    So.... is that why you've been in such a high defence of Zimmerman? Yankee presidents, race wars etc? Your colours are starting to shine through.
    Well I thought it was just me. I passed this post up I was so confused. But it seems you're confused too. After trying to battle through all the adjectives and dramatic wording, and getting to the end, I still am not sure whether the poster is "for or against".

    Other than a tad of run-away slave blood that doesn't really show, my color is not in this color war. Not white, black or brown. Those of my mind and heart here look plenty white enough so they're ok and those who don't are on the other side of the country.

    At least for a while, here and there around here, some folks are going to get their "The South will rise again." All neighborhood crime watch signs gone. But the "Bars and Stars" are flying. Oh, and some signs in yards all over about saving our community (from the evil feds). I think you'll like that. You'll have more to rage about.

    I'm a fish and wildlife guy so it's not my job to deal with either. As long as they don't mess with the fish and animals, I've done my job.

    It sounds like something out of The Turner Diaries.

    Who said it would shatter? I sure didn't. Tell ya what though, the next time that you are on a sidewalk bend down and punch the sidewalk hard enough to wound your hand and then look at the resulting wound. You'll notice bits and pieces of cement in that wound. Sidewalks are not glass smooth ya know.

Wise reflective memory statement to make on his part.
    You're basically correct here. But if a DA isn't going to prosecute because there isn't enough evidence do you think that a judge would sign such a warrant? It is not uncommon for police to go talk to a DA before a judge to see if they have enough evidence to bring before a judge to get that warrant.

    Just a note, cops are trained to detect if someone is high/drunk. If they had thought that Zimmerman was high/drunk then I'm sure that they would have tested him. The testing of Trayvon for those is actually standard procedure in any autopsie.

    People not familiar with the rural and small city Florida and the South really can't sense what I just wrote because they deal really only in platitudes, slogans and emotional perceptions. The large number of backwoods folk, the last of the KKKer (literally, not figuratively) and the old retired transplants from the North so common to Florida are forming a compact and various cells between them. They also will form the new political power, hooking in with the evangelicals. It is interesting watching this unfold.

    For now it just means pickup trucks dashing around with 3x5 confederate flags on flagpoles wired in and an increase in "Don't Re-NIG" bumper stickers. The next gun show at the National Guard armoury will likely be more packed than usual and the gun booths at the flea market will do well. In the past, their parents and grandparents kept this area quite white. Easy to do actually. Whether it is just talk and show now or a returning reality? Too early to say. The back lands, islands, and woodland swamp areas can be tough. They do things their way in their territory. That territory might just have expanded greatly. Maybe not.

    I may still editorialize on "the case" itself and I see no criminal case. I've already expressed it isn't illegal for someone to dial 911 and that a person may use deadly force when under attack with deadly force (concrete sidewalk). Even if the attacker is African-American and you're not. Otherwise, I just became neither for or against anything but specific people of my own mind and heart and myself. This isn't my fight and I won't make otherwise.

    I really can't stand eating olives. However, I love dipping freshly baked bread into extra virgin olive oil mixed with balsamic vinegar. It's a great snack for kids too. Pretty healthy.

    I have property on the Gulf in a sorta rural area. Don't live there. I will admit I don't go door to door to canvas folks opinions. I do know a few folks in the area. One being a pilot with the Game/Fish. I've seen those pick-up trucks and think they're stupid. I don't "lump" everyone into the same catagory because of what I see. Otherwise there'd be no one left for me to talk to, ya know? There will always be people in our society who will hate someone else because of "color/religion/thinking/political view/etc. You can't stop stupid, you learn to deal with it and move on.

    I am a 2nd Amendment advocate. I love to shoot, especially skeet shooting. And just because someone did something stupid/dangerous/illegal with a weapon, I shouldn't, be punished for their act. JMO
