Have you ever noticed that some products have a general, but not universal, divide in political alignment?

Liberals: Toyota Prius, Subaru, Apple-anything, multiple auto bumper stickers

Conservatives: Ford trucks, Android and other non-Apple devices and computers,

What's with that? I can almost see the Prius attachment, but many conservatives own non-Prius hybrids. Apple got a big launch in academic circles, an area long dominated by liberals, so perhaps the association continues.

Let's not turn this into a bash contest, but perhaps others have noticed the same thing in other products. I'll split this into another thread on Off Topic if needed.

Goodnight, from bad docking to pathetic operating systems. This thread has everything.

Don't forget that Prius drivers have sorry looking refrigerators like this too.

Republicans and democrats are usually discernible by mode of dress and hair style.

Crack heads and drunks are usually discernible by skin color and amount of tooth decay.

Cops off duty display their training by eye movement as locations change.

Truck drivers usually have left arm tanner than right.

Employed concrete workers often have dry split skin on finger tips and hands.

Cigarette smokers may cough and have yellowed teeth/fingernails.

Gay radar often works because that type of internal intent may exude in body portion movements as well as voice patterns.

Over or incorrect eaters can be easily identified; as too can in-shape people be recognized.

Funny how most people wear their badges simply by how their mind makes their life evolve... and their daily actions therefore result.

PS: Politicians can usually be easily recognized by having what their lips move for producing words with completely different meanings and outcomes.

Just sayen!

Funny...there's a bunch of Republicans AND Democrats in the military...and all of them look alike....

Come to think of it there are plenty of gays too.

Wow... lots of characteristics of all types in those who all tend to look alike and shift their eyes in certain environments...

My hands were always dry and cracked after ocean survival training.....

Just like most things in boating...can't tell hardly anything from anything else...or even a majority of similar opinions....

But, in here....we all have a love for boating, boats, water, and the camaraderie that comes with it...isn't that enough? Do the politics really matter? Not to me.

Actually I don't see it much anymore where people just fit perfectly under a label. Maybe it's our friends and those we spend time with. I know my wife and I sure don't fit patterns.

How about a place for independent thinkers? It amazes me how anyone can agree with one party or one politician 100% of the time and the number of votes in Congress that follow party lines. It's like the person rated to vote liberal or conservative 100% of the time. Don't they know how to think for themselves? Don't they have any conflict of thoughts?

Now, my Windows and Android and non-Apple heritage doesn't come from my political or social leanings. It comes from a business background which was and is dominated by Windows. Now in the internet age, a lot of Linux. Another reason I went Android long ago was the number of web sites using Flash which iPhone's and Pad's can't handle.

I laugh at some of the perceptions. All businessmen are conservative Republicans...lol. How do you explain the supreme businessman of our time, Warren Buffett, then.

Of course, I was just speaking in generalizations. You're right, many of us...perhaps most of us...don't fit neatly into one category or another.

And there seems to be an inordinate number of Prius drivers going well below the average freeway speed in the left lane! What's up with that?

BINGO!

As I communicate with Sandia, UCB, ASU, LightWorks and many other organizations... Windows is the baby I need to have. I tried Apple briefly some years ago. Not to my liking. Apple guru's were stumped as to how some communication hurdles could be overcome... in reality - they simply couldn't!

They drive in the left lane with their right turn indicator flashing too yet never seem to go that direction...

Hmmm, if we could only find a Prius driving slow boater. No no, that's silly. Only a fast boater could fit that description.

Actually my parents had a Pinto, Oliver. It didn't catch on fire and explode or anything. They bought it old and very used. They stopped making those things about when I was born.

I've noticed that too but I've been spending quite a bit of time with an old friend who is having difficulty selling his boat. We've tried just about everything but can't get it passed the surveyor.
