The Red Carpet

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

During his pro union visit perhaps our fearless leader may want to visit some of Chattanooga's finer neighborhoods where so many young men who could have been him when he was younger or looked like his son if he had one could "BENNETTFIT" from his profound words of wisdom. So many Trayvon Martin's, and no one really seems to care. How sad????

Please Teabaggers don't embarrass us on national tv. PLEASE SHOW SOME RESPECT! None of you had any problem bowing down to Bush and company while that GOP disaster was destroying the economy of not only the US but the entire world. You are just a bunch of racists who just cannot accept a black man for President...keep it real. Iam really enjoying this.

Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney has been quoted saying;

"President Obama has presided over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression, so a visit to a right-to-work state like Tennessee to learn a thing or two in how to get things done should be expected."

The unwarranted and highly misplaced arrogance in that statement is very hard to overlook.

"Thanks to Republicans, we've cut taxes, balanced our budget, and have the lowest debt of any state in the union."

The facts are that Tennessee ranks 18th in terms of State National Product, it is the 17th most populous state, and 12 states have lower debt figures.

Since 2004, Tennessee has went from $23 billion in public debt to $39 billion.

Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman Tony Sanders has been quoted saying;

"There's no doubt, and it doesn't surprise me, that a sitting president whose economic policies who haven't really worked at all would be coming to a city like Chattanooga, where leaders like Senators Corker and Alexander, Governor Haslam and Congressman Fleischmann have developed an economic dynamic that is the shining star of the country."

While 6,000 net new jobs over the past two years is a good start, the facts do not show Tennessee to be a shining star as an economic dynasty.

The current unemployment rate for Hamilton County is still 8.2% and Tennessee's unemployment rate is still 8.5%.

41 states have lower unemployment rates than Tennessee. The states with higher unemployment?

Nevada has 9.6%, Illinois has 9.2%, Mississippi has 9.0%, Rhode Island has 8.9%, North Carolina has 8.8%, New Jersey and Michigan are tied at 8.7%, and Georgia has 8.6%

So while the Republicans are tooting their horns that the President is coming here to observe how to get things done, their boasting and chest thumping is a dump truck load of horse squeeze.

Plainly-without-a-clue:

Poor people have been voting for leveling of the playing field, for less discrimination in hiring, voting rights, a living wage, inner city jobs programs, better housing for the poor, affordable health care, an equitable justice system, on and on - and it has always been the republican greed machine that has driven these programs into the ground or thwarted them at every turn.

"Talking about ugliness, lies and venom, Bennett uses the highly the suggestive tea bag in his 'cartoons' when he attacks the Tea Party. It would be less offensive to use a donkey's anus as the face of Barack Obama." - JR

This comment from JR is indicative of the way his head is buried so deeply up his anus that he's unable to take note of his surroundings and see what really goes on in the world. Otherwise he would have taken note of the fact that many Tea Party members actually wear tea bags dangling from their hats, and proudly so. Bennett is being no more "ugly" or "suggestive" than any cartoonist would be in caricaturing a member of the Tea Party. While the term "teabagger" is considered by some to be derogatory and ugly, drawing a cartoon of a Tea Party person with tea bags hanging from his hat is nothing more than an accurate depiction of many Tea Party people.

Pull your head out, JR. Oh, never mind. I know it's buried so deep where the sun don't shine you can't hear what I'm saying anyway.

Live from ALPOLAND!! Just In. Breaking News!!!!

You forgot to tell all the nice people how Tennessee sucks more cash per resident from the federal government than any other state.

You are correct regarding the comment made by the Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney though. We know Obama isn't coming to see how southern labor works and is the cure for the future. You and I know it is a push for Unions and organized Labor. Nothing more! If you go please be sure to drive a VW from your car lot. Not the Electra Deuce & 1/4. Nothing I like better than German cars made in the good ole USA! Make Chattanoogan's proud!

dimlight keeper. I hope you realize that the damage done by this administration demanding a guilty verdict for the Zimmerman trial, holding up their belief for the 13% instead of all citizens has made many Americans rethink their support for minorities and civil rights demands.

His visit is just another waste of jet fuel adding to the growing environmental greenhouse gas problem the world is facing and he preaches about. Perhaps he should lead by example? Just like his trip last week to ramble on for over an hour saying absolutely nothing. I think all his hot air during the speech actually caused more of an environmental disaster than both trips on AF1 combined.

I did get a chuckle about you wanting to have an "Intelligent Conversation" though. Thanks for the laugh!

