Exercise 6 1. The federal budget deficits are destroying this country. Just ask any working stiff; he'll tell you. This could possibly be an ad populum because one is seeking to find truth in popularity (any working stiff). 2. The Occupy Wall Street protestors say they're against greed and corporate corruption. But they're really just a bunch of whiny, unwashed hipsters who are trying to avoid having to get a real job. 3. The National Post says that a proposal to force companies to embrace corporate social responsibility amounts to a denial of the basic principles of the market economy. But you know that's false-after all, it's from the National Post! Ad verecundiam because it's appealing to authority. 4. Geraldo says that students who cheat on exams should not automatically be expelled from school. I can't believe he thinks cheating is such a trivial thing! Straw man. 5. Kelly says that many women who live in predominantly Muslim countries are discriminated against. But how the heck would she know? She's not a Muslim.
