Re: As I say...

The only viable option is to send the lot (kids & adults) home and enforce the border. As an aside: I'm all for an open border, in a minarchy. An open border in a quasi welfare state is just friggin' insane. # "we will rightly earn the reputation of being an inhuman people" That's kinda a lost caus...

borderless border v compassionless compassion

Blameless children are doing time in Federal facilities in Texas because their mothers and fathers did not heed warnings to not cross the border or else their children would be separated from them. Does this not mean the destruction of families and their values?" Probably. Tell me: what would you do...

Re: "Children locked up in America."

"The ones who did not choose to leave their homes and come to America." The ones dragged here by adults. Blame those adults, not America. Those adults have been told 'don't come' and still they do. # "What does the incarceration of children mean—children who are below the legal age of consent in ma...

Re: AMERICA IS "WINNING, WINNING, WINNING" WITH TRUMP

For those looking to characterize Trump’s accomplishments one by one, here’s a list compiled by The White House for President Trump’s own usage: https://www.whitehouse.gov/trump-administration-accomplishments/ and a rebuttal list from the Democrats’ national committee (presented by Paul Bedard in Ba...

Re: "Children locked up in America."

Which particular group of chilluns? I got a good idea but I wanna see you post it. The ones who did not choose to leave their homes and come to America. What does the incarceration of children mean—children who are below the legal age of consent in many cases, children who could not legally consent...

Re: Unproven assumptions

It seems to me that most of what we say if full of unproven assumptions. The sentence I have just written does not assume anything because of the introduction unit "it seems to me". The second sentence I have just written does not assume anything either, because it is purely analytical. Or do you s...

Re: Unproven assumptions

No, that is not correct since what is reality is a matter of proof rather than what it seems to us. You are assuming that what seems to you is true. Yes, but the author knows whether somethi...

Re: Unproven assumptions

swiftly? no... assumptions hold existence together... there is no guarantee that future events will even occur or that they will resemble past events... -Imp Yes, Mr Imp. We assume things to be in a certain way in the world. We make these assumptions in our minds, even if we don´t express them as s...

Re: Unproven assumptions

Assumptions are by their very nature unproven, if they could be proven they would not be assumptions. Begging the question. If the distinction between an assumption and presumption is but a matter of proof, then what is proof? How would I go about proving that today is Friday? How would you go abou...
