Liberalism & Deja Vu

Déjà vu and Liberalism Explained?

Psychologist Alan Brown of Southern Methodist University points out in a study – a quote from the article”
“Déjà vu tends to peak around the late teens and early 20s and then tapers off,” Brown says. He adds that it tends to happen two or three times a year among younger adults, decreasing to once a year in midlife and with older adults, perhaps as seldom as once every four or five years.
What else increases your odds? If you have a higher level of education or income. If you’re liberal rather than conservative. If you travel. If you’ve had it once, you’re likely to have it again. “
But the more interesting aspect of the article for me is the theory behind the reason for the occurrence of déjà vu. The link between epileptic seizures and déjà vu speaks volumes about the reasons why there is such an animal as a “Liberal”.
One of the theories postulated in the article is the malfunctioning of the nerve paths from the sensory organs to the brain. The theory states there may be an “irregular activity” occurring, such as perhaps voting for John Kerry. When that happens the rate at which the signals causing you to vote for John “the Lurch” Kerry are slower than a normal signal would travel through a conservatives head. When the signals are slowed down at one pathway and arrive at another pathway terminus faster, such as GW Bush winning the election, the typical Lefty Loony Liberal brain “lurches”. Thus causing déjà vu.
This occurs because the neurological event which caused the lurch throws one of the paths out of sync. Thereby describing the vast majority of Liberalists in this country. “Out of Sync” Could be the name for a John Kerry band.
But back to the theory, one of the pathways has a neurological event which slows that pathway down a bit. Just like the tax hike Billy Clinton (and Bush 41) gave us. It didn’t shoot the economy in the head immediately, only after the business sector caught up with the problem – confiscation of the disposable income of a large segment of the TAX PAYING public. (Note that not all Americans actually PAY taxes). But as the business sector wound down from its Reagan Heydays of increasing disposable income, along comes the new kid on the block GW, with an economy showing all the signs of being badly crippled.
Now back to the theory, one pathway is slower and one pathway is at normal speed. The normal speed path gives the brain the information and when the slow “liberal” path finally delivers the information the brain believes it’s already seen that information before. Which in the case of the tax hikes- it had. Every time a Democratic (or Republican) President got an itch for the latest and greatest toy (Social Program) to End Poverty, End Illiteracy, End Drug Use, or End Ugly Americans! A face lift for every American who can’t afford one, but really, really wants one.
Another theory though points toward “implicit memory interpretation.” A feeling of” inexplicable familiarity” when your taxes are raised again. Not because you recognize the feeling of paying more to the government, most of won’t see that. We pay ‘estimated taxes’ or have ‘withholding taxes’ taken out before we even see the paycheck. No, it’s far more insidious than simply being light in the wallet. It’s when you notice that even the panhandlers have nicer shoes than you do. Or the folks picking up commodities at the local food bank eat better than you do. That’s when even the most stalwart conservative can have niggling little thoughts about giving up the sixty hour week at work to go on welfare and rake in the subsidies!
In short, (not my strong suit) whether through a slower pathway or an implicit memory interpretation, such as would be the case when a liberal social program goes awry and they need a new interpretation why it was Reagan’s fault. The earmarks of the cause for Lefty Loony Liberalism is nigh!
To support the fight to End Liberalism, simply send more tax dollars to the Higher Education Facility of your choice.
