    Sounds like a corrolary to the stopped clock that's still right twice a day.

    Contrary to your previous remark - it gets great gas mileage, it just doesn't go anywhere (why, you haven't had to put gas in it in ages!).

    Either that, or the wrecker that's hauling it gets really bad mileage.

    Given Zimmerman's actions SINCE his acquittal, it's obvious his violent behavior is NOT an isolated incident.

    It's probably only a matter of time before he implodes or picks a fight with someone who will kick his ***.

    Zimmerman seems to have that itch in the roof of his mouth that only a gun barrel can scratch.

    Hope I'm wrong but that dude is not stable.

    Given his high-profile past, spitting on the sidewalk would get him national coverage by the press.

    What's scary is that there are others out there who haven't attracted any attention, yet.

    I am a gun rights guy. I believe that 2nd ammendment confirms my rights to own a gun for self protection. I believe I have the right to defend myself and my loved ones if need be.

    What I don't believe is that I need some dumb a z z that isn't smart enough to shut up, lay low, and avoid trouble with the law, after winning a questionable decision in his trial, being the poster child for gun rights and self defense. He has hurt those of us that are law abiding citizens, keeping our noses clean, by being such an idiot.

    To compare spitting on the sidewalk with 2 domestic violence reports and scuffling with the police during a friends arrest show an almost complete lack of how troubled Zimmerman is and how far he is out there ticking away...

    Same here. At this point in time only a fool believes Zimmerman actions were motivated by some altruistic goal.

    There's no comparison intended there.

    The point is that he's on the nation's radar, so even a minor offense is going to be reported - nationally. He should be minding his Ps and Qs, but as you note, apparently he's not capable of doing so. And that is a problem.

    The point I was making is domestic violence and "scuffling" with the cops are hardly minor offenses.

    Frankly, I just see this guy as quite possibly one of the stupidest people alive. If I was found not guilty under the questionable circumstances of his case I guarantee you I would have moved away, tried to simply blend in, shut the hell up, and behaved myself.

    No question there. I read about that stuff regularly here locally, and hear it on the scanner. Some of the "customers" are regulars.

    You don't know if Martin initiated the attack. All we have is Zimmerman's word for it. Which isn't worth much.

    Are you going to find where I stated that President was ineligible AND QUOTE IT or are you going to keep asserting things that are not true? Your attack on my credibility is meaningless based on your history of believing that:
    • No Nazi/Bush comparisons were ever made
    • The Iraq War cost $3,000,000,000,000.00.
    • The Fed.gov’s fiscal year ended on June 30.
    • That budget deficits and National Debt are the same thing.
    • Government run healthcare is better than private sector healthcare.
    • Bush's lifting of OCS Drilling Ban had zero effect on crude oil prices.
    • I, and other conservatives, was never critical of Bush's spending.
    • Government programs like the CRA had no influence on the present recession.
    • The Republican controlled congress in the last 6 years of Clinton's administration had nothing to do with a balanced budget, despite the fact that the Constitution requires that "All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives."
    • That Reagan was a BIGG TAX LIBERAL when governor of CA.
    • That caps on malpractice lawsuits have no effect on insurance premiums.
    • That removing barriers to competition among health insurance companies will have no effects on their pricing.
    • That Republicans controlled the Senate and Congress in 1994.
    • The some form of a health care bill would be signed by Obama before the end of 2009.

    And that's exactly how we know. Zimmerman testified. Zimmerman wasn't charged with perjury. This is no evidence or testimony to contradict his testimony. Yet somehow you seem to think you know otherwise.

    Maybe because whites are all you are ever exposed to in your gated community and down at the Country Club that your wife pays your membership at.

    If you'd put down your cup of Kool-Aid and come out from under that granite counter-top you live under, you would know that facts and statistics contradict every word you speak.

    The rest of us who live in reality are fully aware of Polar Bear hunting and the knock out game.

    Tell us what is more likely to occur, a white murdering a black, or a black murdering a white?

    I'm not confused now. Were you there that night when Zimmerman shot Martin? No? Me neither, so anything either one of us says is heresay based on what we have been told by the media. You choose to believe one version, I choose to believe another.

    Since you're so stuck on "if", this should make it easier your mind to digest: If Martin wouldn't have initiated a physical attack on Zimmerman, there is no dead black young man either. Why are you so oblivious to that?

    Prove, with anything other than your opinion, based om Zimmerman's testimony, that can't be corroborated by witnesses, or disputed because the only other witness is dead, that Martn initiated the confrontation. Because the only undeniable fact is if Zimmerman stays in his car there is no chance for a confrontation. Even someone as blind as you should be able to see that.

    Because you've swallowed the liberal narrative hook, line and sinker.Then you're not paying attention.
    I have swallowed nothing. But before you point the idealogical finger at anyone try leaning to the left a bit so you can stand straight up.

    At the thread (Why are you voting for whoever for President?) you state:

    His citizenship is still questionable based on his citizenship in other countries that America prohibited dual citizenship with.
    I'm sure I could find others. That one is adequate. The courts decided your belief was invalid.

    There's also no evidence to prove his claim was correct. The fact that he wasn't charged with perjury is irrelevant. He exited his vehicle after stalking Martin after being told to not do so. We also know that of the two, Zimmerman is the one with a history of physically violent behavior BEFORE the incident with Martin. His actions subsequent aren't helping his reputation of being a victim. That we know. Your remarks about my wife and country club membership are funny. It's not my fault I married someone who became successful in the private sector. You're obviously not married. Or you'd know that things sometimes don't go the way you plan. Sometimes for the better. Maybe you believe being married to someone successful is a bad thing. Please continue with that mindset. It'll work out real well for you. You have no idea how much guilt I feel when I sit at the bar of my club. If it helps, the next time I'm there, I'll raise a toast in your memory.

