Kurt: not a good idea to  create or post falsehoods when attacking the posts or positions of other people. It distracts from your point, however justified it is, and greatly reduces your trustworthiness.

Frankly, I don't know wtf you're doing lately. Maybe you're worried about the pandemic and economic crisis getting worse. Too bad Trump isn't.

Your posts are good exercise for those muscles. I've cut back because I don't want to overdevelop them.

People post false information all the time. Most of them actually believe it; you posted something you knew was untrue. If someone engages in honest debate a correction is welcome. When you post a deliberate lie you've sent out a signal: the truth is irrelevant here, claims are just a shot exchanged in a war of words.

There is no intention of an honest debate when a deliberately misleading meme is deliberately posted to make a point.  All is fair in what, if any, rebuttals should come back at the poster.  There was no genuine intent for an honest debate with this meme, unless you are calling rd stupid, careless and poorly informed.  Otherwise, assuming he is smart and well informed, it can rightly be taken as purely divisive with malicious intent.  It was a stand alone post, not in response to anyone or anything, so I'll take the latter.

Wait—are you saying that you personally edited the Wikipedia entry on Nikki Haley? So that the entry states that Haley was born in a hospital in Bamberg, SC? So that you could help perpetuate what you claim is a falsehood (namely that Haley was born in the US and so can run for POTUS)?


"Did it to counter fake news with fake news and see who was paying attention."


Kurt, I ask again: why do you hate America so much? 

I don't know which part of Nikki's bio you supposedly doctored with fake news, but other news- and fact-gathering organizations besides Wikipedia report that Haley was born in South Carolina. So your fake-news insertion about Haley's birthplace seems to agree with...Oh poor Kurt...the facts.

You really seem to have it in for the Jews and fat people, too.  What do you do when you see a fat Jewish person ?
 
You are in fine shape aren't you?  You seem to have as much trouble reading as your favourite president does.

So let's see.

The kurtster supports US obesity and sitting policies because kurtster is proud of  US contemporary health outcomes and believes the C-19 pandemic is largely fake news.

kurtster supports:

- a 43% adult obesity rate, headed to 50% according to some experts
-  high rates of COPD
-  high rates of diabetes 
-  more and more dementia
-  chronic pain
-  opioid drug savers
-  the lowest green taxes on deadly, polluting fossil fuel distillates among the rich western countries
-  killing innocents for the American cheap energy entitlement.
- anthropogenic climate disruption
 
Odd remark about Jews.  I reckon that most Americans who identify as Jewish or of Jewish descent despise and deeply loath President Trump and many of his followers.    Plan on sending these Jewish Americans to a re-education camp kurtster?

The best critics of the Israeli ethnic-cleansing, nation building programme are.....  wait for it.... you already guessed....  Jewish!   This situation is somewhat similar to the US Vietnam War effort — where loyal, proud American heroes could simply not kill enough 'gooks'.   Americans individuals figured among the best critics of this ill-advised but oh so deadly war.

So let's explore your anti-Semiticism kurtster.    Do you consider Arabs to  be full fledged human beings, sub-human or on par with animals?    You sure kill enough of them.  

Do you support the Israeli kill ratios?  Do you support the Israeli settlers and among them the Hill Top Youths?  
 
You clearly believe what you believe.  I don't give a flying fuck any more.  What ever you want to say about me is true.  

Did you get a thrill typing "gooks" ?  I'll bet you would really like typing "slopes".  Go ahead, try it, you'll like it !

Have a nice day.

Gee kurtster, you are indeed a Child of the Trump.    You are more than qualified to run for Congress under the Republican banner.  Indeed, it is true kurtster, two, three and more wrongs make a right.

Haley?   So kurtster, got a question for you.  How many more American lives are you willing to sacrifice in order to support the Israeli nuclear weapons backed ethnically cleansing terrorism programme?   You can split those American lives into white and non-white Americans if you want to.

How is using your middle name and your husband's last name as your professional name deceitful as you are trying to claim here ?

I would make the opposite claim that you are trying to make that if she kept her maiden name it would be done to game the system playing Democratic Racist Party Identity Politics.

Fail. Epic at that, especially considering all that you post here ...

But here is the real story that you missed ...

Her marriage was arranged so that she could get citizenship by marrying Haley.  This disqualifies her from ever being able to be POTUS.
 

"Her marriage was arranged so that she could get citizenship by marrying Haley. This disqualifies her from ever being able to be POTUS."
Wikipedia says nope. Or do you have super-secret info on Nikki that can only be shared on a full blue moon with Trump Faithful?

Early life and education

Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa to an Indian Punjabi American Sikh family at Bamberg Country Hospital in Bamberg, South Carolina. Her father, Ajit Singh Randhawa, and her mother, Raj Kaur Randhawa, immigrated to the United States from Amritsar District, Punjab, India. Her father was formerly a professor at Punjab Agricultural University, and her mother received her law degree from the University of Delhi.
