    the right says that hypothetically the health bill could have been used to fund abortions. Never you mind that there are a myriad of laws that forbid the use of federal funds towards abortion.

    Another example,

    left wing truthers who don't want to be recognized as such say that it is hypothetically possible that the government flew missiles into the Pentagon. Never you mind the amount of information that shows the opposite.

    See what 'hypothetical' really means? I think the fact that at every election we hear about the big bad government coming to take away your guns from the NRA simply confirms just how 'hypothetical' this scenario is in the mind of gun owners. Case and point:

    In this case I do not think that was intended at all. The thread has all the seriousness of a zombie apocalypse thread.

    I agree. It is a joke of a thread. But to some people it is far more plausible that a government could come and take away guns than for a government to have the support of its military to establish an autocracy or a junta etc.

    Showing you how 'hypothetical' it is in the mind of a large percentage of gun owners.

    No, this is what hypothetical really means:
    Main Entry: hy·po·thet·i·cal
    Pronunciation: \ˌhī-pə-ˈthe-ti-kəl\
    Function: adjective
    Date: 1588

    : being or involving a hypothesis : conjectural <hypothetical arguments> <a hypothetical situation>

    hypothetical noun

    hy·po·thet·i·cal·ly \-ti-k(ə-)lē\ adverb
    Your rant is a weak, delusional effort to build a straw man and a pretty lame attempt at trolling.

    Dismissed.

    You smurfing has stepped up a notch. Finish it off with a quote by Ron Paul and you'll be set.

    Feds check in, but they never check out. I need a cheap unskilled work force as much as the next guy.
