Not the cute little tyke we were all led to believe he was.
Surveillance video that captured some of the last moments of Trayvon Martin’s life shows the teen walking into a Sanford, Fla. 7-11 and purchasing a now-infamous bag of Skittles and Arizona iced tea.

Would you like fingers with that order?
JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan teen finishing off an Arby’s roast beef sandwich chomped down on something tough that tasted like rubber, so he spit it out.
Turns out it tasted like finger. The fleshy, severed pad of an unfortunate employee’s finger, apparently.

It is going to be hard to find a jury to convict Zimmerman of anything now.
(CNN) — Trayvon Martin had drugs in his system when he was fatally shot earlier this year by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, according to autopsy results released Thursday.
Martin’s blood contained THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, according to an autopsy conducted February 27 — the day after the teenager was shot dead.
Toxicology tests found elements of the drug in the teenager’s chest blood — 1.5 nanograms per milliliter of one type (THC), as well as 7.3 nanograms of another type (THC-COOH) — according to the medical examiner’s report. There was also a presumed positive test of cannabinoids in Martin’s urine. It was not immediately clear how significant these amounts were.

Zimmerman’s medical records, the police station surveillance video, and now the Martin autopsy report support Zimmerman’s claim of self defense and establish that Martin was the aggressor.
A leaked autopsy reportedly shows that the bullet that killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin was fired from “intermediate range,” which one forensics expert said means anywhere from one to 18 inches away.
The autopsy, conducted by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also showed that 17-year-old Martin had one small abrasion on his left ring finger below the knuckle, according to the news report. The report could back the account of George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain accused of killing Martin, who has said he fired into Martin’s chest in self-defense as the youth was straddling and pummeling him.

No jury is going to convict Zimmerman of murder based on what evidence has been “leaked” thus far. Thanks to the media feeding frenzy, there will most likely be problems when Zimmerman is acquitted.
Well, it makes sense in light of Obama’s apparent support for fundamentalist Islamic government take-overs in the Middle East. And, how can any of us forget that famous bow to the Saudi King. I honestly don’t have a problem with the man being Muslim (if indeed that is what he is), but I do have a problem with concealing it behind a false veneer of “Christianity”.
In a shocking interview yesterday on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama’s former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam.

It is sad that a site of such religious significance to all three of the Abrahamic faiths would be subjected to such behavior. The strife between the children of Isaac and Ishmael continues.

Okay, the last time I checked, gay folks have the same marriage rights as everyone else does. No one is stopping them from getting married if they so desire. So Bloomberg is an idiot.
Bloomberg told them Americans have slowly understood since this country was founded that if the government can deny freedom to one person, it can deny freedom to everyone. The mayor says every generation has brought more freedom to this country, and he expects the latest generation to continue the work, especially after last Tuesday’s vote approving a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in North Carolina.

The issue (again for the umpteenth time) is not whether or not gays can marry. The issue is whether or not the definition of marriage (been around for thousands of years) should be changed to accommodate deviant sexual orientations and relationships.
