    Here are some good explanations of different fallacies, which is what you're dealing with. See the list on the right, starting with Hasty Generalizations? Go through those to get some good definitions and examples of each type.
    http://www.unc.edu/depts/wcweb/handouts/fallacies.html

    "Either/Or Thinking" = False Dichotomy

    "Post Hoc" = Faulty Cause...

    "Testimonial" = Appeal to Authority

    Also --
    http://www.answers.com/topic/argumentum-ad-populum
    Argumentum ad populum is another term for "bandwagon."

    http://www.answers.com/topic/stereotype

    Let us know what you decide about each of these, and someone here will let you know if you're right or not. Example:
    #1 = Testimonial
    Do you see why?
