President Obama on Tuesday outlined a government-sponsored initiative to map the human brain, casting the proposal as a way to discover new cures for neurological disease and strengthen the economy. “Ideas are what power our economy,” Obama said in announcing the proposal from the White House East Room. “When we invest in the best ideas before anyone else does, our businesses and our workers can make the best products and deliver the best services before anyone else does.” The project would use about $100 million in federal money over the next fiscal year

They could start from the bottom.

With the Obamadork’s brain.

A single cell should be relatively easy to analyze.

The heck with mapping Obummer’s brain. Just drive in a couple of road signs with directions! All the roads lead to hell anyway.

Make no mistake, Cass Sunstein needs to know if humans with conservative ideology can be identified via brain MRI’s. This is far more sinister than merely ‘advancing science’. This is about eugenics and propagating the liberal herd. The conservative rejects go to FEMA camps.

“When we invest in the best ideas before anyone else does....”

How does this twit even begin to know what the best ideas are. His history indicates completely the opposite....

Further institutionalizing “Victim” status and the balkanization of America. Nothing to do with actual science.

We'd better slice up Barack Obama's brain and put it on display to verify this.

Obama will say that a neuron firing is the 'gay gene'. Retarded Americanz everywhere will nod in agreement at the scientific sounding statement and then go tell their friends in an effort to not sound like the high school dropout that they are.

Ideas are what power our economy.

He fails to say that it is not gov’t ideas that power the economy...it’s people ideas.

More social engineering tripe.

Just like everything else the feds want to get entrenched so that any cuts are stated as draconian cuts that will kill babies and stifle research. All of this research should be handled in the private sector.

According to the administration's outline of the program, those funds would be directed toward research that explores the activity of neural networks, invests in the data-analysis projects needed to sift through the large volume of information scientists expect to gather, and examines “how thoughts, emotions, actions, and memories are represented in the brain.”

To paraphrase China’s opinion today on Apple:

B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, is arrogant, does not care about Americans, and needs more adult supervision.

He’d make an excellent organ doner, and his brain to science should be the first to go.
