    I need a cigarette and some rice crispies right now.
    Good grief. Are you even remotely familiar with the protocols of a debate? How does the onus fall upon me to disprove your assertion?

    If I assert that you're a rank simpleton, does the onus fall upon you to disprove my assertion?

    My! What a wonderful debate tactic! Let me try!!!

    Hey everyone! I'm right about everything. Every opinion I've every espoused is absolutely 100% correct, and if you disagree with me even in the slightest, the onus falls upon you to disprove my assertions.

    Haha!!! I'm God now! You hear!? Disprove me! I dare you!

    Judicial Activism is when a judge intentionally decides a particular way in a case because doing so furthers his/her political interests.

    Since Roberts and Alito are behind this rather poor decision (and we all know which party those two assclowns work for) we can rest quite assured that the interests of big business were placed over those of the people.

    Ummm... somehow I doubt the framers of the constitution intended to protect big business special interst groups and their cronies.

    Big business needs to be removed from government. PERIOD.

    v d e
    The burden of proof (Latin: onus probandi) is the obligation to shift the accepted conclusion away from an oppositional opinion to one's own position. The burden of proof may only be fulfilled by evidence.
    The burden of proof is often associated with the Latin maxim semper necessitas probandi incumbit ei qui agit, the best translation of which seems to be: "the necessity of proof always lies with the person who lays charges." This is a statement of a version of the presumption of innocence that underpins the assessment of evidence in some legal systems, and is not a general statement of when one takes on the burden of proof. The burden of proof tends to lie with anyone who is arguing against received wisdom, but does not always, as sometimes the consequences of accepting a statement or the ease of gathering evidence in its defense might alter the burden of proof its proponents shoulder. The burden may also be assigned institutionally.
    He who does not carry the burden of proof carries the benefit of assumption, meaning he needs no evidence to support his claim. Fulfilling the burden of proof effectively captures the benefit of assumption, passing the burden of proof off to another party.
    The burden of proof is an especially important issue in law and science.

    Neither of you have contributed anything worth reading thus far. Just a bunch of unsubstantiated assertions and wild insinuations.

    You're just a troll. You make claims, refuse to back them up, and have the nerve to suggest it's somehow my responsibility to refute assertions you failed to substantiate.

    Either provide evidence in support of your assertions or stop wasting our time.

    Mayhap you should purchase stock in chicken feet exporters. I hear the Chinese like the large feet our chicken growers produce.
