1. I wonder if Obama and the DOJ will open a case to determine if this mans civil rights were violated : “White Jogger says he was attacked by several black men in retaliation for the Zimmerman verdict.” “Or this poor guys, a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, “This is for Trayvon.”

2. Eric Holder condemns self-defense laws in wake of Zimmerman acquittal : “Eric Holder, the US attorney general, launched an attack Tuesday on self-defense laws he said encouraged more violence, and used George Zimmerman’s acquittal over the murder of Trayvon Martin as a backdrop to call for a deeper debate about issues of race and gun controls.”

3. Obama delivering final death blow to economy : 74% of small businesses will fire workers, cut hours under Obamacare : “Despite the administration’s controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.”

4. Three Reasons Why The U.S. Dollar Is Already Worthless : “The poster-child for all this worthless banker-paper is obviously the U.S. dollar. As the world’s declining “reserve currency”; the U.S. dollar has fundamentals of worthlessness not shared by any of this other fiat paper.”

5. Colorado town considers licensing bounty hunters to shoot down drones : “The tiny town of Deer Trail, Colo. — barely more than a wide spot on Interstate 70 about 55 miles east of Denver, population 546 — is considering an ordinance that would authorize licensed bounty hunters to shoot down unmanned aircraft violating its “sovereign airspace.”

    You have to be white to be a racist, only white Americans get charged with civil rights violations. Sorry just venting stay safe pack..

  2. I believe this is what the crew in DC has wanted all along, to stir the pot to the point that they have to declare martial law to quell the violence. Once they do,it’s on!

    Eric Holder is the worst type of liberties thief there is. He has more blood on his hands than anybody in this country. Why not ask the families of border guards killed with gun’s from fast and furious if their “civil rights” were violated. The fact that our supposed president hasn’t ordered his arrest is a testament to just how corrupt he is as well. The entire lot should be imprisoned or deported!

    • BK in KC says:

      Not to mention the thousands of Mexican citizens killed by his Fast and Furious program. Follow that up with his persecution of George Zimmerman and you can ask, “Mr. Holder, why do you hate hispanics?”

      Holder just loves playing the “race card”, so what’s good for the goose….

  4. Doris Jones says:

    1. In the interest of true fairness and equality–people should absolutely INSIST that all racial crimes (for any race) be treated exactly the SAME under the law. With Holder in charge this probably will not happen as some whistleblowers testified during Senate hearings that Holder had informed them early on that ONLY “white against black crimes” were to be prosecuted. If we all stand by and allow this to go down that way–well, Americans then deserve the
    government they get. Holder has done more damage to America
    and to race relations than any one in this adminstration.

    I think all “Hate crimes laws” are nonsense.
    If you kill a black person, an asian or a person of your own race
    whatever that is–isn’t the person just as valuable irrespective of
    his race, just as dead and the crime just as bad? Why give higher
    priority for one murder over another? That makes no sense to me.
    We prosecute people for the ACTS/CRIMES they DO–how in the
    world can you prosecute them for what they “thought”? Who can
    really know what they were thinking or their reasoning at the time?

    4. China is right at this moment purchasing all of the PHYSICAL gold
    they can out of Hong Kong. It was stated on the international business news that China is now purchasing 40% of all gold sold there with
    India close behind. There are some strange “price fixing” things happening with the price of gold and silver and other PMs. This is happening thru the hedges and puts being done with the “paper gold” and is permitting them to skew the real gold. China is winning the price war on this one.(And individuals wise enough to see thru it and to
    buy anyway.)

    Bet we will see the price of PMs skyrocket when the dollar crashes as it surely will. All fiat currencies do. An expert on the history of money said the “average age of a fiat currency is 27 years.”
    So we are already a beyond that from the time we took out our gold standard completely.

