right now begins the evidence that lays the groundwork for a conviction at least of neg. hom

he told the police officer on the stand right now, during their interview that Martin took off running, he got out of his truck, then Martin circled back around and attacked him.

Problem is, the tape with the non-emergency operator has him getting out of his car and admitting he is following.

It was during another interview with other cops, which we will hear later, when he realizes he has stepped on his dick and says "i wasn't following, I was just walking in the same direction."

"individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is"

If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.
Ronald Reagan


So if you think libertarians are all about freedom and you are falling for the Ron/Rand Paul BS. Well the Gipper dug them too. Because they agreed that freedom meant sticking it to those "welfare queens" and those "strapping young bucks" on foodstamps

The NSA, Snowden, Obama etc. The bottom line IMO

Regardless of whether what you think about Snowden (I think he is a traitor for giving info to the Chinese). Regardless of what you think about Obama (I am very glad that he is my president.) Here is what this come down to in my mind..

It is time to repeal the Patriot Act. That, to borrow a line from Scalia, is the diseased root from which all this grows.
