I'd estimate that 7/8 ths of the left-hander I know are liberal Democrats. Seven of the last 13 left-handed Presidents, starting with FDR were Democrats. (BTW - Considering that only 10-13% of the population is left-handed that's a HUGE percentage of left-handers who have become Presidents.) That aside, if we look at Congress, I wonder if there are more left-handed Democrats compared to Republicans. If you're left-handed and don't mind stating your political leanings, it might be fun to see, at least among hubpage writers.
sort by best latest
Christin, ultimately probably has no bearing (like most of my questions - LAM - is there a "laughing at myself" abbreviation? ) Darn, I was ready to make some great discovery.
Another left-hander! Yay! Do you know we actually have our own International Holiday? It's Aug. 13th, International Left-Handers Day.
Hi Billie... I am not aware of that but I sure would be glad to see a supermarket chain selling mirror-image products, more than anything else, LOL.
Walter, I bought a left-handed corkscrew at Lefty's in SF. I LOVE it! Sometimes, when I have new people over, I ask them to open a bottle of wine and hand them my left-handed corkscrew. It's hilarious and they have a good laugh at themselves.
Billie Kelpin, you are lucky. I'm living in a third world country, LOL.
I know so little about the world. I forget that I might not be respectful on this website. I hope I am
Billie Kelpin, not at all! It's good to share and thanks for sharing.
So fine, Mitch. another dis-proof of my goofy assumptions. Drats! I'm losing 2 to1 here. If I add MY statistics of two closest friends and me being way left and you and Christin's (1-1).we're at 4-2. I DO need to stop this sillyiness n get to WORK!
I'm losing big time here, Duffsmom, with my assumption. I love being right, but I think I'm wrong on this one. You can still celebrate International Left Handers Day with us... :) (I'm beginning to want to celebrate SOMETHING with my hub friends!
exactly right, Connorj. And President Obama is also disappointing Progressives leaning much farther right than Progressives would prefer.
I thought this was interesting: "The Latin word for "left-handed" is "sinister.” Since a left-handed person could shake hands and still have their strong hand available to harm the other person, they were thought of as sinister, or danger
connorj - so many interesting facts on left-handers. We tend to have more back pain because of functioning in a rt. handed world, but for some odd reason, I LOVE being left-handed. I have peeps!
You hit hard; my peepless self is crestfallen and I am now trying to be ambidextrous even though I will be "villianfied..."
Connorj, Well, you can be my hub peep
Drats, I'm losing this one! There goes my assumptions out the window. Thanks for checking in AEvans
Bhawna, Thank you for your perspective. When you realize that left-handed people compose merely 10-15 percent of the population, and see their numbers in the entertainment industry and recently as US Presidents, it's says SOMETHING abt. this group!
I'm becoming DEPRESSED! This is the trend people are reporting. My 3 liberal left-handed friends and I seem to be in the minority. Now I have to search for a whole NEW Theory! Thanks Motown for checking in. LOVE the hub name:)