    5. The Colorado town will NEVER be permitted to shoot down any drones whether or not they have a “law” on their books. Until some things change drastically in our country the government/military forces trump all states and towns and people will NOT be willing to stand against them in any amount of numbers of people that would be effective. Most people are not as brave as Edward Snowden nor will they risk everything to stand up for a principle–sad but true. Remember OUR duly elected representatives voted for and signed into law the “Patriot Acts” and other legislation that permits our own
    government to have rights over the people they never should have had. And did the general populace rise up AT THE TIME to protest?
    NO, NO and NO. So here is the result. Protests are a little late. Still
    it is possible to have a change and repeal the Patriot Act but the
    same people who stood by the first time and watched their freedoms
    disappear without a peep will do the SAME now I predict. Hope I am
    wrong.

      “ultimate power corrupts ultimately” now that the sheeple have been made aware of this and how it affects them things might be different. otherwise it will take a food crisis to spur them out of their slumber. that is what really brought on arab spring/egyptian uprising.

      • Nice thought RR but nothing will change until TSHTF.

        Molon Labe

        • And the S wont HTF cause the sheep are too whooped to try and rise up to reclaim their country from an oppressive govt. Sadly… there aren’t enough patriots to accomplish the feat without the sheep.

          There are just too many folks that are relying on someone else to take care of them and they have no desires to take care of themselves…. thus they are part of the problem… not the solution. If we are ever plagued by a food crisis not only will we have to potentially fight the govt to keep what we have, but also the masses. It will be interesting times to say the least.

      • Doris Jones says:

        riverrider,
        SO right! “It will take a food crisis to spur them out of their slumber:” OR, if they lose their favorite sports event on TV.
        I once overheard a Muslim laughingly tell some other Muslim (at our family restaurant) that “These Americans will NEVER do anything as long as they have a 6 pack and a football show and some ribs on the grill.” I was horrified because I knew he was probably telling the truth. But I sure want him to be WRONG!

      +1 on your comment on item #1

    • Doris,
      I guess I look at things a bit differently than most. I figure we’ll have to deal with race relations when we meet an actual new race, like the Vulcan’s, Klingons or the Romulans. Until then, all of us belong, the last I looked, to the human race. Slight differences in DNA may make our skin pigments a bit lighter or darker, or change our height, or the color of our hair or eyes, other than those slight differences, we are really talking more about culture than race.

      • hvaczach says:

        True enough but so long as dividing us is profitable so shall it be! If you want to know who the true problem makers are follow the money/power! Fear is a control tool and the races don’t trust each other in lsrge part because they have been trained not too. Just sayin as ridiculous as it is it is the world we live in,just blame someone else and it will be o.k.

      • Doris Jones says:

        OhioPrepper,
        You are absolutely correct. We all do belong to “the human race.” I also think our differences are “slight” and that we should make no more over the color of one’s skin than we do over whether we have green, blue or brown eyes. The more we Zero in on “differences” the more difficulty between cultures and groups.

        Personally, I celebrate the differences—just like I think it would be boring if all dogs or horses were crossbred so much that we only had ONE dog and ONE horse type. Wouldn’t it just be great if we COULD have some alien race arrive and maybe then all us “earthlings” could stand together?
        (Heck, I have told people if all my freckles merged together I would be a brown person!) And what difference would it make.
        None!

          For the first 30 or 35 years of my life I thought that we were Swedes. Turns out that we are Fins. I have more Norwegien friends now.However People are people, if you are a scumbag, it does not matter what race you are.You are a scumbag.

  5. Fighting between ethnic groups is wrong, but not new. My Father (an Alter Boy in the Catholic Church) used to go from his German neighborhood to fight the Swedish, Irish, or Italian kids.
    I’ve seen stabbing victims come from High School Football games in my O.R.
    Young men fight, that’s what the Army and Marines are for. Just put these knuckleheads in a foxhole together and they’ll forget all about what color their buddy is.

    Jeet yet?

