DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE HONEST?

WHAT THE FUCK?

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.


NOW ABOUT THAT TAX RETURN YOU ARE EXPECTING……

IRS TO DELAY TAX REFUNDS FOR MILLIONS OF LOW INCOME FAMILIES

The Associated Press reported the Internal Revenue Service is delaying tax refund for about 40 million low income families this year. The agency says it is stepping up efforts to fight identity theft and fraud.

It will affect families that it claim the earned income tax credit and the additional child tax credit. These are tax breaks geared to benefit the working poor and many families time both.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stated that he is sensitive to the fact that this is an important and probably biggest check these people will get all year. But he also stated that new laws require the IRS to delay tax refunds for people claiming these credits until February 15. Processing times will delay most of the refunds until the end of February.

The delay is supposedly to give the agency more time to screen the returns for fraud.

The government agency estimates that it issued $3.1 billion in fraudulent tax return so identity thieves in 2014. The year before it says it paid out $5.8 billion in fraudulent returns.

The earned income tax credit is one of the agency’s biggest anti-poverty programs, but they claim and has been plagued by billions and improper claims and payments to fraud every year.

The agency said that they have had to get more aggressive in screening tax returns because the crooks have become increasingly sophisticated through technology. In many of them are on a international level.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK…….

CRIME PAYS IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

SHILOH HEAVENLY QUINE

 

 

A convicted murderer in California, serving a life sentence has received a taxpayer-funded sex- reassignment surgery. Attorneys for the prisoner confirmed on Friday, January 7, 2017, that this has occurred.

Prison officials in California agreed in August 2015 to fund the reassignment for Shiloh Heavenly Quine.

Quine was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom had received a life sentence with no possibility of parole.

This case has led California to be the first in the nation to provide state funded reassignment surgeries. In addition, a federal judge has required California to provide transgender inmates that are housed in men’s facilities with more female orientated items, those being nightgowns, scarves, and necklaces.

The legal representation was done by the transgender Law Center who represents multiple clients that are incarcerated in the state prison system.

The law center has declared this a victory for all transgender people who have been denied the medical care while in prison.

The inmate will be reclassified to a women’s prison after the operation, which was performed at a hospital in San Francisco.

The daughter of Quine’s victim said that she objects to inmates getting taxpayer-funded surgeries that is not readily available to other non-crime committing citizens.

Farida Baig, stated that her dad had begged for his life before he was murdered, and had tried unsuccessfully to block the surgery through the courts. She stated it just makes her dizzy and sick that she is helping to pay for his surgery through her taxes and she is a California resident, and considers it a slap in the face.

Quine and an accomplice kidnapped and fatally shot 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig, a father of three, in downtown Los Angeles in 1980. The suspects sold $80 and his car during a drug and alcohol fueled rampage.

In a written statement, California spokesman Terry Thorton said that California was legally required to pay for the operation.

The eighth amendment of the U.S. Constitution requires that prisons provide inmates with medically necessary treatment for medical and mental health conditions that include diagnosis of gender dysphoria.

California officials had fought the case in the courts for years at an astronomical expense.

Quine had told a prison psychologist that it would bring a drastic, internal completeness, after several suicide attempts in prison.

A spokesman for the federal court appointed official who controls California’s prison medical care system, said the cost of the reassignment surgeries could approach or exceed $100,000, which includes procedures and medications before and after the operation.

The attorneys for the transgender Law Center said the figure was exaggerated.

I personally do not have an issue with the transgender operations that they want to have. I do have an issue with the being paid for by tax dollars at a time where money is a premium in a state, where counties and cities are struggling to make ends meet. This is an elective surgery though I agree is a very emotional issue for this inmate. In addition, I think the daughter of the victim had a very good point where she is paying for this to be done.

Maybe the victim’s family should be compensated for their loss and lack of a future with their father.
