It Is S.A.D.: The Leftist Brain Exposed
Purpose of the book: In this book I will examine the obvious differences between Leftist
and Conservative thinking.
From these we will study examples of the differences; note the logical inconsistencies;
recognize the most important difference, and then begin drawing conclusions. In the final
analysis, you will learn why I believe the Leftist brain suffers a sincere disability. They
have an impaired ability to use common sense. This stands alone as the distinguishing
feature of difference. How that occurs, is our quest.
My Background: I am not a licensed specialist in Psychology or in the medical sciences. I
am, however, inquisitive and a good student of many fields of professional expertise. As
an active trial attorney for over 34 years, I examined, cross examined and studied just
about every recognized profession. For several years I specialized in defending and
litigating in the medical profession. To be a good trial attorney one has to develop a rapid
ability to act and react to the personalities in a court room. Of course the witnesses and
parties are extremely important, but so are the clerks, bailiffs, other attorneys and
certainly the Judge and Jury. I became very good at it and this talent has assisted me
greatly in this quest.
My other life experiences have also helped. In making the decisions and conclusions
found in this book, I was not handicapped by being a psychologist or Psychiatric
Those professions, like all, become mired down in categories and names peculiar to them.
I had no such limitation. Here is a short overview of why I believe I can give you an
adequate explanation on the subject.
I received a History and Political Science Degree at Stanford University, and earned an
ROTC commission as an officer. I then did 2 plus years as an Armored Officer at Fort
Knox, Kentucky and Fulda, Germany. In Germany I helped guard the then East/West
Border separating the country.
Upon returning to civilian life, I finished Law School at the University Of Southern
California (USC). During this time, on a dare, I obtained a commission as a Naval
Intelligence officer and to this very day have good friends I met in that service. I stayed
with it until I was riffed with the Vietnam wind down.
My hobbies have been surfing, sailing, model building, car restoration, music playing,
jass history, collection of all matter of things, an avid reader and student of history, father
and coach of little league and soccer. Every day I try to play the piano, practice some
brass instruments and play the Scottish Pipes. At one time I was the host of a TV show
talk show. For some 16 years I hosted a Jass show on Radio, called ?Jassdom Hall?.
Currently I have a Conservative talk show. I call it, ?theroostercrows.net?, a wakeup call.
In all of varied interests, I am provided help and support by my wonderful wife Susan.
Thinking about politics and political beliefs hit me early on. Mother was always in one
cause or another. My parents divorced when I was 6. Father was your typical boot straps
business man who felt government was in his way. He was Conservative. Neither ever
took part in politics, as far as I know.
