Re: “US Limps Into Day Three of Government Shutdown

Sure Congress is acting selfishly, and the individual members in particular.
To preserve their jobs, they're voting for things they know amount to nothing and actually interfere with the running of our government.
Fine.
We will speak the language these Congressmen understand best: We'll vote 'em out, en masse.
If keeping their jobs has become paramount to actually doing it, they shouldn't have it in the first place.
We elected these folks to run our country -- first and foremost. Over and over they've refused to do so.
No problem.
We'll elect those who will.

Re: “Polls Confirm Racial Divide in Trayvon Martin Case

It is time that we look at the Trayvon Martin killing for what it is -- a criminal homicide, only incidental to race. One cannot draw a much different conclusion by listening to the cries for help heard in the recorded 911 calls.
Even without them, however, it seems improbable that a confident, stocky-build man, with a gun in his holster, would need to beg for help -- notwithstanding the claims of Zimmerman, his father and his brother. Our understanding of human nature and common sense tells us that such cries would come from someone who is severely threatened and acutely aware of his imminent death.
Any doubts of this are removed by merely listening to those multiple “help, help” pleas loud enough to be picked up during the 911calls. Aside from their heart-wrenching intensity, we also note that these cries go on for over a minute. Was Zimmerman telling Martin during that time that he was about to pull the trigger? Why else would Martin need to plead for help with such desperation?
If Zimmerman was threatening to shoot Martin in those two minutes before we hear the shot, what we have then is a cold blooded murder – and by one clever enough to now use our racial divide to get away with it. We should see through this tactic and not let him do so. Not only because such defense would further divide us, but also because an unrepentant criminal would get away with murder.
