    This is what I sent to my senators and congressman today:
    I want justice for George Zimmerman. If Obama or Holder pursues any federal charges against Zimmerman, they both should be thrown out of office, because they do not respect the rule of law. They do not respect the Zimmerman jury’s verdict. Obama first called Trayvon Martin his imaginary son, and then his statement about the verdict was to honor Martin. Obama should have told the nation to respect the jury’s verdict. He should have used respectful words toward both the Martin and Zimmerman families. The Martin shooting was a tragedy, but that tragedy plays out every day in Chicago, and the president is silent about black-on-black shootings and killings. I hope someone has the guts to tell Obama to shut his pie hole before he starts a race war in this country.
    Thank you for your time.

      Great letter, lyn. Unfortunately, there are so many people (up to and including the administration) that will profit both politically and financially from having a race war that no one will listen to reason. I have been aghast at how this whole thing has played out – anyone who paid attention to the actual sequence of events that night (as well as to the previous history of both the Martin and Zimmerman families) would find it obvious that the only “profiling” involved was the doing of the race-baiters who wanted to set George Zimmerman up as a pawn in their larger scheme. I hope that he is safe and that the idiots screaming for his head will forget about this as soon as something shinier comes along.

    I think I like Mondays. I usually have them off from work. Of course, by the time Monday comes around, my home life has fallen apart so badly, it takes me two days to put it all back together. Today is no different, hubby is feeling neglected and wants me to make pot roast, the kitchen is covered with dirty dishes, the dogs are begging for a walk.

    Maybe I hate Mondays after all πŸ™‚

    I stopped working in ’96, so I hate weekends more than Mondays now. Not sure why, probably nothing on t.v. πŸ˜€ I voted neutral.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Koffler nails Harry Reid !!!

    God, we need to take the Senate back from these idiots, but the GOP will figure out a way to lose it again, just hoping they can keep the House.

    For 31 years hubby had Thursday/Friday off…….so Monday was actually Wednesday for us. I voted neutral.

    Since this is an open thread…….I have a bit of a dilemma. A neighbor issue again, same jackass…..but you guys are good with suggestions.

    I think my neighbor buried one of his kid’s dead pets in my yard. I thought it was odd the other day when I took out the trash; his daughter was kneeling down in front of an area of trees in the middle of my side yard. This area is an oval of several trees with some plants, a bird bath and feeder.

    His kids play in my yard ALL the time because they have such a small yard. What was odd is that she was asking her father who was standing by her in my yard to carve something in one of my trees. He told her they couldn’t carve anything in my tree. I put the trash in my trash can, turned and looked over at him with a look like WTH are you doing in my yard AGAIN and don’t you dare carve up my trees. I assumed she wanted to carve her initials in my tree or something, a grave site NEVER crossed my mind.

    Yesterday I cut my grass and I discovered at the edge of this treed area what looks to be perhaps a grave. There is a flat stone about 3 or 4 inches wide and about 7 inches long. Surrounding the large flat stone are small round stones like river rock creating an area about a foot and a half long by about two feet.

    SOOOOOOO what would you do?? Just remove the stones? Dig up the area to see what is there?? Go confront the jackass and ask him what is there?? Ignore it and consider it fertilizer???

    I just think it’s rude to bury something in your neighbor’s yard, especially without asking. Do you all agree? Am I just being picky??

    • votermom says:


      edit – seriously, I’m speechless. No advice but that is way over the bounds.

    • elliesmom says:

      I agree what he did was rude- and very wrong, but the loss of a pet is traumatic to a child. I’d talk to him about it, but not with his daughter around. I’d let him know there are crematorium for pets that are very reasonably priced, and who will return the ashes to you. Even a very small yard can handle ashes or they can be kept in a container. Then I’d let this pet rest in peace.

    • Perfect place to park an old broken down RV. πŸ™‚
      Is it a good place for a mulch stack? Or incinerator? Or maybe stake it out for a future wading pool, etc., and see what happens the next few nights.
      I feel sorry fir the little girl. Creepy dads are no fun.

      • Somebody says:

        RVs aren’t allowed in my neighborhood 49er. So that option is out.

        I could put a mulch stack there, none of the other ideas would probably work, maybe a compost bin?

