    That means you're an "undisclosed."

    Use tricky (subliminal?) political ads to sway the voters and try to increase the exposure to (and alter the slant of?) government provided education. It is interesting that entire states would seem to have more folks with similar brain activity patterns and that city folks and country folks would also tend to have different "political lean" brain wiring patterns. Does this mean that the brain affects the environment or that the environment affects the brain?

Anywho, for those interested in this peer reviewed "junk science", here is the Cambridge University link:

    I hope you appreciate that your opinion of my opinion is of even less value than the junk science you cite.

    Ah, so you were involved in the peer review process to get this article published? Good to know. What makes it junk science in your non-scientific opinion?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    No. Actually I think argueing semantics is absolutly stupid. I would not have mentioned your mistake, had you not made it the basis of you statement, when accused me of not understanding the term.
