Yale researcher realizes the TEA Party is a lot smarter than he thought

Despite all the doom and gloom in the news today, Glenn found time to share a positive story on radio this morning involving a Yale professor and fascinating new data he has compiled about the TEA Party.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“This is great news. Remember what everyone has said about the TEA Party,” Glenn asked. “Maybe you’re a conspiracy theorist, or maybe you are somebody who’s crazy, or you’re uneducated, or you’re rude.”

Dan Kahn, a professor of law at Yale Law School, recently released data on the relationship between “science comprehension” and political outlooks. And, much to Kahn’s surprise, the data found a strong correlation between science comprehension and self-identified TEA Party members.

He writes:

But if you do, then maybe you’ll find this interesting. The dataset happened to have an item in it that asked respondents if they considered themselves “part of the Tea Party movement.” Nineteen percent said yes.

It turns out that there is about as strong a correlation between scores on the science comprehension scale and identifying with the Tea Party as there is between scores on the science comprehension scale and Conservrepub.

Except that it has the opposite sign: that is, identifying with the Tea Party correlates positively (r = 0.05, p = 0.05) with scores on the science comprehension measure:

“Wait a minute. This can’t be true,” Glenn joked. “This is Yale. This is the university, not the lock company?”

In his analysis, Kahn openly admits he was surprised by the data:

I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.

But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the “paper” (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico).
I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.

“Okay. So just so you know, this is a university professor that is surprised because we’re all [supposed to be ]rubes. We’re all idiots. We’re all stupid,” Glenn said. “We’ve never read a book before in our life and we certainly would much rather look for miracles that have nothing to do with the miracle of science. We just believe that only our magic sky god can do anything. And medicine should all be chased out because it’s witchcraft.”

In theory, Kahn could have chosen to hide his results or manipulate the data to prove a different point, but, instead, he openly admitted that while he was surprised by his results, this is the results his research turned up.

“I think this is great. Dan Kahan will be looking for a job [soon],” Glenn said laughing. “I hope you have tenure, Dan, because Yale’s not going to keep you around, dude. “

    A leftist Yale Researcher got the shock of his life, I would love to have seen the look on his face…

    Since it has been conducted by the leftists, then we can use their own information in a counterattack to show: “You claim we are stupid, your own party information says that is not true.”

    Do not expect the leftist media or any Democrat fanatics to say the study is true, or even present it to the masses of their low-info base.

    Dan Kahn just proved we are not dumb inbreed red necks as much as the left wants us to be. Hell they also want us to be all old angry white KKK members but anyone with common sense knows that is a crock. To me this is not shocking everyone I know in the tea party is into history reading and science. I own two telescopes myself and study history and astronomy. Everyday I try to learn something new. It is important for us to defend Dan Kahn because since when did a liberal professor ever tell the truth about findings and the left will go after him for reporting the truth.

  • Anonymous

    I’m actually shocked that the researcher chose to include the data on his analysis. Most left leaning researchers (which is likely over 90%) would have either manipulated the data or discarded it under the pretense that it consisted of what they considered to be “outliers”.

    Having gone through a PhD training program in molecular biology, my experience was that most researchers, because they depend on government grants for life itself, and most have never worked outside of government funded institutions, would not be capable of such revelatory insight, much less reporting the data accurately.

    This was refreshing. I don’t remember the last time that I saw honest social research.

    I’m an old man and once upon a time, I had a lot of fun building houses and earning an honest living. Never made much money but I was in a position to watch several people in the ’70′s and ’80′s spend a lot of money on “solar power”. Without exception, these folks lost money on their investments because of negative returns from the units. Several of them did profit early on from the help the “guv’mnt” gave but in the long run, the government and THEY both lost money. Today, that equipment is history – and it was even “Made in America”. i can only imagine how it is with the “Made in Chine” labels. On a similar subject, i it is verifiable that it takes the equivalent of 1.2 gallons of regular gasoline to produce one gallon of ethanol. Where’s the savings in that – and that’s not even considering the spiraling costs of corn related food products caused by this fiasco – plus the damage done to millions of: lawn mowers, marine engines, chain saws, weedeaters, etc. Oh, you don’t believe this? A little research will show the truth – unless you’ve got “leftism” in your eyes (and mind!). Mr. Vacman, why don’t you do a little research on that and report the truth and see what happens to your ratings.

