Turns out liberals are the real authoritarians.
A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with psychoticism now says it got it wrong. Very wrong.
The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has an error and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.
The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed, the journal said in the startling correction.
The descriptive analyses report that those higher in Eysencks psychoticism are more conservative, but they are actually more liberal; and where the original manuscript reports those higher in neuroticism and social desirability are more liberal, they are, in fact, more conservative.

2. Keeps performing same tasks expecting different outcomes.
3. Breeds systemic hypocrisy.
4. never grows up and throws child-like temper tantrums when it doesn’t get it’s way.
5. Placates bullies because it is itself a bully.
Feel free to add. There are a billion others.
Bill Ayers may be loony in his beliefs, but he’s actually tolerable as a person in his debates with Dinesh D’Souza. He’s not hysterical.
Ever since Margaret Mead, social sciences have been very open to fraud. Cultural anthropology is the opinion column loosely related to the science of physical anthropology.
He was a terrorist that blew people up!
Toxoplasmosis gondii is a parasitic organism capable of changing the behavior of its host. Anyone unfamiliar with it needs to read up on it, taking note of the estimated global incidence of infection in humans. Does your local liberal own cats?
lady who lives next door has cats. Her whole family is big union dems who love hillary.
Liberalism is a mental illness bump for later...
To be fair, this became normal with Windows.
Cue Bob Uecker’s voice from “Major League”:
“JUUUST a bit outside.”
I know. The comparison was to shrieking Cher and Amy Schumer. They’re Amateur Hour. Bill is much scarier because he’s able to speak well. Plus, Dinesh was willing to share a stage with him, so he recognizes Bill’s civility.
