meat0918: Behold! The power of the media doesn't necessarily hold sway over what you see with your own eyes.


I'd argue this demonstrates the reverse.

GameSprocket: namatad: toss in the average IQ is 100 and then include people below average in your sample (which is required) and you get ... shudder

Um, the average IQ is always 100. The scale gets adjusted to make that happen.


HEH
I know ....
sort of kind of

but you dont think that the average has really moved a lot in the last .... 20-50 years?
it certainly has not move up ....
on the other hand, if you look at the population which is the ~33% below the mean, (I figure the bottom 17% are just plain mentally handicapped ...), these people vote and take part in these polls ... and they scare the crap out of me.

plus, they dont even know what they dont know.

My state must be doing good because of Obama, because Romney asked Governor Scott to shut up about how much better Florida is doing now.

Myself and everyone around me has seen their financial situation improve over the last year, but I watch Fox New so I know I must be wrong.

Ladies and Gentlemen: the most succinct and apt description of right-wing american politics:

qorkfiend: Known: Obama is destroying America.
Unknown: Things Obama has actually done to destroy America.

Diogenes: Famous Thamas: This is a case of known vs. the unknown.

I think it's a case of cognitive dissonance.


I think it's a fair description.

Known: Obama is destroying America.
Unknown: Things Obama has actually done to destroy America.

This is a case of known vs. the unknown.

It is very easy to assign blame for all of the problems to the "great unknown", or the areas/places you do not see or interact with on a day to day basis.

The people and places you know might make more sense to you, and when you constantly hear that everything is in the shiatter you have to assign that blame somewhere.

I know plenty of cases in medical malpractice where a patient wanted to sue the surgeon or specialist, ie: Someone they have only seen once or twice. However, when told that it was their primary care doc who would likely bear the blame, many of them have backed off because they knew that doc for years.

meat0918: you may have friends out of work for a long time finally getting a job


The weird thing is that I don't know anyone who is out of a job. In fact, I don't know anyone who lost a job without cause in the past few years. I think it is just a matter of demographics and the fact that many of the local blue-collar had already been lost. The housing market has still sucked.

How is that the reverse of "Things are great locally, but suck everywhere else"?
