on keeping the faith

I wanted to write something about what is going on right
now in Our Country - you know - the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman
thing.

Right off - I will say what I think happened - and that is that
Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin - in cold blood.

BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION. I WASN'T THERE. I WONDER IF WE
WILL EVER FIND OUT THE - TRUTH.

I watched several different coverages throughout the day and
tonight - and here's what I saw - and was encouraged by:

I saw people speaking out - in a CIVILIZED way - saying what
they thought happened. I heard Black people speaking out about
their concern for the mindset of America against young Black men.
I read blogs on which white people gave their concerns about
what had happened - and the reasons for their concern.

I was truly encouraged by ALL of the people I heard speak -
BECAUSE I WAS WATCHING AMERICANS IN ACTION.

And what I felt I was seeing - were the NEW AMERICANS THAT
CLINT EASTWOOD SPOKE ABOUT JUST BEFORE THE SECOND HALF OF
THE SUPER BOWL. : ]

Even though the 2012 Presidential Elections haven't even taken
place - I think we already have started that GREAT SECOND HALF -
that Clint Eastwood was talkin' about - and ya gotta love Clint
Eastwood - folks. I mean - he's Dirty Harry - isn't he?

Seriously - I think we are gonna be ok.

AND I'LL GLADLY STAND UP NEXT TO ANYONE I SAW ON TV TODAY -
THAT SPOKE OUT - and that goes for all ya folks over at Z's
blog - too.


God Bless Americans.

and

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ! ! !

:]








sorry folks but I just couldn't stop myself...

Just as you find reasons for optimism, I find reasons for renewed pessimism.

If you lose your argument in the Supreme Court, do you really have to try take down the COURT, too, by demonizing the conservative justices and everyone who argued against your case? Could it just "possibly" be that you didn't have a good case?

Ther - As I write this - two police officers are standing by waiting to take me 'in' for a psychological evaluation. When I will return- it's anybody's guess.

I love you guys.

take care, Sue.

Scalia has indicated he will rule any way he wants whether it contradicts his previous opinions. Law doesn't matter as much as ideology to Salia, Roberts, Thomas and Alito.

Zimmerman is a liar. His lawyer claimed he was attacked. Had his face smashed on the sidewalk and back of his head injured and a broken nose. Video of Zimmerman shows no injuries.

So.... what happened?

nicrap said...

Yes ... what? What!

-FJ said...

Obervation time is my guess... not a "good" thing.

If you ever want to violate someone's rights... just get. them declared "incompetent"... then you can do anything you want to them. Mental patients are the worlds penultimate "political prisoners". In Oregon, they've learned to speak "Klingon".

nicrap said...

Somebody should tell them, you don't hurt a mocking-bird! Never!

Thersites said...

It is a sin, no doubt about it.

Sunshine said...

Whatever is happening, Sue, I wish you the best.

Stay strong, and hold on to that faith that you speak of so often!

Speedy G said...

Come back, Sue!

The judges of normality are decidedly insane!

sue hanes said...

'take care Sue'

Thanks - Speedy.

'Come back, Sue!'

I am back - Speedy - and I am just
fine - better and more determined than ever.

Ya know what they say - doncha - Speedy?

What doesn't kill ya - makes ya
stronger.

And I'm feeling pretty strong - right now.

sue hanes said...

Ther - Oh, I have a good case - alright - and I intend to take it to the SC - if it comes to that.

:]

sue hanes said...

'The judges of normality are decidedly insane.'

Indeed they are - Speedy.

You know what they say - doncha?

'Everybody is crazy - except me.

And that is how I look at it. That
worked for me.

But I Believe That We - The Sane and the Unsane - can work together to make this World A Better Place.

Isn't that what Michael Jackson tried to teach us - before we killed him?

sue hanes said...

Truth - I wonder if there is a cell down there in Gitmo - with his name on it.

Thanks Truth - for stoppin' buy.

sue hanes said...

The thing is - nicrarp - I told the nurse - and even the doctor - that they had better be careful not to be mean to me - or when I got out I would blow the whistle on them. What they call payback.

So they backed of - and then I took the meds anyway.

Ya see - nicrap - ya never want to fool around with the man who owns the plane.

nicrap said...

Good to see you back, Sue. And in form, too. :D

sue hanes said...

Why hello - nicrap.

Not only am I in form - nicrap - but I'm in GOOD form - if I must say so myself.

and it's all because of you.