    “solar city stock has risen 5 fold”

    A stock moving in price does not equate success. In the case of solarcity it means that there are more buyers SPECULATING on it.

    Solar City loses money, big time. 2010 loss of $39M; 2011 loss of $44M; 2012 loss of $64M; first 2 quarters 2013 loss of $49M.

    See, Even a leftist Yale researcher (and that may or may not be a correct Label to give Him) can change his mind when faced with reason. I’m not saying ALL leftist would do the same, but here is proof that its possible. The problem with the Tea party is so few are willing to present their views in a way that people CAN accept them. For this Yale researcher it came in the results of his study, it may be different for other people.
    I haven’t had a position of the tea party that I flat out disagree with, with one exception: When the tea party members completely dismiss someone’s beliefs, positions, or opinions as irrelevant, stupid, unconstitutional, un-American, un-patriotic, etc.. and then proceed to viciously assault them verbally with personal attacks a wild accusations/assumptions about their character and personal background, just because they are contrary to their own. YOU LOST ME!
    That is not how you persuade anyone to listen to you and certainly not how you change someone’s mind.
    I feel that the Tea Party thinks they can Bully their way into changing the country’s mind. If you ask me that is worst then the DEMS approach.

    What a silly person that professor is, thinking Tea Party people don’t understand science. In fact it’s the complete opposite.

    I would like to say that although this is true, arrogance is the factor that neutralizes smarts in anybody. Look at Einstein; Not to the exact word, but he said that people who wrote the bible, and built the pyramids are to stupid for any t…ype of creditability. That is arrogant because he as a scientist could not build a pyramid or instruct anybody else on his best day. Through the help of someone or God, the very people Einstein criticizes are way more advanced than any of us are today. Arrogant to the subject; When you put your own greedy needs in front of this country you look as arrogant as it makes you stupid. Sorry about the harshness of that comment, God bless.

    I bet you all dollars to doughnuts that some people will argue my Einstein comment and leave the greedy arrogant comment alone. See to prove that they do not have a self centered motive, which causes arrogance cannot be proven without undoing it; care about the country as a whole, see? God bless.

    Oh and it’s really easy to have high share prices when you recieve constant government subsidies and have traders pouring money into the stock despite poor company performance. I like Elon Musk a lot, but there are a lot better ways to get a return than a company that is currently way over-valued. I mean can you say bubble? It has a negative EPS for crying out loud and is at an all time high lol, but you should stay in it seriously. Put your money where your little balls are. SolarCity, buy now?

    The Obama administration’s efforts to promote renewable energy took an unexpected turn in May when it was revealed a major recipient of Washington’s largesse had turned on the hand that had been feeding it and sued the federal government, claiming it had not received all the money to which it was entitled.

    Changes in Subsidy Rules
    In February, San Mateo, Calif.-based SolarCity quietly brought suit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, saying the U.S. Treasury Department had retroactively changed the rules for a program that oversees taxpayer-funded grants to solar installation companies.

    The grants in question were tucked into the giant 2009 Obama stimulus package. Known as the “Payments-in-Lieu-of-Tax Credits” provision of that law, the program provides grants to companies installing solar panels in homes and businesses. Instead of more traditional tax credits, the program provided hard cash to solar equipment installers. The amount of grant money a company was eligible to apply for depended on the fair-market value of the systems to be installed.

    Overstating Fair Market Value?
    The lawsuit is but the latest skirmish between SolarCity and the Treasury Department. Last December, about the time of SolarCity’s Initial Public Offering (IPO), the Treasury Department’s Inspector General (IG) launched an investigation, which is still underway, of the three largest solar panel installation and leasing companies, including SolarCity, to see if they had accurately measured the value of their projects.

    At issue in the IG’s probe is the 30 percent federal tax credit for solar power based on the installed cost of the system. The 30 percent tax credit is separate from the Obama stimulus package’s grants program, but what both have in common is determining “fair-market value” as opposed to the actual cost of installation. The Treasury Department is investigating whether SolarCity and other solar equipment installers are making inflated fair-market-value claims.

