    Well, given that liberals tend to trust that the powers that be have Joe Q's best interests at heart, and conservatives tend to believe that you shouldn't trust anyone but yourself... I wouldn't expect otherwise.

    What it does say is that a conservative is much more likely to crack under pressure.

    Yeah science is BS when you don't like what it says.
  11. randomJACKASS The Controversial One established April 2002 Banned

    Well by God if Fox News says it you know it has to be true!
  12. randomJACKASS The Controversial One established April 2002 Banned

    So much for the notion of all men being created equal!

    The most important point in all of this is:

    “For the species to survive, you need both,”

    I keep seeing the word "fear".

    Seeing how things get discussed, I'd have to translate that into observational knowledge. Since conservatives have sen the past & don't wish to repeat the mistakes.

    If you're insinuating I don't like what it says, your off.
    I couldn't care much less.

    science is the second part. history should be the first part.
    on this subject.

    Did you write that fantasy? Where is the source? You know it is pure fantasy, fiction, and wishful thinking don't you? It has the barest smidgen of truth in it, perhaps enough to call it satire optimistically, but it is not even close to reality.

    in humor we see many underlying cultural assumptions.

    "Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting, learned how to live off conservatives by showing up for the BBQs every night and doing women's work like sewing, fetching and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the liberal movement. Later, some of the liberals actually became women."

    because, um, you know, women are weak. right?
