Random Thoughts: Rights and Arguing

Health care is not a right. A right is not the government making an empty guarantee of a good or service.
Can say “I want the government to do everything it can to make sure everyone has health care” but calling it a right tortures the language.
Rights are very important – at least many people think so – so let’s not go around trying to redefine what they are.

If you don’t side with the nazis in fighting the nazis, then you’re no better than nazis.

Everything is “Hillary versus Trump” now.

Despite what happened to Hillary, I still have faith that one day the mediocre spouse of a former president can be elected president.

All I want is for everyone to get along. And I’ve identified which group of people keep that from happening. They must be eliminated.

I care less about politicians being against science than I care about them being against economics.

I’ll be more sympathetic to DREAMers if you stop calling them DREAMers. That term just makes me want to slap them.

You’d think President Trump would cause the left to be cautious about putting govt in charge of more things, but no, still full speed ahead.

As much as I love having more of my income spent by idiot sociopaths who care only about reelection, not fully on board with single payer.

If the government ever decided food was a “right,” I’d be afraid of starving.

My kids want ice cream for breakfast and single-payer and I just know I’m going to end up looking like the villain here.

Trump’s base is flabbergasted. How were they supposed to know they thing everyone said would happen would happen?

To all those who feel betrayed by Trump, I have this to say: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Things Trump critics were wrong on:
1. Electability in general
2. Appointing crony as 1st SCOTUS pick
But everything else was spot on.

Everything Democrats want
“Boo!”
Everything Democrats want but with a big gold “TRUMP” stamped on it
“Yay!”

Calling Ben Shapiro a “white supremacist” is why no one listens when Trump is called one.
If you actually care about racism, scream at the idiots devaluing all the terms used to label racists.

My 1yo is ready for the internet. She argued with my 6yo that a unicorn was a pony, going so far as to claim the horn was a “pony hat.”
Let that be a lesson to you. Never let lack of knowledge get in the way of arguing; all you need is tenacity.
Most of my 1yo arguing was simply saying, “No! Pony!” louder and louder, but is that is basically half of it.
And man was it nice to see my 6yo experiencing what it’s like when someone with far less knowledge insists they know better.
And I like how my 1yo was “I just learned what a pony is, so now I’m an expert on animal identification.” Remind you of anyone? Or everyone?
Liked seeing my older daughter think she had the killer argument (“See. This is a horn. Unicorn.”) just to have no effect (“No! Pony hat.”).
The important thing is that in the end we all learned something. Except for the one who was wrong.

Ooh! The iPhone 8 is available for preorder! Who wants to have the latest, greatest iPhone for one month?

Terms that used to mean something specific and now just mean someone I don’t like:
Fascist
Racist
Nazi
White Supremacist
The problem is, those used to describe some bad things which we don’t have other terms for. To overuse those terms normalizes evil.

Am I supposed to be offended by the boobs thing? And why? Politeness? Puritanism? Sexism? Pretending to be baffled by heterosexuality?
Can someone edit the video so the host is an old rich lady who clutches her pearls and says, “Well I never!”?

Seriously, though, guys, don’t like boobs. It’s wrong.

Be a gentleman and pretend not to like boobs. If a lady ever shows them to you, say, “Ugh. Not for me.”

Only way to make this boobs thing more fun/ridiculous would have been for Baldwin to say, “I can call them that. You can’t use that word.”

A lot of people on the left are confused about the inexplicable love of free speech, due process, and boobs.

When I was a kid, my dad would hook the fish and let me reel it in. My equivalent is letting my soon do the last hit in a boss battle.

Trump does something moronic. His partisan opponents completely overreact. You can practically set your watches to it.

Did anyone win an Emmy this year?

Having Sean Spicer on the Emmys was disrespectful to the families of the millions he murdered.

Reminder: If Hollywood wants to defeat Trump, they need to stop focusing on how awful he is and instead focus on how awful they are.

By posting that golf ball video, Trump is now on par with some of history’s worst leaders: Hitler, Stalin, and Moe from The 3 Stooges

Wouldn’t part of the reason Emmy viewership is down is that the appeal of the top nominated shows is much more selective?
There’s always been critic favorite movies with low viewership, but critic favorite tv shows with low viewership more recent thing.
Which isn’t to say tv has gotten bad — it’s gotten better — but again, appeal for top shows is more selective.

Just finished 1st season of Fargo. That finale was so intense partly because I knew none of the character needed to survive for next season.
Uncomfortably intense, actually. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I knew ahead of time whether my favorite characters survived.

Someone has claimed a White House Press Secretary lied. Could this be true?

Constant reminder: There exists no other solution to housing costs than building more houses.

All politicians should be wiretapped. I don’t trust any of them.

I’m sure the left’s embrace of political violence in the era of Trump is a far-sighted move that will lead to a very good place.
No possible negative repercussions. Let’s spend no more than 1.7 seconds thinking about this.
1.8 seconds later
“But what if…”