        We tagged these trees when our lot was cleared so we could create a buffer. This area is a large oval with four live oaks and a magnolia tree that were all growing naturally. We just hand cleared under the trees, added some plants and mulch.

        My property extends about 4 or 5 feet on the other side of this area, but I really only go over there if I’m cutting the grass. It provides a buffer for part of my backyard and the trees somewhat block my neighbor’s view of my backyard from their upstairs.

        That’s why I keep the area and the trees even though it cuts down on my usable yard. We had no idea who our one neighbor was going to be when this house was built, the buffer was “just in case”. Right after he moved in one of the workers for my builder told me that my neighbor had complained that he couldn’t use his telescope to look in my backyard or at my house because of my trees………CREEPY!

        From that point forward we’ve made it a point to not only keep the trees but to let the branches grow down low as much as possible to add to the buffer. In fact I’ve decided to plant a camelia in the middle of this area to add to the buffer because we had to trim some of the lower branches due to them getting too close to his house.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Creepy dads are no fun.

        My kids would disagree.

    • Somebody says:

      OK so you guys agree that this is very rude. I felt like it was. I would never do something like that.

      I don’t want to dig up whatever it is either, not really.

      These people can’t keep a pet, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. They had a de-clawed cat they once left outside to fend for itself for 3 weeks while they were in Europe…..I fed the cat. Actually that cat lasted 3 or 4 years, the longest of any pet they’ve had.

      I saw the little girl with a kitten about a week ago, so maybe the kitten didn’t survive??? Otherwise I’m guessing some kind of rodent type pet……guinea pig, hamster, gerbil??? Maybe a bird?? I haven’t seen any puppies over there lately. They had a white german shepherd but couldn’t take care of it so they got rid of it after about 3 months.

      • votermom says:

        It’s not just rude to me … from my culture (and I’m guessing a lot of other cultures) putting a grave or a dead animal in someone’s property smacks of wishing bad luck/bad juju/etc. As 49er says it’s creepy.

        As to what you can do — nothing beats a fence for making good neighbors.

      • helenk3 says:

        is there any way to block the entrance they are using to get into your yard? a large bush with stickers or something like that?

      • Lulu says:

        I would dump a sack of lime on it so it doesn’t smell. Then I would attach the lime sack label on a stake set in the bed so everyone knows what the big white spot is.

    • DandyTiger says:

      It’s your yard, I would just dig it up and toss it. That’s just frick’ing insane. I wouldn’t be nice and leave it. Fuck that.

      • DandyTiger says:

        If you want to ease into it, I’d put something big and heavy right over that spot. Trash pile, pile of wood, etc. Just to mark your space a while. Then later move that stuff and dig it up. Neighbor confrontations aren’t fun.

        • Lulu says:

          What is to confront? It is his yard. Tell him mind your own business I’m looking for the sprinkler head you loon.

        • Lulu says:

          You Dandy Tiger are a nicer person than me. Putting a big planter upside down over the grave with voodoo symbols on it might be a better idea. I’m just kidding.

    • piper says:

      If you have a home owners association, talk to them first about the situation. If not, call the non-emergency police number and discuss situation and possible solutions.
      Given how volatile people are today I would just let it go – whatever he buried will eventually decompose (gross I know).

      • piper says:

        And yes he was rude and uncaring.

      • votermom says:

        Lawyer q – isn’t there some kind of legal issue possible where if you allow a neighbor access to your land it’s not that easy to revoke it later?

        • Karma says:

          Excellent point, Votermom.

          My in-laws lost approx a 10′ wide strip of land to a neighbor who built just a small segment of his driveway on their land. They dealt with it immediately and still just gave up the land since the guy was such a jerk. From the start the whole thing was an intentional theft of their land. The neighbor was an attorney who was warned prior to grading and building the driveway. But he didn’t like the driveway that would fit on his land so he tried to swamp them with bs.

          Anyway, taking into consideration that Somebody’s neighbors are so bad with animals that more graves should be expected. Just due to the easement concerns it would be wise to deal with it immediately.

          Clearly, Somebody’s neighbor is sneaky, but he might have other plans as well.

