I think it does encourage the nonsense, though obviously I make the mistake of replying to lying idiots all the time myself.
I just try to keep repeating to myself: "You can't talk a #$%$ out of his #$%$ation."
( It would be a real breakthrough in education if you could. )
Why even try to talk them out of it? They're dragging their entire party down the drain while denying they even belong to it. They hammered a few more nails in their coffin today with the Benghazi hearings.
I see three people have already given thumbs-down to "you can't talk a tard out his tardation" in just a few hours.
The tard vote? Or just committed believers in the future of education?
