I had the pleasure of having a conversation via PM with a fellow CF'r a few days back and we discussed the current cry babies here who always have a problem with some content that gets posted. My suggestion was to just think of the cry baby critical thinkers as a couple of fat nerdy kids in the band trying to act tough to the varsity football team. Just some perspective about how I view the current situation. I think it's hilarious. Please continue.

Then, to make it even better, somehow I can be a bully and a crybaby at the same time.

I'm kind of surprised that such a critical thinker would start a thread with thinly veiled threats. My old daddy used to say that the real proof of the pudding is in the eating. I think that a critical thinker such as your self exalted self would consider all points , even those from the net and see how it all shakes out. I do not trust people such as kpc that wish to go all Antifa and stifle and denigrate others that simply mistrust the media and the proven liars in government that obscure the truth until people in general give up on finding truth. The truth is this. the setup in Las Vegas is conductive to speculation and speculation many times leads to fact and fact is truth. The speculation is not always the truth but many times it opens up the truth. The sheriff and the FBI have from the start asked for input but with this caveat. Do not give us unprovable information. So they limit input drastically and immediately deny any speculation , no matter how much fact is incorporated in it or how many witnessess are involved. That is a cover up.

Good grief, here we go again.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone is more than welcome to post anything they want, as long as it is within the rules. However, if someone chooses to continually post links to "fake news" or whacked out conspiracy theories, they probably better be able to support them, or at least not whine about it when someone else shows them to be false.

Cop-Judge-and Jury? Surely you jest.

I only know of one group here on the CF that is continually demanding that others that disagree with them be banned, stop posting, or leave.

From: K Cummings

"Good grief Maxine. You troll every thread Spike posts. You wouldn't follow him so closely if you didn't care what he posts. Stop lying."

Ok, let me get this straight.

Spike (and others) start a thread with a link to a "news" item, encouraging everyone who opens the thread to visit the link and post an opinion. After all, that's the reason anyone starts a thread. Soliciting other CFers opinion about a given subject.

So, another CFer visits the link, reads it, does a little research and finds it to be BS, and proceeds to post their findings.

This same scenario plays out over, and over, and over, and over again and in your mind the bad guys (or "trolls" as you like to call them) aren't the people that post the BS, but the people that expose it.

What planet do you live on exactly?

"Good grief Maxine. You troll every thread Spike posts. You wouldn't follow him so closely if you didn't care what he posts. Stop lying "

There you go with those comprehension issues again.

Did I say I "didn't care" what people post? No...I said:

"As far as I'm concerned, anyone is more than welcome to post anything they want, as long as it is within the rules. However, if someone chooses to continually post links to "fake news" or whacked out conspiracy theories, they probably better be able to support them, or at least not whine about it when someone else shows them to be false."

Please, for the sake of whatever credibility you might have left, take the time to read things, even multiple times if you have to, before you make a fool of yourself by calling someone a liar for saying something they never said.

Some of us actually do care, about the accuracy of what others post, that's why we point out when it's total crap.

"as long as it is within the rules"

This whole thread is against Bowsite rules.

Oh the irony and hypocrisy.

24-Oct-17
As far as I am concerned, anyone can post any evidence that anybody's post is BS, so long as he doesnt make it an excuse to attack the person.

Also, anybody is free to just skip anyone else's posts. The bigger the irritation to a person, the more likely they will be to do just that. Anyone who insists on commenting anyway has an ulterior motive, especially when it is such a predicatable reaction.

From: K Cummings
24-Oct-17
"KPC, your whole point to this thread is to try and censor Spike."

Nice try Tonyo, but I suggest you break out your dictionary and look up the word "satire." Oh heck, I'll do it for you.

*****

satire - the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

*****

This thread was started, and fully intended to be a humorous way of using a topical news item to highlight and bring attention to an issue that we have in our society in general, and on the CF in particular...the dissemination of fake news, conspiracy theories, and ridiculous speculation.

It is an obvious example of using the ridiculous to illustrate the absurd.

The true irony is that you singled out spike as the intended target of the satire, when in reality it was intended for anyone that it applies to. That is very telling in and of itself.

Also ironic is the fact that some of the posts on this thread point to it's validity better than I ever could. Heck, one poster even went so far as to accuse me of threatening someone, and another suggested that pointing out false theories and fake news, no matter who posts them, is against CF rules.

"Excellent tantrum Maxine, but it doesn't change anything."

As is often the case sleepy, you seem hell bent on using words that you don't know the meaning of...but the second part of your statement is actually quite accurate.

Those who can't refute the facts, resort to name calling, and lashing out at the person who posted them. I am under no illusion that pointing these tactics out will change anything. I am also well aware that in the absence of the TOTs, that's all some folks have. It's the classic "law of the instrument." I would encourage you to look it up, and while you're at it, you might want to look up "tantrum."

Blissful ignorance is indeed easy and fun. Critical thinking is work. That's why so many people choose not to engage in it.

"As our favorite CF brother, KPC says; ya got any proof of that?"

Sure. Just off the top of my head, how about the following :

It was said by one poster that Geary Danley was the Las Vegas Shooter. A simple google search would have shown this to not be the case.

It was said by another poster that the FBI agent in charge of the LV shooting was Jon Podesta's son in law. A simple google search would have shown this to not be the case.

It was stated by a poster that the room number had been edited out of the pictures of the LV shooters room. A simple google search ...

