Besides being the first rap artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and holding the record for the most number one albums by a solo artist, JAY-Z's body of work stands as a monumental contribution to American culture.
The baby boomers as a cohort are now in their 50s, 60s and 70s — and I think that the collective aging of our populations is producing a rightward shift in our politics that is as temporary in nature as the leftward shift of the 60s and 70s, when these people first became old enough to vote.
Schitzengigles I like it… To create a conservative from a liberal you must first addle the brain! But liberals can do the same.
Liberal thinks need to go beyound the selfish instinct. Discover has officially reached a new low. The title of the article and comments 2, 3, and 4 especially 2 are hateful and unsupportable and almost silly comments.
Where are your snide comments about them. No more brain-addling jokes, either. Many hand sanitizers contain some very toxic chemicals that can, in fact, affect the brain, at least temporarily. More sensitive people can experience effects such as short term memory loss, confusion, and mood changes from relatively minor toxic exposures.
It would be interesting to repeat this part of the study and measure for some of these other possible effects as well to determine whether or not the chemical itself might be the cause of the tempoary shift in ideology.
Hmm, could there be a connection between our increasingly polluted environment and more toxic consumer products anti-bacterial, stain-resistant, UV-protected, …you name it and an increasingly conservative and irrational political climate?
Food for thought, and further research.

Matt So are there circumstances that cause conservatives to make liberal statements? RM But what about Uncle Elmer? Why bring up long-term changes and then change the subject. Long-term ideological changes surely have more of an impact than short term ones.
Why, then, are they less interesting?
When I started to pay attention, and thus became educated on what was happening, I could not logically hold together the beliefs that those on the Left kept maintaining.In , Paul Graham wrote How To Disagree Better, ranking arguments on a scale from name-calling to explicitly refuting the other person’s central point..
And that’s why, ever since , Internet arguments have generally been civil and productive. Graham’s hierarchy is useful for its intended purpose, but it isn’t really a hierarchy of disagreements. Many points come up in the abortion debate.
Here's a look at abortion from both sides: 10 arguments for abortion and 10 arguments against abortion, for a total of 20 statements that represent a range of topics as seen from both sides. The Abortion Debate Purposes of this Paper The purposes of this paper are (1) to show the weaknesses, invalidity, and irrelevancy of those arguments which have such flaws -- on both sides of the abortion issue, and (2) to show what the more important, relevant, and valid issues are in deciding the rightness or wrongness of abortion.
Evangelii Gaudium, Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis, 1. The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness.
Saad lists several categories of evidence that can make up a nomological network, including psychological, cross-temporal, cross-cultural, theoretical, and medical.
