Want to feel old?  Ok.

Mick Jagger is 70 years old today.

I assume that did the trick.

Back to politics.....

Juror B29, during an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC's Good Morning America, has this to say about the Zimmerman trial:

-She started by wanting to convict George Zimmerman of second degree murder, and assures us most of the other jurors wanted to convict him as well.  But they couldn't, because "you have to look at the evidence";

-She felt the case was never about race;

-Channeling the late Bea Arthur as "Maude", she advises Zimmerman that "God is gonna get you";

-She was going to cause a hung jury and "fought to the end"....but then voted not guilty;

-She is puzzled by the fact that, although she sees murder in absolute terms - i.e. it doesn't matter whether the shooting was or was not intentional - the law does not:  "That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it.  But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty." 

-And, despite thinking Zimmerman was guilty of second degree murder, the trial should never have taken place at all:  "I felt like this was a publicity stunt. This whole court service thing to me was publicity"

I can almost hear the late, great Dean Martin shaking his head and, to gales of laughter from his audience, sighing out "Dingaling, dingaling". 

But you can bet that, despite being about as consistent as the flight of a popped balloon, Juror B29 - "Maddy" -  will get a ton of attention. 

After all, even though she voted not guilty, and even though she acknowledges there is no evidence George Zimmerman intentionally shot Trayvon Martin, and even though she thinks the trial should never even have taken place.....she did say Zimmerman was guilty, didn't she?

Juror B29 has provided the politicians and media engaged in Operation Racial Firestorm with more gasoline to pour on the flames.  Count on them to do the pouring.

It's getting altogether too intense in here.  So, with some strategic revisions, I am posting this liitle story from our friend, Public Relations Ann.  I hope you enjoy it.

A woman was out with her friend, and they were talking about their husbands.  She told her friend "I love my husband so much that I write poetry to him, and he loves when I do it"

The friend laughed and said  "I doubt that.  Men don't like poetry, he probably just humors you". 

She answered "Is that so?  Well I'll show you how wrong you are.  I'll write a poem to him right now." 

So she took out her cell phone and texted him this poem:

To my dearest husband...

I love you.

I love you so much that I want to fully share in everything you do. 

What are you doing right now?

If you are eating, send me a taste.

If you drinking, send me a sip.

If you near a rose, send me the aroma.

They waited for several minutes, and then she got a return text:

To my dearest wife....

Right now, I'm on the toilet. Please advise.

Ok, back to politics.

I don't need to write this blog. It has already been written by Ms. Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of our personnel who was killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack:  the one this administration first lied about, calling it a protest against some video no one ever heard of, and has covered up ever since.

Here, as reported by Jeff Poor of, are quotes which show how Ms. Smith feels about what happened to her son and how this administration has (mis)treated her (complete with an accompanying video):

 "I don't believe (President Obama) anymore.  He's wrong. My son is dead. How could that be phony?" According to Smith, she has been given no answers about what happened that night. She said the administration told her she "didn't need to know."

"When I was there at the ceremony of the welcoming of the caskets, both Obama and Hillary and Biden and all of the other ones, all promised me they would get back to me to tell me what happened.  I begged them. Please, I must know what happened with my son. How come this happened? They all promised me they would get back to me. You know, not one of them, not one of them ever got back to me in any way shape or form - not by a letter, not by anything other than I got a memo stating that I didn't need to know because I was not part of the immediate family."

"I mean, it is wrong. It is not phony. It is not fake. My son is dead, and why is he dead? All I am waiting for even to this day is just someone to get back to me and tell me what happened. Why did Hillary do as she did? Why was there no security there when there was supposed to be? Who was the general that called back the troops when they were going to help?"

What strikes you as being more disgusting; more disgraceful?  The stonewalling of Sean Smith's mother, or the incredible explanation that she is not part of the immediate family? 

This is a huge scandal.  People died here.  And this administration - very especially President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - allowed it to happen through a combination of misfeasance, incompetence and, it strongly appears, indifference.  

A real media would never, ever have allowed this story to die.  But - with a combination of misfeasance, incompetence and indifference, supplemented with a massive dose of partisanship instead of journalistic integrity - that is exactly what they have done. 

They are every bit as disgusting and disgraceful as Mr. Obama his fellow cover-up artists.

The mother of this fallen US citizen deserves answers.  And a media which demands them.

So do the rest of us.
