Talking about liars, I dont find Trump lied at all
Yup, we're done here.  You do know what documentation is, don't you?  You know, that which demonstrates he's not just a liar, he's a fucking filthy liar?

No, you don't.  That was rhetorical.  It does go a long way to explaining why you believe the dumb stuff you believe, though.  You're completely disconnected from reality.

Well this guy invented water, I supposed He could walk on it too.
Oh, okay.  That makes sense.

Well, I'm convinced.  From now on, I'm going to spread the truth of Christianity to everyone who hasn't heard it, which is pretty much just a single uncontacted tribe in the Pacific.  Let's go!

*charters a seaplane from a guy with an eyepatch and a propensity to say antiquated words like "loosey-goosey" and "ruse"*
*lands at the island of Pikape, meets with Shaman-san, a squat man with a bowl haircut and lightning bolt tattoos on his cheeks*
Me:  "So my friend told me about a guy who walks on water..."
Shaman:  *interjects*  "Physically impossible!  Surface tension strong, but not that strong."
Me:  "No, it makes sense because he invented water because uh..."
Shaman:  "Your friend is like soft-headed baby who fall down cliff because he think he fly like myna bird.  Balooney!"
Me:  "Baloney?"
Shaman:  "Yes.  Cosmos-lord Carl Sage-Man bequeathed to us his balooney detection kit.  We no know exactly what balooney is, but this smells balooney!"
Me:  "Wait a sec, how are we talking to each other?  You know English?"
Shaman:  "We learn english from foreign epic about Lord Ash the Ageless, monster-master and Lord of Duels.  By day, he roams the world capturing monster.  By night, he calls upon his host to fight each other for glory and honor.  He cares not from whom the blood flows, only that it flows.  Moon red from him.  One day he will catch all monster then unmake/remake the world."
Me:  "Oookay, well, I'll be leaving now."
Shaman:  "Say traditional goodbye."
Me:  *crosses arms* "I don't want to"
Shaman:  *menacingly*  "Say and we not eat alive you maybe."
Me:  "Team Rocket is blasting off again!" *runs for dear life into prop plane while spears whiz by*
*spear-damaged plane lifts off and shrinks until it's only a speck on the horizon, a speck that makes an audible chime as it disappears*

Come on, guys!  You don't know what this guy (or girl) really thinks.  It is here to pull your chain.  If we were Trump supporters, Hillary would be he/she/it best pal.  He cobbled his ideas about the bible and religion from many sources and probably none of its.  He will simply say what pulls your chain.  Do I get a strong whiff of troll?  You betja.  She's like the little boy who likes to stir up the hornets nest, but he knows he won't really get stung.  He just wants to get everybody riled up.

Mousetrap's claim that a guy can walk on water (because he invented water) stopped me in my tracks.  What do you say to that kind of doubling down defense?  Defend an absurd claim by adding an equally absurd claim!

You are hit smack in the head with the realization that you are now trying to talk intelligently to a person with some kind of handicap.  Call it Compulsive Obtusity Disorder.  He has limited your options by either being or acting like he has no concept of what you are telling him, and he spews out something to confuse the issue even more.

So what do you do in a case like that?  Well you could write a comedy sketch about what is happening.  Good humor often intersects reality, and when the reality of a situation is already laughably absurd, you've got a good place to start.  Of course the discussion is finished.  Actually, it was finished long ago, but at least something entertaining happened.

Yeah, I thought that was so crazy that even a cargo cult would find it to be preposterous.

The only word in here that I object to is "thinks".  ;)

Mousie's been skirting close to my troll/not-troll line for a couple days now; today the little squeaker finally tipped over into it.  I have much better folks to interact with here than that waste of screen space.

He doesn't want to.

Does anyone here still think this guy is from Johannesburg South Africa?  Seems too much interested in American politics.

I watch CNN and Fox in an attempt to see who the hypocrites are, and boy, the liberal media are really uneducated.
Just look at old Whoopi Goldburg when she showed her true colors.
I haven't thought about Whoopi in literally years. Since ST:TNG ended, in fact.

Talking about liars, I dont find Trump lied at all, but dammit, when will you guys arrest Strzok, and Hillary?
When will you? Seeing that your lot are in charge of the FBI and stuff. This tells me one of two things:

(a) Your guys are in cahoots with them...
—or—
(b) Hillary and Strzok didn't do anything.

They think it is fine to harass and victimize Republicans.
Well, what goes around comes around. And I'm sure you won't victimize Democrats now that you're in power. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Well, that is the only political movement in the US today.  Competitive victimhood.  So actually ... victimizing Democrats is good for them ... same as victimizing Republicans (I have seen both in my 60+ years).  Too bad Hell is full.

Indeed it would.  But I was a experienced in the woods and never used the wrong leaves.  Did leave a tee shirt behind once though.
