In response to the "debate" post anonymous asked: "Did you just call us stupid?"

No, I am not calling you stupid, Mr./Ms. Anonymous (if that is your real name).

I am simply pointing out that many times when debating anything from social security reform, to American hegemony, to how much wood could a woodchuck chuck, sometimes the opposition willfully misunderstands. It's a rhetorial/logical fallacy, sometimes it is intentional, and sometimes it is ignorance.

Experts say a woodchuck moves about 700 pounds of dirt when building a burrow. Therefore, in using the same amount of time and effort, a woodchuck could chuck approximately 700 pounds of wood ... if he could chuck wood.
