I have no doubt that the President and all the Members of Congress who this week expressed concern for unemployed veterans were sincere. But I also believe that, for the majority of them, moving young veterans into jobs is a much lower priority for them than to continue high levels of immigration to satisfy one special interest group or another. What our country's unemployed veterans have to keep in mind is that Pres. Congress & President on Veterans Day Still Prefer To Give Jobs To Immigrants

Explanations > Theories > Cognitive Dissonance Description | Research | Example | So What? | See also | References Description This is the feeling of uncomfortable tension which comes from holding two conflicting thoughts in the mind at the same time. Cognitive Dissonance
Cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation. It therefore occurs when there is a need to accommodate new ideas, and it may be necessary for it to develop so that we become "open" to them. Neighbour (1992) makes the generation of appropriate dissonance into a major feature of tutorial (and other) teaching: he shows how to drive this kind of intellectual wedge between learners' current beliefs and "reality". Beyond this benign if uncomfortable aspect, however, dissonance can go "over the top", leading to two interesting side-effects for learning: Cognitive Dissonance and learning
"Humans are not a rational animal, but a rationalizing one" - Leon Festinger Social psychologists refer to cognitive dissonance as the presence of incongruent relations among cognitions that frequently results in excessive mental stress and discomfort. Ultimately, individuals who hold two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas and/or values frequently experience cognitive dissonance. This stress and discomfort may also arise within an individual who holds a belief and performs a contradictory action or reaction. For example, an individual is likely to experience dissonance if he or she is addicted to smoking cigarettes and continues to smoke despite believing it is unhealthy. Leon Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. Cognitive dissonance

If you've filled up a car recently, you surely think that the price of gas is too high. Of course, you've seen the data--gas is much more expensive in other parts of the world than in America, but that doesn't change how it effects your wallet at the gas station. But take away arguments about which countries subsidize or tax gas the most and focus on the costs of simply using gasoline that aren't included in the price, and you start to realize you are getting a good deal, even at $4 a gallon. The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) recently put out a video of their efforts to track the costs of all the externalities of a gallon of gas; the unseen costs that we pay because of each gallon we use. And there are lots of them: The True Price Of Gas: What It Should Really Cost To Fill Up | Fast Company
