In other words, reality has a liberal bias.It always has and it always will.Conservatives try desperately to hold onto the frozen past and maintain pointless, uninspired traditions, but it's all just one big pathetic time in a bottle obsession impeding all forward progress.Religion has nothing to do with reality; it's nice to see more people are noticing that.Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels; it's nice to see more people are noticing that.Thinking is good for you; it's nice to see some Americans are firing up their brains independent of our corrupt political duopoly that has reduced our public policy to a cash-and-carry fast food shack.Politics often fails societies, although occasionally it has its moments of redemption.Government can do good and bad; conservative ideologies help it fail spectacularly.It will be nice to see how a fresh generation of youngsters reacts to the growing realization and eventual outrage at their elders for creating a cesspool of economic disparity, injustice, moneyed speech and limited opportunity so a few sociopaths could have all the marbles.I hope the age of individualism puts the age of narcissistic greed in the guillotine it so truly deserves.Conservatism has no logical or relevant place in a progressive society; it has proved its utter uselessness and irrelevancy repeatedly.The only thing saving conservatism is fear of reality, fear of change and fear of others.Fear and 1% tax cuts: Conservativism 2014.
For me the words that are really going out-of-style fast are "nice," "good character," "ethical," and "honest." I just don't see much of those around anymore in public life.
It is no coincidence that right-wingers tend to be less well educated and that there exists an ever-lengthening list of provably untrue things that large minorities (and sometimes actual majorities) they believe to be true. WMD's were found in Iraq; Obama is a Kenyan/Terrorist/Muslim; the universe was created in 6 days 5000 years ago; economic policies they don't like or understand are "socialistic"; death panels; radical leftists control academia; that taxes have gone up under Obama; climate change science is a hoax; Benghazi was some sort of Obama-plot; etc., etc., etc. So the question is NOT whether or not they vote their best interests; the question is whether or not they are poorly educated, ill-informed, and simple-minded enough to vote for leaders who cynically dog-whistle confirmation of all that baloney.
And guess what? In Norway, all the fast food workers are young Swedes, who are being exploited by the Norwegians. This sort of thing happens all over the world.
Wow the news cycle is way too fast. It has been less than 24 hours and this article is no longer the top story? It's a shame since this is the best reporting the Times has done in years.
Kids grow up fast these days. I say we'd better start teaching those three distinct purposes of an education in high school.
What keeps people fit, can be done indoors or out, and carries with it additional social benefits - it is called work - and can be done at a slow or a fast pace - whatever is desired!
first thing, pregnancy does and always has contributed to mortality of women. And condoms do not always work. Maybe you males would know some of this if you didn't run off so fast.
