  •  I'm wrong about my experience? (0+ / 0-)


    What you may have seen is 50% of what is on the Internet. See my comment to GramofSam above. The anonymous Internet is not real America.

    I come from a very conservative town. And I know lots of conservatives across this country, most of them own owners who believe in self-defense but not stalking and killing a kid. And yes, Trayvon was a kid.  

    They were  all horrified.

    Don't tell me I'm "so wrong" about what I experienced.  

    Where did Zimmerman's money come from? Do you know?  Did you stop to think that the bulk of it came from lobby groups and not average Americans?

    After all, Newt Gungrich ran for president with the support of how many people?

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

    •  Zimmerman had a ton of support from around (0+ / 0-)

      the country, and fro tons of conservatives.  I knew a number of people who defended him and I live in the liberal bay area.  It's good to hear about your experiences, but to say that there wasn't a huge attack against Trayvon Martin is just wrong, and it wasn't just lobbyists.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  just because they say so, does NOT make it (0+ / 0-)

      true. People tell you what you want to hear. Who in their right mind would say that publicly?
