DAMN RIGHT! Swearing makes you
‘happier, healthier, more intelligent

The Sun (UK), by Amanda Devlin

Experts claim using offensive language shows someone has a larger vocabulary and could be linked with a higher IQ. There are also said to be many health benefits to using a naughty word or two. It´s believed swearing increases circulation and releases endorphins - making you feel happier. While it also allows you to communicate exactly how you feel about something as you feel more able to be honest. By swearing, a person can express fury, loathing or pain, without the threat of the argument turning physical. It was also suggested that those who swore more often were less likely

See, people who cuss in public are not uncouth dullards who lack the capacity to reason, they are actually our brain trust.
See that guy shambling down the street cursing? He is smarter than you are. Don´t let the shabby clothes and smell convince you otherwise. Also, rap performers are the go-to source for philosophy and for lifestyle choices.

All it makes you is vulgar and classless, and it demonstrates your lack of self-control. But if you prefer to believe the lie, go ahead and swear. Nobody is going to stop you.

The constant dropping of F bombs and other vulgarity is toxic. There are people who can´t express themselves any other way and I don´t want to be within earshot of them.

Nothing like a good causation inversion to get the morning juices flowing. The studies show that smarter people swear a bit, not that people who swear are smarter.

Richard Pryor, an epic swearer (especially early in his career), noted that there is always a more-effective word to use, and that using profanity was the lazy way out.

My language can get a bit salty at times, but not in public, not at work, not in front of children.

Swearing is like cayenne pepper. A bit may season a dish, but too much ruins it.

Well, I´ve been known to drop a curse word or two when I stub my toe or spill an entire bag of flour on the floor. It does make me feel a whole lot better, but not really any smarter. I don´t, however, do it in public.

Given the publisher of the article (The Sun) I´m not at all surprised. My life partner is British and to hear her talk, one would think she had trucker/sailor/longshoreman for parents. I used to be a sailor myself. I know all the words and in fact have invented a few myself.
I choose to not use them any longer. If a person in a heated conversation or negotiation lets one or two slip it doesn´t bother me, shows the depth of their passion.

I have been and can be as foul mouthed and guttural as anyone, but after recommitting myself to God, I choose not to be. I´ll occasionally slip up, but feel badly when I do. It´s a matter of self control and civility, and it serves no useful purpose. As others have stated, research done to make the ill-mannered and rude feel better about themselves.

During the 1960 presidential election, candidate Kennedy told this story at the Al Smith dinner:

And I know after fourteen years in the Congress with the Vice-President that he was very sincere in his views about the use of profanity. But I am told that a prominent Republican said to him yesterday in Jacksonville, Florida, “Mr. President, that was a d-mn fine speech." And the Vice-President said, “I appreciate the compliment but not the language.” And the Republican went on, “Yes sir, I liked it so much that I contributed a thousand dollars to your campaign.” And Mr. Nixon replied, “The h-ll you say.”

Cursing does have its uses, particularly when I´m speaking to my computer, which is balky sometimes. (It gets damned to perdition on a regular basis, but no one else hears.) In public I very rarely abuse the King´s English, preferring to be known as a gentleman, even to rude strangers. Cusswords are intensifiers, useful only if they are seldom used. If they´re abused they lose their sting.

I know some people who can´t say, "I´m going down to 7-Eleven and buy a package of Ding Dongs" without slipping in a a few bad words. They sound dirty.

Very rarely you encounter someone totally proficient in profanity, who makes everyone laugh when he cusses. I´ve met about four of these people in my entire life. I´m still laughing remembering what they cussed about. It´s a very human trait, and we are all in need of forgiveness sometimes. Doggone it.

Alternate viewpoint: "Profanity is the effort of a feeble mind to express itself forcibly."

My father was the smartest man I´ve ever known, and I rarely heard even a "damn!" from him. His expressions were more cerebral.

I don´t understand some of the unwritten cuss-word decorum, however. For example, why is "crap" perfectly acceptable, in mixed company, according to the FCC, etc., but the synonymous "s**t" is verboten?

A Pennsylvania-based company that claims to be the last American manufacturer of steel beer kegs might be driven out of business by the tariffs that President Donald Trump imposed last week. On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel imported into the United States (plus a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum). The tariff will help steel makers at the expense of steel-consuming businesses like American Keg of Pottstown, Pennsylvania. "Tariffs will inadvertently drive the price of American steel higher," CEO Paul Czachor tells Philly.com´s Sam Wood. "Within a year, we might have to raise our

One of the ironies of trade protectionism is that tariffs and import quotas are what we do to ourselves in times of peace and what foreign nations do to us with blockades to keep imports from entering our country in times of war. Or consider that we impose sanctions on U.S. enemies such as North Korea, Russia, and Iran because we want them to feel the economic pain of being deprived of imports. But now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. If ever there were a crisis of logic

Can Americans overcome hurdles to changing this country´s gun culture and the laws regulating firearms? There may be a path to accomplishing just that—but it´s unlikely that anybody would like the results. Let´s look back from a possible future… The strategy that gun controllers finally settled on was to shift the culture to make firearms ownership socially unacceptable. Then, legal changes would be possible. "I think we have to cleanse our culture of this false idea that guns are cool," gun opponents wrote. "Guns are not cool. Cool kids don´t use guns." Others agreed, and they all pointed to an

Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks marijuana may be a gateway to prescription opioid and heroin addiction.

Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event last night in honor of the late Ronald Reagan´s birthday, Sessions lamented the "permissive rhetoric" and media coverage surrounding marijuana and other drugs. "We don´t think illegal drug use is ´recreation.´ Lax enforcement, permissive rhetoric and the media have undermined the essential need to say no to drug use. Don´t start," Sessions said.

The alleged success of the California model is one of the more intense controversies in the nerdier corners of public-policy debate. For many progressives, California’s metastasizing liberalism proves you can have Scandinavian-style social policies and tax rates and still have robust economic growth. For conservatives, California is like a bumblebee. On paper, the damn thing shouldn’t be able to fly — and yet it does. Thus the cottage industry on the right of prophesizing California’s inevitable demise. What’s always bothered me about the whole argument is how it leaves out important factors.

According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy.

In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton.

"There’s a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment” brought against the President, Rep. Green said.
