    Florida Boycott Resolution Proposed By Chris Holden, California Assemblymember

    So the politicians from another state are going to tell people to Boycott Florida. A vacation hot spot.....(also in competition with California over that industry). Do you think this Politician deserves to be re-elected? Shouldn't this individual be about representing the people of California? Why is she off into another states business? Why is the Black Caucus from another state allowed to interfere in another states Rights?

    Just what is the Progressive site MoveOn.org.....trying to stir up in this country? Should they be telling people around the country not to go to Florida or States with Stand your Ground Laws?
    This is laughable!! A state whose primary industry (entertainment) is overflowing with multiple partner marriages (if they marry at all) , babies out of wedlock, give children names that could only have been derived from a drug induced stupor... lifetime memberships at detox centers, a list of DUI's and DWI's that will make your head spin, is preaching to a state that followed the law, provided a fair trial and was acquitted by a jury of his peers???? AYFKM!!!!!!

    My concern is all these Loud Mouth Politicians that want to throw themselves up into the mix. Act like the problem is theirs and they can Identify. Which is a crock of ****. They were elected to SERVE their People and their states. Not Florida not any issues coming out of Florida that doesn't affect their state.

    They need to be made to pay the price. Both the Media and any of the Pols, Race baiters Sharptones and Jesse Jackson the Wannabe Gangbanger that found Jesus when he was getting his ass kicked. No need to allow them to run around the Country cause chaos and turmoil over their own personal feelings.
    So what price do they need to "pay" and how is that going to happen? A boycott is as American as apple pie and goes back to our revolutionary days before the USA was ever born.

    Well and most of Obama's Major Financial backing comes up out of there. Imagine that. See there should have been a reporter there that could have put this Pol Right on the Spot. Even afterwards and the Camera cuts off. I would have told her.....now I am going to make you the laughing stock of the country. Bet next time you will keep that damn big mouth of yours shut. When it don't have nothing to do with you or your people. Thanks for proving to the Country why you shouldn't be in any Elected office.

    A severe one.....since talking, taking them thru the courts don't work, plus nothing else has worked up until this point. What other option is there? They only need to know the significance of the Term. Or else!

    Or worse.....Illinois! Where not only are Businesses moving out but so to the people.

    Good news tho for all those on the left.....due to the 96Billion Pension problem. Chicago and Illinois will raise taxes again. Which they just got done doing. Oh those Old promises, huh. Wherein they will say it will be on the Wealthy. But you know the real deal and who it is going to land on.

    But that's okay they have time today to take off and hold a rally for Zimmermann to be tried for Civil Rights abuse.

    I waved, didn't you see me? I drove down on a Friday and back up on a Monday on I-95, really close to where you live. [Then a couple days later I drove to St. Augustine on a separate trip. But for that trip we went down I-75, I-10, I-295 route. I had to get in my beach time this summer. It is a requirement in my world. ]

    Explain the relevance of the law. How did it apply to Zimmerman?? How did THIS jury instruction apply to Zimmerman/Martin? --

    If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
    What is wrong with you?

    Perhaps Haymarket, who Liked your post, would like to step in and explain. Haymarket? How did the above jury instruction relate to Zimmerman's actions that night?

I'm not artsy at all, so Asheville's artistic reputation isn't important to me. It's just a great climate, beautiful scenery, traffic isn't bad at all. It's a city, but it doesn't overwhelm you. And nature is all around you. The city didn't overtake it's natural surroundings. Most people that live in Asheville aren't from Asheville, so it's a hodgepodge of people from different places, and most everybody is friendly. The only unfriendly people are usually some of the anti-tourist punks. Just drugged up kids who think people coming here to see the city is somehow offensive. But the worst they do is yell at people to go home, or flip off the tourist buses. It's not like they go around mugging tourists.
    well, I guess everybody has to have a hobby.

    Whether it did or not the jury PERCEIVED it to be pertinent enough to refer to Stand your ground in their deliberations. If the law didn't exist they would not anything to refer to.
    It is impossible for you to say that Stand Your Ground did not apply in this case. The instant it was mentioned it came into play and effected the outcome. The defense chose not to use it outright but it became part of the trial when it was mentioned by the Judge in her instructions.
