    this should be interesting...

    1. actual study can be found here:
    Bright Minds and Dark Attitudes - Lower Cognitive Ability Predicts Greater Prejudice Through Right-Wing Ideology and Low Intergroup Contact

    2. George Monbiot's article can be found here:
    Liberal Constipation

    3. sex-education study can be found here:
    Sex Education Less Effective in Conservative States

    in summation; the study says that stupid people are more likely to be conservative. Monbiot dismisses the point as being obvious and instead asserts that the real issue is how liberals are just as stupid for letting conservatism be as widespread as it is in the 21st century.
    I now relinquish the podium so that others may comment.

    However, I doubt voting for a Democrat is going to make you smart.

    Conservatives and religion. Keeping the world in the dark ages is what they really want. Good luck with that.

    Studies show that stupid people don't benefit from studies.

    Seriously. In my childhood, our politics included such things as which starting Pokemon was the best and who had the best Yo Yo, among others. :hmm:

    Your upcoming elections sound really thrilling. You can choose between Obama and one of these three clowns.

    We used to see who could bounce higher on my parents bed, until my friend got launched into the coffee table.

    From that day on I decided the coffee table should be placed on the floor... and in a different room.

    Unfortunately now I just break the bed :/ STUPID WOOD
