  1. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=armchair philosopher "A typical armchair philosopher is somebody who is a complete know-it-all, usually a douchebag or self-declared intellectual. They always feel the need to seem intellectually superior to others [ ... ]" " ... intellectually inferior general[s who] attended West Point ... "
  2. You don't understand at all what I wrote there to Stephen. Maybe its best if you leave it to Stephen.
  3. What kind of person would accept a job running a Ministry of Truth for Joe Biden, as that Nina Jankowicz did? I found some answers to that question in Atlas Shrugged: Monsters with corroded souls, that's who would accept such a "job," lording over all of us. Someone who would volunteer to help with Zelensky's election, as she did, in short.
  4. Do you remember your favorite ribbing for Bill Dwyer? "Armchair Philosopher." If only you could see you now!
  5. This also strongly shows in all of your armchair military general pontificating, which would rapidly get us all killed, as Tony observed.
  6. And it shows. As Tony said, you have a lot of mis-identification to go back and fix.
  7. Such a weird coincidence that that nasty Ministry of Truth hag Nina Jankowicz worked on Zelensky's campaingn in 2019.
  8. I think you mean evasions by leaders, governments. But regarding the discussants from both sides, isn't it fascinating how we evade none of what they have to say? We look carefully and consider all of it. And none of it is new to us when they present it. We had already heard it from our nephews and nieces who got it from social media. We had already heard all of it from our neighbor who got it from CNN. We can turn on MSNBC any time and hear all of it. We engage with all of it. Whereas they evade whole swathes of information as a matter of principle and epistemological pride.
  9. Every one of Tony's interlocutors here has emphatically declared their commitment to evading whole categories of fact they don't like. The thinking of objective and informed people will always seem bizarre to those wholly committed to keeping their eyes closed to categories of fact they don't like.
  10. I still find it so damn curious that you had no interest in learning how corrupt the Biden Crime Family is. In 2016, while Vice President of the US, Biden threatened to withhold a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine unless the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his son Hunter was fired. The video is all over the internet. At a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations Q & A session he publicly explained how he had a Ukrainian prosecutor fired. He explained he held up one thousand million dollars in humanitarian aid until they fired the prosecutor who was investigating his son Hunter, (who was and is a total zero but somehow on the Board of one of the major energy companies of the world, based in Ukraine.) Biden says he made the billion dollar threat and "well, son of a bitch, they fired him!" I provided all the info for a search and in less than five minutes you could find it and it apply that evidence of the senses thing, but you can't be brought to do it. The Biden Crime Family has things to hide, things they have actively hidden for many years, in Ukraine. And now they want to drag the world into another bloody endless war there. And we have "intellectuals" in the West who can't see any benefit to grasping these connections and simply can't be bothered.
  11. No sacrifices on their part are too great when his precious serenity is attached to the matter.
  12. I don’t agree with that at all. And in this case the aggression was committed by particularly evil people, Cuomo and other Dem Govs, who are soon going to pay a heavy price for their murder, attempted coup and treason.
  13. The cold-causing viruses, that we have always had with us and will always have with us, stimulate our immune system and are an inextricable part of human life. They are not ton-and-a-half masses impacting at 100 mph. Mass home detentions, mask edicts, distancing edicts, guest count limit edicts, etc., are all blatant violations of basic rights, without any justification. —>Thedelicate can always stay home<— Therefore, those are massive, blatant violations of basic individual rights. The little bastards have not really even yet scientifically identified their so-called “novel covid-19 coronavirus.” The Great Scamdemic of 2020.
  14. All the physical aggression came from the side that intentionally ruined millions of lives with a scam.
  15. It is very rare for colds to be like bullets, but sometimes they are. The party who needs to mostly stay away from others and mask up when they go outside is they for whom colds are bullets.
  16. Did everyone watch the Georgia and Arizona state legislature sessions? That Section One of Article Two of the Constitution is a real bitch. Beijing Biden can keep putting off conceding the race but with every passing day it just causes further damage to his party and the republic.
