Stupid arguments

I hate to argue. With a passion.

It doesn’t help that I come from a family of die hard arguers.

In the last decade, I have learned through my collegiate experience the art of arguing. You might think this is a good thing. It is not.

When you argue with people who do not understand nor subscribe to this art, you invite theoretical self-inflicted wounds such as, stabbing your eye with a pencil.

Today, I got into such an argument with my siblings; as I do only when I forget how hazardous it is to my health.

The usual family points making their appearance:

“If Timmy jumped off a bridge, would you still do it?”

“Its just furthering the Liberal Agenda”

“Get rid of the rapists and pedophiles and there won’t be a problem”

“It’s because God isn’t in our schools anymore”

And my personal favorite

“Because I said so”

What were we talking about? The HPV vaccine.

I don’t care what your stance is on any issue. I do however, expect you to have a solid foundation for that stance.

Why do you believe it?

And I expect you to back it up. But do NOT deflect, substitute, or attack your way out of it. THAT garnishes zero respect from me.
