    Yep. Every quarter I explaini the Correlation/Causation fallacy to students along with the 14 other types. This is the type that's most often confused with the Slippery Slope fallacy. Most students understand the differences between the 15 types of fallacies by week five of the semester: the midterm. These folks run the gamut in age from 16 (AP students) to my age with the majority in their mid-twenties. They get it and use that knowledge as part of their critical thinking skills until they graduate and beyond. However, the current POTUS can't manage it? That is sad and probably why he's declared bankruptcy so many times. Wishful thinking, arrogance and stubborness, do not an educated leader or his followers make.

    I didn't vote for him, but I'd certainly hope that enough vote against him that no amount of meddling in the election would make any difference. I want him to lose and lose by a landslide. Especially when he took away healthcare for transfolks. That right there pissed me off and I got all fired up, think Dixie Carter as Julia Sugarbaker in Designing Women fired-up.

    I have several trans friends. One of which is my roommate. My ex-GF is pre-op trans. (We're still friends, the only reason she's ex is because I ended up moving 2-1/2 hours away from her and we both agreed it was too far for her to drive to see me.) The thought of any of my trans friends not getting the healthcare they need pisses me off.

    And now Trump is tweeting and claiming "the best support for the LGBTQ community." He's a fucking hypocrite and he's just saying that to avoid the backlash he's been getting from his bill that takes away healthcare for the trans community.

    Not only is he a hypocrite he is a fucking liar. I myself am gay and my group runs the gamut from gay, straight, bi, trans etc. We all treat one another with respect and dignity. We could not get that from this asshole. I absolutely despise him.

    Same. I've been openly out since National Coming Out Day this past October, so 8 months now. I run a few lesbian groups on FB, one for lesbians of color and the other for lesbians in my new city, county, and surrounding area. We're inclusive of lesbians, bisexuals, pansexuals, transfolks, everyone except cis men in the main group, but in my group for folks in my area I include LGBTQ cis men. These are spinoff groups from a main group for Kansas City Lesbians, and I'm in about half of the eleventy spinoff groups.

    We all agree that Trump is doing nothing for the LGBTQ community, and his taking away healthcare for transfolks was the last straw. He's done nothing but sit on his ass and tweet out lies, or golf at Mar-a-Lago, and run this country into the ground. He keeps tweeting about Fox News and CNN being "fake news," and I commented, replying directly to him, "Just because they tell the truth about you doesn't make them fake news." I fully expect to be blocked by him and let's just say zero fucks given.

    I saw that on the news a few nights ago and thought, "How can he get away with that? Sex isn't the issue. Human is the issue, and the law states that all people are currently included. Explain to me how some people are not in the homo sapien class of human please. I'm not gonna wait because the dumbfuck doesn't know." What was the boss called in 9 to 5 again that also fits Trump to a T? Oh yeah: A sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot. Funny in a movie, but not in real life. I would buy a strap-on just so he could blow me for saying that stupid shit.

    You can. It's not against the rules here. Just attribute it to me. My forum name is absolutely female like me.

    Thanks - I was actually suggesting that buying a strap on so that he could blow me would create redundancy.

    On another note, Bolton says that Trump is, "unfit for office".
    Wonder what kind of proof he can scrape together to support that allegation?

    Meanwhile, thousands of Trump fans are camping out at the venue of his Tulsa revival, an event expected to be attended by at least 100,000 people:

    "We want to show our support," Robin Stites, who's been camped out since Monday, told The Oklahoman newspaper. "We feel like President Trump and his family have dedicated their lives to helping our country. Sacrificing a week of our lives is nothing for what Trump has done for us."

    I don't suppose it occurred to any of these guys that they could have simply gone there on the day of the event after having purchased tickets.

    Of course it would, but do you know where that mouth has been? You want that redundancy; yes you do.

    In what has to be a first for the president who prides himself on being the first or the most or the best, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany takes a moment to assure the public (contrary to what we may think) that Trump, "does read".

    I'm not really clear if she is stating that he has the ability to do so, or that he actively engages in the activity.

    And they're not missed. Not trying to be rude but calling it as it is. Supporters of the feral yam in the White House have taken "how stupid can you BE???" as a challenge. *facepalm*

    I miss a couple who were thoughtful and logical in their reasoning, even though I didn't agree with their conclusions.
    Hearing a conflicting point of view that's well presented can be illuminating.

    I'm interested now in seeing what info comes to light since the SCOTUS ruling yesterday, but I doubt we'll hear much before the election.

    Oh, plenty is being said about it. This article was updated three days ago and discusses Trump getting spanked in a way he doesn't like:

    He is still a moron. Can't wait until Nov to vote against him. I bash him a lot and my friend goes I am not a Trump Supporter I don't like the man but you have to respect him because he is our president, I said really? Where is that rule written down? I didn't know it was the law you had to respect someone just because they are the president. I am just rolling my eyes at her every time she says that.

    That's right because we have the right to criticize public figures in this country. That's what's written down.
