    His supporters would cry foul, but even if he survived, he would still claim victory. He's best ignored.

    Unfortunately, when you are dealing with crazy people, there is no solution; even ignoring him will get likely him and certainly his followers to say, "See! They know he's right, that's why they're ignoring him!"

    The best I think we can hope for, is his entirely predictable fiery rocket death. The crazies will lose the person they latch on to, whine about it for a bit, then go back to conspiracy websites and Youtube videos and Alex Jones and generally leave us alone until the next nutjob stirs them up.

    That would be right after, when those nut-jobs claim that it was sabotage to prevent him proving his idea that the Earth is flat.

    Ugh... Could we just take all the flat earthers, moon landing deniers and the 9/11 truthers and put them on an island somewhere?

    How about forcing them to be launched into space - even landed on the moon, perhaps. Then, if they actually still don't believe, let them step out of the craft and find out there's no air out there!

    If they still don't believe, it won't matter anymore, now - will it?

    I think public humiliation is a more sensible approach. It won't be guaranteed... as there is always going to be those who take the stupid side, attempting to support the loser. But the alternative to let things lie and continue to fester, attracting more germs (supporters) is worse.

    Humiliation is only possible with indisputable facts... and if people refuse to accept facts, they need to be called out on it. Even if it means having to go back to the beginning. "2 + 2 = 4". Correct? If they deny it to be true, they are plainly a refusnik. Step by step with little admissions until the final premise is so well bolstered that denial simply means IDIOT.

    There was this rather silly yet practical video I saw ages ago......Let me go find it.



    The 2nd part of the video where they have a giant round mirror orbiting the Earth is what I am talking about, from the reflections in the mirror you can see Earth is round.

    Put them on Guam. So, you know, we can watch the island capsize. :techman:

    Holy crap... an island CAPSIZING? :rofl: That's probably the best example of the WORST intellectual FAIL one can make as an adult, let alone as an elected official. I mean, if Jeff Foxworthy had him on "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" this guy would probably fail miserably.

    This is the kind of stuff that people don't know about their elected representatives, and should be on TV every day. There is a lot more where this came from.

    You just have to pay attention.

    I'm not a US citizen (thank god) but I did know about what that guy said, just I did not know he was democrat.

    That proves you can get dummies on both sides of the house.

    The Republicans have their equivalent. Check out Ron Johnson.
