That's some interesting science you've been studying there.

Especially the less self absorbed.








Oh how I enjoy alters...

So someone who's disciplined, industrious, and not self-absorbed is happy, and someone who is otherwise is not.
I still say happiness is too intangible to be measured by any standard.

Perhaps chances are better for happiness if you follow this model.

And it looks like conservatives are just as reliant on sweeping stereotypes as ever.

Did diamond rate this 5 stars?

And why do I think that Joe Simpson and GWB were separated at birth? Oh well, at least W doesn't make creepy inappropriate comments about his daughters' looks and breasts.

i've got some pompous, lazy, wealthy, self-indulgent, silver-spoon-up-the-ass-yet-i-deserve-everything-that-was-given-to-me Republican youth for you to meet.

I thought it was a riot that she went to Capitol Hill with her hairdresser in tow. She borrowed that demure outfit she wore because the dress she was going to wear ripped-they actually reported that on some show I was watching last night.

demamer.com

"Clearly, the NRCC has been spoiled by the likes of Bono, who would gladly show up to a Girl Scout bake sale if it meant a chance to talk about his favorite subjects, Third World debt and the fact that U2 is the "greatest band in the world." Now, please excuse us while we attend to the unsettling, alien emotions and accompanying hot flashes associated with our newly-developing respect for Jessica Simpson, whose teasingly insensitive on-again, off-again games are even more entertaining when played with President Bush than they were with Nick Lachey."

sorry if I've missed something, but if the only measure they use of "happy" is how happy someone rates themselves on a single question...it can mean *anything* from yes, being a republican I am happy (compared to the democrat) because my party controls everything (while dem's do not) to yes, being a republican I am happy because it is part of my political philosophy that people oughta quit complaining and just do what they need to and shut up, etc...
It's really uninterpretable without the whole survey for context, and even then...

I'm pissed at the comments about Bono appearing at republican party fundraisers, seriously...I assume he has NOT, and I think this asshole Forti guy should issue an statement indicating he was wrong.
Good for her to blow them off, what a shitty little ploy from the dubya camp, blech.
cheers!

indeed, you miss too much these days if you stop to think.
Quite the contrary any self respecting Right Wing Death Beast revels in such activities and practices.

Generally we are most happy that the left is unhappy.
