George Zimmerman Apologizes to Martin's Family, Bond Set at 150K | Fox News Latino

George Zimmerman Apologizes to Martin's Family, Bond Set at 150K | Fox News Latino:

This is outrageous. If a Black man had murdered or was accused of murdering a white "boy", there would be no bond; and if there was a bond, it would in the millions. Are you tired of this nonsense? When is enough, enough. What is the message here? Kill a Black person and you can get a bond. Well, get ready for bloody streets, mayhem, and random attacks on your person.

Robert L. Borosage: The Zombie Rises: The Return of Simpson-Bowles
With interest rates near zero, a decrepit infrastructure that must be rebuilt and a construction industry flat on its back, anyone with a whit of business sense would finance a massive Rebuild America program over the next few years, put people back to work, and build the sinews vital for a more competitive economy. Right now, the focus should be on putting people back to work and getting the economy moving. Until that happens, austerity -- as Europe is now experiencing -- is a contagion, not a cure.

One of the election season's most talked-about "dark money" groups released its tax returns yesterday, showing it raised almost $77 million from fewer than 100 donors over 19 months. Most of the money spent in its first year went directly to political ads or grants to other groups.

Still, Crossroads GPS, also known as Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, retained plenty of mystery -- namely, the donors' identities. On the returns there are no donor names, no clues as to whether they are individuals, companies or trade groups, and no hint as to whether there are repeat donors from year to year. READ MORE

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Thursday for the U.N. Security Council to adopt a global arms embargo and other tough measures against Syria to reinforce existing Western embargoes if the country fails to abide by a cease-fire designed to end 13 months of bloodshed.

Clinton stopped short of calling for outside military intervention in Syria -- for which there is little or no foreign appetite -- but said it is time to impose more consequential measures on Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime. READ MORE

Just 3 Days Until Earth Day
The Environmental Protection Agency issued the first-ever national air pollution regulations for fracking on Wednesday. First proposed in July 2011, the final rules have been welcomed by environmental groups as a much-needed initial move in reducing pollution and protecting public health from the toxic chemicals involved in the oil and natural gas drilling process. But many cautioned this was just a first step.

"It sets a floor for what the industry needs to do," said attorney Erik Schlenker-Goodrich of the Western Environmental Law Center. "The reality is we can do far better." READ MORE

'70s rocker and conservative activist Ted Nugent, who made headlines when he told NRA members "I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year" if Barack Obama is re-elected president, met with the Secret Service Thursday to explain himself. But he didn't break a sweat, telling a radio talk-show host that "the Secret Service are my buddies" (and that he hangs out with former agents at NRA rallies anyway). READ MORE
