George Zimmerman Murder Trial
Since I am currently living on the Big Island of Hawaii, in Hilo about a mile from bay front, I thought I would put my time to use (while hunkered down) blogging about a first hand account with Hurricane's Iselle and Julio. I plan to do this blog like an updating journal entry.
Laws that have broad bi-partisan support come few and far between, but the GI Bill that was passed in 1944 is one of those few bills that will bring together both the most ardently conservative and die hard liberal because it was a law designed to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country.
Folklore has said the moon cycles have a large role in humans and animals sleep methods and quality. With the next full moon approaching July 12th, I wonder how many people this will actually affect. There have been some very interesting studies done before, during, and just after full moon cycles that show this folklore to actually hold great weight.
If you have been keeping up with the news aggregate catch-all site 'Google News' lately, you will notice an uptick in what's "becoming the norm" as President Obama recently put it: school shootings. I know I've noticed it. And it got me wondering just how many school shootings have taken place lately? Feels more and more like an everyday, or at least every week occurrence lately.
A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck near Los Angeles early Monday morning, waking a lot of people up earlier than usual but not causing any immediate reports of major damages or injuries. While millions of Californians are breathing a collective sigh of relief, it is only a matter of time before the next big earthquake hits California.
The Australian Open for tennis has happened every year since it's inception back in 1905. And it's just like any other sporting event in the sense that headlines typically read very generic: So and so wins big. Upset in the making. Underdog prevails! The streak continues.. and so on and so forth. But this year, that's not really where the story was at.
With the mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin at the witness table, Senator Cruz stated in his prepared remarks that African Americans have benefited the most with the "Stand Your Ground" law in the state of Florida. The Senator used highly misleading statistics to explain his point and tried to gloss over some glaring discrepancies.
The right-wing media has bent over backwards to demean Trayvon Martin throughout the entirety of the George Zimmerman murder trial and has had a "race to the bottom" with regards to what they can come up with in smearing the deceased teenager in the worst way possible. From calling our first black President a racist for speaking on the case to glorifying Zimmerman's vigilante tactics as heroic, the conservative media has somehow turned a murder of an unarmed black teenager holding only skittles and iced tea into a reverse-racism case against a heroic neighborhood watch volunteer trying to keep his community safe.
