Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Conservatism

Bigot-Cons

It's driven by IQ. The Sage of Mt. Airy draws a conclusion:

Check out this headline and story: "Intelligence Study Links Low I.Q. To Prejudice, Racism, Conservatism"

It's not my fault then, correct?

So where do I go to get my subsidy started? Who do I see about my government grant? Does this mean they'll forgive my mortgage? Shouldn't there be a tax break? Where's the block on this form to mark "Low I.Q."? How much more time will I get to take the exam? The "passing" score's lower, right? Ain't I entitled to a parking space? When will the first check arrive? Huh? When? I got my rights you know?

While you're at his site, read the Sage's thoughts on vigilante movies--really movies about the founding and preservation of regimes, I would say.

Hey Ken:

Please let me know when you find out where to go to get your subsidy started so I can join in on it.

Also, if someone posting on this board believes that not getting a link working properly is a sign of a low IQ, what do they think when the Most Intelligent President ever cannot pronouce the word "corpsman" correctly or even read his own teleprompter correctly?

What I think is funny is how the Left takes IQ deadly seriously...unless you're black, in which case it's culturally biased and bigoted. These people and their double-standards -- either they are irredeemably evil, or they themselves are stupid.

It's also interesting how Righists could amass so much cash, dominate Wall Street, and run the military-industrial complex while being so very stupid. In short, these psychological studies that come out periodically (demonstrating alternatively that we are either stupid, authoritarian, or both) don't jibe well with reality. The fact is, there are plenty of really stupid people to go around (alas), and stupidity knows no ideological borders.

Now I think I'll go read this latest abomination just to see where they f...ed it up. I've never read one of these ideologically-driven bits of "research" yet that could really hold water.

I think that he might be doing such things for the same (but reversed) reason that you cite for loading your comments here at NLT with grammar and spelling errors: He's doing it to get conservatives' panties in a wad (or would that be wads? Oh, who cares...).

But seriously, you're quite right, that's trivial stuff. I'm sure you would be the voice of reason if an NLT blogger latched on to some trivial item like that as if it were indicative of something significant and serious.

Redwald:

Yes, Redwald, it's the Left that takes it so seriously. Like that famous treatise from the Left, The Bell Curve:

http://www.slate.com/articles/briefing/articles/1997/01/the_bell_curve_flattened.single.html

That silly claim aside, your comment still had one of your most truthiest statements yet:

"The fact is, there are plenty of really stupid people to go around (alas), and stupidity knows no ideological borders."

That much we can agree on.

I load up the board with spelling and grammars errors to get your panties in a wad - Works every time. I don't care whether someone on a board misspells or has grammar errors. It is not really a sign of a high IQ - it just a sign of bad typing. Most of us engineer types like me don't give a crap about spelling and grammar. It is not really a top priority in performing my job.

The real problem here Pumpkin is that when you find a post here loaded with facts that you are unable to refute, then you lower yourself to picking on spelling, grammar, IQ issues or you load us up on links from youtube and huffpost.

Pumpkin you and your like fill us with the notion that Obama is the most intelligent President ever, and somehow or another President Crackpot just keeps disproving that fact. It must suck to be you.
