    Since we are using science, where are the methods used to construct this study? I did not see them.
    Why is it so biased?
    This "scientific" study is an insult to scientific standards.

    Well, from the report, it's a meta-analysis which means that it's compiling its data from various articles, each of which may have its own bias. There are ways to control for bias which you'll just have to analyze the article (not the report of the article) for yourself to determine if its valid.

    To call something biased and unscientific without investigating further first is a little excessive, n'est-ce pas? It's like saying, "I didn't see the moon so therefore it doesn't exist." A reprint of that article is available.

    Things I like about this thread:

    1. q1w2e3 used the word "meta"
    2. the psychologytoday.com blog receives record page views
    3. inconsequential flame war between conservatives and liberals
    4. I've been complimented

    Well, he didn't say "meta", he said "meta-analysis".

    I found this on facebook.

    I also like it when people take time in these threads to flirt. It restores my hope.

    Nah, they don't. It gives them a feeling of power in their pitiful excuse for a life.

    I'll compare my life with yours any day of the week, snidebitch.

    And I'll win.

    Now...get me my fucking peanuts, stew.

    This from the guy whose thread production frequency of anti Liberal / Democratic rants are comparable to chronic explosive diarrhea.

    Liberals love to insult and bash conservatives, mostly because they have nothing to present in a debate. Thats what people do when they become insecure and dont have an argument, they start bashing and insulting others. For example, I am a tea party member, I love it when I get called a teabagger by the left, because they are putting out negative energy, which helps our (the tea party's) cause.

    Nice to see you've returned, greg.

    And, yes - voting for a Republlican candidate considering the record of epic failure they ran up during the Bush administration - truly would be INSANE.

    Like most of what the right-wingers put out, this is bald-faced lie.

    Facts and analysis based on facts have been repeatedly presented with _no_ attempt by the right-wingers to actually address the facts.

    Instead they say socialist! liberal! and repeat the same lies.

    Just like this one.

    "because they have nothing to present in a debate" is a lie. As I stated above. Your ideology is getting in the way of your reading comprehension.
