I'm sorry. The answer you were looking for was HUD.

So no points to Marton and we pass the spin over to...

I honestly don't know much about this character, and shocked by the quote so I looked it up.


This is what I found:
“A person’s religious beliefs are the things that make them who they are, gives them a direction in their life, But I do not believe that religious beliefs should dictate one’s public policies and stances. I find, a very good measure of correlation between my religious beliefs and my scientific beliefs — people say, how can you be a scientist, how can you be a surgeon if you don’t believe in certain things? Maybe those things aren’t scientific. Maybe it’s just propaganda.”


which I think is totally acceptable as a pediatric neurosurgeon.


I feel the memeish picture posted is bending his message entirely.

haha took you 4 days to think up that "comeback"?

but thanks for reminding everybody again that you can barely read and/or don't know the difference between shrill and shill.

you based your entire shitpost on that. so embarrassing. some people just don't know when to slink away into the shadows.
Hard as it may be to believe, some of us have lives to lead away from here and don't spend 24/7 posting nonsense. A novel concept to some it seems.

Let me refresh you on Phos' most recent usage of "shRill", directed at me (again!):

I tend think this is another one of those shrill EF exaggerations and over-reactions. No need for a rush to judgment. Next election is 4 years away.
No idea where you are getting "shill" from, I guess you are unable to see your Rs from your elbow.

sure, thats what i would say as well if i had to think 4 days on some weak comeback.

thats right he used shrill which is not a buzzword at all. shill on the other hand is somewhat of a buzzword.

but now it turns out even i overestimated you and it seems you do not even know the word shill. thought you merely confused the two words but you actually think shrill is buzzword enough to warrant that shitpost.

Just to end this dull sideshow once and for all, so we can all move on with our lives...

Phos seems to be focusing on buzzwords instead of facts again. Misusing shrill again also...
Notice the full stop after the first sentence. For the hard of understanding, this sentence refers to Phos using words like "Snowflake" and "SJW".

See the sentence AFTER the full stop (and the use of also). You (MWNN) handily described what shrill meant yourself, which clearly hasn't applied to any posts, therefore I believe Phos to be misusing it.

I genuinely have no idea where "shill" entered this sorry debate, I can only assume you misread something earlier.

Pretty basic stuff, happy we've cleared it up. Apology accepted, let's get back to the real debate.

you pointed out shrill in the context of buzzwords so one is lead to believe you think shrill is a buzzword. alas, it is almost identical to the actual buzzword shill making it look like you confused the two.

calling out the (mis)use of some random flavour word like shrill makes very little sense out of the blue, even with full stops. like i said: shitpost.

I'm sure she can advise Ben Carson, who is to be put in charge of housing and urban development, on building pyramids to store grain in.

You know the phrase, "If you're in a hole, stop digging"?

Thank you for at least acknowledging that you now believe I know the difference between "shill" and "shrill" though, there's hope for you yet.

Enough. Please switch to PMs if you want to continue swapping dick pics.

MWNN, the past tense form (including participle) of "lead" is "led". You're welcome.

Every US President as far back as I can remember has been named Time Person of the Year. This is hardly a surprise.

He's not president yet...

Not really anyone else who could win it this year though, hard to say anyone has captured the cultural Zeitgeist quite like The Donald.
