If anyone would like a very thorough and complete explanation on the case for skepticism in regards to the Russian hoax please let me know as I'd be happy to walk you through the entire thing from beginning to end and answer any questions that you might have. The case for skepticism is rock solid and can't be rationally disputed by anyone in a logically consistent way (I can demonstrate that you're not able to hold the standard consistently and that you're making special exceptions due to personal biases). If you've been duped by the lying media into believing in this hoax, I think I can convince you to be more skeptical of the official narrative and why it doesn't make sense either on the face of it or especially when you subject the conspiracy theory to even a minimal amount of rational scrutiny. I can help walk you through this issue and explain why some explanations are better than others, and why the totality of evidence is firmly on one side of this issue. Now I realize this may not be transparently obvious to some of you, because in order to know certain basic facts about this case you have to be willing to swallow the pill and read a lot of conservative media such as Breitbart, Fox News, and other more obscure outlets, but luckily for you I've done that so you don't have to. I've spent over a year researching this issue almost religiously. I've been through every twist and turn, constantly trying to prove my theory wrong and find counter-evidence against my assumptions, but the harder you look the more it just stacks up against the conspiracy theory. I think it makes most sense to just lay out all the *FACTS* of the case (not speculation) and then see how that compares to overall narrative/story. What you will find is that the official media narrative can't really be reconciled with even the most basic facts about this case. If we removed "Trump" and replaced it with "Obama" you would quickly see how silly and preposterous this entire thing is. In fact, I think that because it's Trump, that's the only reason anyone believes in this story at all. I think if Obama were accused of precisely the same thing given the *EXACT* same standard of evidence, nobody would believe it. People would take one look at the evidence that *does* exist and say this is bullshit. They wouldn't be saying "well there is some secret evidence that nobody has seen, we don't really know, we have to wait." Most rational people would come to the only rational conclusion here, which is that it's entirely bullshit and you've been duped.
@bronsonkaahui See if Daniel ( @sharkb8 ) wants in on this....he has been a big proponent of why we need Mueller (and he appears to not be worried about how unethical lots of the people on the Mueller team are!) Mention all the un-investigated (or poorly investigated) things pertaining to Hillary - and he deflects. I wonder if his eyes have been opened with the new facts coming out.
@mvineyard well as I said I can, at a very minimum, demonstrate logical inconsistency. For some people (non-intellectuals) that's generally not an issue.
:( Yaz took my seat lol
@bronsonkaahui You can have mine, I'll drop out I need to research anyway.
@mvineyard also known as the "Gish Gallop."
@josh808 which part of the island you live on?
@alot_like_locke what happened?
@bronsonkaahui Battery died lol
anyone up for a convo?
@selahozshalom me :O
PHILO DISCUSSION: Free will, the ability to make conscious decisions/choices that can affect outcomes. @behind_the_veil_of_ignorance
@sharkb8 @citizenthom @madmike
@madmike yes, a series of events in which conscious actors were making decisions which affected outcomes. So yeah, our current state is affected by other things, but among those things are the decisions that conscious actors made in the past.
@citizenthom Romans 13 = invention by Paul.
@citizenthom you just hit me right in my Christian heart. People are important. I love knowledge but probably shouldn't.
@bronsonkaahui you can join back in
@debateme13 it's full, lol
@sharkb8 @bronsonkaahuiWhat are you guys doing awake?????!!!!
@gigi join us. I'll be up for 15 mins.
what a bunch of cucks
that was fun for my first debate
@phearl3ss1 You should jump back on.
@phearl3ss1 Could you pull your mic closer or maybe put in head phones to hear what the others are saying. I think that would clear up your mic issues.
Objective morality is only possible through a universal moral authority. There might be an objective morality, but it would be physical in nature and would not be universal.
Reality exists. Our perception of reality is subjective
I think you guys need to differentiate between universal and objective
So God is irrational, by definition. I can get behind that.
