It’s a bird, it’s a plane . . . No it’s Zimmer-man. As indestructible as Superman. As inscrutable as Batman. As full-blooded a patriot as Captain America!
President Barack Obama issued a long-awaited response Sunday afternoon to the acquittal of George Zimmerman Saturday evening, reminding Americans to temper “passions,” and that “we are a nation of laws and the jury has spoken.”
He added that Americans should “honor” the life of Trayvon Martin by committing to “stem the tide of gun violence,” and “ask ourselves if we are doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion in our communities.”
So Detroit, or more likely, the State of Michigan, is paying a “bankruptcy expert” to manage Detroit’s financial mess and the bankruptcy expert Emergency Manager hires his former law firm at $1000 per hour to do the work the Emergency Manager was hired to do. This should go over well with the natives. From CBS Detroit:
“Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr approved the fees totaling about $1.4 million, but what makes this even more controversial is that the law firm getting the money is Jones Day – that’s Orr’s former law firm. Oh, you want some more controversy? That $1.4 million is just for six weeks of work,” Langton said.
The report says the costs were associated with sophisticated restructuring advice, labor and pension analysis, and Chapter 9 planning. Orr has defended the expense, saying top lawyers are needed because of what’s at stake . . .
Orr is a bankruptcy expert hired in March by the state to fix Detroit’s finances . . .
According to the “sociologists” and race hucksters consulted by the New York Times, race should be considered in the Zimmerman trial except that Zimmerman’s race (hispanic) should not be considered because he is a “white hispanic” and just the son of a “Peruvian.”
And race should be considered in the trial except for considering Zimmerman’s state of mind in light of the overwhelming statistics showing that Trayvon Martin’s race commits violent crimes at a rate drastically disproportionate to its population percentage . . .
Gov. Cuomo’s middle of the night raid on New Yorkers’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms has claimed another victim. Cuomo’s so-called “SAFE Act” poses onerous restrictions on the manufacture, sale and possession of previously legal firearms and was passed on a phony “emergency” basis without public notice or debate. Though significant portions of the ill-advised and sloppily drafted legislation will eventually be struck down in court, it’s effects will be, in many cases, permanent. Lost jobs is one such case. Pennsylvania can add these manufacturing jobs to the the thousands lost by New York due to Cuomo’s fear of the anti-cracking protesters.
Business has been good for Rockland County-based Kahr Arms, so much so that it plans to expand with a new factory on more than 600 acres.
The trouble, at least for New York state: The gun manufacturer, currently based in Rockland County, is expanding across the border in Pennsylvania, and in the process will be moving its headquarters out of the Empire State. The reason, according to a corporate official, can be found in the swift passage last January of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s SAFE gun control law.
It wasn’t so much that the measure bans certain kinds of guns and magazines, the company said. Instead, it was the suddenness with which the law was passed — less than 24 hours after being released to the public — leaving Kahr’s executives to wonder what kind of unforeseen regulations or restrictions might lie ahead.
“One of our big concerns was, OK, the SAFE Act was passed in the middle of the night. You wake up the next morning and boom, that was it,” said Frank Harris, Kahr’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We just felt like, gee, if they can do this, what can they do next?
President Obama has made a thoughtful choice for Ambassador to South Africa. A hyper-partisan, Congo-born, Haitian-bred, Brooklyn-educated community organizer will surely bring diplomatic skills to the racially-charged atmosphere in South Africa.
“It’s constitutional. Bitches.” Patrick Gaspard, the Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee, tweeted the news Thursday. Continue reading
Why are Democrat policies nearly always focused on this or that group rather than the country at large?
It’s really very simple. Legislation and tax policies which provide benefits to all citizens yield fewer votes, political contributions and favors to Democrats than “targeted” proposals. The Democrat guiding principle is to divide us into groups, and then to threaten punishment to certain groups while offering rewards to others.
Despite the Democrats incessant bleating about “fairness,” unequal treatment of both groups and individuals is essential to Democrat electoral success. Graft, envy and anger are the keys to Democrat hope and change.
The sad truth is that Democrats need and promote racial and social division. Without homophobia, sexism and racism all you have left is personal responsibility. Democrats can’t “fix” that with your tax dollars and votes.
