note: "social conservatives", not "fiscal conservatives" Tom Send a noteboard - 03/02/2012 09:37:18 PM
Social conservatism may be linked to lower IQ in some cases, but I think it's probably unfair to say that there is no merit to social conservatism as a result. I'm not a social conservative, but it doesn't mean they can't have compelling arguments.

As for fiscal conservatism, the article says nothing about it, but certainly the more fiscally conservative one tends to be, the more wealthy one tends to be...
Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius, The Secret History

I agree. - 03/02/2012 10:48:25 PM 203 Views
Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 309 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 235 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 237 Views

I've wondered: - 03/02/2012 09:55:14 PM 314 Views
It bothers the living fuck out of me - 03/02/2012 10:59:01 PM 268 Views
Just wait ten years - 03/02/2012 11:21:25 PM 217 Views
Oh, I still vote Republican. - 04/02/2012 01:49:43 AM 253 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 215 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 298 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 194 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 147 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 97 Views
Tempting... - 03/02/2012 11:17:43 PM 263 Views
I expected no less. - 05/02/2012 12:25:14 AM 302 Views
Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 285 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 291 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 225 Views
I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM 319 Views
Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 176 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 197 Views
Yes. It is not very likely, though, since no measurement we have done so far indicates that it is so - 05/02/2012 02:28:18 PM 151 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 322 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 213 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 207 Views
Do you not think it's true then? - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM 302 Views
Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 100 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 230 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 245 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 237 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 223 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 236 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 194 Views
