    So while Europe sits around scratching its head on what to do with continuing terrorist activity by immigrants, and then sweeping them under the rug as inconsequential, Hungry will instead be focusing on their own problems and focus on representing those who elected them.

    do you have any idea what satire is? that many satire shows/newspapers are more reliable to get information from? that jon stewart for example has been considered many times more reliable than fox or cnn?

    do you know that to question the source of the information rather than the information is a logical fallacy and betrays what a weak debater one is? here is a nice little homework for you: look it up on wikipedia and tell the class exactly that fallacy is called.

    whoosh over your head again.

    There was a point z, and you played perfectly into my little trap by repeating almost exactly what you've said before to myself and others. Please reread your response it's not about the cracked site..

    By your own words; you trip over your own shoe laces; what a sap you are. This really is toooooooo easy.

    Well yes, but the cat I'm currently looking after is a more reliable source than Fox news.

    I have no great desire to engage you z, I regard is as snot, but at times quite funny snot. When I read your comment on what does and doesn't make a master debater I nearly choked on my coffee, in fact some coffee came out of my nose instead of zahlanzi.

    Here's the quote:

    "...do you know that to question the source of the information rather than the information is a logical fallacy and betrays what a weak debater one is?..."

    Why the question mark? Is it your doubt, surely it's easier to leave out all punctuation, or you could have used the '/' instead, and saved having to activate the shift key.

    Here's what does make a weak debater, doubt covered with insult.

    But there's something much worse, hypocrisy, inconsistency, contradiction.

    I think the reason for the question mark is that the sentence you quoted is a question. "Do you know that [statement]?" is a question and therefore gets a question mark. Although I disagree with Zahlanzi, a debater who relies on weak sources of information risks their information being unreliable and provided that their source is being criticized on reliability, rather than just because it is left wing (or right wing depending on the bias of the critic), I think it is a valid tactic in a debate. The logical fallacy is to go on from that and attempt to claim that the conclusion is incorrect because it is based on information from a weak source - unsound is not the same as wrong.

    I don't have a problem with questioning the credentials of a source, have done so before and will do so again, there's no hypocrisy there. I'm familiar with cracked magazine,I used to read it at around 12 years of age when it was the poor retarded cousin of "Mad Magazine."

    The point has been, as it often is with zahalanzi,, is his hypocrisy, inconsistency and contradiction, which are the true signs of a weak debater.

    You see we often hear this from z:

    "...do you know that to question the source of the information rather than the information is a logical fallacy and betrays what a weak debater one is?"

    But in only the post just before the one quoted here he dismissed the source of the original post as an 'ashole' without making any attempt at the content.

    Hypocrisy so glaring it burns your eyes.
