Maybe Liberals DO Have More Fun

Good morning, future Democrat!

That’s my takeaway from this new study:

Ménage à trois? Wild orgies? One night stands? Who says science can’t be sexy?

Certainly not Binghamton University researchers, who are hard at work uncovering the sultry secrets behind human sexual behavior.

The team – led by Dr. Justin Garcia – recently identified a dopamine receptor gene known as DRD4 that is purportedly linked to chronic infidelity and "uncommitted" one-night stands.

And that’s not all. This same gene has also been linked to “alcoholism, gambling addiction and… political liberalism, along with "openness" to new social situations.”

Being born with this DRD4 dopamine receptor gene seems to make people more willing to engage in irrational, high-risk behaviors.  “In cases of uncommitted sex, the risks are high, the rewards substantial and the motivation variable – all elements that ensure a dopamine ‘rush,’” the study’s author says.

Hmmm…. high risk, a drug ‘rush’…and somebody else gets screwed? Sounds like liberalism to me.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
