    Oh really? By that definition, is a person who isn't in power corrupt? Like a child who goes to grade school?

    About damn time.

    So does this come down to how accurate it is to apply "Hillary is corrupt" as a statement? I think the statement itself is too broad. Wai mentioned this earlier. What specific thing do you think makes Hillary corrupt that distinguishes her from the average politician or the average person? There isn't much meat to this whole discussion if that piece isn't going to be expanded on.

    Edit
    The reason for the coloring is sometimes I think people should keep their post lean as possible when they find the other making a big deal about the superficial part. No matter how much you think the other is the one at fault, they will eventually look foolish if you are direct about the central point (blue) and nothing else. If you add in this other stuff, it can be a continuous circle of arguing each others recollections and calling each other out instead of the argument itself (red).

    Answered earlier. This is a stupid diversion from the discussion about whether Clinton is corrupt. Surely you know that you're not fooling anyone, don't you?

    Yeah, that's the point that we're really discussing, but he's so bad at arguing that he still hasn't even gotten to the starting line, and I'm not confident that he'll ever find it.

    No, you did NOT answer. You said "everyone is corrupt" by that definition. And I'm asking you right now, does that mean a person who isn't in power can be corrupt?

    You're stuck and you know it.

    I suspect his self awareness is even lower than we give him credit for. And, since we don't give him any credit at all, he's gotta be in rancid full-of-diapers-and-tubes-of-spoiled-hamburger-in-August dumpster fire territory.

    No, you're stuck and your failure-mode is to try to talk around it to other people and posture yourself, because I've done this to you many times. You will not be ducking the question or trying to talk past it. You didn't know that was a valid definition and you ended up in a bad position, which is why you ran away to begin with, and you tried to act like you didn't and you just got dragged back into the same spot.

    Why don't you just admit that I can establish she's corrupt by that definition?

    (Note: I've been saying "corrupt" but using the definition of "corruption," so I should have been saying the second word since that's what I mean and "corruption" was the original word in question, Jack could have actually pointed this out and used the definition of corrupt instead, but he's not even following the point that well so I noticed a nitpicky flaw in my own argument and he didn't)

    Here Jack, let me help you out, I actually said "corrupt" instead of "corruption," so you can try to distract from the point and nitpick it by then using the definition of corrupt instead of corruption. It's another dishonest argument, but at least it would look like you found something clever.

    @EGarrett

    This is all revolving around definition. Have you tied a specific event Clinton has done to tie it to your definition? I think this would get the ball rolling and possibly in time fix the disagreement on the way each of you are defining the term.
