It is a great quote. I’ve remembered it for years and think of it every time Justice Thomas is mentioned. He’s the best Justice on the USSC, IMO. Wish he’d talk more.
Youve got it backward, chief. That is if I correctly understand your fractured sentence.
You were given a generalization, and you justified your behavior by treating it as if you were given an explicitly universal premise. That is a straw man by definition.
Your point of view happens to be the status quo. Therefore, it is very easy for you to presume your point is made without ever actually making it.
The only way for me to break through your presumption is do demonstrate where your position violates universal norms of logic and reason, not to make fancy insults (as you seem to believe is my motivation).
FR is indeed the place to discuss such differences, but it requires discussion, not rote repetition of the cliches underpinning the status quo.
You are funny. I’m not going to play anymore. I think you are wrong; you think I’m wrong and that is the status quo. I think your position is illogical; I’m sure you think mine the same. We have been unable to communicate but I bear you no ill will.
It is a unique experience for me and that is in some ways a good thing.
And youll never get any further than that if all youre interested in is play.
No that’s my point I’m done playing. Playing is what you do.
You shift the definitions and the terms. You are not honest in your debate; you accuse and use personal attack but never prove any of your so called points or offer any concrete information. You are free to believe what you want but you need a new patsy. I have expended all the time and attention I am willing to spend on someone who is unable to see past the point of their nose. So stop trying to dazzle me with your footwork; you are no logistician.
Then you should have no problem citing an example.
On the other hand, if you were intellectually dishonest, and just trying to save face before disengaging from the discussion, youd provide some painfully transparent excuse such as youre not worth my time for NOT providing said example.
Do you even know the meaning of the words you use? Example of what?
I gave examples at the beginning of the thread, concrete examples of how man and women have both been patriotic and sacrificed for our country.
You called that cherry picking. I explained that examples refute generalizations. In the most concrete sense I showed that women & men have behaved the same way because of strong political belief. Not all men or all women just some.
You danced side wards and said I was trying to conflate generalizations with universal premises and that is a scurvy trick of liberals. As far as I can tell it the two are entwined, not separate at all so perhaps the Liberals are not so tricksey after all. I gave you the philosophical text that laid out the close relationship.
Your statements are ambiguous and shift to attack new strawmen rather than actually stating your beliefs and defending them. My tagline was chosen to remind myself to disengage and I will do so now. You may have your last word.
Are you really trying to claim confusion of what I asked for IMMEDIATELY AFTER A DIRECT QUOTE?
No, examples refute UNIVERSAL CLAIMS, not generalizations.
Then you have no business giving opinions on subjects you don't understand.
But again, you give no example. Precisely as I predicted.
While you question (based on what misuse) my knowing the meaning of the words I use, I question your understanding the words YOU use "have meaning."
My posts 36 and 38 easily demonstrate I HAVE stated my beliefs (as if that had anything to do with refuting your own) and you have presented no objection to them.
It's no wonder the left expects their campaign of unqualified accusation to work with the likes of you floating around.
You have given no example. You merely say women are prone to different"evils". That is something I chose not to respond to because it is meaningless. Did God give a different set of commandments to women?
And you are being willfully obtuse. The entire history of humanity shows men are prone to physical aggression, and women are prone to alternative methods of aggression.
Don't bother trying to rehabilitate your blatant duplicity now. You are not worthy of MY time.
You comments are more and more unraveled. Lizzy Borden appreciates your distinctions I’m sure.
My duplicity in not agreeing with you and offering facts, textbook and logic is indeed heinous and will not abate.
There are so many books on violent women I was spoilt for choice. Just cast your hook into the sea of google and you too can catch one.
You might want to take that up with the authors I sent you. The ones teaching classes at the Graduate level in University. Perhaps they too are fools and only you are wise.