@ben @the_chosen_one @sigfried @bronsonkaahui If you're gonna talk anarchism you'd better let me in for a minute.
@citizenthom you = Christian anarchist?
There's totally a Fish God. His name is Shark.
Somalia didn't exist without a government. There were multiple groups trying to BE the government.
@citizenthom still want in?
@citizenthom all you
hey no one is online here
For some reason it wouldn't let me tag you guys. These videos are a response to our conversation last night regarding anarcho capitalism.@sigfried @ben @the_chosen_one
@yaz is there any way we can get a video from 7:40 PM to 8:41 PM tonight?
@bronsonkaahui Did you get it?
@bronsonkaahui Let me back in the debate I started dammit! Somoeone step down!
Let me back in
@benmouse42 the case for abolishing patents which I mentioned earlier.https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/09/the-case-for-abolishing-patents-yes-all-of-them/262913/
@benmouse42 here was our conversation regarding whether or not Americans can buy cheaper drugs from Canada:https://newrepublic.com/minutes/139820/cory-bookers-explanation-voting-cheap-prescription-drugs-doesnt-track
Booker eventually backed down from his "safety" bullshit argument and jumped on board.https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/cory-booker-bernie-sanders-drug-re-importation_us_58b5a8ade4b060480e0c2b52The point here is that yes, the government is, in fact, preventing Americans from buying drugs from other countries and this artifiicially increases the prices of those drugs.
What's ironic about this whole thing is that Trump was leading the charge against the pharmaceutical industry on the campaign trail which went completely unnoticed by the media because they were too distracted calling him a racist and saying he couldn't win on these kinds of economic messages that actually do resonate with people.https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/democrats-rush-to-prove-trump-right-on-big-pharma_us_5877edd4e4b0b3c7a7b05c29
@benmouse42 here is a summary on general libertarian theory of how, specifically, the government is the primary reason why medical care is so expensive in the United States. https://mises.org/blog/how-government-regulations-made-healthcare-so-expensive
Here is an example of a free market alternative which has somehow managed to take root WITHIN the current system, which is remarkable. It's the only hospital in the country which openly displays prices (this is probably similar to how you suggested drugs are sold in Australia, where they're not legally allowed to hide the true costs).http://time.com/4649914/why-the-doctor-takes-only-cash/
@logicalreason can you accept my debate challenge?Link: https://www.qallout.com/debate/4551-the-roast-game-is-fact-families-were-eating-their-own-children
@change_my_mind @sharkb8 @liamm @the_chosen_one I draw the line at whatever the government is allowed to have. If you accept that some people should be allowed to have these things then you have no rational basis in which to say they should be limited only to certain people.
I agree, I support unliateral and global nuclear disarmament. So you can't claim the moral high ground here.
@change_my_mind @sharkb8 @liamm @the_chosen_one I don't get how people can defend the idea that ONLY some people should have these weapons. That doesn't make sense to me. Either people should have them or they shouldn't. Because we don't have much evidence demonstrating that governments are more responsible with weapons, on average, than normal people (I can't conceive of something like WW2 happening in the absence of governments), it seems to be a good a priori case against government having these things in the first place.But you accept that. You've ceded that these weapons should exist. Thus, the burden is on you to show they should be limited to those who have them.
@sharkb8 how many FFA holders with machine guns have actually killed people with these weapons compared to government? I can't think of any. Machine guns weren't even illegal till the mid 20th century when you could still order them in a magazine.
@liamm I am ready for war on this discussion ^_^
@liamm "No guns"Would you disarm the government? Yes/no?
@sharkb8 sorry I was outside but listening on my headphones. To clarify I support nuclear disarmament worldwide so it is incorrect to say I think people SHOULD have nuclear weapons. I'm saying that given YOU believe some people should have them (governments), what is the rational basis to say it should be limited to these certain people?
@Sharkb8 I do
@The_chosen_one I'd prefer feminism/SJW over cancer of course, because I'm a father and I not being facetious.
What are we talking about today?
