Things you want to say but can't

Really glad you are grateful for the things in your life but maybe you should internalise some of this or start a blog instead of posting it all over FB. Apparently we are on day 37 of these long, rambling essays now so clearly you weren't just doing it for a month. 

Things you want to say but can't

I admit I have been avoiding the issue for a while but I decided today that I ought to let you know that while we may be on the same page in many respects the Christian one is not one of them.

The comment about "truth denial" was fine when applied to Galileo but, as far as I am concerned, not to Jesus.

So now you know, I'm a Humanist. I also think it will take more than "loving each other" and hugging Trump supoprters to defeat extremism.

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Bottom line is - no one can know the entire truth about anything unless they were there in person, when it happened.

That's as basic as it gets.

Relying heavily on information which is at best, second hand, third hand, fourth hand, super corrupted Chinese Whispers hand, is risky.

Too much potential for errors.

 

 

 It is perfectly possible to find accurate stats, facts and unbiased opinions if you look in the right places. 

But, like I said before, only if you are bothered. 

By the way I read an interview the other day with an American guy that used to run a fake news website. He said that conservatives swallowed all the crap he fed them while  never got anywhere with liberals who would debunk the story by about the third post every time. I'm guessing this is because they were better informed.

ignorance: not a virtue.

But anyway, blather on. I am off to the place I go to talk people who actually give a shit.

I'm becoming a bit concerned about how my largely rhetorical posts might be upsetting Screamapillar.

I'm not making that up.

 

 

 

You might not be making it up. But you are kidding yourself.

So you, as an admin, couldn't decide whether to approve the post or delete it and deliberately "left it to someone else" only to complain that it HAD been posted. well fuck you lady, take responsibility or zip it.

Or just do what I did and change the emphasis of the thread with your own post.

Well maybe it's because you can't fact check Joe Soap's personal opinion in the same way the way you can stats and other stuff in the public domain.

But only if you can be bothered to, of course...

No idea what Harold Wilson did. 

Cameron said what he said thinking he would win and from also changed his mind after the event saying "why should I deal with this shit? " Blatant lies ahead of the event can be uncovered simply by Googling. it isn't stupid, it's lazy.

Stupid is preferring or disregarding the lie - and plenty of people seem to be doing that.

But then a fair few are telling lies to other people, possibly even to themselves, about the reasons they voted to leave anyway  so maybe it isn't all that surprising. 

But anyway, you, apparently didn't much care one way or the other and voted to leave on a whim so l am  surprised you are still posting here to be honest with you.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/23/eu-referendum-legally-binding-brexit-lisbon-cameron-sovereign-parliament

Note the date of the article. 

Cameron basically he said he would respect the vote and invoke A50 immediately. Not actually the same as the referendum being legally binding. And in the event he didn't do what he said he would do.

So pretty much what Cheerful Dave says. 

Lesson: take what politicians say with a pinch of salt and do your own research.

I think the fact that it was advisory was very clear to anyone who was paying attention.