  8. Hmmm, you know, I have to wonder, in my area the zimmerman thing and our local activists/protesters- read idiots- are whats on the news. Oh, and weather (we are finally getting rain!) and a few other local things. Thats it. Snowden? Whos that? Rumors of Russia moving troops? No idea what your talking about. The economy? Hmmm, we have bigger things to worry about like get out and shut down a freeway that takes people into the medical center of houston, in protest of a decision that was made by a jury in a completely different state.

    I think the government is getting exactly what they want. They were looking for an attention diverter and they have it. Who is talking about Syria, benghazi, snowden, the irs, or anything else for that matter?

    • Exactly…..distraction!

    • TG, you are 100% correct. Continue the deception and use whatever is at hand to distract the sheeple from what’s really taking place by TPTB.

    I would be surprised if I was alone in thinking that they should have pulled a Mockingbird for Trayvon vs Zimmerman.

    It’s been a while since I read it, but I gather from “In to Kill a Mockingbird” the children were upset that a black man took the fall to avoid a riot.

    • hvaczach says:

      We have just been told no raise no overtime {which some of us where using to survive} and we should just be happy we still have a job! after our organization just spent 22 million on a new sports arena! can you say bull shit wew have gotten less than 8 percent total over last five years and our CEO has never received less than a 750,000 dollar bonus. And if he deservred it it would be one thing but we are now experiencing the worst financial struggle since the Carter Administration.

      • hvaczach;
        If you can remember the Carter Admin….you know what the next step for control will be—yes–inflation or hyperinflation.
        Hope your rocks are cleaned so you have someplace to go until the rest of the USA’s citizens wake up.
        A CEO who gets that kind of bonus, and you have to struggle. I do not know which Corp you work for, but sometimes the stakeholders need a shaking up to realize their profits are coming out of the works pockets. Do not get me wrong I have been and still am a stakeholder in the stock market. I just do not believe the producers(workers) should take it in backside.

  11. Winomega says:

    Hey M.D. MD, I don’t feel like emailing you. How about scenario-response drills? Basically, pose a “what-if” and have people run through what they would do.

  12. Frustration causes riots. Long accumulating frustrations are like tinder, waiting for a match.

    I would say that empty stomachs cause acute frustration. That is like throwing oil on that tinder AND lighting a match. You get that plus blame on a regime (i.e. “let them eat cake”) and you get a revolt.

  13. Dewey Crow says:

    Ya’ll Crackers jus don’t understand, it’s a black thing!
    Brother Trayvon was gunned down by an (almost) White Racist.
    Sure he was high, but the nigga was only defending his right to redistribute some of the wealth that was stolen by Whitey, from our peoples, for centuries.
    Like President Obama said, “We’all need to honor Trayvon”. So we get a gang of Brothers, find a lone person, and beat the crap out of them. Like I said, it’s a “Black Thing”.

        (again, sarcasm)

        • I know Dewey, he is as white as I am, and not a racist. He ‘s just a fool having some fun, while pointing out the irony of the actions of some of the Protesters.

          Knowing Dewey, my guess is that he didn’t mean to offend anyone.

      • Winomega says:

        I am being too stupid to be offended. I am being honestly interested in remembering the sarcasm tag.

        Well, since I can’t even use sarcasm, remembering to mark trolling levels up to “honestly disagree, but exposit your point more precisely.”

  14. Bam Bam says:

    Has anyone seen or read about the Piers Morgan interview with Martin’s girlfriend? This is interesting. I already knew that the terms “nigger” and “nigga” were distinct in the black vernacular. “Nigger” is a racist term; “nigga” is a term of respect. Today I learned that “cracker” and “cracka” have distinct meanings. “Cracker” is a racist term for whites; “cracka” is like “popo”, the police or security. Apparently, Martin’s girlfriend said this under oath but no one picked up on this until the Piers Morgan interview. When Martin referred to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracka” he meant that someone with a badge was following him. The “creepy” part was because Martin thought Zimmerman wanted to rape him. (This happens in Miami.) Martin’s girlfriend said she told him to run because she thought Zimmerman was a pervert hiding behind a badge.

