Racial divisions exposed by the trial of George Zimmerman for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida plays into the interests of the corporate sponsors of the Stand Your Ground laws. Paranoia over gun rights and the threat of hoodie-clad black youths running wild have helped the corporate fearmongers carve off a generation of former Democrats, particularly in the South, and lure them to a new home in the Republican Party, regardless of the corporations’ sociopathic positions on their economic well-being.That's right, the crackers in the boardrooms of America, puffing on cigars and blowing dollar-sign-shaped smoke rings, have come up with a brilliant plan to empower their Republican voter base: Turn racist Democrats into Republicans by codifying common law self defense principles in state statutes! Soon we can all go live on the space station and leave Matt Damon down here to die of cancer!*
I... I just... Look, I'm as much for ending the War on
