Not at all. It is like asking the score of the game.

I am not talking about the amount you are betting. I am talking about the amount you are winning or losing. That is what matters. At the end of each post tell us your current status, e.g. "up $5.00" or "down $1,500.00."

And soon the ACC will be doing the same thing.

They will be showing FSU v Clemson, Va Tech v UVa, and (gag me) Shpitt v Sorrycuse.

And the Big XII will be showing SQUAT!!!


Is anybody watching?

Sorry lemms, some of us know and understand the tactics involved.


I don't know where Cliff got that definition, but it is inaccurate. I am using the traditional definitions of comparing and contrasting. He isn't. These definitions are older than we are.

The problem with trying to argue with you neo cons us (1) you won't accept facts as facts and (2) you don't try to educate yourselves before giving an opinion. You think you are entitled to your opinion even when it is absolutely 100% wrong, and provably so.


Dictionary.com

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/compare

Here you go tiger....bitch at them. Pretty ripe assuming you know more than the preeminent dictionary on line.

But I expected no less.

You know. Just food for thought for you....Sometimes things change. Maybe you need to change with them. If you are using a dictionary older than we are.....spring for a newer one. Then you will look less like an ass. LOL

EDIT: By the way you will notice that definition 6 is TO DIFFER in quality. Lot of use of difference in this set of definitions.



How many dictionaries did you go through to find one that supported your argument? I would say Webster's Dictionary is a better one, and the first definition it provides is "to say that (something) is similar to something else."

Webster's Dictionary Definition of Compare

Moreover, Webster's also defines "compare and contrast" to mean "to note what is similar and different about (two or more things)."

Webster's Dictionary Definition of Compare and Contrast

You repeatedly get into arguments with people about the meaning of words by relying on taking the meaning of the word in a different context. The word comparison has different meanings depending on the context. The differences are slight, or subtle, but they are different. Of course people use the word in every day conversation to mean showing differences or likenesses. But, in the context of argument, the word has a more specific meaning. Compare means to show likenesses, and contrast means to show differences. I didn't just make this up, and it isn't an outdated notion. Words have different meanings depending on the context. Again, all anybody needs to do is google "compare and contrast" and they will see what the words mean in the context of formulating an argument, which is exactly the context in which we are using them. I really don't want to continue arguing with you about something that is this obvious. It is like arguing about whether the sky is blue. If you want to remain ignorant about comparing and contrasting, feel free.


Your definition says the same thing as my definition! What a jackass.

I will try to slow this idiocy down for you so that even YOU can understand it.

I stated that you COMPARED two things. You stated you didn't. I have showed where I got the definition of MY word and then you proceed to tell me I am wrong about my word. I show you said definition of MY word. Then you show a dumbass definition that has MY DEFINITION in it.

It takes a reall Ahole to tell people that THEIR word is wrong. I speak the English language quite well. While you may wish you were correct. It is, after all MY STATEMENT so I think I am entitled to MY DEFINITION of the word.

I don't really give a rats ass what the difference between contrast and compare is: compare is BY YOUR HOLY MERRIAM WEBSTER'S definition:

to look at (two or more things) closely in order to see what is similar or different about them or in order to decide which one is better

Expand your horizon's look at a definition that is further down the list than number one.

EDIT: By the way, my definition was the first one. A more complete definition with MANY more entries than your Webster's but I am sure when you were manning the inkwells in your school Webster's was the cat's meow of dictionaries. Hell Merriam Webster probably hand wrote the forward.


I am done. I don't have the time to argue with an outright liar. If the argument means that much to you that you resort to that, you have a problem. By the way, we can all read the definitions as well as the entire thread to see you just keep making **** up.

No. Every crime has specific factual elements that the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt. For most crimes, one of those elements is the mental state of the accused, which is also called the mens rea. The crimes related to mishandling confidential information require either willful or intentional conduct. Showing carelessness isn't sufficient to prove the crime. That is what the FBI Director was explaining.

What you describe is some kind of vehicular manslaughter, which typically involves driving a vehicle negligently or unlawfully that results in the death of another. Driving under the influence is operating unlawfully. It is also a strict liability crime, meaning that it doesn't matter what your mental state is. You cannot compare a strict liability crime to other crimes for purposes of discussing the mental state required because they have none.

As I'm sure everyone knows by now FBI Dir Comey recommended not to indict The Crooked Liar, citing no evidence of intent. I believe Comey is a straight shooter and I personally accept his findings fwiw.

He was very hard on her and made it clear (at least to me) that any career govt employee would have been heavily sanctioned or fired for the same actions. But in this case there are no remedies for the govt to bring against her except criminal indictment, which he does not feel is appropriate. He destroyed her narrative about the entire stupidity and said her and her staff were extremely careless with sensitive national security and classified documents.

So there you have it. Not criminal but reckless, careless, incompetent and dishonest.


That is a good analysis if the FBI Dorector's statement.

The FBI Director is a Republican and a former prosecutor.

Yep. The easier explanation is that "the left" has been trying to redefine the words compare and contrast for decades so that I could win this argument. This is a much simpler explanation than you and Cliff are wrong.
