Actually Carol there have been studies comparing liberal and conservative brains and it turns out that conservatives are more rigid in their thought processes and liberals more flexible and creative.
"...Political conservatism is promoted when people rely on low-effort thinking. When effortful, deliberate responding is disrupted or disengaged, thought processes become quick and efficient; these conditions promote conservative ideology… low-effort thought might promote political conservatism because its concepts are easier to process, and processing fluency increases attitude endorsement.
Four studies support our assertion that low-effort thinking promotes political conservatism... Our findings suggest that conservative ways of thinking are basic, normal, and perhaps natural."
Scott Eidelman, PhD, Christian S. Crandall, PhD, Jeffrey A. Goodman, PhD, and John C. Blanchar, "Low-Effort Thought Promotes Political Conservatism," Society for Personality and Social Psychology, 2012
Yes Carol, conservatives are lazy thinkers and don't want to put effort into thinking things out.
Problem with studies is who's doing them. I could show you as many studies proving just the opposite.

What's wrong with "normal", "basic" and "natural" thinking anyway?

Liberals could use a little of all three. Just throw in some common sense and perspective.

Unfortunately, if he's not a surfer with a very good paying job and willing to pay significantly higher premiums and deductibles, he'll be without insurance under ObamaCare too. He'll just go to the ER like everyone else.
What's your point? You do know people have to actually sign up to get costly insurance under ObamaCare? And they can say 'no thanks'?
My point is that perfectly healthy people often need costly medical care.

What's yours?

Obamacare Enrollments Surpass 1 Million

"Everybody talks about how horrible this website is and all the glitches and stuff, but I tell you, it was the best experience I ever had shopping for insurance," said Rawlings, who owns an architectural design firm. Rawlings chose the highest level of coverage, a Platinum plan that includes dental benefits, for $550 a month, or about $50 more than he pays for a medical-only policy for just himself this year. He earns too much to qualify for tax credits to reduce his premiums.

Rawlings has been buying his own health insurance since starting his own business more than a decade ago and didn't miss having to disclose his medical history and wait weeks for an approval -- or rejection. Nor did he yearn for paying higher rates because of a pre-existing condition he has, he said. "I have just been waiting for the Affordable Care Act to kick in," he said.

It's all they've got, sadly enough. Their cupboard is bare. They have nothing else to offer of any substance.
Conservatives are already preparing for the next round of pre-election liberal wars.
You'd think they could win on policy without starting all these wars that don't exist.
lol! Right. And so, their platform is 'we hate liberals.'

That'll show the public what you stand for!

Its kind of cute the way you dumbasses stick together.

But no, Ted Cruz did NOT filibuster the ACA as originally posted.

He filibustered t a spending bill that cost our economy 24 billion dollars all for nothing.

You people are all dumber than sh*t.

I don't think Michelle appreciated Obama flirting with the cute blonde.
He's going to hear about that for a long time. Might be time for her to go on a fact finding tour somewhere, anywhere. LMAO!!!

Does she think these boards are her personal property?
Commenting on you losers who spend you days and nights on Topix infuriates you, doesn't it nitwit??

Now you're trying to tell Lily what she can post here??

"Do you think these boards are her personal property?"

That's the same Gestape tactic you nitwits use when caught being stupid, which is constant.

Why don't you have anyone to spend those cold MN nights with, instead of smoking cigarettes and posting nonsene on Topix day and night.

It's good of Lily to point out your social isolation. It explains how you got so unhinged.

But then, you're a woman qwho thinks it's cute to call male posters 'she', proving your own self-loathing vag status.
