    Fine, Mike.

    Residente will not vote for Clinton, and will to anyone within earshot about that not vote.

    When Residente and cronies then make a demand on President Clinton, President Clinton will tell them to fuck the fuck right off.

    Politics, how does it work?

    The only surprise being the masters of NIH shark pool bloodletting who obstinately refuse to comprehend such basic facts.

    I am astounded, this is even more drastic and evil than the attacks on Canada’s National Research Council under the Harper Luddites and criminals.

    Is Addiction a Learning Disorder?

    I think framing this as a disorder is misguided. Addiction ‘in the brain’ -to me- seems little different from general preference learning, the mostly negative consequences of ‘substance abuse’ -apart from specific detrimental consequences of habitual intake of some substances- largely seem to be a kind of socially imposed punishment for showing a preference which is not shared by the general population and as such not deemed socially acceptable.
