Comment Re:"Giant steps are what you take. . ." (Score 1) 17

There is a huge difference between the comment you wrote where you changed the topic completely, and the comment of mine that you linked to, that you are trying to use to accuse me of a similar offense.

What? You wrote the linked material, and are as capable of admitting a fault as you are telling the truth.

Namely, you happily jettisoned the entire discussion in the name of partisanship.

You're the one leaping from "left" to a specific party here. That would be a fact, and hence removed from consideration by you, AFAICT.

So no, I am not applying different rules.

You've never been one to acknowledge rules enough to begin applying them.

It is not clear that any of those words mean what you think them to.

I had 4.5 years of sea time in the Navy, not that I'm necessarily pushing a "appeal to authority". But let's just say after 3 WESPACs and a Persian Excursion, I'm semi-decent with nautical allusions.

or do you just want to keep talking about (your thoughts about) me?

We can continue exploring your resemblance to a wretched crapflooder, if you like. Or not.

You keep saying that you believe you can't get what you want by using the legal system - both with the POTUS as well as with Hillary - so you have nothing left but to advocate for more extralegal action.

This logical leap is wholly, 100%, and entirely owned by you, and of your own devising.

You very plainly have been calling for discarding the legal system when it doesn't suit your aims.

Is it the case that, when all of your other flaccid arguments fail, as they must, you have no recourse other than lying?

Oh, sorry. I though when you did the

riff, you were OK'ing the non sequiturs. I forget: you apply one ruleset to me, and none to yourself. A thousand pardons, Your Royal Hindquarters.

Comment Re:Not a "protoype space station" if it's in space (Score 1) 52

Prototypes often work perfectly well. In fact, if you've got any sense you make sure you've got a prototype that works before you start making non-prototypes.

In this case, they're calling it a prototype because it's a little can that doesn't do much except serve as a docking target.
