I LOVEEEEE that that's your

I LOVEEEEE that that's your "argument." LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

Ok.. I'll let Sharpton know.. or whatever. "significant difference".. LMFAO. :-)))

3rd grade confirmed

fol.low
1 : to go, proceed, or come after

pur.sue
1 : to follow in order to overtake, capture, kill, or defeat

That's from Miriam-Webster.

Here's another clue for you: Today, *I* followed someone, with *no* intention to pursue her.

Your use of 'pursue' is consistent with your use of 'skittles and tea' and other *loaded* terms that you and the MSM have used to distort that case.

THAT is why few around here are willing to waste their time reading your garbage. To wit, if you had plainly stated that Martin was "not carrying a firearm", instead of the manipulative appeal to emotion of "he was carrying skittles and iced tea", perhaps you'd be taken seriously and your material given a read.

We get enough bullshit from the MSM. We don't need to see it from an ally.

Look here, you dishonest

Look here, you dishonest creep..

if you're going to cite definitions out of Miriam (sic) -Webster... you better do it HONESTLY.

FOLLOW:

1
: to go, proceed, or come after
2
a : to engage in as a calling or way of life : pursue
b : to walk or proceed along
3
a : to be or act in accordance with
b : to accept as authority : obey
4
a : to pursue in an effort to overtake

REPEAT:

definition #4

" TO PURSUE IN AN EFFORT TO OVERTAKE "

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/follow

DEAL WITH IT.

LOL!

You're not even a pseudo-intellectual.. you're a moron. plainly. Plenty of folks are reading my "garbage." I'd be happier if you didn't bother to read it. Then I wouldn't feel compelled to ATTEMPT to help a child-like brain tackle the nuance that's often required..

You're a laugh. Sorry your attempt at splitting hairs on a synonym failed miserably...because it makes you look like a fool..and that's no fun for anyone.

Sorry, 3rd grader.

Everyone knows what "pursue" means, including MW (there's a reason those definitions are numbered), and why you LIED in using it.

When the dispatcher asked, "Are you FOLLOWING him (not "are you PURSUING him", as per your lie), and Zimmerman answered affirmatively, everyone knows Zimmerman didn't mean, "yes, I am tailing him with intent to overtake him."

He was instead only following him to watch him to see if he was up to no good and so that he'd be able to point him out to the cops when they arrived.

ALL the evidence supports that.

Now you can go back to wiping Chris Matthews' hiney, unless you're not through digging a deeper hole for yourself and losing whatever credibility you may have left, if any.

Oh and, out of courtesy, I'll refrain from posting the definition of "stop" so that your dishonest use of "the cops told him to stop" doesn't further embarrass you.

Is that all You got??

Ad homenims???

what a joke you are...

don't bother to respond... Here read this instead:

I've made youtube vids

I've made youtube vids exposing Chris Matthews...for the world to see. You really wanna pick this fight? I'm willing to bet you've done NOTHING to forward the ideas of liberty, save vote for Ron Paul..and comment on the DailyPaul.

You want to talk about dishonest? Smearing me as a liberal? Hey, bud... This Zimmerman / Martin thing isn't a partisan fight. I can understand how you and others might still be easily convinced to fight under the partisan banner.. BUT..disagreement does NOT make me a liberal.

I don't need to brag about my credentials to a whiny random.. but.. holy cow are you barking up the wrong tree with this "liberal" stuff.

Quote the part IN MY ARTICLE where I use the word "pursue." Quote the part where I use the word "follow" in reference to Zimmerman. YOU CAN'T. NEITHER are there. Your argument about splitting hairs over follow/pursue.. laughable. The fact that you're asserting to KNOW the thoughts/intent in Zimmerman's head.. shrug..

Calling me a 3rd grader and a liar? LOL.. post all you want.. you're no longer worth a response. You have NOTHING.

treyvon willingly decided to

treyvon willingly decided to give his right up when he decided to attack zimmerman with no cause. following someone is not a crime.

The only person to blame for treyvons actions and his own death is treyvon martin when he decided to doubleback and attack zimmerman.

If you have evidence that suggests zimmerman attacked treyvon please present it. All Evidence shows zimmerman was following him and then broke it off and then treyvon doublebacked to attack zimmerman ,eyewitness testified to this,even prosecutions witness backed up zimmermans story.

Treyvon was armed the minute he attacked zimmerman. A fist is a weapon.

if treyvon had wings he would be an out of control drone that needs to be shot down.

Ron Paul 2016

hey.. that's really

hey.. that's really interesting.

maybe someone will be interested in talking to you about everything you know about what happened that night.. all you neat facts.

meanwhile.. Trayvon was profiled. That's the point. Obama objected to it. Obama profiles. Get it?

well.. bye!

Is there some libertarian

Is there some libertarian objection to "profiling" that I am unaware of?

ahh.. another one.. Point of

ahh.. another one..

Point of article was that profiling happens.

Zimmerman profiled Martin. He told 9/11 operator that he was following a "punk".. the kind that "always get away with it."

Obama profiles.. It's the basis of his Drone War.. and signature drone strikes.

Point of article was to show hypocrisy of objecting to profiling while engaging in profiling..

Now hit me with some good old fashioned blind "Daily Zimmerman" rage about key aspects of the Zimmerman/Martin altercation that only the most astute are aware of..

downvoted my own comment..save your strength

Profiling is a useful tool

Profiling is a useful tool that helps increase efficiency.

The only drawback is there's such a bad stigma associated with it that even in engaging in it, one has to deny it.

ok

ok

I upvoted, and think it's

I upvoted, and think it's crazy people down vote so easily.