    Like which statistics? Like the fact that there are about 25K murders in the US? Like the fact that half of those murders are Black men killing other Black men in an urban environment? Like the fact that there are about 42M Blacks in the US?

    Given the statistics I cited above prove that being Black does not mean that you are statistically likely to be a murderer. The odds of a cracker like you being killed by an urban Black youth in Sticksville is so small that I would need scientific notation to put it on one line. Please keep up with your paranoid mindset regarding ethnic individuals. Very entertaining.

    You can claim you don't remember saying anything about Bush/Hitler/Nazi comparisons, but facts tell us otherwise.

    Bush was compared to Hitler and Nazis by many liberals, and it was reported by conservative and liberal news outlets alike. Not knowing this is an easy mistake for any person like you with special needs. But look on the bright side, you didn't fail anyone's expectations.

    And Martin didn't? Martin boasted many times about street fights and scoring "purple drank." You want people to believe he was a 12 year old choir boy. This how every liberal has depicted the case:


    Facts tell us it's more like this:

    A randomly chosen black American is 12 times more likely to murder a white American, than the other way around. It's not opinion, it's fact. And I know you'll challenge the conclusion, and I look forward to posting the data, sourced to FBI crime data and Census data.

    The problem with conservatives is they remember a Reagan that is nothing like the person who actually governed. The Reagan that lived would get kicked out of today's GOP. I'm old enough to remember him as both President and Governor. I can assure you his actions as both are nothing like how his hagiographers remember him. Raised taxes, expanded government, softened abortion and immigration policy, and negotiated with terrorists. Something his supporters conveniently never mention.

    Statistics show your claim is ridiculous. Given the number of Blacks in America versus the number of murders make the probability so low as to be negligible.

    12x an infinitesimal number is still an incredibly small number. Please continue with your paranoia. Very entertaining.

    Geezus, shut the phuck up already and give it a rest both of you. It is Christmas Eve. A night of Joy and Peace and Brotherhood. Just for a couple of days how about you too try practicing some Holiday Spirit and if you can't, then just shut up for 2 days.

    Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!
    Merry Christmas to you as well.

    If so it would be because he was too conservative. Reagan and Goldwater are probably rolling over in their graves after seeing the statism that has overtaken both parties in Washington, D.C.

    These silly allegations have been thoroughly dealt with before. (right here: firehouse.com/forums/t110147-6/#post1094462 AND here: firehouse.com/forums/t110147-5/#post1094158) Yet you keep repeating lies thinking that will eventually make them true. You're revisionist version of History never ceases go beyond the realm of factual. There's a consistent pattern here where liberals believe their ideas are immune from mathematics.

    You have no idea what you're writing about. If more total people die in Honda Civics than Ford Tempos, it is logical since 6 times as many Civics have been sold than Ford Tempos. But when more total people die in a vehicle with low production numbers, it is by definition, a more deadly vehicle.

    Here's a simple summation of 7 years of crime data from the FBI. Whites murdered by Blacks numbered 3,382, while Blacks murdered by Whites was 1,543. That's a simple ratio of about 2.2:1. But the raw number doesn't tell the whole story as the White population is 5.74 times larger than the Black population.

    Total number of Blacks murdered by Whites in 7 years = 1,543
    1,543 ÷ 7 = 220.43 per year average
    White population = 223,553,265
    223,553,265 ÷ 220.43 = 1,014,169
    Thus, there is a 1 in 1,014,169 chance that any White American will murder a Black American in one year.

    Total number of Whites murdered by Blacks in 7 years = 3,382
    3,382 ÷ 7 = 483.14 per year average
    Black population = 38,929,319
    38,929,319 ÷ 483.14 = 80,576
    Thus, there is a 1 in 80,576 chance that any White American will murder another Black American in one year.

    1,014,169 ÷ 80,576 = 12.58

    So the chances that any randomly chosen Black American, will murder a White America, in one year, is 12.58 times higher than the other way around.
    That isn't opinion, it's math.

    Here is the Census and FBI data:

    2006
    2007
    2008
    2009
    2010

    Let's define infinitesimal.....
    ADJECTIVE: infinitesimal
    1. extremely small.
    synonyms: minute, tiny, minuscule, very small, microscopic, imperceptible, indiscernible, teeny, wee, teeny-weeny, itsy-bitsy, little-bitty
    antonyms: enormous
    NOUN: infinitesimal; plural noun: infinitesimals
    1. an indefinitely small quantity; a value approaching zero.


    So you think a crime rate, that is 12.58 times greater in one demographic than another, is infinitesimal. Your posts are the gifts that keep on giving.

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. --Norman Mattoon Thomas, 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America

    Seriously Dude, is there anything else you'd like to talk about other than rehashing old news? Like it or not Obama is the President and will be for 2 more years. As far as Zimmerman goes who cares? he is a moron and watching him is like looking at a train going off the tracks heading for a big horrific crash. He is too stupid to shut up and disappear until the heat is off. Anything that happens to him at this point he deserves 100%.

    Now how about some current events, or even this, some fire related stuff. Because frankly you are coming across like one of the crusty old dudes down at the gas station that just bitch about stuff all the time but never really have any answers to anything.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
