Surprise: Snopes wrote something decent about Trump

Broadly speaking, most of the falsehoods levelled against Trump fall into one or more of four categories, each of them drawing from and feeding into four public personas inhabited by the President.

They are:

  • Donald Trump: International Embarrassment
  • Trump the Tyrant
  • Donald Trump: Bully baby
  • Trump the Buffoon.

Some of these claims are downright fake, entirely fabricated by unreliable or dubious web sites and presented as satire, or otherwise blatantly false. But the rest — some of which have gained significant traction and credibility from otherwise serious people and organizations — provide a fascinating insight into the tactics and preoccupations of the broad anti-Trump movement known as “the Resistance,” whether they were created by critics of the President or merely shared by them.

Generally speaking, we discovered that they are characterized and driven by four types of errors of thought:

  • Alarmism
  • A lack of historical context or awareness
  • Cherry-picking of evidence (especially visual evidence)
  • A failure to adhere to Occam’s Razor — the common-sense understanding that the simplest explanation for an event or behavior is the most likely.

CBO’s Failed Obamacare Enrollment Projections

Why should we trust the CBO’s projections about GOP plans?

They got Obamacare off by MORE than 50%!

In 2012, the CBO estimated that 25 million people would have coverage under Obamacare right now. According to a June 2017 report from HHS, only 10.3 million were actually enrolled. CBO’s guess was off by nearly 15 million people. And as the chart shows, CBO has consistently gotten it wrong.

Animal Crazies

The extremists from PETA are a special bunch, as naive as they are deranged. They live in a dream world where vegetables feel pain and meat should magically appear, already packaged with no harm done to animals. Just once I wish I could run into some of these ninnies.

The Truth Behind Milk: It’s Not Food It’s Violence

THESE IDIOTS THINK COWS ARE KILLED FOR THEIR MILK. AS ONE WHO LIVED ON A FARM, I CAN TELL YOU CATTLE ARE NOT “RAPED FOR THEIR MILK,” NOR IS ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION RAPE. THEIR YOUNG ARE TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM AT BIRTH SO THEY CAN PRODUCE MILK THROUGH POST-PARTUM LACTATION. BEEN DOING IT FOR MILLENNIA.

It’s not Food, It’s Violence

THIS NITWIT IS PROTESTING HOW FOOD IS PRODUCED. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE ENJOYS THE END RESULT QUITE A BIT.

Most Insane Liberal Ever? Man Yells at Fishermen, Claims Fish Have Same Abilities as Human Children
In a bizarre viral video, an “animal rights activist” in St. Petersburg, Florida, harassed two men fishing and threw their catch back into the water.
“You guys just gonna let this fish die like this? What if this was a human child?” shouted an unidentified man from the group ‘Direct Action Everywhere Pinellas’. “They have the same abilities and emotions as a human child! That’s fact sir. That’s facts from science sir! I’m not harassing you, you’re harassing this fish sir!”
The activists brought a 9-year-old boy to first confront the men fishing. The boy asked “Did you know fish feel pain?”

FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR, THE FISH THEY CAUGHT IS A TILAPIA. THEY ARE DELICIOUS. THEY WERE NOT IN A FISHING BOAT, WHICH OFTEN HAS AN AERATED LIVEWELL TO KEEP FISH ALIVE UNTIL THEY ARE RELEASED OR TAKEN OUT TO BE CLEANED AND EATEN, SINCE JESUS FED THE MULTITUDES WITH TWO OF THEM, ALONG WITH 5 LOAVES.

OUR TRIP TO LAKE GENEVA, WISCONSIN LAST WEEK PRODUCED A MIXED BAG OF BLUEGILLS, PUMPKINSEEDS, ROCK BASS, AND A SMALLMOUTH BASS AND A LARGEMOUTH, WHICH MOST CONSIDER SPORT FISH AND GENERALLY RELEASE UNHARMED. NO, THE HOOK DOESN’T HURT AS LONG AS THEY ARE HOOKED IN THE LIP.

THESE ARE BLUEGILLS… THEY ARE ABUNDANT AND REPRODUCE RAPIDLY. IF THE POPULATION IS NOT CONTROLLED THEY OVERPOPULATE AND THEY END UP STUNTED.
WE EAT THESE:

THIS IS A SMALLMOUTH
WE DON’T EAT THESE:

WE DON’T KEEP LARGEMOUTH BASS EITHER

There is an old saying: “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you can be rid of him every weekend.”

The toll humans take on fish population pales in comparison to the way nature propagates the species.
Muskie(Muskellunge) are at the top of the freshwater food chain.
They have no natural enemies except man. They are extremely hard to catch and are known as “the fish of 10,000 casts”.

WaPo: Polar Bears ‘Hurt By Climate Change’ Could Develop A Taste For Human Flesh

I GUESS I BETTER GET A HIGH POWERED RIFLE WITH A 20 POWER SCOPE AND 20 ROUNDMAGAZINE, JUST IN CASE A POLAR BEAR ENDS UP IN MY BACK YARD IN ILLINOIS, LOOKING TO EAT ME.
“Polar bears hurt by climate change are more likely to turn to a new food source — humans” is the rather chilling headline WaPo went with in its article, published Thursday. The Post reported that with higher temperatures, “the more likely polar bears are to interact with humans — and possibly attack and eat them.”

Union Files Grievance Over Goats Mowing On Western Michigan’s Campus

New, hungry workers on Western Michigan University’s campus have drawn a union grievance.
After a half-acre trial run in 2016, Western Michigan University hired a team of goats this summer to clear 15 woodland acres on campus.
Goats consume three to five pounds of vegetation per day, according to rental company Munchers on Hooves LLC, and they leave behind natural fertilizer.
