Try arguing with that!!!

That is a thinly veiled challenge and poor attempt at double reverse psychology. You want me to believe your provocation is motivated by convincing me, in spite of words to the contrary, you really don't want me to engage you in argument. The fact of the matter is you really do want me to argue with you. Well, I refuse!

Ways to argue while agreeing:

1. Damning with faint praise
2. Agree with the premise, and then assert so many qualifiers that the original premise becomes a practical impossibility.
3. The political agreement: nod and smile at the person and then answer a totally different question than the one that was posed.
4. Anytime a woman agrees by saying "Fine!"

So yes, I agree with you.

Mine is only ever largest in December when I grow it out for the full Santa effect, but even then there are usually beards bigger than mine, just not as many.

Good thing I don't suffer from follicle envy!

As in, the answer might have been...........

It's Donald Trump, not Donald Stump?

The long and short of 'it'... really, either way, they are discussing, after all, a prick...

I have one simple rule in that regard— only vote for the incumbent party if you want more of the same. If you vote for the opposition party, it may be better or it may be worse in the long run, but at least it will be different!

Yup. Got it. But since we're supposed to "shorten" our discussion of politics here, I thought I would "limit" my comments, and not "lengthen" anything unnecessarily.

Which is exactly why I named no names. "Incumbent" and "Opposition" can apply to any election, anywhere, anytime, and so is discussion a personal philosophy about politics, rather than discussing politics directly.

Or are we not supposed to philosophize, either?
