    At least they would be open and honest about it rather than tap-dancing in an airport bathroom stall then lie about how they actually weren't looking for butt-love.

I think this also manifests in the macho aggressiveness that informs a lot of the gun movement, and a lot of the misogyny that is rampant within conservative movements. Liberal city types with their fancy book learning are, I suppose, anathema to the country farm worker.

    Oh look, we're still arguing Jefferson vs Hamilton, two hundred years later. What a shame the Jeffersonians are still stuck in the 18th century.
    Define mental labor? I don't think studying Useless Studies is very mentally challenging. It was quite pathetic watching my professor with a PhD stumbling all over himself when I rebutted his arguments. Its as if they have never heard someone dispute their accepted ideology before.

    I'm a pre-med student. I am by no means against "fancy city book learning" if that is what you are trying to imply. My life at this point is nothing but fancy book learning. I've taken liberal arts courses. I read their fancy books, and find my self disgusted by how utterly ideological their ideas are. They usually then try to back it up with data, and I find myself further disgusted by how easily I tear apart those arguments, finding flaws in either their data, or their conclusions. I'm by no means hard right, or anti intellectual, and I do have some more liberal viewpoints on certain issues. But what I've seen is academia turn into the handmaiden for left wing politics and radical indoctrination.

    There's a lot more to it than physical strength. Building muscle, stamina, and strength takes a lot of discipline, planning, determination and effort. Someone who has these qualities is less likely to associate with a political ideology that condemns this type of individualism.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Like I said, weight training as an assist, but if it is your primary or only training... you are not as healthy as you think.
    If you really think an Ethiopian marathon runner is the epitome of health and fitness then we just aren't going to agree here.

    You're pretty much just giving your opinion here. Which is fine, if that is what gets you up in the morning to go for a run, then go for it. But if all you do is run 24/7, well, you aren't going to be good at anything athletically but running. Its pretty much the exact same thing as the "meathead" that you so despise.

    I don't think they are. But cardio freaks can almost always best a muscle-head at anyting physical other than pushing a weight. Their bodies are simply built to do more.

    I don't despise meatheads. I just think that very often the more muscles they put on, the more they tend to look down on those without the same meaty goals as themselves. You don't often see cardio freaks being condescending about running a marathon but you could hang out with meat-heads and hear endless talk of "pencil-necks" and how they could beat up someone blah blah blah. Where their world vision is based on who they are and are not bigger than. And that instant respect goes towards those who can push X amount of weight... (which just so happens to be pretty much the whole gist of the originiation of this thread).

    So if it sounds like I'm being condescending the other way around... I guess turn-about is fair play.

    I think those who think they are physically stronger because of their political swing need to post pictures of their biceps. The proof is in the picture.
