Next person to use this phrase gets punched in the face. I am so tired of hearing people use this bit of rhetoric to connect two unrelated things. I’m surprised more don’t call bullshit on other people using this. “It’s a slippery slope; if we allow stem cell research we might end up killing people’s babies for their cells”. This is the kind of crap I am talking about.

Sorry. I just thought I should mention this. When you hear this phrase, set your bullshit detectors to “stun”. Let people know what’s wrong with this phrase, and use a ridiculous example to illustrate your point.
