Biography

Short but sweet.Opinionated but thoughtful. Can usually view both sides of subject and debate either. Courteous and polite but won't be bullied. Do not accept the foolish or wilfully ignorant gladly. Lying is reprehensible and makes a mockery of debate.

Debate Background

most recent: Debate.org. A horrible, shambolic site, that blames its faults on "the sites owners". About 3 yrs on the Versus site which was fun and entertaining.

What do you call forcing 61% of a workforce to lose their wages by striking when they voted against it.

I didn't defend my view because there was no one to defend it against. Your single entry "why " was nonsense . Why would I defend my point against someone who might agree with me?

You don't believe the "needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" which is the very basis of morality. You then use morality as an excuse to deny the death penalty which makes you a hypocrite....

I've found some interesting elevator music but my favourite is the little ditty my I.S.P. people put on whenever I 'phone.
TweetyPie Trump. Why?
2016-12-31 12:06:52
You cannot possibly be so obtuse so I'll assume you are being whimsical.

In that case I suppose peeing of the Chinese and building more nuclear bombs is an early April fools joke.

You can not defend the non-existent. To defend a view you have to enter one. Why is not a " view ".

Are there regulations regarding strike action in New Zealand? In England there has to...

Another thread and no opinion. Whats your favourite?

You keep doing this. You enter a thread and give no opinion. So. Why not.
TweetyPie Trump. Why?
2016-12-31 07:04:51
Don't believe them? The man is reversing current government policy on an almost daily basis and you think he's spoofing. Try streaming the U.S. papers and see what they believe.

Of course. You've seen those big bungalows with a sloping roof? Perfect to keep the snow off. Their flying cars are so coooool!!.
TweetyPie Trump. Why?
2016-12-31 06:02:46
Prior to the election Trump didn't use Twitter to run his business. His minions were not told to buy/sell or report progress by tweet. Trump didn't contact his business friends/rivals and do his deals...

Unions should not be allowed to use strikes or restrictive actions for the 4 days prior to, and after, a public/bank holiday and none during school holidays.

I have just seen a documentary called " Gods of Egypt " which shows Ra moving the Sun around to the other side of a FLAT earth. That is all the proof we flat earthers need.

How can it be state-sponsored murder? Murder is illegal but state executions are legal by definition. Remember the saying " the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few "? Those on death...

Saint Nicholas was indeed real. He was born in 3rd century Turkey and was a Bishop.

What about the lore/law? The bible tells us to execute killers and the judges tell us the same. To say execution is morally wrong is laughable. A killer puts themselves outside any moral consideration...
