I don't care about the outcome of the Martin Zimmerman case it should have been handled on the local and not by the AG which cost us the tax payers a lot of dollars and money.

Clinton who was on our payroll abused his power taking advantage on younger women in the Oval Office. If this would have been out of the office and in private Star would have been barking up the wrong tree. Face it Clinton Lied and he should be held accountable just like any other politician that has been caught lying. JMO is all. I see two completely different scenarios here.
Both were politically motivated. btw at least holder investigated the subject at hand. as you may recall star was investigating whitewater. failing to obtain evidence enough to prosecute Clinton on that he went after his personal life even hiring a monkey wrench to blow the whistle on her BFF, then placing lewd acts on the public Internet. Clinton's impeachment was a farce, R representatives having made up their minds to vote to impeach before a trial or deliberation began.

Yeah hit me with another outrage about Democrats.
This thread indicates justice was done and that your side won, yet you are not satisfied w the result.
I cannot help you further if you and Az, OC, Mr Lib and Co., are so determined to be depressed.

seriously Salty???? You and you alone brought up Ken Starr not me or anyone else. You took the thread off course as usual. Kind of why I left this place for some time becuase people like you don't discuss the facts rather make it a Democrat versus Republican thing. Political or not it was two different cases. The Martin Case was definatley a local case nothing different than what happens on a daily basis. It became Political only because Obama and Holder stuck their noses into it.

I posted my opinion and said nothing about Democrats. As for Starr investigating other things, tough **** get over it. Clinton made his own bed and their probably should have been even more inveatigated. But go ahead and defend him. Let's just keep the crooks in office that is what is best for this country.

I don't remember you, but welcome back

Holder was asked to investigate on (I presume) a civil rights basis, and he was obligated to do that. However I am sure the investigation going forth did not hurt the Obama administration with his constituents. THAT's politics.

Star on the other hand was investigating another matter he had no evidence on that would stick so he went the route as I stated above. THAT's politics.

and if you would have come back to me with that I would have taken your post totally different. That would have been a discussion for another thread and you and I could have had a decent constructive chat. But that is why I left Salty is becuase people here don't discuss things rather than attack each others Political Following. IE example, Obama gets caught lying, the right attacks the left defends with Bush lied. What I want to know is what are WE the people going to do about it. I don't care who lied, how do we stop it. Now I will bow out because we you and I Salty have taken this post off topic.

Post Re: U.S. won't file charges against George Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin death

I would be fascinated to know how much money was actually spent by the DoJ in the past few years on the Martin / Zimmerman investigation.

My gut suspects that Holder talked about what he might do a couple years or so ago. And then I suspect he did nothing.
To me, I'm quibbling over something minor as either scenario is flawed in my head.
Either...
a) Holder spent some time and money over the last few years trying to investigate something for Martin / Zimmerman, OR
b) Holder said he would do something he never actually did.
(I would bet on b)

Either way, not good...

you may not believe this, but I used to try so hard to stay on topic and others always attacked someone's politics so I just sometimes roll with the flow of any given day. I come here to relax and if I don't want to be mince meat have to get a little aggravating once in awhile.

I didn't know Teresa Kerry was in the attorney general office. She's the only African-American who comes to mind.
