    Black Americans are still recoiling from the recent gunshot death of a Florida teenager. There are Hispanics, now, in America. There is notorious gun violence in Mexico. Apparently there are some there, too(?). Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton, and probably Government Motors think they are all from Detroit(?)!

    President Obama went overboard in his recent attack on the GOP, instead of just bashing Romney and Ryan. McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Santorum, Bachmann, Abe Lincoln, Reagan, Paul, Paul, et al., are worth the lampooning. He did leave out, however, Bush II, Term I, of the Great Disaster-Making.

    OBAMA: "At the beginning of the last decade, the wealthiest Americans received a huge tax cut in 2001 and another huge tax cut in 2003. We were promised that these tax cuts would lead to faster job growth. They did not. The wealthy got wealthier. We would expect that. The income of the top 1 percent has grown by more than 275 percent over the last few decades to an average of $1.3 million a year. But prosperity sure didn't trickle down."

    THE FACTS: You wouldn't know from his statement that taxes in 2001 and 2003 were cut across the board, not just for the wealthy. President George W. Bush's package trimmed rates for all taxable income levels, doubled the child tax credit and substantially raised the amount of money people can put in individual retirement accounts. The political fight these days is over whether to keep extending the tax cuts for the wealthiest. Obama supports keeping the lower rates for the rest and has pushed similar tax cuts of his own — excluding the wealthiest, however.

    So you wouldn't know from the fact-checkers just how abysmally wrong the United States is about its laws and government. Florida refugee, Zimmerman, for example: Is more likely thought to be Jewish, or at least black.

    South Chicago aside, The Bush Tax Cuts didn't work. When Obama came into office, the Ivy League Stimulus mainly went to bail-out the state and local government payrolls that caused it all. Specifically, the causal teachers got bailed out. Bush II, Term II, had mainly bailed out some banking executives: By comparison(?)!

    And still they teach, and still get paid: And Nobel Norway sends them prizes.

    Associated Press members, even keep the money: Failing to at all help out humanity!
