  •  What would constitute (0+ / 0-)

    evidence that it did not happen? How can that negative be proven?

    But had it happened, it is very probable that video/audio evidence would exist. No audio/video has been offered so we are left with only a claim.

      indeed spit on, and it was captured on video, because I saw it on the evening news.

      •  of course (0+ / 0-)

        i asked if anyone else was spit on cause he's the only one i recall. Nancy claimed it was members (plural).

        I think she's wrong there.

          In another one of your posts:

          Nancy has her facts wrong.

          It would seem that you are making the point that she has her "fact" wrong, but just like she does, you use the plural to refer to a singular event.

          This kind of nitpicking is just obviously a thinly veiled attempt at trying to make Democratic leaders look bad by parsing words, yet you use the same colloquialism to make your point.

          How many times do I have to say it:


    •  This statement is bogus on so many levels, troll. (2+ / 0-)

      Evidence has been produced, with a link no less, so now it is up to you to counter the claim.

      You claim that:

      it is very probable that video/audio evidence would exist.

      This is an appeal to probability, a logical fallacy, kind of like you attempted to apply but failed when you were claiming that the previous poster was trying to make you "prove a negative."

      Yes, we are left with a claim, backed up by several witnesses, and a linked article.  The burden of proof is now on you.  Nice try at picking nits, troll.
