It's about time someone starts thinking about the vets in our country and stop wasting money on the lazy people who expect freebies and in return tear our county down and we all know who I'm talking about. These freebie suckers have slapped vets in the face for years. Put our vets first.

To be a fly on the wall during that Trump Pence meeting.

Wonder how Trump opened that conversation up? "Mike, sorry about that crowd that was looking to hang you. They're actually very fine people. Just spirited, you know"

One person said hang Pence, therefore all people said hang Pence. Nice inductive reasoning you got there. Now try deductive; it's much more reliable.

Okay, @8:52...
Trump advocated violence.
Trump supporters killed a Cop during commission of criminal acts.
Trump is an accessory to Premeditated Murder.
Like that any better?

No, because it's the legal equivalent of fingerpainting.

@9:28 what does legality have to do with reasoning?
You asked for deduction, you got it.

Hey 8:52 - they were fucking chanting it you dumb fuck. So, juuuuuust a few more than one person. Take your fucking excuses and Trump defense elsewhere. The normal people in this country have eyes and ears.

Anonymous said...

9:59, I see why inductive reasoning is your preferred means of reasoning. Your predicates are conclusory and your conclusion does not follow from the predicates.

BTW, I did not post at 9:28.

Trump sold arms to the Saudis over Republican objections in Congress.

He invited the Taliban to Camp David to discuss our surrender.

He surrendered the Syrian border to the Turks to allow a genocide of our Kurdish allies.

He let Russia unilaterally end nuke agreements. He also didn't respond to bounties placed on US troops.

He cancelled the Iran deal and now allows Iran to restart nuclear development and got nothing back from the previous agreement.

He fell in love with the North Korean dictator and let him continue testing and development of nukes.

But Cuba, yeah Cuba, incorrectly labeled a terrorist state in his last week. What a win. If there was a dumber, weaker President in the history of the US, I don't know who it was.
