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 206 Views
Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 318 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 240 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 241 Views

I've wondered: - 03/02/2012 09:55:14 PM 318 Views
It bothers the living fuck out of me - 03/02/2012 10:59:01 PM 273 Views
Just wait ten years - 03/02/2012 11:21:25 PM 223 Views
Oh, I still vote Republican. - 04/02/2012 01:49:43 AM 256 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 217 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 308 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 199 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 153 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 105 Views
Tempting... - 03/02/2012 11:17:43 PM 271 Views
I expected no less. - 05/02/2012 12:25:14 AM 311 Views
Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 297 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 300 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 231 Views
I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM 325 Views
Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 181 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 202 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 155 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 331 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 217 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 208 Views
Do you not think it's true then? - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM 310 Views
Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 103 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 240 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 248 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 241 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 226 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 242 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 198 Views