    Even though he was surprised by the result, the difference in score is not that big, between Tea Partiers and non-Tea Partiers. It’s about as big as the difference between liberals and conservatives, which wasn’t that big, either. The difference when religiosity is taken into account is more significant.

    It should be noted that the data set probably did not disaggregate liberals from conservatives on that question. So the non-Tea Party set combines both liberal and conservative scores, whereas the Tea Party set is most likely a subset of conservatives.

    This speech is so dead on about our nation. Americans wake up. We are the watchmen of our nation against the pure evil and tyranny that we are witnessing in Washington, D.C. Are we going to give over our nation to the imposters who have taken it over. Or are we going to declare victory in Jesus name and restore our great nation and cast these evil men and women out. Listen to him and then pray. His message is right on. This is our nation, we can no longer allow those in Washington to call evil good. They are the enemy. God warned us are we going to sit by and allow these evil men and women to destroy what god gave us and what our founding fathers and those through history fought for. For our freedom, liberty, the constitution. This is one nation under God, not Islam, not this corrupt leadership. God have mercy and restore our nation. We are the watchmen.

Now it’s riding on speculation because the man behind Tesla Motors (Elon Musk ) has bought a 7% stake in the company. Elon Musks cousin Lyndon Rive is the CEO and co-founder or Solar City. The Feds are investigating Solar City because they think they have been overcharging it’s customers and filing false clams to the government. (Highly subsidized by the Government) Vacuum man is trying to drive the price up by promoting Solar City all over the internet. Profiteering.

    Let me make my statement clear, If have not done so when relying to Swiftt weak attempt to correct me.

    Starry-Eyed Surprise statement was an opinion and not a fact as Swiftt seems to believe. She said:

    Well said, all one needs to do is look at the long list of failed solar companies that saw their stock prices rise and fall. Bailout money made their stock soar and when it ran out, so did the Owners, with lots of TARP money and the companies went belly up. His little stock pick will belly up soon, solar panels are notorious for failing when made cheap enough to create any type of profit from the sun. When they fail, they get sent back to the company for warranty repair and like some of the failed “Green Companies” that are long gone, they had more panels coming back than going out. Not a good biz model!

I know this as I am in an industry that supplies the solar corps equipment to process the matrix. We’ve made a killing over the past three years because the stuff destroys all equipment that it touches. But now that run for us is drying up because the facts behind the fantasy are being revealed.

    “Vacuum”, your childish response shows you didn’t even read the article above, re: TEA Party and Science correlations by Professor Kahn from Yale. TEA Partiers understand far more than your baby words.

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    Actually, I answer before I read the study as did my of your friends. Now that I have read the study I feel, much of this information written can be applied to anyone or any group. However, If you read the whole study, you begin to see a pattern. I think it’s missing information.
    I.E.
    The study speaks about crime rates, math, comparing data from both parts of the study. In the same token they speak about a right and wrong answer in this comparison.

    I can’t believe thats true when you talk about Banning of weapons. (that’s right rep you only scored high because they were talking about weapons :), lol I could not resist, I had to poke. Anyhow

    The study does not take into account the number of unreported crimes. The different type of crime like children, killing children or accident with gun safety. But while I agree with the idea “city that do not ban guns may have less crime rates”. I would like to see the data if gun Accidents rose?

    The study also talks about how groups of people band together, and they are lead by each others views. For me, that part speaks directly about reps. A great examples of this would be the dislike of gays, small mind view of minorities or Church in politics, I have some many examples, I think i could fill this whole page. To add to this though but off the subject. I believe more often than not Dems are willing to argue VS reps/tea partiers are not because they only believe their side is right. (That’s not every rep, I have had some good arguments with some reps and I agreed with what they had to say. But majority result to slander when they can’t win. Then they find friend to aid them on a subject even when I have proved its mislead or wrong.

    Over all, I have mixed feeling about the study and I am not sure if this study proves anything except what we already know. People usually follow the group opinion. That goes for reps too

    Typical Lib/prog. These guys will turn on each other at the drop of a hat, or in this case, the drop of some information that is contradictory to their views. I guess there really is NO loyalty among thieves. If this were factual information pointing to the opposite of what was discovered, lefties would spam it all over the media to discount/harass the Tea Party or conservatives for that matter. But because Dan Kahn is one of their very own, all they can do is try to discount the information (with none of their own mind you) and demonize it to the best of their imagination (and they have great imaginations).

