    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So what has Sarah Palin done lately? : Sorry, but it's very hard to take you seriously.  You do amuse me, though. But you DO have a real tendency not to think critically before hitting that "submit" button; else, half the things you say would never see daylight.  It hurts your credibility.  Your 'point-of-view' is not your problem; it's your muddled logic and lack of presentation and foresight that renders your 'jokes' flat and your arguments moot.  I'm just being honest.   And I don't work in a college, although I have taught various classes.  Both my feet are firmly in the corporate private sector, so you're wrong yet AGAIN.  (See? credibility...)

    Nothgn wrong with my logic.  It must be your comprehension skills.

    Hey, take a look athis on critical thinking:

    "But critical thinking today has reached the point of the Euro: in need of some serious revision. As Greece may need to go back on the drachma, the American liberal-arts college may need to get back on the trivium. The intellectual profligacy of our time is the use of the term “critical thinking” as a rubric for the application of cookie-cutter ideologies. When the term is employed on many college campuses, at least in the humanities, it often stands for a shallow and reductionist formula that refers to almost all forms of cultural expression as masks of power or hierarchy, and that finds themes of race, class, and gender are the most important elements in this masquerade."

    In other words, it's bull-hockey liberals hide behind.

    No, it's your logic.  My comprehension is fairly acute, as I've amply demonstrated here.

    The article is just didactics and not specific to right- or left-leaning arguments.  However, I'll re-phrase for your benefit:
     
    Maybe your critical thinking skills are fine but it's your critical writing that really needs help, because your displayed mastery of the latter doesn't really support your expressed claim of the former.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So what has Sarah Palin done lately? : so, where have I made an unjust accusation?  Where have I claimed that you said something you did not? you progressives are just so serious, and so sensitive, and completely hide behind the "critical thinking" defense, which is you way of saying " I'm better than you". Maybe you are. Who knows.
    Posted by skeeter20[/QUOTE]

    I never said nor claimed anyone or myself is "better".  You're the sensitive one here, taking my "critical thinking" comment to heart.

    Here's a test:

    Find a viewpoint you disagree with.  Compose your rebuttal, but don't send it.  Wait a while and then look at what you wrote.  If you still want to submit as is, then go for it.  If you need to edit, then you didn't really think it through the first time.

    Writing is editing.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So what has Sarah Palin done lately? : Oh please. Right there in your post is more of the "credibility" business Matty was talking about. What do I mean? Every time one of your fire-from-the-hip statements is beat up and ground into the dust....you lamely come out with....  "oh, I wasn't being serious." Think about why that defense doesn't get you anywhere even if you win. Keep thinking.... Answer. Two scenarios are possible. You lose in each. 1.  You are telling the truth. Conclusion for reader: Gee, skeeter argues his point for 5 thread pages, and then says he isn't serious. I would be a fool to treat anything he says as a valid poitn, because chances are, he's not being serious but hasn't admitted it yet. 2. You are lying. Conclusion for the reader: Skeeter really was serious about the things he says he wasn't being serious about. Those things were incredibly stupid. Therefore, chances are that other things he says are stupid. Moreover, he lied about being serious, so he may be lying about other things he says. To sum up, your defense leads to two possible conclusions (1) skeeter is a non-serious person to be laughed of, (2) skeeter is a stupid liar. Not really where you want to go, eh?

    Wow.  You are wound a bit tight, aren't you?  You're not serious, are you?  arguing my point equals lying?  Man.  Talk about lack of critical thinking.

    Posted by WhatDoYouWantNow[/QUOTE]

    See?   I give you some info on critical thinking, and do you respond critically?  No.  You resort to personal attacks and insults.

    You can't defend your position, you don't even try.  How "critical " is that?

    No, I'm pretty sure my logig is sound, trust me.  If it is not your comprehension, then you must be willfully blind. 

    Yah, my writing could use some work.  That I admit.  However, I make money, not poetry.  I have never found my communication to be an impediment. in my pursuit of money.

    So condescending.  I'm not sensitive, I'm just stating what I have found to be true in life, that liberal elites hide behind the critical thinking charge when they are unable to muster a defense.

    Thanks for your advice, but, like I said, not going to sweat it.  I find plenty of people here get my drift, but apparently not you.  Think you might be the problem?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So what has Sarah Palin done lately? : Hey, you said it yourself. Either you aren't serious (and are thus unworthy of being heard), or, you are lying about not being serious. Crappy defense. Still, why should I care? According to you, you're so weak you'll vote however I tell you to vote (because I'm on "the left", you say)
    Posted by WhatDoYouWantNow[/QUOTE]

    Tell me who to vote for, because, I'm really undecided.  Should I vote for a candidate who thinks that my entire life's work is some sort of crime against the poor, or some one who wants to encourage me to take my wealth and do good through investment?

    Tell, me, I really want to know.

    I'm talking about the dog catcher race in Bristol country.  Isn't that obvious?

    Apparently you need to dumb it down a bit for WDYWN to be able to catch on.
