    Uh, yeah...5cats, I`ve never seen you concede a point either. Ever. Everyone on here is always right. No matter what.

    Period.

    Can we PLEASE stop with the politics already? I just want to see a cat do something funny. Work is stressful enough.

    5Cats,
    That was really dumb. I was assuming this was posted by Ollie. The 1st 7 points on the checklist apply equally to conservatives. #8 doesn`t because the conservatives are the racists.

    Whatever.... Your side lost... So do whatever you can to make the smart people look bad so you can get the egg off your face.

    And... Uh... Last I heard, it`s spelled argument on this side of the "pond".

    Genius... Just like the rest of your group.

    Come at me bro(s)!

    Recent 5Cats argument:

    Me: "bush`s lowest approval rating was 24% on 11/08"

    5Cats: "so what that was after he was out of office"

    Me: "No. He was in office."

    5Cats: "I seem to remember an election in 2008"

    Me: "Yes, but he was still in office until late january 2009"

    5Cats: "Ya but after the election he was a lame duck, so he was EFFECTIVELY out of power"

    Is "Being a F.ucking Moron" on your checklist?

    @HolyGod: Are you suggesting Bush could sign a law after the election? he COULD but OBAMA would also need to sign it, or it wasn`t a law anymore!
    OUT.OF.POWER.
    Was Bush running for office in 2008? No?
    So, what`s you point exactly? That the MSM propaganda machine is effective? It is!

    @broizfam: You DO KNOW you`ve just done #6, eh? ;-)
    OF COURSE these "could apply" to every group, but ONE group uses these tactics EVERY time. Just look at @HolyGod`s offering on this thread: proof positive! He uses: 1,2,3,4,5, and 8! Although he substitutes "insults" for "racism" eh?

    @Patchouly: This is a work of comedy! It`s OBVIOUS who didn`t read it because they don`t know how funny it is!
    And true, it`s funny AND true!

    VV SEE! @elkingo actually read it! :-)

    "SKIM UNTIL OFFENDED:

    A poo flinging monkey never actually reads their opponent`s article (That could introduce them to dangerous badthink!). Instead they simply skim down the page until finding something that they can loudly proclaim you were offended by. Remember, being offended grants liberals super powers!

    Truthfully? I suppose @HolyGod didn`t even BOTHER to skim it: he just went right to poop tossing! That`s typical of him, eh? Why read it if you ALREADY KNOW FOR A FACT that it`s wrong? Doesn`t matter WHY it`s wrong, you`ll fling the SAME poop anyhow, correct @HolyGod?

    All I`m suggesting is that you said bush was "OUT OF OFFICE" in november of 2008 and that WAS WRONG. Not debatable. Now subjective. Not a matter of opinion. Not a viewpoint. Wrong. Plain and simple not up for discussion, doesn`t matter what you say, unequivocally, wrong.

    Every spin and line of bulls.hit that pours out of you other than, "you were right, he was still in office" is just further proof of what a b.itch you are and how completely unable you are to post an article about the correct way to debate.

    That`s all I meant.

    "Truthfully? I suppose @HolyGod didn`t even BOTHER to skim it:"

    Despite what you think I read every word of almost everything you post. All the serious stories about ACA or the shutdown I read, if for no other reason than to find points to pick apart.

    However I didn`t get past: "Or how you should just shut up and pay your fair share because crack whores need iPhones too?" before I felt I got far enough to make a judgement call that it was a complete and total waste of time.

    "Remember, being offended grants liberals super powers!"

    I`ve literally never been offended in my life. I think you are a world class moron, but nothing you have ever said or could ever say would offend me.

    Meanwhile you got offended when I said you were crazy. You also get offended on crakr`s behalf when I say he is on disability or medicare.

    @5Cats,
    There are liberals and libtards. There are conservatives and conservatards. The "tards" use all of these all the time because they`re tards. Except for #8, of course, since that`s (almost)only a conservatard line of thought.
    As far as I can tell, and I admit I may be over-reading him, @elkingo is also a knee-jerk conservative. It`s the knee-jerk characteristic that makes many people tards since it means they think what they`re told to think rather than actually putting real, thoughtful consideration into their opinions. There`s way too much of that kind of laziness in the world.

    "Out of Office" = "No Longer In Power"
    Same thing!

    Even if he still sits in the same chair? He`s no longer the "guy in charge".

    "Out of office" is an EXPRESSION! Ok? Mr.Literal? Sheesh!

    "In Office" = IN POWER! Another expression. See? Perhaps it`s too advanced for your liberal mind to grasp, but works can (occasionally) have more than one meaning!

