All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

Is there any reason that Obama did not make QUIETING the furor over Trayvon Martin’s death a PRIORITY?
I understand why looking at a picture of Tryavon Martin could cause President Obama to instantly think, ‘that could be my son’.
But his campaign and election compel on him a higher responsibility than reacting that way.
Everyone has jumped all over this with their assumptions and in fact if this guy is actually charged he might escape by the impossibility of a fair trial because of massive pretrial prejudice.
All we have to do is think back on the the abortion bombings in Atlanta, and the Duke Lacrosse squad to estimate the pointless damage being done, right up the New Black Panther Party issuing a dead or alive warrant, and Jesse Jackson claiming blacks are under attack in America.
President Obama should have warned off Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others seeking to gain advantage (Tawana Brawley, anyone?) from this horror. If they did not heed the warning to avoid incitement in the face of a shortage of facts (a definition of prejudice, btw) he should have called them out.
We need better.
Obama should have promised we would get to the bottom of it all, and warned against pre judging, AND against incitement which would lead directly to acts which might actually ensure a guilty man goes free, or lead to other crimes.
But that was all lost in , ‘that is what my son would look like’.
There is no doubt that is true, and there is no doubt that is a natural and proper reaction …
