I am sure "Gunner" will slap you around a bit for your stupid post, but as to president nobama's lies?
- I will close Gitmo. He did not. He lied
- The unemployment rate will not exceed 8% if my stimulus bill is passed. He lied
- I have visited all 57 states. He lied
The above are not lies? We all know you will have an excuse for each of nobama's lies.

What's up with these loony lefties obsession with lennon being one of them? Can't they understand people "evolve"?
I check out the Listverse Top Ten site on occasion and that was on their homepage. Never was a huge Beatles fan, but figured it would irk some libs and I'm not letting that opportunity slip by.

I had no idea Lennon was such a low-talent jerk (like they say, just look at the lyrics to Come Together).

Having a budget rejected isn't that unusual. Having ZERO votes for a budget is pathetic. Read more carefully.

Your telling me anything is an oxymoron. You are woefully uninformed. You buy anything and everything that president nobama lies about. You only offer excuses.
Now, be honest, at least try on the following;
- president nobama said pass my stimulus bill and the unemployment rate will not exceed 8%- show proof he did not make that statement. No excuses.
- president nobama said one of his first actions as president would be to close Gitmo - show proof that he did not make that statement. No excuses.
- president nobama whole campaigning said there were 57 states he had visited - show proof that shows he did not make that statement. No excuses.

1) he was referring to that report where the 8% originated.

2) he signed he order to close gitmo, Congress blocked it

3) was a gaffe

That ain't the race card. To imply that African Americans are not smart enough to get in Columbia & Harvard on their acadenmics is racist.

The Republican Brain (or How Liberal Journalists Distort Science to Prove Their Biases)

Here's a really good analysis of Mooney's book by an actual neuroscientist and not just a guy who writes about science. Here's a little bit:(be sure to read the whole article)

"Pervasive ignorance is nothing new, but with the advent of the internet the ignorant have easy access to science that is outside their area of expertise (or amateurism for that matter) and the misuse of science as a tool for manipulation has made the function and even purpose of the original studies grossly misunderstood....

"The point (and truth) is that we’ve got a lot of good ideas about some areas of the brain. It is absolutely true that the amygdala is activated in fear and anxiety responses. However, to say that this is *the* function of the amygdala or that increases in the size of the amygdala indicate a worldview that is warped by fear is journalistic extrapolation based on a pre-determined bias, nothing more.

The eagerness to use the results of these studies to justify his position would be laughable if the general population didn’t find neuroscience to be beyond their grasp. As it is, it can barely be said that a basic understanding of neuroscience is within the grasp of even today’s renowned neuroscientists—and they’ll tell you that themselves. The point is that interpreting science is difficult, answers are not easy to come by, and almost nothing is as simple as online political editorials would have you believe."

(My favorite part is that a smaller amygdala is associated with neurotics, fibromyalgia, OCD, alcohol dependence, PTSD, narcolepsy, schizophrenia, pedophilia, and liberals.)
