An Exercise...

For anyone interested, here's a brief examination of what it means to accept the premise of an argument using a rather timely topic.

So basically, I'm going to go with:

1) If Greenhouse gasses are Bad...


2) We get Greenhouse Gasses by burning fossil fuels...


3) We should get on the stick and start building Nuclear Power Plants w/50-year cores and converting things to electricity!!!

This decision isn't the rocket-science-part, people!!!

Agreed, MD... "This decision isn't the rocket-science-part, people!"

That's why I am so continuously amazed that so many otherwise intelligent beings do not get it.

"Dear Doug,
Here is your horoscope
for Friday, June 13:

"Today is perfect for starting a million different projects -- don't worry about how they'll shape up in the long term. If they're worth doing, someone (not necessarily you) will take over.

Alrighty then, I'll just accept your premise and slack off a bit.
See if you know what you're talkin' about.

By the way, you made it on time.
That's a start!

I am reasonably well. Of course, this time of year, my hay fever is at its worst, but I really can't complain about something I can deal with by taking cheap OTC medication sporadically.

Dougman said...

Good to hear Monster!
My wife has finally, FINALLY, been diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that has been keeping her disabled most of her days. Now she's on 7 daily medications that really haven't had the desired effect.
Anyways,'bout them politicians? heh

Dougman said...

Any word from Lionell? I wonder if he's still kicking butts around on the net :)

Dougman said...

What is it that you think of me?

Dougman said...

You don't have to answer that.
I was so drunk, I barely remember typing that.
