    It's funny, I didn't know who said those things.

    But you know what's funnier? I thought this was going to be some joke about making bad people sound good, by showing that they said good things.

    A little research never hurt anyone before posting.

    I'm tempted to move this into the Fluff Zone.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I answered D on all them before I saw the answers. The tone of the language just didn't sit right with me. But it is funny to see these kinds of things even if they are only hoaxes.

    Weren't you outraged in another thread about how people don't do anything...? I see this as systemic propoganda... it plays a huge part in the lack of motivation people have towards the political system.

    When this becomes humor... the problem is bigger than it seems.

    I think back to that Nazi propaganda where they'd slip comments about Jews being aliens in the middle of school math problems.

    Context is far more important than naked quotes.

    Without the complete statement, there's little room for accurate comparisons. We haven't a real basis to develop an opinion, as our judgment is narrowed to your controlled selection. Quotes probably reveal more about the user than the quoted.


    So, not a Hillary fan?

    Hm...I hadn't considered that since I normally see through this kind of junk. It's hard for me to imagine that there are people out there who would really accept that kind of stuff without the context. However, I disagree to an extent. John Stewart and Stephen Colbert use many of the same tactics for humor and they manage to politically motivate people.

    Temptation is sound.

    Decision is even more sound.

    We could make a similar thread using quotes from George W. Bush, but the quotes wouldn't make any sense.
