You decide:

I suppose it could be worse... it could be raining.

It could be worse ... you might start another thread.

Are there similarities between this fictional alien goddess and Diana ? Apart from being female, bespectacled and fit ?

Is this thread going somewhere ?

I would put it in the chuckle category. I just couldn't resist. Now... on to more important things.

Did Diana babble like a toddler??




Rather, Palin is given to meandering phraseology of a kind suggesting someone more commenting on impressions as they enter and leave her head rather than constructing insights about them. Or at least, insights that go beyond the bare-bones essentials of human cognition — an entity (i.e. something) and a predicate (i.e. something about it). [...]

This reminds me of toddlers who speak from inside their own experience in a related way: they will come up to you and comment about something said by a neighbor you’ve never met, or recount to you the plot of an episode of a TV show they have no way of knowing you’ve ever heard of. Palin strings her words together as if she were doing it for herself — meanings float by, and she translates them into syntax in whatever way works, regardless of how other people making public statements do it.

Oh, by the way... if you haven't heard:

California to Investigate Sarah Palin Speaking Contract

"California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. said late Tuesday his office will look into accusations that officials at a state university violated public records laws when they refused to reveal the financial details of a contract with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to speak at an upcoming university fundraiser, and allegedly shredded documents related to the agreement."

Man you guys are the laughing stock of ATS, no wonder Liberalism is being acknowledged as a mental disease. You guys never make any sense.

Beyond your favorite radio and TV entertainers (experts that they are) please back-up your slur. As a clinical psychologist, I'd have to disagree. In fact, the lack of empathy is a hallmark of sociopathy, and boy do conservatives love to dis empathy. Furthermore, being a 'ditto-head' sounds like some type of disorder to me, but maybe we'll have to wait for the DSM V1 for an official classification.

I'm not a liberal, a conservative or a libertarian. I don't subscibe to any political ideology at all. Except maybe Rand's "Objectivism", in bits and pieces. I don't vote. It's all a racket. But there's humor in anything.

Dear prionace glauca,
I'm sure the new DSM will have scores of new diagnoses. Everyone has to be able to be diagnosed with something so the pharmacutical indusrtry can continue to make the big bucks. It's all a racket as well.

I totally, totally agree. Classification and study definitely has its place, but the field is so utterly tainted by the for profit insurance industry. It's pathetic. Drugs have their place too, but the field of psychiatry is even worse.

Wow, does your professional classification even mean anything? Actually it makes me worry now that I think about it a little more. Most professional would sometimes overlook their own ills especially when they think they know better, as you being in the field you are. Healthcare industry professionals are notorious for self diagnosing and implementing a self treatment.

Huh? I think I understand the slurs you are trying to make, but you are babbling only slightly more coherently than Palin. Anyway, I worked hard for my doctorate, what's your claim to expert status?

I have to agree with skunknuts, that conservatives are less empathetic. Why do you suppose that is, since most conservatives claim so-called "Christian" values. I never could understand that.

Slurs? I haven't thrown out any slurs out there. Is "Ditto-Head" considered one?
Not trying to make this a sword fight and take away from this very useful thread you guys have going on over here. Does knowing what I do in my profession merit your point or stance? Lets just say I can write the prescriptions you can't.

Isn't there a rule against political baiting? That's this entire thread.

Palin makes me cringe, I'm no fan. But your thread went from zero to Nazi claims in one post.

As a conservative and former Republican, I find Sarah Palin disturbing. I wouldn't let her do my grocery shopping, much less vote for her. Defending her lack of, well, everything, I don't understand how anyone can support this media creation.

Check these out and see if they ring true:

Whiners grow up to be conservatives

www.latimes.com...



Politically conservative agendas may range from supporting the Vietnam War to upholding traditional moral and religious values to opposing welfare. But are there consistent underlying motivations?

Four researchers who culled through 50 years of research literature about the psychology of conservatism report that at the core of political conservatism is the resistance to change and a tolerance for inequality, and that some of the common psychological factors linked to political conservatism include:

* Fear and aggression
* Dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity
* Uncertainty avoidance
* Need for cognitive closure
* Terror management