  13. helenk3 says:

    prosecutors zimmerman didn’t have the courage to take the stand.

    are these people really lawyers?

    they do not seem to believe in the jury system and the rights of the defendant.

    keep pouring gasoline on a simmering fire

  14. helenk3 says:

    the other trial that is going on, that msm is NOT covering. you know the work place violence one .

    the one that does not fit into backtrack and bunch’s agenda

  15. votermom says:

    Queen Mooch is insane

  16. helenk3 says:

    he is right this trial should be taught in law school as a perversion of justice by the prosecutors and how to avoid it

  17. piper says:

    The focus will soon switch to right here in Milwaukee where an old white man shot a 17 year old AA boy. I’m not arguing for any side but the man was undergoing chemotherapy which has the side effects of chemo brain causing impaired judgement / thinking.

  18. Anthony says:

    Because…… BUSH!!!
    It took another bloated gasbag (Martin Bashir) only 2 days to bring Dubbya into the equation. If you can stand listening to his voice (it almost killed me), watch the vid. If not, take my word for it.

  19. helenk3 says:

    he better pray no one get hurt or killed. he got away with getting people killed before , do not think it will happen this time

    • yttik says:

      Apparently it isn’t “justice” they really want, it’s revenge. They got “justice” at the cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars, much media attention, and nearly two years of judicial process. A jury heard all the evidence and ruled Zimmerman not guilty. That is “justice.”

      What they seem to want is a public hanging, revenge, a Nobel Peace Prize, I don’t know, something, but it sure ain’t “justice.”

      • mcnorman says:

        Revenge for what? Honestly, for what? I’m sick of this crap. Where is the hate for that despicable pos Hasan?

        Now, comes the trial for his wife. Again, the prosecution is overreaching. Add the DOJ and NAACP. What, are they trying to kill GZ by giving him a heart attack?

      • Lulu says:

        They want money. It is about suing for money. If there were no money there would be no interest. Black young people killing other black young people doesn’t pay. There has to be a pocket to sue like the police, or government agency or a neighborhood watch guy with an HOA or there is no interest. It is always about money unfortunately.

        • People like Sharpton, and even Tracy Martin and Sabryna Fulton, want money, sure, but there is a much bigger dynamic at play here. The larger black community that is extremely pro-Trayvon and the whites, Hispanics, and other races who support them, want cultural permission for the continued misbehavior of certain segments of the black (nd potentially Hispanic) population, without penalty. They want the role of oppressor, and it’s the only way to even the score as far as they are concerned.

          Of course this flies in the face of what Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights Movement was about. Not only was their approach professional and calm–in contrast to this modern movement–he was on the record saying that seeking to flip the roles was not just. They would, by example, show white racists how to behave with integrity and fairness.

        • Lulu says:

          I’m sure you are right about the cultural permission to have their own rules of behavior that have nothing to do with current law. But they also want someone else to pay for it. It is adolescent reasoning. They are amazingly childlike to those of us who have gone through the phases with children into adulthood. I’ll do anything I want and you have the responsibility and honor of paying for me to be an ass. As a society we have to say no.

        • Internal Exile says:

          “I’ll do anything I want and you have the responsibility and honor of paying for me to be an ass.”

          Sounds like a sweet deal. How can I get in on that? 😈

      • Yep. This is an attempted lynching if ever there was one.

  20. helenk3 says:

    FOX tv
    holder to speak on zimmerman case

  21. helenk3 says:

    holder’s BFF the black panthers declare war over zimmerman verdict

  22. helenk3 says:

    holden on now

    • votermom says:

      • Lulu says:

        Corey supposedly has recorded an HLN hour long interview and declared Zimmerman a “murderer” and Martin was his “prey”. She also claimed that the prosecution has lots of DNA evidence. It is on tonight. Is this normal for a prosecutor to go on a crazy like this? Will the bar committees go after her for not respecting a jury’s verdict? She is spitting on our jury system for what reason?

        • Internal Exile says:

          If the prosecution had all that evidence which would have landed Zimmermann in the Crossbar Hilton, why didn’t they use it?

          It sounds like Corey is calling herself incompetent. 😈

      • helenk3 says:

        sounds like he is measuring the rope for the lynching

        • Lulu says:

          I hope he has his tickets for Peru. Then he can say go fuck yourself in Quechua.

        • Internal Exile says:

          Any Quechua speakers here who know what that would be?

          Probably something an English speaker would sprain his or her tongue πŸ˜› trying to pronounce. :mrgreen:
