    It was not in the article but the study itself. Articles summarizing studies often generalize with headlines to attract attention and leave out important parts of the study.

    In another thread the article claimed a study found conservative men are more insecure in their masculinity than liberal men. But, when you read the actual study, it was an internet poll (not representative) which was based on Google searches. It found conservative men were more likely (to say) they would do a search for terms like erectile dysfunction. They concluded that meant the men were more insecure.

    It could also mean 1) conservative men were more honest in admitting that they would search for that term 2) liberal men don't care if they have erectile dysfunction (which says something about their masculinity) or 3) conservative men were older and more likely to experience the problem.

    money cant buy happiness
    Everybody wants enough money to be reasonably secure and comfortable.
    Only degenerate sociopaths want gold plated toilets.
    In my opinion, after one achieves a reasonable amount of financial security, true happiness is derived from self-improvement, self-enlightenment, spiritual growth, and service to family, friends, and community.

    How could anybody be comfortable in all that impersonal gilded splendor? There's nothing the least bit "homey" about it.

    ...trump had one overriding problem that Dowd knew but could not bring himself to say to the president: "You're a fucking liar."

    I don't get it.

    It is beyond garish and tasteless.

    It says a lot about Trump, his character, and his taste, that he has an affinity for the gaudy, the lurid, and the grotesquely ostentatious.

    Those pictures make me laugh, no wonder the blue bloods ignore him, though he desperately wants them to include him.
    "An elective despotism was not the government we fought for, but one which should not only be founded on true free principles, but in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among general bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others." Thomas Jefferson

    We don't have "blue bloods" in America, imbecile.

    Cite your evidence that "he desperately wants them to include him."
