Responsibility Is The Key!

Responsibility Is The Key!

Al Ritter 

We’ve heard so much in the last 4 weeks about “Justice for Trayvon” when we should have been praying for truth and a fair trial. People who claim that there was no “Justice for Trayvon” either hadn’t watched the entire trial or they never wanted a fair trial to begin with.
George Zimmerman never disputed the fact that he in fact did kill Trayvon; he accepted his responsibility in Martin’s death. Racist pundits have concluded that Trayvon would never have been killed if Zimmerman had been carrying a gun. It is also true that Trayvon would never have been killed had he not started the physical part of the fight. Martin was continually portrayed as a “child” and in the last few days of the trial the prosecution even futilely tried to have child abuse charges added to the docket, even though Martin outweighed Zimmerman by 30 lb. and towered 5 inches over him.
This action along with the unprecedented action of the judge to add a lesser charge of manslaughter added to the possible guilty verdicts showed what a baseless case the prosecution actually had.
What has not been addressed is the responsibility the Martin family had in their own son’s death. The parents did not act responsibly in their son’s upbringing. They stood idly by while Trayvon acted more and more like a common criminal, through his drug use, his numerous criminal thefts and, his well- documented increasingly violent nature.
We watched as time after time the judge in the trial denied motions for the defense to show Trayvon’s true nature to the jury. Instead the media’s portrayal of the innocent teenager who only went out for a bag of Skittles stood. Not once did I hear in the trial how it was pouring rain that cold night at 3 AM. Or why his father was or wasn’t aware of his absence in the house at that hour. Not once did we hear about Trayvon’s thuggish posts to his Facebook and Twitter accounts. With only two days left it came to light that the two things martin was carrying that night were a bag of skittles and an Arizona watermelon iced tea, the two main ingredients only missing Robitussin cough syrup to make a powerful and potentially lethal drug commonly used by Rappers and the “culture.” The judge actually had to struggle with allowing the medical examiner to inform the jury that he had THC in his system the night of his death.
We got to see a massive amount of denying responsibility in this trial, enough to go around everywhere with the exception of ONE person….George Zimmerman, he had already accepted his part in Martin’s death.
Trayvon’s parents have denied their part in all this as before the trial have even begun; they had already sought to trademark all phrases having to do with Trayvon’s name in an effort to make money on their son’s death. In the last few days of the Zimmerman’s trial they made a settlement with the Home Owner’s Association in Zimmerman’s complex for over $1 million dollars, although that amount has been sealed by the courts.
Lastly the one who was most responsible for Trayvon’s death was Trayvon himself. Had he not snuck up behind Zimmerman and sucker punched him, the deadly spiral would not have begun. Martin supporters claimed that had Zimmerman not followed Martin this never would have happened. To this claim I say………following someone is NOT against the law……. The committing second degree battery however is! Zimmerman’s attorneys chose to use self-defense as his defense in the case not the stand your ground law, and that is exactly what it was……….and the jury of 6 women also said the same thing.
Because Eric Holder and Barack Obama aren’t satisfied with the outcome and vow to press on only makes a mockery of our legal system……… either believe in it fully or you don’t.

The Gift Of Multiple Scandals.

The Gift Of Multiple Scandals.
Kevin Bryant 

The latest additions to all the Obama scandals since he first entered office may just be the break this administration was seeking. 

Overwhelming the system doesn’t just work for damaging the U.S. financial system. Benghazi, NSA, IRS, AP, GSA, Fast & Furious and the list goes on. There is not a single entity in the government which is not controlled by an Obama puppet that has the time and resources to pursue all these issues. Sure, Congress is “holding hearings” but when they don’t hold people accountable who are basically giving them the finger instead of telling the truth, what good is congress doing?  

Even the press won’t cover all these issues. Mostly because they are nothing more than an extension of the forever ongoing Obama campaign, but even the few that do not support him do not have the resources or connections to properly pursue them to their ends. The days of Woodward and Bernstein are over.  

