Desecrating Trayvon's Hallowed Ground

Trayvon could have been my son. My son could have been Trayvon.

Last Friday, a cold-blooded murderer was set free and now he gets his gun back from a state governed by cold-blooded murderers.

Note to self and everyone else who has children: your sons...and daughters...are not safe in this land of cold-blooded murderers.

Ban handguns now and end racial injustice...and put George Zimmerman where he belongs...behind bars...for life.

'Nuff said.

Woodchuck

I shouldn’t' be picking on Clarence Thomas. There were, after all, four other men who voted to strike down a cornerstone of established civil rights law, Supreme Court Invalidates Key Part of Voting Rights Act. Still, he seems to have an almost pathological zeal in his pursuit to roll back the clock in this country to a simpler time, say 60 years ago, when all was white, I mean right in the world, and everyone knew their place.

His and the other "justices'" decision now gives the Southern states in question the green light to break out their poll taxes from mothballs to re-disenfranchise (if that's a word) people of color unlucky enough to live in their domains. Sure, they'll dress up this blatant effort to rob people of color of their rights as high-minded efforts to prevent voter fraud, and they'll probably use their white hoods and robes to do the dressing.

Fortunately, Attorney General Eric Holder has promised that President Obama and the Department of Justice will vigilantly contest any such effort to suppress voting rights...assuming they’re not too busy assassinating American citizens overseas without any due process or hunting down whistleblowers for revealing unconstitutional US government programs. I'm certainly feeling reassured; makes me feel like partying like it's nine-teen-fifty-nine!
