For example, the post I just quoted:
1. You say I made a claim without evidence. Reality: I asked a question and asked if you had ever investigated the possibiity.
2. The "claim" involved the impact of unions on the quality, cost, and speed of infrastructure construction (it was following on from the good, fast, and cheap discussion that led to it). What was your response? Worker safety!! WTF? That had virtually nothing to do with the previous line of discussion, but you see it as a rebuttal to a claim that was never made. Your game of whack-a-mole propaganda is exhausting and I'm bored with it.
Which could be summed up as an inability to communicate. This includes overwhelming with data.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
