Zimmerman had the rules of engagement wrong

Florida and 20 other states where the "Stand Your Ground And Shoot First" laws hold are turning America into a battleground. And it's a battleground where the rules of deadly force are even looser than Iraq and Afghanistan. As VoteVets.org points out, American and coalition forces in those countries have very specific things they must do before they can shoot somebody - even somebody they're quite sure is an enemy intent on killing them In states with the Koch-brothers promoted "Stand Your Ground And Shoot First" laws in place, there's no need to shout, no need to show your weapon, no need to try to restrain somebody, no need to fire a warning shot. All you need to do is - to quote the law - feel afraid - and you can shoot somebody dead.

First - the UK - where this is no such thing as judicial review - is weighing in on what's going on over here.

If Americans are promised not just liberty but life and happiness, is there not a constitutional right to affordable healthcare?" The German are getting into the game too calling out the United States as crazy. Columnist Sabine Muscat wrote about the absurdity in the Supreme Court health debate in the German Financial Times - asking rhetorically, "If the government could require people to take out health insurance, they could then not be forced to also buy broccoli? The analogy of broccoli has been dragging on through the long debate about the American health care reform." But putting aside judicial review for a moment and the fate of Obamacare - the big picture here is this...the world thinks we're crazy because...well...WE ARE CRAZY! The United States is SO far out of the mainstream with the rest of the world - and today's Republican ...
