So we have A or B.

If anyone can think of any other realistic option to explain what happened, please mention it.

We already know about A. It is the story Zimmerman ultimately told. It is the story that removes himself from blame against shooting and killing another person. To believe it or to accept it - or to believe there isn't a compelling reason not to accept it - is to remove blame from Zimmerman for the killing.

So that's that.

B, on the other hand, is the sole other realistic possibility to explain what happened: two people acting upon the fear of being shot.

(Will pick this up soon. If someone has a problem with anything in this thread, then don't be a pussy. If you feel you know better than something I'm saying, then call me out on it. I'm here to learn, just like everyone else.)

Okay. Will post a few thoughts on this one. If someone wants to fight it out for a bit, then that's good...

We've got two potential things going on, that would set the stage for what happened:

Someone beating the living shit out of someone else, with a stated attempt to kill him for some perceived slight. In other words: Perhaps Martin was prone to being an explosively violent and dangerous person, but (through age) hadn't had opportunity to develop any significant record to show it.

..or..

Two people acting upon the fear of being shot.

You have to believe one of those things occured, to explain what happened.

Right..or not?

Bump.   Smiley

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

From right around 1900, when globalists started to envision and plot.

Clearly this is a choice one could make. Some folks take it a step further, they make so little money they actually qualify for public assistance, which is funded by, what else, other people's taxes. There are the have's and the have not's. There are the giver's and the taker's. Some people consciously chose the role they play, other folks inherit it.

...and the biggest TAKERS all live in a revolving door between the government and corporate world.

And BTW, 'legal or illegal' has become meaningless. The lines have been blurred beyond sight. That's how far the criminal plot has advanced.

wait.. so we have the money to drive them a thousand miles but we dont have the money to turn the bus around and just drive it 100 feet back across the border and tell them all to get out?


how exactly is this fair to my relatives and millions of others who try to come to this country legally???


why is nobody asking these questions???

These are Central Americans.

I'm sorry, Adonis. (I know it goes against everything you're thinking right now, but the very best thing you can do is to look after another dog right away. Your instincts may tell you that you're somehow turning your back on the memory of Tesla, but you'll quickly find the total opposite is true. The act will help to heal the situation faster than anything else. Trust that.)

I think of guys like Obama-the-corrupt and the messages he places out there, and it is so infuriating.

This event may have been the first time these people realized the shit they heard back down south was WRONG.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Showdown: California town turns away buses of detained immigrants on: July 02, 2014, 05:57:13 PM
See, the whole thing sucks. I feel kind of bad for the people on the buses, as they're just trying to find a better way.

These scenes shouldn't be given the opportunity to happen in the first place.

Okay, lol. I see.what you guys are up to.

Kore violated a kid and threatened the parents with violence if they went to the authorities.  I was told this by a very reliable source.

When's the first you heard of this accusation, RRKore?
14  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Legalized Marijuana and the Crime Question on: July 01, 2014, 02:26:39 PM
Ask the five year old boy you violently raped.

What's this about?

Some of you guys obviously don't read the G&O and don't even know who the legendary ESFitness is.   Huh

You should be ashamed to have not recognized my tributes to such an esteemed internets legend!  Cry

Haha..oh, I've seen the "don't dis' me, bro" post (at least once in every thread, lol)

But the Sterling post was new (to me). Shoulda known it was an ESFitness production. Haha, I love it.

It is a fight against the devil, friends, and nothing less than that. It is every bit that serious. Think of the only potential path.

We've got to protect America, boys. We're getting stomped by the pigs. This issue is the FRONT LINE.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Rupert Murdoch Says Immigration Reform Can't Wait on: June 30, 2014, 12:32:00 PM
this destroys the weak argument from liberals and fake-ass republicans that "immigrants only do the jobs that legal americans don't want to do!"

Seeing headlines like this, I can't understand how anyone can support dream or amnesty.  Unless ALL JOB GROWTH in the USA in the last 14 years is "jobs americans dont want", then yes, very much so, illegals have taken american jobs.

Yes. The idea that someone would dare to proclaim certainty about what everyone else "doesn't want", when we're talking about the difference between surviving and being sunk, is absolutely outrageous. NO ONE can rightly decide that for others.

Think of the absurd level of presumption it requires, and tell me it doesn't define the very worst sort of elitism (not to mention stupidity).

