That is the best laugh I've had in ages. On par with the usual reporting (making stuff up I should say) from that source.

Honestly, who with an IQ over room temp doesn't know you can't take FauxNews seriously?

Spun by Reuters.

And the media echo chamber is engaged. We have an "expectation" that is now rumored to be reduced. Of course, it was the analyst's expectation to begin with, and it's also his/her EXPECTATION that orders will decrease.

In other words, it's complete bullsh*t

I've reported the filth, BTW. Hopefully, someone will let you know that you need to clean up your act.

When it comes to political issues, Fox News is currently the only major news network who dares to be critical of the current regime. The other networks, such as MSNBC and CNN suck so much dick, that they're almost completely in the pocket of the current administration. People with diminished mental capacities who like to watch liberal dick sucking and vile propaganda tune into channels like MSNBC, while other more sane people who prefer more critical reporting tune into Fox.

As for this Fox article about Apple, they're merely citing a bunch of Analysts, and whole bunch of them are quoted in the article. I bet you that if the exact same article had appeared on another news site, then the same brainwashed liberals that are getting their panties all wet right now, wouldn't be doing so.

Anyone who is as smart as you claim to be, doesn't have to tell us. Their actions will show us. You do provide an interesting point of view when you aren't talking about all that conservative vs. liberal non-sense most of which isn't actually true or based on the facts.

As for fox news, I watched them for years and not because I agreed with them. I watched them because they were able to make the news entertaining even when I didn't agree with them at all which was most (90%) of the time.

I like you as a person though.

Yes, it is obvious. When you have your parties talking points served up as if they were news and you doesn't mind that multiple studies show that simply watching the station means you tend to be less informed about reality, you like it there in your nice fuzzy home where they reinforce your prejudice, ignorance, and jingoism. It is a winning formula for getting viewers.

It just isn't that great for informing people or reflecting reality.

But i am sure you are the exception to all studies, and are far smarter than all the rest of us.

I don't claim to be that smart, though I'm certainly smarter than probably 95% of liberals, but that isn't really saying much. If somebody is going to claim and repeat the liberal talking point about "faux news" viewers being dumb, then I would like to challenge them to a duel, an intellectual duel, and they had better be prepared to lose.

Cockroaches outnumber people. They are still less than human. As are most conservatives.

Also, the appeal to numbers to support an ideology is a logical fallacy. You just lost the dual of intellect you were bragging about winning, and we haven't even started. Well done.

On the plus side you are an excellent representative of your political ideology.

The dual of intellect?

If this an example of you showing off your superior liberal dual-core intellect, then you might as well give up right away.

So if you commit a logical fallacy and I commit an iPhone autocorrect you are smarter?

I think I can let the case rest on that alone...

And you showed what a partisan hack you are by attacking all conservatives.

Did you call Apple ][ a partisan hack when he essentially said all liberals were retarded? Nope.

You won't win anybody to the conservative side with talk like that, or that in your previous post.

This is what got me to post in PO again?

Ignore list increased by one.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

1. He made a tongue-in-cheek comment about liberals and not understanding the popularity of Fox News. That is not even close to calling them "retarded." Words mean stuff.

2. Shen went further. He said conservatives were "less than human." I didn't get the impression it was tongue-in-cheek, though I could be wrong.

3. Regardless, I am not the arbiter of what's appropriate and what's not. It's not my job to evenly take issue with all statements, regardless of political hue.

People, I'm at a loss as to what to do here. I've already soft-deleted one post for excessive foul language.

Calling each other names isn't a solution, it's part of the problem. Call each other names while saying you're on the better side? Sorry, you totally failed the quiz. Not by lack of intelligence, but by lack of self-restraint and humility.

The sooner everyone rises above their instincts, the sooner problems can be solved.

Unfortunately, with several regulars here in Political Outsider, name-calling and ad-hominem attacks are the norm and apparently allowed. At least most of the incidents I report seem to be ignored.

Forgive me for perpetuating Apple ]['s hijacking of this thread, but may I suggest that if liberals are to present themselves as being more fair than conservatives they must hold themselves to a higher standard? Suggesting that any ideological adherents are "less than human" can only be counterproductive.

That's the post that was left. I'm pretty sure one of his other ones was deleted. Tongue in cheek? I think not. You're just making excuses and only defending your team.

I expect more of this nonsense from you and the Lefties as Obama disintegrates further. Desperation is setting in. You cannot defend the indefensible, so you're left with ad hominems alone. And it's not just you. tonton is in another thread screaming that I'm "intellectually dishonest" and "ignorant" because I didn't realize he used the phrase "valid claim" in a certain context. Hands already had his Rick Perry Is Satan orgy. It's going to be quite the show.

Well, of course you'd think that.

Conservatives are all really stupid, and can't read properly. They can't understand a damn thing they read, honestly. I'd say 95% of them, anyway. You definitely fall inside that 95% of conservative people who can't understand anything, SDW. You just made that perfectly clear.

What? I'm just poking.