    (Rush Limbaugh picked up on this interview and noted that the interaction between Martin and Zimmerman was not racially motivated because, as Martin’s girlfriend says, it was dark and raining–he didn’t know if the man following him was white or black and Zimmerman is dark-skinned, not white.)

    I didn’t believe any of this until I asked my students–many of whom are from Miami. Sure enough, “creepy-ass cracka” has a different connotation in their idiom than ours. They explained that “creepy-ass cracka” means pervert hiding behind a badge.

    • Donna in MN says:

      I read up on it and commented on “stand your Ground” page. To attack a person whom is deemed gay is violating that victims civil rights. I wonder if Holder will prosicute civil rights violations against Zimmerman? When Zimmerman’s civil rights were violated according to Ms Jentil on CNN…..

      The government always picks the wrong side. They reward failure and punish success. They stand by criminal acts and punish innocent people.

      • Bam Bam says:

        Donna,

        Martin didn’t sucker punch Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was gay–that’s no big deal to most young people; he sucker punched Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was a rapist.

        • Thats the problem when you are 17 , you know everything …….then end up with a bullet in you . The kid was a turd , had a rap sheet .

    • Either way they need to start speaking ENGLISH instead of Ebonics . If we are all the same as the Liberals would like to propagandize , then why is it that a total stranger calls on the phone , who you have never seen , and cant see ……that most of the time you can tell when they are Black .

  16. Civil-Right’s in this country are becoming a joke, literally. I’m sick and tired of people thinking that another race, religious group, or sexual orientation, is going to “Destroy our Country”. It’s to much of “We the Government” and not “We the People” – hence, the droves of corrupt officials, race-baiting, and avoidance of all the important issues that are going on BEHIND the smoke screen of the Zimmerman trial.

    Mr. Elder raises some awesome points – if he wasn’t talked over.
    I love this interview, because he brings up valid points. I also love what Bill Cosby said – (not verbatim) Most of Black America has no affiliation with Africa – and shouldn’t be called African-American since some don’t even know where Africa is on a map. Not to mention have never been there – again, Cosby blames poor education having similar views as Elder. Both have talked about Slavery still being an issue of “blame” to whites.

    Personally, my family wasn’t even in the United States during those times, my grandfather came from England at 1, and my grandmother’s parents came from Germany- My dad’s grandfather was born in Canada and my great grandmother immigrating from Scotland to Canada, before they both came to the United States. Each of them had limited funds – and had to work extremely hard to become successful. They did the best they could, and even I grew up in a “ghetto”. I have seen:
    A white man being stabbed by a black women over drugs.
    My brother beaten with chain for his sneakers and robbed by 3 black men.
    A white man beating a black man with a baseball bat.
    Me, being punched in the face by a black man when I was 17
    A white man opening fire with a rifle on myself and 4 friends (thank god he was drunk and no one was hit)
    Over 50 drug raids (that’s on the lower end, of remembering)
    A gay black teen being bullied and ridiculed for being black and gay.
    I could be here all night – these are things I’ve seen before my 21st birthday. I didn’t roll over and blame anyone – I focused and studied – worked my ass off to do better.
    There is more important things going on.

    to sit, sulk, and blame your situation is not going to make it better. My mom and step dad had to work and save for 10+ years to get out of the neighborhood we lived in. I had to work my ass off in school to receive and education – I didn’t roll over and blame my environment. I’m sick and tired of teens blaming “Poor Education” – do I think schools are perfect? NO, but it is a parent’s and Kids “Responsibility” to read, lean, and make something of themselves. Welfare, Social Security, and Food Stamps weren’t made to be a way of life – they were there for temporary assistance.

    Ok, I’m ranting – off to bed it’s late!
