Trayvon Martin – Who let the crazies out?

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Seriously. What the hell? Since the moment I first started blogging on Trayvon Martin, I have asked for cooler heads to prevail. All I want is justice to be done. I want a thorough investigation. I would like for somebody to tell me why George Zimmerman was not arrested and placed behind bars on the night of the shooting.

We’re getting more and more extraneous information having little or nothing to do with the events on that fateful night. The fact that George Zimmerman was required to take anger management classes is pertinent. How can someone who is required to take anger management classes have a gun? Well, I know the answer. We’re talking about Florida. We are talking about the deep South. Basically, in the South, you get arrested and thrown behind bars if you don’t have a gun.

Several days ago, Spike Lee in a paroxysm of immense stupidity decided to post George Zimmerman’s address in his twitter feed. I understand that many of us get very upset and angered over this incident but we cannot allow vigilante justice to take root. We need the system that we have to work. If the system doesn’t work then we need to change it. It is that simple. Spike Lee, owning up to his mistake, (turns out he gave out the wrong address) has admitted responsibility and has settled with the family. The New Black Panthers have placed a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head. My goodness. I just don’t see how that’s helpful.

Pundits, pontificators and general knuckleheads have all come out of the wall like a scene in one of those zombie movies. They all have something to say about this case. This includes Ann Coulter. She decided to show her face on the Laura Ingram Show just to spew her own particular brand of hate. We need more investigating and less prognosticating.

I understand how difficult it is to try to figure out fact from fiction in our world of political hyperbole. Almost nobody plays it straight anymore. Almost everybody is trying to twist the facts to their own advantage. Then, in order to get the “appropriate” media exposure you really need to say something outrageous. Michele Bachmann is/was the queen of outrageous. She has made a career out of saying the most outlandish and fact-challenging statements and has lived in the land of confusion and lies for most of her political career. Rick Perry, Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter are just a few of the politicians/commentators who stretch the truth so far that it is unrecognizable. So, multiple websites have cropped up whose sole purpose is to correct the facts. PolitiFact is one such website. In order to get publicity and drive traffic to their website, they’ve come up with the “Lie of the Year.” This year, they’ve decided that the lie of the year was that Paul Ryan’s budget plan was going to end Medicare.

As I see it, Medicare is about seniors getting healthcare. Basically, once you become a senior you qualify for Medicare and you can therefore get healthcare. It is that simple. This plan, under Paul Ryan, would have been changed to a voucher system in which seniors would be given vouchers to use to pay for their healthcare. Once they spent a voucher, seniors were out of luck. To me, this is a fundamental change in Medicare and how the system works. Now, no longer would seniors have the security of knowing that all of their bills would be paid. In my mind, this would be fundamentally changing Medicare so that it looks nothing like the Medicare that we know today. You can call it Obama Care. You can call it an elephant or you can call it Medicare but it is not the Medicare that we know today. For some reason, PolitiFact misses this fundamental distinction. Paul Krugman and Steve Benen have more.

Bachmann is a close-minded fundamentalist, perfect for the 1890s

I have a very hard time commenting on Michele Bachmann. It is like with Ann Coulter. I really can’t talk about her either. I don’t have anything nice to say about either of them. Bachmann is truly special.

From The Root:

GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann has signed a conservative pledge called “The Marriage Vow — A Declaration of Dependence Upon Marriage and Family.” It’s not surprising that it’s anti-abortion, anti-same sex marriage and anti-divorce. But one particular piece has everyone up in arms over the idea that she and other signatories think that black people were better off during slavery:

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

Do Bachmann and others who signed the pledge actually think we were better off without freedom and with all of the other emotional and physical horrors that accompanied being enslaved? We don’t know, quite honestly doubt they care, and don’t believe that’s actually the point (and the very accuracy of the statement — including whether living arrangements during slavery are what we’d consider “two-parent households” — is a whole different conversation). (more…)

So, what is Michele Bachmann proposing? Is she saying that President Obama should “fix” the Black community simply because he is president or because he is Black? Is she stating that President Barack Obama should sign a presidential statement saying that many women should never get a divorce? Is she stating that President Barack Obama should impose his own will on the Black population because he is leading by example? He is a married man. He has stayed with his wife. Finally, I don’t believe the statistic. I doubt there are any stats kept on whether mothers and fathers stayed together in slavery and whether they raised their children together in slavery. The statistics kept on slaves were meager at best. Slaves were treated as property. Slaveowners knew the number of slaves they had and probably knew the sex of their slaves but I’m positive they did not keep any data and did not make any effort to keep families together. As a matter fact, the separating of families was one of the great injustices imposed upon Blacks during slavery.

With her views, I think that Bachmann would have been perfect for the 1890’s. She could have stood up against the women’s movement. She could have run a great campaign against Grover Cleveland or William McKinley
