Are you serious?
After the last ~5 posts, you are still failing to understand what 'the point' of that data is within the scope of this thread?
No, I don't understand it. T'Girl made a disjointed comment about people on welfare, the unemployed and the disabled and about drugs and artists. In response to questions, she posted statistics with no discussion.
So, no, I don't understand her point. Most of those last 5 posts were people responding with their own understanding of what T'Girl meant.
Do you understand it? If so, please explain it to me. Otherwise, I'll wait for T'Girl to speak for herself.
It's a rhetorical device designed to create doubt in the audience as to the moral authority of the welfare state and to justify the economic suffering of the impoverished.
We're not in your fantasy world, Sci. You would be shocked how little of reality is about your far-left beliefs.
In the discussed case, I merely pointed out to PhoenixClass how playing the idiot when s/he runs out of arguments, far from gaining her points in a discussion, merely embarasses him/her.
Indeed, s/he should be thankful. Most readers merely have a good laugh at his/her expense in the privacy of their own homes, letting him/her unaware of this failure mode.
