Do you think Zimmerman will ever be able to live a normal life again?

His life is going to be a living hell. He might be a hero on fox and in white wing world but a month from now he will be a pariah. He will be looking over his shoulder everywhere he goes paranoid, and stressed. Yes it will be hell on earth. This is not going to end well for him in the long run.

Do you think he will ever be free to walk around and feel safe again.

My rich boss got a survey from the NRCC

I write his checks for his bills and fill out things for him. He got a NRCC survey with 31 questions. He didn't fill it out but on the last page they asked for donations of $35 to other. There were three places you can check. 1) yes! I am supporting the nrcc today to help reinforce our republican majority for the fast approaching 2014 elections when we will face aggressive attacks from President Obama's political machine. 2) I cannot pledge my support for this year, but would like to include a contribution of $15 to fund this survey and it's tabulation. Thank you for including my opinions.3) No, I want Barack Obama to have complete control of Wasinhton, and a democratic majority in the house to rubber stamp his liberal agenda.

My boss checked box 3 and wrote "not a republican but an American". He also put in zero in the donation boss. I was so thrilled. I asked him if i could fill out the survey and I went to town making sure I answered all the questions as a liberal. My boss told me he donated money to a friend from college who was republican and now he gets mail from the heritage foundation and recently from the George bush library of which he wrote, "0" you owe us!

If anyone is interested I will post some of the questions they are so loaded with bull. Should house republicans exercise vigorous congressional oversight to expose the real costs of Obamacare?

The only question about jobs was the approval of keystone pipeline jobs and asking if the republican position of lowering tax rates will promote economic growth and job creAtion. The same old shit that has never worked. They are so out of touch and evil.

WTF MSNBC why are you discussing how the republicans can win in 2016 by giving them advice??????

I watched part of Up with Chris Kornacke this AM. He has this panel discussion on why the republicans were for immigration reform but now their media controllers realize that the voters will probably vote Democratic. They talked about possible ways the republicans could expand their white vote to still be in power. I was angry why are they giving the republicans ideas on how to improve their outreach to white people? We don't need MSNBC to do the job that Fox has been doing. I'm not going to record this program anymore. Just goes to show you how corporate MSNBC really is. Watch Ring of Fire instead on FSTV that is a real progressive voice who won't be shrilling for the corporate GOP.

The only ones being real on MSNBC is Melissa and Ed on the weekend shows. I haven't watched the Karen Finney show because I am burned out on politics by then. But this show UP really irked me this AM

I guess we have to get used to white power politics come in fruition as the GOP strategy in 2014 and 2016. They'll be a lot of white hoods peeking out of white people's collars in the near future but something tells me it's not going to work for the GOP. A lot of our young voters grew up in a multicultural society and don't have the race hangups as their grandparents.

The dismaying thing about growing old as a women is that men no longer look at you as someone

They want to fuck but as the women they look at as mother figure or the old lady they'll help cross the street. When you're an older women you become invisible as a sex object. I got to say I like being anonymous now. I always had a nice figure until menopause still slim in a middle aged way. I can see how ex models and actresses lose their minds when they get old. They were so used to being worshipped for their looks. They never grew into their sense of self. I 'm actually comfortable growing old. Everyday is a new adventure.

A vote for republicans is a vote to lose ones rights

A vote for republicans is a vote to lose women's rights

A vote for republicans is a vote to turn the US into a religious theocracy

A vote for republicans is a vote against workers rights

A vote for republicans is a vote not rebuild our infrastructure, raise the minimum wage, have safe food and a clean environment.

A vote for republican is a vote to privatize our public schools, police, firefighters and postal service.

We should spread this far and wide between now and November 2014 to our friends, relatives, social media just get the message out the republicans are not for the people and they will take more of our rights away if they take over all three branches.

Any women voting republican should have her head examined.

Ironic the SC took away voting rights from minorities and gave marriage rights to Gays

It's bittersweet for me. I live in San Francisco I am happy for my LGBT friends but so sad over the lost of the VRA. Now it appears the republican have a lockdown on our country electorally. So sad and so happy at the same time sigh

Switched over to Fox after I heard news about them gutting the voting rights act. They were gleeful

It is a sad day for minorities in this country. I hope the backlash in 2014 will be so fierce they don't know what hit them.

I am also very angry and want to do something about it but living in California where we are a solid blue state I feel helpless I can't help my fellow Americans preserve the right to vote without the extreme right trying to taking it away.

I suspect the next attack will be on women's voting rights since they are now being nvolved in our uteruses in several states. It wouldn't surprise me if they tried to do this. That said the 5 who voted will be scorned forever in history and they will have lost the respect of whole lot of folks. They are mud in my mind now. Citizens United was horrible this is a slap in the face to minorities in this country. A really sad day.

Will there be massive riots and protests if the Supreme Ct rules against the voting rights act?

And affirmative action?

After watching Chris Hayes covering the origin of how this got to the court and the shadowy funding as a minority myself who is older I will take to the streets if they rule against people of color.

Right now in this country we are a tinder box. Women losing their reproductive rights,people being pissed about NSA surveillance, lousy paying jobs, congress voting to cut Snap. I see major cities going ballistic liken Brazil.

We are tired of our congress not addressing our needs, no job legislation but willing to spend 30 billion on a fence instead of rebuilding our infrastructure. I can the the wildfire of people so angry they explode.

My sister who is not political junkie told me yesterday that 2014 will be a blood bath

For republicans. Last year I was freaking out about whether President Obama would get re-elected my sister told me that Romney was a mean person and would not get elected. Also she told me Meg Whitman would not get elected Governor of California.

My older sister listens to NPR only and watches MSNBC occasionally but reads a lot of mainstream magazines. I am the political junkie and am constantly fretting about the republicans. The one thing she said is people don't like mean politicians and this whole tea party thing will blow up in the GOP faces as services get cut and people look around their communities with people suffering. She said if you watch the regular news the only people talking bad stuff is republicans, President Obama is more optimistic.

I hope she is right.
