Thief.You're trying to figure out a way to get your hand into someone's pocket instead of trying to earn for yourself.
Crook. Don't pretend I took this out of context.That makes you a crook. That is the definition of thievery. Until the liberals put the "tax" exception into the definition of thievery it was plainly obvious.
Unintelligent and uneducated.Only someone who is extremely unintelligent and uneducated would advocate such a collosal failure.
Lazy or incompetent. You choose.You on the other hand have your hand out. You think those like me that make their own way owe people like you something. We don't and we will never stand for it. It's people like me that keep this country running. We will not be slaves to other people's laziness or incompetance.
Greedy. Thief.Calling me ignorant and greedy goes against everything I've said in this thread. I would contend that it is you who is greedy. You are wanting to steal the wealth from those that have earned it and give it to those that have not. THAT is greed. You see someone else has something and you want it.
Crazy. And I didn't say I was a lune.You admitted you are a left wing lune
Stupid.Had you read and been able to comprehend you would know that.
Liar. The proof you speak of is you saying it's right. That's not proof.That's why you're lying. Just like a true liberal you will lie even when the proof is just a few posts back.... hoping that anyone else reading this will miss it.
Liar.You both ignored that and tried to lie
Stupid.You failed to comprehend... and we can't expect any more from you.
Liar.You clearly just lied there. Anyone that has read this can see that.
Poor.we're the ones who are paying for you to live in that government housing and eat that free cheese.
There. Multiple instances. I'd quote all of my posts since I started in about the graph and article to show you that in no way would someone logically think I'm defending anyone. I never said I agree with him. I just told you that you're wrong until you can provide some proof. Quotes are only useful if they're from a credible source which you are not, unless you're writing an English paper in high school. This isn't the type of situation where quoting people works. You know, I've now quoted several instances where you've put me down and called me names. If you want me to quote the times you've tried ad hominem on me, go ahead and ask. You'll see another post like this.Please quote these statements. ALL of them. If you can't show that I called you these, you certainly have lied.
You put the word "just" in my mouth. I didn't say just. I said it's what should be focused on rather than being better than everyone else because that promotes greed.You DID say that was your view and I quoted it.
You didn't have to. Saying I didn't comprehend is saying that I didn't understand. Saying I didn't understand is saying that I was unable to understand. Saying I was unable to understand was saying I'm stupid. See the connection there?Where did I use that word?
Abraham Lincoln once said, "Bitches ain't shit." See what I did there?Sure. Quotes from FDR's treasury secretary completely disproving the liberal's case is obviously meaningless. Awesome call bro.
I don't claim to be a referee of anything, and I don't need anyone to validate that I am. The only thing that matters is that people see that you can't provide what I've asked. I can't physically force you to do anything, but the fact that you don't want to just end our silly argument has to make everyone wonder whether or not what you've said can even be taken seriously.You're not the referee and you have no authority here. YOu are attempting to control the discussion. YOu cannot give me an ultimatum. I've already proved you wrong and you cannot refute it.
What exactly have you proved wrong? That you have any kind of consensus between scholars(other than the two at UCLA) versed in economics and history that say that FDR, or rather a socialistic movement caused or prolonged the Great Depression.
We both know that's not going to happen. Who said I wanted to be a referee? You need to get your words away from my mouth, bro.I'll tell you what. When you get a petition signed by 500 members of this board saying that you have some authority to referee this discussion and determine who is right or wrong, I will get your 5 articles.
Again, you're claiming I'm doing something I'm not. It's not an attempt to play anything, it's an attempt to find out the truth and possibly prove you wrong while doing it.I already did that. It's done and over with and you know your cause is defeated so you're making a hilarious attempt to play the referee and get me to play your game.
Find me one statement in which I defended him, and maybe you've got a valid claim. Like I said, I have no alliances with anyone. I'm just You're pretty paranoid, bro. Liberals and socialists have differing views. This isn't black and white, like I said earlier in the topic. There are bound to be other conservatives and advocates of capitalism in the topic, but you don't see me yelling at them for ganging up on me.So you trolling a troll takes away the fact that you're in here defending him after admitting that you are both liberals/socialsts? I'm just supposed to ignore the fact that you are uniting against a common enemy? Awesome bit of logic bro.
Like I've said in every single topic I've made about this, YOU HAVE NO PROOF. You have claims, and that's all you have. You can't call if proof because you believe it. Proof isn't something you can decide is there because you say it is. Proof comes from a reasonable acceptance of a truth or a fact. You know, I read through the article again and the very first sentence proves what I'm saying.Do you feel better? I provided proof. It's proof that you can't refute, so you're looking for sources to try to refute instead. You can have them with a simple google search.... You will get them from left, right, and whatever sources that you cannot discredit. I provided the quotes and the truth. You can find sources anywhere.... the difference is if YOU find them... you can't discredit them all.
Do you see where it says it's not a universal fact? You don't. I know. "Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years..." Throughout the article, there were quotes from other people. None of the quotes said, "You're right! FDR is the cause for the prolonged Depression!" They all applauded the economists for coming up with a new theory, and talked about the fact that it would be nice to understand what the actual cause was. They didn't say the economists were right, and they're all well known people in their field. What makes you think your opinion matters?Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years, and they blame a suspect previously thought to be beyond reproach: President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
