Lesson Learned - Don't live in Gated Communities

They have always represented "Exclusion and Elitism" and now thanks to George Zimmerman "Its Open Season on your Children"

These events are going to be repeated over and over again as long small groups of "Gun Toting Bigots" have the ability to form a legally binding "Homeowners Association" for the express purpose of oppressing, and even murdering your children. What is even more worrisome is they can charge you fees for the privilege of having your children murdered.

Can the Homeowners Association be held legally liable for Martin's death. One would hope so. If not so to extract justice but rather prevent future incidence of senseless homicides.

And they thought "Fracking Gas" would benifit Americans - LOL

You Stupid Americans

The precious Fracking Gas they are polluting your air and water for is for EXPORT.

Corporations know the added pressure to domestic supplies will drive electrical energy prices higher as demands to export Unlimited, Untaxed amounts of LNG to lucrative overseas markets once again squeezes the American Working Class dry


Have you changed what you say on internet because of NSA Surveillance

This is not a debate over the type of data being collected

I just what to know from DU'ers has the current revelations of NSA surveillance changed the context of your internet posting or personal phone calls

The difference between a Freeper and an Obama Apologist cheerleading Wiretap programs

What makes it right when “Our Guy” does it.

We’ve known these programs existed for at least a decade even thou Intelligence organizations insisted they only monitored calls originating “Outside US Borders” and we even had discussions here on DU asking why are Bush, Cheney not in jail for their illegal activities.

Now here we are content with abolishing of the 4th Amendment rights and you know dam good and well the minute Wall St’s Wealthy Elite feel the slightest bit uncomfortable with all these “Citizens” walking around with firearms they will have their “Puppet in Office” abolish are 2nd Amendment Rights

I could go on for pages with all the reasons why our lapse of ethical standards is a fatal error.

Rather I’ll leave you with this. In the not so distant past – June 6th 1944, 100s of 1000s of Americans were prepared and willing to freely accepted their fate, knowing full well casualty estimates as high as 20% were expected. They did this to defend the American way of life and the Freedoms it represented. So sad here we are willing to trade in the sacrifice they made for the right to buy some cheap Bling made in China down at the mall

Senator Feinstein sells out Americans AGAIN

She is going to pull out all the stops and present us with props and charts and lie like a Collen Powell in front of the UN


One Walmart's Low Wages Could Cost Taxpayers $900,000 Per Year, House Dems Find

One Walmart's Low Wages Could Cost Taxpayers $900,000 Per Year, House Dems Find

Walmart wages are so low that many of its workers rely on food stamps and other government aid programs to fulfill their basic needs, a reality that could cost taxpayers as much as $900,000 at just one Walmart Supercenter in Wisconsin, according to a study released by Congressional Democrats on Thursday.

Though the study assumes that most workers who qualify for the public assistance programs do take advantage of them, it injects a potent data point into a national debate about the minimum wage at a time when many Walmart and fast food workers are mounting strikes in pursuit of higher wages.

The study uses Medicaid data released in Wisconsin to piece together the annual cost to taxpayers for providing a host of social safety net programs, including food stamps and publicly subsidized health care, to workers at one Supercenter in the state.

According to the report, Walmart had more workers enrolled in the state’s public health care program in the last quarter of last year than any other employer, with 3,216 people enrolled. When the dependents of those workers were factored in, the number of enrollees came to 9,207.


18 yr old Male with 14 yr old female - DU would be clamoring for jail time

This whole conversation of proper age equations and "They attended High school together" VERY disingenous and hypocritical.

She kept the girl out over night without her parents permission. If it was a18 yr old male doing the same thing the DA would be considering kidnap charges and no one would campaign on his behalf across the internet or accusing the parents of bias.

Grover Norquist and radical Islam- don't ever forget who Grover REALLY is

Grover Norquist and radical Islam

The association between Grover Norquist and Islamists appears to have started about five years ago, in 1998, when he became the founding chairman of an organization called the Islamic Free Market Institute, better known as the Islamic Institute. The Institute's stated purpose was to cultivate Muslim-Americans and Arab-Americans whose attachment to conservative family values and capitalism made them potential allies for the Republican Party in advance of the 2000 presidential election. . . .

Unfortunately, some associated with the Islamic Institute evidently had another agenda. Abdurahman Alamoudi, for one, a self-described "supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah," the prime-mover behind the American Muslim Council (AMC) and a number of other U.S.-based Islamist-sympathizing/supporting organizations, saw in the Islamic Institute a golden opportunity to hedge his bets.


The founding director of Grover Norquist's Islamic Institute, Khaled Saffuri, is a Muslim Palestinian by birth. Prior to joining Alamoudi's group (where he served for almost three years), Saffuri was active in Muslim-support operations in Bosnia, a hot-bed for Islamic radicals from Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere anxious to establish a beachhead on the continent of Europe. In recent years, he has acknowledged personally supporting the families of suicide bombers - even though, in public settings, he strenuously denies having done so. He denounced President Bush for shutting down the Holy Land Foundation, a Saudi charity that the U.S. government determined was funneling American Muslims' donations to terrorist organizations overseas. . . .


Full House and Senate worked into the night 24/7 to save Big Banks

Surely we remember the Bank Bailout

But now when clearly the Working Class will suffer the brunt of the damage brought on by their inaction, they resort to games and political posturing.

Does bring to light with blinding accuracy who the Real Masters of Washington are

Should only Corporations have Assault Weapons

As we enter into a new era of gun control in America I want all of us to ask ourselves this question

I truly believe a new Assault Weapons ban is all but guaranteed in the next session but as usual the devil will be in the details. I also truly believe the Founding Fathers wanted to guarantee the Rights of every citizen to bear arms given the abuses suffered by the people of Europe at the hands of the Land Barons

Do we really want an America where only the corporations can hire Security Contractors who posses Semi and Fully Automatic Assault Weapons - Think Blackwater Security during the Katrina Hurricane

Personally I don't even want Law Enforcement to have weapons the average citizen can not have - including drones
