Why do youse guys keep picking on Fuzz so much?


Voices are good from both sides. MCW too.


We need to unify. It starts in places like this place. We're all USA Americans here.


Common ground can be found on that premise alone, right?
I can think of two areas that I agreed with Fuzz on.
1. World population is a major issue. We disagree on how to address it. I would stop incentivizing folks to procreate. I think Fuzz wants to have a conversation.
2. Tennessee Football. We disagree on their destiny for mediocrity. But we are both fans.
See there, we have common ground.

That we are all USA Americans would be a start, from "his" side and "your" side.


Common ground, man. We all have that, at least.
Nope Jersey does not count. :lol_hitting:
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

The House predictably is trying to keep whatever potential flaws Trump may have in the news.  These are political moves targeted at 2020 to incense the base, nothing else.

The same is true with impeachment hearings on Trump.  It's hardball politics, and the Republicans do it in their own way of course.

Curiously, I don't think it's going to help much, the base is already as riled up as they can be.

Since he tends to lean towards the liberal side and has done so on several rulings along with Ruth "Biddy" Ginsburg liking him which should tell us a lot I think they would be doing us a favor.

Then Trump could appoint a true conservative.

Yet Ford’s family refused to confirm her testimony, nor did any of her friends, many who are liberal and suffered extreme pressure to confirm Ford’s account.  Yet Ford’s testimony was contradictory and illogical in many instances.  And Ford’s conduct was less than upstanding in high school - a fact the White House refused to point out lest they be accused of smear tactics and the MSM willfully chose to ignore.

Nadler’s Mueller investigations must be a complete flop, thus his pivot to Kavanaugh.  The man has zero interest in legislating - only seeking to fire up his base for 2020.  Pathetic and SAD!

What is one ruling off the top of your hear where he leaned to the liberal side?

I'd almost forgotten how disingenuous you can be.  How could anyone else but the perpetrators (who were likely too drunk to remember) "confirm" her testimony if the incident happened behind closed doors?  They believe her - why didn't you mention that if you're being honest and fair? 

Yet Ford’s testimony was contradictory and illogical in many instances.

It wasn't contradictory in any relevant sense, and it was only illogical in that it made no sense for her to put Kavanaugh's close friend in the room if she was making up the story.  It also made no sense for her to put her friend in the house if she didn't even remember the party.  But that's what you do if you're just telling the truth. 

And Ford’s conduct was less than upstanding in high school - a fact the White House refused to point out lest they be accused of smear tactics
 
I'm accusing you of smear tactics, and rightfully so.

I can think of two areas that I agreed with Fuzz on.



1. World population is a major issue. We disagree on how to address it.
 
I don't think there's a way to address it - I think it's too late and we've already irreparably destroyed the planet's ecosystem (but do lament that it's getting worse). 

I would stop incentivizing folks to procreate. I think Fuzz wants to have a conversation.

Yes. 

2. Tennessee Football. We disagree on their destiny for mediocrity. But we are both fans.

Thank you for fairly representing my perspective.  I didn't know that was possible here. 

See there, we have common ground.

Over population at some point has a way of self correcting, see Thomas Malthus (even though he was tactically wrong).

The one thing humans have is technology which can extend the timeline unpredictably with things like the Haber process.

That should make any list of major innovations/inventions/discoveries/whatevers in human history.

"I'm accusing you of smear tactics, and rightfully so. "


Do you realize how ridiculous you sound after the Kavanaugh hearings and you claiming to believe every word that was said?

Well, he selectively believed every word said by one side and not the other.

Good point, Cincy.  What would the board do without your wise perspective? 

A few examples would be that I didn't believe him when he said that Keyser, "said it didn't happen."  Do you?

I also didn't believe him when he said he never lost his memory due to drinking.  Do you? 

I also didn't believe that was his definition of the term "boofing."  Do you?

HK said, "And Ford’s conduct was less than upstanding in high school."

That's a smear.  

Please either cut and paste a smear I've leveled at Kavanaugh, or retract and apologize.  

Believing someone's accusations against someone is not smearing them.  A smidgen of common sense would have told you that.