    This study wasn’t about Tea Partiers being “smarter” than anyone. It was this Professor’s attempt at proving a crazy lib theory that for some reason Tea Partiers are uneducated, bible bashing, rednecks from Appalachia. Sorry libs, apparently your going to have to try another angle at this. The side effect of this study IS however that Tea Partiers are, on the average, as educated, if not more so than average person in their science comprehension. Its not meant to offend lefties. Take it easy, no one is saying your dumb.

    I don’t ever remember reading a sillier article on a sillier topic which includes sillier remarks from the “researcher”. I find it difficult to believe that a r=.05 would be significant at the p=.05 level with that small N. And if it were, so what? It is meaningless, accounting for almost none of the variance. This should never have seen print and if Kahn is really as he presents himself he should go hide. His colleagues must be having quite a laugh.

    The majority of Nazi’s were total atheists. I’m sure you’ve been to your atheist sites where you read that Nazi’s were God fearing men who wore belt buckles that said “God with us” on them but in reality, Hitler said repeatedly that Nazism was a secular ideology founded on science.[1] It is generally believed by historians that Hitler’s post war and long term goal was the eradication of Christianity in Germany.[2][3] Hitler appears not to have believed in the Judeo-Christian notion of God, though various scholars consider his final religious position may have been a form of deism. Others consider him “atheist”. The question is debated. During his early career, and for a variety of reasons, he made various comments against non-Nazi atheistic (i.e. “Bolshevik”) movements, and in favour of so-called positive Christianity (a movement which purged Christianity of its Jewish elements and instilled it with Nazi philosophy). In private, confidantes such as Martin Bormann, Joseph Goebbels and Albert Speer noted that he was hostile to Christianity (though Speer also wrote that he never formally left the Church).”

    I look for well-rounded information and I like to know more than one side of an argument but I really do feel as the Red side only cares about certain people. LOL, I have read it. Not to mention witness many of the acts hate acts committed by Rep/Tea party extremist before, during and toward the end of Obama presidency. You can
    help be see hate coming for that side. during the first year, I watch Tea Party protect I realized how hate filled they were.. Now is every tea partier a bigot/racist I don’t know. I know it not the Dems protesting the Command and Chief with pictures of Obama and family as monkeys. Or when ever i go to a Rep site I see the more slander, name calling and racial slur than any other site. On political chicks.com they even have tea party comparing back soldier to whites how sick is that. Sorry joe I do not know your background unless you can prove otherwise your comments are false. (I do have links).

    On the other hand, I have friends that are Reps ( yes we argue for fun all the time). They tell me the “Rep party is not about, what I see, hear and read.” My question to that statement is where to I get my information about then? I know firsthand just by arguing with people around the net, reps get angry and start to slander when they do not win or randomly change the subject in the middle of an argument. I am not trying to be one sided. I am just telling you what I have seen, Which is one reason why I started asking for Links. Another reason other is, I want to know who is lying and who is not. 9 times out of 10, the person lying is the person that cannot produce a link. Also, I would like to know where you got your information.

    No, I do not fear fox, I just know they lie or mislead as do many other news stations. The different between them and Fox news, FOX has a golden pass to lie.

    Stop the lies Richie. You’re making a fool out of yourself and your family.

    Solar panels don’t come falling out of the sky – they have to be manufactured. Similar to computer chips, this is a dirty and energy-intensive process. First, raw materials have to be mined: quartz sand for silicon cells, metal ore for thin film cells. Next, these materials have to be treated, following different steps (in the case of silicon cells these are purification, crystallization and wafering). Finally, these upgraded materials have to be manufactured into solar cells, and assembled into modules. All these processes produce air pollution and heavy metal emissions, and they consume energy – which brings about more air pollution, heavy metal emissions and also greenhouse gases.

    Oh really, explain how the Bush administration intended to pay for two Iraq wars? Sounded like a pretty stupid and costly investment, in both money and lives.