Study: All Employment Growth Since 2000 Went to Immigrants

According to a major new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), net employment growth in the United States since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants, legal and illegal. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CIS scholars Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler found that there were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level.

The rapidity with which immigrants recovered from the Great Recession, as well as the fact that they held a disproportionate share of jobs relative to their share of population growth before the recession, help to explain their findings, the authors report. In addition, native-born Americans and immigrants were affected differently by the recession.

Other significant findings include:

        *Because the native-born population grew significantly, but the number working actually fell, there were 17 million more working-age natives not working in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000.

        *The share of natives working or looking for work, referred to as labor force participation, shows the same decline as the employment rate. In fact, labor force participation has continued to decline for working-age natives even after the jobs recovery began in 2010.

        *Immigrants have made gains across the labor market, including lower-skilled jobs such as maintenance, construction, and food service; middle-skilled jobs like office support and health care support; and high­er-skilled jobs, including management, computers, and health care practitioners.

        *The supply of potential workers is enormous: 8.7 million native college graduates are not working, as are 17 million with some college, and 25.3 million with no more than a high school education.

According to the study, 58 million working-age natives are not employed.

Camarota and Zeigler report three conclusions:

        *First, the long-term decline in the employment for natives across age and education levels is a clear in­dication that there is no general labor shortage, which is a primary justification for the large increases in immigration (skilled and unskilled) in the Schumer-Rubio bill and similar House proposals.

        *Second, the decline in work among the native-born over the last 14 years of high immigration is consis­tent with research showing that immigration reduces employment for natives.

        *Third, the trends since 2000 challenge the argument that immigration on balance increases job oppor­tunities for natives. Over 17 million immigrants arrived in the country in the last 14 years, yet native employment has deteriorated significantly.

The Center for Immigration Studies is a non-profit research institute. Founded in 1985, the organization is regularly consulted by policymakers, the academic community, and the media on matters of immigration policy.

haha, yeah!! He cracks me up, he's talented.

I reposted that business post in a million threads lol

Hahaha... Grin I thought it had that ESFitness look to it.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Rupert Murdoch Says Immigration Reform Can't Wait on: June 29, 2014, 02:43:49 PM
I'll let you smart guys sort it all out.

Can't trust politicians, 2Thick. I'm sure you know that.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Rupert Murdoch Says Immigration Reform Can't Wait on: June 29, 2014, 02:43:00 PM
I don't take kindly to disrespect. not on the internet, not in person, not in a grocery store parking lot, not in like at walmart, not in a restaurant, not at the beach, not at the dry cleaners... anywhere.

ppl talk about the 'pussyfication' of America, yet they run their mouths thinking they won't get slapped and get their arm broken in front of their friends.

spent many yrs in a place where if you talk slick and say something out of line to somebody, you know that when you say it, you better be ready for what happens. most ppl here in the 'real world', aren't ready for what could happen.. and run their mouths like the world is a make believe cartoon. despite wearing nice slacks, polished shoes and a nice shirt, the guy you steal that parking spot from at the grocery store and proceed to flip off, may have just gotten out of prison and will have no problem identifying they bitch in you and proceed to teach you a lesson by taking you down to the ground and kicking out your teeth before you even know what happened.

the guy who's willing to go the furthest, wins. if you're not willing to go all the way, it's best you keep your mouth shut and move on, and make it to the next day.

Didn't see any active Sterling threads, lol. That's why I wondered.

Never understood the point of 'illegal or legal', when we cannot trust the lawmakers.

Sounds like a great way to get fucked around, real fast.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Rupert Murdoch Says Immigration Reform Can't Wait on: June 29, 2014, 01:51:27 PM
you're not equipped for this, tree-hugger. business is not something you're versed in, just tap out.

I've owned businesses, managed businesses, and invested in businesses. Clippers ain't a public company, I assume sterling owns a controlling share, if not 100%. you can't force a man to sell his business. if he were CEO, the board of directors could vote on terminating him, but he's not elected (hired). it's like forcing Sergey and the other guy to sell Google.com..... you can't do it. Sure, you can fire Eric Schmidt (although I believe he's stepped down already... beside the point), but you can't force Sergey and other guy (the owners) to sell.... the same way you can't force zuckerberg to sell his interest in Facebook..... the same way Annaly Capital can't force me to sell my shares because of something other shareholders see me posting on Getbig. that's not how it works kid.


Which Sterling thread did you mean to post this in?

 Huh
