Make a little money and it doesn't take long to realize that the Left's definition of "rich" is more than a little open to interpretation and all of a sudden you're on the menu.

I am guessing because one was locked, probably for looking like an ad. It's a shame, really, because the referenced article is quite interesting.

Conservatives tend "to have more intense physical reactions to threatening stimuli."

This stuff is worth thinking about.

Conservatives tend to have intense physical reaction to what they perceive is threatening and everything is threatening.

So they are constantly on alert, looking askance at those who "aren't from around here," and yearning to go back to a time when it felt safer.

Seems that they are afraid of everyone from Lesbians to Libyans.

Is there any way to help Conservatives feel less threatened, less afraid?
"Libyans" ? Obama was afraid of Khadafi and the Libyans enough to destroy their country. No so called Conservatives involved. Actually, no real Liberals involved either. Last I check true Liberals aren't about destroying countries that present no harm to them.

One thing conservatives seem to be really good at is insulting people. I suppose that's part of the fear thing, they fear liberals so they feel they have to insult them.

While Conservatives insult people, supposed Liberals love to invade countries such as Syria, Yemen, and Destroy countries like Libya.

I hardly think conservatives are immune from invading countries.

Oh really? Gee because I have been insulted by Liberals/Progressives on another social media site that disheartened me. I am such a friendly person to everyone as long as you treat me with respect. I would never say anything mean and hurtful to another human being.

So James Bond, I as a conservative do not go around insulting others. I only fear Liberals who follow me all over social media to harass and bully me. They or he gets a kick out of it. I am a 64 yr old female and why does a 30+ yr old Liberal follow around a women whose probably his mother's age?

I'm probably more of a brainarium than the Smithsoniam can handle.

A federal judge interrogated me at the Government's trial:
(re: my claim against being forced to transport opened boxes of biohazards, very dangerous chemicals, explosives and flammables on an open dolly in vehicular traffic on a very narrow road with a dangerous (blind) curve, for 41 days)

Judge: If it was so dangerous, why weren't you killed?

Answer: I'm agile.

Judge: WHAT?

Answer: Agile. A-G-I-L-E, agile.

Judge: Oh.

Zig zag, ziggity zag; zig zag zag.

I was billing the Government for the forced risk.

The judge stared at me and said, "I know where you're going with this."
