    what you said was a blatant lie

    whoa! hey let's keep it civil

    sorry to butt in with points of order but i now have skin in this game because i read snapzu specifically to not read people namecalling

    the person you are replying to could very well be misinformed according to an Elle magazine piece about an interview on a MSNBC of Katie Porter

    however, NoWearingPants on snapzu is a source i have every bit of trust in as Katie Porter on MSNBC (in fact, i have more experience with and trust from interacting with NoWearingPants than Katie Porter - whom i never heard of before)

    so to call one of them a blatant liar is, in itself, misleading and granting some kind of credibility to one source over the other

    not to mention completely out of line

    granted i havent checked NotWearingPants' notes but I have not checked MSNBC's talking head's notes either so let's just go with that both pieces of information could be true and either of them could be false and that the truth is probably not be found in accusing one of them of lying

      truth

      Some say the sun rises in the east, some say it rises in the west, the truth probably lies somewhere in between, eh?

        Except nobody claims the sun rises in the west

        so keep pounding that strawman into submission

        There are people who believe the earth is flat. As Einstein said, there is no limit to human stupidity. And clearly my example was to show that it is not always necessary to accept that there are too sides to an argument. Sometimes one side is just wrong.

        But they will never admit they are wrong. A nurse in a news broadcast indicated a patient said she could not have covid cause it's a hoax,even as they were getting ready to ventilate her.

        whatever

        *two

        gtfo with that moving the goal posts shit to include flat earthers

        EiNsTeiN sAiD yOuR sTuPid cUz sOmE ppL beLiVE erTh fLAt

        just because flat earthers are labeled conspiracy theorists doesnt mean AOC is telling the truth

        you dont have proof of that. you dont

        so you are guilty of the hypocrisy you seek to expose

      Yes, thanks. This is generally my favorite place to visit, because people are kind and respectful to one another and discussions are civil.

        I completely agree, here but I still will call people out when I think what they are saying isn't true, although that is rare.

        I must say, I am finding US politics dismayingly, divisive and filled with lies at the moment and it seems easy to fall into the habit of liking something because it fits in with what you believe rather than whether it's true.

        Easily one of the truest statement on the interwebs.