Tuesday will simply be another day for many locals. A mortal will come and go oblivious to the majority of the population. It should be a big deal but the simple fact that his numerous rambling speeches and overexposure has left our president completely irrelevant. The rest of the world views him in the same manner. He is spent. Out of gas. Has no political game left. If you care to bow and pay homage that's none of my business. Get on your knees if you like. Oh look honey, It's Wednesday already.

Criticism is fine. Billowing fumes out of your exhaust manifold is different; which, like an old two cycle Detroit Diesel, you have a definite aptitude for.

In that same vein,

Your contention that: ”Barry is a communist and is using fascism as a tool to destabilize and piss off the masses in hopes that they will follow him down the road to communism.” Gets the blue ribbon today for superlative codswallop.

Well done.

Can you or can you not explain exactly how A) Obama has caused mass poverty, B) how you justify a comparison to Lenin, Karl Marx and Joseph Stalin?

You didn't even graduate from college. Just because you do people's taxes and manage a used car lot doesn't mean you're a CPA and business owner. You always try to be an activist for the workingman, but how does it feel to be charging 18% interest on the auto loans you sell? By the way, no one would have thought any less of you if you told the truth. You don't make yourself look any better by lying about who you are. Being a blowhard is one thing, but a liar is another.

Obama is coming to town to tell us how he is rotating his focus back to the economy and jobs ... for the 17th time. People didn’t buy it the first 16 times and their just yawning at this one. The Democrats are in bad shape for the 2014 elections but this lame road trip is all that Obama can come up with.

Let’s see what the people at Politico think of The Democrats’ chances:

By: Glenn Thrush

Barack Obama has spent well over $1 billion on his political campaigns, but it’s the $20 to $30 million Democrats didn’t shell out three years ago that is costing the White House as he slogs through the first six months of his second term.

The GOP’s wildly successful, low-key, and stunningly cheap campaign to seize state capitals in 2010 has come back to haunt Obama and his fellow Democrats. It’s now clear that the party’s loss of 20 state legislative chambers and critical Midwestern governor’s seats represents an ongoing threat every bit as dangerous as the more-publicized Republican take-back of the House that same year.

For that seed money, Republicans secured an historic return, cementing a ten-year grip on the House of Representatives and a score of state houses, and erasing the remaining smudges of blue in red states.

It might be the greatest opportunity cost of the Obama Era in terms of sheer damage to Democrats, a gift that keeps giving to the Republicans in the form of GOP-dominated redistricting and a barrage of state actions that challenge Obama’s core agenda on health care, civil rights and abortion.

Those consequences are reshaping policy debates all over the country and forcing Democrats to play defense, wreaking particular havoc with White House implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

But when it comes to redistricting, the damage has already been done. The next chance Democrats have to fight back comes in 2020, seven long years away.

“It’s just one of those things Republicans have always done better than Democrats,” said Michael McDonald, a politics professor at George Mason who has served as a redistricting consultant in Virginia and New Jersey.

“At the presidential level ,Democrats are able to match up with Republicans. At the state level, where spending has a more potent effect, they are less competitive… They’ve lost control of those elections and now they are at the whim of all these [conservative] superpacs.” . The effort, Pro Publica estimated, allowed Republican mapmakers to redraw the lines in “four times as many Congressional districts as Democrats,” consolidating the gains of the 2010 congressional elections, and creating the firewall of safe GOP seats that has so bedeviled Obama.

After his speech in Galesburg, Illinois, President Obama was asked if he really had the legal authority to unilaterally delay the employer mandate in Obamacare.

New York Times’ Jackie Calmes asked - “People questioned your legal and constitutional authority to do that unilaterally — to delay the employer mandate. Did you consult with your lawyer?”

Obama exclaimed - “I don’t need no stinkin’ lawyers!”

Calmes sputtered - “No, but specifically ”

Obama yelled - "Who do you think you’re talking to?!? ... I’m the HMF constitutional lawyer dog when it comes to what’s legal and constitutional .... Holmes!!!"

Jesse, Sir, it's not about exposing someone's name. I haven't done that, nor would I. It's about confronting the lies and facade that Alprova embellishes himself in, thinking that claiming to be a CPA and business owner gives him some type of superior credibility. I'll be straight up, I'm just a plain middle class average Joe. He lives to expose the truth, yet his own life is a lie. Just a few weeks ago he made it a point to call someone else on here a liar because he found inconsistencies in where they claimed to work. He even took the time to post all the places they claimed to work. Notice how his response to my post was about trying to figure out who on this forum was the one who posted that, and then called me a liberal hater and pathetic. His focus is on everyone else and not his own lies. He is redirecting the issue. He will not take any personal responsibility for his lies, but instead try to figure out how to turn it around.

