  1. If you are interested in starting such threads,...

    Sorry to butt in, but I wanted to offer my own preference FWIW.
    I wish there were some threads in support of what Republicans are doing.
    There are lots of threads criticizing the hapless...
  2. Could you explain to me how "halting adolescent...

    Could you explain to me how "halting adolescent vaccine outreach" is "anti-vaxxer"?
  3. I did not propose to educate anyone on the...

    What? You mean you’d be okay with missing the high level education on American government that is so graciously offered by our Australian scholar friend?
    :hysterical:[/QUOTE]

    I did not propose to...
  4. I did not imagine I had the power to force...

    I did not imagine I had the power to force anybody and I did not say or imply it. The fault is with your comprehension skills. "I want" is not "I have the power".



    The latter. How grubby.


    ...
  5. I did not imagine or say I had the power to do...

    I did not imagine or say I had the power to do so.



    That sounds grubby and underhanded.
  6. Even if that were true--and it is not--that does...

    Even if that were true--and it is not--that does not mean that any bill that makes it harder to vote is a subversion of democracy.



    Tell me, in a world where conservatives had not engaged in...
  7. If that were true--and it is not--then the...

    If that were true--and it is not--then the Democrats are guilty of democracy subversion in the highest degree, as they made voting in the legislature impossible.
  8. I did not say the laws were arbitrary. The...

    I did not say the laws were arbitrary.



    The bill was trying to change many things so there is no one thing that it was trying to 'fix'.



    Security is not the only reason to change voting...
  9. I didn't say the legislation was a good idea. I...

    I didn't say the legislation was a good idea. I said the Democrats were subverting democracy by running away, and that any bill that makes it harder to vote does not automatically entail that that...
  10. The rules were written--I am certain--to help...

    No, I want to force them to do the jobs they were paid for. And if they refuse to do them, they should be fired and replaced with people who will do them.[/QUOTE]

    They are doing their jobs by...
  11. No. It is your contention that the rules provide...

    No. It is your contention that the rules provide "an unfair advantage to one group of citizens". I do not believe them to do any such thing. Indeed, I believe they remove an unfair advantage that...
  12. You are not correct. I understand the GOP is...

    You are not correct. I understand the GOP is making electoral rules that it thinks are fairer. But even if it were making rules that specifically were to benefit the GOP, that does not mean the rules...
  13. No, I want to force them to do the jobs they were...

    Really? You'll have to explain that.[/QUOTE]

    Easy. You want to force the democratic legislators to go back and cast their votes. You want to force them to speak even though the laws of the...
  14. Better to be on 'ignore' rather than respond to...

    Better to be on 'ignore' rather than respond to your complete bad-faith bullshit as if you had any intention of listening to my answer.
  15. So what? Is there some argument that companies...

    So what? Is there some argument that companies should bear the financial burden of supporting electors? Democrats control the House, Senate, and Presidency. Why don't Democrats propose a national...
  16. What a strange question. Perhaps 'drive thru'...

    So why is it okay to drive-thru for liquor but not okay to drive-thru vote?[/QUOTE]

    What a strange question. Perhaps 'drive thru' voting is grossly inefficient and would worsen waiting times,...
  17. Yep, we're done.

    Yep, we're done.
  18. What "inconsistencies" in "Texas legal practice"?

    Do your nontributions have to be so obnoxiously large?[/QUOTE]

    I don't think so. Especially when one so overtly tries to suppress instances of inconsistence in Texas legal practices.[/QUOTE]

    ...
  19. Do your nontributions have to be so obnoxiously...

    Do your nontributions have to be so obnoxiously large?
  20. Are you implying my original post was...

    thought is the key word buddy.[/QUOTE]

    Are you implying my original post was 'thoughtless'?

    You called my thread '10/10 trash'. Why? I think it's become a trash fire too, but probably not for...
  21. Oy gevalt. I get my news from a variety of...

    Of course you didn't realize it--that's what happens when you get your "news" from right wing sources: you get a very distorted picture of the world.[/QUOTE]

    Oy gevalt. I get my news from a...
  22. @ZiprHead, is the forum called 'talkfreethought',...

    I've been racking my brain to think of an analogy that describes the premise of this thread. Basically, this is like specifically targeting jaywalkers in a region that is dominated by ISIS. Sure,...
  23. I did not introduce the whataboutism and I...

    Nice explanation that focuses on context and intent instead of the kneejerk ideological absolutism of "every single time" whataboutism.

    Since whataboutism was introduced, I do find it more than...
  24. Really? You'll have to explain that.

    Really? You'll have to explain that.
  25. False dilemma. "Massive election fraud" is not...

    Now tell us all about the massive election fraud that made these unarguably restrictive measures an advancement of democracy rather than an attack on the electorate meant to reduce the number of...
