    I had one psych class in college and enjoyed it but then forgot it. I blame my mother and my penis size.  

    As for the rest of your long comment, I agree with much of it, but I hope you don't give up. There is progress being made, and that is reflected in the polling that has shown up on the front page in the last 24 hours. Progressive ideas are winning.

    I would also note that the sheer volume of money being spent by the other side, as well as the lengths they'll go to (who fucking fucks with voting rights?), shows to me that they are scared.

    Rand Paul is to civil liberties as the Disney Channel is to subtle and nuanced acting. On biblical prophesy: If you play the bible backwards, it says, "Paul is dead."

      to fruition here.

      It's really clarifying. I live and breathe that stuff, and it's in play in interpersonal interactions all the time - having a bit of knowledge can really help to smooth out situations.

      Like economics, it doesn't always transition to the macro in the same way. There's some counter intuitive stuff, or so it seems, until you see something like this:

      Orca get the cookies, dogs get the choke chain.

      And then it seems kind of obvious, and is a,"Doh!" moment.

      Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
