Conservatives are much smarter than liberals. They have to be in order to come up with convincing sounding reasons for believing nonsense and lies.

Let me fix that sentence.
Nothing is wrong with spending more money on the homeless.

Congratulations on turning it into ungrammatical nonsense.

Lots of us have explained this to you many, many times over many years. But you don't seem to be terribly interested in the answer. Why not?

The "ability to examine things from another perspective" gene seems to be missing, as does the "we've discussed this before detector" gene. It's apparently common among the religious (especially the creationist religious), Trumpists, and discoverers that relativity is wrong.

Re: Is Jesus Liberal or Conservative or...
Another thought occurred to me. It isn't uncommon in discussions for it to become helpful to reformulate the question. Oftentimes the question as originally formulated wasn't clear or just wasn't interpreted as intended, and then reformulating the question is a good idea.

What Phat is doing is reformulating the same questions over and over again, but not because the earlier formulations weren't clear or the answers weren't clear, and not because anything was misinterpreted, but because a few days have gone by and another way of asking the same questions have occurred to Phat. Repeatedly Phat is met with replies telling him, in effect, "You asked that already" or "We've answered that already", but round and round he goes anyway. Hard to watch or experience, I've taken a break from responding to him. He's become like some of the worst creationists we've ever had here, not about evolution but about gold as an investment and fiat currencies and evil liberals and the nation sinking national debt and threatening immigrants.

I wonder how his A1C's doing, I haven't noticed him mention it in a while.
