13. Actually, very few people do, and most cannot even define the word 'fallacy,'

let alone identify different types of fallacies.

I blame this primarily on the conservative 'christians' who have worked very hard to voucherize schools and to be able to finance their children's education in 'christian' schools with public tax dollars. Not to mention the massive corporate money that began purposely changing the dialog in this country with the 1971 Lewis Powell Memo to the US Chamber of Commerce, followed by Reagan's 1987 pocket veto of the Fairness Doctrine, Citizens United, Super Pacs, the manufactured consent of our corporate-owned media, and finally the merchants of doubt paid by corporations to publish pseudo-scientific studies to cast doubt on things like the dangers of asbestos, tobacco, and carbon emissions.

If we really wanted to solve a lot of problems, we'd get rid of the primacy of the shareholder doctrine, which Warren is trying to do by introducing the Accountable Capitalism Act (August 2018), which would expand fiduciary responsibility of CEOs in publicly held companies beyond shareholder earnings to also encompass worker, consumer and environmental welfare. It would solve a lot of problems, that.

Unfortunately, back to your point, it won't do much to smarten up what Stephen King calls 'the Great Stupid.' We kind of have to do that ourselves through grass roots efforts with local school boards and so on.

17. I follow your logic because I received an A in my logic course in college.

So it goes without saying that we should leave it up to the readers to figure it out.

5. I had to google him

Here is a VOX article with more quotes. It's from 2016, and no, liberals do NOT love him.

As the saying goes, when they were handing out brains, he was nowhere to be found. He probably couldn't figure out where the line was.

Russia will be Satan's ally in the final showdown battle between good and evil. Look it up, nitwit. But I'm sure the man upstairs will let that slide, huh?

...although it seems the disparaging comment is clearly directed at the meme, not the poster of this meme...

21. The alert was unnecessary

I read that post last night before bed and never thought for a second it was directed at me. Glad the jury allowed it to stand.

8. I'm sick to death of religion

If there were a God he/she/it wouldn't give a f*** where people lived/born.... If there's something out there that created everything are you trying to tell me that he created some to be less than others? to be abused by others? to be hated by others? what kind of God is that?

It's not.

God is nothing more than a control mechanism for the rich and powerful,.....

Seeing someone use it like this makes me sick to my stomach

12. God favors Trump. Therefore...

 

God is a lie.
Trump is a lie.

Stop believing in stupid, make-believe bullshit. And stop pretending that it talks to you. You should be in a freaking mental institution.

14. FAILING FAKE syllogism.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syllogism

If both premises were true, the only conclusion which could be drawn would be:

Both God and Trump favor America.

The first premise is hotly debated. The second is empirically disproven -- about 8000 x over.
