Don't be ridiculous.

I don't have ANY Bernie signs or any other signs) but Bernie has more than he needs, so we should get 70% of Bernie's signs.

To be fair, once we divided 70% of the signs by 330,000,000, it would be doubtful of us would get a whole sign, or even enough of a sign to be good for anything.

Well, that's socialism for you...

I'm afraid I can't do that Marcus. How do I know you won't try to eat me if I act serious?

I would like to donate my signs to Mexico to feel like a good person.

I'm willing to risk it to get enough sign to build a home for microbes. I'm that Socialisty. I provide for even the invisible ones on our planet. If the microbe could possibly make everyone sick, it doesn't matter. You can't judge all microbes in a box like that...

Well, that's socialism for you...

Indeed.

Explain to us how you reached that conclusion, given that he didn't get elected in the primaries.

we should get 70% of Bernie's signs.

Interestingly, you began by talking about not being ridiculous, then dove right into ridiculousness with a headfirst plunge.

Well, that's socialism for you

No it isn't socialism. It's a straw man argument manufactured by a corrupt capitalist who is trying to misrepresent socialism in the most ridiculous way possible.

So explain to us what socialism is, so we know where you've moved the goalposts to this week.

I request this because you have rejected the definition from the dictionary when I have presented it in the past.

Yes, yet you seem to have missed the point entirely.

Had you understood what you were reading, what you would have written is "Ironically, you began by talking about not being ridiculous, then dove right into ridiculousness with a headfirst plunge."

Try to keep up.

We started with a prompt that was already ridiculous. I stated that. Then, instead of making the expected less ridiculous proposition, I followed it up with an even more ridiculous proposition. This dual contradiction (reasonable vice unreasonable, and less vice more ridiculous) is the clear signal that I was making an ironic statement.

I then explained how the statements were ridiculous, and tied it back to the point of the prompt, which was the unreasonable nature of Sanders' socialist intentions. My statements expanded the point to encompass the economic disaster that socialism brings to any society on which it is imposed.

The term for that collection of statements is satire.

"Identify irony", and "recognize and interpret satire" are standard aspects of the high school English Language Arts curriculum in most school districts in the US, although it is not unusual to begin introducing the concepts in the 7th or 8th grade.

And we shouldn't expect that from a conservative? All the voter fraud that's showing up (that they said was happening) actually WAS! They just didn't admit that THEY were doing it … that's how they KNEW! Tearing up Bernie's signs would be a minimal action from a proud "patriotic" conservative. After all, Trumpy SAID the system was "rigged". That's how he WON! Bront, you're HIS type of guy! Maybe a cabinet position is in your future? Do you have a spare billion or so?? No? Well, then, maybe you need a pardon?? He LOVES loyalty. ;-)

Never tried "weed", donuts or otherwise. Never smoked cigarettes (beyond "trying"), never liked the things. My wife smoked for about 15 years after I married her (and before). Bourbon and sex are my vices ….. and I've cut down on them. Still do donuts with my car though … when my wife's not with me. ;-)
