I look at the merits -- or lack of -- of an argument.
Not much of a prism, here.
Not many merits to your arguments.
Most of you ... hell, most PEOPLE ... start with their preconceived
position, and then reason backward ... if at all.
This place ... is a stellar example of that.
Good thing you don't do that!!!! All I have seen from your posts is
to say that everybody else is totally wrong. No matter what.
Whatever anybody says is wrong. Not enough evidence or things are
preconceived or something: anything--just to say that they are wrong.
What are some solutions? Give some examples. Then don't whine if
somebody else here disagrees.
I guess it is because you are "enlightened" and just know all. I
don't know what your problem is but there is certainly a huge chip on
your shoulder. One thing is for sure: you do not want any healthy,
constructive dialog. You just want to jump on others with as little
or less "evidence" than you are looking for from others.
I have an idea: why don't we talk about woodworking again? Somehow, I
doubt of you have done much more than possibly build a popsicle house
as a kid but maybe I am wrong and you can come up with something good.
I sort of miss the days of JOAT...
I don't claim to have all the answers.
Think about that. Seriously.
I'm quite comfortable knowing that -- despite being hugely
inquisitive, and a student of politics and current events -- I don't
HAVE many answers.
The shit's hugely complicated, and intractable to simple solutions --
no matter HOW badly others crave them.
In fact, that's another real point of differentiation: I KNOW that
there's a TON that I DON'T know.
But ... so many of you ... have it all figured out. It's just the
goddamned liberals' faults.
Your accusation better fits your comrades, in truth.
Better to be silent, and thought a fool, than to speak up and remove
Incidentally, thanks for yet another classic example of all-or-nothing
"Everybody ?" "Totally ?"
I'm pointing out shit logic. I'm CORRECTLY pointing out shit logic.
Logic may not ALWAYS drive you toward "truth," but ... like the old
The race isn't ALWAYS to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
But it's a safe bet ;-)
I must have replied to you instead of to the group because I do not
see the post in here.
You were the guy who posted in here over the winter complaining about
the jokes and stuff that were being told. You took it upon yourself
to start policing the group and acted like a pompous ass back then.
You are doing the exact same thing now.
Remember: opinions are like noses--everybody has one. But whenever
you address people with aggressiveness, do you really think you will
foster any sort of relationship? You are living proof that sort of
thing doesn't work.
Actually, I am almost ready to go back and find that thread from the
wintertime. It may take me a while but I think I can find it. Maybe
I can post all of those baby jokes again for ya.
Geesh. Learn to live and let live.
Personally, I could never forgive Ford for pardoning Nixon, while he
was still alive, but with perfect 20/20 hindsight, he obviously made
the best decision for the country.
It cost him the election, but he still made the right decision in
spite of it.
How about 50% of prostrate cancer victims die under socialized medicine
vs 15% in the USSA? That sure beats I've been to '49 states and
What is "pathetic" is watching the democratic party, once a semi-fine
American entity turn into an Anti-Amerikan, left wing, socialist group
hell bent on "fundamentally changing" (destroying) the only country on
earth that recognized and empowered the individual.
Got Change: Democratic Republic ======> Banana Republic!
Thanks for putting words into my mouth. No surprise, there.
Busbus ? If you were at all objective, you'd also call people out for
this sort of bullshit, but ... not holding my breath.
Does prostate cancer define the efficacy, or cost-effectiveness, of an
entire health care system ?
I don't HAVE to have answers. It IS hugely useful to point out to
people that -- while they THINK that THEY DO have answers -- those
answers are based on shit logic and bad information.
Case in point: judging two health care systems -- in their entirety --
based on a single metric.
Bad. Not smart.
As always ... thanks for proving MY point.
Black/white, all-or-nothing thinking.
Any problems with your own party, Jack -- whomever/whatever that might
Hard to imagine.....
Easier to believe that ALL the ills in the world are the sole
responsibility of the Democrats, isn't it.
Maybe you need to challenge yourself, more ... avoiding easy answers
-- particularly where they really don't exist.
