Check this out. It runs about 10 minutes but is revealing on so many levels.

Oh cruise; Really not letting this go are you?

You're going to keep starting threads, keep up your pro bono work for "George" no matter what aren't you?

Now you're scraping the bottom of the barrel with a Youtube vid that pretty much claims the little druggie thug had it comin. I did watch it though; it was bad enough starting off with the premise that a magazine using Martin's 'Class Picture' is "evidence" "of either criminal fraud or criminal negligence"...

...But when he launched into the whole Ice Tea+Skittles+Robitussin=Just like a Meth Lab, donchaknow...that's when he fell down the 'just anotha black hoodie addict deserved what he got' rabbit hole. (Does that guy on 'Breaking Bad' know all he had to do was hit the local 7-11 instead of what he's been through?)

cruise? You even posting tripe like an idiotic Bill Whittle video "is revealing on so many levels." If I posted a Michael Moore or Al Sharpton or Black Panther video to bolster my point(s) you would self combust.

Once again we have a committed far left apparatchik

trying to trivialize and denigrate an information source SIMPLY BECAUSE HE CANNOT REFUTE THE FACTS CONTAINED THEREIN.

The video cites police reports, autopsy results, etc., ALONG WITH TRAYVON MARTIN'S OWN WORDS AND RECORD, that tell a story vastly different than the narrative being advanced by Martin supporters and a plethora of sympathetic far left media outlets that are deliberately stirring up racial animus in the quest for ratings and circulation.

Oh take a pill

and/or STFU. You've totally lost it over this whole tragic story. And we thought you lost it long ago over other non-fatal stories.

"far left apparatchik" That's your schtick now? Your insult-word-of-the-day-toilet-paper? You Dolbo yeb.

"trying to trivialize and denigrate an information source" THAT was an information source?? Having on your person Ice Tea and Skittles indicates possible illegal drug manufacturing??

"tell a story vastly different than the narrative being advanced by Martin supporters". Yea. We're all wrong when we say the teen wasn't armed, and the cop wannabe was, and we must have it wrong when we say the unarmed one died.

"deliberately stirring up racial animus". You do that proudly every time you open up your mouth on this topic, and posting a thread about ice tea and skittles doesn't help.

The bottom line here...

is that curzo supports the right of adult men to stalk teenage boys and corner them in dark alleys.

when the left lacks fact or logic- they call you names, start conspiracies to discredit you.if all fails, they call you racist.

unfortunately, for the liberal media and most dems, this case was never about facts.

from the duke hoax to this case- liberals/liberal media are no longer able to get away with shaping stories and presenting lies as fact to support their liberal narrative.

one day the media will awaken and know people want news without bias. until then? trust in media and journolist will remain near all time lows.

You know, con...

if you believe you can get high off ice tea, skittles and Robitussin, you folks on the right pretty much have a corner on conspiracy theories.

I find it amazing that you and cruzo -- and a lot of others on the right -- aren't satisfied that an innocent, young black man was gunned down, but you now insist on character assassination?

How sad it must be to be a rightwinger these days.

It's not a "right wing/left wing" issue. Never was.

A few posters on here are trying to bamboozle the rest of us into thinking it is.

This is a stupid game. Don't fall for it.

But it WASN'T iced tea...never was

It was a canned drink called Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail. Together with the Skittles and Robitussin it makes an intoxicating concoction the users call "lean." Trayvon Martin's autopsy result showed liver damage consistent with the use of "lean."

But the Martin sympathizers and those who buy into the black agitators' narrative will continue to dishonestly refer to it as iced tea as they try to gin up more support for the agitation.

And if Trayvon Martin had

junped out of the bushes, busted your nose and bashed your head on the sidewalk would you still think him an innocent child (part of that false agitators' narrative)?

cruiser, none of what you just posted is relevant. You're intent on character assassination of a dead teenager -- a teenager who was unarmed and carrying home unopened products from a store.

Ever take a Sudafed for sinus relief? Know what that's cooked into? If you were carrying it home from the store, would it give an armed neighborhood vigilante the right to kill you? By your line of reasoning in this thread, yes, it would give him the right to kill you and the right of every two-bit right-wing know-it-all to keep smearing you for the rest of eternity.

Give it up. It's over. Move on.

BTW, here's that horrible, dangerous beverage:

Here are the intoxicating ingredients: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/arizona-fruit-juice-cocktail/ID=prod6020318-product (hey, it must be the high fructose corn syrup!)

Here's the company's contact information, so you can call to confirm the intoxicating ingredients in its Watermelon Fruit Cocktail Juice:

I thought you posted last winter that you're a chemistry genius. I must have misread.

