This had to go at the top…..

What is really sad it that African-American teens are murdered every day in the inner city for stupid reasons (they are unarmed, outside playing, walking home with candy and drinks, murdered for their shoes or jackets, etc. etc.), but only ONE alleged murder get the national attention from politicians, activists, liberal media and proggy bloggers. 

Maybe, because the shooter is “white”.  They are not interested in black on black crime. …… If they put the energy into other murders they do on this one maybe they can curb some of the inner city crime and murders.  There should be rallies every day for the murders that take place across the country EVERY DAY!

It is truly pathetic.

Now have at it.

Since our leftist bloggers out there want to deflect and dodge away from the issues Americans care about and try to reshape the debate into one of social issues, here is their chance to hoist their own petard or hang themselves.

Update: Wow, no takers.  With the dumbed down talking points being obAMATEUR’s stellar record, you would think that the lefty bloggers would have something to brag about…..

But, today marks one of the most remarkable statistics to come out of Washington in a long time: Today, Tuesday, March 20 2012 marks the 1,056th day since Congress passed a yearly budget for the federal government.

The fault does not lie with Congress as a whole. The President has failed to lead. Senate Republicans have tried to do the same. But after passing a budget resolution in 2009, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has refused to allow passage of a new budget in 2010, 2011, and, it appears, 2012 as well.  He has refused to allow Republican budgets to the floor for debate.

“We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year,” Reid told reporters last month, arguing that legislation setting limits on spending is sufficient.  Of course we know that a budget loaded with deficit spending is not a good tactic in an election year.

“The fact is, you don’t need a budget,” agreed fellow Democrat and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer a few weeks ago. “We can adopt appropriations bills. We can adopt authorization policies without a budget. We already have an agreed-upon cap on spending.”

In fact, the lawmakers are REQUIRED BY LAW to pass a budget each year. That’s made clear by the Congressional Budget Act of 1974. But why let the rule of law get in the way.  Just like that pesky Constitution, the law does not allow Democrats to do what they want, because they feel we are too stupid to take care of ourselves.

Update…..
More on the debt:

ObAMATEUR made a grand-standing speech as a Senator calling Bush’s spending unpatriotic and attacking him for putting this debt on our children and grandchildre.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUPZJDBJI84.

At the time, Bush’s debt accumulation was $4.89 trillion for EIGHT years.  This according to the obAMATEUR was “unpatriotic”.   And of course, his fellow Democrats and media minions parroted these talking points, ad nauseum.

obAMATEUR’s debt accumulation has surpassed Bush’s “unpatriotic” spending in just OVER THREE YEARS.  His debt, which has been saddled on our children and grandchildren, sits at $4.94 trillion and still growing PLUS obAMATEUR’s “health care” has not kicked in yet.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57400369-503544/national-debt-has-increased-more-under-obama-than-under-bush/

The CBO came our a few days ago stating that its cost will be DOUBLE what was originally estimated by the White House.

The country’s financial state is in dire straits.  The rising deficits and more debt accumulation than any president in history are the reasons Democrats don’t want to pass a budget during an election year.  This action will bring the country’s financial state into the limelight front and center and the pResident will have to answer for it, guaranteeing certain doom for his election chances.

As I said before, the LAW requires Congress to pass a budget.  All the budgets are being held up by Harry Reid in the Senate.  Democrats trash the law and the Constitution to save this poor excuse of a pResident.

    What if Trayvon, under the protection of the Florida law, felt threatened by Zimmerman and having a gun,shot and killed him instead of the other way around?
    Don’t bother answering. Trayvon would be in jail.

      a BEATING on a defeated, bleeding man on his back screaming for help is NOT a “threat”…it is a FELONY ASSAULT which can be stopped by deadly force.
