    :strawman: Who's sainting him? Name names.

    I will give you this, you're not pretending to be an optimist, at least.

    You may not know what to believe. Some of us rely on facts.

    Yes, by this November. That is what time they have. If they don't change and end up choosing between Biden and Trump, then there is no hope, not for any of us who aren't average, middle class white people, and even that hope for a return to normalcy will be short lived. People don't like hard lines. They don't like limits. People like to think they have more room to maneuver than they do. That is the situation people are in here in the U.S., whether they like it or not, whether they know it or not.

    Rats. Period
    Fires. Period.
    Disinformation. Period
    No one knows what to believe. Period.
    you do understand the concepts of lists, right.
    I’m not a rat. I’m not a fire. I’m not disinformation.

    All four of those items contribute to where this country is.
    but no, you don’t insult. :rollseyes:

    Again, you don't know what to believe. What makes you so certain this applies to everyone else?

    That is because rocket science uses engineers and not wordsmiths.

    The Biden Bootlicker squad loves to try and shame anyone who offers up facts that look bad for him. He has touched more women without permission than weinstein.

    Name names.

    And what an amazing equivalency between rape and unwanted touching of... hair, hands, and shoulders. Truly, you're an incorruptible moral compass.

    Pretending to be an optimist ....

    I'm really not sure what you mean here. Are you saying "if someone says they're an optimist, but is not optimistic about a Biden presidency, they are lying about being an optimist"?

    Or, do you think, "if someone really is an optimist, regardless of the circumstances, they will always be an optimist"?

    Not regardless of circumstances, but certainly when the scenario outcomes differ by magnitude, not kind.

    molestation is not a legal behavior. According to your logic I can go feel up any woman or man I want because that is not rape.

    It is one thing to say Biden might be more moral than trump. It is another to make excuses for a person who has molested women and children on camera many times over for the world to see. If you want to lick the boots of a person who who we have evidence of molestation that is fine, but don't blame me because you feel like a POS for being complicit and enabling. That is your burden, not mine.

    Maybe if you don't like the fact you are excusing the actions of a pervert and predator you might not do it. I am not endorsing creepy joe. If you cannot stand by your creepy vote don't blame me.

    I'm seriously wondering if you're just tossing words around without understanding their meaning again.

    Why don't you tell the class what you think "wordsmith" means?

    Who's licking boots? Name names. And show me the pictures of the children, cause I certainly don't remember seeing that. And no, not all unwanted touching is molestation. People can be indifferent to touching as well as actively not wanting to be touched. And again, you compared him unfavorably to Harvey fucking Weinstein. What the hell is wrong with you?

    And before you say it, "Not as bad as Trump" or "Not as bad as Harvey Weinstein" is so far from bootlicking, you'll have to take your head out of your ass to find it.

    What part of let me laugh even harder do you not understand?

    How is it possible that I have to use dayton size words for a wordsmith? What are your praxis scores?

    So you intend to use "wordsmith" as what you perceive as an insult.

    Can't answer Post #412, huh?

    I remember hearing things like this before, and normally they come from Trump excuse artists.

    I am not playing the let us make excuses for molestation game because a dem did it. We have a shitton of video from joe biden touching women and young girls far worse than Trump and Ivanka. If it is creepy for Trump to be all over his daughter, than Joe biden is also guilty of it.

    But like most men you don't have to worry about joe sniffing you up in a professional environment, so you want to pretend that shit is not completely unprofessional, out of line, and molestation. I get it. Try being on the other end of the unwanted touching by some horny pervert and you might just get it. Joe is not accidentally bumping into women. He is sniffing them and touching them intimately on purpose.

    Keep making your excuses for the dem. We see where you are. I don't play the game that it is OK as long as it is someone I like. That seems to enable and perpetuate the idea that men can just touch women.

    So, if a person is an optimist, then every situation that person would be optimistic?

    "Wordsmith"? No. But @Tererun seems to believe it is.

    Or were you referring to @Tererun's "Let me laugh even harder"? It was meant as an insult, but I wasn't insulted. Were you?

    Now, do the "walking and chewing gum" thing again. Totally not an insult.

    You think you're being clever, but you're not. I really think you are the one who doesn't understand the meanings of words.

    Either that, or you have no idea how to relate to other people.

    But, if you think what you said was not insulting, then I have to question your intelligence or your social skills.

    So you and @Tererun are allowed to try to insult me (note I said "try") and I'm expected to do what, exactly?
