Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone
In an online article San Diego NBC television reports scientists (my emphasis) at Harvard and University of California at San Diego have reported the discovery of a Liberal gene. Now, I have often pondered the amazement of it all; that is, why anyone would choose a Liberal conscience. Now science purports to provide me an explanation to the puzzle and the Liberals an excuse for being. Eric S. Page in his reports says:
Researchers have determined that genetics could matter when it comes to some adults’ political leanings.
Looking at the last sentence just above, I have to admit that not all the young women in my high school class asked me to escort then to the prom (in fact none did) and I never was placed in the role of a hero, mentor or good-time Charlie by my male counter-parts. But, I was well-liked and respected most of the time, so I have to take exception to the sentence. Although I am not a trained scientist, I am a trained country boy and I have to say this finding is complete and utter (possibly udder) bull butter. In my mind there is simply no valid excuse for anyone to be cited as a Liberal or Progressive. I do not believe, and my mind is closed to the possibility that our Creator would be so cruel as to make a Liberal on purpose. It could be that the scientists aren’t blaming the Creator or even giving Him a role in the Liberals’ manufacture or heaven forbid, even know Him. Yet, one of the scientists has the following to say:
“It is the crucial interaction of two factors — the genetic predisposition and the environmental condition of having many friends in adolescence — that is associated with being more liberal,” according to the study.
Look, it is hard enough for me to accept anthropological (anthropogenic, as my scientist friend corrects) climate change/global warming and I sure have difficulty accepting this report as anywhere close to valid. What I do count it as is a monumental waste of your and my money. I wonder how much was spent on the study? We know a penny would have been too extravagant. Here’s the last paragraph of Mr. Page’s story:
“These findings suggest that political affiliation is not based solely on the kind of social environment people experience,” said Fowler, who is a professor of political science and medical genetics.
The researchers also said their findings held true no matter what the ethnicity, culture, sex or age of the subjects were.
I keep waiting for someone to slap me to wake me from this horrible dream. So much for that, it’s not going to happen.
Thanks and a flap of the cap to Mr. Page and NBC San Diego. Read the complete story here. And follow the Fox News link below for a broader story.

Fair Use Statement
Super-progressive radio is enjoyed by many around this increasingly “blue,” planet. For Pacifica radio, the gig may be coming to a close. Here’s one story saying so:
For Pacifica Radio, the Revolution is Ending
Far-left KPFK, otherwise known as Pacifica Radio, has been broadcasting progressive propaganda throughout California, and across the world, for many years. (In South Africa, where I lived for several years, you could hear archival Pacifica broadcasts by Noam Chomsky and other radicals late at night on community stations like Bush Radio.) Now, however, Pacifica may be collapsing from within, according to Hillel Aron of L.A. Weekly.
Part of the problem, Aron reports, is a highly public dispute with the network’s executive director, Summer Reese, who was fired but has “occupied” the building. Ratings are also low: “During an average 15-minute period, just 700 people listen to its Los Angeles station, 90.7 FM KPFK, for at least five minutes…Pacifica’s New York station, WBAI, is even worse off.” And the feds are cutting off grant funds because of shoddy accounting.
The whole drama is reminiscent of Monty Python’s The Life of Brian, where rival factions of Jewish resistance groups are too busy fighting each other to resist the Romans. (The L.A. Weekly article was forwarded to me by a correspondent who noted, laughingly: “American left in a Pretzel, all the conflicts wrapped in 1 radio station.”)
The station itself is divided into factions, Aron says, one of which favors news while the other prefers spiritual programming. Aron provides a classic quote (language warning):
“If you fired half the staff around here, it would work better,” [host] Masters says. “They’re just useless people with no work ethic — they don’t give a f— about anything. They act like they’re doing you a favor if they get the program up without glitches. It’s surreal.”
Masters also cites factions on the board: the “Radio Havana” group and the “conspiracy and quackery crowd.”

Contrary to the spew coming from some progressive politicos and their supporting media cohorts, progressive groups were not dealt the same treatment the Tea Party and other conservative organizations.
As we reported yesterday, favored friends and relatives of progressives in power were chosen for special beneficial treatment for tax exempt status. Now more evidence has developed or been pushed forward refuting any supposition the progressives were harshly dealt with.
What has been revealed and what will be revealed in the future is the progressives and communists have a bucket of eels slipping away from their previously “accepted,” lies toward the truth about their real working mendacity.

There is nothing; absolutely nothing, more despicable than individuals attempting to claim transparency and truth when their records show they are as slick as an octopus escape artist .

Whether the deception deals with Fast and Furious, Benghazi or improper IRS targeting they can’t hide all of the lies by themselves. They have to have a willing and compliant cache of media types to aid their escape from responsibility. Since most of the media deceivers are well-practiced Obama, Holder and Hillary just happen to have their cadres of media allies.

Progressive Majority candidates (Photo credit: KCIvey)
The Progressive Majority is an organization desiring to elect municipal, county, state and federal candidates. It has been listed in Discover The Networks since at least 2003. Now it and fellow traveler organizations are using every method available to them to pass socialist laws and elect progressive candidates.
They conduct online and face-to-face training in all of their key areas of interest and have started sending their material and articles to many New Mexico government entities. We believe this is one reason there has been a marked increase in the number of progressive bills and ordinances introduced in municipal, county and state governing bodies.
We recommend you follow the link below and learn how to use all the bells and whistles provided by Discover The Networks. Not only will you find information on The Progressive Majority, but you’ll be able to download or just access connection mapping and other connection material on other leftist organizations.

Most of the residents of the United States, employed in the private sector, have known or suspected for years, public employees are paid more and are provided better benefits than are private sector employees.
If you happen to be among the American citizens not sharing in the above knowledge, you can find the information by following the story found through the link pasted below:
