Study: Republicans Are Physically Stronger

Physically strong men are more likely to hold Republican views, while weaker men are prone to support liberal ideas such as redistribution of wealth, a new study finds.

The research, published in the journal Psychological Science, found that men's upper-body strength predicts their political opinions, a link, researchers believe, may be a reflection of psychological traits that evolved in response to early ancestral environments when decisions about the distribution of resources came down to shows of physical strength.

"While many think of politics as a modern phenomenon, it has — in a sense — always been with our species," said Professor Michael Bang Petersen, one of the study's authors.

The researchers collected data on bicep size, socioeconomic status, and support for economic redistribution from hundreds of people in the United States, Argentina, and Denmark.

The findings revealed that wealthy men with high upper-body strength were less likely to support redistribution, while less wealthy men of the same strength were more likely to support it. At the same time, weaker men, wealthy or not, were less likely to support their own self-interest.

"Despite the fact that the United States, Denmark, and Argentina have very different welfare systems, we still see that — at the psychological level — individuals reason about welfare redistribution in the same way. In all three countries, physically strong males consistently pursue the self-interested position on redistribution," Petersen said.

Each day I have to wonder what any of the people in the Obama admin do? Anytime something goes wrong, it happens often, the right is blamed and then its a new day. I heard today some flake saying the irs. screwing the private citizens in this nation were Bush folks doing all they can to make the dear leader look bad. Poor baby, he looks bad and the so called Pres should blame the man in the mirror. This is like a bad movie. Too bad its real people that Obama and some of his supporters dismiss.
The other day comedians were discussed. Forgot to mention that Phil Foster invented the crazy buddy routine, where the buddy is to blame for everything. and Freddie Prinze had his own in his act 'My Man, Nat.' I only bring this up because it seems that EVERYBODY is barry's crazy friend. Any time something goes wrong, barry brings out another person to blame. The problem here is, while the comic's friends are imaginary, and the 'crimes' they do are also fictitious, barry's 'friends' are real, and they all have to pay the price for him.

Growing up my folks would get the paper wherever we were stationed. The two I like and read was Snoopy and The Family Circus. In the Family Circus sometimes one of the kids would mess up and mom would ask who did it? Not Me. Not Me is a busy dude. Its not so funny when that sums up the daily briefing from the White House most days.

Muscleheads are more selfish (and by right-wing extrapolation metrics, tend to be Republican, per NewsMax). Okay, whatever. Why in the world is that "good news"?

Of course. That way you can be sure that no embarrassing evidence ever surfaces, and guide direction of the investigation so as not to embarrass the wrong people. Not only that, you can slow walk it as much as you need. It also has the added benefit of answering all inquires with, "I can't comment on that at this time, as there is an investigation currently in progress." (Protects pResidents, Attorney Generals, Secretary of States, et-al.)
I believe Barney Frank immediately initiated a House investigation when the banking scandal surfaced. It did wonders to keep the public from ever finding out how deeply involved the Democrats were in those banking failures.
Nixon did the special prosecuter route, Barney did his own investigation... which example would you follow?
I see where the head of the IRS division under fire for the screening of applicants for non-profit status according to political leanings is now in charge of Obamacare enforcement.
Wanna bet she had no idea what was going on in her division?

Freddie did a bit on Carson (where I saw the Phil Foster interview. It was Johnnie himself that gave big praise to foster for his ingenuity in stand-up) mere weeks before he died.'My Man Nat was with me when I got pulled over. The cop was impatient with me and demanded my license. Nat spoke up, "Don't be messin' with my friend when he been drinkin'!"

Linus was my favorite. The brain with the baby blanket.
Bailey Quarters (Jan Smithers) on WKRP was good too. Someone, Johnny Fever, Les, or one of the others would ask her a question, and she'd give a multi-layered answer. The fun was that often, they'd forget what the question was.
Guess I like 'brainy' characters because when I was little, I was often accused of not having any. brains, that is.

Listened to part of the hearings this afternoon on radio. Its like some of us are not speaking the same language. I know Miller spoke in english this afternoon but for him to say what has been going on over the last few years isn't partisan or illegal is just bile. I think we should get rid of the U.S. flag now and have a new one. One where freedom is not expected. One where private citizens can be expected to be a target if you question the dear leader. I pray with everything in me no violence happens but it wouldn't shock me if it does.

Indeed. But Miller did say today while she had no idea of anyone being targeted she was an exceptional civil servant. Oh boy. Can't wait for these guys to make health care rulings for us. I'm sure none of the hacks that are in the irs will still be there when this starts up next year. I also hope to win that jackpot Sat night so I can get the hell out of this nation.

Saw the video of the two Marines holding the umbrellas. The smirk on barry's face says he did it to diminish them. Making our fighting men lackeys to his whims is disgusting.
also, doesn't it seem that barry's only job lately is assigning blame for whatever f*ck-up comes to light?
Chris, you ain't the only one hoping to win it all. I got my sights on British Columbia. Been to Vancouver, and it 'feels' american enough that I won't get homesick. Canada welcomes Lottery winners with open arms. They take none of your money, and offer great tax advantages.(Been doing a little research on this)

I see. Imo the Marines know something Obama doesn't and most likely never will, what it means to serve and not be served. Sad that.

You say this so often, it indicates that in reality, you're salivating for it...living for it, like some sort of vindication of your continuous Eeyore-esque doom and gloom. Panting for Armageddon, in hopes of the Second Coming, and your 'call home'.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. I think you're one of them.
