I can't wait for someone to drop this one in real life around me.  Also, the people who are most likely to be fooled by this are seniors that vote Republican that could be helped by this research

I'm pretty sure Eric Cantor reenacts naval battles with his own poop in the toilet.

When I want to ask someone about brain related research, I ask Eric Cantor.

You might think that after Reagan, the Republicans might have a slightly deeper appreciation of the devastating effects of Alzheimer's. Of course, you'd be wrong but, you know . . . you might think that.

There's no reason for the two scenarios to be exclusive of each other.

I've been a registered R my whole adult life. The sheer depths of idiocy in the present Republican party are absolutely astonishing.

Putting "think" and "Republican" in the same sentence doesn't work at all any more.
 
2013-02-20 12:40:05 PM  
Maybe they just forgot how effective those programs are.
 
2013-02-20 12:40:31 PM  
I suppose if the researches developed their own game for the testing, at the cost of an additional $2 million, he would have been fine with it.

That would be the GOP's SOP. Go the more expensive route, because the cheaper more effective one might benefit someone in a way they don't like.

Anybody got a link to the study itself, preferably one which shows that it actually helps combat alzheimers?
I'm sure my boss is going to repeat this to me inside the next week

"hurrr hurrr Obama's spending your tax money to let old people play warcraft."
"Yeah, it's part of a study on how to treat alheimers - which appears to work.  You know, that thing your mother has that makes her require around-the-clock nursing care."

Those Republican leaders will rue the day when they need those treatments for Alzheimer's. Like 10 years ago.

I'm sure their response would be that at one time the world WAS flat, but then God turned it into a perfect sphere, presumbably around the time He left the firmament fall to cause the Flood and disease.

Because Liberal spenders have such a brilliant track record.


Solar Trust of America: FAIL! - Filed Bankruptcy in Oakland, CA, April 3, 2012

Bright Source: FAIL! - Bright Source warned Obama's Energy Department officials in March 2011 that delays in approving a $1.6 billion U.S. loan guarantee would embarrass the White House and force the solar-energy company to close. Bright Source lost billions of dollars but is getting more money to keep trying. Can you say, "This isn't working Mr. President?"

Solyndra: FAIL! - Obama gave $500,000,000 (that's a HALF BILLION!) in taxpayer money to Solyndra who shut its doors and laid off 1100 workers in August 2011 after billions in losses due to failure to make a solar product that works! Barack Obama was not vetted before being elected President and neither was Solyndra before Mr. Obama threw that taxpayer money down the drain of unproven technology.

LSP Energy: FAIL! - LSPEnergy LP filed bankruptcy protection and a sale of its assets in Feb 2012

Energy Conversion Devices: FAIL! - On February 14, 2012 Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy

Abound Solar: FAIL! - Abound Solar received a $400 million loan guarantee from Barack Obama then announced in June, 2012 that it would file for bankruptcy. Many of these failed corporations, such as Abound, donated MILLIONS and continue to donate to Barack Obama's campaign. Can you say, "Democrat Slush Fund"? Yes this is illegal. But Democrats are being protected from being prosecuted, for now.

SunPower: FAIL! - SunPower stopped producing solar cells in 2011 at near bankruptcy then restructured with the help of, get this, oil giant TOTAL, Inc. who owns 60% stake in SunPower. Irony? The company is still struggling.

Beacon Power: FAIL! - Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy protection in October, 2011 just a year after Obama approved a $43 million Government loan guarantee. They remain barely in business, still struggling to make energy that makes sense or that works at all.

Ecotality: FAIL! - ECOtality, a San Francisco green-tech company that never earned any money and remains on the verge of bankruptcy after receiving roughly $115 million in two loan guarantees from President Obama, who wants to do some more of this kind of Democrat Slush Fund Guarantees after he is elected to a 2nd term.

A123 Solar: FAIL! - A123 Solar received $279 million from taxpayers thanks to President Obama's Department of Energy loan guarantees even after the Solyndra bankruptcy and is getting another $500M from Obama after a loss of $400M.

UniSolar: FAIL! - Uni-Solar filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy in June 20, 2012 after laying off hundreds of workers. UniSolar received even more Obama money after showing now progress, no profits and is still failing... yet they still remain in business with Obama's help.


Azure Dynamics: FAIL! - Azure Dynamics filed for bankruptcy in June , 2012 wasting millions in Obama "Stimulus" money and received abatement on taxes owed and and several tax credits.Azure Dynamics LLC filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the US.Azure laid off 120 of its 160 employees in Oak Park; Boston; Vancouver, British Columbia; and the UK.

Evergreen Solar: FAIL! - Evergreen Solar received $527 Million in Taxpayer money from Obama and filed bankruptcy in late 2011. Evergreen, which closed its taxpayer-supported Devens factory in March, 2011 cut more than 1800 jobs. Evergreen's $450 million factory, turned out to be a colossal "waste" of taxpayer money.

Ener1: FAIL! Ener1 Inc. received a $118 million U.S. Energy Department grant from President Obama to make electric-car batteries but filed for bankruptcy protection January 2012 after defaulting on bond debt.

I'm not saying that spending money researching ways to treat Alzheimers is bad, but what study has shown that this is an effective treatment? Isn't that what the money in question is for, to fund studies of its effectiveness? And does it treat AD or the symptoms of AD, because to my knowledge there is no treatment to slow or reverse AD.

If the study had been remembering shapes and colors instead no doubt Cantor would be mad about that. Government spends $1.2 million for old people to look at shapes and colors!

Just forget about the actual research and focus on the fact that a game was involved.

The GOP is against stem cell therapies, even those that aren't derived from fetal stem cells.
The GOP is against MMJ - even simply studying it for the possibility of medical uses (even though we've studied that to death already and the science comes out in favor of further study).
The GOP is against behavioral psychology (unless we start re-classifying homsexuality and atheism as mental illnesses).
The GOP is against research into mind-controlled robotics (Bachmann's "fully-functioning robot-brain in a mouse" or whatever hysteria she vomited out).
The GOP is against cognitive therapies for Alzheimer's patients.

In the war on cancer, the GOP takes cancer's side since palliative care is cheaper than an aggressive radiation regimen. Besides which, palliative care will only take 6 months to "run its course", but healing someone may take YEARS!

// the above isn't specifically true of the GOP, but that's what objectivism gets you