Local news coverage on these issues has all but completely grinded to a halt. Not because these issues no longer exist, rather there are too many to cover in their short period of air time. Once the local news stop covering an issue, the roar dies down to a few chirping crickets and the people lose interest. Many will fall into the inevitable false realization that these issues have been resolved somehow and they must have just “missed it”.  

With all these different scandals and issues presented, it’s easy to for someone like me to feel overwhelmed.  There are just too many different issues floating around to really concentrate on a single one. Personally, I have opinions on all of them but with my own 40 hour a week job and trying to actually have a life on top of that, it doesn’t leave much time to write. Then trying to decide which issue to talk about becomes a big glob of thoughts that seem to bounce from one to another and another. So what is my end result, I get blocked and can’t write anything on a single subject. This is likely true with many other amateur conservative bloggers who do the same juggling act as well. As for the liberal bloggers, they are still too busy digging up lame examples of conservatives doing what the liberals are doing and then spinning the facts to make it all appear that this administration is justified in all of its actions because “the right does it too”. 

Simply put, I have writer’s block right now. As I stated earlier, there are just so many things going on, it’s impossible to pick something, attempt to write apiece on it and be able to stay on subject. 

A challenge to all who read this, send me a 1 or 2 paragraph or even just a couple of sentences email on any topic of your choice that you have strong conviction on. Send them to and help me get out of this funk. Please title your emails “U Asked 4 It” so I don’t mistake them for junk and delete them.

What's Next?

What’s Next?
Kevin Bryant
It has been evident for the past several years that there has been no one at home in the white house. The entire Obama administration has repeatedly claimed to not have knowledge of anything until it has been reported in the press. How can someone be the leader of the free world when he can’t even lead his own administration?
Leadership in the GOP has been absent for years as well. What does it say about the GOP when they spend millions of dollars on focus groups to tell them what they should already know? Are these people too dumb to understand what their own supporters have been yelling at them for years?
Military leadership has been absent for so long now who can really remember when they had real leadership. I think it was actually under the Reagan administration. Starting with George H. W. Bush, the military went from being a force built on principle and cohesion to one of political correctness and test subjects for social change. How does one lead their fighting forces when they are too busy kissing the backsides of the politicians while covering their own?
So much of America has been without real leadership for so long it is a miracle we have still managed to survive this long. Leadership is not doing what is popular or politically correct. It ‘s doing what is right in spite of popularity and political correctness. We have gone from a nation that put our faith in God, modeled our laws after God’s teachings and believing man (and woman) is better served by thinking for themselves to a nation that has demanded that God be removed from every aspect of our lives, our beliefs and our principles.
Our currency has on it E Pluribus Unum  or Out Of Many, One. From a time even before this nation was founded, people went through enormous struggles to come to America and be “An American”. Now we have Americans that don’t want to be Americans and instead of moving to other nations, they wish to change this one. America today is so divided by so many lines I have no clue as to how many divisions I actually fall under. Here is just a few of those fault lines that  America is ripping itself apart by: I am male, I am white, I am a Christian, I am 45 & 50 years of age, I make $XXXX a month, I am a conservative, I am employed in the private sector……… get the point?
Our currency also has printed on it “In God We Trust”. Today, about 30% of Americans place more trust and faith in the American Government than they do in God. We have gone from “Love Thy Neighbor” to “Spy On Thy Neighbor”. We have gone from “Seek and Ye Shall Find” to “Government Shall Provide”. We have gone from "Rights Endowed By Our Creator” to “Rights Granted By Our Politicians”, then we, as Americans, have the gall to ask God to “Bless America”? Would it not be more appropriate at this point to ask God to “Save America” before it comes to “God, Please Just Put Us All Out Of Our Misery”.
We have sunk from a nation of strong principled leadership to popularity leadership to no leadership in all forms of government and politics. What’s next?
