They were trying to cover both bases of the terrible stat, especially since it explicitly referenced gun control.

But go ahead, and be confused by words.

You literally mention it every time I post from there. But I guaran-damn-tee you, it's at least 100,000 times more accurate than that shitty "factoid" you and Gordon posted about reading.

Stop posting from there. Also, I was just being a smart ass with the STUNNED thing because that your capitalizing it was so snarky.

Can I go to Snopes and fact check that sentence?

By the way, I just said I had seen it, not that I agreed or disagreed with it. I have crazy right wing uncles, so there aren't many right wing memes that I don't see at one point or another. Hell, I saw another "Obama wasn't born here and this proves it" one last night.

Stop being so reluctant to hear facts. A lack of perfection doesn't mean stop listening/reading.

If I say it, you can just assume it's 110% truthy.

Ditto.

You will be STUNNED to learn that that statement is Not true.


"Mostly False" is exactly as accurate as claiming it is "Kinda True."

Checkmate.

In what way does me engaging you in conversation suggest that I'm reluctant to hear facts?

I'm the most fact accepting person around this place!

Bah! I've been in fuck off mode since a conference call will Dell at 1.

In fact, fuck this place. I think I'll go home as soon as my current run in Soda Dungeon ends.

Clearly mentally deranged man thankfully never bought a gun.

This guy should be exhibit A towards bringing back insane asylums. He willingly turned himself in. He knew what he did and wanted to do was wrong.

Another mass stabbing.

When will we finally ban knives?

It's being reported, but Kavanaugh is dominating the headlines. The fact that the shooter is a woman should be getting this story a lot of coverage, but it isn't.

Also, with no clear motive, it screams "mental health" issues.

I saw "Tennessee" and thought, "Has to be Memphis". Nashville is getting just as bad lately, but I think they need a few years to catch up with this level of balls/sophistication.
