Re: Wannabe Conservative Thinkers
Hey, I made an offhand remark that you seized upon to manufacture a reason to waste time and bandwidth.

Just let it go, boy!

I suggest you follow that advice yourself.

A classic self-own
This is one of the best self-owns I have seen in a while. But then again I seem to remember that self-awareness was never one of your strong suits.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

As I pointed out, that "offhand remark" was literally your entire post (Message 343). And all I did was ask for clarification. YOU could just clarify instead of coming back months later to whine about it.

A "xenophobic stooge" (D Wise) lectures against foolish "zero-sum" thinking?
Too good!

(Byron Dorgan used to joke about the way people labeled his anti-free-trade b.s.)

"People say us critics of NAFTA are just a bunch of 'isolationist xenophobic stooges'"

Comments about Pelosi's "Gazpacho Police"
MT Greene's (AKA "QAnon Betty") name for the Gestapo ("Geheime Staatspolizei") has generated a number of comments, a few of which were read at the beginning of this morning's The Stephanie Miller Show):

quote:
"With the Gazpacho Police every crime is a cold case."

"I have met some members of the Gazpacho Police. They are consummé professionals."

"The real question is how the Gazpacho Police interacted with the Vichyssoise government."


It's so strange to remember how much we feared Dan Quayle would put comedy writers out of work by doing all their work for them. Now he looks like a genius. Like how Nixon now looks like a choirboy.

Well, when you start out as mentally handicapped as OAnon Betty and then drink your own pee every morning...

And she's undoubtedly doing even that wrong. I've heard from reliable sources (ie, the Internet) that drinking your own pee is effective only if you eat lots of asparagus. The more asparagus the better.

That'll separate the hard-core believers from the mere dilettantes.

 
ABE:
I just heard Senior Chief Malcolm Nance, momentarily unable to recall her three-name moniker, refer to QAnon-Betty as "Queen Gazpacho."

It didn't say, but I assume history.

ABE: or science.

The American Influence
The stupidity of the American alt-right anti-vaxx movement has spread world wide.

The Canadians caught it big time. Now it seems the land of Shangri-La has been infected.
