    Good ol’ Ima’s always trying troll someone. I usually just roll my eyes and move on.

    As for the report, I’d like to see their sampling methods. Two of my neighbors are right wing political hacks. One could be medically classified as morbidly obese, and displays his American flag at night with no spot lighting. The other has the beginning of a “beer belly” and “moobs.”

    Interesting. I wonder if any conclusions were drawn as to why.

    I can appreciate that physically strong people would be attracted to gun ownership. People who are born stronger than others do often choose to enjoy their power. You don’t see any “98-pound-weakling” bullies, for example.

    But being into power over people does not make one a conservative. Or does it?

    I’ll wait for the results of the next study.

    On the other hand, just for fun: I remember a study where the experimenter used rabbits. He chopped down trees where there were regular rabbits, and again where the rabbits wore hard hats. He found the rabbits wearing hard hats had more trouble jumping out of the way of falling trees.

    Conclusion: hard hats are a liability in an area where falling objects are possible.

    Stupid? Of course, and intentionally so. Just goes to prove that if you want to, you can find the results you want.

    Here are some broad-brushing over generalizations (but, there is significant amount of truth here):
    The Liberal mantra: “I want Other people to be forced do my priorities and also to pay for them.”
    The Liberal has little experience in being ‘self sufficient’(doing a project on their own), and has lots of experience in manipulating others- for their own good.

    To the same degree the Conservative mantra is
    “If it’ts not me I don’t care”

    I’ve held a variety of positions each of which can be attributed self sufficiency. I take DIY as a way of life at home.

    Yet I also have a view that in a world of immense material riches it is possible to look out for each other.

    Self sufficiency is a virtue and something I myself enjoy. That said a virtue is not something that needs to be forced

    Please explain, using your logic, why crony capitalism was so popular during the Bush administration? Why no bid military contracts were awarded to politically connected corporations in Iraq costing tax payers billions of dollars with little or nothing to show afterwards. Why Red States are largely subsidized by Blue States? Why over the last thirty years dept explodes during Republican administrations? Doesn’t that sort of fly in the face of what you posted, fuzzy thinking indeed.

    There is no litmus-paper test or sorting hat. Liberal and Conservative points of view each have their own intrinsic merits, responding to the perceived needs of their local, state, and national priorities at that point in time. The blind hatred pushing flawed political talking points for policies detrimental to the nation makes any kind of compromise all that more difficult, if not impossible. Troll baiting at the national level.

    Let me guess, the study was done by a conservative think tank.

    You’re only right by your own definition. What I mean by that is that you have a word “liberal”, with which you automatically connect a very large number of views, including but not limited to, 100% taxation of everyone who makes a living, enforced abortion of babies without their parents’ approval, mandatory homosexuality and drug abuse, and the introduction of Sharia into the Bill of Rights.

    Then if anyone agrees with just one of the points or proclaim themselves to be a liberal, you automatically project the remaining viewpoints upon them. And so you are correct in your prejudisms, with the caveat that the people against which you have these prejudisms do not actually exist.

    And it goes both ways, obviously. Conservatives, as we all know, want to tax the poor and give the money to foreign investors. They want to plunder foreign countries regardless of the cost of human lives. And they believe that if you can’t look after yourself, you should die as you are of no use to society.

    Is this you that I’m describing here? Because if it’s not, then you should know that when I’m slandering conservatives, I’m not actually slandering you, I’m slandering the picture that I have created in my mind.

    So be nice.

    “Physically strong” men in the study tended to be more abusive, less inclined to reason, and yes conservative. It didn’t go into all the morbidly obese who are also “leaning right” in politics. It also didn’t address the physically lazy who think they have to have a pickup, ATV, or other motorized vehicle to destroy the planet with, by where they use them and physically cause damage, as well as the side effect of consuming huge amounts of natural resources for their “lifestyle”.

    We used to call them “dumb jocks.”

    Muscles are men’s boobs. They’re supposed to be hot, but the bigger your assets, the stupider people will think you are. That sucks.
