You may not, but your logical fallacy betrayed you lol.

Hi Susanna

Your logic ‘call’ is negated and somewhat laughable given your entire original post could be construed as a glaring example of logical fallacy 14b: ‘The Sweeping Generalization’ – I merely drew attention to it.

Seriously, politicians being good at B.S. and not having military careers? That applies to 99.9% of politicians worldwide. Gee willikers it’s akin to saying water’s wet.

I highlighted this defect in your ‘logic’ by casually citing 3 others who are of the same order. Good thing I didn’t mention DaNang Dick – that’d really confuse the sitchyation.

It’s a public forum - peoples comments invite reaction, comment and debate. U gave me an opening I could drive 2 Mack trucks thru side by side with room to spare. I took it.

You took your sweet time to respond to that. Well, we can’t all respond swiftly.

Mr. philosophy professor, you’re free to debate everything I say. You can point out any logical fallacy in my posts. I’m sure my posts are sprinkled with logical fallacies lol. You can state any opinion you like. You can make fun of me after your full day continuance. You can throw the book at me. Throw me under the bus. Free speech and all that.

But guess what? You’re still dead wrong. And please, next time, talk about real Mack trucks, not the ones you’ve got stocked up under your bed.

LOL

Some of us do work for a living – I was out literally out the door when u sent your ‘zingers’. I thought I’d get back to u the next day when I felt like it. Hope that’s OK…I’ve seen people do that here before.

Anyway u don’t get to decide the ebb and flo of debate regardless of how many faux ‘logic’ citations u issue – but thanks for playing anyway.

Also if I may, might I suggest first mastering basic concepts such as ‘estimating’ and ‘basic job creation’ before moving on to the study of logic.

And oh - i'm really devastated with your Mack truck zinger - it cuts to the quick.

LOL x 3

Oh, I’m so sorry, I should’ve warned you about my low intelligence quotient. You know how much nonsense stupid people can get themselves to say.

But let’s not be talking about me, that could easily get boring, and we wouldn’t want that, now would we? Let’s rather talk about your logical problem where you don’t recognize the numerous logical fallacies in your posts.

By the way. Your interpretation of the sweeping generalization is terrible.

LOL

Hi Susanna – so sorry, hope I didn’t keep ya waitin’ too long on pins ‘n needles, this thing called a ‘life’ keeps getting in the way ( but u just know how I live to respond to all your dazzling ripostes ! I’m saving ‘em up to get ‘em laminated! )

But what’s with the pity party? – you’re the one who began with the logic nonsense. So someone catches a grenade u lobbed and throws it back at u - boo hoo.

Anyhoo while I’m not an expert on logic… like some people I know! …I think ‘Sweeping Generalization’ is close enough for me but if you’ve googled a better term to describe your wonderment at politicians acting like politicians then I guess I’m OK wid it – but I’m not about to split sub atomic hairs with an electron microscope.

I'm sure u can find some stuff to pin on me in my writing - but who cares. Doing write ups as if I’m preparing technical specifications would be the greater fault.

Catch ya down the road!

Okay, note to self: don’t waste my time on people who take themselves too seriously. In case you didn’t notice, I was just messing with you.

Hi Susanna – excuse my tardiness - u’ve probably been waiting with baited breath and crossed fingers…again.

No hard feelings – see ya around the forums!

It doesn’t mean you’re right. It just means I’m done debating with you.

Now, now - the gal is bright, the only one that really zeroed in on relevant points during the whole "court".

Follow the money.
looks like some folks are following the $$$ and exposing some shady dealings involving your "saint" ...


Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat's chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of "dark money" in politics.



Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ decision to cap her office salaries at $80,000 will let her chief of staff and senior employees avoid public transparency laws that would require them to reveal outside income, gifts, and stock trading activity.
The New York Democrat announced last week that she would institute “living wage” rules in her office, paying staff members a minimum of $52,000 a year and a maximum of $80,000 a year.
Under federal law, congressional employees who earn more than $126,000 a year — which includes most chiefs of staff — must submit public financial disclosure forms that detail outside income they earn, stock investments, debt, and gifts or paid trips that they are given by outside sources.
...
The National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, said the $80,000 salary cap for Ocasio-Cortez’ senior staffers was concerning because it could be used to intentionally evade financial disclosure laws.
“Purposefully underpaying staffers in order to avoid transparency is an old trick some of the most corrupt members of Congress have used time and again,” said Tom Anderson, director of the NLPC’s Government Integrity Project.
“It would have [her] staffers fall below the financial threshold for public disclosures,” said Craig Holman, the public affairs lobbyist for Public Citizen, a government integrity group. “The cap that AOC would impose would bring the chief of staff under that threshold.”
Holman said Ocasio-Cortez should ask her chief of staff to make his information public voluntarily in the interest of transparency.
...
A spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez did not respond to questions about whether the congresswoman would ask senior staffers to comply voluntarily with the disclosure law.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to pass sweeping tax hikes on the wealthy, but the freshman lawmaker might want to take care of her own unpaid tax bill first.
Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations.