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    @ Average Joe: Not true, read the posts “why I ask for links”. That are below my older posts.

    I look for well-rounded information and I like to know more than one side of an argument but I really do feel as the Red side only cares about certain people. LOL, I have read it. Not to mention witness many of the acts of hate committed by Rep/Tea party extremist before, during and toward the end of Obama presidency. You can’t help but see hate coming for that side. Unless you don’t want too. During the first year, I watched a few Tea Party protest, I realized how hate filled they were then. Now, do I believe every tea partier is bigot/racist? No, But I know it is not the Dems protesting the Command and Chief with pictures of Obama and family as monkeys. Or Stopping people from being able to decide for themselves if they want to use contraceptive, destroying voter rights, Trying to keep religion in government when the United States is not a christian only country and the list goes on.

    Whenever I go to a Rep site, I see the more slander, name-calling and racial slurs than on any other site. It is funny, or should I say hippocratic? A few reps argue the point that some dems call names to certain (minority) republican politicians, yet you go on a rep site and you will see them calling Blacks, Muslims and other groups called any name these haters can think of. Politichicks.com had a tea party member comparing black soldiers to white soldiers. These are the kids that keep you safe, so you can have your hate filled views. How sick is that? What’s worse are the number of likes these idiots received. Which goes back to my point about this stufy early. “most people just go with the loudest voice in their party” and the study even said the same thing.

    Sorry Joe, I do not know your background but unless you can prove what I have seen wrong, your comments are false. I think you are taught more hate than I am and you would be lying if you said “there’s more hate or oppression to others rights on the DEM side than the reps side.” Links on the bottom and I have more if you want them, friend.

    On the other hand, I have friends that are Reps (Yes, we argue for fun, all the time). They tell me the “Rep party is not about, what I have seen, heard and read.” My question to that statement is, where do I get my information about them than? I know firsthand just by arguing with people around the net, reps get angry and start to slander when they do not win or randomly change the subject in the middle of an argument. I proved that argument here and I have seen the Tea party in actions. I am not trying to be one sided. I am just telling you what I have seen, Which is one reason why I started asking for Links. Another reason is, I want to know who is lying and who is not. 9 times out of 10, the people lying are the people that cannot produce a link. Also, I would like to know where you got your information. You might have good information I want to share.

    No, I do not fear fox, I just know they lie or mislead as do many other news stations. The different between them and Fox news, FOX has a golden pass to lie and not get in trouble.

    The components and the chemicals used to machine and otherwise construct the solar panels of modern construction use petrochemical products in their manufacture. Plastics, resin cements, machining lubricants for the metal framing all use oil derived materials if not entirely made from oil.

    I COULD LIST THE LINKS, BUT THEY ARE TOO NUMEROUS AND YOU ARE TOO MUCH OF A SYCOPHANT TO UNDERSTAND ANYWAY….

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    I didn’t post any racial slurs, name calling is usually mutual and confined to R’s or D’s, Obama and Harry Reid are really good at name calling and hate filled rhetoric. Obama, “I’m the only guy between you and the pitchforks.”,Obama “If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun.”

    Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, referred to Republicans as “anarchists,” and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, deemed Republicans “legislative arsonists.”

    In fact the Democrats used terms such as “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” and “terrorists” constantly during the shutdown.

    Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer compared Republican lawmakers to suicide bombers. Dan Pfeiffer; “But what we are not for is negotiating with people who have a bomb strapped to their chest.”, “It is not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say, ‘Give me everything inside or I’m going to burn it down.’”

    Democratic Party official Allan Brauer; wished the children of a speechwriter in the office of Sen. Ted Cruz would endure a painful death.

    You see, the leftists and Democrat officials including Obama are full of hate filled rhetoric.

    I don’t need to dispute anything.

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    links please :)

    See it’s easy, no need for caps, or rep BS… Thank you

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    First, thanks for the replay that was not well….
    stupid. I have no word to describe libsuckbigtime response.

    I really do not think you are arguing anything I said or that you read my whole statement, to be honest. I did not say, you said any “racial slurs, name calling” I was speaking about rep sites and showing the double standards in ideals and what people view as facts between the media and the average joe:).

