    He’s still more open minded than an internet Troll

    Darn right. An internet troll is just a guy with web access and still has enough fingers to type with. I always assume that the ones who spell especially poorly are the one who are typing with only nubs left after repeated accidents with sharp objects or large machinery.

    a little off-topic: every time I see the old guy, he always reminds me of someone, but I could never figure out who it was. Today, it finally came to me: the late actor, Charles Durning.

    Awesome. I am now going to keep a photo of him stuck to the edge of my drawing board. Cool!

    That was how the system worked until the Republicans noticed that if they used the same information that everyone else was using, they couldn’t get to the conclusions that they wanted to reach, at least not using any recognizable form of logic. So they invented “think tanks”- organizations with honorable integrity filled sounding names like “Americans for Freedom” or “Heritage Foundation”. These organizations would then produce data that could be used to win any argument necessary. The fact that the data had no validity in the real world wasn’t considered to be relevant to the situation.

    So true. You should see some of those who come on the science boards to claim that scientists know nothing.

    Some of the trolls are individuals hired to stir up dissension for their employers. In that category are both government and civilian people. Their main purpose seems to be to divide, so as to weaken. Remember divide and conquer? One tactic is also to represent themselves as speaking for a side of an issue, but then they make such outrageous assertions as to offend anyone reasonable and turn them against that side. So a left wing troll, for example, might make statements that seem to be anti-abortion, but might extoll murder of all supporters of abortion. By this they make the anti-abortion types seem too radical to support or side with. So beware of all trolls. They may not be what they seem. And remember, “Don’t feed the trolls”.
    Try researching “agent provocateur”.

    And you can prove your statement? What is your source? It seems to me from my viewpoint that the democrats are the ones doing what you describe. For a recent example look at how figures about Obamacare enrollment are being manipulated by the administration. Previously, and still, figures about unemployment.
    Are you a troll?

    “two of you have just drawn different conclusions from the same data”, that is assuming that both concluders are honest and not deceiving themselves. I often see different conclusions by adding consequences over decades of time. For example, saving 5% of your income or spending it, consequence; good time now or a secure retirement. Moderation or weekend binge drinking, consequence; alcohol related health issues. A current case in point, Colorado legalizing pot. Short term, fewer dopers in jail, “freedom”, and more state tax money. My personal experience long term is none of the potheads from my youth are alive. Reaching old age while still active, alert, and in good health is no accident. I think old folks (unless you’re Keith Richards) have taken the long view of things, have not deceived themselves, and can spot the old lies with new names.

    oh, Charles, you’re such a joker. not only do we have the enjoyment of the funny pages, and I’d wager that most folks only come here for a bit of lighthearted relaxation, we also have the bonus entertainment of your incredibly loopy posts. how glad you must be to have the convenience of the internet as an outlet for what the voices in your head are telling you. in the past I imagine you had to stand on street corners and harangue nervous passers-by.
