    These hacks live in an echo chamber. It's been beaten into their heads repeatedly that liberals are to blame for EVERYTHING BAD that they are literally incapable of doing anything but regurgitating that. To them, it's truth, the ugly side of human nature boiled down to a catchphrase they can barf back up onto the forum any time, like a reflex, when they see something obviously bad. It's unbelievably frustrating, since it serves to do nothing but turn every thread into a ****ing cesspool where people who can think attempt to point out that it's utterly stupid, lest someone else be dissuaded by such infantile hackery.

    The right will eventually realize Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck types were the worst thing to ever happen to them...

    Nothing in your sig is "probability" or "empirical data." Present it, please.

    Exactly. The blind singlemindedness of these anti-liberals is as predictable as it is ignorant. Any society that has two different ideologies is going to see conflict, and that conflict will create issues. Neither ideology is to blame; it's the conflict, and how significant that conflict is depends on how loud and how blind the extremists of each ideology are. Another poster started a thread about divisiveness... and then created divisiveness by his own extremist and misinformed post. What we see here is an excellent example of partisans who don't care one iota of looking for solutions; they just look at who to blame things on.

    So, back to the thread concept. What do you think are some of the reasons that we see people having such an issue with gratification delay? I see it as a reaction to technological advances.

    Partly that; partly that in an effort to feed our growing consumerism, these retailers have basically made it so they're almost ALWAYS open and what people want is nearly ALWAYS accessible. The urge for instant gratification only can be sated if someone is there to instantly gratify.

    Great idea.

    It seems I may have a differing view.

    I hail from the "two ears one mouth" school of learning. Will you speak to the highlighted above ? I ask not for citations; only your awareness based on your life's learning.

    I look forward to listening.

    Great day to ya' CC

    That's a really good point. About 20 years ago, there were 4 24 hour supermarkets within 10 miles of me. Now there are none. I often find myself getting angry at those supermarket chains for altering their hours and not being immediately accessible to my needs. This enhances my technology presentation and adds to it neatly.
