Word on the street is there is heat on james comey.
It would be a shame if he were actually held accountable.....

Yeah, a $3,000 shame... rotflmao!

I'm surprised no one else took Auggie up on his offer.

He is trying to get me to up the amount, so it may not be too late to get in on the action...

Of course, I expect you to deny, deflect, disparage and pretend these aren't accomplishments, no worries, it is what TDS sufferers do.


Your point was relative to other Presidents. There's no comparison data in the kiss up article you linked vis a vis other Presidents.

This is what the TDS does to people, they post stuff and don't even bother reading it first.

Kiss up article? Now simply stating facts is kissing up? Oh, right, almost forgot who I was talking to...

I showed you facts/evidence of his accomplishments. Now its up to you to counter with whoever you think comes even close.

Agreed... and you can also say that it causes them to read things and completely ignore facts that they disagree with, and read into it something that is not even there.

You were supposed to be showing how this very stable genius with a big brain is the greatest President, the greatest, of all time.


Oh, right, almost forgot who I was talking to...


You probably did, let me remind you, I'm the guy who likes facts.

No, it's YOUR job since you're the one who made the claim.

The fact is that there was nothing comparing Trump to any other President in that article. It was a fluff piece by a sympathetic publication.

No, I said he has accomplished more in his first 3 years than any other Prez. And he has. I pointed you to a full list of them. You can't counter, so you just deflect... par for the course.


"Oh, right, almost forgot who I was talking to..."

You probably did, let me remind you, I'm the guy who likes facts.

You mean, you're the guy who likes to pick and choose what facts he recognizes, and ignores the rest? Yeah, no reminder necessary...


"I showed you facts/evidence of his accomplishments. Now its up to you to counter with whoever you think comes even close."

No, it's YOUR job since you're the one who made the claim.

I made the claim. I backed it up with facts demonstrating his accomplishments.

It should be easy for you to counter with a list of accomplishments of some other Prez that look even remotely as impressive.

Since you cannot, all you can do is continue to deflect. No worries, mate. Have fun flying the friendly skies - maybe your daddy is a pilot and you get a lot of REE passes...

When you make that claim you need to back it up with comparable data. You haven't.

You post little in the way of facts and nearly all in the way of opinion, including that article that mentions the accomplishments of zero other Presidents vis a vis Trump. None.


I made the claim. I backed it up with facts demonstrating his accomplishments.


And nothing showing how they compare to anyone else.

Not my job, that's yours since you made the claim.

The new edge browser being pushed out by Microsoft is based on Chrome. In fact it's just like the Chrome browser. So watch out!

Says who? You just made that up pulling it out of your backside.

I provided a list (probably not even complete) of his major accomplishments.

Now all you have to do is pick a Prez you think could compete, find a list of his accomplishments, and counter.

You have not done that.

Why is that?


You post little in the way of facts and nearly all in the way of opinion,

The list of Trumps accomplishments was a list of facts.

You're asking for the impossible. It isn't a function of numbers. It is a function of impact.

Again - point to one - just one - Prez who had anywhere near such a list of accomplishments.


Not my job, that's yours since you made the claim.

The ball is in your court. Feel free to drop it - oh, right, thats what you've been doing this entire sub-thread.

You:

he has already done far more in his first 3 years than any President before him


So to back up your claim you listed nothing by any other President. Just some maturbatory article that feeds your confirmation bias.


You're asking for the impossible. It isn't a function of numbers. It is a function of impact.


So what you're saying is it's all subjective and solely someone's opinion. Gotcha.

You would be hilarious, if you weren't so monotonously tiring.

I asked, 'Who says that if I make a claim like that that I then have to provide 'comparable data'?

Hint: I don't. In fact, it would be near impossible, without listing the accomplishments of all preceding Prez's, and categorizing them to make some kind of intelligent comparison. How long do you think that would take? Days? Weeks?

That is absurd - when all you have to do is spend a few minutes to find rebuttal evidence.

You haven't, because you can't, so you continue to deflect.

Grow up. Grow a pair. Admit you're wrong and move on.


So to back up your claim you listed nothing by any other President.

No need, since the ones listed were so overwhelming.


Just some maturbatory article that feeds your confirmation bias.

That is what you call a simple listing of facts.

Your TDS will be the death of you. Maye it be swift and painless.


"You're asking for the impossible. It isn't a function of numbers. It is a function of impact."

So what you're saying is it's all subjective and solely someone's opinion. Gotcha.

Subjective? No. It is simply a matter of gauging the impact. But of course it takes an honest, intellectual capacity for considering all of the evidence without looking at it through TDS colored glasses. You are apparently incapable of doing that.

I am sorry for you. No worries though, I'll really enjoy spending your $3,000 payout when it comes time. Until then, deflection shields at 100%, captain!

Translation: I am lazy.

Comapred to what? The other Presidents accomplishments you're too lazy to source for comparison purposes?


That is what you call a simple listing of facts.


With no context for your argument.


Subjective? No. It is simply a matter of gauging the impact.


Which you haven't done either. Intellectual laziness at it's worst.
