A belief in the Easter Bunny is not in itself stupid, but the choice to remain ignorant of the existence of the Easter Bunny, regardless of how strongly one believes in it, is stupid.

And the belief that the Democratic Party is ever going to help the working class is stupid.

Perhaps if the two parties merge ideologically there will finally be room for a third party.

There needs to be a way to put some teeth into law

quote=Greger][You mean there needs to be a way to lock up our political enemies even though the law doesn't say they should be locked up...it's a slippery slope/quote]

It's way beyond a slippery slope when a "president" pardons anyone who obstructs a thoroughly whored justice dept to cover up the most clear sedition attempt in Amerkin history. No penalty, no foul, is the message you would like to send?
Some socialist

Excellent question. How do you think the selection should be done?

Check Mate, she might be reading this dangerous screed! That should not be confused with Scrod!

When a Boston visitor asked his taxi driver where he could get Scrod, the driver responded with:
Ive been asked that question many times, but never in the pluperfect subjunctive!

Dunno.
If we stick with Russiagate, I guess you’d have to seperate out those spreading lies and distortions (the malice) from those that would believe em.

With the Iraq invasion, same thing?
The imprisoned and dead in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Libya, etc.. they’re the German Cleric?

Skull shapes might be simpler.

What do you think?..

Yes!

The pluperfect subjunctive expresses the same time frame as the pluperfect; that is, it expresses a past action that is more past than another past action. The difference is that the pluperfect subjunctive is used in sentences with a main clause that requires the use of the subjunctive mood in the subordinate clause.

I am quite sure that I understood that very well in the distant past, more so than in the recent past, before I came to understand it not at all...

I think the Theory applies to the willing believers of the lies and not particularly to the malicious Pied Piper purveyors of same.

Just think, if people failed to believe the stupid shiit of the stupid shiit shiiters, would that be the end of stupidity?

I wonder who believes this woman (and who votes for her)? Surely they can be classed among the stupid?
