Rationality Required

by bauer on October 1, 2013

I’ve had it with this government shutdown over the Affordable Care Act (I refuse to call it Obamacare anymore). From what I can find, the arguments on the right have revolved around the notions about being “right”, or about “morality”, or “America”. These are emotional drivel. They have no meaning whatsoever. I can just as easily say you’re wrong, evil, and Nazi. None of these arguments have any validity. They don’t get us anywhere. To me, this is coming down to being RATIONAL. It’s about producing evidence, supporting hypotheses with logical arguments, and simply knowing what something like “statistically significant” means. If you are incapable of producing such, you have no standing to participate in serious discussion. Provide evidence, work within the system, and act like human beings. If you’re worried about something, make your case. You want to change my mind, do that. Otherwise, go get your guns, come on over to my house, and put me out of the misery of having to deal with you, because I’m sick of it.
