RE: Republicans are Smarter and Better Educated than Democrats
Looks like I pegged its meter. Crummy test if its meter only goes so high. Can something with an inadequately scaled meter even be trusted? Hmmm. Tongue

That's usually an error code indicating you blew a circuit.

If I had to guess, I'd say IQ tests depend on literacy, which depends on educational systems and children's health, which depend on the value placed on public education and community information programs put in place by the political powers. Schools often don't teach the value of critical thinking, and I think this and religious indoctrination often account for behaviors by people like Bachmann, Palin and Shimkus. Donald Trump is just an asshole attention whore who likes to stir the pot. Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell are another type of animal altogether. Pure politics. Smart... like a fox, and able to feign stupidity to identify with their constituents.Yes

IQ should be a measure of the ability to survive and adapt through problem solving to overcome changing physical surroundings and psychological challenges. Praying for solutions to one's problems stifles much of this process.

Here is a free IQ test on line. It's fairly typical from my experience with such tests--just 20 questions and kind of fun to take. You will notice that for many questions it depends crucially on skills you likely learned in school or through certain talents specific to skills you might happen to have acquired through your hobbies or from friends. These skills do not necessarily relate to "intelligence", but rather to the ability to read, to sit still in a classroom and accept what a teacher tells you--understanding that someone may know more than you do. Although we often say "He's smart" about someone who spouts memorized facts, intelligence is actually the subsequent integration of learned skills into one's daily life to avoid harm and enable procreation, not just having memorized a lot of material.

Well...that doesn't work but I got a score of 141

RE: Republicans are Smarter and Better Educated than Democrats
Yeah, Republicans are so much smarter! Just look at Kansas! Their governor made massive tax cuts for the rich, driving the state into a huge hole of debt. Yet, they still reelected him, and now that he has made huge cuts to public sectors, especially education (as if people in Kansas weren't stupid enough already), he still has a huge debt to contend with. So guess who will get their taxes raised to make up for it? Yup! The working class!

Well, the people of Kansas are really fucked now, and I don't feel one ounce of sympathy, either.

I adore it when people make broad sweeping comments as Res has.
