
Below the dashed lines some of the text of an email sent out by an influential local politico here in Sussex County.
From the hundreds of e-mails that I received concerning the Sussex County Sheriff’s issue—there were two that I decided to forward—one from local blogger Pat Fish (R) who supports the Sheriff’s position and believes he should have arrest powers as per the Delaware constitution and the other is from Sussex County Council Woman Joan Deaver(D) who voted to strip the Sheriff of any Constitutional powers he might have and is opposed to the Sheriff having arrest powers-touting two Attorney General opinions.. Deaver who is up for re-election in 2012 enclosed some cartoons with her e-mail. Both communications are below for your review. Your comments are welcome and subject to being forwarded.

I agree. The point I was trying to make, though, was that self defense is one of the few areas of law that at bottom, really isn't political. That the DEMs use it as a political argument (Trayvon's death is related to "stand your ground") is typical - but any individual one of them would be very quick to defend the right to use self defense, if they were under physical attack.
As them if they promise not to react to an attack. If they say yes, slap them across the face, HARD.
And dear Lord you should have seen the one from the elected council woman. Y’all will fall over with the shock of it.
No clues these people.
Good catch. Ironically most of the crime that goes on is going the other way. Its black on black, black on Hispanic or black on white. “White Hispanic” on black is apparently rare.
I agree with you.
