Trumpian Thoughts

Trumps say many things out loud that I too have also thought. The thoughts that float into my awareness, are considered for a brief moment, and then discarded as illogical, irrational, inane, incorrect, crazy, senseless, absurd, sophistic, unreasonable, and unscientific..

Sick and Tired of Ignorance

I feel like I’m going to explode with anger.

I am sick of people spreading false information.

I am tired of people sticking their heads in the ground.

I am sick and tired of people pushing their ignorance and hatred onto other people.

Go away, you stupid f#cks.

The Ten Commandments of Logic

  1. Thou shalt not attack the person’s character, but the argument. (Ad hominem)
  2. Thou shalt not misrepresent or exaggerate a person’s argument in order to make it easier to attack. (Straw man fallacy)
  3. Thou shalt not use small numbers to represent the all. (Hasty generalization)
  4. Thou shalt not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true. (Begging the question)
  5. Thou shalt not claim that because something occurred before, it must be the cause. (Post hoc/False cause)
  6. That shalt not reduce the argument down to two possibilities. (false dichotomy)
  7. That shalt not argue that because of our ignorance, a claim must be true or false. (Ad ignorantum)
  8. That shalt not lay the burden of proof onto him that is questioning the claim. (Burden of proof reversal)
  9. Thou shalt not assume “this” follows “that” when there is no logical connection. (Non sequitur)
  10. That shalt not argue that because is premise is popular, therefore it must be true. (Bandwagon fallacy)
