Perseveration in schizophrenia.
Crider A. Source Dept. of Psychology, Williams College, Williamstown, MA 01267, USA.
Abstract:
Perseveration in schizophrenia may take a variety of forms, which can be conceptualized as varying manifestations of an underlying neurocognitive deficit. Comparative studies have demonstrated higher than normal levels of perseverative responding among schizophrenia patients on capacity-demanding tasks, including prompted discourse, reversal learning, and the generation of guessing sequences. There is little evidence that perseveration is associated with deficit signs of schizophrenia. However, perseveration appears to covary with both positive thought disorder and voluntary motor disturbance. Perseveration in schizophrenia thus appears to be a productive sign elicited by a failure to mobilize cognitive resources in situations requiring controlled information processing and the concomitant inhibition of activated but task-inappropriate responses. An information-proces sing model proposed by Shallice (1988) attributes perseveration to a failure of a higher level executive control system to modulate a lower level response selection system under a requirement for novel response generation. This model suggests that perseveration is the consequence of a failure of frontal specification of striatal outputs during controlled processing, resulting in the continued reselection of previously activated outputs
You didn't answer the post. Perhaps you are sufferring from a "productive sign elicited by a failure to mobilize cognitive resources in situations requiring controlled information processing and the concomitant inhibition of activated but task-inappropriate responses. An information-processing model proposed by Shallice (1988) attributes perseveration to a failure of a higher level executive control system to modulate a lower level response selection system under a requirement for novel response generation."

"...lower level response selection system under a requirement for novel response generation."

I would suppose copy and pasting something you don't understand as an accusation rather than answer the post would fit this description.

Now, back to the questions you didn't answer:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched the real-time video of Al Qaeda killing Americans?

And;

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

You could argue his entire beloved state of West Virginia is Unconstitional -

The argument that West Virginia may not be a state rests on the troublesome language of Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution:

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

I guess since Flack was born there he himself is Unconstitutional and possibly not even a U.S. citizen.

Hey Homer!
If UFOS are so much fringe and folly then explain this:
1952-Washington D. C. Buzzed by UFOs
By Billy Booth - About.com Guide
Summary:
"The statement that UFOs normally only appear in desolate areas is definitely not true. Especially considering the 1952 buzzing of the White House, Capitol Building, and the Pentagon. There were basically two separate waves of UFOs over our Capitol. The first occurred on July 19/20, and the second on July 26/27. The sightings were confirmed by ground and airplane radar, and visual reports from pilots sent to validate the objects. Also, photographs were taken, and one of these is included in our Best UFO Photographs Gallery."
This is a Documented, Recorded, Confirmed, Historical Fact of a major UFO Incident.
It cannot be denied, nor explained / reasoned away.

<quoted text>Actually, and I hate to point this out Bush opened the embassy in Libya -
5/15/2006 12:01:00 PM ET
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration said Monday it will restore normal diplomatic relations with Libya for the first time in over a quarter century after deciding to remove Moammar Gadhafi’s country from a list of state sponsors of terrorism.
“We are taking these actions in recognition of Libya's continued commitment to its renunciation of terrorism and the excellent cooperation Libya has provided to the United States and other members of the international community in response to common global threats faced by the civilized world since September 11, 2001,” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a statement.
As part of the process, the United States will open an embassy in Libya, upgrading the current U.S. liaison office in Tripoli.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/12799651/
Bush opened the embassy in Libya because Qaddafi had become compliant and did not present a threat, unlike the radical Islamist mob that Obama installed after murdering Qaddafi.

Don't give a damn about killing a foreign terrorist with or without the permission of the local government, but assassination of an American citizen is different.

One solution would be to revoke the citizenship of the individual first, through some sort of due process.

If you pay that $100 tax bill & the government sends you $10, then you have a extra $10 in your wallet, Flackonomics say these $10's are different.
Maybe the problem is that you don't pay any taxes.
First of all, it's not the government's money. It's my/our money.

How about this.
That 10 dollars is 10 dollars the government didn't take from you.
You earned that 10 dollars. The government isn't "giving" you anything until you get more from the government than you gave to them.
No, it's not an "extra" 10 dollars because that 10 dollars always belonged to you to begin with.
It's an extra 10 dollars if you get an additional 10 dollars worth of food stamps or your welfare check is 10 dollars more.

Maybe I was too technical in earlier attempts to address your perseveration mental illness, let's start here. Note the test mentioned may help you measure the severity of your disability:

Perseveration describes the uncontrollable repetition of a word, phrase, or gesture due to an organic mental illness such as Prader-Willi Syndrome in children, or traumatic brain injury (TBI) in adults. Even when a stimulus in the environment has been removed or stopped, the individual may continue to display actions of perseveration. The word perseveration is related to the word "perserverance," which is the act or instance of repetition.

The inability of ceasing a particular action can range in type. In any of the cases, the individual enters or continues a train of thought that is narrowly focused; in a sense, having tunnel vision. This focus could be on anything from a simple idea to a complex problem. Even if the original problem solving strategy is not the working, the person may not be able to change planes of thinking, suggesting a disability in abstract reasoning. This condition is measurable with the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test.

Virginia had seceeded from the Union at that time and it could be argued that Virginia no longer had jurisdiction over the area.

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.
In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.
Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

conservative economist who worked for Reagan. and check it out. he's cited all the data. i really like this one...
.....if we look at projections from the Congressional Budget Office on January 7, 2009 – while Bush was still in office and which do not incorporate any Obama policies – we see that the deficit was projected to rise from $455 billion in 2008 to $1.2 trillion in 2009 under existing law.
The actual deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.55 trillion. But the difference was due entirely to lower revenues than expected, not higher spending. Outlays in fiscal year 2009 actually came in below CBO’s projection –$3,518 billion actual vs. a projection of $3,543 billion.

More Bush-Bashing, eh? This guy points to a deficit incurred during Bush's last year and then ignores what the Boy Messiah has done since. The graph contains mostly projections(4/5ths?) which, in the world of economics, is routinely, unofficially laughed at.
Aside from the runaway(and, according to the author, supposedly harmless)interest, everything appears to be relatively smooth all the way to the next century!

This is laughable.....and they lived happily ever after:]

Post the goddam time line. Let's see it.

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And, again, just how much of an idiot are you...

The Treasury Department is not a source of money. It is a repository of money that has been collected from a source of money. To answer the question, you have to identify a source of money.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
