    Never did I suggest that 100% of the people that are attending these rallies and supporting the arrest were doing it for a just cause, I was saying that a majority are and you deny that claim.

    Sounds like a good idea Daven

    So why do you put genuinely angry in quotations, are you saying that nobody can or is allowed to be genuinely angry anymore, because you think they'll just be pretending to join the fad or theyre trying to be 'cool'

    Better that people think its 'cool' and bring attention to the issue rather than ignoring it completely, yes it may be disingenuous but at least its bringing attention to the light

    To you its a majority, in reality its a minority

    [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"]i completely understand the hate for the media, i have it too

    but bottom line, you have an unarmed teen shot to death for just walking through a town.

    its justified. Just because the media blows most of the time, doesn't mean that its propaganda machine 100% of the time.[/quote]

    so it's justified to have bounties on this guy before he's even been convicted, it's justified for the media to stir up hatred for this person before he's even had his trial? it's justified for innocent people who have nothing to do with Zimmerman to fear for their lives as crazy bang on their doors and demand that they produce him? no I don't think that's true Matt, I think this is all unjustified, I think the man deserves a fair trail...and if (only if!) he is convicted of the crime, then sure, hate him all you want...but until he's convicted I think it's dangerous to report on him as though he were.


    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]Your just as bad as those who buy into the propaganda machine about every little thing (ya know, those people spreading awareness about every ****ing thing that they know nothing about on facebook), because you take the complete opposite extreme and just oppose anything that comes out on it.

    I think I am pretty balanced Matt, I think society has gone of the deep end that's the problem....

    I mean come on man... this guy shot a kid in cold blood. He had NOTHING on him and this guy isn't even suppose to have a weapon on him.

    I would considered you probably the lease balanced out of everybody in here when it comes to these debates.

    well thats kinda racist in itself that you seem to think its only black people doing it.

    MAybe around here, but there are plenty of white people like that too.

    And while there are bottom feeders (always will and always have) most are people that actually aren't doing it to just abuse the system and get a free ride. Thats another political agenda of news reporting

    "Give a man a fish and he won't starve for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he won't starve for his entire life."

    the problem with our current social welfare systems is they force the poor to become dependent on them, the government gives them fish everyday for dinner....

    If the government instead concentrated on teaching them how to fish (aka become productive members of society) it would in the end be more cost effective, it would work better for all involved, the reason they don't do it? the poor vote goes to democrats, it ALWAYS does, because they have convinced the poor that the republicans don't care about them and will take away their fish......but if the democrates really cared, they would be teaching the poor how to fish so that regardless of who was in power....they wouldn't have to worry about where the food was coming from...

    (do you get me?)
