    Well, you should have, for the former is relevant to Hillary's centrism and the latter is relevant to how 'conservatives' process information.

    Sometimes, the stuff you leave out, and the topics you dodge reveal the flaws in your arguments.

    Flaws? FLAWS in his "arguments"? You're generous to a fault.

    Referring to McCain and McConnell as republicans is enough of a stretch, conservative is just ludicrous. Coburn found it difficult to say bad things about anybody, though he managed to in Harry Reid’s case.

    The tactics used by our conservative friends just on this thread alone are very revealing. Come out punching hard, hurling insults and derision, anything to avoid actually addressing the specifics of the topic. It’s utterly transparent. If you can’t argue the facts, call your opponent a fool. Mock him. Be unpleasant enough to stifle further conversation. If you do it loudly and aggressively enough, they might even stop talking to you, and then you can gloat over your “win”. You don’t actually have to be right as long as you can convince your cronies that you won. It’s important to put across the facade that you’re a winner, especially when reality isn’t cooperating.

    We see right through you.

    That explains why they're still alive, but one might be forgiven for wishing they would be a tad less restrained and allow natural selection to do its thing.

    Preferably before breeding.

    Good observation, but they can't see it.

    The selective arguing does reflect the selective believing - but, to be fair, they may not actually register the stuff they appear to ignore.

    There is a known psychological response to things that seriously dismantle your world view - your logical frontal lobe will switch off until you go around the problem, or explain it away.
    If one can't explain it away, or go round it, then it is absorbed as a personal emotional attack (remember frontal lobe is off, so its all emotion) - hence the most common response from the right for things that reveal their lack of sophistication is, "You're an a$$h#le". The hippocampus kicks in and its fight or flight. They are truthfully incapable of responding clearly and logically (intelligently).

    So remember kids; they believe they are under attack and so the ad hominem attack is completely acceptable to them.
    It is observably, staggeringly, consistent within our little sample group here on the forum.

    (Believe, its a word that pops up regularly when talking to conservatives - sigh.....)

    Why?
    Do so many people believe hillary is guilty of all those things republicans charged her with, investigated, and cleared her of?

    Do so many think trump is a good businessman when so many of his businesses have gone out of business?

    Do so many believe he’s serious about bringing jobs back when he’s made no effort to make any of his products here?

    Are so many so very afraid of the extremely isolated incidents of killings by foreigners but have no problem with us killing each other?

    Does no one follow gunshot victims and cover health insurance problems they have and how it costs us all?

    Do some people believe trump and putin rather than all our intelligence agencies?

    Can’t we have a conversation on how to prevent our daily murders?

    Do we tolerate over 100 people working at the white house when they cannot get security clearance?

    Do many think getting rid of regulations is a good thing? Do they really want smog to return? Warnings to not eat fish because the water they swim in is too polluted?

    I don’t get it!
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    Another conservative believing conservative fake hate news.
    At least he got fired for being stupid.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...shawn-harrison

    In recent years, mass shooting survivors and victims’ families have been subjected to online harassment and attacks from conspiracy theorists who go viral on social media by falsely claiming the tragedies were hoaxes and that witnesses and grieving relatives were paid “crisis actors”.
    Rightwing media, however, have quickly responded with attacks on the young activists mourning their deceased classmates, and conspiracy theories proven to be false appear to have even influenced a legislative staffer.
    Attacking survivors - another low point for conservatives - maybe they know they are being repulsive, but feel that to promote their ideology of hate and greed, they accept they will do dispicable things?