You guys make my liberal heart hurt
@qallout is it possible to reverse the comment display, so new comments are on top for these lounge debates?
lol. I'm surprised you didn't say a Theocracy was better....
@madmike cuz theocracy is shiiiiiit
You guys need less Jesus.
At least one of you isn't a horrible person. lol
all fifty babies would die.
If you put 10,000 babies on an island, all 10,000 would die. They are babies.
This has happened countless time in non human species. This isn't difficult to understand.
Because evolution has been working on humans for a long time. Like, a really long time.
You know the culture shift started 60 years ago, and is only now getting to the military
It's probably better that I'm not in this discussion
Except for all those males in power that sexually harass women. lol
Prolife, Except for all those people that have already been born.
OH GAWD SOMEONE MENTIONED CUSTODY ISSUES. LET THE LAWYER IN.
So @yaz, what is the annual cost we would need to raise in order to keep the site operational?
I don't have a concrete solution to offer but Qallout is full of wonders and I would want this platform to live for ages.
@citizenthom the quality of the debaters also really really improved over the later half of the year, since a lot of competitive debaters joined.
@the_chosen_one is absolutely Qallout's most improved debater.
@sharkb8 It's a tough call between Chandler and Terrance I think.. :-)
@gigi just like our debate :D
@nellyj_misesian didn't realize you were an Austrian.
@sigfried tautology is the word you're looking for.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_egoism
@bronsonkaahui I love the way in that it thinks things through rather than shoving it into a mathematical model. Its makes it easier to teach and more interesting and easier for people to understand. I've met so many people with Econ degrees from UW who can't tell you anything about what they supposed to have learned. Its because they drill the interesting parts out and simplify it to mathematical application (I have a BA in Math)
He says the Austrian Econ Theories have some great contributions so in no way does he simply dismiss it offhandhttp://econfaculty.gmu.edu/bcaplan/whyaust.htmRebuttal Linkshttps://mises.org/blog/caplan-and-responses
Bahhhh fuck it my shitty 4g not good enough I guess Im out.

@turi People come in and go here as they like :-) You might want to leave a message on our Facebook Head-2-Head Group that you are on the lounge and someone will join. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/QallOutH2H/
Democracyy is a curse for india
I can't hear any audio...?
i agree with @alot_like_locke
I support Micheal here!
I think Syria is the new Russia for Bronson
@the_chosen_one in terms of not believing in bullshit? That's issue-independent.
I really thank qallout . I m a student currently appeared the board exam and during my vacation I wanted to do do something creative and interesting .as I liked debating when I knew about this website I came up and it was really helpful and interesting for me and this hangout area is one of my favourite.

@prathit_singh awesome, see you then
Corruption is a root cause of country's failure
Taking about India's education system
Oh there are humans here?
@pseudonym Since we have talked about gender in our debate, I'll take the T from LGBT for an example.Why don't transgender makes sense ?A man who wants to be a women goes to a doctor, cut his penis, set up a vagina like thing, comes out and say now he is a womenDo you think that he is changed to female? Isn't it absurd to think that way
@mani_bharathy That was not my argument. The idea is that she was always female, and is relieving pain with the surgery. We can have a discussion about this at some point if you want.
@pseudonym Sure. I'm always ready for discussion. Ping me whenever you are free
@mani_bharathy If you're on right now, I can talk
Is abortion murder
I think your video froze..
@gigi Are tournaments still a thing?
Why do we say time is money
Hi folks.... I think under the umbrella of secularism.. People are forcing a religion on people who are atheist or have other beliefs. In Asian countries, people in the name of Jehad or Allah are killing masses and spreading animosity.
nobody is ever on here
@jba108 i suggest you engage at the Qallout head-2-head FB Group to check if there is anyone up for louge!
Let's debate about anything ?
Anyone want to chat?
Are you here nellyjmisesean?
I am here.
If BMI's would come to replace the language as our communication tool, a huge part of our culture would die.
Anyone up for convo?
