You're getting pretty full of shit[edit]

I don't know what is rotting your brain, but how on earth can you simultaneously go "taxes are bad, it's sparking debate even among dems" and then "her proposed social programs are bad because they'll raise deficits" and not realize how you're contradicting yourself? No "Aha" moment, even as you put two directly antithetical concepts side by side and back both of them.

Jesus, Nerd, whatever right wing bullshit you ate as you aged made you real goddamn good at not thinking. I know it's not good to hero-worship politicians and all, but you've descended into an alternate paradigm where you refuse to actually acknowledge the meaning of the very same words you say when ignoring them lets you make one more attack. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:06, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Read this, Reed! If there is a problem, you are welcome to come here and discuss in a civil manner. If you cannot do that, go somewhere else! I'm getting sick and tired of your abrasiveness. Nerd (talk) 17:11, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm getting sick and tired of your disingenuous right wing bullshit that treats fact like a play thing. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:59, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
That is patently false! I made sure almost everything I said is backed up by at least one reputable source or a primary source. Check the sources and see how well what I wrote correlates to them. That's what they are there for. Nerd (talk) 19:10, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Okay, that's nice, but did you read what the problem I described was? I was fairly specific in this case. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:45, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Hmm. Could you explain yourself better? I'm merely reporting what the sources say. (Mind you, I carefully selected them.) Perhaps, I'm being inconsistent. But there is a further possibility that the person or people I am reporting on are inconsistent. Like I said, check the sources. Nerd (talk) 19:51, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Admin?[edit]

Are you an admin, by any chance? I'm very new here, and I'm trying to find my way around. Also, what's the point of this site? I read your Donald Trump page, and it seems like this site is very liberally-biased... Libertarianmoderate (talk) 17:37, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

@Libertarianmoderate I'm an a "system operator" or Sysop. But that title does not mean much, frankly, because it is granted to anyone who has been here for a while and proves themselves to not to be a troll or a vandal.
Our objectives are:
  1. Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement;
  2. Documenting the full range of crank ideas;
  3. Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism;
  4. Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media.
I would be lying if I said this website does not have a liberal bias. However, I am not the sole contributor to our page for Donald Trump. My recent edits are mainly organizational in nature. I am focused on his infrastructure policies and his connection with Russia. (Please see my personal page and my edit history.)
Since you mentioned on your personal page you are familiar with Wikipedia, we use the same software here, albeit an older version. Nerd (talk) 17:45, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Venezuela[edit]

The stuff I put in about the socialism argument wasn't saying the argument itself is valid, just acknowledging that people like to make it to dismiss socialism as being inherently bad. FWIW I don't think the argument is that compelling. So I think it should be restored just to discuss that people on the right like to compare things they don't like to Venezuela.

Physics pdf.[edit]

Twice now (possibly more but I have no indication of such) a BoN has requested that their... let's call it "idea" be posted on this site as a reputable model to physics and astrophysics. In both known instances they have linked to this pdf, which first goes into railing against existing theories (never a good sign, generally indicates crankery and woo-woo) then delves into what is either technobabble or physics technical knowledge that goes over my head. Would you be willing to take a look? (Warning, pdf creator denies Hawking Radiation. Warning, terminal stupid may be enclosed, read at own risk.) ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 00:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