Sorry Darwin but the original comment stands correct. "Berry" has little to no character or scruples.

Another suggestion for "Berry O's" visit would be to tour the Crystal Springs Print Works in Chickamauga. He should bring "Little Billie Clinton" and all the members of Congress at the time, Republican controlled, who voted to give China, {Corporate America} free trading status along to view in person how well this American jobs plan has succeeded? 106 years in business and the China Syndrome did what the competition couldn't in just 10 years. There are many more examples of this phenomenon if you will, that exist in our neighboring states and across this great nation. Slave labor and human rights violations simply don't matter when there is money to be made. We all enjoy what they claim are lower prices as a result but eliminating jobs for Americans makes it hard for the unemployed to shop and enjoy the benefit. We already see the Chinese people demanding something similar to the American way of life. Who could blame them. Japan economically evolved the same way and when the Chinese government stops infusing cash to prop up the ruse and citizens are properly compensated for their labor we will realize the price of doing business abroad is greater than what we Americans could have been producing it for ourselves. It won't be long. And speaking of environmental disasters, we only need to look at China and what they have destroyed in a 10 year period. Water & air are in very short supply in their country. At least something that is breathable or drinkable. Until then these jobs will be overseas and in adjoining countries but our financial ability to continue providing the entitlements promised to Americans will dwindle and where will this leave our country and it's citizens?

Perhaps Berry O will address the Amazon sales tax fiasco along with all the other internet sales companies. Local retailers, big and small are screaming at the top of their lungs "FOUL" but no one is listening. Yes it is a state problem but we see this president butting into state issues quite often but my money is on the fact he will not say a word about the issue. This cash loss to local and state economies, you & me, is significant and such money is used to fund schools, fire & police protection and so on. Yes we save buying online avoiding sales tax but who are we cheating? Only ourselves and our neighbors all the while corporate distribution centers such as Amazon laugh & play the day away. SUCKERS!!! Or as the eloquent CHET would say, HA HA HA!!! Chet remember, it is spelled WHOOZE YO DADDIE! So please tell us. I find you so eloquent and fascinating. Perhaps a member of that royal clan we hear so much about?

How many wars has Obama started? How many servicemen, civilians has Obama killed and how many countries have been bombed and occupied under Obama. Bush started this insanity. I hope Obama doesn't listen to the neo-con warhawks and start another disaster in Syria. But with the military/corporate system of government, with the supporters of foreign incursions like Corker, Alexander, and others whose portfolios increase with needless military actions, it may be inevitable.

I'm no fan of politicians, republican or democrat, but had Mush-Mouth John McCain been elected we'd be in more wars. McCain has serious mental issues whose answer is always a military action. He's certifiably crazy and makes GW Bush look like a Rhodes scholar and master statesman (which he's certainly not).

In truth, Bush did start the decline and financial failures by his stupidity and Dick Cheney's hand up his ass. Had the republicanistas not ran Crazy McCain and Sarah Goofball Palin, Obama might not have been elected. Blame the republicans for Obama's win, not Obama.

But there's been worse presidents than Obama. The death-knell began September 12, 2001.

By the way Ms. tu quo_quw/Jt6gR3hM/workinjay, I got a phone call from a relative of mine who told me that a young female driving a 90ish black Chevrolet pickup truck pulled right up behind their cars parked by the house about three days ago. He cracked the door and the woman whom he had never seen before, waved at my relative and then backed out of the driveway and left.

Was it you?

If so, I want you to be aware that the license plate was caught on camera and I now have the disk in my possession for future reference.

It may not have been you, but if it was, you were about an inch from staring down a 12 gauge that he keeps by the front door.

People wander all the time back in those woods, and they are all guilty of trespassing when they do because the property is well posted, but no one has ever been stupid enough to pull right up to the front door before.

You want to know about me? You know the phone number. Call me, and we'll meet face to face somewhere very public and you can play 20 questions.

And as always, remember that I'm not hiding behind a computer.

How many of you agree with these comments?

The reaction on social media hasn't been so tame. News of the president's visit sparked scores of outraged comments.