    As of Nov.5 Bush was no longer "in Power" therefore he was no longer "in office" although he maintained the TITLE during the transition.

    THE TITLE! NOT THE POWER! How hard is it to understand such basic stuff?

    I`ve literally never been offended in my life.
    You`re literally a liar. Or delusional. I suppose you could be both at the same time...

    *words. (usually I try to fix my typos, but if there`s only one? MEH!)

    @broizfam: While there undoubtedly are "tards" on both sides (You`re doing "#6" again! lolz!) I find the left-tards FAR DUMBER than the right-tards. And louder! And lots more of them!

    Also? There are a lot more "smart-rights" than "smart-lefts" out there...

    And again I say! If you go one way far enough? Left OR Right? You end up on the other side!

    You didn`t say Bush had no power. You said he was out of office then. That is 100% factually incorrect.

    YOU MADE AN INCORRECT STATEMENT. YOU WERE WRONG. DEAL WITH IT.

    @5Cats

    PS: And if you`re getting "out of office" with "powerless" confused, that`s troublesome.

    Why the hell can`t you just admit that you mis-spoke? It`s not even an admission of a failed argument. You just used the wrong word to say what you meant. You meant to say powerless, but instead accidentally said out of office. A frigging TYPO!

    You`re seriously incapable of admitting to a TYPO?

    Mate...seriously...mental illness, remember? You need to take a moment to check your mind and your motivations, because you`re seriously showing some instability with this.

    The author of this article writes as if the conservatives are impassionate, moderate, fatherly dispensers of "the truth" to those insane, emotion-crazed, deluded, pitiable liberals...

    ...and he writes it in a vitriolic, insult-laced spew. And everything you write on this forum is in a similar crazed rant.

    How do you marry this calm, noble self-image with the reality of how you and some other conservatives actually act?

    So @HolyGod? You`ve confessed to trolling then? ic...

    @Musuko42: WHAT POWER? After Nov.4 he could do NOTHING without the signature of the NEXT PotUS! No appointments, no signing of laws, nothing!

    Out of office = Whatevers! The "low popularity poll" came AFTER he was a "lame duck". Anyhow? What are Obama`s numbers like these days? And Obama has the "lapdog media" on his side! NOT drumming hate 24/7 like they did AGAINST Bush.

    How is "Bush`s Popularity" even relevant?

    I remind @Musuko42 That this "article" is HUMOUROUS, not a Thesis Paper... ffs...

    Looks different from the other side, of course.

    @broizfam: Yes, absolutely! Duh? I`ve never once suggested otherwise.

    @kangoala: Do you mean @Musuko42? because @broizfam is making sense to me... Musuko? Not so much...

    "How is "Bush`s Popularity" even relevant?"

    IT ISN`T. The only thing that is relevant is that you are wrong. Anyone with a brain would think so and you just CAN NOT admit it over something so simple. I just find it funny.

    "Out of office" is NOT a saying for "out of power". You`re making up "sayings" to try to talk your way out of being wrong. It is just hilarious. That`s all.

    Yes, yes, I get what you were TRYING to say: Bush was powerless at that point, his low ratings were because of that. I GET IT.

    But you didn`t SAY that. What you DID say is that he was out of office. That statement was incorrect. You made a mistake. You mistyped.

    And you seem utterly incapable of just admitting it and moving on! Why can`t you just say "whoops, my bad, what I meant to say is this..."?!

    What is WRONG with you, 5Cats?

    @Musuko42: Fine, a meaningless technicality that STILL MAKES NO DIFFERENCE to @HolyGod being wrong.

    Bush`s "popularity" in Nov 08 is as important as Queen Victoria`s: It`s MOOT.

    You want to pretend Bush still mattered? That "being in office" means something when he`s a LAME DUCK? Fine!

    It`s still moot. Meaningless. See how vigorously you guys follow the checklist? :-) Kind of IRONIC eh?

    It wasn`t moot. AJ and I were comparing the low points of presidential approval ratings. It was completely relative to the conversation we were having. You jumped into the middle and sprayed stupid all over everything.

    @CreamK: it`s a question of "degree" eh?

    If one side does it 10% of the time...
    ( a PURELY made-up number, fyi)
    And the other does it 35%...

    Are they "the same"? Or is one "more guilty" of this crappy behaviour?

    Because merely on IAB I`ve seen lefty-liberals do these things CONSTANTLY. On entirely NON-POLITICAL POSTS! There`s several examples from just the past few days, ffs!

    Yes, righties "do it too" but FAR less often.

    But we get accused of it! Because that`s part of the "Alinsky Playbook"! Accuse the opponent of nonsense, pounce on him when he denies it!

    Not kidding, it`s a fact.
