You don't understand, @CL


I mean, yeah, appeals to authority are inherently fallacious, but if you don't have an expensive education, you don't know there's a list of logical fallacies. And if you have such an education AND contempt for people who don't, you can use those logical fallacies cynically as a bully pulpit to shut down dissent with solipsism.

And that works, up to a point.

But when you stop talking to the opposition, they start talking among themselves, and when they start using logical fallacies cynically to create solipsistic propaganda, they're not going to even know it's unethical, kind of like muggers from the bad part of town who have been getting robbed since they were little kids.

They're going to assume it's fair game, because that's what the other side always does.

Imagine a trained boxer confronting such a mugger. The boxer is going to be confident in victory and moral superiority. The boxer might throw an elbow or a headbutt. And when the boxer gets done with all that, the mugger is going to stab him and take his wallet while he lays bleeding in an alley.

And yes, that was a metaphor for the presidential election.

Re: “Attorney Disbarred After Faking Divorce Papers

Therefore, we should choose our lawyer wisely. It is good to check out all the details and then hire him. Lawyers always have the respectable position in the society. It is good to visit social sites like, Facebook, Twitter or Yelp to read the reviews and their work experience.

Re: “First-Ever Bitcoin ATM Comes to Memphis

What an interesting article to read! I wonder how the emergence of these ATM's will affect the ATM rental industry. I think it should be an interesting shake up in the economy.

Re: “State Lawmakers Review Memphis Hiring Policies

HELL NO! If you don't like the city and its inhabitants, as evidenced by your choice of domicile, then you aren't capable of policing those same people. Police where you live. Remember that you Conservatives love to scream "local control is the best rule." Take care of your burgs.

Re: “Few Firm Answers on Future of Self-Driving Cars

There is a new king of parody at the Memphis Flyer!

"inevitable technology and one that could be used as an antidote to crowded street in the states metros"

AVs eliminate the problem, eliminate the human, Swope said.

"Sen. Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown) said he was proud to have sponsored legislation that helped Tennessee to get out front on AVs."

The technology is moving faster than we are.

All Hail!

This college schmuck has gone way beyond his 15 minutes. But it does bring up very important issues speech freedoms.
For instance yall might like to see how your state legislature along with speech oppressors in both parties are pushing anti 1st amendment legislation to outlaw the The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement. Yep the same successful tactic that helped to overthrow the racist regime in South Africa, which as I recall the tactic wasn't all that popular at the time, is being applied again in the mid east. And opposed again, here. By the batshit politicians of Tennessee and Democrats all over the place.

The Crystal Skull represents the Purified Heart. Crystal Clarity Christ Consciouness. Thats the Modern way of explaining One whom is Enlightened. In Biblical terms Tranfiguration.

Re: “Rhodes President Condemns 'Hate-Filled Essay' Written by a Student

Its his opinion and he is free to express it. It may not be popular but take it for what it is. White supremacy and kkk groups are a insignificant and shrinking group in our country. Trying to censor his speech or punish him for his opinions will only reinforce his thinking and likely pass this way of thinking on to his children. Having tolerance for all people and respecting their opinions will have a much more impact when it comes to changing someones mind about race and religion.

Re: “PCL Championship: Memphis vs. El Paso

No bubbles burst. Thanks for the clarification. A better phrasing would have been that Edman split the season between Class A and Double A. The point being, of course, that his first Triple-A at-bats took place in the PCL playoffs.

Pietrangelo graduated from Christian Brothers High School. Where is their statement? His actions and the Lance Sanderson case suggest CBHS has a long way to go regarding tolerance and diversity.

Re: “Flashback: Pyramid's Crystal Skull

This is a prime example of the unEnlightened. His Eye be full of Darkness... Forgive him Lord.

I can only say, it certainly amps up the story but folks if you dont understand scriptures and have not studied the significance of Pyramuds and what "Upon this Rock" actually means please do your research.. You will inevitably sound like a fool otherwise. Notice he refers to having a Blind Spot... That would be referred to as the Blund Ears...
