Foul-mouthed people may be the most honest

by Marty Carlson

Somebody recently sent me an article from a publication in the UK citing new research suggests that people who refrain from swearing may often be the most dishonest and devious.

Others who are fond of blunt honesty through profanity are likely to be the most honest in any given group. This is per the academics at the University of Cambridge.

The study asked 276 participants to list their favorite swearword to gauge how fond they were of colorful language.

They were given a survey asking them to agree or disagree with statements such as “I never lie” and “all my habits are good” to assess their propensity for mistruths.

One of the authors of the study said the correlation may stem from constraints imposed by social convention. Citing if you’re trying to follow the short social norms than seeing what you really feel, you are saying what people want to hear.

With that in mind he states you are not being very honest.

It must be noted they did not look at extreme dishonesty such as fraud, so it is still a question there is other links to more extreme behavior.

Apparently though the findings corroborate research in the United States that states that A high level of swearing that there is an honesty level of lower crime.

Citing some states like New Jersey, with a lot of people that use profanity regularly, they were found to rank highly on this state integrity index. And states like Utah and other similar places where bad language is a relatively rarity saw higher levels of fraud or similar offenses.

One author also stated that “at least people who swear are telling you what they really think.”

He also added “if people actually said what they think all the time, would that really be a good thing?”

DAWG Fucking thinks so.

The researchers also examined 75,000 Facebook postings, and said there was a similar correlation to the findings. Citing that people who regularly posted short, simple messages were the least likely to swear.

Researchers claim simple statements are already known to be associated with dishonesty, because liars find it hard to make up complicated sentences.

In my personal experiences, I find that to be a very true statement.

The study was published in the Journal of social psychological and personality science.

So please tell me “WHAT THE FUCK” you guys think.

Recent events in the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office has led to some interesting revelations occurring in our District Attorney’s Office.

The Stanislaus District Attorney’s Office has had a massive turnover in the last six months to a year where experienced prosecutors have moved on to other areas or private practice. Information I received this week is that they have hired about 8 to 10 new attorneys with only one of them having prior trial experience, most are very young probably right out of law school. Apparently, they like to teach them young on how to do things the way they like them done, and as we have seen in the Frank Carson et al. case it is not all done by the book.

Also, this week there has been an email sent out by Birgit Fladager states their requirements regarding the marijuana possession law that was recently passed by the voters.

This email stated that all marijuana convictions in Stanislaus County, even if it’s an infraction conviction, will require the defendant to submit to a DNA test to be kept in a database. My understanding that this is something for Stanislaus County only and not in the laws passed by the voters of the state.

It appears this administration of the District Attorney’s Office here in Stanislaus County wants to continue maintaining a vice grip on the community instead of just administering justice, along with this they have a great love for wiretaps that do not lead to convictions, and body wires that listen in on attorney client conversations constantly.

Trust me I am not anti-law enforcement but I strongly endorse the fact that law enforcement needs to do their job in a proper manner that works with the people not against the community it serves.

Also, keep in mind in recent years the government has required that all newborn babies are tested for a DNA profile and it is stored in a database for future reference.

The affordable care act, also known as Obama care, has also put in provisions of that act that waves our HIPPA rights that we have been afforded over the years as a protection of privacy and now no longer exists. I have confirmed through sources that medical billing offices are receiving demographic information in regards to patients, patient’s spouses, parents, relatives, or anyone else attached or responsible for that patient. Not to mention what is done to insurance premiums.

This demographic is not general information for particular diseases or age groups etc. but contains specific information like names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, phone numbers, addresses, and other specific information.

The things happening here in Stanislaus County, California, and in our country, can only happen if we stand still and let them happen. We can make change with people working together instead of against each other all the time, there’s strength in numbers and solidarity.


Recent events in this country seem to brought out some interesting developments in behavior patterns of some people.

There’s a new phenomenon growing across this country that is a pattern of pathological dissociative behavior that seemed to start emanating in the late hours of November 8, 2016. It seemed to be increasing in severity over time. Is becoming to be known as Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder which manifests itself was sudden bouts of rage, uncontrollable crying, extreme sadness, and the wanting to rent a U-Haul.

Anyone suffering from Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder sometimes tend to have a persistent unwillingness to accept someone is willing to make America great again.

According to the DSM-V&VI individuals with this disorder exhibit many of the following symptoms:

Telling others there moving to Canada, but then don’t do it,

Fixated on the never before concern of the electoral college,

Protesting election with no source of information to protest the outcome,

Loud and boisterous calls “someone should do something”,

And the unwillingness to actually go out and vote themselves during the election,

Some people believe that the TARD syndrome may be untreatable and could increase in intensity and length of time it persists.

In time and with a little effort on everyone’s part maybe we can start coming together as a country one day instead of fighting all the time,

As one late great philosopher put it “can’t we all just get along?”
