    that means “about, give or take a few hundred here or there”

    I would lay odds the justices on the court know they make decisions based on politics and not the law.

    they will find a minutia in law or precedence, no matter how weak, and how powerful law, precedence and arguments against, to come to the decision they wanted to come to in the first place

    replying to gendjinn

    It applies to things like Vietnam, Iraq, etc. So a good rule of thumb is whenever the right is yelling Slippery Slope you know it’s bs, when they aren’t you should be.

    I do agree it does not apply to legislation, I also agree the ss argument can be used when arguing against [...]

    justasking;

    I feel I should add that if you were offended by my saying your argument made no sense then I apologize.

    accepted, as you see in my previous responses to your posts I think the way you meant “your argument makes no sense” was actually “your argument makes no sense to me ” which I would not [...]

    again, response to justasking, posting another valid argument to counter my diary’s point;

    Every regulation negatively impacts somebody. Ergo, you can never use the negative impact of a regulation as the sole argument against it. If you argue against a regulation because of it’s negative impact then either you must be against all regulations without exception, [...]

    quoting “justasking” for his valid rebut to my diary and my answer;

    You don’t see acknowledgment of a middle ground in my statements: Not accept it: consider it. ? Or you’d be wise to consider the odds? Or Argument considered, no danger found, carry on.? Or you consider the ODDS of it happening case-by-case?

    I see [...]

    This is part 2 for this diary , I couldnt access the site on the last day of activity, some very valid posts were made, now posts are closed so I’m opening a new thread to further discuss. Rather then repeat my post, I’ll quote from wiki, which does a far better job then I do;

    In my world, if you’re a billionaire, the government would be allowed to collect it’s bills before you moved anywhere at all.

    then go ahead and make the business somewhere else, see if they can take assets from the economy without paying their share of the expenses.

    I agree with that too, so that would come before my formula

    I made the point to a friend, “if we are partners and you own 75 percent of the business, the business takes in 1000 bux, you don’t get $750 off the top if there are expenses that amount to 900 bux, you get %75 dollars.

    My point being, that top percentile who own such a large portion of our economic assets should be paying that portion of our expenses

    btw, this does not mean they would pay 23.5% in taxes, there are so few in that range their taxes would be exponentially higher then the 23.5 figure

    I seem to hear it on fox all the time lately, Let’s hope whoever Paul tries it on is ready with a good argument concerning the concept of “slippery slope”

    Saying your argument makes no sense is not a personal attack, perris: you’re the one who started that shit.

    justasking, “your argument makes no sense” doesn’t sound like an attack to you?…in my circle it is clearly an attack as is “you don’t know what you are talking about”…which is different then “I completely disagree” which [...]

    Yes your examples are flawed but thats what iI thought was your point

    thanks tcu, you nailed it

    as wiki says, the slippery slope is always flawed, though they used the word fallacious

    not if you refuse to be honest

    you really like peppering your responses with insults, you seem to think that gives your argument more weight, rather, the tactic exposes your argument lack of confidence with it responding in kind, we do agree, we should not continue the argument as YOU are dishonest and claim it is [...]

    If it CAN happen but doesn’t HAVE to happen then — as I said — you’d be wise to consider the odds. You’re not making any sense, perris: you acknowledge that it can and sometimes does happen, then you say ignore it anyway just because it’s the only argument?

    as I said, you always consider the [...]