    Second, you call this calling names? “Obama, “I’m the only guy
    between you and the pitchforks.”, Obama “If they bring a knife to a fight,we bring a gun.” ???????

    How about:
    Black are going to kill you by Dan Savage

    David Marsters http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/08/29/racist-maine-conservative-david-marsters-calls-obama-the-n-word/

    Much more, There is so much “live” content showing conservatives really only care about certain people. You dispute that by saying Obama said “I’m the only guy between you and the pitchforks.” Then you look at all the hate coming for REP side, you have to wonder if it’s true.

    Anyhow, do me a favor and read my full statement. I gave a
    lot of examples beside just links. All I am looking for is information, maybe I will learn something. Yes, please provide links. LOL, you called http://www.ontheissues.org/Civil_Rights.htm
    “propaganda”. You do know what the link is? Check it out before you just deem it propaganda.

    Thanks for the replay.

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    So you can’t produce any documentation that backs up your posts. I understand little fella. You’re full of insults but empty in proof. “Please don’t contact me anymore” did I mess up your pathetic little clown act? You spend hours insulting people all over the internet. The Truth, right?

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    “Whenever I go to a Rep site, I see the more slander, name-calling and racial slurs than on any other site.” You are here on this site and you insinuate that “Rep” are name callers and use racial slurs. I never use racial slurs as I have stated, name calling and hate filled comments are very common From Dems from the President on down. I backed up my comment with their own words.

    I call it hate speech because that’s what it is. I call “legislative arsonists., “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” name calling because that’s what it is. I don’t care about Dan Savage, he’s not running our country. You do see the point I was making I hope. It’s promoted by Dems from our leaders on down and that’s a very big deal whether you think it is or not.

    You came here making generalizing accusations directed towards Rep’s here. I took offence at your accusations and generalizations and answered you in a civil manner.

    Have a nice day.

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    I know, I tried to reply to yours as well.

    Joe, it’s your job to post links disputing my clams not mine. Don’t forget you did not post any links, You know where I get my information, You could be getting yours from wiki for all I know. My first statement is as truthful as I can be, are you saying none of what I stated is or was true about your party? I think the links speak for themselves.

    It’s funny every reps hate on Al Sharpton’s but they forget all the good he has done. http://www.biography.com/people/al-sharpton-207640, I have alot more link of hate from tea party memeber and I just that it was wrong to expose you to all of them at once. I figured you may not have known. Basically, what I am saying is, I gave you the benefit that you did not know hate existed in your party as it does.

    Sorry friend, no agenda. that would be cool, going undercover and sabotaging reps site, you know OO7 type stuff. No, I just thought the title of this subject was funny and I wanted to see if there was any truth. Yep, the same old party taking glory for a really open study that can apply to anyone.

    Anyhow, thanks for the conversation. In the future, argue the points stated and we will have better arguments where we both may gain information.

    Later friend.

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    It’s not my job to do anything except what I have already done, in fact you proved my point for me in later posts here. You have a Liberal agenda.

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    Why can I come here to argue with reps, just to get their perspective on my thought?

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    You totally dismissed me and my perspective on your thought. You later go on and post to others touting the virtues of liberals and the hate of Republicans. You’re bias is self evident. You didn’t want my opinion on things you just wanted to argue your bias with someone.

  • Occupy the Dollar

    You definitely skipped a pretty important sentence in your “quote” without even using ellipses like real writers do to inform your viewers THAT YOU SKIPPED A SECTION. That section reads:

  • Ignorance is not bliss

    Honestly, Joe you have to debate my perspective instead of running around them. I stated my views and your response was to something else. I tried to bring you back to the topic at hand during further replies.

    Sorry Joe your response “You’re bias is self evident. You didn’t want my opinion on things you just wanted to argue your bias with someone.” was a cop out from answering any of the questions or statements I proposed, which was done on every line you posted. Furthermore, you did not dispute much.

    Joe, there are always two or more sides to an argument. I presented mine, you did not present your or rebuttal mine. I will take your silence on any of the points I made as a win.

    Later friend and have a great weekend and sorry it so long for my reply, I had to watch my show.

    This should clear any Tea Party doubt.

