You cannot fix stupid

Postby Joseph Patrick » Mon Aug 31, 2020 6:32 pm

From Gerry Milligan..., I know that Steve Scalise was wounded some time back and am wondering if the gunshot or ensuing hospitalization scrambled his brain. How did he think that he could get away with manipulating Ady Barkan's interaction with Joe Biden? You talk about stupid (and unethical); Scalise wins the prize for stupidity. Kevin McCarthy probably needs to reign in republican house members who embarrass citizens of the USA: Steven Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, and now Steve Scalise. Just remember "YOU CANNOT FIX STUPID; BUT GIVEN ENOUGH VALIUM WILL RENDER THEM COMATOSE."
When Bill Clinton lied, no one died...

Sadly, anyone with basic software can manipulate pictures and videos meaning that neither of them is reliable evidence for anything unless you have human witnesses. How sad! For members of Congress to do so means that truth is no longer needed in its sacred halls.

Agreed Dave. It has gotten pretty easy to fake video. I've done enough video editing in the last six months that, with some practice, I bet I could do it myself.

I'm already sick of the attack videos on candidates.
