So, theirs is a model to be emulated? Real civilized.
WJF: How could any reasonable person be expected to get the point of the non sequitur you posted as a history lesson?
That and a buck and a half will get you a cup of coffee. So, what's your point?
I have already told you what my point was. Please read the previous response. I can't make it any more clear.
Despite being being given the correct information, Walker persists in using the example to make his argument. The facts don't support his point, so he ignores them, and tells a story that does.
ATB: Would you mind giving examples of the bombast in the above statements? I see them as quite civil, but maybe I'm missing something.
Are you suggesting that Walker hasn't been making the claim cited in my earlier post?
Ad hominem attacks are commonly the first line of attack when the author doesn't have the competence to martial a coherent argument.
“In 2010, there was a young woman named Megan Sampson who was honored as the outstanding teacher of the year in my state. And not long after she got that distinction, she was laid off by her school district...” Scott Walker speaking in Iowa last month. In reality, Claudia Felske, a member of the faculty at East Troy High School was named a Wisconsin Teacher of the Year in 2010, not Sampson. He continues to make this claim even though he's been corrected.