"When I was a kid President Reagan came to town and gave a speech outside. Our teacher was able to take our entire class to see him. I remember being riveted to his words. ... But we respected him fully, knew we were in the presence of greatness. ... I would never take my child to see this president. ... I would go out of my way for him not to see him!" wrote Kimberly Turner on Facebook.

"When a man like Obama, who has caused so much divisiveness, destruction of religious liberties, an economy that is still a complete disaster, and a growing list of scandals to a country I love -- then yeah, he sucks. ... He should stay in Washington and start doing some real work instead of coming to Chattanooga and his countless other propaganda stops," wrote Matt McLelland on Facebook.

Some say this type of social media outburst is an embarrassment to the city.

I don't care a whit Ms. Troll about any words posted into this forum. Words come and words go. But when a stranger has the audacity to drive up to the front door of one of my relatives, that's crossing a line that could get someone hurt or killed.

MAKING LIFE'S decisions in a biased fashion OR based totally on acceptance of lies?? Here is the problem; if the enemies of President Obama want to make their judgments and decisions on the proven lies that they are believing in and then continue trying to convince the other voters to follow their false beliefs, do not expect this to happen. President Obama won his second term November, 2012. Has anyone noticed that there appears to be a group of people who apparently want to take the path of making their life's decisions in a biased fashion, based totally on their acceptance of lies, misinformation, incomplete misleading information, and untruths?

The 2007 DEEP RECESSION occurred before President Obama was elected to his first term. To keep this Republic from going into another great depression as the one in 1929, there were choices and policies that had to be made by President Obama.

**North Georgia Man Beaten By Mob On Procession Route As Obama Passes By""

CHATTANOOGA -- Chattanooga police are looking for suspects in the beating of a Northwest Georgia man that occurred shortly after the President's motorcade passed by on Tuesday.

Witnesses to the melee stated that the attack was spawned when the victim of the beating was seen extending his middle finger on both hands up in the air as President Obama's limousine was passing.

"It was crazy," said Sandra Moore, who witnessed the beating. "He was shouting, cussing and carrying on something fierce as the line of vehicles was coming down the street. A bunch of people told him to shut up and he started cussing them, callin' them fascists, liberals and such. By then the President was coming right on by us, and he started flipping birds. About six men, both black and white started beating the man until he was just layin' there."

Witnesses stated that the men appeared to be in their 20's to early 30's, but none of those witnesses were unable to provide more information to the police.

The man, whose name has not been released, was airlifted to Erlanger by helicopter, due to the seriousness of his injuries. His condition is not known.

"He shouldn't have been disrespectin' the President or anyone else," witness Martin Thornton stated. "He got what he deserved."

Although an investigation has been launched, according to a Chattanooga police spokesman who declined any further comment, he stated, "We're looking into it, but there isn't much to go on at the moment."

SBrauer said... To lightkeeper. When are you guys going to realize that it's NOT to color of the guy's skin, ( although I never heard him say "I'm 1/2 white' only 'I'm 1/2 black')


That's because he's not 1/2 white'/1/2 black. He's black, because his physical characteristics define him as black and according to America's standards on race. That dates back centuries. He didn't create that standard. It was created and defined by powerful white men a very long time ago. The one drop rule still stands to this day, albeit overtly___even if his skin was light enough to pass for white, his physical negroid-like features would be a dead give away. There are members of the black community with two black parents whose physical appearance look more 1/2 white/1/2 black than the president.

Over the years people have learned to read and write think for themselves and have risen up from the times when the Rulers, with the Churches' help wanted to keep the masses under their "thumbs" for treating them as they pleased, taking all of their rights away, depressing them with fear.
There apparently continues to be the desire from the Republicans to live in those times again because of their desires and insisting that the Governments get out of the way for letting it happen. Do you think these are phony comments?

Because I don't live there. They went to the wrong address. It's a totally private road with no numbers to identify the houses. The mailboxes for everyone are up on the main road.

"Maybe the phantom driver took a wrong turn and was simply turning around in your sister's driveway."

Too coincidental and suspicious to write off as a wrong turn. People who mistakenly find their way back there will pull into the driveway and turn around.

She pulled right up in the middle of the YARD behind a vehicle that was parked next to the house. When my relative cracked the door to see who it was, she waved while fiddling with her cell phone and then backed out and went up the hill.

Who makes a mistake by pulling into someone's yard about 100 feet?

"I didn't give your name to him, her, or it. Nada, none, no one. Maybe you ARE going off the deep end."

Do you deny the posted exchange that I quoted between the two of you that occurred on the 17th of July?

