I've had enough of this type of epiplexis. If you wish to say you think finding facts is important, feel free to do so. Framing a statement of this nature in the form of a question doesn't transform the substance from anything but a personal comment, and often times an insult. Enough.

This is fair notice to you. I'm bookmarking this post and sending it to you via PM. If you employ this rhetorical tactic going forward to insult other posters in any thread in GD or Elections, you will be warned.

Only by the same idiots who think Trump did nothing wrong. And these people are lost causes whose opinions and feelings should be disregarded henceforth.

People who break the law should pay for that.
