BOOK TITLES

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/07/2008

keep getting longer and longer.  I particularly like this one:

Makers and Takers:  Why conservatives work harder, feel happier, have closer families, take fewer drugs, give more generously, value honesty more, are less materialistic and envious, whine less ..and even huge their children more than liberals

The title is base on all sorts of social scientific data points, including these:

* Seventy-one percent of conservatives say you have an obligation to
care for a seriously injured spouse or parent versus less than half (46
percent) of liberals.

* Conservatives have a better work ethic and are much less likely to call in sick than their liberal counterparts.

*
Liberals are 2½ times more likely to be resentful of others’ success
and 50 percent more likely to be jealous of other people’s good luck.

* Liberals are 2 times more likely to say it is okay to cheat the government out of welfare money you don’t deserve.

*
Conservatives are more likely than liberals to hug their children and
“significantly more likely” to display positive nurturing emotions.

* Liberals are less trusting of family members and much less likely to stay in touch with their parents.

*
Do you get satisfaction from putting someone else’s happiness ahead of
your own? Fifty-five percent of conservatives said yes versus only 20
percent of liberals.

* Rush Limbaugh, Ronald Reagan, Bill
O’Reilly and Dick Cheney have given large sums of money to people in
need, while Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore, and Al Gore have
not.

* Those who are “very liberal” are 3 times more likely than conservatives to throw things when they get angry.