It sure doesn't appear that you gave her your email address to exchange a cake recipe. I want to believe you, but again, the coincidences and the timing is hard to overlook.

Like I wrote earlier. What's done is done. It doesn't matter. I doubt she is dangerous, but who knows these days?

If it was her, she certainly was brazen enough to drive up to the front door on private property where she had to know that she was not welcome.

Thank you for clearing that up.

The website you saw is my total creation. I maintain it 100%. Of course I sell used cars. When have I denied that I did?

In addition to the dealership, I still have clients that I serve in my CPA practice. You're not going to find an ounce of proof for or against it. That business has been totally private for 30 years. I have never needed to advertise or to list my services in a phonebook. I had all the business I have ever wanted through the best advertisement possible...word of mouth.

I haven't done a tax return for any member of the public, ever. That's not what I specialize in. I do investment audits and benefit plan administration. The profits in that market are obscene and limitless, but I am winding down that business due to my health issues and because I am totally bored with it.

I'm done with explaining or clarifying a thing to you. Feel free to believe whatever you wish and post whatever sends a thrill up your leg.

Didn’t some poster cast aspersions on Tennessee’s state debt?

A recent study shows Tennessee's debt ratio is the lowest in the nation.

The state comptroller's office said in a release this week that the study was conducted by New York-based Fitch Ratings, one of the country's top bond rating agencies.

The agency analyzed debt ratios in all 50 states and concluded that Tennessee's ratio is the lowest.

It uses a metric that is calculated by combining the state's net tax-supported debt and unfunded pension liabilities then measuring them against the state's personal income level.

Tennessee's ratio of debt and pension liabilities to personal income was 1.8 percent.

According to the study, no other state had a ratio below 2.2 percent and four states had ratios above 20 percent.

Fitch uses the debt ratios when evaluating states' credit ratings.

Not sure if you are referring to me or not I don't believe I posted anything on this thread about the debt. The United States is also doing better than Greece. Would you say we are fine with nearly 17 trillion in debt? The problem is the debt is heading in the wrong direction. Up to about 6 years ago Hamilton county was heading in the right direction then it spikes upward. TN was relatively flat up to about 6 years ago also then it turns upward at the tune of additional 1.1 billion dollars. This debt as taken place since most of these mega deals have been in place. And what did we get for it, higher unemployment than the national rate. I just don't think what Washington and Tn are doing is working.

Every state has different requirements. What you say is absolutely true, if you are registered in Georgia. Tennessee allows firms to be registered under the firm name.

If you had access to my license number, you would then be able to go to CPA Certify or Tennessee's Department of Commerce and Insurance and verify my current status complete with the individual person(s) holding individual CPA certs.

I don't know whether alprova is a CPA or not but there are penalties for someone holding their self out as a CPA when they are not CPA. In TN you can not even advertise yourself as an accountant unless you are a CPA.

Jesse, Alprova is bringing that avatar upon himself. It is quite fitting though. All he had to do was admit his lies.

Also, all you need is a last name to verify license. If you go to http://www.tn.gov/regboards/tnsba/ which is the TN Board of Accountancy, and click on Tennessee CPA License Search, just type in the last name.

Al needs a good going over for his tendency to make wild accusations or dig into other posters private lives and taunt them with what he finds. Let's not do the same. He revealed himself by his own ignorance and that broke the dam so we could shame him for how he behaved. But let's leave it at that for now and not dig into and reveal his private affairs any more than we have to.

I honestly don't know his name or care and I won't pursue him into his private life beyond this even though I could access it if I wanted. However he is a arrogant blow hard and I will attack him with all the force I can muster for things he posts here.

I haven't had my complete say on what he has accused me of but he and I are clear for now on his personal life.

You missed the fact that if it is a firm, that you need the firm name. "Firm or Last Name"

When you put in the firm name, then all is revealed.

You people are sick!! What you are trying to do by attempting to "out" someone on this forum is nothing short of harassment. Do you think if you "out" someone's personal information it will make you seem more TRUTHFUL OR GIVE MORE WEIGHT TO SOME OF YOUR DUMAZZ POSTS? Those who seek to use several different posting names, is pretty ridiculous. You just aren't that smart. Everyone has a certain style or a certain way of using words that quickly becomes an identifier of sort. If you have written anything with consistency that style is going to show whether you believe it or not. Look at J.K. Rowling (the Harry Potter Author for those who don't read much)It didn't take very long for her to be outed the other week with her latest novel even though she used a completely different name and GENDER.

