  •  It's funny how many people attribute CT (4+ / 0-)

    to the problems of the world.  Human nature.

      We are continually searching for larger patterns that we can fit what we see around us into. It was a survival trait when we first came down from the trees.

      Most of us have evolved to the point where we can handle a level of uncertainty & disorganization & a lack of simple explanations in the world around us. CTs & fundie religions of all stripes survive & prosper because of those who haven't.

      It's not a "fiscal cliff," it's a Fiscal Bluff--so why don't we call them on it?
