They're NOT biases. They are facts. Well-documented historical facts that undeniably bare an uncanny resemblance to the events of today, in a multitude of respects.

"Hypocrisy" is when you accuse someone of biases while blatantly exhibiting your own. More so when you obviously can't be bothered to inform yourself on the historical record of the origins of European fascism in the 20th Century.

Read a history book, for God's sake.

if one owns a nearly $700,000 lakefront home are they in a position to complain that taxpayers are not paying for their healthcare?

move to a $100,000 home and use the money from the sale of the more expensive home (about $600,000) and the savings on property/school taxes to pay for their own healthcare

Coming from someone who's never contributed a single salient point in their entire forum narrative, It's likely that no one would know better than you.

On the other hand, anyone familiar with the term, need look no further than it's definition and the original fallacy referred to. Unless of course, you need it explained to you.

Sorry, Triumph... defeated, again.

Mice and a whales are both mammals. Equating the two is beyond absurd.

Good point. Alcoholism is actually a worse addiction. So he's an even bigger hypocrite than first appears.

Respectfully, neither is true.

It depends on the individual on a case-by-case basis. Also on how its effects are quantified.

i doubt if Thomas Jefferson or any former president ever said "the press is the enemy of the American people" as Trump said.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/polit...eople/98126656/

WASHINGTON President Trump's long-term rhetorical war on the press is heating up again, thanks to a tweet declaring the media "the enemy of the American people" and concerns that Trump's increasingly acerbic rhetoric is the cutting edge of authoritarianism.

"If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free -- and many times adversarial press," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaking on NBC's Meet The Press. "And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time that's how dictators get started."

Ah yes. Most people just subscribe to this paper but don't read it! To get their news they listen to Fox News which is fair and balanced. grin

A well-armed public is not likely to attack a potential dictator if they have no idea what the truth is. With no freedom of the press, the public has no idea what the truth is. Oh and I fully support the second amendment.

Why do sooooo many believe in being well-armed with guns but not with actual FACTS?

You sure do have a well-stocked armory of talking-points ammo, don't you?
