I KNEW IT!( YOU JUST KNEW IT WAS TRUE).

Click on link

Folks I was right. I knew that the rightwing brain was different than other brains. It seems that science has proven that rightwingers brains are more geared towards fear and disgust and assholery.I just knew those peoples brain does not fire off right....

Interesting. I think it's quite likely that overexposure to rightwing media causes enlarged amygdala. The brain is pretty much a muscle after all and in rightwing media it seems like most of what they say is just bitching for the sake of bitching.

Like most DBL's they never read the entire article.

"Some uncertainties still remain. Researchers said they are unsure whether or not brain structure actually causes a person to lean one way politically or if the opposite is true--the way people think leads to increased brain activity in different regions. They also noted that people often change political views, which fall in more categories that just liberal and conservative."

However i am reminded of a simple saying. Noting the last sentence from above.

If you are 20 and liberal you are told "thats because you are young." If you are 40 and still liberal you have no brain.

The brain is a muscle. You have to exercise it. Agree with the first posting on that one.

I tend to think we all look at each issue and we can with reason and logic weigh the evidence come out with a informed view. But the key is always looking and willing to be challenged by things you disagree with. That is the problem with some that call themselves conservatives on this blog. Calling me or someone a LDP or a" liberal douche bag" doesn't add to anything it just make you sound stupid.

Winston Churchill quotes...

"Give me the facts, and I will twist them the way I want, to suit my argument."

"I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes. The moral effect should be good … and it would spread a lively terror."

"I am in favor of deliberately spreading methodically prepared bacteria among people and animals -- mildew ... to destroy the harvests, anthrax to destroy horses and livestock, and the plague, in order to kill not only entire armies, but also the inhabitants of large regions."

And some Gnome Chomsky...

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum."

"Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the [U.S.] media."


An interesting quote from Agatha Christie...

"I suppose it is because nearly all children go to school nowadays and have things arranged for them that they seem so forlornly unable to produce their own ideas."


Dr. G. Brock Chisolm said...

"What basic psychological distortion can be found in every civilization of which we know anything? The only psychological force capable of producing these perversions is morality - the concept of right and wrong. The re-interpretation and eventual eradication of the concept of right and wrong are the belated objectives of nearly all of psychotherapy."

Look whos stupid.

" LDP or a" liberal douche bag" "

HUH!!!

LDP does not equal liberal douche bag. Liberal Dumbass Penis maybe.

John said...

This proves my point. You have to
name call me because you really can't debate me or your just stupid.

YOU are not intellectually honest enough to have a debate with.

Heres an example of your dishonesty or a lie.

"The brain is a muscle."

Ummm...any educated person will call bullshit John! I call bullshit.

The brain is an organ. Muscle is of a mesodermal derivative. The brain is ectoderm.

OH!!!! is that a brain cramp John? ROFLMAO!!!

Is the heart an organ or a muscle?

John said...

The brain is a little more complicated than calling it a muscle. My reasoning in saying it's a muscle is that you have to
work out your brain by reading,thinking and learning.

A rational person get what I'm writing about and what I'm saying.The problem is BD isn't rational and needs to argue and name call to make himself feel
important. He isn't and the only person that is having a brain cramp is BD.

Like i said John you are not very honest in debate. Making a statement like you did "The brain is a muscle." and then BACKTRACKING to say ...well, i meant to say and any rational person would know what i meant. Well you are full of it!!! The more accurate statement would be "The brain is (LIKE) a muscle." "You have to exercise it." Well DUUH!!! but it IS NOT A MUSCLE as you clearly stated.!!!

I didnt name call you personally in either post. Another fine example of your dishonesty. Now! go fuck yourself! honest abe...lol

Anthony,

Don't print the last post that I sent to BigDog where I went off on his Butt. Print this!!.

BigDog,

I agree with you that the Brain definition is more complicated than what I gave. My point was that like anything in your body you have to exercise your brain and feed it accurate info. Sometimes that info isn't correct but you are always learning so you are working your brain to find the truth.

I wasn't backtracking!! And as far as FUCKING myself. I don't do request so get over yourself PAL!!!

I am not going to bother reading the article since in most cases what is deemed true today is in ten years reversed. Take Spain it is a liberal paradise run by Socialists and yet the Socialists just got tossed out of office because they ran out of other peoples money to give away to their voting blocks.
Liberals are often blinded by their narcissism as they stand in front of mirrors, saying looking good.
