    It is people like you that make me want to keep coming to Snapzu. Decent, real and compassionate people. For the record, I am not a Trumpster.

    I think he is dangerous.

    You won't/can't persuade anyone else unless you, yourself is open to persuasion.

      What reasons can you think of that might explain the trouble you've had convincing people global warming is bunk?

        I was of age and witnessed and investigated the initial B.S. surrounding this creation. I was not raised and or taught to believe. Any one who witnessed the outright lies/propaganda in the initial stages of this "science" knew/ know to be more than just a little skeptical.

        I am aware I probably can not convince any one raised with this "knowledge" any different.

        All I can do is urge more to approach it with a critical mind which would involve a very time consuming investigation, of which I have been able throughout its development.

          "Critical" is one thing, trolling another. No matter how carefully or thoroughly it's been put to you, you'll grasp at any straw at all to justify your denial. It isn't Socratic dialogue with you around staggeringly obvious climate change, it's trollish, delusional faith. Mind you, I'm all for radically objecting to dogmas as a reflex reaction. When you're invoking Wheeler's woo-woo business cycle hokum to deny settled science, though, you're flat earthing.

          Now then, what different choice could you've made about posting the fake gory fetus imagery along with the Operation Rescue press release about the fake documentary about Planned Parenthood selling fetal tissue for profit?

            I gave you a thoughtful answer to your initial question

            " Disagree with Someone? Calling Them a Moron Won't Help" If you truly wished to further have a "discussion" then your approach sucks.

            One does not normally approach another, name calling and flinging allegations.

            Since you have made it quite obvious your opinion(s) of me, maybe you should just let it go and move on.

            I have no interest in entering into such contentious dialogue.

              @AdelleChattre -

              All I will/can do at this point is refer you to my last answer/comment.

              I truly do hope you can overcome your bitterness and hopefully the rest of your life is good.
