I admit, I mocked someone. It’s just that sometimes Trump supporters make it SO easy to mock them to begin with. I was “debating” with someone who calls themselves a writer in their Bio. Yet, they couldn’t understand that very basics of a debate.
We started to “debate” about this…
Now according to Phillips “writer” friend. Wajahat didn’t win the debate because he wasn’t specific enough. Which I’m not sure which part is not specific enough. But this is where it takes another turn. Because if Phillips writer friend had actually read the thread, he would actually understand that Phillips responded to a question about Trumps corruption with this “whataboutism”.
Wajahat actual question was “How are the complicit Republicans going to explain Trumps corruption and the general corruption of the GOP party to their children”. That was the response Phillip gave. Yet, it had nothing to do with Trump? So not sure why writer friend was saying, that Phillip gave a good debate because he was being specific, whereas Wajahet wasn’t?
- Phillip was not specific with Trump, which was what the original question was about.
- . You don’t have to give long speeches for it to be a long debate. Sometimes, simple works.
- Also, how is Wajahat wrong?
So the mocking came about because, as I, so kindly pointed. Just because you use long words, doesn’t make you a writer. A writer actually knows what words means. I had to explain “whataboutisms” to him. I asked him does he understand what the word “debate” means?
I have seen a lot of people saying that their Democratic candidate isn’t getting enough talking time, mainly Yang and Tulsi “gangs.” Here’s the thing though, what do they do to deserve the time? They’re not top candidates, they are right at the bottom. At this point, I’m still surprised that they’re trying to run at this point.
If you are a Yang Gang or Tulsi Gang, what do you think they have to offer that the others don’t? I’m not sure what they have. There are a lot of worthy candidates out there, what is it about these two, that make go crazy? I don’t want to hear anything derogatory towards other Candidates.
Just what they can offer, that others cannot.
Trump supporters suddenly being experts on what a good debater is…You know the ones who voted this guy in…

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
I prefer pen, I will usually only use a pencil in a emergency. For example, if I’m on the phone and I need something to write with. Also if I’m writing on something that I shouldn’t be writing on, but it’s the only piece of paper around. Then I can erase it later.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
Good question! I love to dance everywhere anyway. I think though I’d love to be an amazing singer, because I can make more a career from it. I love dancing and I was a ballet dancer for a long time, but the dancing world is SO competitive and you can only do it for so long. Unless of course something goes wrong with your vocal nodules I suppose.
If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?
Oh, probably some ancient thing. Who was to really blame for Cleopatra’s downfall…Mainly because that was my big project on my senior year and I got a really good grade for it,lol
What are you a “natural” at doing?
This is going to sound really “lame”. I am naturally at being me =D
Every year 26th of January is Australia’s Australia Day and since I am a proud Australian, I am celebrating the best way that I can without actually going out anywhere.

It probably may came a shock to little, especially with all that’s been happening this past year, that there is a huge debate in Australia right now and whether or not we should change the date. This is because the Indigenous people of Australia do not see it as a day that is celebratory, but rather they call it “”Invasion Day” and I do not blame them for it at all. You see Australia Day is celebrated on the 26th because, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ship, in Port Jackson, New South Wales. It wasn’t actually until 1901 that it was called “Australia Day”. Before that it had various names such as: “Anniversary Day”, “Foundation Day”, and “ANA Day”
For one I don’t mind the date being changed, just as long as it still is within Summer…Too me beaches and Summer are just “Australian”. I even heard a name for the new day that I liked “The Spirit of Australia”…I don’t know, it just had a ring for me.
However I feel especially proud to be an Australian today. Apart from the hard right hater type folks, I feel very safe here. I am actually more frightened of my Aussies who are all “Send them back” types, mainly because they inflict and aggravate SO much hate and fear, that I feel more unsafe to be around a group of them than any of our modern “invaders”. They tend to be the ones who cause more fights, though all we mainly hear about the people they want to send people back…Even if they are just as “naturally” Australian as they are…It’s aggravating.
Someone should remind them of their Australia National Anthem:
In my little “town” (it’s South Australia main city) today is “Adelaide Cup” day. To break it down, instead of breaking it down into tinier stories. It’s a Public Holiday in South Australia (YAY) but it’s also the day in South Australia where our fanciest of the fanciest and the richest of the richest come out and take a bet on some horses.
The Adelaide Cup always takes place on the second Monday in March and it’s first run was in 1864. The first race usually takes places around lunch time and then continues at roughly 40 minute intervals for the rest of the afternoon/day.
Now this day does cause a lot of controversy, as you can probably imagine. That constant battle between “making” horses run and what can sometimes happen after the races. Also that eternal battle of do the horses really want to race? It’s also causes that big controversy of people needing to shop for everything in the whole supermarket, just in case…just in case, on that one public holiday day they run out of…stuff,lol
So readers, what do you think of racing? Horse racing or otherwise? Personally I am enthralled by car-racing, even though I don’t drive!
*If you do place a bet today, do so, responsibly*.
If you were on a debate team, what general subject would you relish debating?
Something to do with popular culture I think, I am one of those people who doesn’t believe in myself enough to know what I know…If that makes sense,lol
What’s your strongest sense?
Listening, definitely listening. Even when it’s not a topic that I’m interested in. Everyone is always going on about how I’m a great listener. Hey, I try my best. I don’t think that we listen enough these days. I don’t mean either, actually listening with our ears, but listening to what people are NOT saying as well.
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Oh this is a good one! I actually really had to think about this one…Oh I know! It’s a quote my Gran wrote about me “A rare as the Unicorn, is the Maiden of fair spirit”.
