If a friend of yours attended a rally for TM

How would it affect your relationship with that friend?

I'd think they have no ability to think for themselves and would tell them so; most likely starting an argument that would result in us not talking for a long time.

I would want to know why and how they had made the conclusions they had come to.

I know a few TM sympathizers who are still on the "he's a racist" kick. I told them to turn off MSNBC, remove their head from their *****, and when they gain a comprehension level above a 4th grader's, I'll introduce them to the Florida self defense statutes. I also ask for any evidence supporting the racist claims, which causes them to shut up.

I had the same thots with a cousin of mine back in '95 with the OJ "trial". He still prattles on about O.J.s' "innocense",so even in the rare occasions I do see him, I never bring the subject up.

Fla's self defence statutes that the kangroos trashed at every turn. The scumbags tried every slimey trick and lie they could use and, WHOOOOOOOOOOOPS! The jury relied on common sense. Dang it all anyway!!! No "justice" for thug wanabes who get shot commiting attempted murder.

I think the silence in the black community about black on black crime is telling. Where's the outrage? Where's the marches and protests? I'd love to see the statistics for Chicago for example, how many of those killed in the last year were white?

I don't have stupid friends; if he is that stupid it would have come out in other situations and we would have parted long ago.

This trial is the new intelligence test. Attending a rally for TM, means you failed the test.

Has this ******* country gone absolutely off its rocker?

Wouldn't change my opinion of them, since they are the same ones who voted for Obama twice. I can look past politics, but can understand those who wouldn't, which was how I used to be.

I have many friends with whom I strongly disagree about many things. That's fine. I don't need everyone to see the world as I do, I'm not Michael Bloomberg.

My liberal sister would probably go to a TM rally if there was one here.

I have had many friends of many different persuasions, many different opinions, but core values have always been similar.

Supporting a thug who committed assault when he had the option of calling the police speaks to core values.

To put it another way, I had a friend in high-school who died in a drunk driving accident. That he committed a criminal act was not in dispute. That his death was his own fault was not in dispute. That if things had gone differently he might have killed an innocent person was not in dispute. I still attended his memorial. I did PLENTY of dumb-feces at seventeen, some of it criminal. I survived by the grace of God, not any merit of mine. When a seventeen year old's mistake kills him, he has no opportunity to change course and become a decent man. I can understand simply seeing that as a tragedy, without condoning the young man's action. I certainly would not discard an otherwise good friend because they saw it that way.

No way would I have a "friend" that is that much of a blind fool.

So it's not possible that I'd be calling such a person "friend" in the first place.


Every day I remove cat turds from the litter box.
IMO those turds have more value to humanity than someone that would attend a rally for that dead punk.

GZ and TM made equally stupid decisions. One was as right as the other was wrong, so it's a wash. HH

I have a cousin who posted to facebook something like "oh no..." after the verdict was announced. But she is a little bit special so I tolerate her.

I get your point and can sympathize with it. However, there is a difference in attending a memorial for a teen that died doing something stupid and attending a rally meant to make a racial/political point.

Had I know TM, I would have gone to his memorial, but would not go to a rally supporting his stupidity...

Was there a rally your friends attending that blamed the tree your friend hit and calling for it to be cut down for killing your friend ?
