Wait I know.....dammit, whats the name of that golf course again...?
Lanie, you should know that no one here thinks anything of this other than wanting to see these three spend the rest of their miserable lives behnd bars with no way out but in a pine box
Because they are underage they dont face the death penalty.
Chief Ford said the teens had no motive other than to "make a name for themselves''.
Mr Hicks said Edwards kept a probation appointment for another matter at the courthouse just minutes after Lane was killed.
Wheres all the "gun laws" now , Lanie? Still going to tell us that "gun control works"?
President Obama said today the nation needs to do some "soul searching" over the shooting death of unarmed African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.

The people who used Trayvon Martin's death to advance gun control or racial grievances, the "never let a crisis go to waste" crowd, will continue their evil work if they are not exposed and called out for it. Activist needs to become a dirty word, an insult that stings, a toxic indictment of the kind of person who uses someone else's pain to advance their own agenda. They are the vultures of our society, and the carrion need to fight back.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

aspartame, which was developed by Searle Pharmaceuticals, run by Donald Rumsfeld while he was on Ronald Reagan's transition team in 1980/81. Aspartame (also known as Equal or Nutrasweet) was having a hard time with the FDA; in 1980 an FDA Board of Inquiry concluded that aspartame might cause brain tumors. The FDA banned aspartame, but Donald Rumsfeld vowed to use his political connections to get that changed:
Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president January 21, 1981. Rumsfeld, while still CEO at Searle, was part of Reagan's transition team. This team hand-picked Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., to be the new FDA commissioner. Dr. Hayes, a pharmacologist, had no previous experience with food additives before being appointed director of the FDA. On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan's inauguration, Reagan issued an executive order eliminating the FDA commissioners' authority to take action and Searle re-applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener. Hayes, Reagan's new FDA commissioner, appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry's decision. It soon became clear that the panel would uphold the ban by a 3-2 decision. So Hayes installed a sixth member on the commission, and the vote became deadlocked. He then personally broke the tie in aspartame's favor.
One of Hayes' first official acts as FDA chief was to approve the use of aspartame as an artificial sweetener in dry goods on July 18, 1981. In order to accomplish this feat, Hayes had to overlook the scuttled grand jury investigation of Searle, overcome the Bressler Report, ignore the PBOI's recommendations and pretend aspartame did not chronically sicken and kill thousands of lab animals. Hayes left his post at the FDA in November, 1983, amid accusations that he was accepting corporate gifts for political favors. Just before leaving office in scandal, Hayes approved the use of aspartame in beverages. After Hayes left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, he served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position as a high-paid senior medical advisor with Burson-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame....

So see, I can make your lunch political.