And I think you're right to fully equate the two teenagers. Its a fact Martin's rights were violated. Past that, maybe he screwed up and got himself killed at some point, but I dont know that, and no one else beside Martin and Zimmerman know.

Sorry you're getting downvoted by people who have no trouble believing that the Federal Reserve chairman is trying to sabotage the country's economy. Believing that our president faked his birth certificate. That two dudes who set a backpack down and then it blew up and killed people, are innocent. That our intelligence service orchestrated a terrorist attack involving killing thousands of our own people with a plot straight from a TV show involving the guy who owns the biggest buildings in new york city agreeing to blow them up with people in them to collect the insurance money. People who believed Mitt Romney was systematically hijacking rural vote counts in South Carolina to reverse the votes from Ron Paul to himself lol.

Yet a dude who essentially was asked by cops when they showed up to his crime scene 'should we take you to jail, or not?', chose 'no'. And then stuck to that story. So far-fetched he could be lying right? Yeah, pretty sure it was the thug's fault. Yeah, the dead black kid over there. You know, cuz Sean Hannity's version of events are usually pretty close to the truth. Right... Not saying I know, just saying its crazy like he's suddenly got like ron paul hero status for shooting someone cuz he was getting beat up. And that's like the most forgiving hypothetical version of events.

Anyway, good article.

I do have a problem

With this notion that Trayvon Martin had some kind of 'right' taken away, as we have all argued on this site ad infinitum.

However, the comparison is a good one and we should be very concerned about this drone stuff. Someone should start a vigil for this teenager. Do we know, was he involved in actual terrorism, or was his crime being related to someone - and MAYBE having an OPINION? Big f-ing deal and someday the liberal idiots that love Obama will feel sorry about this. Neocons, well, I don't have as much faith.

So, I've upvoted you, but you have to understand why that frame of Trayvon being this victim of tyranny or something leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

I hear you.. My point was..

I hear you..

My point was.. Martin was profiled. He wasn't committing a crime.. and so.. his "right" to be a kid walking home with candy/drink was taken away..

Sure.. we could argue at what point the non-aggression principle was broken.. but that wasn't the point of my article.. only that the kid wasn't doing anything that warranted being pursued..

hispanics now profiling

hispanic/white guy now profiling blacks hmmmm. laughable. If you are walking through a housing area where they have watches aka zimmerman doing his job . Then following someone is not a crime either. especially when that area has a high crime rate. Treyvon decided not to walk on and attack someone for following him. bad decision and he paid for it.

Nothing zimmemran did was against the law. It was treyvon that decided to attack. nothing zimmerman did could possibly condone an attack by treyvon.

Ron Paul 2016

nothing the nazi folks did

nothing the nazi folks did was "against the law"

Trayvon was profiled.

Profiling

is done by an 'authority'.
Zimmerman is a private individual.

still waiting for you to pull

still waiting for you to pull some garbage out of thin air as to where you were informed that only "authority" can profile.

Zimmerman called 9/11 and told them that he was following a "punk".. the kind that "always get away with it." If that's not profiling.. what is it?

downvoted my own comment so you could save your strength for your pointless rebuttal.

what wrong with profiling?

what wrong with profiling?

oh..neat.. Wait.. which

oh..neat..

Wait.. which "authority" defined this for you?

Link me, please.

Also..if Zimmerman didn't profile Martin, what do you call it?

Being a watchman

for his crime-ridden neighborhood.

Your condescension will not hide your lack of a sound argument.

Are you kidding me? You're

Are you kidding me? You're projecting! The irony is overwhelming.

My argument is sound. I'm stilllll waiting for a link to the "authority" which has convinced you permits only "authority" to engage in profiling.

Come on, VR.. any "libertarian" reading this knows you're full of it.

Once again.. with feeling.. Martin was profiled by Zimmerman. He identified him to 9/11 operator as "punk"..of variety that "always get away with it." Weird.. because he had never spoken to Martin. Never engaged in any kind of dialogue that helped him come to that bold, assured determination. How did he do it!??

It's obvious you have nothing to say...no facts to present. Merely saying someone "lacks a sound argument" doesn't make it so. That's apparent to anyone/everyone reading this.

George Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin. Your move.

"Once again.. with feeling.."

Exactly. You have an emotional argument, that does not fit the evidence.

omg. I can't believe this..

omg. I can't believe this..

PLEASE try to tell me that something I just said is factually inaccurate. You're flailing.. I so want to throw you a life-preserver.. but..

Fact:

George Zimmerman called 9/11. He said EXACTLY what I indicated.

It indicates that Zimmerman profiled Martin. That statement..and EVERYTHING I've said is devoid of emotion. I've provided FACTS. The only person making emotional appeals is you. Read your comments. Not a single fact. You made up statement that private individuals can't profile..only authority can profile.. BACK IT UP! FOURTH time I've requested a citation.

YOUR MOVE.

Should I re-invent the wheel, as well

You have six pages of that which you are requesting from me.

That, and you've become tiresome.

My move.

lol.. what a cop out. You've

lol.. what a cop out. You've got nothing. Now go get your #%$@in' shine box.

said the guy who shot

said the guy who shot him..

What's the charge for that? Was he about to break in with his skittles and tea? Maybe he was scoping it out for the future to rob it.. Who knows..

The point was he was profiled.. perhaps racially (though I don't think Zimmerman is/was racist).. Perhaps he was behaviorally profiled. Perhaps a combo of both. Either way.. the "punk" who "always gets away" was profiled.

JUST LIKE Obama + our foreign policy profiles people. Obama claimed to object to profiling..while endorsing it with his drone war. That was the point of the article.

I'm floored that people on the DailyPaul are having such difficulty reading the article and understanding the point.

Not gonna lie.. I expected more..
