    How is this fair to Kavanaugh? Now if it is only women's rights you care about, what about Kav's daughters and wife and mother?
    Perhaps Whodey's so accustomed to receiving serious
    death threats that he pretends to shrug them all off,
    but Christine Blasey Ford and her family are different.

    Christine Blasey Ford does not seek to be on the Supreme Court.
    Brett Kavanaugh should be held to a higher standard of truthfulness.

    Now it's your turn Dims. Why should we believe Ford?
    You believe Kavanaugh because you’re a dope.

    I’m not gonna judge in this case, as I’ve already pointed out. But to suggest you believe this horrible man before all the facts are known is moronic.

    It'd also be interesting to talk about multikulti itself having a direct impact on these abysmal numbers.
    The Singaporean education system typically scores highly in international comparisons.

    Singapore is a multicultural society.

    I disagree. We had hyperinflation in the 70s and the Saudi embargo cannot be blamed for that. After Iraq was invaded we saw oil prices soar, yet no hyperinflation.

    That is the problem with economic theory. It is not economic fact.
    You had stagflation in the US. Something that was not foreseen due to multiple reasons. But saying that a huge price increase in oil prices due to the OPEC embargo didn't have any effect on the overall price level is bonkers. Money supply wasn't the only reason for inflation during the oil crisis.

    I don't think I've mentioned hyperinflation once, so stop moving the goal post.

    You are just repeating unsupported economic theory.
    Supply price increases are mostly because of inflation. What?

    Competition is supposed to keep prices in check. What?

    Which Iraq war?

It is not, because many traits related to appearance vary on a continuous scale.
    So it's not actually where they are born then, is it?

    Comically, she also boasts about her ping pong skills.
    My own 'ping pong' skills are legendary.

    Should I check in the mirror sir to see if I am Chinese?

    And why is it that centers of American Progressivism is so sexually deviant and violent?
    So what are you arguing for? That women should not go to university in case they're sexually assaulted?

    Yeah, let's do it.

    What do you prefer? Skype? Google hangouts?

    Let's talk about why you are wrong about Trump supporters, and I'll record it (and you can record it, too) and I'll put it up unedited and everyone can hear you tell me how you feel that Trump supporters are dumb and I'll tell you why you are wrong.

    It's free and easy.
    Sir, it's clear you're letting your emotions get the better of you. The fact is there are some well educated and intellectually gifted Trump supporters out there. I was speaking of that block of 62,984,828 Trump voters in general, and if you would please read through the links I posted, you'll find there are more than a few grains of truth in what I said. 🙂

    Now, please breath deeply and repeat after me:

    Come on. Spain should build a wall across the Sahara. How is this retarded?

    Hahahaha.

    "According to Josep Borrell, the US president brushed off the scepticism of Spanish diplomats – who pointed out that the Sahara stretched for 3,000 miles – saying: “The Sahara border can’t be bigger than our border with Mexico.”"

    I think the Sahara thing pretty much sums up the madness of moronity.

    Why don’t the Greeks build a wall between San Francisco and New York.
    Hell! Let’s all build walls everywhere!

    And why stick with walls. What about moats?
    That used to work wonders!

    Don’t be silly shav, since helicopters, moats haven’t been any good. You can just fly over a moat.
    That’s why we need walls.

    Sometimes I think my brains are just gonna leak out my ears and form a droplet on the carpet.
