Isn't there a rule about mentioning Nuclear Weapons during a 2nd Amendment discussion?

If Obama said ALL Nukes then YES! He`s willing to get rid of ALL Nukes including the ones the USA has.
De facto!
If ALL nukes were gone, and no more were ever built, the world MIGHT be a sefer place... or it might erupt in "conventional warfare" like it has for the last 3,000 before nukes came about.

The reason it`s a dumb idea to "wish that" is that new nukes could be built (in theory) and whoever had a few of those would suddenly be the most dangerous nation on the planet.

You`d have to destroy all the N-Power plants try to prevent it, but THAT would be a massive environmental disaster! (trying to replace all those GiGWs...)

Still: If he DIDN`T want all the Nukes gone, why "wish for it"? It`s "advocacy" which means it`s a good idea (in the speaker`s mind).

?? How am I "wrong"? I've acknowledged that it might mean what you say, I don`t deny it "could be taken that way".
I do say that even if it does mean what you say, it`s "moot", it doesn`t change me being right in any way.
Advocation is a positive statement about someting. Practicality of chance of success are MOOT.


You claimed
yet I haven`t once, ONCE, heard someone advocate for all guns being made illegal

I said D.Feinstein and 100 others. You said "Oh no, she was being "hypothetical" and that doesn`t count.

Follow the link to the word, again, and find me the "it`s just wishful thinking" exemption from it`s meaning...

Or argue that I`m the one who doesn`t know what a word means, if it makes you "feel good about yourself" even if you have no idea what "advocate" means...

Let's say Obama said "If I could make the world free of nuclear weapons I would". Would you take that as him advocating for the U.S. getting rid of all their nuclear weapons? Or would you simply take it as him talking about a hypothetical situation that would be ideal but clearly not in any way realistic?

"That's the word you used: advocate"

I already admitted you were right. She did advocate for all guns being taken away, if only musingly. Why are you still beating that horse?

"you`ve never heard of Dianne Feinstein before?"

I am very familiar with her and that quote in particular.

The second thing we disagreed about was whether or not the statement was "hypothetical" which you seem to think requires context because you obviously don`t know what hypothetical means.

"...I guess you just affirm what a lot of people on here say about you."

I simply meant the fact that they say you never admit when you are wrong.

"They would invest in R & D if they had the capitol"

SO? Are they advocating FOR or AGAINST "R&D"? Obviously they're advocating FOR it. That`s the word you used: advocate.

THAT is the topic! Not "what she meant" but "did she advocate" for it? Yes, obviously. Unless you claim she was being sarcastic... :rolleyes:

Unless you claim you`ve never heard of Dianne Feinstein before? (I`ve mentioned her several times on IAB... as have others) I`m still correct, no excuses.

Shall I look up "moot point" for you? Hypothetical or not is "moot"...

[quote]...I guess you just affirm what a lot of people on here say about you.[/quote]
You`d be happy if I said that about yo mama? I think not.

It`s also a brutally bad Rhetological Fallacy...
