And again, restricting the rights of private citizens to enter into freely negotiated contracts (such as a gay civil marriage) is yet another example of big government intrusion!

[q]THE ELEPHANT IN THE BEDROOM
Ten (and a half) reasons why Republicans—yes, Republicans—are the best party in bed

By Anonymous

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’d think Democrats would be better in the sack, because they’re usually, well…better human beings in general. Plus, they’re so em-oh-tional and sen-sitive and they genuinely care about your day. And how you feel. And how you felt yesterday. “Is there anything you need?” they whimper. Oh, shutthefuckup! This is sex we’re talking about! After numerous years of intensive research on both sides of the aisle—and sometimes in the aisle—I am here to report that Republican men (except the closet cases) are infinitely better to have sex with. Here’s why.
1. NO CONSCIENCE!
A Republican man will never whine in the middle of the night—let alone in the middle of screwing you—about the girlfriend/wife/whatever he is “devastating” by sleeping with you. He just does it. It’s all about him—he needs to be the best you ever had, and that can be a good thing if your getting off is contingent on his. He doesn’t even stay for breakfast. (Though if you do make him breakfast, he is eternally grateful and will go down on you for another several hours.) One word: pancakes!

2. NO TEARS!
A Republican man will never, ever cry. Not on election night (no matter what happens). Not when you’re breaking up with him (what, you think he cared?). Not even when he’s having “a problem I’ve never had before, really, I’m not kidding, I swear.”

3. A SENSE OF PERSPECTIVE
I’ve dated Democrats whose nights have been ruined (forever!) due to some stupid-ass comment by Bill Frist on Hardball. I’ve watched them go all mopey, argue with the TV…and then their little weenies disappear. Not so with GOPers. Republicans, particularly when naked, do not want to sit around and talk about Social Security privatization. Or Iraq, for chrissake. Or why (oh, boo hoo, get over it!) Kerry lost. They don’t even want to sit around naked and talk about George W. Bush. They just want you to sit on them.

4. A SENSE OF HUMOR
Republicans are happy to watch Jon Stewart with you. They think he’s a riot. They don’t parse every word he says in an effort to figure out if “The Huffington Post” will approve. They just laugh, pour another cocktail, and decide upon which couch they will fuck your brains out after the show.

5. FOREPLAY
Democrats often need something incredibly erotic—like Meet the Press—to get revved up, particularly on a Sunday morning (there are only so many sections of The New York Times). Republicans, on the other hand, don’t even need Fox News to get it up. They understand that foreplay is about sex. And lots of it. Democrats are too busy checking if the condoms you keep in the jar by the bed are good for the environment. And by the time they figure that out, we’ve all lost our erections.

Republicans have presided over massive increases in government spending, an increased deficit, an expansion in the already large military industrial complex and overall a big increase in the apparatus of state.

In my view the Democrats should be emphasizing all of these issues.

At this point, the 'Republicans equals the party of small government' meme looks laughably absurd.
To do so, the Democrats would have to suggest cuts (!) in the government. To date, the only suggestions floated have been increasing taxes to meet existing spending/or increase spending.

"Last night, Jessica Simpson turned down an invitation to meet President Bush at a fundraiser. Yeah, Bush said he invited Simpson because he likes being around people who challenge him." --Conan O'Brien

"That makes sense - if you're a Republican politician, you get wined and dined by oil companies, bankers, foreign investors. If you're a Democrat, you have to go to things like rallies for illegal migrant workers and meet with angry lesbians for animal rights. That's no fun." --Jay Leno

what's coming in the post-2008 world is both spending cuts, as well as a massive tax hike.

someone has to pay for Bush's drunken sailor spending, and it seems silly to suggest that Democrats are incapable of cutting government, especially with the Clinton years to the party's credit, and also in comparison to what has gone on the past 6 years combined with tax cuts that simply cannot responsibly be made permanent.

Gene Stone: Don't Be Happy. Worry.

Mon Mar 20, 5:36 PM ET

Here's a piece of news bound to please half the country, and anger the other half. According to a story by Kurt Kleiner in the Toronto Star, whiny children grow up to be rigid and politically conservative. Self-reliant, confident kids grow up to be liberals.

This isn't just wishful thinking from the left. It's based on a serious study conceived by a University of California at Berkeley professor, as published in the academic magazine, the Journal of Research into Personality.

Jack Block and his late wife, Jeanne Block, tracked almost one hundred children for two decades. From nursery school on, the kids were studied and interviewed--without any sense of political bias, as back in nursery school, few of the kids really cared about politics.

Block found that the whiniest, least confident kids were those who grew up to be uncomfortable with ambiguity, who toed a rigid line on social issues, and who were, for the most part, right wingers.

The kids who were loose, interesting, and willing to challenge authority ended up being liberals.

The study would seem to contradict another that came out a few months ago from the Pew Research Center, and was featured in the mainstream media across the country. This one claimed that, for the most part, conservatives tend to be happier than liberals.

But when you think about it, is there really a contradiction here?

Maybe someone who tells a pollster that he or she is happy isn't really someone whose life you'd want to emulate. And maybe someone who is leading a confident, interesting, and fulfilled life is.
After all, who do you think would say that he or she is happier, George Bush or John Kerry? Dick Cheney or Al Gore? Laura Bush or Hillary Clinton?

Clearly being happy isn't the goal.

As the song almost says, if being happy means being George Bush, I don't want to be happy.

KID POLITICS | Whiny children, claims a new study, tend to grow up rigid and traditional. Future liberals, on the other hand ...
Mar. 19, 2006. 10:45 AM
KURT KLEINER
SPECIAL TO THE STAR


Remember the whiny, insecure kid in nursery school, the one who always thought everyone was out to get him, and was always running to the teacher with complaints? Chances are he grew up to be a conservative.

At least, he did if he was one of 95 kids from the Berkeley area that social scientists have been tracking for the last 20 years. The confident, resilient, self-reliant kids mostly grew up to be liberals.

[...]




The confident kids turned out liberal and were still hanging loose, turning into bright, non-conforming adults with wide interests. The girls were still outgoing, but the young men tended to turn a little introspective.

Block admits in his paper that liberal Berkeley is not representative of the whole country. But within his sample, he says, the results hold. He reasons that insecure kids look for the reassurance provided by tradition and authority, and find it in conservative politics. The more confident kids are eager to explore alternatives to the way things are, and find liberal politics more congenial.

this study was done in Berkley Calif, the mecca of libearlism.
