Been so long since I've written a post here that I almost forgot how to start! And it's strange how difficult starting can be -- whereas continuing is easy. Status-quo and all that. The difficulty for finishing is probably somewhere between starting and continuing, but I'm not sure where...
Anyways, so here's a blog-post!
It's not that exciting.

I haven't written a post about the aftermath of Zimmerman's acquittal in his murder of Trayvon Martin. Readers know I have written somewhat extensively about the case. I did get caught up in the evidence, the facts, thinking that surely reasonable people would be able to clearly see what happened if they just paid attention, if they simply used their heads. It may sound naive, but I truly believed. I felt real hope that justice would prevail.
Well, I was wrong. Breaking news: people are stupid. So here I am, finally, to write my own reaction to the verdict.

I've always had a combative response to proselytizing. Whether its been a suited-up group of Mormons knocking on my door at 6 AM with crisp button-downs and uncracked Bible spines -- or fundamentalist-infused Evangelicals condemning everyone in a 50 yard radius to fiery damnation while handing out business cards to their church.
It's because I'm Jewish. That's why it bothers me. Jews don't proselytize. We don't try to convert people. Why? Because fuck you, that's why. We've endured thousands of years of persecution, genocide, and diaspora simply for the sin of being "God's chosen people" ... and because we're good with money, or something like that.

While I don't feel it's necessary for me to go into much detail on this issue. I did want to issue a very quick update that...
I WAS RIGHT.
Obviously, of course, but it feels good to know that the evidence mounting against Zimmerman will ensure he spends his life behind bars. I'm talking falsified evidence, media bias, and attorney misconduct. That Zimmerman's attorneys dropped even the Stand Your Ground portion of their defense is perhaps the most hilariously horrible part; they don't even contend that Zimmerman was really justified under the effing story he concocted in the first place!
Justice may be blind and stupid, but even a broken clock can get it right twice a day.

You're talking to me about what's wrong with this country? Talking about how it's all gone to hell, everything gone to shit. You're talking about how you hate your job, hate your wife, hate your kids, hate the goddamn television because it just pisses you off, doesn't show you anything you like. And, to top it all off... you've turned into a fat ass prick who yells in traffic, trying not to die of a heart attack on the I-580 East towards Holy Shit I'm Fifty and Bald.
No, I'll tell you what's wrong with this country:
