How much you wanna bet this account is busy posting phallic pictures elsewhere on the internet? Some folks feel the need to compensate for, well, you know. #BanAssualtWeapons

It is very telling he resorts to insults rather than objective data and rational arguments. He’s leading with the best he has to offer.

Is it too much to ask that, before someone demands that we #BanAssaultWeapons, that he learn to spell the word first?
Or is it better for our side, that such people advertise their ridiculous ignorance up front?
Personally, I shouldn’t speak much to others spelling or ridiculous ignorance.
But it’s nice to understand just how underestimated one is.
No, I don’t know. Please spell it out for me, with details and logical connections.
”It is very telling he resorts to insults rather than objective data and rational arguments. He’s leading with the best he has to offer.”
Yes, well that’s the point though isn’t it? When enough centralized power has been consolidated, that power no longer needs objective data, nor rational arguments. Is that not the message that’s being delivered here? Is that not the definition and purpose of authoritarianism? For if one is required to deliver objective data and rational arguments to get one’s desires, it is a sign of weakness and of a lack of “real” power. “Real” power is the ability, at a whim, to simply command and have it be done, with or without agreement from anyone. In fact, to get what you want, specifically and pointedly without agreement, is the ultimate expression of power, no?
In short, everyone wants, at some level, to be a mob boss who get’s whatever he wants via threats, intimidation and violence. We’ve all seen it on the elementary school playground, and therefore we should all be able to recognize it in world politics.
And so, to attempt to shame someone of that mindset is, I submit, to miss the point entirely. When in response to an irrational demand, we say, “That’s irrational”, well; Duh— The whole point of an irrational demand to make an irrational demand. That millions of people, including mass media, people of title, celebrities, et al, are standing up for such irrational demands is absolute proof, to the psychopath, that he is winning, that he is on the right path. It proves his authority, his power and influence.
We can surely placate ourselves by pointing out how much “smarter” we are (right up to the point of our arrests and executions), but that’ll never dissuade the powers-that-should-not-be. They relish their irrationality, and its expression in the use of coercive force.
YOU rely on objective data and rational argument. THEY rely on their coalition of coercion, destruction and death, which carries more weight in the world. When we argue with them then, we’re talking across purposes, and they know it but we don’t.
Not one, but two honorific titles he proudly wears in public. He must be such an esteemed and intelligent person!
Sorry, the only person I call ‘doctor’ is the person that dons the latex glove and gives me the annual physical.
The term, to me, means very little anymore.
Approximately half of the world has one, what’s the big deal?
