If John F. Kennedy were alive today, do you think people would listen to his leadership?
No. A living man with a blown-off head would freak everybody out too much.
I am trying to have a serious conversation and you are derailing it into some dumb thing about the semantics of counterfactuals.
I was trying to start a conversation about what we valued about our relationship and you turned it into a criticism of me.
What I value about our relationship is the opportunities it affords me to criticize you.
I like that too.
