Brain structure differs in liberals, conservatives: study | The Raw Story

I think we all knew this. ;^)


Brain structure differs in liberals, conservatives
"Liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear, said the study on Thursday in Current Biology."

Funny, Funny stuff.

Assuming this scientist is not part of the same brain trust that thought corn ethanol was good science...

Just what do liberals want to use this alleged "complexity" resource for? (For instance...bullying a farmer over the right kind of grass to plant?)

If "complexity" equals the incurable need for power over everyone else with constant expanding government...

If that is the case, that is not "complexity", its properly labeled "megalomania".

Conservatives, generally, value individuality and the right to be let alone from government, so yes they could "fear" losing that to megalomaniacs.

Its funny how these scientists come up with the labels for their analysis. I bet their was no science to that.

Right away, there is an invalid assumption that conservatives cannot be complex. Have you read conservative vs. liberal blogs? Liberal blogs have mostly been an uncomplex, emotional screed, the last few months, not understanding anything outside the government union.

So are you claiming the tainted political religion in this article is "science"?

And calling someone a "zombie" is an original leftist talking point?

I need backhoe to scoop all the irony of your statement.

"I need backhoe to scoop all the irony of your statement."

Yes, that's more original.

What is left by your definition?

How do you know I am left?

How far left?

Left legally?

Left morally?

Left economically?

Left religiously?

Left handed?

Left standing?

Left holding the bag?

Good to see your ice cream sales are picking up.

I hate the animated big lips dairy queen commercials. They are so sterile compared to Culvers. Can't you do something about this? Show some happy old people with their grand kids and maybe a young couple in love eating ice cream with seductive smiles?

I was merely asserting that calling my point of view, defending those that defend a less government point of view, "zombies" is a classic liberal/progressive tactic.

A few think, somehow, "zombie" is a cleaver variation of calling someone stupid.

Not original at all. The insult you used is almost as "zombie" like as using the term "teabagger".

I'm not asserting you are leftist, just exposing the intellectually void leftisit tactic you used.
