    I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    We all need a diversion from ISU football, so here it is. A new scientific study has found that the brains of liberals are more flexible in their thinking. (i.e. smarter ) Of course conservatives are rejecting the research, but that's only because they're closed-minded just like the research indicates. Here's a link to an article about the study.

    whoa boy, here we go.....


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I'm sorry for my previous comment. It is obviously caused by my childhood, and therefore not my fault. I'm sure somebody can recommend a tolerance class for me

    I'm sure Stalin was also pretty smart.

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    I'm a "liberatrian republican free marketeer" so does that make me a conservative or a liberal?

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    Liberals and smarter should not be used in the same sentence without much validation, excuses and blame on the republican party for anything going wrong.....

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    This research has really enlightened me. I used to look down on Conservatives, but now I realize it's a physiological thing. I always thought being conservative was a choice. Now I realize they are just born that way. From now on I'll try to be more tolerant of those that lean to the right.

    Gee, does that mean that smart people are infant brain sucking, godless, cheating, swindling and liars too?

    I'm out-numbered by conservatives at least 5 to 1 over here so I already have to be tolerant. I guess now I'll be able to understand why they lean to the wrong(or would that be right?)side.
