Not to mention Lan didn't have the advantage of the Warder Bond when he fought the Darkfriend. Lan admits the DF was better then he was. But I would agree that in the 20 years since Lan skill has improved a lot. I would say now Lan weakness would be that he is starting to get to the age where his speed and reflexes would start to slow, so his main weakness is probably age.
"Sometimes there's this concept of emergency help/funds/snap. "
Again why would you give aid to an able bodied person between 18 and 49 who is not working and not trying to find a job?
"The whole not-working able bodied on food stamps is generally what conservatives act like every recipient is."
Actually I thought that the conservative stereotype of a SNAP recepient was the welfare mother who has 6 kids from six different fathers none of which bothered to marry her or actively support their children.
"Used the Qualifier "Everyone" which more strongly denotes "All" "Every", where as mine just used "People" which can broadly mean anything, from some, all, most, whatever.
Sorry but my logic 101 professor taught me that when you make a general statement about a group you are logicly deeemed to be talking about the entire group unless otherwise specified. So when you say "people which" you can be inferred to be talking about all such people.
Again both statements were overbroad since some people who are on it do not want to get off it and some people who are on it do not love being on it.
"Did you miss the part where if you're getting the maximum benefit and work less hours, you actually get less money as if you earned more?
The part where you can only get it for 3 months, every 3 years as an able bodied adult with no children?"
I was referencing the program condition that if you go from working 20 hours to 40 the stipend gets cut in half.
"But, given your response, this clearly means you're part of the crowd who doesn't want to help Ted, because Ted and his Family look too poor,"
Actually being a somewhat reasonable person I would mind giving aid if Ted and his family did not look at least somewhat poor. Also I think you intentionally misintrept what some conservatives say about the poor. People do not object that the poor look poor. We object to giving aid to people who do not clean themselves and their clothes and make themselves as presentable as possible. Small clue when you go for a job interview even for a menial job you dress cleanly and make sure you do yourself are clean. Impressions count. In the case of poor people who get aid I expect them to attempt to look clean (I am not talking about the homeless) and might find it somewhat hard to fathom if they are dressed as well or better then myself.
Well being dead at the beginning doesn't mean much when a PR cuts the joke phase out of the game. When every post counts you dig in right away.
What problem do you have with the quality? You explained your side. I understand why you did what you did.
Do you get my pov? Why I thought it was weird to just up and drop the claim when it got a little attention. Why it bothered me that you just blew me off.
How is this consistent with your opinion that such people be barred from private speaking events?
It sounds to me like you can't make up your mind when a private institution should flex it's right to react to speech and when it should. You apply your opinion arbitrarily based on your feeling at the time not on a principal.