Give it up those who are using more than one identity on this forum. It doesn't make you any smarter and it certainly doesn't give your posts anymore esteem than anyone else's. Your petty attempts to "out" someone for expressing a viewpoint that is different from yours only shows how weak your arguments are when you have to resort to threats of outing and lies about someone's identity.

You are exactly right that your personal life is unimportant at this point since you have already ignorantly exposed yourself and handed your opponents the tool to prove your B.S. existence. But your hands are not clean in that you indulge in attacks on the personal lives of other posters and make wild accusations about their activities. You’ve brought most of this on yourself so quit whining.

Let me give you a couple of bits of advice. #1 - Restrict your attacks to what is posted here and stay out of other posters lives. #2 - You claim to have pictures of someone you claim is harassing you but be careful how you deal with that, if it is true (which I doubt). I can guarantee that it is not me so I care nothing about your claims to use them but just as before with PT be sure of your actions and what repercussions may come to you due to such actions.

If you don’t accept #2 then I will repeat from before “pull the trigger” if you have a pair.

You have alluded to this before and appear to hold yourself out as a person that is well versed in that form. Why no list of posters that are using multiple identifiers? Of course there is little chance that such a list could be proved or disproved but it would give all of us a good laugh as to your attempt.

I don’t know if it’s a failing on my part but I don’t have a clue about that matter and care about it very little. I never pay attention to style as I am only concerned by the content and I guess it’s just what a person values as to “form over substance” in their lives.

Al, you hit the nail on the head. Especially in that last observation. These people are without scruples, no compassion, no empathy until they're hit with a personal tragedy. They don't actually believe in that all powerful deity they love to quote. They pimp him/her to be used as their personal entitlement. They're also the first to turn on that deity they claim to worship when they don't get their way or tragedy strikes. They accused him/her of abandoning them. I remember one in particular who went into a psychotic rage against that powerful force when they most all their material wealth.

Promethazine with codeine, consumed in such large amounts as is popular with such southern rappers as lil wayne, slim thug, and Big Moe, produces an opiate-like high that is potentiated by the Promethazine. Promethazine by itself will not produce a high. The beverage must be sipped slowly, and not guzzled, in order to avoid unconciousness and/or life threatening overdose.

And Zimmerman was no choirboy either, but you rightwingnut so-called Christian conservatives aren't attacking him and dragging his name through the mud. Neither was Zimmerman that chubby, Pillsbury doughboy image seen in the courtroom. On the night Zimmerman stalked Martin and put a bullet in his chest (actually the funeral home who received Martins remains originally said it appeared he'd been shot in the back of the head-but that's been downplayed). Zimmerman was a much more toned figure, after working out in preparation to possibly become a Sanford police cop (gawd forbid) than the chubby little innocent looking thing in the courtroom. But you're not tired of that false image, are you?

  • I'm tired of the conservative media portraying him as a drug dealing gangster..... He did drugs (big deal), studied fighting styles, wanted to be a gangster, his mother sent him to Sanford cause she didn't know what else to do with him,*

So he went to stay with his father. Big deal. So do many young men, growing up, finding their way and sometimes acting out. That's all a part of growing up. Would you feel the same if Martin was a white kid who was sent to spend time with his father for a while? I don't think so.

  • and was just as at fault as Zimmerman.*

Then you also believe any innocent person who is stalked by a stranger and murdered is at fault. Especially if they put up a fight to defend themselves? That would include most and any victim of a serial killer, rapist, child predator who was murdered in the process of being raped, brutally murdered, at times dismembered at fault for their own death. Wow! Does that "god" of yours actually teach that?

  • forRobittussin or codine, arizona watermelon punch, and skittles..... google it.*

That's pure speculation. I like skittles candy. I also like Arizona ice-tea. That doesn't mean I buy them to get high.

the kid had a liver of a 20 yr drunk in the autopsy.

Please show the proof. Not that it matters what his liver looked like. For sure, with Zimmerman being ordered by the court to take a class on alcoholism, which indicates he was drinking along with those powerful medications he was taking (Adderall was said to be one/ Temazepam the other another--some pretty powerful meds, dangerous too. Especially when consumed with alcohol).

forget the other No compassion? He would have been one of the 30% visiting a jail cell eventually and living on tax dollars...

You mean Zimmerman, don't you? Arrested in 2005 for domestic violence. Zimmerman who was fired from his security job after tossing a woman so severely that her ankle was broken? Zimmerman was the one who was a train wreck waiting to happen.

