There is no shortage of exaggeration and hyperbole in politics. Republicans will routinely point out that Democrats are wrong, but only Democrats make these kind of rhetorical leaps:
Well, if one spends one's time denying and smearing science in order to protect one's profits, what exactly does that make one?
What else would you call removing collective bargaining rights? Unions, by definition, involve collective bargaining.
Okay, that's fair. Simply cutting the Dept of Ed's budget does not make one against improving schools, unless one also does not have a plan for improving schools . . . oh, well then.
Refusing to pass legislation that only benefits poor people until a tax cut for people inheriting millions is tacked on, well, what would you call that?
They have no other plan to ensure clean water, so what am I to make of that?
IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!
"Ban"? In this context, no, they're just making it impossible for poor women to get birth control and abortions. It's not actually banning per se, but it's the next best thing. Effectively, for the poor women involved, it's the same thing.
Um, if passing racist legislation in Arizona were "improving border security and enforcing immigration laws", I'd agree with you, but words, they have meaning.
Well, if they're not eating at lunch, and they're not eating at home . . . Honestly, I knew people who deliberately failed classes during the regular school year to ensure that they had to go to summer school. They didn't like going to school year round, they liked eating year round.
Or stupid. Take your pick.
Paying off their loans and eating on a regular basis, that is.
I thought progressives were supposed to be more nuanced…
I've never claimed to be "more" nuanced . . .
*I suspect someone may say "Sign language, I win, you're wrong!", but that's still words. It's just words communicated via fingers instead of lips and tongues.
