Guess That Dabble in the Arts Didn’t Work Out

July 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

George Zimmerman saw a painting on Ebay selling for over $120,000 and decided that, “Hell, I can do that crap.”

So, he did.  Let there be crap.

Sure ’nuff, this crap sold for more than $100,000 on Ebay.

But apparently, George didn’t know any other words to the pledge of allegiance, so his art career took a nosedive.

However, he has found even more ironic employment.

According to a DeLand police report, George Zimmerman has found work as a security guard at Pompano Pats in DeLand.

Pompano Pats is a locally owned store on South Woodland Boulevard that sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.

The report stated that the owner of the business asked Zimmerman to guard the store due to a recent burglary.

Oh crap.  I hope he’s not being paid in samples.

Look at this this way – there’s a new pathway to be a successful artist:  cut off your ear or shoot a defenseless kid in the back.

Thanks to Chloe Bear for the heads up.

  1. Interesting development – the store owner says that Zimmerman is most definitely NOT employed there. Seems he has appointed himself to a new “neighborhood watch”. This guy is seriously delusional and is just looking for another excuse to kill.

    Three wishes: George Zimmerman, Sarah Palin and $Rmoney go away.

    OK, so another three wishes: Bush2, Cheney and Rumsfeld are tried for their war crimes.

    And, if you’d grant me a baker’s dozen of wishes: Rupert Murdoch is deported and stripped of his media empire(2). Aw heck, I won’t be greedy, so will stop with 8, leaving 5 wishes to all the good people here.

  3. Looks like Zimmerman “painted” through his Blue Period even faster than Picasso. And faster is better, cause you don’t get pulled over for speeding when you’re in a parked car with God.

    There are probably very few late night sidewalk cafes in DeLand, Florida, places he could discuss his work with other local artists, so standing around outside of a gun & cycle shop after hours is no doubt the best he can do for inspiration.

    Judi, evidently the store owner told him his free volunteer watching was no longer required…

    “Johnson also told the TV station that Zimmerman’s going to have to find a new pastime: “I sent him a text message telling him not to come back to the store anymore,” Johnson said.”

    Rumour has it that Georgie is going to provide security for Snowgrift Snoozie’s next announced run for the outhouse.

    His type of “protection” we can do without.

    e platypus onion, can’t imagine two more grifting losers who deserve each other more than those two. Toad should love it, too. Babysitting two morons and loading their guns for them. But baby makes bank that Toad is betting on George.

    But I would be in error. pRick and $Rmoney come to mind, as do Loopy Louie and Steve Stockyard, and to be honest too many to mention without hogging all of Juanita Jean’s bandwidth.

    Vote 2014, folks. This will be the year we turn the tides on crazy.

    Meh? As much as possible, Jane and I support Emily’s List and selected candidates.

    But Paul Ryan? We’re ready to return a Koch style favor on his ignorant, greedy, mooching taker keester. Wisconsin, recall your idiot, we have your back! No joke, we’d prefer to endure Loopy Louie in Congress than this lying lazy pile of not quite human garbage. Remember his last blank budget? It was zilch, nada, non-existent, until Senator Murray wrote it for him.

    You’ve taught me well Juanita Jean. Seriously, I hate Lying Ryan as much as Darth Dicky Cheney.

    At least when Zimmerman is painting, he can’t be out wandering around the neighhorhood late at night. Be thankful for small favors.

  9. All he did was lift a stock photo, recolor and pop some words in – and some moron paid for this?

  10. PKM–I agree with what you say (almost always), but could you do me a favor and stop using “meh” when you mean “me”? You can use some other corruption if you want to (I’d suggest “mee,” but then you’d sound like a rethuglican, and I’m pretty sure you aren’t one), but I stumble all over “meh”; old eyes just have trouble with that.

  11. That wasn’t “art”. That was therapy. Maybe if he is therapized enough he might turn out to be a . . . now maybe its me that’s delusional!

  12. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    djw, accommodation granted. But the fact is “meh” is not a substitute for me; it’s perhaps a little “me” with a liberal dose of disdain, while not so much “me.” More a sound than anything.

    Like “Teh gays” … must totally confess as to not knowing the origins of either, just liking the drift.

    The, me, a rose by any other name. Just my guess, but many of us who use the “corruption” are expressing our total abject disdain for for all things musty Rethuglican.

    But, we’re good with respecting our elders.

    maggie, as soon as President Obama opens up some more space at Gitmo, there will be space to house the crazy painters, George B and George Z.

    Zimmie is such a copycat; guess he rues the day he wasn’t born with Charlie Manson talent.

    Someone, someone I beg you please to explain why idiots like Palin and Zimmie keep exploding out of their cesspools of irrelevance.

  14. Can someone supply me with the name of the twit gave $100k to this twit for that piece of obnoxious? I got some coffee grounds art I need to part with for just a few thousand. Each.

  15. So Zimmerman is essentially stalking a gun store?

  16. maryelle says:

    The person who shelled out $100K wasn’t buying just the “art”, he/she was making a
    stand-your-ground statement in support of what Zimmerman did, kill an unarmed black kid. Unfortunately, George has many hate-filled, racist supporters who would like to do the same thing.

    Uh, Susan (and the previous 13 commenters): Not that I want to defend GZ, ever, but “in the back”?! I don’t remember it that way. What did I miss?

  18. betty@georgetown says:

    The store owner is garnering some kudos for texting Zimmerman that his hovering around was not needed. But this is “the very same gun shop that made some headlines last year when owner Pat Johnson offered Zimmerman a free gun just days after he was acquitted of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.” So now the owner, who was expressing solidarity/getting publicity by rearming a murdering psychopath, is nervous and fearful about being surveilled. Welcome to Trayvon’s world.

    M’guess is old Pat was paying him under the table, and disowned George when he got caught. I find it creepy that he’s doing his vigilante thing in my county at all.
