The Partisan Fallacy and Hobby Lobby

Rejecting partisan arguments because they are partisan is… partisan. According to Nizkor.org, the genetic fallacy “is a line of ‘reasoning’ in which a perceived defect in the origin of a claim or thing is taken to be evidence that discredits the claim or thing itself.” The process of argumentation—building up, and tearing down arguments—is an easy one. Well, it should be, if one adheres to logical constructs, and avoids fallacies. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, and sometimes Read more […]

Viability: Disgusting & Incoherent Argument For Abortion

The standard of “viability” would allow us to kill children after they were born. “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius It’s easy to tell when someone is losing an argument: they will begin to diverge from the topic at hand, and lead you down various other paths. You’ll chase their white rabbits for as long as they need you to in order for them to escape actual topical debate. That is exactly what the left does on a routine basis. They have no foundation Read more […]

Why We Should Never Give Up Fighting

No matter what: never give up! “When people start hurling insults at you, you know their minds are closed and there’s no point in debating. You disengage yourself as quickly as possible from the situation.” – Judith Martin “There are all kinds of stupid people that annoy me but what annoys me most is a lazy argument.” – Christopher Hitchens I have lived a life of debating. I took leave of it for a time, because it became upsetting just how intellectually dishonest people could be. I was Read more […]

Why Liberals Attack with Emotion, Forget Logic

“The degree of one’s emotions varies inversely with one’s knowledge of the facts.” – Bertrand Russell Part of what convinces me of my convictions is the rationality associated with them. When one can set out the facts, and, outside the spectrum of emotions, come to a conclusion, that is where one finds the truth. There are certainly times when the influence of our heart can be relevant, but when the emotional overtakes the logical, we often lose sight of the truth. Worse than one who loses sight Read more […]

Airports, Government Buildings & Democratic National Conventions are Racist According to Holder’s Logic

US Attorney General Eric Holder has fought every attempt by Republicans to require a photo ID to vote.  He claims that it’s racist and discriminates against blacks and Hispanics.  Somehow in his warped logic, he doesn’t believe that poor minorities are capable of getting photo IDs so they can vote. I received an email from former US Rep. Allen West that showed just how flawed Holder’s logic is.  Michele Hickford wrote that she and West flew to a speaking event in Fresno, California.  Read more […]

“Gun-Free” Zones Contribute To Dozens Of Deaths

“This battle for ‘common-sense’ gun control laws pits emotion and passion against logic and reason. All too often in such a contest, logic loses.” – Larry Elder Political philosophies are only as strong as the logic upon which they are built. That may seem obvious to anyone reading this, but all too often, the meat of a political ideology is set upon the bones of emotion, and passion, thus compromising its integrity. If logic and reason are the bones, empathy and human understanding are the muscles. Read more […]

Pro-Abort Logic: “I Used Birth Control; It’s Not My Fault I Got Pregnant”

I received the following message from an anonymous woman: I am in a situation where I have 3 children and after a second failed IUD I am in a situation to where a fourth child will diminish my ability to provide the quality of life that I want for me and my children. It also is threatening my mental state. So do I do what my mind and body is telling me to, which is abort, or keep it because people like you tell me I’m a monster if I abort, put myself at a significantly greater risk of suicide and Read more […]

How The Democrats Use Illegal Immigrant Children To Manipulate Us & Advance Their Agenda

“Appeal to emotion or argumentum ad passiones is a logical fallacy which uses the manipulation of the recipient’s emotions, rather than valid logic, to win an argument…Instead of facts, persuasive language is used to develop the foundation of an appeal to emotion-based argument. Thus, the validity of the premises that establish such an argument does not prove to be verifiable.” – Wikipedia I’m tired of the manipulation. Every aspect of the Democrat platform is based in emotional, intellectual, Read more […]

Obama Pays “Non-Partisan” Group To Promote Obamacare

Non-partisan: the Democrat’s favorite word. Every time I’ve ever gotten into an argument with a Democrat—be it about social issues or economic—they have brought up statistics which they claim to have gotten from a “non-partisan” organization. They immediately cast aside any evidence I bring to the table, claiming that it’s biased or partisan, no matter where it came from. But anything a Democrat uses is pure and free from the taint of partisanship. Aside from the fact that bias doesn’t determine Read more […]

It’s The Law Of The Land

“It Passed The House Of Representatives. It Passed The Senate. The Supreme Court Ruled It Constitutional…It’s The Law Of The Land. It’s Here To Stay.” – Barack Obama “ObamaCare Is The Law Of The Land, It Has Been For Four Years…Why Don’t They Get A Life And Figure Out Something Else They’d Like To Mess With?” – Harry Reid The above quotes are just two of possibly dozens in which Obamacare is referred to as “the law of the land.” The Left loves to latch on to what are generally called Read more […]

What’s So Wrong With Interspecies Marriage?

With homosexual “marriage” now so widely accepted, thanks to pop culture’s indoctrination of our pop-culture-obsessed society, deviancy has been defined downward. Standards have been lowered. Traditional morals have been scoffed at and redefined. In the homosexual community’s attempts to corrupt society, they’ve inadvertently provided the logical argument for those who wish to have their bestiality habits accepted and embraced. “Two people who love each other ought to be able to get married” Read more […]

Democrat Rep Uses Emotion To Sell Amnesty

Argumentum ad passiones is a logically fallacious style of argumentation. Argumentum ad passiones–aka argument of emotional appeal–uses human emotion as its base or root. Where a logical argument relies on facts and figures, an emotional appeal relies on gut feelings. For example: if a city wants to increase taxes, but doesn’t have the votes to do so, they will often employ the “children, police and firemen” strategy. This strategy uses the emotional appeal of children and heroes to pull on Read more […]
