Show me a Libtard, any Libtard, who claims to top that, and I'll show you a lying puddle of sublimating excreta.
oh, i’m dying here
they go on about 0bama’s 133 IQ... really? that’s all you got?
not getting into mensa with that, moron
While I will not deign to contradict your admission that you're a comparative idiot when stood next to a Liberal (you are doubtless the inarguable authority there), I will ask you to please not generalize on behalf of the reat of us, who know such blithering tripe by its proper name.
Look out, everybody! Gargantua’s reachin’ for his thesaurus!
“liberals control all institutions”
Could it be because they refused to get a job?
Was this factored into this university sponsored government-sponsored state-sponsored paid for with our tax money study? Probably not.
There's a reason why he shuns "Q & A" press conferences and un-aided speaking appearances, and it is not because he's such an intellectual leviathan. The macacque is as dumb as a box of rocks, and he probably needs help putting his shoes on the right feet in the morning.
5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed
unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give
thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me;
and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
“I think its also important to remember that education and intelligence are not necessarily identical.”
That’s what I said baby! What do you think wisdom is? Your reading comprehension skills are poor.
Let's begin with the Psychological Association itself, which may be the biggest scam ever pulled on the American people and let's begin with Freud, who was using cocaine when he fantasized his crazy theories. I remember when psychiatrist's could hardly make a living..Then, WA-LA, health care insurance began to pay for that kind of treatment. From that point on, the whole movement took off and has been, probably the single greatest influence for harm to this society of any source. Infinity cannot compute the resources poured down that black hole. Anyone who has ever worked with “the worried well” will tell you that some of the situational reactions people suffer are normal for the circumstances and will heal in time. There may be great benefit in working through a grief reaction to life the natural way. In cases of the more serious mental afflictions, medication has been the major help and those were developed by very smart scientists in research labs, and, from their work ethic, I would guess most of them to be conservative. I would like to see a study which assesses the mental stability of all the psychological “experts” as a whole. I am betting you would find the biggest collection of nuts any society could possibly produce. Toss Mr. Kanazawa’s study into the trash because it reeks with politics and propaganda, and, be very wary, as I am sure you are, of anything coming out of the "Psychological Association."
Joining Mensa is the real disqualifier :).
I think the guy is right. Sorry, but in my experience, its true. Make a list of the great minds of our time, the true intellectuals, and youll be forced to agree.
Hayek, Lord Monckton, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams?
Of course, being intelligent doesnt make a person right. It simply means they are better at reasoning.
I am an engineer. Going through the training that an engineer must gives you the ability to think clearly and reason.
I have found that most liberals, when you sound them out on their positions, employ faulty reasoning almost always.
Of course, when you find a liberal engineer (I work with a couple) you have to question how someone with that training could believe the way they do. The cognitive dissonance must be something terrible.
American liberals (conservatives) of the Rush Limbaugh/Sarah Palin/NASCAR variety tend to be suspicious of reasoning, and of educated people. Its a cultural thing. This is not a criticism; its an observation.
Disagree here also. They disagree with pointy headed stupidity gussied up as "reasoning" (to use your words) that doesn't square with their innate common sense. There's nothing "stupid" about that.
Maybe they are smart. Those "private resouces" the want to give to others do not belong to them. But then "smart" isn't the correct word is it? A criminal self-serving mentality better describes their mindset.
If liberals are so intelligent, why aren’t they earning as much as athletes who can scarcely vocalize? All those smart libs should have rigged the system to ensure that they are paid as much as A-Rod or Kobe, but instead, they are in mediocre university or government jobs. They never get the beautiful women.
They compensate for their lack of good looks or physical ability or the ability to succeed in business by convincing each other how much more intelligent they are than the rest of the population. Sometimes they fool enough people to get elected to government offices where they can wield power and screw up the country, big time. That’s where we are today.
“Perhaps someday a true American, intellectual Conservatism will rise.”
So, you missed that whole Founding Fathers thing ...eh.
Liberal thinkers are the antithesis of thinking, they are intellectually masturbating morons.
...apart from a few areas in life (such as business) where countervailing circumstances may prevail...”
Oh yeah, this little thing called “business.” That unimportant side note that most of spend about third of our lives doing. We can discard that consideration entirely.
That argument supposes that all subjects have attended liberal universities for the requisite brain-washing and IQ measurement.
The real world is populated with high IQ problem solvers, leaders and innovaters who never set foot in the factories that foster fools who are trained to *feel* superior, but ain’t;).
