Oh, so much on this guy. But here is the latest. And yeh, for any fact checkers out there, yes, Biden said this the other day. :(

I believe that the Democrats are trying to find a way to get rid of him. They're stuck: He's the only one with a serious chance, and they're stuck defending him. Yet, needing to defend him is exactly what they don't want to do. They know it's a weakness against Trump, whose greatest skill is his ability to exploit the weaknesses of his political opponents.

Bernie will hopefully step out before campaigning kills him. Harris has probably the best skill set and is the epitome of Democrat identity politics, but her campaign is an absolute disaster. I hope Klobuchar not only fails to get the nomination, but loses her Senate seat. Male Republicans like Gabbard much more than Democrats do. That leaves Buttigieg, who seems like a good candidate if he could run against anyone other than Trump. Nobody else counts.

If I were a gambler, I'd bet on Biden finding some excuse to drop out after the Iowa Caucuses.

Rest assured, Bernie doesn't REALLY want to be president anyhow. He is using it for personal gain. He knows he has zero shot, but wtf, he made 3 or 4 million because of his last campain. It's a lot easier going around on your own pace, and schedule, doing $50,000 1 hour speeches and signing your name to a book you didn't write.

Aka fake news switched to different fake news. Honestly I’ve got drunk woke up in the morning looked in the mirror and said boy did I look stupid last night. They must have no mirrors and obviously don’t need to be drunk to fill the bill

Political association aside, this is a classic example of the logical fallacy known as false equivalency. The issue is not whether or not Biden should be investigated, but rather did the President knowingly leveraged quid pro quo to gain information to help his re-election campaign vs national security.

Incorrect. Correlation DOES imply causation, when the former was argued that it would promote the latter, before law was enacted.

No, it doesn't work that way. That reasoning is inherently fallacious. If you have data to prove that gun free zones have directly caused an increase mass shootings, then present that, don't just post a meme that incorrectly analyzes/oversimplifies the situation. Essentially what I'm saying is I have no inherent problem with the meme's conclusion, it's the lack of evidence presented and fallacious over-simplification leading to that conclusion.



For example, the left could spin a similarly misleading narrative by equating the number of mass shootings in this country to high number of legal weapons here.


Same fallacy that takes two true statements and tries to imply one causes the other. The truth of it is very likely far more complex.
