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

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?

After the Gun Ban

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

The Post reports that the company, which has annual revenues of more than $1 billion, is less than six months away from $375 million of senior secured notes reaching maturity; another $145 million in bank loans will be due immediately if those notes, issued in 2013, are not refinanced by July 23.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks marijuana may be a gateway to prescription opioid and heroin addiction. In fact, a number of academic studies show lower rates of opioid abuse and overdoses in states that have legalized medical marijuana. 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.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced today that his office will proactively expunge and seal the records of misdemeanor marijuana offenders, the San Francisco Chroniclereports. The office will also resentence offenders who received a felony pot conviction. Proposition 64, the 2016 referendum item that legalized recreational marijuana in California, allows pot offenders to petition for resentencing if their crime would have received a different penalty, or no penalty at all, under the new law. Rather than wait for petitions, Gascón´s office is searching for eligible cases. "The district attorney said his office will dismiss and seal more than 3,000

Does the California Model

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. For me, the biggest one was always geography

"I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

The 85-year-old Arizonan—an unrepentant birther, nativist, and whiny baby—told the Washington Examiner that he will run on a platform of supporting the agenda of President Donald Trump, who pardoned Arpaio last year after a federal judge held the ex-sheriff in criminal contempt. "I have a lot to offer. I´m a big supporter of President Trump," Arpaio told the paper. "I´m going to have to work hard; you don´t take anything for granted.

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:
