You wingers are infectious

Hear or read something enough and danged if it doesn’t stick.

In conversation with a Trump hater who brought up separating little kids from their parents and I reflexively said “be careful with that ‘cause Obama did it too!”.

Turns out:

It's just funny that you keep tripping over yourself with each new propoganda piece.

A few other "Fact Check's" say Obama did separate kids from parents on a smaller scale, so I guess you are right when you said you read NPR enough times, you believe it.

 

Now, I don't think either President was responsible for separating kids from parents, I blame the parents.  If my choice is separating me from my kid or staying in Mexico, I'm staying with my kid.

Re: You wingers are infectious

That ties into a discussion I heard on radio this aft.

They were talking about the Carbon tax that has just begun in parts of Canada that have no plan to reduce CO2 output.

The comment was that showing the people against it more facts would sway them but the other person said it has been proven that facts do not work very well with people who just believe the opposite.

They ignore the facts and make excuses to keep believing what they want to just believe.

 

Look at the replies you have so far.

Re: You wingers are infectious

Sorry, no need to even look it up again, but the Obama administration may not have had a POLICY of separating children from their adults at the border, although they DID actually do so.

 

And, on the carbon  tax issue -- that does not itself solve any problems, it only provides a tax disincentive to those who produce carbon emissions.  While tax incentives/disincentives do appear to have an impact over time, it has much less and slower impact on those things that are more price inelastic.  In other words, a carbon tax is mostly a grab for money, and it's effectiveness depends greatly on how that money is used.
