Pick one and show me were you set goalposts.
About racism where I said that if someone says one clearly racist statement they should be called a racist while you said you have a goalposts which was no goalposts at all.

Did you define "clearly racist"?

I think so.
I think it was that it was racist in and of itself.

Do I hear some circular logic?

No. Circular reasoning would be that trump is a racist because he meets the goalposts of trump

There are no goalpost for Trump. I have lost all hope of you understanding the concept of goalposts.

I understand it very well. You are the one who takes subjective items and calls them goalposts. That is called not understanding the concept.

Lol. Wrong one. Not that I care much, but if I were pressed to the wall to root for a team, it would be the underdogs.

The DOW is not subjective. You might feel that is not a good indicator and that is OK. But I use it for everyone. You can criticize the goalpost I use but you can't say I don't have any or they are movable. You on the other hand have none.

They are both underdogs. Just much more so with Croatia.

Underdog is a match by match definition. AKA moving goalposts.

Not at all. You need to clarify what you are talking about.

For the tournament they are both underdogs with Croatia the bigger underdog.
For the finals France is the favorite and Croatia is the underdog.
My goalpost don't move.

It was like the earlier match between Croatia and Russia. Two big underdogs fighting it out.

I agree that the Dow is a very good indicator of whether or not am MS method is safe.

It is about as indicative of what effect a president has on the economy. Mainly because a president cannot do much of anything for the economy other than stand back and do no harm.

1. See my edit
2. You are absolutely correct that I will not understand your twisted definition of goalposts. Your using the Dow is at least correct in concept and that at least is a goalpost. The rest is a bunch of squishy trash that you call a goalpost to make it sound good even though it is not.

Someone solicited me to "donate miles" for a school raffle prize. Anyone ever done that? Seems like it'd be a logistical nightmare.
