I'm sorry, but this is just so hilariously deserved that I truly enjoy rubbing it in. No quarters until they change the error of their ways!
So basically doing whatever you can to troll and derail the thread.

Nice. I've seen people get banned for less. Maybe you should see how far you can push it with the mods and start selling your pharmaceuticals on here.

as there are a few yanks on this thread, can you answer me this

Why are americans so obsessed with healthcare? why do you see it as some kind of status symbol that must be denied to the lower classed?? I really can't get my head round why anyone would want to deny healthcare to anyone else, especially if you're from 'the most powerful country in the world'
it's a good question, and I have no idea. Except that it might be too socialist to provide healthcare to the "lower classes". And it's not even the lower classes any more, it's the middle classes too.

A bit like Phos does on every post. Nothing of substance, just point scoring. No facts, just opinion and "sentiment" and "feeling" is enough to convince yourself you are making some kind of coherent argument.
He only types with one hand whilst sitting on the other to create that 'someone else is pulling my sock' feeling.

Due to Trump refusal to rehearse any part of the dance before hand, the billionaire real estate mogul and his wife appeared a bit awkward at times.

about alternative facts, before that gets out of hand as well...

imagine we have a large green apple.

a) the apple is green
b) the apple is large
c) the apple is small

can you tell the difference between an alternative fact and a false fact?
a) the apple is green - objective
b) the apple is large - subjective
c) the apple is small - subjective

alternative fact - subjective / interpretative
false fact - a lie

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Phase 1: So Mr Trump choose his son-in-law Jared Kushner as senior advisor to the White House. Is that nepotism? No says the DoJ but it is a very "unusual" practice and open door for conflicts of interest.

Phase 2: Mr Trump declared that his son-in-law will "broker middle-east peace deal". An appointment Trump has previously floated due to the fact that Kushner "knows the region, knows the people, knows the players," Trump described. Yes like all previous diplomats had no clue about the region.

Phase 3: Israel announced today 2500 more settlement homes in the illegaly occupied territories. The statement said 100 of the homes would be built in Beit El, a settlement that according to Israeli media has received funding from the family of Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Is he confusing "brokering a peace deal" and "brokering a real-estate investment"?

I can see peace coming upon us in that region........very soon.

I disagree with this part. A fact is a fact is a fact. It's not good or bad or alternative or whatever, it just is.

While there may be additional facts (I guess there alway are) there's no such thing as "alternative fact". The only things alternative are opinions, interpretations, and other subjective statements. Or lies going by another name.

Do you mean peace sincerely or are you saying it in a jokey 'Islam means peace' kind of way?

when is green green and not yellow or blue? arbitrary? subjective?

if apple size is above mean of a normal (or T) distribution you could objectively state that it is large. you can squabble about the label in the same sense you can make green more or less green.

leaving semantics wise-assery aside. alternative facts are simply other facts about the same thing. so if we talk about inauguration audience we can a) point to the crowd in dc and state the audience was small or b) we can look at viewership on tv and internet and state that the audience was large. both true, both alternative facts for audience size.

or look up martons post in the other thread about about global warming. 3 institutes gave different avg temp for 2016. alternative facts are an everyday thing, just not being labelled as such by kellyanne and therefore get dragged into "omg nazi evil retard" dimensions by the media.

manwithnoshiftkeys was pretty funny tho!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Never heard that alternative fact; there's however something called a fabricated fact.
Apple, an apple, the apple and appleness these could well become polemical when politicized.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Another sign of things to come.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38729364

Where do men get off with telling women what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. If Trump and co don't like abortions perhaps they should bring in a law that requires all men to wear one of these

https://chastitybeltformen.com/

And the women in their lives should control the keys - because that's exactly what men are doing with these outdated laws.

Lets look at that, the temperature differences between 2 of the readings was 0.02 deg with and the others could still line up given the margin of error. But none of them contradict current climate science. So much so, that I wondered why Marton posted it, like his previous post on the subject, it offered no new information, but it obviously is of some significance to him.

Now I get why you do that, by playing little word games and pointing marginal errors, you can say, what's 0.02 difference, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05 , 10, 20, 100, 1000000 and so on, but it really isnt at all comparable.

Edit: So lets carry on with you, you now throw TV viewership is as a possible alternate fact, try looking it up....
