Come And Get 'Em, Big Daddy

The Zimmerman Case ...

... plays out about the way you'd expect.

Because it's now an effort to placate the Al Sharpton grievance-mongers in this country, the prosecution of that non-white white guy who shot and killed little Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida is not going to be about justice.  It's going to be about pleasing Al Sharpton.

And so it goes ...
Problems with the Zimmerman Affidavit
By John Work, American Thinker

I spent twenty years working Colorado law enforcement, followed by nearly two years as an investigator for the Colorado State Public Defender's Office. Ten of my twenty-two years in the criminal justice arena were in the area of criminal investigations, complex and simple.

I just read the arrest affidavit in the Florida v. George Zimmerman case. I'm pretty certain that I would have been laughed out of any judge's chambers in Colorado had I brought in a piece of evidentiary matter so poorly written. The Zimmerman affidavit is so deficient in properly sourced factual information and full of unsubstantiated, unsourced conclusions that I am appalled that a state's attorney would even give it a second look. I don't know what's going on in the Florida Courts. But where I worked as a cop, all summaries of statements from eye- and earwitnesses, whether inculpatory or exculpatory, had to be both sourced and included in a properly assembled arrest affidavit.

Every piece of information in the affidavit must be provable to a jury. This case is terribly lacking, both in supporting evidence and in veracity. [link]
Perhaps the affidavit should simply read, "George Zimmerman pissed off the black community."

Question: Did George Zimmerman, based upon the evidence presented in this government affidavit, commit murder? This former investigator doesn't see it.

(Nor does an expert in criminal defense.)

The bigger question, though, is how Al Sharpton will react to the proceedings. Will he be satisfied if a manslaughter plea bargain is offered and accepted? Will he be accepting of Zimmerman's punishment not including life in prison? Shackles and cuffs? A public flogging?

America waits with bated breath for his response ...

'Jobs' Is Job Number One

How many times have we heard Barack Obama make that pledge?  And yet ...
Time for cease-fire in phony 'war on women'?
By Byron York Washington Examiner

The underlying point they're trying to make, say Romney aides, is that the big issue for women is the economy, and not contraceptives or abortion, as Democrats screaming "war on women" would have voters believe. Of course, those issues that matter most to women -- jobs, economic growth, the price of gas -- matter just as much to men. None of them involves a "war on women" by anybody.

One of the main themes of the Romney campaign is that in 2009 and 2010, when Americans were desperate for a president to devote his energies to creating jobs and fixing the economy, Obama was instead obsessed with passing an intrusive and vastly expensive national health care plan, as well as with pushing through Congress a pork-laden stimulus, and even hoped to pass a cap-and-trade scheme that would have reordered the parts of the economy that hadn't already been reordered by the health care scheme.

The shameful irony here is in the fact that Mr. York could have added Obama's war on successful Americans to his list of Leftist causes our president has championed, causes that have gotten in the way of his doing anything about the economy. The irony? Our "job-creating" president has sought - is seeking - punishment of those who create jobs.

Still, York is right. Obama promised one thing and delivered something quite different.

He should be held to account for ... oh, wait. He will be held to account. In November.

Oh, For God's Sake

How do these people get on the air to embarrass themselves, their descendents, their ancestors, and the network that hired them:
