  •  There's no evidence that he hasn't! (0+ / 0-)

    And yet you still make a definitive claim that he hasn't!

    If you're going to make a claim the burden is on you to prove it!  But you can't prove it. So instead you deflect.

    That's ridiculous.

    You're the one embarrassing yourself by making arguments based on no evidence. Your argument is based on nothing but some infantile resentment that as far as you're concerned he went after OWS and not tea party extremists.

    It's like some bullshit proxy for fucking blog drama. That's what's going on here and it's pathetic.

      evidence of absence, in politics. But do keep us informed about Obama's secret program to rid us of RW violence.

        You're claiming that because you haven't seen evidence of something, it has not happened. The climate change deniers and other morons believe the same thing.

        The evidence of federal agents showing up at this guy's ranch only to have guns pointed at them is not, according to you, enough evidence of the Federal government's targeting of people like Cliven Bundy. Probably because there wasn't some Waco-style apocolypse that you could complain was indicative of Obama's excessive use of force.

          doesn't prove that the moon isn't made of cheese?

          And I'm stunned that you'd use the Bundy incident to demonstrate Obama's FBI's going after RW terrorists. That's like saying that Bush was trying to protect Social Security by dismantling it.

            Attempting to collect a debt from a racist deadbeat is like dismantling Social Security? So you're saying that Obama is essentially attacking the middle class by dispatching Federal agents to collect a debt from lawless individuals?

            Now I'm amused.

            What other indefensible claim are you going to make in order to blame Obama?

            I know, I know. I get it. Obama is the reason you're making these completely idiotic statements. It's his fault.

            Thanks Obama!

            This shit show is funny!

              •  I'm just following your BASIC LOGIC. (0+ / 0-)

                You claimed that Obama has done nothing to combat domestic terrorism, provided no evidence to substantiate this claim, and now you're trying to formulate a tortured analogy that the President's attempts to combat RW terrorism are like Bush's to dismantle Social Security in the name of "saving it."

                Those hayseed freaks on Bundy's ranch would probably agree with you.

        It's like this... Having read this thread to it's unfortunate end...

        Here's the logic for the statement *absence of evidence = evidence or absence*

        All oranges grow on trees, therefore all trees are orange trees.

        That's incorrect and faulty logic.

        It's not that I'm agreeing or disagreeing with your statements regarding what Obama may or may not have done concerning RWNJ terrorist groups, because I simply don't know what he's done... It's that your absolutism is tripping you up and impeding your argument.
