The They Finally Got Her Thread

Recommended Posts

Go back and look it up. My conversation was with someone else and you jumped in and changed it.

you get that this is a public thread with thousands of posts, right? people aren't "jumping in", they're participating in the public discussion, which is why i corrected your demonstrably false statement. i didn't take your statement that "all budgets are a series of credits and debits" and try to prove it wrong. this is a lie, or you seriously have trouble following even basic conversations. for one, you're skipping a few posts that list the actual falsities that i took issue with, and then you're switching the subject of the discussion from one issue to another - probably because the actual issue is utterly indefensible and you're playing dishonest revisionist at this point.

 so, uh, what did i actually take issue with? this:

The problem is the spending.  Just like your household budget. If you are struggling,  you find ways to cut expenses. 

you claimed that 'the problem' was 'spending', and based this on categorical similarities that you perceive between household and government budgets, specifically at the federal level.

you reiterated the original claim in a new form, here:

On 5/16/2020 at 3:34 PM, BamaBirdLady said:

Budgets, whether a 100k budget or a 100 trillion budget work exactly the same. 

i pointed out why this was extremely dumb for several different reasons - that the tools available to governments simply don't exist for individual families, that economic decisions made by a single household don't really impact the larger economy, and that the macroeconomic factors don't apply at all to households but do apply to governments. i have repeated these things, over and over, for what feels like multiple days. you have never addressed a single one of these issues. 

instead, you just ignored all of them, and then attempted to move the goalposts with this statement:

On 5/16/2020 at 4:13 PM, BamaBirdLady said:

Budgets are all credits and debits.  That is how a household budget is the same as a national budget. 

and here's where you're now lying or simply incapable of following the conversation. the above statement is complete gibberish. for one, the bolded sentence is flatly irrevelant. it's a red herring - because it is not an actual argument. i mean, how absurd is this?

"budgets are all math. that is how a household budget is the same as a national budget"

"budgets are all computed by human beings. that is how a household budget is the same as a national budget"

in all three of these cases, the original sentence is a pointless premise. it has no logical attachment to the latter sentence at all. it literally doesn't follow. 

but now you're here trying to pretend that i'm somehow challenging "budgets are all credits and debits". what? this is nonsense, i don't care about that statement at all. it has nothing to do with the existing conversation, and you either know that and are now lying about this or you genuinely don't understand what we're actually talking about.

while i generally never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence, in this particularly case i'm leaning towards the former.

There's blissful ignorance of anything related to Saudi Arabia.

MAGA doesn’t care about anything but owning libs.  They’d probably commit self mutilation if it meant some lib would be upset or hurt by it.

Liberals and leftists alike don't seem to get too up in arms over Saudi Arabia.  It seems to be across the board.

I stand by my previous statement and also agree with this statement

Almost commented on it earlier, regarding the Trump “Truth Over Facts” site, that I thought it was a Biden phrase originally.

His director of communications confirmed it.

Not everyone.  But there never seems to be much outrage from anyone with how in bed we are with them.

this is just from the jacobin in the past couple of years:

if you're talking about like, here, it's not really a topic that garners much disagreement among abf posters so it's not really going to generate pages of discussion.

The TDS flush :flush:

With all the Insp Gen firings for doing their job investigating recently uncovered activity by upper staff you'd think an honest POTUS would allow them to finish and give a report rather than dump 3 of them ?  Doesn't say much for you trumpamzees who turn blind eyes. SAD.

Of course he’s not taking it.  He’s had Fauci inject him with disinfectant and UV light.

Shoot, I had my hopes up on the hydroxycr@p.

Jesus already shined the light into Trump. I’ve seen a few paintings which documented that event.
