    Nothing is forever, but it's highly unlikely. We shouldn't hurt ourselves because we're scared of might bes and maybes.

    All terrorists are private, even ones like Blackwater, with State sponsorship. Just keep your head in the sand Grant, keep ignoring that the policies that you support and advocate are emboldening terrorism and you'll be having plenty more of it.

    But it creates fear, and fear leads to war that these hawks and warmongers dream about at night. "Do we have to wait for the smoking gun to come in the form of a mushroom cloud over a US city"!!!!! Oh yeah, there's nothing like pushing FEAR to shore up support of war.

    Then how about we triple shore up our borders so they can't just walk in here like it's nothing. I suspect hundreds, if not thousands, have entered the U.S. in recent months.

    You're funny buddy.

    Recent converging studies are showing that liberals tend to have a larger and/or more active anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC—useful in detecting and judging conflict and error—and conservatives are more likely to have an enlarged amygdala, where the development and storage of emotional memories takes place. More than one study has shown these same results, which is why I felt it was worth investigating.

    State sponsorship is a different situation than a lone terrorist and his followers.

    Who will stop them?

    Your Brain on Politics: The Cognitive Neuroscience of Liberals and Conservatives : The Intersection
    Yes, that is why liberals invented the group hug and watch countless hours of TV court shows and Jerry Springer knock-offs.

    Liberals wallow in misery, lash out against anyone they deem to be happier or more successful, and generally sit mired in self-loathing bitterness. You rarely meet a happy liberal.

    And your "study" was written by liberals who wrote a book called "The Republican War on Science". Nice try, though.

    That Canadian border is weak, but they don't have to sneak in. They can do it legally just as easily. And they don't have to be from Iraq, or Iran, or Syria. You better seek a better solution than war and border security.