  17. I'm with Stephen. Since Alice was born in very early 1905 we know she was conceived in spring of 1904. Now, she could have not been conceived — if say Zinovy had inhaled any more of what he was heating and compounding at the shop the day before then his sperm count would have been lowered and a different cell would have won the race to the egg. Or if maybe Anna had exercised any extra the two weeks prior then a different egg would have travelled to the uterus. Alice would not exist if those or any other choices incompatible with her actualization had occurred. But her actualization did occur. So we know that at 12:01am the day of her conception everything required for the existence of Alice, existed. Therefore the full-blown potential for Alice existed. The non-existence of the potential for Alice at that moment of the universe is incompatible with her conception later that day. Therefore her potential to exist fully existed, it was and will always be one of the existents of existence, even if she had never actualized.
  18. I am confident you have dispensed with much evidence in like manner.
  19. Before any punishments may rightfully ensue, court convictions are required. But court findings are not the cognitive end-all for you, right? You can know a thing is so before a court tells you? Certainly the people who can read our texts and emails and turn the microphones on our phones on at will can know things before a court tells them, and I was talking about those people. Biden has openly admitted much. At a Council on Foreign Relations meeting he publicly explained how he had a Ukrainian prosecutor fired. He explained he held up one thousand million dollars in aid $ until they fired the prosecutor who was investigating Hunter. He says he made the billion dollar threat and "well, son of a bitch, they fired him!" Have you seen this video?
  20. Chin up, Tony. President Trump will be sworn into his second term in two months. That is the only possible outcome, for we won a long time ago and have the legislatures and Supreme Court. Try to relax and enjoy this *literal* show. None of this is truly "live action" but only post-triumph exposure of the bad guys for the sake of the many people who still don't get it. They were closely monitored and allowed to cheat massively. You are about to witness the dead in its tracks takedown you alluded to. Enjoy.
  21. The President, members of the military, the Supreme Court, State Legislatures and others, are not going to sit and watch a proven traitor assume office. Yesterday the President granted a full pardon to Michael Flynn -- a man who knows where all the bodies are buried and who is now safe and angry and free to sing like a bird -- said today: "we will never again allow the rightful power of the citizens of this country to be uprooted, undercut, usurped, or held hostage by a coup against our nation, a duly elected President or any future president of these United States."

  22. The lack of interest in any of the information disseminated is rather notable. Instead, straight to 'it is obviously evil and Jon too if he dares think otherwise." Hardcore Objectivist epistemology right there, huh? Pathetic.
  23. The basic task of the Trump team (this includes their Q operation) is very delicate and difficult: Alert the masses of the reality of a global gang that gained control of governments, International NGOs, Fortune 500 companies, mass and social media, etc. so that they will abandon their widespread (mostly unknowing) support of it and join the fight to destroy it -- all without triggering WWIII or a second US civil war. Telling people what this gang has done and has in mind for us does not work, you have to show them. Arresting all the guilty today would fail, as way too many people would view such action as unjust harassment of mere political rivals. The People still have their heads in the sand and it would bring civil war and it would fail. I think there is a small chance the enemy will be allowed to continue proceeding with their plans. In this scenario, Trump accepts court decisions that don't go his way. He doesn't explicitly concede, but his posture changes to one of acquiescence. And the enemy continues exposing itself in real time, maybe even be lead into committing more treason, right out in the open in front of the whole world. Allowing a period of time during which the world thinks Biden/Harris will be taking power at the end of January so they may show the world what they really are is not inconsistent with anything from Q that I aware of. So, no, I would not then " step off the Q-train." Trump and Flynn and others have signaled their affiliation with Q in thousands of ways. It is quite plainly an operation of US military intelligence committed to the destruction of the global enemy. They are going to do it in a way and at a time that can succeed.
  24. Communist like the CCP regime which owns the Biden Crime Family? In which Q posts #s will I find justification for a comparison to the ideas of communism? That's a strong a specific claim, now let's see some honest intellectual work to back it up. In all the Q posts I have read the appeal is to fight those who violate rights and certainly none say to take their bribes and help them hide their crimes, as Joe did, but if you think you can make the case, show me the posts.
  25. If you continue to insist that something was going on in the back of my mind making me choose to write "if I had to choose," then I will relent: it was the thought of the likeliness of you imposing zero Q discussion on me as a condition of posting on your site.
