Charles Barkley agrees with the verdict and condemns the MSM!

"CHARLES BARKLEY: Well, I agreed with the verdict. I feel sorry that young kid got killed. But they didn't have enough evidence to charge him. Something clearly went wrong that night. Clearly something went wrong. I feel bad for anybody who loses a kid, but if you looked at the case and you don't make it -- there was some racial profiling, no question about it. But something happened that changed the dynamic of that night, and I know -- that's probably not a popular opinion among most people but just looking at the evidence I agreed with the verdict.

I just feel bad because I don't like when race gets out in the media because I don't think the media has a pure heart, as I call it. There are very few people have a pure heart when it comes to race. Racism is wrong in any, shape, form -- a lot of black people are racist too. I think sometimes when people talk about racism, they say only white people are racist. There are a lot of black people who are racist. I don't like when it gets out there in the media because I don't think the media has clean hands. ..."

After Wage Vote, Walmart Scraps D.C. Store Plans

After Wage Vote, Walmart Scraps D.C. Store Plans | Fox Business 
Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) no longer plans to build three stores in the nation’s capitol, after the city’s council voted to force large retailers to pay starting wages that are 50% higher than the minimum wage there. 
The world’s largest retailer also said it will consider its options related to three other Washington, D.C., stores that are still under construction. ...
This will make the libs happy because they don't like it that Walmart is non-union. It'll hurt the poor but when was the welfare of the poor any concern for libs. All they do for the poor is give them lip service and in this case, higher prices.

Linchpin for Obama’s plan to predict future leakers unproven, isn’t likely to work, experts say

"In an initiative aimed at rooting out future leakers and other security violators, President Barack Obama has ordered federal employees to report suspicious actions of their colleagues based on behavioral profiling techniques that are not scientifically proven to work, according to experts and government documents.

The techniques are a key pillar of the Insider Threat Program, an unprecedented government-wide crackdown under which millions of federal bureaucrats and contractors must watch out for "high-risk persons or behaviors" among co-workers. Those who fail to report them could face penalties, including criminal charges.

Obama mandated the program in an October 2011 executive order after Army Pfc. Bradley Manning downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from a classified computer network and gave them to WikiLeaks, the anti-government secrecy group. The order covers virtually every federal department and agency, including the Peace Corps, the Department of Education and others not directly involved in national security." ...

Troubling to put it mildly.

Zimmerman Lawyer Mark O'Mara: "My Client Will Never Be Safe" | RealClearPolitics

While there doesn't appear to be enough to convict him I suspect he will be found guilty. Only 5 of the jury is not black. Remember O.J. and how a guilty man was found not guilty for the same reason Zimmerman will be found guilty.

Employer Mandate? Never Mind

Review & Outlook: Employer Mandate? Never Mind - WSJ.com

"These columns fought the Affordable Care Act from start to passage, and we'd now like to apologize to our readers. It turns out we weren't nearly critical enough. The law's implementation is turning into a fiasco for the ages, and this week's version is the lawless White House decision to delay the law's insurance mandate for businesses, though not for individuals.
The employer mandate is central to ObamaCare's claim of providing universal coverage. Companies with 50 or more "employee equivalents" must pay a $2,000 penalty per full-time employee if they don't provide government-approved health insurance. The provision was supposed to start in January, and delaying it is like Ford saying its electric car is ready to go, except the electric battery doesn't work.

But all of a sudden on Tuesday evening Mark Mazur—you know him as the deputy assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy—published a blog post canceling the insurance reporting rules and tax enforcement until 2015 as Washington began to evacuate for the long Independence Day weekend. Enjoy the holiday, mate.
White House fixer Valerie Jarrett tried to contain the fallout with a separate blog post promising that ObamaCare is otherwise "staying the course." That's true only if she's referring to the carelessness and improvisation that have defined the law so far. ..."

Very informative and kinda fun to read.

Downton Abbey - "Aplomb"

His Lordship was in the study at Downton Abbey when the butler approached and coughed discreetly.

 "May I ask you a question, My Lord?"

 "Go ahead, Carson ," said His Lordship.

 "I am doing the crossword in The Times and I have found a word I am not too clear on."

 "What word is that?" asked His Lordship.

  "Aplomb," My Lord.

 "Now that's a difficult one to explain. I would say it is self-assurance or complete composure."

 "Thank you, My Lord, but I'm still a little confused."

 "Let me give you an example to make it clearer. Do you remember a few months ago when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived to spend a weekend with us?"

 "I remember the occasion very well, My Lord. It gave the staff and myself much pleasure to look after them."

  "Also," continued the Earl of Grantham, "do you remember when Wills plucked a rose for Kate in the rose garden?"

  "I was present on that occasion, My Lord, ministering to their needs. 

 "While plucking the rose, a thorn embedded itself in his thumb very deeply." 

"I witnessed the incident, My Lord, and saw the Duchess herself remove the thorn and bandage his thumb with her own dainty handkerchief."

 "That evening the prick on his thumb was so sore. Kate had to cut up his venison from our own estate, even though it was extremely tender."

"Yes, My Lord, I did see everything that transpired that evening."

 "The next morning while you were pouring coffee for Her Ladyship, Kate inquired of Wills with a loud voice, 'Darling, does your prick still throb?' And you, Carson, did not spill one drop of coffee! THAT is aplomb."

Democrats are trying to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare

The Insiders: Democrats are trying to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare 

I don’t know if Members of Congress will be hearing about it in town hall gatherings and other meetings back home over the Fourth of July recess, but the rolling thunder of the approaching ObamaCare train can be heard in the distance.  Smart Democrats are beginning to get frantic about the need to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare between now and the 2014 midterm elections.  We are just three months away from the October 1st enrollment start date and so far, nothing about the ObamaCare implementation process should be politically encouraging for Democrats.  In fact, the more people learn about ObamaCare, the more frightened they become. ...

We can all say a huge, "I told you so." whenever we greet our Democrat friends... Not that it will do any good but we'll feel better.

Birdwatchers Gather To See Rare Bird...Which Flies Into A Turbine, Dies

"SCOTLAND -- 80 birdwatchers got together in Scotland to get a glimpse of a White-throated Needletail: a rare bird that has not been seen in the United Kingdom for 22 years. The birders were there to watch the world's fastest flying bird, instead they witnessed it fly directly into a wind turbine where it was killed instantly. 

According to Bird Guides' Josh Jones: "It was seen by birders fly straight into the turbine."

Suicide has not been ruled out. "
