My favorite St.Louis columnist, Kevin Horrigan, has another excellent column. This time he tries to explain all those damn conservatives.
This is the fourth in an occasional series of essays that attempts to answer the scientific question: “What’s up with all the conservatives around here?” The first one suggested historical reasons for Missouri being a hotbed of right-wing activism: Tea Partiers, conspiracists, militias, birthers, global-warming deniers, Ed Martin voters, etc. It’s because activists tend to sprout in places where lots of transplanted southern and rural white folks come face-to-face with a modern urban environment. The second one suggested that it’s really not conservatives’ fault that they’re the way the are. Some people just don’t have a certain chemical receptor in their brains, so they can’t absorb oxytocin, a brain chemical important for empathy. The third one quoted an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics whose theory is that liberals and atheists are farther along the evolutionary scale than conservatives and religious believers. I stress that all of these merely are theories. I just pass them along in the interest of enlightened public discourse. But every time I write one of these, I get a lot of angry mail from conservatives. But conservatives will like this fourth theory of explaining why they are the way they are, even though it’s based on evolutionary theory, a concept in which many conservatives don’t believe. Jacob M. Vigil of the University of New Mexico reports that Republican sympathizers in a 2008 study group reported having more “good friends” in their social circles (an average of 12.91) than Democratic sympathizers (9.46). This can be explained by the fact that conservatives are oriented toward dominant behavior, he says, so they’re not afraid of having a lot of friends and associates.

The Chief Community Organizer of the US has had his liberal credentials bolstered by the Nobel Committee. While Barrack Hussein Obama intends to help the cause of world peace, he has yet to do anything concrete to advance the cause. Apparently, good intentions are enough for the Nobel Committee. At least when they gave the peace prize to Jimmy Carter, he had negotiated a peace treaty in the Middle East. (How did that work out?) The Obama has made speeches about ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and closing Guantanamo. He has also made speeches about not ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and not closing Guantanamo. While two wars, in which The Obama is the Commander In Chief, continue unabated, his good intentions are enough to earn him a Nobel Peace Prize – the Nobel Committee should be ashamed. Is it possible for their standards to get any lower?

After a mere 6 months, the American electorate is beginning to realize what a major mistake they made by electing as President a Marxist true believer who has only community activist experience. I’m a little shocked that the honeymoon has begun to sour so quickly. We can only hope that there are enough sensible people in Congress to stonewall Obama’s future plans.

When the Messiah is caught talking out of both sides of his mouth, the exceedingly fair editors at AP determine it to be a simple case of Obama’s claims being “adrift”. I’m certain that this treatment is given to all politicians – even conservatives.

With unemployment continuing to climb, many think that real estate is about to dive even lower. Apparently, the Administration’s spending has not helped. I’m sure that they will propose that more spending will fix everything – really – it’ll work.
You know the economy is in trouble when the good news is unemployment increased at a slower rate and pending home sales stood basically still all month. Brace yourself because it looks like the “good news” is going to get much worse, too. Home prices appear to be approaching a valley, though no one can know for sure if they are near a bottom or if they have further to drop. However, credit is still hard to come by, and it is becoming more expensive as interest rates rise on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages.

It took the Obama administration less than eight hours to side with Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega over the ouster of Manuel Zelaya in Honduras. As we have come to expect, Mr. Obama got it wrong again, but this time, nobody noticed.

Last month, we wrote about a lawsuit from JD Salinger over an attempt to publish a “sequel” to Salinger’s famous Catcher in the Rye written by Fredrik Colting under the pseudonym JD California. In a similar case, concerning a “parallel world” for Gone With the Wind, after an initial banning, the book was eventually allowed to be published. You might think that the district court would look at this and recognize that it goes against pretty much all common sense to ban this book… but you’d be wrong. After an initial injunction, the judge has now banned publication of the book.
Yes, you read that right. A US court has banned the publication of a book, even though the creative expression in the book is unique, and it merely uses characters from another book (which it doesn’t even name the same). This is a sickening result for anyone who believes in the First Amendment…
