Re: The Democrat Party Hates America

Here's the thing man. Philosophers and political theorists don't believe in 'classes' of people. They think this is some bullshit made up by marx, but it ain't. If you're some wealthy guy who galavants around the world and has no problems, of course u don't want the government fuckin with u. Of cou...

The old 'I'm right because you're a bigot' manoeuvre. Works every time :lol:
No, it’s the old “I’m morally right because I’m coming from the moral high ground and you’re not.”
Do you even know what you just typed?
Yes. What did you think I knew about what I wrote?

Re: Trump

It's funny how quickly Dem supporters accept that sort of narrative, and that sort of inconsistency. One would surely think critical thinking is truly dead there. What's apparent to the rest of us is that Trump, for some reason, is a paraiah to the Dem party, and also to the war-mongering among the...

Re: Trump

It’s funny how you completely skirted the comment about the bigot. Can’t be refuted. I didn't "skirt" it. Rather, you gave me no reason to believe it was true. So it seemed at bit petty. Ipso facto. Trump has been convicted of racially biased housing practices, in 1973. Biden has not, eve...

Re: Trump

Well, these attempts to express shock and horror so as to assume some sort of moral high ground have got to amuse anybody watching from the sidelines of this dog-and-pony show, nowadays. What does it matter if he had said that? The incumbent, Biden, said that people who don't vote for him "ain...

Re: Trump

Fortunately for Trump, his black voters are dumb enough not to realize that he's actually insulting them by suggesting that they like him more now becuz of his mugshot and charges. OMG! Did Trump actually say that? Well, these attempts to express shock and horror so as to assume some sort of moral ...

Re: Civility

I thought this thread was about civility. If you ever need to state something other than your confusion, perhaps you should define what civility means to you, in relation to that sentence you wrote there. You could also relate that statement to something specific, in order to encourage a civil disc...

I take it that you are saying that the topic being discussed, as well as the temperament of the forum member, dictates whether there will be civility or not. That sounds about right.

Civility and Campaign 2024 here in America? Civility and abortion? Civility and Gaza? Civility and Ukraine?
Not in this forum, but just tune in to mainstream news media and you’ll witness civil pundits and reporters presenting their views.

Re: Civility

It's often noted by those who deal with them how 'civil' serial killers are. Politicians are generally 'civil', especially when they are ordering the mass murder of thousands, and even milions, of people. Hitler and Stalin were apparently 'civil' and even charming when it suited them. Makes sense o...