One poster said that pictures existed that showed the LV shooter attending a Sanders rally. A simple google search...

One poster insisted that ANY and EVERY infringement of a God given right is against the law. A simple google...

It was said by another poster that the LV shooter and his girlfriend were warning concert goers that they were all going to die 45 minutes before the concert. A simple google search ...

It was said by one poster that the race of the shooter in a TN church shooting was being purposely withheld because he was black. A simple google search...

It was suggested by one poster that the shooter at football party must have been black because the victims were white and the shooter's race was not immediately reported. A simple google...

It was suggested that the WSJ reporter that passed away from natural causes was killed by the "CCC." A simple google search...

Shall I keep going or should I pause so JTV and slade can post their pictures?

Awww heck, I'm feeling charitable this morning. I'll do it for them. Maybe it will free up some time for them to do a simple google...

:)

Still, KPC, no proof that people are not critically thinking . . . . just that you may be a better googler . . .

Whatever you say Tonyo. "Objective analysis" and "evaluation" being the operative words.

By virtue of the fact that these things were posted on line, from "sources" they found online, the people who posted them are more than capable of performing a little objective analysis of those sources. Like I said, it takes a little work.

Failing to do so, and offering them up as fact, is by definition a failure in critical thinking.

Again the one who thinks he is above all the rest is showing his true colors (KPC) ... Damn, this is so much fun watching this pos wiggle ... Hows it feel to be the most arrogant bastard on this site ??

"Above all the rest?

..."most arrogant bastard on this site ??"

Just for kicks, let's apply some "critical thinking" to this, shall we? I know you don't particularly like doing this, but rest easy, I'll do all the work.

KPC makes a the following factual statement:

"Critical thinking is work. That's why so many people choose not to engage in it."

To which Tonyo specifically asked me to support that statement:

"As our favorite CF brother, KPC says; ya got any proof of that? ( Hows that for critical thinking? )"

To which I respond with not one example, not two examples, but ten separate examples which supported my original statement.

Then Tonyo brushed that off those off as somehow not being proof because those people might not be capable of doing a little research, and I responded with evidence that supported my argument again.

So, I was asked specifically asked for proof to support a statement I made. I provided that proof to the person asking for it, and that somehow makes me above all the rest," suggests that I'm trying to "wiggle out of something, and that I am the most "arrogant bastard on the site?"

Again, you unwittingly provide a perfect example of my original statement.

"Blissful ignorance is indeed easy and fun. Critical thinking is work. That's why so many people choose not to engage in it."

Would you like to try again?

No, you responded with no facts, just different googling.

I spent 20 in the USMC. During all that time I always heard that there were no mind readers in the Marine Corps.

However, you, singularly, on this thread, unproven, state as fact that some people do not think critical.

KPC, you should join the Marines. Then there would be at least one mind reader in the Marine Corps.

False.

It is an irrefutable fact that the FBI agent in charge of the LV shooting is NOT Jon Podesta's son in law.

It is an irrefutable fact that the LV shooter was NOT Geary Danley.

It is an irrefutable fact that the shooters girlfriend was NOT telling people that they were all going to die 45 minutes before the concert started.

It is an irrefutable fact that the autopsy showed that the WSJ reporter died of natural causes, NOT at the hand of the "CCC."

It is an irrefutable fact that ANY and EVERY infringement of a God given right is NOT against the law.

It is an irrefutable fact that within one hour of the church shooting, the identity and nationality of the shooter was identified and reported.

It is an irrefutable fact that the football party shooter's identity and race was NOT withheld because he was black.

The statement...

"Critical thinking is work. That's why so many people choose not to engage in it."

...is factual.

I could keep going but why bother? Tell me which one of those statements is not factual and we can discuss it. Otherwise I am not wasting another minute on it.

You throw that Marine Corps stuff around like it is supposed to impress me. While your service is appreciated, the rest means nothing as it relates to this discussion. The USMC, like ALL walks of life, is rife with idiots, morons, and mindless thinkers.

Lastly, nothing I said requires being a mind reader, just a little common sense and a willingness to investigate. I trust the USMC has it's share of those also.

No, KPC, quit dodging. You said there are those on the CF that do not critical think. Per your own words on this thread, prove it, oh great mind reader.

"Don't just say it, support it." - your words.

Now support that there are people on this thread who do not critical think. So far you have not.

Kevin,

Apparently citing multiple examples of not thinking critically isn't evidence enough for some.

I've also found that part of thinking critically is recognizing the futility of arguing with those that don't. Just saying. ;-)

Good grief.

"No, KPC, quit dodging. You said there are those on the CF that do not critical think. Per your own words on this thread, prove it, oh great mind reader."

Apparently you are having some problems comprehending what you read. What I said was:

"Critical thinking is work. That's why so many people choose not to engage in it."

Show me which part of this says "those on the CF."

It's not in there. My statement was a general one.

Even so, I gave you numerous examples where just a minute amount of investigation by the posters on the CF would have shown the statements they posted to be false. It took no mind reading, just a little "objective analysis and evaluation." That, in and of itself, shows a lack of critical thinking on their part. They obviously did very little, if any "objective analysis and evaluation."

Please stop, you're embarrassing yourself.

This discussion is part of the "objective analysis and evaluation," and I have come to the same conclusion.

Margaret Thatcher once said:

"If they attack you personally, it means they have not a single political argument left."

You can substitute "political" for logical and in my opinion her statement would be equally accurate.
