  •  cognitive disconnect (1+ / 0-)

    I have wondered about the cognitive disconnect people have with reality.  This type of thinking exist everywhere.  I was in a doctor’s office for an infusion and everyone there goes in on the same day so we are all bound by the IV and were talking politics before the election.  So many of them were going to vote R and couldn't stand the out of control spending, mandated health insurance etc... Well almost everyone there is on disability.... WTF, they don’t realize that their benefits are to someone else an entailment that the R's want to cut.  Half of the others complain about medical coverage, but "I will be dammed if the government gets involved".  I just don’t see how people can be so blind to their own situation.  To them it’s the other people who are using/abusing the system not them.