    Leonard Pitts, columnist for the Miami Herald said today, “True
    believers in the tea Party thrive on rejection.
    Yay. Yippee. Woo-hoo, even.”

    Does this mean true believers in a “government forced
    healthcare insurance or pay a large fine law” thrive on applause? Yay. Yippee. Woo-hoo, even.

    He also said, “they can have purity or they can have power.
    They cannot have both.” Does this mean he believes you cannot expect virtue and
    power to be compatible?

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    Honestly Ignorance, I’ve made my point very clear. You have an agenda and I exposed that agenda as being a leftist one. It’s in your rhetoric and I don’t see the need to keep reposing the facts that you espouse constantly are pure leftist talking points.

    No cop outs, just factually accurate responses. Yes there are always two sides of everything and you have shown what side you’re on. You’re a closet liberal, here to spew your leftist talking points while claiming that you’re anything but a liberal.

    Do me a favor, stop with the attacks and spewing of leftist rhetoric. You’re boring. ” I will take your silence on any of the points I made as a win.” You’re just another liberal trying really hard for a win something? Is this what all your BS is really about? Go bother someone else. Go spread your nonsense somewhere else. YAWN.

    OBTW, you’re not any friend of mine. I actually chose my friends and I doubt that you would be one. I don’t really care for libbies. Never have, even when they try to mask themselves as something else. You’re been caught, admit who you are and then go away.

    Actually, I did not claim anything you
    said that. Once again, no mask and I just would like Reps actually answer the
    question posed. Maybe read a whole statement or even look up facts once in
    awhile. The reason you don’t like the left side is, you do like seeing the type
    of party you support. Which is my main problem with the right side other than
    not answering questions, No this is not a bad statement because you never argue
    any points to change any views.

    Yes,
    I claim a win when you deliberately go around question. Sorry friend, just
    because people do not agree with you does not mean they are wrong. I could see
    if I were just making up facts but that not the case and all you had to do was
    acknowledge the question and provide a response, why you think the way I pose
    the question was a bad interpretation

    Hint.
    If I said the tea party was blue, you would say no they are not blue and this
    is why.

    Not..
    If I said the tea party was blue, you say, yea but the economy is red, and
    nothing after.

    You come here insulting the posters and I pointed out that the hate comes from the top, president on down. You’re incapable of understanding that so you try to insult me by playing stupid.

    I’m still not your friend and I really don’t care if I hear from you or not. You’re not that important, your argument was hate filled and incoherent.

    1. I said “The reason you don’t like the left side is, you do not like seeing the type of party you support. Which is my main problem with the right side other than not answering questions, No this is not a bad statement because you never argue any points to change any views.”

    that not am not admitting anything except you did not argue the points therefore you did not change my opinion.

    2. I told you how to argue, instead you come up conspiracy theories.

    3. You are unable to speak about social issues that damage a normal running society. These issues have a direct connection to your party and poison others. Yet they are not important to you, Or explaining this is not important so other understand. (These is a huge issues to me because we can fix the US without understanding where everyone is coming from instead of going around question you dislike, Especially when they put brother against brother)

    I am sorry but regardly what this study says, you are not the brightest bulb friend….. Stop crying have actually argue the subject.

    NM, no need, I already know what you are going to say,

    1. I am hateful for showing what i have seen and looking for an explanation.

    2. Nothing matter except that what reps deem correct information

    3. All research is made to be against reps, because everyone is against them.

    4. Never argue with fact, they only make you actually have to look at a whole issues.

    If the “professor” had spent a little time speaking with Tea Party members, he could have saved himself a lot of bother trying to validate his prejudices. His findings are nothing new. Surveys by Pew and others have found that conservatives are far better informed than liberals. Law professor Ilya Somin equated it to a difference of about two year’s of formal education. Also, Yale is one of those “schools of higher education” that show a negative learning among students on matters of civic knowledge and American history, according to the INtercollegiate Studies Institute.
    That’s what happens when you go to Yale and they’ve picked your parents pockets for $200,000 or more. You come out dumber than when you went in. But, of course, when you have a week of school sanctioned sex seminars, the students learn a lot of other things that are guaranteed to get them jobs as waiters and waitresses.