That's because Martin's murder really was someone else fault. Zimmerman got away with murder in this world, but he won't escape accountability and he will have to one day face his demons. The real tragedy is that people like you, filled with so much hate, actually co-exist in this world. You arrogantly walk through life seemingly without a care and with a lack of compassion. Then one day you hit a brick wall and it all comes tumbling down around you, and you wonder why this is all happening to you, and for generations to come you will never know true peace and you won't even think to connect the dots to another place in time, when you at least had the opportunity to show some sense of character, compassion and a moral compass, but fail to do so.

Or it could indicate, Martin didn't have the hoodie up covering his head after all? Or he'd removed it to ask Zimmerman why are you following me? See there are all kinds of possibilities.

KI said....."And white kids from suburbia and wealthy class America are dying like flies from heroin overdose. Where are your concerns for those white kids? Don't they matter? Or are you so obsessed with beating and finding something, anything on a dead barely 17 year old black male, that you can't see what's happening in your own world? Remember the Texas Heroin Massacre? Where wealthy teens from Plano Texas were dropping dead like flies from heroin overdose in the mid 1990s? It didn't stop there either. Dianne Sawyer is doing a segment on middle-class/suburbia America teens and heroin use."

Those kids are no different than Trayvon..... Who cares that they are white or have money?


You're the one who continue to attempt to make a connection between a bag of skittles, can of Arizona ice tea must = to drug abuse on Martin's part, because Martin is black. I'm just pointing out the lunacy and obvious bigotry in your conclusion.

All kinds of possibilities? Or you could look at the facts? Just a suggestion.,....... He was shot in the chest. He attacked Zimmerman bc he was paranoid and he liked fighting. He was getting his next fix on lean after a toke. Truth hurts bc it became a discussion between left and right. Not right and wrong. And the media looks stupid for portraying Zimmerman as white.

The fact that GZ walked out of that courtroom an innocent man, that by the way is about to get very healthy in a financial sense, has given Ki a terminal case of the raw a^^ that is known as GZDS (George Zimmerman Derangement Syndrome).

TM was a junior thug that had not yet gained the street smarts to not jump a victim that will pop a pill in you. It's no more complicated than that. He was done in by his own ignorant a^^.

BTW - Did you hear about superman GZ rescuing a whole family from certain death and then riding off into the sunset.

The liver damage at autopsy was that trayvons liver was severely damaged. He had texts on his phone about lean, purple drank, and where to find codene. Forget that he is white , red, purple or black, he liked to use. Not bc he is black. That is the only excuse you have is racism? I report facts so I'm a racist? It happened. Google, bing, etc.... Try a search engine pal. Wake up. The poor son of Obama was at fault too..... Now I know the truth hurts, but you have to look at it from all sides.

You're apparently getting your information from my Facebook page, which I set up a few years ago and never completed. God only knows who YOU are and how you learned my name.

The fact is that I took many courses, including business, advanced mathematics, and accounting. I even have now, very defunct degrees in home heating and air conditioning, and collision body repair. Those aren't listed either.

I'll be sure to set up some time this week to complete the work on my Facebook page, which I haven't spent very much time on is quite some time.

You have been trying to claim that you are not the poster formerly known as tu_quoque and here you are claiming that I was addressing you.

My response was to Plain Truth. I specifically referred to "the other major troll who argues with everyone she dislikes, who has probably half a dozen forum identities."

Ooops!! I guess you'll have to create a new forum name now. You're busted.


Of course you’re right Al ... because as we all already know, except for you, all the other posters here are really one and the same with the infamous tu quoque. It’s just been one big con job on you but now you have caught me.

By the way Ms. tu quo_quw/Jt6gR3hM/workinjay, I got a phone call from a relative of mine who told me that a young female driving a 90ish black Chevrolet pickup truck pulled right up behind their cars parked by the house about three days ago. He cracked the door and the woman whom he had never seen before, waved at my relative and then backed out of the driveway and left.

Why did you relative call you? Do they know that anytime outsiders come calling there looking for you?

It may not have been you, but if it was, you were about an inch from staring down a 12 gauge that he keeps by the front door.

What would have been his defence for a threat to use deadly force by use of a firearm? Maybe “Stand Your Ground” because he was threatened by a young lady pulling her vehicle in his parking area? He better be sure he doesn’t shoot some minority child.

People wander all the time back in those woods, and they are all guilty of trespassing when they do because the property is well posted, but no one has ever been stupid enough to pull right up to the front door before.

