  • Many factors influence our changing climate
    Many scientists subscribe to the global warming theory (now called “climate change”), but science is not determined by consensus but by facts.
  • Take full advantage of preventive screenings
    The pink of breast cancer awareness month has faded away, but that doesn't mean we should become complacent about the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer – or any other cancer, for that matter.
  • Violence victims deserve a holiday
    After observing another Veterans Day go by, I was happy to see how this holiday has positively progressed over time. A lot of TV commercials had messages honoring our vets.

Web letter by Rich Polk: Zimmerman verdict fails to fulfill prevailing left agenda

Enough! What the H is wrong with this country? I’ll tell you: The USA has become so emotionally attached to the far-left liberal philosophy of “anything goes” as long as it portrays blacks as victims that reason and logic are ignored and “facts” conveniently spun to fit the far left agenda. What a pathetic indictment on the current state of affairs.

Anyone with a lick of common sense knows that the prosecution did not come close to proving its case against George Zimmerman. Why all the uproar? It’s again the liberal far left pushing its agenda of turning this country into a European nanny state.; to never miss an opportunity to create and exploit a crisis. The Trayvon Martin protests are only an excuse to raise hell, vandalize and promote leftist socialist causes.

Tell me – tell anyone! – Where is the outrage (an overworked word, for sure!) over the killings of blacks (by blacks) every single day in President Barack Obama’s sweet home Chicago? Not a peep from the left. There is absolute silence from the leftist mouthpieces like Reuters, AP (short for Administration Press), so-called mainstream TV and newspaper media, Black Caucus, Jackson, Sharpton, Holder, et. al. ad nauseum.

And why is that? Simple answer: In Chicago it’s black on black whereas the Left feeds on blacks as victims of whites, Hispanics and probably one of these days, Martians. The so called free press is in bed with the left, as are many of our educators, those in the legal system and celebrities, to list a few.

The country is in a mess, and the tweeters, Facebookers, texters and bloggers with way too much time on their hands are having a field day disrupting and destroying the very moral, social, governing, religious, personal privacy ideals that have been, up to now, the very foundations of the country.

Wake up, America, and see and acknowledge what is happening to me, to you, to “US”!