No, I haven't watched the 10 minutes, but it just bugs me that todays news types won't bother watching something because if it has anything to do with their political opposites, it's presumed to be propaganda.

If you'd been stalking an underage boy -- you'd have it coming. Trayvon Martin also had a right to self-defense. Testimony and police reports show that his phone conversation showed that he was suspicious of the stranger following him and that he felt threatened.

The problem with videos

like that conspiracy POS is that they're nothing more than character assasination, feeding into the hate and suspicion out there, and that doesn't help anything or anyone.

For someone so spite-filled and determined cruise it always amazes me how you can be so gullible. (You) 'Watermelon Juice', "Together with the Skittles and Robitussin it makes an intoxicating concoction the users call "lean."

First, SO WHAT? Second, That's just wrong. Skittles is a candy. Testimony showed Trayvon's brother asked for them. 'Lean' is usually made with other candy. Besides that, just because he had some juice on him means nothing. That's like saying because I bought a can of Coke that's proof I was going to make a Rum&Coke at home. And never mind that both the physical and mental damage claimed from DXM would take years of sustained abuse to manifest. And abuse at levels incompatible with someone of Trayvons age. And besides that, if he the 'fixings on him' that obviously mean he wasn't drinking anything at the time doesn't it?

(You again) "Trayvon Martin's autopsy result showed liver damage consistent with the use of "lean." REALLY? That's practically a direct quote from wingnut bloggers with no basis in reality. Here's the autopsy report.

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2012/images/05/17/trayvon.martin.autopsy.pdf

Page 4 deals with the liver. it shows a mild fatty liver and that's it. Page 6 also says this; "Liver: No diagnostic abnormality." (But of course--with your years of being both a chemistry expert and a medical Examiner, you know better)

Now--back on page 1, the autopsy does say this:
Cause of Death: Gunshot wound of Chest
Manner of Deathe: Homicide
How incident occurred: Shot by another person

Now that's pretty clear. Trying to get the shooter off the hook somehow by making up shit about possible drug use by the victim who isn't here to defend himself is just plain slimy.

That's EXACTLY what Sharpton, Jackson, Jealous, Holder, Obama, the CBC, etc., etc., etc., are doing.

newscred, you're a sloppy reader. Read my post again. What about "don't have time" says "won't"?????? You're so brilliant, you explain it to me. Then explain the rest of your post an how it relates to "don't have time."

I have a full-time job, a part-time job and a start-up business, and I also have a life.

How about you? Are you managing all of that and still getting time to watch 10-minute videos about irrelevance that was all the rage on far-right-wingnut blog sites A YEAR AND A HALF AGO?

You're ridiculously gullible. There isn't a thing "cred" about about you. Get a job. Get a life.

Ah, mp, you might be planning to drop an aspirin into that can of Coke! Remember that taboo beverage of miscreants?

Evidently this horse pucky over the potency of AriZona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail + Skittles didn't even merit debunking when it made the rounds of the hater blogs in spring 2012. Anyone with an Internet connection and half a brain could look up the active ingredients in "lean" and see that they're not Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail and Skittles, or any other beverage or Jolly Ranchers either. (When the Men in Black confiscate your computer, they won't fry you for looking up Wikipedia.)

Some dope out there somewhere imagines people passed out in gutters from shrimp cocktail and Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail. In fact, I think we should make that video, post it on YouTube and watch it go to kooks' blogs.

newscred,

You hit the nail on the head.

There is no intellectual curiosity in news anymore. No one asks any questions or forms their own opinions. Just read the press release and believe it. Don't research, don't assess, and don't ever fact check anything.

You CANNOT categorize a video as propaganda if YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED IT. Would that fly in a newsroom?

"Yeah, that video, it's just propaganda."
"So what did it say?"
"Uh, I didn't watch it. I didn't have time. I just know it's propaganda."

Would YOU rely on such a person as trustworthy and professional?

The radical left is very practiced at

trying to minimize and trivialize everything that doesn't fit with their narrative. Of course, that always comes with generous helpings of ad hominem and personal attack.

Their dilemma is, however, nobody but their brethren in lunacy pays any attention to them.

OK, so you guys have nothing to do all day. That's wonderful. Write it in the sky.

Quit bashing people who work all day and half the night six days a week and have their own lives to tend to on the seventh.

Bashing won't force anyone to sit through 10 minutes of propaganda, like you can. I don't follow a link to ANY video when the poster who put it up doesn't include an explanation in the post. They're wasting my time.

If it weren't for people who work for a living, you wouldn't have everything you have. Quit your bitchin'.