So trespassing is a capital crime in your neck of the woods?

You want to know about me? You know the phone number. Call me, and we'll meet face to face somewhere very public and you can play 20 questions.

Why can’t we just stop by the car lot? Remember that every customer you have, that you don’t personally know, could be one of us spying on you.

And as always, remember that I'm not hiding behind a computer.

Of course you are as I have no Idea what your name is or how to contact you outside this web site other than wander around Rossville Georgia and ask everyone I encounter ...”Are you Alprova?”

Would you be so kind as to point to any quoting of the autopsy report that backs up this claim? That information certainly was not introduced in court, nor has any credible media outlet reported any such thing.

Then, point to any proof that the texts with any such references that you claim were on his cell phone as well.

"That is the only excuse you have is racism? I report facts so I'm a racist? It happened."

But of course. If anyone with a blog page writes it, it HAS to be true. Do you ever verify someone else's "facts" with credible evidence, like a copy of the autopsy report?

http://www.autopsyfiles.org/reports/Other/martin_trayvon_report.pdf

The Toxicology report only showed traces of marijuana in his system. That's it.

"Google, bing, etc.... Try a search engine pal. Wake up."

Do you know how to cut and paste a link? Back up your claim!!

Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as "Lean," also known in southern hip-hop culture as "Sizzurp" and "Purple Drank." Lean consists of three basic ingredients -- codeine, a soft drink, and candy. If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.

On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, "unow a connect for codien?" He tells the friend that "robitussin nd soda" could make "some fire ass lean." He says, "I had it before" and that he wants "to make some more." On the night of February 26, if Brandy had some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought the mixings for one "fire ass lean" cocktail.

Am I lying? Or misinformed? These are Facebook posts of Trayvon looking for lean ingredients..... Say it ain't so, mr Obama.... Wonder if the president is gonna weigh in on some court cases in downtown chatt for some of his lost sons while he is in town? You know, the ones that look like him.....

Trayvon Martin was walking home ALONE. He was not looking in people's homes, their cars or bothering anyone. George Zimmerman had no right whatsoever to even approach him. Zimmerman was not a police officer, he was just a self-appointed neighborhood bully with a gun looking to play cop. And nothing you or any other ignorant, racist, illiterate, wannabe bad ass, writes is going to change the fact: If Zimmerman had not approached Trayvon Martin he would not have gotten his azz kicked and Trayvon would still be alive. Trayvon is the one who should have had a gun to stand his ground with.

facypacypatsy:.....say it ain't so: Your point? It's already been determined that rightwingnut hate groups hacked into Martins social network accounts. That was exposed when it was realized the dates of many postings from his accounts continued long after he was dead.

But since you want to keep harping on the drug thing in an effort to use that as justification for Martin being murdered, then let's explore who the real hardcore drug users are in America:

http://www.mapinc.org/newsgray/v99/n548/a09.html

By now it was clear that something was deeply wrong in Plano. Alexander checked with his contacts in the Dallas police department and they said that cheap black-tar heroin was flooding into the area from Mexico. What distinguished this stuff from anything they had seen before was its astonishing quality. The product on the street was five times more potent than the heroin that authorities were accustomed to seeing. Because it was so powerful, you didn't have to shoot it. You could just snort the powder. Soon, Alexander was handling three or four overdoses a night. He knew he had to get the word out about what was quickly becoming an epidemic, but his superiors suggested he keep quiet. In the next few months, he cornered one official after another and kept getting the same nervous response. "People don't want the community to be known as having a drug problem," says Alexander." The city council, the police department, big business, whatever. They don't want to talk about it." In three years, eighteen teenagers from Plano and its suburbs would die of heroin overdoses. In 1997 alone, another 75 to 100 would be brought back from the brink of death by Alexander and his colleagues.

Zimmerman was taking Adderall in addition to Temazepam and drinking alcohol. That's why he was ordered by a judge into alcohol class after he was arrested in 2005 for domestic assault or assaulting a member of law enforcement.

If every teen deserved a death sentence on the streets for drug abuse, there'd be a helluva lot of white teens, many locally, just ripe for the hunting season.

btw-When I was in El Paso during the 1980s youth from wealthy surrounding suburbs were basically doing the same thing. That is, dropping dead like flies from overdosing from heroin. Their primary drug of choice. In fact, there's been a few deaths by drug overdose locally, although I'm not sure of the type drug used, that were downplayed and kept out of the media because of the families standing in the community.
