    I was griping to a friend the other day about my wing-nut in-laws wanting to cut the deficit and fully fund Medicare payments to doctors, even though it will cost $250 billion.

    Her response was that everyone looks out for their own interests.  My reply was that Republicans and Teabaggers only look out for themselves, progressives and liberals see the big picture.  We can empathize with others who are hurting, and not be threatened by them.  

    I dunno.  How are some people all "me,me,me" (apologies to dKos user with that name), and others are more concerned with the collective well-being of everyone in our society?

    There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

      BTW, I came to my "conservatives are narcissists" recognition through a kind of reverse-engineering process. If the cardinal trait of liberals is empathy, and empathy consists of awareness of others, their situations, and their feelings, and if conservatives lack empathy, then what can we say about conservatives? That they are narcissists.
