Education leads to a more liberal world-view and ignorant people are generally more right-wing. Therefore education is liberal brainwashing, 'cuz liberals are stupid. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH!
This mindset continually amazes me: people who have studied their subjects for a long time tend to trust science over religious superstition or favor humanist values over ideological dogma ... and they're *obviously* wrong because they contradict people who never cracked a book except the Bible.
To quote former Texas Board of Education chairman Don Leroy, "Somebody's got to stand up to all these experts!" Because tenured professors of biology surely know less about biology than a dentist.

"BO himself seems to be suffering from a mild form of Fragile X syndrome"
Whereas you have the superhuman ability to pull information like that out of thin air.

And the conservative, god-fearing worldview leads to the VW plant in Chattanooga not being able to find enough workers in TN with the skills they need. VW is recruiting a thousand workers from out of state- if they can find parents who don't mind their kids being taught creationism in school.

I could also find a correlation between fires and fire-engines but I wouldn’t make a lot out of it. (you apparently would..but nevertheless, you might want to resist the temptation to conclude that fire engines cause fires).
You claim to understand what correlation and causation are, but it's clearly a pretense. Correlation doesn't mean you can claim causation in either direction. If someone who actually knows what those terms mean were to look at the situation, they'd come to the conclusion that, due to the high correlation between fires breaking out and fire trucks showing up on the scene, fires cause fire trucks to show up. No person with any modicum of intelligence would make the claim that fire trucks cause fires.
I could (easily) find a correlation between ugly women and liberalism.
One example means correlation, but not any sort of noteworthy correlation that would imply causation. I've only ever flown Jet Blue once, and that flight was delayed a bit. Now, there's a correlation between me flying Jet Blue and delays on their end, but it's an incredibly weak correlation due to the small sample size. I'm sure the degree of correlation between ugly women and liberalism is not that different from the degree of correlation between ugly women and conservatism.

This is offensive on many levels. To intelligent people, to liberals, to the incarcerated, to single mothers, to the unemployed, to people with developmental disabilities--whom you refer to as "mentally retarded." You're an ass, Fiber-All.

If Fiberal lived up to its name, it wouldn't be so full of shit.

>>BO himself seems to be suffering from a mild form of Fragile X syndrome- a common form of mental retardation;<<
And just how did you make that diagnosis?
Consulting the Merck Manual, here are the symptoms of Fragile X, and how Obama appears to match up, based on publicly available photos and documentation:
Large, protruding ears (one or both) - not so much
Long face (vertical maxillary excess) - no
High-arched palate (related to the above) - no
Hyperextensible finger joints - no
Double-jointed thumbs - no
Flat feet - no
Soft skin - no
Postpubescent macroorchidism (Larger testes in men after puberty) - no data
Hypotonia (low muscle tone) - no
Speech may be cluttered or nervous - no
Stereotypical repeating movements - no
Lazy eye = no
Shyness, limited eye contact, memory impairment, difficulty remembering faces - very much no
Your Argument Is Invalid.

"I could also find a correlation between fires and fire-engines but I wouldn’t make a lot out of it. (you apparently would..but nevertheless, you might want to resist the temptation to conclude that fire engines cause fires)."
One could say, however, that fire engines are attracted to fires, and flock to them. So what you're basically saying is that stupid people flock to conservativism.

Poor Fiberal is pissy because he has a low IQ. And it shows.
4/11/2012 12:25:32 PM
As if we needed any further evidence that wingnuts are more likely to be drooling morons, here comes Fiber-All with some personal proof.

Waaaaaah, reality has a liberal bias! They found out we don't think too hard about anything, and prefer our opinions to be made of sound-bites and slogans! The Occupy Movement are big doody-heads! Waaaaaaah!

It's things such as this that leave me cautiously optimistic that conservatism, especially the borderline sociopathic "fuck you I got mine" version seemingly so beloved in the USA, is seeing its dying years - because it is so exclusionary. Every single person who doesn't fit their mould of desirability is lumped into the same category, to be shunned and vilified, and those people in turn move to other sides of politics. Even now we see women in the US almost literally FLEEING to the side of the Democrats (who are still conservative but not as much) because Republicans all over the nation find it so essential to pass legislation controlling their very bodies, apparently not realising that women have been able to vote their for some time now.

Ironically, this person also complains about institutions of higher learning being bastions of liberalism, while trying to deny that people with lower intelligence are more likely to be conservative.
4/12/2012 7:29:56 AM
But... there is at least a partial correlation between fire engines and fires. You think fire engines just trundle around for the sheer hell of it?
(okay, they do attend non fire related incidents, but that's why its a partial correlation, yo)
4/12/2012 9:03:55 AM
I really hope the American Right keeps up this anti-intellectualism idiocy. In a decade or two when none of them are capable of tying their own shoes and they think the internet is some kind of sorcery they'll be really, really easy to slap around like a weak puppy.
Come to think of, I think a lot of them can't tie their own shoes now.

"I wouldn’t argue that there isn’t a correlation btw better educated and less likely to be right wing. However, those kinds of studies are most likely done by sociology/psychology academicians with vested interests (what serious scientist would waste their time?); and because institutions of “higher learning” have become propaganda mills for liberalism."
So, your admitting that their may be a correlation, but your problem is with the persons who pointed that out. C'mon, a**hat, a fact is a fact whether you hear it from your best friend or your worst enemy.
"BO himself seems to be suffering from a mild form of Fragile X syndrome- a common form of mental retardation; yet this is the liberal Messiah (let’s see his school transcripts)."
Are you a medical doctor? Yeah, I thought not. No matter how much you wish it were so, wishing doesn't MAKE it so. It is highly unlikely someone could become a constitutional lawyer if he was retarded. Elected to the Senate? That's another question entirely.

Some day this moron will realize that reality and facts have strong liberal biases.

Any point you would have made has been buried under ad-hominem and mud slinging.

The more education people have, the more likely they are to laugh at Moonfront, so education must be a liberal plot.

Again with the Obama transcripts.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude, which should tell you everything you need to know about his grades. I guess that means your right-wing low IQ is showing.

The Liberal Democrats are a British political party. I thought we were talking about the United States.
